On article Opinion: Do we really need all those buttons and dials? (874 comments in total)
In reply to:

Fotoni: Physical buttons are often much more convenient and more precise. Smaller touch screens are usually a very clumsy and a slow way to activate something. Touch screen is very good when the screen is quite big like tablets often have. I cannot imagine how you can hand hold a camera and same time access a big touch screen. Physical buttons work better there.

I was afraid when I switched from my 77D to the D610 I would really miss the touchscreen. Turns out, it wasn't as big a deal as I thought. I very much love all the buttons I now have!

These are actually so good! Sometimes, the winning images in contests seem sub-par or lack creativity, but these, these are really good!

mick232: The good news is: stick to A mount and you are instantly cured of any gear acquisition syndrome. There simply isn't anything new to buy anymore.

LensBeginner: I'm confused... so the "original" HDR+ didn't actually perform any bracketing, just a given amount of underexposed pictures?

Ha ha, not trolling, just guessing! Thank you for correcting my math!

Its similar to the RAW merge options in CHDK. You can shoot four images at 1/125 and additively stack them to get a 1/20 shutter speed equivalent but without motion blur

I like the Canon EX-RT system. It integrates well with their cameras.

Jones Indiana: D6 and 1Dxmkiv might actually be obsolete by next year.

Technology on mirrorless is going so fast that it may well surpass the capabilities of a DSLR by next year. Take a look at the upcoming Canon R5 or at the already 'old' A9II and one can see that the DSLR is now aging at a rapid pace.

They may have been the workhorses for the professional for years.
However horses and plough which served farmers for years could also not win from a modern tractor.

Horse and plow still have certain advantages, and for many are the only affordable option: transfer the analogy to DLSR vs Mirrorlesss

While this is no miracle worker, this new super-resolution feature brings a good bit to the table. I had a group photo of me and some friends that was taken on a smartphone's front camera, which meant the resolution was rather low. I ran the super-resolution on it and, with a little sharpening and contrast, came up with a much-improved image.

That awkward moment when even the incredible "specs" on the April fools joke fail to please the keyboard warriors.

dellaaa: The wheels differ from shot to shot, in the shot from underneath the wheels have straight threads, in the others the threads are angles and in some the angled threads are missing pieces.

Can someone explain this?

lol, why not

Madden: I greatly appreciate the amazing work and thank @Jeremy Gray for posting it!
I don't understand, however, why the brand name is so prominent in this posting. I'm aware there are hardly any competitors for this sort of cameras, but I don't think this can be a reason to include the brand in the article at all (in the title, even). Or am I simply overlooking the "sponsored" tag?

Perhaps the staff of DPR found this and thought it was so interesting that they needed an excuse to post it on the website :)

Malling: It’s an interesting concept, however interesting it is, it still doesn’t change the fact that it’s an ergonomic nightmare, there are no grip, like on any smartphone it gives a certain amount of challenges if you want to hold it firmly and steady, with this however you additionally have to toss one of the L mounts relatively heavy and gigantic lenses and that is just gonna make matters worse. The placement of the EVF all to the side is also not great, the one dial, means that your practically dependent on lenses with an aperture ring or have to live with the one placed on the detachable EVF that is again an ergonomic nightmare.

I understand they needed to make some compromises, I’m just not convinced they made the right ones. Lastly somehow I hope EU will stop this locked mount nonsense that lock you into one system, please give us one universal mount.

L Mount's biggest savior is probably the Pany S series of FF cameras. Those are some heavy hitters that I would actually prefer to anything from Sony or Canon due to the large, comfortable size. Nikon's Z6,7 cameras follow close.

These are some very nice photographs. slide #3 seems a little over-processed as does #8 but they are still beautiful.

TheGrilledCheese: Fro knows nothing about photos, but he definitely knows Youtube.

His style of conversation and work is very different than many others. I think we should applaud him for daring to be different and not changing his creative process or personality for the sake of internet forums like this one.

I beg to differ. Have you seen his portfolio of images, clients, and critiques?

I sent this video to my photography professor. Fingers crossed!
