Kamox: It's a great step forward.
Nobody reads "legalish", as it's either too long or too complicated.
Here you can read a few, simple points.
My conclusion after reading them is: "the least you share, the better".

The more you share, the more exposure. The more exposure, the better. Just be smart on what you share...

Looks cool, but it seems like a tiny niche to me. Not applicable in real life anytime soon, unless they can sell them by the many thousands...

You need to put passion and beauty into everything you do.

"pro" "tools" included. I always get shut down when criticizing Canikon's bubbly design. I will maintain my point, regardless...

Sandisk, whatever you design, make it beautiful!

Numbers and specs count and all that, but for a fraction of the cost you can just hire a good industrial designer and get it all into a nice package. It's brainless. If you really have no idea what to do, just get a simple aluminium extrusion. Simple.

In reply to:

rgs_45: I hope there will there be an "ALL black" (lens and body) model slated for the U.S. market? Silver is good but not a fan :)

I think Pany is changing (simplifying) the designation for their "range finder" models.

GX x (GX8 - high end)
GX xx (GX85 - mid)
GX xxx (GX850 - low end) such as the one featured here.

The GX xxx can replace both the GM and GF series. No need to have two small rangefinder model when this can replace both. Some are already "screaming" VF, maybe the next model will get one.

I hope they do the same with the G Series DLSR type

G x - high end
G xx - mid
G xxx - low end (if applicable)

They can leave the GH designation as their top of the line system.

I think this naming convention will simplify Panasonic camera models. My 2 cents :)

I second that.
I used to read/follow camera makers progress A LOT!!!
Now I have no idea what is what and what supersedes what...

I know it's just a name, but if Fujifilm does this, I am out.

In reply to:

GodSpeaks: Ok Panasonic, enough is enough. No more G, X, 8, 5, 0 letter/number combinations for naming cameras. This has gone beyond stupid.

Newsflash Panasonic! Nobody cares, everyone is confused.

Just do one letter for the line and one number for the sequence.
Not even "lumix" - nobody cares what that is.

arhmatic: 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.

@Revenant I though their scope is to sell stuff...

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...

In reply to:

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!
