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.

On Nikon D7200 First Impressions Review preview (1026 comments in total)

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 (638 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 (2364 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.

For a Fujifilm X shooter, this is the best news so far in 2015. Step up the game for all.

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?

On Fujifilm announces XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR lens article (295 comments in total)

I true pro level mirrors system is (almost) complete now.

Still need a good flash system and such, an upgrade to the Pro 1, but we will see the within months. Canikon is really history IMO.
Last wish, hope Fujifilm will not go FF.

On Enthusiast mirrorless camera roundup (2014) article (309 comments in total)
In reply to:

lacikuss: These comparisons should be done based on target market rather than camera technology.

I would like this:

Best Landscape Cameras
Best Sports Cameras
Best Family Cameras
Best Pocketable Cameras
Best Video Cameras
Best Camera under $500
Best Camera under $1000
Best Camera under $1,500

See you're (dpr) still very much focused on product and very little on customer segment. Focus on customer needs and you'll be better off.

Well, you have eight categories... each category would need several cameras to make it worthwhile, right? How many cameras have been released this year?

On Sony announces US pricing for full-frame Alpha 7 II article (177 comments in total)

$1700 seems to be a fair price for a high end mirrorless. This was the X-pro1 price two years ago, and for the X-PRO 2 I expect the same, or slightly less...

Frankly, I don't see any camera these days justifying a price over $1700, full frame DSLR included.

On Apple iPhone 6 Plus camera review post (205 comments in total)

"Despite its nominally lower resolution than most competitors in the high-end bracket of the smartphone market in our brightly lit studio scene the Apple iPhone 6 Plus performs very well and squeezes more detail out of its 8MP image sensor than some 13MP models. Thanks to a well-balanced approach to noise reduction and sharpening it is even very close to the 16MP Samsung Galaxy S5. "

They are precisely 2 years "close" IMO. The iPhone 7s will probably be "very close" to the Samsung Galaxy S5...
