On article Sony Alpha 7R II: Real-world ISO invariance study (370 comments in total)
In reply to:

FantasticMrFox: Is there a special reason DPR keeps publishing separate 'studies' of ISO invariance, AF capabilities etc. for one specific camera?

Because it is nice to see this information now instead of needing to wait for the entire review to be complete.

What is the most ISO invariant camera Dpreview has tested so far?

On article Crazy 8: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 sample gallery (115 comments in total)

The GX8 is a nice camera. I just find it hard to overlook the fixed lens offerings from Sony at the moment when the price of cameras like the GX8 is so high.

I can buy a GH4 for the price that Amazon lists the GX8 at right now. That decision is a no brainer.

I really like the new gallery. Now I can quickly scan through the photos to see what settings were used. I can skip right to the high ISO photos if that is all I am interested in.

This new gallery is a BIG improvement to the site. Job well done Dpreview!

This will start the decline of Samsung Smart phones. Better go buy some Apple stock while you can still afford it.

On article Samsung launches Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ (160 comments in total)

I was just telling someone the advantages of the Samsung phones over the iPhone last night. The two biggest reasons in my opinion were the replaceable battery and the mini-sd slot. Without those two things you might as well buy an iPhone. Samsung has lost their minds with these new phones. The "edge" feature is a gimmick no one wanted.

I will listen to what they have to say when the micro-SD card slot is added back.

The addition of RAW is a good thing. It still doesn’t make this a great camera though.

I just wish they would make a water proof camera with a 1” sensor and a smaller zoom range. I just need 20mm-50mm for underwater work. If it has an F2.0-F2.8 lens that would be perfect for my needs.

The video is cool but seriously why did they upload it at 320p to youtube? Can we at least get 720p?

This would be an amateur astronomer's dream until they saw the price.

It isn't perfect but it really is close to perfect for my needs.

On article Shooting with the Canon PowerShot G3 X (322 comments in total)

I understand why people still buy Canon DSLRs because they have so many Canon lenses that they don’t want to get rid of. However, I don’t understand buying a compact fixed lens camera from Canon when the competition is so obviously superior.

I am sure this is a fine camera. However, gaining the 400-600mm range is not worth giving up almost everything else that would make your picture quality and shooting experience better.

The one thing this camera has going for it is the Canon name. Otherwise it simply can’t match what everyone else offers.

Overall a decent set of images. I would have liked to see a few more pictures with people in it though since this camera has been marketed at the high resolution portrait photographer market.

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: I feel confident that the RX100 MKIV can do everything that the enthusiast user would ever want to do and probably just about everything that the pro-sumer user would want it to do. Some cameras may do specific things better but nothing does everything as well as this camera does.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this camera to virtually everyone. Even if you are a Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, Olympus, Fuji, Pentax….etc fanatic this camera would have to intrigue you.

If you need more reach then I am certain the RX10 MKII would probably fit your needs better.

The improvements in Auto ISO alone should get this camera the gold award. It will get it for a number of other reasons as well though.
