Oh what a great article, makes for another wonderful Pixel Peeper Sunday.
I for myself rather go outside and take a actual PHOTO of SOMETHING!
But staring at the screen to detect these ever more miniscule differences here seems really so utterly futile and ridiculous ... funny how so many folks seem to be doing just that - and yes, i am talking about YOU, folks!
ok, and now i brace myself for the perfect s**tstorm.
i go back outside ...

On article Best cameras under $500 in 2021 (356 comments in total)

funny to see the Sony A5100 still to be on this list. it's a 5 year old granddaddy of a camera! i actually agree, this is a fantastic little camera for the money albeit its lack of an EVF which i dont use because i wear glasses. given the fact that it actually can be had for under $400 these days, this must be the camera deal of the year.
or wait a minute, perhaps not, i just saw the A6000 sells for even less now ... around $300, factory refurbished!
THAT must be the best camera/price ratio on the planet!

Why does Leica even bother to put ANYTHING inside its expensive housing?
With this thing, you need to hold both, a camera and a smartphone to check on the photos simultaneously. Might as well just hang an empty Leica casing with a big red dot around your neck and take the pics with your iPhone.
Even selfies - showing off your LEICA at the very same time you take the selfie! How cool is that!?
And - Tah TAH - here we have it, an entirely new category >> The Placebo Camera, The Ultimate Hipster Bling!
Actually sold in jewelry shops, not photo stores. Seems downright cheap next to all the gold chains and little diamonds. And its Man-ly!
Oh yeah, I like it. A Leica with No Display and No Processor! And as an expensive option, they let you add the No Lens feature. This one could come with an even BIGGER red dot instead.
Now how awesome is that!?

On article Which is better: Nikon Z7 vs Sony a7R III (1506 comments in total)

42 Megapixel in a camera are about as necessary as 420hp in a car, but alot less fun.

PLEASE boycott this - or soon, we'll see hundreds of smartphone zombie "photographers" play Pokémon CLICK in all of the worlds most beautiful locations, what a horrible thought!

hopefully, i never meet this guy while he talks to me backwards through his hideous solar eclipse selfie stick setup.

This industry of perpetually incremental improvement with its incredibly wasteful resulting obsolescence is hopefully killed off sooner rather than later by (and here i am pausing) well, by some kind of super smart phone camera which only needs regular software updates and can be used for at least a decade or longer ... yeah, right, wishful thinking i know :-(

On article Have your say: Best compact camera of 2017 (142 comments in total)
In reply to:

Chris Page: Since I can't afford all the 'Best of Cameras', these articles serve as purely entertainment. I would love to see a list of 'Worst Camera's' of 2017. Personally my worst camera of the year is the Ricoh Gr3, 'cos the lazy buggers have failed to make it.

worst compacts of 2017 (as in worst omissions) are the Panasonic LX100 Mk2 and the Sony Alpha a5200 (aka Sony Alpha a5100 Mk2)

"Time top 10 gadgets of the year"? so what!? just another black-friday-go-buy-some-more-crap post. Sadly, we'll be seeing alot more of those until year's end, i know ... can't wait until it's over.

On photo Good Ole Saloon in the Welcome to the Saloon! challenge (2 comments in total)

Like an empty children's playground these pictures look rather sad with the first three winning entries being void of any people. To me, these are not "welcoming saloons", I'd walk right out of an empty saloon like that.

On article Sony Cyber-shot RX10 IV review (588 comments in total)

pretty good score considering all these cons >>> but i'd still get a fairly similar Mk1 and save a whopping $1,200

i just hope DPR will not start to report on every projected gadget with a leadtime of 8 years ;-)

On article Canon EOS Rebel SL2 / EOS 200D Review (549 comments in total)

Hey Jeff, as this is supposed to be a Canon EOS Rebel SL2 shooting experience "right out of the box" - and this happens to be a kit - i think you should have also stuck with that kit and not carry another lens along. this is not how most potential (entry level) buyers would use it, hence your experience will not be matched by many. Nice pics though! :-)

i know it's a horrible thought but my pick will soon be the next smartphone generation, i honestly don't think i will ever buy another camera again after i'll get a new phone. likely this will be something like an iPhone 8 or so.
simply because smartphone picture quality is really quite astounding these days, plus you just can't beat the "it's always there" factor. and the videos are great too. and the easy integration with all the apps and social media and whatnot ...
what do you guys think? honestly!

On article 5 reasons to choose the Leica Q for street photography (24 comments in total)

ahhh, now i understand why all these Leica Q owners i've seen so far seem so very eager to push their red dot into my face. it's the focal length!!
:-)
joking aside, i agree this is a gorgeous camera and i certainly do wish i could afford one - but then again, if i could, i would still spend the money on a GR II or a X100F and take the change to travel for 4 more months ...

In reply to:

Zoom Zoom Zoom: Why is this news? There have been portable SSDs for longer than I can count. I guess anything is news these days when there is no news and something needs to be news..

this is news because they pay for this to be news.
