In reply to:

ImagesInstyle: it wont sell outside because america's always complaining about something.
no matter what camera is made, there will be a group of trolls *itching about this and that.
Japanese people dont *itch like americans, and i dont blame them for keeping it only in japan.

You both have good points...

In reply to:

happypoppeye: Well, the one major item wrong with the M1 was the autofocus so lets hope Canon got that right this time. Not sure what they (as well as Nikon) are thinking but good job not cannibalizing your low end SLR sales and at least keeping the money from that cannibalization ...let the other companies get the money and cannabilize them instead.

...I'm not that interested in sales numbers and thats why I don't google the facts. Way to try and demean the original post to make your point.

...and there is one thing that makes all of these bad for social photography or at least the type shown in the main photo above. ...people drinking, spilling drinks, and dropping things. The best social camera I've used is the panny ts20 ...waterproof, cheap, who cares, have fun.

In reply to:

rube39: What about the Canon EOS M? It is small, easy to use, has two excellent kit lenses, a nice touch screen interface, a large sensor, and after the latest firmware update, it delivers decent enough AF speed.

The EOS-M has horrible AF even with the update and I wouldn't recommend it for any beginner.

Bjrn SWE: Cameras with viewfinders should be rated higher.

Cars with carburators should be ranked higher.

In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: I understand the significance of a camera being small and light enough to be with you vs. left at home but beyond that, come on. Will DPR be testing shirt pockets, vest pockets, tight jeans? How about the top 10 cameras for sitting on?

Thats a great comment because it clearly shows you don't understand the significance of a camera being small.

Ehh really ...I've been waiting for that.

On Retro Nikon 'DF' emerges from the shadows article (1396 comments in total)

If it was pure photography they would announce the product and than sell it. This is pure marketing BS.

LensBeginner: Call me Mr. Grumpy, but I mainly see many oversaturated, overexposed and overprocessed photos...
I like some, though, like Nos. 4-5-6-10.
Not much else.

Thats because your not interested in the photo itself, your interested in the the technical aspects ofthe photo.

tkbslc: You guys know this is really f4.9 on Medium format, right?

A 1.7 m43 lens lets just as much light in as a Medium Format 1.7 lens. Thus the industry standard where this is rated at 1.7.

Nah ...sh#t runs downhill ...and the Panasonic lawyers have a much bigger bank roll than the Fuji interns

On Preview:canon-eos-70d (1311 comments in total)
In reply to:

ProfHankD: I really don't much care about PDAF. In fact, I usually prefer manual focus with peaking. However, I'm impressed to see that Canon's dual pixel structure doesn't seem to have sacrificed IQ for PDAF. According to both DxOMark and the DPReview sample images, this sensor is a significant improvement over the sensor in, for example, the 100D or 700D. It still has a half stop less dynamic range, but it's the first 1.6X crop sensor Canon has made that doesn't get trashed by the 1.5X crop one in the Sony NEX-5.

DPReview says the 70D competes with Canon's FF -- I cannot agree. The Sony NEX-7 outperforms the 6D at low ISO and looses to it at high ISO, but 6D IQ is always better than the 70D in color depth, dynamic range, and low light. Still, the 70D proves that Canon's dual pixels are a viable approach, competitive in APS-C IQ while incorporating a useful new capability. Now if only Canon would give us direct access to the 40M half-pixels.... ;-)

Yes ...and thats why he put the smiley face ...thats the "I'm misinformed" symbol now I guess.

In reply to:

happypoppeye: Looks great ...and everyone can praise or belittle it all they want ...but my first thought is, now you have an $800 or $1000 camera with very "unsecure" sealing (from what it looks like). The claim of Nikonos-like with what looks like the bad sealing of the compacts available.

Read the article and my posts again ...woooooo ...thats them going right over your head.

I didn't say DPR or the article said it was Nikonos-like. Your arguing a statement that you don't even understand.

Exactly what I'm talking about, thank you for proving my point. Its the only mirrorless waterproof that shoots RAW, so preorder it and hope it doesn't leak ...but even if it does leak, that doesn't matter because it shoots RAW? Awesome.

Joe Mayer: The iphone (note it's not called the icamera) is not of consequence to photographers. Photographers have cameras and not phones.

Unless your one of those non-photographer National Geographic photographers using a phone.
