skytripper: Why in heaven's name would anyone with half a brain want to look at photos of this monster? Truly creepy!

You looked , then you have less than a half... You don't like it, don't look, don't speak for everyone.

disraeli demon: The XT10 looks so like the old Canon FX film SLR, every time I see one I get a twinge of nostalgia

Same here. Only to me it looks like Minolta SRT.

MysteryLemon: I just don't get it.

I didn't get it with Sony's offerings either.

If you want a camera better than your phone, get a camera, don't merge a camera lens and phone body to make some god awful mutant camera that will perform worse and be an ergonomic nightmare...

Many years ago people were saying the same about still photo snd video in one body...

redeye47: I don't understand why XL doesn't work on all m43 mount cameras. Help me out here.

Yeah.. I got excited first, since I have my old but trusted and perfectly working GH1 and a good set of Canon lenses with 7D, but then read this part... Well, I think I will give it a try anyway. If something happens to GH1, not a big loss.. will be an excuse for upgrade ;)

Cane: Why knock off a $250 lens?

For the same reason they're knocking off $30 phone chargers and selling them for $2.99. This is China!

China doesn't give a dam'. Just like former USSR didn't. And nobody can do anything...

On Nikon 1 J5 offers 20.8MP BSI sensor and revamped look article (152 comments in total)

Maybe I don't understand something, but what is the purpose of 4K video at 15 fps? Just another marketing gimmick?

On Kodak announces IM5 Android smartphone post (47 comments in total)

Unfortunately, Kodak is not a Kodak anymore, even if it says "Kodak" on it. It was sold out, and now whatever Chinese company that bought it is piggybacking on it's name hoping to sell their sub-par crap. Too bad, I loved Kodak...

On Leica M9 users report sensor corrosion issue article (378 comments in total)

Who cares about the sensor? The main concern is that red dot stays nice and shiny.

On All-in-one: Ona Capri bag review article (168 comments in total)

The best camera to fit this purse would be that pistol-gripped Sony RX100II called Hasselblad. One overpriced nonsense inside the other.
C'mon DPR, there are hundreds of excellent useful real gear bags, but you decided to review THIS??

Does it have a Duck-face effect filter?

On Mid-range Mirrorless camera roundup 2013 article (297 comments in total)
In reply to:

Adhinara: Which mirrorless camera do you reccomends for dental photography which my main concern are color reproduction for color matching in true natural colors and also macro photo 1:1 with minimal distortion? Since I need something compact and less bulk to carry in hand. Thanks alot for your comments:)

The camera itself is not that important as a good macro lens and lighting. I'm a dental lab tech/owner doing a lot of chairside assistance. I personally use my old Canon 20D with Canon 100mm f2.8 macro lens and Sigma EM-140 ring flash. Even though the camera is pretty old, the lens and the flash are excellent, the entire set looks very professional and is doing the job just fine.
Due to shade matching, I wouldn't recommend using any digital camera at all for that, because too many factors will affect the shade accuracy, such as white balance settings, mixed lighting conditions, viewing display calibration, etc.

Looking at this grip, the designer may have a chance to be hired by Beretta. :)

there are much cheaper ways to feed your nostalgia. About 50 bucks and ebay will do the job. For other purposes I'd better stick to my 5DmkII. And I can even shoot video with it! ;))
