Ha Ha! So funny! Sony looked so tiny and cute. I wonder if the Olympus Tough camera would have survived?

Malling: The photos are if we look away from what genre it’s supposed to be pretty good, but allot is simply to far away as a stand-alone wedding photo, because it doesn’t showcase any kind of emotion and involvement, for me personally that is important in that particular genre, for other types of portrait it would make much more sense.

The lamp is so overused that it’s almost a cliche, it’s a cute almost innocent photo but creative it’s certainly is not for that it is seen to many times before. But again cliches is kinda what a wedding is, even the shadow on the pavilion is seen the first 100 times, still nice.

Exactly my thoughts, Jake!

Reactive: Why is there so much coverage of space photography on DPR?

Only a few number of people can do space photography? And very interesting!

This is AWESOME! Makes me want to re-visit my trinocular microscope and do some micro photography/videography. Unfortunately, I still have not researched enough on which adapters I need to connect my camera to it. Wish the adapters I have working with my astrophotography worked with the microscope.

For the new bottom mode dial that just has Video, Photo and S&Q, when you switch between modes, does the Shutter Speed, ISO and Aperture carry over to each mode or is each mode independent of the other? So say I am in photo mode and set shutter speed to 1/2000. After that I change to movie mode and I set it to 1/50th. Then when I set the mode back to photo, will the photo be set to 1/50th or remain at 1/2000?

wats0n: Instead of just enjoying the announcment, Sony folks on this thread seem to enjoy bashing Canon and Nikon instead. Do you feel more secure doing so ? I know fanboysim exists across all systems, but Sony folks seem to have the worse case of brand insecurity I have ever seen in my life. Some of the best photography work I have ever had the pleasure of viewing came from a women who shot with a cheap Rebel and a kit lens (and yes that work exceeds the capabilities of most on this forum), so if having to have the latest greatest gear is your thing your not a photographer, your a gear head and as such your compensating for your lack of skills. Enjoy what you have and go out a shoot and stop looking in the mirror behind you ;)

Uh, oh...you had to used the "W" word! We all saw how quickly the comments section got closed for one of last week's article about it ;)

mermaidkiller: Only 1 kg payload ???
So not suitable for DSLRs, unless you have the lightest combination such as an EOS RP with RF 16mm 2.8 lens. But my R6 + lightest lens I have is already too heavy.

"The payload capacity for the large PodZilla is 2.5kg (5.5 lbs). Unlike the smaller PodZilla, which is designed more for compact mirrorless cameras and smartphones, the larger PodZilla can support heavier equipment."

sirhawkeye64: A "fix" for a problem that Canon really could have addressed prior to release, but didn't..... Don't get me wrong, the R5 is a great camera, but Canon could have taken measures to address the heat issue during the design process, but probably was in a rush to get the R5 out (or other features took precedence, like weather sealing, over cooling). The sad thing is that over the long term, overheating, can shorten the life of the camera especially if it's a common occurance (and this isn't specific to Canon or any brand, but in general). Heat is what kills electronics in most cases.

I've read reviews stating that the R5/R6 doesn't get as hot as other cameras when it does finally shut down. So I would think the Canons would probably last longer before getting damaged due to letting it run till it shuts down from overheating. So in one way Canon has an advantage but in other ways seems to be a disadvantage. Great for customers in that they can pick and choose from many camera models/brands that better fits their needs.

It's on backorder. I understand "backorder" is a product that at one point was available (and the product was received by customers) but later supplies ran out (and now the product will be again available at a later time). Was this product already shipped out to customers? Do people already own this product? Anyone have links to any reviews?

True, but the one in your link was controlled remotely. The one in the DPR article was manned.

goactive: Maximum shutter speed 1/2000 sec for that price..

I will have to learn more about this "leaf shutter". I don't use flash often, but wondered why my cameras only go as fast as 1/200 sec when I use the flash.

3V AudioVideo: I don't think I've ever seen cell phone cameras be reviewed in detail, as far as image quality and image artifacts go (or maybe I am not interested in cell phones so haven't seen enough reviews to notice?) I never see a review/compare showing a photo from a cell phone loaded in LR and compared to a MILC photo, where the review zooms into the corner to see if there is any issues with vignetting, chromatic aberration, And to compare again at different Aperture settings (can cell phones even be adjusted here? ) I see a TON of details go into lens compare, but never for cell phones. Instead I hear "in decent lighting, for most users, X phone camera is as good as Z MILC" (or something in that sort of way).

to be cont....

...continued....

Ergonomic on cell phones was mentioned in the comments. It can easily be improved (not saying to perfection) by using a small grip (or tiny tripod with legs that fold into a grip) and then a simple/cheap camera holder to attach to it. With this, you never have to actually hold the phone and you finger never gets in front of the lens. And, really easy to take horizontal images .So no more excuses on having to take vertical photos that cuts out half a persons face on each of the composition but shows 70% of the frame with nothing but clear blue skies! lol I actually saw a selfie photo my friend posted on FB today, of his son in the middle of the back seat, but him and his wife were in the front seat and both their faces were 1/2 cut off. But there was a very large area of the headliner taking up 1/2 of the image, lol.

The end ;)

I do agree that cell phones take great images - if lighting is decent or better and the top tiers do great even in low light. But even my 1" sensor P&S pocket camera does better than cell phones if I want to zoom in to video a rock concert. Sometimes I am allowed to use my APS-C at concerts (using my EF-M lenses only) and even with the 15-45 kit lens, people are impressed with the video it can take.

I also like using a camera because it can zoom in and out more smoothly.
