darngooddesign: Resolution aside, which is better the Canon T6 or the Nikon D3300/3400?

My friend bought the 3400 from Costco and is happy.

scotthunter: I am looking for a replacement for my Canon G7X for landscape photography – does the new DL18-50 beat the recently announced G7X Mark II hands down? The one good thing about the G7X MkII from what I've seen is the customisable control ring which can now switch between smooth to click action.

Slide 4: By default, the front-most dial is for manual focus, but it have its function redefined to handle shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance and more.

crashpc: As usual, with basic JPEG processing, grass looks like ugly mush. ISO performance is okay, but I still wonder If I shouldn´t jump to FF... Decisions, Decisions!

Just get the new medium format Fuji. Not too expensive for MF; small and light as well.

Impressive stuff.

Why stop at full frame, that sensor is tiny compared to medium format.

darngooddesign: Everyone loves to criticize selfies, but when you are older you will want photos of you and your friends. I have some who passed away and I cherish the photos we took together. Thanks to face detect I am able to take selfies with my Pro 2, XF18 set to f4 or higher, but getting the framing right is kind of hit or miss.

Exactly. The anti-selfie screen sentiment just feels like an artificial reason to feel superior to people who enjoy taking photos of themselves and their friends.

gizmowiz: Sony probably realized how crappy the touchscreen was so that's why they limited it's use. What a farce by Sony to do something like that and it indicates this camera was not ready for prime time production. No thanks Sony you need to make a professional camera--not a toy. I'll stick with my old A55 camera thanks.

Sounds like you have reached a reasonable conclusion.

Tim McClanahan: Isn't only ONE of the X-T2's slots UHS-II, and the other UHS-I?

Both X-T2 slots are UHS-II.

They tell you twice before you watch the video.

There's almost no content in the written part of the video article, you have to watch the video to see the sponsored stuff and it says "Sponsored by" 1 second into the video. This gallery talks about technique and the only Sony-specific comments was one slide where they said that they used a 6300 and another slide where they said in low light phase detect fails and switches to contrast. Hardly a biased promotion for Sony's camera.

Its not their fault that you are so impatient to watch a video that you don't read what is in bright green right below it on the original article.

The video on this article even says it is sponsored by Sony 1 second into the video. If you are not happy with bright green text below the video not he original post and are not happy with the video actually saying it is sponsored by Sony, I'm not sure you would be happy with anything DPR would do.

Or you could just ignore all Sony posts since you are convinced there is a backroom deal.

tom1234567: Amazing you got all those photos was there a Radiator in your Sony
just amazing that the camera never went into Overheat mode

I don't know why DPR keeps trying to push these cameras

I wonder if they would ever put the same time and effort into a Fuji X-T2 which is just a far superior camera, but maybe they don't make monies of Fuji

Tom

People love to complain so I doubt that will solve it.

The "sponsored by" line of text is bright green, hardly the best way to trick your readers. LOL

Barney, you guys should put "Sponsored by" in 72pt type, 12 times in the title. Maybe consider using it as a tiled background graphic.

SmilerGrogan: Finally, a topic on which I'm actually qualified to comment...
A couple of other tips:
• If the animal seems intimidated by your camera, lay it down near the animal so it can sniff, lick, and paw your camera. This will often calm the animal down.
• With cats, a two-stage process can get you better results. If the cat isn't cooperating or seems fearful, take a time out and shoot another animal or two before returning to the cat. Sometimes cats just need extra time to get used to a new human.

"• If the animal seems intimidated by your camera, lay it down near the animal so it can sniff, lick, and paw your camera. This will often calm the animal down."

You should probably leave your lens cap on. :D

Tom, do you mean like the Fuji-sponsored wedding photography video they just posted?

In reply to:

Everythingis1: I sincerely wish that one of these companies would perfect the curved sensor and associated lens design then release a pocketable APSC fixed zoom lens camera.

@Engine. Despite the OP asking for a digital APSC camera, you are more than welcome to carry around a film camera from he 90s.

An APSC zoom of any optical quality is not going to be pocketable.

In reply to:

knows_nothing: WHERE IS THE FLASH SHOE?

More realistically, the intended user is fine with the built-in flash so there was no reason to include the hotshoe . The chances of the user buying an external flash probably low. More advanced users would buy the X-A3 or move up to the X-E2S or X-T10.
