RichRMA: It's still a glorified Coolpix, really. I can't really see the point in having interchangeable lenses on a camera like that, except for novelty purposes. Nikon and Canon; the DSLR "boom" isn't going to last forever so would it really threaten your entire existence to release at least 1 (no pun intended) serious mirror-less?

I agree its hard to settle on this camera but if you would be a Nikon pro you would like it .. anytime!

and its price will come down, soon!!

Those products also came with cheaper slower lenses as options and am sure you know the difference mate, between those kit lenses and premium bundle!

Does anyone know where it is made???

Very tempting to pre-order one to work with my Olympus primes lenses on my OMD Em5 camera.

Thank you

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

Brightshade: IMO 4K is a headline grabber but mostly a gimmick. I'll be buying the GH4 on day 1 for its faster sensor, sharper OLED and focus peaking. Sounds like it'll be at least 1 stop faster, if not more. The biggest plus will be the 50% faster rolling shutter. Few mention it but it's the lack of global shutter that limits the Canon DSLRs & the GH3 for pro video work, something the test video makers always miss, as they lug their tripods around on holiday. The GH3's current 70 mbps bit rate is already adequate as a B camera for Full HD acquisition for folks like the BBC, but the shutter spoils the show

I'm making 3x1hour TV docs, posting at a decent London facility and the grading and online pros there have been very impressed with the GH3's flex, depth and sharpness, (I've edited around the giveaway wobbly frames ;-). the GH4 will be even better and at an amazing price. BIG shame they didn't move the headphone output. Next steps, built in NDs! (who'll be first to do this electronically??)

gh4 is a good enough starter on 4k!!

In reply to:

SF Photo Gal: Except for my GX7, still been holding on to my old stuff:LX3, GH2, and my FZ50. I don't use the FZ50 any more tho and probably should give to someone. Don't think it's worth much on ebay.

I skipped the GH3, but I think I'll start savings up for the GH4.

Yeap old Pany cameras are gems .. I am also keeping my GH1 and not gonna sell it until it die completely and even though I got GX7 am still thinking to get hold of GH4. Other than features, IQ (Dxo result) is promising too!!

and am hoping to use it on dji S800 with GH3's gimbal!

In reply to:

Mike Yorkshire: Without it having an integrated viewfinder of some kind I have lost interest already.

They never learn do they?

they learned and found that tiny hole with a mirror on the name of vf is not helping anybody. So they removed it, save the cost and bulk and put a bigger brighter lens. very good trad-off imo

In reply to:

raizans: If only this camera had a built-in, rangefinder-style EVF! The Sony A6000 is even shorter than the G1X, and it still manages to include an EVF.

I've got my fingers crossed that the Mark III will get it right. The multi-aspect ratio sensor and lens really hit the mark.

again, no kit lens on NEX gives as bright aperture and as useful focal length range!

saycheese1985: How can I buy this over the Panasonic GM1, regarding what the photographic results the latter can yield given its m43 sensor and the ability to adopt small fast prime or compact zoom lenses?They are in the same league regarding size, price, and functionality.

canon lens is brighter and got better range than the kit lens.

EdBov: Comparing the K5 video score with the K3 video score: DPR finds out the K5 better???????
I believe they are totally mad.......... because the video was the reason the Pentax K5 got a bad score.

it might be on par with k5 (an oldish camera) but not with latest flagships from its competitors

Naveed Akhtar: guys .. this is a kit lens ..
since many of you are complaining ....

just a reminder!! :))

For instance am using prime lenses on my m43 camera and never invested in any kit lens. But mostly am shooting at apertures between f4 to f6. This lens should be very good for those scenarios. landscapes, daytime shots etc.

Barnet, not a big deal dude!! Sony RX100 have to get that fast lens (at wide end) to make any sense.

For Nikon, I am taking the kit lens, just as a kit lens. Slow, cheap and sluggish. I will keep it just for casual day out, as its small, easy and fun. But the camera is giving you nikon mount with adapter that means, other than an pocketable camera its excellent as a second camera for Nikon professionals where they would prefer its crop factor.

Also its auto focus system and burst shooting mode are awesome. I clearly see some potential in this camera!

fdfgdfgdgf: Very old news,good product for 5 years ago slow lens,no IBIS small sensor
i am getting sleepy from Nikon,sold the bulky DSLR

Hi jtan the point is if its reasonably priced it makes more sense than the more pro level v-series. It's cheaper, lighter, smaller and a good value for a second camera for Nikonians!!

I am not talking about how marketable it is .. or how much business it will make .. but purely .. where it's more useful!

it is a good camera as it is .. we have seen so many IBIS ILCs from Olympus those are problematic in smaller bodies ... so no thank you!

Small sensor? Nikon 1 system will remain CX .. look else where .. go for Fuji or Sony APSC or m43 or Fullframe Sony .. you have so many options these days ...

The main target for this camera is for Nikon pro with bigger bodies who want to get hold of a smaller pocketable body with a daytime walk-around smallish kit lens and top-notch AF system to use it with their long professional tele lenses to get the extra reach with an adapter.

or for newbies who want to move from compacts to an ILC and later get further in this with bigger lenses from other systems.

If that's not you, it is not for you. I agree it is not an ideal complete system, and probably it's not meant to be!!
