  • I could not stop laughing after:

    Pointing to the shots from the Canon, he said "in my opinion, these look like digital images". Turning to the images from the D3 he said "but these look like...

  • Because camera vendors have to compensate dropping sales by exploiting their customers to a higher degree. In marketing terms that is called "we are moving up to the premium segment".

  • Just come over to a Canon camera article and you can see Sony fans at their worst. Exactly as you describe it. Not that this behaviour is limited to Sony users. Stupid, aggressive and rude comments...

  • Commented on article Canon EOS M6 Review

    "Better" is pretty much relative. Let's say the A6000 has a good spec sheet and price point (not considering any lenses) if that is the only thing that rocks your boat. Many people will just mount...

  • Not really. The corner quality even at only 24MP and the sunstars are not. If you use it on a first generation A7 you will even add the sensor reflexion issues on top of it. If that is what you...

  • Commented on article Canon EOS M6 Review

    There must be something wrong with Sony because so many of those users come over to see a camera which is actually pleasant and efficient to use and comes along with good and affordable lenses plus...

  • Replied in Totally agree
    Exactly what I said. If I think "what camera to buy for landscapes" a Fuji is not up there for me. However nowadays any big sensor camera is capable of good quality. Fuji is no exception. Since my ...
  • Replied in Totally agree
    My Fuji is my worst kit for landscape. Of course you can do landscapes with it but why would you if you can do better? Ok, if you have nothing better why not? I stopped using my Fuji for anything ...
  • The absolute majority of Canon DSLR buyers care for this model range and it is great that this class is actually updated with dualpixel AF (talking about innovation right here) which makes it much...

  • We will have to wait and see how this develops over the year. If at the end of 2017 we are still on a constant level then we will have consolidated. The interesting thing will be how the companies...

  • Commented on article Sony a9 shooting experience

    The fact that people exist out there that take better pictures with their mom's cell phone than you will ever do makes your post look pretty funny. Would that allow them to name you a troll...

  • Commented on article Sony a9 shooting experience

    Sure, my 2 Fuji cameras had a lot of very isolated issues. Is that going to make me spend dollars on a third Fuji? Pretty unlikely. That is how hope works in our brains. We try to assume the next...

  • Commented on article Sony a9 shooting experience

    Not so much special in my case but rather relaxed and happy. I went all the way up to 1D territory and all the way back to a 1000$ camera (not because vinyl is so expensive though). This camera and...

  • I see mostly Canon entry to mid level cameras or smartphones. Funny enough these are exactly the photographic tools selling most.

  • Maybe one of the already existing mirrorless is exactly what you need or maybe a DSLR is. And maybe those do not cost you a fortune. The price alone makes the A9 a camera for a very small target...

  • Right now there is no hurry for N&C professionals to switch. And in an interview Canon already stated that they consider to come up with this kind of mirrorless after solving the two main issues:...

  • It remains to be seen what is left of some superior numbers in practical use. EVFs still have their limits. Same is true for on sensor AF and electronic non-global shutters. Then there is the...

  • It would be equipment after half a life of professional use. That is quite different compared to near mint condition which you often get from amateur equipment.

  • Commented on article Sony a9 shooting experience

    There are the benefits of an OVF, there are several issues with EVF (until a global shutter emerges), there are limits to what tiny on sensor phase detect AF pixel can do compared to large...

  • Commented on article Sony a9 shooting experience

    Honestly, I hear only silence. Absolutely no sound comming from my wallet. No, definitely not opening, not even a fraction. ;-)

    Meanwhile I agree that this kind of technology might be the future....
