On Olympus Stylus SP-100EE Real-world Samples article (17 comments in total)

Reading some posts I really wonder if people can understand what is price.
You cannot demand IQ of a 2K cam and lens out of a 350$ cam.
The same way you cannot expect a 15K car to behave like a 50K or a 100k car or a scooter to behave like a superbike.
Additionally, for the people who think that their comments affect the quality and pricing of products to come it is necessary for them to understand that a mere 10-15% of their influence have some value to next model of any product.
As simple as that...

In the right hands this cam could be a serious tool for paparazzi work. Really serious!
A lot of pics I' ve seen printed in mags and dailies shot with with Canikons are worse compared with the images I 've seen here which are at least a lot more than descent...

aris14: The wishes for a serious successor of the FZ-30/50 became a reality in the FZ-1000. With 4k video bonus, no matter who really can use it.
As for the comments of pixel peepers are always ignored as well the of those who seek the perfection of jpg out of the camera.
I really don't know even one serious enthusiast or pro who does not make a pp touch to practically whatever decides to deliver.
FZ-1000 is a serious tool for a lot of people.
The only thing that I find missing from this baby is the lack of Adobe RGB, but people who know can live without it.
You know they have to keep something for the next model face lift, along with some minor amendments they 'll add for marketing reasons.

I studied more thoroughly DPR' s review so far and not only...
DPR you should change the pattern you use, previous was better.
Sensor's plane must be accurately parallel to what you are shooting.
I also think that if FZ-1000's Mp were 14, we should have a lot more stories to say...
I am impressed with sensor's behavior up to 3200 ISO.
Btw, are tele and wide add on lenses to follow?

aris14: Serious work for teaching photography to serious students in a serious school...

Τhere are people who can seriously merge/mix/experiment with all kind of photography and they produce great results. It's a matter of talent and thorough knowledge. No talent, no result. A little if no talent , a little if no knowledge, lots of marketing. Lots of knowledge with descent artistic if non an artisan's effort, history...

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 real-world samples gallery article (62 comments in total)

Ιt seems to me that this is the most versatile imaging system in the world and you can take it in a rather small bag with you...
As for quality let us be serious...
Everyone who knows the basic about processing in nowadays can produce images of unimaginable quality some 15 years ago in a fragment of cost, time and effort...
The rest is just non essential arguments from people that they think they know usually what they don't even know what they possibly could have known...

In reply to:

Joseph S Wisniewski: I can hardly wait to try this on the Linhoff M679. That little gem of a view camera just cries out for a medium format back with liveview. Now, granted the M679 is a little long for the lenses that make good normals and wides on a 55mm diagonal sensor, but there are still a few tolerable offerings. For product, this thing should be a killer.

You can keep the Fuji 645 lenses and body that the vultures slap a "Hassleblad" label on.

I think that every back from 2005 blows away whatever scanned in whatever drum scanner. Some full frame cams also blow away whatever scanned. Even the output size does not seem much of a problem from 2003.

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?

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...

On Panasonic DMC-GM1 preview (631 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...
