On article OPPO to announce 5x zoom smartphone technology at MWC (59 comments in total)

When this makes it into widespread smartphone production then I can finally retire the Canon ELPH 350HS; the lack of "optical" zoom is the only thing holding me back from switching completely to smartphone camera for casual snapshooting. Just my opinion, I think this will be the final nail in the 1/2.3" sensor point-and-shoot market.

Will they offer a "Kodachrome emulsion" shooting mode with the camera function?😀

On article Throwback Thursday: the Nikon D80 (241 comments in total)

The D80 was my first "real" digital camera. To this day I still prefer the low ISO colors from the D80 over the colors from my subsequent D5100 and D3300. In the end Nikon was not making a DSLR I wanted, so I've moved on temporarily to Sony A65 until I decide if I even need or want a DSLR platform. Sensor technology is so improved since the D80 I might one day only need something like a Sony RX100III or RX100IV.

Another blow for Nikon's languishing Nikon 1 line of mirrorless cameras.

It's sure a great time to be a consumer of all this wonderful technology.

On article Nikon D5600 sample gallery (164 comments in total)

With the camera industry in overall decline I have to wonder how much longer the DX bodies will be a cash cow for Nikon, especially with small incremental enhancements on new releases. Some out there don't see the need for a D5600 when their D5200 does most everything they want. Introducing a camera like the D5600 with minor tweaks here and there is becoming old hat for Nikon, but something potentially "revolutionary" like the DL series is a year overdue. Nikon has lost its way IMHO.

I marvel at how "innovative" Nikon was then, yet now the Company is a year behind on three 1" sensor cameras (DL) since the initial announcement. Maybe it is time for Nikon to scrap all other lines and focus solely on full-frame DSLRs since the traditional camera industry is contracting anyway. There is no shame in Nikon becoming a niche company.

Let me guess, do you have a green or yellow "O" decal on the back window of your car? (for those of you who don't know, it's the Oregon Ducks, not Obama logo).

On article CES 2017: hands-on with the Canon PowerShot G9 X II (193 comments in total)

So many people bashing this camera. Canon offers us something like four options in 1" sensor compacts. Surely if none of the four offerings tick enough of our boxes then there are numerous Panasonic and Sony options. Ten years ago we would've drooled over the G9XII, but now it is rubbish. First world problems and dilemmas.

marc petzold: I can't work with such a small, bad eyecup and especially dim, small pentamirror OVF....for instance, a very old (2006) D80 Nikon OVF is a revelation against these D3x00 & D5x00 series, and further evolved into the D90, D7x00 series then. (100% Viewfinder since the D7000, 2010) A friend does have a D3100, it's OVF is even more tiny then my 2006 Nikon D40, for real. Can't speak for the current D3x00/D5x00, but i need at least a OVF 95% like the D80/D90 to work with - and a pentaprism, not dim pentamirror Viewfinder. The absent of a 2nd dial would also a dealbreaker for myself, one can't simply adjust aperture & shutterspeed faster then with 2 dials into M Mode.

But i'd guess the D5600 would work for many Users - very good IQ into it's class (perhaps the best then) and a small, slim Body, would work great, especially for 1st timers or delicate women hands. ;-)

I agree. I gave up my D3300 and D5100. The pentamirror finder just doesn't cut it for my middle-age eyes.

Wish it had an EVF, but that would then make it a thicker body.

digitallollygag: I don't own this or any RX100 series camera, but I see so many people comparing it to the Canon G7XII. How can anyone compare the third, fourth, and fifth iterations of the RX100 with a camera that has no EVF? With 315+ days of sunshine per year where I live, a camera without an OVF/EVF is a deal-breaker for me. Bravo Sony, for the pop-up EVF.

tkbslc - that's my point, I can't see much of anything on my smartphone display in bright sunlight, so why would I want a G7XII? Do you have any idea how bright the midday sun is in the Mojave Desert?
