dpfan32: And again: way more expensive than the predecessor...
And what replaces the FZ1000 in its price range???
It's like buying an iPhone for 800€ and next year they charging 1200€ for their improved model...
It's ridiculous...
Camera maker don't want to produce affordable cameras anymore.
Their target market seems to be only enthusiasts who are willing to pay more than 1000€ for a camera. Let the others shoot with their phones...

Good features on new cameras is always welcome.
When let's say a Sony A6000 was announced the had all the bells and whistles of that time. And it costed far less than the A6500 today at launch.
Having latest features does not mean more expensive.
But maybe the 500-1000 EUR market is not existent anymore... Enthusiast want the best of the best and are ready to pay. But just for the hobby I don't want to put several thousands of Euro in gear; When you make money out of it, than maybe it's OK.
So I'm considering to pull the trigger on cameras like GX80, G7, FZ1000 or A6000.... The last higher-mid-range cameras at an affordable price.

look at the ISO3200 pic of the dog. It's a watercolor painting in JPEG :P
Why can't Panasonic handle that sensor like Sony do...?

This is true though... But I think it's all about making more and more money. You shouldn't worry about the camera manufacturer managers get poor ;)
That's how the business works. Let's see how far they will get with their new camera-must-be-expensive-tactics...

CaPi: I would have given the same recommendations.. Personally I don't like the out of camera jpegs of the Sony.. D3300 could really use an upgrade of the autofocus system.

I think the low end mirrorless market is gone with the wind...
They want us to pay 1000+ € ... no but thanxxx a lot

What's the point... they have Snapseed...

First iPhone that got worse image quality from it's predecessor :(
Or the test shot is not focussed....
The Pixel XL shows perfect sharpness!

In reply to:

Lee Saxon: Are they just aping the appearance of the Canon, like the new Voigtlander 58 does the Nikon Ai ? Or does it actually rip off the optical design? I'm not a *huge* fan even of the former, but if it's the latter DPReview should not be promoting it (even if the patent is technically expired).

Moral or not it's all business. And is it moral from Canon to sell overpriced lenses when you could make them cheaper (Sigma/Tamron) ;)

Link | Posted on Nov 4, 2016 at 05:16 UTC

LUMIX DMC-CM1 photos are out of focus.
iPhone 7 photos are not well focused too...
But the Pixel quality isr really outstanding in terms of details!

Tim McClanahan: I'm not impressed by the camera overall, but check out that battery life - this thing is a champ beyond all comparison there. What did they do to get that kind of battery life?

Battery life would be even greater because with this stripped down version of a DSLR camera you can't do much anyway...

User8303410032: I remember that when I bought my Canon 600D, I was almost going to purchase the Nikon D3200 as the kit was cheaper but the 50mmf1/8 a bit more expensive.
But I wanted bracketing and I see that this line still doesn't have it,
I've been told later that nikon offer such a nice RAW quality and exposure range that I would not need bracketting with it...
I can't understand something that is pure software thing, without any hardware cost is not available on those models.
Anyone knows why Nikon does this,
It let me believe that they are so affraid the next line up is so bad it would lose Customer on their own products.

WTH? Even no bracketing?!?! Oh comon Nikon...packing a high-end sensor in an unusable body....

Canon 750D is not at the same price point and has so much more to offer feature wise....
I mean ... no sensor cleaning?!?! Hello Nikon!?!?!
No Touch Screen?
No articulating screen?
Only one cross type af-sensor?

OK better image quality... when you compare side by side IS0 3200/6400 yes Nikon is better.. but only on a direct comparison. The average user won't mind; Pixel peeper pros have a fullframe anyway.

So whick package is better? I think Canon's ... right now of course.

In reply to:

sunilkumar: why they did not use 20 MP sensor?

Because finally they have some differentiation between higher end models and lower end models :) In the past they had all the same picture quality, no matter it was a GX7 or a GF7. Now these good times are gone..

In reply to:

JosephScha: About the gallery: the OOC JPEGs look good, but man, the latter comparisons of OOC JPEG to what you managed to pull out of the RAW file are a really strong demonstration of the benefits that you can (or might) get from shooting RAW and developing with care - on a calibrated monitor.

I dint like Panasonic JPEG at all ... Sony jpeg have too strong contrast and sometimes on the cool side with white balance. Canon JPEG are too soft... I shoot RAW... but usually don't have the time to develop photos for month LOL

Mateus1: Can't Panasonic improve the colours ???
Panasonic makes really great cams... but the colours are just shits.

Blue is sometimes more blue than it should be, red drifts into orange... not nice... Canon has IMHO the best colors.
A matter of taste :)

In reply to:

dpfan32: A price increase compared to the G7 is ridiculous.... cameras keep getting more and more expensive!
And than they are crying about everybody using cameraphones instead. This camera should be priced the same as the predecessor.
Technical improvements over time should not meat higher and higher prices.

Ok seems that there are lots of milk cows around for the camera manufacturers....

Jefftan: lightweight and cheap
20 megapixel latest generation sensor

This is what MFT camera should be
Look at what direction Olympus and Panasonic taking
Professional
which translate expensive and heavy

I still can't figure out how can they brainwash people to accept
professional and last generation sensor

Yeah you are 100% right:
New Sony A6300 almost twice the price of A6000.
New Panasonic G80 much more expensive than G70.
No more Pansonic GM1/5 GF7 cheap successors.

Olympus only recycled PL7 parts in a new ugly body

In reply to:

NAwlins Contrarian: I cannot see spending $699 or buying a 'serious' camera that doesn't have a built-in viewfinder. Yes, this is cheaper than the RX100 Mks. III and IV, but the limitation posed by the lack of a built-in viewfinder is, IMO / for my use, a 'swim, swim, and sink at the shore' proposition for what is otherwise a very appealing camera.

Long lives my RX100 I I bought 2013 for 450€... this price range is a thing of the past... they let the people shooting with their phones instead of offering a reasonable priced alternative...
