Chris62: Another brick in the wall. To large and to heavy to keep everyday in pocket.
I prefer small stone that can be always with me so I am not impressed this new proposal.
CaNikon keep this line but many customers expect good proposals in mirrorless class - smaller body, lens and decent evf.
M5 looks nice but parameters similar to 4 years old Samsung NX30.
I expect more from Canon/Nikon. why they slow down technological innovations?
I think it is their politic only. Every year they can add small thing and marketing has new argument for new model.
In reality it is old model + one or twoo small improvements.

DSLRs selling well, but why?
Nikon does not offer any MIrrorless camera with D7200 picture quality.
Canon offers M5 and M6 but no lens to this system - using mirrorles with DSLR large lens is stupid idea.
Strong argumentfor CaNikon is using of many accesories possibility many lens flashes whatever it means development
Why it is limited for mirrorless?
As I said it is a politic.
It looks like not custmers needs are important but it is what producer prefers to produce.

Mayby Sony A* line will change it who knows.

tvstaff: My 1DX MKII takes much better pictures. ;)

And this 1DX you have always in pocket? Wow!
I have Pansonic LX-7 small as smartphone but sensor is larger and lens F1,4-F2,3 for range 22-90 (for 16:9 aspecr ratio).
My smartphone is still very efficient and very cheap S5 neo.

Chris62: I did it many years ago when X100 wasunpresent on the market.
Samsung NX 16/F2,4; 30/f2 and 45/F1,8 is very useful set and works till now.
It is a pitty that so nice system is cancelled.

I did not mention 20/F2,8 which is 30 mm eqv, because I do not have this lens.
Having 16/f2,4 we can get 35 mm doing a crop (28 MP great sensor till today allows for that)
If instead of 20/F2,8 Samsung did 20-22/F1,8 than Ok.
But F2,8 is so close F3,5 from kit lens so having power zoom 16-50 there is no reason to buy 20/F2,8.

In reply to:

Chris62: 8k?
4k is not a standard still many people like FHD and they want 8k?
They should improove small sensor compact cameras picture quality there is a lot to do.

Stylus 1/1s vanished from th market.
Could be good if a new version will occure with lens 24-600.

Chris62: I've spend few days in the mountains.
For picture taking I took my NX30 + 3 pancakes (16/f2,4; 30/F2 and 45/f1,8).
For tele needs I took system zoom 50-200.
What about other tourists?
Few people used DSLR with kit lens.
The rest used smartphones.
And I met two girls from Thailand - they asked me take them a photo - they used fuji X-E1 - to heavy for me.
I never will buy heavy DSLR for touristic using (IMO it is camera for people doing photography ) - and you? Do you want carry so heavy camera and lens?
I really do not understand why Nikon (and canon too) do not offer any competitive product for Sony A7.

If we take into consideration a zoom lens OK, A7 becomes also big (but much smaller and lighter still).
But there are lens named pancakes and such lens together with A7 makes the camera very small as small as my Samsung NX or Sony A6500 with 16/F2,8.
For active people small light and so expensive vamera is optimal.
Would you like have a crash on mountain bicykle and crash heavy expensive nikon and lens?

OK Sony do not offer pancakes for A7 why? I do not know.
This is the reason I keep NX pancakes system.

In reply to:

Chris62: The strange thing, but over 2 years older Samsung NX bodies are still very competitive and NX1 is even much better.

Such company as Canon this year should present in such camera the sensor 30 MP BSI CMOS, 4k, set of 5 pancake lens, top AF system, the best viewfinder and screen and be the best specified mirrorless on the marked.
Big disappoitment from my side.

Cameras still works and for now no better options even 3 years after.
Not always better products from technical point of view are more popular than worse products.
No matter the point is that todays' cameras offer limited technology and it is not good time to buy any.
In example why MFT cameras producers do not use BSI CMOS sensors?
This technology Samsung used in 2014 and stilll no camera APS-C BSI CMOS on the market,
FF yes great Sony in A7 R2 and small 1" sensor is used in many cameras.

On article Google Pixel XL camera review (200 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sergey Borachev: The Samsung S7 is a top smartphone, bought by millions, has been out for 10 months and nearly due for an upgrade, but is for some reason not reviewed by DPReview?

It has a more consistent performance across all areas, unlike this Pixel, based on various tests, including DXOMark, which rated its camera at 88 compared to the Pixel's 89 ! The Pixel was found slightly better mainly in its HDR and colour saturation, but weaker in AF, video, flare control and camera features like stitching and camera operational control.

In other non-camera areas, S7 is clearly ahead, e.g. MicroSD card, better weather sealing, display resolution, wireless charging, abundance of accessories, support, price, .... ....

Can we expect a review before the S8 is announced? Thanks Lars.

Maybe it is but I do not see much practical advantages over my5times cheaper S5 Neo.
The only smartphone I would change S5 Neo is Note 4 - there is still battery and SD card changing possible and note 4 is larger what is big pros for me because I use smartphne in the car as a navi.

In reply to:

snapa: To all the people who can not figure out why Google did not offer a microSD slot, here is the answer: They would not be able to charge $200 more for the extra internal memory in the phone. That will make them a LOT of money! It seems like a pretty straightforward business decision to me.

People who can afford this phone, can and WILL get the 128GB vs the 32GB version if they really need it. It is a very nice phone with a GREAT camera, and that Google assistant feature will make it my next phone. I want a smaller 5 inch screen, so this phone seems perfect for me, with the 32GB memory ;)

I do not agree - my S5 neo is great smartfon.
Works as navigation, videorecoreder during car driving, gives information about engine parameters (temperatures, voltage, pressures and more) also works as a camera when I do not need Dx sensor and playing chess.
Th eonly remark I have is it doesnt make a coffee.
But this unit works fast and without any problems internet lte is fast, video/audio players without isses and what is important is waterproofed, I can change the battery and SD card (I use 128 GB) and for me 32 GB is not enough - for navigation I have all Europe maps on the SD and a lot of music and movies too. I am glad GPS works fine (in former Galaxy S2 GPS was terrible)
The best thing is I paid ca 170$ for this smartphone and I do not understand why people pay 4 times more for units where there is no battery or SD changing possibility.
Android I use is 5.x Lolipop with TW. System is 100% stable since the begening.

On article 2017 Roundup: Enthusiast Long Zoom Cameras (278 comments in total)
In reply to:

Chris62: I think in this category the most important can be the longest zoom or the smallest size.
How to compare TZ100 to RX10?
These cameras are predicted for different people needs.
If somebody accept bulky camera but with better ergonomy and lonfger zoom too than ZS100 is not attractive for him - am I right?
The price included to evaluation?
OK, but it does not mean the FZ1000 is the best in "power" category.

Such roundups shold have three categories
1. Econo - for people who want to buy as cheap as possible
2. Power - for people who do not care for the price
3 Optimised - balance between price and specification because not always the most expensive gear is optimal to buy.
I. e. some features can be second priority and not important for everybody.

My tip from this roundup is Sony RX10 III. Sharp lens in 24-600 range is very big advantage and I think for low light we need camera with larger sensor and faster lens so RX10 mk2 with constant F2,8 is not good choice for such scenes anyhow.

What do you mean" twice as good as"?
Sony offers longer zoom and faster lens - sharper lens.
Is it enough to say twice or 30%?
FZ2500 is also much more expensive than FZ1000.
And even you pay 50% less price for FZ how do you use it when you want to use 600 mm/F4?

OK for me the price is also high - even 4 times higher than for i.e. a guy from USA because currency value in my country is more than 4 times weaker so it means I need 4 times more time to work and earn money for any goods.
Can you imagine RX10mk3 price as 7000$?
How much time USA guys work for 7000$
And there are countries wher people within one year of working do not earn enough money to buy such camera.
Why?
