MarcvsTvllivs: Here in Germany (outside of the photographer community) Metz is mostly known for its tv sets -- and I believe that it is that main business that dragged the company under. So there is hope for the photography part of their business to live on under new ownership or the like.

I've seen the prices of Metz TVs, and it's a no wonder they're having problems. The Koreans do it better for cheaper!

Any indication of which lenses will not work?

faithblinded: Re-posting stuff from 4/3rumors has to be a new low for DPR. I'd say 4/3rumors lacks journalistic integrity, but that would imply he/she is some kind of journalist. It's hard to believe you guys are driving traffic to the 'paid for clicks' site of a guy who stole almost his entire user base from DPR forums. Am I the only one that remembers?
With all the cameras and lenses that could be reviewed, instead we get reprocessed "rumors" straight from the troll factory. I'd honestly prefer no news over this.

More photographer interviews please. Less of this type of fluff.

My guess is that this is DPReview's way of skirting around NDAs.

"No, we're just reporting what he said. We didn't say anything ourselves! Honest!"

DPReview's few times when they've quoted rumours normally has the real news appearing a few days or weeks later.

"The Apex filter blocks IR light completely using a near-IR blocker and a Tiffen Hot Mirror, and in doing so will introduce a green/cyan cast that can be removed post-capture in software"

So my Hoya and the Lee filters already do that without a big marketing push then.

I thought this was a camera review site, not a luxury goods showcase. :P

Jogger: Great little camera. The only real con is the external flash, which i guess is a trade off for having the EVF.

Interesting that Oly has essentially ceded the entry level m43 market to Panasonic.

Uh what? Isn't the E-PL7 cheaper than the GM cameras?

Olympus's program doesn't seem to be worldwide though.

Dheorl: I'm impressed at how little screaming about equivalence there's been. Maybe that phase has at last passed.

No, they don't expect DoF with 4/3 sensors, that's why they're here. They're like those annoying evangelists that tell you why you should convert to their religion even when you're perfectly happy with your life... same reason why we're all so bloody annoyed with the equivalence folk.

Actually at super long focal lengths you also want more, not less DoF. On DX at 600mm f/8 I was struggling at times with the DoF.

In reply to:

Just a Photographer: I am not such big fan of Sony.

But this is very good news as CaNikon now really have to make progress to join the mirrorless market and start taking it seriously.

The invitation from Sony to be able to join is ridiculous. Everybody can join the NPS/CPS program as long as they meet the requirements on lenses and bodies.

This is aimed at pros - quick turnaround time can be a lifesaver, and pros shouldn't need to compete with high-spending customers who don't need their gear to do a job for fast service.

Just because you have money doesn't entitle you to this attitude that everything must be catered towards you.

Who the hell uses Office for just writing? The killer app in Office is Excel, not Word.

cousin itt: If it were £299 I'd be strongly considering it.
I'm sure I'm not alone with having a Nodal Ninja gathering dust because even with my widest lens I've got to take 57 photos for a 360'
Yeah, the image quality needs improving in all areas, but if this catches on future versions will probably have video too (when tripoded).

Why're you not using a fisheye?

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 Review preview (470 comments in total)
In reply to:

peevee1: 5-axis IBIS and OSPDAF working with all AF lenses and not just some Panasonic m43s and it would be almost perfect.

Never say never, but heat is definitely something the engineers have to account for. Have you tried a BMPCC? That thing gets really hot very quick, thanks to its active cooling solution.

In reply to:

Menneisyys: IMHO, it's a bit early to decide between the two models. After all, we don't really know whether the LX100 delivers at least as good image as the 12-32 at overlapping aperture ranges. If it doesn't, then, it'll be IMHO a far worse choice. If it does and has even acceptable-to-good IQ wide open, then, it may be a much better choice.

All this doesn't take for example 4K video into account. That IS a major advantage over the GX7.

Given that there's no new breakthrough, the answer is simple: It'll be 4 million pixels worse than the GX7.

On Photokina 2014: Quiet but significant article (165 comments in total)
In reply to:

cgarrard: LX100- definitely the most interesting camera. Pana/Leica should also make an LC1/Digilux 2 replacement. No, the LX100 is not an LC1 replacement. A real replacement could be a larger form factor (just as the LC1 is larger than the LX100) that could house a full frame sensor and compact fast Leica Manual focus/zoom internal zoom/focus fixed lens.

DO IT.

Carl

What, just because it's smaller but packs just about everything else (that's better too) it's not a true replacement? This is a camera, not a car.

In reply to:

wildkat2: Quiet but not so quiet that Pentax could be heard over the Canikon din. God forbid DPR said anything about Pentax…….

You know, I run a little blog myself, and similarly I didn't give Pentax much coverage. Because they didn't announce much. Stuff under glass also needs to be promoted and I got absolutely nothing from them about it.

Pentax fanboys need to get a little less... I don't know, angry? Defensive?

In reply to:

Menneisyys: "Bayer or X-Trans, the format is very important and at the moment I think that APS-C is the best format in terms of size, speed, quality and price. A full-frame camera would be bigger, more expensive and maybe slower too."

Great they don't abandon / neglect their current (APS-C) users, unlike Sony and their APS-C A/E-mount users. (Again, for Sony fanboys: using FE lenses on crop cameras are an unnecessary overkill in every single respect.)

You'll get the same FF-tards in both the Canon and Nikon userbase, so that's hardly new!

On ACDSee Pro 8 and ACDSee 18 announced article (51 comments in total)
In reply to:

vscd: Funny. "ACD Systems Announces Products that Eliminate the Need to Buy Expensive Photo Suites"... yes, with $199 you are way overpriced to Lightroom, which can do anything but better.

I really like ACDSEE as a fast and comprehensive Viewer, but the price is way to high. I bought ACDSEE Pro 6 a few years back and there is nothing important better now.

Just wait a bit, there'll be sales and bundles soon enough.

ACDSee is still one of the best viewers around. Lightroom is only for edits.
