marcel smit: Totally waste of time and money if you ask me imho.For that money en size you better spent your money on a decent compact camera.
How many compact cameras have the ability to post photos to social websites via cellular network?
Canon = Toyota. Stick with safe boring albeit reliable products.
I'm impressed wit the high ISO shots. Panasonic wasn't kidding about the improvements to their sensor. If Olympus wasn't coming out with something next month, I'd jump on the GX7. But I'll be patient and wait. If the cost really is 1500 Euro for the new OM-D, the GX7 will be my choice.
backayonder: Photographers are very quick to snap
The IQ seems to be worse than the TX10 in the comparison tool. The higher the ISO, the worse it gets.
This should sell quite well for Panasonic. The average consumer will be wowed by the 60X zoom, the $399 price and the convenience of not having to change lenses.
To those sticking with LR4, what will happen when Adobe releases updates to LR5 that enable it to handle RAW files from new cameras?
photo perzon: Prices of m4/3 are now twice of DSLRs such as Nikon D3100, 5100 and three times high performance compacts such as the LX7. Then their lenses are also $ 1,000 easy.
You're comparing the price of a flagship model to the base models of another manufacturer?
So can Adobe kill the licensing server for CS6 and force everyone to the cloud version?
Nice retro styling. I'm hoping that Olympus allows for remote control of the camera via wifi and a smartphone app. The Panasonic GF6 has an app for it and it opens up new ways to use your camera. Check out the review at http://www.ephotozine.com/article/panasonic-lumix-gf6-review-21873
D1N0: seems to be getting chunkier
Which is not a bad thing. The OM-D E-M5 is a bit too thin without the optional grip. A little bit thicker would help a lot.
nkarasev: I think canon misses the whole point of small cameras with this one: small camera needs small lens. As in "pancake". Not zoom, that outweighs and outsizes the camera itself. Ok, one might get pancake to put onto that camera, but seriously, how many buyers does canon expect for this super-budget minded camera and a pancake?Most users will get the camera and kit zoom which already misses the point of buying camera this small, and no additional lenses!
Exactly. Your average consumer will NOT buy a pancake lens. They will want a zoom lens. Either they'll get one with a kit or use one they already own. Suddenly the Canon SL1 is back to bulky.
Wow. Looks like the GH3 is using the same sensor as the OM-D E-M5.
About time they brought RAW to this camera. Now it competes directly with the Canon S95, S100, S110 etc.
Just noticed the specs say no image stabilization?
A D5100 + 28mm 1.8G costs less, for 2 extra stops of light ! This makes it a perfect street photog combo, a 18.5mm 2.8 is nice but way to wide, even on DX !
I bet we'd need to wait 2 more years for it to integrate a bright zoom lens
and the D5100 fits neatly in your pocket!
Wow. This segment is getting interesting!
memo90061: I want this camera, but I can't afford it. Well I can, but I shouldn't. :'(
It's cheaper than a Leica!
MGJA: Back when Sigma introduced the Extra Special Delux Rainforest Grip with Burly Burl for Pimp McDaddy Edition of their latest, insanely overpriced for what it was, DSLR, I thought I've seen it all.
But Hasselblad goes one better. This is both hideous, tasteless and instantly brands the putative owner as an arrivista parvenu.
No...you got it wrong. Sigma released the SD1 thinking they could convince people it was the same as a medium format camera and pay $10k then $6.8k for it. After a year they sold 2 bodies and so they had to drop the price to encourage more sales. To save face they had to come up with a story. That story was that they managed to cut the manufacturing cost of the sensor by over 66%...a world record. But of course the real story was they got greedy and it didn't work. Sigma fans are so gullible...they'll believe anything...
Innovation from Nikon...what a strange concept!
