  • The previous top of the range, the FZ200, had a filter thread on the lens so I would assume the FZ1000 does as well.

  • I'm sure making these images pollutes the environment far less than the extraction, processing, manufacture, and transportation of the materials needed to make the 5D.

  • Hi Mario, my Taiwanese wife would disagree. Long-time KMT might refer to themselves as Chinese, but others don't. In terms of ethnicity, some will use Chinese but since Chinese isn't a true...

  • Thanks for the clarification, Revenant. So what is the patent/copyright infringement case with this camera?

  • Do you mean the original Kodak targeted the same low-end market, with the Box Brownie etc, and indeed look where it got them - one of the biggest photography companies in the world for many, many...

  • ThePhillips, Taiwan is technically one of the two 'Chinas' - Taiwan's official name being the Republic of China (it's a democracy) versus China's official name of the Peoples Republic of China -...

  • Is this referring to Nikon suing them for copying the design of the Nikon 1? They've clearly changed the design now so I don't see an issue.

  • Well Samsung already have an 18-200 - it's not great but this Tamron, like pretty much all 18-200s, is probably not great either.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Newhaven, Edinburgh
    Placed 14th in the challenge.
  • To Impulses: the price will drop, sure, but good models in the FZ range do get quite a loyal following and prices remain higher than for compacts etc. Resale value is a bit higher as well.

  • Does anyone ever 'need' a professional photographer to record events in their life? It's a luxury surely.

  • Camerastore make great videos, and the hosts are very likeable. But remember they're the CameraSTORE.

    I bought 40 canons for my galleon, only to find they didn't fire underwater. Canon tech support was useless. I'm never buying a canon again.

    @ UnitedNations, Greynard and the original poster, chillgreg, were being ironic. They were making fun of the same closed-mindedness that you hate. Greynard is British and chillgreg is Australian,...

    The use of English by Asian companies is no indication they are targeting the English-speaking market. English words or words that sound English, sometimes mangled, are often used to convey a sense...

    techno, you're living in a dreamworld if you think Samsung will suddenly come out with a sensor that beats whatever Sony is putting out. The reason? Sensors are big business for Sony, and they...

    Their lens line-up is very good quality, with most of the primes in particular being superb. The small size of the 16, 30, and 20mm primes is also a big selling point (although less so for this...

  • A lot of the Nikon 1 range are pretty much as small as the RX100 (excluding their lenses). Not such what definition of 'exciting' you're using though, perhaps you mean most of the Nikon 1 range...
