A slightly used / refurbished (4 year old )Panasonic FZ1000 is still the best value ....$650 !

.

I get shots using the Full zoom of the FZ1000, you would need a much longer lens than the 85 and possibly a Tripod to get the shots I am taking with a FF camera. I am able to Take shots s=zooming in in Steps so you can see the everything from distance to closeup.

I shoot events where the other Photographers are using either full frame or APS-C using a FZ1000. The Long Zoom lets me get pictures that the other photographers can't shoot without changing lenses, and would miss because of the time the lense change takes.

On article Hands-on with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 IV (338 comments in total)

I would have hoped for 4k60p at that price point, but whether it i worth the money will be the still/video Quality. I am Happy with my FZ1000, for 1K less right now.

When they patent a flexible curved sensor that adjusts to the lense installed they will have something...

fabulousrice: Not everyone:
1-likes the possibility of shooting unlimited amounts of photos
2-likes carrying around batteries, charging, having batteries die on them
3-likes having to renew their equipment every other year to entertain the financial needs of the digital industry
4-likes the idea that your digital photos will disappear when you die and / or a few years later when your hard drives do
5-likes absolute control, absolute sharpness, absolute mainstream looks
6-likes spending hours getting their eyes damaged by computer light to "retouch" photos
7-agrees with the idea that "hey the world is moving on everything is digital deal with it". Actual artists and creative people create things in the physical world
8-has a definition of photography that is "pressing a button and effing around at the stuff on a computer until your butt falls off"

I shoot both film and digital, I have seen how they age, and I do not have as much faith in digital

you can create 200 year archival prints from digital images, you need to use pigment inks not dye inks for archival prints especially if you are not putting them behind glass.

I work in aerospace, so no complaints, but you could find out what cameras and lenses they used.

On article Dell announces 4K HDR10 monitor (88 comments in total)
In reply to:

ThrillaMozilla: With a 27 inch monitor the pixel size is around 0.3 mm. Years ago, 300 dpi (0.08 mm) became hopelessly obsolete for laser printers because everyone could see the jaggies.

Now I find that I often go to my 4K TV instead of my very good 2K computer monitor to see how my prints will look. I very much welcome 4K in spite of the cost.

I bought a 4k tv so I could get a better previews of posters for plotter.
On a 1080p screen a poster could look fine but would have unwanted thin lines left in the image.

Guimar: I may have missed it, but the review left out the biggest advantage for video this camera has for video, it allows recording until you fill up the memory card or the battery runs out, the others have time cutoff limits.
It doesn't matter how good the image quality is, if it shuts of 30 minutes into a 1 hr shoot.

Stop restart takes more than 2 sec on my FZ1000, many cases speaking is done by a panel of people, when someone wants a drink of water they have another person speak. Time limit is a killer for me.

I shoot conferences with hour long lectures, 30 min time limit is a fatal flaw.

Lensupthere: I took that photo. I work for SkyIMD. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.

As noted on the page, there are various distortions and misalignments because I used photoshop merge and didn't have the the time to correct everything to perfection. This is why the circle is not a true circle.

We could have used a drone, but the time to capture the entire campus would have been too long. Shadows and people and material locations would have changed. We could have used a Nikon 810 or canon 5dsr, but that would have increased the number of paths and flight time.

That Rodenstock lens outperforms our Zeiss planar 85mm or Sigma Art lens on either the Nikon or Canon.

What kind of stabilzer do you use, and did you have an automated PTZ head to compensate for aircraft movement?

Looks exciting, the photomode on the FZ1000, did most of what I need,
The Video time limit and zooming during video were issues (I kept my fz150 to shoot videos that involved lots of zooming (Sports) and Long Duration Videos Conferences.
