Mike FL: The real problem for Panasonic is lacking of innovation.
For the very first time, SONY became #1 b/c of innovation while Olympus was #1 for past three years in its homeland at least.
Panasonic is going down in fast speed as seem from the chart as above.
Things could be changed if Pana can make its IBIS half good as Olympus.
Where's your data on Panasonic?
Hahahah. Out of touch, hah?
cxsparc: Am I the only one who thinks that this will not be a big success?
This camera dwarfs in size and weight the Sony A6000 which also already bristles with functionality, yet the GX8 retains a lower res M43 sensor and has no longer a popup flash. And the price is 2.5 times as high, pushing well into FF land.
Not to speak about the (subjective) design, which is not exactly a hallmark for design museums IMHO.
The price may initially play role in its lower sales, but eventually people will be breaking the bank and buying it I think.
I'm salivating here, but the price is too steep.
Greg V: For several years I used a Wordpress based site but recently switched to SquareSpace and am digging the new look of my site and ease of use: www.gregvorobiov.com
But it's cool to see other alternative choices ala Photographers.Pro as the competition makes for continued improvements from all players.
Great portraits, Greg! Отличная работа!
The very mentioning of this pathetic image site makes me nauseous.
This was disgusting. Who's this crap shot for? Inner city ganfbangers?
Why on earth an iphone user, etc would want to bother to create bullet time sequences. Just stupid!
LOL! Just buy from reputable vendors.
jeffharris: Just do the sensible thing and avoid Canon. :-)
Trolling again, Jeff?
Yes, but that lamp post at 36.1215° N, 115.1739° W looks a bit blurred. This is unacceptable!
If you don't like Swift attitude, ignore her and don't shoot. Aren't there other artist to take pics of and make money from that?
Anaxagoras: Interesting stuff. But I would disagree with "Was this image taken with a DSLR or a mirrorless camera? If you can't tell from looking at the final image, does it matter?". For us hobbyists, yes it does. ENJOYING taking the image matters a lot.
Having owned both Nikon D7000 (optical viewfinder) and Sony NEX7 (small and light), my preferred solution to get the best of both worlds is a small dSLR - Nikon D5300.
When I need something truly pocketable my smartphone has to suffice.
4K is still in its infancy and you are talking about 8K. You sound like an enthusiastic amateur.
Blurry and boring. But I'm sure it means something for the industry.
I'm sure an awesome camera, but the ugliness of it!
Mariano Pacifico: I'm not buying Sony RX100 IV yet. It is best to wait out what Canon and Lumix have up their sleeves. Definitely, Canon buy sensors from Sony. Of course, Sony would sell them last-generation sensors. Lumix does not buy sensors from Sony.
Let's see what these two can offer comes September in Photokina. It's going to be fun!
What are you talking about. Canon uses its own sensors.
You can easily (well maybe not so easily) create your own preset for dehazing.
Mark Alan Thomas: At last, subscribers and nervous persons can remove every trace of reality from their photos. If that’s not worth the price of extortion, I don’t know what is.
Yes, I'm a filter junkie. I"ve already removed all reality traces from my pictures. All what's left is to dehaze them to complete the picture.
jlhopes: For standalone LR users (like me), and (supposedly) why Adobe can't give us new features:http://prolost.com/blog/dehaze
The site says the dehazing id free, but then proceeds to collect you CC number. Fail!
