Interesting that none of the scene modes are for Underwater.

In reply to:

nickolas84: We have had similar pixel densities in cellphones for years! Why is it so difficult to deliver this as a consumer product?

Canon better step up their game, otherwise Sony and Samsung will take over!

Yes! Samsung's camera market share is skyrocketing! Wait...what? I guess they got out of the camera business at the top of their game.

Sure wish I could buy one here in the U.S.

Wait - first you say (and show) that it has serious banding issues in backlight, then you meet with Sony Marketing execs and suddenly everything is looking good? Anything for those affiliate dollars, I guess. Wouldn’t want to make Sony mad by doing an honest review.

PhozoKozmos: improving LV-technology is what matters
as it applies to both integrated lens dcams and icl dcams
likewise, it applies to mirror-capable LV dSLR-dcams and non-mirror-(mirrorless)-only dcams

tech for mirrorless-only dcams (integrated-lens or icl) is less demanding as it deals with processing incoming image light full-time

tech for mirror-capable OVF+LV dSLRs is more demanding where dual-optional shooting is available:

▪any AF system during OVF shooting must act within shorter timeframe part-time when mirror provides light path to AF sensor

▪any AF system during LV (non-mirror/mirror-up/mirrorless-only) shooting has the luxury of full-timeframe when light is "always" available to image sensor, where either PDAF or CDAF is being used

mfrs, like Canon, can do both AF (fast OVF or fast LV), have the advantage

mfrs, like Canon, have both AF (PDAF and CDAF) on image sensor*, have the advantage

Canon, uniquely has both proprietary ExpSimLV AF and Aperture stop-down LV-AF, has advantage

What the heck is an "icl dcam"?

And if you're complaining about Live View, there is no such term in mirrorless. It's just an electronic viewfinder. And if you think it blacks out, you've obviously never tried the A9.

On article Hands-on with the Sony a7 III (584 comments in total)

The fact that the AF points don't light up is a deal-breaker for me. That, plus when you hold the grip, my knuckles bump up against the 24-105 lens. There's not much room between the grip and the lens.

Canon finally realized, like Sony, that money is money, no matter which camera line it comes from.

In reply to:

BarnET: For the price of this lens you could buy a X-T20/X-E3 with not one but 2 almost comparable zooms.

X-T20 +18-55 f2.8-4 = 1199
55-200 F3.5-4.8 = 699

And then people call Fujinon lenses expensive

Fuji is not full frame. APS-C.

But how does it work with adapted Canon lenses?

I just ordered the Olympus 40-150 2.8. Amazing lens, but now this...

Panny is compatible with Dual IS 2 in my G85, but the Oly is constant 2.8. Panny has longer reach and is lighter (slightly - 1.44lbs vs 1.67).

Decisions decisions.

Hmmmm. Amazon shows Body Only at $2199, not $1999 like it says in your article.

Sadly, no improvement in autofocus, I do like the handheld hi-res though.

On article Fujifilm X-H1 Review (1570 comments in total)

The lack of an exposure compensation dial is a deal-breaker for me. And a bigger grip, extra weight, but no larger battery? Why? Missed opportunity, in my opinion.

Just regular Dual IS? Not Dual IS 2?

Ridiculous conclusion. Goes against your own grading system. "Scoring is relative only to the other cameras in the same category.". Well, the camera in this category is the EM1 II, and it got Gold.

On article 2017 Roundup: Consumer Long Zoom Compacts (186 comments in total)
In reply to:

Yoopershooter: Cameras have been made over 100 years and no one can or will not produce one without basic deficiencies? Consumers have to settle for the best of the worst.
Why will not one manufacturer take the bull by the horns?
It is not hard to figure out what the consumer wants...just ask! Just looking at camera reviews and correct the problems. Consumers are asked to spend a lot of $$$$ for cameras and I do not think it is wrong to expect our $$$$ worth. I say again,"If they cannot sell the product, they will wrap it in Baloney and sell the Baloney. ".
I have spent a couple weeks researching cameras and cannot find what I want within by budget, which is under $1000 and that to me is ridiculous.
I am searching for primarily an action camera for events my five grandchildren are or will be in. Events as Baseball, Track, Soccer, Football, Gymnastics and Basketball and ???.
Any advice or opinions? Thank You.

Get a Sony A6000 kit with the standard plus 55-200 zoom. Perfect for action, huge sensor (compared to these) and great image quality. Small, light kit and can be had for well under $1000, especially with the sales on now. Gordon at Cameralabs shot the Tour de France with it and it performed brilliantly.

Nice to see you stole my idea after my interview.
