In reply to:

amipal: How does a 90mm on medium format compare to a 90mm on full-frame? Is there a negative crop-factor involved?

Thanks everyone!

Chaitanya S: Do those buttons also rotate with collar into portrait orientation?

The 100-300 was quite an early lens for the system though. This one is brand new, and I expect Panasonic have learnt a bit over the years since the release of the original long-zoom.

htelford: First mirrorless camera in 2008? I seem to remember Canon producing a mirrorless 35mm camera in, IIRC, the 60's; think it was called the Pellix? Please correct me if I am in error.
Thanks

Compact cameras don't have interchangeable lenses.

Ergonomics.

The Lumix GH3 and GH4 are very good ergonomically, buttons and switches all in easy reach.

In reply to:

Lift Off: There's a big advantage to mirrorless that I think should be mentioned in this article: the ability to use legacy lenses (from virtually any system available), with the added bonus of being able to manual focus faster and with more accuracy than with any other system.

Along with size, I know this was what made me jump from dSLR to mirrorless.

@7829mark: I know on Olympus m43 cameras with in-body stabilisation that you can enter the focal length for the lens, and the stabilisation takes care of the rest. I'd be very surprised if Sony's implementation did not.

When we talk of "mirrorless" we really mean "digital mirrorless" - the first of which was the Panasonic Lumix G1 in 2008.

luisflorit: So is Panasonic going to use old sensors until 2018, or will they call Sony???

That's weird - I haven't noticed any banding issues with the 20mm on my GH3.

ThePhilips: 8K is 33MP in 16:9 AR. I gather full 43 sensor would have to be pushing the 40MP mark. Rather ambitious. I just hope it doesn't lead to too many sacrifices in other areas.

The smaller the sensor, the quicker it is to read from.

ric63: Great shot of an unusual aircraft

Thanks! Gatwick Aviation museum is an interesting place, plenty of old aircraft outside in a field. Allows for some good compositions against the sky.

amipal: A nice selection of images. A few of us at my camera club decided to do a 365 this year, so only a few more days left before it's done and dusted for 2014.

If anyone is interested, I've posted mine up on Flickr:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/28321983@N02/sets/72157639275243245/

A vast majority shot with m43 gear, but there's also some iPhone and Fuji P&S in there.

Thanks Toni, and thanks for taking a look!

It's been difficult to make it through what has turned out to be a very tough year - at times, I've been struck by inspiration and desperately needed to get out with the camera. Other times, I really struggled to find anything worth shooting.

Will I carry on next year? Perhaps not, but I'll definitely have my camera bag with me everywhere I go!

On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 Review (490 comments in total)

I've been working my way through the GH-series through the years, and currently have a GH3. I've tried the equivalent Olympus cameras, and they just fall down on usability. I can alter settings on the Panasonic cameras without a second's thought, yet Oly bury things under layers of not necessarily obvious menus.

So I don't think it's a simple case of saying "If you're only interested in stills then it's not quite such a compelling proposition" - because I'd rather get 100% of my photos almost there, than a handful.

BPD7: This is one reason I chose Fuji over Sony and am leaving Canon

The Sony lenses are incredibly weak compared to Fuji's offering, both current and future. Coupled with Sony effectively dropping APS-C now the the A7 system is out.

It's great that Fuji are supporting an older device like this. Too many tech firms are happy to let their older models become unsupported in order to force customers into upgrading.

In reply to:

qwertyasdf: I hope the in body IS works well. Because seriously, Panasonic in lens OIS sucks.

What's wrong with OIS? Never had a problem with it, and you'd do much better with OIS at the long-end of a 300mm than in-body stabilisation.

Hong Kong really is a photographer's city - so much potential there. Great shot!
