Marty4650: I wonder if the "lack of seasonal sales" is just due to cameras becoming a specialty items for enthusiasts and no longer as a mass market gift item?

A while back, every Christmas tree would have a new camera under it, with a tag from Kodak reading "Open Me First."

Try a LONG TIME ago. Never heard of that before. So probably 30 or 40 years ago I'm guessing.

Dante Birchen: Companies have stopped huge price promotions, because they were just loosing money on them. So there were no great camera deals on Black Friday.

It looks like stores ordered fewer cameras so they'd maximize their profits. Sell what they have instead of have a bunch left over. That's been happening for normal products, clothes, etc. too. Get them while they are in stock because no restock!

Hugo808: Camera companies have had it easy for too long. Everyone used to upgrade their camera every year when a new one with an extra pixel was released, but we've wised up to that now. well, most of us. The metric enlargements still make some think that 50mp will be useful for what they do but we all know there's a limit and they won't have anything to tempt us with.

I just hope my Fuji is built to last so I don't have to replace it for a decade...

Every year? who was that? Only the low end dslr model got replaced yearly, aside from the P&S digicams.

Sean65: Many of the current crop of DSLR's a so solid a robust that you'd hardly ever be buying them on a regular basis. Even some of the busiest Pro's buying a Nikon D5 would expect a solid five years use out of it.

The d500 has edge to edge (horizontal) autofocus coverage using the mirror, and All Canon current model dslrs, except the 5Ds, has as good live view and video autofocus, if not better, as their mirrorless competition.

SimenO1: Its been like this for many years. Roughly every third system camera sold is mirrorless. Its a stable situation with small changes caused by new models, seasons and so on.

SLRs are much more "stable".

You can't.

mrcultureshock: How about the D500, Pentax K-1, E-M1 Mark II, 1dx mark ii, 5d mark iv, etc?!?!?! If you create a list of the best cameras you can buy, then you should list the best cameras that you can buy. Otherwise, quality this list or better, don't publish it.

Dude, it's holiday shopping and the cameras you listed are for high end enthusiasts and pros, not the masses that visit the site.

Thomas Kachadurian: The inclusion of the Canon M cameras is a joke. EOS M is a dead end until they start producing some lenses. Why would anyone recommend an ESO M when there's so many better mirrorless options, some cheaper, all equally good.

It almost seems like a consolation prize for Canon who have been struggling lately. And I'm a Canon guy.

Because for the average camera user, the M lenses are enough.

TonyPM: No Canon Eos 77d and a nikon d5600 on the list... Oh well.

Page 6? You must still be using a computer. No "pages" on mobile view. I've been mobile viewing on phone for 2 good years. No going back!

ovlov: Sounds like I upset dpreview by pointing out how many "shop now" links there are to Amazon under every one of these articles. LOL.

There's no subtle hint there... no none.

Apparently it's a highly sensitive topic and I'll be banned soon for commenting on it.

There were shop now links before they were bought

multisystem: So Canon is now the king of affordable cameras including mirrorless according to DPR. Nikon and Sony rule the high end. The only outliers are a video camera that happens to take stills (GH5) and a lifestyle camera (X100F).

Listing was alphabetical

James Larsen: All I want is to be able to direct message people from my computer. So annoying having to use crazy third party apps to do so! Just wish I could do it from my browser.

Computer? Who uses them anymore besides for work?!

dlinney: This would destroy the great thing about Instagram - you don’t get a feed full of retweeted/shared stuff originating from people and organisations you don’t have a relationship with. And I like that it’s my followers who see stuff I post not a whole bunch of unrelated users.

You can already see posts that people you follow, "heart".

princewolf: 1) Shoot a lot of pictures of baby relatives, etc
2) Wait and lay low until they get famous (don't bother to apply for copyright of your photo at that time)
3) When they get famous, sue them for copyright infringement
4) Be famous yourself by having your name printed all over digital media
5) Goto 1

How much money has she lost by not selling prints of him as a child? (Crickets)

Is she a real photographer or just someone who took photos (like most of the world) ?

thenoilif: I think some people need to become more familiar with how Social media sites like IG and FB make money. There aren’t people who make hundreds of thousands of dollars just because they have popular IG accounts. Every time someone is liked or followed they get money from advertisers. Days of photo studios in your home and generic family portraits with fake backdrops are long gone.

That's if they are promoting things for advertisers like clothes, drinks, locations. Don't see any of those in that child photo of him! 🤔😆👶😲

Was the photographer damaged by not being able to make money off this photo and what money did he make off it would be the questions to be answered. This lawsuit will be dismissed.

You'd be wrong. Sony hasn't made any market share gains in 10 years since buying Minolta
