On article Canon EOS R review (2214 comments in total)

Carey, thanks for an honest review of a camera a lots of folks were hoping would get Canon back on the pitch. Not yet I'd guess. The 'M-Fn Bar' issue is amazing to me, fundamental flaws should never, never get past well select and managed beta focus groups. Wow, very hard to get past this from a company that knows better. A painful misstep!

On article Throwback Thursday: Fujifilm F10 (124 comments in total)

The small f series Finepix cameras were a joy to use and would often produce amazing results especially the f30 and the f31fd. I don't think that in low light situations they had any real competition. You thought so too, "But you just can't take away from Fuji the fact that - at this moment in time - this unassuming little 6MP camera still sets the benchmark for image quality in the entire compact sector. It's also a surprisingly reliable 'point and shoot' model with excellent color and accurate focus/metering in most circumstances." I miss my f31!

All are members of the Fredrich VonNikon family, keep a very low profile.

On article Nikon D850 vs Sony a7R III: Which is best? (1100 comments in total)
In reply to:

Steve W: I think what is bothering the Nikon fans is that Nikon and Canon are not forcing Sony to become a DSLR maker with an OVF to become a camera manufacturer but Sony is forcing Nikon and Canon to become mirrorless camera makers to stay viable.

Personally I shoot Canon and Sony, and yes the ability to use Canon lenses on my Sony bodies did influence this since I have shot Canon for a long time and own quite a bit of very nice L glass. The A9 and A7RIII have made that even more viable.

The D850 is a greate camera. When I was looking at adding > 40 Mpixels the 5DSR was not compelling and the A7Rx family offered a lot and was a lower barrier to entry than going Nikon. IBIS to me is a big plus for Sony and they are rapidly improving their other short comings. I like both EVF and OVF, each has advantages.

The Nikon fans can at least appreciate that Sony will keep Nikon on its toes and push them to be better with every camera if they want to keep market share.

Supporting data?

On article Fujifilm X100F Review (869 comments in total)

Richard, very nice review, as usual. I've been a Fuji fan since the F30, 31 days and still miss those wonderful little cameras that could produce some amazing results that were like finding a silver dollar under you pillow when you lost a tooth instead of a quarter! There are very few "i make everyone jump for joy" sensors. I wish some would read more carefully or without a critique in mind before they do read. I sure I saw "Output of X-Trans sensor not to everyone's taste" in print. Thanks again for your solid work, always a pleasure.

An interesting time in photography, intersection of several things resulting in a unique accelleration of Moore's Law. We, the consumers, are the winners and that's terrific!

A bit out of focus, not a great result full size. Lens, camera or shooter?

I agree, the incremental improvements we've beening seeing are not classic examlpes of great product planning but more of a process that trickiled improvements into the market. I'm not a fan of the conspiracy theory position but will agree that those companies in JV's and shared technology programs were not letting real competitive forces drive their new product decisions. This is going to be fun to watch over the next couple of years. Good new stuff on the way!
