What is crazy is that this camcorder is labeled as “Professional” because it sticks to the antiquated specs that broadcasters demand. However, cameras like the Panasonic GH4 are called “Toys” when they shoot 4k @ 30 FPS video with capabilities for high quality audio and 4:2:2 10 bit color.

Being “Professional” no longer means it is better. It just means that it meets a standard required for a specific job.

Does that Gene make your lame jokes funny or make you laugh at lame jokes?

That is not an April Fool's joke. This is an April Fool's joke. Stick to reporting the camera news. Don't try to become a rumors site.

mpgxsvcd: If this was a Canon or Sony camera I would say that it would sell pretty well. However, it is an Olympus camera and their marketing isn’t nearly what their competitors is. This is just another run of the mill small sensor compact with an unreasonably long telephoto lens.

Sure it has some great features like the 5-axis IS, 120 FPS 720p, and Pen style design. However, its lens is just too slow at the long end. In all likelihood this won’t improve a novice users images over what they have right now.

I am still waiting for a better compact camera than the LX7 and RX100 II.

I have an 800mm telescope that works just fine for my astro photographs. You don’t need almost the same focal length for terrestrial. Use lossless sensor crop modes. These cameras have plenty of resolution for that to be a suitable alternative to a ridiculous super zoom.

Shooting without RAW underwater is a very difficult thing to do.

The problem is that consumers think they need a super zoom and what they actually need is a fast mid range telephoto.

I would like to know more about the 120 FPS and 240 FPS modes.

This will go very well with my new GH4.

On Samsung announces tiny NX mini mirrorless camera article (79 comments in total)

How is this better than a Panasonic LX7? You get a brighter lens with a bigger zoom range for a lot less money. Sure it has a bigger sensor than the Panasonic. However, the Panasonic's lens is much brighter(More than 2 stops).

On Olympus OM-D E-M10 Review preview (318 comments in total)

The E-PM2 seems to stack up well against this camera when you consider the price. The E-PM2 can be had for less than $400 with two lenses. The E-M10 has wireless and some other really nice features. However, it is much more expensive as well.

The "PROs" seem to far outweigh the "CONS".

They really don't want to sell any of these cameras at all. That price is stupid. Only a Hasselbad shopper would pay that much for this camera.

On Am I missing something here? article (636 comments in total)

Nikon tried their best to kill the 1 series but it simply won't die. That is because there actually is a market for mirrorless unlike what Nikon and Canon want you to believe.

People will buy a well thought out mirrorless camera.

I don't think those specs are as good as they seem to think they are.

Not a camera I would buy but it is a whole lot better than the Lunar.
