On article Panasonic Lumix DC-GX9: What you need to know (198 comments in total)

Why did they make the EVF smaller. GX8 had an excellent evf and worked well for those of us with glasses. But at least I oersnally welcome the titly LCD since this seems like astill camera since they nixed the mic port

chrisno: terrible choice removing articulating screen
and a 30% drop in battery life is absolutely nono

There have been several polls on this. The results seem to come out about 50/50. I would love to see an option for either type of LCD just like there is an option for black or silver body, or better yet, invent some type of hydrid design to make everyone happy.

Excellent decision to bring back the titly screen. I can’t stand articulating screens. But poorer battery life and no weather sealing isnot good.

On photo Mom's 95th Birthday in the Reunion challenge (4 comments in total)

Excellent. Looks like a family where people actually love each other - like the Waltons πŸ˜‰

I notice this was taken in 2007. So i expect no more birthdays πŸ™. My mom made it to 92 1/2 and maintained a healthy glow up to about 91 when I tookher picture at her birthday party. Then the modern disease of dimentia began to take over....

Albert Valentino: Good summary of features and benefits. Close enough to me that they deserve the same award status. Yet, DPR rates the G9 as Silver and the EM1.2 as Gold πŸ€”

Yes, but they represent the same generation of technology, sensor, IBIS...

As they used to say about pre-marital sex, β€˜why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free’. It will be nice to see a video where Upsplash Gets drowned πŸ˜‰

Ergo607: "Discussions have focused, in part, on how future incidents like this can be avoided, " ==> just stop racing altogether...

There is a purpose. It is called fun. Not for everyone and it clearly requires skill and experience and being responsibly enpugh to understand the risks. Guard rails are a good way to avoid this type of thing - which is what we have on most driver roads

Yeah, this goes on. They say it is the oldest profession, aside from farming. i have an open mind about prostitution, but not about human trafficing and slavery which is a deplorable act.

I wonder what the suicide rate is? But I doubt anyone there keeps statistics or even cares.

jwkphoto: I remember way back in the olden times, 10 to 18 years ago, it was suggested to use a card equal to the number of images I could get on one roll of film, basically 12, 24 or 36 exposures. The reason was the card could go bad and loosing 36 exposures is not as bad as loosing a hundred or more. In all my years of photographing portraits and real estate photography I never had a card go bad.

Yeh, but they can go bad. Fortunately, it is rare and last 16 years of use, I never had a problem. But I have known people that did. I own two 32gb cards which is more than plenty.

They left out Photo Ninja as a raw converter. One of the best for Fuji XTrans sensor

I recently replced my iPhone 6 with an iPhone 8. One of the reasons was it was becoming dog slow. My most used App, the Weather Channel, became unusable over the past 4 or 5 months and I had to replace it with another weather app. So things are okay now but i will need to learn how to use the proper setting that does not dump it down.

I also remember several years ago, when I was happily using an iPad 2. I then updated to the latest IOS and my iPad became almost uselss and too aggravating to use. Apple did an update of the OIS and it became usable but still aggravating so I had to sell it.

These planned obsolescence features sicken me ☹️
