On article RIP Canon's Chuck Westfall, 1952-2018 (71 comments in total)

I didn't know Chuck personally. But before I switched to Canon in the mid 2000s I saw and read a few interviews by Chuck on the features and benefits of shooting with a Canon DSLR system. Thanks Chuck and rest in peace.

Love to see that Intelligent compact camera concept become a reality. I will buy it for sure. It'll fit into my tennis bag and I can use it to analyze and improve my strokes. As to Canon going full throttle on mirrorless, great for them. I still hope they continue to improve on their DSLR technology. I've got the fantastic 50L and 85/1.2LII so I'm not going anywhere.

Awesome news! Maybe I'll postpone my purchase of that upcoming (rumoured) iPhone XPlus and instead save money for the FF Canon mirrorless. Hope it's a nice kit lens and looking forward to using my 35L with it.

Thanks dpreview for posting this. Along with Dustin Abbott's review, it clinched it for me. Got the lens yesterday and tested it this morning (with my 5Ds) amid snowy conditions. Very happy with the lens so far.

Absolutely love it!!! I like to throw off the background for portraits and it's amazing that I can do this with my cellphone.
I just hope that Apple can extend the depth to more than 8 feet so I can use it for full body shots of taller adults. Also, Apple needs to add this feature to the Apple Watch because as of right now it is not supported yet (at least on my series 1).

Just like your photos I'm loving the colors from my 7 Plus! Very vibrant without being over-the-top. Portraits shooting 2x are excellent----can't wait for that official release of the 'faux bokeh' Portrait mode!!!

José B: Awesome pics! 7Plus looks like a winner just like Stan the Man's much vaunted one-handed topspin backhand. Can't wait to get mine.

Absolutely, I'll take pics with it. I was in the market to replace my compact Canon S120 and was interested in the Nikon DL 24-85 + I wanted a mini tablet like a mini ipad 4 for reading, travel and photo storage. So instead of these, I'm just getting the 7+. I'm pretty sure it won't take as nice pics as a 1 inch sensor but it should be enough for everyday picture taking and I only bring one device instead of two. Besides, I have no idea when Nikon will release the DL 24-85.

Don't care about the earphones as I've been using my wireless Beats 2 at the gym for a couple of years now and it is great.

Barney, that 'faux bokeh' pic above looks good considering it is a very busy background. I wonder if Snapseed can improve it even more?

I care, that's why I pre-ordered the 7+ (upgrading from 6). I was in the market to upgrade my Canon S120 (was interested in Nikon DL 24-85) and mini ipad 4 for travel/storage and etc. Well I combined these needs with the 7+. From specs, I know the Nikon should be a better camera but then again I have to carry two devices. With the 7+ I'll carry just one.

It should also be a great tool for my healthy lifestyle and fun to boot. It partners with my Apple Watch. I can use the video to analyze my tennis strokes. I can read The Economist while waiting for a tennis opponent to arrive and get styling ideas from GQ. Do some solo selfies and behind the scenes selfies with models after the photoshoot with my Canon DSLR. Listen to music while I do HIIT workouts at the gym. I just wish it will fit the front of my skinny jeans and if not in my man purse for sure during the summer months.

On article Apple unveils iPhone 7 and dual-cam iPhone 7 Plus (905 comments in total)

Initially I plan to do some upgrade from both my Canon S120 compact camera and iPad version II with Mini IV for travel and everyday use. Looked at the yet to be release Nikon DL 24-85 to replace the S120. Now I can combine these two needs with a purchase of the iPhone 7+.

Thanks for doing this dpreview! Great job! I already have this (5DS) awesome camera and have done tennis and model shoots with it. Having said that, I think a lot of people are looking forward to your full review. Cheers.
