Considering that there are apps charging $5 per month, I am amazed how this app could stay with just one charge for such long years. I have been using the 1st version for several years and no complain at all. But some people who bought a few months ago might feel differently.
Even though version 1 has all I need, I am buying version 2 just to support the good developers. There are millions of apps in the app store, but the developers like this are rare.

Looks like we are going to use EVFs to edit (Lightroom, Photoshop, etc) and appreciate photographs sooner or later... We don't need a huge 50 inch space then...

Combining with AI and IoT, education could go through an innovation.

mike, that had happened long time ago when calculators were accepted in school tests. The whole point of education is that we let others ( AI, that is, ) do the intelligence and we become a part of nature ;-)

Sony is the new iPhone... unless Canon and Nikon do something significant very quickly, which at this moment is not a possibility (and it is way too late).

Raw-whateve:
Keep refuting, and keep denying.
We’ll see what happens next year.

HowaboutRAW:
I still remember the days... when I bought the first iPhone the first day... Blackberry was never refuted. Even for a few yeas, blackberry was still the King. Yeah, Jeff Bezos and Obama - and so many other CEOs and managers all over the world needed "tactile" response from the keyboard.
While you are arguing about refutation, it will be gone like a dinosaur very soon....

Charlie Jin: Now, we’ll see the same photographs in Instagram. I thought that spotting a location is a part of the art.

The reason why it becomes a part of learning is that "remake"/"copy" requires "some" effort. But this does not.

Sorry. You don't have Cobol and Fortran experiences.
Besides, it says, "Senior". I guess you have to be over 70.

I hope that DP Review "reviews" some of these clip-on lenses (like Olloclip, Moment, etc) and publish the photos actually taken using them. Most photos used for their ads do not have full resolution, and heavily "photoshopped". Even so, I can see some blurry parts around the center (the center looks OK). But I cannot exactly see how bad it is. I need some honest (full resolution) pictures by honest reviewers using all the lenses they offer (Tele lens, wide angle lens, Macro lens etc).

Great humor in the beginning. haha. Thank you for your nice review. It is better to see how the camera is being used in various environments and show the results (and experiences - pros and cons). I just hit the subscribe button in YouTube.

I just wonder what the record company’s response would be if someone distribute their music freely to 400k people (and without any credit for the music). I am sure that they would not be rude to say anything, considering that 400k people kindly listen to their music.

Lots of magnets... Wouldn't it damage USB hard drives?

On article Opinion: the Sony a7 III could be the new Nikon D750 (1233 comments in total)

I am wondering about the "ergonomics" of Sony cameras in general, which dpreview never considers. It's mostly "menu-driven" which I really hate. Can you change/switch to other modes/settings instantly using left and right hands for control buttons ? Or do you have to look at the screen, turn the dials, select the functions and/or click on the screen to do what you want to do ? I am concerned because this camera does not have any control button on the left side. This means that you can do only limited number of things with right hand only and for others you have to dig into the screen menus.

racunseen: My overall score is 73%, because it is crippled camera. Canon crippling strategy is unfair and i cant support this greedy thinking.

Looks like, these days, a camera is crippled if it does not satisfy 4K video implementation. BTW, I don't have a computer, software, or storage to handle 4K video properly. Am I crippled ?
