Jeff Peterman: Sounds like a reason not to buy an iPhone.

If you use an iphone from the last 4 years the way its meant to be used, there is no need for itunes anymore. I also like to tinker, but most of the tinkering on android is for crap skins, and buggy apps. And the Iphone has caught up to all the things I used to miss from my android phone. Its all there now.

Siobhan A: Interesting, the FZ1000 has the same amount of noise or possibly slightly less at higher ISOs. RX10 colors look poor too. Add RX10's inability to focus on a moving object due to no PDAF and no DFD.

The RX10iii had a couple nice gimmicks, but FZ1000 beats it or equals it in so many areas for 1/3rd the price the Panasonic is clearly the better value and usually the better option.

To me the FZ1000 JPEG looks better overall. I think the paint tubes and faces all look better on the Panasonic. That is of course JPEG processing both can be processed to taste from Raw. I realize the Sony JPEG has a hint more detail in the faces but at the expense of more noise. Panasonic color is better too. I have both Sonys and Panasonics and I always prefer Panny JPEGs, but the Sonys can processed from Raw to look how I like.

Jonathan F/2: Panasonic makes great cameras with minimal hype. Sony makes great cameras with paid off photo bloggers who take Sony sponsored trips to Miami.

Cant Blame a company for trying to make money. That is kind of their job.

As for the slippery body, I can attest that it looks like my other pannys and they are slippery. Being heavier I would worry. I did solve this by placing a clear strip of BestSkinsEVER where my fingers go. Its clear and keeps the camera slimmer than adding a grip. I buy an ipad model and just cut out pieces for my camera.

A grip is a good option too.

This looks like an amazing camera. I find my JPEGs on my panasonics to have good color and skin tones most of the time.

However, I do end up making profiles for my Panasonics with my ColorChecker Passport for when shooting in Raw. Panasonic does not have profiles available for Lightroom atleast for my models, so this is a pretty good option if you shoot in raw.

JaimeA: Carey, this is another superb set of photographs. You really show the capabilities and the abilities of the camera. Makes one want to run to buy it. Wow indeed!

I really like when the images actually match the intended use of the camera. I think DPR staff has really gotten better at this the last two years.

phazelag: I wonder where all the arm chair lens engineers who have repeatedly told us what cannot be done will hide now?

I have the FZ1000 and love it, but the same arm chair engineers said that couldnt be done, they said the LX100 couldnt be done. The said the original RX10 couldnt be done. There is forum post after forum post where some says "wouldnt that be cool!" and a few other guys say its not physically or optically possible. But some how these impossible cameras keep coming, and I love them all! I love the innovation. Its fun to watch!

That was a great and fun video. I did keep wondering when the camera was going to be dropped in the water though!

phazelag: It is about time. Good Job Sony!

I wish Olympus, Panasonic, and Fuji did this. The aftermarket in this area is so big, there is obviously money to be made from the demand for the radio wireless features.

Hi Mark300. That link was broken. I did find that flash you are referring to though and it is not Radio wireless TTL Its only Optical wireless. That is not a pro solution. I have radio triggers, and I have crazy work around for wireless TTL however it requires a messy piece taped to the master and slave.

phazelag: I do like some Canon products but reading this kind of smug interview makes me not want to give my dollars to company that smug.

If your taking an opportunity to address your market, then take advantage of it with a candid and compelling message. Instead he just wasted our time.

Sales 101, when speaking to your market, tell them something meaningful.

mpgxsvcd: That picture really makes him look smug. I hope Canon finds a way to be a leader in the industry again. I miss the days when Canon announcements were always a breath of fresh air.

Microsoft is also the leader in software and operating systems and their products inspire very little. The Surface was good, but I am done with windows. Being leader sales is not being a leader in driving innovation. Innovation is being driven by Sony, Olympus, Panasonic, and Fuji. And Actually Nikon deserves alot of credit I just cant give to canon

These answers from the Canon Execs year after year send a clear message that this is a company that has a deep conservative culture. When senior execs have to use language that careful when speaking directly to their user base, there is a huge disconnect.

Canon doesn't have a talent problem, they have a corporate culture that is stuck in the 80s.

phazelag: Can someone tell me how to be able to scroll through these images and maximize my screen real estate? I am not sure why there needs to be so much wasted space and such small images. Using the Loupe is not the same as seeing the entire photo in full screen. Also downloading individually is time consuming. I do find that entering presentation mode on my browser helps but still not full screen.

Thank you.
