deep7: I'm not into endless laws but this is a good one. If your work is legitimate, get a licence. If you're perving, spying, or intruding on people's privacy, hopefully you won't get that licence.

deep7 You present a floored argument. - E.G. You might be a professional videographer or just damn good at creative videoing... And your ability to create stunning aerial footage has now been stuffed due to some BS goal-post manoeuvre.. Where you now require a license under a category you will not be eligible to obtain.. I,E a subversive tactic.

So who paid that judge off with the prerequisite back-hander.
Typical goal-post moving tactic by a government in order to keep their thumb pressed down on the pleb masses..

Whilst i agree that the FZ1000 doesn't 'feel' as solid as its contemporaries like the RX10 etc, but does still feel solid enough. How solid and 'premium' does the FZ2000 feel in comparison? Have they 'beefed' it up?

Frank Bollinger: This article says the FZ1000 has a touchscreen LCD. I haven't located that feature on my FZ1000 and would very much like to know how to find it (I'm happy to see that the FZ2500 does have one).

HATE touch screens on cameras... Your greasy bacteria ridden smartphone is bad enough.. Why anyone (photohgrapher) would want to smeg up their camera screen too...... hmmmmm

Nice tweaks, but I look at my FZ1000 and still feel satisfied. :)

What an old fart i am!
My first digi was the Canon G1 back in early 2001 - all of 3mp!!- A friend of mine still has it after i donated it to them. The Canon Pro1 followed in 2004 - Interesting bridge camera, superbly built, but had its flaws.
Then i had a brief go with the Olympus SP-570 UZ. This camera was extremely well spec-ed for a tiny bridge cam. 26-520mm equiv zoom, sensor shift IS etc etc.. It even had IN CAMERA Pixel remapping AND a bulb mode that went to over 8 minutes!! - Are you Listening, Sony, Canon, Panasonic etc!!! ... but alas the end result pictures looked like oil paintings, and it was very slow shot-to-shot. ..
However i then moved on to the Fuji S100FS 'legend' in 2008 ... This cam saw me through 10000s of images. It too had its quirks, but it took damn fine images! .. The S100FS saw me right up until last year (2015) when i got the FZ1000 - Now this cam is in a league of its own.. It's taken Sony THREE versions of its RX10 to finally exceed it.

Here's an idea....... Buy a camera. :-D

Oh well. $23 THOUSAND - and is DIDN'T sell!!! Whilst you still have the asset, as far as liquidising it into hard cash goes, you have 100% of nothing, because you overcooked the reserve. The open market has spoken.
How much is something worth? - How much people are prepared to (or are convinced to) pay, and they weren't prepared to pay what you wanted.
Alas if you try again, the bids offered are invariably never as much as people were prepared to pay the 1st time..
Good luck in any case

villagranvicent: what's the point of his collection? Does he have some historical pieces of photographic equipment or simply buys whatever crap he finds at the local flea market?

Creepy, more like crappy. :-D

photogeek: Whoever is the first to make a rectilinear action cam will own the market.

LOL.. For a moment i thought you said 'rectal' action cam.

Apart from the extra zoom reach, the FZ1000 still nails it.

Any clue on the make of the CCD?

In reply to:

Jim: Why bother with articles like this? It's a complete waste of time, particularly on a camera that has been out for so long. How about concentrating on more camera reviews and lens reviews? This ranks right down there with the lame humorless cartoons that used to be run (which aren't any more, thankfully).

Jim = Miserable Sod! :-D

No so long ago this kind of price could have bought you an apartment to live in!!!

In reply to:

jesus_freak: In true Sony fashion, they have excluded a touch screen yet again.

For $1,500 they could not have included a touch screen?

And wipe your greasy crud covered fingers all over the prime display screen.... No thanks... That tech can stay with mainstream smartphones thank you very much!
