skysi: Is this made in place of Lumix GX8, or is GX8 is still in making?

I've heard rumors now about a September release or at least an announcement.

skysi: Looks like something out of the Stone Age. And no 4K movie mode???

Too late to set a drop video trend. People want a combination camera

I got some things built in China with very solid build quality.

onezerosix: i'm debating on DMC-FZ1000 or Sony A6000. I'll be taking pictures at family events & scenery shots. which be better choice? i'm not really looking for 4k video.

Then why pay for 4K? Get the Sony

How about an arm with a hand grabbing your boobs? I can't even think about all the fantasy offerings :)

snegron2: I always find it funny how the only video clips posted anywhere by cell phone paparazzi are of the last few moments from a police vs "innocent victim" encounter. It would be awesome if media agencies would release the entire encounter, not just the inflammatory segments.

Right on!

Does this reflect growing distrust of the populace to the police dep.?

This camera badly needs image stabilisation and at least 5X zoom. I wouldn't consider it an action camera until optical stabilisation is implemented. Image stabilisation is what's holding me from buying this cam.

MustyMarie: Why is a box a good design for a cam ? I can only imagine how poor the ergonomics can be on a box for shooting pics ?! Now for using on a Octocopter/drone, why not aerodynamic cube ?

So GoPro invented the box, always wondered who did that !?? ;)

So GoPro crawled into a box, most of us desire to escape one !!

Maybe for a better lens housing with image stabilisation and zoom.

Seansprague: However, despite my atrocious experience with the LX100 'self destructing' in my jacket pocket while being turned on by mistake, I still think it is a fabulous piece of kit and I am considering buying another one, while being very careful that it does not open inadvertently. Still, I am beginning to read other owners' reviews which mention the noise it makes while zooming in (not out). Nobody else has (dared) mention switching it on in their pocket by mistake and the havoc it creates. Could I be the only one to experience this so far? Look out for other reviewers with the same comments in the near future.

On the positive side, and this is something rarely mentioned in reviews about this camera, despite having no mike socket it does have AUDIO INPUT LEVEL CONTROL (4 settings) which makes it great for videoing very loud music at festivals or night clubs, for instance, without audio distortion. As for not being as small as some cameras, that's actually a plus: its big enough to grip!

Don't keep it in your pocket. And if you do, take the battery out.

In reply to:

alpshiker: (…) Will the 50 MP be useless? They will certainly be precious when it comes to re-framing and cropping into images. Those cameras will be awesome tools for wedding photography for instance, and even some portraiture style, every aspects where a soft and very subtle haloing effect is a welcome feature. But for landscape or architectural photography, both miss the point. How many years will we have to still wait for a mature, well thought, non AA filtered 50 MP Canon camera? Nikon learned the lesson well and developed the D810 with no AA filter as a successor for the D800/E.

I don't want to have to use a tripod for every wedding shot I take.
