    This is also quite interesting, though I suspect it's jpeg only. Similar to Olympus live composite?

    "Finally, the new Light Composition mode again uses the camera's 30 frames per second 8MP image capability, this time to create a composite image. The mode uses only the brightest value from a series of frames you select, so scenes such as fireworks displays can be created from multiple images." - dpreview

    Nah, don't really use PB to charge. But cos I tend to use a usb charger with 6 ports, so if only need to bring this one thing to charge multiple devices, that would be ideal. Yeah, I like having spare batts too.

    USB charging though seen as a gimmick by some is important to me as it can be a life saver as I bring a power bank with me out on the go anyway

    I assume 8MP is pulled out from their 4K feature, hence jpeg.

    In parallel, Panasonic introduces the new flash DMW-FL200L , guide number 20.

    Following the pattern of GX80 own design, it integrates seamlessly with a compact automatic / manual body very versatile. This flash is capable of producing a bounce lighting up to 90 vertically, to generate diffused light. In addition, it is equipped with LED light to use a hybrid photo / video.

    It also has wireless capability shot allowing the possibility to get a more powerful lighting adding up to three groups of flash.

    At the moment the price and availability of this new flash unit is unknown.

    Question : Can you power the camera from an external USB Power pack (like those for mobile phones), say if your battery dies?

    With the A7S, cannot. The usb port is only for charging.

    Still gotta use the DC coupler for powering the camera, so the workaround that I've seen is to find a usb power pack that also supports DC output at 9/12V@2A. The average USB power packs we carry usually do 5V, too low for camera I think.

    Btw, I think Agrivar knows can charge, so he was asking specifically about powering the camera with powerbank when the battery is depleted

    My guess is with 12-32 kit - SGD1099
    Street price should be in the range of SGD1020 with extra SD card, Batt and Bag

    Body only - SGD899
    Street price about SGD770

    Depends , but this model isn't a top tier model so chances are higher that it will come as a body/lens package.
