damian5000: I knew these fools would sooner or later wake up to putting a touchscreen. My God. Incredible it took this long.

I hate touch screens so the previous versions lacking one is not an issue for me.

Demon Cleaner: "The RX10 IV is also dust and moisture resistant [xii]"
"[xii] Not guaranteed to be 100% dust and moisture proof."

In the UK manufacturers are not allowed to say "water proof", perhaps an EU directive.

Perhaps when the item is available to the public the price will be (slightly) lower.

From what I have heard so fat, I think this should be the RX10III.3

TillmanB: Five year ago my friend died of cancer. He and I grew up together and stayed close, he was brother to me. I drove him to the oncologist appointment. Afterwards, I knew he was in shock and the news must not be good. "Six months...a year with chemo" he said matter of fact. I knew my friend better than to believe he wasn't scared. Over the course of a couple years I watched as he initially tried every cure imaginable, I even suggested a few. Teas, diets, cleanses, herbs...chemo...it was all wasted. Eventually he came to terms with it. 30 years old and fated to die young. He lived longer than the initial prognosis, but knowing now what I know, I would have encouraged him to skip the chemo, to enjoy what life he had left with strength. I watched him go through the hell of chemo. Behind leaves he a wife, a life together she'll never have, a family that will forever be a dream. She will grow old loving the memory of a young man. I named my son after him, I miss him so.

Wye Photography: I am glad I live in the UK.

@Resom, I am British and pro European. I would much rather be within Europe than even think about closer ties with the US.

If there was a brexit referendom right now Brexit would not happen and, personally, I think the issue will be quietly swept under that perverbial table.

I think us British should also rid ourselves of that relic of a Monarchy.

British food is pretty good, my favourite is Sunday roast, Yorkshire pud, Christmas pud, Scones with clotted cream and strawberry preserve, Chicken Tikka Massala.

Franz's comment would have been funnier if it mentioned the weather, it's crap. Then again, Snowdonia, the Lake District and Scotland is outstandingly beautiful and dramatic and makes for superb photography.

In reply to:

englishfil: Problem. Country with lousy, lax gun laws that means deaths from firearms are on a par with those from road accidents (source :Small Arms Survey). With so many firearms in circulation the Police. sensibly, are armed. However, when frightened, challenged what tool will that Police officer reach for? If you only have a hammer every problem becomes a nail.
The solution: for Police - much better (stress) training, more 'less lethal' options, tougher staff selection, radical change in attitude; for US society - wake up and smell the coffee -the 'Wild West' ended 100 years ago - guns do not make you safer they make the USA a sad exception amongst civilised countries; for US Politicians - what counts more? the lives of people or that bung from the arms industry?

Not just that, the US has more gun death than some minor wars going on right now.

SkvLTD: Very nicely done! Did anyone who critiqued even try one of these shots, ever? They're very bloody difficult.

The little buggers move bloody fast! Kudos!

This is long overdue because we have had partially-automated photographers for some years.

On article Hands-on with the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III (209 comments in total)
In reply to:

cityofdust: I wonder why nobody else try to make a more Leica style design are there any rights of using a simple shape ?

First I was like oh pretty camera but than there are so many shapes in it for no real reason. Some round curves others sharp and the top part looks to big.

Sonya7 has a pretty design sadly the newest models are very bulky.
I hope next year some brand can make a FF Leica style camera which does not cost so much :)

"Sony a7 has a pretty design". I think it is fugly. Perhaps I'll grow to like it.

Of course you can do this any time, any place, any where.

In reply to:

Sean65: The 'hand-on photo' that illustrates these articles needs attention. It's starting to look a bit creepy. Yes, I know you're gently cradling a newborn camera at the same time signalling that this is a 'Hands-On' article but please....

Cheesy perhaps, Cliched yes, creepy no. Perhaps you can let DPR know.

I am probably "out" more than you, neither am I Christ. Please don't crucify me over that one because I am not being entirely serious.
