On article Nikon reshuffles management structure (234 comments in total)
In reply to:

tomjar: I know zero about corporate management and I know Nikon is involved in different areas of industry. I can only comment as a consumer of let's say cheaper "prosumer" cameras. I have been on a lookout for new cameras to replace my two Nikons, D5000 and P7700 (an exchangeable lens camera and one highly capable and versatile compact camera), since more than a year now. I don't have money to throw around and for trying out this and that. I would love to stay with Nikon since I don't like changing platforms if not necessary, but I don't think I will be buying another Nikon anytime soon. It will be a Panasonic mirrorless camera and a Canon compact instead, most likely and soon.

To me Nikon's decisions in the "prosumer" segment (except for the DSLRs) over the last years look like those of a headless chicken. South Park episode Margaritaville comes to mind...

There's a d5600 out for you to buy

In reply to:

Bambi24: The battery life on mirrorless remains poor imo.

M6 = 295 shots
T7i = 600 shots

Priced the same, same brand, yet the rebel offers over twice the battery life.

295 shots is not a lot.

That's what you get when the power sucking LCD is your viewfinder!

GabrielFFontes: Seriously, this format of review is the most confusing and unprofessional choice I've seen made by dpreview. Please revert back to the old style.

Ask for your membership fee back then.

Who doesn't use wireless headphones? It's 2017 not 1977!

Polaroid is just a brand name to license. I've seen Polaroid branded laptops!

On article 2017 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras $500-900 (546 comments in total)
In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: Just out of curiosity , why is the absence of a viewfinder on the $400 Canon M3 a drawback, while the absence of a viewinder on the $700 Canon M6 is a plus, since it keeps the body compact?

Because the cameras are from different dates with the EVF M5 in between them.

vesa1tahti: IQ is the most important thing in any camera. So, D5600 should be the real winner. Also other properties are more than enough for enthusiasts and entry-level professionals, too.

Live view and video autofocus mean a lot these days.

hansip87: A6000 really needs update though. it's getting old at this point. If only A6300 get dropped to A6000 price.. (but i don't want my A6300 resale value dropped too though :p)

An A6100 will be nice, with A6300 sensor and AF, but plastic body and no weather protection.

a6000 was replaced by the a6300 already

Dude, that's out of the price range of this group.

In reply to:

Dante Birchen: When you are going to buy this camera for dual pixel AF you might as well buy a EOS M5 or M6. DP AF is useless in OVF mode.

With the T7i you get both abilities. If you're into into mirrorless, get over yourself and go troll elsewhere.

In reply to:

Gesture: Good review just add links to fuller reviews of predecessor cameras for those who would like them. I think all the reviews just be streamlined some.

All new replacement models are incremental updates!

ottonis: Great article by DPR, thanks for sharing!
And a big LOL at those forum members who actually keep complaining about a photo gear website posting articles, tests and reviews on photo gear. Haha, humanity never fails to amaze me!

@ DPReview: Don't worry too much! Trolls have always been and will always be there. In the earlier days of the internet, about 15 years ago, there used to be a much higher signal to noise ratio at virtually any messaging board and forum because it's been the early adopters and smarter people in general who made use of this technology. Nowadays however, literally everyone has access to the internet, so people posting here do more closely resemble our entire society which consists of few geniuses and good people just as well as of plenty of seriously "strange" characters, to put it nicely.
Facebook is not the slightest bit better, since you have tons of fake profiles there that are posting fake stuff.

It's an opinion, not an article. Know the difference.

In reply to:

stevo23: If the numbers are right that Sony is now number 2, it's because they've earned it. This camera is evidence that they really want to be here as a force in this field. It's not perfect, but they're really making strides.

They are serious...if you are in New York or LA, where "they plan" to open pro support centers.

In reply to:

Triplet Perar: Half-fake news are even worse than fake news, and this is becoming too ridiculous. Sony a9 is just one big over-hyped clickbait, and users discover daily that the reality about this camera is quite different, wildly mixed results. That alone shows how amateurish and irresponsible company is Sony, and how naive people are. Compare that to companies who built their reputation on reliability, decades of great customer service, fine tuning, proven performance in all circumstances, and fair assessment of their products.

brendon, good luck with that attitude

In reply to:

Robemo: Why can't DPR just write one 'dynamic' article (an article that is updated when new or more info becomes available) like other sites do to keep it all coherent? In one coherent article you don't just focus on one super duper aspect or feature of the camera, but try to find balance between positives and negatives (yes, all cameras have weak spots and limitations..). It's rather confusing, and to some (many?) even quite irritating to read 10 or more articles just to get an overall impression of the real merrits/value of the camera.

No, "this one" is a $4500 video camera with a stills mode.
