crashpc: Please, add some older camera models in the comparison tool. It has been said many times and it would make good reference. I'm sure you'll find your time for 4-6 models... THX

So... you want them to add old cameras you can't buy new anymore instead of working on new reviews?! It'd take someone weeks (maybe 6 weeks) to aggressive 6 cameras and you'd upset some by not putting their old camera in just "for fun"

On Nikon D750 Review preview (1175 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tap0: "The main competitor to the D750 is Canon's EOS 6D"..... the main competitor to the D750 is the D610 ....

Yes, the d750 is a warmed over d610 with cosmetic changes.

RedFox88: A bit of a contradiction, DPR: you can't have a Pro being "best in class burst mode" but a Con being "limited buffer affects continuous shooting". They cancel each other out. Fouls on both teams: replay the down.

But it's a pro and a con in the review. No disputing that fact.

mpgxsvcd: Time to break out the Platinum award!

Not for a d610 in a cosmetic makeover as many nikon users have complained.

Jackinthebox: just what does "optional" mean for wifi? I would very much like this camera but do want GPS and wifi to be able to control the camera from an Android device.

Links don't work here. Sorry dude.

On Sony Alpha 77 II firmware update improves AF speed article (153 comments in total)
In reply to:

SRHEdD: As an old Nikon guy, after my D600 flaked and D800 had white spots, I jumped ship. This is a great camera, and for a change I actually HAVE a camera that gets a great firmware upgrade! As good as it WAS, it is very noticeably faster now! You get so many creative hardware scenarios with Sony, and they have the lenses I need. Not as many as Canikon to be sure, but very nice lenses in my wheelhouse. The 16-50/2.8 is a great kit zoom, but a little heavy. And having an A6000 as a second kit, using the same flashes, microphones, etc. is very satisfying (I can even share lenses with a LA-EA4!). Even my Sony P/S uses the same basic menus and I can add a mic to its hotshoe on a windy day. That's three different formats/mounts using shared kit. THAT'S how to build a system. Great job Sony! I'm with you for the long haul! ...Now to get that new A7ii to fill out my bag!

Half baked at launch doesn't make a firmware "fix" a great thing!

On High-end full frame roundup (2014) article (541 comments in total)
In reply to:

zakk9: Isn't it a bit strange to call it "High-end full frame roundup" and include the low-end D610, 6D and A7 but not the high end 1DX and D4s?

This is listed as enthusiast roundup. 1D X and d4s are pro models.

In reply to:

Abratech: big mistake leaving out the Nikon D4s and Canon EOS 1DX - now we don't have an all inclusive report.

Sorry but this is a roundup of enthusiast full frame. There are only 2 pro 35mm cameras so that isn't much of a roundup.

SteB: Olympus are the most innovative of all the Camera manufacturers. Remember live view first appeared on an Olympus camera. Olympus film SLRs had TTL flash metering long before the other manufacturers. When Olympus innovates, all the others soon follow. The original Olympus OM 35mm film SLR was the first compact film SLR, soon all the others followed. They may not have the resources of the bigger manufacturers to sustain their technological leads, but they are always ahead of the curve with innovation.

And yet they can't turn a profit and have executives that hide losses with fake expenses.

On High-end pocketable compacts 2013 roundup article (264 comments in total)
In reply to:

Paderborn: Why oh why have viewfinders disappeared from point and shoot cameras? Having to push the camera out at arms length to look at the screen virtually eliminates any possibility of candid photography. I find it far easier to shoot discreetly with a Canon 7D with a bolt on battery grip!

Why? People choose the bigger 100% viewfinder on the back of the camera: the lcd. OVFs on p&s cameras were not TTL and had ~ 75% coverage. Pathetic.

On High-end pocketable compacts 2013 roundup article (264 comments in total)
In reply to:

AVISAN: For those who feel the need to brag on their other camera and how great it is compared to other cameras.that's great for you but next time post it in that "I own it" section of that camera, not the Cannon S120. Try to stay on point because If I thought your camera was the best choice, I would have bought it.
The Cannon S120 is $200 less than the Sony and that's significant to me if not everyone else. The quality of the pictures are better than my HTC One phone camera and much easier to steady for level, well framed shots. The speed ring on the lens is great for quick adjustments. I love the touch screen viewfinder for quick focus fields and the battery life is pretty good but maybe not the best.
This camera is very pocket-able with reasonable weight. I use the Wi-Fi function all the time, allowing me to show my pictures in a larger format on my tablet or Lap top which automatically uploads to Drop Box.
There may be better cameras out there, but for the size and price I'm very content.

It's Canon, dude.

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!

On Canon PowerShot G7 X Review preview (411 comments in total)
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

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.
