ET2: A $20 bill and a few $1 bills as a background image? Didn't you guys have a few $100 bills to use?

The suitcase full of money from Sony hasn't arrived yet.

In reply to:

villagranvicent: Question... if "Nikon abandoned the DL-series before they were ever launched" as you just said, then why still show on your database?

They need to be there in order to serve as a hub for all DL-related content. The description on their product page says that they were never released. Not a great solution but it's the best one we have.

Calvin Chann: Without the extensive catalogue of long prime native glass, how much use is this camera really? 70-200 with a 1.4x converter is as long as you can get with good glass.

Don't forgot that new 100-400 F4.5-5.6 G Master ;-)

Muster Mark: Hmmm, Gallery seems broken. Maybe there is high traffic or something, but I am stuck on the loading screen indefinitely. Other galleries work just fine. (Firefox 52.02 64 bit, ubuntu 16.04)

Should be fixed, let me know if you're still having trouble.

On article Nikon D7500 vs Nikon D500: Which is better for you? (397 comments in total)
In reply to:

Average User: Interesting article, but it feels as though the D7200 should be included in this discussion. By all reports the D7200 is an almost perfect camera with a really great sensor. Some might say, they would like everything in the new camera, but with the D7200 sensor. But we don't have that choice.
Additions to the 7500 compared to the 7200, which contribute significantly to better IQ are: tiltable screen; touch screen; much better fine tune; better auto focus; and better video. It's a compelling list. You give up one card slot and trade away a little bit of resolution to get better low light. Overall, it's significantly better.
Given the excellence of the D7200, the upgrade from D7200 to D7500, would be a half-step. If I were going to upgrade from the D7200, it would be to the D500.
Price differences are overrated. The real investment anyone makes in a camera, is the hundreds of hours it takes to learn it.

An article covering that very subject will be posted in a few days.

Another photography-related game, though much more modern, is Life is Strange. Dialog is a bit hokey at times but it's very emotional and a real sob-fest at the end. Highly recommended!

On article Nikon announces midrange D7500 DSLR (396 comments in total)
In reply to:

Rahul D: Interesting downgrades in this upgrade:
1. Only one card slot
2. Megapixel
3. Battery 15% less juice
4. Size is a tad bigger
5. Same AF points
Don't think it will benefit more for existing D7200 users IQ wise. Perhaps its only for people who care about 4k, deeper buffer, batch raw processing and same touch screen similar to D500. If higher ISO is cleaner than D7200 (assuming low megapixels it might be) it might be a good second body.

The battery has more juice, but the camera just drinks it faster than on the D7200 :)

In reply to:

lukecookphoto: So is it a 1.5x crop for 4k or a 2x crop, because you said it's a 1.5x crop which is confusing because APS-C is already 1.5x, so there would be no reason to single out the 4k, right?

There's a 1.5x crop on top of the 1.5x APS-C crop, so 2.25x total. I believe it's just 1.5x in 1080p and below.

On article Canon EOS 77D / 9000D sample gallery (147 comments in total)
In reply to:

kkkwkdk: @DPR Thanks for this gallery.
"...stay tuned for updates once we get Raw support"
So the JPEGs are OOC since there is no Raw support (by ACR I assume)?
I think there *is* RAW support by DPP, isn't it?
Does the 77D provide in body RAW conversion?

We like to do all of our Raw conversions in ACR whenever possible. Much to our disappointment the 77D does not have in-camera Raw conversion.

In reply to:

TwoMetreBill: No battery grip available, contrary to review, without which this camera is way too small for my adult hands. So it will be a used X-T1 for me. Sad as the higher IQ of the 20 would be nice.
Net: a very nice camera with serious handling issues.

Can you point out where in the review a battery grip is mentioned?

In reply to:

wb2trf: The continuous shooting spec shown in this review table for the A6300 is 8fps. But actually it it is 11fps with AF, but without interframe updating of the display. 8fps is the speed with AF and interframe (so called "continuous") updating of the VF. The A6000 is also 11fps with AF but has a "lagging image" update of the VF.

Thanks for the correction!

Xaver3: With the X-T10 you could costomize the front dial for ISO setting. Is that still possible with the X-20?

Not it is not possible.

In reply to:

flysurfer: "What you don't get are zebra patterns, a histogram and face detection. The X-T2 offers face detection"...

Claiming that the X-T20 doesn't offer Face Detection in video mode os pretty bold, because my X-T2 certainly offers FD during video recording.

It's like in the X-T2: FD in HD mode, no FD in 4K mode. No difference.

Thanks for pointing this out, I've added that.

In reply to:

TheWhiteDog: Between this review and the article about the GFX 50S Fuji is not having a good day at dpreview! I thought this camera, given its price point, would have gotten a Gold award. The article on the the GSX 50S seems odd also, never have I seen an article like that on dpreview- essentially it had a "you don't need this, so don't buy it" tone to the article.

As mentioned in another comment, the X-T20 was on the cusp of silver and gold. Slept on it and decided that silver was the right choice.

In reply to:

Antonis30: Interesting how this camera got the same score as the Canon EOS M5, 82%.Frankly due to the superior lens lineup and seemingly better sensor, I expected a higher score for the X-T20.

The X-T20's award is really on the cusp of gold. After sleeping on it, silver won out.

Scintilla Aquila: As of 11:21 A.M. EDT, the two links in the "Dynamic Range" section aren't working; the X-T20 isn't available on the dropdown list of cameras on those pages.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention, it's fixed now.

In reply to:

dudewithcamera: Can we stop calling the Fuji XT series "DSLR style"? They're‚Äč SLR-styled. No DSLR ever looked like the cameras in this series.

This series of models look the way SLR cameras looked *before* digital.

I'm not making a dig on DSLR styling. It's fine. I have a DSLR. I'm just saying that these cameras specifically do not look like DSLRs Panasonic's GH series, yes -- these, no.

Point well taken, I've changed it.

KonstantinosK: Interesting. I didn't know about folded optics. Is there the same solution in my TZ-5? And is this used in today's travel zooms?

Minolta made quite a few cameras with folded optics, like this one:
