On Canon announces long-awaited EOS 7D Mark II article (115 comments in total)

Stop going on about 4K. When 4K is mainstream, all the toys that have brought it out now will be junk. When consumers don't even have 4K screens this is laughable. This is an enthusiast sports and wildlife photographers camera.

£150 cheaper than the RX100 III, with better focal length and aperture. Wait for the trolling haters to slam it now.

On Samsung NX1 First Impressions Review preview (1444 comments in total)

If it performs to spec it's a strong camera. But I feel that it may falter over time as many Samsung imaging products have when I've pushed them.
Please don't be more bark than bite.
Also WiFi on this resolution sensor is just silly. I'd never transfer high IQ over WiFi it would take forever. If there is improved usable WiFi control via App that would be nice.

Dan1964: I'll never buy another Canon pixma. Never had a printer that used so much ink just turning it off and on.

The statement about ink from the cartridge being used to clean the print heads is correct. One fact to take note of is that using most 3rd party inks is a false economy. Was part of a test not that long ago that showed more ink from 3rd party inks used more to clean the head than originals, and on average use you would replace 3X the amount of 3rd party inks before 1 original was emptied. So when using 3rd party ink multiply the ticket cost x 3 to get a true cost of printing on average use, not continious. Also using 3rd party inks voids warranties if any issues arise around the print head.... Just saying....

On Nikon announces full-frame D810 with no OLPF article (99 comments in total)
In reply to:

peevee1: Huh. 2014 and no built-in WiFi, when every point and shoot has it already?!

And they still continue to play games. 5 fps at 36 mpix means that sensor and processor are able to produce 7.2 (not 6) fps at 1.2x and 11.2 fps (not 7) at DX crop. Artificial limits on a $3200 camera. Huh.

WiFi will not work in a Magnesium Alloy Body. It has to be an external unit.

In reply to:

Beckler8: Gigantic DSLRs like this are becoming more and more niche - really just for certain pros that need specific types of performance. They should make a more versatile version, call it the D4V or whatever, that has many more video features like 4K, power zoom and AF that actually works. At least then hobbyists can justify the massive price and size because then suddenly it's a cinema camera as well.

World press photo cameras 2014. Nikon need this camera, but have a little way to go yet. http://www.thephoblographer.com/2014/02/18/canon-1d-x-dominates-world-press-photo-2014-list/

It's not the same 18MP sensor everyone. Please, please, read up on whats happening before you comment. Haven't been here for a while due to the lack of knowledge and understanding from commentators on this site. I'm leaving again....

In reply to:

Alec_c: Fanboys gathered to bring flowers to the new Canon muse ... Laughable.
How many of the these ... actually touched, held and shot this camera? I did so.
Dpreview rated ergonomics as excellent. I beg to differ big time: tiny buttons and especially wheels, unusable 4-way selector, cramped body and ultra-cramped hand hold ("sir, you should buy a grip"). The mobile screen is the only good thing to say about the ergonomics. Fit anything but a small and cheap lens and it will fall on it's nose.
One question though, all these people asking for smaller cameras are just pygmies with recently acquired internet connections or terminally weak exemplars of our species? Since when a few ounces of body should sacrifice even a basic thing as holding properly a camera. Unless you buy to keep it on a shelf and show to friends. To a similar comment, a gentleman (of debatable wit) suggested to hold it with the tips of the fingers.

I've owned for a month and am in total love with with. There you go... Sold many images from it as well. It's a complete dream of a camera...

In reply to:

Jack Hogan: "In terms of image quality the 70D is essentially on a par with its rivals"

Who's your daddy, DPReview? Informed photographers know that the IQ of the 70D is uncompetitive today and lags a couple of generations behind that of its rivals, whether that be DR, color sensitivity or spatial resolution. Its strengths lie elsewhere.

Your readers want objective information in order to make an informed decision when buying a camera of a certain class and budget.

Q: Is this the better camera for Landscapes? A: No
Q: Is this the better camera for Portraits? A: No
Q: Is this the better camera for Wildlife/BIF? A: No
Q: Is this the better camera for Video? A: Maybe
Q: if I go for a smaller/lighter system will I lose IQ? A: It depends on the kind of shooting you do

The fact is, once you start comparing it objectively to its brothers from another mother the 70D's IQ comes out looking pretty short. Sugar coat it, but this is what your readers expect from you.

Jack

Sounds like you've owned and used an EOS 70D for a while, I'm an early adopter of this model myself have already sold many images from it and disagree with every word you've typed. This camera out preforms older models as well as many other models on the market. Take it from someone who does this for a job, full time...

Thoughts: Meanwhile, Sony put a full frame sensor into a body that has similar size of G16. Canon is dreaming...in Japan only

The Sony is actually quite a bit larger and around 4 times the price...

BeaniePic: I just can't work with EVF's... Also the design looks uncomfortable? Never been a fan of Sony cameras and this hasn't changed my mind on first looks. I know Sony and other brands want to break into Canon and Nikon's market but it's just going to be too hard for them to do I believe. Keep on trying guys maybe some day...

Fair point Tord S Eriksson. Each to there own. This camera is interesting, Sony are brave and are looking forward. It was interesting, I was at a photo event last weekend. All the big brands were there. Canon, Nikon, Sony Pana, Fuji etc. So many people there (a lot from photo clubs of which I'm one). Small cameras CSC etc. were not popular with many there. Points raised were EVF, size, lenses, accessories are way behind OVF, comfort and range of accessories. CSC type cameras have years to go to give photographers the choice and mix of accessories photographers want and need. DSLR's from Canon and Nikon are still out selling all CSC from all brands put together. There good but still can't give what DSLR's can supply (at this time and for some time to come). The Canon EOS 70D for example will outsell this camera in a big way.

supeyugin1: Looks like Sony is dumping their DSLRs/SLTs. That's a good move.

Why do you say that. DSLR sales out way CSC sales. CSC sales are declining while DSLR sales are increasing globally.It's just not working as you hit a brick wall with CSC and if your a photographer you move to DSLR's. I can't blame Sony for trying though...

SHood: For a camera model that has changed so little from the previous version, I am surprised dpreview is spending time on it.

Up to 9FPS with AF in M, TV, AV and P and Starlight Photography and Time Lapse Movie. Also backgroud defocus. I wish everyone would actually find out what the new features are, before commenting. This is a completely different camera V the S110 as is the G16 V the G15, same new features in both...
