    • Internal stabilization, non-electronic lenses, and speed boosters
      I note we have a growing array of cameras with internal stabilization---offering stabilization even with non-electronic lenses--like FD lenses, or Rokinon lenses, etc. When these cameras allow shooting with this non-electronic lenses the camera's stabilization asks a simple and reasonable question: "what are you?" And the lens, vis a vis the videographer, responds, "I'm a 35mm lens, or an 85mm lens, or a ...whatever." And the camera responds accordingly, the shooter shoots, and the rest is history. I promise I'm getting to my question---but I have to make one more observation: when such a non-electronic lens is coupled to the camera with a speed booster it is no longer functioning as what it originally was: a 35mm lens or 85, or 135mm lens,  whatever. Right? Now, here's my question---does the internally stabilized camera "know" the lens is coupled by a speed booster and adjusts internally accordingly? Or does it not know and the stabilization is negatively affected? Or, does it make no difference in regard to the stabilization? Hmmmm....I'm sorry. I think that's three questions. Why am I asking this? It's simple: I'm asking this because non-electronic lenses, in my admittedly limited experience, do not seem as stable when mounted with a speed booster as they are when they are simply mounted with a simple mount to an internally stabilized camera. I guess a final question might be, "Am I wrong about this perception or is this a consideration that needs to be....well, uh,...considered? Would love to have the best stabilization possible with non-electronic, speed booster mounted lenses!

    • Panasonic and Bad Timing
      Restructuring a business unit doesn't mean suppressing the activity behind the division, it's just a corporate management thing. Might not necessarily be a bad thing if it brings more innovation, cost reduction and keep the finance department under control. It's better to act before hand than letting a division die or appear vulnerable internally. So far we don't know the details, there could be a lot of internal "politics".
      And yes, 60k units sold over a year is not that much for a company with 250,000 employee (btw where did that sales number come from ?)
      In that type of business, the manufacturer get a third of the sales price, the retailer another third and the production cost the last third. For a $2000 camera, Pana margin is something like $600 x 60,000 units = $36 millions which is a drop over its $62 billions/ year revenue

      It has all been one unit for a year now already.
