Angrymagpie: I've written my initial review when I bought the bag 3 months ago:http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57122397
I'm enjoying it three months in. The slider turns out to be tight enough so far.My biggest problem with the bag - apart from it being quite fancy-looking - is its inability to stand on its own. The bag keeps tilting frontward and occasionally falls over. One time, tragedy struck, when I was packing and wasn't paying attention to how stable the bag was sitting on my desk, it fell over and a lens fell out and hit the floor. This wouldn't have happened with my 7-million dollar home. Yes indeed I could have had the lid of my bag closed - but I was packing and I only just left my bag for a few seconds to grab something else... Peak Design has to do something to address this problem in my view!
You nailed it with the bag unable to stand on its own. This is especially true if you put stuff in the front pocket. The Tenba DNA 15 is a bit larger and not so 'fancy' but looks plainer and does stand up easily. Cheaper too.
I don't wish to be snarky but would it kil DPR to finally deep-six Flash? Many of us use mobile devices and Flash doesn't work. Yeah, yeah, it works on Android or at least some of them but Adobe is no longer developing for mobile. It's very laborious to click on pictures one at a time. hTML5, guys.
Steven Blackwood: But that $3200 price tag, That's $900 more than the current model.
Very true but one of the selling points was price, so this upward push on price resembles Canon's strategy on lenses. What will the A7s ii cost?

all excellent but I was especially struck by #9.
Steven Blackwood: I can't fault this review too much but, given how poorly WiFi is implemented by Canon, the lack of WiFi is no loss. Agree that a touch screen would have been great. And one area in which Canon's video shines is in the DualPixel AF which, in my opinion is top of the line. It will be interesting to see if the Samsung NX1 does better.
@nandbytes I can't comment on all mirrorless cameras but I recently owned a GH4 and I published a video comparison on Vimeo of the GH4 and 70D autofocus capabilities. Try as I might, the GH$ would NOT focus on a hollyhock flower without pressing the shutter button halfway while the 70d had zero problems.

One observation. She uses a 5d iii but that camera lacks audio annotation as well.
Zdman: Why is nobody else bugged by m43 camera's mostly having a 4:3 ratio as well? The specification is for an image circle so it could also be 3:2 like the others but all current models are 4:3. I would pick m43 if it was 3:2 but as it is I find it hard to compose. In all the comments by lovers and haters I've read (and that must be over a thousand by now) why have I not seen one comment on this?
You can also set your ratio to 3:2.
A very welcome update. Now, how about movable focus points in video mode?
cherrydn: Could you guys please tell me where can I buy this lens for Nikon mount?. I'm looking around but I couldn't see any one in stock.
It will not be available until November.
The Olympus c210o IS was sort of a unique camera. A Canon made IS system coupled with a 10x zoom. I got a lot of use out of it.
For the price, the Fuji X100s should have had Image Stabilization.
Re: #4. The conventional wisdom is that you should use an 85mm equivalent for portraits. although CW is sometimes wrong.
justmeMN: "a non-camera consumer product." I know, Nikon brand guns and ammunition. (grin)

Interesting product in that it uses Bluetooth and doesn't require line of sight. It is small and compact enough to fit in a pocket. Too bad it can't be used to control Lv and video functions. If it could do that, it would be a Camranger killer (which costs $300).
Why don't they just fire the reporters and give the photographers "lessons" on reporting?
Gary Goodenough: While not a firmware issue, my greatest disappointment is not having a complete printed manual.
BUTm if they do not have a printed manual, they should have a better pdf, one that has hot links. Canon did this with some of their manuals.
prohidium: I have not gone to the website to look, but if you already have a gorilla pod, can you just buy the rest of it separately? Such as the suction cup set or the wheel set?
Should note that the Cameramator does not actually use the hot shoe.It simply has a hot shoe connector. Also, the Camranger has the added benefit of controlling video, making the ipad virtually a camera monitor. Thus, same money, better features. Both devices are overpriced IMHO but I do own a Camranger. They should also support non-Canon/Nikon DSMRs.
