On Readers' showcase: Landscape photography article (94 comments in total)

These ARE beauties. But it also seems that the photos reflect a relatively narrow range of landscape photography (here: very wide open view, slight HDR feeling).

I know that this comment isn't welcome.

Interesting, thanks for posting this story.

I have also learned (on a much smaller scale) that more exposure doesn't necessarily bring more fame and/or money.

h2k: I have only read the conclusion and i don't know this camera or its rivals from personal experience, but it seems there's a lot of solid advice here which is most helpful in the decision-making hassle regarding one's next camera.

To FishEye, i meant that i read the *conclusion page*, not the *conclusion paragraph* (if there is such a thing). Sorry for the omission, if it's not too late to ask so.

Thanks for your contribution as well.

On Travel tripods: Comparing 5 aluminum kits article (105 comments in total)

A very helpful and interesting review!

Still i would have liked to see a table comparing all products with their main features (price, size packed, height, weight) (some measurements perhaps even indicated by bars, not just numbers).

I also think the balance between the product pages and the conclusion page isn't right. I feel that some of the construction details mentioned in the conclusion page should have been on the relevant product pages (perhaps creating combined product pages for two rather similar tripods together). After that, it could have been possible to present an overall-conclusion that looks less fractured and difficult-to-grasp than it does here.

On Olympus takes Pen E-PL6 beyond Asia article (76 comments in total)

I think right in the front-page news item you should mention the relevant differences between this model and its predecessor. If there are no relevant differences (apart from added accessories) you should mention that too explicitly.

Sometimes i couldn't understand DPR's choice of photographers to present on weekends. Here, i don't scratch my head.

On Budget M43: Kodak Pixpro S-1 First Impressions Review article (137 comments in total)

I think in the news item on the front page you should clearly mention the lens mount.

I think in the specs overview you should clearly state if the "tilting" monitor is side-hinged or vertically articulated; anyway i like it that you mention "no touchscreen" expressively.

Did you mean that?

Andy, agreed, it works both ways. But obviously both of us prefer "defining" here.

In reply to:

Jonath: I often think these reviews prove how subjective this kind of pixel peeping is. Personally having looked at the comparison I'd say there isn't a huge amount of difference, certainly not enough to claim you'd be an idiot for buying one over another if you wanted a camera that was good at higher ISO.

For me personally the A7S is the cleaner of the 3 cameras the higher ISO that you go, but there's not a lot in it. I accept in saying this that I'm both being entirely subjective, as in I have no quantitative way of saying why I hold this opinion other than they're my eyes I'm looking through and its my own personal taste. I also accept fully that some of you may have far better taste than me :-).

DPR - these tests would be fascinating if you removed the brands and had to guess which camera was which from the images - it would generate a lot of clicks and hopefully good debate and also prove once and for all how subjective this is.

Agreed, Jonath, a "blind test" (so to speak) with "anonymous" studio samples would create a rage here. Wouldn't participate, but would love to see it.

At least it's nice to see another manufacturer putting stakes into M43.

Weissbier: One would think that it wouldn't be too difficult for Tamron to make versions of this lens for E-mount, X-mount and NX-mount. Not that I'm interested in a super zoom particularly, I'm just happy too see more third-party support for mirrorless.

Andy and Weissbier, interesting to hear about the flange differences.

Vlad S: What a bold move by Canon...

Right you are. Canon have me breathless.

Direct link | Posted on Jun 17, 2014 at 21:21 UTC

Don't know if it's nice to expose a trivial failure in such a prominent way.

At least DPRs doesn't seem worried that the next test models might arrive with a delay.
