I am not liking the Color Science out of it. Just dull and drab looking. I know a lot of shots are shot in overcast conditions, but that ought to make colors Pop even more.

Ehh, not for me I don't care how sharp they are.

webrunner5: Other than really low light stuff, for it interned use, I see this hard to beat, and I have a new Samsung Note 8.

I never owned the X, so can't comment on that part. Newest I have is the iPhone 6s plus.

Shlomo Goldwasser: Improvement suggestions because we at DPReview know everything better:

Constant changing of segments to keep up with the music means you can't see many of them long enough to appreciate them.

Many of the shots I didn't know what I was looking at. Would have helped to have subtitles explaining what is being seen and at what magnification.

Music is a bit too 'bond villain' for a subject involving natural beauty.

Yeah I made the mistake of watching the video without reading the article LoL.

I, like you, was pretty clueless what I was seeing. Was a great video, but agree with your statement about sub titles.

russbarnes: Wildly embarrassing for Canon. This tops off a horrendous product year for Canon, now using fake images and standing by the decision Trump style? Canon have quickly become a pale shadow of what they used to be, the also-ran of the camera industry. It's sad to watch their demise.

@PhotoKhan

If that is the lying, stupid company you want to tie your wagon to, have it.

FlyinDoc: Nikon is exactly where Sony were when they kind of, but not quite, abandoned A mount and went all in on E mount. F mount will become a road to nowhere in the future. So if you are starting out now, which eco system would you invest in?

@Slideshow Bob

Because it would end up looking like the Sigma SD Quattro, H body. Might as well keep it as a DSLR.

matthew saville: Am I way behind the times if I have no clue what bitcoin "mining" is? How the hell do you "mine" something that is man-made, and from its birth is 100% owned by investors? Are bitcoin currency creators just going out in the real world and sprinkling this stuff on the ground, for "miners" to go around hunting for? Or is it a similar situation, but entirely cyber?

I'm so confused.

@matthew saville

Well if you don't take chances, risks you are never going to make lots of money. It is easy to do everything the person next to you does, it is really hard to succeed.

No it actually really works if you have Lots of Machines, and Lots of time, and well Lots of electricity to run them all!.

GodSpeaks: I stopped using GoPros years ago. Just too many issues. I switched to the Sony Actioncams when I switched to 4K shooting and have been quite happy with them. So much better than what GoPro had to offer at the time, and almost zero issues. The Sony just worked.

I am not surprised GoPro have been having so many problems, especially since all the Chinese clones arrived at a fraction of the price for a GoPro. The writing has been on the wall for a while now. The market is flooded with actioncams of all types. GoPro does not stand out anymore, is no longer unique and is mostly overpriced for what you get. Not a winning combination. If GoPro actually sells, it will probably sell for a song.

The Rx0 is a overpriced turd.

I like it. Great conversation piece on my wall.

Well that is why they invented lighting LoL. But you make a good point.

I have a New GoPro HERO5 Session and I can tell you it is an amazing product.

As for Drones, I agree the governments will ban all of them before it is over with.

woerd: Beware of LG 4k screens. I owned 2 LG 4k large screens. Both were sudden death after two years. No support from LG because the warranty period was finished. Never again.

I have a HP ZR30w that is going on 5 years old and going strong. I think all the high end stuff holds up pretty well.

Well I must admit 4k video out of a GoPro or a Samrtphone is not a heck of a lot different looking than a "real" camera on 80% of the content.

The gap is really not that far off.

I have a Moondog Anamorphic lens I use on my cell phones. But going that big, 62mm is getting pretty silly. You might as well buy a Canon M3, or a Panny GM1 etc. and go that route with that much hassle.

Man, no way am I rock climbing LoL. Nice shots by some brave soul though.

On article Why you should own a 135mm F2 lens (385 comments in total)

I think for student and people portraits a 105mm is pretty nice when you are using backdrops in a studio.

But a 135mm is a nice travel lens.

Hmm well done. More stuff to buy, sigh.
