Personally i like write-ups much more than videos. I can't concentrate on videos.

DPR had the real-world write-ups about the Pentax MF camera and one of them was good.

I also thought the 2nd statement was overwritten, but undersubstantiated.

In reply to:

h2k: Why not mention the lens' s widest apertures in the headline or at least in the text?

William, oh, i must have been blind (if the information was there from the beginning).

The aperture also features in the Amazon ad next to the text.

T3: Well, I guess I see my next camera! This is fantastic news. FF with IBIS is a dream come true.

Yes, *mirrorless* FF with IBIS - very appealing.

Did you you really mean "Sneak *Peak*"?

I didn't think this article was a peak of information. There is so little news (nothing about weight, filter threads, technicalities) that indeed it is a brief peek rather than a peak.

On Richard Franiec offers Canon PowerShot G7 X custom grip article (110 comments in total)

The fact that external grips from third-party manufacturers exist, should put camera makers to shame. But obviously it doesn't - they keep on designing utterly flat cameras that give me a cramp in my right hand when i only see them.

UPDATE to my previous comment: That's why i suggested to not even ignore such PR gags.

I think you could leave such kind of news to the rumour millers.

h2k: Does Sony have a history of actually shipping in the "targeted" month? (I don't know it.)

Interesting the wide-angle combo with tack-on widening optics. Did that yield good results on the previous model? Does it change aperture?

Quezra, thanks, good to know.

On Size matters: Hands-on with Canon PowerShot G7 X article (175 comments in total)
In reply to:

h2k: 24 mm equiv. at f1,8 sounds nice. But i had (around) these parameters on the G1X MkII – and the image quality was bad. It only got better around f3,5 or so.

The monitor hinging is very unfortunate for all but selfie-enthusiasts. Now there is no angle at all to shoot top-down – say onto a plate of food, onto a low flower or above a crowd. I use this perspective regularly. This newest iteration of the verticially hinged monitor is even more useless than the more common vertically hinged monitor that allows at least some kind of top-down view.

I have no idea why almost every company now abandons the much more versatile side-hinged monitor, which easily gives you many more perspectives onto a subject.

Hi all, thanks for suggesting to turn the camera upside down. I hadn't thought of that (there had been no need so far). I will try that with cameras i have on hand to see how comfortable i feel.

As for top-down photographed subjects, i forgot to mention that i also regularly snap documents, maps, newspapers etc. - not for perfection, more for memory or proof - still it is good if you can hold the camera perfectly vertically over the subject.

Well i also thought this "interview" is rather dull.

I think you should always mention stabilization, whether or not it is there, and if it hadn't been mentioned, you should say just that, i think.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 First Impressions Review preview (1869 comments in total)

I think in the Specs list as in the Specs Compared list, you should explicitly mention that the monitor is not articulated, thus denying the photographer many interesting and more unusual viewing angles.

On a live view camera, an articulating monitor is almost expected these days, i think. So in this regard the PowerShot G1 X II is clearly better than Panasonic.

Anyway for me - no articultating monitor and no built-in flash, i feel the cam missed the target group.

Once these are available, may i suggest a polarizer test on DPR?
