  • That's true, the left hinge is better for portrait shooting. Unfortunately after using the powered zoom for a year and a half, I still find it a nuisance. Especially since on the FZ1000 the lens ...
  • Yeah, I was a bit worried about the clickable dial before I handleed the FZ1000, but I've never accidentally clicked it.
  • I would love 600mm too. That probably means adding another inch in length to the Pinocchio extension.
  • Thanks for the compliment Bottom hinged LCD is faster in my experience. 90% of the time if using the LCD it's for a low angle shot. One step to deploy the LCD with bottom hinge, whereas with side ...
  • In a way, I like having the physically marked dedicated dials like Fuji has for the functions you have mentioned, since you can set the camera ready without even turning it on. On the other hand, ...
  • Created discussion thread Panasonic FZ1030 Concept
    This summer will be 2 years since the release of the FZ1000. I think we can reasonably expect a successor in that timeframe. Below is my concept for such a camera. Revisions: - manual/mechanical ...
  • Oops, somehow posted to the thread below, meant to post in reply to Angrymagpie:

  • If cameras are to compete with phones they need to offer things that phones don't. One of those things is direct mechanical controls. Agree 100% that it should have a front dial.

  • I agree, these electronic zooms are not nearly as good as a mechanical zoom. I think they do it to decrease the length of the lens barrel when the camera is stowed. Each camera extends the lens a...

  • Definitely deserves a full review. There are only 2 other comparable cameras in existence.

  • You were shooting stars last night, 20s exposure. Today a rare bird has perched itself in the sunlight outside your home. You grab your camera and while scrolling your exposure dial all the way ...
  • With the FZ1000 the AF hunt is quite annoying while shooting video. In the video options set the "Continuous AF" option to off, and use the AFS/AFF focus mode. The focus will only adjust when you ...
  • Think of it this way: The FZ50's lens does extend, it is just concealed within a fixed lens barrel. If the FZ1000 did that, the barrel would be about 5" long at all times. By the way, the FZ1000 is ...
  • And yet, the Canon XC10 still/video hybrid has a manual zoom lens. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GS_679c3xOo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BLEzbHPL7Y A motorized zoom lens has nothing to do ...
  • Commented on photo bb_ISO125_f3.2_IMG_0166 in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    Nice scene, but wow - what is that. Look at the distant shore's rocks/foliage. There are artificial contours being added to the detail - false highlights and shadows. It is even blobbing up real...

  • Agree with Ryan. If the camera can't create good JPG it's not of much use. Not everyone has the time or storage space to deal with RAW photos.

    I too have the FZ1000 and am disappointed with some...
