The Davinator: And yet they can't figure out "landscape."

Their app is for on the go, mobile handheld devices which are held vertically. This just means you are too old.

Dave Oddie: It is a camera DPR can't help but like?

It was a big disappointment last week:

Do you ever read beyond the article title? I'm thinking no.

Silat Shooter: Have to say this is FUN!! Sony blindsided us with this and kept it under wraps unbelievably well till the first day of Photokina. Looks like an amazing camera! Can you smell rebates for the Canon 5D cameras? As a Canon shooter myself, I applaud Sony for 'bringing it' and giving the industry a camera that will create a lot of buzz.

Two thumbs up for not letting this leak early and for real excitement in a new product!

It will make existing sony shooters happy.

FantasticMrFox: And it's getting more and more DSLR like with every iteration - seems like it has slowly dawned on DSLM manufacturers that people actually want to be able to hold a camera without getting cramps in their hands, and that requires a certain size and decent ergonomics.

So what was the point of mirrorless again?!

No not small lenses. Lens size goes with the size if the image sensor. Isn't there now a medium format mirrorless cam?

Error: dual pixel was launched in the 70D not the 7D2.

ovatab: The dam fishermen are awesome!

Those aren't stars. It was high iso + flash while it was raining. The "stars" are raindrops reflected off the flash. The upper left corner of the photo is a rock formation not stars.

steven8217: On Fisherman on the Dam, I wonder why there are light reflections on the water when the light source (perhaps street light?) are behind the dam? Unless the light source are right on top of the dam?
An interesting light source that can illuminate the face of all 3 fisherman?
Also interesting for all 3 fisherman to spread their leg that far apart at the same time in normal walking posture?
Is there an additional layer of texture on the upper part of the photo?
Overall it seems like a stage outdoor type of stage <studio light> shot.

Either way it was very staged and very stale looking.

Auricom: Then ...

...Fujifilm rolls out their Medium Format Camera & Sony with their BEAST(a99 mkii) at photokina 2016, which is just around the corner, to make this already obsolete Canon even more of a joke.

You realize the a99 is an SLT camera, right? With mirror.

MrTaikitso: Lack of 4K is a disaster. Many aspects of Canon and Nikon products show that hey are stuck in the dark ages, no matter the quality of their glass or sensors. Not one camera even has a USB-C port, so one can charge one's camera with the same charger as recent phones and the MacBook (and late 2016 MacBook Pros).

You sound like trump.

In reply to:

ProfHankD: The M5 really seems like a Canon-flavored answer to the A6000 in an A7-ish body ( http://camerasize.com/compare/#684,487 )... overall trailing Sony by about 3 years. However, with the much improved IQ of the M5's not-quite-APS-C (1.6X crop) sensor, Canon has probably crossed the threshold where it is good enough to keep lots of folks from "jumping ship" to Sony mirrorless... especially if they want to continue to use their EF/EF-S lenses. Current Canon users might not even buy that many M5, but the mere suggestion that Canon is now serious about mirrorless is enough to make lots of folks hesitant about switching brands....

Personally, I'll buy one iff either (1) they support dual-pixel (48MP) raw or (2) there is a port of Magic Lantern to it. Magic Lantern is why I own an M... sensor IQ and ease of use with manual lenses is why I own a bunch of Sonys. ;-)

Dual pixel does not mean double the pixel count in recorded pixels. The "other" pixel is for focusing.

MikeFairbanks: Seems kind of expensive for a crop sensor, and the size isn't that much smaller than a Rebel. I had the original EOS-M and liked it, but I eventually went back to DSLR because it's still much faster than any Canon mirrorless, and is a dream on battery usage. My 6D with a 40mm pancake is full frame and can fit in a large cargo pocket in my shorts for concerts, etc. And it will pass a thousand shots on a full charge.

It's priced lower than its competitors.

caravan: Will they ever have the courage to remove the fake prisum hump?

Dude, that's the evf. Don't want the hump? Get the M3 without evf.

Halina123: Canon's latest attempt to match the Nikon 1 series. Which beat the $€£ t out of the M1 M2 M3 and M10, because the Nikons can actually focus in real time and get sharp images.

Nikon 1 is all discontinued.

Archer66: "Built-in high-resolution EVF (approx. 2,360,000 dots) with new Touch and Drag AF lets you manually move the AF frame displayed for more precise focusing in different shooting situations."

Hope users won't poke their eye while focusing.

Use the lcd for that not evf.

In reply to:

Catalin Stavaru: This camera is great specs-wise, but it is almost identical in size to the Canon SL1, which has some compact lenses that can be used with it too. They took out the pentaprism and OVF, and added an expensive EVF which increased the price by about $300. And this just to capitalize on the word "mirrorless".

Hopefully an ultra-compact M50 with no EVF and the same internals is on the way. That's what I would buy.

SL1 doesn't have dual pixel af nor does 7 fps. You get what you pay for.

In reply to:

JackM: Personally if I am going mirrorless, I want maximum portability and discreetness. Mirrorless cameras with the hump for the EVF just turn me right off. The motion of putting a camera to your eye alerts everyone around you "hey, I'm taking a picture now!" So it's not a camera for me, but I guess I could see people weighing this against a Rebel.

Try composing and adjusting exposure compensation on the lcd in bright sunlight. Ya.
