On article New kid on the block: YI M1 review (698 comments in total)

You're better off waiting for a deal on one of the more established brands, IMO. You can't get too hung up on MSRP in this hobby.

Androole: Wow, Panasonic is just killing it in these comparisons. Coming up with top marks for the G85, FZ1000, LX10 and ZS100.

I've owned many different camera brands; my LX100 is my first Panasonic and likely not my last. There is a lot of tech but also great usability. It's been on the market for over 2 years now but remains a top competitor.

f/1.4 wide end, aperture ring, great 4K and a vlog-friendly LCD makes this an appealing choice. The problem is the real-world price is currently higher than the LX100 in the US.

That's what I thought too!

Buy an LX100 and a plane ticket instead!

If you're at all interested in video, this is probably one of the best bargains out there.

On article Apple revamps MacBook Pro lineup, adds 'Touch Bar' (871 comments in total)
In reply to:

RawBob: It seems to me that Apple has no interest in a touch screen Mac of any sort at the moment. I'm a little annoyed I'm still stuck with my original Thunderbolt display and Mac Mini i7, since Apple has no interest in a new desktop either. I bought a Surface Pro 4 and love it, and as for the naysayers that constantly whine about security and "ecosystems", I could care less, Windows 10 is fine if you know how to set it up and use it. Adobe has done a great job with their touchscreen integration, and I have no issues with CC on the Surface. My only quibble is that Microsoft changed the USB negotiation and I can't connect my D7200/D500 to the Surface via USB port, so I have to use a card reader. They still have not fixed that issue and they won't listen to users complaints regarding that. I won't be buying a Macbook of any description.

Years back, Apple filed a patent for a computer design with an articulating display that could slide down similar to the new Surface Studio and be used more comfortably as a touch device. I guess Apple abandoned that concept and Microsoft seized it.

James Booba: No OLED? :) cute.

Probably a conscious decision based on burn-in issues inherent with OLED tech. Wouldn't want that on a toolbar.

Hold Fn and the Touch Bar will display traditional function keys.

I remember being so excited when I bought one of these back in the day. It was a lot of fun! All of my pictures are still saved on it.

On article Modest Updates: Nikon D3400 Review (373 comments in total)

I suppose Nikon removing the ultrasonic sensor cleaner is a tacit acknowledgement that most buyers of this camera won't ever remove the 18-55mm kit lens.

Mateus1: I will buy GRIII if it had:

1). Build-in EVF or external EVF
2). 23mm F/2 lens (35mm FF equiv.) + 2 converters: 16mm & 50mm (24/75 equiv.)
3). WR
4). 24MP

It sounds like the upcoming X100 replacement model will satisfy most, if not all, of your requirements.

In reply to:

mcshan: The RX100 IV is great. The larger LX100 is a really good camera. For those that don't mind not having an EVF this camera might be a nice addition. Tough to say without knowing more about IQ.

For those willing to trade the RX100IV's pop-up EVF for a 2/3-stop faster lens (at wide angle), and save a few hundred bucks, this is a great option. I believe this is the only camera on the market that gives you 24mm (equiv.) f/1.4 in your pocket.

abortabort: It looks rather 'chubby'. It's weird but all these 'in development' mirrorless announced today look like they have gone away and ate nothing but McDonald's. Where the A99 II is looking that bit slimmer and trimmed down, it actually looks almost slim and elegant. Will these meet in the middle of portly small framed person and slim and trim amazonian?

Probably some of that added bulk is for heat dissipation to deal with 4K and all of the processing power.

In reply to:

Mateus1: Why it's so ugly? Really clumsy shape. Like Zenith from Russia.

I agree - I find the GH3/GH4 body more appealing. This has some awkwardly-resolved contours.

DDWD10: I'm confused. I see 6K photo but is 6K video officially supported?

I see. I guess we'll see the big jump straight to 8K video with the GH6!

In reply to:

Androole: Absolutely killer bang for buck.

$999 for weather-sealing, 4K video, 5-axis IBIS, no AA filter, no shutter shock, and a weather-sealed 24-120 equivalent lens? Does anything else come close?

Agreed, this will be a solid video platform for those not wanting to spend the big bucks on the upcoming GH5.

As a Pentax K-5 IIs APS-C shooter, I'm seriously considering going to M4/3 for the speed and video capabilites, but the still image DR is keeping me from pulling the trigger.

f/1.4 on a 1" sensor is appealing... Clean, wide angle pocket astrophotography.

This does make me wonder what Panasonic has planned for the future of the LX100 though. It never had a real direct competitor. The LX10 is more clearly meant to go toe-to-toe with the RX100 series.
