Welcome to the modern hyper political climate where everything is racist.

The shots are very good and the results look promising. I would have liked to have seen more practical indoor architectural shots, something a real estate agent would show prospective clients.

Wow. This is so elementary. Do any but complete novices not know to bounce the flash and it's advantages?

I wonder if DPR will get around to review this lens, even though they never tested Nikon's version?

I vote for the flaming Venezuela protestor. For some reason the media are pretty much ignoring that situation.

ewelch: The biggest problem it has is not hardware (although there's plenty of those problems), but that it's from Google. You are not the customer. You are the product Google sells to its customers - advertisers.

True. I saw a segment on Fox New where even with phones with the SIM card removed, in airplane mode and wifi turned off, the phone still tracks your every movement. Then once you power up your phone and connect, guess what, the phone phones it's Google masters and tells them where you have been.

Is it the norm to have such terrible unaltered footage in these modern video contraptions? The key to success seems to be in post production.

It's odd but in many shots the background appears sharp and clear but the subjects are not.

Reminds of that boy who built a clock that actually looked like a bomb then became upset when he faced the consequences.

In a few years they'll want to ban make up as well.

Progress?

Ian: 180mm? Goodbye Canon, I'm leaving you and your lousy, not wide enough 200-400 1.4x behind ;)

The specmanship from Nikon is hilarious!

How dare Nikon offer something wider.

Well that's sad. Would have liked to have seen them stick it out for another year or so. Now it's all pretty much DJI.

Richard Murdey: It's called a trade off. Batteries deteriorate over time. After two years you can have a faster phone that lasts less long, or a slower phone with better battery life. One or the other.

Apple opted to keep the battery life as long as it could over the life of the phone by balancing the clock speed against the fall in battery capacity. In my book that was the right call and a smart move. (And I don't even own an i-anything.)

Yes, but they should have warned customers about this feature. Many probably upgraded their phones thinking new features were slowing it down and their current phone just couldn't keep up.

Interesting. If Apple looses significant laptop market share of the creative crowd, all they will really have left would be phones and tablets.

PhotoKhan: I am dumbfounded they didn't opt for a Leica M10, DPReview's "Camera of the Year" ;)

They want to take pictures, not to be seen taking pictures. :)
