In reply to:

Kiril Karaatanasov: Did not RX100 IV feature high frame rate modes up to 1000 fps?

The comparison table says 1080p 120fps max. I believe it was a bit higher although resolution drops.

These high frame rate modes are something quite interesting actually. Do other vendors offer them given that the sensor under the hood is same and probably much of the electronics around it.....

PS The 120fps mode mentioned on page 1 is not even listed in the specs of this new Panasonic? Makes me wonder what other modes are absent from the table on page 2?

Pretty sure Richard only included full resolutions for burst mode.

In reply to:

dopravopat: "So, about those lenses..."

Please test how the camera performs with the Sigma 18-35 f1.8 and 50-100 f1.8 (via adapter). How they focus in stills mode, if the stated "Image stabilization: Sensor-shift" works and how effective it is. I would really appreciate this, thanks.

The sensor-shift spec was incorrect. It's 5-axis digital IS for video only.

odoketa: I went digital in 1999, and wish I'd waited just a little bit longer. But my tool of choice was the finepix 2800

Two whole megapixels! So much more than my first camera (640x480), and with a zoom lens!

Fist bump to @Carey

yabba dabba doo: Does DPR purchase their sample cameras or does Canon give them to them?

They are loaned from the manufacturer. If they weren't you certainly wouldn't see day 1 previews like this one (and others).

Sdaniella: "Screen / viewfinder
Articulated LCD: Fully articulated"? is a typo

typo needs fix

although, I do wish Canon offer one on their FF 5D dSLR, albeit, a modular/removable VASS (Vari-Angle Swivel Screen)

spec is fixed

J A C S: I thought that Canon announced new lenses, not glass?

The table says that the 24-105 is f/2.8?

About the number of blades - I am very curious to see the starbursts of the new 24-105. With an even number of blades, you get fewer but longer spikes. For example, I really like what the 50L does (8 blades) with night shots. But the current 24-105 is not so great for that, same number of blades.

@JACS: wrong lens was in the table, it's fixed. Thanks for pointing that out.

CaMeRa QuEsT: Admin, according to the specs, the D3400 is exactly the same size as the D3300. It does, however, weights .5 once less.

Thanks for catching that!

Don't let this little unloved but precious mirrorless get to you or you'll be know as that "cat lady who likes the m3" around the office, lol...

No, I'm stuck with the M3. Allison gets the M10, which is even more fun.

In reply to:

marcoslee2: The review states the battery can be charged in-camera but the manual doesn't mention it. Would someone who owns the camera confirm if the battery will charge in-camera?

I don't know why it's in the manual, but Canon insists that it does. I've plugged it into a Samsung USB charger and a light comes on briefly but then goes out. Canon says you need their own AC adapter (CA-DC30) but I can't imagine why.

On article Second Time Around: Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II Review (329 comments in total)
In reply to:

Alastair Norcross: A mostly fair review, but I find the complaints about JPEG image quality rather funny, and silly. Does the reviewer not know that JPEG noise reduction can be turned down or up in the camera? Or that sharpness levels can be controlled with multiple settings on no fewer than three parameters? The G7XII is an advanced compact camera. To complain about the default settings, when these can and should be varied considerably is pointless. Other than that, as I said, a pretty fair review. It's a really excellent compact camera, and an ideal everyday and travel companion.
I also find it strange that much attention at all is paid to JPEG image quality on an advanced camera such as the G7XII. If you buy this camera, you probably care about image quality. If you care about image quality, you probably shoot RAW. Given that the G7XII has very useful, and quite fast, in-camera RAW processing, there's really not much reason to shoot JPEG.

We do mention that the noise reduction can be adjusted but it made almost zero difference. You are correct about sharpening and it's something that we'll add very soon.

Yoshiki Nakamura: For those of you who are in and around Seattle, I'd posted information on the photo shooting sites for Lake Union July 4th fireworks. I hope this could help and provide some hints to capture your great images tomorrow night.

I hadn't thought of South Alki. I'd need a much, much longer lens than I currently have!

On article The price is right: Canon EOS Rebel T6 / 1300D Review (421 comments in total)
In reply to:

Fujica: I assume Canon did their homework before releasing this camera but in my personal opinion I don't see much of a market left for this camera.

It is however really inexpensive for a model with a press release dated 2016. At $500 for the kit with an 18-55mm lens, it doesn't sound like a bad deal.

But newer is not always better. Much of the camera is based on a higher-end model that dates back to 2013 and which is still available, the EOS Rebel T5i (EOS 700D), but with features stripped out and Wi-Fi added. And that model was only a minor update over its predecessor from 2012, the T4i (EOS 650D).

The T6 is basically a point-and-shoot with a big sensor for better photo quality; though one of the attractions of a dSLR is the ability to swap lenses. That said I think most people stick with the one that comes with the kit.

I can't make predictions for 2016, but the Rebel T5 was the best selling camera in 2015, or very close to it.

In reply to:

obsolescence: Another approach to "round-ups" would be based on systems best suited to specific kinds of work, such as sports, fashion, weddings, portraits, studio/products, street/documentary, travel, etc. State the parameters for what makes them best for that work. Then show various statistics such as pricing & sales figures, available prime and zoom lenses, compatibility with other-brand lenses, duration on the market, rental availability, and query the readers to indicate their ownership and to rate them. I think that information would help with selecting products for a desired purpose.

Use cases are definitely something we're thinking about for future roundups!

PhotoUniverse: Why didn't you include Nikon D750? It's $1,996.95 at Amazon!!

MSRP of D750 is $2295. a7R is under $2000 now (the MSRP has been lowered since launch).

In reply to:

Favorable Exponynt: The D750 is also in this range I believe? Should have just made a Full Frame category to include the A7 R II and the D750 and D810 and 5D MK III D5 and 1Dx Mk II are outliers.

D750 MSRP is $2295, so it's in the next group.

In reply to:

PhotoUniverse: @DPR staff

Is there a reason why the D750 wasn't included? I am just curious! Some people below/above mentioned that it's based on MSRP at launch. However, when I checked your A7R's announcement, its MSRP at launch was $2299!

I am not saying there is a conspiracy. Maybe it's just something we might be missing.

The D750 is in the level above this, which hasn't been published yet. The current MSRP of the a7R is under $2000 so this is where it landed. I absolutely agree that going by price isn't ideal, but each option has its pros and cons.
