If people are so bothered by a new, faster card format, they can always go buy a Sony Mavica and not have to worry so much.

"New cards mean you’ll need a new way to get data off the cards"

Wait, you can't just connect the camera to PC via usb?

Seems like most incredible tiny video camera. Clearly video-centric. So in that case, is this really the best form factor for video? They should determine what that is, and redesign the body.

While this may be important for both parties involved, I suggest it's irrelevant for the average amateur user. Any of the top mirrorless choices will get you the images and performance you need. It's only if there's a particular lens, peculiar feature, or physical design you prefer that only one camera has - then get that camera. Otherwise it doesn't matter.

On article What you need to know about the new Nikon Z5 (304 comments in total)

The problem here is that a 'downgrade' camera like this is presumably to be used for some years, for the average hobbyist. So what's $500 saved over all that time, for something you use often? Think of all the things you waste that sum of money on - meth and liquor being the two major ones for DPR readers - and just cut those out for a short period.

starbase218: I like that 24-50 except for the aperture. Wish they could have made it maybe an f/4.5 constant.

I'd like to see any mirrorless with approx 35-120, f/4 pancake zoom. This would make the ultimate large pocket camera.

ovrebekk: What blasphemy is this? Good samples photos??

The gallery implementation is only ok though. You should be able to view images fullscreen, alone. You have to open in a new tab then fullscreen the browser, which isn't good since you can't flip thru them then.

Beckler8: I have questions: is this thing superior in image quality to its top competition at 1/4 to 1/2 the price, or inferior? How about lens choice? Versatility? So in what ways would you say it's superior? Thanks.

@KAllen Wasn't even considering 'rangefinder'. That design became obsolete what, 50 years ago? But that was my question. If you consider that a superior feature overall, that's your choice.

It wouldn't be that hard to say a product is beating expectations as a way of increasing demand. It could even be true, too. Last time I checked, I was free to expect whatever I want, after all. I expect the sun to rise tomorrow. There, done. Easy. I expected something, just like that. I expect american presidents to have a non-zero IQ. See, an expectation can be wrong too. Easy also.

Well they move fast so he had to grabbit while he could.

With all the talk of animal AF, I was secretly hoping for a dedicated control: a dial with dog, cat, zebra, dinosaur, etc. symbols on it.

I was hoping for no article like this. What has millions of man hours spent speculating on unreleased products gotten us? Oh yeah, that number of wasted man hours, that's what. :D

Blockbuster is coming back, I know it, using these for 8K new releases. They will sell conversion kits so your old VCR can read these things - some soldering required.

Beckler8: Hoping the 'new' includes there being no rolling shutter effect with this new sensor!

It's actually always a problem unless there's virtually no movement - but then why shoot video. :) It's only not a problem if you don't know about it. Once you notice it you can't un-see it. :( 🏃‍♂️🎥

The other option if you're a vlogger, is to *not vlog* anymore since there's a good chance what you're doing is totally useless. :D
