GaryJP: Thought I'd stumbled into the Sony marketing department when I read that headline. Good lord.

Haha. You did. That's what DPReview is all about these days.

nicoboston: Nice article!

In 2001 I purchase a Powershot G2 after reading the DPR conclusion:

"And the whole point is the G2 is a camera that just works, it does exactly what its supposed to and it does it well, and consistently."

A few years later, I got a G10 for the same reasons.

They have been my 2 favorite compact cameras.

I like reading your tests and reviews, but I couldn't care less about scores, awards, rankings and brands. IMO, the perfect camera is the one that "does exactly what its supposed to and it does it well, and consistently". These are the cameras that give us a chance to capture moments of eternity.

My photo albums and web galleries do not contain exif data. They just contain memories and emotions.

That must have been before DPReview developed its anti Canon bias. hard to find favorable references to Canons these days. This article is a good example. I pretty much ignore their opinions.

On article Macphun Aurora HDR version 1.2 update released (24 comments in total)

I'm trying it. So far, about 20 minutes in with five 5DIII Raw files and it's still working. 2010 MacBook Pro might be part of the slowness.

Ok, couple of minutes later it's done. Can't save result with the trial so it's hard to say how good it is. Think I'll stick with Photomatix Essentials.

On article In Fine Detail: Canon EOS 5DS / 5DS R In-Depth Review (667 comments in total)

I wonder why DPReview bothers with the "have you spotted an error?" link on their stats page. Weeks later they still have the 5Ds/R only bracketing 3 images while in reality it will do 2,3,5 or 7. Just like the 5DIII, 6D, 70D, 7DII, etc. It's not like they want to minimize the abilities of this camera is it?

trulandphoto: "a lot of pros may be wondering: 'if I ditch my DSLR for some of the advanced AF features the a7R II offers, will I be sacrificing low-light AF performance?'"

I sincerely doubt that. Only in DPReview world would such a question be asked.

How much is Amazon paying Sony?

My sincere apologies. obviously Sony would be paying Amazon. Sometimes I can only read this stuff with the aid of some good Scotch. Cheers.

On article New GF: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7 flips for selfies (398 comments in total)

Please get this article off the front page. Every time I look and see "Selfie" prominently displayed on DPReview I wonder why I bother.

On article Tamrac launches rugged-looking photo messenger bags (106 comments in total)

Interestingly, Tamrac has yet to put them on their website. Or is this something that will take a while to get to the States.

This might just be my next EOS-M lens. But do I get EF mount so I can use it with my 7D and the adapter on the EOS-M or the EF-M mount version?

borisz: I would also recommend the lesser known, but very good Zoner Photo Studio Pro (actually ver. 15), quite similar to ACDSee

Canon's DPP is free and does it for me. Except for HDR then Phomatatix Essentials suffices.

The bottom line is how does AFP, who are paying the freight, feel about the images? If they're happy who cares.

The Google docs link worked for me once I waited for the document to load fully and then clicked on download original.
