Whatever it is please make the camera smaller. Great things come in small packages.

Ricoh/Pentax find it difficult to move forward so they decided to move backward.

On article DPReview TV: The good and bad of Fujifilm cameras (233 comments in total)

Camera and sensor technology are so advanced that it makes very little difference which camera you pick. Most post their pictures and videos online where the differences in picture quality are hardly noticeable. Choose a camera that fits your convenience and your type of photography. Your mobile phone in most cases is good enough. Unlike dedicated cameras, you have it with you most of the time.

Couscousdelight: I'm a long time Pentax user, and yes, this is ridiculous.
I'll quit this brand as soon as possible.

I'm a long time Pentax user too. I'll get this one so I can continue to use the excellent Pentax lenses I already own. My other camera is an iPhone.

Scratches on lens surface are hardly discernible in photographs because they are out of focus.

In reply to:

Miike Dougherty: As a casual observer, it looks like the sensor is really small compared to the flange. Nothing wrong with this but it does look odd.

It is because these APS-C cameras are equipped with the RF mount, They are fully compatible with existing full-frame RF lenses. Via an adapter it can also work with EF and EF-S glass, but not the EF-M series.

Photoman: Now the just need to send a helicopter to the Moon, to prove that man did walk on the Moon...

It's very challenging for a helicopter to fly on Mars with atmospheric pressure less than 1% of Earth's at sea level. The Ingenuity helicopter is very lightweight at about 1.8 kg with dual counter-rotating rotors spinning at 2400-2700 rpm. As such, it has very limited range and altitude. The atmospheric pressure on the moon is 300 trillion times smaller than Earth's at sea level. It is impossible for airplanes and helicopters to fly on the moon.

BackToNature1: "The GH5 II will be launched with an MSRP of $1699: $300 lower than the original GH5."

Okay. Problem lies with that for just a few hundred more, there are an ton of choices in FF mirrorless cameras. Or even more when it comes to APS-C. I don't think this can survive with an niche market at those prices and or competition.

The GH5 II is a video centric camera with excellent photographic capabilities. How many of those 'other' cameras can rival the GH5 II in video? FF is not for everyone. Especially those that want to travel light with less bulky and lighter lenses with good range.

On article Ricoh's Pentax K-3 III 26MP DSLR is finally here (346 comments in total)

I'll buy this camera for three main reasons:
1. OVF 2. Built like a tank. 3. Pentax glass (that I already own).

vFunct: Apple should just go ahead and make full interchangeable lens camera system.

For a vast majority of people their phones have replaced the 'camera' because their phone is also a camera. Their phones now capture images beyond their need or expectations, and it keeps getting better.

onlyfreeman: I think I'll save up to buy the K-1 III in 2033 instead.

J C Strange: DO NOT BUY INTO THIS SYSTEM

After you wore out the camera, the lens can still be used on Panasonic's Lumix.

pollup: The problem with flip down screen is that the photos will often show people looking down a bit. I think people look nicer when either looking straight or a bit up, and a bit sideways can be fine too.

Humble with a downcast outlook is also known as being sad and depressed.

A great product at this price point. My only gripe is the lack of a mic jack. Mic jack should come standard on cameras shooting 4K video.

kaipr: They just made the X-T4 a video centric camera, why would they change their X-H line to be video centric?

I'm really hoping for more non-video cameras with their good photography screen design.

Capabilities in photo and video need not necessarily be mutually exclusive.
