On article Opinion: Canon EOS 750D and 760D (298 comments in total)

Interesting take. I'd like to know whether Canon is foregoing a replacement for the 70D which has the stale sensor and image quality.

I think the model without the extra features won't sell very well until the price gap increases between it and the S.

Paul Kersey Photography: Unfortunately this appears to be more of a special use camera than the preceding model. That said, it isn't the ideal successor. Makes the old model new again, especially at lower pricing.

I get what you are saying but I could live with the E-M5's features and performance at $599. I had the E-M1 and it was a bit of overkill for my new point and shoot attitude.

Post-processing is cause of some reduction of detail, however, was intended for its look.

Paul Kersey Photography: can't wait for the warm weather so I can harass people with this. Seriously though, regulating usage of these devices is a must, or need I start shooting them outa the sky?

I was pleased to see the FAA will have regulations out very shortly. About time. Of course, my words were in jest, however, underscore my own thoughts on controlling the movement and usage of airspace.

Paul Kersey Photography: In the lab, this camera looks great. having said that, and I have used many Panasonic m43s over the years, the real world output Raw files have consistently been pedestrian.

If Panasonic would use a Sony sensor like that used in the Nex-6, now then you would have the ideal camera for casual shooting.

I stopped at GH-2, after GF-1, G-1, G-2 and G-3 and GX-1. The reviews continued to point out the lack of progress image-wise and then, alas, the Olympus sensor arrived on the scene. I wouldn't mind having the GX-7 with a 14 and/or 20mm, for black & white, however, at $899, there are some respectable options (even if more $$ are needed for a good lens).

A good use of an m43 sensor. One can live with the sensor limitations when using this in lieu of a point and shoot and/or iPhone.

This camera ought to come with 20 years of internal re-tooling as the technology marches on.

nunatak: Panasonic has done a nice job with this camera. Nikon could stand to learn from Panasonic's engineering ... including better battery performance, focus peaking/zebra, and 4K too.

kudos to Panasonic for delivering such a high value product at such a low price point.

Here's an excerpt from TheImagingResource website review of the GH4, " Hue. The Panasonic GH4 shifts orange toward yellow and cyan toward blue, but most other hue shifts are quite minor. The typical Panasonic yellow to green shift and desaturation is still present, though not as pronounced as some prior Lumix models. The GH4's mean "delta-C" color error after correction for saturation is 5.34 for JPEGs at the base ISO of 200 (100 is an extended ISO). That's about average these days, and color error remains quite stable throughout the ISO range except at the highest ISO setting where it jumps to 6.51. Hue is "what color" the color is."
And, perhaps more telling of differing opinions, "While the Panasonic GH4 certainly brings lots of upgrades in terms of video capabilities, it's not altogether much different from the GH3 in terms of still image quality. Housing a similar 16MP sensor..."

I suppose you are right concerning the 4K, but, really, Nikon is the best DSLR line in my view when it comes to pure still image quality. Panasonic conversely, has a storied history of challenges when it comes to handling of the nuances of colors and a notoriously flawed approach to noise reduction.

Paul Kersey Photography: Videographers can rejoice, dedicated still shooters are better served elsewhere. Cool for Panasonic to pick a lane that they can dominate in m43land. The a6000, not renowned for high ISO performance, looks better than GH4 at 1600. That's the rub on m43, close, but always will trail larger sensors.

This new model along with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 have lost their way in terms of size. They no longer are diminutive cameras that punch above their weight. As such, comparisons to DSLRS becomes inevitable. And when you do that comparison, you have serious completion on the still image side of things(my only interest).

Let me clarify; today's m43 image quality satisfies the needs and expectations of many. Let's face it, m43 has arguably the greatest and most versatile line of mirror-less glass, save for the possibility of Fujifilm's rise to that title. With the best glass, the GH4 provides a good challenge to the better APS-C advanced iterations. As has been pointed out, the performance gap is narrowing. My point is the a $598 Sony a6000 will give you the same, no more, in terms of Raw file image quality, albeit requiring something better than kit lenses.
There is no comparison on the video end of things. I am in the group of people that Never use video so, the GH4 is to be respected for its advancements but doesn't motivate me to buy. I owned the GH1, G1, G3, GF-1, GX-1 and they were all nice cameras plagued by the noise that is no longer quite as problematic for the Panasonic sensor.

Meh. Panasonic never disappoints with its higher than true value approach to camera pricing on new models. Eventually, the price plummets and they become decent buys.

The pictures show no surprises, better than 1"sensor,below APS-C.
