  • @Foskito Picasso's art looks the way it does as a result of his skill and the medium he used. If he had used a digital camera instead of brush, paint and canvas, his images would have looked more...

  • Yes, you choose a film and part of the result is given. All consentration goes into composing the photo. The moment you have pushed the shutter release, the job is done, at least the creative part...

  • I suppose Picasso's art is also inferior to your digital photos. Your photos probably look much more realistic than his paintings.

    We all have different reasons for taking photos. Some just want...

  • Given the choice between clay plates and some or most of the digital media that have been popular the last 60 years, I'm afraid the clay plates would win most of the time. You could read them...

  • Good news. It's the first indication that things will continue during the transition to the new owners. The 8-25mm sounds like an intersting lens, and is probably much smaller and lighter than the...

  • Installations with this kind of need typically have generations of tapes with different recycling intervals, like daily, weekly, monthly, yearly etc. I remember back in the seventies when at the...

  • I'm not looking for a camera to replace the GX8, although I might buy a GH5 for paid video work since the price of that camera is falling. The Fuji is a nice camera, but it costs two and a half...

  • @OremLK Which $700 option with a good viewfinder (1.46×, 0.73× 35mm equiv., 3,680,000 dots) and fully articulated high resolution LCD (1,840,000 dots) are you talking about?

    And before you tell me...

  • @Osa25 So use your GM5 and be happy. It should be pretty clear by now that there won't be a GM6 or GM9 or whatever. Reason? Panasonic probably didn't make a profit from it. My guess is also that...

  • @Osa25 I don't know who "we" are, but I am a GM5 owner who sees the G100 as a major improvement for a small camera. While the GM5 is a very cool camera with all the "pro" features in an incredibly...

  • ... Panasonic would most probably have made a GM6 etc. But they were expensive little cameras that broke far too easily, so Panasonic tries something else. I doubt they made much profit on the GM5. ...
  • @arjunmehta Please tell me what parts of the camera are more important than "viewfinder, screen, sensor and mic port". Processing has probably been changed also, since sensor and video specs have...

  • Here's some interesting facts for those who want to compare the G100 with the slightly smaller GM5:

    - The GM5 launched at $900 with the 12-32mm lens
    - It had an LCD rsolution of 921,000 dots vs....

  • Do vloggers use 4K? I haven't seen any 4K vlogs, and it would clearly be overkill for something that is mostly watched on a phone or tablet.

  • I don't do vlogging, but I consider this camera as a possible replacement for my dying GM5. The articulated LCD, much better viewfinder plus the mic input make it a very good replacement. If my...

  • I like the size, and ergonomics look fine, but the 4 year old G85 is still a better camera in more or less every way, and cheaper too these days.

  • @cdembrey Let me modify my claim a bit:
    The OM Zuikos and the PL offer sufficient sharpness. The Zeiss lenses are, like most modern Zeiss lenses, extremely sharp with strong colour and...

  • @obsolescence - Optically, the PL 45mm is excellent with typical Leica characteristics. What it can be criticised for is:
    - Slow AF
    - Focus by wire
    - Focus returns to infinity when I turn off the...

  • There are many excellent "half size" macros that also offer great sharpness and beautiful bokeh. A few examples:

    - OM Zuiko 50 and 90 mm f/2 Macro
    - Zeiss ZF/ZE 50 and 100 mm f/2 Macro
    - Panasonic...

  • Perfect for drifting, which I guess is similar in distance and speed to indoor horse events. One of the few MFT lenses that I trusted for continuous AF. I used it on a GH3 back then. Current ...
