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.

Hope it doesn't nuke my button settings like 2.0 did.

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.

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?

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 (173 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.

Which rebrand Panasonic is this?

Is this better built? It is heavier - 405g vs LX100's 393g.

I hope it is more than 1:1.

In reply to:

b534202: Can the battery be easily removed and changed?

Yes, but is it EASY to remove? i.e. do I have to remove a backing plate or is there a battery door that I can flip open?

Also, once you change the battery, do you have to wait for Android to reboot? That would really suck if you use this as a camera.

It is good that this has a different FL than the RX100M3. People can just buy whichever one based on that alone.

Curtox: I was all in on this phone. Then I saw that price. If that's for real, this thing is destined to barely make a dent in terms of sales. That's an incredibly steep asking price. Just wow.

I would get it if they sell it for $200 w/ 2 year contract.
