On article Nikon D5600 review: making connectivity a snap? (342 comments in total)

I think it's incredible that such cameras still have a market. I guess it's due to the fact that most potential buyers totally ignore everything that's not Canon/Nikon.

On photo Water drop in the water drop challenge (24 comments in total)

it's so perfect, that it looks like a computer rendering. Bravo!

So if I understood correctly, you took the picture with the light of the flash, istead of the shutter. But how could you have the flashes to fire exactly at the right moment? Thanks.

On article Canon debuts EOS M6 mirrorless with optional EVF (657 comments in total)

Nice camera, for ppl unaware of the many better/cheaper alternatives in the mirrorless field (some of which have been around for years).

Yet, all the same, a nice camera. In few years from now, canon could become competitive.

Wilight: Canon 5D mark IV: a modest upgrade from 5D III, 30mp (smaller files) at 7fps / 4k ridiculously cropped (with no option of speedbooster), 720p at 120fps - U$ 3.500,00
Users feedback: An excelent and consistent camera, but not all that I was expecting after 4 years. It's ok and I am happy with it.
Dpreview score - 87% Gold Award

Sony A99 II: an insane upgrade from A99, 42mp (huge files) at 12fps, both FF and S35 4k, 1080p at 120fps.. countless features - U$ 3.200,00
Users feedback: Wow, wow, wow! I can't believe I have it all for the price I paid. Best camera ever!
Dpreview score - 85% Silver Award.

Revenant: it's the 'weighted' part that is funny ;-)

As always, the final score does not reflect the whole spectrum of features, but just some very specific ones. In this case, I think it's AF.

Another example is NX1 vs D500. The former is a better overall camera than the latter, with a better, more advanced, 40% more MP sensor, better video, comparable DR and low light photography, faster fps. It was out 2 years before. Yet...it scored lower here on DPR.

When I look the images that this lens produces on APSC cameras, I cannot but prefer those coming from the combo of Samsung NX1+85mm/1.4.

That's up to personal preferences, of course, but IMO the quality of bokeh and microcontrast of that Samsung lens on the 28mp BSI sensor is unparalled.

On article Close-up: Hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5 (127 comments in total)
In reply to:

Miki Nemeth: At last now Panasonic learned from Sony that the way to go is down-sampling vs cropping the sensor, especially when the goal is to get better low-light performance. I am still convinced that the 24M Sony APS-C sensor down-sampled would be better if Sony implemented 10 bit and 4.2.2, but honestly that is the territory for FS7. In that context the GH5 with its better codec may be as clean as the A6500. Fuji is another player but it requires a $2000 external recorder for ultimate quality. On the other hand we have the A7Sii that actually took over the professional market. GH5 should have been made with the same sensor as the A6500, and with the GH4 codecs and tools, that would have been the killer. With the FZ2000 I am now both a Sony and Panasonic fan, I'll pick the best when time arrives. With these cameras X-T2, A6500, GH5, I hope the prices of the original A7S are falling, and I might grab one: I'd need a low-light king.

Actually Samsung NX1 downsamples from 6.5k, 28MP apsc and it did that way before sony.

LMBC: I remember a camera that i more than 2 years old from an manufacture that doesn't exist anymore that was almost as good as this one... Sorry, let me rephrase... that beated this camera in all features....

Canon I still have your lens but I need a better camera to replace my old NX1... in a few years...

No doubt that NX1 is much better than M5 and still even better than X-T2 and A6500, at least for many important aspects.

BUT...even if I love NX1 and my NX lenses, I wouldn't advise buying one now from scratch, if someone has to start a system.

M5 or X-T2 are the best alternatives in the APS-C camp, while GH5 and EM1-ii are the best for m43 if you can live with the smaller sensor.

tecnoworld: considering that a 4k 65" oled LG tv costs less than 3000€ right now, it would be hard to spend anything more than this for a "small", LCD monitor, even at 8k resolution.

Ok so false advertising. It's also in the supplied manual btw ;-)

There is a 10-bit Ultra HD 4K panel (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) that includes a Wider Colour Gamut (WCG) and support for High Dynamic Range (HDR). In the case of LG's OLED TVs they not only support HDR 10 but also Dolby Vision and they are certified as Ultra Premium by the UHD Alliance. For an OLED TV to achieve Ultra HD Premium certification it not only has to be able to accept a 10-bit signal and have a native colour gamut of over 90% of DCI-P3, but it also has to be able to deliver a dynamic range that goes from 0.0005 to 540nits

Actually all the sources I find say it's 10bit. Are they ALL wrong? Would be odd...

In reply to:

tecnoworld: Interesting concept. Many sensors vs big single sensor will be similar to multi core at lower clock vs single core at higher clock. One day we'll have small devices making decent pictures. But not now.

No, if you put many different lenses in front of the sensors and process the inputs with a powerful engine. Also the individual sensors could be used for different purposes, like huawei does with the b&w one.

H.264 and such high bitrates in 2017. Hmmm. The world should have gone h.265 for high end 4k recording.
