On Canon XC10: What you need to know article (233 comments in total)

I assume some controls rely on the touchscreen-

but you can't use the touchscreen at all

while the viewfinder is attached..

(while on the other hand the FZ 1000 hasn't got a touchsrenn- but a lot of buttons and a terrific dedicated OLED viewfinder)

On Opinion: Canon EOS 750D and 760D article (319 comments in total)

If you appreciate the Canon 760 D feature set and control layout
you should consider the Canon 70 D.

The 70 D offers a superior pentaprism viewfinder, Canons cutting edge Dual Pixel CMOS AF, better battery life and a more durable body.

In reply to:

blue hour: Nice but it lacks 4K,
therefore i'd rather choose the LX 100,
which has also got a viewfinder.

Panasonic, where is the G 7, by the way ?

A lot of recent mobile phones (e.g. Sony Z3 compact, Galaxy Note 4) and tablets shoot 4k,
some current action cams offer 4K,
some of them are cheaper than the GF 7.

The FZ 1000 records 4K, the LX 100 does as well.
I like Panasonic, I just don't think 4K should be considered a premium feature these days..

- no touchscreen
- no Wifi
- can't record 4K video
- more expensive than the competition (Pentax K3, Sony A77 Mk II,Olympus E-M1)
- all of those competitors feature stabilization built into the body, that works with every lens you attach
- rumours of a hybrid viewfinder (like the Fuji X100 T) didn't make it to the production line- Canon should reinforce their innovation management

1/3.4-inch CMOS sensor

- extra tiny sensor.

Is the battery swapable/ easily user replacable ?

I still don't get why consumers accept non-replacable batteries.

They are more difficult to recycle, you can't swap batteries on the fly while shooting or using your smartphone. You can't simply buy a new battery once the first one starts to fade away in terms of charge.

Imagine a camera with a battery thats non-replacable: I assume hardly anybody would like to buy a sealed-battery camera.

On Canon EOS 70D Review preview (695 comments in total)

"a camera whose primary innovations revolve around providing smooth autofocus in video" without 4k recording in 2013.

On the other hand-4k recording is going to be Canons innovation in the 80 D.

I'd rather use messenger pigeons instead
than to buy a phone with a non-removable battery.

In reply to:

Lars Rehm: Guys, the 808 has a nice camera for a phone but as a phone it is obsolete. You can carry it as a camera but then you still need a to carry another phone which kind of defeats the whole point of a camera phone. The 1020 offers both, a very good camera and a modern phone operating system. If it was running Android I'd already have put my order in but even with Windows I am seriously contemplating a purchase...

The 808 is quite capable as a phone too.

I'd really like to see an image quality comparison with the 1020.

Has the new Mini 90 got autofocus ?

The Instax Wide 500 AF offered autofocus.
Sadly, no instax did ever since.

On Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM preview article (149 comments in total)

The AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR
has a suggested retail price of $599.95.

I admit it's neither splashproof nor a macro lens.
It´s a consumer zoom while the canon
is a light weight pro lens with a moderate constant aperture.

But anyway, the canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM
has a suggested retail price of $1499.

What´s going on ?

Canon prices are skyrocketing.
Their ill-conceived marketing department is going to ruin the brand.

luqingyu: Why not large sensor?

Awesome, Nikon hired a Volvo designer to design the V 1.

In reply to:

Catalin Stavaru: I have a Panasonic LX3 and view this Canon S100 as a nice possible upgrade. I think it will beat the LX5 which is only marginally better than the LX3. It is smaller, has 30fps HD video and stereo microphone, big zoom that can be used while filming, plus mpeg4 movie format. It really doesn't lack anything as an advanced point-and-shoot.

... and at 120mm it's f/5.9 -

a bit too dark for my taste.
