14mm F2.8 can use lens filter or not?
It seem to have a build in lens hood that would stop the use of filter
anyone know?
Thanks

On article Accessory Review: Peak Design Slide Camera Sling strap (137 comments in total)
In reply to:

mrmrbill: Custom SLR "Glide One" is an option that addresses the reviewer's "cons" whilst keeping the same great features.

So Black Rapid the original and Glide One the imitator?
Which is better? like more comfortable and more easy attach/detach?

BlackRapid, Glide One and this Slide Camera Sling

Is there a consensus which one is best in terms of comfort and ease of put on and remove

Thanks

smartphone is a small sensor , fixed focal length camera
It got a sensor , a lens , a screen
it is a camera

Problem is the only traditional camera company that profit from it is Sony selling sensor

No matter what, I will not buy another 16MP MFT sensor
I have already buy 4 cameras with this sensor
Yes this time without AA filter, so what
even if u believe Panasonic , it increase resolution by 10%
so increase 1.6 MP?

Panasonic should put the 20 MP sensor in. It fear it would hurt the sales of GX8 and annoy current GX8 owner

But that's there problem, this is a new camera model in 2016 and it should be 20 MP and called GX8 II
I don't know how many would buy. Not me. It is not cheap and a new camera model in 2016 should not be 16MP

Don't understand what Fujifilm think? Who will buy this?
The very over-priced X-pro2 camera at least got some captive buyer that have XF lens

with nothing better than GRII, only worse
Really they think there will be hardcore fujifilm fans that will buy this?
Reality will wake them up

Fuji fans may disagree, most in the photographic community still prefer Bayer sensor
X-trans not a feature but negative

In reply to:

keeponkeepingon: So I skimmed the review and did not see the answers to the following questions. If I missed them I apologize:

Does the A6300 lock out many functions after a burst? I purchased the A6000 based on your recommendation but the lock up makes it almost useless for sports.

Can I take a picture while taking a video? (as I can with every camera and phone that I own except the A6000)?

Thanks!

DSLR allow picture taking while taking video?
Anyone know?

I can told u can't take a pic while taking video
this is not just A6300 but almost any mirrorless camera i know

only exception I know is Panasonic GM1 which only allow 4 pics and buffer fill up
have to stop video and start a new one for another 4

i don't understand why most camera lack this feature
as I think this is very useful and an important feature

1.55µm large pixel mean what?
what is the sensor size and BSI?

US$699 for the 32GB model.
What? Is this more expensive than iphone or S7

Why Panasonic don't use EFCS when designing GX8?
If they can overlook this well know problem than one don't have much confidence in this company

an inexcusable mistake for such as expensive camera
even GM!/GM5 has one
just can't understand

Is it better than DXO Prime or not?
I think DXO prime has the best NR of any software, is that correct?

Jefftan: Is this software good?
what is the best software for realistic HDR?
I am especially interested in 1 shot HDR
Thanks

" Realistic HDR filters are exactly what they say. Massive range without the dreamlike quality"

If so it would be a great tool to maximize the dynamic range of my APS-C sensor to full frame level
I am thinkng I don't need full frame for dynamic range in landscape if I can maximize the dynamic range in 1 shot RAW

In reply to:

Jefftan: 210 gram is too heavy for a MFT slow lens
$500 is too expensive, fair price is at most $300

no point arguing if 12-40 F2.8 is a kit lens or not
definitely not cheap kit lens price

i agree with u that 12-40 F2.8 is the best zoom lens optically for the MFT system
but no way i would use a 400 gram lens for MFT

with E-M10 II total weight become 800 gram!!!!!
that is approaching full frame level (A7II with kit lens 900 gram)

even with GM1 total weight 600 gram, way too much

On article CP+ 2016: Hands-on with new Panasonic lenses and ZS100 (103 comments in total)

for all the 1 inch sensor camera since RX100
ZS100 is the most useful

in my opinion, the real use of small sensor should be big zoom
I use MFT for the same purpose

long zoom lens for full frame or even APS-C is too big to be practical

In reply to:

Steve Photographer: Always nice to hear of MFT lens additions. But what I really need from panasonic is a fast aperture, wide prime that is image stabilised. 12mm or 10.5mm would be great. Image stabilisation in this type of lens would not only allow handheld stills in lower light (or lower ISO), while also permitting indoor video on the hoof - without the faf of a rig. Of course IBIS is the holy grail but this isn't available in Panasonic cameras yet, at least for 4K shooting.

panasonic should make a 11mm or 12mm F1.7 lens

Link | Posted on Feb 24, 2016 at 12:09 UTC

why not buy 14-140mm, similar weight and similar size, 10x zoom
