tinternaut: Micro Four Thirds doesn't really need another 25mm lens.

This need some distinguishing features, like IS or macro or a cheap price.

ecube: I'll return the camera for a full refund.

But you can't because the SN doesn't match! :p

JJ Rodin: Great news for all those who purchase cheap no warranty cams from another country - find a friend with a 'real' cam and use them to send in cam for warranty work - give them a small handling fee - WIN-WIN !!

PS: is the serial # or other id hidden elsewhere ??

Probably in the firmware.

funnelwebmaster: Technically difficulty and noteworthy but without much artistic merit. Reminds me of some of those Guinness Book of World Records feats - who cares?

Please elaborate on those nice touches.

On Sony RX100 IV compact shoots 4k, uses a stacked sensor article (310 comments in total)
In reply to:

zakoops: Will be interested to find out if BSI-stacked sensor of RX100M4 ($1000) has about twice the image quality of BSI Nikon J5 ($500), both being 1” and 20MB sensors.

Upgraded video is quite nice, but first what about image quality?

Define "twice the image quality".

In reply to:

pacnwhobbyist: The lens on the Mark III and Mark IV is awesome optically, but I sort of wish they could've added back some more reach on the telephoto end on this camera.

Video is not as important to me, so I would want to see if there's any substantial advancements in IQ (not that there was anything wrong with the previous sensor) with the new sensor.

So looks like the plan is to update the lens on the odd number MKs and sensors on the even number MKs. Next year then?

Impulses: $1,000 huh... Looks like the G7x, LX100, et al haven't provided quite enough competition to the RX100 line, Sony keeps bumping the price every year. Way to dash my hopes of picking up a cheaper V when the IV came out Sony... Tho the GM1 had diminished my lust for it to a certain extent already. Maybe they'll launch what I'd really like, a cheaper/slimmer stripped down RX90 (RX1000?) sans flip screen, EVF, hotshoe, etc.

960fps in HD? That's actually way better than I expected.

What's the resolution at 960fps? I notice they avoid mentioning it.

CaPi: Nice name 'Air' goes well with 'Drone' where I can see these devices in the very near future.
Sony's similar model works well I am told. Fly carefully pls.

What are Japan's laws like regarding to drones?

So is the T6i their new cheap entry camera replacing the T5 while the T6s replaces the T5i?

Or is there going to be an even cheaper T6 coming?

Otherwise, good luck.

Simple man: I don't understand the above chart.

Not that it matters. It's absolutly no surprise to see Apple pushing the big boys Nikon and Canon around a bit. Local zoos, museums any tourist area..... Smartphones and devices rule.

It's almost funny seeing people hold iPads up to take photos at the zoo. But not nearly as funny as a guy taking wildlife photos with his $3,000 kit. He is truly the misfit. His kit being made for safari; yet its resolved to a life of shooting caged creatures. And his photos are no better that the iPads. Don't believe? Check out FLICKR....

Would have been easier to read if they didn't just lump everything into 1 chart. Break it down per brand for Pete's sake.

On Sony announces US pricing for full-frame Alpha 7 II article (177 comments in total)
In reply to:

chj: To Sony (and all camera manufacturers)

Put a damn touchscreen on your cameras. It is by far the best way to choose a focus point. Anyone that says otherwise has simply not used one and is exalting their "skill" in getting around their camera's limitations. Technology trumps skill. You can't get faster, more reliable autofocus than my GM1 (unless you have another Panasonic). Don't tell me about workarounds. The GM1 nails focus more often.

OK, manual focus can get tighter focus on a stationary subject that's willing to wait for you to set up. But with that kind of time, ANY camera can get tight focus.

So stop listening to photo geeks that equate touchscreens with bad phone photos. On a GOOD camera, a touchscreen is an immensely powerful tool that has more impact on photos than pixel peeping details.

Feedback from DPR photo geeks is 0.005% of the market. The other 99.095% are using touchscreen phones. The camera market is shrinking, because you are listening to the wrong market.

I have never had a touchscreen camera that won't screw up all my settings when it is dangled around my neck and hit against my body, although the last one that I used was the Panasonic GX1. Has the calibration gotten any better/smarter in general?

In reply to:

Nikonparrothead: But with reportedly better in-camera JPEG processing, does that mean the Leica version is actually worth the extra $ for people who primarily shoot JPEGS?

I'll wait for LR6 to come out and see if Leica includes that instead.

On Canon introduces new $78K 50-1000mm cine lens article (174 comments in total)
In reply to:

jaykumarr: omg.. the style of dpreview titles.. superb..

"new $78K lens" - loudly says everyone "not for you" even before clicking the link. Canon should have released this lens two week back as "impossible".

It is canon's business to price and sell whatever.. we should not intervene in their business. Moreover, it is clear that Nikon is not offering anything close to Canon like this or 100-400mm or 200-400mm 1.4x . I haven't seen them doing any improvement in their lens side.

I and thousand others here will be happier if Canon gives a sharper,faster version of already good 100-400 L , rather than these kind of professional only lens. I think that will be more profitable for Canon.

I have the same sentiments about seeing any mentions of L lenses on this site.

Canon should sell sharper, faster versions of consumer lenses instead of yet-another-L-lens-mk-II.
