He was recently honored as the 2013 Outstanding Nature Photographer of the Year by the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA).

He’s been awarded in competitions worldwide including the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year and Nature’s Best.

His work has been featured in several galleries including Nikon House (New York), National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and the Natural History Museum in London.

Dan’s wide range of accomplishments include being a regular contributor to natural history publications worldwide, a field contributor for Outdoor Photographer, a consultant for Hewlett Packard fine art printers, an honorary “Nikon Legend Behind the Lens” and a mentor for American Photo’s Mentor Series photography workshops.

His most personally satisfying accomplishments include two cover stories for National Geographic Magazine and his current volunteer work as Director of the Arctic Documentary Project for Polar Bears International.

He is the sole photographer of 20 books including his most recent children’s title Portia Polar Bear’s Birthday Wish.

Why do you not listen to Dan.

It is so easy, even when you are not a Dutch guy.

I do,


Is there anybody now who has a different look and thinking about the GH4 or do you have the same feeling and conclusion as i have with Dan, it is so quit now with the reactions, ia am not a fanboy but i learn everyday.


I read that post from Daniel Cox. It was much more convincing and telling as an example of real world testing than a random number on spreadsheet . The G4H performed rather good, impressive.

Now lets go on to the claim in the headline of the OP: "THE "BEST" SPORT AND ACTION camera", better than Canon 1DX or Nikon D4s (assuming I understood the post correct).


Did Daniel Cox (BTW, a wildlife and nature photographer, not a sports photographer, although he seems competent and merited) claim that the G4H performed better than a Nikon D4s? No, a reader pointed out that the results was like a Nikon D600 and he agreed. The AF-system in the D600 is on the medium level in the Nikon range. No one, anywhere, claims that Nikon D600 is as good as Nikon D4s in AF/action shooting.
