"Are the ones sub $1500 worth a damn?" At about half the price, I'm pretty sure it would be a good choice. The problem is that it does not look like a camcorder.

I think my LX100 is pretty good due to the larger m4/3 sensor. There are not very many to pick from in the "affordable" group.

I've not done any projects where I've needed to sync audio tracks. What I think I know is based on reading. Apparently, most NLEs move all tracks in time lengths equal to a frame. Occasionally the...

Good demonstration. I've had the H1 on my B&H wish list. But, never had a big enough excuse to buy it. One of these days a granddaughter will be performing something and I'll need it bad enough to...

I bought a Panasonic LX100 as my entry to 4K. It has worked well for me. It has been selling well for awhile and may soon drop (more) in price with a rumoured LX200 coming. Current price is about...

I do the same as Joe, but with a much cheaper Kindle Fire to play YouTube or Vimeo files. It can hold and play videos, but there is not a lot of room. There is no card slot.

Ken (and anybody else!),

Other than what you shoot yourself, what are you using for entertaining 4K content? Is it pretty much limited to Netflix?

I've got one. I've not "tested" the difference. However, I would doubt the claim. How low does the light need to be for HD to be an improvement over 4K?
