Retzius: If a person is having a negative experience on Instagram or Facebook can't an individual just not log on or create a new account that blocks who is allowed to post? I don't understand why a person would keep using a particular social media app if they felt they were getting bullied...

@Retzius. It's Not Easy for young people to quit Social Media because (1) ALL 100% of their friends are online with different S.M. (2) it's their main way of getting Party Invitation to any social events (3) it's where young people meet other young people (4) it's also where they receive their daily news & gossips (5) it's how they defined themselves as "YOUNG, and us (not active on S.M.) as OLD, lastly this is sadly (6) Where & How Young peole can BRAG to one another about their achievements.
Watch the Video, I really like the scene where the Young Man (DRIVE A CAR) to the mountains top, then snap a photo of himself in Biker Wears, claiming he just finished his 30 miles daily ride. Classic!

Great Video, it shows the difference between Creating a "Persona" vs being oneself.

On article Panasonic Leica DG 15mm F1.7 shooting experience (363 comments in total)

Keep in mind that 30mm on (Tight Squarish 4:3 Ratio) produce (Horizontal Field-of-View) similar to a (35mm 3:2 ratio FF). I ♡ my PL 15/1.7 because it feel very natural & similar to my old Canon 35/1.4 L. It is slightly wider, more like a 32mm - 33mm lens. It's important to keep the 4:3 vs 3:2 ratio in mind when buying M43. For example, I love traditional 50mm FF, but 25mm (M43) feel Cramp, Restrictive, and Unnatural to me. Then I realized this is because 4:3 ratio has less (horizontal angle of view) than I was accustomed to on traditional 3:2 camera. In my own mirrorless transition, I discover Panason 20/1.7 feel much more like a Natural 50mm FF, and Panasonic Leica 15mm /1.7 feel like a natural 35mm FF.

007peter: Oh NO, I need to find another free photo host for eBay. Any suggestions?

@Suave. Many eBay seller like me (not only directly upload to eBay) but also use PhotoBucket to link an HUGE photograph of product we're selling. The included photo from eBay is rather sized restrained. Nothing like a Full Screen Photograph of the product you're selling. That is how I sell my gears at premium price because People can see the condition of my camera and lens in much greater details than eBay is providing.

retr01976: So what is the point of the M series existence with a product like this ?

@AbrasiveReducer. Keep in mind that Asian buying mirrorless argument also apply to SL1 (100d) and SL2 (200d). As Asian myself, I can tell you that "Any" Tiny White Camera sells really good here. Since SL2 (200d) is offering in White/Silver/Black, it will probably outsell both M5/M6 which only comes in Black color.

Another factor you need to keep in mind is that Medium income is much lower here. Canon SL2 (200d) will outsell M5 just because of its much lower price.

Canon made the EOS-M to PROVE-A-POINT that entire premise for Mirrorless camera is FLAWED. That a cheapo $600 SL2 combo will easily beat out an expensive $1199 Canon EOS-M5 @ HALF the price. SL2 not only focus faster, performs betters, and its EF-S lens is more complete and cheaper. Canon really goes out of its way to Severely Underpriced SL2 and Overpriced EOS-M5 to prove this point. As a mirrorless convert myself, the existence of SL1/SL2 makes the mirrorless argument rather mute in my book. So in that regard, Canon has already succeded by casting doubt that mirrorless is the future....(NOT?)

I hope the AF motor is strong and not weak. I've tried the Sony A7 (1st version) + the $249 FE 50/1.8 lens. The combo focus SO S L O W L Y that it simply isn't a viable option. I have 10 years old P&S that focus quicker. A used Sony A7 is affordable, so if Samyang 35/2.8 AF speed is decent, I may consider it.

On article Canon EOS M6 Review (376 comments in total)

I want to ♥ the M6 (for vlog/selfie), but looking @the Studio Comparison @iso3200. M6 looks terrible next to a 3yrs old Sony A6000, or against a much smaller M43 Olympus E-PL7. Canon need to improve its lowlight high iso, I rather have a lower 18mp but with cleaner high iso.

ZeneticX: a6000 still looks like a good buy for those who need a portable ILC, that camera is 3 years old now!

Sadly, after 3 long years (almost 4), no one else has managed to create a camera that can challenge A6000 for $500 in spec, price, high iso noise handling :-(

I wish DPR add Smartphone photo into the Studio Comparison test. I'm aware that most smartphone only have limited iso setting. Still, it would be nice to be able to compare a Sony RX image against the lastest smartphone to check how the IQ has improved. So how about it?

There is a already a EF 50mm f/1.8 STM, do you mean an EF-(m) version for the EOS-M?

tkbslc: I'd still probably recommend the Canon 60mm f2.8 USM for most people. That's such a good lens, at a more practical focal length, and is only $50 more. It also doubles as a great portrait prime.

I think the novelty of the built in light will wear off quickly and you are left with a very short macro lens suited to a very limited set of subjects.

Tamron makes a 60mm f/2.0 Macro that does double duty as a portrait prime.

60mm Macro lack the useful Image Stabilization, which is highly beneficial when you're shooting Macro that require small apertures to ensure enough DOF. I think IS alone makes this the better choice for most people.

My favorite Single Focal length is 40mm. I like 50mm, but it can be very tight indoor, and 35mm is often a tad wide for me. I think 38~45mm is my favorite. Come to think of it, most early digital camera in late 1990's were all 38mm, so I was trained with near 40mm Focal Length in mind.

I agree with Allison Johnson on her selection of Olympus 12-40/2.8. It only has 14 lens Elements (lowest f/2.8 zoom I've seen) vs 19 in Canon 17-55/2.8 IS USM. Lower the lens elements = higher T-stop and more light to the sensor. What's more, its Bokeh @40/2.8 is stunning (make me question the need to own an Olympus 45/1.8) and its close-up ability makes it a semi-macro lens on the go. I'm saving up to purchase this lens, I may even sell my primes for it. Rare to see a Fast Zoom exceeding fast prime, this is one of them, Canon 70-200 F4 IS is the other.

Moto G5 cost around $220, Samsung S7 is nearly $800. Its about 1/4 the cost!

tkbslc: JPEG engine seems to have overcooked the pictures.

Agree, I think the next evolution for Smartphone is either F/1.2~F/1.4 lens or go for the slightly bigger 1/1.7" sensor. Finger crossed for a combination of 1/1.7" sensor with F/1.2 lens, that would be a killer. 1" sensor would be even better, but the Size constrain would probably favor 1/1.7" as the sweet-spot.

Impressive for a $220 Smartphone. DPR, how about doing an article on Battle of $200 P&S vs $220 Moto G5. I think Moto G5 will iwin over most P&S with the same 1/2.5" sensor size.
I'm looking foward to the days, when Smartphone will use the bigger 1/1.7" sensor like those in the Canon Powershot G10/G11/G12.
