Fast Zoom: What you need to know about Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-FZ300

Is this manufacturer out of touch with reality?
This is 2015 after all. Not 1995, not 2005, but really 2015!

I just don’t know what question to ask:

Why are we here talking about, reading about 1/2″ sensor cameras?
Why is a Walmart camera being featured here?
Why do they even make this camera with a 1/2″ sensor?

Why are you all so enthused about tiny-sensor cameras, still, in 2015, when we know better? If they were so good, they wouldn’t have lost half their marketshare to smartphones. 1/2″ sensor cameras aren’t exactly flying off the shelves anymore, and for good reason.

DPR is a serious website, about photography and great cameras and gear.
Maybe there needs to be something front and center, to better educate teh neophytes, so as to put pressure and better influence manufacturers. Pushing for better quality from the bottom up, instead of just accepting this outdated configuration pushed top down.
