I've been on instagram since 2012 and use it daily. Sure it impacts me but I have better things to do than to whine about a change I have no control over. But hey you can cry over it all you want, doesn't make any difference in my life.

This camera is $2200 in Canada. That's only $200 less than the full frame Canon 6Dii and Pentax K1. Let that sink in for a second....

Usual snooze fest from Apple though it won't stop Apple fanboys from lusting over one.

Great work Fuji but why not give X100F owners the addition of 4K video since we know the camera is capable of it?

Delaying a camera no one is keen to buy won't really upset anyone. ;)

ybizzle: Consumer Reports needs to worry about its own relevancy in 2017. In the age of first hand consumer product reviews on Amazon, BestBuy and other retail sites, the days of Consumer Reports are numbered.

Google "microsoft surface long term review" and a few hits are bound to pop up. If that doesn't suffice, I guess pay for a CR subscription. ;)

julianstravels: Have been using CR for many years for everything from cars to computers. They are truly independent since they do not receive any corporate funding nor do they accept any advertising. In many ways this is perhaps one of the last best ways to gauge a product and have insight into testing methodology. They also purchase all the items they test. Compared to this web site for example, they are far more likely to be truly independent. If they say there's a problem with this device, I would trust their view.

You make it sound like CR is the be all, end all of product reviews. If you're happy with paying for reviews, that's great. The rest of us have been doing just fine using free review sites such as this one for our purchases.

The fact that CR is independent doesn't take away from the matter at hand. They are losing subscribers and their demographic is 60+. The 20-40yr olds are not going to consumer reports for their product reviews which means in time, CR is going to fade away into irrelevancy unless they change their business model.

@h2k

Maybe you missed the part where I said "Even if you don't have faith in that, you have tons of other free review sites that can inform you of the product."

But by all means, go to CR for all your reviews while they are in business. ;)

@DarnGoodPhotos

That's nonsense. How often do you rush to Consumer Reports before buying a camera for instance? You go to Amazon and look at the consumer ratings and that gives you an idea of what to expect from the product. Even if you don't have faith in that, you have tons of other free review sites that can inform you of the product.

Consumer Reports' subscriber base is dwindling and their demographic is 60+. The days of paying for reviews and recommendations were over 10yrs ago. Consumer Reports will be a thing of the past in a few years time.

Gabor Takacs: Dear Nikon,

WILL YOU release a firmware update for the D7200, too?

Yes, they call it the D7500.

ybizzle: Nikon is the only camera maker that announces the development of future models, instead of just announcing the camera itself when it's ready. In other news, Nikon announces the development of the D6, D510, etc etc. Shocking...

At the end of the day, we all know there will be successors to current camera models so why not just announce the camera when it's ready? This goes for all manufacturers.

On article Should I buy a Canon EOS 6D Mark II? (448 comments in total)
In reply to:

ybizzle: Two years ago I paid $1500 for a lightly used 7Dii. I wouldn't trade my 7Dii for any of the cameras listed here. The end to end AF point coverage, speed, durability, and the value far outweigh a flip screen and full frame sensor for me. I have used it for portraits, club photography and fast action. It is truly a remarkable camera for any type of photography!

I wouldn't do street photography with any dslr. That's why I have a Leica M and Fuji X100F. As for night shooting, I shoot club photography and for that you need a flash so I'm also covered there. Yes the low light capabilities can't match full frame but for my needs, it does the job.
