On article A comfortable fit: Panasonic Lumix GX850 overview (117 comments in total)

Who names these cameras? You are totally confusing the buyers.

Why not just do one letter (for the series) and one number (for the sequence) and call it done. TWO CHARACTERS! This applies to most camera makers. Olympus seems even worse.

In reply to:

io_bg: Now why do they call the same camera three different names in various markets? Makes zero sense to me.

"Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX850 (Lumix DMC-GX800 / Lumix DMC-GF9)"

I have no idea what to order... All I wanted is a letter+number (one each)

Apple needs to put some effort into adding some sort of controls on the camera app.

I know, "you can just get a $2 app" as a camera app, but the question remains - why is apple so stubborn and obnoxious about this?

Gavril Margittai: I am not sure it is in the interest of the free world to popularize the picture of the assassin (professional photographer or not). But this is just my personal opinion.

Let's remember why this all started... why are we even here? You popularize the war, but not the side effects?

Everyone reading this at "dpreveiw" should be aware that a simple "typo" might be sufficient to dupe buyers/readers.

I tried the bar in the apple store. Too crammed and small to be useful for fast workflow...

It should be at least twice as tall, so you can use it without hunting... just like a keyboard. The size is really a remnant from the old FN keys. I though apple can be a little more creative...

arhmatic: The User Interface is a significant part of the shooting experience. I am glad to see Haselblad giving this proper attention. I hope all others would follow. Fujifilm you too!

If you are an UI designer, or a designer of any type, you need to be aware of people's needs. Functionality is one, but beauty is important. It's tech, it's art. So it's your job, do it right.

Sony, Fujifilm, everyone else... especially if the UI is really a software items, can be improved anytime once you have the hardware platform. Same with the remote camera app. Do it!

Thorgrem: Fuji really needs to make a smaller (maybe pancake) standard zoom. This is to big for the target audience.

Yes please. Fuji needs some pancake lenses. I second that! In the size of similar Panasonic lens.

Meanwhile, today's cameras... Seriously, when do camera makers start making timeless pieces again?

FarHagh: A $2000, 20MP M43? I would prefer a 12MP at $1200! OK, $1500 but the point is the pixel size would then be around D500's.

how is that relevant to photography?

arhmatic: What about in terms of "features"? This camera completely lacks any form of manual control that actually make a camera... no WB, ISO setting and such... This is only a comparable in terms of pixel peeping, if any, and I am NOT impressed...

@mandophoto --- So apple is not in the business of making cameras, so it's ok if they sell you a dumbed-down version of a camera... Makes sense...

I am not in the business of making cars, but if I do make one, it will come with thee wheels.

Lars, true. There are workarounds, but this is yet another example of Apple stubbornness... I bring this up whenever I have the chance, and I am meet with some sort of skepticism... "if you really need it...". Well, I simply do...

In reply to:

mandophoto: I get that smartphone cameras are not meant explicitly for professional use. Nevertheless the ubiquitous adoption of these cameras for most of the photography being done nowadays suggests a level of competency should be considered in their design. To that end, perhaps a test on shutter button/actuation lag could be considered.

The photo samples clearly show why the stand alone camera is in decline. Well, photography by any means is still photography.

Agreed. This is the only camera for a good percentage of the population.
Apple owes them an actual camera, with proper camera controls.
