In reply to:

Carl Mucks: Panasonic cameras have long been known for their bleak colors and lifeless pictures, which impossible resuscitate even in Lightroom. This one is no exception. They really need to learn how to produce good colors and tonality from Olympus.

Compare your and my galleries. They spell opposite.

What I need to know about GFX 50S? Nothing.
This is the camera for people with special needs, not for me.

I could not believe my eyes - what the list of obsolete and obscure software it is.

OK, probably, I'm old and outdated, and in modern days all photos are taken by cellphones and processed by software designed exclusively for cellphone camera use.

EthanP99: I like it, nice and easy to setup and fairly priced.

It takes me 10-20 min to set up my strobes and background for a product shot, but thats a whole other thing.

Nice product.

I do not use strobes for products photography. I live in peace with 1/2 sec exposure - there is no reason to hurry up.
My primary concern with light is unwanted reflections

LOL! Another 43 camera!
.8 kilo body, and, I guess, at least .5 kilo lens.
Maybe it makes sense for studio work, but does it need GPS?

I have already invest in ON1 software and have no regrets.

s_grins: What about AF?

I'm willing to look. Looking at photos is my hobby. I do not have Instagram account, and I can't find photos on website related to your account

You think you do. The only your available photo does not support your claim.

For a compact camera combination of 1" sensor and 50-250 ZOOM is a wonder.

To Zeisschen: do you really do photography, Sir?

To T3: your note about tunnel vision is legit. In order to avoid tunnel vision, do not press the camera to the eye - keep a small clearance, which not only eliminates tunnel, but also reduces eye strain and allows you to imporve composition.
Cheers

In reply to:

repdetect: G5X gets my vote for ugliest camera released in a decade.

I love to drive ugly cars and shoot ugly cameras.
BTW, this camera is almost my perfect choice for second camera because of size, EVF, articulating LCD. Just a little more of ZOOM range (5-6) with the same F-stops, and I'm sold.

In reply to:

Alec: Quite strange images of Energia ( "Energiya M space rocket, Kazahstan 2015" and related ), considering that the Soviets have assembled these vehicles horizontally and moved them to the launch pad the same way. The practice started with the Semyorka and never changed with Leninsk (N1 moon rocket), and hence Energia which used the moon assy building / mover / pad other infrastructure.

The strap-on boosters also look too long and lack the complex shapes of those seen in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvNALouyQaI and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energia , http://pargoo.customer.netspace.net.au/bbur88.jpg

In reply to:

marc petzold: Very good pictures, i am amazed! And also way cool: Mirebs is still using the old G1 Lumix Panasonic, together with the 14-45 OIS it's a great combo - ppl don't need the latest crap for taking nice photographs. The Lens was & is still very good, check out the G1 dpreview here from 2008 - that was the reason while i've bought it, into early 2009, too. It fits nice into my backback when i am riding my mountainbike, also a small tripod, too.

I think it is a stitch

In reply to:

Photato: Almost certain the GX8 uses the Sony IMX269 sensor.

Well, I shoot RAW.
Also, my camera has Panasonic sensor that makes a photos far superior to those that I've found in your gallery.
All these talks SONY that makes the best in the world sensor do not resonate with me.
About CPUs - AMD makes great CPUs for decades too.
