On article 4 times when a Hail Mary might be the right move (100 comments in total)

Not for all examples but many would have possibly benefited from using a flippy-screen?

riknash: Can someone explain the little circle in the top left of the photo? How can everything else be wavy but it?

Oh , I get it now. It's a scanned image and the scanner was hit after it had scanned the crater, vibrated for a while causing the wavy pattern and then the vibration was absorbed and the waves diminished.

Enjoyed the video. Too bad drone laws in Canada are so draconian. Not allowed in National Parks, Provincial Parks, 9km of any type of airport/helicopter pad, people, structures.

clack: I no longer get crazy excited with new DPReview posts because today almost ALL photo review website articles are fantastic and can in reality, tell us anything we need to know. I do not see much in the future that will truly make me jump up and down and get crazy excited, like some posts used to do for me, but hey, you never know. Even so, if you want a real article, one that reads well and reads all the time and is a joy to scroll through there will never be a replacement for that feeling for many of us. But man, there are so many great photo review sites out there today.

To those who discount DPReview you should not until you try a nice current post with good content. It is capable of just about anything you may want to read sans criticism and biting the hands that it is fed by. Other than that DPReview illustrations have pleasing color, and pop and always bring a smile to my face ; )

Steve still gets excited and plugs the latest drone toy.

Like anyone who constantly plays with new cameras, it gets old when they all come with cup holders, uhmm I mean built-in stabilization and provide a well designed user interface.

There's some buildings to the right of the slide area that were spared. Any casualties?

I got distracted, never saw the photos and instead read an article about how Iceland is overrun by tourists. Never did see any photos. Guess I gotta go look again. Darned short attention span!

Why the need to use that external display recorder?

On article Canon will add C-Log to the EOS 5D Mark IV for $99 (464 comments in total)

My guess is the hardware is simply an aluminum heatsink to address the heat created processing, to weight the video as C-log.

On article The Sony a9 is a 24MP sports-shooting powerhouse (1905 comments in total)

What an exciting set of camera specs. Is it better than a D5 or 1DX II? Hope the review does a decent comparison with them along with illustrating how this body will exceed the C&N is all areas including durability. Does it have the weather sealing and built like a tank characteristics required to survive the outdoor lousy weather it needs to withstand?
I don't want to pay $6,000 CA for the body.
Battery life is still very diosappointing.

In reply to:

Manzur Fahim: I have updated the LR. Now everytime I want to edit a photo from LR to PS, it says PS needs new raw converter 9.10. Fine, downloaded and install that one too. But LR still doesn't see it and keep asking everytime I want to edit in PS from LR>edit in...

Uhmm, you're the public beta test of release code.

RyoHazuki224: Haha, I like the last message about their sensors being able to pave the way for a prosperous society.

The fate of the WORLD lies with Canon CMOS sensors, didn't you know??!??!?!

Dramatic CMOS video is dramatic!

The implication is that many applications which will advance our society are based upon having excellent artificial sight, like those in the medical field, or surveillance, military, automotive industries.

In reply to:

HB1969: I couldn't see the moonbow in this video, could anyone else?
Another thing: I was curious about the 250mp sensor... I wonder if it's worth combining the output of 4 colour pixels to gain a "single" true colour pixel. You would still end up with 62.5mp resolution but I wonder if the effect would be similar to the foveon sensor (different tech, I know)

Yup, I could see the moonbow. It's a video in near total darkness.

In reply to:

Playright: Was anyone else confused by the "Canon made pixels bigger to catch more light" and "Canon made pixels smaller to catch more resolution"?

Nope. Bigger pixels for light sensitivity, smaller pixels for more details.

On photo Leafless Tree. in the Supermoon! challenge (22 comments in total)
In reply to:

riknash: This photograph of the full moon is much like I also envisioned. The technical aspects to capture both the foreground tree and the moon in detailed focus using f/8 at 500mm on a 35 mm sensor according to my DOF calculator would require a distance from the tree of about 1000 meters. Perhaps one could get closer to the tree if they allowed the tree to be at the near focus point of 685 meters.

Assuming an uncropped frame, the minimum distance to get both the moon and the tree in focus with a 500mm lens on a 35 mm sensor at f/8, is well over 680 meters. Would the tree remain that size in the frame?

On article Serious spec: HTC 10 camera review (32 comments in total)

Have to wait until it's last year's model. $1300 for a phone is just too much. Comments here say the audio is great so a real definite plus, even if the photo capabilities are not quite as good as some. At least it's not exploding.
