Does Nikon have a trade-in program, so owners of Sony cameras can trade them in for a camera made by a real camera company? :-)

It's too bad that females aren't allowed to buy this camera. :-)

bobfonte: It's a very big effort to save Nikon from bankruptcy...

Nikon was never even close to bankruptcy. Nikon forecasts that, this fiscal year, the company will have an Operating Profit of 45.0 Billion Yen.

Cool! You pay $3,500, and then work for free. What's not to love. :-)

A potentially cute idea, but the (no audio) clips are only a few seconds long.

On article In her own words, photographing the Vietnam War (4 comments in total)

Regarding Vietnam still photos of other photographers:

Until a recent documentary on the subject, I didn't know that "Execution of Nguyễn Văn Lém" and "Phan Thi Kim Phuc - Napalm Girl" were also captured on movie film. Both types of images were powerful in their own different way.

mxx: Who was it that said Canon does not innovate?

Canon's 4,000,000 ISO color movie camera is pretty cool, and it's an actual shipping product, not just a prototype.

Sdaniella: a new kind of terrorist-assassin will arise ... assassin-via-drone ... long-distance remote control or AI (non-remote) IED-delivery (grenade) to target (hard or soft) ...

a new kind of defense ... drone-hunters and drone-op-hunters

a new kind of electonic RF jamming defense infrastructure should arise ... it turns automatically on to jam all (detectable) unauthorized remote-control-signals of aerial drone intrusions into public airspaces ... worst case scenario, it has an EMP weapon to disable everything in proximity to an unidentifiable flying drone (when drones are AI (non-remote control; fly autonomously))

all drones must be "identifiable" in flight (friend or foe)

Yes, (sigh) it's just a matter of time before someone attaches something like a block of plastic explosive to a hobby drone. :-(

Samuel C: I thought sponsored ads were supposed to be labeled as such.

@PhotoUniverse: Get real man!! In this post, DPR failed to follow their own Sponsored Content disclaimer policy. Below is an example of DPR's usual disclaimer:

"This is sponsored content, created with the support of Amazon and Canon. [link] What does this mean?" -DPR

It's not unreasonable for people to expect DPR to follow their own policies.

@Tom Ames: You're suggesting that dpreview should not write about cameras?

Of course not. That's just a silly straw man argument that you made up. DPR's standard practice is to label sponsored content with a Sponsored Content disclaimer at the bottom of the article. In this case, DPR forgot to follow their own standard practice labeling policy.

"I always just bring one lens—the one on my camera."

Some people buy M43 cameras because of their compactness and light weight, and then bring along a backpack full of lenses. :-)

ozturert: This will be very interesting, but D850 has higher DR and Canon does not bring any innovation :)
Or...

This is way more innovative than Nikon KeyMission. :-)

On article Canon EOS Rebel SL2 / EOS 200D Review (551 comments in total)

"It's simply no contest there with the SL2's AF system blowing away the D3400 in live view and movie mode." -DPR

Nikon 1, introduced in 2011, apparently has a fast AF system. It's strange that Nikon never transferred that technology to the live view of any of their DSLRs.

So, Yashica's concept is so bad that they won't even fund its development themselves?

In reply to:

dr jim: I think it is a big mistake for DPreview to get involved in this type on "infomercial". I watched it an thought, "that's weird, in light of the review they gave this camera". It came across like Shawn Spicer spinning one of Trumps tweets. I didn't even notice the line about sponsorship until it was mentioned here in the comments, and even then, I had to hunt for it. There should at minimum, be a voice over at the beginning, stating that this is manufacturer supported material. It's not my responsibility to go hunting for disclaimers. Fundamentally though, this is a review site. To do advertisements in the form of a review is completely disingenuous. We now know their endorsements are for sale and this calls into question everything that they do.
Just my opinion.

"I think it is a big mistake for DPreview to get involved in this type on "infomercial".

For better or worse, DPR has been involved in sponsored content for a long time.

Canon 6D Mark II

"Its stand out performance is in the Sports (Low-Light ISO) category, where a very good score of ISO 2862 ensures well-controlled noise on unprocessed RAW files up to mid ISO sensitivities. Its headline score for Portrait (Color Depth) is also very good at 24.4 bits, putting it inline with recent Canon sensors we’ve tested and ensuring excellent color using low to mid ISO settings." -DXOMark

What a horrible, horrible, camera! :-)

They list the dynamic range as 11.9, but that's not the tragedy that some people make it out to be. According to one source, Kodachrome film had a dynamic range of 8 , but that didn't stop people from taking zillions of great photos with it.
