Robert Schambach: Oh man, and I just bought a new lens, if only I had known.

Rob, you made my day ;-)

JRFlorendo: The noob disclaimer, we're "NOT pro sports photographers" ....Blah blah blah. What that practicality means, is that, they have no idea how to customize the complex AF system to fully take advantage of its potential that ONLY a Canon pro sport shooter have acquired from YEARS(not days) of field experience.

Despite that, they definitively concluded, "the Canon still can't match the Nikon's uncanny ability to track objects reliably and accurately as they progress across the frame while also coming toward or moving away from the camera."

Reviews between the two are coming in before DP, most including D5 users, have concluded X is still the superior pro sports camera due to its AF speed/in focus reliability and video. One reviewer suggest to take D5 at night indoor stadium venue, where lighting is flickering(off & on), 50%-30% of images will be dark. Canon wins at base iso(dr) and night venues(flicker mode), according to one reviewer.

Comments like these make you spring into action and do another product review for our lovely DP readers on back of this one with gusto, doesn't it Carey? ;-)

You disturbed the camera fanboys, now you have to deal with their condescending ways. Not a great position to be in.

In reply to:

MrTaikitso: Their phone cameras (I have a Note 4) are outstanding, and now, even in low light with the new S7. Advantages:

1. Longer battery life (being charging is less of a hassle)
2. Fit in your pocket!
3. Automatic uploading to the cloud (such as the awesome Google Photos), so you never really run out of capacity, unless shooting oodles of 4K.
4. Intuitive touch screen operation - pinch to zoom etc
5. Ability to Pause whilst recording video - something NO proper camera (inc my GX8) can offer. Really really useful if you are interviewing someone & they wish to cough, or there is a short break in a football game etc. You don't have to glue different parts of your video together later in an editor.
6. You can talk to people on it, play games, do work (in Google Docs etc)
7. Affordable upgrade path if you get it on contract

A few more iterations of phone cameras and they will equal today's APS-C.

Either way, great pity Samsung were unable to get the NX1 into more hands, awesome performance!

I want some of that stuff you're having...

In reply to:

Tiderace: ONLY 8 BIT 422 HDMI out folks and no LOG! wow! For me Canon shoots themselves in the foot with separating their DSLR cameras from their cinema line this way. We are BOTH high end professional photographers and videographers. We will NOT buy this camera for this reason. We absolutely love the dual pixel focusing and many aspects of Canon image quality but this is a show stopper for us with this camera. We await the 5D Mark IV and see how limited that one is. It may be time to move to Sony for us. We are seriously considering it.

We wants it. We needs it.

They stole it from us...our precious...

In reply to:

ozturert: For this mass and size, I'd want a 14mm f1.4. Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 seems to have better range. I know that there is a big difference between 18 and 14mm, on the other hand 20-35mm difference is also big.
Or how about a 12-18mm f2.0? Or...

Well "for this mass and size" you won't get 14mm f1.4, sorry.

Also, the Tokina 14-20mm is ultra-wide angle lens which Sigma 18-35mm isn't. Apples and oranges.

Eric Glam: Better to buy a Dic&Mic P303c. 175cm extended height, Carbon Fiber legs, ball head that's rated for up to 15Kg, and much more. $188 shipped.

Eric, obviously they didn't copy all of its features...

Yes, there are many Asian manufacturers using this design, but Benro was there first. Benro is also the largest of them all and has many of modern tripod patents and inventions signed to their name.
Some makers blatantly copied the design some with more success than others, but many licensed it from Benro.

That's a Benro Travel Angel II copy. Nothing less nothing more, sorry.

babola: Ergonomics taken a back seat this time?

Also, just how big does one's prism housing has to be...

Ah yes, extra space required for GPS makes sense.

As for the ergonomics, that would come down to personal taste. I have been long time Nikon SLR/DSLR user so for me personally Pentax handling and shape quirkiness doesn't work, sorry.

In reply to:

bgbs: at this price, this lens better take pictures while I sleep, otherwise no thank you. Besides what's been happening to Canon and Nikon lately? Is their business model to make poor photographers even poorer?

The focus has shifted from the struggling professional photogs onto enthusiasts with deeper pockets. It's been like that for some time now.

That's all it is.

On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 Review (1000 comments in total)
In reply to:

fotoinga: After many years of photography under my belt … I decided to add a smaller (which seemed like an excellent choice) camera to my professional collection … A new Panasonic Lumix DMC LX100 ..
Was really looking forward to this new compact camera .. something that I could carry easily & not be so obvious with my intentions ..
Now I find myself really disappointed that Panasonic's Instruction CD does not cover Apple Computer processing … This should have been disclosed ..
After trying several downloads I still came up with a big ZERO … to process my RAW images …
I did telephone Panasonic Customer Support twice & the 2nd time they just cut me off … I sure could use a magic solution … Most disappointed … inga ...

@srados

Ditto.

Sherlock74: The Ona bags are far more stylish.

Ona bags are nice indeed, but I believe in a different (much higher) price class.

In reply to:

justmeMN: A mirrorless camera in a camera bag isn't significantly more convenient than a small DSLR in a camera bag.

Somehow you managed to compare some of the smallest mirrorless with one of the largest DSLRs on the market. Nice try.

Try again.

Oh but where's the one in Multicam pattern for the Airsoft crowd?

LOL.

Nice bags, silly looking finishes, sorry.

"... he's even developed his own remote-controlled camera system for getting as close as you can with dangerous animals like rhinos, lions and… meerkats."

Wonder if this helped:
