scott_mcleod: I realize this is rather OT compared to the general tone of comments here, but it occurred to me that this device might prove useful for inspecting the inside of pipes, tanks and other structures with limited space (especially if you could fit a small light to it). But I doubt it will see such use.

tie a bit of string to it

As a English bloke living in Australia this area of the USA has always fascinated me and certainly a place I would love to travel too..your video was very insightful and showed what I have grown to belive what this area is all about...the young lady photographer was very thoughtful in her approach to the subjects and showed integrity in her for the camera used..for me that was secondary to the story but looks like it did a great job...DPR have raised the bar..very nice work indeed

In reply to:

fotodp: This looks and reads like sponsored content - which I realize it is. It would be useful to have an independent pros and cons article. The memory and hardware demands are obviously an issue which some will have to consider even if their camera has 4K.

i thought the article was very good. I must admit it opened my eyes to what 4k is all about

On article Sony rides wave of US Mirrorless sales surge (726 comments in total)

the major advantage to me for Mirrorless cameras is the WYSIWYG through the viewfinder ....this is a huge step up from a optical Oly EM1 allows me to exposure compensate on the fly and see in real time the effects..that alone is a very useful feature ...

razadaz: In recent years photography seems to have become more like Hi-Fi, where many people seem to have become more interested in the fidelity of the system they have than the music they listen to.

you hit the nail on the head mate true

sneakyracer: With larger sensor mirrorless cameras getting smaller and better, Olympus better up their game or their small sensor cameras will become a tough sell. The magic is in the lenses (also the AF and EVF).

true..but add a 80-400 nikkor to a D800 and crop at APSC size for 16 mp..its weighs in at 2.6 kilo..the olympus goes is 1.26 kilo...quite a difference in the field

a 600mm F5.6 lens would be a lot bigger than the 300mmF2.8 oly lens depicted here size is not relevant in this case ...overall system size needs to be considered

In reply to:

DouglasGottlieb: I like DPReview and have watched a few interviews from this series so far. None ask any tough questions -- lots of fluff.

For Olympus:

Whatever happened to the rumored "Trip D" fixed lens, 4/3 sensor, enthusiast compact?

What's happening with the Pen "rethink" you promised? How can it challenge the Panasonic GM1, GM5 and LX100? Users repeatedly ask for a Pen with integrated EVF. Why not do it? If a Pen body had EM1 ruggedization and performance, wouldn't enthusiasts and pros buy it? Why do you assume that centered EVF with a hump appeals to pros and smaller, boxy rangefinder style is for selfie shooters?

Where is 4K?

Where are fast, ultra wide primes?

Why not do f/1.2 or f/0.95?

Why not weather seal your primes to match the EM1 and EM5 bodies?

Is 16 megapixels the limit of M43?

I liked it mate might not be as hard hitting as some would like..but i get your point about the reps not being able to answer those more revealing questions so whats the point in being a agro interviewer and putting the bloke in a tough spot..well done mate and Id like to see more of this on the site

In reply to:

jagge: lol, who cares ?? this review is so desperately late that it is utterly meaningless. Every single cam site out there has made reviews I guess a year ago, its a cam widely used in productions.

Using energy on this is close to a joke. It just highlights the speed issue on this site. It seems to be very bad use of the time that so obviously is in short demand. Using the time on a current and newer release would make much more sense.

And dont get me wrong its a super relevant cam to review, but at this point in time its a waste of energy

not for me , as Ive only just started to look at this type of camera and the is the first GH4 review Ive read !
