Great camera, but why no pop-up flash?

BarnET, thank you very much for your reply.
Have a great day!

It's not good to shoot over F5.6 with a small sensor camera? I used to have a panasonic FZ28 and I used F8 to shoot landscape all the time.

On article Sony Alpha 7R II: Real-world ISO invariance study (358 comments in total)

Impressive ISO performance! But I care more about skin tone. I have noticed Canon has the best Skin tone, I don't know if it's the censor or the lens or the image processing unit, but I do prefer Canon's skin tone, so much better! But I'm selling my canon gears because I believe Nikon has a better performance/price ratio. By the way, my focus is portrait and i'm an amateur. I bought a used D300 and a tamron 17-50 2.8 (A16, No VC, No focus motor version.). I am thinking about upgrading to D750 at some point in the future.

SingerNick: As long as Nikon beats the Tamron 24-70 in image quality then there will be a lot of happy photographers.

I am just looking around here, I will definitely pick the Tamron, so much cheaper and almost as good as canon's 24-70 2.8 II.

Allen Yang: I hope Panasonic will upgrade the FZ1000 with a touchscreen and 600mm focal length.

I would go for focal length, touch screen and lightning fast focus, all in a small and low profile body to avoid attention on the street. Do I sound "insatiable"? lol

The ideal camera for CANDID shots on the street, I think, would be one with low profile, fast focus, long focal length, swivel and touch screen.

This is really good, and also, the panasonic FZ300.

On article LG G4 camera review (105 comments in total)

I don't expect phone cameras to replace 1'' censor powered high end compact cameras like Sony RX100 series in a short term. But, I do hope they will be able to eliminate compact cameras with 1/1.7'' or smaller censors soon, even though the image quality of high end phone cameras are impressive, compact cameras with relatively larger censor, like Canon S120, for now, are still considerably superior in terms of image quality. And I am glad to see more and more phone manufacturers are starting to improve manual controls. However, as for optical zoom, ehhh,it's a different story.

Allen Yang: Why not a used D600 with a cheap Tamron 28-70 at a little more than 1 grand bucks? Yeah,I know, this combination is heavier and bigger,but the IQ you get is much higher than this Forrest Gump! (I like the movie though)

I know it's portable! You can put this in your "shirt" pocket and make the pocket look like a big lump. But my point is buyers are paying TOO MUCH for this "portability".

At least D600 is a digital camera. I know it's much larger than this sony thing, but still, it's comparable whereas film camera is almost dead, much less popular.

Allen Yang: I used to like Panasonic, but the skintone of indoor portraits and high ISO noise were hideous! I took a picture of my aunt in a restaurant and showed her the pic. What a horrible mistake, she almost killed me! Her face looked sort of purple in that picture. By the way, the camera I used back then was a Panasonic LX3.

I don't think it's the size of the sensor. I believe it has more to do with the image processor. Canon has very good color tone of human skin. Nikon is kind of yellowish, I mean the skin tone of indoor portrays. One thing I like about panasonic cameras is the images are sharp, kind of like Nikon.

Well, I guess we need to find someone who has used the latest Panasonic cameras. Maybe Panasonic has made some breakthrough in skintone rendition and high ISO noise reduction.
