Sam Santana: nice pancake tele-zoom

Lol, and there I was hoping for some more Canon pancake lenses, now we have the technique :-)

BadScience: ipads, iphones, cameras with lcd screens....are a complete nuisance at gigs and the anti-social muppets who wave their distracting gadgets in the air should be shot.

Not escorted, shot dead, but at the back of the hall so as not to get in the way.

Panasonic : can we have the serial number printed on again under warranty?

Torsten Hoff: >> as long as you retain proof of purchase and the label from the camera box that states the serial number.

So if the camera was a gift or you already threw out the box, you're screwed? Sorry Panasonic, not good enough.

Simple, if you have proof of purchase, Panasonic should be honouring first year warranty without considering serial numbers, as is done with many machines. Any other attitude would be illegal.

Le Kilt: Gosh, remember, all compacts cameras are mirrorless. Now some have interchangeable lenses. And some are getting great sensors. Convergence ? The question is do you want TTL optical viewfinder, even if it means more bulk. All the rest is... yawn...

P.S. Please Sony, bring out an SLR version of the Sony A7RII AF compatible with Canon lenses!

Hi Richard,
Sorry, I was probably being a bit rude ;-) and the naming of the MILCs was indeed a problem (I remember the survey here for a sensible name!).
I suppose to me (shooting mostly with Canon DSLRs) the viewfinder remains a very important aspect, at least with an SLR you know you've got one, with half the MILCs you don't, so I wouldn't put them in the same basket, but that's me... :-)

Good camera.

Very disappointed not to see an intervalometer included in the firmware.

Interesting smartphone type apps feature - you connect the camera directly to the internet using its Wifi, then (using a PlayMemories account you've set up) you can see and download new apps to the camera.
Not many yet, but a handfull of free ones.

BUT 9.99 € for an intervalometer app (albeit a good one), I feel a bit ripped off.

Sony :
- Please add the option not to turn the camera off when pushing the viewfinder back down.
- Please include an intervalometer in the firmware, or provide a free one in the apps.

But nice camera.

How annoying and distracting, the photos scrolling up or down... :-(

Could do with a little extra width (not easy if you haven't the lens with you!) but a high class photo :-)

In reply to:

Biowizard: "... located to the *left* of the lens mount. Also on the *left* is a full-sized HDMI ..."

That's a very "selfie" oriented decription! With the camera pointing at a subject other than oneself, I'd say those buttons and the data ports are on the RIGHT hand side of the camera! Just as I think of the shutter release on my DSLR as being on the right hand end of the top-plate!

Brian

EDIT: Indeed, as in your OM-D E-M10 review: "The camera's ports (a micro-HDMI socket and combined USB/AV output) move to the *right* flank" ... same (relative) location as those sockets on the Blackmagic!

Then again, when you're describing a pic just above the text, and it says "on the left ot the mount" which is staring you in the face, I'm sure not many struggled to follow the description ;-)
