    I dunno.
    Once you've taken that step of walking along in public talking into any camera it is debatable whether there is any self-consciousness left that can be challenged by a mere bracket being attached to the camera

    After a topic is established as the primary topic for a product, it would make sense to just change the topic title to the said product name.

    As misguided as spec wars are, they do create a market for older models that are good enough and that get discounted officially or on the used market after the new generation is out. It is just up to out psychology to accept the products that fulfill our needs and not our wants for the newest and the best.

    Huawei has been putting out impressive smartphones this year, but it seems that their Kirin 980 still lags behind the SD 855 in some key areas - SD can do 40K60p and can also produce bokeh effects for video and will probably do HDR video as well.
    Samsung is sticking to their lowest possible mpx count sensors, which I think is a smart idea, since you lighten the load for the CPU and the pixels can be as big as possible. However, Mate 20 PRO sensors seem like a very good bunch, but the Kirin CPU limits them to 4K30p, they started pushing a non-standard nanoSD card and they've also succumbed to the ridicules curved display hype (adding unnecessary fragility to a very expensive phone).
    This 38mpx sensor looks very good since it is also bigger than what Samsung has been using. Shame on Google though, for creating their Pixel phones that have such a limited availability and then keeping their impressive camera software exclusive to that small bunch of phones - what a close-minded strategy (it should be a OS-wide feature).

    JurijTurnsek got a reaction from Castorp in Why Is Sony Fanboyism So Bad?   
    I think it boils down to the underdog syndrome - Sony has been pushing innovation hard at the expense of it not being polished enough. I'd wager that most non-PRO users got used to the kinks and like using their cameras, but of course there are those that either really struggle to use them in paid shoots or are just expecting too much (coming from a slow-evolving, but very mature DSLRs). I would go as far as to say that if Sony had the same market share as Canon, they would have the funds to release more polished products, but with the same innovation.
    Now, with 2 new players in the segment, their first generation bodies suffer from the same kind of unpolishedness and the same loud users are downplaying the (same) kinks, because they can use their preferred brand forever (extreme hypocrisy).
    This kind of blind loyalty is therefore really hurting Sony's trajectory and their supporters have a right to be disappointed.
    The worst consequence of all this are now the incessant attempts to label a review that is not in line with users' subjective feelings (and needs) being labeled as biased and fake news (as if reviewers that test an incredible variety of gear don't a have more objective opinion as someone who uses a limited set of gear).
    I find it most puzzling the attacks on Dpreview reviews, since they live from selling gear from all brands, and the same people putting vloggers on the pedestal where the referral links are showed in the viewer's face.

    Hopefully, DJI or a 3rd party will make wide angle converter for that snap-on magnetic mount. 28mm could feel cramped in certain situations and I would not mind loosing some light transmission that you'd get with a wider-lens.

    It already has more than enough potential as is - video quality is good enough and a stable shot is worth more than dynamic range. It is meant to create content with minimal fuss. It is not meant for creating works of art with exceptional color depth yada, yada.
    I can totally imagine using it while hiking in the Alps, taking it out of the pocket for a quick 1-5 minute clip every half hour - no setup required. You could say that it would not disrupt the experience for the creator as well, since you would not be fiddling with gear to get a good/perfect shot. And a walking clip gives a far better feel for the scenery as a boring standstill pan without a gimbal. And then, there that awesome moving timelapse mode ... sounds amazing, just set it up as you grab a bite before continuing a hike.

    Hopefully, a smartphone will beat them to the 8K punch, so that some asshat will be able to do a comparison review and single-handedly annihilate what remains of the ILC market.

    If you fancy going from the seaside to some hiking in the scenic Alps in a single day, you definitely should. It's a small country and you can basically travel  between the furthest parts of the country in less than 3 hours of driving and the diversity of terrain is amazing.

    Jesus F Christ, enough with the speedboosters for the R. Just wait for a full sensor read-out model.
    Do guys absolutely hate DPAF and value bad RS as a "creative tool"?
    Canon slaps you in the face with a severely compromised body and you bitch and moan about it. Then you turn your back and apply every band-aid and ointment to it that would somehow make it "the body that was promised". You should reward other OEMs instead aka take you business elsewhere.

    JurijTurnsek got a reaction from kye in Micro SDXC with adapter vs SDXC cards   
    I've been using a microSD with an adapter for 5 years until the card died (few months before the warranty ran out). I've had a few times when the card was deemed corrupt and had to format it and no such issue with the regular SD card I got as the replacement. It could be an issue with the snugness of the adapter (it's a flimsy piece of plastic) or the 3rd party batteries that would sometimes die well before the percent would get to 0%. I've been using these batteries as the last resort since the card died, so maybe the adapter is not to blame.
    Unless you share the same card with some action cams, I would advise against it, since they are so much easier to loose and the adapter could break or become less snug after a lot of use and you wouldn't even know it. These days, most Android phones don't have hot-swappable mircoSD card slots so even that advantage has gone down the drain.
    However, at since the debate is about microSD, I would once again suggest to Sony to incorporate one such slot as a backup slot on their APS-C models. You would never even take it out, except for the time that the main card fails and the size of the card reader would fit in nicely in the smaller bodies.

    I have never got that either.
    I have found that in many instances Sony colours are more accurate to reality and in many cases people prefer Sony colours in blind tests.
    I think it comes down to People getting used to Canon and Nikon colours more over many years and liking what they knew.
    I have never had any issue with any brand for colours for stills and for video, I just use what I get from the camera.
    Besides, there is always a much bigger difference in what I see between the various computers, monitors, TVs I look at stuff on.

    Sorry, Yeah, was just going off current £2.5K for the Sony and £3.5K for the Leica.
    God knows what the UK price will be post Brexit when it's probably launched. 
    Probably cost 500 pairs of Levis, 10 sacks of potatoes and 25 LPs of music from Western bands. 
    I definitely think that both that Panasonic and the Samsung whose name escapes me with the zoom lens would have found the world had come round to meet them if they did new versions.
