Coomer: Why are you comparing the Z5 to the a7 II which is a half decade old body made for a different market?

I like the attempt to compare lens as well, but the possibilities are probably quite large if you look beyond kit lenses?

I think I would rather take an extra battery if I need it, and have a smaller lighter camera when I don't. Unless the battery life is really short.

For viewfinder , do these mean the same thing, or is the first on a typo.

"0.75× (0.5× 35mm equiv.)" on spec page''

vs

,75 equiv on how it compares page

Marty4650: In terms of value, the same $997 could get you a much better Panasonic GX9 with 24-120mm equivalent lens. It just wouldn't be as small. And the GX9 would be much more versatile, since it can use any M4/3 lens.

So you end up paying a pretty high premium for a camera that is somewhat smaller.

When I bought the LX100 (1) , people said it had a better lens than the A6000, in fact people were saying a lens this bright on the G7 would cost just as much as this camera. So I agree what lens, and it is smaller.

I lost my LX100 so I might go with a GX9, or other camera to get a better viewfinder, and a different pocketable camera

In reply to:

Photato: DPR: "the Mark II doesn't stand apart from its competition in the way its predecessor did. "
I agree 100% with this conclusion.
I had high expectations for the Mark II, firmware functions wise.

However, I don't get the disgust about the EVF, it doesn't bother me, it is good enough to frame subjects.

I agree with this, if tearing isn't a problem isn't the resolution better than the RX100 VI2.7 vs 2.(3?), or at least bigger, higher magnification? .7 vs .59

I lost my LX100 years ago, so I can't do a direct comparison.

(EDIT and of course the Cannon doesn't have a EVF at all)

On article Inching forward? Canon PowerShot G5 X review posted (388 comments in total)

"For photographers who care about speed and ultimate image quality, the RX100 III is the way to go"

And yet using the camera compare the image quality rating are the same, though the RX gets a better score on optics so maybe that is where the difference is?

For all the comments on the viewfinder, the comparison gives the Cannon just a small bump there?

Do any of these have a really good viewfinder? Which is good for Macro?

Erk1024: First paragraph says "we couldn't pick just one, and our second choice..." Where's the first choice?! It used to be the Nikon D850 back when I read this article before.

THANKS for your insight.

Yes they did not replace the D850 with the Z7, but the reviews seem to indicate that with its mount that future versions of the camera might replace DSLRs?
Not sure if it can fix that problem or not, but I would assume so.

Maybe they decided not to recommend a camera that will be replaced (Z7?) with a different set of lenses?

mahsar: Why Nikon lost it´s positoin/status amoung landscape cameras in the first list?
I have never used Nikon. I just wonder what has happend?

Plus the verbiage is still there
'After lengthy discussions, we decided that we couldn't pick just one winner in this category, and our second recommendation - the Sony a7R III - should not be seen in any way as a 'second choice'. The a7R III doesn't have the awesome ISO 64 advantage of the Nikon D850, but it's a very appealing landscape camera for several reason'

Why does the compare mode not show the cameras that were compared in the review, like the Sony RX10III and the Panasonic FZ1000?

In reply to:

centerpunch: OK, experts, help me out with this one. Since the "best" superzooms are now big and expensive, wouldn't it be better to spend less and get, say, a Nikon D5600 and their 18-300 (27-450 equivalent) lens? That's kind of a $1350 APS-C superzoom- you'd never have to take that lens off. (Although compared to the Sony RX10 IV you'd have money left for a 35mm 1.8 lens for special occasions when you wanted to mess with swapping lenses.)

That looks like a good idea, you would have less reach and a bigger camera, though more wide angle.
I guess the weight reflects the weather sealing on the Sony but the Sony is still a bit less:

They clearly showed they did not feel the law applied to them and got what they deserved. I see this in Rainier all the time folks off trail for any reason, even after just being told why it is important ( I for one have spent time planting wild plants there).

On article Accessory Review: Peak Design Slide Camera Sling strap (147 comments in total)
In reply to:

Bill Ferris: I'm another Slide user, a Peak Design customer who invested in their 2013 Kickstarter campaign to fund the 2nd gen Capture Camera Clip. I've used PD products, including Slide, to carry camera gear through weeks and miles of rugged backcountry in Grand Canyon National Park and all I can say is: Peak Design products are the most thoughtfully, artfully and ingeniously designed kit I've ever used. The beauty of the Peak Design system is that it literally takes just a few seconds to go from securely carrying your camera over rugged terrain, to comfortably walking around with the camera by your side to locking your camera in place atop a tripod of a rock solid timed exposure. Without hesitation, I give Slide a 5-star rating. If I could give it 6 stars, I would...but that would kinda defeat the purpose of a 5-star system.

I looked at this, but I don't see any pictures of its use with a pack, if it tucks behind you would it hit the pack and vise a versa?

I did see a guy using strap to carry 2 camera while also having a day pack on. (He was on the paved walk way on the South rim), Some how it connected so not to swing, but disconnected easily to take a picture. That was sometime ago.

It looks like on their website they want you to use a quick release right on the shoulder or sternum strap (Capture Clip you mentioned) and a hood, and no strap, except maybe a hand strap?

I have only read about these, but like others said, it is so easy to disconnect, why store your camera and strap together in the first place?

On article Google launches Cardboard Camera VR app for Android (20 comments in total)

NYT VR uses this viewer for iPhone.

It seems more like 3D too me, though the NYT probably used something are than a smart phone. The interesting thing is it also lets you look up&down right or left. Plus because it magnifies the screen the picture is much larger than what you would expect on an iPhone. Does not work that well for those who wear glasses (do not fit) but I am nearsighted enough in one eye to use without my graded vision glasses.

I wanted to create some video of outdoor places, but the Google page seemed way too complicated, and it did not seem like you could use a simple camera. This still won't work for me, since I have an iPhone.

In reply to:

Timur Born: Still waiting for a tough camera with RAW files and as long a reach as possible.

Well it was in between, it could be submerged , even in a rapid (upside down in a kayak, carabined to my life jacket), just in or out zoomed, allot more than splash proof. The Olympus was splash proof, when I told their rep. what I wanted if for he told me to get the Pentax. I think you could take pictures underwater with (not too deep) just could not change zoom, had to do that above water.

Of course one could put a digital in a waterproof case I did that with a FUJI but it made the camera very big, and those custom solid cases are expensive. I dropped my camera soon afterwards so did not get to use it that much.

I had a film camera with zoom that pentax said was waterproof, even in whitewater and upside down in a kayak. They said just don't zoom it in and out underwater (wet is ok) because it would suck water right into the camera. It had an EVF , screen doesn't work for me with contacts in and needed bifocals.
