On article Fujifilm X-T20 Review (375 comments in total)
In reply to:

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​ 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:

captura: I still have a TZ4 and will take it out of the drawer and try it again, for a few days.
I hope DPR will re-run the Lumix LX3, now that was a real trail-blazer. I still use mine for B&W photos. Something about that sensor...

Ohh, thanks for the tip on the LX3!

In reply to:

triplejaydee: Why aren't more compact cameras using folded optics these days?

Probably because nobody buys compact cameras anymore :)

StevenE: Your article says the T7i does not have a mic input, then it says it does, then it says it doesn't again.
Every other website claims that the T7i DOES have a mic input.
Probably a good idea to clarify this here.

Fixed it while you were typing :)

In reply to:

dlb41: Do these cameras all have pentaprisms or do the lower models have pentamirrors?

The Rebel and 77D are pentamirror.

In reply to:

pacnwhobbyist: The T7i does have a built in microphone jack. Might wanna correct that.

Got it right in the in the table and wrong at the end. Thank you.

UneVache: Throwback Friday about Flight Simulator ? :D

I'm surprised that there's still a pretty active FS X community out there! Almost makes me want to pick up a joystick and get back into it, even though I'm terrible.

In reply to:

Autriche78: Good for Canon, but can someone explain why every manufacturer seems to desire to confuse the consumer with model numbers that bear no obvious relation to hierarchy within a system? So this is below the 5 but above the 3 - and labelled as #6. Seriously...

@RedFox88: Canon sells a ton of cameras in China.

Here's a whole Wikipedia article about unlucky number 4:

I think there's no M4 because the number four is an unlucky number in Chinese, since it sounds like "deceased" or similar. Way back when, Canon skipped the PowerShot G4, as well.

Agreed that it's super-confusing, though.

Thorgrem: So can we expect new Nikon 1 products any time soon?

I think the writing's on the wall.

On article Throwback Thursday: Minolta's prosumer DiMAGE 7 (214 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tom Schum: You wrote "The Minolta GT apochromatic lens had a manual zoom ring (please, someone do this again)".
The Fujifilm X10/X20/X30 series had the manual zoom ring. I bought X10 and X30, and I can tell you it is a great feature.
The X30 vanished from the market so quickly though! I waited about 6 months after introduction, then bought one. It was off the market just a few months later.

That comment is referring to long zoom camera... I'll clarify in the text.

In reply to:

AndroC: "The Minolta GT apochromatic lens had a manual zoom ring (please, someone do this again) and a fly-by-wire focus ring." Don't most zooms have a manual zoom ring? Or am I reading this wrongly?

Edgar_in_Indy: The sample gallery isn't working for me. Bummer.

Me either. And I can't find the original files so I guess we're out of luck. :(

In reply to:

photosen: I still think people using their tablets to take photos looks way more ridiculous.

I was on the trip of a lifetime in Antarctica a few years ago and was shocked to see how many people were taking photos with iPads and the like.

ttran88: What's up with the battery life (390 shots) for an OVF camera? How's the live view AF?

Pretty small battery.

In reply to:

Robemo: It's a bit confusing review which contains some errors/bad choices:

1. The comparison at 400mm shows that the Panasonic focused on the orange crane, the Sony on the white building behind it, making that comparison useless.
2. Why using JPEG's to compare lens quality in the comparison tool? JPEG rendering has never been Panasonics strong point. When you download the RAW files and process them equally, you will find the difference less shocking and at some focal ranges (around 135mm for instance) far less than the JPEG's suggest.

In general (and DPR has mentioned it in other reviews) lenses are the weak spot of these 1 inch high density small sensor cameras with complex zooms. Lenses are strained a lot. DPR mentioned in other reviews (of Sony RX100 models I think) how much trouble it took them to find a review model with a proper lens. Lots of fluctuations in lens performance. That's probably why Sony spent so much effort/money in the RX10 III lens.

@Robemo, these are Raw images which are converted to JPEGs with default ACR settings. You can download the original Raws if you'd like, there's a link right below the thumbnail.

Also, we use tap-to-focus on subjects at infinity, so there shouldn't be any OOF shots.
