Excellent review. Both the strong and weak points addressed. I sure would like to have one especially for fast paced photography. Beautiful pictures.

It is a good review, without holding back or skimping over the shortcomings. These two cameras are hyped in their ability to handle fast moving subjects so that is exactly what the reviewer set out to test. A very good job, and one that typically separates the wheat from the chaff with regards to features and execution thereof. Props to the two authors. Honest and on point.

There is no mention as to whether this new iteration continues the water resistant rating/feature of predecessor. I sure hope it does.

Never saw the price listed. Why would anyone review a product and not indicate the price? The reviews on the main DP site are much better.

Simply excellent pictures, and the HD videos are superb. A great job putting this film together with some very interesting content. I agree that a few quick comments about where the camera really shined, and fell a bit short would have been good to include however, perhaps that info is best left for the full review. I was impressed with this video. It keeps your attention from start to finish.

Not small enough. I like the Sony RX1 and 100 because not only are they excellent, they are small enough for a jersey pocket. Once a camera is any larger, why not go full monty with a DSLR.

Very good. It is inspiring.

Very good "user" review. Even though preference plays a large role in camera and equipment selection, its always nice to read more detailed user experiences and likes/dislikes. Technical reviews can tell us a lot but, user reviews and field experiences do more to tell us about living with the camera. Good job Barney and the pictures are excellent.

On article In Fine Detail: Canon EOS 5DS / 5DS R In-Depth Review (739 comments in total)

This Canon is way too expensive for the deliverables it provides - as compared to the competition today. Giving it a silver award is a stretch, imho. I think it will be their next generation that gets them back in the top tier.

Neal Hood: Beautiful pictures....some even stunning. Sony should be ashamed for pricing the RX1 so high.

Ok, Ok, points taken. I have handled and taken pictures with the first gen R1 and thought it to be a superbly constructed and executed camera.

On article The travel photography of HDR guru Trey Ratcliff (235 comments in total)

I wouldn't call then too clinical, but perhaps a little too much post processing on otherwise excellent subject matter. and composures. Pictures are imminently enjoyable even though I wish for a bit more realistic touch to the color and light.

Nevertheless, my compliments to the photographer. I like these type sets.

On article Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV Review (1571 comments in total)

Good review and thorough. I have the original and have used it more than any other camera I own. Its just so easy to carry, pull out of the pocket or case and take the shot. In RAW with cropping I get extremely good pictures that certainly meet my criteria for good pics. I never really got this with the Canon S100. My fear is that I will drop it sooner or later. Carrying it while cycling is a risk (hence my reason to carry the S100 most of the time on the bike).

Too bad the price kept climbing with subsequent releases. $4 or 500 is plenty for this camera.

Cheney was a good VP, and contributed much in our fight against terror. Good pictures of a man on a mission.
