I've been searching for answers to no avail. Does the CM1 has a lens cap? Or needs one?

This is a well calculated shot.

OT: who has 1000m lens again?

Even though I'm not going to buy it. The price seems reasonable for a durable bag to me. I mean, do you know how much an LV bag costs?

All pros and no cons. I am feeling more and more that these videos are all paid advertisements. Tell me this isn't so!

A lot of good information (and no flirting this time!).

Just a bit too commercial and feels like a 16-min ad.

On a diff note: I like how the photographer say the A6000 is "light, compact" while holding that FE 70-200mm lens (11:38 mark)

Why does the lens says ULTRASONIC?

Can be used with focal reducer?

Sony's SELP1650 (16-50mm for APS-C) is just 29mm collapsed.

Panasonic's Vario PZ 14-42mm is 27mm collapsed.

They don't count because they have no mirror, hence not DSLR?

And the K-mount has a FFD of 45.46mm, more than twice that of E-mount and M43.

Basically, this is a wireless thermal color printer in the form factor of a picture frame. Not bad for $180.

RyanBoston: If a camera doesn't have a #selfie button it's not wanted anymore. Yes it's a ridiculous world we live in now, but just imagine what comes out next.

You must have just stepped out of a time machine because I don't even know A7000 is released.

If he won, movie studios will be bankrupted because every movie has plots inspired by other movies.

tkbslc: I'm pretty blown away at how good the fake DOF portrait shown in this review turned out. Fantastic.

It is quite surprising to see what Nexus can do with a single camera is so much better than what HTC with 2.

In reply to:

Jim Evidon: I usually avoid phone reviews on what used to be a digital camera site, but I decided to take a look at the review.

What I find is that digital phones are now where digital cameras were 10 years ago. As far as I can see, the only use for digital cameras in hand held phones is (1) use it if you need to catch the freeway accident you pass when your real camera isn't handy; i.e, it's probably better than nothing...a debatable point point. And/or (2) it's good for those people that really could care less about photography and like to engage in narcissistic exercises like taking selfies. Blech!

I share the same opinion as Jim, 10 years ago.

1.3 MP isn't much but it is better than nothing.

"DPReview was one of the organizations that provided Samsung with feedback ..."

How about providing some feedback to Sony too?

The list look fine to me. But A7 II rated best? How many readers actually touched the camera? Let alone trying or owning?

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7 flips for selfies article (387 comments in total)
In reply to:

Beat Traveller: Specs aside, it looks absolutely ridiculous when the LCD is flipped up. Like someone taped a TV to a Nikon FM2.

I actually like the style. Reminds me camcorders with flip LCD as well as Canon's older G-series. Only that their screens flip to the side. It is actually a very practical design as often times the bottom of the LCD, which shows the setting, is blocked by the camera / lens.

Boxbrownie: Its not a camera ranking though is it........its a photo downloaded ranking, so its not surprising Apple is so popular with all the i-phones and i-pads being used by consumers (not enthusiasts) for taking piccies......bit of a dumb table really.

"uploaded"
