On article Epson's 4K home projectors to go on sale next month (59 comments in total)

(sarcasm) Pffft. 4K is obsolete, No 8K, no sale! :-)

On article Sony a7R II versus a7 II: Eight key differences (397 comments in total)

These two cameras share one key feature - neither one of them is good enough to be used at the Olympics. (Both Canon and Nikon DLSRs are excellent for that usage.)

(In a stoned voice): Wow man, swirly bokeh.

There needs to be a 8K remake of the "Lassie" television show, so every hair of the Collie's shaggy chest can be clearly shown. :-)

Bernard Carns: When is the NPS interview coming?

Nikon talks a lot about cutting costs. I wonder if they are even at the Olympics.

h2k: Now expecting an interview, i didn't expect in the least this awkward multi-click format. I find this user-unfriendly to a high degree (aware that many on-site clicks may be good for DPR).

I thought this could be interesting content, but i can't bring myself to click-click-click through this.

I know at least one great website of a major general weekly that breaks its stories into 2 - 3 pages - with the additional option of reading everything on one single page. Possible at DPR?

I like the "slide show plus text" format, the way that DPR does it.

"There's just one problem – nobody actually owns an 8K TV" -DPR

Another problem - crappy content in 8K is still crappy content.

Canon and Nikon agree: Smartphone cameras are evil. :-)

I guess application writers didn't support Windows Phone because it had a very small market share, and Windows Phone couldn't grow it's market share because it had significantly fewer applications than the competition.

I look forward to photos of the Olympic Sewage Swim competition. Medal winners get free hospital care.

Waterproof/shockproof cameras are great for candid beach photography. When someone beats you up and throws your camera in the lake, you can retrieve it unharmed.

Interesting, even though both cameras are out of my league.

A solution for a target audience that doesn't care about the problem?

You will know that the camera business is really in trouble, when Getty prepares for the Olympics with a table full of iPhones. :-)

justmeMN: Canon has been #1 in ILC market share for 13 consecutive years. It's a safe bet that 2016 will be year 14.

(Nikon is a strong #2, and Sony is a weak #3.)

I'm not cheering. I'm just posting facts to assist Canon bashers in getting back in touch with reality.

On article Rock Solid: Canon 1D X Mark II Review (423 comments in total)

"This is a camera that sports, action, and event photographers will love." -DPR

A great family camera for people who have (moving) cats, dogs, or kids. :-)

PeaceKeeper: Oh my! So many DSLR's being used for a sporting event! I guess that ends the debate. DSLR's are better than mirrorless at absolutely everything. This single example from one specialized category in the photographic field has changed my mind.

Really, I came here to giggle at the "Pff! Canon?!" remarks... but it seems that those are outnumbered by anti-mirrorless rhetoric 3 to 1! Very strange. Are they scared? Or simply trying to justify carrying all that extra weight on their next vacation? You know, just in case a bicycle race breaks out spontaneously and they need tack sharp images of it for their family album.

Yes, you are using the same type of camera that Getty is using to cover the Olympics to shoot family photos and snapshots of your vacation and back yard BBQ. You're doing it right. High fives and pats on the back all around!

@PeaceKeeper : "Or simply trying to justify carrying all that extra weight on their next vacation?"

The Canon T6i, the kind of consumer DSLR that a person would use for that application, weighs a whopping "Approx. 19.58 oz. / 555g (CIPA standard)". That's not exactly heavy.

BTW, today Canon announced that they sold 1.5 million interchangeable lens cameras last quarter, and projected sales of 5.5 million interchangeable lens cameras this year.
