There's this amazing innovation that you can even DIY yourself for not a lot of money! It's called... a pocket. :P

On article 2017 Buying Guide: Best cameras for sports and action (124 comments in total)

Given the G9 hasn't been reviewed, can you really put it there? AF tracking capabilities need time to be understood and fine tuned, you can't just say it's good enough in a list that includes the D5 and D500 without a proper review, can you?

lightandaprayer: The Moral of the Story for photographers: Register your copyrights. At least register all images that are published, including your online portfolio and anything that is posted online. Without registration, your legal and financial options are so limited an infringement isn't worth addressing if the infringer will not stop using your images and/or pay for the use.

Once you get in the habit, registration isn't difficult nor expensive to do. Registration can be done online.

Gah, I never understood why US makes you do this registration thing, while just about every other Berne signatory doesn't.

Errr, yes? It's the yearly readers' poll, done as a retrospective of the year, so it makes plenty of sense to me.

thxbb12: Any reason why neither the Olympus 12-100 f/4, nor the Panasonic 8-18 f2.8-4 are in the list?

But ~20 lenses for the prime category is ok?

They're in the entry-level section. Panasonic and Olympus haven't released many cameras this year.

OlavM: I'm a happy camper with my 1 year old 7D2, but now:
Seems a m43 (the G9) is outresolving a cropp'er (7D2). Is that a first ?
Next shock came up, when comparing ISO's up to 6400: The G9 is better !!!!
(from 3200, besting my trusty old 5D2? a FF?? oouch!)
When paired with some top optics, Pana seemingly has come up with
'the real thing' here?
(my 1. digicam was a Pana FZ10, then only Canons)

The G9 is using one hell of a lens though in that shot though!

Image quality was always going to be there; sensors and the imaging pipeline are fairly predictable nowadays. I'm more interested to see how the AF fares, it's where Panasonic is betting this camera on to differentiate from the GH5.

Come on, it's not like this is the first big battery that has made its way to a mirrorless. The GH3 and the EM1 II both have had DSLR-sized batteries before the Sony.

They did; it's been settled and he'll receive compensation as well as a copy of the box set.

5inchfloppy: It's incredibly useful for people who do livestreams from their phones. That seems to be all the rage today.

Livestreamers aren't that much concerned about IQ, so recording on the phone is more convenient for them.

Gotta be more open minded about technology.

Indeed, I feel like the Japanese camera companies are getting left further and further behind with each passing year. They do great image quality and that's it.

In reply to:

Jay Williams: It's definitely impressive that this can be done with phones. I also think it's interesting that much better quality can be had for significantly less money (e.g., Nikon D3300 w/kit lens for $400, or whatever your favorite is).

"Low-end DSLRs have mushy 1080p codecs"

You mean, Canon DSLRs. *badum-tish*

The Nikon DSLRs have decent 1080p video, it's just that everything else other than output quality is a bit of a pain, like the AF you mentioned.

So that's where all the NX Galaxys went.

I thought that was pretty cool, but some transitions might have been a bit too fast. Still it's something that's neat to do and might be useful to add a little different to to usual time lapse.

It's human nature; same thing with exotic pets. "Ooo it's cute, I must own it!"

yslee1: I'm pretty sure there isn't, but I'd like to confirm: There's no 50/60hz mode switching in this camera, is there?

That's what I was afraid of. For a "pro" camera that really stinks.

Jacques Cornell: Dual slots will finally shut up the "MFT isn't pro" crowd. Yay!
Not that this pro needs 'em.

Sony doesn't do appliances, but Panasonic does.

Also quad slot toaster or GTFO.

Edmond Leung: Looks like a very nice lens.
But once again.... it is really big and heavy.
Can you talk with Leica if they can improve these two issues?

Canon's 200/2.8L, Nikon's 180/2.8, Pentax's 200/2.8 are all 750-800g lenses, and are optically very good, even with the aging Nikon design. I fail to see why the Panasonic has to be 66% heavier and at three to four times the price of the above lenses.

Ilia Snopchenko: Looks like Panasonic hangs out with Leica too much, the overpricing disease is apparently contagious... :)

Is there another 200/2.8?
