On article Should I buy a Canon EOS 6D Mark II? (361 comments in total)

If you have to ask someone whether to spend that much money for a camera, you're probably better off not spending.

It may be good looking for someone who never cared for cameras, but for those who do, it's just an overpriced fashion statement.

Vinspena: OMG Nikon... Here is how you should do your mirrorless cameras:

1. Release 2 full-frame models!
2.Price one at $1,500 the other at $2,000.
3. $1,500 matches the feature-set of the D610 (or its replacement)
4. $2,000 matches the feature-set of the D750 (or its replacement)
5. Make sure to have 4 lenses at launch two of them must be a standard kit lens (one standard zoom the other is a pancake prime lens)
6. THE FLANGE BACK DISTANCE SHOULD BE SHORTER THAN THE SONY'S FF MIRRORLESS CAMERAS!!! THIS WILL BE YOUR ULTIMATE ADVANTAGE BECAUSE SONY CANNOT CHANGE THIS WITH A NEW MODEL. THIS CAN ALLOW YOUR CAMERAS TO BE SMALLER AND LIGHTER THAN SONY'S!

Too much wishful thinking

I don't mind Nikon bringing out posters and trinkets to celebrate their 100th anniversary. But Nikon's a camera company. They should be bringing out a camera first, trinkets later.

On article Leica TL2 first impressions (374 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dan DeLion: Second rate camera with pedestrian lenses. The funny part is that many (not all) Leica owners buy for status and because of the excessive cost. They hope the Leica will set them apart from the masses by indicating their good taste and deep pockets. They never recognize that their purchase IDs them as fools. But, hell, they did file the edges down. – That’s got to be worth something?

And I'm sure all your purchases are unarguably intelligent.

ttran88: Samsung is the smartest of the bunch. Get out while you can, this industry as a whole is in a decline. Pentax, Nikon and Panasonic are all rumored to be in crap 💩.

Maybe Nikon, Canon, Ricoh, Sony, and Panasanic should all get smart and follow Samsung.

I remember when NX1 was released, it was touted as D400 that Nikon should have released but was released by Samsung instead.

Samsung could have owned the market now, had they continued.
They entered too early and exited too early.

On article Sony a9 Full Review: Mirrorless Redefined (2721 comments in total)
In reply to:

35mmBlueSky: Tried it in the store alongside the D500, egonomics and build quality is way better with the D500, plus as soon as you put any decent sized lens on it, the balance and handling are way off compared to the D500. I would imagine Nikon D5 would be far better for the audience it's targeting. Decent specs on paper though.

>photenth
Good thought. Overall balance of body + lens is more important in shooting than what most people think.

Interesting camera, but it can never be my main. Just an alternative.

On article How do you know you need a new camera? (409 comments in total)

Just purchase what you want, when you want, at a price range you willing to pay for. And simply avoid purchasing anything unless all those conditions are met.

Jose Ernesto Passos: Nikon and Canon could develop a new line of Full frame cameras mirrorless with a strategy similar to what Nikon is doing with new cards, The Nikon D5 is offered in two version one with two XQD and the second with two CF card slots. They could develop two versions of a new mirrorless Full Frame, one version compatible with the current lenses and another with a new type of mount that could be used for new lenses designed to optimize them for a mirrorless body. Is this possible as a solution?

>That's the danger of companies being in denial of changes that are afoot, and of protecting their "core business", regardless of the signs of change. In the case of Canon and Nikon, that "core business" is DSLRs.

Core business of Canon and Nikon isn't DSLRs (especially for Canon). They're just dominant in DSLR market. And they're not denying changes. They're just carefully (perhaps too carefully) deciding their next strategy, which may be mirrorless, or something different all together.

You keep on insisting that mirrorless is the prime candidate for cannibalizing DSLRs. Mirrorless is already showing signs of becoming 'old tech'. I have a feeling that in a few years, argument of 'DSLRs or mirrorless' will be irrelevant, with ILCs aimed at consumers gone.

Xentinus: Not to cannibalize their DSLR sales, letting another company to do that, is one of the major mistakes of Canikon.
Last 10-15 years, many people I know switched from Canon to Nikon. But since the announcement of a6000 and full-frame Sony mirrorless cameras, people started switching from Nikon to Canon. Because they are able to use awesome Canon glasses on their Sony cameras, which have the best sensor available.
So when some people were thinking it will affect Canon more than Nikon, I knew they were wrong, cause even I wanted to switch from Nikon to Canon and use Sony as a second body.
Sony stole Nikon users directly and indirectly. Especially wedding photographers.

Nikon partnering with Samsung? No way. Nikon is too conservative (good or bad) to make such a move.

I know already that Apple makes desktop computers, laptops, tablets, watches, etc. None of them would have accounted for much without the success of iPhone. Had Apple gone ahead with iPad first, instead of iPhone, would they have been successful?

Kodak's decision to 'protect film' and 'didn't see where technology was headed' are only one sided view. Kodak probably knew where digital technology was headed. They just realized that they couldn't be a part of what they had pioneered, so they had to go ahead with what they could do, which was to 'protect film', even though they knew that it will come to an end.

And about Kodak. Kodak definitely didn't resist digital. They were forerunners. Early DSLRs were Kodaks, based on Nikon/Canon bodies. Kodak's digital cameras were doing fine until Nikon and Canon started producing DSLRs all on their own. Kodak didn't have (or rather lost) first -hand knowledge in camera body manufacturing, just digital processing units. So when Nikon and Canon (who had first -hand knowledge in camera body manufacturing) acquired know-how on digital processing units as well, Kodak didn't have a chance. Kodak simply cannibalized itself to extinction.

You don't seem to understand either. Had iPhone failed, Apple probably would have gone under, since they would only have iPods to show for.

As I stated earlier, for cannibalization to work, the new product MUST surpass the old. DSLRs are the old product, that's certain. But are mirrorless the new product that will surpass DSLRs? Five years ago, I would have said that mirrorless definitely is the future worth investing in. Now, I'm not that certain. I have a feeling that there will soon be an all new digital device that will make all dedicated cameras obsolete.

Talks about Jobs and cannibalization is getting a little boring. Cannibalizing cuts both ways, and is deemed successful only when a new product surpass the old. And no one can guarantee such success. There are countless new products that failed to surpass the old, to a point of bringing down what were once successful companies. What would have people said if iPhone didn't take off? Jobs would have been slammed for 'Killing a goose laying golden eggs' or for 'Trying to fix things that weren't broken'.

There soon will be a device that will go to work and take vacations instead of you, so you can just stay at home and do nothing.

There soon may be a device that can live your life instead of you, so you can just die early.

There soon may be a device that can be born instead of you, so you don't even have to be born.

grock: As much as I would love Canon to develop a full frame mirrorless, if i can't use my current canon lenses on it anyway, I don't see any reason why I'd buy a first-gen canon mirrorless over anything that Sony has to offer if I'm going to have to invest in a new system anyway.

Build lens line-up slowly? For every camera body introduced, there's about a thousand 'But there's no decent lens' threads created these days.

That's the major problem that both Nikon and Canon face. Introducing all-new system that has no compatibility with legacy system is in order, but what will convince existing users to switch to that all-new system and deter considering offerings from other manufacturers?
