On Canon's Q4 earnings report shows camera sales are down article (279 comments in total)
In reply to:

jrkliny: I have been waiting for years to upgrade but Canon seems extremely slow to introduce significant improvements.

Jrklny, then next week should catch your interest. Confidence is high that a new 5d is to ne released, possibly a third later on this year.

Well, all I can say is that there is a Canon Rumor about a high mp DSLR to be released shortly. Of course, it may not be really 54mp, won't know for sure until they release the specs.

Perfectly.

joe6pack: The list look fine to me. But A7 II rated best? How many readers actually touched the camera? Let alone trying or owning?

Barney, so you are the reason we have so many "Sony the One and Only" trolls on the Nikon and Canon forums (humor intended).

Tom_A: A fun overview but how many voters have real hands on experience
with the products they voted for?

Does fondling one at Best Buy count?
How about just licking the monitor screen?

Zeisschen: Surprise surprise!

Only mirrorless cameras on top. Times have changed ;)

DP does seem to promote what interests them most, not what is the best overall choice for the amateur or pro.

ttran88: Looks like Canon has taken 2014 off..

2014 was a year for new Canon lenses.
Rumors are that 2015 will see at least a couple of new FF bodies.

MPA1: How can that Sony win - it's not even in the shops in NZ yet!

In Sacramento, neither of the camera stores I frequent carry any of Sony's products. I think Best Buy and Fry's do, but that is like shopping for your photo gear in a supermarket's hardware isle.

Mark Alan Thomas: Wherein people vote for and against cameras they'll never own.

Or bash a particular photographer's photos when they will never take as good an image.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7 flips for selfies article (373 comments in total)
In reply to:

PeterTom: I do not shoot (many) selfies, but the flipping screen may be useful also for other purposes. It would be twice more useful (IMO) if it would not only flip but also rotate (swivel is the right word? the descriptions on DPReview name it "fully articulated").
I shot many pictures in portrait orientation and many times I would like to have them shot easily from waist level or ground level without the need of doing additional gymnastics (with my current Canon Rebel).

But many m4/3 cameras have only flip screen.
Actually, it seems that there the only m/4 cameras with "fully articulated" screen are the SLR-sized GH4 and G6 (and when I look for m4/3 I want to downsize my equipment).
Why m4/3 cameras tend ignore the portrait orientation (how many of the current)?
Would it be so much more complicated to make, for example, this screen fully articulated?

I am with you on that portrait orientation, but don't even own a DSLR with a tilt screen. I shoot vertical orientation a lot but from the eye level optical finder on my Canon 6D. Wish more FF DSLR's had tilting screens and touch screens as well.

Seems to be limited to a particular segment of the production run which would indicate manufacturing rather than design problems.

Congrats to Nikon for recognizing the problem and being on top of the remedy.

Still like my Canon though.

Seriously doubt that Apple Inc in impersonating thousands of Flickr users. But your "fear" is noted.

Didn't say it wasn't. The article is about pictures posted on Flickr. You do seem a bit off the mark on the subject under discussion.

Papi61, Samsung was right up there that is why I excluded it from comparison with Mot, LG, HTC. So apparently Samsung does have a large following.

No reason to be snarky or overly defensive.

Recent production problems aside Nikon seems to be very concerned about their reputation. Recalling stock off the shelf speaks to that commitment.

In reply to:

Frank C.: If both mirrorless and conventional dslrs were suddenly created today, which would people flock to?

The one with the best selectipn of lenses, flash and accessories. IQ and speed of the body would also be important, but usually the lenses last through several generation of bodies and new tech.
