On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 Review preview (475 comments in total)

I've been working my way through the GH-series through the years, and currently have a GH3. I've tried the equivalent Olympus cameras, and they just fall down on usability. I can alter settings on the Panasonic cameras without a second's thought, yet Oly bury things under layers of not necessarily obvious menus.

So I don't think it's a simple case of saying "If you're only interested in stills then it's not quite such a compelling proposition" - because I'd rather get 100% of my photos almost there, than a handful.

BPD7: This is one reason I chose Fuji over Sony and am leaving Canon

The Sony lenses are incredibly weak compared to Fuji's offering, both current and future. Coupled with Sony effectively dropping APS-C now the the A7 system is out.

Frank_BR: This camera is a proof that M43 is the sweet spot of sensor size. What other format allows better combination of high quality of image with small size of camera?

I bet Henri Cartier-Bresson would love the GM1.

Agreed. Though there are some very impressive APS-C sensor-based mirrorless cameras out there now, their lenses are still the same size and weight as a DSLR's.

It's great that Fuji are supporting an older device like this. Too many tech firms are happy to let their older models become unsupported in order to force customers into upgrading.

qwertyasdf: I hope the in body IS works well. Because seriously, Panasonic in lens OIS sucks.

What's wrong with OIS? Never had a problem with it, and you'd do much better with OIS at the long-end of a 300mm than in-body stabilisation.

On Lightroom 4 Review article (469 comments in total)
In reply to:

sterooney: Great review, looks useful. Does anyone know if Lightroom offers relative adjustments for a series of images? Ie Can i ask it to increase all images by 1 stop regardless of starting exposure value? cheers

With LR3, you can save presets. So, for instance, you could edit one image to have a 1.0 exposure, save that as a "1 Stop" preset, then apply that to multiple-selected images in your Library. Hopefully this function still remains in LR4!
