Are people still slogging off this wonderful piece of modern 21st century technology.
The Nikon standard compact in 1999 only had 3.2mp and a 1.8inch lcd screen.

What an unfair miserable lot we have here.
This is a great point and shoot.
I remember buying a state of the art Olympus in 2005 with a 3x optical zoom. Showerproof, 2.5 inch 215k screen. And it cost twice as much as.
So it's only 14 years out of date.

Halina123: 20MP sensor! How prehistoric!

You need 120MP to persuade smartphone users to upgrade to a real camera.

Billions of smartphone users and me.
See the news section on the latest Samsung 108MP. Sensor.

Now we need a lens with optical quality to take advantage of the resolution.

Imager of: An excellent upgrade for the FZ series. Well done Panasonic. A quick question, what did you actually upgrade? 🥴

Rich Evans: I am going to repeat here what I said before: who in their right mind will spend 1000 bucks for this camera?

Lets start with the basics: it doesnt reach the IQ of an APS-C camera, its not as portable as a 1 inch sensor and it is priced way too high while being mostly the same as previous model. Heck, buy a FF for same price. Same lens, same ISO performance, same small sensor, same number of focus points, same small battery, same screen size, same fps. This is not an update, it is barely a spec increment.

The market is moving up in pricing but there is still a segment that could use a camera like this but for 60% of the price. A price bump for the same camera they released last time? Why?

The Micro Four Thurd fans should really take a good look at why this camera has been so criticised. There is nothing here that is not done better, cheaper, smaller in other bodies but Panasonic keeps getting away with it. Like with GX9.

This camera at this price does not make any sense.

A camera is worth as much as people are willing to pay for it.
And Panasonic are a business not a charity.

RIP Nikon 1.
I almost cried myself to sleep.

Sad to see them go.
I almost bought a Casio back in 2004 when they had 2.5" screens when the competition was still 1.5" and 1.8".
But playing about with the Casio in the shop put me off.
Camera looked very nice and slim. But overpriced and LCD very grainy and low resolution.

Halina123: Could this camera phone be the final nail in the DSLR coffin?
The DSLR only being bought/used by professionals and very enthusiastic amateurs.

Casual users !
Who bought DSLRs because they thought a proper camera would give them better snaps.
Now they will be happy to stick with phones.

I downloaded a few full size images from the gallery and they are poor, soft and all lack bite.
Is this a poor copy or are the samples intentionally below smartphone standards.
My Sony HX50, with tiny sensor and 30X zoom gives sharper images with more details.

photonius: Reminds me of the mythical "640K ought to be enough for anybody" quote. There will be never enough. Soon 8K video....

I still remember the 64k is enough.

Heikki Piirainen: “18:9 aspect ratio”? What’s wrong with saying 2:1?

18:9 is the new buzz word for mobile phone aspect ratios.
It has to be 18:9. Or it won't sell!!!!

Incredible, rumours were true. Unlike the Nikon, rumours of a V4, then new generation of large sensor mirrorless being imminent.
Only worth the price of the lens is very sharp and focus very fast and accurate.
Otherwise get an entry level DSLR.

breschdlingsgsaelz: Sad to see that Throwback Thursday gets neglected like this. It started really good with nice stories about cameras that were landmarks at their time and some talk about how it got used and why this was not possible before.

Then some random camera was picked with only a small paragraph with a link to an old review, last week it was completely missed and now it sports a relatively recent smart phone.

Why was the Nexus one even picked? It was not the first smart phone, it was not the first Android phone, not the first google phone (that would be the HTC Dream) and it did not even have a particularly good camera, not even for a smartphone.

For a mobile phone in a camera site "throwback" I would have expected the Sony Ericsson W800i/K800i - those where the first mobile phones with a usable Camera.

Well, now this posting got more of a rant then I intended to. Sorry, but please dear dpreview team, put some more effort in this "history" section, we really like it!

The Nexus one came out in Jan 2010.
The galaxy S and the droids followed in the summer.

Before the Nexus one, android phones were a niche product. This phone made android mainstream and the rest is history.

In reply to:

Halina123: The images looked fantastic when I downloaded them onto my smartphone.
But when I transferred them to a proper computer and pixel peeped. Oh dear. I'm sure a decent smartphone camera can thrash them.

I'm pretty certain the problem is with the specific lens being used for these images.
The outdoor scenes being shot in good daylight are substandard.
I compared them to my forest scenes taken with a small sensor Olympus XZ-2, by upsizing my 12MP images to the Fuji's 16MP. My images were better, sharper with more details.
However I'm guessing that with better glass and in more challenging conditions, the fuji with it's larger sensor will deliver better results.
