MikeFairbanks: It's about time. Square photos were quite limiting, and it was frustrating to have to figure out what to crop, or put the photo into a square and have a lot of extra space.

On another note: to those of you who think Instagram is just for hipsters, wannabe hipsters, or whatever term you deem upon them from your lofty position: Get over yourselves. Instagram is, like many websites or apps, a fine place to showcase one's talents.

There's nothing wrong with Instagram, other than arrogance from those who look down their noses at it.

Well, now that they allowed real photo formats, we'll love them

riknash: By losing its emphasis on the square format, Instagram may yet become another boring flickr. I'm not surprised that the emphasis is to increase acceptance by all those who felt it was just too restrictive a format. Something will be lost and something will be gained by this change.

Oh pleeeeeze! Why do you need a restrictive format? Can't you restrict yourself and put your square pics on any cloud service?

skysi: Useless junk!

Ok, maybe useless junk was too harsh. I'd upgrade this cam to usable junk then. If I wanted a mirrorless cam I'd rather buy offerings from Pany, Sony or Oly. And those would be quite superior to Canon. So far I'm pleased with my Canon full frame cameras.

Now it's here. Too little , too late? Only 1080p/30 and 4.5 images per sec. Sounds laughable

Yup, a pocket full of tricks. Nothing much beyond tricks. I wouldn't even pay $500 for this cam.

What the heck was that?

Was about to buy this bad but the absence of rain cover broke it for me. They need to add a rain cover or not many photographers would think of buying this bag.

In reply to:

DVT80111: LowPro Flipside 20L is basically the same thing but it has better features such waist strap, ventilated backside, and an optional water hydration bag. These are the must-have feature through.

Nope. Flipside does not have the same utility. It can't be loaded from top and does not have a plastic stand.

Actually I like recording my rides with my GoPro 4 Black in time lapse (0.5 sec) and them watch it from time to time while I'm editing my wedding pictures. Keeps me from falling asleep :)

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?

In reply to:

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.
