KZMike: Deciding between the Pany and the Sony will be a tough call. . . had pretty much decided on the Pany, but with this announcement, I need to review these two options again. . . was planning to buy the FZ-1000 in July/Aug. . . NOW??

I see value in BOTH. . .???

FZ-1000 HAS +fully articulating LCD +5 axis stabilzation +2x zoom +TimeLapse . . . does NOT have -sealed metal body - slow motion @ 960fps -stacked sensor. . .??? Then the pricing differential [Pany as low as $670 vs $1300}. . . still a tough choice

Am in the process of shopping for the Lumix FZ1000. . . the Olympus, by not having a larger sensor is keeping me on track to buy the FZ1000 next month, though I like the build of this and lens speed it offers,

VERY IMPRESSED. . . finally a vari-angle screen+ weather seals+time lapse. . .specs are looking like this 'rig' ought to be a good sales producer. At first glance I am not sure what " can produce 4k video from stills " is about. . .?

"Supportive shooting functions:" . . . is this similar to Oly's 5 axis stab. sys. or ?

Gesture: Call me old-fashioned, but for $1,000, I'd like micro-focus adjustment and 2 card slots.

What entry level Interchange Lens Digital 'enthusiast' shoots 440► 1200 shots on any given "opportunity"?

duartix: What?
Is this really the High-end pocketable compacts meeting?
Why can't I see the Panasonic LX100, then?

I suppose the large pockets in 'cargo pants' works as part of that pocket definition. . .

KZMike: Pany has put all the goodies in one package [incl Time Lapse + a sensor larger than 2/3] I've been wanting in one package. . . though I do like the top LCD & body that the RX10 has, the FZ1000 wins out. This will be my every day snapshot + video clip camera. . . still will be using my Nikon & Canon APS SLRs for the 'special'/more serious use photos.

Now I need to convince Santa. . .

Need some help understanding the Page 9 Jpeg comparisons. . . the Sony RX10 Jpegs are much larger than the FZ1000, which seems to make the comparison confusing. . . at least to me. . .

In reply to:

pdelux: Another nail in the coffin of the M4/3 format. Not long now before this Format dies as the experts have predicted. How can anyone survive with so many brands using it, too many lenses to choose from, too much competition.

Whats next Kodak back from the dead with M4/3 mount?

Yeah. . . pretty much like the 35mm format for film cameras. . . everybody was making them and now. . .?????

Finally, someone figured out that even with the hefty margins there was not money to be made and the few cameras that were sold did not create a enough of a favorable 'brand image' in the market place, to off set the losses

KZMike: Canon hit a single with this offering. . . they could have hit a GRAND Slam [Go Mariners], if they had put together a package like the Lumix FZ1000 or Sony's RX10 with their !.5" sensor.

Sony and Panasonic put 1" sensors in their offering but with Canon's larger sensor [larger than a 4/3" sensor] one would think it would/could be the clear the WINNER!

As usual, Canon seems to be taking the 'easy route' to being routine. . .

blah, blah,blah. . . YOUR assumption.. . the canon reference was just that a for instance. . . I DO buy what 'a' camera does and Not by name plate. I have, Canon, Nikon, Fuji, Pany. . . . with more than one of two. . .just depends on what I'm doing. . .

On Pentax launches K-S1 Sweets Collection article (231 comments in total)

Is this an admission that the non-sweet 'variety' is a sales bust and now this to boost sales. . .likely so, if the photo 'enthusiast' is not buying, then the 'fashionistas' might sweeten up sales stats. . .

On High Flyer? DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ Drone Review article (180 comments in total)
In reply to:

maxnimo: Speaking of legalities, I realize it's illegal for us photographers to to shoot photos with such drones, but would it be legal for us to shoot people with bullets, blow up their homes and incinerate wedding parties, like the government does?

At this point in time it is not legal to use these drones commercially. . . Legal to use for your own enjoyment. All this from the FAA not able to get up to speed on how to 'control'/allocate airspace for these 'birds'. Primary reason is not enough funding to get a handle on the 100s' of thousands of these things ready to fly.
For now these 'things' fall into the same category [sort of] as model RC airplanes.

Professional use of these, has FAA trying to figure out the HUGE implication of these, many of which will have long ranges and high altitudes. . . they are truly hamstrung due to all the budget cuts/restrictions over the past few years.

cjnielsen_nz: I deliberately did *not* check the box that offers to add me to the mailing list for 'tips' however moments after beginning the download I received an email with 'Congratulations! You’re signed up to receive the latest news, promotions and tips from Olympus'

F you Olympus! NOT happy.

Touchy . . . quick to anger. . . and would guess always a pointer of blame else where. . . not knowing what accountability is about.
