The sample files look terrible. Save your money and buy a 90's digital camera from Goodwill.

The most amazing thing is how relevant the GX8 still is. If it were released for the first time today it would comfortably sit near the top of mirrorless offerings.

I'm sure it's half marketing gimmick and half Soderbergh trying something new to see how it changes his artistic vision. The takeaway is that the consumer camcorder is likely dead. If you could find a way to do an extended battery and external recording to hard drive as you shoot this would be something for sure.

Only saw a sideways swing intended to knock the camera out of her hands. Don't get me wrong, still a totally DB thing to do, but it isn't like he was maliciously trying to hurt her.
Rather over-sensationalizing the thing, but I guess that's what we get when we rely on blogs and self-reporting for news.

I"m no expert but I do have more than 2 decades of combat martial arts training and I can say with certainty that a light kick with a shoe to the face can have severe consequences. Even more so if there is a camera between the shoe and the face. It does not surprise me that what looks on the surface like a light tap could send someone to the ER. I've seen it many times.

dalen: I’ve been kicked square in the face full force by stilettos while shooting a concert that had dancers on the bar above me. I held onto my camera and kept shooting. Sure I had huge cut and fat lip, but I certainly didn’t need the er nor did I cry about it. I think it was quite intentional. I laughed about it. This one was ompossibke to tell if it was intentional, and it oooked more like a swipe and not a kick. His explanation makes sense. She’s looking for a payday.

That's different!

I tell you what. Bring your camera over and I'll give you one of those light swipes with my foot and we'll see how much you are ready to man up and let it go. Victim blaming us horrendous.

Paul_B Midlands UK: I watched the video closely to me that guy kind of flicked his leg out he had no weight behind that it was not like the infamous Eric Cantona kung fu kick let's be clear. My guess was he was just trying to be cool and kind of just clip her in fact probably he hit her too hard but there was no malicious intent in that he did not intend to physically hurt her otherwise he could have they done it a lot more effectively stupid bloke bit of a mistake let's get over it.

intent is not relevant. His actions were reckless.

Are you saying that she should just shut her mouth and accept a kick in the face? It is obvious that he intended to kick her. It wasn't his first time doing this either. She has every right to complain and should be compensated for her deliberate injury.

That looks almost as cool as my motorola razer.

Simmer down boys. It's just camera lenses.

I am also jumping ship. I've never owned anything but a Mac since the 90's. Microsoft is on a roll and seems to understand the needs of creative professionals better than Apple. Never thought I'd say that. This product is brilliant and transforms the way you work with pixels. My MacBook air is going up on eBay and the Surface Book will replace it soon. Wish I had the budget for the Surface Studio because I'd get one in a heartbeat.

Differences between this and the PL7- It looks different and...? No reason to buy this. Get the PL7 for cheaper and you have pretty much the exact same camera.

cprevost: I love my E- PL7. I don't see anything here that looks like an upgrade? Besides making it a bit more ugly what's the difference?

I see. Looks like the upgrade gets you a nicer camera strap and a few menu items. This makes the P-L7 a great buy.

Donnie G: The next time that you happen to be on a university's campus or at a college sporting event, check out all of those XC10 camcorders that have been issued to the student journalists and film makers there. Lots! And yes, I was surprised too. :))

I have the xc-10 and use it for student led field interview work. Works great for that purpose. It's a great tool for teaching students basics of video production.

This will never happen as it would not increase sales and would lead to many people flocking to android. There is no upside to this for iPhone owners so why would Apple implement it?

In reply to:

peeyaj: And where is RAW support in XC10?

XC10 is a video camera that also happens to shoot stills. Not sure why they even included still shooting as it's mediocre at best. I don't think raw support would have helped much. If you need raw for good images you might as well bring along a real stills camera. This one isn't going to cut it. It's a nice video camera though. Just not one you'd want to rely on for still images.
