Edmond Leung: It makes no sense for such test.
If you really need high end video, use Arri or Panavision.

Edmond is right, if you really new high-end video you won't use any Canon/Sony/Nikon for it. You simply rent a proper RED, Alexa or Genesis and you are set, but seems like all new "still" cameras has to be judge by its video capabilities...

In reply to:

Jonathan Brady: I hope people who refer to it as "5DC" or "5D Classic" get out of bed in the morning, walk toward the bathroom, and stub their toes on the door frame as they're going to pee. Every morning. Forever.

I simply call mine a 5Dinosaur... No more "classic" confussion.

In reply to:

fPrime: I'm currently on two week holiday in central China with only my 5Dc and a solo 35mm 1.4L Mark 1 lens. As others have already mentioned, the colors and tonality produced by the 5Dc's huge full frame pixels and strict legacy CFA are unmatched by today's high megapixel monsters. Add a classic lens like the 35L
Mk 1 and you return with vibrant images that are rich in three dimensionality. Wouldn't trade this combo for a 5DSr as I prefer the color of the 5Dc and frankly don't need more than 12 MP resolution!

I love my 5D with the 40mm pancake, but I wouldn't mind a proper 35L! expensive though...

I have mine in like-new condition (cost me $500) and I love the files it produces. I guess I will get a Mark IV in 2025 for the same 500 bucks :)

villagranvicent: what's the point of his collection? Does he have some historical pieces of photographic equipment or simply buys whatever crap he finds at the local flea market?

Cameras are made to be use, to create and capture moments. If you think they are pieces of art made to be seating on a shelf eating dust for eternity, good for you.

Chris Ludwig: Correct me if I’m wrong, but the a6300 has no 3.5” audio jack. That pretty much ruins it’s capability for video right there.

Headphone adapter... lens adapter... flash adapter... since like the magic word to use Sony is "adapter".

HeyItsJoel: A degree in Photography is like a degree in French Literature. Both useless.

No one needs to spend 80k to learn the fundamentals of photography, it would be interesting to know how many of the current top photographers either sports, fashion, documentary etc actually have a photography degree or they just became masters working on the field.

There is no headphone port on the a6300. That matters for people shooting video with audio.º

On article Photoshop CC 2015.5.1 available (89 comments in total)
In reply to:

Barry Bloom: I don't understand why every time there's a new Photoshop CC upgrade someone has to bring up the subscription service & how they use alternative products - we do not need to revisit this issue each & every time. If your are using Capture One and/ Affinity Photo (both are excellent programs) why do you feel compelled to post here? - there's an easy solution - use what you want & leave the Photoshop service to those who prefer it - leave us alone. Thank you

Many people use not only PS but other Adobe software like Illustrator. I pay $30 a month for both. 360 bucks buys you a few trips to the cinema.

On article Sony a7R II versus a7 II: Eight key differences (397 comments in total)
In reply to:

kadardr: For Sony it's time to admit that A7II is not competitive at the present price point of $1700. A7II has nothing to offer when compared to Nikon D750, Pentax K-1 or even Canon 6D. The price of A7II should be lowered to the level of A6300 ($1200-$1300) as it could be an entry point to FF domain, and thus a real FF alternative for A6300, and also opening up a new FF price band (where 6D and D610 should be actually).

This already ended. A mint A7 for 700 bucks and there are a few others in the same range, no so, they won't hold its value as good as an old 6D at all.

William Krusche: There used to be a time when we had to buy expensive magazines to keep up with the newest reviews. Now these reviews are free on sites like Dpreview. If Dpreview does indeed receive some extra 'advertising money' for posting articles like this one, then so they should. If amateurs like me don't need to go out and pay for overpriced magazines any more which were, by the way jam-packed with advertising, then you won't hear me complain.

@Eric Hensel

I remember when all the info I needed was found in my 3 favourite mags: Popular Photography, B&W magazine and Photo District News. probably half of the pages were ads and don't remember me complaining.

The 2014 Sony A7 that I have is losing value every day, you can find examples in mint condition for almost the same money you can get a 2005 Canon 5D (in the same mint condition), you are talking 600USD. I wanted to trade my A7 for a 6D but considering the Canon retains its value way better than Sony I won't se that happen.

starwolfy: They should come to Korea. People here leave their phone on the coffee shop tables while they go to the rest room. Amazing ;)

That's my next destination. After my last trip to Japan I felt in love with the far east... The order, the culture, everything is amazing!

osan: DSLR's suck and get stolen. He should have chosen mirrorless gear.

So what you are saying is the thieves had some kind of X-Ray device? The bag was stolen regardless its content.

In reply to:

villagranvicent: Suddenly eBay auctions from Brasil members will raise exponentially to the number of robberies. Pickpocket happens all the time there, in low season a friend of mine was robbed 4 times the same day by children younger than 12.

In Japan we left our camera bag in a train station, went back one hour later and it was safe and sound.

Many years ago I went to Hastings England one summer to study english, the day before the course was over, some thief stole my shiny new Hard Rock Cafe leather jacket (yes, including an assortment of pins) and guess were he was from? Mexico, just like me lol.
