Just browsed the Flickr site. Some really nice work there.

MILC man: five pages long so far, with no end in sight:

"R5 locking up!"

True. But you've got to admire the consistency.

Mlumiere: Why DPR refuses to provide examples of 8K frame capture? Have they really tested all the possibilities of the R5 ?

Isn't that what's shown here?

I hadn't planned on getting an upgrade, but since my carrier is offering a really good deal, well, why not. The better camera is nice, but not reason alone to upgrade.

corkymiller46: I’m surprised that the “monocular” aspect of this device is ignored here(although, admittedly, this is DP Review). But the idea of having a stabilized 8x telescope in the palm of your hand to “see” things far away is pretty impressive. It’s tiny, light weight, and capable of capturing & transferring to smartphone? That’s pretty good for $400. It would be awesome for $200.

MSRP is $299.

rmexpress22: Ew, 24p. The M50 is a mid-range M body so the specs are not surprising. The M5II is the one to watch for.

Maybe...if there ever is one.

Looks nice, but I can't get past that price. Sheesh...

JMD-70: Apple,...welcome to the 5G club! Finally!!

True, T-Mobile's 5G is actually slower than Verizon's LTE. And the faster 5G networks have little penetration into buildings. Nice to have, *if* you can find it. Nowhere near where I live yet, and no idea when it will get here. Not upgrading this year.

5G isn't important to me since I spend most of the time wifi connected. Even out of the home. Nice feature, but not a compelling reason to upgrade. For me, anyway.

NexUser: Did I understand right that the new IPhones don't include any charger or earphones???????

The include the charging cable, but not the USB charger itself. Like the Watch I just bought. USB chargers are so damned plentiful and cheap it's no big deal. But the headphones? Should've included them!

Kodak was a victim of some amazingly bad management. There's a story about a senior executive, maybe the CEO, saying "how can we stop this digital thing?" No idea if that's true, but sure sounds believable.

In reply to:

Marcus Sundman: I really love the form factor! The smaller the better! But this specific model has been crippled beyond reason. Old sensor with awful rolling shutter! Only 8 bit video! Old CPU and menus without touchscreen! Even worse IBIS than Sony's normal awful IBIS, and apparently without any roll compensation which is the only thing that is absolutely needed in IBIS since that's something lens OIS can't fix. Only 1 card slot, and no recording over USB. And it's nice that the lens is small, but 28 mm (which I suppose is like 30-31 mm with the 4K crop) is not nearly wide enough for vlogging, which it's supposedly meant for.
What! The! Heck! Sony?!?

@Sundman: Agreed, and I do. Right now my current cam, a Canon R, is just about right and is a very comfortable fit for me. My comment was made with only my wants and needs in mind.

Don't get me wrong, I like small and light, but hate living with cramped settings and buttons. As a former m4/3 shooter I tried a GM5 and, well, opted for a GH series over a GM.

mattinsoni: It's possible, just possible, that they won't sell a single unit of this camera.

[Every brand needs a DudCam in its range. It highlights how good the other models are.]

Full disclosure: I am a Sony user.

I think it will sell. And I think it will start the process of burying the smaller sensor format cams. Also, this is clearly a "gateway drug" to a FF system.

I like smaller as well, but not at the expense of ergonomics. This one looks really cramped, even for normal sized hands. Of course, I've never held one, so this comment is based on the photos of the body, and the assumption that the person holding it has "normal" size hands.

User1234567890: News today:

Canon is the only camera brand to remain working in Brazil.
Sony said today they are leaving and only PlayStation will be sold.
No more Alpha, Bravia or audio gear.

Many years ago we could choose between : Sony, Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, Olympus, Yashica , Samsung and I think Kyocera was here too .....

Is the market in Brazil that bad, or is there some other reason the other brands have abandoned it?

Looking forward to seeing this one. I didn't know Trump wouldn't let his photographer capture images inside the WH. That's a shame.

Tester_v: It is very sad!
An artist makes changes to a subject as he/she sees it not as it looks. It is called art but I guess, it is call "faking" now.

This has nothing to do with artists. And everything to do with hostile actors creating fakes for political purposes, or other.
