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.

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)

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?

I keep telling myself that Fuji is making the camera I'm looking for (a digital Canonet), but US$800 for a camera without a viewfinder? That's going to be a tough sell.

Soft, noisy and poor color. What gives?

On article CP+ 2013: Interview with Canon's Masaya Maeda (490 comments in total)

As a longtime Canon user, these comments are very discouraging. Canon is like the tail trying to wag the dog (the market) and it's just not working. The EOS M is a flawed product and for Canon to base any type of market strategy on its sales is equally flawed.

The low-end of the point-and-shoot market will succumb to smartphones, but big-sensor compacts have a lot of life left in them. As long as they aren't slow as molasses. As long as they aren't as big as entry-level SLRs.

Like Vartkes, I have a Sony RX100 (I passed on the M and the G1 X) and it's a marvel. The last time I even touched my Canon SLRs was to make sure they were secure in the camera bags I'd placed them in before putting them in my closet.

In reply to:

looker: And by "mirrorless", you mean point and shoot? I'm scanning through pages and pages here on DP, trying to find out what the difference between "mirrorless" and point and shoot is. Apparently, just a psychological marketing distinction based on a premium price.

The biggest differences are sensor size and the ability to switch lenses. The controls can be very P&S-like, but in my experience, the sensor makes for notable improvements in image quality, especially in low light.
