On Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview (1037 comments in total)
In reply to:

across_mountains: I have a 7D. I was hoping for the Mark II to have an articulated screen. Unfortunately, the 7D Mark II lacks it. While most of my photography doesn't need it, I've taken enough that I wish the Mark II had an articulated screen so that I wouldn't have to engage in Hail Mary picture taking. I'm disappointed.

A floppy screen is not necessary since the video is lame anyway….

On What is equivalence and why should I care? article (2071 comments in total)

Some people here seem to think that they can produce the same level of clean image (low noise) with a GH4 as with an A7R when shooting at iso100 with the FF camera. Not possible.

Franka T.L.: Well, this is nothing new , really, Medium Format digital backs had been using sensor shift to facilitate capturing of all chromatic info through multiple exposure. And stitching of multiple exposure. whether those could be employed in a more dynamic manner ( How about someone needing such an option on a scene that require using 1/4000 shutter , would be a bit hard to shift the sensor in such short duration and not to mention shift it in controlled and very precise manner ) But since pentax had already demonstrate similar utilization of sensor shift ( on their psuedo AA filer mode for K-3 ) it seems viable enough.

That which did employed in Medium and Large format digital back used to demand the photo to be taken on stationary subject and require very solid tripod fixture ( the multiple exposure is triggered as a series of bracket, sort of , except its not bracket of exposure value or WB but bracket of sensor positions ). I would wager it can easily be done on these smaller formats

Who cares if it´s new or not when it has never been implemented in a consumer model before?

mpgxsvcd: Noise performance of the Canon 7D mkII is not its biggest issue. Actually the noise performance in low light is quite good. Even the DXO tests show that its low light performance is less than ½ a stop behind its competitors. Take a look at the low light scene near the bottles at ISO 1600-6400 and you will see the 7D mkII noise is handled quite well.

Dynamic range is the issue with the 7D mkII. It is almost 2 stops behind its competitors in dynamic range. The studio scene can’t demonstrate that difference because the scene simply does not have enough dynamic range to exceed what the 7D mkII can display. If the dynamic range of the scene does not exceed the dynamic range capacity of the camera’s sensor you can’t draw any conclusions about dynamic range for that image.

6:10 into the review shows the DR problem is a reality: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2ljRc-glN4&list=UUqpOf_Nl5F4tjwlxOVS6h8A

It´s comparable with D3300 in RAW iso6400. Well done.

I want to know if this model has improved the inferior DR in video mode that other Canon DSLRs have prior to this model.

In reply to:

Donnie G: Pixel peep all you want gang, this camera will make money for the professionals who use it and the rental houses who stock it. Its a small, lightweight, infinitely customizable, industrial strength body with AF that's supported by the largest selection of modern lenses the world has ever known, and that makes it a very cost effective tool for professional productions. Of course if you're not a pro, then none of that would matter to you. Different strokes!

I have a feeling that one of the writers here is working for Canon…...

It´s a good move of Canon to finally incorporate 60fps in 1080p. Well done!!!

microstudio: Can be GX7, better than canon 70d for video?

Or, can I compare GH4 with d610, in photos?
I would like to buy gh4, but still there are few reviews.
Now i use 70d and d700

70D has not 60fps in 1080p. Panasonic and Sony has it since 2012

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II Review preview (513 comments in total)
In reply to:

SamHart: Hi- I have RX100 II. I am desperately wondering if any body has faced the problem of random photos being read as "unsupported image format" on the computer? They are also blacked out on the camera too.
I followed any advice on deleting all photos on camera and formatting the card, but it happened again.
This malign problem has ruined at least half of my photos. The worst part is that you don't know which files will be like this or will luckily be saved as a healthy one.
Please give any tip that would address this headache.

Thanks!

I had a few photos blacked out on the camera, and it was a fault in the SD-card.

On 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... something. article (1669 comments in total)
In reply to:

CraigArnold: I quite like it as a marketing campaign.

Sure if you are being cynical like 99.99% of DPR users then it's just a pretentious way of saying that the photographer is more important than the equipment. Canon does make good equipment, but everyone here really wanted more megapixels or something.

Not for gear forums, but to market themselves by showing all the cool stuff you can do with their products isn't a horrible idea.

People (real people not DPR people) are tired of buying better equipment when their current equipment is good enough. Sell them a dream or inspiration though and they might buy things they didn't realise they needed.

Good job Canon.

And it loads in all my browsers.

Hahahaha!

Menneisyys: "Of course we are committed to the APS-C format, and we’re still investing it. In terms of resolution, our lenses are so sharp, there’s scope for higher resolution to maximize the capabilities of the lenses."

Sharp lenses able to properly drive considerably higher-res sensors - exactly the same I've been telling the people here at DPR who tend to state higher-Megapixel sensors in Fuji cameras would be pointless.

As has also been shown by Sony's A6000, there wouldn't be any downsides of switching to Sony's 24 Mpixel sensor used in the A6000. Or, for that matter, if Samsung's new 28 Mpixel sensor is indeed good and they also offer it to third-party camera manufacturers, that one.

"Dynamic range is better with larger pixels." That should make Canon G1X MII to a dynamic range killer….but it´s not….

Then why did you use a Sony sensor in your G7X?

Hahahaha!!
