This is beautiful and absolutely thrilling!
In the same time, it makes me very sad : while we are able to do such technological prowess, we are not able to preserve our own planet.
Take care Mars, humans are coming...

Back in your shells guys...back in your shells...(actually,,that's unfair to molluscs to liken them to many in the comments section) ;-)

lol, I remember this. It was the silliest complaint I've ever read. Now it's even sillier ;-)

I wonder if pros are as obsessed by chart numbers as us amateurs?

MeganV: The paradigm shift underway, here, saddens.

Google says, "use Snapseed for mobile instead of these old desktop applications." OK, but Snapseed for mobile doesn't do nearly as much, nearly as well.

Adobe says, "use Photoshop Fix and Lightroom mobile or Lightroom for the Web and edit wherever you are!" OK, but Photoshop Fix and Lightroom Mobile can't even touch big RAW files without a convoluted ingest-on-computer-then-sync workflow. They can't do as much, nearly as well.

Apple says, "the iPad Pro is our bold, uncompromising vision for the future of personal computing. Windows users, come on over!" Ok, but how does one even get his or her Windows files ON to an iPad? Dropbox? And where are all the professional-grade apps? Like, how would I edit a really big spreadsheet with v-lookups and data qualifiers and deep sorts? The iPad Pro can't do as much, nearly as well.

Welp, I guess it's a future of JPEGs and instagram filters. We'll have to figure out how to make it work.

Hey Megan,you were a fierce defender of smartphone pictures 3 weeks ago. What happened?

Anyway, I agree with you on this. But we're free not to follow ;-)

I like the two multifunction dials. Clever.

If 4K gimmik is the only complaint, don't worry Canon users, you have a winner!

@eno2
I never ask you to think like me, you're free dude.
I shoot Nikon, Fuji and Oly, so don't need a new Canon ;-) I just think it's a good camera for Canon users.
I do care a lot about image quality, but not the same way as you do.
But you're a videographer and I'm a photographer, so I guess we have different needs.

Dunno. Never been interested.
Hasn't Samsung stop their NX business?

@ Random Photographer
Memories has nothing to do with video resolution. When I watch the VCR film of my childhood, I never thougt "If only they were shot in 4K" ;-)

4K is the Panasonic Mantra, with fans defending fiercely that 4K is a must and every camera that do not have it is pure garbage.
Sorry, I don't buy it. For soccer dads or amateurs, even 720p is more than they need to record memories.

Why? Because it has no 4K?

On article History Repeating: Olympus PEN-F Review (1102 comments in total)

Very nice photo gallery! Congrats to DPR staff, who obviously had a lot of fun with this camera!
This PEN seems to be hit for street shooters : small, unobstrusive, lots of well palced external controls, fast AF. Pity about the non customisable front dial though. But I suspect it could be with a future FW update.

On article Kodak revives Super 8 with part-digital cine camera (367 comments in total)

While Tarantino always shoots film, Soccer Dad shoots 4K, that's the Power of Marketing.
But hey, filming your children in Super8 next year? They'll love it! Those Super8 movies will saturate YouTube and Facebook servers, do you bet?
This is the new Instagramm in movie version ;-)

This is a marketing statement IMHO. Panasonic was supposed to work on an "organic sensor" with Fuji. Now we learn that R&D about sensor has been stopped a few years ago. Sooo... Organic sensor R&D was dead a few years ago (what a pity), and now welcome to 8K sensor...meh...not too much exciting...

Marty4650: "paid firmware upgrade"

I hope this isn't the wave of the future.

I'm afraid it is. With the current decrease of consumers upgrading, companies have to find new ways to make profits. Paid FW upgrades is one of those.
OTOH, I prefer to pay 100$ for an upgrade that adds brand new features to my current camera, rather to be forced to sell it and buy a new 1000$ camera.

samfan: It would be funny if it wasn't coming from a legendary SLR manufacturer that still offers 4/3 DSLR lenses.

Yes I know Olympus has usually made smaller (D)SLRs than the others but still. First they leave their 4/3 customers hanging, now it looks like they're making fun of them...

"now it looks like they're making fun of them..."

Self-mockery is the beginning of wisdom ;-)
