On article Review: Affinity Photo 1.5.2 for desktop (291 comments in total)
In reply to:

John McCormack: The cost is affordable, but I see no trial version on the Affinity site. It would be nice to try it out before investing. Maybe I missed it...

I downloaded the Windows 10 Trial version, but during the installation the install screen moved off the desktop where I could only see the right edge of the screen itself. It would not move back and I had to end the process with Task Manager. I restarted the install. It finished but now says "Your trial period has ended. Hope you enjoyed using Affinity." Hmmm. Guess I'll try contacting Affinity help - if there is one.

On article Domke F-803 and F-5XB review (73 comments in total)

My Domke F803 is 25+ years old and still going strong. I love it; it's been around the world at least twice. They sure have gone up in price though!

Very nice. There's also a similar video of Iceland by the same production co. Here's the link on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/208295513

On article Canon PowerShot G9 X II sample gallery (108 comments in total)

There's an error in the caption above where it states " 24-80mm equivalent." It should read "28-84mm" equivalent. Images look very good, especially the RAW output. I don't think you can get a smaller 1" sensor camera than this. The lens' range is a bit narrow, but still impressive.

In reply to:

sh10453: Hi BB,
Nice little camera, despite the short focal length.
In picture 5, what are the 2 black symbols between Auto and Program?
Thanks.

You can also combine the short videos from hybrid auto in the camera to "produce" a short video of the day's shooting.

No ND filter? Thank you Canon G7 X Mark II for including a three stop ND filter.

Ooops. I guess I missed those, Dan. Thanks for work you do.

On article Power Zoom: Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100/TZ100 Review (359 comments in total)

Hmmm? I like Panny cameras. Sure it's small and got lots of 4K bells and whistles but for stills my Olympus Stylus 1 with a 1/1.7 sensor looks as good or better in the Image Quality comparison. The Stylus 1 has a better EVF and a constant f/2.8 lens from 28-300mm. Thanks Olympus!

John McCormack: I assume the Nik collection of tools will not run as a standalone application, right?

I tried downloading the free Nik collection. After downloading I ran the install program and it just sat there and churned away for hours.
:(

thomas2279f: perfect now and b700 has raw and 4k which is good...

Nice specs., but DPR has the price wrong in the specs. listing. It should be $499, not $399.

Lee Jay: 24-200 is what I'm looking for, in the most compact body available.

Panasonic TZ/ZS100 has an EVF (albeit small), post focus, and a longer zoom.

Availability. DPR says May. B&H says March 15th.

Thanks for the review and the frank comments, which we don't often get from DPR. Your images look better than the earlier set.

Link | Posted on Feb 11, 2016 at 19:48 UTC as 61st comment

DPR needs to update the price for the X70, which apparently was incorrectly reported at the introduction as US$799. It's actually $699. Most online retailers (except Amazon) are reflecting this lower price.
