Stupid dedicated Dell advert to draw traffic to the site. To make sure it's reaching more dummies it's made as a video, so reading comprehension is not required.
They could have written an article on how bad the dongle hell is Apple is forcing it's user base into it, and I would have fully subscribed.

Sangster: This is why Nikon stated they need to focus on high-margin products. They need to leave plenty of room to pay for all the subsequent recalls.

@mandm I guess you are in denial of all the other copy paste posts you did here...
All others: just search for all mandm posts in this thread to know what I'm talking about

@mandm how many more times will you paste the same pathetic response?
Bashing Canon will not solve any Nikon QA issues!

Very nice gallery! Shows well what you can do with one single focal length.

Excellent images! Looks like a great lens. I already like the EF-M 35 Macro a lot, but this one looks even better.

I really enjoyed that article, though I'm a bit disappointed with the missing happy end!
Did you buy a new camera now? Or did you switch your entire system?
You made me very curious what you are going to end up doing.

The Name is Bond: Unless you have cashflow problems, rapid depreciation for many systems means there's no point not buying the latest and greatest, and selling off yesterday's model. You'll still end up spending the same amount of money, but miss out on a)the latest and greatest b)warranty.

People buy for logical reasons but based on emotions.
If you want that new gear you will find a calculation that works for you.
Can you please show me that formula where buying the latest stuff is actually saving you money? Let's take the Canon 5D (II, III, IV) line for that.

btw.: I found a perfect reason why I could not live without that 2nd time zone of my GMT Master, because I was traveling between the time zones ;-)

How does uploading an image to a web service proof ownership? It just shows that you uploaded it first, but provides no evidence that you created it.

there are few monetisation options, mostly not very pleasant for early adopters.

If you don't pay for it, you are the product ;-)

While the EVF may have it's advantages in edge cases, I prefer OVF or articulating LCD for my shooting.

It's rich guy jewelry, like a Rolex only with a much shorter half life.

No reason to offend Rolex! ;-)

Very impressed by what this lens can deliver with this update! In this class pretty hard to top. While the M lens selection is still pretty limited, they keep delivering for their target market!

Looks pretty noisy for ISO 800 and a modern APSC sensor.
Did someone play with the shadows a bit too much? I would have rather fixed the right ear in post 😬
Very much like though what this lens delivers.

Very impressive work, and nice job sharing the details.
Now let's hope you can appreciate the jealousy in the comments as what they are: Confirmation of your excellent execution.

Fingerprint sensor plus supported memory card that allows on the fly encryption without a penalty.
I also love the idea to make cameras unusable for thiefs. Let's also lock expensive lenses to specific bodies with the same credentials.

On article Hands-on and in-depth with the Sony a6500 (556 comments in total)
In reply to:

nametaken: This seems like a wonderful camera, but I wonder why they continue with this form factor. I mean I like it for my a6000 - having a capable camera that's portable enough to take more places than a DSLR is nice - but I feel like the type of people who would use all of these new features are the type that would also appreciate a larger battery, more buttons, more memory card slots, and other advantages a big body can offer. So why not include this in an a3000-like body (and using some of that extra space for a bigger battery)?

There's plenty of small bodies in this lineup now, so why not another big one like the a3000 (only more serious)? I feel like the true advantage to mirrorless isn't just that it can be smaller than DSLRs, but that you have the OPTION to stay small OR go big as needed while staying within the same system.

"This seems like a wonderful camera, but I wonder why they continue with this form factor"
I so much wish Canon would have done the same with their M5. Sony has a very successful recipe, and luckily understands to _not_ change the key ingredients, such as form factor.
I'm actually less excited how conservative their innovation approach is in this case. They could have done a bit more on the touch screen, and try to improve the sensor quality... Stuck to the same basic sensor IQ over 3 generations sounds very Canon to me ;-)

Link | Posted on Oct 7, 2016 at 09:08 UTC

If it delivers in the IQ department similar to the 22mm and the 11-22, this is a no brainer. Guess this will replace either the 22mm or the 18-55 in my M2 bag ...

In reply to:

Murat Sahan: Is there anyone here that actually buys and uses cameras like these? Im just curious, so many comments by so many but no one that is actually in the target area?

You do see a few guys on the forums that use their stuff for real work. Only very few of them are outspoken. Guess they are more focused on their work.
Personally I think most here are enthusiast gear heads...

Link | Posted on Apr 10, 2016 at 09:08 UTC

Can't wait to see the first cat shot with the 100mp version here on the forum. Or the question "which lens should I use for portrait..."

TyphoonTW: Do people really take pictures at ISO100 than add 4/5/6 stops of exposure compensation in post?

Well, if I could, I would ;-)
Why don't people appreciate the ability to do something, instead of bashing it?
"We will never need more than 640kb of RAM"... right ...
