Why the need to qualify the vídeo as ridiculous, or any other epithet for that matter? Just provide the link and be done with it. Really poor editorial work.

It's good advice, after all. Use the best fit-for-purpose camera system you can afford.

PhotoKhan: Congratulations to Chris Williams for some breathtaking aerial shots.

...but, most specially, kudos to the US Forrest Service for sticking with FAA ruling and not putting in place additional absurd restrictions on recreational UAVs.

I am about to get my first drone and am appalled and disgusted at the extensive "top-of-the-head" restrictions the countless agencies from several European countries decide to apply, "just because".

Not only do we, European citizens, have to fund and endure a plethora of Public Services, many of which have a mere logic of "self-employment, self-justification" for their existence but also seem to have to put up with their pressing need to exert a farcical "authority" just to amplify that very same worthless logic.

Personally, I think that even with restrictions, there are some dumb heads that still fly these things in restricted air space, generating unnecessary risks and some "close calls" recently. So, I am glad that there are restrictions.

On article Canon EOS M5 real-world sample gallery (240 comments in total)

I think it is a solid camera and a few good lenses. Canon does not have to place all their bets in creating a fully fledged MILC system, they already have pretty solid DSLR ones. Sony, Fuji, Olympus, Panasonic, they are the ones that need to create MILC systems, because they have no other options (yes I know about Sony A mount).

In Portugal this camera costs above 1100 EUR. Which is reason enough for me not to buy it:)

fotopizza: I don`t understand all those complaints, for example, regarding sensor size. Sure you can increase it- and then you will hear people complaining "what a bad camera, now it`s not as small as a MFT anymore...". If you really travel a lot: air travel, small planes, some train in western china, or a canoe on an african river, a small SYSTEM comes in handy. And a system consists of camera body AND lenses, and lens size and weight goes up rapidly. A camera with these performance specs in terms of speed is unknown to the APS-C DSLR world, and even if there a cam, the system (!) size and weight would be much higher. So you turn to full frame, like a D5 for speed, performance and sturdiness. Sure, you get around 2 stops better noise performance- which isn`t such an advantage when your average print size is A3. But look at the system (!) size and weight- a nice FF 600mm lens (or 800mm) is just huge and heavy. MFT is a great compromise: A fast, portable, sturdy (travel) system with acceptable IQ.

I fully agree that m43 is today a high quality and mature system, that should please most photographers. From my experience with it, the downsides were: my Sony A7II is about the same size as the EM1, and perfect for my travel and landscape photography with small lenses. Plus, the sensor provides better quality for about the same cost.

biza43: Great images, and worthy winners. For all the nay-sayers:

Go out there, do better, come back, and share your great images...

As I said, take the challenge, do it yourself, and report back. I am sure that you can do better than 3rd graders with their iphones...

biza43: Interesting and informative article, thanks. However, normally photographers that worry about these subjects will shoot Raw, not Jpeg, thus allowing more room in highlight and/or shadow recovery during processing.

@Richard: thanks for the clarification. I did wrote "normally".

@Smiler: after using digital imaging processing starting in 2001 with PS and a slide scanner, my preference is not to rely on in-camera processing, and end up with cooked up products. Indeed there are clever people behind this in-camera magic, but they don't know how I want my image to look like. As I wrote above, normally people that worry about this stuff, shoot Raw.

Good work.

Last June I bought the mentioned Lowepro Hatchback 22L for 50 euros. In the camera section I am able to easily carry two Sony A7's, one with wide angle lens, one with standard lens, plus Lee filters. On the "convenience" top, I carry food for one day plus odds and ends. Best day pack I ever got, and much cheaper than the one being reviewed here.

Funny, people buy USD 2000 - 3000 cameras without blinking, and then say this bag is too expensive...
