"...with many thanks to the DIGIC 7 processor..." -DPR

For people who prefer a (fixed-centered) EVF, it will be nice when DIGIC 7 is available in the Canon G5 X line.

"as is typical of Canon cameras (even compacts), the colors are great." -DPR

This is an important factor that is often overlooked, because it doesn't show up on a spec sheet.

In reply to:

fatdeeman: All the canon fans who said only pros should be giving their opinions on these cameras are quiet today.

@fatdeeman: Your comment is based on the fallacy that canon fans usually have negative things to say about Nikon. They generally don't.

Excellent article and photos.

(sarcasm) I though the only thing that mattered was a camera's DxOMark Sensor Score. :-)

On article Nikon offers free battery exchange for D500 owners (96 comments in total)

The D500 was announced in 2016, and some of them came from the factory with pre-2013 batteries? If so, it sounds like Nikon has inventory management problems.

What company will own Motorola brand cellphones next? :-) If memory serves, the company was sold to Google, who sold it to Lenovo.

Sony said that they were shutting down development and planned manufacturing of "high-functionality camera modules for external sale". I wonder if it was camera modules for Apple that they cancelled.

In the USA, Nikon 1 was introduced with television commercials featuring Ashton Kutcher. What could go wrong... :-)

Next, Barney should have the Minnesota Canoe Association teach him how to make a wood-strip solo canoe. Some of those are really works of art.

In reply to:

CameraLabTester: The winners here have one common trait: WiFi and NFC.

The Canon EOS M series and Nikon 1 series are remnants of the cold war era and should be frozen and the brand companies should let it go...

.

For the month of April, in Japan (BCN Ranking) the #1 best selling mirrorless camera was a Canon M3 bundle. Just think what would happen if Canon actually tried. :-) Unlike Nikon 1, Canon M got the sensor size right. Nikon 1 technology will live on in the Nikon DL line, so at least it wasn't wasted.

On article Samsung offers NX1 and NX500 firmware updates (159 comments in total)

Samsung still makes cameras. One of their refrigerators "has three built-in cameras that take a photo every time the doors close". Good grief...

In reply to:

belle100: Looking forward to those Nikon DL18-50, DL24-85 and DL-24-500 cameras soon.

The Nikon DLs were "delayed due to the serious issues with the integrated circuit for image processing". The reopening of Sony's factory won't help that problem.

Nikon states that "the new release date has yet to be determined and we will announce the information as soon as it is decided."

Yes, the November release date comes from Best Buy's web site, not Nikon.

On article Back to the action: Nikon D500 Review (1083 comments in total)

Nikon's recent products appear to be very good.

(Their DL line is delayed, but should feature best-in-class autofocus speed.)

Sony's sensor division (Devices) was a big money loser last quarter, so I guess they will have to sell it off. :-)

In reply to:

junk1: Awfully short for macro work.

This is a 45mm equivalent lens. There are numerous 50mm equivalent macro lenses on the market, so it's not that different.
