It is becoming increasingly difficult to differentiate between these OEM vendors on hardware camera performance. As game changers continue to be in software instead hardware, hopeful these set of hardware is competent enough to benefit from future software development Google doles out.

On article DPReview TV Episode 1: Sony a7 III review (347 comments in total)

I am a great fan of Chris and Jordan's shows on youtube. Always loved their reviews, in depth without being overbearing, lively without being comical. This is an excellent development. Congratulations on joining force with Dpreview!

On article Why smartphone cameras are blowing our minds (448 comments in total)

Really great article. Very well written and has great depth.

I think what we need to think about isn't what Smart Phone is doing right, but rather what real cameras are doing wrong. All of the computational photography "tricks" can be done on a large sensor camera but all of the traditional camera companies are either unable or unwilling to implement. Everyone is chasing larger sensor, brighter lens, faster AF instead adding useful software programs into the camera.

The future of photography is a combination of software and hardware. The innovation from past few years for smart phone is a perfect argument for this. For as long as traditional photography vendors are unwilling to realize this, smart phone camera will continue to leap forward in results. We as photographers needs to have better understanding of technology and not beholden-ed to our idea what photography should be.

Is this the same guy that said Adobe will never abandon standalone product without perpetual license? Or was that fake news?

In light of Canon's most recent comments, I am reminded of this article I read a while back:

http://mashable.com/2012/01/20/kodak-digital-missteps/

Some parallels dare I say?

In reply to:

Richard Schumer: It appears to me that Mr. Maeda identifies the intended buyers of this line of cameras to be photojournalists , not advanced amateurs. For PJs to require similar pixel-level quality to APS sized sensors indicates to me PJs want to be able to crop severely and that is more important than dynamic range.

To an artist, the opposite might be true, but artists are not their intended target.

There is nothing to see here. Move on now... You are not the intended audience for Canon's product.

"However I get the feeling that users in the US don’t really take a liking to small cameras. That’s just my sense. "

Really? I like my A7 just fine thank you. I just didn't like what Canon had to offer in that segment. To think I was a loyal customer with Canon for over 30 years.

In reply to:

67gtonr: I have been using my EOS M for over 1 1/2 years without issue, I have been following any posts about the system online and in the EOS M Forum here and have not once come across a post about needing to have an M repaired for something under warranty, no overheating when taking video, no banding, no oil or dust on the sensor, no shutter slap issues, etc. I am confident that this iteration will also have the high quality build of its predecessors.

How about: "If you never use it, you will never need to repair it!"

Next year, Canon will upgrade this model with a red mounting ring for 200 dollars more. Oh wait, not for US customers...

Next year, this service will launch with a RED Logo and they will charge twice as much!

That is some expensive white paint they are using! Worthy of a $150 price bump! NOT!

This is how to detect cheaters.

1). All votes should appear evenly distributed in a Gaussian manner.
2). Shouldn't have extraordinary number of votes. (i.e. if average votes for all pictures should 16, it should be 16)
