On article Have your say: Best entry-level ILC of 2017 (24 comments in total)

Alright, i am no Canon fan but that T7i deserves more credit then it's getting. It's clearly better then the SL-2 (It actually works when using the OVF). Unlike the 6d mk2 this sensor is no slouch either.

BEKippe: There is so much forum hate for the 6D2, but it is a solid camera nonetheless. However, I assume I can thank the haters for the amazing B&H deal I got for the bundle over black Friday. So, thanks!

There is a lot of hate because it's a load of crap.
It lags behind the one camera it was stacked against which has been on the market for well over 3 years now

Sdaniella: i picked only ExpSIM LV capable models:
so, i only could choose from 3 models
but favor FF over APSC, no matter what
and favor VASS (Vari-Angle Swivel Screen) over Tilt-Angle Only Screens
so, it was:
1) EOS 26mp FF 6DMkII LV dSLR* (VASS)
2) EOS 24mp APSC 77D LV dSLR** (VASS)
3) EOS 24mp APSC M6 Mirrorless ILC*** (Tilt-Angle Screen)(optional: Tilt-EVF)

lenses possible:
*EF+TSE Lenses
**EF+TSE+EFS Lenses
***(Optional camera kit with extension adapter: for EF+TSE+EF-S lenses) +Optional EF-M Lenses

Translation, I picked Canon only because i am a diehard Canon fangirl which doesn't have a clue that there are other camera's besides Canon's

LessMirrored19: Voted the Sony A9 ...
The A9 -proves- that a dedicated AF module and thus DSLR format in general is not needed to achieve blazing fast and accurate AF.
It's a far more important proof of concept than the a7riii

The question was which is the best ILC of 2017. Not which camera is the most innovative of 2017

A7rIII en D850 are pretty much tied. Sounds about right :-D

On article Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II Review (238 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jefftan: this is the smallest and cheapest 1 inch
problem is 28mm

if it is 24mm I will have already buy
Canon please make it 24mm

The Panasonic is the superior option over the G7x mk2.
But just a different camera then the G9x mk2.

The G9x is just a casual P&S that outperforms modern smartphones in both quality and flexibility. A true successor to the dead compact market. Which do offer flexibility but inferior quality over modern smartphones.

The G7x mk2 and LX10 are enthusiast models that focus more on experienced users.

In reply to:

CyeJoeBob: Nice image quality, but it's still a camera with a lot of wasted potential. It's nothing special about this camera and at this price point I expect something special.

The already 3 years old Panasonic LX100 has a much more interesting feature set with more interesting lens. The RX100 IV/V has slow motion. RX10 III/IV advanced video features and great zoom range.

The Canon G1X III could have been something to close the gap between the RX100 and RX10. Better handling, with mic jack and weather sealing in a more compact and lightweight body. But they wasted the potential. Hopefully the upcoming Panasonic LX200 (if it's coming) will close this gap.

Keep calm, Well the problem is price. The lx100 is about half the price yet richer in features. That substantial price gap doesn't make sense.

Then you coul opt for a mirrorless A6000 for less with the 16-50mm. Sure that lens sucks but this doesn't seem a winner either. And with the A6000 you have the option to replace it. And there is enough money leftover to do so too.

The Gx1 does not have the same sensor as the Gx7 and Lx100.
Even though both have 16mp. Panasonic was quiet open about the changes that improved noise performance and dynamic range quiet substantially.

The gap between those is larger then the gap between the Gx7 and the 20mp sensor in the Gx8.

Well the Panasonic LX100 is only 12mp. So it's less demanding on the resolution of the lens. That being said the 24mp sensor here just seems wasted.

Garug: The biggest question is transfer speed and where to transfer. Would a action cam etc that uses MicroSD be ok with internal memory only?

I do not think so, there is always need to fast replase the full memory.

It's even easier if the files are already on their servers.
We can still install custom roms and limit access accordingly.
Even though investigators are extremely capable in hacking/installing backdoors

Debankur Mukherjee: May be DSLRs of the future will have a built in large memory and eliminate the use of external cards and thus saving cost and introducing slimmer bodies.........

reliability id more of thing of how many things can go wrong. A mirrorless camera has just 1 moving part. The shutter which in time will go away too (look at the A9)
They already have longer shuttercycles then their competing Dslr's. Sure the small bodies sometimes have heat issues (looking at you sony)

But those will be solved over time when smaller more effcient chips become available. Which is even though it takes more time still an on going process.

In short MILC's will be more reliable then their Dslr counterparts. Simply because less can go wrong. If that isn't already the case with some examples.

"They want full control over your data."
That would be cloud storage.

You are responsible for what happens on your phone.
You can encrypt the data on the SD. You can make sure your phone doesn't get stolen.

In reply to:

milkod2001: They are both great, no doubts but still out of reach for the most.

What will be interesting is next year's A7II and D750 replacements at around $2000.

imagine that the D760 would keep more or less same sensor. But inherited the D850 AF system and processor. maximum 8 fps and 10 fps with grip. then 4k recording to top it off.

Done after all it's not like Canon forced them to do anything with the 6d mk2

In reply to:

Veselin Gramatikov: You do not have criteria. So you can not choose one :)
For me is simple as hell.
Nikon d850 is better because this is F-mount camera with DSLR ergonomics.
- Better general autofocus - d850
- Better autofocus and more native autofocus lens - d850
- Better ergonomics and responsiveness - d850
- Telephoto lens - d850
- battery live with or without grip - d850
- Most probably cheaper as system camera + lens + flashes + acc

Still a7r III have way more features /with native lenses/ but on the field ....these does not count.

We can do the same thing the other way arround.
A7rIII because
- Lighter/smaller
- Can be adepted to all fullframe lenses
- Has in camera stabilisation with all lenses ever made.
- Has excellent 4k recording with high dynamic range with SLOG3.
- can mount smaller mirrorless optimized lenses like the 55mm Zeiss.
- has faster burst speeds.

Just because you value the D850 pro's more doesn't mean it's the better overall product. Honestly both are exceeding people's expectations of what we thought was possible just a few years back.

And therefore both products should be applauded by us end-users. Choice is a good thing. Especially when choices are this good.

In reply to:

dmanthree: Good comparison, but lenses? A tossup? Even considering Nikon's vast array of lenses? I don't get that one.

Still having more options including the excellent Sigma ART line-up should be a pro for the Nikon. Sure Sony has great lenses and it has gone from a major point to a minor one.(which we can applaud given in how little time they achieved that) It's still an advantage for Nikon and Canon.

I hope this will change in the future if both Sigma and Tamron start releasing more mirrorless lenses. But so far only 1 is truly an asset. The 30mm F1.4.

Not a big difference is still a difference.

good point, Sure Sony has the basics covered with excellent glass. Sometimes vastly exceeding the Nikon Option. (the 55mm F1.8 Zeiss is twice as good as the Nikon Options)

We just can;t ignore that Nikon has a vast array of specialty lenses from tilt-shifts to very fast telephoto primes.

Which may be extremely expensive to buy but they are also easy to get as rentals. This is a vast point in favour of the D850. Example i can rent a 400mm F2.8 lens for 45 euro ex vat a day. Can't get a lens remotely like that with proper AF on the Sony.

Xentinus: Sorry but such a slapdash article this is!
Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II
Fujifilm XT-2
Nikon D500
Sony A9
Canon 1DX Mark II

True but then the 1dx mk2 showed significant improvements in that aspect compared to previous fullframe Canon sensors.

So it's also their achievement in catching up. Give credit where it's due. The 5d mk4 and 1 DX mk2 have really upped Canon's game.

Now why they had to fail with the 6d mk2 miserably is another topic. Personally i'd rather buy a 80d anytime anyday. Despite being Apsc and costing half as much. Even when given free obviously without the option to sell it.

he also said that the D5 was more accurate. And his testdata shows it. I agree on the Dynamic range at base ISO. That is a fair point of critique on the D5. It can and should have been better in that regard.

now on to framerate. The D5 does 12 fps in raw and keeps on going. Is that really a limiting factor? Honestly i'd rather have every shot in focus which it does. then clutter my hardrives even more then required.

That being said i still believe the 1DX mk2 is the better all-round camera. Which is why he claimed it was the most perfect camera he ever used.
It does everything well but then DPreview compared them as sports-camera's. And there i'd say the D5 takes it. By a hair.
