On article The Canon that can: Canon EOS 80D Review (677 comments in total)

I'm not a canonian, but I expected gold honestly.
Especially since the 70D got it...
Yet I think it's one of the best APS-C DSLR today, alongside Sony's A77II.

Tariag: 15 stops.
THIS is the important part of the news.
Impressive.

I missed that Phase One announcement. My bad, sorry.

smurkjeh: Hi,

I have a 700D at the moment and want to upgrade, I was thinking about going for the 7Dmk2 until the specs for the Canon 80D were unveiled. I do a mixture of photography - landscapes, sport, portraiture, astro etc. so I figured the 80D with the 45AF points would be enough - but this review doesn't sound too positive about VF AF subject tracking - is it still worth going for do you think over the 7dmk2? I'd be pairing the camera up with a Sigma 150-600 (c) when I get it and tracking wildlife/BIF etc. but action/wildlife photography wouldn't be the biggest percentage of what I shoot.

For wildlife the 7D2 is ahead but for everything else I would choose the 80D...

Sony E or A?

TwoMetreBill: As Hassy lenses are made by Fuji, at least some of them, a few bucks can be saved by picking up the same quality in the X-mount.

Another precious advice from someone who never shot with a Blad...

raztec: Pardon my ignorance, but what can these cameras and lens combination do that a Nikon D810 with a pro lens can't for 1/4 the price?

Better DR on the sensor.
Better Sharpness on the lenses (i.e. lenses are individually, fully tested, you really get the sharpness they claim).
Great PP software.

Tariag: TZ100 has good 4K video? Nice... But why the hell the type of people who use a 30x travel zoom would need to shoot 4K videos?

I agree, but I just don't see the point of mentioning 4K video in that context... Stick to what's really useful and make it shorter!

On article Canon announces budget-friendly EOS Rebel T6 (1300D) (895 comments in total)

I'm totally not the average/intended customer of that camera, but I may buy one, for when I travel and don't want to take my FF DSLR along (for weight as well as theft reasons).
So I'll buy the cheapest DSLR (why DSLR and not mirrorless? Sensor size, responsiveness and low light AF, at the same price level, don't satisfy me for now), maybe this one, maybe a similar one from Nikon or Sony...

In reply to:

dlinney: Having taught DSLR photography to beginners for many years let me suggest a profile for the typical buyer of this camera: he/she will shoot JPEG, will shoot in full auto-mode and will use the output pictures as is with little or no post-processing. Concepts such as shooting RAW or lifting shadows in PP are no yet in their vocabulary. They will assume the AF system works without needing to know the different AF modes. They will read an article on "20 ways to improve your photography" but give up when it simply confuses them (it took me two full days of a hands-on course to teach what such articles expect to cover in 2 pages). Enthusiasts will tell them to shoot RAW and shoot in manual mode and their photography will deteriorate and they will revert to full auto.

So, evaluate this camera against this scenario. Comments about an outdated sesnsor etc. are simply irrelevant: does it produce good Jpegs? End of story.

@dlinney
I teach DSLR photography (and PP) to beginners too and I have *exactly* the experience you describe :)

On article CP+ 2016: Things we found that had been cut in half (135 comments in total)

What I would like to know now, is HOW those lenses have been cut. I guess you don't just pick a saw and cut...
Also some look "cleaner" than others... Filed, maybe?

I'm saying that 4K is useless for the people who buy those cameras.

On article Nifty fifty: Hands-on with the Hasselblad H5D-50c Wi-Fi (133 comments in total)

Interestingly, most of your impressions (negative and positive) are the same since the beginning of the HxD system...
I have shot a lot with an H3D-21, many years ago, and this looks just like a slightly upgraded one. Blads don't evolve much, at each new generation it's only 1 or 2 function added... that's a little sad, and considering the price I would like to see more innovation. There is range for that!
Yet I'm sure it's a wonderful camera and Phocus is IMHO the best PP software ever, I love it.

Far better than previous generation, but still a lot of moire in the video...
For a video usage, Sony or Canon are far from beaten.

On article Heavy hitter: Sony FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM first shots (350 comments in total)

Why dropping the Zeiss name for high end? Is the license too expensive? Or is the GM range under the CZ range (between G and CZ)?

Also I wonder how this lens compares to the A-mount CZ 24-70...

On article Size matters: Hands-on with Canon PowerShot G7 X (176 comments in total)

It sounds cute, a good alternative to the RX100 III...
But I will keep my G1X II, because I love it's unofficially-bouncing-flash so much.
I they could have included it in this G7X, I would have considered a switch...

My biggest complaint is about exposure. Why did they went for an individual exposure? It makes like a "bubble" picture!
With same exposure for all subsensors, they may be less DR but a far better looking result imho.
Then I also clearly see an optical resolution limit (don't know if it's the main lens or the sublenses), but I think this can be improved too...

In reply to:

cheenachatze: Why do they charge so much for this "Power Zoom" lens? Every $100 camera has "Power Zoom" lens. These small lenses require less material to make, and it's not like Panasonic has amazing manufacturing technologies that are light years ahead of Canon, Nikon etc., so why are they charging such prices for their lenses? Panasonic 20mm F1.7 retails as much as Canon 50mm F1.4. How do they justify that?

Development costs.
Exclusivity
These lenses have whole new optical formulas, while Canon's 50mm have at least 50 years...
The "power zoom" is the only one on the market.
Panasonic is a real, serious lens manufacturer, don't understimate them.

GoCUBuffs: Looks like it lost image stabilization from gf3? Seemed to be a nice additional feature on the prime lenses that don't come w/ stabilization built in.

NO panasonic camera has in-camera stabilization.
It's always in the lens!
