CameraLabTester: Barely a week into its existence... The AP channel has a clip of an Alaska Bear injuring an Australian Tourist as the most watched video, so far, with 186,000 views in just 2 days!

The internet is a strange and unpredictable universe.

On Canon PowerShot G3X real-world samples posted article (158 comments in total)

Any shots using 600mm with extended arms?

(Canon's response: You should buy our EVF add-on, for only $999.95)

Or wait for our pop up EVF to come out in the G9X...

How can you trust a company who abandons platforms, instead of improving it?

Impressive output for a 9.5 year old imaging device.

My respect for this website grows thinner every passing day this fiasco gets ignored by them...

Sad day for originality.

As pointed by another poster down the thread:

Take no part in unfruitful works... but rather, expose them.

Thanks DPR, for exposing them.

The time spent on the computer just trying to find where you wanted to focus, after painstakingly downloading the MegaBlob file and running trough the timeline... is far greater than the quick moment of NAILING THE FOCUS in the first place.

The invention is good, why not... but the cumbersome action of plodding trough miles and miles of image stream file images defeats the purpose of a steady fast workflow.

May work for some, but not all will take it up.

On The big beast: hands on with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 article (1227 comments in total)

Chunky and beefy.

There are many users who prefer this ergonomic configuration, regardless of sensor size, and Panasonic is taking the punt that these users will incline a liking to this product.

The other end of the scale offers cameras so tiny, like the Olympus E-PL3 that it literally slips out of your hands, no matter how big or small your paws are.

Good to see more choices being addressed.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV First Impressions Review preview (998 comments in total)

Sony needs a good UX Designer...

A seriously good UX Designer.

Those "grayed out" menu options are frustratingly exasperating without any tips on how to make them "live".

Might as well not show them.

CameraLabTester: If the camera was panned a little more to the left, he would have captured a DOUBLE RAINBOW (also a rare weather spectacle).

You can see the two arcs sandwiching the lightning on the left.

Here is how a FULL DOUBLE RAINBOW looks like:

In many places around the World yes... but in Las Vegas?

Looks like there might be some space for an EVF on the side panel of that bulbous gigantic hood... then, MLU takes on a new meaning... "Mirror Less Use"...

Let this be a lesson for Ricoh and Pentax never to play the Rolling Stones as background music at the production assembly line...

Highest ranked CANON sensor compared to a HIGHER RANKED and better sensor from another BRAND.

That's how the Headline should read.
