  3. https://www.dpreview.com/articles/2412477093/travel-photography-and-the-journey-towards-a-new-review-style good travellers view of the m6/22f2 combo the m6 is basically the m5 without the view finder. and makes some good comparisons vs fuji x100F to see how stacks up against. makes the obvious comment of the missing fuji film simulations ....
  4. countering some of the posts here as a DSLR owner and also owning mirrorless and compacts. id say you'd slip right across from your compact to a canon dslr. the user interface has a lot of similarities.... I also dont buy the smaller argument of mirrorless. check this little baby canon DSLR coming out soon. announcement in matter of days, its actually smaller than some mirrorless options. and comes with a decent aps-c sensor and useable with the HUGE range of very affordable canon and other OEM maker lenses but in end wander in a store check things out. in my opinion .. canon has somethings really mastered. usability, ergonomics and their focussing systems are really very good. they also make cameras from absolute budget to pro and will have no bother finding options in the $1000 mark
  5. yes especially this little model. my niece still has the original 100D thats served her well and good to see them refresh it with this model.
  6. I cant believe it. how on earth does this happen !
  7. probably well worth pointing to these joz. as always good to know of the legit ones. there is a lot of junk on eBay
  8. not surprising and i agree with the sentiment. I know wiht myself some years ago looking to upgrade my mains it was very much obvious that the law diminishing returns very much applied to speakers to. can spend up but it doesnt necessarily bringing better but could just bringing different. depends on aspects chasing too. i picked up some ~$200 20 year old standmounts in mission 750LE's tiny little thing. do wonderfull mid range and superb top end, amazing sound stage and 3D holographic imaging. and a clean snappy sounding speaker. it is very easy to indeed over invest on the speaker... and then completely undernourish the source and amps (including disc players/dacs/processors pre amps, power amps/integrated units) a lot of this also comes down to system matching i feel. visiting whatmough the other week they had a lovely little system in the front room all it had was some old gen whatmough speakers (wiht the chisel edges) an arcam integrated and nad cd player... was beaut
  9. looks like kazz was on it from the start. good to hear this is sorted
  10. the 6 channel units were 150 wpc and it is class AB. as far as gain ask arthur, and whats in stand by ? can always 12V trigger it to go off if worried about power consumption
  11. there are B&W speakers and B&W speakers... not sure on bryson pairing..but if on offer why not check it out there are some grunty avrs...but most are weedy...and a power can help not just in driving ability but also in clean power. better dynamics etc given the greater power reserves on tap with a power amp vs compromises of squishing power stages into AVRs.
  12. finally got around to updating firmware on the pioneer head unit... wow v1.01 to 1.09 .... thats some updates have missed. last one was start of this year. all went seamlessly via usb in and it also contained an update for the bluetooth. will see how all that pans out in use. one only criticism i have of this unit it takes just a tad with a swirl circling on boot up if try to use the map straight away... not sure thats bettered in this update infact might take longer talking about maps... i checked pioneers navi extras and while there is plenty of updates for europe....doesnt appear to be any map updates for au... strange.... not sure who to call as with all the melbourne road works.... I'm starting to see some times the onboard map is caught out ....
  13. having heard the mf and MA silver 8 together I know they make a good combo...but that was with the mf pre and also hearing just the a5 integrated. so no idea how the dac pre will go with what have in mind. and i do think pre pwr matching is a pretty important thing. so some how i would be trying to get a demo or trying together. if all too old then maybe trying to get demo or new of what ever considering. otherwise could be a bit hit miss. the marantz power indeed are not their strongest point, all marantz AV power amps if look inside they look like the amp stage out of their avrs and nothing special. their 2ch integrated or power amps are a different thing in my opinion. but are either costly new or rarely seem to come up second hand.
  14. have you heard it ? what do you think ? vs anything else you have heard. have you heard the jamos ? what do you think ? thats all that is probably relevant. otherwise will spend all the time and effort installing and then hear for the first time and find dont like it ?
  15. according to canon rumours, "THIS IS THE CANON EOS REBEL SL2/200D/X8 EOS 200D / Rebel SL2 Specifications (Google Translated) Color: Black · White · Silver Number of pixels: 24.2 million pixels Continuous shooting performance: 5 frames / sec Rear liquid crystal: 3.0 type vari-angle angle liquid crystal, touch panel Battery: LP-E 17 Size: 122.4 x 92.6 x 69.8 mm Weight: 453 g" Read more: http://www.canonrumors.com/this-is-the-canon-eos-rebel-sl2200dx8/#ixzz4ksvwkvzY the shot showing the camera around the central mount gives perspective of size, and the 100D was a tiny little thing at 117 x 91 x 69 mm 407gm and was gold award winning on dpreview, https://www.dpreview.com/products/canon/slrs/canon_eos100d so while this one grown marginally, they have as a bonus incorporated a flip screen and lets see how it stacks up with new sensor etc. what is GREAT to see is the decent hand grip on the thing...something very lacking on many smaller interchangeable lens cameras. fantastic to see canon continue on the line of these tiny DSLRs
