Abdallah II: yes the world also needs a professional areal photographer to bring us a photo of a bomber plane because a photo of a fighter pilot who pulls a trigger and drop a bomb in a residential area that kills 100s of innocent people even more powerful then this brave photographers photo of killing a civilian, like WW2 atomic bomber dropping on Japan. i wonder how far humans will reach away from humanity......?

Abdallah,
Saddam Hussain's brother, popularly called 'Chemical Ali' poured chemicals that burned and killed 4,000 villagers in northern Iraq. That was two decades back. Just two weeks back, 1000 muslims joined burnt 70 Hindu owned businesses after looting in West Bengal, India. There will be no photos of these things, because not all killers will allow photographers.

JordanAT: On paper, as a still camera, this looks like a rebadge and a price bump. Similar lens (range, aperture), same sensor, same size, same battery life, same sensitivity, frame rate, and shutter speed range, and a bit heaver. So, for still photogs, they're adding a touchscreen for $400?

Actually aperture is a little bit less. Meaning need of one step higher iso/higher noise and loss of bokeh that cannot be compensated.

PKDanny: Why $1,200???

There may be lot of buyers, who feel not comfortable to buy something when newer version is available. They may think "for JUST $400 why not go for newer version?" . This camera, while adding ND filter, touch screen, 20% longer range is still not worth the price increase. But people will shed that extra money, since some of them cannot sleep when they feel they could have got a superior one.

disasterpiece: Seriously, Apple, how hard would've been to keep the F row and place the display thingy above it? I'm not buying this stuff anyway, I'm just baffled.

Then don't buy it.

the F row is replaced by 'soft controls'. The idea is programmers like me type thousands of key strokes. But we use the F-row about a dozen times only, so, it can be replaced with more accomadating, more funcions.

I could not find sensor size any where. The features did not list what are the ranges for S/A/M or abilities like time lapse.
However this Kodak Ektra or Panasonic CM1 is better than iphone 7, which is thin, but you need to bulk it up. Otherwise can break from 5 ft drop into hard floor, will break from 5 ft drop into concrete floor; These cameras will allow you to edit photos you take, but iphone will not allow you to edit your photos from memory card.

xlabsmedan: I own FZ5 in 2005 and work well until now. Rubber, lens, batt are good and no problem. Very satisfied with panasonic product.

Sure, this FZ2000 is good choice in < $1200

I own FZ20 that worked stronger than FZ150 that came 6 years later. So I don't think the quality is rock solid as the original make. no more made in japan.

lem12: Great development, 1 inch sensor! Very interested in all-in-one camera. I own a camera by other maker with larger sensor, but found out that Macro function disables exposure adjustment and becomes entirely Auto. Just checked this camera on its site and couldn't find the answer I was looking for.
Does Creative functions on this camera like Macro, etc. enables Auto control of exposure and other...?
Thanks!

@lem12,
//Does Creative functions on this camera like Macro, etc. enables Auto control of exposure and other...? //
There is a quick Macro focus mode in the dial. That disables exposure controls and enables auto mode. There is a small Focus Lever in the side of the lens, that still keeps all user settings while setting the macro focus mode. This is what you want to use. But you should remember to set it back to normal AF once done.

About your comment 1 inch sensor, it is more than couple of years old and by no means great development. Absolutely none.

I think Sony wins this time.

jaykumarr: congrats.
But I don't understand what happened. There is a bird with severed head, there is falcon and what else is there? how many birds involved here? Is a falcon attacking another falcon that was eating a bird?

thanks for detail

razadaz: These are clearly aimed at the low end of the market (the rrp is not the street price). Nikon have done more than any other camera manufacturer to try and keep everyone happy. Their DX lenses can be used on their FX bodies and vice versa. Even their older lenses can be used with (depending on the camera body) varying degrees of functionality on their newer cameras. Despite their efforts, it would seem that they prove that whatever you do you simply can't please everyone.

@Xentinus,
four families - I mean D3100.., D5100.., D70..,D300.. And they are not fully compatible. While Nikon cameras have outstanding AF capabilities, they suppress the some capabilities in low end.

@Xentius, my comment was not reply to yours, but the original posters. I am with you.

What Nikon did is to cover the market by providing lens with AF motor and lens without that. And four!! families of Crop sensor SLRs some are not even compatible with their some of their DX lenses. Canon has much better compatibility among their DSLRs and lenses, they have only 3 line ups for DSLR crop sensors.
