Michael Ma: I thought the use of the word "free" was interesting. The only company that I can recall that's been charging for incremental firmware updates is Apple. iPod Touch firmware updates.
FREE has become a four letter word in today's agressive market, Michael. And, as you, I stick to APPLE for my apps & firmware updates. I came to the resolution that for WHAT I record on video, the ipad/ipod/iphone quality suffies well & plenty. I'm no Sam Peckinpah nor George Lucas. All I shoot is family and some public FREE events in town. I replaced perfectionism for FUN since some time ago.

Don't we all?:)
papa natas: Excuse me Mr. Kimio Maki...Are you on medication? or it may be that you're peeing on my leg and tell me it's raining...?Because if you were listening to your customers you'd had by now upgraded the pixel quality on the a6000, plus the choice of lenses for that model, instead of hitting the market with a cheaper a5000.For what concerns me, the only great things coming out from your labs are the RX10 and the RX100 series. BOTH excellent on price & quality.
Amen to that, bro!
We all thought the same when the RX10 hit the market in 2013, yes, but then the camera had excellent reviews (not only the over inflated ones from the editor) But ever since about a year its price came down, and I truly believe that it's a bargain for its price, quality and durability. The new RX10M2 has no revolutionary facts for me, apart from the better 4K configs. and maybe some other apps that one almost NEVER use.I like Panasonic, yes, but why don't they equip them with a better screen? I'm not an electronic visor user. I use glasses.

NOTHING is private on Facebook.Do you hear me?NOTHING...!!!!
Not quite thyere yet the shot.Now, go back there and it will help th further a foot and a half.The results will be incredible.
I want to give you a tip of my hat for your fantastic work.I also want to congratulate you on your honesty and the transparency you show when you explain the process (I'll never be able to do such thing) you went and the tools you employed to get such magnificent results.This is NOT about equipment. This is about dedication.Some other prize winners with overcooked images should take note.Thanks for sharing.

Tom Goodman: Since first releasing this camera a few years ago this is the fourth iteration. There have been several improvements of note. however, the price has jumped nearly 100%. That's not just progress. that's greed.
Greed?SONY...?WHAT are you talking about?Although Sony has engulfed the lion's share of music, film, and whatnot other imaging productions until kingdom come, I would NEVER accuse Sony of greed.
Jim Evidon: What did he use for lens and camera?
Did anybody EVER ask Ernest Hemingway:Oh, what typewriter did you use to write that novel?Or asked Miguel de Cervantes:That feather you used to write Don Quixote, was it gander, goose, chicken or turkey feather?
Yeah,Give me the same photo gear, the same places, and the time it takes, and I'll for sure, my hand on fire...That I will NEVER get the same results.I love them all, but number 5, is a bold experiment on perspective, peerless B&W mastering, and a vision of the World sought by futuristic film makers.One has to be little to see the World big.
This will be the perfect travel camera when they'll FINALLY get to the moon.
buybuybuy: Just about anybody with a decent camera could pull of shots like these. The problem is that, for most people stuck in a 9-5 M-F job, these trips are few and far between--if ever!
I have an indecent camera, therefore I'll NEVER be able to take such beautiful images..How a camera can be decent or indecent?If it is covered by its leather case, does it make it decent?Not covered and with the zoom lens elongated to its maximum focal length, would it make it indecent?In front of children?
hrt: No trees in Iceland, although historians say that there should have been some trees before humans have consumed them.Volcanic island - coastal areas inhabited by descendants of Norwegian Viking and Irish Celts, with central parts of the island covered with ice.
WHAT...!!!???No trees in Iceland?How do dogs go about their business?
I don't see the need to have this camera beefed up with technology and all these f-stops testings plus raw & whatnot cooked up possibilities to shoot....snapshots of a day at the races?You guys are here debating as if ANY of these takes will make the museum wall.Can't you see that since three years ago camera manufacturers discovered that instead of giving firmware ups to respectable customers they're selling the same camera under a new tag with apps to idiots?When it comes to snapshots & video takes I stick to my ipod5. It's unobtrusive, fun and non aggressive. I laugh at all those idiots wearing caps, t-shirts, vest & camera name's bandannas to run and incommode people because they are taking DA picture...
papa natas: $4 for a miserable pack of Rainbow Carrots?Stop the madness, please!!!They won't make you live longer, as those health prophets tell you..(?)And they won't taste better either.Off the mill supermarket carrots will do just fine.
Well, yes, Sir Corey, I went and read the nice article. It concentrates on the sayings of a pilot named John Cunningham and his super night vision, that made him an ace of the RAF. Although it takes more than a great vision to become an ace. There most be some other skills involved, uh? I've never heard of the Red Baron being a carrot eater. I enjoyed the reading, I thank you for being so nice about it, and you just provided me with a nice subject to talk at supper time.Have a great day!
To Sir Corey of Deane:They were short of amo?To Jeff Keller:What? Rodeo Drive Market?
