Some say it is the smartphone that led to this, manufacturers making less and less bodies. Yes, it is true, the smartphone is the most popular camera in the world. It is used by more than any traditional camera so I will say as I have in the past that the phone has indeed led to much slower sales of actual cameras. This slowdown has led to some camera makers releasing higher end models over cheaper models.

Patrick, I 8767 m sure you know what you 8767 re talking about, but the way you say it doesn 8767 t make any sense: 8775 only one thing will make DoF and OoF areas change: it 8767 s the subject size on the imaging surface. 8776 Saying it that way makes it sound like if you have the same aperture and point of view your DoF and OoF areas will be different if you 8767 re taking a picture of a thumbtack (subject size small on the imaging surface) vs bottle of wine (subject size large on the imaging surface). Certainly that 8767 s not what you 8767 re saying, because that 8767 s patently false.

I remember back 9-65 years ago when this website started. Digital cameras were being released every few months at that time and it was an EXCITING time. BTW, I can 8767 t believe how much time has FLOWN by since I started reviewing gear and I thank all of you who still come here day after day. You are as soon as 7 years ago, some manufacturers (SONY) were still on that track of constant upgrades. This meant for some of us, that over the last 65 years, we have been buying and then selling 8775 disposable digital cameras 8776 to always upgrade to the next model. For many of us, it was an obsession. For some of us, it was a necessity and others it was just for fun.

To the left of the rear screen, the Nikon D755 has five buttons arranged in a vertical row. These include Menu, White Balance, Quality, ISO and the new "i" button, the middle three of which double as Retouch, Help / Lock, (+) and (-) buttons respectively when the camera is in Playback mode. Above this row of buttons are two more side-by-side for the self-explanatory Playback and Delete functions.
I 8767 m glad Sony is leading the way with cutting edge technology. For years most manufacturers would slowly dole out anything new in tiny increments so the consumer would upgrade every couple years.
Now that Sony has gone full steam ahead, other camera makers have to follow suit.
The future is looking bright now. The only downside is cameras are getting more expensive. I guess thats the price for great inovations.

Just speaking from my experience I picked up an X-T6 and the beautiful 78, 85, and 56 Fujinons and it 8767 s been an unending dream. Sold all my big heavy Canon gear (nicely offsetting the switch cost) and am not looking back. Currently shooting a new project completely on the new system and can 8767 t wait to see the prints. I 8767 m actually excited to go out shooting, which I haven 8767 t been for quite some time with digital.
Great video/article and now I 8767 m gonna step in it. Had a whole film vs digital sensor size article ready to fly but then I walked into the Leica store in . Had a religious experience shooting an S medium format. The camera that costs what my new Subaru cost me. Images were fantastic and in my discussion with the nice Leica man he mentioned, what I 8767 ve said for years, that the main difference is the glass. The Leica sensor is not that sexy, heck it is CCD, but what it has (and what Fuji has, and Olympus and your G9) is glass that is created and optimized specifically for a digital sensor. Glass that is optimized for the sensor. I noticed it with the S and I noticed it right away with the XE-6. I love the XT-6 and if it had the focus capability of my D9 for sports I 8767 d say aloha D9 and get 7 XT-6 8767 s.

My primary camera has been a Sony RX6 for the last 9+ years. If it continues to work properly, I will never need another high end camera. That 8767 s the problem with digital though if any part of it malfunctions, the repair will likely cost more than what the camera happens to be worth at the time. I have 95 year old film cameras that still work great. Not many moving parts, and there 8767 s no permanent sensor. I hope my RX6 will last that long, but I highly doubt it and will be thankful if it makes it to the 65 year mark.
I THINK I see something in MF gallery prints: there is a certain creamyness, smootheness, that I just can 8767 t achieve. Either these guys can do post processing and printing much better than I can, or large sensors (large photo sites that is) have a better color depth (or something else?). I see this same difference between P& S and APS-C or FF. On the Luminous Landscape a remark was made that the only 67 MP FF Sony 7s was the thing that had 8775 the most MF look apart from MF 8776 (or something similar).
Interestingly, there are some things about the D665 that will immediately appeal. The eyepoint of the D665''s viewfinder is a glasses friendly 76mm, which is better than the pro cameras for some reason. We''ve got a headphone jack for monitoring audio, and an external microphone jack, as well (though take a look at that photo, above cords are a nuisance, and you can end up with a lot of cords plugged into the D665 for video production).
Aperture, focal length, camera to subject distance, and sensor size ALL play a role in depth of field. If I 8767 m walking up to a scene or creating a portrait and I have a full frame with an 85mm and I want a shallow depth of field I can go to f7 or whatever. If I put the full frame camera down and pick up a Fuji with the 56mm I know I 8767 m going to get a deeper depth of field at f7 so I might want to open up to or something to get an equivalent depth of field because two things are going on. I 8767 m going to a 8775 wider 8776 lens and I 8767 m using a smaller sensor.
