Bjrn SWE: Where is the viewfinder?

The viewfinder is on the Canon G5 X.

This appears to be a product of "real Kodak", rather than a company they sold their brand name to.

Jay Williams: As photographers, I can't believe you guys are using the idiotic term "selfie" rather than "self portrait." Or maybe I'm the only one who is bothered at the dumbing down of modern day English.

The phrase "self portrait" strikes me as being more formal, such as a timed camera on a tripod. A "selfie" is just a self snapshot in which the subject holds the camera. At least those are my personal definitions. :-)

"This image gives a good indication of the G9 X Mark II's slim construction. When turned off (shown here) the body is a mere 31mm thick." -DPR

Its niche is that it is a true pocket cameras, 25% thinner, and weighing 30% less, than a Sony RX100 IV.

On article CES video: the Nikon D5600 (42 comments in total)
In reply to:

Bob A L: From the video the body and grip area does not appear to be any different than the D5500. Anybody else compare?

I think the claim is that the body is thinner, making the grip deeper.

It's too embarrassing to ask on-camera, but off-camera DPR should see if they can pry some information about the status of the DL out of Nikon.

No red, no sale. :-)

"It's hard to really appreciate from looking at a picture, but the D5600 feels almost incredibly slim when compared to previous D5000-series DSLRs. The deeper grip and thinner body make a real difference to handling." -DPR

Nice. Not every advancement is measured on a spec sheet.

This is a true pocket camera. It's 24% thinner, and weighs 31% less, than the Sony RX 100 IV.

Since Panasonic is so video-centric, why don't they just go "all in" and make an M43 video-only camcorder?

In reply to:

noflashplease: The GM5 at least had an EVF in a tiny form factor. What's the purpose of this thing? The GX850 is a confusingly named, awkward product. At least Panasonic is consolidating a couple of overlapping product lines, but the result is another me-too selfie machine.

Here's another M43 camera that's destined for obscurity and minuscule sales, much like the Olympus PL-8. Enough already.

Back when there was a web site that publicly reported retail camera sales in Japan, the Olympus PEN Lite was consistently a best seller.

The lens makes it thicker, but with its small size, it might be an interesting alternative to 1"-type sensor compact cameras.

"Like its predecessors, the Panasonic GH5 promises to push the limits of video capabilities in a hybrid stills/video camera." -DPR

Panasonic sure seems to have nailed that niche.

"Panasonic has clearly listened to users" -DPR

Isn't that a violation of some Camera Industry Rule? :-)

"in the US in early February for a body-only price of $549" -DPR

In my experience, taking photos without a lens produces poor results.

I wonder how long it will be before Canon gives the G5 X the Mark II / DIGIC 7 treatment. If I was to go with a (1" sensor) camera that included an EVF, the fixed-centered EVF design would be my preference.

In addition to no DL, Nikon has a dormant-to-dead Nikon 1, with no mirrorless replacement in sight.

In reply to:

Mariano Pacifico: Nikon has come up with D5600 still no Nikon DL18-45 Premium Camera they announced last year. The "delay" was due to Fukushima earthquake. Was it a bummer of camera? We can never know.

According to Nikon, the DL delay was "due to the serious issues with the integrated circuit for image processing", not the earthquake.
