Dazzer8888: Great stuff, photoshop used only to enhance an already well chosen composition, no sunsets, lightning strikes or beautiful horses needed..........

brendon1000 - there is no shortage of beautiful buildings. Most of the buildings displayed are open to public and photographed from the street.

In reply to:

arhmatic: If anyone in power is reading this, please relax the rules around the US embassies. I happened to be outside the US embassy (in a NATO country, if this makes any difference to some) in the street... when I was violently approached by US Embassy security. Totally useless use of force.

Apparently, you can't pull your phone out of your pocket in the vicinity of a US Embassy fence. You can't stop a car by the curb... and so on.

oh, a lot of comments here... all I meant is --- be kind, people will be kind in exchange... Don't be brutal, be friendly.

I vote to boycott these products. Is there a good reason for GPS not to be included in any camera? - other than greedy camera makers hoping to charge for them separately?

GPS is now part of almost every little tiny mobile phone. The chip is tiny and inexpensive... It could be just included with a minimal effort... Additionally, I personally refuse to have a dongle attached to my already bulky and bully SLR, AND it take up a camera port, that could be used for something else.

Tharaphita: As a Nikon users im happy for Fuiji users and can only hope Nikon would actually offer new features via firmware. ! Way to go Fuiji

@HBowman - fujis are not too small. Your Nikon is unnecessaryly bully and fat.

It's just the right size for a camera, just like most film cameras have been over the decades.

DPReview, how do you decide which reader to showcase?
Are you taking submissions? I am sure many would be interested, if you give us an equal chance.

Dropbox is 1tb for 99/year - less space, more money, but easy to connect all your devices. But the benefit is, never need to worry about file type and such, all is included.

Nikon, why in the work are you refusing to include GPS?

Every phone has it now. Please don't suggest I get the dongle, I will never get it.

On Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview (648 comments in total)

While video is secondary and probably sees little use, it's still unacceptable to see it falling so far behind every other camera out there.

I see that the video mode scored the lowest in this review. Needs a major step up for for X-T2

arhmatic: Bulky! ---Not trying to defend Sony, but I could imagine that reducing bulkiness was on their list of things to do. Not done and not because someone accidentally crossed it off ... there are probably many technical reasons for the lenses being as large as they are.

@Joseph, I understand why they are not smaller, but I always find it odd to see so many comments here "reminding" Sony how large their lenses are, like someone make them large on purpose. They are what they are, for good reason. Let it be.

On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (3410 comments in total)
In reply to:

Lisa O: At $3699 and $3899 seems like about $1000 too much.
Interesting to see is which lenses will hold up to this resolution.

I personally don't believe any camera should cost more than 2000$, regardless of what it does.

arhmatic: Canon and all camera makers, please add GPS.

I know why you are not doing it, please stop being nasty and obnoxious and add GPS. Thanks!

To all camera makers - just because you refuse to add GPS does not mean that I will just run and get your $200 dongle. Could be free, I don't want attachments. Period. All you are getting is some grumpy camera users, cursing you every day while manually adding the GPS data. Countless overall hours, better spend enjoying Photography. You marketing execs simply need to grow up!

Why would everything has to come to the USA?
Yes, it's a large market, there is plenty of money outside.

bluevellet: The clip-on flash in the EM5 II looks like the least useless clip-on flash I've ever seen. :)

frankly, I can't believe it just comes with the camera...

The weight, size are not posted... Am I missing anything?

Or maybe this is omitted, for a reason?
