On article Canon EOS Rebel SL2 / EOS 200D Shooting Experience (109 comments in total)
In reply to:

Kharan: I don't know if it's DPR's compression messing things up, but those samples have a very strong '2010' feel to them... I owned an SL1 and it was a very nice JPEG shooter, despite the blown oranges and yellows (fantastic for many landscapes, terrible for people). These samples look drab, soft, and kind of washed out.

@Kharan: is there one image in particular that stands out?

On article Nikon announces development of D850 (538 comments in total)
In reply to:

ybizzle: Nikon is the only camera maker that announces the development of future models, instead of just announcing the camera itself when it's ready. In other news, Nikon announces the development of the D6, D510, etc etc. Shocking...

To be fair, I think Panasonic did the same thing with the GH5 (and possibly GH4).

Corkcampbell: I saw the film a few hours ago at an AMC multiplex in Lakewood, WA; it looked to be the 70mm version, although when I asked the staff about it they didn't have a clue to what I was talking about. It was letter-boxed horizontally.
My comment about the film which no one has mentioned is the color; it was incredibly noticeable when the first scene began. How much the local theatre's projection setup affects color, if any, is beyond my knowledge level. And, I've read the reviews in the major newspapers and I don't remember color being mentioned. However, I liked it. If you love the color in "The Ten Commandments," you're not going to like this, ha ha!

Are you referring to how the color was very "cool"? If so, I noticed that right away when we were watching the 70mm version.

If you can find one I'd be happy to shoot a gallery :)

In reply to:

gearfreak: In the comparison table on the first page, I'm pretty sure the X-E2S only has one control dial, not two. Unless I'm missing one?

thanks for catching that, will fix.

Aroart: It would be really interesting to see a side by side images of this vs the x trans sensor...

@Aroart you can do that with our studio comparison tool, [like so](https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr18=daylight&attr13_0=fujifilm_xa3&attr13_1=fujifilm_xe2s&attr13_2=fujifilm_x100f&attr13_3=fujifilm_xt20&attr15_0=jpeg&attr15_1=jpeg&attr15_2=jpeg&attr15_3=jpeg&attr16_0=100&attr16_1=200&attr16_2=200&attr16_3=200&normalization=full&widget=1&x=0&y=0).

bertalan: This could be wrong but BHPhotovideo says
"Users can even use focus peaking during video recording."

Just took a look at this. The camera does indeed have focus peaking but it's not available in video.

In reply to:

CCD FTW: It's interesting how the A6000 is treated as a red headed step child around DPR. It's either 'too old' or 'too cheap' it would seem. It's not top tier enough and so only the 6300/6500 go into discussion and yet in this category we need to look at other low end POS, rather than it because 'we can't believe they still make it'. Also what about the A5100?

Problem is nobody is making anything remotely close for the price point, YEARS after it came out. Olympus only have PDAF in their $2k flagship. Fuji are better but still really only the X-T20/2/XP2 are superior and all are much more expensive. Canon has the M10 in its price bracket, no need to say any more. Panasonic are probably the closest with the GX85, which IS an interesting alternative. EVF is poor, but 4K is good and so is the iBIS. Outright IQ might be behind a little way though.

But here we are, reviewing another low end mirrorless camera and pretending the real competition doesn't exist.

I think it's more flattering that an aging camera is still competitive. I write it as a "pro" for the a6000, rather than a "con".

In reply to:

BasilG: "Focus method: Extending front" - according to Nikon USA, it's an internal focusing design. Which is it?

Why it's internal, of course! Thanks for catching that.

Dante Birchen: Great 4k video!

Microphone port No
Headphone port No
EVF optional (for how much?)

$600 for the EVF, if I recall.

dgumshu: It has no viewfinder...

It does after you pay $600 :)

In reply to:

silentstorm: Any clue of the buffer size? How many raw shots before the camera slows down?

I dig the articulate touch screen! :thumbsup:

The machine-translated version of the Japanese specs say somewhere between 18 and 21 Raw shots in a burst.

In reply to:

Kwick1: Barney, your spec sheeet says it doesn't have image stabilization. It does have in-body stabilization, at least for video. To be confirmed for stills.

It doesn't have in-body IS, which is why that field says 'no'.

rfsIII: That bird! Those flowers! Beautiful shots! All you need now is to get a nice calico friend for your gray cat and you'll be awesome. (Maybe an eye-popping Hawaiian shirt or two for your models?)
Anyway, beautiful work and thanks for proving that Seattle isn't completely gray.

I have a calico, perhaps we should introduce the two.

Thank you for catching that.

DPPMetro: Unfortunately, Pentax has nothing in this range because the K-3ii has been discontinued and a replacement is doubted to be on the horizon.

The K-3 II is in this roundup:

piratejabez: Is this a TBT? Is it supposed to be tagged as such?

Yes it is... i've changed the blurb on the homepage to reflect that.

In reply to:

supersonic: Very puzzled by this 9 June 2017 reposting of what just looks like a round-up from more than a year ago.

Has there been any new material included ?. If so, it would be helpful if it could be made clear.

The majority of the roundup is the same- the FZ2500 was the page that got the most updating since we hadn't reviewed it prior to posting the previous version.

In reply to:

ShootFilmNotMegaPixels: Price should never be involved with considering one product against another, especially when DPreview specifically groups the reviews by price range and then makes another price range within that price range.

We are working toward taking price out of the equation (no pun intended) on future revisions of the roundup.
