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. :-)

$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.

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 (1224 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."

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 (359 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.

Did this camera get the Sterling Silver Award, or only the lowly Silver Plated Award? :-)

Am I the only one who thinks that the kit lens looks strange? I thought that the front of a lens was supposed to be round glass, and mostly glass, not mostly metal.

In reply to:

Horshack: It's the 90's financial boom all over again, where companies make more money on their investments than they do in their actual business units. Money for nothing and chicks for free :)

It sounds like the profits of Japanese companies are being propped up by a weak yen. I wonder how many more years that can last.

Durability is an important factor in deciding what selfie-stick to buy. In an art gallery, if you bounce your selfie-stick off of a painting or sculpture, you don't want the stick to break.
