On article Hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 (304 comments in total)

Almost Everything is fine !

Forexample; look at the size of this 35-100mm !!! STUNNING. Its already one of the most compact lenses of all (excluding Q mouth of Pentax) and it goes even smaller! And new touched pancake 14mm F 2.5 (Sad its not 12mm... anyway),

But I have dificulties to understand, why no tilting screen ? On GX7, oth EVF and screen dances, in this one none of them ! Yet flash is not built in ! Oh Panasonic....

İts like rolex watch. Surely there are multi functional army watches by far better priced from Casio
Or there are thousand other car brands. No need the drive Rolls-Royce ...

IT - IS - A -UNIQUE - LUXURY- ITEM !!!

I also don't see ANY logic to buy something exact same than Panasonic models. But this one is UNIQUE !

After nine months, its still hurts when I touch the same spot in my wallet.

The spot, where 650€ gone to my Lumia 1520. Its an excellent thing. I don't even need a tablet or Olympus XZ-1 replacement.

And now for more amazing stuff (not the android piece of junk but the camera) amazing 900€ !!!

Keytsa: Winter...
It's 8 AM, sun is barely up in the sky, you're awake, and you grab your camera, feeling mighty to yourself because you know you just bought yourself a brand new 512GB Sandisk SDXC card...
You know you have around 7 hours of daytime, and you set your camera to burst 1 picture per second on jpeg fine setting. Your finger is itching, and you click shutter...
In your mind tought is passing what if it's not enough?! No, you wave, card is big, but you wonder, maby, jpeg is 8MB and 7 hours, no, I should have put 2 pics per second. Ha, well, tomorow...
Life does not get any better than this. :))

Winter... In Finland...

Where the battery (even a car battery !!!!!) in the biggest baddest camera would not resist more than 1 hour, in that kinda shooting scale :D

Not camera, not format (video 4K or even 444K !!!) no nothing is a critical factor for such memory unit. But battery limitation is.

Now Energizer, Duracell or something else turn: It's time to invent plutonium consumer AA battery :)

I suddenly remembered my high school days :) 1999 un particular, when there was Pentium III 500 mHz Pc's were expensive like nothing else, and a friend of mine throw his PlayStation's (the first one :) ) joy stick. His reason was "it was broken, he hit by electricity!!!" (which was vibrating only :) )

From these days to 512GB card ! Dude, in year 2000, 5000 year old Chinese archives takes only 120gb space!!!! Now it is .... I can't stop thinking of this , not trolling... But sounds like I am.

Ok I stop commenting on this.

MediaDigitalVideo: Dedicated to which 4K camera ?

@ Tan

I Agree on that. They actually consider selling that kinda "physical" stuff (contains movie(s), music album(s) nd painters art work.etc). Cards shoupd be the new cd /dvd /blurays now. Buying online (itunes etc.) Does not give chance to give/sell your property to anoter person. Even you buy it as your own !!!!

That would be so cool to own this card for a sports or new reporter... It can fit a DECADE inside !!!

Imagine; You start your career when Kennedy was the President and still there would be few hundred free shots to take Reagan's speech at West Germany, where he screams

"Mr. Gorbachov, tear down this wall !!!" :D

PS: Thanks to its price none of the consumers wanna buy this. Even some ultra rich idiots! I hope... Dude IT-IS-512-GB !!!!!! EVEN IT WOULD BE 128GB WHAT DA EFFFFFF.. !!!!!

As a phone Lumia products are flawless. Onyl thing that I wish to see is accessories as Sony made for its xperia line.

- camera pods
- battery built-in case
- durable cases.

And maybe a case, that I can put a C-mouth lens front of the camera and go nuts with photography :)

Samsung edge is a brilliant and elegantly styled idea. It would be my decision over watches.

On Connect post Apple announces iPhone 6 and 6 Plus with new imaging features (291 comments in total)

One thing (only one thing!) that I like on Apple phones is, they are physically same ! And many 3rd party producers world wide make harware stuff for iPhones. (tripods, special mic.s durable cases etc.)

BUT NOW there are two different model ! Apple should be brave to take a radical decision.

Either way would be radical; hold on the smaller phone or release a phablet only.

Now they give both... Lets see.

(actually as a Lumia 1520 owner the best size of phablet is 6" !... Anything smaller is phone, anything bigger is a tablet. Only Sony Xperia Ultra is the thin border line of the phablet. But its size only allows the lady customer, who already holds a handbag! Huge for a man without a suit, or any kind of jacket.)

Nokia holds its place for camera; The Top.

But real screen revolution was the Samsung edge from ifa. Such a great idea.

IPhone created a monster,which has eaten its creator in the end. Bye bye Apple ;)

michalc: Hmm, Olympus XZ-2? What's all the fuss about?

EXACTLY !

Apart from wifi, there are not really "big" new thing.. And with its lower price tag, great accessories (lens adapter, mic, macro light arms, evf) Olympus XZ-2 is still more serious to consider.
