SteveY80: An impressive device and considerably cheaper than an equivalent MacBook Pro.

I have a mild preference for Mac OS over Windows 10, but for me the choice would probably come down to details, like the quality of the screen, keyboard and trackpad.

Ok, I am sorry for being rude. The german microsoft site I can not find the 15" model.

"The new models come with Intel's 8th generation Core processors and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 and 1060 GPUs, making them "up to five times more powerful" than the original model and twice as powerful as the latest MacBook Pro."
I think I can read.

Dianoda: No mention of display gamut? Are these wide-gamut/DCI-P3 like the Studio or do they continue with sRGB like the previous-gen Surfacebooks?

But wide gamut messes up the whole windows interface. You have accurate colors in colour managed application only. The display would need an sRGB mode.

Really? The AMD Radeon Pro 560 in the MBP should be in the same range as the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 in the Surface. Thats why I can not realte to the claim "twice as powerful as the latest MacBook Pro".

le_alain: "I was amazed by how good it was!"
This is more than enough for posting on social media or viewing photos on a computer screen.

I Like the usual causal Joke that with 10Mpx, (or 12 ...) it's more than enough to post on social media or view on a screen... Wow,
Nobody can imagine than you can print wonderful A2 or 40x60cm with that !
even on a wall with smart uscaling..

Pros print double page with a 4Mpx D2H , or 30x45cm with a D1x

I printed even larger. And White Wall says it would be ok up to 150 by 100 cm with 10mp.

The lens alone is worth the 80$.

Old Cameras: I have a Nikon D3000, last of the 10mp CCD sensor cameras. No video, 3fps, nothing special at all, but I always liked the jpegs right out of the camera. And it weighs pretty much nothing. If you are posting pictures on the web, more camera is meaningless. You can buy these every day for $100. Biggest grip is the tiny viewfinder.

I totaly hate the Nikon D3000. My father in law ownes one and I have to say it is maybe the camera with the worst ergonomics I have ever used. Compacts includet.
But IQ is quite ok.

NighTChill: Yongnuo. End of topic.

100$ or less equals to:
Powerful, fast recycle, hss, ttl, durable, consistent, transceiver, small, inexpensive, cheap, approachable, reachable, possible, affordable.

But they advertise it as such. And modeling light is a very rare feature in speed lights.

Yongnuo does not make studio flashes.

Yake: Not a game changer for me. Except for the dome and modeling light, Canon flashes already provide those advantages: simple, reliable, fast, etc. And they're much smaller and cheaper. And then there's Yongnuo.

I think the modeling light is the whole point of thid device. That is the main characteristic that makes it the advertised portable studio light. Don't compare it to a flash, compare it to other studio strobes! And here we see, portable studio strobes allready exist. Also with TTL-Metering. Just slightly bigger.

PanoMax: I had a few SD cards destroyed when my car caught fire after it crashed a month ago. I guess there is still work to do to make them impervious to fire. Two of my cameras were also destroyed...a GX7 and a Sigma DP3 Merrill.

Forrest fire.

lacix: I never ever had problem with SanDisk cards. Kind of unconvinced of need for two card slots cameras. - I believe to having a spontaneous diarrhea is more likely could occur than a card failure. - Of course, I'm not a wedding photographer, how would I know? - :)

Incidently a friend of mine is a wedding photographer and the failure of a sandisk card has ruined a job (well, half of it). It was a one of the expensive ones. (extreme something). And I had a failure of a Sandisk myself. It was a mechanical one. The card just fell apart. With a bit scotch tape I can still use it with my PCs card reader.

justnuaces: Please, can you use understandable units?
Thanks.

That ist "easy":
T(celsius) = (T(fahrenheit) − 32) · 5 ⁄ 9
So:
-40°F = -40°C = 68°Ré
-13°F = -25°C = -20°Ré
185°F = 85°C = -32°Ré

Thank you calculator from Japan!

cosinaphile: bah the bokeh does not look anything like the computational bokeh of the iphone

so a big fat fail for both full 35mm sized sensor and APS-C sensor

the crop sensor nomenclature is pointless unless you have a promote 24x36mm
sensor size agenda .... i think im gonna start calling 24x36 sensors crop of larger originals

so called full frame s origins are 70mm film cut in half to 35mm
so 35mm is the original crop format.....

ok im done

Crop format is only aplicable for systems/mouts wich feature different sensor sizes. Nikon and Canon had 24*36 systems and introduced, about 17 years ago, Cameras for their systems which featured a smaller digital sensor, a crop sensor. Later Pentax, Leica and Sony did the same. Olympus and Fujifilm on the other hand introduced new systems with new mount for digital. They don't have crop sensors.
In the MF world something similar happend.

semorg: LOL! 32% is a joke. I guess the days of the Moore's law are over. Most NLEs are moving to GPU optimization anyways, and Intel using this number as a headliner, shows how bad their innovation cycles has become.

Furtunatly Capture One relies heavily on OpenCL acceleration.

And add in plus 1000 dollar for a decent ethernet adapter wich will occoupy one of the PCIe slots. Dual gigabit is a bad joke.
And what would be the noise level of that thing working at full throttle?

Theoreticly 16 Exbibyte can be addressed with 64 bit.

ozturert: When D800/E were released, entry level medium format camera prices came down quite a bit. Now we see a similar effect with D850. Maybe it's a coincidence, but...

Maybe the H6D-100c too.

harlanerskine: Dear dpreview — please review medium format cameras! I would love to see comparisons with slr cameras. Thanks

The H6D-Series is a a series of SLRs.
