  • The key word in the OP was " appears that my Iphone X captures a wider dynamic range." By contrast, camera JPGs appear as if they capture a very limited dynamic range. It's all about how the tones ...
  • Looks like most people agree with you: The results speak for themselves! Together, Sony and MFT account for a whopping 60% of the votes. Pentax isn't even in the running, LOL (could it be that it ...
  • Good observation! There are some very narrow minded people who believe that one should do all the processing oneself to be considered a "real" photographer, let alone a bona fide artist. Your post ...
  • Canon and Nikon have given plenty--PLENTY--of reasons to doubt them. We all know what they are--whether it is Canon's feature-crippled EOS R's, Nikon's late entry into mirrorless, which it itself ...
  • The OP didn't ask whether both "would do the job." He asked "which one is better." We all know which one (even those twisting themselves into a pretzel to deny it--they know who they are!) !
  • You definitely don't want to be jackhammering away with a DSLR in burst mode during important parts of the ceremony!
  • Yes, a modern smartphone's images actually have more dynamic range because of how seamlessly they harness hardware and software. They'll have not just you but also your friends and any other ...
  • There have many notable advancements in audio technology since you were a kid--from active noise cancelling devices, wireless headphones that eliminate cable microphonics, 3D audio (Dolby Atmos ...
  • The D780 has got DOA written all over it. It's clear both Nikon and Canon see mirrorless as the future. People aren't going to fall for this parts-bin, rebadged D750.

  • I have good quality glass, so I don't need one. With cheap glass, it's probably a must. Plus, these days, people scare easily when they see a big bulky anachronism pointed at them. A lens with hood ...
  • A smart move by Canon! Everyone wins!

    The forward-looking users can enjoy Canon's undivided attention on the RF cameras/lenses.

    And as for the rest:
    The other day, I shot a macro of a fly. Even...

  • Replied in Oops, iso 3200
    Wow, what a rabid, frothing at the mouth post! (I'm just holding up a mirror to your opening line, so I trust you won't take offense). In the first place, unlike many a "real camera," the ...
  • Great point! I bet some of those people from 1995 said "MS-DOS" is all the quality I'll ever need. Even if people choose this thing called "Windows" over it, I'll still be able to enjoy my MS-DOS ...
  • Perhaps with modern glass, such as that made by Olympus, whose m4/3 lineup tends to be highly regarded, lens hoods might be mostly optional. But you have to realize, Glen, that a lot of Canon and ...
  • Replied in Oops, iso 3200
    You've ruffled a few feathers. You see, the establishment these days is so caught believing and attempting to prove (futilely) that "real cameras" are so much better than smartphones that when an ...
  • Before EVF was good, they said "pros aren't using them because they want the best tool for the job." But now that EVF is better, they say "pros don't need the best. Haven't people been taking ...
  • As we're seeing with the very underwhelming D780--did we really wait 5 years for a camera that is, in some respects, a step backward?!--Canon and Nikon are miking their past-their-prime DSLR cash ...
  • Interesting point about nostalgia marketing. "the good old days"
  • The good news is that Canon appears to have put some effort into their LV/video features, which outdo Sony in some respects. Sony dragged its feet with the A9 II; this 1DX III should keep them on ...
  • Replied in The walking dead
    A telling quote from DPR's 1DXIII review: "With major manufacturers embracing mirrorless technology in 2019, it's become apparent that DSLRs may as well be dust for anyone ...They had served their ...
