On The big beast: hands on with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 article (1222 comments in total)

Honest question:
What is the advantage of this camera over the Sony A6000?

On Opinion: Did Sony just do the impossible? article (1073 comments in total)

Now I know what the Canon "See Impossible" campaign was about -- they saw a Sony at the end of the tunnel :-)

On Canon EOS Rebel T6s Review preview (455 comments in total)

In Dpreview's jargon, does "silver" stand for "blah blah"? Is there anything that has a rating lower than silver?

On Sony RX100 IV compact shoots 4k, uses a stacked sensor article (310 comments in total)

Canon: take note, even the lowly fixed-lens camera by Sony is doing 4K video, and your 5Ds/R still doesn't ...

On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (3410 comments in total)
In reply to:

Howard: I bet Sony and Nikon breathed a sigh of relief.

Same DR as the 5DIII, seriously? So it's an "improvement" in quantity not quality of pixels.

I will take a more serious look at Sony's next offering.

@joejack951: there are cases (many, in fact), when bracketing is not feasible: moving clouds, moving waters, flapping flags in the scene, etc. Bracketing is a workaround, not a solution, to lack of DR.

Let's put the senor in 80D and 7D III (or 8D) please.

So why didn't they put these sensors in the 7D II ???

Amazing that they are still in business.

In reply to:

webrunner5: I would just rather stick to my 70-200 2.8 and 1.4 extender. About the same money and a lot more useful all around. Just walk a little closer. I don't regard this lens as a Birder anyways. Still too short unless on a crop camera.

Walk a little closer? "Zoom with feet", huh?

That is the most idiotic notion in photography. If one takes BIF (bird in fly), how's he supposed to zoom with feet, or "walk a little closer"? Fly with the bird?

Yawn, whatever, make some cameras please.

It's a rather lame interview, the most important question, how Canon is doing in the sensor department, has not been even brought up. The Canon execs are just giving vague and sometimes conflicting replies, yes, still is important, see, we have the latest innovation for video; mirrorless is important, DSLR is also important too.

It's all corporate double-talk with not much substance in this entire interview.

Don't buy Motorola phones, I've been burned before (Droid X). Their phones are just not good. I got the HTC One and it is night and day.

Ouch, another more-or-less-the-same camera with the same old 18MP sensor, don't we have enough of these already ?

On Canon announces EOS M2 in Japan article (616 comments in total)

Wow, an M2 that is essentially the same as the M, which did not sell very well anyhow, the question is: why bother?

On French newspaper publishes issue with no photos article (203 comments in total)

They should have published not only without the pictures, but also without the paper as well.
