On article DPReview TV: Canon EOS R5 review (933 comments in total)

OK sounds like what the web has been talking about. If you are mainly doing video then get external recorder or a different camera. For me I don't do enough videos for the over heating to be a real problem. As usual it hits some users more squarely on their needs.

gavin: I am sure the 3 major brands are all good enough. This is just a financial endorsement deal like naming a stadium.

My point is all of them are good enough. Some are better at different aspect and different point in time. However being in a tech focus web site every pixel counts ;-)

Well these forums can get very territorial. Some like their brand no matter what. Other would change system every year because a new system is so much better.

Well they do make more of the compact sensors. I like my R100

Nice to see something positive. Glad I funded their kickstarter. It was the travel tripod that I was looking for.

EthanP99: RIP Canon R5 🤣

I think the R5 will be a lot cheaper like the 5D II was at the time

OK for someone in the camera review business why would anyone call the 5 Series flag ship? Obviously sometime in the future there will be a 1R series especially when the EVF improves. I will need to try the R5 EVF and see if I switch. It looks very amazing on paper and I am happy that Canon finally woke up ..

Congrats. Used them once and service was great. Also appreciate your articles and tear downs. Keep going

gavin: Nice. I hope it has that new AF selection thing from the 1DX III. I think I will still wait for next gen for now but it is very tempting.

Too bad.

Your comment has a typo its 1.4x extender not 1.3 ;-)

Look forward to the new mavic air 2 to start my drone shooting. It will be good enough

On article Why Leica's M10 Monochrom is more than just a gimmick (656 comments in total)

Ha ha. Good one... I do agree that removing the Bayer filter is better. However still seems like a Leica fleecing scheme.

Cool. Seems like targeting the 1DX III audience and why not?

They are great at milking people out of their money

Very nice. Seems like the AI assisted editing is the future. Less work for me ;-)

About time to catch up... I can hold of getting 24-70/2.8 IS ;-)

Seems like overkill. At some point doing it post is easier.

Started with OpTech, went to BR v1 (not the one tested) then to BR v2 then to PD now back to BR v2. I may go back to BR as I funded their new travel tripod.
