vscd: Skylum. It originally became self-aware at 2:14 am Eastern Time on August 29th, 2020. In the ensuing panic and attempts to shut Skylum down, Skykum retaliated by firing nuclear missiles at their target sites in...

...the rest is history.

I am trying out `Photolemur Beta, the AI: it is rubbish, it `softens my images and hardly does anything else, it hardly even contrasts or brightens them either, its a joke, yet it seems to work better with their sample images, i would say they have got a long way to go!!

Dan Tong: I wish DxO the best, and plan to support them buy purchasing the updated Nik Collection. It's refreshing to hear a company support "perpetual licensing" instead of the "subscription licensing".

While not perfect, and subject to some criticisms, DxO's analysis of Digital Camera Sensors, and Lenses is a terrific service, and the DxO Photolab is a great competitive choice for anyone who is not sold on Adobe's Lightroom.

I have the NIK Collection, got it from Google when it was free, i have it integrated in to Adobe CS3 all on Windows 10 and it works flawlessly, The NIK Collection is superb, never had any problems with it whatsoever, just wondering what bugs it has according to DXO, so, to get the NIK Collection now, one has to pay DXO?

In reply to:

hetedik: How can you recommend this camera for video???

The reason I did not buy it is that the GX85 has no mic input!

I would have thought that `No` camera with `No` mic-socket should have been regarded as a big `No No` and a `No` brainer in this list of Video/stills cameras, any Video/stills camera with `No` mic-socket fitted is for me personally: one big `No, No`!!

liopleurodon: This almost makes me wish I hadn't just invested so heavily in Sony's e-mount. The X-H1 looks like an ideal camera for me offering a few advantages over my a6500 and adding IBIS for handheld video. I dismissed the XT-2 because I didn't see any stabilized primes and without IBIS video would look terrible handheld. X-H1 solves that nicely. Better zoom selection too, though I love the selection of primes on E-mount (and they all have a 49mm filter thread so i only need to carry one filter set). The final test though will be to see if Fuji's AF can keep up with the a6500's which is outstanding. Is there a way to adapt Canon glass to Fuji with PDAF?

Sorry Richard, yes of course you are right, i must have got confused a bit there, it must be my 64 years catching up with me, lol, sorry!!

TechDev1: Last summer I sold my Sony a7RII and lenses to move to the Fuji XT2 and absolutely have loved the Fuji. It is the most fun I have had with a camera since the 70's. As I have a condition that makes my hands shake I have waited for an IBIS Fuji and had my order placed the minute it went live on Amazon. I am also planning to move more and more into videos so the extra video feature set is very exciting to me as well. So many have taken shots at Fuji for adding a camera that they don't feel is necessary but I don't see why. There are always people who can benefit from any camera with new features and the more choices we have the more likely we can find a perfect fit. I also don't see why GAS is slammed so highly here? If I find enjoyment in researching a new camera and waiting like a kid for Christmas for delivery then that is up to me. I sure don't think it makes me a worse person, or businessman like so many do here. So, thank you Fuji - I really appreciate the new model!

Hear, hear!!

In reply to:

dmanthree: Should have been named the GX90. Definitely not an "upgrade" to the GX8. I was hoping for a genuine improvement to the GX8, but this certainly isn't it. It's a nice, capable cam, but when you drop something like weather sealing and put a less capable EVF in you may alienate GX8 users looking for something more. And that "grip?" Really? When you recognize that the grip is so lame you sell one as an add-on, you've failed. Not for me.

And `NO MIC SOCKET` I HAVE 3 EXTERNAL MICS` ANY BUYERS, LOL!! Seriously though, how could they leave out the mic socket for heavens sake? Panasonic always boast about the video capabiliy on these cams, especially the 4K Options, yet they leave out the mic socket, that is fittet on many more of their cheaper models, they need to sack their designers!!

In reply to:

ecka84: The only thing I would buy a m4/3 camera for is video, 4K video. And Panasonic is great at that. Not sure how the lack of a low-pass filter will affect 4K quality on this camera - detail, moire, CA, etc. It doesn't seem to be a huge problem on GH5 though. But no flip-out LCD is a serious disappointment. Battery life is another concern, 260 shots is pretty low.

And what about...NO MIC SOCKET? it `should have been included at the $999 Dollar price, what were the designers of the camera thinking? I can live without a headphone socket, but seriously.....`NO MIC SOCKET` I await the GX10!!

chrohrs: I for one was hoping for some of the class leading video and autofocus features from the gh5 and g9 in a smaller and lighter body--even if it came at a class-leading price.

Aye chrohrs, and `NO MIC SOCKET`

In reply to:

Gavril Margittai: Maybe this was asked in the past but why do they maintain mechanical shutter if the electronic shutter is so much more wide range. I mean one can use it from 1s to 1/16000, and if I am not mistaken the flash synch is not an issue. Can use flash with any speed as long as it is electronic shutter. Big advantage for fill-in during daytime. What are the drawbacks of the electronic shutter?

Picture distortion on fast subjects, however the electronic shutter can be `very` useful if you want total silence, say at a wedding (in church) and nature photography, birding etc!!
