This is a HTC phone with the name Google on the back, right? Google doesn't make phones.

crashpc: Ok Canon, Lower your weapon! errr, I meant, PRICE! :-)

You mean raise? 80D is $200 less already!

$1400?! So much for "cheap" mirrorless /evil cams. $200 MORE than the 80D!

Dimit: The most popular cellphone in the world is Samsung Galaxy,not i-phone.Profoundly,same applies to the respective camera. Period.

No, you got that wrong. Samsung sells the most smart phones but they sell several /many models. Iphone is the best selling model, always.

Robert Zanatta: The Nokia phones are still impressive.

The Galaxy S7 has noticeably better IQ.

photomedium: WOW galaxy s7, come here baby!

Samsung smears detail. Plus you got the buggy android power hog. No thanks. Been there done with that.

Timbukto: This is why I feel the iPhone optics are so subpar, this is what my personal S6 can do in RAW - https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/58428407
That is 16MP at a demanding 16x9 aspect ratio. I've honestly shot softer MFT kit lenses before at wide angle wide open. This is what I find so 'grating' about the recent iPhone praise and its ability to shoot RAW. I am getting RAW update for free on an old phone with what easily looks to be superior optics, proof in the pudding.

Samsung smears detail. Yuck. Apple knows how to balance detail with grain.

avatar77: I'd like to see the Galaxy Note 7 results. Perhaps the exploding battery will help it ace the low-light test?

Note 7..You mean one that HASN'T burned up ? And is note 7. Nobody calls their stuff galaxy. That's been a failed marketing attempt by samsung. It's just note 7 or s7.

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.

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?

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.
