PhotoKhan: Given how visually obvious the problem seems to be, I have only one question:
Are there ANY quality control checks at Canon?

It's not visually obvious, as is explained in the full story.

Biological_Viewfinder: I'm gonna give this camera to my little kid. I mean non-stop continuous shooting????? Even a 5yr old can get the shot now!!!

"Here kid, take this"
"It's very heavy."
"Yeah, but that's not important. Do you hear it working?"
"Yes daddy."
"It's taking pictures."
"It is?"
"Yep. Point it at those birds."
....
....
"WOW!!! THIS IS AMAZING!!!! YOU GOT THE SHOT!!!! LOOK AT THIS!!!! AMAZING!!!!"
"Thanks dad."
"No problem. You're a real photographer now. Those mean know-it-alls who frequent DPR were right; all it takes is equipment."

^ This is really weird ..

kierenlon: Good news.

I can only hope for a firmware update for the coolpix A to do the following if you are reading this Nikon...

1. Add CLS commander mode
2. Remember focus distance on wake (useful for pre-focusing with af-on)
3. Screen off (to save some battery in the absence of #2)
4. One touch zoom for image review

I'm sure it's good, but then there is the Ricoh GR.

Snapper2013: Is there a DPR review of this camera?

Does that improve the performance as well?

Mister Roboto: Vaseline on the lens!

You crazy? Put it on a filter!

groucher: Buy an old metal bodied 50mm f1.8 Nikkor (far better for a minute fraction of the price of this lens) and use Colour Efex Glamour Glow if you really need to smear the highlights.

Just googled it,
That is the most vomit inducing software effect i've ever seen.

drsonic: Would a Voigtlander Nokton 42.5mm f/0.95 give similar look on m43?

A nice screw-on optical effect filter will 'fix' the sharpness of the Nokton wide open. :)

ThatCamFan: "We learned from the D600 episode." If that were true they would NOT have screwed up the D750 as well. They would of tested several bodys and tested the heck out of them. They learned how to react to problems, not how to PREVENT them with GOOD quality testing.

Thousands though .. i mean really ? Come on. Thousands of 'parts' sure who knows, but a lot less of them moving.

BeaverTerror: "We don’t consider that we manufacture more FX than DX lenses; we’ll focus on both." "We don’t feel we have more FX than DX products now; we have a full line-up in DX as well."

Stopped taking this interview seriously after the second answer. What a joke.

It's actually 1.55

bronxbombers4: The real question is does the 5D4 get this new sensor technology? (awesome if so, but man the 5Ds will look like an orphan quickly! other than for the MUST have MP and nothing else matter crowd). I guess Canon marketing wants to milk maximally so they hold back a new sensor and better body features for a 5Ds2 in a couple years. They give the better body features and new sensor to the 5D4 but hold back the resolution. They have to make sure to never give all they can at once so they can milk out an extra generation or two.

All that said, the sensor in this does potentially signal that Canon may not be entirely lost. It remains to be seen though. It will be interesting to find out how and if it really manages to deliver the 15 stops ad if Canon cares to ever bother using that tech for, you know, their DSLRs.

Wow, you really have no idea what you're looking at do you.

They have a right to be rebels.

On Opinion: Why the Canon XC10 is a big deal article (814 comments in total)
In reply to:

LFPCPH: Maybe it's just me - but I find that the words "sound" and "audio" is missing in this article.

But then again - most video shot with cameras like this is shown on TV-sets with mediocre sound technology.

It’s just that this camera is called a “multimedia” device.

That is if the image is in focus to begin with, the word "autofocus" is missing as well. Or even Manual focus for that matter, which is surely going to be horrible. No way out if the AF proves unreliable.

*Supposedly there is no phase-detect or 'Dual Pixel AF', just the CDAF.

On Datacolor offers Spyder5 with redesigned calibrator article (113 comments in total)

55% improvement in tonal response.

In other words, they finally admit that the Spyder4 was sh*t.
(and yes i have one, regretfully)

DominicVII: Price too high. Why bother with this lens when the excellent Tamron 90mm with autofocus can be had for around €350? Working distance of around 30 cm (if true) sounds good though.

Comparing 'can be had for' prices with MSRP are we ..

It appears you've forgotten to reset the crop after disabling correction.

Corrected image shows more information than uncorrected, and both are 19.44MP

Same thing with the magazine stand.

ThePhilips: Should have been cheaper, smaller, lighter and probably f/4.0.

At $600, it would have hard time going against the legacy 100mm-ish macro lenses which can be found on eBay/etc for around $300.

Man.. have a cookie ?

I agree and that's why i'm not asking it to be F1.8, but optics are better than that now, there's no need for it to be F4 unless there is zoom involved. It might shave off a few bucks, but you are mistaken if you think it would be half price or even 2/3. If you want to keep the performance that is, a $100 at most, and you keep the stopped down to F4 performance (then wide open) only if you're lucky. No thanks.

In reply to:

mbaginy: I'm disappointed that it doesn't offer a tripod collar. I've been so waiting for a macro lens for my X-System - with a collar! Why?!! Has it become a forgotten art, to design a "proper" macro lens?

Sorry, Samyang, to sound so negative, but without a tripod collar, a macro lens is almost useless to me.

Interesting, didn't realize collars were used for that.

Flipping the tripod head itself indeed ruins the viewpoint.

Did anybody notice it has got 9 (rounded) aperture blades !?

Good for stopping it down as you most certainly would for Macro.

Indeed has been done to death, could have been something interesting as a native Mirrorless (short flange). :-(

But keep the F2.8 for APSC pleez.
If only so it can double as a portrait lens etc.
