flashcactus: How disappointing. There's nothing dignified about another me- too mashup with an insulting "soundtrack". I had to mute the sound after 30 seconds and the images were, editing-wise, just another lash-up.
Surely the answer would have been to give the job to someone who knew what they were doing, like Stanley Kubrick or George Lucas or Steven Speilberg. They would have at least got some kind of a classic, and not this trash. Signed: Musician and photographer in advertising and film for the last 40 years.

Good luck getting Stanley Kubrick....

JonB1975: So DPR - is it the Pentax K-1 or K-70 in this poll?

Only one small issue - I wouldn't have voted for the K-70...

Fujica: So we should be able to tether but can not do so at this moment in time as we need to wait for Adobe to update exchange addon site..

That is NO good Fujifilm!

You're complaining to Fuji about waiting for an update from Adobe?????

Great competition - until you realise they will have the right to use your images for anything for at least 3 years... And note the word 'perpetual' is also in there - think long and hard first!

samfan: Actually I think it looks oddly nice. This 90's plastic has its retro charm too. It looks like the late cheap film DSLRs so one can play hipster. Unlike some 10 years ago when silver/grey plastic felt cheap and tacky, these days it's kind of new again.

I'm a kid of the 90's so this kind of stuff actually gets me more nostalgic rather than the rectangular Fuji style. I mean if the baby boomers can get their design resurgence, can't we have one too? It's not enough for me to run out and buy one of these but eh, if I was a Canon user and needed a 3rd body or something...

Tho I don't get it why these companies don't make even the most basic lens in the same color. Pretty sure the 28-70 and 70-300 lenses back in the day also came in silver.

90's retro??? And then you realise the 90's started over a quarter of a century ago.... *sob*!

Chinon 35mm fixed focus compact - with occasional use of my Dad's Exakta Varex IIb - one of the few left-handed cameras ever made (and I'm a righty)

Konstantin Mineev: Where are the guys who usually speak: "I will not buy this lens because it cannot be used with my front polarizer/ND/protect filters" ?

See above...

Have you tested the dynamic range in DPRAW?

Link | Posted on Sep 1, 2016 at 09:17 UTC as 54th comment | 1 reply

From Digidog further down the comments: http://www.rawdigger.com/howtouse/Canon-dual-pixel-technology

DPRAW apparently increases dynamic range by 1 stop and bit depth from 14 to 15....

In reply to:

CopCarSS: Maybe it's all in my head, but out of all the dozens of digital cameras I've owned and used, the original 5D gave me the files that I thought were the "prettiest" for lack of a better superlative. There have been plenty of cameras that measure better but there are no other images that give me a jaw drop reaction upon opening to full resolution as consistently as my 5D images.

The same goes for the 1Ds mkII - a dinosaur, but still with 16.7 Mpix and lovely colours

In reply to:

naththo: I am confident that new 5D Mark IV will have lower noise than the 5DRS due to lower resolution at 30MP rather than 50MP so that high ISO shooting will be a lot less problem than the 5DRS to compare. And I have confidence that this new 5D Mark IV will have good low ISO noise as the recent 1DX. It is good to see Canon cut back on MP at last. Thats what most photography wants, 50MP is wayyy too much for just 35mm sensor size really!

Are you okay with 24Mpix on the 80D?

Link | Posted on Aug 28, 2016 at 09:19 UTC

It was called the [mju]II in Europe as well - still have mine!!!

No ultrasonic sensor cleaning? I hope they've come up with a viable alternative (and what is it?) - Otherwise, what the hell????

JonB1975: About the buffering - if the camera was set to record jpegs to CF and RAW to CFast would it be 'unlimited'?

Good to know - Thanks!
