  • Commented on Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 Review preview

    If ever a non Cankion camera was gonna be DPReview gold, it would be the GH4.
    I predict the same "fate" for the A7s.
    And the two new Canikons, the D750 and the 7D2.

    We've been blessed over the...

  • Virtual, Phil.
    These days we call imaginary things "virtual".
    Or "e-". And sometimes "i-" and very occasionally 'd'.
    :-)

  • If all six options are appropriate then the answer is the smallest of the six.

    THe question does not ask which sensors are appropriate for enthusiast.
    It asks what is the smallest sensor...

  • 23.1% are android phone voters who's missing button mixed up the stats. ;-)

  • Well then I think we can safely assume the DPR staff disdain Android phone cameras.

  • "I have a friend who makes photographic art with her camera phone and a friend who considers his 5X7 film cameras to be the "real" camera suitable for serious photography. Moreover, the phone...

  • Or they could just buy someone else's sensor or get in bed with another sensor manufacturer.

    Seems to work for Nikon.
    There's lots of other stuff that may not be working for Nikon, of course, but...

  • What an awesome way to make sure your next big thing is ignored.

    What was the point?

    Is this the Japanese way of saying, we have nothing new, we don't expect to have anything new, and if we did...

  • To me it only makes sense.
    Camera companies can't rely on mass sales anymore, so they have to sell stuff with higher perceived (or actual) value.

    MF sensors are now getting cheap (comparatively)...

  • To me MF only makes sense.

    MF meets that requirement.
    MF is a way to get...

  • There's nothing magic about 135 format if that is what you mean by FF. (I use an M43 and an APS-C , but I've left the sensor whole on both, so I think they qualify as full frame. They're certainly...

  • Fuji.
    That's my bet.
    Their president or CEO talked about full frame, but if you have to make a whole new range of lenses, why not make them MF sized.

    FF is quite common, you want to stand out and...

  • So what is the sensor size that will best allow you to meet those criteria?
    Pretend you are an enthusiast, (it you aren't actually an enthusiast) an work out based on what is available today, what...

  • Photomonkey - Sigma is getting tons of buzz.
    Half the internet is comparing the new 50 with Zeiss and saying in many respects their close to parity.
    That's serious buzz.
    I reckon Sigma need to make...

  • In other words - we're really surprised about how well that 7D2 was received...

    We didn't realise that people other than pros, doctors and dentists wanted to shoot birds or sport.
    You can't afford...

  • "Aimed at enthusiasts and first-time full-frame buyers (who like fishing, apparently) the D750 offers a 24mm FX-format CMOS"

    While I understand that a 135 sized sensor is 35x24mm usually people...

  • Yeah the f3.5-5.6 lenses are smaller as would be a contantst f/4, but assuming the old DX sensor is a stop lower perfromance DX 70-200 equivilants realy need to be f2 or f/1.8 to get similar...

  • Yes you see them, but people are apparently not buying ew ones.
    There were some years, when DSLRs first got affordable that threir sales were going up.
    Now most people have their digital rebel or...
