In reply to:

harry: Which begs the question: will (or should) future DSLRs all go the mirrorless route?

By and large, the DSLRs are trapped by their large collection of lens systems.

I thought recently a Chinese company bought a significant equity in WD?

How about Nikon's own N1 bodies with an EVF and the 10-100mm zoom (non-powered)? It also has a 1" sensor, and even V1/V2 (a new body or good used body could be had for $150-$350 nowadays). Based on the images compared here, I bet the V*/10-100mm combo would beat the Sony on sports photography with its fantastic AF and fps.

On article A lot to like: Real-world Leica Q gallery posted (346 comments in total)

Just to argue for argument sake: how would Sigma's dp0, dp1, dp2, dp3 stack up to Leica Q? The four dp*'s cost less than a Q, but offer a wider range of views. Maybe dpreview or somebody could do a comparison?

Go to dpreview forum for Casio, and read about the ZR-850 by the poster Eric928 with many real-world samples.

Found a better link for ZR 850's 5-axis explanation here:

Please take a look at Casio's site for the ZR-850 marketing information:

http://www.casio-intl.com/asia-mea/en/dc/ex_zr850/

Scroll down not from the top on the 5-axis image stabilization. Also, if you have time, please check out dpreview's Casio forum for a few excellent images captured by some ZR-850 users. My impression is: it is a little wonder to encourage users to experiment. It also stretches the limits and usefulness of camera with such as small sensor and slow lens to produce better looking images.

In reply to:

rtogog: Nice looking camera, but why this new model still maintain its tiny sensor? Is there any revolutionary in sensor technology? I thought the new small " standard" size sensor for a camera is 1". Smaller than that has been eaten by smartphone....

A larger sensor would make the lens of this room range too big, and not as compact. Please take a look my reference to Casio forum and check out the ZR-850. Seeing is believing.

justmeMN: Chris Burkard is an official Sony Image Ambassador. That makes this video an infomercial, rather than an objective look at the camera.

Apparently a lot of video clips were shot with a drone flying over? I was wondering how an individual would be able to make such extensive video alone? Still, A6000 in a capable hand is very impressive.

Tord S Eriksson: Loved the video!

My wife's instant question was: Have they tried the same using a Nikon V3 and the glorious 70-300CX?!

Same qualities that make the Nikon V2/V3 outstanding, applies to the a6000: small MILC camera, with outstanding AF, and brilliant lenses.

I believe A6000's sensor is APS-C and V3 is 1", which may make a difference in IQ, all other the same.

Stollen1234: i am more interested to know about the surf spot in California..Dpreview could you please disclose the surf location in California and which pier ist it..

thank you

It looks like Avila Beach, near San Luis Obispo. The video mentioned Obispo and based on Google map satellite image, Aila Beach fits the bill for location.

On photo Igor's winning ball in the People playing petanque challenge (9 comments in total)

I am not the photographer, but I guess he stayed behind a protected board with only a hole for the lens. Then he zoomed out, and used the burst mode to fire off a series of shots with AF continuing tracking the ball as it flew towards the camera.

On article Hasselblad unveils pixel-shifting 200MP H5D-200c MS (231 comments in total)
In reply to:

MediaDigitalVideo: How many pixels do our eyes have ?

My understanding is that if a lens is compatible with the 50 MP image, the sensor shift would not demand more lens resolution than already is there. Would this limit the ISO or shutter speed? Also, I could imagine the same technology applied to regular digicams as a cheap way to increase resolution. For example, a 1/2.3" sensor of "only" 3 or 4 MP (so each pixel has better light collecting capability as far as reducing noise is concerned), paired with a smaller high speed zoom (10x, F1.8-2.8, not super zooms) would give people the resolution, digicam size, and high-speed lens they want. It's very possible.

On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 Review (896 comments in total)
In reply to:

harry: Now that Panasonic had FZ200 (1/2.3" sensor) and FZ1000 (1" sensor), would it make sense for Panasonic to make something like a FZ500 (1/1.7" sensor) that captures most of FZ1000's features but with a smaller body/lens? With a 1/1.7" limited to 10 MP for all practical purposes, it would likely produce similar ISO performance to a 20 MP 1" sensor.

Personally, I found the 4K video intriguing. After the World Cup that just finished, I have been seriously considering a 4K HDTV for home, replacing my "ancient" 50" plasma HDTV with only 720p resolution.

Thanks, BarnET. That is what I was referring to in my post. A smaller sensor definitely has compromises, but as long as I got 4K, excellent AF performace on par with FZ1000, and a smaller body, I am game.

On article Sony A3000 First Impressions Review (681 comments in total)

I think the relative "bulk" size would kill the sale. So many times people would prefer a more compact size like NEX or RX100 precisely because of not wanting to carry something big.
