On article What you need to know about Sony's a7R III (622 comments in total)
In reply to:

Photo graphic: The Multi-shot mode is a nice addition, but also kind of a bummer. It needs to wait at least 1 second between each shot, so 3 seconds of wait time total.

I've run into many instances with my Olympus where I only had about 1 or 2 seconds to take a picture because of people walking by or cars driving by possibly ruining the shot.
Still, Kudos for adding it.

The biggest disappointment is no touchscreen. Being able to touch an eye or other focal point on the screen and instantaneously taking a picture is amazingly helpful. Changing focus during video by touching a point on the screen is also a great benefit.
We talk about how great these cameras are for holding over our heads or down low to get different perspectives, and adding a tap focus/shutter makes doing those so much faster and easier.

Good news: it does have a touchscreen :)

Phyltre: I'm curious how they crammed in that double-size battery, and more ports, and extra card slot--but the thing's still lighter. Was there a block of lead somewhere in the A7RII?

So were we!

Jefftan: no mention of waterproof or weather seal now

if as rumored, this thing is waterproof than it may worth the price

It's weather-resistant, not waterproof.

danski0224: The Note 8 was tied for the top oh so briefly..... :)

Still ranked at 100 for photo quality (vs 99 on the Pixel 2)!

Signed, Note 8 owner.

LightInHH: Incrediable fast review. The presentation from Google is only couple hours ago.

No sarcasm implied. I'm sure they got one just like how The Verge, etc get them for fancy preview videos. Plus it's good PR.

I think it's safe to say that DXO had a Pixel 2 well before launch.

I have a dream: Would be nice to have a 2-column table with MK3 - MK4 specs next to each other.
Then we could see what really changes.
Or, even better, a 4-column table, from mk1 to mk4.

In reply to:

otto k: 625 is not in S8, it's in most middle level phones, not flagships. It's a bit pricy, existing cameras offer mostly the same for around half the price, or am I wrong?

Missed that when I changed the model #, thanks.

In reply to:

Dante Birchen: According to the Qualcomm guy at the press conference it has a 600 series chip not a 800 series one. Good choice by ricoh. It allows them to hitchhike on mobile developments and use Android OS so it is easier to make apps for it.

We were told 835 (which does sound like overkill) - i will follow-up with Ricoh.

I can't think of the last time I saw Rishi holding a Canon camera :)

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).

In reply to:

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.

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".
