  • when it comes to Panasonic with their lack of marketing. And yes, marketing from Panasonic in North America stinks to no end...but how that relates to a small Oly product lunch in Hong Kong, where ...
  • The likes of E-M10 is smaller than the E-M1...but only slightly and the G7...albeit better video and lighter, wouldn't that make it larger? If you want small that you can conceivably be able to put ...
  • The original Pen-F is an incredibly beautiful camera (which I'm still trying to get my hands on) but I don't think it really resemble the new Pen-F... The new one, although also beautiful has the ...
  • Panasonic does a horrible job of relating their cameras photographically abilities to people. Generally just as competent photographically as any other brand, specially Olympus but people only see ...
  • Replied in Totally agree...
    But considering the number of different types of camera's Panasonic has, it can handle at least a line or two that leans a little more towards aesthetics compared to functions and leave the likes ...
  • Replied in Oddly...
    from the big camera stores around me (Toronto, Canada), there are more stores selling Panasonic, albeit, mostly because there are one or two that have problems with Oly when it comes to support so ...
  • There are more Oly users here and as such, there are more Oly posters here. Only natural. And, yeah, more Oly u43 globally so reflects the market rather well. And yes, if Panny actually did an ...
  • It's just a convenient feature, albeit one that is rather distracting. Still, I would rather be connected most days than not.
  • Replied in Not really.
    He's talking about the timeline between the G1 and OMD. I.e. the first SLR styles bodies from each manufacturers. Hubert My non-digital gear: Agfa Isolette, Ricoh Ricohflex VII, Voigtlander Bessa ...
  • That doesn't show in any capacity that "Most" Panasonic users are insecure. So again, any proof that most Panasonic users are insecure?
  • Before m43 I was on the Panasonic forums when I got my TZ3. At the time and before with the TZ1 and LX1, the Panasonic forum was incredibly busy (one of the busiest?), but it was a very friendly ...
  • There are a few staunch Oly supporters who will live and die Oly and turn their nose on Panasonic as toaster makers but they would be in the minority. Probably around the 5-15% range, most likely ...
  • Replied in Not...
    He was comparing the size to the Oly E-M1... So unless you consider the E-M1 huge, the GX8 shouldn't be considered big either as they are, in practical terms, the same size.
  • All Panasonic has to do is come up with a Leica look-a-like (Leica M9  design, not SL design) but with Panasonic pricing and they will do well...well, it's not as if Oly is making modern "Looking" ...
  • What with their big chunky and clunky buttons, knobs and aesthetics, must have been a dream design ethos! Personally, I think I'll stay with Panasonic, Sony, Canon, Nikon, Samsung, Ricoh, Pentax, ...
  • iPhone is very much American. It's very much, un-Japanese'ish (is that even a word?).
  • Certainly would make the decision easier. Oh well. Yeah, I think I'll have to consider the 12-40mm when the time comes (err...like when my better half lets me ;)). Already decided to lean towards ...
  • Panasonic had been working on the organic shutter for years now. And working on the global shutter for even longer (since GH1? GH2?). I suppose this is the first info about both tech at the same ...
