  • I think as a gear review site, you should mention all the gear used in the "production." E.g. along with the people who made the video, also mention what they have used.

    For example, I wish to...

  • But for once it is not a CaNikon's infomercial. It's actually something new and informative. As it should be.

  • Pana FZ1000: "Very quick focusing".

    Can we please stop calling it "quick" or "fast"?

    It is "normal" speed of AF. As it is supposed to be.

    No, waiting for a camera to confirm the focus, or the...

  • Pana m43 uses the same flash system as the Oly 43/m43. And of course GX7 has a proper hot shoe. (Or you are mixing up the Canon G7 X and Panasonic GX7?) And as far as I know, the built-in flash of...

  • @ecube, I'm aware of the flash unique capabilities and occasionally use the built-in flash of my Pana GX7 for fill-in, and also for the portraiture when the background is too bright. But only...

  • 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...

  • 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...
