BadScience: The wailing and gnashing of teeth about Trump becoming President of the USA is pathetic.

Those that wish he were not elected president need to realise that he won in large part due to millions of ordinary Americans rejecting the fabricated thin-skinned outrage culture that is poisoning debate.

@Davinator: In addition to all the other topics you comment on and have no idea what you're talking about, you might also include the U. S. bankruptcy laws and their usage as one of your numerous remedial topics of education. It's pretty clear by your remarks that this too is not a topic you command by any first-hand business perspective. But hey, if Trump does it, it must be "bad". (snicker)

Terry Breedlove: Trump is about to erase everything Obama has done. His Legacy Lives by the executive order and will die by the executive order. Overnight !

@MarsViolet: It's remarks like yours that easily explain why the Democrats/Leftists were creamed in the last election. You have nothing to offer but name calling...and it shows. Oh well.

@Davinator: I would suggest that you examine Trump's accomplishments more fully. He's a very successful businessman and is not interested in protectionism. He's quite in favor of expanded business opportunities but ones that are more balanced from a trade deficit point of view. In addition, the man is trying to look out for the working folks in the country...something that the preceding administration had no clue about.

The proof of that is that the Democrat Party was obliterated in the last election losing 1,030 seats nationwide and in states that previously haden't voted Republican in many years. The Dems are now wandering around in a daze seeking some kind of relevance. Sooner or later they'll realize their Leftist agenda just isn't something hard working people are interested in.

@bryanburn: There's a difference between having health insurance and having health care access. ObamaCare was a hugely expensive failure with insurance policy deductibles in the stratosphere and continued to get worse. Every state-run exchange failed. If you have $6-$8k as a deductible, why bother because it will be all out of pocket since the deductible threshold will never be reached. Furthermore, it was so bad that many of the larger participating insurance companies have opted out. It was just one of Obama's many, many failures. At least he can't hurt anyone on the golf course unless he beans someone.

Trollshavethebestcandy: Are all the Barry Soetorro sycophants going to start a cult and worship him away from all the sane and normal people? Honestly, so many worship him like a deity. He was just a politician who managed damage America that will take decades to fix. And no, I don't like Trump.

Fujica, you might want to read up a little more on ISIS and how Al Qaeda expanded greatly during the Obama years before debating the subject.

To Carl Mucks: Yes, the Left has issues with achievers like Trump...the very same achievers the Left relies on to support them. And then they whine about the way they get supported. What a joke they are.

Jim: Thank God he's gone. I could care less about the photographic artistry when it comes to him. He was an absolute incompetent and no friend to America. Adios.

Too smart? That's pretty funny since he couldn't find his backside with both hands unless he was told where to look. $20 TRILLION in national debt...thanks a lot "smart" guy...a real genius alright.

More unexciting news! Keep this announcement next to your night stand as it will help you sleep.

On article Modern Mirrorless: Canon EOS M5 Review (1599 comments in total)
In reply to:

Donnie G: With the M5, Canon delivers an enthusiast level, compact mirrorless ILC that is so easy to use it will sell by the boatload, much like their Rebel line has done for the last 13 years. Seems to me to be exactly the kind of product I would want to be able to offer to shoppers if I were running a 32 billion dollar optical and imaging company. Just saying. :))

But why offer a competing line to the Rebels that really isn't any better. It isn't that much smaller (particularly when compared to the S100/100D) and requires a $200 adapter to use Canon's own lenses. Sorry, but I just don't get Canon's marketing strategy of being late to this market segment and then offering a feature set that the M5's competitors have already surpassed...for less money! Sounds suspiciously like leading from behind to me.

On article Canon is selling a gray version of the Rebel T6 (146 comments in total)

Why Canon would even bother with a product as meaningless as this is puzzling.

I was at the airport recently and EVERY flight from EVERY airline made the announcement to turn any Samsung Note 7 off before boarding. What a catestrophic PR debacle. And to make matters worse, this is the announcement being made at EVERY airport worldwide. It just doesn't get any worse than this from a marketing standpoint.

Greg7579: What a shame. Love the Note 7. Awesome phone. I have charged mine every night for 6 weeks. No problem. But no choice.... Have to turn it in soon.....

Agreed, and we're in the same boat. My wife has one and I have a Note 4. Both of these phones take excellent pictures. She's going to an iPhone 7 Plus and I think I'll just keep my Note 4 for a while.

Thsoft: There are something wrong with Canon. 4K Video is now common even in compact camera or Smartphone. But Canon never have it in even pro-summer level.

Samuel, it's like Karroly said...better to have a lower res 8MP image than none at all. Even after cropping the 4K 8MP image down to get the image you want from it, it's perfectly acceptable for the type of photography I do (to wit: aircraft, trains, ships, etc.). It's particularly useful when one isn't given a lot of time to set up (i.e. an approaching aircraft that is recognized and then reacting on this short notice to capture it). 4K video capability in this case works just fine.

I don't shoot much video but I'd like the camera to have 4K included so that 8 MP still frames can be extracted from it.

Why not also include a fully articulating LCD? It helps protect the LCD when not in use if turned toward the camera. Tilt-only doesn't do it for me at all.

On article Beta: try out our new 'light' color scheme (722 comments in total)

I like the original black...easy to read and the photos "pop" better. I'll stick with the tried and true.

Jim: Why bother with articles like this? It's a complete waste of time, particularly on a camera that has been out for so long. How about concentrating on more camera reviews and lens reviews? This ranks right down there with the lame humorless cartoons that used to be run (which aren't any more, thankfully).

To mxx, Thematic and ace106...You're welcome to your points of view and I respect that. To me it's a waste because: 1) the camera will be under warranty for a year, 2) after that it probably won't be worth fixing given the cost between fixing it and purchasing a new model, and 3) given 1) and 2), the likelihood that I would tear a camera apart, purchase a internal camera part (other than something very minor), and put it back together is zilch. Anyway, it's just my take...no intent to offend.

bernardly: This new Sony RX10 lll drives a stake through the heart of the Canon G3X.

@Bernardly...I share your puzzlement regarding the omission of an EVF on the G3X. What's even stranger is that Canon included one with the G5X. Go figure.

To Bernardly: Don't forget that this is the third iteration of the RX10 and Canon's G3X is their first in-class offering. I'm hoping that the G3X Mark 2 will be more competitive. The specs on the Sony RX10 Mk 3 look great.
