Sergey Borachev: The photographer is a selfish moeon, by keeping shooting he was risking injury not only to himself but to the skier. The skier most probably can avoid injury better without a stubborn photog staying put on the crash path. Has charges been laid? Or him banned from all sports job?

He is just as despicable as that other photog who kept shooting at the assassination, as he could have agitated the assassin and cause more killing.

Photography is not so important to risk lives or injury to others.

Correction, it should be moron. I love photography but some of you seem to feel so self-important. Sigh.

And DPR is sending the wrong message each time when reporting such incidents by glorifying selfish acts. Some day, some serious things will happen with such stupid mentality and it will ruin the photography fun, if restrictions are put on by the various authorities. There are too many of these already, like when a photographer just kept on shooting instead of assisting people hurt and at risk of dying, or just stopping to call ambulance or helping with the crowd or whatever.

Sounds fantasTic! I hope everything goes well with this camera and it won't be blocked from selling, and trumped again by Apple before release. 😉

Sergey Borachev: Wow!! The last deal breaker, the lack of IBIS, is gone!! This is a truly great camera for stills. Panasonic and Olympus better be ready for buyers going to Fujiland. Sony APSC cameras also have a tough competitor now.

It has not only IBIS, but also a tilt screen that none of the top M43 cameras have. And 24 MP APSC sensors, nice Fuji colours too, plus more affordable high quality lenses. For those who don't care about video, this looks like the ultimate mirrorless. Bravo! 👏👏👏

For stills, at this time, it is. Which other mirrorless camera has the balanced combination of nice features for stills: IQ, IBIS, nice range of lenses, tilting LCD, AF performance, handling, jpeg colours, and price? Not Sony, not Olympus, not Canon,.and not even Panasonic with its latest G9.

Oliver, check the final image quality, not just the lens optical quality. While those M43 lenses are excellent, but they are for sensors that are smaller and lower res. The end result, i.e. the final image produced by the lens and sensor is what counts. While some lenses may be better than others, there should be little doubt that the images from the Fuji, on average, is better. Given that the lenses are roughtly similarly priced, and the cameras in question are also similarly priced, or cheaper for the Fuji, the only conclusion possible is that Fuji produces better quality/$.

jnd: So which Fuji X-mount cameras have features for cinema use? Or where will you mount these lenses? Surely it's not meant for Youtube vlogging.

They will come, since these lenses are released. Some manufacturers like to have good lenses for their systems, even for APSC, unlike some others. 😉

@Prognathous. You can do your own comparisons but don't pick the ultra cheap M43 lenses because they are flawed or just low quality, e.g. 14-42 EZ, PZ lenses, 12-50mm, 17mm f/2.8,.20mm, 9-18mm, 12-60mm... Also you need to consider the crop size. For example, the Fuji 23mm f/2 when adjusted should be equivalent to the Olympus 17mm f/1.8, but cheaper (B&H) and better in IQ. Similarly,.the Fuji 23mm f/1.4 should be about equivalent to the Olympus 17mm f/1.2 and it's quite a bit cheaper. Do it. Check image quality as well as price.

Don't compare the cheapest lenses, but the better lenses that this camera should be matched with. (There are quite a few cheap and fairly average lenses in M43.)

Sergey Borachev: DPR:
"The most notable changes include the removal of the low-pass filter on the GX9's 20MP sensor, 5-axis in-body image stabilization (up from 4-axis), slightly faster... ..."

To me, the most notable is the change from a large OLED EVF to the small field sequential one. Did anyone else notice this?

@caroFoto, I think such sequential field EVFs should be thrown out, or never reused by Panasonic, OK, maybe in $150 P&S cameras, but not in any ILCs.

ozturert: Panasonic calls this G7X III in their Japanese web site: http://panasonic.jp/dc/g_series/gx7mk3/

Panasonic Japan obviously know they can't fool their own people and wouldn't dare claim this camera is a GX8 upgrade. They just call it the GX7 III. They obviously think we are dumber though. Buy the GX9 and prove them right. 😆

kwa_photo: I am willing to bet that Panasonic will do the following with their mid-high end lines:

-GH5/GH5s (video-centric high end)
-G9 (photo-centric high end, DSLR style)
COMING SOON: (no idea of name) G-something, high-end photo-centric rangefinder style following the idea of the GH5s in that is it specialized for this. Maybe a GX9s with sensor tweaked for high ISO stills, super-res EVF, fast shutter sync with strobes, but still capable of quality 4K if needed.
-GX9 mid-level rangefinder style, photo-centric
-GX85 mid-level DSLR style, video-centric
-Lower level bodies as are know today

Do you know what the GX1 is like?

Sergey Borachev: Pretty good as a cheap mid-range camera,
EXCEPT for this deal breaker:

- 16:9 sequential field EVF!!!

If you are still reading, then realise that it's old underperforming parts that are used, e.g. 4 stop only "Dual-IS", 1/4000 max speed, most probably the old DFD, a kit lens with very ordinary performance, no 60p video, but it's only $999.

Not an exciting camera at all, but a pretty good camera if you are not demanding in your requirements but have to have a tilting EVF and if your eyesight is good. Just as previously feared, Panasonic is again ruining its camera with lousy EVFs.

If you have to buy something cheap and small, Fuji's 24MP A5 is much better.

Ok, your points are correct, but I just said the Fuji is better as a cheap and small camera. It is smaller, lighter and cheaper. I believe buyers at this level would find 4K too much work, requiring time and effort for the heavy file processing and transfers.
processing, transfers. FHD 60p, which is in the Fuji, is a better option for them.

On article Panasonic Lumix G9 vs Olympus OM-D E-M1 II (252 comments in total)

Let me summarise this, after reading everything and taking into account what real users have said about the cameras and their corrections to the mistakes in the review:

The E-M1 II is better for those who own 43 lenses and those super expensive Olympus lenses.

There are considerations in some subjective things like colour rendering, looks, size and handling, and particular needs for some users like G9's OLED EVF and LCD, that can be significant in an evaluation.

In just about all other areas where there's a material difference, in terms of performance and features that are important to photography, stills or video, the G9 is the better camera.

(I used Olympus cameras for 50 years and never had a Panasonic camera.)

Nice photos, but I suspect the same photos could have been taken by this talented photographer using another probably cheaper smartphone, and one with an SD card slot, if not some zooming functions for even more nicely composed or less cropped photos.

On article Huawei Mate 10 Pro camera review (180 comments in total)

Under the Other Specs on the first page, I saw:
"microSD, up to 256 GB" !!!

I suggest that DPR make it clear in big red letters right at the beginning if Micro SD slot is available in future, that would save me and a lot of people their time reading on.
