Regarding the overall winner...That's usually the way a great photo comes about (for me anyway)...something just happens in front of you or you stumble upon a scene and take a shot and there it is.

They make a smaller version for micro four thirds too. Anyone ever use this one yet with a Panasonic? Godox Mini Camera Flash TT350o http://www.godox.com/EN/Products_Mini_Camera_Flash_TT350o.html

D200_4me: For still photography, I think the GH5 doesn't get enough credit. If you believe the DXO ratings, only a few Canon APS-C and FF cameras are ahead of it in dynamic range and the body on the GH5 is just a joy to hold and use. I've only had one for about two weeks now and I'm in love. If I may be shameless and share my own two week old GH5 gallery here...here it is: http://www.thephotographyhobbyist.com/CAMERAGEAR/Panasonic-GH5-Gallery/ Having said that, if I was NOT interested in mirrorless ILC, the D500 would definitely be the APS-C camera I'd buy.

@Rodemo Thanks :-)

@Mike FL I believe I read somewhere that the GH5 does use a Sony sensor. I don't know for sure though. I think it was the 43 rumors site where I read that. I haven't seen any info that posts details about exactly who makes the sensor...so maybe it's just speculation or an assumption.

Thanks. That's more like it.

Wow. I'd love to see it some day, but that's pricey. We'll see. Maybe after I retire if all goes well.

Eric Hensel: I only came here for the condescension

If someone is being condescending to start off with when no one has said a word to invite the insults, I think it's fair to come back with with that. I don't bother anyone and I think everyone else should do the same. Don't insult and mock people and maybe people won't come back with their own when they voice their displeasure. This is not a disagreement like how you should use AF, etc...someone just chimes in and throws out some blanket insults for no apparent reason...probably because they think too much of themselves.

Eric Hensel: I only came here for the condescension

@Roland Karlsson - Understood, but my point is that if someone is going to mock other people for the type of photos they like to shoot as if what those people like to shoot is amateurish and not worthy, then they need to be sure to show us THEIR masterpieces/works of art so we can see how a 'true' pro gets it done. Otherwise, I have no interest in taking insults from some random mor@n on the internet I'll never meet. Now, if Joe McNally wants to chime in and critique my work, that's great. I'll listen :-)

I've seen way too many photos like this on social media. For the first several you see it's pretty cool. But after awhile, you get sick of seeing it. No burning steel wool will be swung around in front of my camera. I've seen too much of it already :-)

My favorite is how people make comments that disparage a large amount of people they've never met and they don't even have the courtesy to share a link to their images so we can determine if we should take them seriously/ask them for advice to improve ourselves since they're so much better than everyone else....or if we should ignore them because they're full of cr@p.

In reply to:

D200_4me: You definitely need the right scene for black and white (for it to look great).

Yes, that too. Good scene and good light makes a great B&W. It's easier to make the viewer focus on specific areas of a photo with a nice B&W. I love color mostly, but sometimes color can get in the way.

On article Sony a9: Why being better might not be enough (766 comments in total)

I imagine organizations and professional photographers that need pro sports/fast action cameras are less likely to switch anytime REALLY soon. Those would be the customers that have the most invested in lenses, etc that support the cameras they're already using. It's the photography enthusiasts/gear lovers that would be most likely to switch (which frankly is the vast majority of the active forum users here). I seriously doubt most of the pros are hanging out in the gear discussion forums. They're out making a living and don't have time for all the nit-picking, whining and insults from many of the rude forum members. Not all are rude of course, but way too many are and I'm pretty sick of it. You make a gear related comment that is not directed at a person and the next thing you know you're getting bad-mouthed for daring to have a different opinion/thought about gear.

scoobysnapstories: wish my everyday paying job is photography. =) but day job is needed.

I don't. I would grow to hate photography if I was forced to produce what someone else wanted all the time. Unless....I was allowed to just go shoot whatever I want and they still pay me for it, ok :-)
