TN Args: Turn on Rec view. Continue photography. Install next update when released.

Next problem.

Did you read the updated statement? That's why.

In reply to:

PRohmer: My hopes are shattered :) Quite underwhelming. Not only Canon is a few steps behind in terms of features, but doesn't seem to deliver in basic IQ in cropped sensor segment. Other then color it appears to be way behind Fuji X series, Sony and Pentax. 80d isn't the best IQ body in the CS segment but has better lenses to choose from. I was hoping to jump off the M4/3 wagon while staying with mirrorless. I was really hoping for M5 to be it because I prefer Canon color to Sony and Fuji.

Buy it, use it, like it more than you thought, like the lenses more than you thought, take photos!

Dave Oddie: We've "reached out" to Olympus for comment.

Ugh! How about some plain English? We have asked Olympus for comment. Or: We have asked Olympus to comment.

But maybe DPR staff are literally standing there in their office, arms outstretched in the direction of Olympus HQ in Japan.

I mean, what more can you do?

"The gun is compatible with Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Micro Four Thirds, Pentax and Sony multi-interface cameras and offers TTL metering with each. "

Do I have to buy a separate gun for each camera brand?

And, what does 'multi-interface camera' mean?

On article Action-packed: Sony a6500 First Impressions (545 comments in total)

So, does the 6300 have identical action-CAF ability?

This model just adds touchscreen (with caveats) and IS (with caveats)?

In reply to:

SimonSander: No EVF, no articulating screen, and way too slow lens. I have tried the control via lens ring and zoom toggle - it's pretty awkward to use, feels like finger gymnastics to me.

So except for the size, it's not a camera I would consider buying.

It was clearly stated that size is the reason for buying it. So if you had to buy at that size (not RX100 size) what would you pick? The fact that you (or I, or 5 million others) don't want to buy a camera that size is too uninteresting and not worth raising.

Why did you pick the LX10 over the LX100? Genuine question.

barrym1966: aww cute, now the hipster mirrorless people have something to play with :)

@Neez "Do you still drag your wife around by the hair and take pictures of her with your dinosaur camera?" - very well said, but seriously, isn't a dinosaur camera the perfect match for a troll? He can put it in his 60-litre, roller-wheeled, aluminium camera case and, using his huge troll-under-a-bridge muscles, throw the whole thing in the back of his F150.

Darth Vader. Because he would probably laser my head off and *then* take the photo. And I would rather be dead than have my portrait taken. Besides, my expression would probably be pretty cool.

Couple of sensible choices this time, well done. And thanks for inadvertently backing up my criticism, of your choice of the Sony in the under $900 category, by mentioning above, "Nikon has a lot more optics options than Sony's E mount". Agreed.

In reply to:

TN Args: Nice - recommending readers into a dead-end lens system. Show some responsibility instead of sensor-worship.

Most of those people would also be more than happy (dare I say happier) with a good 1" bridge camera. "I thought that'll be rather obvious", LOL.

But for those (few?) wishing to enter a flexible camera system and start with a mid price body, pointing them to Sony APSC series is a trifle irresponsible IMHO. The review team could have done better. Instead they chose to 'worship the sensor' -- again.

JT26: Well done DPR... this is one of the best (albeit short) galleries I've seen on here. Really like the images. Unsure on the camera specs though - seems lacking somewhat compared to the competition

The camera has three specifications, in order of decreasing importance to the target market:

1. Specify the name

2. Specify the other stuff

3. Specify the price

Close the sale!
