  • I have a $45 Bogen 3001 tripod from 1987 with a $45 ten year old no name Chinese ball head. I've used them thousands of times in my job as a real estate photographer. I've been told by other RE...

  • People are complaining about the price of the Sony a9. I bought the Canon 5D when it first came out in late 2005 and it cost $3,300. In today's money that is $4,231, almost the cost of the a9. The...

  • OK, you finally got on but the sound is cracking up and I can't stand to listen to it

  • OK DPR, how do I listen to this? there is nothing going on FB, it's blank!

  • WOW! Simply amazing too. As for the high price people are complaining about, with the cost of living increase, the A9 is about the same price as the Canon 5D from 2005.

  • In 1985 Minolta made the first auto focus camera SLR that worked. Honeywell sued Minolta for patent infringement. Minolta lost and had to pay, I believe, $121,000,000. Minolta never recovered from...

  • I remember reading on DPReview back in 2006 when Sony brought out it's first DSLR, the Sony 100, that Sony could not make it and Nikon and Canon would put Sony out of the DSLR camera business very...

  • When I was using a Canon 5D, my favorite lens was the 24-105, a great all around lens.

  • When Minolta brought out their DSLR with IBIS in the early 2000s, Canon and Nikon said IBIS can't work. I guess they still believe it. From the 1960s to 2000, Minolta was by far the most...

  • Commented on article Video: Sony a6500 First Look

    Rob, I agree. Ten years ago, my 5D @12MP was near the top. Yes, I made some really good images with it but today the crop sensor 24+MP cameras can run circles around it. Sensors have greatly...

  • Commented on article Video: Sony a6500 First Look

    "And which photo can only be made with an A6500 which can't be made with a 10 year old Canon 5D"

    My $500 two year old Sony A6000 outperformed my 10 year old $3,200 Canon 5D in every way! And it...

  • I was hooked, it cost $250 for Canon to fix the release button, for which they said was a know problem with the 5D. I sold it on EBay and most of my Canon lenses and switched to Sony forever....

  • I got my 5D in Jan. 2006. Great image quality for the day and used it for all kinds of photography, portrait, scenic, real estate and photojournalism. By May, 2008, the shutter release button...

  • Nope, not a user issue, 40% of the time I was using the Canon shutter release cable. Sounds like you got a good one. Canon told me it was a problem with the camera, not all, just some. I sold most...

  • It wasn't just the 5D that had shutter button problems, I was told by the Canon repair shop in New Jersey 3 other models,20D, 30D and 40D, had the same problem. Canon should have repaired it for...

  • OK here is the proper way to spell it, Junk!

  • Nope, I don't need to know anything about a Cannon camera. My last Cannon was the original 5D and was a piece of junk. The shutter button fell apart at 8,000 frames after 1 year and 3 months. Cost...

  • Twenty years ago I bought a used Nikkor 50 F1.4 from KEH for $25. It was very well used but the glass and mechanical was in perfect condition. My Nikon camera died 16 years ago but I kept all the...

  • It says 70-200 teardown but the video is 24-70. Some one made a boo boo.
