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.

Becksvart: "Lard lad" with a giant stomach invites you to eat donuts..?

Photos from phones are becoming rather good.

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!

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!

In reply to:

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.

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.

pacnwhobbyist: Dpreview staff: What film sim. were you using (provia, velvia, classic chrome etc etc)?

I can't speak for the others, but I used Standard/Provia.

In reply to:

Accipiter_89: As far as I can tell the gx85 isn't mentioned in this preview...strange as it's basically the same camera....

You are correct that it's not mentioned- I focused more on it being a peer to the G85, which is a lot closer in price than the GX85.

They're coming! We didn't receive it until yesterday afternoon so there wasn't any time to use it.

In reply to:

Jacques Cornell: The EVF magnification is the same as the GX7 & GX85, but those both have 16:9 panels that use only a fraction of their area to display 4:3 images. I wonder whether this is a 4:3 panel, in which case images would appear larger. Can DPR clarify?

It is indeed a 16:9 panel.

cosinaphile: in the review you state:

"Something lost in all of the GX9's specs is that it regains the built-in flash that the GX8 lacked. With a guide number of 4.2m at ISO 100, it's pretty weak compared to the Fuji X-E3 (8m) and Sony a6300 (6m), but it's better than nothing. For more power, there's a hot shoe, with an X-sync time of 1/200 sec. The flash can be bounced manually, which is a nice touch."

htis is misleading , the fuji xe3 has no built in flash , but a dongle clip on flash , ... one of several reasons why i skipped this xe3 after owning 2 xe2 bodies

bravo to panny for keeping features in the smaller body after crippling the huge gx8

Thanks for catching that!

In reply to:

Ben Herrmann: Hmnnnn, unusual - the specs say that the only color space available is sRGB (no Adobe RGB). That's odd as Olympus cameras - even the lower tier models, always gave you a choice of color spaces.

Also, looking at the hot shoe area, there doesn't appear to be any way to attach one of the optional external EVF's - I hope that isn't the case also. Olympus always made it so you could attach one of those, which really came in handy.

Other than the addition of 4K, they have really dumbed down this model - shame as the likes of the E-PL5, E-PL6, and E-PL7 give you a few more options.

It could have Adobe RGB, but there's no mention of it on the Europe or machine-translated Japanese product pages. If you see it on an official site, let me know.

Hellraiser: Nice looking camera.
But why are they still using that beaten up 16MP sensor?! :/

They told us it was "new", but I'm not really buying that.

In reply to:

Revenant: Fuji also announced the release of the X-A20 today, although not in North America or Europe, apparently. I guess the X-A10 wasn't a big seller here.

I'm not seeing that on the Fuji Japan site. Do you have a link?

:P typo ^

That's so odd, the same thing happened the last time I pasted a Fujifilm press release into our system. Must be some weird formatting in there.
