  • Commented on Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 Review preview

    It is astonishing to me that Panasonic has great 4K video in a sub $800 camera while Canon and Nikon still have not produced a true DSLR with 4K video. It almost seems like Canon and Nikon have...

  • Commented on Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 Review preview

    “Auto ISO is not available at all when shooting video.”

    Can you clarify that statement a little bit? Surely you don’t mean that this camera cannot control ISO during video recording? How does ISO...

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    I am certain that Dpreview will place it in a class with other cameras. I seriously doubt they will put it in a class all by itself. That is why I said "almost".

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    I think Dpreview raised their standards for the “Gold” award because they knew cameras like this one were just around the corner. It is almost in a class all by itself.

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    Sony is firing on all cylinders now!

  • Those are nice lenses that I could never afford.

  • Useless for astronomy with its 4 second shutter speed limitation. That is the area where it had the most potential.

  • Here is the moon at 3200mm equivalent with a GH2 and a $30 tripod. Try catching a plane in front of the moon at that focal length. It isn’t very easy especially without a tracking...

  • Nothing in these pictures make me want to run out and buy this camera. The lens wasn't great for these images and the noise was distracting. It wasn't the photographer' fault. It was the...

  • Commented on SAM_020_ISO640 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    Really noisy for ISO 640.

  • It doesn't go beyond ISO 12,800 and even that ISO is already in its expanded range.

  • I was disappointed that they haven't figured out how to fix the RAW compression issue. That will be a tough thing for them to overcome when the other manufactures have that advantage over...

  • Commented on P1750346 photo in mpgxsvcd's photo gallery

    No that is not the best the GH4 can do. The optics are the limiting factor there. That was with a fast focal ratio Newtonian telescope. You need a fully corrected SCT scope to do the moon and the...

  • They won’t be as pleased about the sales of this camera as Sony was about their RX100 cameras or even Panasonic was about their LX100. I can tell you that much.

  • You can always think of this camera as a $1250 camera with a removable EVF. Then it is simply overpriced but it actually has a feature advantage in that you can remove the EVF when you don’t...

  • It isn’t a bad camera. However, it is just simply a little late. There were too many great options in this category last year. Everyone bought a camera back then.

    I am sure they will sell plenty...

  • Commented on 2015 Superzoom Camera Roundup article

    If you can’t see it with your naked eye then you certainly won’t be able to follow it with one of these cameras. Much less take a picture of it with the subpar image stabilization these cameras...

    The Panasonic FZ1000($720) is $123 more than the Nikon P900($597) on Amazon right now. You would have to be stupid to buy the Nikon over the FZ1000.
