straylightrun: No IBIS?
""put IBIS in and you have THE camera" without 4K?"---What is 4K?
Fully agreed - put IBIS in and you have THE camera. The well pronounced grip and the fully articulating LCD are better than most other mirrorless'.
""We sometimes run out of things to take pictures of"---And so?
If i run out of things to take pictures of, i don't take pictures. It always baffles me how photography magazines press their readers to photograph this and this and this - i photograph what inspires me and otherwise, let the camera rest.
I felt the "slide show" format not useful for this string of very similar photos which often didn't show anything new between clicks. I'd very much prefer this kind of information in a conventional text, with only a fraction of the illustrations.
I have even said that before about other "slide shows" and was told by forum members that this format is good to create "clicks", which are desired by websites. But i think in this case here - with one very similar photo hunting the next - the "slide show" format is stretched to the limit.
graybalanced: Like a lot of giveaways, you must first add this pack to their shopping cart, and then you can't download what's in the shopping cart unless you have or create a VSCO account with your name and email address.
This might matter if you're concerned about leaving behind your contact info for a one-time download.
"Its their way of adding people to their mailing list."---And perhaps not only to "their" mailing list.
Good hint. And just what you'd expect from "free" stuff.
"Who doesn't love free stuff?"---I. I abhor it. I'd very much prefor to pay money for operating systems etc.., vor a whole host of reasons.
I read a sentence like "Who doesn't love free stuff?" also in a Scott Kelby book.
What do they think of me?
Kurt Helge Roesand: Since I hate the CC idea, this little nugget really upsets me, big time. "New features or enhancements will only be added to Lightroom CC."
HDR looks awesome though.
"New features or enhancements will only be added to Lightroom CC."---I tried to find that quote in the article, but didn't manage to. Where did you read it?
steelhead3: HDR merge should be hugely popular with Canon shooters and the limitations of their sensors.
Well, what do you make of a name such as "steel head"?
h2k: The headline is about the new lens's price, but then in the teaser text you don't tell the price, the reader has to click onto the link.
I understand that websites want clicks, still i find it a bit funny - announcing a price information, which is a very tiny piece of information (not like a camera test conclusion) and then hiding that information from the introductory text.
Well, Badi, yes :)
Still I'd like to see good reader service - give the price information fast.
I feel it's different with a camera test - no need to reveal the conclusion in the front page snippet, especially as they present their own research. But getting a mere price info from a company, then saying "i have the info, but you only get it after a click" feels a tad too playful.

ManuelVilardeMacedo: I don't see the need for this kind of aperture on an ultra wide-angle lens. It might be useful for shooting in dimly lit locations with no tripod or flash, but aren't wide-angle lenses supposed to keep everything sharp? I surely need good depth of field when I shoot landscapes and interiors. I'd trade f/0.95 for f/22.The bokeh mania is driving people nuts.
"Have you ever tried shooting the Milky Way at f/22?"---No, not interested at all.
VENTURE-STAR: What an amazingly annoying item to have waved around in front of you at a music concert by some cretinous imbecile who has no consideration for anyone behind them, who might become rather annoyed.
On the other hand, they do look rather like telescopic police batons and might have some self defense value I suppose?
"What an amazingly annoying item to have waved around in front of you at a music concert by some cretinous imbecile"---Nice wording.
JaimeA: The reviewers apparently do not go to special events, such as outdoor music festivals or open air exhibitions. Many museums (e.g. the Louvre) and other cultural spots do not allow these sticks blocking or disrupting the view for everyone else. They seem to be always up and on, and in large groups; unavoidable. They are dangerous too, as they rob attention from the users. Pickpockets love them. What’s wrong with a raised arm or asking someone? Shame on DPR for mentioning, let alone recommending this awful nuisance.
"Only a pickpocket would have that information."---He is a police man.
nandbytes: No EVF = no sale.I thought Sony A5100 was bad, this thing is even worst an idea. At least A5100 isn't overpriced. But NX500 comes with a hotshoe I guess.
No EVF = no useless bulk.
I like the concept of this camera a lot.
zink: Thanks for the review. I enjoyed it.But 16MP is beginning to look low by contemporary standards is one of your cons. I think you should applaud Fuji for not joining the MP race.
"@Richard Butler. Yes, but how good could a 16MP sensor be with the _latest_ technology? Why not put all improvements into even less noise rather than MP count - that would be nice!"---That had been my thought too. But i understand Richard's point of view as well.
" I think you should applaud Fuji for not joining the MP race."---I think so too.
gmarmot: I fully understand that most people here are photo geeks, as am I, however I'm a bit mystified at folks who downgrade micro 4/3 because of image quality, & say a larger sensor is necessary. What are you doing with your photos? I'm retired & been traveling in 21 3rd world countries for 6 years (sometimes backpacking). My 1/2.3" sensor images were often good enough that at a slide show folks were shocked to learn what camera I used.The point is that most photographers will not need a sensor larger than the EM5II has, and the viewers of their pics will not know the difference. Carrying 36+ oz of my EM5 (now EM5II) and lenses going from 24 to 600 mm, is the absolute max size and weight that is feasible for me.As I'm 62 and grew up shooting film in 35m and larger sizes, I would like to have the image quality of a sensor larger than 35mm full frame, but the weight, size, and cost would, in no way, be worth it.How many of you actually need a sensor larger than this one?
Just like the OP's, my small-sensor compact camera shots also have stunned people and been printed on double-pages (daylight pictures of course). I've also heard especially in certain countries that a big fat camera with a well-known camera maker name on the strap is a "must" - not having a mirror box is a disadvantage here, it makes the object smaller.
And i also agree that DOF control is driving me towards larger sensors (and expensive lenses).
The headline: "Rock Steady"
The teaser image: A camera on... wooden planks.
Interesting visit! I actually clicked, viewed and read all of it, which i didn't expect to.
