Papi61: Is anyone else tired of seeing HDR images or is it just me?

I like HDR but don't care for cartoons.

prossi: Dean is at a different level. That seems to disappoint a few, somehow...The man in the woodshop and the shot from the top of the motorcycle should tell you that Dean can take a 'regular' photo, the rest its all about what he wants to say with it.

"skin so soft". You are trying to be a wit and are halfway there. You were judging people.

Why the snarky "That seems to disappoint a few,.." ? Make your own point without judging the opinions of others. Come on.

I like the last shot taken from above the motorcycle.

Sergey Borachev: For such tiny cameras, a built-in flash is best. As it is, it can't compete with the A6000. Only for owners of M43 lenses. I will wait for the GM7.

Huh? For some it is about size. The A6000 is much larger and has an APS-C sensor. Two different class cameras. The comparison you are making is odd.

SmilerGrogan: Publishing photos of that small girl with food plastered all around her mouth is tantamount to child abuse. Girls have very fragile self esteem as it is, there is no need to feed it into the internet for further punishment. Internet content never goes away and those pictures will condemn the poor child to a lifetime of shame, obloquy, and ridicule.
One imagines that the person who took them thinks of them as innocent documents of a life stage, or humorous examples of a childish lack of self awareness. But they are neither, what they are is cruel.

Hi Nikon, I am not political at all and can't stand either side. FOX isn't the news group that would post that type of comment. The far right doesn't care about things like that. It is the far left that thinks that way. They are the ones who took "and the winner is" out of the Oscars because it means somebody had to lose. When you read "stop abortion" it is from the far right. When you read a comment stating that taking a photo of a kid with cake on it's face is child abuse THAT crap comes from the far left. The right has no problem with spanking a kid so cake wouldn't bother them. Both sides are dangerous.

Carry on!

Raist3d: So sad to see Russia doing this. I hope the rest of the world can serve as a living example of why this is ridiculous.

The real sin is that this shot won the contest.

Staxxx: I wish sometimes a happy press photo would win!

Chances are the guy laying down in the fabulous winning shot is happy. A photo with a happy ending.

Thorgrem: So politics win a photo contest. Such a shame. (not that I have anything against homosexuality)

Thorgrem I am in full agreement. Had they not listed the winner and merely posted the photos I could have told you which photo took the top prize and it isn't because of the merits of the shot. Just another contest with an agenda.

To the winner I say "fabulous! Where did you get those curtains?".

ZAnton: Such contests have only one aim: to show to "western world" how rest of the world, helpless underdeveloped unter-menschen suffer, degrade, live in slumps, dirt and deseases.

Partly true. It is also to give awards to gay themed photography. Gay wins.

mcshan: I am not a superzoom guy. I would take the G1X I and II over this any day. I know this is a different series and would guess research shows there is a target audience.

If they choose to post that it is up to them. It's called a discussion. Are you the forum posting police? The DPR does not have a rule stating only fanboys are allowed to post.

Timmbits: knowing Canon, they will protect their high-profit DSLRs and not give this a very sharp lens.
expect lots of CA at the very least.

Good point. Sadly I would have to agree with you.

ChaosCloud: no EVF = no competition with Sony RX10 and Panasonic FZ1000, which seems to be the niche that this camera is aimed at. I could forgive an add-on EVF if it's of good quality.

If the zoom were manually actuated (not "fly-by-wire" like with the above 2) this camera would really catch my interest.

Mario, You already asked me why I was here. Are you going to ask everybody who doesn't see things your way? Who appointed you Aztec God of the G3X news story? Lighten up and learn what the word "discussion" means.

Mario. As shocking as it may be to you the forum is for discussing cameras.

morepix: I don't know if it's just a testing fluke or a real camera difference, but the studio comparisons at high ISO (1600, 3200) look a good deal better for the GM5 than for my LX100. I'm seeing my $900 going down the drain. :-(

Thank you Beyond, I hear you. I am enjoying this very civil discussion.

Glen K Wells: Jusy my two pennyworth but i think it is a mistake by Panasonic to not provide a built in flash.
Ok add-ons are more powerful etc but who are these cameras aimed at?

The LX100 - no flash and now the GM5?
Basic photo punters do not want to carry a separate flash around with them to a friends house or out in their other pocket. Just want to take a quick snap oh hang on everyone I need to find and then attach the flash - hey where did everyone go?
A built in flash is one of the functions that make cameras like the E-M10 and the NEX I mean A6000 lines popular.
A built in flash is dam useful. If there is no room on top anymore why not squeeze one on the front like the days of old - software or the camera can remove red-eye.

Personally I would not choose a camera without one, I know that counts for zip but it is a feature that I look for. Currently have D610, X-E2, NEX-6 and E-M10.

Gonna start a bring back the built in flash campaign haha.

The RX100 III is small and it has both a small EVF and built in flash. Just something built in for light duty would have been nice on the GM5.
