avatar77: I'd like to see the Galaxy Note 7 results. Perhaps the exploding battery will help it ace the low-light test?

drivecancel: Still overpriced, bit that's Canon for you. They aren't very good at balancing price and features/quality. That's why their mirrorless range is a joke.

I don't think Nikon's prices are any comfort either.

Thuravi Kumaaran: For me, final result is the pictures and its color tuning. In that Canon is happened to be the leader. Technology and life needs harmony, somehow canon known this better than the competition.
So, Canon photographers didn’t worried much about DR. If it is there, without harming the harmonious color tuning, it’s a jewel to its crown.

Thuravi Kumaaran "For me, final result is the pictures and its color tuning. In that Canon is happened to be the leader. "

I'm sorry, that's like saying the one with less colour depth is nicer.

Dan DeLion: First rate review. It is interesting to note that the new Mark 4 is not as sharp as the two year old Nikon D750. If you doubt it, go to page 9 of this review and compare the two cameras.

Joed700- Image Resource compares jpegs so it's best to take it with a pinch of salt.

Dpedraza: It's very nice at least this thing can track better than that terrible 7d mark II I had. That thing couldn't track my daughter walking the pony in the field. A lot of people don't seem to like a camera that they have absolutely not experience with. I'm sure if they actually had it in hand like I do they're opinions might be a little different. The AF system so far seems killer.

Maybe it was a contrast issue.

oldschool68 - that looks like proof in the pudding.

How about this comparison. The Pentax K1 is really impressive.

Alfonso Bresciani: overlay the 5dIII af spread area VS the 5DIV's and compare them...the difference in coverage it is not big deal at all!

It is if you could get the shot with more ease than before. Reframing causes some misses in quick event photography.

Nick Brundle - Photography: Strange how so many of Dpr's experts are slagging this camera off already?
They need to get out more and enjoy taking photo's!

Not sure how that works rrccad.

From what I see this new Canon takes great stills.
I like the natural colours, it's different from the vivid 5DSR.
Spoilt for choice really.

Speaking from the N camp that is also pretty spoilt for choice.

In reply to:

livelong: It's too bad this camera has crippled video features, like 1.7X crop, 30/4K, rolling shutter issue, ancient codex...etc. A significant amount of video makers invested in Canon solely for shooting video. They bought all the nice accessories and rigs to build the system around Canon, and look what just happened?

I hope Nikon has its wind sails up, because it can capitalize on Canon's vulnerability right now.

The thought is nice, competition will only hasten better products from everyone.

Stanchung: A video would be more helpful.

How is it different from other bags?
Why is it better?

Love those two brands, still using them. My LowePro AW is 10 almost 15 years old. ha

My 11 year old Crumpler messenger needs an update for daily use. I'm intrigued by this camera cube.

The modular design makes it good for daily work and shooting outings.

A hippy bag one would have some secret pockets to hide "stuff". haha

Colour is ok but it's not scoring in the looks dept I'm afraid. It looks like cheap nylon and flimsy with little padding. Don't think it would be good for laptops that don't fit into the 'cube'. Weary of chipped laptop cases with these bags, especially the corners.

icexe: I feel like I could do the same thing with some cheap L-brackets and screws from my local hardware store.

Definitely cheaper than $21/-

In reply to:

adegroot: $21 each? That gets expensive quickly!

These brackets cannot be used for Brownies, old cameras with no tripod socket, TLRs, many medium format cameras, and you name it.

I have a small collection of old cameras, but this gadget is decidedly not for me.

The issue of dust settling on them is indeed a crucial one.

I think it should be in a glass case.

belle100: OK nice. Over to Nikon camp. What can D5 do now?

Don't think Nikon video is on par.

Good enough for most situations but the AWB of the Canon sounds godsend.

Thank you, I enjoyed the workflow and decision making in a low contrast subject processing.

To the haters, p off.

In reply to:

Stanchung: Better DR on the 1DX2 but better high ISO on the D5. 4 cameras having same 80 overall score.

Makes it harder to brag doesn't it? hahahaha

773 points but the 1DX2 is ranked 20, D5 is 23 after all.

Tech specs just creeping along.

dialstatic: Given that I just started taking my first astro shots last week, this is really depressing. Kinda like starting a small business and then reading about how Bill Gates did it or something.

Seriously though, the video is spellbinding. I was at least as fascinated by the one that compares visible light to IR.

Comparisons make you unhappy. Focus on what you can change, do your best to ignore what you can't.

It's a struggle for perfectionists. >.<
