trungtran: Street price needs to be closer to $400 and this will really shake things up.
Smaller bodies will help as well.

The M6 is not small.
The CL is small.

panther fan: The XLR-K3M alone costs 600$, so it's cheaper than the A7S III

Put the evf on your math and it’s actually not that cheaper

Hopefully, Printique.com is still here for us.

pako: Can we now finally assume that no new A-mount camera will be introduce in the future?
Don't take me wrong: this adapter keep the A-mount alive, even if no new A-mount body will be developed.

optical viewfinder, by example.
And, with a bigger body, you can get better ergonomics and less heating issues,

Ziginox: These comments:
25% are people thanking Sony for finally releasing this
25% are confused about the lack of AF in video, or (rightly) annoyed with only the 6600 and 7RIV working with the screw-drive AF
50% are Nikon users begging for a similar thing so they can use AF-D lenses on their Z-mount bodies
(All are perfectly valid!)

We had the LA-EA1 to work with since day one, then the LA-EA2; LA-EA3 and LA-EA4 followed.
The LA-EA5 is just a better modern version.

On article DPReview TV: Leica M10-R review (105 comments in total)
In reply to:

if_then_else: Chris reviewing a 2020 BMW Z4: "Nice car, but the trunk is too small compared to a Ford F-150. There is really no reason to get a Z4'.

@Chris: I enjoy most of your reviews but please stop reviewing Leica gear. If you are not willing to use the optical viewfinder, than your review is like the sports car versus pickup example above. You dont need to love the Leicas. I would not buy a digital Leica myself, but at least I understand that not all tools are hammers just because I have some nails at hand.

Definitely, you don't use a rangefinder Leica the way you use your Rebel...

On article Best online printing services (140 comments in total)
In reply to:

photomikeleth: Seriously these are the BEST?????? You picked a select number of large discount printers and you labelled them as the "BEST ONLINE" what about many of the smaller labs that offer on-line printing. Many, if not most, smaller professional labs offer an on-line service and I bet their printing is far superior to any of the ones listed. My company does as well but nobody contacted me (of course I am not in the US and not a huge discount place). Really when smaller businesses need the money you promote the big multi-million dollar ones. Oh yah because they drop money in advertising or have more sway then the small companies.

Have you try their Fine Art Prints?

fferreres: I recently used Printique to design and print a hardcover photo book. It was a simple project and the end result was very positive. It had 59 pages and was 12.5".

nice photos, nice book. Congrats!

Magnar W: You don't need a slow camera to work slow.

You are right!

But, the text doesn't say he was working slow either.

Even if you meant "work slow" as a "mindful way to work", opposing a "machine-gun style", I find your comment unnecessary. And I think that, as a photographer myself, I need to defend a (good) comrade. Your comment sounds like (and that is just MY perception) "just another hipster".

Dave Burnett is a seventy-something years old working photographer that can shot with a wooden view camera if he wants. Working slow or fast doesn't really matters. He could be shooting with his iPhone and Hipstamatic app and the result will still be great!

I still remember the impact I had when I saw his photos of the 2012 London Olympics: https://www.davidburnett.com/gallery.html?gallery=London+2012+%2F+Olympics

But, hey! He doesn't need me to defend his work, or the way he do it.

Enjoy the rest of the day.

D7000ShooterUK: What an interesting camera! I would love to get a opportunity to use one of these! However, I am a firm believer in using the right tool for the job and this format is too slow and cumbersome for this job.

he also shoot with his iphone
is that fast enough for the job?

This is from Monday's parade in NYC. Processed by VIsta-CRC in NYC. I don;t know if Dave have someone in DC that can process his film that fast...

halfaman: Amazing that he is still doing this with 73 years, that is real passion. All those guys around him with DSLR's are doing pretty much the same photo, he tries to get something different. We need more David Burnetts in photojournalists, and I am not talking about film or LF cameras.

Photographers never retire...

I think Dave was working fast with a slow camera. That's the challenge.

HaroldC3: If you haven’t heard Helen Oster left Adorama. She was the ambassador of fixing issues. Helen detailed the poor treatment she experienced while she worked there as well as the lack of acknowledgement of her achievements and contributions when she left. Google her and you should find it. I will not be shopping Adorama again.

No Idea. I don't know Helen Oster. Nor her working conditions.
Probably she have ALSO good things to say about Adorama, or her former coworkers.

Well, if she left, most probably she doesn't have good things to say about her former employer.

Well, if she can live with that viewfinder...

Tazz93: Hmm... So they are selling a soft, optically simply, manual focus 85mm 1.8 for $20 - $100 more than better offerings from Canon and Nikon. I'm not sure who the target market is on this one. I could be wrong, but the sample shots don't terribly impress me (albeit not terrible either). Maybe there's more to it than than the 4 element design suggests.

As far as I know, nor Nikon or canon have a 85mm soft focus lens on their current line....
