Great ease of use. :-)

On Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview (446 comments in total)

"heavy-handed noise reduction limiting [jpeg] detail" seems to be a common complaint about Sony cameras.

For Nikon, Sony makes customized sensors with preinstalled oil spots. :-)

On Olympus Stylus Tough TG-4 to offer Raw capture article (146 comments in total)

Toughcams are great for taking candid photos at the beach. That way, when you get beat up, your camera won't break. :-)

Small-sensor superzooms sell, because they can do something that cellphones can't, in a small package.

intruder61: More soccer mum cameras, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Soccer mums/moms get all the attention. Nobody cares about lacrosse dads. :-)

"Olympus has announced the Stylus 1s in the US, a camera it had previously announced in Japan last year." -DPR

Leftovers again. :-)

$700 for a 1/1.7 sensor sounds like a tough sell.

300mm-equivalent is short compared to other zooms. The upside is that it may have better optics than more extreme super zooms.

On Hands-on with Canon's 'not-coming-to-USA' EOS M3 article (548 comments in total)
In reply to:

justmeMN: The USA is where mirrorless cameras come to die, and be dumped at deep discounts. :-)

@gLOWx: The claim that, in the USA, people buy DSLRs because they are a status symbol is just over-the-top stupid. Here, no camera is a status symbol, with the possible exception of the iPhone.

On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1163 comments in total)

Samsung understands that DSLRs have "excellent ergonomics". That's why they copied them.

BTW, at least according to one source, the previous DJI Phantom 2 is what crashed on the White House lawn.

On Opinion: Why the Canon XC10 is a big deal article (813 comments in total)

"If we buy into the idea that photography is about the 'Decisive Moment', what are the implications when we gain the ability to capture all the moments in the scene?"

Seriously cool, for lack of a better phrase.

To steal a historic quote, DPR sure has a lot of "nattering nabobs of negativism."

On Lensbaby introduces Velvet 56mm f/1.6 article (166 comments in total)

A little Vaseline on an inexpensive UV filter is cheaper.

That said, if you have a spare $500/$600 laying around, I give you permission to buy this lens. :-)

On Nikon 1 J5: What you need to know article (493 comments in total)

Apparently, the J4 had a launch price of $650. With a launch price of $499, the J5 should be more competitive - the same suggested retail price as a Canon G 16.

On Nikon D5500 Review preview (322 comments in total)

"The Nikon D5500 is as close to a 'pocketable' DSLR as you'll find. While it's a bit larger than the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 (100D), you can slip the D5500 into a small bag if you're using a compact lens." -DPR

Neither a D5500/SL1 nor a mirrorless camera will fit in my jeans pocket, so they are equally convenient/inconvenient. In both cases, you are using a small camera bag.
