Woodlink: Wish it did come in black, but bought one anyway.
Black won't make it take better pictures.
Would look great though.
Lee Jay: "5 must-have iPad apps for every photographer"
I'm a photographer. I don't have an iPad, or any other Apple products of any sort. In fact I don't have a tablet of any sort either. Getting a decent smartphone got rid of any interest I had in a tablet.
Guess it's not for every photographer, huh?
maizhan: My vote is for Snapseed, absolutely.
Totally agree, much quicker and great filters.
Nice pictures spoiled by a really terrible website. Some horrible scrolling nonsense with a magnification option that just zooms in on the existing resolution image which if course looks terrible. Probably cost a fortune too. There is nothing fashionable about bad user interfaces.
Excellent, especially for lens reviews.
100$???? Ridiculous fad for ridiculous people.
Extremely poor review of an extremely poor product. The reviewer totally fails to take into account the ridiculous price when saying this like "Home button access aside, the iPhone Lens Dial is a good option for folks who want a solid case with multiple lens options."
No it isn't because it's a rip off. Ok, token mention of the prices but come on, it should have been slated as an over expensive gimmick.
Collett: Looks interesting to me - as a complement to my other Canon DLSR's. This form factor will be sweet when coupled with a 24-28mm pancake lens. Too many issues with Canon's mirrorless, especially w/r/t focus. The size and weight is small enough to keep many Canon DSL shooters from trying 4/3's, Sony Nex, Oly, Fuji - etc. as a supplement to their DLSR. Why not have the functionality of a DLSR, small size, and the ability to swithch lenses with your other Canon bodies compaired to the alternatives? I have an older Rebel that my wife uses and I use when I want to travel light, and this or its successor will likely be that camera body's successor - if they don't come up with a FF version of the same (understadably a bit larger) :-)
Agreed, will be very interesting to see it in the flsh.
This is really sad news. Not at all surprising though, and perhaps good news for the few remaining independents.
David247: The best camera is always the camera you have in hand, but this poll is a popularity rating. There are many good cameras these days, in fact you have to go out of your way to find a bad camera. Not every camera can be in the list. A lower "popular" rating does not make a camera bad. Not making the list doesn't make a camera bad. I grew up in a time when large format and medium format were still the kings. 35mm, including Leica was often considered a "toy" camera due to "poor image quality". However versatility and portability of 35mm won the heart of "field" journalists". It was 35mm, with its then inferior image quality, that made photography popular as it is today. Look back into the photos of the 50's and 60's. Many of the images were seriously substandard in quality, but their spontaneity and reality changed the world. In the end it is always the photographer that makes the image and the difference. Pick the tool that works best for you. No bad choices here.
Absolutely true. If this method was applied to music or books then 50 shaed of grey would be better than all of Shakespear's works, and Katy Perry would be better than Pink Floyd or Frank Sinatra.
Will the old scene be preserved somewhere in a museum? I'm only half joking - it's been extremely important to may people (and no doubt manufacturers) over the years and it would be a real shame if it all went in the bin!
Trondster: Noooo - no Baileys logo! That tree has been the definition of sharpness for ages!!
I think this is an essential move - to separate mobile and traditional photography, and it allows dpreview top get a foothold in the technology side of mobile photography. Well done!
scotbot: It's a shame that the expand images function has been lost - only one post can be expanded at a time and it's still small. That's a real shame on a PHOTOGRAPHY orientated forum.
It also seems to default back to the really annoying threaded view after replying to a post from flat view.
I appreciate the upgrade but it's ruined the photo-sharing functionality by keeping everything small.
Thanks, the old large size expanded images were great for viewing picture threads. Also great to see you're on the case with the mobile version!

Trevor Carpenter: I love all these comments and the way they show that for every person you please you upset another. I don't often feel sorry for politicians but they have this problem every day.
A couple of points of my own.What's all the fuss about flat and threaded I use both in different circumstances and the default is whatever I left it asThe one thing I miss compared to other forums is a count of how many readers , not just repliers. It puts a lot of perspective around the importance of the subject to the general reader.
Yes, number of views would be very useful
Excellent. We need to be able to use the BBcode or HTML code from Flickr to insert images within posts, as on almost every other board on the Internet!
HUGE MISTAKE. Sony is infamous for making their systems propriety and seem to have totally overlooked the fact that there will be hardly any apps compared to the hundreds available for Android. The camera will succeed as it will no doubt produce excellent images but no-one is going to care about the apps.
Why is the desktop version far more expensive than the iOS version?
