On article Canon will add C-Log to the EOS 5D Mark IV for $99 (462 comments in total)

This one and the other news about FF cameras this week are very telling of the future of certain companies in the photography business.

chshooter: I had one back in the day but I exclusively saw it as a studio camera. The noise was just too much at everything but base ISO and the focusing coverage with only 9 or 11 points was pretty bad even back then. The fact that it totally missed out on the upcoming features like live-view and video was also a letdown.

It was the resolution king but pretty bad at everything else.

I have seen wonderful images taken with a900 and a850 cameras by capable photographers. Great IQ if handled properly.

The most joyful camera that I have had in my hands. A superb machine.

rsf3127: I do not understand the problem with battery life and weather sealing that DPReview audience mention with their Sony cameras.

I have just returned from a tropical country where I hiked many days in the cloud forest, sometimes under pouring rain, and also in dusty roads and sandy beaches. My A7 (original) performed flawlessly.

I was able to fire 900+ shots with one battery (and it is a pretty old one), many of them using the LA-EA4 and a heavy telephoto tamron lens with AF-S on all the time.

Not a glitch.

my defaults:

1. Airplane mode always.
2. Zero chimping, since you do not need that with an EVF.
3. AF-S.
4. Single shot.

I firmly believe that everyone who doubts that either do not own an A7 or use it recklessly. And A7II uses more power because of the IBIS.

Sergey Borachev: A simple question that I would have asked Sony: Why can't you make your cameras a little bigger to fix all the existing problems - heat, battery life (larger batteries), ergonomics, and better/more controls?

I prefer smaller sized cameras and carrying a spare battery in my pocket. This is why I still have the original A7.

On article Nikon D7500: Should I upgrade from my D7200? (262 comments in total)

In my book, it would actually be a downgrade.

Unless Nikon understands that DSLR is a half baked approach to picture taking and that it should have been already replaced by mirrorless if they had worked hard enough in the AF dept, sooner or later they will be behind other contenders like Fujifilm.

Hope they lower their prices for the regular sized films as the user base gets wider. This would be really good news.

With Windows 10 being so good, I am rethinking my opinion about my IMac.

On article Ming Thein joins Hasselblad as Chief of Strategy (346 comments in total)

Every company should be aiming at broadening its user base in Asian markets. They have the most dynamic economy and it will remain like that for decades to come.
Ming may help them.

Apart from the big investment needed, this adapter and a UWA T/S would deliver very interesting results with a MF body and that would appeal for some architecture and landscape photographers. Maybe renting this setup once in a while would be more cost effective.
Or maybe trying focus stacking with a wider native lens and doing some clever PP would deliver similar results...

It is not about sensor size. It is about IQ. And versatility.
Even if I love the hipster thing of this camera, the A7 is a much better device for half the price.
Take a look at the comparison gadget here in the DPreview. The difference is abysmal.

It is a nightmare to add an app to my A7. I prefer to shoot bracketed and merge afterwards with the software I already have.

On article Ask the staff: electronic or optical viewfinder? (891 comments in total)

If one day I can have zebra, focus peaking and magnification in an OVF, than I switch back to one. These are useful tools that speed the process of taking a picture and not a subjective matter like "the sensation of being there". That is said by someone who used some of the greatest OVFs in 35mm photography.

cirtapfotos: You know...I am going to pass on the Fuji GFX 50S and wait for the Fuji GFX 100S with Sony's 100MP. It will be announced in Dec/2017 or Early/2018. While I believe Fuji has a darn good camera here with the GFX 50S....I know the next model will be even better.

@teslacoil: Adox. Search google for it. See for yourself.

or the one after those, with 500 Mpx, the same resolution of 120 film

On article Nine tips to help you win at photography competitions (100 comments in total)

1. Use a wide angle.

2. Children or pups are very appealing.

3. Crank up the saturation and clarity, and open the shadows just enough to hide the noise.

4. If the subject is miserable, you get points.

Anything else will hardly pass the first draft.
