They should consider adding photomechanic 5 to the list. Great lightboard and images management program.

Very cool. Seat looks tiny. I would have to add a gel seat cover to that hard plastic seat to make it more comfortable.

Tobias1234: ...these gold and silver awards are confusing. The best mFT camera ever made got a silver award because it is one year to late, even it's cheaper than the same rated E-M1 MK2.
Some month ago, another camera was a camera of the year in her category because of the price,.....
Something goes wrong with the rating system. It's not understandable for many users.

The reasoning used to give the G9 a silver score is obtuse. "Sorry, Panasonic. You were a year late producing this outstanding camera that is superior in many ways to the Olympus competitor----so we are going to give you a lower score to punish you"---Sincerely, Dpreview.com. LOL.

I agree with Dpreview.com's decision not to post the link to the video on youtube of this man's plunge to his death. Would never watch any video posted of this nature on youtube.com even if available.

Gary Dean Mercer Clark: Watched the video triggered a flashback memory from 1988 when I was caught hiking in a freak blizzard on top of a Lion's Head mountain, years ago in 1988. Not fun. Had to evacuate off the mountain. It was harrowing. Survived. All of our party suffered hypothermia. Coming out of hypothermia is not fun. You shake like crazy as you body warms up. As a result, I over-prepare for any hike into Mother Nature. Was shooting with an Olympus OM-1 SLR back then! That Fuji is a bit over kill, but I love the shot of the milky way! Great article and video!

We planned for a fall hike. It was October 4rd, 1987. The weather forecast was mild and clear. Not any indications in the forecast for any snow. We were in the process of setting up tents for overnight and it started snowing so heavy that there was little visibility and the temperature dropped to 30F below Windshield. Fourteen of us hiking the trail and the storm took us by surprise. We just didn't have the right gear for these conditions. We were set up for fall hiking and camping, not winter camping and with 30 below zero with white out conditions and high winds, we soon started to experience hypothermia and opted to evacuate the mountain. Couldn't see the trail signs, so staying on the trail going down the mountain was treacherous. The hike was the Lion's head trail. https://youtu.be/LeyJ1m0zzng. I learned lessons from this hike and have a great memory of the adventure. :) Be prepared!

Terry Richardson pioneered using point and shoots to shoot major ad campaigns since 1982. He has been doing this for years. He is quite controversial as well. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terry_Richardson Like many others I know in photography world, I can shoot with ANY type of camera and get really good images. Its about the image, not the equipment to me. I personally love point and shoot cameras. I love my Sony Rx100. It is almost the perfect point and shoot camera for me. Nice article and great job Sofi!!

danieladougan: FFS Sony, will you ever add a real flippy screen?

Love the Sony A99MKII articulated screen. Best screen in the industry in my humble opinion.

Savannah0986: Gosh, that's the first we've heard about the D850 here on DPReview ... NOT!!

What next? A lengthy article about how nice the strap is? Meanderings (fully illustrated of course) about its original packaging? Personally I'd like to hear more about its shutter button, I mean, does it get wet in the rain? There's scope for so many more D850 articles.

Savannah.

Sony A mount article would be awesome.
