Yes bad skin tones here. I guess he had dynamic range optimization on....

Its amazing. Sony put nearly everything in.
I only found two missing things:
The play memories apps and different aspect ratios.

I was surprised that seversl sample photos were taken with appertures above f8, so that defraction will affect the image. Why did you choose these appertures?
I guess the kitlens will be sharpest around f 4 to f 5.6

On article Fujifilm X-H1 Review (1469 comments in total)

As a micro four thirds shooter there were always two things preventing me from switching over to Fuji
1.) Ibis
2.) compact pancake zoom
Bravo Fuji, they made it now!
When Ibis will come to a rangefinder styled fuji body like the Xe3 or A3 with tilting screen I am going to switch.

Dostoy: This camera might be called a GX9, but it is actually a 20 megapixel GX95.
I can only assume that, by calling it a GX9, Panasonic is saying: "There will be no true successor to the GX8."
And that is disappointing!

The GX8 was kind of a wrong naming. The GX9 is a perfect successor to the legendary GX7. Bravo Panasonic ! It is exactly the camera I am waiting for. Now my EP5 just have to die before I will order a GX9...
The Gx8 fans will be disapointed, whereas the Gx7 and Gx85 fans are very happy with this announcement.

Olympus could easily own the vlogging and blogging camera space with this recipie: 4k, 5-axis IBIS ( also in video), 180 display, stylish bodydesign and mic input at a price of 550$. Their old 16mpix sensor is good enough for the web. Its sad to see how Olympus wastes it (last) chances....

First of, I like the design, it looks beautiful and worthy.
But where has the acessory port gone? Olympus seems to think that women dont want an EVF option because it messes up their makeup.
Its disapointing that the E-Pl9 has no 5-axis IBIS as well. That could have been a winner point.
If you don't need 4K buy the Epl7 or Epl8 and a used VF3.

Earlybird29: The bodies of the Olympus and Panasonic “pro” cameras are now so big together with their pro lenses that I’ve finally decided to ditch my Olympus EM1 MK II and pre-order the new Sony A7R III to get the FF advantage of much higher image quality. After spending the last 5 years with M4/3 and being constantly disappointed with the IQ even from their pro lenses I’m done with it. I also have the FF Leica Q and the different in IQ between M4/3 and FF is like night and day. My gear is going up on eBay and I won’t have any regrets. Sorry folks.

When you unbox your new Sony camera you will realize that it even hasn't 1:1 aspect ratio. Your GAS will never be satisfied with new camera systems.

I think it will only work for objects in short range. The infrared light pattern send out by the phone will not be strong enough to reach objects more far away.
Will it be possible to create out of focus bokeh?

Thanks for this very interesting article!
One advantage that you didn't mention is that when the camera dies the lens can live on. My loved Sony Rx100 just died and the whole thing is gone...

In reply to:

nerd2: "The optical design is said to minimize vignetting"

"bokeh produced by the FE 100mm F2.8 STF OSS GM, which it says is improved by the use of an apodization (APD) element"

"An apodisation element is simply a radial neutral density filter (that gets darker towards the edges) "

????

Probably a typo, they mean darker towards the center

kewlguy: A perfect travel camera with 18-55 and an extra battery.

I wish fuji would offer a pancake zoom like the panasonic 12-32 or the sony 16-50. If they add that and a proper HDR bracketing I will switch.

What firmware updates do I need in order to have the optimal AF speed? Just the latest body firmware or also a lens firmware?
I have the A7 with body firmware 3.1.

Applaus to Nikon for both the 18-50 and the 24-85.
This may be the successor to my RX100 mk1.
What I miss is a dial for changing apperture, like f.e. LX7.
The dial on the back is awkward to reach.

108: Sometimes when I see those 1" cameras like this Canon or the Sony's RX100's I just feel like buying one , put it in a belt pouch always available for good quality snapshots during the day, sell all my M4/3 stuff , and buy FF for serious low light photography , and that's it .

I think exactly the same.
The RX100 is so close to MFT in image quality and compactness that you need a FF to notice a big step up.

An "Oh Wow" headline would be OK if it were something revolutionary and groundbreaking, like the Sony A7, RX100 etc.

maxnimo: This camera is a great idea, but since I will never in all eternity ever get an iPhone I will never in all eternity ever get this camera.

the "two" will be more compatible. I wish it would be possible to change the connection plug.
The idea is brilliant. Imagine if you could have something like a mft 25mm 1.8 in this form factor.

Link | Posted on Jun 20, 2015 at 19:35 UTC

I would rather prefer a lens that goes to 100mm like in the mark I and G7X.
4K is completely uninteresting to me. I dont have the hardware to handle, archive and view such big film files.

I am really impressed - what a good balanced cameara. Go Leica !
Although I have to onestly admit that I will never ever bye one for this price.

The 50mm crop mode will give only 12MP, right?
