In reply to:

QuarryCat: unless you take small mFT or Fujifilm lenses, it will get very heavy on your side.
I don't see this as a good practical solution.

Seems ready-made to screw up your back.

The original 70-200 f2.8 L USM was a beauty on my Canon D30. Such great colors. But my favorite Canon lens to date? The "nifty fifty" 50mm f1.8. It does so much for so little.

First I used with any degree of success? My father's Canonet. My first favorite? Olympus Stylus Epic. First digital? Olympus D340-R. First "real" digital? Canon D30.

Finally, a reviewer who doesn't fall all over himself getting lost in the rangefinder mythos. It takes time and a LOT of practice to consistently take good photos with them. But seriously, "I'm getting old"? LOL

Terry M: Oh man! I had one of these and absolutely LOVED my fast-shooting "Uzi"! That constant 2.8 lens was a huge boon to my early digital experience and like another user said, the photos could be blown up to 8x10 pretty nicely. The only thing I didn't like was a tendency in mixed lighting to render blacks as purple, a phenomenon I also recall from Leica's early digital cameras. I sold mine to a coworker who wanted to shoot his kids' soccer games. I'd bought a Canon D30 and 70-200 to start my push into "real" digital photography, but I later regretted selling my "Uzi." Still do. It was a cool camera.

Oops. I thought the 2.8 was constant. Hazy glow of memory, I guess

Wow! I was a newsstand buyer of Pop Photo for YEARS. After discovering back issues in my local library there was no question in my mind they were the preeminent source on photography and photographic equipment. Everything I bought was run by their reviews first. Of course that was a while back. Now I do most of my photography-related reading online, whether it's standalone photo websites or web-based corollaries to photography magazines. On that count, PopPhoto.com is a pretty awful site. Shutterbug's done a lot better job with their site, and of course, the British magazines are still out there. So long, PopPhoto.

For a while there, I saw this camera listed in the EXIF data for photos on some of the most heavily trafficked sites on the web. It was a real workhorse.

Gorgeous video, as is becoming the standard for you guys.

That's the one that caught my eye. Makes me wonder how it would work on a M43 camera from another manufacturer.

On article Throwback Thursday: Canon EOS D30 (138 comments in total)

I bought one secondhand in 2002-03 and years later the color of those files and the character of the images are my favorite of any Canon DSLR. I've owned or shot with the 30D, 60D and 70D, but the D30 is still a great camera.

On article Canon EOS M5: What you need to know (564 comments in total)

This a nice-looking, decently specified camera — that I wish Canon had offered three years ago! I'm interested, true, but I'd be MUCH more excited if they produced a X100-style version of their Canonet.

As far as classic film bodies that need to be "digitalized," I can't imagine how much money Canon's left on the table by not coming out with a proper digital version of their Canonets. Compact. Good, fast lenses. I covet my father's, but I wish I had a digital version of my own.

The digital Stylus cameras never matched the simple charms of their analog forefathers. Loved my Stylus Epic. Still have it. Took some of my all-time favorite photos with it. Gosh, I think there's a roll of film inside with a few unexposed frames on it!

Another fantastic video from you guys. I thought the Alaska one was my favorite but this one is right there alongside it.

In reply to:

l_d_allan: Wow, that was a fast, timely review of a recently announced camera. I can't recall a DPR full review being available so quickly after it was announced.

A nice feature that I don't think DPR mentioned: according to Bill Claff's Photons-to-photos website, the a6300 has the "Aptina Dual Base ISO" circuitry like the a7Rii (except 100/400 instead of 100/640)
http://www.photonstophotos.net/Charts/PDR.htm#Canon%20EOS%2080D,Nikon%20D7200,Sony%20ILCE-6000,Sony%20ILCE-6300,Sony%20ILCE-7RII

Yeah, funny how quickly they can produce a review when they want to.
— Signed, Dozens of cameras from other manufacturers DPReview has pretended don't even exist.

These videos are getting better and better. And the underwater footage from the Mark IV looks amazing.

One thing that people who say, "I never _________" (usually "shoot video") don't consider is that even if you never or even rarely use a certain feature of a camera, you want it to be a good implantation of it if you ever DO need to use it.

I don't shoot a lot of video but if I'm ever asked to, I want to have a camera that CAN shoot video and will shoot GOOD QUALITY.

I wonder if these same people are okay using Picasa because they "never" use most of the features in Photoshop or Lightroom?
