On Hands-on with Nikon V2 article (453 comments in total)
In reply to:

GabrielZ: My favorite types of photography are landscape and macro. So the increased DOF of the smaller sensor, combined with compact size, low weight, ability to change lenses and relatively affordable price, would suit me quite well. But I want to wait for a full review to see how image quality measures up. And hope that down the line Nikon releases a real macro lens for this system.

Nikon FT-1 mount adapter allows Nikkor F-mount lenses to be used on V2.
Then Nikon shooter improves own gear capabilities.
He gains greater telephoto lens magnification in wildlife photography.
He gains video capabilities.
He can use F-mount macro lenses on V2 too.
V2 is well complementary to Nikon DSRL cameras and to Nikkor F-mount lenses.
V2 is an ideal camera for Nikon shooters.

I have ideal camera : Nikon D700.
I need an AF Leica Elmarit 28/2.8 or an AF Zeiss Distagon 21/2.8 for D700
and a Nikon 400/5.6.
That's all.

"SD-to-CF adapter if your camera only has a CF slot".
CF Type I too?

TCJohnston: Review is good as far as it goes. What about apps. Want to know about using the tablet to view, edit, display photos from my main camera. Find the iPad photo kit a pain. Limited memory in the iPad along with the requirement to move a pic from the card to the pad in order to see it full screen is frustrating.
Waiting on a direct to DSLR connection kit so I can control the camera from the tablet. Review photos quickly, etc.

What about model release apps, sunrise/sunset tracking apps, etc. Other stuff that a photographer will need.

As far as not having 3/4G internally, I just setup my phone as a hotspot when I want to access the internet from my tablet.

I agree.
"Waiting on a direct to DSLR connection kit so I can control the camera from the tablet. Review photos quickly, etc.".
Then tablet will be very useful for photographers.

Excellent detailed review. Very good integration with DxO data.
Good black test on white background.

marike6: The model images like the first must have been a real hardship for Mr. Diallo.

It's nice to see DPR pull out the good glass like the CZ 24-70, 16-35, and 135 1.8 lenses? It would have been nice to see some top tier lenses on the Nikon D600 Sample Gallery as well. But it's of no consequence as I actually prefer the images from the Nikon based on what I've seen so far.

But they are superb cameras for sure.

Nice job. Thanks.

I would use same good lens for different cameras as the Zeiss Planar 50 mm f/2.
We have this lens with Nikon, Canon, Sony, Pentax mount.

In reply to:

jcmarfilph: And when shoot this scene, please equalize the settings next time coz we are seeing inconsistencies in your studio shots in almost all cameras (within similar group).

I agree with NektonFi. I would use normalized lens too as, for Full Frame, a Zeiss Planar 50 mm f/2 (that we have for Nikon, Pentax, EOS,... mount).

In reply to:

gl2k: high dynamic range sensors + exposure bracketing + powerful RAW software have made the zone system a superfluous art.
Today it is much more important to understand how your camera works and where are the limits of hardware & software.

if you are interested ...
http://photo.tutsplus.com/articles/theory/understanding-using-ansel-adams-zone-system/

My D700 can vary exposure from -1 stop max to +1 stop max in exposure bracketing.
Then if you want -2 stop exposure variation too you must underexpose -1 stop.
I hit the shutter once. Then I choose the better image without editing.

Interesting article!
Then I could :
- meter spot in what I'm more concerned
- if white snow overexpose 2 stop
- if pure yellow overexpose 1 stop
- if dark blue sky underexpose 1 stop
- if black shoes underexpose 2 stop.
Good easy solution could be a combination of an exposure braketing -1 stop / 0 /+1 stop and of 1 stop over-exposure when I suppose be in Zone 3/4 or 1 stop under-exposure when I suppose be in Zone 6/7.

Dpreview could enter a dedicated list of Categories in each Forum and allow us define separately the fields Brand, Model and Category both in forum thread and in search thread. For example:

Forum: Camera talk
Brand: choose from a dpreview list (Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony, etc., All)
Model: choose from a dpreview list (6D, D700, etc., All)
Category: choose from dpr. list (Performances, Controls, For sale, etc., All)

Forum: Lens talk
Brand: choose f.d.l. (Canon, Nikon, Sigma, etc., All)
Model: choose f.d.l. (400mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.8, etc., All)
Category: choose f.d.l. (Performances, Samples, For sale, etc., All).
Forum: Photography and Techniques
Brand: choose f.d.l. (Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony, etc., All)
Model: choose f.d.l. (6D, D700, etc., All)
Category: choose f.d.l. (Studio, Landscape, Birdwatching, etc., All)

Finally few forums each of them with own dedicated list of Categories for a probably more useful search aid.

Look at Brad Mangin's site.
There are "Instagram" photos and "Classical" photos.
Look at the difference about definition, colors, tonal range and impact.
Don't joke.

Good news:
- X-E1 wins Photokina STAR 2012 award
- Zeiss will produce lenses T* for Fuji XF mount.
I believe IQ will be excellent.

On Just Posted: Sony Alpha SLT-A57 review article (235 comments in total)

DPR: "At base ISO, the SLT-A57 displays accurate colors, pleasing contrast and renders high-contrast edges with a minimal degree of sharpening-induced halos".
It seems better than all other DSRL in the market (see studio scene comparison JPEG in particular the eyes of the girl in the right hand).
A good in-camera processing, lack of mirror's vibrations and SteadyShot image stabilization probably can help.
Very interesting camera!

In reply to:

cesaregal: More reliable than a camera phone in my opinion:
- glass lens (6 elements in 5 groups)
- electronic VR
- contrast-detect TTL AF
- macro close-up
- ISO 80-1600
- exposure compensation +/- 2 EV
- 190 shots per charge
- 7,3 GB internal memory.
Look at samples: http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/coolpix/style/s01/sample.htm

Yes, there are good camera phones, but (my experience) camera phones give or cold colors or oversatured colors.
A native camera has minor mechanical constraints.
Optical zoom lens and following neutral color rendition can make the difference.

cesaregal: It's a professional wide-angle lens.
We need a professional 4/3 camera
to balance weight and quality.

I hope Schneider give us a
professional wide-angle lens,
autofocus, for FF (Nikon/Canon).

In my opinion a professional m4/3 camera body could be the gold award Olympus OM-D EM-5 with grip/battery pack.

Finally a good little camera for a good big lens.
In the middle the right sensor: neither too little, nor too big.
We are approaching to ideal pocketable camera.
