It is also possible that the lossy RAW compression contributes to this. This is especially true for isolated single pixel, medium contrast dots, where the algorithm is most likely to suppress.

Do I understand this correctly? That the European G9 has a 4K recording limit?

Too big. Not practical for my home and vacation videos.

If the price falls to $1200 mid next year then it'll be a great addition...

If you want to go Photo Pro and already have a collection of MFT glass, this makes full sense. If you are going video pro, for the same price, GH5 makes better sense. I guess the G80/85 still holds the crown for baby GH5.

Nukunukoo: That's great news. Now let's see how will they get their act on the next Karma Drone...

True. I am a GoPro user with the 3 an 4s (Black) and will get the 6 soon. I had the Karma but it literally crashed at me and will not get another till it has avoidance systems hardware, and not just software.

George Zip: Why is DP Review obsessed with DR? While it is important, it is the most overrated spec on this site.

When doing indoor natural light, for example, a dim room with only the window providing the light onto a bride as she opens the drapes makes DR performance critical, especially when you do hand-held (imagine running around even with just a monopod). Creating the subtle gradients from the dark surrounding foreground and highlights on the bride makes one appreciate DR. And that alone sells to clients! =)

(mic drop) and kudos to all those hardworking Wedding Photographers who spends late evenings doing edits! My hats off to y'all! =)

Sincerely,
The (old) Douche

PS. I plan to post my imperfect Wedding Photos in the gallery soon for you perfect people to pick apart! Cheers!

You did say you do wedding photography and I assume you are seasoned at it. So I suspect you don't really do ad hoc/impromptu shots during any event, especially those unexpected milestones. Most likely you are using many Auto-Something, coz I have never met, probably until you, who takes all the footages and see that all the ideal milestones and/or done near perfect. To you, hats off!

Sadly, for wedding photographers like me, the most of the work in our career has always been the post edits. While a good majority is generally spot on for the given footages, I spend quite a deal of time tweaking and styling many of the shots to make it look impeccable. I get paid suffering for those "root canal" edits when an odd one looks quite off but the scene is so powerful and memorable. I guess, my kind are the ones who suck coz we don't just use LR, but Photoshop as well. My deepest apologies.

You don't get the point. And I'm assuming you are a seasoned wedding photographer who does ad hoc/impromptus you'd get the idea. No one is perfect, and just because you rely on DR for many edits does not make you "suck at photography". This is a myth for many and to Vignes, there was no question asked. George simply stated that DPR overrates DR which is categorically false because DR and Noise come hand-in-hand in many comprehensive reviews.

"A stop or two" is not trivial. On a camera body, sensor importance is of paramount importance. Here DR and noise thresholds go hand in hand. So in fact, when you talk DR, you also talk noise. I also shoot weddings (49 at last count over the decade) and if you tell me that you had an impromptu/ad hoc wedding shot that is bad that you don't bother then you must be one of those rare Photographers who take all the needed and milestone shots always in proper settings and none of those "funky one" (for a pro editor, btw, there is no such thing) is never that important anyways when your client sees the lightbox thumbnails.

[Edit] sorry wrong wedding count. Make that 68. =)

Show me a pro photographer who ALWAYS do post edits and processing and I'll show you a person who takes DR very very VERY seriously. This fact increases by a magnitude if the photographer uses less artificial lighting on an event and outdoor shoots. If, however this "pro" claims DR is overrated, IMHO, this "pro" uses JPEG more than RAW on important takes.

Not trying to be offensive, but I noticed that Canon users are kinda sensitive to talks of DR and its importance.

The Fat Fish: I wish I was a Sony or Nikon user with cameras like this and the D850 coming out. Both companies are really pushing themselves. I really wish Canon could match these (and the D850) specs for the same money!

WB and Colour accuracy are easily fixed in post. Every pro who does this for a living always do post-edits anyways. Having said that, Focus Accuracy and DR are far more important as these are inherent to the hardware and cannot be fixed easily with software and in quite a number of cases, cannot be fixed at all. Canon still lags by a good margin on the DR side.

AngularJS: Still no 4k 60p...

Understandable since they have to use the entire sensor width. Theoretically, the A7RIII can do 60fps cropped.

In reply to:

Stigg: learn to focus by eye and there's no need for eye auto focus. the camera companies are enfeebling the photographer rather than enabling him with so much automation.

I don't care, it does not make me less of a photographer. I do weddings for over a decade now and if it helps me get useable photos during those important moments, my investment is worth it. Photographers who do a living taking events will appreciate that too.

As an operator, I have no problem with this as I have nothing shady to hide. It's inevitable since some idiot drone owners are so reckless and irresponsible they almost ruined it for us who follow common sense guidelines. Just last week, a drone did collide with a commercial airline, thank goodness no one was hurt.

$1299 without 4K? The excuse that not many use 4K these days is getting old... especially for the price point.

It's an obvious gimmick (with exaggerated hype) to cash in on the Yashica brand, plain and simple. Even the pricing is too much, so yes, you have defenders but they miss the entire point of the scam-like methods done to monetize it.
