Compact, yes, but not pocketable (pants)
so, I d rather go with an APS-C sensor with pancake lens, about the same compactness, and comes much cheaper. Depends how much someone wants to pay for impressive 18mm focal length feature.
forpetessake: Sony might have made the most technical advances. But in the end of the day it's the pictures that matter. And honestly looking at all those samples it's hard to deny the two Canons the most pleasing colors and tonality, far better than Sony.
You use the term color in an absolute sense, as if you had to stick with a manufacturer's choice of color rendering & profiles. You can generate any colors with any camera in RAW.
Canon is like a market troll, as if they didn t seem to mean what they produce - unless it s a DSLR.
They put stabilization in anything. Why not here? With OIS and good video specs this would be a genius street allrounder. Sad. What a miss. Perhaps Nikon will come up with a more interesting update for the competitor camera.
I wonder how this resonates among landscape photographers since Canon and Sony have already launched the high MP attack (A7 R etc.).
This is by far the most impressive announcement by Panasonic. instead of shovin a pocket cam and a phone in your trousers, you just have one thing for everyday purpose. And for serious photography, bigger cameras are required anyway. it is only too expensive.
It should have speakers and you should be able to listen to music while shooting.
Finally a Canon innovation, superzoom with a curved lens. Love it. -- Guys?
zoranT: Liers. They try to cash in on their legacy as long as possible - I honestly feel sorry for folks who run around with Leica digital compact cameras. They pay so much money and are cheated into believing it's worth it.
Because it is useful?
If you subjectify everything ("liking"), you can justify anything. I reach judgement by comparing things. If other people don t do it, they are entitled to do so, but that doesn t mean they are right.
"We at Nikon think that our brand has such a strong standing that we can put out any product at any price and customers will buy it."
With Leica, the term "charging" I rarely associate with batteries.

Bhima78: Is this direct from the camera at 1080P? Or is this adding the $1,000 Shogun thing to record it in 4K then downsampled?
how do you know? no exif
bobbarber: Two thoughts:
2) Aperture was f2.8. There are a lot of cheap f1.4 film lenses out there that could be adapted, which would get another two stops!
very hard to focus though with moving objects
hirisov: I live in Hungary, maybe i can help you guys understand the reason of this law. Those who guessed it might be that politicans currently ruling Hungary aren't the best friends of transparency and publicity are close to the truth. The history of this law is so typical and says so much about the current state (capture) of Hungary that it worths to know. Since 2010 when they were elected, this government sistematically attacking the freedom of press, opressing opposing media, turns public media their own propaganda channels, and created the most questonable media law of europe ( see eg, http://www.hrw.org/news/2011/01/07/hungary-media-law-endangers-press-freedom ), and now we are at that stage that reported frauds of the incoming elections are ignored by the authorities.
You didn't mention the anti-semitic wave in Hungary, on both mob and cultural level, including WW2 revisionism, the omission of the term "republic" in the constitution etc. - and then you are beginning to see the whole picture without taking any. Right wing "extremism" is non-existing in Hungary because it is the mainstream.
Getty are just bullies, and I don't trust anything they do. In many cases they claim copyright of images (e.g. where the photographer is unknown), but cannot prove it. I ll never work with them ever again.
Who keeps buying this bulky, generic, plastic stuff?
(unknown member): Really guys? Is this a bad thing? Photographers are usually used to the safety of being behind the camera and never really being in a picture. Why shouldn't we ever be a part of a picture that we're taking? Besides, the camera is great and if you don't like the cheesy rear facing camera then don't use it. This is designed for new photographers that don't always want to hide behind the camera and put everyone else on the spot.
Well, strictly speaking, all opinions are worthless, so is yours. This is an opinion forum - take it easy.
