  • As cameras' high ISO performance improves, a need for a proper flash lessens.

    Otherwise, as an amateur, I was always surprised by the lack of advancements in the lighting equipment. Flash designs,...

  • "Now this looks like a real camera, not like those fragile mirrorless ones"

    :) LOL

    Yes, it's funny how the look sells. Bigger is better!

  • Read on interwebs, that people have measured Olympus 5-axis IBIS to move sensor in XY plane at most about 3mm.

    But this is a smaller sensor. With larger sensors, it is unlikely that the latitude...

  • In-lens IS costs next to nothing. There is nothing wrong with having both.

    In m43, with Pana stabilized lens and stabilized Oly body, you can choose where IBIS or In-lens IS should be used. Might...

  • So Olympus has designed the IBIS for the Sony.

    All what's left, is for Sony to persuade Olympus also to design Zuiko lenses for FE/E-mount,.

  • BTW, owners on the Pana User Talk suggested to dial down the NR to -3 and set i.Resolution to standard for better sharpness.

    I'm pretty sure Pana softens the JPEGs by default to compensate for the...

  • > It's clear you've messed up

    I always found it weird when people buy a new camera to replace old, configure the new totally different camera like their old, and then complain that (surprise)...

  • Relax. It's Google. They never finish anything.

  • Marty and all. I'm well aware of all the innovation Panasonic introduced. Fastest CDAF FTW.

    The problem is that Panasonic way to often likes to cripple their products in unexpected ways. Just...

    The problem is that Panasonic very often likes to cripple their products in unexpected ways. Just recall...

  • Heck, LX100 is even larger than the GM5.

    As pocketability goes, it is a loss. But as a usability goes, it is a bonus.

    With a solid...

  • From LC1 to GX7, GM1, and now LX100. Pana definitely knows how to wow photographers. I wish they were doing it without decade long delays and without waiting for a crisis in the industry.

  • To solve the JPEG softness, as Pana users have found out, it is sufficient to set NR to -3 and i.Resolution to "Standard". See the two images in the thread:

    original:...

  • "the fz1000 only has a minimum aperture of 8, where the nikkor 18-300 superzoom lens has minimum aperture of 32."

    And purely technical limitation of how small the aperture can be made. Beyond the...

  • > but they are NOT in continuous production.

    True. But I also think you are off by quite a lot regarding the size of the batches.

    Most consumer electronics vendors use the "slow phase-in" method....

  • "Many people looking for a small system are now looking towards Fuji due to their APS sensor, retro look and more or less same weight and AF performance."

    This gearhead perspective is not even...

  • Scrapping a camera model before xmas sales season?

    A very sound business strategy. /s

  • Commented on Canon PowerShot G7 X Review preview

    "The number of cons doesn't matter - it's how significant they are."

    Never stopped you from downgrading the non-CaNikon cameras before. Just saying.

    "Image quality-wise, this will trounce almost...

  • Commented on Canon PowerShot G7 X Review preview

    Some consider 0.5-1s AF acquisition to be fast. It's all about expectations. If one comes from Canon G series, then G7X might be fast in comparison. Because Canon Gs are very slow.

    It was the same...
