KonstantinosK: K-50: "Poor battery life" and "we recommend a spare.". 410 shots aren't THAT bad. You tried hard to find a third con, didn't you?

As you can with ANY dslr's battery grip!

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: I think Canon will see this as a good reason not to use other companies sensors. They will say that putting the Sony sensor in this camera was the reason it failed to produce the results they wanted.

Canon should just go back to their roots. Make a really good Rebel Camera with a Great new zoom lens. Make the lens fast with great AF for video but they need to figure out one way or another how to put a good sensor in it.

I don't care if they make it themselves or buy it from someone else. It needs to finally be as good or better than the competition. Then just advertise the heck out of it and they can get back on track.

Dude, Canon has been using sony sensors in the compacts and G-series years!

Michael_13: Canon probably should have also bought the image processor from Sony. It really is a shame that they were unable to give it proper performance.

DPR rated IQ higher on the Canon, so not needed dude.

Suave: Surprisingly reasonable price. Looks like someone at Canon has learned his lesson.

They recently lowered the prices of several newer lenses

RedFox88: Iso 16000 looks like a water painting.

That's no excuse. ISO 16000 doesn't need to be detail smearing oil painting rendition.

Adamant: When can we expect regular camera reviews to resume here on DPR? Car magazines manage to review dozens of vehicles every month. DPR has managed to review, what, two whole cameras since July?

First Impression review is a Preview renamed.

And would you pay $10\year to have another reviewer on staff to get more reviews done? If not, shut up.

BarnET: Ow man that's one pricey slow kit-zoom.

So on the end... you pay the same price for your lens. IS in camera doesn't mean cheaper lenses than Canon!

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2600 comments in total)
In reply to:

kadardr: One thing is sure: 7D MII is among the best ones in the APS-C bunch. Not behind of any. When I compare APS-C (7D MII this time) with full frame sensors the real difference is in the S/N ratio (noise level) and color depth. In that regard FF is better, way better from ISO 1600. Smaller sensors do not substitute FF, just complement it.

1 stop isn't that significant and in order to get the performance of the 7D2 in 35mm you have to Pat $6000

In reply to:

Timbukto: I see they added the original 7D. I'm astonished at how well it compares. I used the 700D as a baseline for what I thought the 7D would perform. I owned a 7D and a t3i before and IMO it performed slightly worse than the t3i. This last 7D test shows its still competitive. I understand that the 7D used a dual DIGIC architecture and perhaps alternating sensor readout processing and I'm now wondering despite the old design if something tightened up in their manufacturing processes for which the IQ of more recent 7D's have much improved? Can Dpreview staff comment as to the age of the 7D being tested? Then again I forgot the 700D probably has some PDAF pixels as well? The original 7D looks *far* better than the 700D, and it is either variance and improvement in the 7D, or variance in testing I would wager. Or strange significant drop of performance in the 700D that went unnoticed.

7D is Canon`s lowest noise 18 MP dslr. You get what you pay for.

In reply to:

PhotoKhan: When we initially access the comparison it is set up to show Jpeg samples of the 7DII on the top left pane, the 7D on the top right, the Nikon 7100 on the lower left and the Sony a6000 on the lower right pane.

When we switch to RAW, no mater in what particular area of the scene you click the sampler over it is extremely clear that the Sony is far superior to the other 3.

DPR used a new high end lens on the sony which is why in this comparison it looks clearer than others.

Joe Mayer: No real surprises. The mk2 seems a tad better than mk1 and still far behind FF.

1 stop, as it's always been, isn't "far" behind.

K E Hoffman: Gee I wanted to compare it to the Sony A77M2 which came out 5 months ago.. but nothing!!! DPR really? DO you need me to bring my camera down to you to get the job done.

Ironic that Amazon which is revolutionizing home delivery.. with same day delivery all over the nation.. owns a camera site that can't get a set of test shots out in 5 months...

Dude, why are you even here if you think there is a conspiracy that doesn't exist? They produce more reviews then ever though they've been short handed with review staff lately.

BTW, the Pentax K-3 looks amazing.

Amazing what one person sees because they want to see. I see same noose in the k3 as the others.

In reply to:

R Johns: It seems like a fine camera. However...

I just want to ask Canon why they made it so you could wirelessly Live View and adjust Exposure from a smartphone on the 70D, but the 7D MKII you cannot...

Given the 7D MKII already has a fixed LCD, this seems like a MAJOR ball was dropped... lol

The 7D2 has a more metal body than the 70D which is why wifi isn't in the 7D2

stratplaya: Wow. DPR feels that no 4K video in a smartphone is a con. I wonder what they will call this little gem?

Where did they state that? Last I saw them state was they hadn't seen 4k in a phone that showed any benefit over recording just 1080.

Joe Ogiba: No 4K is a showstopper for me. I might get the new waterproof 4K Verizon Sony Xperia Z3v when my 2 year contract expires for my HTC Droid DNA in January. It also has wireless charging and 128GB Micro SDXC support.

You know DPR has yet to see a phone that records 4k video that actually records detail worth using that recording mode over using 1080, right? They've posted that before. 4k in a phone as.of now is just recording unnessasary large amounts of data. The s5 takes 128gb cards.

Jogger: Why is colour information so important in automotive applications? Wouldnt they just go monochrome and gain the efficiency of not having the colour filters.

Consumers, people just like color and it's as simlle as that.

RedFox88: Google sold off their Motorola phone business a few months ago at a huge loss hanging onto patents.

Sorry but your link doesn't work. The news item I saw when it happened was about $10 billion to buy Motorola then google sold it off for $2 billion. That's a huge loss!
