joe6pack: The list look fine to me. But A7 II rated best? How many readers actually touched the camera? Let alone trying or owning?

I gave one of my votes to the A7II simply because it exists. Pushing the envelope the way Sony does deserves at least that much i think :)

larrytusaz: McDonald's sells more hamburgers than the local place which makes fresh hamburgers, but that hardly means that McDonald's hamburgers are better. It just means some people are either lazy, in a hurry, or have no taste.

This tells something about Flickr instead of Apple or Nikon... The site that used to be a nice place where photographers would gather and shared their work and thoughts is now more like a dumping ground for smartphone snaps.

sebastian huvenaars: Ah flickr, the site that used to harbor photographers... Most of my flickr friends have left the scene by now, maybe i should do the same. Hardly ever visit that train wreck...

None, hardly ever share photo's anymore. It's a shame perhaps, but that's what it is... Tried some other sites but missed the community aspect there.

Flickr brought me a lot of fun in photography but also took some away.

ttran88: Very ambitious predictions, I wonder what Nikon and Canon have to say about that.

Canon probably see's that it's impossible ;)

On Canon announces five PowerShot compacts article (150 comments in total)

typo in press release:

"MELVILLE, N.Y., January 5, 2007 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the addition of three new super-zoom cameras to its PowerShot SX line-up: the PowerShot SX530 HS, the PowerShot SX710 HS and the PowerShot SX610 HS digital cameras."

There, corrected :)

In reply to:

arhmatic: Maybe it's just me, but I see this camesas looking more and more like a melted soap bar. I miss the days when bodies had straight, clean lines. They were also much smaller, for the same full frame film...

Funny, soap bars tend to follow the shape of your hands over time... Aesthetics vs ergonomics.

(i do like the look of straight lines better by the way)

In reply to:

nerd2: Put in D800 shutter box (1/8000 max shutter, 1/250 sync, 8fps max shooting) and this would be THE successor of D700. Yes I know it will never happen. Yes I know D750 is still the best all-around FF camera overall out there.

D700 had a 200 base iso with a max shutter speed of 1/8000. The D750 offers ISO 100 and 1/4000. So bright condition/wide aperture shooters don't really miss out on that by upgrading actually...

In reply to:

ecm: I still wish there could be some older cameras added as comparison points - it would make the samples so much more relevant and useful if I had in hand any of the cameras in the list....

Samuel, i'm aware of that review. Only meant that it would be cool to have an old cam (like R1) shooting the modern studio comparison setup.

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: What are we all complaining about? Just 6 years ago we had pathetic burst rates, 12 Megapixels was the Max instead of the min available, Video was non existent, Quiet shutters were almost unheard of, Auto Focus was only slightly better than manual focus, and the cameras cost more than they do today.

If you can't take great pictures and videos with the latest cameras then you really can't blame the camera anymore.

Lol, i should have seen that one coming...

ttran88: Just a quick observation of some GOLD awarded cameras in 2014:

Sony A7R-- 82%. GOLD
Fujifilm XT-1 84% GOLD
Olympus E-M10 80% GOLD
Pentax K-3 83% GOLD
Panasonic GH4 84% GOLD
Nikon D750 90% GOLD

Canon where are you???

NWT, score and award should be seen as separate. Score as an objective assessment and award for the way DPR felt about using the camera... Or thats what i understood in earlier made statements on this subject :)

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview (1235 comments in total)
In reply to:

sneakyracer: Overall the 7D2 is a superb Camera Body looking for a better sensor. The Image Quality in both Stills and Video is Competent but not class leading. It is a shame because everything else is superb. (could use WiFi though).

"I was told by Canon engineers that the only reason for WiFi being omitted in the 7D Mark II was that it just wasn't technically feasible to get it (or rather fit it) into that body design."

That's Canon, seeing impossible...

In reply to:

whyamihere: I can't wait to see the results of this year's 'Readers Poll of Products They've Never Used But Have Deep-Seated Opinions On'!

No, that's unfair... that doesn't sufficiently encompass everyone on DPR. This is also the 'Readers Poll of Products They Are Temporarily Happy With Until The Next Shiny Thing Comes Along and Buyer's Remorse or Gear Acquisition Syndrome Kicks In'.

Either way, feel free to self-implicate.

It's a nice opportunity to express your feelings when it comes to developments in photographic technologies. Which products are following a route route you like to see being followed? Something like that....

Or at least, that's how i voted.

I'm using a D800 by the way, still no buyers remorse ;)
