Tom Schum: Pretty good overview of the show, thanks for keeping it light but not too light.
Will we see a Sony trying to compete with Fuji and Hasselblad in the large format market?

"Remember that Fujifilm has been a big player in Medium Format since 1968, "
I was there -no, they weren't.

vFunct: The iPhone is best.

Android phones should be banned for being bad and trying to copy the iPhone all the time.

Apple is just too good, and they invented the smartphone industry.

Not to mention half the people here speak English as a second or third language -makes joking a tricky thing.

Indeed. Looks very interesting.

marc petzold: Hey Barney, you're just right! :-) as i said more than once before, i'd choose the M5 over any A6x00 or my NEX-6 from Design & Haptics, too.

And i still do have my 10D, 20D, 30D, 50D...besides the 5D....and it's equal with my Canon G5, and then there's my PowerShot S40, S50, S60 & S70...i've sold only the 40D some years ago...

And i must say, back into 1987...the EOS System really kicked a**, no other DSLR System was being that advanced back into this Day. I do have my EOS 650 & EOS 10, and both working like new, too.

Pentax MX was a wonderful camera.

Sorry Marc -didn't finish my thought. I'm lucky because I went straight from a Pentax ME-Super, to a sony NEX, with only a few cheap P&S's in between (I also took a number of years off. The point is I came into the Sony system with no pre-conceived ideas of modern camera interfaces...so I was able to adapt to the Sony easily. Cameras today are far more similar than different (compared to the cameras of the 50's and 60's) from a control-point view. For example, my mid-60's Miranda G had a shutter release on the front of the body, so you squeezed it between forefinger and thumb -a great idea that never caught on since real innovation was/is frowned upon.

This is why you don't like the Sony interface. I would argue there are *no* intuitive modern camera interfaces, and we tend to like the familiar.

DSPographer: Great video with an impressive camera.

I am surprised that there isn't a mono-red monitoring mode for the screen so you don't kill your night vision.

Just use your red-lensed spectacles...

Sugarsnapphotos: "It's not as tight as a 50, but not as wide as a 35, which ends up being an easily usable balance between the two."

It's a 30mm lens, so it's wider than 35mm.

It's an anti-equivalence post, after all.

Mrrowe8: For me while Ansel's images are beautiful ,for they have never been memorable , but they are beautiful ..However He and Steglitz are or where also everything that became wrong with Photography for a long period of time .. Robotic and stiff, much like what we see happening now in Digital .. I would rather see images from and hear about how Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evens ,Imogene Cunningham ,Margret Burke White or Diane Arbus ,Harry Callahan , or even Dwayne Michaels created images ,then hear people go on and on about a system that truthfully took the art out photography and created many mindless minions trying duplicate not be their our image maker ...before someone babbles about me coming back after learn somethings or anything like that .. I am 50 + been actively doing photography since 1983 and have a degree in it as well that I went back later in life and got from a top tier art school and taught photography at a college level for several years .. So what say I don't say lightly and do speak from knowing my topic and not talking out of my _____..

"However He and Steglitz are or where also everything that became wrong with Photography for a long period of time"
You know what they say about opinions -I have an art degree too, my friend, and I think you missed the boat, somewhere...

On article 6 tips for shooting fall color (80 comments in total)
In reply to:

Najinsky: Always wondered if Autumn was such a difficult word for our American cousins to use, why dont they simply call the other seasons, Cold, Grow and Hot?

""Spring" is just as silly of a term as "Fall". Both describe actions, "Spring of the Leaf and fall of the leaf". Autumn is based off the Autumnal Equinox," And the Equinox is a noun, just like "Fall" --as used in this case. While it may have been taken from a verb, originally, it's a noun here. BTW -how is the genesis of "fall" any sillier than "autumn"? That's an arbitrary aesthetic statement. Falling leaves VS equal nox (night).

mariuss: "4K recording is only possible in the highly inefficient Motion JPEG format, but according to Canon, this is deliberate, as it offers easy stills extraction from a 4K timeline"
Who is Canon to think what is best for us???
Next time when you take an interview from Canon, please tell them to make more marketing research. They should listen more carefully ... otherwise we will listen our heart but follow our mind ... buying more Sony :)

I think the idea is that they could have been a Burger joint, that serves seafood, too.

In reply to:

photoreddi: > In this article we've boiled down the new camera's key selling points.

It's a SLIDE SHOW, not an article. The way DPR's slide shows are implemented takes much more effort scrolling up and down each page to see the photo and all of the text. Turn your camera reviews into slide shows and the readers/viewers will be decimated.Funny thing, the text for slide #1 acknowledged that it was a slide show.

If you feel that it's necessary to keep using slide shows for the sake of advertising click-bait, at least make the text portion much shorter even if it requires more slides. Then at least it should be possible to only scroll horizontally through most of the slides without having to move the pages up and down before viewing the next slide. If I reduce the browser's font size enough to make the photo and text simultaneously visible without having to scroll up and down, the text would be too small to be legible.

What I needed to know wasn't enough to get me to advance beyond slide #1.

I take it y'all have forgotten the joy of print magazine reviews -where the lead review starting on page 32, would jump to page 78 in the middle, and sometimes back to pg 64, before it was done. I will take this format, any day.
