M W B G: I understand that people do shoot video, but what do you do with all this 1080p or 4k video? You watch it once, then store it on a drive with all your photos and never look at it again. I try to print as much as I can but what do you do with the video?

My kids love watching our Home videos. Different strokes for different folks.

King Penguin: Yawn......what I like about FF cameras is that coming from a crop sensor all my prime lenses are wider and I can use them in much lower light conditions.......at ISO 6,400, even ISO 12,800, one can still achieve great images.....

That's why I could never go back to APSC or M43 sensors......

Let’s see some of those ISO 12800 beauties!

Hinder: I bought a Hero 5 last week and returned it two days later. All it did was seize, wheeze, freeze and sneeze., oh and hiccup too. Sooooo many things wrong with it! I think that's why they made it so you don't have to use a waterproof housing, because you have to pull the battery out so often to reset everything. Everytime I tried something it would freeze! I find it really difficult to believe people actually rely on these. After using that thing I also believe that they should be selling them for around $39. I have a polaroid cube and it was only $79 and has never failed.

Your experience sounds like an anomaly based on just about every other review that has been published.

Wubslin: I've been assured by the mirrorless / bridgecam fan cubs on here that the SLR has no future.

Yet Nikon and Canon are still - stubbornly - making new ones. How dare these giant corporations not do as they're told?

I love shiny and new!

ojos azules: DPAF only working in Mirrorless mode, of course.

So what the point of this mirror charade?

Mirror mirror on the wall what's the best camera type today?
Mirrorless!!

Would love to see an example of yours that would have been missed with an EVF

In reply to:

the Mtn Man: Why?

If there is true potential for a resurgence, Canon will sell a new film body. Until then it is a fad.

Nikoncanonfan: I've got a 1dx and struggle to imagine anything better save a few more pixels. Very happy with the brand

At $5k+ for a camera body, you should be happy.

In reply to:

Stephen McDonald: No 4K video at 60p nor 5K or 6K capabilities. No increase in lens reach, although I didn't expect it. The least Sony could do is include mounting threads for a lens adapter tube, for telextenders. It does have a touchscreen, a non-professional gimmick I would not use or want. I mount a diopter viewing loupe on my viewscreens, so this is not a plus. At its increased price, it will be even easier to pass up than last year's model.

You would love one, just say it ;-)

Aroart: Also beware of B&H .. I bought a Fuji 18-135 used for $200 less and know after 5 months the zoom mech does not work and I have to do the old school push and pull with it...

So they knew it would fail after 5 months? Lol

Tom Holly: Want full frame? Upgrade! Otherwise, don't.

What is wrong with WANTING full frame?

DavidKennard: "The 6D II's larger sensor also means you get better performance in low light. If you regularly shoot above about ISO 1600, the 6D II will give you an immediate improvement in image quality, simply because it gets more light."

This is correct only when not equalising DoF between the two cameras. The 6D II requires stopping down by a stop to get the same DoF as the 80D, in which case both cameras would receive exactly the same amount of light. Of course, in situations where you want or don't mind shallow DoF then the statement does hold true.

You are conflating equal exposure with DoF equivelancy.

The biggest differentiator is gaming. Macs just don't cut it. Oh, and those ugly gaming rigs run photo editing software super smoothly without breaking a sweat. Function over form.

louisjaffe: I agree with some of the criticisms of Apple, but here are two reasons I stick with Mac.

I'm surprised more people haven't mentioned the security and stability of MacOS versus Windows. No computer is immune to hacking, but have you read about any ransomware attacks on Macs lately? The number of such problems in the Windows world is orders of magnitude higher.

A 2nd reason I stick with Mac: Apple support is the best. If you're in the US and like your tech questions to be answered promptly on the phone by relaxed, patient people in the US or Canada, Apple is your only source for this experience. I have nothing against people who work in call centers in India, the Philippines, or wherever. Am just saying Apple doesn't offshore its customer support.

tech support? I can't remember the last time I needed to contact my PC manufacturer for something like that!

Xentinus: Anything, less than Sony a6000 is failure. They don't need to discover America once again.

@PhotoUniverse - what is it with you and toys? I own a Nikon DSLR but previously owned Sony gear and they were far from "toys." You are making yourself sound like some kind of pretentious snob.

SRT201: Oh that's just precious isn't it! Adobe is finally noticing that their heavy-handed licensing and general disdain for the user is effecting their bottom line. Well now we can be sure that they are well and truly interested in giving users what they have been asking for.

Yeah right!

Adobe's arrogance has provided the opportunity for a number of good RAW development alternatives to emerge and some of them are excellent and MUCH faster than Adobe products. I've moved away from Adobe as have so many others.

Arrogance eventually comes back to bite the arrogant. Enjoy the rewards Adobe!

I have tried every alternative and none are as good as Lightroom and Photoshop.
