  • In March 2012 €1 was $1.32. Now it is $1.13. The European price in dollars in 2012 was $4354. The European price in dollars in 2016 is $4593. Another way of thinking about it is that if you flew to ...
  • Canon has clearly demonstrated that they don't want to use third party sensors.  If they were going to, I think they'd take the universally highly-regarded Sony sensor instead of what amounts to a ...
  • I think the rule is pretty simple: if someone can stare with their eyes the can usually shoot with their camera. People expect privacy in their homes and under their clothes. If someone sticks ...
  • I see this type of behavior on other forums and don't think it is specific to DPR. I can think of four possible reasons: 1.  The respondent has a useful answer and doesn't think the restriction is ...
  • You only get a small amount of time.  Don't waste it worring about making a entirely future- proof purchase.  SLRs are well established and won't disappear in ten years.  And if they do disappear ...
  • I think it means that Canon is good at the things professional photojournalists actually care about. Whether that is reliability, support, ubiquity, ease of use, or simply bribing photojournalists ...
  • i agree that the telephoto landscape is great, but I usually end up with a hazy mush.  Maybe you have figured out good ways around that problem.
  • Thanks again. Some of that made sense. Are there books you could recommend so I don't hijack this thread with dumb questions?
  • Can you discuss a realistic time frame for high ISO improvement?
  • Called live view? I don't understand the appeal of a totally mirrorless 5D. Either you shorten the flange distance requiring an adapter for EF lenses or you keep the flange distance and leave room ...
  • I thought we were getting close to the theoretical noise limits at high ISO.  Maybe not close, but not 3 stops away, either.  Does someone know how close current models actually are?
  • Photography isn't the way I'd do that particular measurement. For transmission measurements all you really need is 1 point and 1 detector--imaging add complexity that it doesn't seem like you need. ...
  • Great low light performance, great low light AF and remote hooting should make the 6DII the choice for owl enthusiasts. I'm worried that the Canon will leave some owl sounds out of the 6DII and ...
  • Is really what we should be doing. I remember always feeling good about myself when I would pass someone on a much better bike and worse when getting passed by someone on a crappier bike. I never ...
  • I can't say whether or not Lemming2008 is a good engineer or not, but it's clear he is an engineer and it's pretty clear you are not. And to answer your point, I actually do avoid features I'm ...
  • With toddlers it's definitely more of the "get that glass somewhere up high" or "let's get you a sippy cup" kind of thinking. Like I said, lots of competent adults use cameras.  I'm sure some of ...
  • Someone in your photo club is having a laugh.  I saw go with it and organize a manscape exhibition.  Make sure to post the announcements far and wide. The real question is if it's still a landscape ...
  • If you're either an engineer or someone with a toddler, you stop seeing things as the valuable features that they are and start looking at them as things that will break first.  That's certainly ...
  • It's not clear what you're going on about.  You've made a big list of things that Canon is almost certainly not going to do with their 1 series cameras.  It's pretty clear they aren't interested ...
  • If you're a Sony shooter, for sure.  I'd imagine the excitement for those interested in Sony products is higher than the excitement for Canon's customers. The 1-series is a professional tool ...
