    • @Vesku You waste all your valuable time looking at 400% enlargements, looking for grain, macroblocking and other artifacts. You devote 24 hours a day watching tests and sharing them on half-a-dozen websites and debating about the results. You pose the very same questions on those same six websites, knowing full well what the answer will be - then proceed to contradict whatever anyone says. If an expert like Curtis Judd recommends using an external microphone, you say you should be able to capture the sound of waterfalls and diesel trains on a built-in microphone smaller than a fingernail clipping. That's right - have you ever noticed how tiny that mic is? And have you noticed its placement? That's right - it's on the camera! And everyone knows that you've got to get that microphone off the camera for good sound.  It's a known fact that rec 709 was made to contain five, or at most, six stops of dynamic range, yet you insist that you're able to shoot 8-bit and see twelve stops of dynamic range on your television - six stops more than anyone else on the planet! People generously offer advice, and without fail, you tell them they're mistaken. You did not immediately tell joe12south that you'd buy the microphone he recommended. You started out by talking about how your GH4 had a better built-in microphone. In other words, a built-in microphone should be capable of professional audio quality.  Every time a new Panasonic camera is released, you do your best to find fault with it.  You nitpick everything to death, like the neck strap of the GH5. Or the lens cap.  But you don't have a single finished project to show for it. Not one. You deleted all the videos on your YouTube channel but one - a 10-second clip of lens jitter with the GH4. I understand you want people to look up to you. But experienced photographers don't waste all their time and energy on forums pointing out what's wrong with their camera. They go out and shoot. But you're not a shooter. You're a whiner. You're not even being productive. You say you're responsible for so many improvements in Panasonic cameras, you're so filled with self-importance, but you're not helping the online community with your constant complaining.   
    • Not really, but technically this drone can't make a phone call, nor can you play music, games, surf the net, etc. But, if its about taking selfies.... and you want cheap.... and you want to use your smartphone (?) May be this would be better? http://store.xcraft.io/xplusone-store-xcraft-vtol-drone-sandpoint-id/phonedrone By the way, thats $100 cheaper.  
    • Fuji camera color rendering sounds promising to me. It looks like the closest thing to film on digital bodies
    • http://www.dvinfo.net/article/acquisition/micro-43/panasonic-gh4-dr-and-gamma-timelapse-and-more.html "Cutting to the chase: 11+ stops in every gamma setting. VIVID and CINE V styles give you 10+ stops free and clear, with the 11th stop separating from black with a stretch of the shadows. All the others show 11 stops and a bit more,..." GH4 normal profiles 11+ dyn range. I think it is fair to say that GH5 has then almost 12. My TV has contrast ratio about 1:2000 - 1:4000.  1:2048 equals 11 stops and 1:4096 equals 12 stops light intensity difference. 
    • Did I say that? I said decent, realistic, pleasant. I also said to Joe that I may buy the mic he recommended. I have been very happy with GH4 internal audio. I think it is worth mentioning that GH5 has much worse frequency response than GH4. I wonder why no tester has figured it out. GH5 has bass filter (wind noise canceller). Why they want to cut bass also without it? Of course if I want professional audio or better hearing of people talking I would use directional ext mic. Actually I have one expensive Senheiser shotgun mic. What my feature suggestion you think is not not good to have. If I would be a Panasonic engineer I would be very thankful that someone thinks and suggests features and handling improvements in different situations. It is not barking. It is user feedback, maybe not very polite but it is sharing information to make our cameras better. Panasonic has actually made many of my request of improvements to happen in GH4 and GH5.
