Robert Howell: Miss my E-10 which I still use in studio sometimes. Great skin tones and small file size were a breeze. Also slow as crap

I have an E-10 and am planning to write up a tbt article about it too!

sh10453: The Canon FF 5D was a game changer.
Was it introduced at Photokina 2005?

There was no Photokina 2005 - the show is even years only.

Shut up and take my money.

PS - press release below all the notes.

iae aa eia: "I like that the lens has a bit more reach than the FZ1000, but the way it's always-extended feels a bit awkward, though I understand why Panasonic is doing it."

Why is Panasonic doing it? I am not sure if I understand that. Is it that external parts moving make the camera more expensive to produce and doesn't allow for a lighter and silent zooming? I think those are the or some of the reasons.

Having the zoom internally lets it focus smoother without any "zoom blurring" (their words). It can move VERY slowly using the Fn1/2 buttons, it's very impressive.

In reply to:

Kiril Karaatanasov: Did not RX100 IV feature high frame rate modes up to 1000 fps?

The comparison table says 1080p 120fps max. I believe it was a bit higher although resolution drops.

These high frame rate modes are something quite interesting actually. Do other vendors offer them given that the sensor under the hood is same and probably much of the electronics around it.....

PS The 120fps mode mentioned on page 1 is not even listed in the specs of this new Panasonic? Makes me wonder what other modes are absent from the table on page 2?

Pretty sure Richard only included full resolutions for burst mode.

In reply to:

dopravopat: "So, about those lenses..."

Please test how the camera performs with the Sigma 18-35 f1.8 and 50-100 f1.8 (via adapter). How they focus in stills mode, if the stated "Image stabilization: Sensor-shift" works and how effective it is. I would really appreciate this, thanks.

The sensor-shift spec was incorrect. It's 5-axis digital IS for video only.

odoketa: I went digital in 1999, and wish I'd waited just a little bit longer. But my tool of choice was the finepix 2800

http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/fuji/finepix2800-review/index.html

Two whole megapixels! So much more than my first camera (640x480), and with a zoom lens!

Fist bump to @Carey

yabba dabba doo: Does DPR purchase their sample cameras or does Canon give them to them?

They are loaned from the manufacturer. If they weren't you certainly wouldn't see day 1 previews like this one (and others).

In reply to:

Sdaniella: "Screen / viewfinder
Articulated LCD: Fully articulated"? is a typo

typo needs fix

although, I do wish Canon offer one on their FF 5D dSLR, albeit, a modular/removable VASS (Vari-Angle Swivel Screen)

spec is fixed

J A C S: I thought that Canon announced new lenses, not glass?

The table says that the 24-105 is f/2.8?

About the number of blades - I am very curious to see the starbursts of the new 24-105. With an even number of blades, you get fewer but longer spikes. For example, I really like what the 50L does (8 blades) with night shots. But the current 24-105 is not so great for that, same number of blades.

@JACS: wrong lens was in the table, it's fixed. Thanks for pointing that out.

CaMeRa QuEsT: Admin, according to the specs, the D3400 is exactly the same size as the D3300. It does, however, weights .5 once less.

Thanks for catching that!

PhotoKhan: Allison you're stuck with this, aren't you :)
Don't let this little unloved but precious mirrorless get to you or you'll be know as that "cat lady who likes the m3" around the office, lol...

@PhotoKhan
No, I'm stuck with the M3. Allison gets the M10, which is even more fun.

In reply to:

marcoslee2: The review states the battery can be charged in-camera but the manual doesn't mention it. Would someone who owns the camera confirm if the battery will charge in-camera?

I don't know why it's in the manual, but Canon insists that it does. I've plugged it into a Samsung USB charger and a light comes on briefly but then goes out. Canon says you need their own AC adapter (CA-DC30) but I can't imagine why.

On article Second Time Around: Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II Review (294 comments in total)
In reply to:

Alastair Norcross: A mostly fair review, but I find the complaints about JPEG image quality rather funny, and silly. Does the reviewer not know that JPEG noise reduction can be turned down or up in the camera? Or that sharpness levels can be controlled with multiple settings on no fewer than three parameters? The G7XII is an advanced compact camera. To complain about the default settings, when these can and should be varied considerably is pointless. Other than that, as I said, a pretty fair review. It's a really excellent compact camera, and an ideal everyday and travel companion.
I also find it strange that much attention at all is paid to JPEG image quality on an advanced camera such as the G7XII. If you buy this camera, you probably care about image quality. If you care about image quality, you probably shoot RAW. Given that the G7XII has very useful, and quite fast, in-camera RAW processing, there's really not much reason to shoot JPEG.

We do mention that the noise reduction can be adjusted but it made almost zero difference. You are correct about sharpening and it's something that we'll add very soon.

I hadn't thought of South Alki. I'd need a much, much longer lens than I currently have!
