On article DPReview Asks: What was your first camera? (766 comments in total)

Praktica 35mm body with East German glass. Not the best but got some good picks from it.

On article Throwback Thursday: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-R1 (221 comments in total)

With respect to Sony and those who owned this camera....NEVER LOOK BACK. The early days of digital all in ones are not something I would like to relive. They were hardly good enough to be something you keep for 10-20 years. Today's cams...well possibly 10 years.

Ps: ugh on memory sticks

Oh darn, where was this when I was younger and able to make use of it.

Could someone at DP explain the "Dynamic Range" setting in the menu. Why would this be a useful tool?

Rick Knepper: "why they didn't make a FF instead of this"

Just listened to a short DPR video interview with Toshihisa Iida, Fujifilm's General Manager of the Sales and Marketing Group, and he says Fugi felt like the gap between APS-C and FF is too narrow. They wanted to go after the "top, top resolution" .

Probably they don't want the scraps off the Canon Nikon table.

So then DP staff, what would the equivelent focal length of the three lenses be to ff?

iudex: I know I am risking critisizm from A-mount fans (all 5 of them :-)), but in my opinion SLT cameras are a compromise combining disadvantages of both SLR (size and weight) and mirrorless (few lenses, EVF). It´s like homo neanderthalensis, a dead end of evolution sentenced to extinct sooner or later.

Good points, Iudex

In reply to:

Dan DeLion: First rate review. It is interesting to note that the new Mark 4 is not as sharp as the two year old Nikon D750. If you doubt it, go to page 9 of this review and compare the two cameras.

Timbukto, I like your comparison to the "sound" of audio cables. You do a good job of pointing out the subjective quality of sharpness.

bildsee: The straight-out-of-the-camera JPGs are quite impressive while I don't like most of the ACR processed ones. Some wrongly exposed images have been rescued using ACR and some scenes with extreme contrast have been "adjusted" by ACR, which both are ok. But in general most ACR processed ones look flat to me. But maybe this is the current "highlight the shadows" fad, which I personally don't like in many cases.

Nevertheless, taking into account that these are "real world examples" rather than "real world test scenes" I think the images are still very helpful.
Thank's for the good piece of work.

Thanks naththo, but think you are responding to the wrong point. Point is DPP would probably yield better results yet the author refuses to show Canon at its best. jmo

Jylppy: And just why would I want to buy this?

Why would I want to invest a price of a pocket camera into an accessory that is 100% tied to one single handset model from one company? What if I my phone breaks and I want to buy different brand next or my phone? How does Moto guarantee that the next phone version is 100% compatible with accessories designed for this version? And the size of the accessory is the same or even bigger then similar pocket camera.

Fancy idea, but.

Good points

In reply to:

PhalaNik: There is no denying the fact Canon has made a major improvement here at last. That being said on closer inspection and some basic adjustments in ACR and a little bit of NR the 5Dsr holds up very well with its old tech sensor.

Even with a fairly heavy handed amount of NR and tiny bit of sharpening to compensate the detail in its output is deeply impressive. Resolution counts for a lot. All of this forum war mongering about DR never seems to take real world photography into consideration. Fact is that for normal output sizes you can adopt a heavier approach to NR with higher res files and still retain a high level detail. In reality people are making such a fuss about something that will not affect more than a handful of photos.

It is good to see Canon catching up on DR, if only to put an end to all the forum sniping and DXO measurebating on DR which has become so flippin' tiresome.

Indeed, that is the most desired outcome of this improvement.

BlueBomberTurbo: Welp, Canon's full frame DR has finally caught up to Sony's best.

Sony's best APS-C sensor.... -_____-

They think if they buy the cam highest rated by DPR that their images will somehow be better.

MarioV: The quality is excellent. I'd like this performance in a smaller form factor.. which will double the price. Cant win.

Eddie A, that last sentence doesn't make sense.

scottcraig: Hello there DP Review,

Must thou publish such an article with a poorly crafted header simply because of your own mid beliefs of what professional "Photographers" are looking for? Please don't get me wrong; it's not that you shouldn't voice your concerns following your tests. Rather that this article in particular could have and should have been titled with more consideration to what photographers are looking for. How about something like, "What we found on our Rolling Tests with the Canon 5D MK IV."

They never miss an opportunity to exploit a negative with Canon.

Zakzoezie: A lot of fuzz for a stills camera that was never intended to shoot pro 4K video ... Come on DPR guys, everybody knows already a long time the 5D series is intended to be a stills camera for both amateurs and pro's in the first place, while it allows you to shoot some simple video's now and then as a second and lowest priority. I would expect you DPR people to focus first on the main intend the "stills capabilities" of this camera and only later say something about the "video capabilities", which is btw clearly designed for shooting 1080p video (with new video AF capabilities) and not 4K. After knowing the 4K crop factor and 4K codec specs and lack of 4K HDMI out, I thought this should be clear for everybody immediately, no? So why wasting DPR time/resources to do silly 4K video tests first? I expect a review of the stills capabilities first, then the 1080p video capabilities and finally you can say a small word about the 4K stuff, in case you can still find something useful on that ...

Overexpose the weak spot while ignoring all the good things the system brings to the table. Repeat until Sony appears as the logical choice for the unwashed masses.

Just Ed: I see by the posts that nothing has changed with most of the "comments" participants. Haters gotta hate I guess!

Yeah. I've purchased three camera rated highly by DP review, only one was worth anything. Come to think of IT THAT ONE was their second choice rating wise, but worked well for me. It was a Nikon. The others were a different Nikon and a ridiculous Pentax DSLR....WHAT A PIECE OF.....
