Anything that keeps me from doing more PP is pretty good IMO...not necessarily my cup of tea, photography-wise but I get how this could be useful for some. If I was a portrait shooter, I'd probably put a shot or two in my shooting repertoire to show the customer.

just picked up the Nexus 6P since my G5 GPS is atrocious. Very happy with it...I wonder if I'd like this phone more ;)

Carlos Loff: Way to go Canon, I have always wondered, with so many people diving and having photography knowledge, why isn´t there in the market a digital Nikonos

Nikon went halfway with the AW1 :(

Pictures by Todd: I never ever post to dpreview although I've been an avid reader since the very beginning. Anyhow, I just wanted to chime in that I'm super impressed with this GX-85 and now have two that I use professionally along with my Omd-em5 mk2 and my Nikons. Yes the Nikons have some advantages in certain situations, but I'm thinking of selling my D4 bodies as they prett much stay relegated to ballast in my camera bag recently. Here's a link to the first wedding I brought the GX-85 on. I only shot jpegs on the camera since Lightroom couldn't yet convert the Raws, but it did a great job. Will be using them again tonight...

I really just want it for the 4K video with IS...already have the EM5 II...love it but 4K is pulling at my wallet ;)...your shots convince me that I'll use it for more than just video.

On article D500 owner formally accuses Nikon of false advertising (475 comments in total)
In reply to:

RickD: Nikon made an awesome camera. Their advertising has managed to focus attention away from this by highlighting a feature they haven't really implemented. Its entirely reasonable for consumers to expect "WiFi" on a newer and more expensive camera to work at least as well as on older and cheaper models. We shouldn't have to read the fine print. There should be truth in advertising. The best response from Nikon at this point would be to apologize and fix the WiFi.

to quote from above "The manual explains how to switch from Bluetooth to wifi (Page 354) on the smart device and also makes a reference on page 256 on how to upload over a network using the Wt-7. Page 354 tells what the snapbridge app can and cannot connect to as well..."

chile7236: It's a camera. Not a fraggin' wifi router. If you're upset about the technicalities of the wifi protocol and how you have to MAKE it work, sorry but pressing a mfg with legal action is kind of dramatic. I don't feel for the "plaintiff"...Nothing about my camera inventory is about wifi ...it's about photography...or rather, my attempt at it. Lack of wifi/touchscreens/video/or other doodads do nothing to detract from that experience.

yes, I do...and, technically, it does possess the wifi capability...it doesn't say it'll work with every OS/iOS...

In reply to:

MrWalrusGumboot: Maybe it's the way I'm interpreting it in the summary, but just wanted to be clear that 5-axis stabilization works in 4K video with any lens. Not just the Panasonic dual IS lenses.

I think it's a fair a balanced review based on my experience using it. The viewfinder is indeed the biggest let down, but I think it's priced accordingly. I'd expect weather sealing and a better viewfinder to drive the price up. Next G7/GX8?

I was assuming the IS works in 4K...I hope it does. Otherwise, my wait continues.

yes, this sounds like the camera I want for quick surf clips...love my EM5II but have been waiting for a 4K with stabilization....guess, I gotta save some $$$

bgbs: I'm glad to know my ancient D700 does just as good as the latest cameras. I have no reason to upgrade after looking at D500 and D5 images.

right tool for the right job. the D700 still produces quality images when the lighting is good enough...if something better is needed, so be it.

In reply to:

Erik Magnuson: Visual tracking and adjusting to minor changes in motion is more important with tighter framing (i.e. longer lenses). Shooting field sports with a 70-200mm zoom is certainly less challenging than say tracking a jet flyby at an airshow or bird in flight with tight framing. But until there are longer telephotos with fast focus in E-mount, perhaps it does not matter much.

I would have to disagree with shooting wide and then cropping in post. Seems counterintuitive. I'd rather get it right and not HAVE to crop.

In reply to:

krectus: Pretty shocked that a DSLR released in 2016 can't shoot 4k. Especially a camera aimed at videographers (with it's own special video zooming device!). Surely Canon, who seems to need to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 4K world has a reason to not do this. The camera is capable, it's a big selling feature if they did? Why?! Why wouldn't they do this!?! It's 2016. Every smartphone released this year can do it. It really bothers me, I can't figure this out.

won't sell a single one, eh?

DavidNJ100: Why would someone buy this over a Sony A6300? For video, the Sony wins hands down. For stills, it isn't clear.

24Mp with the kit lens is a joke. That less couldn't resolve half that resolution with a decent MTF.

just stop.

On article Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Review (864 comments in total)
In reply to:

chile7236: Had I not moved to dslr for my underwater shooting, I would've jumped all over this for underwater wide angle. The rx100 was already great at that...with the faster lens, rx100iii rivals most entry level DSLRs for underwater use. Better than all? Doubtful...but looking at pics ftom others already putting it underwater, it's a great choice...aside from the added expense of a quality housing :(

unfortunately, the RX100 is not so good for macro (on it's own) as compared to the Canon G series...use of diopters is necessary as the min focus distance remains unuseful for the lens by itself. using an external strobe with the RX100 MkI or MkIII will have to be done with Fiber Optic cable to trigger the strobe since there is no hot shoe to trigger electrically.
