MarcMedios: So, quick question, is Godox reliable as a brand?

Thanks all

MarcMedios: Honestly, 99% of the feedback in professional forums is negative. Yongnuo is one of those brands that people buy because they are dirt cheap; they are considered flimsy, unreliable, prone to constant failures.

MarcMedios: I can't imagine paying almost $1,300 for a camera with a rinky dinky fixed lens where a mere 70-something mm is an F 5.6. That's downright awful

Yeah yeah blah blah, it remains a low Tele with an unacceptable f stop.

scotthunter: Not a single mention of using a tripod to compensate for the aperture limitations of the lens, even though the conclusion of the review states that the camera is good for landscapes. Put it on a tripod, lower the shutter speed to let some more light in, increase the ISO as required, and this camera is capable of better images than the G7X II or RX100V due to the significantly larger sensor providing better dynamic range and increased resolution.

The camera is totally useless for photographing concerts, for example. Who carries a tripod to a concer? Totally useless for photographing street. Totally useless for photographing real travel

Perfect street camera when coupled with my 24 mm f 2.8; non intimidating, non threatening, compact, and performs well

frogpoet: I wonder why Canon thinks wi-fi and all that instant sharing junk is needed? If you want all that stick with your smart-phone! I feel a bit old fashioned perhaps but half the fun of photography is in the darkroom/Lightroom where you can tinker if the camera does not completely share your intensions when you release the shutter.
Camera mfgrs should focus more with improving their focusing capabilities, lens perfection (like getting the Fs down-as well as the ISOs). Getting the weight factor down a bit on the longer lenses would be nice too. Improvements like better weather proofing should come WAY before wi-fi and other such foolishness!!
OK, so much for a photographer who's cell phone is a tool not an appendage!

I like having wifi; just being able to transfer the photos to my computer is a fantastic step. Not having to bother with the old-fashioned SD cards with wifi is even better.

This is definitely a worthy 2nd body. I have a 7D and a 60D but I still use my original T2i with a 24 mm 2.8 for two things: street photography, where the camera's non-threatening size and flat lens don't intimidate. And heavy metal/death metal concerts where there is the risk that the camera will get banged up, or have drinks spilled on it. I can see a 24mp fast focusing cheap body being a great alternative.

Apart from the subscription and data hostage situation described by Falconeyes, if you have the discipline to input everything into your phone, check before, check after, you probably will have the discipline to not lose anything. In a decade as a photographer I think I've lost a charger and a 25 foot extension chord. And the extension chord I "lent" to a fellow photographer who was using it at the time knowing full well that I would never see it.

On article Got focal range? Canon 24-105mm F4L II sample gallery (101 comments in total)

So I have a 24 2.8 and 50 1.4 primes which are tack sharp and 2 24-105's I love them so much I have one in each body. Honestly, unless I am blowing up a picture to 48 x 36, it is hard to tell the difference. I think that at the limit the illumination and shutter speed provide more sharpness. I am so impressed with Canon zooms that I just got the 17-40 f4 and that one, too, is super sharp. Not sure that an upgrade to the II is really warranted

On article F is for '4th': Hands-on with Fujifilm X100F (424 comments in total)

I have an X20 as a "visual notebook" and like it a lot, especially the 4:1 zoom. I can't, for the life of me, seriously consider a $1,200 camera that does not have interchangeable lenses. Why would I want to limit myself to the focal length that some anonymous engineer decided for the camera?
