    The M series is surprisingly popular in Japan, I think they'll keep it alive, at least there.

    One interesting thing I read today: VW sold about 11m cars last year, and Tesla only 367,500, yet Tesla’s market value is higher than that of VW. Maybe the technology gap of Canon and Nikon with...

    I'd say they're just as good, which matches what he said: that it's difficult to find something better.
    Personally I still shoot cDNG because it's sharper, but the super high bitrate is definitely...

    These "rumors" are just wishful thinking and speculation by fanboys. And if they want to create hype, they don't seem to be very good at it: having 4k at 60fps only when using an APS-C crop, and at...

    There are tests from users online claiming that Nikon is doing very nasty line-skipping with the external RAW, which turns these cameras into moire hell

    I'm all for eye-AF as well. I don't use it yet for video, though, because my a6500 only allows it for stills. But my dream camera would have an APS-C sensor recording ~4k BRAW with the DR of the UMP,...

    In a perfect world, I'd only ever use EVF.

    Seeing the image as the camera will record it, and with additional info in form of histogram, waveform, etc, beats all possible EVF downsides for most...

    And on the other side, every year, 40 thousand people die in car accidents in the US, and over 4 million get seriously injured. These don't usually appear in the news anymore, because we got used to...

    Camera rumor sites are fan sites: for months they talk about what they want or hope for, with pure guesswork disguised as if they had any actual information about it. Only around five days before the...

    That's a positive piece of news that actually made me feel bad for Fuji: just after they fix the XT3 (if you believe the early-2020 firmware will truly fix AF issues) they'll be bringing out its...

    These rules are already silly, so I guess it's getting sillier. In the real world, out of scaremonger's brains, drones cause very few accidents. Rational people would ban cars before tightening on...

    Do they really? To me it seems they're pretty happy having very nice >$5000 cameras for pros, and sub-par cheap-ish DSLR offerings that just work for youtubers.

    They launched the 90D last summer...

    I don't have the p6k, but I have the p4k, and my guess was that they were doing something wrong with that particular clip. My measure, then, was that it looks approximately the same when you go to...

    I think they are not selling many of these (Lensrentals blog post with nice 2019 data). A 2% market share would be a win for Sigma or for Leica cameras, but for Nikon it smells like death. And the...

    Too little too late, indeed. Even for people that need to shoot both stills and video with the same camera, the competition is fierce nowadays: Sigma fp, Fuji XT-3, Sony a7RIV, a6400 and a6600,...

    It's taking into account both over and under range, and that's what's making the C700 look so good. Geoff Boyle rated the Alexa to be good up to +5 and -2, and the C700 up to +3.5 and -3.5, which...

    I have a p4k, and it's great, but definitely inferior to the p6k, namely because almost everything is identical but the p6k has 1.5 stops more DR, which I definitely didn't expect but is clear if you...

    Ouch indeed. I'd guess yodabashi sells more cameras, being the retail chain giant it is. But it doesn't look much different over there either... Just one Canon makes the list, and it's an entry-level...

    For me it's exactly the other way around: my a6500 with Sigma 16mm f/1.4 and 56mm f/1.4 is great for stills, I don't need to go for anything bigger and heavier than that; and my p4k is great for...

    I vividly remember my lust over the original 5D when it came out for $3300 in 2005 and I couldn't afford it. I wouldn't use a Canon EOS R today if they gave it to me for free. Same for Nikon and...

    I'm definitely not trying to convince anybody to buy anything. We're discussing the future of camera makers, I think that's relevant.
