We've seen a spate of press releases trumpeting market share and ranking position in recent months. But, argues office curmudgeon Richard Butler, you should ignore them since they tell you very little – and less still that's useful.

As part of an update to our Buying Guides, we've crowned a new winner in the video category: the Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S. Its excellent video quality and extensive range of support features see it take top honors as we add the latest models to our guides.
Sony has announced the a7 III, a $2000 image-stabilized 24MP full frame mirrorless camera with many of the a7R III and a9's improvements. These include a BSI sensor, AF joystick, EyeAF and the longest battery life of any mirrorless camera.
Canon Europe has launched the EOS 4000D, a still more cut-down version of the EOS 2000D/T7. The entry-level model will launch for around £330/€380 body only, which is the lowest launch price of any DSLR we can remember.
A recent breakthrough means the future could include sensors that perfectly describe the light in the scene, offer new computational possibilities and give film-like latitude in the highlights. And yet we may never see them in cameras, says father of the CMOS sensor, Professor Eric Fossum.
With video-centric cameras like the Panasonic GH5S in the office, it seemed high time to learn how to shoot with a gimbal. After a struggle up the learning curve, DPR staffer has found some sort of equilibrium.
Shooting the GH5S side-by-side with the Sony a7S II we simply couldn't recreate some of the more optimistic claims made for the Panasonic camera. That said, here's why we think the GH5S is the most exciting video camera we've ever used.
