"While I’m sure some people will want to choose one over the other, the reality is that most existing Lightroom users will want to move on to a different DAM that doesn't ensnare and then screw over it's loyal users."

There. I fixed it.

ofquiet: Dammit, knock it off with all the EVFs on everything! Seeing someone make an updated small (pocketable) camera would be so refreshing at this point. We can't be stuck using the Sony RX100 for the rest of eternity. C'mon.

*And yes I know most people just use their cell phones these days, but if you've ever tried to use one in a challenging situation you should realize the very real limits of it. Not everyone is just shooting daylight selfies and lattes.

Yeah I agree, you're probably right. There's just some of us (apparently not many) who carry a camera with them every day and are tired of having to figure out ways to carry "big" (4/3s) bodies that don't fit in a pocket. If anything I would say the sensor advancements of smartphones indicate the tech is there to make an amazing pns, just not the will.

On article Canon will add C-Log to the EOS 5D Mark IV for $99 (464 comments in total)

Charging consumers extra for something that should have been in the initial release of a very expensive piece of equipment is a new low, even for Canon. It's like they enjoy torturing their customers.

Yeah I just want to say thank you for including that last tip. So important, and so often ignored by so many shooters...

On article Fujifilm X-T10 Review (511 comments in total)

Isn't it weird that the X-T10 and the a6000 both scored 80%, but the Fuji got a silver award and the Sony got a gold for the exact same score?

On article The big beast: hands on with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 (1290 comments in total)
In reply to:

ThePhilips: I do not understand the "built-in flash" whiners. It might have mattered on the GX7, but GX8 is larger. You lose nothing of the portability or size by adding a pocketable external flash (Nissin i40, Mecablitz 26, Olympus FL-LM2).

Otherwise, I have used the built-in flash on my GX7 probably 3 times in all time I own it (and I bought right after the release). Larger built-in EVF totally worth the "sacrifice".

Actually I don't like complaining (you can see I'm not a big commenter around here), I like cameras that are the best they can be. It just gets frustrating when someone gets SO CLOSE, but not quite, as often happens. I also probably wouldn't care if the GX7 wasn't such a great camera that I've been anticipating the update with a lot of hope. At least I can go look at the OLY OMDs and plan to take my Pana lenses with me...

In reply to:

ofquiet: Wait, they made the camera bigger and more expensive, but removed a piece of necessary hardware (built-in flash)??? At this point it's less of a 4/3s and more of a mini dslr, which is redundant.

No one cares THAT much that the teeny tiny viewfinder now has better resolution, but people who want a small(ish) carry-around camera MIGHT care that they have to lug around a flash now. Major fail. This was the big complaint I heard from people who were into the LX100, at first...

The GX7 was an excellent camera (although with unreliable focus) and Panasonic had a great platform to build on. Too bad they shot off their big toe in the process.

I use the GX7 with fast primes, but that doesn't look the same as using a flash, especially if you use it to bounce off the ceiling. I understand the idea of maxing out you lowlight capabilities, but it is not a replacement for a flash, as they don't look at all the same. That's all. So sad that I thought I had finally found a 4/3s system to invest in and now I'm back looking at that Sony rx100 again...

Because if you don't use a flash then no one else should need to either? Now that's something to not understand.

How do you offer a fixed lens $1200 camera WITHOUT image stabilization? Or are you just saving that for the x100s2?
