mpgxsvcd: Please don't buy these cameras. This only encourages Canon to build more terrible products.

Terrible vs what? Cameras in the same price range? D810? The entire Sony range (looks fashionable these days)? Phase One? Leica? Be specific. It will make you credible.

mpgxsvcd: This Canon has an F3.4 to F6.0 24–1008 mm lens. They might as well have just included a fixed focal length 24mm F3.4 lens because that is about the only focal length and aperture that is remotely close to useful on this camera.

No, but let them be happy. With the camera phone, I mean. The entire thread is complete nonsense, anyway. Even the seriously priced Rolls Royce has some flaws, but these are just "not even worth the review" cameras. However, however, like it or not, these will make many users happy.

justmeMN: How *dare* Canon make a camera that's not designed for the enthusiast niche. It's an outrage! :-)

Outrageous indeed.

Pallke: A CCD sensor?

G.U.L.P !

Marc, you're right about the CCD sensors.

These two cameras are not for the DPR readers. Interesting enough, "the big one" is not among them. Stay tuned.

alexzn: this is one of the iconic images of the WWII. It may not be so popular in the West but it is rather well known in Russia. Depite all the poor taste sniping on DPR this is a real piece of history. Khaldei, Baltermantz and other Soviet war photographers left behind a treasure trove of powerful images documenting a titanic event of the 20th century. Have some respect (maybe a hopeless cause at DPR forums these days).

The worst thing is bias. Leading to the "collective blame". Sane people will always choose an ice cream over a rifle. In each and every country. Fortunately, sanity prevailed, so far. My post was not related to the dance at all, that's ok, nothing to comment on it.

I went to Berlin two weeks ago. It is now a wonderful city. Learn from the past (because, again, the only thing you cannot fix is the past), look to the present / future, try to make it better. Nazism and Communism destroyed the World once each, extremism and fundamentalism are destroying the World today - maybe we can do something about these. At least we can try.

alexzn: For a fine sample of soviet war pictures see:

BTW, Khaldei's photo was later retouched to remove one of two watches the soldier wore on his hands (evidence of looting which was widespread amend the victorious Red Army soldiers.

Yep, the only thing you cannot fix is the past.

4k, the name of the game. But, what if, what if, 21:9 aspect ratio would have been included? 4k is marketing, cinema work is 21:9... 2.39/2.40:1... My take. Otherwise, nice work from Panasonic.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Review preview (804 comments in total)
In reply to:

Donnie G: As nice as the RX100 III is, its most drool worthy impulse buyer's feature, that pop up EVF, will wind up making more enemies than friends for Sony. Why? Because it's not idiot proof. The pop up EVF is the one feature that the new owner is going to want to play with and show off the most, and it's also the thing that will suffer the most abuse and break, or, will be the culprit that constantly drains the battery due to being left in the up/on position. When this happens to enough owners, there will be a revolt, and Sony will get blamed for the operator errors of those owners. This is an easy prediction to make based on what I've seen even experienced photographers do to their new toys. Now imagine that pop up EVF being operated by the casual user, or, dare I say it, your teenagers. Idiot proof? Not! :)

@ Shamael: you're right and, no joke, there are Nikons and Canons out there with... 800k - 1m actuations. Yeah, that's right: 1000000...

I think I should visit an ophtalmologist: to my eyes, in the studio scene, RAW, ISO 6400, G1x Mk II does a better job. So, with proper editing, the images might be on the very usable side. But that's just me. And the Canon is also more expensive.

Oh, just woke up. Oh, this unpleasant hangover: Thor is always right. And this, and his/her post, it is not related with alcoholism. There are other (significant) pathologies out there, you know... And, yes - Cheers! :) P. S.: Cheers again!

Pro-Sony separatists should organize a referendum. And separate from the outdated Canon tech. Forever. And ever. Cheers! :) :) :)

Dpreview is not TIPA. And Sony is not Canon. And Apple is not Samsung. People still buy Apple. Lovely. Cheers! :)

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (451 comments in total)
In reply to:

GaryJP: About two years ago, these comment pages and forums were full of people saying the G 1 X had issues, that it would not be popular, it would not sell well, the price would drop "any day now", it would be an evolutionary dead end, and Canon would not make a Mk II.

Well, wrong on all counts, and in my town if you don't get to stores within half an hour of delivery the camera is sold out.

Now the critics may start pontificating that there will never be a G1 X Mk III, and the Mk II won't sell, and will soon drop its price.

Genau! Looks good. Cheers! :)
