jackpro: Looks like there is a bit more detail at max iso over nikon 5500 not too bad

Actually max iso performance is very useful with slow lenses that are typically paired with these bodies

On article Samsung introduces NX500 with NX1's 28MP BSI sensor (144 comments in total)

I have a Sony RX100III & I barely use the built in EVF I use the NFC/Wifi function all the time to transfer images to my Note4 for uploading to instagram. My only complaint about this camera would be its pocketability which means I wont buy it. Samsung please make a Sony RX100 killer as there lack of an operating system like android means no builtin instagram.

MediaDigitalVideo: D4s and NO 4K recording ?

Those video lenses you are poo poohing have much lower transmission loss & are an order of quality that exceeds standard photography needs with manual focus only. Canon are doing this because they have a good collection of primes & zooms already.

On article Red Giant offers subscription to video editing tools (26 comments in total)

started paying for lightroom & photoshop very cheap $10/month more than happy with that. I like the subscription model updates just come through when available. Some of these exotic plugins for editing can be prohibitively expensive & a subscription is a lot easier on the pocket allow better cashflow management whilst maintaining the most recent updates

On article Canon announces EOS M2 in Japan (616 comments in total)

Have been using the M1 for a few weeks with 22mm nice combo amazing value, can't wait to order an leica m adapter. touch focus shoot is so intuitive. if your in to canon this is so cool & the price is crazy cheap. the 22mm lens is worth it on it's own. some random event shots with 22mm f2 no flash https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B5qwZ4l4jGOWa1pTcUYyTENEYnc&usp=sharing

Siddharth: Assuming I do win a lottery or a bag of $4000 falls on my head..and I buy this lens..
But how do I manual focus with my 5Dm3? Its too painful...
Hope Canon takes out 50 1.2L II

6D takes manual focus screens not 5DIII

On article DxOMark tests Canon EOS 70D sensor and lenses (133 comments in total)

Disappointing looks like my advice to friends if your buying aps-c stick with Nikon the camera, focus, lenses are of a higher quality. If you shoot prime lenses like me then buy the glass which in my case is 35L, 50L, 85L. Nikon don't have the goods there, any Canon FF body will do the shots will come out beautiful with no post production work needed. Perfect for the pro DSLR shooter looking for the best results with minimal effort.

jackpro: this is another option http://enlightphotopro.com/gear/the-orbis-ringflash/

the orbis is designed to minimise hotspot at flash connection point so sinister bottom lighting it is not - the rayflash advantage is it can take my 85L the orbis can't http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=EeUt9PF6jD0#t=162

Nishi Drew: Reading the comments, it is clear how many people can't handle switching lenses :)

A light Canon 6D with a 24-70 f2.8 will be the wedding shooters choice but sigma hit it out of the park with the pricing wow
