    In my opinion, great means best, not really good. But I can understand how others might interpret great as "great value".

    @leamik Well, the "sideways glance" at the 6dMk2, which DP used for the feature shot, puts all the artwork, name/logo, model info, in the unfortunate position of being hard to read. Not only that...

    The original 6D was a very nice camera, not a great camera, but very nice. It didn't push the envelope in terms of technology but it was well executed. The 6D Mark II is not a great camera either...

    I think the pace of innovation has been distorted by some of Canon's competition. I can appreciate the sheer brilliance of high DR sensors but I can also appreciate that the manufacture of high DR...

  • I see. It would have been beneficial for those of us not expecting the idea of zoom range, as opposed to focal length range, to have included the word "zoom" or the multiplier in the text. The...

    The non-joke answer is that there is a new review format. The idea is that many readers don't want to wade through a great deal of detail to reach the conclusion.

    It wasn't very nice to feature the product on its side. What was possibly intended to be artsy actually turned into a photo that puts the product in an unflattering pose.

    I'm pretty certain that the all-new 26MP sensor in the new 6D isn't manufactured "using their old process". For one thing its Dual Pixel design is different than the non-Dual Pixel chip.

    I'd bet...

    It's true that I don't have a lot of experience with mirrorless systems but who can own so many cameras. Haha On a serious note, have you read the reviews of Canon cameras with DPAF?

    The Canon M5,...

    "The 17mm tilt shift is so much nicer on the Sony with assist and peaking." That's what I'm talking about! You've found that assist and peaking make your photography better. Just the sort of use...

    @Michael1000 writes, "If you shoot 1080, it will look like a VHS tape in 10 years." This isn't true. Properly produced 1080 will look a lot better than VHS always. It won't degrade with time.

    I...

    It, the 6D Mark II, may be pathetic but the number, or percentage, of TVs shipping with 4K HDR has nothing to do with the number of TVs currently used that don't have 4K. Even in 4 years, the...

    I seen plenty of DPR reviews where a score of 80% is accompanied by a medal award. The silver awarded Canon M6 for one. The gold awarded Canon T7i for another.

    DPR admits that the 6D Mark II is a...

  • Commented on article Canon EOS 6D Mark II Review

    What we have here is a reluctance by DPR to call DPAF what it is. A game changer for video and live view shooters. Canon knows that DPAF sells more cameras than Nikon's dynamic range claims....

    SubTitle: "It’s worth not making the mistake of thinking that one brand must to offer a feature just because its rivals do."

    Remove the word "to".

  • @paulbysea: 'When is the USA going to enter into the 21st century and use metric measurements?'

    I hear Congress is taking this up in the fall. Should be any day now. Haha

  • Hey Barney - usually i don't react strongly to the occassional typo....but this time it appears in the lead sentance, lead slide! There's a random "a" floating between "of" and "the". If this has...

  • I don't believe National Geographic prints using typical screen printing. Im pretty certain they use roto graveur presses which have a cylinder and blade method as opposed to offset plates and...

  • I was going to post about the comment about Chinese R&D, but nevermind.
