Tourists and other people with mobility problems would appreciate an articulating LCD. Maybe if you think of this as very useful, not as important but similar pre-active as to putting low curbs on sidewalks for wheelchairs.

Travelling Guide suggested cameras today without GPS -Rediculous!

22codfish: Why was the Ricoh left out of this review?

It's the sharpest looking of the lot and has a good lens.

When you're out and about I think it's handy to have GPS. Two of the four, the Nikon, Olympus, along with the Ricoh WG-50 have built-in GPS.

The Ricoh WG-M1 (DPR lists the Ricoh M1 with Pentax cameras) has a fixed f2.8, and a 16 mm lens; also does NOT have GPS. A wider view may be handy for close in underwater. It does have a fixed LCD on top so you can look down at what you're shooting. It's also shaped nicely to fit in a tackle box. This Ricoh needs GPS to be very useful.

The expensive Sony DSC-RXO (also not included above) has a fixed F4 lens, but no tilting LCD and no GPS.

I wish DPR would draw attention to a better Game Camera. There's a lot of limited specs. out there from which to choose.

It appears you've studied underwater cameras quite a bit to advise the lens is "slower"(?) than all the rest but similar to Fuji. However, I would like to read that comparison from DPReview.

I would like to have an underwater camera with a tilting LCD screen as the main feature. I have problems getting around now and It would come in handy holding it over the side of the boat and walking in tidal pools.

Nope!

For outdoor sports, it should have GPS and an articulating LCD.

I'll keep waiting.

Nice to see the map of Halifax, Nova Scotia and the photo of Peggy's Cove lighthouse in this article.

On article Buying Guide: The best cameras for parents (264 comments in total)

Silly! This article should be sub-titled "Paid Advertisement"

It's everyday common knowledge today that most young parents will reach for their phones to take photos of their children for posting on Facebook. If not a phone camera, than they would be interested in an action camera for their children's sports .

It's only old guys like me that may be interested in a P&S pocket camera or a DSLR.

Congratulations on a first. Of course, I'm curious enough to look at your gallery and I'm impressed so many could be a First. Also, all photos are nicely captioned.

Cheers

WSLam: Just bundle it with a F to Z adapter and they will sell a ton of them. It's all psychological. The Adapter could be $20 (which it will not be), but once you bundle it, current Nikon users will flock to it.

What Nikon needs is an AF Pentax K adapter, so Nikon users can put lenses on clockwise and take them off counter-clockwise. I use both, and it's just normal to screw in clockwise.

Air Canada screwed me on AirMiles; Sears screwed me on their appliance extended warranty. I'm very reluctant to participate in any cryptocurrency.

On article Shooting KÄ«lauea Volcano, Part 3: At Sea (44 comments in total)

You've got to have a known something in the foreground to gage the sizes of the flows. A boat with people on deck for example. I've never seen a volcanic flow, so I don't know what is the safe zone or how a boat would fit in the photo. Is the hot flow so far away that even people on a boat would be too small to see?

On article Sony a7R Mark III review (1254 comments in total)

Look at the MSRPrices - Pentax K-1 is half the price of the others; and that's what it should be if you don't spend a lot on advertising and "shelf-space". This is good for Pentax users. The problem with this marketing strategy is how will other consumers ever get to test and appreciate your product if it's not on the shelf?

Great results, and there's no harm advising up front that it is a 5 shot HDR sequence.

Comes with Canon, m42, Nikon, Olympus, and Pentax lens mounts. That's what all DSLR's should have.
