Kwick1: Barney, your spec sheeet says it doesn't have image stabilization. It does have in-body stabilization, at least for video. To be confirmed for stills.

Hmmm, both B&H and Gordon Laing at Camera Labs say it does. For video.

Image stabilization = No? You sure about that DP Review?

I agree with the comment that this truly isn't Virtual Reality. Until a true Holodeck is developed, where all of your senses are used and it is truly immersive, we won't have VR. We just have 360 video, and crappy quality video at that.

If I was going for versatility, it would be the 14-140 on my Panasonic G85. But my desert island lens is the 50/1.2L on my Canon 6D. That lens is magic to me.

Wow, I was drooling over this camera, but I clicked on the first photo of the girl in the umbrella and OMG the noise! And it was only shot at ISO 800. Look at the eaves of the roofs on either side of her at 100%. Seriously disappointing. Between that and the autofocus performance, I guess I'll wait for version 2.

I really wish Pentax would release a digital version of the LX. That was such a wonderful camera. Small and powerful.

Albert Valentino: Looks great. What I do not understand is the lack of an Exposure Comp dial

There is one. It's the back dial. Just assign it to that function and you're all set.

Sorry, Barney, but this is kind of a ridiculous review. You're trying to use a rangefinder camera like you would a mirrorless camera, then complaining when it doesn't act like an a6500. No wonder you didn't like it that much.

On article DJI reportedly takes majority stake in Hasselblad (191 comments in total)
In reply to:

zilver: I think people are missing the big picture, this is not about country names, rather Hasselblad unexpectedly have a huge hit on their hand with the X1D (UK Hassy manager said they received 30,000 worldwide pre-orders expecting only 3,000) but they haven't stockpiled enough cash to meet the production quickly. Rather than losing their golden comeback opportunity, they are converting their shares to their cash rich supply chain associate DJI to grow their facilities, in time benefiting themselves, DJI, shareholders and customers. Simple business, not selling out and nothing to be sad about.

I agree. What on earth is a sensible observation doing here on DP Review? :-)

In reply to:

TheDarmok74: I was going to say they try the same thing as with the RX100IV: much more money for a little more speed but then: OIS and touch-screen? Why? Are they listening to their customers? Kudos! Still, € 1700 is a lot for a body only.

They DID listen to their customers. Virtually every review about the a6000 and a6300 mentioned the lack of touchscreen, lack of in-body IS as negatives. Now they've solved them. Plus they've addressed the complex menus, apparently, which was another user negative.

fotomotovfr: I wonder how many get the MST3000 reference?

Well played sirs, well played. :)

I wonder if any of them know it's still trademarked...and coming back.

On article Ultra-compact: Sony Cyber-shot RX1R II review (581 comments in total)
In reply to:

tim fisher46: There are two further issues no one has thus mentioned (I may be wrong as there are almost 600 comments)

1) the a7r shutter curtain failed after 12 months on mine. Sony said their shutter curtains are NOT covered under the warranty agreement, regardless if the camera's age.

Sony will not deal direct with repairs from photographers in the UK, it had to be sent to a 3rd party who then failed to fix it and had Sony do the repair. That 3rd party cost me £40 for the pleasure of being told they do not fix broken shutter curtains, only Sony do that even after being told the Curtiss was in several pieces.

2) I pair up my a7r with the lovely Zeiss Biogon ZM 35mm f2.0 ( great on the M240) and at smaller apertures, say 11 or 13, there is an almost lenticular vignetting effect mid image, I will run out an example and send a link to illustrate this later. Images are uncorrectable and thus unusable.

Thus, my experience with the a7r is not all it it pertains to be, forewarned is forearmed.

They probably weren't mentioned because this isn't an A7R review. Two completely different shutter mechanisms.

DanielVavrecka: For the price of these you really should consider Peak Design's Everyday Messenger bag. Awesome features and quality.

Because Peak Design's may be the ugliest camera bags ever made.

And yet again, DPReview won't ask a direct question that's all over the forums and unanswered by Sigma: will the new 1.8 zooms work on the APS-H model? Of course pricing and availability is also a great unknown.

In reply to:

3Bild: Bought a 32GB card that will not let me use 100 MBit codecs/formats.
How can one tell what is working or not. I am really confused.
What IS working, Sandisk SDSDXPB-032G-A46 or other models?

I will not buy a new card unless I am absolutely sure it will work and be able to us all of the cameras features.

Look at the memory card chart at the beginning of this review.
