Considering the implications, the message at the end of the video is rather limp to say the least.

PentUp: Sooo... basically now the entire DPR backdrop/background is a Nikon advert... influencing, much?

Why does it upset you that a brand other than the one you own, is reviewed positively? Seriously, what is it with this puerile brand loyalty of yours and so many others?

If Panasonic or Fujifilm or Canon or Pentax or whoever manage to produce a camera that tests better than the rest, isn't that a good thing? Doesn't it incrementally push the rest (including your favorite brand) to leapfrog them, and to produce something even better?

Grow up you silly children!

OhWeh: There is only one word to describe Mr. Tetsuros statement: arrogant.

Why? I don't think he said that full-frame is the only option for mirrorless. He just said that for Nikon, full-frame is the right way to go

vFunct: Companies should drop all mirrorless camera development, since mirrorless cameras are not useful. Real photographers only use dSLRs. Mirrorless cameras are for people that don't know how to take a good photo. The only thing these people do is type on message boards.

Remember, there is nothing a mirrorless can do that a dSLR can't do better.

Smile and wave folks. Just smile and wave. vFunct is deFunct

Bambi24: incredible lack of detail and oversharpened halos everywhere

Bambi, I think you do make a fair point about the sharpness and over-processing of these particular photos, but would it make you happy if Canon was the only brand of camera on the market? I'm really intrigued by blind brand loyalty, whether it's for Canon, Nikon, Apple, BMW, or Gucci. It seems to me to be rather short sighted at best.

Segaman: Who gives a damn apart from people that makes a living of talking about it.

So, Segaman, I take it you are a 6D II owner already. It's always hard to admit that you've bought a lemon.

Vacilando Productions: conclusion, you'd have to be a sucker to buy a canon in 2017.

Nah, all this tells us is that you'd have to be an idiot to buy a 6D II. Canon still makes a whole bunch of excellent cameras and lenses, but this one just shows that Canon too can make a lemon.

abi170845: Canon will kill off Sony Mirrorless and others in one clean swoop when Canon comes up with a mirrorless body that is compatible with all the EF lenses.

Yeh sure, they're definitely showing their technical superiority with the 6D II, aren't they.

Or you could just buy a camera

I don't regard the Leica, the RX10 or the FZ2500 as compact, so they didn't get my vote

I can never understand the presence of these things in an otherwise useful photographic website.

On article DPReview Asks: What was your first camera? (766 comments in total)

When I was eight years old, I was given a Kodak Instamatic 25, which, unsurprisingly, I found to be utterly useless for wildlife photography. I also experimented with an old, even at the time, Zeiss Ikon, which had been passed down the generations (I think it was my great-grandfather's). I still have it, and it still works. My first "real" camera was a Nikon FE. Needless to say, such a fine piece of equipment turned me into a bit of a Nikonophile.

Adam Sharp: Not as good as a Nikon 😜

Hmm, not so sure. If the MkIV doesn't outperform the D810 in just about every respect, with the possible exception of dynamic range, I'll be very surprised.

At least a hundred and eighty some of the passengers told the lawyers to bugger off and weasel money from other 'causes' other than a mistake gone wrong.
The world is full of these blood-sucking parasites and one of the severe causes for its demise, together with bankers and speculators, all blessed by greedy politicians.

On article Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D (807 comments in total)
In reply to:

StevenE: This thing is barely medium format. The sensor is only 22% wider than full frame.
For perspective, full frame is 62% wider than APS-C, and more than 100% as wider than MFT sensors.
Previous Hasselblads were 50% wider than full frame

But who cares whether the sensor size exactly matches some old film standard? Why should it? It is what the specs say it is, and I bet, in the right hands, it'll capture some really high quality images.

Well done Hasselblad, you've pulled yourselves out of the ditch that you threw yourselves into when you went down the path of buggering up some perfectly good Sonys.

art99: Does the world need another aps size sensor ?
Cannot Foveon make a real FF sensor with exceptional low light performance ? Like a sd quattro FF.

@HowaboutRAW - You're absolutely right. I got myself all muddled. I was actually thinking of the A7 cameras.

They are expensive, but I wonder if these Sigmas (which compete in the same class) will be any cheaper.

@deep7 & @Najinsky, for me, it's not just about capturing light, but more so about depth of field control. Sigma make some superb FF (yes, I know that's an arbitrary size, but it's bigger than APS-H) lenses, and I reckon a FF mirrorles Foveon to go with them would have got a lot of people excited.

These cameras are going to have a tough time competing with the Sony RX offerings simply because of their smaller sensors.

Good work Nikon! In the world of compacts there's no longer a space for anything other than premium quality. iPhones have taken over the "consumer" end of the market, and that's just fine.
