Ashkanani: Woow as usual Nikon and Sony are the best on papers and reviews!But in real life, when you want it to be done and in perfect way Canon are the best!even Barney (dpreview) when he wanted to capture all the moments on his vecation with the building his boat stuff he took 80D!
You know why? Because he knows very well how easy and simplifed it is to shoot with it !
Let the Nikon and Sony fans enjoy pixel zooming in there 4K video when the owners of Canon 80D get the shoot done in sec with there fingers focusing in perfect way!
Barney took the 80d because it was sponsored event for Canon. Canon set it up in other words.
steelhead3: Not to put a damper on Mr. Yuyan but the possession of a Polar Bear tooth is illegal in the US unless you are one of the exempted native people in Alaska.
Yes I did after I wrote the piece, if he documented that he purchased the tooth from a Native and it has been altered to a jewelry item, it is legal. It does keep the killing of protected animals in a state of flux as the profit motive for collectors continues the slaughter. I am sure Ivory dealers will love this distinction.
I knew a person who tied flies with Polar Bear fur in Salem Oregon who went to jail for his crime. Just because it is for sale (drugs?) does not make it legal.
He is an urbanite from Seattle whose family immigrated from Russia. He enjoys playing mountain man (nothing wrong with that) but still is held accountable to US Fish & Wildlife rules under the Endangered Species act.

You looked pretty experienced paddling Barney...can you roll? I really enjoyed the video. Now for an observation on the camera, the colors seemed a little oversaturated, is that your doing or the camera?
Pootle2: Does the Sony actually beat the Nikon 1 in autofocus???
Nikon 1 is a 1" sensor (4x smaller than full frame). the 5100 is aps-c
I am a little confused...shooting at 14fps on the 1dxII, I thought it was only jpeg (not raw+jpeg) or is that the 1dx?
steelhead3: I hope the reviewers will get into the few problems that the 500 exhibits and not whitewash the hiccups that seem to be happening with cards etc. I would hate to see a recall just as the review comes out. It seems like a great camera.
Should we talk about incompatible batteries?
There goes any sales (the 68 is delayed by months), I wonder if the K1 is going to be delayed?
rhlpetrus: Is it true that its VF looks larger than that of D810?
The mirror box is sized for the sensor...that is why Medium Format has a bigger VF than FF.

Looks like where I live (though not borealI... am always impressed when some can make something of a snowscape (not easy)
The 810 is a great camera that ticks a lot of boxes even still. Canon is modernizing their lens lineup and Sony is developing state of the art lenses (along with Sigma). Nikon (as an optical company foremost) seems to be lagging behind with modern excellent lenses.
Honey, would you get my camera out of the pack for me, there is a pulitzer waiting with this shot.
villagranvicent: At least on my computer the shots at 100% view looks pretty crappy. Too much noise, lack of detail and blown highlights. But what the heck, is a SONY right?
Yes, yes it is
Chillbert: What is the practical difference between the Pentax Pixel-Shift mode and multi-exposure averaging such as Sony's "Hand-Held Twighlight" mode, which takes multiple shots in quick succession and averages them in-camera? I have a good old Sony NEX 5n and have used the Hand-Held twighlight mode very successfully for night-time shots, for example. But in principle it could also be used for landscape photography to oversample the scene with similar time lag to Pentax's Pixel-Shift mode. I'm not trying to say Sony is superior, just trying to understand how these approaches compare. (Similarly, presumably one could take multiple exposures in burst mode or manually on a high-end camera like the Nikon 810 if it doesn't have that built in.)
EDIT: Note: I understand the technical difference, I'm trying to understand the functional differences.
I believe that the Pentax also has software in camera that auto sharpens up the photo when movement is detected (I think Sony does this also)
stevo23: If we're going to say that it challenges medium format, why isn't a medium format camera available in the comparison tool?
DP can't afford a MF for comparison.
The Sony method is JPEG only.
Congratulations to Canon and NASA for getting together with the low bidder.
