  • ...and I didn't buy 51 of them. This fact does not diminish my regard for the system.
  • If viewed as an updated a6300, then this is a fantastic camera.

    It has better AF, a flip screen, a touch screen, bluetooth connectivity, USB charging and timelapse recording..... all for a list...

  • ..... and most humans on earth are Asians, so why don't we call all humans Asians? See the fallacy of your logic? The only reason we add the modifier "digital" to the word camera is to set it apart ...
  • Peter, with mutual respect, I think we just see this differently.

    Yes, the police are capable of abusing their powers. Every large group has some bad apples in it. But the remedy for that is to...

  • If this is an "unwarranted invasion of privacy" then every other security camera and traffic camera is one too. Remember, these cameras are recording events in public places, and not in your...

  • Replied in My nominees
    There really has never been a really bad M4/3 camera. All of them are pretty good, but some have been less successful for various reasons.  So consider my nominees as "cameras that should never ...
  • Rather then spending $125 for this piece of junk, you might be better off going to ebay and buying a Yashica Electro 35, Minolta HiMatic 7, or Canonet 17 for around $20.

    There is no better "retro...

  • Replied in I doubt it
    Yes, they do. Which means they can develop their own full frame sensors too, And those sensors might be just as good (or perhaps even better) than the ones made by Sony. I only mentioned the sensor ...
  • Replied in I doubt it
    I cannot imagine why you would assume that Panasonic cannot build a FF MILC camera AT LEAST as good as a Sony FE camera. If the problem is "they also build rice cookers and toaster ovens" then let ...
  • Replied in I wonder....
    I wonder why no one predicted the demise of Fuji X APSC when Fuji created Fuji G cameras and lenses for medium format? There is a similar size difference between: (1) Panasonic FF has around twice the ...
  • FF and APSC use same lens mount (1) Canon EF-s/EF (2) Leica TL/SL (3) Nikon DX/FX (4) Sigma SA (5) Pentax K (6) Sony Alpha (7) Sony E/FE ...
  • However..... if you take Olympus at it's word, then the profitability of the medical division is inseparably linked to technology they derive from making cameras. I have no way of knowing if this ...
  • Well..... it shouldn't be that hard to update. Lets assume the EM1X is a monster camera. weighing in at over 1,000 grams. Here is what will have changed since 2017 when I made the first comparison: (1) ...
  • The votes really aren't that close, making this whole thing suspect. That "5% ahead" stuff is actually pretty misleading.

    If 1498 votes were cast, and the Sony got 24.3% and the Fuji got 19.5%.......

  • This is like the 2000 election all over again!

    Your favorite candidate lost, so you want to keep voting until he wins!

    Perhaps the Supreme Court can step in and end this madness?

  • I wish I never read this article.

    I don't need one, but now I want one.

  • If you ever get to NYC, then the B&H store is a must see destination.

    B&H got where they are by offering huge selection, fair pricing, and a high level of professional service. This was in stark...

  • Yes, we agree completely. My point was that a camera can never be better than a phone... for the needs of the smartphone user . Because their highest priority is convenience and not any of the very ...
  • Replied in The sad reality
    Absolutely true. But it is hard to sell the advantages of a camera to smartphone users, since they really don't want those advantages. All they seem to want is mostly selfies and snapshots. So the ...
  • Names for things have a funny way of changing, after something exceptional becomes something very common and ordinary. We always add adjectives to denote something new, then drop the adjective ...
