phazelag: I bought and still have the original FZ1000 at launch in 2014. I think this camera is a good deal and I still love mine. But it does make me sad that camera innovation is slowing to this level. Same camera 6 years later. The only reason I like this camera over the later Sony RX10 models is that its about 200 grams lighter for travel, hiking, etc. But I still would like an RX10 IV and enjoyed my original RX10

Here are some of my FZ1000 photos https://www.scottzinda.com/Point-and-Shoot-Cameras/Panasonic-FZ1000/

Thanks Andrew, Its always a trade off. I love my Canon M50 for APS-C quality but not an all on one thats light and convenient, you cant beat the 1 inch sensor options. Actually most of my photos are with the RX100M3 that fits in my pocket. 1 inch sensor as well.

What is the price of the software and computational photography that is the magic sauce for great photos?

If it shoots in Raw like the air I will probably get one. If its JPEG only like the Spark I will pass and wait for the next version of the Air with "AirSense" enabled.

beavertown: Who would have thought Canon's half-heartedly released EOS M system would not go down in history like N1 and MFT but is going to have a bright future?

zeppelin, I am an EOS M fan and I have owned three so far. I have the M50 currently. I really like the M but there are a lot of features the M43 have over Canon M. Number 1 is the lens selection. M43 has amazing high quality lens that are light, compact, and super high quality. Also the M43 systems have so many bodies options. Some have lots of manual controls, some are compact, however all of them have had software features that Canon is still 5 years behind on. Also most professional drone cameras (a super fast growing camera segment) are M43 as well as many amazing cinema cameras. I think if you really learned what M43 has available you might reconsider your stance. The image quality on M50 is good but honestly my OMD EM1 photos were beautiful and I did plenty of paid work with that. I still prefer Olympus Color Profiles to any other brand.

Franz Weber: This nothing new. It is basically the same kind of machine learning that was shown 1991 already in Terminator Judgement Day by the T800. You can easily achieve this with any neural network that has self awareness and learns at geometrical speed.

Nice!

Is the Leica available for Canon? I am on seeing it in my google searches.

I love drones, but I also am careful and thoughtful about it. Just like with anything, smart, creative, and thoughtful people will use them to create amazing art, but the stupid and thoughtless people will cause disruption.

HB1969: Regarding the injuries from catching drones, perhaps propeller guards should come as standard.

They add weight and lower speed and flight time. I only catch my small drones. Larger ones I let land. Its not that big of an issue.

Spectro: wow that looks like my Orlit Rovelight 400 I got $350. ButI am trading it with my friend who has a Godox 400. Orlit ittl sucks and we both know about it. He has 2 other orlit so it would match his trigger. Manual mode it does fine and it does HSS what we really care for. Orlit is Jinbei for Adorama.

Does the Orlit work across all TTL brands?

Link | Posted on Sep 29, 2019 at 23:11 UTC

This looks great working with all brands, but seeing some posts about similar items in the comments already, I think it is time to investigate this market again. A quality TTL flash/strobe that works across brands will get my money. I do have several brands for a variety of reasons, so this is welcome news!

I had the Godox A1 and the phones shutter speeds and sync speeds were so limited I sold it. will be interesting to see reviews of this.

phazelag: The wide angle on this phone reminds me of how much I was looking forward to the Nikon DL 18-50mm that never came out. I think that would have been a cool focal range. I have the Canon 11-22 on my M50, but I think the Nikon would have been special. Having these three focal ranges on a phone this powerful is pretty cool, but most non photographers will not know how good they have it.

Aegon I am with you on the DL. I still shoot with my Sony RX100m3 almost always over my iPhone XS Max. The iPhones are impressive but I still enjoy the far superior images and manual controls with flash of my real cameras.

On article Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VII: What you need to know (154 comments in total)

I bought the mark 3 on the release date, and I have literally beat the dog do out of it because its been everywhere in my pocket. These things are tanks. I have several brands of 1 inch sensors as well as larger sensors, and this camera has more photos in my Lightroom catalog than any other camera combined.

I am expecting this new version 7 will be the last camera for many people. It looks incredible. I have the FN button setup on my M3 and the ergonomics work fine for me but it takes practice and time to get used to it.

Remember the Nikon DL18-50 that never launched? Imagine if Sony made an 18-50! I would have that and this in both pockets!
