    NWT, your criticism misses the mark completely. The scores and the awards are two independent things. DPR has clearly explained that they have no relation to each other. If they were supposed to be...

    @NWT
    There are three things you need to keep in mind when it comes to DPR's scores and awards:
    1. Scores are only comparable within the same category of camera.
    2. Scores are relative to other...

    Maybe they only think that's necessary in a dedicated action/sports DSLR? Too bad that they don't make one, except for the expensive D4S.

    A "weird" mix of features usually is the result, when a manufacturer decides to make a model that will slot into the price gap between two existing models in the line-up.
    Nikon was probably afraid...

    That's not what Barney said at all. He said that she didn't have to worry about slight underexposure, since there's virtually no noise at the chosen setting of ISO 400.

  • Comparing cameras with similar sensor size, I certainly would expect a very well-built, weather-sealed prosumer body to be more expensive than a mid-range, non-sealed body, which is what the A6000...

  • I think entry-level is mainly defined by the feature set, controls and build quality rather than just the price point.

  • In defence of DPR, marketing labels such as "entry-level", "consumer", "enthusiast" and "professional" weren't invented by them, but by the manufacturers themselves. These cameras really are...

  • The first link is to the "pre-page" where you find the link to the article. The second link is to the actual article. They have separate comments threads.

  • Commented on Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview

    One thing to keep in mind with respect to DxO's dynamic range scores, is that they report engineering DR, rather than usable DR.

    The difference between the brightest tone a camera can capture and...

  • That lens was released in 2013, hence its omission from the list.

  • The FE55 was released in 2013.

  • I find it confusing when people use "ILC" exclusively for mirrorless cameras, since an ILC can be either a DSLR or a mirrorless camera. The C in ILC has always meant "camera" to me, not "compact".

    "If you like to take good photos you might want to look elsewhere, the sensor rating is a bit underwhelming according to DxO with a rating of 70 that comes with an equally underwhelming dynamic...

    Comparing the 7D2 to those FF cameras completely ignores the main target market for a professional crop sensor body: wildlife/sports shooters who see the crop factor as an advantage rather than a...

  • Commented on Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview

    Yes, scores are relative to other cameras on the market at the time of the review, and it really couldn't be otherwise.

    Just think about what it would entail to have an absolute scoring system,...

  • Commented on Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview

    No, it isn't. The D750 is basically a consumer body with respect to build quality and control layout, and it isn't an option for those wildlife and sports shooters, who prefer a crop sensor camera...

    Also, most of those who are heavily invested in the legacy systems probably will want to continue using their lenses in the future. And many of those lenses just don't balance well with a smaller...
