Apart from the extra zoom reach, the FZ1000 still nails it.

Any clue on the make of the CCD?

Jim: Why bother with articles like this? It's a complete waste of time, particularly on a camera that has been out for so long. How about concentrating on more camera reviews and lens reviews? This ranks right down there with the lame humorless cartoons that used to be run (which aren't any more, thankfully).

Jim = Miserable Sod! :-D

jesus_freak: In true Sony fashion, they have excluded a touch screen yet again.

For $1,500 they could not have included a touch screen?

And wipe your greasy crud covered fingers all over the prime display screen.... No thanks... That tech can stay with mainstream smartphones thank you very much!

Apart from being a simple flat field image sampler, it will have little creative control, thus only good for a 'lomo-ish' niche.
So no zoom, no depth of field adjustment.... Meh
Tech for techs sake.

On article Corbis Images content to be distributed by Getty (29 comments in total)

So Getty get to 'control' vintage pics that when they were first taken, probably had zero copyright claim or control over them.
So what gives them the 'right' to 'own' the images now?

In reply to:

Ultan: In-body stabilization with a wide range of movement that allows movements (tilt / swing / shift) for architectural use, rapid focal plane forward/back movement for focus stacking, astro-tracking, video frame-rates for multi-parameter stacking (e.g. high and low exposure for each of three focus shots for post-processing depth of field control and HDR , 6 shots in 1/10th sec.).

Advanced photon-counting sensor with flip-chip, thinned BSI, TSV, bonded to analog amp and digital preprocessor chip with an amp, memory buffer and preprocessor for each few thousand pixels, giving extremely fast readouts (and likely the ability to do other tricks.) Free-space (~1 -2 cm) optical sensor output and inductive power to sensor for internally wire-free sensor operation.

Mirrorless or semi -mirrorless design, (mostly transparent but retractable mirror design). Totally open, all-function remote control system. GPS / intertial tracker/ heading / elevation / auto time. Scr. tilt, HP jack, wifi, mono ver.

He also forgot the pen knife function, microwave and HD Freeview box, sofa, pizza delivery icon, beer dispencer.

BS feature!
So what if a place, location or object has been photographed endlessly.
We are, and it should remain, that EVERYONE is entitled to create a representation / 'memory capture' of any said subject for our own private (or even public) viewing enjoyment later on.
Unless you want to live in a totalitarian state.
Pure Sh*te!

And the price for Quad + 4k camera + lens + remote control and video receive = Another mortgage!

This is my favourite portrait by her... Ellen Terry

Does anyone know what camera(s) / lenses specifically Julia used?

I feel it makes a bit of a mockery of their 'flagship' bridge FZ1000, when they steal the sensor from it and bung it in a phone...

Seems i'm NOT the only one who thinks so either..
