MikeAmos: Looks like a plastic hunk of rubbish.

Seems a bit harsh.

Mariusz of PL: Damn it ! Canon releases by-products instead of something which is really innovative and a step forward. Now...we are looking forward to 77D.1 or 77D/1/2... etc

Maybe you could write Canon a letter and tell them to stop with their money-making ways, and become more like other camera companies.

What is it that Canon knows that DPR readers don't?

Oh, now I remember. How to run a camera company that actually makes money.

Gutsy move. Cut your losses, hunker down, regroup and move forward.

On article Study: people don't actually like looking at selfies (200 comments in total)

I think the label "selfie" might provide an indication as to who the primary target audience is.

hopefully they can also fix the high-pitched persistent whining sound that pervades the DPR comment sections.

Magnar W: Wow, many Canon people commenting here, just to convince others that their camera brand the best! Why? Are they worried about something, or do they just feel sorry for us who doesn't know better? :-)

It's not that we think Canon is the best, it's that we are tired of hearing from folks like you how awful our cameras are and how great Sony is. So as I said earlier, this is an interesting report. Maybe it will tone down the Canon bashing for a while.

Interesting report, and interesting how it doesn't exactly square with the dominant perspective among DPR commentators - that Sony is unstoppably ascendent and every other camera maker is toast. I guess us non-Sony fanboys can breath a sigh of relief that our brands will be around at least a little bit longer.

Main cautionary point - people shouldn't say dumb things in the background when filming is going on.

Also - Spoiler - No one gets consumed by lava in the video.

Thanks for the link. Fascinating reading. Not sure why people who will never even see a 1DXII feel compelled to weigh in, but whatever floats your boat, I guess.

mferencz: Sony eating the remains of Nikon and Canon. Give it another couple years. Personally, I'm not a fan of Sony, but they are the future king.

It's the Betamax of cameras!

It's a plot by a corporation to make money.

fiatLuxFoto: Sorry. These are way over priced for what they do. This being an industry where even the top 1% barely can make a living these guys want to charge over $500 and $700!
There is no rocket science in these adaptors and I will let free markets show that they are over priced.
Photography costs are ridiculous for an industry that pays virtually nothing and the technology is not that cutting edge anymore.

The invisible hand of the market is flipping you the bird.

Wonderful photography, inspiring story. I especially love the island/lake and stars image.

See, it's not just Canon that is patenting things.

Jeepers, the folks whose main form of recreational activity is disliking Canon are taking this pretty hard.
