HEWCanon's recent activity

  • Only problem about the Z7 and Z6 reviews and being awarded gear of the year, is that it makes me, and possibly many other readers extremely skeptical about the DPReview reviews now and in the...

  • I tried the camera and the AF is not on par with the D850 in any shape or form.
    I haven't heard anybody contest that as yet!!
    All people say is; they know it doesn't function as well as D850, but...

  • In response to the comment
    "a large majority actually, of people here are just fanboys and/or stat geeks that simply don't understand the way in which $3,000+ bodies are supposed to handle/deliver....

  • And from DPR themselves

    AF system hunts in low light, due to limited sensitivity
    Face detect less reliable than competition
    AF Tracking less reliable than competition
    AF Tracking cumbersome to...

  • For potential buyers, go out to the shows and shops and try it out for yourself and make that decision out for yourselves .. yay or nay

  • All these problems or drawbacks are already in the review .. so people need to read the review and not rely on the score, which is shown to be very mathematically biased, invalid and showing...

  • -Missing 3D tracking which was always advertised as Nikon's industry leading technology, only till Z7 came out !! Now they say, who said it makes a big difference. Actually you did, and for a very...

  • The discussion shifted completely to the 89% by DPR

    The camera itself is the matter of discussion

    I am not comparing to Sony, Fuji or Canon

    Comparing to own D850 .. because only if it matches or...

  • I had the most extraordinary chat with a photographer friend.
    They got the Z7 in exchange for their D850.
    When I pointed out the problems, they said they are using the D500 for photography that...

  • Why is Fuji XT3 getting a far lower score as mature as it is?"
    Exaggerate much?
    Fuji XT3 = 88%
    Nikon Z7 = 89%
    Sony a7R3 = 90%

    Fuji should be 99% compared to the other two, if they were all on...

  • Main problem is that we are comparing 89% to a far superior D850 with same score .. However, compared to 89% and 90% given to Sony a7 III & 7R III it seems OK. Why is Fuji XT3 getting a far lower...

  • I am really surprised by previous comment

    "If nobody buys the bodies because they're waiting for the lenses to arrive, then nobody will buy the lenses, because they'll be waiting forever for them...

  • I think they can co-exist, as long as there is demand for DSLR while mirrorless lags behind .. If and when EVF, AF etc match DSLR, then who knows. The smaller size and instant effect pre-shooting...

  • D850 + D5100 + many Professional Nikon lenses, so not biased against Nikon.

    89% rating is flawed. Bertrand Russel said "We should believe in what is real rather than what we wish was real".


  • It is obvious that the 89% rating is completely flawd .. Bertrand Russel once said we should beleive in what is real rather than what we wish was real ..

    89% for Z7 .. is not for sure .. and if...

  • Viewfinder/LCD lag


  • Nothing wrong with owning or using a less capable camera .. but not at this price tag :-)

    I sometimes use D3100 and D5100 as second bodies with amazing results .. that doesn't make them a D850 !!

  • I absolutely support and encourage people who like it and buy it :-)

  • Agree with most points about build and raw specs and overdue Z mount.

    However, AF is critically badly implemented, and almost unusable for tracking. Missing industry leading 3D tracking.

    AF is...

  • Does the job. However, be carful with the Anchor Links, as they rub against your camera body in the bag, and create a lot of marks and cosmetic damage that depreciates your camera greatly. I had to...
