aris14: No matter if this or any other camera offering an easy way for selfy pix have the best IQ ever or whatever whatsoever...Selfies is the depiction of an ill egoism and selfism thus depicting the problems of a rather significantly ill culture... Or should I say civilization..?
Sorry guys, all I read from your answers is your shallow approach upon the obvious with some low bred catchy thoughts. Of course people take pictures of themselves from the time photography invented (the first "selfy" captured the late 18th century) and this OK for me. But the tendency of shooting selfies just because there is cheap bandwidth and social media, as evidence or whatever of whatever, no matter that is explicable as a need, it is equally pointless. You 'll read and view a lot about it in some years in documentaries of our era the same way you see documentaries about smoking or buying anti nuclear shelters in 60s or 80s.No offense meant anyway.
ThePhilips: I do not get the problem many readers have with the "selfie" screen.
It is still some sort of tilt LCD.
It is definitely cheaper to make than the proper tilt or swivel, and that contributes to the overall low price of the camera.
Or would people prefer the cheaper cameras like before to have no tilt at all?
Selfies is the field of cell phones...

I like both lenses despite the cam itself.
Big cams in the area of $4,000+ need to be smaller.Big FF DSLRs will form a niche pro market, some will turn mirrorless though.4/3rds and M4/3ds will be the standard in less than 3 years.Some compact will deliver IQ similar to mid range DSLRs of 3 years ago and...the average bag of an enthusiast amateur will weigh less than 2,0 kilos (4,4 pounds) including body, 2 or 3 lenses and parafernalia till end of 2016.
The increased drones use, the light field cams and the 4k video ability.The increased image quality you can find in small sized cams and the maturity of Dslrs.The above need the DPR staff's creativity to approach matters to follow emphasizing in the essence of things.
Lehik: Whether the flare problem is a real or not, Nikon USA seems to have addressed it:https://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/19336
We all know extremities of readers who write down their opinions the most inadequate way to say the least. It happens in all forums/boards/social media. We can figure out their motives or whatsoever and we just don't engage ourselves in any sort of exchanging even a single word.
Hysteria is too much though...
Κudos to Olympus!
Are pro Nikons Canons etc pro Eisos ? Nope!Few are in nowadays...
olypan: I think this may be a record advertising post. Brought back to the top again and again.
I guess Nikon pays well.
Yes. I thought the 24 hour repeat coverage of the Canon 7DII was impressive too.
@SmilerGrogan: I tend to agree with you based upon my experience (similar to you at least and in technical press), but there is always a way to affect the experiment. Technical press has the advantage that no matter what someone thinks, there are a lot of numbers that have to justify his/her opinion, thus making his tricky job quite difficult.To my experience, audience is more keen to words than numbers.I am not implying anything against the guys working in DPR, I am just giving the key factor of how audience is comprehending/perceiving anything published.Language remains more powerful tool than numbers, which in many cases is sad, but true.As for the cam I say that Nikon caught up the time towards Canon more than successfully.
Paul Guba: Comparing two cameras with similar sensors is like comparing two cars with V8 engines. The 645Z and the Alpa are two completely different machines. I won't justify the huge price difference but at the same time you can't compare the two as tools. Phase also has better software and years of experience getting the best data from a sensor. There both great cameras but the similarity ends at MP.
Btw few days ago I was looking at the pix shot with Canon, Leica and Hassie lenses mounted ib various bodies and I practically picked out the who is who of the manufacturer of each lens. I can't really explain how I do it, I just trust my eyes, which is not a scientific explanation (lol). Maybe it's just my idea, but it works for me (benefits still uknown - lol again)!
@Mescalamba: You forgot to mention Silkypix (lol)...What I am trying to tell is that there is not a lot of people comprehending the differences between chromaticity, hue, chrominance, colour or definition and sharpening or micro contrast you name it. I guess that for a real enthusiast/pro these terms, even as adjectives to words having to do with colour parameters may not sound "chinese", but please let me have my, at least, light doubts about it. (I also guess that pixel peepers rarele have to do with such terms).Software as LR seem that they offer a more comprehensive approach and this is a credit for the guys they created it.
I really don't know a lot of people who can take the full out of Phase raw conversion software. It is too scientific for a lot of people I know. As a software seems to be the best out there though, it has delivered great results with Canon's D1s III files, really astonishing.
Save the forests!Stop using wooden grips..!
Seriously now, are there out there more than a hundred guys who, for some reasons -no matter what these reasons may be - need such a system?
Some 10 years ago I had purchased some images from fotolia, I t took me more than an hour to find something descent that I liked. At least I found something that I could use. Very low quality at those days.Good prices though. I haven't checked them out, since now.
aris14: Heavily overpriced.
I would say the same no matter if I had a dozen Hassies or a Kodak instamatic 133x. Btw I have used almost all the heavy guns out there, Pana FZ 30 is just my baby and my "weapon" (just for the fun of it) against all my pro friends who I serve with my advice if needed in a lot of fields regarding photography both as science and art. Furthermore I am very happy for I don't have to buy them these new staff. For a lot of reasons.
PS: Thx for looking at my gallery.
Το much ado....
