Hmmm...No red dot...?
I guess they're about to find out who a significant part of their clients are.

OneMoreComment: Those two Samsung have the wrong logo on their back .....

@Lars,

It is one thing that commenting readers are inaccurate about facts.

That an editorial staff member happily propagates a craftily created piece of "legal-industrial intelligence" makes one wonder "Why?"

It is possible Samsung has "stolen" many things from Apple in the past. It is also possible true the other way around is also a the case.

Samsung, however, did not "stole" design.

Get your facts straight. You owe it to your readers.

skytripper: Shockingly mediocre selection.

Are you always the same guy, under different alias, commenting on every photo contest I ever lay my eyes on, claiming how bad the entries are and then not having a single photo to show for when we click on the handle...?

...or is it a company, a club or some other social entity doing the tired bit...?

Wikipedia does not need this bad press.

Someone in charge should see the possible negative impact on an organisation that counts heavily on our collective goodwill and order the photo to be removed ASAP.

On Accessory Review: Drobo Mini RAID article (149 comments in total)
In reply to:

ArcaSwiss: You're cramming this website with more and more useless articles. All the while not bothering to review Canon 1DX. Something smells rotten.

(continued)

Still lacking reviews of long-ago launched but current DSLRs while keeping justifying their nonexistence with the time it took for a manufacturer to provide a review sample at launch time sounds more like bitter payback than a sensible explanation.

...but, hey, as ArcaSwiss so aptly put it, at least we DO have these "Drobian" reviews, right?

(...if this sound harsh and you feel DPR efforts are not appreciated, please know it is not so. You see, I have this peculiarity: I usually only go to the trouble of criticizing what I love.)

@Barney,

That was a tongue-in-cheek reference to how the repeated lack of reviews of some of the 2 major DSLR manufacturers flagship models over the years has (not) been explained and how it seems so hard , for some of DPR staff and moderators, to understand that such reviews absences in the most important photography site on the Net are as conspicuous as the lack of a review from a top model from a major car manufacturer would be in a best-selling cars magazine.

Those who love to write about cars, while also loving to drive normally have special enthusiasm when given the opportunity to test and write about those top models.

Those who love to write about photographic cameras, while also loving photography should also normally get a kick out of reviewing those flagships.

Curious editorial line.
Some forum moderators, for instance, could very well consider it "bashing".

On CASE Remote: smartphone remote for your DSLR post (31 comments in total)
In reply to:

six34sigma: If the camera makers want declines in sales to stop they need to incorporate technology like this into their cameras. This should not be an add on. Get with the modern world Nikon/Canon.

....errr...but they are "getting with the modern world".
My Canon M2 has Wi-Fi remote control capability.

I see products like this CASE with a very limited life scope.

Funnily enough, in the very near future, I would need my M2 to have wired remote control capability also, something it does not feature.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2300 comments in total)
In reply to:

dcshooter: Leave it to Leica to present a point and shoot with a horribly crippled interface, excruciatingly slow load time, middling image quality (have you looked at the supposedly "nuce" images attached to this article?) for something supposedly high-end, and poor ergonomics, and claim that it is revolutionary and merits a nearly $2k pricetag.

As usual, the Leica sycophants will drool all over it, but it's becoming increasingly sad to watch this once-proud company lift its leg to its own legacy. Unfortunately, a luxury price tag does not equal relevance in the digital age, and the technical and advantages they had in the film era which, while overstated, were at least real, simply aren't there any more.

In reply to:

coso dp: Not considering price it's basically a Canon EOS M in an awesome metal chassis.

Yes, I understand the limitations (almost impossibility) of reviewing a camera that only exists in some selected Far-East countries.

But I feel you could list it in the Product Database, if for anything else, for the sake of completeness.

If and when the M3 is launched the DB will look strange without an M2 in-between the M1 and M3, don't' you think?

More "significant cameras market fragmentation" cases like these could emerge and you must decide if you want to be a global reference site or just a "regional" (no matter how widely) one.

@Richard Butler,

Is the focusing faster than the M2?
...or is it the case that, besides not listing it in the 2013 list of Canon cameras, DPR has actually decided it does not exist?

67gtonr: DPR praises Leica for doing something that Canon did with the EOS M two years ago, except that everything the Leica does the Canon does better!

@quezra

Focus speed on the M2 is not a factor.

In reply to:

CameraLabTester: Canon should replace the EOS M disaster with a newer body model instead on newer lenses.

New lenses, no matter how brilliant they are, are just bricks when mounted on the quagmire designed EOS M.

Come out with an upgrade for EOS M, then maybe consumers will call on the deal.

It is also your responsibility, Canon, to issue relevant and important FIRMWARE UPDATES to those who have been suckered into buying the EOS M incomplete camera. They deserve your support.

.

Wow...It is clear you Americans don't "get" this system.
No wonder it has so little support from Canon USA.
