if i have it, i would rather got the RAW file and develop myself
which RAW program can process the RAW?

got DNG files and only Lightroom can use?
for sure can't have DXO PRIME, don't support DNG
C1 get limited DNG support, don't know what this really mean

Garug: These images hurt my eye like distortion on sound hurts my ears. There is something just wrong on them.

they are manipulate to HDR like to please the public that don't understand photography
a bog sensor not manipulate image is real photo

can these be called computer generate art?

KrisAK: We seem to have reached a threshold. Photos from this phone look every bit as occasionally great, mostly very good and occasionally dreadful (bar & low light) as do photos from the recent generation of cell phones from other brands.

I'm not sure how any of these companies can sustain extremely high prices without a fundamental breakthrough in tech. Is anything on the horizon?

can say the same about DSLR/mirrirless shooting jpeg
actually probably even worse
load into Lightroom/C1 and auto adjust may make most pic good but most won't do

no wonder phone taking over

Jefftan: I wonder if "auto tone" crank up "vibrance" and "saturation" would ruin any color profile

I always wonder if I should move "vibrance" and "saturation" back to default?

Anyone?

i also find "auto tone" won't work for "camera standard" foy my A6500
sky color become real strange

only "adobe standard" work with "auto tone"

Jonathan Mac: In the west, most people still think that a good camera needs to be big. The same people think that the kit lens will bring them all the benefits of that big camera. In Asia people have traditionally always liked their tech to be smaller so their less averse to mirrorless.

I don't see any of that changing, but the market is still in a period of instability as compacts disappear and phones reach the limits of current sensor tech to bring them the quality their owners want.

even in the west, aging old and middle age will bring them to lighter mirrorless camera

mirrorless is future at least until current middle age/old age all die

current young don't seem to care camera, only phone

Aroart: Just about every person I know non photo geek has know idea what mirrorless is... My nephew that is in college bought a Canon 80d, recommended by his teachers for photography and videography classes.. My pro videographer friends mostly switched from Canon dslrs to Sony mirrorless for obvious reasons..

problem is those non photo geek go to phone, not use camera at all

watch camera maker action is more telling than any statistics
Nikon/Canon try to delay mirrorless as long as possible and reason is well known

Now they have to launch mirrorless
still need to debate which is the future?

few new compact launch by make also is telling
even bigger sensor 1 inch, ,my memory is Panasonic ZS200 the only new model in 2017/2018

Jefftan: 1 inch camera like RX100 series is dying?

Hard to believe as it off decent IQ with zoom and fit in a pocket

It should not be killed by phone (no zoom, lower IQ)

RX100 mark 1 and mark 2 is too cheap to ignore for anyone that like camera

still much higher IQ than phone (especially with DXO PRIME)
low weight and cheap cost
anyone half serious should not bother to take anywhere and use instead of phone

sharing is a problem but I don't like social media
others that do care Facebook may not think the same

I buy TG-5 but regret it
no point for 1/2.3 compact from now on
1 inch should be the minimum sensor size

If Olympus don't upgrade sensor size, no more TG for me
after all, high end smartphonee is waterproof

Is the best Hauwei P9 for now?

I suggest any Lightroom user to also get DXO Photolab for PRIME NR for mid to high ISO pics

NR in Lightroom not even close
I would just leave Lightroom NR at default (luminance 0)

when i can't tolerate the noise, I switch to DXO PRIME
pretty early for me, I can't toleratenoise at about ISO 800 for A6500

I notice "auto tone" move up "vibrance" quite a lot in some image
would it mess up any supposedly color profile?

because color change as a result, correct?

Ben Herrmann: Like anything else, these images show the Panasonic way of rendering colors. And as it's often be stated, just about every camera made now-a-days can render colors superbly.

It is only when you shoot the same scenes (same time of day and conditions) with different brand cameras, and then compare, do you realize that colors are rendered differently by the different brands. Some camera brands tend to have a "cooler" look to their overall rendering (i.e. Panasonic), while others have a warmer tone (i.e. Fuji, Olympus, and the list goes on).

Eventually, it all becomes personal as which overall rendering you prefer. Panasonic has been very, very gradually shifting (changing) how they render their colors through the years, although they are still lacking behind some of the others with regards to capturing skin tones.

But this GX9 will sell well. It is priced quite nicely and that kit 12-60 is an optic that punches far above its weight. I may look at this one in the near future.

I guess LX5 is design by another camera team in Panasonic
no subsequent Panasonic camera jpeg color match LX5

David610: Not Canon/Nikon colours? I would have PP every image. I know half the world disagrees.

forget about DXO camera colorprofile
I can assure you DXO color profile for my A6500 look nothing like camera jpeg

i guess same for other camera model

the sensor although APS-C , IQ probably no better than MFT
but without MFT good IS, 4K, lens choice

forget it, worthless M system

for sub-frame either Sony APS-C or MFT

is it the lens or bad jpeg

the 12-60mm lens is not as sharp as my 12-32 with RAW conversion

I am talking about way below it. My 12-32 is extremely sharp in center, not so for 12-60
