I like photos with flair. Oh, this is flare - never mind. :-)

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7 flips for selfies article (353 comments in total)

Hmmm. The camera is for the "young selfie crowd", but is designed to look like an old-fashioned rangefinder camera.

It's good for selfies, but is it also good for otheries?

elkhidir: Both Sony a5100 and Olympus E-PL7 are selling (quite well it seems) for that price. Both have "selfie" screens and lack viewfinders. If there's a market for it, there's nothing wrong with Panasonic getting in. For us consumers it will add to competition and push prices down.

@Marty4650: On the other hand, perhaps people who have never used an EVF/OVF would appreciate their benefits. "Wow, I can see the subject even when it's sunny outside!"

On Real-world samples: Sony Alpha 7 II in Kauai article (209 comments in total)

Some people don't want real-world samples. They prefer unrealistic best-case samples.

Hmmm. So the camera's Power system is Shot.

In reply to:

claudio pasciuti: I'm a D3200/D5300 user and All I can say is that they're excellent cameras fo the price.my only doubt is:why to chase Canon in this stupid fight to touchscreens war?On the field you can use tilting screen and direct access controls,but the only thing about touchscreen is a lot of dirty fingerprints on the screen.You can use the touchscreen of your Android/IOS device to control some featues and that's all.
Put in depth of focus button and AF micro adjust controls,instead!Who cares about Canon little gimmjicks?

From DPR's review of the Canon T5i/700D:

"Integrating touchscreen control is one thing. Designing an interface which is both easy and efficient to use is quite another. We're happy to report that Canon has done an outstanding job of combining form and function, with a clean, intuitive interface that in many instances lets you accomplish tasks faster than using external controls. And rest assured, that if touchscreen operation holds no appeal for you, you can simply ignore it and use the physical buttons as you always have."

It's fine for selfies, but I don't think its very good for otheries. :-)

"market reports are predicting"

In other words, "according to anonymous sources".

And any report that reached a different conclusion won't be mentioned.

Most people who buy interchangeable lens cameras never go beyond the kit lens. In the long run, I suspect that large-sensor-compacts will push MILC into an even smaller niche.

The USA is where MILCs come to die, and be dumped at deep discounts.

Whatever. Samsung is just another miniscule-market-share player scrambling for leftovers in a shrinking market.

On Canon to move camera production back to Japan article (107 comments in total)

A year ago, Reuters also reported:

"Canon is also continuing its push to automate much of its production and replace humans with robots."

So labor costs are no longer an issue.

Canon made a similar announcement a year ago.

Send your Nikon D750 to me, and I will inspect it. The inspection might take a few years. :-)

On Canon announces five PowerShot compacts article (150 comments in total)
In reply to:

Rachotilko: The death of this market segment is several years overdue.

Frankly, does anybody buy these things anymore ?

Sales are down, but Canon forecast that they would sell 9.5 million compact cameras in 2014.

In reply to:

jkokich: $900 for an entry level body?

On the Nikon USA web site, they list the D5500 under "Entry-Level DSLRs"

On the other hand, you have to be pretty "enthusiastic" to pay $1,000 (with kit lens) for a camera. :-)

The biggest benefit of new camera models is that they drive down the price of last year's model. :-)
