On Enthusiast mirrorless camera roundup (2014) article (151 comments in total)

I guess they wanted to stack the deck by excluding the A6000, it would have destroyed these cameras, esp. when price is factored in.

Would have even been better with the Df sensor.

On Panasonic DMC-CM1 to go on sale in UK article (150 comments in total)
In reply to:

grasscatcher: I don't think it would work in the U.S. because the market there is predicated on upgrading your phone every two years (or less!).

OTOH, there may be a market for a phone chip in, say, a GX7 or a GH4. You would need to use a bluetooth earpiece, though - you'd look pretty silly holding a GH4 up to your ear and talking into it...

The biggest issue is that phones are basically fashion accessories / status symbols... Panasonic doesnt have any market cachet, esp. in the USA. Those who are "into photography" will just buy an iphone because its an iphone.

Better to have an RX100/G7X type compact that you keep as you upgrade phones and such.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 Review preview (744 comments in total)
In reply to:

ShatteredSky: The only thing that irritates me is, besides missing a tilt-screen, is why is the diameter of the lens front element so much smaller than the whole lens housing. Is all of this space needed for the autofocus motors (same thing on my XZ-2)?

If they could just use a bit more of this space they probably could also use the whole sensor area (?). Or would this also make the lens deeper (I guess so)?

Its also interesting how all of the press photos are taken with the lens retracted (i.e. non-operational) and without the lens cap and flash... like the photo above. They are trying too hard to make the camera look smaller than it really is.

Bram de Mooij: About size:
Take a RX100. It is good and it is small.
Take a LX100. It is good and is somewhat bigger.
Take a X100s or x100t. It is good and it is bigger.
And then there is MFT with bigger lenses.
APS-C and FF.

Take whatever suits you. So many choices.
I like the size of the LX100. RX100 and GM1, too small.

RX100 fits in a jean pocket. The rest dont.

In reply to:

Jogger: Another con would be the lack of a built in lens cap/shutter, which is pretty much standard for compact cameras. One more thing to carry/lose.

Really? I've never seen a bent lens shutter in my entire live, from anyone, ever. People are more likely to lose the lens caps or damage their front element because they were too lasy to put the cap back on.. esp. for a compact camera.

This has the right amount of gold.. although, not sure about the eyelets, that is going to get worn down quickly.

Cant wait till they scale this up to 1-inch type. Imagine an RX10 with 24-200/f2.8 for Panasonic FZ1000 (24-400) with PDAF. Goodbye m43.

On Pentax 645Z added to studio comparison database article (136 comments in total)

I wonder if we will ever see a true 645 medium format sensor. The one in this is not 645.. the sensor in the "MF" Leica S2 is marginally larger than FF.

On JVC introduces GY-LS300 4K camcorder with MFT mount article (75 comments in total)
In reply to:

dmartin92: So it's probably a waste to get 4K if you don't have a 4K television ? That's my question.

Its much easier and better to work with high bitrate 1080p to begin with. The only people who need to shoot 4k are those who plan on showing their movies at the theatre. No idea why YouTubers are uploading their stuff in 4k.

On JVC introduces GY-LS300 4K camcorder with MFT mount article (75 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jogger: Interesting. Even Panasonic went with a standard PL mount and S35 sensor for the current cine camera. There are really no other m43 cine bodies other than this JVC... other than the discontinued AGAF100.

When you use an m43 lens, it uses an m43 crop of the S35 sensor and basically behaves like an m43 camera. With an S35 lens, it uses the full S35 sensor. This confirms that the m43 mount is able to use S35/APSc lenses/sensors.. interesting.

I guess they have to use up the stock of 16mp sensors bought for the first run of the X1.

Not sure why Samsung feels that they need to be a part of this super saturated market. They must be burning a lot of RD monies, with little return on investment.
