Daniel L: Next time try shooting wide open for a change, you are not inches away from the subject. Don't be shy.

Isn't the point is to see accurate the camera focusing is? why shooting everything at F5.6 on a 70-200mm? Forgot how to use aperture?

Agree with Daniel. To test AF must us wide open. Best if using 400 f2.8. Unless you are very close, then yes 70-200.

Use table or chart to compare so that people can view it with a glance. Weightage for landscape, portrait, sport, low light, travel., video, cost and system. Please...

Intermittentoverexposure: How the h3ll can dpreview give it an 80%? That's utter nonsense. Pretty much EVERY respected review site trashed this. It was named worst camera of the year on several.

This is a standby video camera for some Pros. For most of people using 4k from the smart phone will be enough.

Mark K: Amazing review..for a new camera. I will never say A6300 will replace any dSLR for person like me..but anyone else, this is a real dSLR replacement. In fact, a dSLR lover like me, always take a mirrorless out for traveling and daily hiking.

6. Battery live, not only no. of shot but while waiting.
7. Lens' size and weight.
8. EVF refresh rate.
If we are not shooting sport and wildlife the these point are irrelevant.

Put on the 150-600 to A6300 and there is no significant in size and weight between DSLR and A6300. When you waiting to shoot some action the battery of this A6300 with be exhausted before you press the shutter.
Yes, A6300 is very good camera, but it cannot replace DSLR completely.

On article Great Eight: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 review (537 comments in total)

In body IS not good enough? Need Dual IS. Like to see the test result. Since this camera got both, can we selectively activate then and compare the result? e.g.
1) Body only IS
2) Len only IS
3) Body+Len IS
4) No IS
Waiting to see the result.
Haha.

KW Phua: Don't use base ISO to jude all cameras.
Eye AF cannot be use for PJ or Wedding photographers, they do not let the caramel decide which eye to focus when there are so many pair of eyes in the view finder.
Basically D5 and 1Dx are not design for most people, sorry.
Really hope the reviewer know what they are reviewing for.
These are tools for living.

@Rusk, are you saying you have to adjust the bride and groom position every shot before taking photos?

Sport PJ usually shoot Jpeg and do not have time to lift/push shadow. Good hi ISO IQ is most importance. This camera is design for PJ. Don't use DXO to jude D5 or 1DX.

:D the difference is huge

Eye af! LOL. When taking wedding there are sons my pair of eyes. You let the camera chose for you. When shooting at f1.4?

Link | Posted on Mar 29, 2016 at 09:56 UTC

So this a Hi ISO camera. Design for action and wildlife. Best for Astrophotography, also. D5 is not targeted for most of the people. Too expensive to use for landscapes. You can get D810.

brownie314: I just can't see how Canon can sell more big black plastic boxes when there is competition like the A6300 around. Yes, I know they are still the sales leader - and DT is still leading the R primary race - that doesn't mean he is the smartest choice - he is just shouting the loudest.

@brownie314, please go and ask those Pros why they still stick to DSLR. Yes, for certain photography mirrorless can do the job well, but not all. Sorry, are you those Pros?

Link | Posted on Mar 26, 2016 at 06:19 UTC

Good improvement Canon, although still lag behind for low ISO. This is the best all round camera for video, still and action/wildlife.
So far non of the camera is perfect.

In reply to:

Luddhi: This reviewer—and a few others—wish that the a6300 had different controls. They ask for more control dials and joysticks. My question is: how would Sony do that without losing one of its most valuable features?

I have an a6000. One of my main reasons for going with the Sony was because the controls do not stand proud of the body. This means that I can slip the camera (with the much-maligned kit lens) in and out of my travel jacket or cargo pants without snagging or moving the controls. I have shot with a few other cameras whilst out with friends and, aside from P&S and fixed lens cameras none of the others I have tried can be used this way.

Rather than lobbying Sony to change the a6n00 series and thus losing users like me—and, if reported sales figures are true, there are a lot of us using these cameras— I think it would be better to encourage them to build an a7n00 series of APS-C cameras to meet those needs

Smart phone is the best.

Hi ISO look like 7DII is better, but D7200 & A6300 have higher MP, so I think D7200 is still best.

In reply to:

Marty4650: The intended customer for this camera has absolutely no idea how old the sensor is, how dated the technology is, how unsatisfactory the build quality might be, or that it lacks many features that Dpreview members think all cameras should have.

They will see it at Walmart, and buy it. And Canon will make a profit on every single 1300D sold.

And if you want more camera, Canon has those too. You just won't find those cameras at Walmart or Target. This camera isn't for everyone, and I won't be buying it. But lots of other people will.

My Old 7D is able with the old sensor still able to capture great moments.
