RobertG_Berlin: For whom is this camera?

Since it It lacks
- microphone input
- remote control socket and
- cannot control an off camera flash by itself

All these things are covered by the G6 for 300 EUR, which I use and like - despite the shutter shock issues.

So the GX85 is for the occassional walk in the park shooter only?!
Quite a dissapointing overall package.

GX1 and GX7 have the remote shutter release socket at least and flash on GX7 works as master as well. The Wifi-App is not a replacement for the remote shutter socket, as it drains battery on 2 devices and you cannot hook your 100m reach RF release to it nor the infra-red motion trigger thing I have. o(

I hate how manufacters exchange features from cam to cam, you will never be able to buy the perfect camera it seems. o(

It is not for professionals or advanced shooters. It is for people who want a cam that gets you great video and still IQ straight of the cam. A rahter large group.

In reply to:

caravan: So this is nearly double the money of the a6300 because it has two Sd slots ?

Read right now on the Sony forum. A guy has returned three a6300s because it freezes (well...overheats is really what happens) and this is not in video. It is in 80-90 degree weather shooting stills. And even here he is not the only one. the Northrups had exactly the same thing in 75 dgree weather...Sorry: inexusable to my mind.

Samuel......many people I know can dream while their Sony A6300 takes a nap in the 20 C heat t cannot bare....User interface is awful. It is completely beyond me how a cam that is known to be so unreliable in particular in video can be called " a dreammachine"..Reliabily and usability at least to me are extremely important.

In reply to:

RuthC: The title of your excellent capture, 'Anger Released' is very appropriate, Jorginho, and it has earned for you a well-deserved second place in this weekly challenge. We see many dramatic pictures of lighting strikes, but your picture appears so much closer and brighter than most, giving us details of the turbulent, angry clouds hiding another lightning strike, waiting to shake the house foundations and prompt the family dog to hide under the beds. The almost black and white image add to the drama.
Ruth :-)

Thx for the positive comment and that fact that you seemed to enjoy it!

This pic was shown in the National Dutch News weatherforecast, the regional news, various internetmedia and indeed articles about the dreadfull results opened with this picture to be honest even when it was about another province.

I was thrilled since this was shot form inside the car, behind the screen which I accidentally just cleaned from the inside with carwash fluid for the wipers. So the screen was superclean, no rain fell and I was cramming the cam down to prevent movement. Fortunate to get this result for sure!

jl_smith: Too many tools in these DPR comments, it's sad. Why must everyone always equate any other format to FF? Who cares? If the shooter wants to shoot FF, then they'll shoot FF. If they want m43, they'll shoot that. Same for APS-C.

These equivalence dorks don't seem to realize there are a ton of benefits and drawbacks to *any* system, and every shooter is an individual and will rank these pros and cons differently.

Instead of realizing this and maybe, just maybe contributing something useful to the conversation, they echo the same crud they do in every...other...story that isn't whatever their chosen format is.

Why? Is f1.4 12 mm glass cheaper to make for FF or m43s? No. It is like saying Should FF sensors be as cheap as mFT sensors? No...they use more of the same material with lower yields per wafer. It is much more expensive. Same with lenses.

Link | Posted on Jun 15, 2016 at 15:23 UTC

Hefty in many ways it is not for me, but it adds another probably very good lens to this expanding system. A specialist lens this time around for sure, but het mFT manufacturers at least knows a system means bodies AND lenses...

Error in the text: in eshuttermode it (sadly!) falls back to 10bit and while you write it is not so bad since shuttershock is a thing of the past, it is not so nice when you want to shoot timelapses...And eshutter is much nicer then and 10bit is not so nice...

In reply to:

DavidNJ100: This test should have included the A6300. If it had, the GH4 would not have been the best video camera.

Sidebar: poor ergonomics and lack of accessories (e.g., third party flashes, I live by my lithium battery Godox flashes) hurts the A6300, but it is half the price of the D500 and 95% of the performance.

Beyond that, the D500 is only $500 less than the D750. There are somethings the D500 may be better at, but not many. Remember, the D750 has a crop sensor mode and can get full frame DOF on video.

A6300 overheats in video, even the manual says so. That is a great addition to the GH4 I guess...Batterylife on the GH4 is fantastic too (not mentioned). A host of excellent and native lenses, great ergonomics, flipyscreen for video is another nice addition over the A6300. It focusses better in low light easily, does even focustrack on low light.
I am actually very happy for two years now with the GH4. There is this lust for HiRes Oly but only when it becomes really usable for landscapes and GX80 IBIS would be nice but that is going to be a GH5 thing.
What people should expect by now is Sony getting a grip on that overheating in video and start making excellent native NEX lenses.

In reply to:

vesa1tahti: How would you compare this with E-M10 II? Is there any difference in IQ? Thanks.

IQ depends on a lot of things. Just look at its IQ when shooting action and Oly's. It will do so much better because it can AF continuously where the Oly struggles...a lot. So it is better in video and for sure is more versatile in stills too. Does the EM10II have 3 or 5 axis otherwise it is GX85 too here...

I am sure dpreview finds a way to give GX85 a silver award. When a reviewer fails to recognise 4K plus that stabilisation at such a price point as a huge bonus clearly distinguishing it from the Sony...That says enough to me. He was glad to take 1,4 Kg cam equipment with him D750+ lens....Wouldn't it be easier to have another 2-3 batteries with him? For sure battery life is an issue, I agree. But 200 gram or 7 times of that to save the day...

On article 2016 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras around $500 (195 comments in total)

It is a mystery to me how dpreview seriously says that the Sony A5100 is an incredibly compact cam etc in their final sentences. We are talking interchangeble lenses and we really know that many lenses of the Sony are far from being compact let alone being good. You'd expect more from any reviewer than just make the mistakes firsttime buyers make buy going for the body and forget about the importance of lenses.....

On article Benchmark Performance: Nikon D810 review (1984 comments in total)

So G7 and GX8 hang for shuttershock. Because otherwise they were just stellar in their class. Silver. Both have workarounds, but alas....

Nikon has shuttershock too with workarounds. Yet it gets cold. While I understand we cannot just compare one cam over another it is clear shuttershock has caused the Panny's to get silver. Wonder how Nikon gets away with this...

The old fashioned guys may use a Nikon, too.

True. When I browse trough the various offers, it seems that GX85 from what I read is probably the best deal out there but they assume a lot. In essence they haven't tested it yet..

Androole....I was may be overdoing it a bit. A bit. But it says so in their handbook of the cam I have been told. It is also noted in this review....So after 5 yrs this is somehow acceptabel, where others do not have such a problem at all....Well...Must be me I guess.

Well I disagree nathto. First of all Xtrans is not a sensor made by Fuji. It is a different kind of Sony sensor to be sure. Also A6300 is more capable since it does give you 4K video and nice warm and comfy hands to go with that so no gloves needed which makes video-operation so much more enjoyable. Sony has been making this feature for 5 years now and no one seems to be able to catch up.
The A6300 is a very good cam. Only point is that its downsides are downplayed by reviewers over here while of some other cams they are making a huge point of some minor issues that can be circumvented...
