Kodak Alaris are still around.

In reply to:

Class A: A "disappointment" is the result of expectations not being met. What were your expectations?

That the camera is somehow innovative? You don't know in what way, but it needs to be innovative somehow?

You write that Canon has not been innovative for 10 years now, but you are still living through a "big disappointment" because they have failed to be innovative (showing "reinvention") again? Were 10 years not enough to adjust your expectations?

You speak of a "big disappointment" but you just go on and on how great the camera is. Your only point seems to be that you would have liked to have seen the camera two years earlier.

So Canon should not have released this camera because it is "too late anyhow"?

I have to ask: Has DPReview now descended to the level of using click-bait article headlines? I have never seen such an example of the opposite of a "Damning with faint praise". What is this? A "Praise with faint damning"?

Canon are very slow to innovative and have been playing catch-up instead leading for many, many years now. I blame leadership, not the R&D team. Look how well leadership worked at Kodak/Polaroid before they went under. Take risks Canon (big steps please) instead of slowly, slowly does it (no more little steps).

This was on PetaPixel two days ago. I feel DP is copying the articles and colour scheme of PP.

BlueBomberTurbo: The SpyderCHECKR chart's layout is off from the standard. Looks like you'll be stuck using Spyder's own software with it...

And Spyder's software really s*x!

Why is it DPreview seem to copy PetaPixels stories and now the go the white look like PP???

Manfrotto's current design always feels a bit dodgy to use.

CameraLabTester: Pocket camera with a Full Frame chemical sensor.

Megapixels open to your choice [depending on scanner ability].

A pristine MJ:]ii is on my desk ready to roll loaded with Velvia.

My only anxiety is the availability of the batteries. Eveready please please don't stop producing the power supply for this gem. As you can see, there is no battery grip for this camera, it would be swallowed up inside it...

.

Buy a rechargeable CR123 battery and charger from ThieveBay. I did for my Contax G2 (uses CR2 though).

In reply to:

electrophoto: So it performs worse than an a6000, has no EVF, sluggish performance, has a very limited and not really special lens collection, needs an adapter to make use any good lenses... has only one really not so good control dial...

I think it's canon's attempt at: "hey, look nikon, we have an APS-C mirrorless interchangeable lens camera".

complete fail.

Sounds like a car that pulls to the right, wipers work most of the time and is under powered...but it still is a good car because it has a brand name on it!
