On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4: a quick summary article (471 comments in total)
In reply to:

aris14: Τhe only problem I see till now in every cam design is that the digital era needs new designs...
Especially because still and video are getting closer.
It's almost ridiculous still to have a back and lens perpendicularly on it...
There is no need for that any more...
There is no film reel...
We need a design to function with available technology...
We don't need to batch technology in older forms...
Can't they understand that current cams layouts undermine their products?

As for this cam...
The GH-4 seems to be more than just fine...

Cannicos can deal with what they usually do. Low level marketing.

Let's say that cameras design have to be more riffle like. Designs that Olympus and Sony have approached (Oly from late 90's -pre digital era and Sony in 500-600 series). The back in cams was designed just for the film reel, no need for that anymore. Cams must look more like video cams, than a plate with a tube stuck on it, it's useless and non functional design even in its best. When u see a photographer to handle a camera u 'll see that his motions are quite unnatural, no matter that practically all of us cannot see or understand it.
The only bad thing in a more riffle design implementation is the psychological fear that it will produce in a lot of situations... lol

On Sony a7R teardown! Roger Cicala gets his hands dirty article (135 comments in total)

It is said that in the WW2 when Goering inspected the first shoot down Spit and saw its nuts and bolts he said that these screws could be the reason why Nazis will loose the war.
Sony and presumably Pana, no matter what they bought/cooperated or whatsoever (Minolta, Leica, Zeiss, Schneider etc) seems they went back to to the drawing board and started from a blank sheet of paper and a pencil, so t say.
Older firms just tried to put it in, producing a huge batch, I think that they divorced their original creativity in enginnering.
No matter the gentle memories we have some of us from some of them, it's more than obvious why they are quickly disappearing as brands.
I think this is called natural selection, no?

On P1110845 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (3 comments in total)

The lens seems quite capable. The pics are rather mediocre...

Samsung will get the market share in the niche market it aims. So if the other players will not produce very good or bench mark cams priced formidably (i.e really affordable prices) they will practically quit...

Top handy solution even for pros...
But who actually cares for a little (or more ) of " I can do everything" products?

On Panasonic DMC-GM1 preview (639 comments in total)

I think the conditions of studio scene shooting are at least far from being right to say the least... Unless the lens Sony uses is made of ice cubes and Olympus is made of translucent hand soap... All cams are not perfectly aligned in any axis (x,y,z). Even a 10 y.o kid can tell that... i have seen it a lot of times but in this scene it's more than obvious...

On Ten one-of-a-kind cameras from the 21st century article (248 comments in total)

I think that in those days digicams had their designs emerged out from a blank sheet of paper and a pencil. The 707 shows the way. The design was swallowed from marketeers. Cams still adopt a design as some film is still at their backs waiting to roll from one side to another, a rather ridiculous approach based only in our habits. I think a great opportunity was lost in terms of design and functionality mainly because of the stereotype for what a true good camera should look like...
BTW E-10 was a great cam and a lot of people in those days earned a lot of money shooting catalogs and such for web purposes...

aris14: It's very common in Greece to turn b/w photos in coloured ones for people when die, just to print it in porcelain and then put it in their graves. Brrr..!
It's rather low bred to try to overpass the original media.
I guess the next step is to make again the statues of Hermes of Praxiteles, Aphrodite of Milo and such...
Enough with these low bred staff...

True fact! Statues in ancient Greece were painted. Colour was used to give an extra reality. I wouldn't mind to see them in colour if someone could really estimate the real colours they were painted, I would like to see them painted. Since we cannot do it in nowadays due to lack of evidence I prefer them, as all I guess, the way they are. Not "rebuild", neither "corrected" or assumed...
They are just fine as they are...

Zvonimir Tosic: This is disgusting. Not only we believe we can make "better look" by "fixing" the "defects" of old, but don't give a damn about the intention, feelings and vision of the original artist in the first place.
What's next? "Henri Cartier Bresson, 'The Decisive Moment' now in full colour, and with happier mood in all pictures?"

We understand history from its remaining, we do not reconstruct its evidence to understand it.
Please don't misunderstand the above and mix it with the finest scientific work to to visualize creatures, artifacts and constructions for various reasons.
