More phony baloney from Adobe. But at least we won't be seeing it for another four or five versions.
Achiron: I wanna see an image enlarged 100% using the twist fill. might be trippy.
Don't you mean crippy?
Pat Cullinan Jr: Is the X100T orb-free?
Is acquiring an orb-free example a crapshoot?
>Only the X10 had orb issues, its big brother the X100 did not.
I'm glad to learn this. Thank you very much.
We can always add our own orbs with Photoshop. ;-)
Pat Cullinan Jr: I'm not understanding the "Unlike" thing. Can someone illuminate? I just parachuted in.
I gave you a Like on it.

I get it. These are FIXED-fixed-lens cameras.
M Jesper: These are great cameras, but if you're lucky you can find the good 'old' Olympus E-M10 with BOTH the 14-42mm and 40-150mm dual lens kit for less than that.
It's a very, VERY good starters kit. Good EVF, touchy-flippy screen, superb IBIS, superb sensor, advanced controls, and instantly fast AF, etc. etc.
How about an out-of-production-being-sold-at-knock-down-prices roundup?
Miki Nemeth: Completely agree, in this category the A5100 is excellent. But it has a number of severe limitations: terrible overheating (I use mine with Atomos Ninja2), no audio input (again no problem to me since the Ninja2 has a mic-in plug), no flash-shoe (it would be great to have the multi-interface connector shoe), no 4K recording. On the other hand, I completely disagree with the comment that the touch-operability is not OK; it is really limited (no touch menu operations) but the smooth focus pull with a touch, and touch-to-magnify, touch-to-shoot is brilliant and that is what really count on a camera.
Nice, terse review, Miki. Hat tip!
Jonathan F/2: Lack of an EVF is a major con against the A5100. Any camera with no EVF/OVF should be bumped from contention.
>>some people don't care for the bulkiness of a DSLR
Wow, you said it! Having been taking photos for 60 years, my all-time favorite camera is the Sony RX100. Which doesn't have a viewfinder!
RedDog Steve: 2016 ?Only two of these are less than a year since being introduced.
Marty, you know the score!
photosen: If you're reading this to get into photography remember you can also buy an older model, new or used, even from a higher tier, for the same money; however strong the lure of tech is, you will always make a much bigger difference than the camera. While I have a recent 70D I have no problem still using the 30D I got in 2008, knowing its limitations. In other words you can make a small investment, still get superb gear and get great shots.
>>you can also buy an older model
That's my new hobby. I buy 10-year-old cameras from ebay for fifty or a hundred dollars, play with them for a while, and then dish 'em out to the kids. It's great fun and satisfaction.
>>there are plenty who don't care for one
With respect, Brendon, the all-important question for the industry is, HOW MANY people are there who don't care for a viewfinder?
I would love it if DPR could trigger a viewfinder stampede among the manufacturers.
Pat Cullinan Jr: I would like DPR to always assign the absence of a VF to the Cons column.
By the way, conversely to my earlier statement, I would also like DPR to always cite the presence of a viewfinder in the Pros column (unless it would be terribly redundant to do so, as would be the case with DSLR's like the Canon EOS 80D, for example). This would spare the reader the effort of rifling the web to uncover the information.
Thank you very much.
I think most people would be happy with a viewfinder, no matter how rudimentary. My first digicam was the tiny 7MP Sony P150. It was equipped with a primitive optical viewfinder capable of zooming! It enabled me to take multiple raking images which, when stitched, made very nice panoramas. It was also beneficial in steadying the camera, which didn't have image stabilization. And finally, I resorted to the viewfinder when bright sunlight made the LCD difficult to see. The quality of the image of a viewfinder does not engage me so much as the fact that IT IS THERE.
I would like DPR to always assign the absence of a VF to the Cons column.
Sannaborjeson: Another company mining for our data.
We're doomed. I'll not get over it.
Hat tip to DPR for a stellar review.
Evaluation of mirror- and shutter-shock should become a staple of camera reviews. This will prod the manufacturers to devote more effort to the problem.
badbob42mk1: no 4K ( 120fps) , 14 stop DR, no Titanium frame, no storm sealing, , gps, touch, no 18 fps, no 3 card slots, no joy stick, not full frame, no brick like build ..... what were canon thinking?
No beer spigot, no jumbo speakers, no arm rests, no voice-actuated power switch, no patent hag which comes out and prophesies a rise in the Turkish stock market, no magic fingers...
eno2: With this camera Canon will celebrate the 7'th anniversary of using that 18 Mp old sensor, again and again and again....
I still haven't sold my T2i with Tokina 11-16mm. Great RAW images.
