"Serious Nikon fans are disappointed today. No D7200. No D300s followup. No new lenses. No radio activated flash. Not even a new Nikon 1 product." -Thom Hogan

Daedbird: How does a press release become a featured story?

Honestly, I understood making the Canon 5DS hands-on a featured story...you touched the camera.

But to make this release a feature story during CP+ week, well it speaks loudly on what drives DPR....

Nikon has so few CP+ announcements, that DPR had to write about *something*. :-)

I look forward to DPR's "First Impressions Review" of this empty camera body. :-)

On Hands-on with Canon's 'not-coming-to-USA' EOS M3 article (553 comments in total)

I guess this decision is part of the Canon SEE IMPOSSIBLE campaign.

They saw that it was impossible to get many people in the USA to buy mirrorless cameras. :-)

If you're *that* mad, write a letter to Mr. Joe Adachi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc.

People who live in the USA:

Just buy a Canon T6i, and pretend that it's a fat M3, with a viewfinder and more features. :-)

I guess Canon doesn't want to popularize the concept of mirrorless cameras in the USA. Here, most people have never heard of a mirrorless camera, and Canon wants to keep it that way.

MikeFairbanks: I currently shoot with a 6D and the included kit lens (24-105L). It's a great setuo, obviously, but previously I had the original EOS-M with 22mm lens, and I really loved that camera.

I would have kept it, but I needed every penny I could scrape up for my current outfit. I wasn't interested in rejoining the M series when the M2 was released because it wasn't a major upgrade (and was pretty much only available through ebay). But this 3 might be a winner.

I am starting to believe what I once thought was just hype: Mirrors are coming to an end soon.

The only limit is autofocus speed. Once that matches the SLR, then the days of the big box cameras are over.

Finally, there is a huge advantage of mirrorless thst is rarely discussed: shutter sound. If you shoot performance, weddings, political events, and still photography for film and TV, silence is golden. Mirrors make noise.

Not all mirrorless cameras are quiet. DPR states "Nevertheless, the Sony a7's shutter is loud, whether in electronic shutter mode or not."

Canon USA gets a Timidity Gold Award.

They are so afraid of failure, that they don't even try.

Damien Demolder: Do readers in the USA feel deprived that the EOS M3 isn't coming to America? Maybe you don't care either way, or aren't interested in CSC? Is this the camera you've been waiting for?

I'm disappointed an annoyed. It looks quite nice. Sony-USA must be celebrating.

The 40 MP multi-exposure mode would be good for landscapes, if you live in an area that never has wind. :-)

Pentax has made full frame cameras in the past. They were called (film)SLRs, and weren't particularly expensive.

On Canon EOS-1D C sees $4000 price drop in North America article (249 comments in total)

Canon says that the EOS-1D C includes "onboard 4K recording". Doesn't the Sony a7S require an external recorder to do 4K?

The results from other camera manufacturers will be even worse. As an example, Olympus' camera division has been losing money for years.

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?

In reply to:

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!"
