In reply to:

Stephen787: camera of the year, just give it to sony.
what do we have coming out this year.
yeah. nothing.
as a canon 5d2 owner, i cannot believe cannon still doing nothing. just like nokia when steve jobs introduced the iphone. Nokia management just do nothing. Nokia failed by their management. Just like canon.

Not that Canon is hot at the moment but I wouldn't exactly call the 5Ds/5DsR "nothing".

daddyo: I'd have to say that this is possibly the best featured photographer article I've seen on DPR, in terms of excellent image quality. I am a decided lover of good wildlife photography, and find Mr. Baheux's use of Black & White presentation extremely well done in an area where color presentation would most often seem the best choice for visual impact.
This is simply great photography in my opinion -- excellent capture and excellent presentation.
Thanks DPR!

papa natas,

Is "Are you on medication?" the type of replies you had in mind when you posted "boy, I just love exchanges at this high level of intelligence" ?

Though luck for the American Bison, not being in the endangered species list.

On article PIX 2015: Chasing light with Joe McNally (35 comments in total)

Thank you for this.

It falls in the realm of "public service" and it is especially important that it is being shown to DPR's demographics.

It IS about the light, not the equipment.

I felt tremendously in-sync throughout the whole presentation. The "corporate meeting" considerations part, then, is almost eerie in that it so much resembles what I always say. I had more than a chuckle.

I feel, though, that Joe might be making a mistake saying that he is a generalist photographer because he had no choice, he couldn't be good enough at any specific genre of photography.

I get asked a lot of times which type of photography I like most and I always reply "all of them".

The inability to specialize is not the main factor behind becoming a "generalist".

It's the passion for the medium and, in a mostly preponderant way, something that Joe, himself, made a point about in this presentation: The knowledge that, being light the crux of it all, it has no "genre".

When light is perceived as special, it can be "read", interpreted and registered as a reflection of a beautifully serene face, a raw majestic natural scene or an elegantly streamlined architectural subject.

As he so aptly says: It is all about light and its ascribable narrative virtues.

In reply to:

Yannick KREMPP: Firmware updates like these are a massive change to the camera's original's specs.

I think it can even be considered as a new or refreshed version of a model, and as such is also needs a new review: this could potentially turn the A7 II into a cheaper option than the A7R II for someone moving from Canon, for instance.

Heck, it's maybe even better for some people, because you don't have to handle the massive files...

Couldn't agree more.

Lightcapture: Well done Sony, adding two very important improvements to the already stellar a7ri!

Not the "R", the A7II.

PhotoKhan: Got it, for these scenarios DSLRs still rule.

That is probably why they are what still shows in the sidelines of any major sports event ;)

...but what also should be carefully noted (...especially for the brands relying on that last advantage...) is:

Every single drawback mentioned in that fifth paragraph in the "Final Thoughts & Conclusion" is perfectly correctable in the next few interactions.

On article 2015 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras around $500 (272 comments in total)
In reply to:

PhotoKhan: I know everybody finds Canon M line lacking but is there any other possible reason why you decided to leave the M10 out?
The 15-45 kit combo offer costs exactly $499...That's as "around" $500 as it can be.

Why...?
This is a mere "round-up" based on price and specs, a list of what's available at the considered price point.
No hands-on evaluations are involved and the simple fact is that, at the very same time this is published, you can order one from B&H.

PhotoKhan: I've been doing this with a chinese-made articulated arm fitted to the hot-shoe + a home-made tab adapter + 2 generations of Galaxy tabs + DSLRController App for well over 2 years now :)

...In fact, I kept my previous Galaxy Tab just to have it ride in my photography bag, on account of this.

I tell you guys, it is a must have for tripod photography (landscapes/architectural/nocturnal)

Either get this or do your own do-it-yourself solution. Those chinese-made articulated arms are about $10 each.

(continued)

To me it just makes no sense that a serious photographer, be it a professional or keen amateur is happy with Retina displays when there are so much better options on the market.

As for compatibility, it seems that yes, the Nexus would be compatible but, please check these pages for full compatibility between DSLRController, cameras and tablets models:

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your kind words :)

I am not keen on recommending any tablet except to caution people about going the Apple way only because they claim Retina is f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c.

It isn't.

Samsung is king on displays and their SuperAMOLED, SuperAMOLED+ ones, ON TABS, have to be seen to be believed in what pertains to color and contrast, which are the 2 main considerations for photography and cinema-related video content.

....but there are also downfalls with Samsung, not least of which the way they seem to be starting to converge with Apple in what relates to forced control over how software is used.

Being a keen amateur photographer, I buy my tabs with image quality as the first requirement.

To this extent, nothing beats SuperAMOLED and SuperAMoled+

I currently have a Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4.

PhotoKhan: Anyone not seriously annoyed by getting these after having spent 12,000$+ on a mirrorless camera and a single lens either cares too much about flaunting their wealth or too little about photography.

Nothing to be sorry about. You're not alone.
Many people, when an opinion based on fact does not suit them, opt to call others "judgmental".

That they fail to see the irony in the process, it's just one of those funny things in life...

Oh no, not by a mile...That dubious distinction belongs to the brand positioning, all by itself.

Osa25: Anyone releasing these kind of products in 2015 should at least attempt for some sort of aesthetic appeal. Form and function and are not separate poles.

...also, we don't a good reference frame in those photos but I am getting the feeling that this might be the most compact FF DSLR ever.
