hey, this is a wakeup call to adobe. as I do mostly video I clearly see the advantage and how fast and reliable rendering is on macs. this is why I am still using them. the test above shows that adobe seems to lag way behind in adapting their software to multi core processors. i remember how long it took until they made 64 bit available and how difficult it was making ultra large prints in photoshop (I had to use RAM swap that costed a fortune, to get hughe files with many layers done) adobe, get your act together.

Darkerlight: The fake bokeh looks okay But I cannot stand the skin colours of the iPhone. Maybe the amoled display(srgb) of my tablet is exegerating this flaw, but it looks like the guy has a sunburn.

looks terrible on my macbook pro here as well...

there has been a lengthy video by mr tony northrup on how to improve modern cameras. most advice included touch screen and smartphone-like usability. the larger sensors compete with the smaller ones with ease. but usability should quickly improve. personally I do like the panasonic UI, touch focus etc. and mr t.n. had a whole bunch of very good ideas the camera makers should pick up. (will post video if I find it) the level of detail from small sensors is still far from good. 1" improves things a lot. there was the pana CM10. that thing with todays tech plus computational imaging...

Too bad they didn't use a short flange distance. I would love getting a foveon camera as some of the images have a certain magic. Can't buy into anotber mount: do run nikpn ff & m43ds. So please sigma: think of doing a model with a shorter flange and male adapters possible. I might even get a small pancake with your special mount...

Amateur Hour: The whole of 'pop' art seems to be based on celebrity more than anything. Marcel DuChamp proved you could attach your signature to an ordinary urinal and proclaim it as 'art', originality be damned. This is why the Warholians are making a preemptive strike. They know they can be seen as standing on thin ice.

even the urinal was stolen from elsa freytag von loringhoven as was discovered from a letter to duchamps sister. long after the death of all witnesses he calimed the legendary work as his.

iheza: People complaining about the size and weight of this camera really are a bunch of ignorant nitwits. This is a flagship workhorse camera for professionals who need a tough, reliable and weather sealed camera with lots of connectivity (full size hdmi) and spacious ergonomics for long handheld use. If you want a smaller camera and don't need all these advanced video features then Panasonic offers them too (GX80/85 for example). Or go buy a smaller Sony camera that overheats in 10 minutes and doesn't have 25% of the video features the GH5 has. This camera pushes the boundaries of what a mirrorless camera can do and it will force other companies to step up their game and innovate like Panasonic has. This camera is king. *bows down

heat dissipation is crucial, therefor a large body essential. I'd like to see a smaller version of the fabulous gx8 though....

zos xavius: Awesome. Now it will print 2 prints before the nozzles clog! ;)

it is said the machine only cloggs when used seldom: I printed a lot and hat lots of trouble. I am glad the machine died a few weeks ago and will look for a different brand now. even though the bigger machines are said to be better... thi was too much of a hassle.

sjstremb: I found this nugget from the Epson Minister of Propaganda an interesting/amusing bit: “The SureColor P5000 is a replacement to the last Epson Stylus® Pro model still available – the renowned Epson Stylus Pro 4900." Renowned for clogging-head failure, exactly what was it renowned for.... and I say that as an owner of a 4900.

the 4900 just died on me. no more epson.

Henry Falkner: My Super8 reels showed up during my clear-out last year. Did they survive? I can't remember. I wonder who will us the Super8 re-incarnation. I won't.

oh, mine are being stored and will survive all my digital files. too bad they are not very good. you could have sent your work to some of the museums that collect analog movies. valuable historic material.

sounds like good news. I am amazed how incredible the dji products are. they leave me almost speechless. with hasselblad cameras on drones there is a holw new perspective for affordable highest quality aerial imaging. looking forward to this very much. the new xd1 is a phantastic product as well. might be a bright future for hasselblad.

On article A comfortable fit: Panasonic Lumix GX850 overview (119 comments in total)

I am still using the first version, now with the lovely pana 15mm. it is fast, reliable, costs almost nothing if obtained body only. the flip screen is very practical for shooting from lowe angles, from the hip or from the floor which I often do. and yes: it's nice doing a high quality selfie with ones love. as stated in the review: the pana touch screen menues are simply excellent. the buttons are assignable. I assigned toe wifi button for swithching between mf and af. and yes: the wifi works well, the only downside: one has to turn off the touch screen as it otherwise confuses the camera if one touches the screen. I wish this update would have the 20mp sensor and the GH5 would have a 24 - 28 mp resolution and higher DR. nevertheless, it's a beautiful simple camera.

please make time lapse and single frame shooting available!

it's not just about a "look" always. film has much higher logevity. it let's you shoot more consciously as the footage is really limited. I'd prefer some new system with 16mm cartridges. Watch how beautiful "Carol" turned out to be, entirely shot on super16.

lylejk: Here's the better idea. Take someone's digicam output and convert it into Super-8 format. That service would get you much more film business I bet. :)

film has global shutter by it's nature

time lapse, single frame would be nice. would also be cool to revive 16mm this way. bolex for the digital age. I have been shooting tons of S-8 with my bauer cameras as well as many others, so I'd give it a try.
