On a photo in the YI M1 Sample Gallery sample gallery (3 comments in total)

Jerodequin: What has actually been done in ACR to this image? It looks a lot worse when it comes to details than the OOC JPEG - for example, the text that reads 'Japan' at the bottom of the watch face is clear and legible on the JPEG - on this edited version it's a blurry mess (if I didn't know it said Japan I probably wouldn't have been able to even guess what it says)...

Thanks!

justmeMN: Mirrorless enthusiasts contend that mirrorless camera cost less to manufacture than DSLRs. That doesn't seem to be reflected in the price of this camera.

Point that S7 at a resolution chart and we'll see how '4k' it really is....

MrTaikitso: As a 3 month GX8 owner, I think this review pretty spot on, although I did not know about the shutter shock until now. I have the 12-35 f2.8 Panasonic lens and just switched on Auto Electronic Shutter and set the shutter to between the speeds mentioned, and the Auto ES did not activate, so I'm assuming the 12-35 lens is not in the list.

Grip wise, this is always subjective. While the GX8 is not as comfy as the G7 or GH4 (or the Oly EM series), I don't find it a problem for my hands thatare medium sized, I'm 5' 11".

As with all m4/3, interior low light stills are a no no, unless you have a very fast lens (20mm 1.7 or the totesamazeballs Nocitron* 1.2), BUT, as per this review, the GX8 really is outstanding in all conditions for video, just keep the aperture wide open and ISO below 1200 and things will stay peachy. I shot a 30 minute movie in a badly lit interior the other day and it turned out great.

*Component of the USS Enterprise 1701 Warp Drive coil. :D

Good to hear - and thinking about it, the reason for that is that we view videos at a normal size - not zoomed in to pixel level, if viewing the stills this way too (i.e. most printing including to quite large levels) then the results for stills at higher iso are also fine.

Mateus1: If GX8 was in GX7 size, I would buy it, but the GX-8 is huge - much bigger than all APS-C I know. GX-7 was great design with just a few issues, it's pity Pana leaved its small and beautiful design. So, I went for Fuji APS-C.

Err, yes - it has a bigger, better shielded EVF and a deeper grip making it easier to hold and use with a range of lenses.

Stick lenses on both (for example the f/2.8 standard zooms) and the real size differences between these two systems become very apparent.

Both great systems, both have pros and cons.

Ocolon: This sounds very interesting. Kudos for innovating!

Ah ok, be interesting to see how well it works then... would have thought the optical solution would be superior (given the same sensor)

Sounds very similar to this which is already on the market in a real shipping product...

JJ Rodin: Exactly who needs this 360 coverage and for what purpose beyond security or event recording ???

Is this for group selfies ?

Pssst, Hint Hint, no-one really wants to see your selfies unless a gorgeous half/full nude woman otherwise NO Do NOT offend us !!

A special device like a web browser and youtube?

There is also the Kolor Eyes player from Kolor.

Granted, you get the "full" experience using a VR headset (or google cardboard or Samsung Gear VR) but it's still good to watch using a standard browser.

I get your point with regard to movies - the content itself becomes a lot more important with 360 video - but I've seen some good ones including a music video where you can watch the standard view but at the same time you can look all around and see what's going on behind the scenes as the video is shot - it's cool stuff and as people get to grips with the content we can only expect more.

Roland Karlsson: They are royal. So, for some strange reason, some wants to read about them and see pictures. Some are living on that need. The usual stuff. If they do not want attention, then they can just renounce their royal status. Yes, it is quite distasteful to chase a young kid, but the kid do not live a normal life in the first place.

And when you're an ordinary person, with little money, resources and opportunity you may find that you are actually trapped in your world, lacking the freedom to do what you want.

We're all to some extent trapped and confined by our situation, those born into extreme privilege and wealth have the means to make their situation a lot more luxurious, anyone who tells you otherwise is talking nonsense. (the debate about happiness is a whole other kettle of fish).

majicmoments: Progress is important i know... but i dont need 40 million pixels per image clogging up my i pad... How about achieving 25 iso Olympus?... or graduated filters in camera?..say grey/blue/nd grads.. now that would be a blast!

Some of us use devices other than an iPad - just because you don't want large files (and rightly so for a device that's not suited to this) doesn't mean it wouldn't be useful for many other people.

Wes Syposz: I am just curious, just noticed right now(I guess I am a little slow), just as all manufacturers put their names in front of the camera, Panasonic is called "Lumix", personally I find this strange...

Lumix is just their brand for cameras - in a similar way to Canon having "EOS" and "Powershot"

In reply to:

Jon Holstein: I wish they made one with a higher end mobile camera module with OIS. Those cant be too expensive, and they are lightweight as well.
And they should make the body small and/or modular, so you can pack it easily.

And it needs to send video via wifi (perhaps downsized and with lower framerate than onboard recording), and have the stabilization features of the parrot, without those, it's just a mess.

ok, and it should be a bit cheaper than the parrot, cause that would be pushing it for the kind of images you would get, even with improved image quality of better camera modules.

The Phantom series paired with GoPro achieves *way* better results than the samples shown by dpreview - they cost more, but are still in the range of affordable for most (no more than a decent camera and lenses) Here's an example of a simple test flight.

In the UK anyone can fly a 'drone' recreationally, but if a person wants to make money from it they need a flight license.

QuarterToDoom: Even though I'm staying away from the Oly cameras atm since I hate anything Sony (ie the Sony sensor) you cant deny even if you're a m43 hater that Olympus and m43 is leading the charge to give consumers what they want and evolving camera technology at a very rapid pace. Just look how they evolved since the E330

The EM1 has a Panasonic sensor.

itsastickup: Seems the dpreview site is suddenly capturing ctrl-click. To power browser users this is exceedingly irritating. Ctrl-click opens a link in a new background tab for later perusal.

Please don't interfere with interface standards, dpreview.

100% agree, it's annoying and unnecessary, whenever I ctrl-click to open a 'connect' article from the main page, it ignores it and opens in the current tab - this is not what any of the non 'connect' articles do. DPreview - is this intentional or just a mistake? Either way please fix it!

jon404: Great. Just what we need... a new technology allowing even-smaller viewfinders. Hey, camera makers! We baby boomers, the only segment left with some savings, have poor eyesight! All the pixels in the world can't help if the display device is physically very small...

On most mirrorless cameras, my experience is that using an EVF uses less power than using the main LCD screen - many others have reported the same within the mirrorless forums.
