IgorK: DPREVIEW - can you confirm about GPS in Panasonic Lumix TS7. Specifications say no GPS, In this article you say that you like GPS in TS7, but in the Specifications Compared you show none GPS.

Good catch. The TS7 has a compass & altimeter but no GPS. Location data can b added via a smartphone.

In reply to:

cosinaphile: where is sony rx0??.... sea life looks the best , but to be fair sony rated a mention

We consider the RX0 as more of a GoPro competitor, as it offers numerous accessories and lacks an LCD. We will be updating our action camera buying guide in the near future.

Thanks,
Jeff

typhoonka: The Ricoh link in this guide also leads to Panasonic. ( as well as Panasonic too)

Thanks for catching that, it's been fixed.

l_d_allan: Was I the only one who had trouble finding one of the .... if not THE ... most important spec .... price?
(about $800 at B&H and Amazon ... maybe I didn't look hard enough, but I never did come across the MSRP in the review)

Also the first row of the "how it compares" table on the second page.

TacticDesigns: A great comparison review!

One of my favourite camera segments. And well represented in this review.

To me, this segment makes so much sense.

Want a camera for vacation, but not have to worry about it if you are going to the beach (with the abrasive and invasive sand), water, rain or the camera freezing up while skiing!

Get a tough waterproof compact camera! :)

And what Chris and Jordan mention about the Fujifilm being less expensive is a big reason I like the Fujifilm XP series.

Right now, my daughter has our Fujifilm XP80 with her while she is traveling with friends. Because of its cost I don't feel compelled to constantly warn her to "take care of it", "don't lose it!". LOL.

Also, for me, I've spent so much money on other cameras, I find it hard to justify spending a lot on a vacation camera. For me it's nice this option is there! I greatly appreciate it!

@Frankinidaho we will be covering the Ricoh and SeaLife cameras in our upcoming roundup. Not the Leica, unfortunately.

kharlow: Oops! The wrong camera is referenced in text of the "What's it like to use" link up top, the one with the picture of a roller coaster.

Good catch, thank you.

bolt2014: How can they give this an 81% rating with all the dislikes and the poor image quality rating? I always consider image quality number one in buying a camera!

@samhain We are, and have always been, editorially independent of Amazon's retail business. They have no influence on our reviews or ratings.

gehairing: Isn't there a mistake in the Scene picture ?
Compare the image with a Sony RX100 V in Jpeg 125 on the bank note.
I can't imagine the Panasonic is so bad.

Nope that's correct. Our third test camera was at least that bad. The second was sharper in the center but lousy everywhere else.

In reply to:

Marty4650: I wasn't that impressed with the video quality of this review.... and it was shot with an RX10V. Maybe it is just me, but the video quality looked really mediocre.

For the price of this camera, you could get a Panasonic GH5 or G9. You won't get the same zoom range, but the IQ will be a lot better.

Don't forget that you're watching these on YouTube, which compresses the videos to #%(*#.

Fly18: I think it’s a smart decision they stayed in Calgary. With access to the majestic Canadian Rockies, we’ll see great landscapes providing DPR budget for that.

In defense of Seattle, we can be in the Cascades in about 30 minutes!

PhozoKozmos: now were going to see fewer camera+lens reviews

and more non-camera+lens review content

Quite the contrary, actually!

trenzterra: Just wanted to point out, the weight of the D750 with battery and memory card is 840g, not 750g: http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d750/spec.htm

Fixed, thanks for catching that.

You should see the size of the donuts!

james s. kennedy: I enjoyed the photos, but saw no need to replace my iPhone 8+.

Since I may have DPR’s attention, am I EVER going to see an in-depth review of the Panasonic ZS200? Seriously, can you forecast when the review when the review will appear? I am approaching age 82, and it could well be my last serious camera. $800 is serious cash to me.

We'll be publishing our review in the ZS200 in the next several weeks. Thanks for your patience!

On article Canon EOS M50 Review (1312 comments in total)
In reply to:

frdougal: My 2c, to the reviewers. I think you should seriously consider splitting out "stills performance" vs. "video performance."

It seems that a camera like this is a clear example of the need for such dichotomy. Apparently, the M50 is a pretty good when it comes to stills, and a fairly poor performer when it comes to video (although it seems an argument could be made that it depends on what "video" one is referring to.)

In essence, almost all ILC cameras these days are two different cameras in one body - stills, and video. I think it would be very helpful to your audience to review those separately. I realize you have a section called "video", but elsewhere the two are intermingled. A "Video Performance" and a "Stills Performance" section, with separate grading, would be very helpful.

We are working on revamping the scoring system, so stay tuned!

thoth22: I wonder if it would score differently if no 4k, as that is where many negatives reside. You can see lots of potential here, nicely played Canon.

It definitely would have.

In reply to:

Alastair Norcross: "Canon has also improved subject tracking on the M50. Previous M-series models would lock the focus point as soon as you fully pressed the shutter release, which meant that the camera wouldn't keep focusing during bursts."
Really? My M6 seems to keep focusing during bursts using servo AF. In fact, I've just tested it, and it definitely refocuses.

That was my mistake - we caught it in one place but not another.

Thanks,
Jeff

walker2000: DPReview, M50's 4K rolling shutter is bad. How about 1080p?

No trouble with rolling shutter at 1080.

In reply to:

PhotoDiod: Manufacturers should start flying Dpreview's staff outside of Seattle for the sample galleries' shoots. Places with better light and tanned people (Hawaii, anyone?) would make for a huge ROI.

I fully support this idea.
