GabrielZ: Everybody's saying the quality is great. But look at the photo above, the one before you click on the 'View our gallery...' Look at the extreme distortion of the house and telephone pole. They're both literally leaning over!

Okay then...got it.

A classy looking, technologically interesting device.

5.5mm is very thin for a smartphone. Does that make it the thinnest in the world now?

Basically like putting a standard S7 into a protective battery case, like those from Mophie...if maybe a little more rugged than that.

On article Setting new standards: Nikon D5 Review (505 comments in total)
In reply to:

GabrielZ: I was disappointed when I first heard of the low base ISO dynamic range of this camera's new FF sensor, I thought it would have the highest DR of any current FF sensor available as Nikon's are usually very good in that department. Personally I'm much more excited by the D500 than the D5.

@Lea5 - Yes I know, but this is a new flagship model with a clean sheet sensor design by Nikon, the DR should of been class leading like it is on the D500.

In reply to:

Michael Oersigh: Nice review, but it seems to me that the D500 is a better allrounder at almost the same level of the D5, with the exception of build quality and better battery build. As for IQ, the D5 easily beats the D500 in action sistuations, but I rather go with D500 than the 810 or 750 or 7200, because it's half a dozen of one or the other and none of them are perfect and the D500 has added abilities that overcome it's one IQ flaw.

I'd like Nikon to release a new 'D900' prosumer FF with all the added capabilities of the excellent D500...that would be my perfect DSLR!

ZC Lee: Please, Apple engineer. Buy ZF3 Deluxe, learn how to design Antenna.

Just what I was thinking! Asus can make antenna lines completely disappear on a full metal jacket smartphone but Apple can't? And while the mess of those antenna bands on the iPhone 6 series are going to be considerably reduced on the upcoming iPhone 7, from the leaks that I've seen, there still going to be visible on the top and bottom rear edges of the new design...yet another example of the once smartphone leader Apple falling behind the technological curve.

Wow...didn't realise SanDisk was worth so much.

Peter62: The D500 has no chance against the Fuji X-E2 !

Just try the following, it's the best way to evaluate sensors:

Use DPREVIEWs phantastic Image Comparison Tool.
Switch to LOW LIGHT.
Set ISO 12800 (i.e.).
Compare Fuji X-E2 and Nikon D500.
Buy the Fuji. Forget the overpriced D500.

I have an X-E2 and like it. But my enthusiasm for the camera and brand has been dampened recently. I bought mine about a year and a half ago, so its still quite new. But a couple of days ago while doing some night photography I noticed a burnt sensor pixel that stands out like a sore thumb! it wasn't there before. And I'm a bit peeved by that! It indicates bad quality control, which I wasn't expecting from Fujifilm. My previous Canon EOS-20D DSLR I used for nearly a decade before switching to the X-E2 (needed something lighter and more compact) never had such issues and even today is still in perfect working order. When I'm able to upgrade again, because of the sensor issue (and poorer quality control of their newer lenses apparently) I might go back to DSLRs despite the increased weight and size, from one of the two big brand names. After reading the review here, Nikon and its D500 is now the front runner!

The guy in the video looks like a serial killer or is that hipster art posing? LOL! Seriously though despite the video being recorded from a 1.5X crop of a cropped 1.5x APS-C sensor, the quality looks pretty decent to me. And light years ahead of previous DSLR efforts.

91%! I think that's the highest score DPReview has ever given to a camera.

GabrielZ: Apple's also going B&W with an upgraded Music interface too, I believe. Its going to be introduced at the WWDC next month.

It doesn't really. Its just that I read about the Apple thing very shortly before reading this. So made a tenuous connection...end of story.

B&W as in black and white /monochrome...not the speaker manufacture!

On article Keeping the faith: Pentax K-1 video overview (101 comments in total)

What I've read about the K1 is very promising. But putting that aside for a moment...this is just the best looking FF-DSLR out there!

In reply to:

alcaher: Im gointo to buy the d500 but i also want so badly the K-1, Forget about those digital medium format big boxes.

This two cameras are going to be the best two dslrs of 2016.

I've been mirrorless for a couple of years now and don't regret it. But if I had enough disposable income (I don't!) I'd seriously be considering a K1 and D500. I've been really impressed by what I've seen and read about them so far...the DSLR seems to be making a serious comeback with these two!

Impressive! And with pixel shift enabled quite stunning! Good on Pentax.

Aren't smartphone camera reviews supposed to be on the Connect sister site? Has it been incorporated into DPReview?
