Mike FL: Per DPR "The G5 X uses the same 24-120mm equivalent F1.8-2.8 lens as the G7 X,".

Wrong copy and paste.

Is that a correction or a response to another post? <confused>

In reply to:

Battersea: I think this is a typo: "instead of a bit over 4 fps on the G7 X and G9 X." When talking about the fps of the G9-X.

Thanks for that. All of the model names start to get confusing after about 60 seconds.

J A C S: "If you want to use EF and EF-S lenses, you need only pick up the $200 EF-EOS M adapter."

$49.99 at B&H.

Wow, Canon wants $200 for it. Thanks for the find.

RolliPoli: As the precursor to 'translucent mirror' cameras, I hope proper mention is made of the Olympus E10 - E20 camera series. As well as using a fixed translucent prism between both the eye piece and image sensor to eliminate the moving mirror years before Sony built its first DSLR of any kind, the E10 was the first 'live view' DSLR 5 or 6 years before the E330 I still enjoy using my E20 even though
it's now a digital museum piece.
.....metal body with an f2 - f2.4 lens

We'll have my personal E-10 on display at the DPReview booth!

JimW-203: Many of the photos designated as having RAW files attached only have XMP files, not RW2. Of those with RW2 are very clean, notably lacking the atmospheric haze I have come to expect from samples shot of landscapes in areas like Seattle. I noticed the WB on the RAW of the wave crashing over rocks showed 4800K - did that reflect an auto WB setting? With care one could coax quite acceptable shadow detail out of the rocks without destroying midrange detail. Based on these photos, one might find this camera to be a capable and genial travel companion to have along on trips.

Great find on the XMP bug. It should be fixed.

Cihangir Gzey: Very nice collection of photos Jeff Keller. Have you used any filter(s) and how was the reliability of battery meter? As this camera is already big, any extra items (like extra batteries and charger) will be painfull. I am looking into having this camera vs. Canon G3X or G1 X (both are guaranteed to offer ultra unreliable battery meters as other P&S Canon's and that's why I want to have this Panasonic).

No filters, though I wish I had a polarizer when I was there. Battery meter was fine, no major battery life issues.

cantanima bis: The Valley Isle of Maui makes for "real world" samples? I hope you do add some Seattle fall photos.

The leaves are just starting to change so hopefully soon!

In reply to:

sh10453: The image above doesn't match the title. It doesn't belong to the TG-4.
Neither do the remaining water / underwater images.
Something went wrong and hopefully this update will get an update.

Sorry about that, associated the photos with the wrong camera (can you tell that we have a panasonic gallery coming soon?). It's fixed.

Tapper123: Great photo!

What camera, what lens? This is a gear site, so I'd be curious to know.

Look down -he used a nikon 70-200 VR.

neil holmes: Wonder what that organic element is made from?

Blue whale oil? Anyone know?

More importantly how stable is it? Does it handle temperature change the same as the elements around it?

And the really big question......how well will it work on the Sony A7Rii?

I believe it's made of unicorns.

In reply to:

Chippy99: @Jeff, Jordan,

I am reliably informed that your comparison table "Compared to E-M10 and E-M5 II" contains an error in that the E-M5 II has an LCD, not an OLED viewfinder.

Cheers

The table says that the E-M5 II has an OLED display. It's the original E-M10 that has the LCD.

In reply to:

IchiroCameraGuy: Studio shots seem so soft, even compared to EM10 predecessor and JPEG or RAW. Good sharpening is usually a Olympus trait. The money is especially odd looking.

This is something we're taking a look at, along with the apparent improvement in noise performance vs other m4/3 cameras.

Thomas Ludwig: Hey there, we (COSYSPEED) will roll out a crowd-funding in the first week of September with an innovative carry system for mirrorless cameras. 1st to 30th of September will be the period. We do have prototypes and would love to send one to you for PIX... Tom

Sent you a PM.

In reply to:

Lan: Wow, you people are curmudgeonly bunch. I think the performance is pretty amazing for a rugged underwater compact camera, particularly by the time you add in things like the wireless flash control and RAW support. No, it doesn't give D810 image quality, but you can't expect it to - it costs a small fraction of that.

It's probably the best underwater compact yet. Give Olympus some credit.

@DPR: Were the underwater shots taken using the Underwater WB setting?

@Lan, both Program and underwater were used. If there's one image in particular you want to know about let me know.

wvdvegte: Intro: "A sensor-shift image stabilization system helps reduce the effects of camera shake, and seemed to be effective in the time we spent with the camera."

Conclusions / Cons: "only digital image stabilization"

???

The above replies are correct. I'l adjust the text.
