On article Sony a9 shooting experience: Here's why I'm impressed (691 comments in total)
In reply to:

justmeMN: For comparison:

"It shouldn't come as a surprise to hear that the [Canon] 1D X Mark II is solidly built. It features the same inspiringly-robust-feeling level of build and sealing that the 1D series has had for many years." -DPR's review of that camera

It's in comparison to:

"Also, Sony's made claims that the a9 is weather resistant, but after handling the camera and flipping out the port doors, battery door and memory card doors, I just don't have the same faith that it would survive a downpour that a D5, 1D X II or E-M1 II could shrug off." -DPR

M Chambers: As usual the Sony haters are dominating this board. If you don't like Sony camera then don't use them! No one is forcing anyone to.

So far 300 people have chimed in just to say, "Sony sucks."

It's just childish.

@M Chambers Your claim that "Sony haters are dominating this board" is silly hyperbole.

That white wolf should be a standard part of every DPR camera review - very photogenic. :-)

FLruckas: If we fall asleep like Rip Van Winkle will there ever be any Canon news worthy of waking us up?

:-)

When you wake up from your long slumber, Canon will still be #1 in ILC market share. :-)

Sony claims to be #2 in USA-only FF share, for only two months.

"The period in question comes immediately after NikonUSA's big full frame promotions in November and December 2016 had ended." - Thom Hogan

chida: They are only talking about US market. What about Europe and World market!

And they are only talking about two months of data.

On article Light's L16 camera is in final stages of testing (300 comments in total)

If memory serves, the US military has one (large sized, fixed wing) drone in which the whole underside of the wing is covered with smartphone-type camera modules, and software puts them all together into one live image.

DPR posts Sony press releases, but it "forgot" to post this press release from Canon:

"Canon Celebrates its 14th Consecutive Year of No. 1 Marketshare in Global Interchangeable-Lens Digital Cameras"

lehill: You know, I'm a Sony guy and this news discourages me. I wait for Canikon to pull a rabbit out of their hats - they're certainly capable of it. But these two companies continue to sit on their laurels just like Kodak. What's wrong with these guys?

@lehill: "What's wrong with these guys?"

Last year was Canon's 14th consecutive year of being #1 in worldwide interchangeable-lens camera market share, and they had a worldwide ILC market share of 49%.

In the last figures released by Sony, they claimed a (by value) whopping 12% in worldwide ILC market share.

(USA Only) "...sales figures for Sony from January and February 2017." -DPR

That's too short a time period to draw any definitive market share conclusions.

On article Nikon D7500 vs Nikon D500: Which is better for you? (387 comments in total)

[Slide 10] It's curious that Nikon Europe and Nikon USA offer different kit lenses for the D7500.

Martin.au: Second recent false report from Nikkei about a camera company dismantling their camera division.

Now I'm intrigued as to what's going on at Nikkei.

Perhaps (?) Nikkei's stores aren't really false, they're just premature.

justmeMN: Olympus' camera-imaging division hasn't made an annual profit in years, so they can't be accused of greedy camera pricing. :-)

My previous comment ended with a :-) , so it wasn't supposed to make sense. Mission accomplished.

mxx: Oh, no, Pentax is doomed ....again!

The Pentax brand name is on its third owner, so it's not like they have a history of success.

"Ricoh ranks a mere sixth in global market share in interchangeable-lens cameras and eighth among camera makers overall." - Nikkei Asian Review

Ricoh didn't deny that part of the article. With the camera market as a whole contracting, it's inevitable that some smaller players will eventually drop out.
