Who's pocket? Fits mine perfectly!

ERyc: Some insane salesmen (there can't be technical reason) decided EU people are not allowed to use 30fps video :-( So maybe on next trip to US... I'd somehow understand that limitation on $200 camera but not on $800 (EUR 800 actually) one...

Yea, and because the EU decided to heavily tax what they consider a video camera's and manufactures are too lazy to create camera's for different markets we get stuck with 29:59 minute video limitation. So tit for tat.

surelythisnameisfree: This does seem a remarkable camera. The only problem I have is that I see the tearing/rainbows in the EVF to such an extent that I can't use it. It's hard to believe that an OLED VF would have added that much more to the production cost. Clearly the testers aren't members of the group that do see these rainbows as it doesn't seem to have impacted the score at all

The vast majority of people do not have the defect in their vision that cause them to see this phenomenon in the view finder. I am sure Panasonic knows this and that's why they stuck with this type of EVF. It also can fit into a smaller space than the current OLED technology. I have a friend that tells me when he looks into my Nex-6 which is OLED that it seems to pulsates at a very rapid pace and makes him feel nauseated. So it seems that the OLED EVF's have viewing problems for some people also.

guy catelli: How simple is it (or not) to set the meter on "P" and at the same time increase or decrease the exposure of all the shots 1 or more stops?

Very easy. The exposure compensation dial works in P mode.

rsp: Sorry if this has already been discussed here in one of the 1825 previous posts: somebody has taken a shot at 24 mm with the LX100 and just a moment after with the Fuji X30 at 28 mm. It seems that the angle of view is nearly the same. The explanation would be that the LX100 has so much distorsion at 24 that the remaining field of view, once corrected, is near that of a 28 mm.
Did somebody here has experienced that?
Thanks.

P.S. Please note that I didn't take these pictures myself, so I'm not yet sure of that, there maybe some mistake.

I have the LX100, and a Nex-6 and Nikon D3200. I compared them a few days ago at 24mm and 75mm they were identical at 24 and 75 equivalent as far as I could tell.

Thanks, It is starting to look like my D700 upgrade has come. Not exactly what I wanted in way of build but close enough.

Robert Morris: Touch Screen = No.

Yea, that's why I posted that it does not have one, because DPR had stated it did in a couple of their article's. It now looks like they have corrected that error.

In reply to:

Robert Morris: Touch Screen = No.

I was correcting the error in DPR's statement saying that it has a touch screen. It does NOT have one. Also on their spec page that state no time lapse mode which it does have.

Touch screens are OK but I would rather have the dials and button for direct access like the LX100 has. PreOrder mine on the first day it was available.

Looks like they have corrected the error about the touch screen.

Good stuff. Now how about a few more in the other aspect ratio. Please!

In reply to:

Rexyinc: missed opportunity? or will this be an expensive add-on later?

they should of put a couple high powered 3w LEDs for a video light on that flashy unit :) - Then I would bother to carry it around :)

... just saying.. oh hey what's on kick starter these days?

Or the Nissin i40 which has a a better video light and more flash range than the Panasonic for about the same price.

In reply to:

PILUIS: ¿Es que no se ha probado el estabilizador en 4k?
Pues falla algunas veces y se muestra inestable tanto en estabilización vertical como horizontal. Luego después de un rato se queda normal y estabiliza bien.
Esto debe ser un problema de recorte del sensor. Y de interferencia de los ejes de estabilización.
Estamos esperando un nuevo FIRMWARE de Panasonic que corrija este pequeño defecto. Con lo bien que va la cámara..... y esto empaña a las tomas con zoom y con i-zoom tanto en tomas en HD como en 4K.
Es un defecto que no puede advertir Panasonic en el manual y así se lava
las manos de hacerle trabajar a los ingenieros que han diseñado el estabilizador.
Cuando queráis os pongo videos con este defecto que me ha costado cambiar ya 2 veces la cámara y nada sigue haciéndolo.
De todas maneras es mi cámara favorita y aconsejo a todos/as su compra.

Thanks, for this information. This is a problem I hope that Panasonic fixes soon.

Francesco De Lorenzo: Having to build a new system, would you buy the Fuji or Sony A7? They cost the same.
Thanks

Fuji, I am jumping from Sony e-mount ASAP. Sony's E mount has been out longer and has very few quality fast lenses and I don't expect it to improve anytime soon. Look at the new FE mount 4 Lenses and 3 body's. Sony likes to sell bodies and gadgets and not camera systems. They are proving that they're an electronics company first not a camera company. Very sad as some of the cameras are great just noting to put in front of the senors.

abortabort: "New style Sony" surely means Multi Interface shoe yeah? If so should be a nice travel flash for the A7/R / a6000. Also interesting for the RX10 with leaf shutter and GX1/II.

Really doubt it will have the Multi-Interface shoe more likely just the standard ISO one. Which is new for Sony cameras.

On Kodak reborn: A look at JK Imaging's 2014 lineup article (195 comments in total)
In reply to:

VENTURE-STAR: This might be an okay camera for some users depending on price, but it's unlikely to make any inroads against existing 4/3 products. As somebody else said, it's made by an obscure company and trades on a hollow name.

In reality, Kodak missed the boat about 15 years ago and they couldn't see the writing on the wall. They are virtually a deceased company who now belong to photographic history.

Maybe, Maybe not. You could probability ask 10 people if they knew that Kodak was out of business and I am sure a majority of them wouldn't have a clue. So the name alone will bring in some customers. If there are any out there and if the camera gets any shelve space or some good Ad campaigns.

Spectro: wow, that is thin. But with a lens attached it still not that pocketable. Maybe if they had a pancake lens.

LOOK at the picture above the specifications page!

In reply to:

zackiedawg: I do wonder why there's always a comment in Dpreview reviews and impressions about the 'Bionz' processor name, which is always called out as silly or inexplicable - yet no criticism or sarcastic comment is made about Nikon's 'Expeed', Canon's 'Digic', or Fuji's 'X-Trans'. It seems all manufacturers give their processors a silly name, so why always the jab at Sony naming theirs? (This goes back through years of reviews of Sony cameras). Just pointing it out!

I guess we are lucky they don't review CPU's or they would have a field day with all of those "Silly" names. These processor have become such an important part of the imaging pipeline that all of the manufactures had to give them a name so the costumer would know when they were upgraded/improved. I think Panasonic started this with there Venus processor before Nikon, Canon etc started pointing it out to the world as well.

In reply to:

SteveY80: I'm surprised that the EVF has been downgraded compared with the NEX 6...

I guess it's probably the same 1.4mp model that's in the RX10, and by all accounts there's nothing wrong with that, but I'd have thought that they'd be showing off their best technology in this camera.

Their saving the best for the a7000.

Robert Morris: Looks like Micro 4/3 has lost a lot of it size advantage with these new Fujifilm offerings.

@dombi those camera's aren't in the same class as the X-T1 and E-M1. Even the Oly Pro zooms are larger than the Fuji's given the equivalent zoom ratio and aperture. Just say'in. I don't own either but will decide which one I will pick soon. At least they understand it's about the glass unlike Sony with the Nex system
