Douglas F Watt: If a company is OK with passing customer info to the Chinese intelligence services, a buffing-up of misleading advertising seems like not much of an ethical stretch.

Douglas apologies - my comment was aimed at Mike FL. Forgot to work around the 2005 DPR reply system.
PS I sure did not!

Mike FL: China is getting worse under current communist leaders Xi in terms of cheat, fake, steal...

At least, Huawei, as one of million Chinese cheaters, does not kill people. but other Chinese do by just looking very recent on going cases. Just name a few in the HEALTH CAR sector:

"Europe recalls generic heart drug made in China on cancer fears"

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-pharmaceuticals-europe-heart/europe-recalls-generic-heart-drug-made-in-china-on-cancer-fears-idUSKBN1JV2D8?feedType=RSS&feedName=healthNews

"Chinese blood pressure pills sold in US recalled over cancer-linked ingredient"
https://www.scmp.com/news/china/society/article/2155699/chinese-blood-pressure-pills-sold-us-recalled-over-cancer-linked

"Hundreds of thousands of fake vaccinations given to Chinese children":

https://www.axios.com/china-faulty-rabies-diphtheria-tetanus-vaccine-doses-40ee21dd-8a49-4352-bba5-13472e463ff0.html

These few ONGOING HEALTH CARE cases which people could get KILLed.

Here he goes. No. 1 Troll on DPR.

On article All about that lens: Sony Cyber-shot RX10 III review (481 comments in total)

I know let's advertise the ending of the latest Game Of Thrones episode before the show even starts. What a great idea! Viewer numbers will go through the roof! NOT.

Still completely dumbfounded that someone at DPR thinks it's a good idea publishing the final review scores on the HOME page. How are the worms looking down in that hole?

In this test we look to see how tolerant of pushing exposure the EOS-1D X II's Raw files are. "

In reply to:

marike6: Some shops still have the Coolpix A for $369, a pretty fantastic deal. And since it uses the proven D7000 sensor, IQ is banging. Not a pretty as the X70, but half the price and no IQ / RAW converter issues and they make a dedicated VF for it, unlike the X70. My Ricoh GR III is easily my favorite compact of all time for shooting (on the Greek Islands it performed like a champ). A good 28mm lens that focuses close is a revelation that will improve your photography immeasurably. The Ricoh GR I sells for $550 new on Ebay. It could be that other RAW converters like Dcraw will produce better RAW conversion for the X70, but as a Lightroom users I don't want to change. So I might have to grab one of the last few Coolpix A's or the Ricoh GR I. Thanks guys.

@photo perzon stop spamming your misguided rubbish everywhere.

chillgreg: I'll say it again (and again).

Whoever has decided to put the review scores on the DPR home page has rocks in their head. IT IS COSTING YOU MONEY.

I see the score, think well thanks for that, and skip straight to the conclusion page.

Doh... :s

@mosc seriously...

Richard Franiec: Nice to see that finally Canon pay attention to ergonomic aspects like the grip.
Since 2006 (G7,G9,S90,S95,S100,S120,G7x) I was trying to fill the void with my grips to the delight of countless Canon compacts users. Now I can rest my case LOL. For now, at least.
Cheers,

Get a grip Mike :p
