On article Hasselblad to announce 'game changer' next week (456 comments in total)

Hasselblad "abandoned its much-ridiculed attempt to sell 'luxury' versions of Sony-derived models."

Then a 'game changer' would be to take it the opposite direction: cheap versions of Sony! An A7 with a Styrofoam grip and Etch A Sketch screen, and the viewfinder is just a hole.

photogeek: There goes the MFT size/weight advantage. Do not want.

It's not the size that counts; it's how you use it!

On article Canon EOS 80D Field Test: Barney builds a boat (220 comments in total)

"Kiliii, on the other hand, wears a polar bear tooth around his neck, and killed his own trousers."

Meh. This is a camera website. We need articles on people who wear a SD card around their neck, and kill their own camera half case.

"it brings a whole new meaning to the term 'photo bomb.'"

That joke is the best thing to come out of this project!

cdembrey: Does Flagship stand for "a camera I wouldn't except as a gift??"

No, it stands for "A camera I wouldn't accept as a gift." The key to being a flagship is correct spelling.

So if I buy Canon, I'll get shots like that? Piece of cake!

noflashplease: Samyang makes the plunge to autofocus.... for the full frame mirrorless Sony A7 series? It goes to show that Canon and Nikon are badly behind in the mirrorless market and full frame is the new normal. Kudos to South Korean Samyang for bringing real competition to the Japanese lens manufacturers.

By choosing FE-mount, these new Samyang lenses will be more prominent and stand out as more desirable because there are few alternatives. If Samyang had gone with Canon or Nikon mounts, they'd face a lot more competition from the vast population of lenses already available.

On article Readers' Showcase: Phil Garcia (73 comments in total)

This excellent advice deserves repeating, and applies to anyone who ventures into the outdoors, not just photographers:

"Let the animal determine the distance, never follow it when it leaves and most importantly, as my friend Ester would say: 'Don't feed the foxes!' What that generally means is 'Don't interfere in the animal's life, just look at it.'"

Elandreth: So what you're saying is: if I buy a Nikon 5100, it will make me a better photographer?

I have to do it myself? Well then I guess my D5100 will be put away alongside my Shake Weight and Axe Body Spray.

On article DPReview is hiring! Software development manager (109 comments in total)
In reply to:

StrokerAce23: So I work on something that's critical to people in their day to day life (money) with millions of users. I've torn down a couple of huge applications and introduced and replaced several mobile apps. I was also a cold-calling sales guy for nearly a decade.

I've become pretty resilient over the years. Lots of rejection and accusations of conspiracy and calls for my job and/or head (for something like moving a button).

That's all to say I'm pretty sure I'd still be driven to drink if my fellow dpreview readers were my users. Talk about herding angry cats when it comes to developing a single experience for everybody. Good luck to the team and the sucker err.... highly qualified individual you find.

No need to use euphemisms any more Jeff; pot is perfectly legal now!

rsf3127: I am speechless about this mirrorless system.

And yet, you're still able to comment?

"...they also offer a twin head macro flash unit, which we think looks quite a bit like an alien on top of a camera."

I wonder if flash units made on other planets look like a human on top of a camera.

On article CP+ 2016: DPReview behind-the-scenes (37 comments in total)

What a brilliant idea by Canon to have gymnasts at their show stand! Much better than the usual pretty faces just standing around. It's relevant for the upcoming Olympics, and a great way to test some camera features!

Perfect for those who practice tantric photography.

After reading about all the gear at CP+, next to be cut in half is my bank account.

Elandreth: What a screwy lens!

I get nauseous every time I read the DPR comments section.

Creepy! The walls have eyes...
