solarsky: Is the video 10-bit 4K MJPEG with C-Log OR WHAT?!

@Dr_Jon Perhaps you should take a look at advancements in the area of camera-side processing-technology...

@Dr_Jon I'm hoping that'll be more clear once the GH5 is announced.

@Tiderace Right on for pointing that out.

In reply to:

Matthew Miller: Nifty.

It'd be more a more interesting if the filters were attached to lenses at the time. A lot of the energy from the drop goes into the bounce....

@Matthew Miller I think what Greg VdB was getting to is that glass is a Bose-Einstein condensate, hence a non-newtonian fluid, to which impact velocity applies in a variance divergent from Newton's third law of motion (sickness ?). But this isn't ordinary glass, being a glass-ceramic hybrid material. And where do we go from here?

On Connect post Panasonic to launch Lumix DMC-CM10 without phone functionality (132 comments in total)
In reply to:

GodSpeaks: No phone functionality? What the %$#@&*.

I own the CM1 and it is an outstanding camera, but it is also MY PHONE, and I use it as my phone exclusively.

The advantage of the CM1 (apparantly not the CM10), is that I can carry a very capable and pocketable camera and smartphone in a single unit.

Sorry Panasonic, I do not get it. Why remove the phone capabilities, when one still needs a SIM card for 'other' connectivity?

Am I missing something here?

Yes, it costs a lot more in import duties, etc., especially in the European market, so it'll be way less of a business risk for them to sell those "new", "unphony" phone-cameras here in Europe. Just look at all the duties for selling a camera phone in Germany. It's a serious business risk...

solarsky: The Sigma SD1 Merrill was omitted again, as usual. When will they learn...

At least here in Germany the SD1 Merrill is regularly sold below $1000. Has been so for almost two years.

Rumle: damn, as soon as soon as Sony owns this marked we might see a decline in progression and innovation.. And with this buy they have very little competition.

There's still Dongbu HiTek making the Foveon sensors for Sigma ;-)

In reply to:

solarsky: Where's the SD1 successor?!

@Cartagena Photo Really? I use a Sigma DP3 Merrill and a Sigma DP2s. Had a Canon 5D Mk II before, but wasn't impressed by the overall package. My interest, and this is valid for many Sigma camera users, is to get an updated version of the 5-year-old SD1(M) with their current Quattro sensor, so that I don't end up needing to buy 4 (!) DPxQ cameras plus adaptors, in order to be able to get their latest and greatest image quality.

MrTaikitso: Gorgeous industrial design, in particular the bit around the top display. You just want to handle it!

Yea, man"handle" it and brake up the damn brick!
