crashpc: Please, add some older camera models in the comparison tool. It has been said many times and it would make good reference. I'm sure you'll find your time for 4-6 models... THX
I would guess their problem is they no longer have the cameras.
Sdaniella: looking forward to updates for better processing and newer PDAF of 7DMkIIstill missing on 5DMkIII, 6D, 1DX
hoping Canon uses full sensor res dual-ISO (or beyond dual-ISO) without half-res line skipping to give us live realtime HDR stills and HDR video (long overdue since no mfr yet offers it*)
option for RAW RAWs, flatter profiles, not just slightly cooked peaky RAWs
*except Arri Alexa's Dual Gain Architecture (DGA) sensor wired to process two gain levels (two ISOs) instead of one from todays mfrs
Rishi, I hope all this doesn't get you down. I think you add great value here and look forward to your future undertakings.
djrocks66: The 7D2 is for a sports or wildlife shooter on a budget. Enough with the DR talk. We all know how much better the Sony sensors are for that. Compare the D7100 buffer with the 7D2. Compare the AF and tracking, I dare you. :)
@ djrocks66 - Is there some aspect of the AF and tracking and buffer not compared in the review? Seemed like they were covered but I am curious if there is something else you had in mind?
DanK♂ FP6900: I looked at some image comparisons in this review and other sites with FujiFilm X-A1 and this and I don't know who would be smart enough to buy this overpriced POS with subpar IQ. When you can get better IQ in a smaller and cheaper package why bother with this at all? Yes, there are more features and lens options with this cam, but I personally don't need all that.
@ DanK♂ FP6900 - "why bother with this at all?" sounded like a question to me. Not that I disagree with you but I was pondering your question and now no question?
topstuff: For people looking to buy a camera for sport or action shooting, this camera looks excellent.
BUT, so does the Sony A77 Mk2. And the Sony is attractively priced as well as having the lenses most people are likely to need.
DPR really should give users a proper, informed opinion of both of these important cameras. DPR have not provided enough of a review of the A77Mk2 and I think they should do so asap.
Given that these two cameras occupy the same spot in the market, I think many people would find a proper comparison very helpful.
Come on DPR. Stop procrastinating. This comparison begs to be done asap.
Get on with it. :)
They also stated they weren't going to complete the A77 M2 review until the new firmware is available, which it now is. Given that AF tests seem to take a while to make sure they believe the results are meaningful it would seem likely to be a while before it is posted.
Peiasdf: I get less and less of the British humor DPReview like to post. Maybe it is a result of DP joining mothership in Seattle and the horrible weather there. Most sample image aren't interesting to look at. Good for technological analysis but simply don't wow unlike marketing material. If only DP can move to Florida, Arizona, California or Hong Kong.
Technical Assessment is the purpose I think.
No Canon or Nikon, what will the conspiracy theorists do?l
First time I have seen the brown feathers (lower left and upper right) look in focus. Wow.
What a great event. Getting this organized on the heels of Photokina is really an accomplishment. I saw some segments and look forward to catching up with the others.
Great job DPR!
Greg Gebhardt: I think I will just catch the printed version. It is not like this is an iPhone introduction
Thanks for sharing. I like how DPR is sharing different photographic experiences. It's what the hardware is for.
Thanks for sharing this DPR. Good to balance out the focus on hardware with focus on the experiences available to us.
I think it is because many people state that it has no value and should not be shown on this site. It may have no value to them but it doesn't mean it should not be shown on this site. It is interesting how many people look at something like this, quickly see they don't like it and don't just click away to something they do think has value to them, whether on dpr or not.
It kind of mirrors the numerous comments on other news/reviews where many people believe they speak for the dpr readership and offer critiques on that basis. They often cite the numbers of other similar complaints and believe that constitutes concensus.
When I go to image quality compared the Stylus 1 shows but it says Please Select a Camera instead of automatically bringing up the RX10. If I go to select the RX10 it is not in the list. Running IE 8.0.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Great job done by the DPR team to bring information to the photographic community.
marike6: Another camera choice for "Gear of the Year" based mostly on convenience for walking around?
This new DPR theme of staff exaggerating DSLR size and the amount of effort it takes to shoot a DSLR is getting a bit old.
When you consider all the great cameras released this past year to have an untested, unreviewed camera that is Pentax Q tiny, and really TOO SMALL for even average sized hands is truly puzzling. Add the fact that it has no eye level viewfinder or the possibility to add one, makes this "Best of the Year" choice suspect at best.
If convenience for walking around and size/weight have become the new criterion for judging "the best of the best" cameras on DPR, I'll be inclined to seek out other review sites more focused on actual photography and less focused on ease of use and portability.
marike6 - They are representing their personal choices. Different from absolute best of best claims. You have a lot of camera knowledge, why don't you create an article on your personal choices as a different persepctive?
Keep up the great work!
KBarrett: What the heck? Why are third-party lenses tested on the smallest available sensor with which they are compatible? Test it on a 1.5x crop APS-C sensor and make your results valid to a wider audience.
Thank you. I was wondering who @yabokkie viewed as "we". Is he/she on your staff?
Who is "we" in your statement?
They used a D1 X so maybe they can get that camera into the studio comparison tool.
