  1. Except for phase detect (and I really do think for vlogging the G9's implementation of DFD can handle it), all these limitations are the same limitations of the GF9. Panasonic picked the wrong camera to base G100 on. The controls are lacking too, for the same reason.
  2. Judging from the rear of the camera and the specs, it's a re-worked GF9/GF10/GX850; so no IBIS. Sad, I really wanted a compact m4/3 camera with IBIS!
  3. I got the G9 (stills are more important for me) and it's like Christmas has come early! Really really like the G9, it's a fantastic camera and is such a joy to use.
  4. Fujifilm's X-H1 too, but you're right. That's the same comment I made on DPReview too. Not sure why APS-C doesn't get the love...
  5. Nope, otherwise Sigma, Tamron, Tokina all would've been sued to kingdom come by now.
  6. I always roll my eyes at Apple fanboy posts like this. If you like the UX of MacOS, that's fair, we all have different workflows and preferences. But Windows bashing is so old. Haven't restarted my ancient system in weeks either. And that's only because I needed to install one of the monthly updates.
  7. I've messaged Dale Baskin at DPR about him in 2017 and we exchanged a few messages. He is aware but I'm not sure if they're monitoring him.
  8. Camera announced. 1.25x crop, SD card recording is 4:2:0 8-bit. V-LogL is installed. Everything else looks really nice though. Only 1 card slot. US$1200 with the 12-60/3.5-5.6. Oh and for stills, there seems to be Live View Composite now?
  9. That'll put it too close and in some cases above the G9. Not going to happen.
  10. Alright, time to sell the GH3 and have this be the backup!
  11. Any dedicated camera is not going big; standalone sales number at 30m per year and are going down; smartphones sell 300m in a QUARTER alone. That's consumer numbers.
  12. It's a strange realm to fight though; you'd think they'd do something more consumer focused.
  13. Hey, don't underestimate what good makeup can do. Not true, there's definitely room to grow. 36mp on f/4 at m4/3 just about hits the diffraction limit, for example. That's a good question. I personally think it might be one step too far, but that's what many said of 4K vs 1080p Full HD, so who knows? Prognostication of this level is difficult, so I'm not going to attempt it. ?
  14. Oh gods I think I have found a new series of shitposts. xD
  15. People, Fujifilm moved production to China and this is a camera that's barely a month old; if you want a better chance at solid reliable cameras never buy them in the first production run or two, let alone coming from an all-new production line.
  16. @kye, in your case, it's because for UHS-I cards, Panasonic did not implement SDR104 bus speeds in the GH5, which limits UHS-I cards to the slower SD50 implementation which gives, as you can guess, 50 MB/s. As transfer rates are never 100% efficient my guess that even in the high 40s it eventually catches up and stops recording. More here: https://www.sdcard.org/developers/overview/bus_speed/
  17. Oh, you got it? How is it with the new firmware? Is AF finally usable for stills?
  18. I'm looking to upgrade to the G9, a camera that's 3/4 the price of the A7III new. So the answer to that is yes. The spec sheet doesn't tell you everything; the system and how well I like using my tools matter.
  19. Yea, that is true, they announced that some time back that it'll be a yearly show in May. Congrats on the new content. Looks like you had a good time.
  20. My sense of fun differs; as you said, it's a novelty. Try imagine using that for work.
  21. On a simpler level, I actually learnt how to use a typewriter at an early age. What a pain that was compared to using a word processor on a computer.
  22. As for the why, go to any photography forum and you can find that 80% of the old men (it's almost always old men) hate the swivel screen.

    iPhone XR, XS

    Too soon, man, too soon. I was looking forward to that one so much.
  24. Hope you've had a good drink by now! Looking forward to your next articles.
  25. According to him, this is from the first batch of shipments that just went on sale in China.
