Sigma already has a couple something-500 or 600. Don't see the point of this one then!

My iPhone 7+ does bokeh now too. No need to spend hundreds on just a lens!

Bolbi: Windows 10 has had facial recognition since it came out and Windows 10 Mobile has had iris recognition soon after it came out. While facial recognition is interesting for a device that you walk up to, when taking something out of your pocket it is much faster to unlock a phone using fingerprint recognition. You'll probably have it unlocked before you see the screen. I'd only use this as a supplemental authentication method when the device is already unlocked and you're already looking at it. It wouldn't even count as multi-factor authentication as TouchID and this would the same factor (something you are)..

Nobody uses windows mobile LOL!

On article Archos to make Kodak-branded Android tablets (142 comments in total)
In reply to:

sirhawkeye64: The tablet market is so mature now that any new entrants would have so little market share. Apple owns a decent amount and so does Sony and Microsoft. It will be hard to beat those three competitors IMO. Besides, there are so many Android tablet brands on the market now it almost seems pointless to even care what brand it is (although I'm a fan of Samsung so I'd go Samsung). Unless Kodak has anything new to bring to the table, like attachable lenses for its tablet camera, I really don't see this making any big dent in the market. I think it's more just Kodak is struggling since its core business died off years ago (film) and it's trying to adapt itself to survive. It's line of Digital cameras are on the "Bargain" side of things (I don't think they make any professional level digital cameras/DSLRs). Maybe they should look into creating a mirrorless camera than working on an Android tablet.

Sony? Never heard of a sony tablet. Apple and Samsung own the tablet market.

In reply to:

fatdeeman: At least the liveview burst rate has been increased over the 80D which is handy considering these cameras now track better in liveview mode than they do through the ovf..

Shame that rear dial is so tiny though, it's nice that it has one at all I guess but even the 60d gad nice largish one.

Dude, 60D was long ago replaced!

Fujica: Apparently DSLR doesn't need to be huge bricks, but I am thinking its too late for the DSLR to make a return.

I'll think we will still see a decline in sales of DSLR volumes over the longer term and a small but steady growth of the MILC systems.

Return ? They never left!

In reply to:

Ross the Fidller: What do you mean "The Canon EOS Rebel T7i (800D in some regions)"? It's 800D everywhere else in the world besides America! Only in America would the naming 'Rebel T7i' be understood.

Because the majority of DPR readers are US....and it's EOS Kiss (something ) in Japan

In reply to:

Boissez: I am liking this move towards smaller and lighter DSLRs. The fact that Canon could trim 40 % of the 80Ds weight, without losing any features shows just how bloated DSLRs have become.

Now please do the same with your lenses and full-frame lineup.

There's a reason why the phrase bigger is better stays true.

No 80D is 5 fps live view

Aroart: Wow ... I would be upset if I bought that 80d for Christmas right now.. Shame on you.. Glad I decided on the Fuji XT2..

You clearly don't realize what differences the 80D has and bigger ovf is a big point.

In reply to:

Autriche78: Good for Canon, but can someone explain why every manufacturer seems to desire to confuse the consumer with model numbers that bear no obvious relation to hierarchy within a system? So this is below the 5 but above the 3 - and labelled as #6. Seriously...

Dude, Canon is Japanese not Chinese

sh10453: Question to Canon or DPR staffs:
What is the difference (in optics) between this lens and the EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III?
$550 as opposed to $200.
I know this one uses a USM motor (as opposed to the DC motor in the other one), and this one has the added IS.
Thanks.

You're unlikely to find DPR staff commenting on the quality difference between products not in a review. Keep waiting....

The 75-300 usm III should be discontinued as it's essentially been replaced by the ef-s 55-250. The aforementioned 75-300 $200 lens is junk, so soft beyond 200mm.

And a 70-200 lens is smaller?!
