Sean Setters: The link you used for the Nauticam Housing for Canon EOS-1DX Mark II is incorrect; it links to the 1D X housing.

Here's the correct link: www.backscatter.com/sku/na-17321.lasso

Thanks!

nick101: When will DPReview get around to including the leafcutter ants in their test process? In fact, why hasn't it happened before now? Money changing hands to protect the reputation of Canikon, I suppose

I'm so glad that someone is keeping track.

Oh we're pro-Sony this week, I think. Or was that last week? I lose track.

MyReality: The confirmation that 360 deg. images will be big in the future? Another threat to traditional photography?

A lot of 'traditional' photographers are adopting 360-degree images in their work.

Dammit, Mark. Also, I forgot to put a virtual door into this gallery. We could be here for a while...

NWT: It was great that DPR was denied a Press Pass, otherwise, this would be a D5 review. Congratulate the festival organizer!

Cdog: What's the next Instagram?
Would love a suggestion preferably not owned by facebook
Seriously, f there's something better out there I'd like to know, I'll switch right now.

Tumblr also allows you to schedule posts and upload images from a desktop browser - imagine that!

I enjoy Tumblr, but it's a very different platform to IG. It is FAR superior in terms of showing off images (and works very well on desktop as well as mobile) but not as effective in terms of building a social presence if you're trying to use it for professional purposes.

I've never liked Instagram for its relative insularity (personally as a casual user I've found that IG posts tend to get seen and mindlessly liked by people I already know, whereas on Tumblr, reposts and likes come from all manner of people from all over the world) but I've also never been a power user of either platform. Just my ¢2.

pkcpga: Nice review and nice looking camera, nice photos, only wish it had a viewfinder. I guess if it did it would be over priced liked the newer rx100's. At this price point it should be a hit for canon. I wonder if the Nikon DL's are using the same Sony sensor or if they're going to use a BSI Sony sensor.

Ah yes you're right.

To the best of my knowledge all of the Sony 1-inch 20MP sensors have been BSI. I'm sure someone will correct me on that if I'm wrong.

Joe Ogiba: Wow, Canon still stuck in the 1080p world unless you want to pay $2K on the XC10 fixed lens 4K UHD camera that looks more like 1080p compared to Sony, Panasonic or Samsung 4K UHD cameras that cost much less.

Pretty sure that the sensor Sony is selling Canon in this generation of PowerShots isn't capable of 4K video.

On article Pentax K-1 Pixel Shift Resolution: Updated Field Test (210 comments in total)
In reply to:

Impulses: Pentax ought to create a LR plugin if Adobe can't be bothered to work on the K1's Pixel Shift development any further... To spare Mac users from Silky, if nothing else.

We're using it on Mac platforms in the DPR office, and it is a real mess, unfortunately. Great when it works but (arguably) the long-standing stability issues make it impractical for a landscape pro used to an LR workflow on a Mac. We're told that ACR support for the K-1 is 'final' but Adobe has a good track record of improving support on the basis of requests and feedback so fingers crossed.

User9362470513: Or alternatively you could buy a Sigma camera with a Foveon sensor and you'd get better resolution without any of the hassle.

You'd be forced to use Sigma's software though, which is even more frustrating to use than SilkyPix ;)

Back in the day, we used to call it 'SillyPix'. It's still horrendously unstable on Macs. A shame, since it's so capable.

In reply to:

johnschafer: I'm sorry, but I'm at the point where I'm done with DPR's very obvious Nikon bias. I really don't want to start a negative rant here. But come on, honestly, I must protest. DPR admits in a separate article of the D5's lowest base ISO dynamic range of any current FF Nikon DSLR. Further, look at FStoppers review of the D5. It is very clear to see the D5 hits its useful limit at ISO25600. Here at DPR if this was a Canon-equivalent pro DSLR, it would be demoted to Silver award. Further, DPR hasn't reviewed a Canon 1D-series in 6 years. Nikon D5 is a Silver award, nothing more.

Our EOS-1D X Mark II review is being worked on as I speak - the D5 was done earlier because Nikon sent us a camera earlier. No bias here, but let me know if you have any questions about our scoring system. I'm also assuming you've thoroughly read the review before commenting, of course.
