Could it Eye-AF track Wilson if he were being passed around tho?

thenoilif: Not overly impressed given that the speed of those passes and the player are fairly pedestrian compared to what you see during a live game.

It's not like it's baseball, no one is trying to take anyone's head off with a pass... :P

FlyinDoc: The tracking looks like it's able to keep up with the fastest subjects so far, but it's a pity that didn't bother to replace that reflective dim lcd with a really bright oled that you could see easily in sunlight. Especially when you consider Sony introduced the world's first oled television!

While they were designing this flagship, no one thought the A99ii's fully articulating rear mechanism was a good idea?

Yes, the sensor readout is amazing and it proves mirrorless can do anything DSLRs can do, but to me it looks like the camera designers and engineers are living off the achievements of the sensor division and not pulling their own weight.

OLED wouldn't inherently be more visible, it would depend on the specific panel which might or might not be more power hungry, harder to calibrate, etc.

OLED does have one key advantage in the you can look at it with polarized sunglasses on without having it black out in either portrait or landscape (like LCDs which feature their own polarization, hence the side effect)... Same goes for EVFs, is the LCD too? I think the question of refresh rate comes up there (and small but high refresh rate OLED panels potentially not being available yet).

Olympus was using rear OLED screens at one point but stopped I think, they and Pana still seem to use OLED and LCD interchangeably on the EVF tho.

Arca45Swiss: DPReview is the new news aggregator. Zero info articles with links to other sites
I think the dilution is really hurting DPR

It does bury their excellent editorials, to an extent, at least on mobile view... I'm fine with the aggregating, but it should be sectioned off for those that really crave more general news.

RedFox88: Don't see any pics there. Post them in this article

Works just fine on Chrome on my Pixel running the latest version of Android... There's a slider atop the pic at the very beginning of the article and you can move it left/right to see the before and after.

BobT3218: Great bags. I would like to see camera bag manufacturers universally to have a tripod mount or better still, a removable tripod mount. I have a couple of great little camera bags that on impulse I paid quite bit for but if on the rare occasion I decide to got out with a tripod they are quite useless and I need my big old bag. Just saying.

Yeah I'm disappointed they didn't add some utility straps on the TurnStyle v2 for this... I understand it's tricky and wouldn't work well at all for large tripods, but for something 12" when folded and like 2lbs it'd be most welcome.

A couple adjustable straps at the top and bottom of the left side (when viewing the bags from the colored side) would do... That way the tripod remains on the bottom and out of the way when the bag swings forward.

Feels like my 10 would easily be sturdy enough for this... Since the ThinkTank rep seems interested in what other similar choices people are looking at - the Peak Sling has this and I'm seriously eyeing it tho I'll likely keep both if I were to get it.

What panties? I went commando today... I think you're missing the entire point of why the poster is being called out.

davids8560: Would it supersede a Terms of Service agreement at a web site that assumes copyright of any photos you upload?

TOS aren't law, so a valid proven copyright might. For years it's been commented on how many crazy things can be slipped into a software/service TOS which wouldn't hold up in court... 'Course you'd need to have the money to fight it out in court.

You do realize it's probably a PG-13 movie and a huge chunk of the audience for these things is well north of that right? Just because it's not your cup of tea doesn't make it kiddie fare, and I'm not sure why that even matters as far as design goes...

Everythingis1: I think that 42" might be a better size for productivity work with 8k resolution. At 32" I think the resolution mostly just makes pictures look a bit better.

Shoot, I feel like I wanna go 42" even "just" for 4K... I really don't wanna deal with scaling issues on old apps, ever... And I currently have just about as much desktop space spread out over 3x 1920x1200 24"-ers... Sometimes they're in PPP config, sometimes landscape.

Are you implying the target audience are merely kids? Surely geeks, enthusiasts, and comic book readers in particular appreciate good graphic design... There's Netflix TV tiles that look like they took more effort than this poster, hell there's 50+ comic book covers a month that look better put together.

I'm looking forward to the third Spidey reboot and the franchise finally being better integrated with the rest of the Marvel cinema universe, I think that makes me part of the target audience, and that poster still looks like amateur hour to me.

FYI, this page or it's link is is broken on mobile, spits out an error when tapping on it from the home page. Switch to desktop view and it works fine...

Anyway, I've been using a TurnStyle 10 for a few months with my M4/3 gear. I can easily fit my E-M5 II with a lens mounted, a GM1 with another 2" lens mounted, an additional 2-3 small lenses (if one is a pancake and the others are no larger than 2"-ish) OR one bigger lens like a 35-100 f2.8.

Works great, very comfortable, makes switching lenses and/or carrying two bodies pretty easy... Old versions are currently on sale btw, on Amazon and their site. They're like $20 less if you don't need that stabilizer waist strap, the old one just converts to a full on waist pack instead tho I've never worn it as such.

Great little bags (5 & 10 anyway), much less obtrusive than shoulder bags or full on backpacks, just wish it had external straps for hanging a tripod.
