It was an absurd idea from the getgo and served only to damage the reputation of Hasselblad.

On Drift Stealth 2 action camera is maker's smallest yet article (39 comments in total)

Smalll can be good, but at what price. The Hero 4 Black overheats and so can no longer be used for long shoots. Overheating also makes it totally unreliable for unattended recording.

Stacey_K: " and successive cameras".... well that is unless Olympus decides to change the lens mount again. I'm done trusting this company to support the customers who invest in their system.

Through corporate mis-management and a partnership with a crappy sensor manufacturer (panasonic), Olympus killed the 4/3 mount right as they had a sensor (the one used in the OMD) in their hands that would have made their lovely ZD 4/3 optics shine. Instead they pull this bait and switch to m4/3. I give then 3-4 years before they bail on this format and switch to yet another mount.

Olympus's problem has never been their optics, and I'm sure these will be fantastic lenses. But I'm willing to bet they will decide in the future the 4/3 sensor is too small and ditch this mount, leaving anyone who buys these lenses left in an orphaned system. I would never trust this company again after what they did with 4/3.

The Four Thirds lens mount should never have been introduced. It should have been MFT from the get go.

MediaDigitalVideo: I want this under my X-mas tree.
Canon is playing Santa Claus again.

Buy a GH4, it's a far better camera, even for 1080p.

In reply to:

marcio_napoli: Typical DP review crowd. They all look for specs, actually knowing very little how to use it in the real world.

It's just about numbers, on gear heads minds: DR numbers, MP numbers, ISO numbers, and now, 2k vs 4k.

In just a few years, 4k vs 8k... numbers, bla bla bla, numbers.

If my statement above doesn't cut it, the mighty ARRI Alexa is a 2k camera only.

Do you know what the "obsolete" 2k Arri Alexa means to the movie industry? It's basically the most acclaimed digital movie camera ever.

And guess what, few, very few Hollywood level movies are actually produced in 4k.

Very, very few.

If Hollywood is not ready yet for 4k, do we really think a bunch of gear heads on DP review are really in THAT need for 4k ?

Oh dear...

The Alexa 65 uses a 20MP sensor for 6.5K images.

4K is the future for consumer video, higher for Hollywood.

So, no 4K, despite it having an 8.3MP sensor? Or did I miss something (again)?

At one third the price, the GH4 would be a much better buy for most people, and it does 4K.

So, each camera is about 3MP?

In reply to:

TrojMacReady: Maybe worth mentioning here that Lollipop finally supports RAW shooting. Not sure if the Nexus 9 (and 6) camera apps natively support it, but 3rd party apps should soon allow it.

Seriously, you would use your TABLET as a serious camera?

I have the 2013 version of the Nexus 7. It's a great tablet, with one major flaw... no microSD card slot. This new Nexus still does not have a microSD slot.

No microSD card slot is a DEAL BREAKER. **** the cloud.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 Review preview (480 comments in total)
In reply to:

Paul Kersey Photography: Videographers can rejoice, dedicated still shooters are better served elsewhere. Cool for Panasonic to pick a lane that they can dominate in m43land. The a6000, not renowned for high ISO performance, looks better than GH4 at 1600. That's the rub on m43, close, but always will trail larger sensors.

It is actually an excellent stills camera too. But video is obviously it's forte.

Not everyone shoots only at high ISO, or even cares about high ISO performance.

Ian SS: I just bought the GH4 before this review mostly for 4K video, I am glad I've made a good choice!

Was there ever any doubt? It's a Panasonic GH camera.

Interesting, could potentially be very useful with the rugged cameras to prevent or minimize water droplets from sticking to the lens.

I think I may get one for my AW1.

Does Ricoh not realize 4K is the next BIG thing?

Just wait, there is about to be a 4K tsunami.

Plus, if you want a real action cam... this ain't it.

OneLeggedCat: I can't believe that 30fps can be called "Full HD".

FullHD refers to the image size (1920x1080), not the frame rate.

garyknrd: Actually, I bet a lot of divers will buy it. I know when I was diving I would of loved to have this on my belt... And cheap. Many outdoor sports will have this one with them....

Why would a diver buy it? It is only good to 10m.
The GoPro comes with a waterproof case that can go much deeper.
