About me:

carpe diem
also, but that's less important, one day find a camera that
matches the human eye's 125mp, high ISO performance,
lack of noise, AF speed and continuous tracking, and its
portability! Not to mention self-repair...

  • who cares? Either you do have paying customers, in which case whatever people say doesn't matter. Or you do not have paying customers, in which case complaining in DPR forums will not resolve your ...
  • you are perhaps right in an open market - but clearly this camera targets, first and foremost, existing owners of Canon lenses. When you run a company, the point is not to produce, at all times, ...
  • Most recent smartphones will deliver an image quality comparable to that of even enthusiast compacts. And many recent models with two camera modules (or even three - Huawei) are able to provide at ...
  • only YOU can decide. And it's easy: - DPR provide sample lab shots. They have started including smartphones from the iPhone X (before that they probably felt it was not politically correct ;-) - ...

  • it's a free world ! When the momentum was good, founders of DPR were lucky to be able to sell their young company to Amazon for a hefty sum, and despite its huge resources Amazon apparently thought ...
  • (1) I guess it depends on how good you (and wife and friends) believe your photography to be.  If good enough then you know A7riii can bring benefits. (2) and, can your budget take it - I mean the ...
  • (1) this was expected for quite some time now: - as volumes decline massively, economies of scale in purchasing and production are much less, and so the cost of production goes up a lot - as sales ...
  • about 98pc of cameras sold today are smartphones. The image quality of the latest models is already very good, their sensors are still small but better and their image processing has taken over ...
  • Totally agree w you:  wonderful colours, and wonderful shots with this 50 f1.2 - warms the heart! But come ON DPR, they could have been a bit more careful with their compositions. Subjects all over ...
