Ebrahim Saadawi: GoPro Zero gave us 1080p30p
GoPro Hero gave us much smaller size (and battery)
GoPro Hero2 gave us 4k@15p. 2.5K@30p
GoPro Hero3+ gave us a new higher sensitivity sensor and overal quality.
GoPro Hero4 gave us 4K@25p, 2.5K@60p
GoPro Hero5 gave us 2.5K 80p. LOG & Underwater housing built-in.

In my opinion, where go pro is headed should be first and foremost:

1-Increased battery life. Before anything.

2-Increase image quality. (Specially lowlight performance, better compression quality, less fuzziness and macroblocking specially since they offer a LOG gamma mode (protune) which delivers a lovely, lovely flat image with zero digital sharpening a very flat contrast but it needs a beefy codec/higher-bitrate to work well)

3-User intetface ON-camera with proper liveview

4-4K at 60p. Important as everone is demanding 4K AND Slowmotion for all aerial footage now but they don't understand it is only done using a few options cameras on the market, the 1DX-II -Huge drone and data manag.- or a higher end & even heavier cinema camera. (Until GH5 is in our hands at least).

you nailed it. i would be impressed if gopro can improve even on just #1 and #2.

miggylicious: Was there any improvement in image quality or low-light capability in GoPro5 vs GoPro4? Seems like they reused the same internals from the past decade.

*sigh* looks like you're missing the point

Good job to DPR. Excellent roundup. I would have also chosen the D750 as the winner here. It's simply a really good tried and tested all-around camera with a now affordable price-point. Value for money.

miggylicious: The is very sad news not just for Nikon owners but for all photographers as well. It looks like all the camera companies are affected... And I'm expecting camera sales to keep on falling drastically as the newer smart phones now have incredible image quality, improved low-light and manual mode capabilities, and are now able to reproduce impressively beautiful and natural-looking bokeh using advanced algorithms. Afterall, why bring a separate camera when the smartphone can already do it all (almost)?

VisualFX, have you seen the latest smartphones? I cannot tell if a shot was taken by a smartphone or by the latest full frame anymore. Sure, a big camera will have better DR and cleaner noise but most people will not actually be able to tell the difference anymore. Let's be realistic, the advantages of a smartphone now outweighs the advantages of a big camera for majority of the consumers.

DominicVII: Did they launch this camera just to torpedo the M5? Well done, Sony. Attack is the best defence

i agree with obelixcmm. the M5 simply can't match the 6500. the 6500 is trying to dethrone the xt-2 here.

esmoxd: At last I can retire my aging A900, this looks a clear improvement comparing it to the A99 version 2, the original A99 I felt wasn't a big enough improvement to justify an upgrade.

Agree. My A99 has too many quirks to get a high recommendation. It can get frustrating a lot of times.

Blayse: This is closer to what i had hoped for (unrealistically, I know) from the Canon 5D Mark IV.

I saw a lot of similar frustrated canon 5Dm4 comments here

In reply to:

AngularJS: Does this camera mean Sony gave up on the mirrorless AF abilities? What about all those fancy GM lenses for the E-mount now? Should we expect them for the A-mount anytime soon? It's kind of hard to make a decision when 2 FF mounts coexists from the same vendor...

Does anybody know how good is the new SLT? 1/2 of a stop off or did they improve it? What are the limitations of 12 fps?

No. E-mount is here to stay for a very very long time. Maybe the on-sensor AF is just not yet mature enough. There are rumors of an A9 though... maybe Sony can pull it off next year. For now, the A99m2 is looking very good.

JakeB: Can Sony NOT make an ugly camera?

Yeah, it's a tool, got it.

Will no doubt appeal to those with the souls of plumbers.

Don't know what you're talking about but It looks good to me

In reply to:

thx1138: Ok this might sound strange but I'd like to see how this stacks up against the Nikon D500 in a wildlife shootout. Similar pixel density, Nikon's AF is superb, so the Sony will have to deliver big time, but if it's competitive, there are lot's of other reasons I'd choose a FF over a cropper these days. Already use a 5DsR rather than 7DII and only really miss the speed, but 12fps makes that a moot point

if the AF can perform near the levels of 1DX2/D5/D500, then canikon could be in serious trouble. this A99m2 would be a very cheap sports/wildlife beast. im sure we're all very excited to see how camera will perform in the real world!

fatdeeman: Kudos Sony for keeping A mount alive even when people have been calling it dead for years, they could have let it slip away long ago. I'm sure it's a matter of time but it's admirable they have kept it going this long IMO.

agree. im actually surprised that so many people overjoyed to see this release. maybe the specs and feature-set are just that impressive.

69camaroSS: Funny how Canon can ignore a camera system for 4 years and nobody accuses them of abandoning the system, but Sony has to release a new camera every year or it gets accused of jumping ship.

69camaroSS nobody will accuse canon of abandoning their system because its the only system they have. but lets see if the mirrorless m5 can take off.

calmins: I own a FE90,the minimum aperture is F22,it is not good enough for some Dof,like shooting beatles,and Minimum aperture of FE50 MACRO is F16,will it have the same issue like my fe90?

Everythingis1 is right. Or you can use a smaller sensor camera. FF has thin DOF which is great for portraits but not for macro.

In reply to:

King of Song: Here's how it went for me....... First I read the headline... Canon introduces the 5D mk IV... I got a rush of excitement! Then I saw the first photos.... well.. I guess the name badge is new? Then I read the specs.... blah, blah, blahhhh! Canon has become an evolutionary company. This is not the same mindset existed 10 years ago, when they created the original 5D. Of course this new model has a multitude of small improvements over the 2012 mk III, but it's not impressive enough for me to buy it, Canon used to impress the hell out of me on a regular basis with amazing innovations, now they bore me on a permanent basis.

Canon has lost it's ability to dream. They are forcing me away as a customer with boring, mundane, non-innovative products.

I feel like a fool for waiting 4 years for this.....

The main attraction of Canon would be their ergonomics and the huge selection of glass. I think Canon might have made a more positive impact if they released a pro-level dslr with the size of the 100D. And it would be really amazing if they could take out the mirrorbox by relying completely on their dual pixel tech (if its mature enough).

In reply to:

malabito: I don't understand the criticism. This is an amazing camera for the price. Buy it with the 35mm 1.8 DX lens and you have a great machine for street and carrying around. 24mp and no Olpf. I had many expensive cameras, and never used most of the items the functionalities they come with. I just want aperture priority, auto iso, and manual functions. If you want more things pay more :)

The question I have is how reliable these cameras are.

Does the D3300 have auto-iso in aperture priority?

In reply to:

ksrk: This is not an upgrade. This is a ploy to increase revenue and profits from their entry level model. It's a matter of time that 3300 will be discontinued and stocks run out so entry level DSLR aspirants, and those who want to look like real photographers (don't know how many of them are around these days) will end up buying 3400 thus helping Nikon with more per unit revenue and profits.

The downside of this strategy is that the erstwhile mom and dads and wannabe photographers don't lust for entry level DSLRs these days and knowledgeable folks will not be impressed by this downgrade.

So more unit price, but much lower sales.

ksrk very well said! more unit price, but much lower sales... not really a good long term strategy for Nikon. Looks like they're also desperately trying to save money on development and production costs.
