I think emulating negative films is nonsense. It always depended more on the printing lab than on the type of film how the images looked like. The differences in color where huge when I ordered prints in different labs, with identical negatives!

- grip
- made in Japan
- one more dial

IS IT POSSIBLE???

24-105 needs another update! I'm perfectly happy with my 70-200 f/4 IS.

deep7: A big thumbs up to Panasonic for chucking in a viewfinder. I absolutely hate using cameras without them.

I totally agree - but I also hate cameras without RAW format.

the 14mm Yongnuo lens with this awkward adaptor is bigger and heavier than a mFT camera with appropriate lens! Silly.

BobT3218: While they are at it, how about making it easier to take portrait shots, I don't know, rotate the sensor 90° perhaps. You may not have noticed it but the world is going vertical. According David Pogue's article "Video Disorientation" in the March issue of Scientific American, 72% of millennials take their smatphone pics and videos vertically. I do it and I'm sure you do it as well. Sure one can hold the phone horizontally but that takes two hands, few do it. The media industry has noticed.

by the way: what about watching motion pictures in a cinema? All wrong orientated? Certainly I will not show my videos in a cinema, but otherwise not only on mobile divices.

TV screens and PC monitors are horizonzal, usually. I hate vertical smartphone videos on these screens. I never shoot vertical videos. But I would appreciate digital projectors with square panels.

Team Yeti: Obviously the Creative Cloud is helping them rake in the cash. And good for Adobe and their shareholders -- they are running a business, after all. That's capitalism at work.

You know what else is capitalism at work? Me voting with my wallet not to pay for their subscription-based products. Bring back standalone software please.

"What motivation could they have to bring back standalone software?"

...to sell software to people like me, who bought upgrades when I found them worth buying. I don't use Adobe's cloud for storage.

As far as I can say, the lens seems to be better than that of the predecessor, I exspected the opposite.

Edmond Leung: For professional market, mirrorless is meaningless. For general consumer market, mirrorless can be a complementary product to smartphones.

For me, a "general consumer", a mirrorless system has become more than a supplement to my Canon dslr system. I seldom use the Canon any more!

I'm not sure whether a thief will open a camera bag that he is going to steal and will try if he can switch on the camera or not.

PLShutterbug: I have always thought it weird that, to give someone with whom I am having a video conversation an equivalent experience of being face to face I have to look at the top of my screen, but that means I can’t see that person myself because I am looking at the top of the screen.

If I look instead at the person’s Image on screen they are invariably looking at my image as well, which means they appear to be looking off to the side or with downcast eyes.

It is a strange way to have a conversation.

Having the camera in the center of the screen will enable more natural conversations- provided our images are also both centered on the screen on the other’s phone.

I tried both camera positions. It looks more natural when the camera is on top of the screen I'm looking at. When the camera is beneath the screen it is more obvious that the eyes look in a different direction.

HRC2016: It's not a map. It's a list of logos.
Calling this a map is like calling a list of cities a map.

very outdated. For instance: Konica and Minolta are listed separately as camera manufacturers. Look on the konicaminolta website. No cameras for years now.

Choose 2 images and press C to compare them side by side, click on one to enlarge them both. Good for choosing the better/sharper one.

fantastic images, but in my opinion camera movement all the time is not necessary, if not disturbing.

In reply to:

NYCman530: I checked out the compare mode graph under conclusion and compared it to the Canon G5X and even though the G5X has a one inch sensor, it received a better low light rating due to the slow lens of the G1X lll. Had it been f1.8-4.0, that would have been a significant difference.

you have to set ISO value 4 times higher to compensate the 2 stops slower lens. So the ISO advantage has vanished.

They want to sell us this expensive model, and that is why Canon did not improve the G5X in terms of speed as they did with the near-identical G7X MARK II (that lacks a viewfinder).
