  • Excellent! I like Samyang E-mount lenses. I just wished they made AF lenses. And now they do!

  • My policy is to NEVER check my gear into the cargo hold. Way too much risk. All my gear goes on board as carry-on. I used to travel with DSLR gear, but now I use mirrorless gear, which allows me ...
  • If you believe that, then you don't know history. Jumping from FD mount to a fully electronic EF mount-- daring innovation. Canon's USM-- innovation. Their IS lenses-- innovation. Canon's QCD ...
  • Yes, it's pertinent information, especially when you consider that the A6300 is several hundred dollars more than the Rebel T5. A Rebel T5 kit sells for $399. An A6300 body only sells for $998. ...
  • You like to say that, but I'm a long-time Canon user. The problem is that cameras such as the 80D don't sell nearly as well as they used to.  For example, on Amazon it's being outsold by the Sony ...
  • Please stop comparing Amazon to your local supermarket. Amazon is one of the biggest sellers of cameras in the US, if not the world. Think Kodak, Nokia, or Microsoft in mobile. You wait too long, ...
  • From Walter Isaacson's book on former Apple CEO Steve Jobs, It's one of the fatal mistakes that Kodak made.  They were afraid that digital would cannibalize their film sales. This is a sentiment ...
  • Amazon is one of the biggest sellers of cameras in the US. There profits were down 21% in 2015. canon-profits-down-21-as-mirrorless-cameras-cut-into-dslr-sales/ In 2015, Sony was definitely making ...
  • Actually, you're missing the trend. It used to be that Canon's and Nikon's other models sold very well, too. But now, sales are mainly in their low-end, lower-margin, older models. For example, ...
  • I suspect that Canon is going to ride the DSLR market to the end. They are too comfortable there. Meanwhile, other mirrorless systems will continue to mature, grow, and expand their usership. At ...
  • (1) Futuresource Consulting: "The DSLR market has performed slightly better than we had anticipated and this is due to aggressive pricing promotions from both Canon and Nikon, particularly for ...
  • I'd say selling a camera system is quite different from selling a car. People who buy into a camera system generally stay because they've invested in lenses, batteries, bodies, etc. Just look at ...
  • I wouldn't be so confident that big bodies are more popular. I think smaller bodies are increasingly popular. I am a Canon user who now also uses Sony's mirrorless system. I now much prefer more ...
  • I hate to say it, but there are countless photographers who have, and are, getting sharp quality results from your exact set-up. I think this is more an issue of your skill and technique, not an ...
  • I'd say "committed" in the same way Americans are "committed" to filing their taxes every year.  It's something they have to do, but it's not exactly a passion or something they are enthusiastic ...
  • Yep, I had an NX30 that had a built-in tilt EVF.  Worked great.  DSLR style, smooth integration, tilt EVF, still allowed the use of the hotshoe.  Would have loved to have seen an NX40 or NX50. The ...
  • Because add-on EVFs make the cameras a lot taller.  Canon's EVF-DC1 is quite tall, and sticks out quite a bit from the camera body.  In addition to that, it doesn't allow you to use a hotshoe ...
  • Time to get with the times. Today, we have more tools at our disposal. One tool is the tilt/swivel display. It's really rather pointless to bring up film photographers from decades past who did ...
  • At the moment, the A6300 is the 5th best selling interchangeable lens camera at Amazon. The only ILC's selling better than it are the Rebel T5 (#1, #3, #4, in various kit packages) and the Nikon...

  • Replied in LCD Durability
    Yeah, it's not as if people have their screens folded out all the time.  You flip it out when you need it, then close it up when it's not needed.  And the chances of something cataclysmic ...
