"prehistoric" Auto ISO. Id' really like to see someone elaborate as to why Panasonic can't get this one sorted out...just bizarre considering a Min. Shutter Speed option used to exist years ago in their cameras.

Everyone who's walked in a photography store and have told the sales rep "I'm looking for a camera that takes nice pictures?" have finally found salvation.

mb shaffer: I calculate a 12.5% improvement in resolution...not 25%. That is, resolution (detail) is a linear metric and is not based on megapixels (area). Shame on Olympus for converting this term from a common and standard metric of sampling into a marketing ploy...

All of you just reminded me I have to catch up on my Big Bang Theory episodes.

A Girard: Let the arguments begin!

I'm just saying it's a matter of time before someone flips their noodle because their precious model wasn't in the mix. Never anything about the choices, just that some people take these awards like their kid didn't get picked for the football team.

Not a fan of the light version. I think some as photographers like a clear separation of borders & images. The white is a bit too distracting (for me anyways).
Please keep the choice open. If not, forum members will have to have a vote as to whether we want to separate from your website...zing!! Brexit reference.

A Girard: Study says you can enjoy an experience, study says dogs don't like to get hugged, study this, study that. I think I need to do a photo session of someone doing a study so I can see how much fun they're having.

Of course you don't. It's just when you scrutinize the information and consider the source of the study, it's often frivolous, bias or a waste of time. And of course you don't know until you read it and it's too late.

On article Accessory Review: Tenba Cooper Messenger bag (83 comments in total)

Too heavy, too light, too big, too small, too expensive, too dark, too colorful, velcro too loud, not enough pouches yada yada yada. OMG let's not forget the zippers!!
It's 2016 and there's a million variations on the market of these "new" bags which seem like variations of the same ol' same ol' year after year. Yawn.

shutterpete: I am thinking of shooting no nonsense budget wedding photographs for clients on a tight budget. Would this FZ1000 be suitable for the job. I have people asking me to shoot their weddings for less than £1K.

I used to shoot weddings in the 80's and am happy shooting under stressful situations!!

I did this a couple of years ago with the FZ1000. It's a very capable camera.

It's that place where you can go to a movie or a public school for that matter and no one is mowing down people with a semi-automatic weapon.

Richard Franiec: Was the second paragraph of the news necessary? Maybe "off topic" forum would be a better place to post it?

Non partisanship is not what you'd expect from forum members, who's partisanship starts with their beloved camera brands.

gskolenda: MY God Panasonic!! This is a Killer camera, But Why, did you not include a Headphone Jack?? Especially that you provided a Microphone Jack!! If I plug in a external Mic, I want to hear the level that it's recording!!! This makes No Sense!

This is a deal breaker for me! The Sony RX-10 II is still on my radar. Yeah, I know the lens is longer on the FZ300, But I use a camera for mostly video.

I can't believe it!

I've shot many events with the FZ1000 and the visually present adjustable camera levels along with the effective limiter function preventing audio peaking in the camera doesn't concern me at all. I don't need this camera, but outside of mic malfunction or a dying battery in your mic, I wouldn't be concerned.

Must be nice for the dog to have that contraption around the face and a heavy spring weighing it down. Ever hear of a dog collar?
