Nicotinix: I understand a website redesign is a big deal, but for Pete's sake, the iPad has been around for about two years now and there are plenty of photographers who use the iPad on a regular basis. Don't you think it is time to lose the flash part and move to html 5 so I can see those images on my iPad???

nicotinix - Maybe you should dump the ipad for an open system that supports all standards, not just the ones that make money for apple

mauro paillex: Perfect files but orrible pictures!!

no petka, these reviews highlight the biggest shortcoming of dpreview which is that the photographs for all their reviews are universally bad. IMO, they should invest some money in some studio equipment and consider taking some photo courses to understand how real photographers will use the cameras. Taking snapshots like an iphone camera user would does not do justice to a $3500 camera

On Photoshop CS6 Beta: New Features for Photographers article (154 comments in total)

i'm not seeing a whole lot that's compelling. The content aware fill that dpreview demonstrated looks flawed. I see the outline of the original selection. The selective focus example looks horrible. I'm sure it works better than the dpreview demo. Dpreview ought to hire some professional artists and photographers to do their reviews.

mrJamieSmith: I sold my 5D MK II, 35L, 135L and 580EXII in anticipation for this camera. Call me crazy, but I've been wishing for a camera like what Fuji is promising here real bad!

i did that for the sony nex but eventually went back to the dslr.

Albino_BlacMan: I don't see how you can get that much better than spyder 3. My Spyder 3 calibrated Monitor matches my prints exactly as far as I can tell

Weird, my spyder 3 produced sepia tinged B&W photos on two different computers/monitors. Additionally, prints on my 3880 using the epson profiles come out much darker than on the monitor.

No, the peaking function does not put an optical viewfinder to shame. Anyone who makes that statement doesn't know much about photography or DOF. The peaking function for example, isn't able to do eye-focusing on a close up portrait or see things like stems in a flower unless they are highlighted specifically with back or side lighting.

On Fujifilm releases X-S1 premium EXR 26X superzoom article (383 comments in total)

don't forget the other superzooms use much smaller sensors so the IQ on this will be superior. Mushyness may just be a function of sharpening
