what a waste of time...
there is gazillion ways that banks and goverments mistreat people,
so much injustice at the corporate and corruption world....why to ruin mans life just to prove that animals have rights?

ANIMALS DONT CARE ABOUT OUR LEGAL SYSTEM! they are way beyond and above it all...they are part of nature.
PETA is making the man suffer form self-righoutes pretty minded fantasy thinking, just a waste of resources.

Adobe and performance is not something that goes together,
if you use adobe premiere then expect ridicules rendering times,

the funny part is that years ago, the users have developed graphics card acceleration on their own, i cant comprehand why a single person can implement it and adobe cant

I didn't realize that such a high percentage of DPreview readers own this camera, to post this as news.

On article Looking back: Canon's eye-controlled focus (212 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ryanide: I loved the Eye control on the Canon A2E. It worked well for me, even wearing contacts. I found it to be very intuitive. I always wondered why they dropped it. Was it a user safety issue? Something potentially hazardous for extended use??

it was hard sell because it would cause a large percentage of people to complain,
so canon probably decided on a lesser feature set rather then a broken feature for third of uers

In reply to:

falconeyes: I don't know why this is worth a news article.

Sony features this as the "Smooth Reflections" in-camera app and it beats the google app in every aspect. In particular, it combines up to 256 frames into a single RAW in camera! The result is immediate, like if the camera could be set to ISO 10 or ISO 1 even.

Yet, this gorgeous app never got any praise by DPR.

Stacking as such is a trivial technology for DPR readers.

Thank you for posting that, it appears sony didnt pay as much to DPR...

Would it RAW on my RED?

mgblack74: What the heck. I have a 4 year old Asus laptop that is still ripping through 36mp RAW files like a hot knife through butter. And yet people are complaining about a 4 year old high end desk top getting slower. That is a pickle.

Try it on 2-3 layers of Compressed H264 - 4k video's on a timeline in Premiere,
Yes its only 8mp, but at 90 "frames" per second, any PC will scream and 3 year old hardware is not going to cut it.

And no i dont like to transcode, but sometimes you have to.

I hope that other companies will learn from fuji how to invest in your customer, instead of milking him for the next product.

focal length-dependent minimum shutter speed - 20 years overdue?
I never understood why i had to change the shutter speed while zooming,

I'm glad that at least fuji implements such feature

In reply to:

ecka84: I don't get it ... Why are you Fuji trolls bashing Canon/Sony/Nikon to glorify Fuji?
C/S/N have many of those "new" features for years. Is it that hard to be honest with yourself? Don't you have any self-respect at all?
OK, now you can throw your rotten tomatoes (aka. non-arguments and "bovine excrement"). I mean, being a Fuji fanatic must be hard. You have to keep inside all the pain, frustration and anger while praising the Fuji-lord. Because otherwise you will be expelled from the sect. The steam vapor must go somewhere, just let it go ... I'm ready :)

Canon and Nikon have different products
There are Cons/Pros to every product and companies need to decide where they invest their R&D

Fuji invests in different areas such as compact size or film simulations etc...while canon invests in different features.

The differences is that Fuji still adds features, and they are the only company, to still add features to already released products, it really creates more loyal customers and worthy to mention.

Anyone here upgraded from S6 to S7?

IMHO Galaxy S7 had worse image quality then S6,, too artificial and over processed.
I just hope that S8 wont make it worse.

On article Ask the staff: electronic or optical viewfinder? (890 comments in total)

everyone's a psychic, otherwise you wouldn't exist.

Having an optical VF lets you "connect" with the scene in faster more intuitive way, its not that EVF have lag (today the lag is negligible) its the fact that they are being a "filter" between your consciousnesses and surrounding which makes you miss OVF.

For Video i prefer EVF, but when shooting stils for an Event....my mind has to be "everywhere" and cannot be in the EVF.

I notice that there is no built-in dock for the S-pen....requiring one of those fabric loops to hold it.

i can see one on the keyboard's side

W5JCK: Hmmm, another crowdfunding ripoff. I think the vast majority of crowdfunding projects are nothing more than ways for crooks to make a good salary for a few years then fold up leaving the investors high and dry. I have absolutely no sympathy for the investors. A moron who invests in a scam that is clearly a scam gets what they deserve. If inventors don't have the wherewithal to obtain legitimate funding from financial institutions, much less even create a decent business plan, then only morons will invest with them.

@wh13

i think indiegogo, while is receiving 9% of the 34 million dollars from this project alone, which is 3 million dollars from the lily project alone, can spare a few bucks to make a security checkup for the big projects that are being run there..
in fact i just discovered that Indiegogo have a Trust and Safety Team that currently investigating the case.

Smells like a rip-off, i'll agree...
but investors are not the ones to blame,
the integrity/security background checkup system of the crowdfunding sites is at fault here.

This camera have changed my life!

I've practically flew to Singapore to get it,
I've been planing Southeast Asia trip and since i figured that it would just start selling in Singapore, i've decided to fly there.

Long story short, i've met my wife and found a job there as well, Thanx GH1 :)
And forgive me that i sold you...a foolish foolish move...which i regret.

As A Camera It was perfect.
If to consider that this was the second ever MIrrorless camera it did everything right,
AF in video was amazing for that time, the silent focusing and OIS...and had almost no quirks at all.

Later the GH13 firmware came out and straightened the 1080p codec as well, a video beast for its time, not unlike the GH5 for today...
