    Where did the 200Mbs and 25MBs come from?

    What they need is a class system where cameras could be known as something
    like Class 1 (expensive processional cameras), Class 2, Class 3, etc. At
    the moment they seemed to be grouped as Professional, Consumer
    professional. (Consumer priced camera with some processional features),
    Consumer (easy to use camera with a few useful features)

  3. This appears to be true, and often higher profit-margin cameras
    (with bigger marketing budgets, too...;-) get preference (and
    dpreview has begun to sell cameras, which may now influence what
    they tend to review...). So far, I've not put any advertising
    on my website, or external sales through it (although I've been
    approached to do so). I realized long ago that camera magazines
    (and similar for other categories) were generally thinly-disguised

  4. "200Mbps" came from the GH4 spec sheet, and my "slipping"
    typing finger and my currently-feeble brain conspired to
    turn it into "Mbs"...;-) As for 25MBps (not "MBs"!),
    8Mb = 1 MB, so 200Mbps = 25MBps (maybe.......;-).

  5. I'd rather have the words, Professional, Prosumer, Consumer. Much more
    meaningful than 1, 2, 3 to my feeble mind.

    Although I do think prosumer is a fairly ugly coinage :)

    BTW, I used the term "ILC", but there are at least two or three other
    terms I've seen (and gotten confused by until I learned them) for those
    cameras. The only one I can think of right now is "hybrid". That one
    confused me at first. Actually, it still does, come to think of it :)

    Yes Ive heard of those terms. Some seem to be on the border line between
    Prosumer and Professional. For example the Nikon 7000 and Nikon 7100 DSLR
    camera has been termed a Professional camera in some parts of the internet
    and in other parts its termed a Prosumer. Can we say that all cameras that
    have a full sized sensor are termed processional. Sometimes the manufacture
    gives a term to his camera in the advert which is helpful.
