justmeMN: "The RX100 V has "just a 1-inch sensor," but it's also truly pocketable." -DPR

I doubt that it would fit in my jeans pocket, and during spring, summer, and fall, I don't wear a jacket.

Your first link is for the original RX100 not the V which is a bit bigger.

Imager of: I’m sorry. I will not be happy until these small compacts are full frame and can take 8k video and 120fps. Oh, with a decent zoom factor. Maybe 400mm long end at f2.8
Thanks.

And fits in the pocket of your skinny tight jeans!

keeponkeepingon: "and faster in continuous drive than most Dual Pixel cameras we've tested,"

I'm curious: Which is better in low light? My A6000 is mostly useless in anything but good lighting as slow meh CDAF kicks in. Does dual pixel AF and the RX 100 V have the same issue (reverting to slow CDAF when the light dips)?

8 pages and I still don't know if I can take a decent selfie with the R100 V. I see the screen tilts looking at amazon but can the screen tilt all the way up or down so I can use it to frame a selfie? You seem to think the tilting screen is a vlogger feature but I've seen a few people besides vloggers take a selfie.

If I spend $1000 on a small portable camera and then need to take out my iphone to take a selfie, that's huge fail for the camera makers.

Thanks. I found the specs on sony's web site. You would think a comparison like this would show the screens flipped forward facing so you could... compare the cameras.

> "Try using your A6000 in AF-C"

I have tried all modes. When the light drops it switches to contrast detect AF regardless of the mode. I'm not as familiar with the dual pixel AF and was wondering if it switches to canon's horrible contrast detect AF in lower lighting conditions.

> the RX100 V will be better due to faster lens

The RX100 lens is not faster than fast glass on my A6000..
With dpreviews claimed equivalence advantage I'm collect 10000000 times more light with my fastest lenses. (note that's an exaggeration as I don't care to calculate the actual number, the point is I collect more light on my A6000 with fast glass).

> I wouldn't count on either of these two to shoot dimly-lit sports.

Thanks kharan. I'm not interested in sports, just stuff inside with less than perfectg lighing.

keeponkeepingon: Can either of these cameras take a full resolution still while shooting a video?

Some googling shows the sony can take a 17mp still when recording a video when not in 4k or 120fps mode. Not full res but good enough for me that I would not have to have a seperate camera for both stills and video for family stuff.

So what's the deal with the canon. This used to be an "easy answer" as canon has always supported taking a still while taking a video but they dropped this feature from all of the recent dual pixel AF cameras including the 80D, 5D MK IV, EOS M5 etc.

Thanks!

Exactly Khran

Sdaniella, canon cameras in the past (as recently as the 70D and 7D MK II) could take a full resolution still while taking a movie but the recent canons lost that ability.

Under Sibling Differences you neglet to mention that LR CC does not support Windows 7 while LR Classic does.

This is a huge deal given Windows 7 if still the worlds most-used operating system.

In reply to:

TORN: The product name is very well chosen: "Lightroom CC" translates perfectly into "Lightroom Cash Cow" or "Lightroom Cloud Crap" or "Lightroom Customer Custody".

I can only respond with Adobe BB - like in bye bye or big bull.

Yep. This is basically apples aperture -> photos. How many pros stuck with apple after they dropped aperture and how many pros switched to photos?

I've been a big adobe supporter but this move has me looking at alternatives.

Gosh I thought this would cover the stuff missing in LR CC and how to deal with it but you don't, mention or compare the two; instead just tell us all to "shut up and color" and that everything will be OK.

"I need multiple libraries, though

Do you really? "

Yes we do. I'm not mixing my personal and work/pro libraries period. And I'm not using elements at home and I'm not paying adobe twice.

" and hopefully increased internet service provider (ISP) bandwidths,"

Yeah just ignore the fact that ISP's in the USA are charging more for less and hope for the best. Wonderful business strategy.

"The current version of Lightroom is not going away. "
From a marketing standpoint it has gone away. Try to find classic on Adobe's web site? You can't get to it from the drop down menu; it is a foot note hidden on the bottom of LR CC's web page.

"1 mb/s". I laughed out loud at this. How long does it take to upload one 64gb card, and how many months to upload your existing catalog.

Does anyone else have the same issue?

Figured it out. LR Classic supports windows 7, LR CC is windows 10 only.

Crazy given windows 7 is still the most popular operating system. Why isn't this mentioned anywere on dpreview and instead we get fluff pieces like this?

" an usable archive" should be written "a usable archive"

"A" versus "an" is not based on the starting letter of the word that follows, it's based on the sound the first letter in a word makes.

" peculiar interpretations of what a vowel is." no the a versus an is totally based on how it sounds, no one cares how you intrept what a vowel is.

The U in use is not a vowel sound. Is it an uniform or a uniform? It's about the sound; maybe if you are an ESL type of person you sound it ooz-sable but the rest of the world pronounces it you-sable.

Hey there's actually a web site devoted to a versus an and it agree with me:

https://www.a-or-an.com/a_an/usable

But ignoring facts and the rules of the english langague "a usable" is 14 times more popular than "an usable" on the web (and a lot of the "an usables" are from translations), so even it you think it may be right for most english (versus ESL) speakers it just sounds wrong:

"It is possible to use them in parallel,"

I wish you had discussed the limitations of this a bit more. For example reading that statement I assumed they could both use the same catalog and I could switch between CC and CC classic and my edits/selects would be the preserved.

But then reading the rest of the article it looks like it's the opposite. Or is it?

I have LR Classic, do a bunch of edits, switch over to LR CC, none of my edits are there, I need to "migrate" the catalog to see the edits.

Also I have work and private catalogs. This is an absolute requirement for the type of work I do, I simply can't mix my family and work stuff.

From what I'm reading the only Adobe CC (not classic) solution for this is to to maintain and pay for two entirely separate Adobe Accounts?

I'm guessing accountants were leading the design teams.....

On article Meet the Canon PowerShot G1 X III (327 comments in total)

OMG

Every once in a while when researching a product I hit a youtube link that is just a series of amazon pictures in a slideshow claiming to be a review.

And here we have dpreview doing the exact same thing..

Misleading clickbait providing no new information.

IF you have actaully turned the device on can you tell me what happens when you hit the shutter button while taking a movie? Prior to 2016 every canon would take a picture but in 2016 canon dropped the ability from every single DSLR / mirrorless camera.

Did dpreview mention it in any of the 8000 pages of canon coverge? Nope.......

So for $1300 can it keep up with every pre-2016 canon and every smartphone when I click the shutter button while taking a movie?????

"What you need to know"

Can it take a picture while taking a video?

Unfortunately every current DPAF canon except the 7D MK II has dropped this feature. If I pay $1300 for a point and shoot do I get to keep it?

Thanks!

On article Video: DxOMark's smartphone rating system explained (40 comments in total)

I hate videos so not gonna watch it (anyone have a transcript?) but I'm curious does he cover the fact that unlike the dxomark lens tests (which would be the most equivalent to the smartphone test as they test the lens/sensor combo) everything is "normalized" making the resolution of the sensor and the resolving power of the lens totally irrelevant beyond 12mp? So the test is literally an evaluation of who makes the best smartphone at taking 12mp images.

And yes it's really really odd that the test always tracks the iphone resolution (it started out at 8 then moved to 12 when apple upped the resolution)

In reply to:

PhotoUniverse: And all of this people thought Nikon paid to DXO to keep other sensors show up

Sony doesn't make the D850 sensor (which is sort of what this about).

Link | Posted on Oct 11, 2017 at 18:50 UTC

So isn't this statement kind of silly, talking about the wonderful high resolution, considering that the DXOMark Sensor test is "normalized" to 8mp? Laterally all this test tells us is the D850 is the best 8mp camera $3000+ can buy.

"The introduction of the first BSI sensor in a full-frame Nikon DSLR with a super-high 45.7Mp resolution puts the Nikon D850’s image quality on par with, and often better than, medium-format cameras. The first DSLR to hit 100 points "

100 points in an 8mp contest.....
