The first sign of Apple's reaction to the pressure was the battery discount, the second is this one. All done by the book... In every aspect...

Acadie4Me: Apple, Schmapple! What a terrible company to deal with!

I had to get my Macbook repaired. Two Apple Stores, neither had the part. A week to ten days to get the new part in (Canada). I offered to pay for express shipping. No can do! Apple only has one shipping method. And, by the way, the part will be refurbished. But I want new! No, you can't have new. But I am prepared to pay for a new part. No, we can't sell you a new part, only refurbished. And by the way, you MUST agree to the terms on this form, before we accept your computer for repair. And the form says Apple accepts no legal responsibility for misuse of my personal data by its employees. Since my computer was unbootable, I had no way to remove my personal data before allowing them to repair it. So, Apple can't afford to take the risk that its employees might misbehave, but apparently its perfectly OK to coerce the customer into taking the risk. What a bureaucracy! I will never buy another Apple product!

If you cannot deal with corporate culture, just avoid it to prevent your mental health.

Any measure taken in any industry is profitable unless if a measure is penalty as a (miscalculated) result of violating some law.

Quality comes at a price...
The price is higher when product is aimed to limited clientele.
Limited clientele is happy with this.

aris14: System un ...wise it's a great cam.
System wise is affordable too comparing similar gear and equipment needed to produce similar results either in APS or FF.
Btw APS was a system born of necessity mainly for cost reasons from existing manufacturers thus adopting all "good and bad" assets inherited from analogue ancestors. Generally speaking 4/3 and M43 is more dedicated and trouble free in a way paying nil attention to all gadget/techno oriented people who in a way deal or make a living from photography at least as it was perceived/comprehended some 10 years ago.

I like your perception...

multisystem: I'm more of an Olympus guy than a Panasonic guy but the reason that DPR gave a silver to the G9 is illogical. It's as if DPR just did it as click bait. 500+comments indicate they succeeded. Anyway, buyers should disregard the awards and points scored and just read the text detail of the review whenever they are looking at any camera.

@Barney Britton

..."there's a link in the conclusion page"...
Fact, but it is too general, despite the numerous details mentioned...
Meaning that a bridge cam has a ceiling performance compared to let's say an APS cam and an M43 to an MF.
In that case a Bridge cam could never surpass in some factors an FF cam, so its rating would be, let's say, between 250 and 500 units while an FF cam would start from 650 and an MF from 1000 etc etc...
But this is just my opinion.

Problem is that no editorial group in any sector of technical press is willing to present the percentage of contribution of any measured parameter of a product.
It's even rare to establish any code suggesting the cost of use of any product in a foreseeable future based upon manufacture's data (not speculation) or stats based on real life (I haven't ever seen anything published like the latter).

Marty4650: Three things easily explain this:

1. Product Maturity - new ones aren't much better than older ones
2. Market Saturation - everyone who wants one has one
3. Consumer Preference - No longer stylish to be the camera guy

Incidentally, the exact same factors are slowing down smartphone sales too. It happens to all tech products over time.

Mature approach Marty, well put and said. At this moment manufacturers have to face the maturity era. So they have to produce dedicated products as well all rounders. Their main weapon for these options is only innovation.

I think it's a clever move from Pana showing that they can listen and adopt to buyers demands and needs. I think that videowise this cam targets equally to buyers with ease to operate priority as well to buyers who need speed and quality in controlled environments.

aris14: 4,614 voters is a very very small number.

@RadPhoto
I am not fanboy of any manufacturer. What I am saying is that comparing the number of responses to the number of DPR members the percentage of the voters is extremely low. This said I also avoid to interpret it as a fact. That's all.

@RubberDials
I see what you mean. My aspect is that everyone who likes to be exposed acting as a fanboy should be banned. But this is my opinion.

It's not happening in DPR , it happens in every board/forum/social media. Moderation cannot be applied since there are no specific guidelines/rules as to what it is considered acceptable. More than that moderation costs and affects both payroll and clicks, i.e advertisement income. As simple as that. Btw, as for 6300 it is obvious that some manufacturers pay minor concern in design.
