  1. My only question about this would be why? There is better offering out there in the price range – or am I missing something.

    • I don’t know much about it but I think video is the key. I suspect it is a specialised type of camera competing with the Lumix GH5, for instance. Not on my radar, then.

      • Its video – so not mine then. I still think that photo stills camera’s and video devices should be separate items – as the one fix does all seems to compromise one or the other. Even Leica realised this with the M10 range and dropped video.

        • Hi, I agree. If you want non-enthusiast video use your smartphone. I you want video start with the video centric Panasonic GH5 and work your way up in price. I wish still centric cameras would get rid of cost, heat dissipation issues, complexity of video.

          • You are right on this, Brian. An extreme example is the M — a camera beloved of stills shooters. No one buys an M specifically for video and I haven’t met anyone who uses video on an M in preference to a more suitable video platform. Video was added to the M240 because Leica thought it was necessary to offer the feature in order to sell cameras. They were wrong.
