Hahaha.

On Gary Fong launches virtual camera tutorial service article (147 comments in total)

Lets hope the tutorials are better than his light mods.

Why didn't Ken Rockwell think of this?

On Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path article (1321 comments in total)

The problem with smaller sensor cameras is F-Stop.

You just can't get a F4 FF look from a APS-C sensor unless it's 2.8

And if it's m4/3 it takes an even faster lens, a 2.0.

There are very few 2.0 lenses for m4/3.

Even a 2.8 lens on m4/3 is like 5.6 on a FF.

With smaller sensors and slow lenses you might as well use your cellphone.

On Nikon D750 Review preview (1838 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mark B UK: This seems to me like a mini-review, with many sections missing from the normally excellent DPReview full test. Will it be added to in due course, or is this a sign of cut-backs?

Only waterproof cameras should be tested in Seattle.

The rest of the cameras should be tested in sunny Southern California.

:-)

On Medium well done: Two takes on the Pentax 645Z article (244 comments in total)
In reply to:

paulbysea: I have ignored this camera until know. These two reviews have given me pause for thought. I currently have a 5D3 and was wondering about getting a 7D2 for my more action orientated shot and keeping with the 5D3 as I develop as a landscape and product photography. Now I wonder if I should sell the 5D3 as well and go for the Pentax. Or maybe I should wait and hope canon bring out a similar camera, albeit one where you can use EF lenses to crop down the body to FF in a similar way that Nikon can with their system. Whatever I do will be after xmas, probably spring time. Need to sell some classic Naim amps and Meridian 104 tuner first to free up some cash first.

I assume you looked at the Luminous Landscape article(s) on this camera? (Including the one with astrophotography)

On High-end full frame roundup (2014) article (578 comments in total)

Why not do 2 roundups or just 1 roundup?
High end FF
Not high end FF
Or just FF
But cover all FF.

Agree with the other posts.
Nice thing Michael has done here.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2702 comments in total)

Yet another Canon body that I'm not interested in.

My Canon glass is either going on older Canon bodies or newer camera bodies made by other manufacturers.

The last 5 camera bodies I have bought have not been Canon.

Canon and Nikon need to wake up.

On Canon introduces new $78K 50-1000mm cine lens article (173 comments in total)

So is this announcement supposed to make up for the stupid India or whatever non announcement it was?

If it costs more than a car why is DPReview bothering us with it?

Slow news year?

Next thing you know the video sites will be newsing only still photography info.

Maybe DPR is taking their marketing methods from Canon.

On Photokina 2014: Hands-on with RED's Epic Dragon article (50 comments in total)
In reply to:

Bernard Carns: The problem with grabbing still frames from a video camera is the lack of pixels in the vertical dimension.

It's like having a 100MP camera that is 1 pixel high.

Its all panorama.

I guess you don't get the concept of rhetoric.
And I think you meant to type 16 not 6.

On Canon confirms price drop on select EF lenses article (140 comments in total)

Canon...Kodak....they sort of start with the same sound. Canon will have a softer landing. Are Canon lenses gonna be like Hasselblad lenses someday where you cant give them away? Both Canon and Nikon have not innovated enough. I have their glass but I'm using it on other brands bodies. Haven't bought a Canon body in years . Not buying their glass will follow.

Lets hope by now they finally figured out how to make adapters that don't jam on a lot of peoples cameras.

Direct link | Posted on Aug 29, 2014 at 21:41 UTC as 11th comment

Another typical letdown from Canon.
The last cameras I've bought have NOT been from them.
When are they going to finally do something worth someone's attention?

On Dronestagram contest winners announced article (120 comments in total)

Interesting points of view.

But the images are really flat.

Where's the dynamic range?

These are the poorest quality images I've ever seen National Geographic endorse.

Maybe National Graphic has become the drone....er zombie....

Hahaha.

But, again, the points of view are somewhat interesting.

I wanna see the picture of the eagle chasing the guy on the ground controlling the drone...

On Chicago-based Calumet Photographic closes U.S. stores article (195 comments in total)

Sad to see them go.

I drive past one of their stores every day on my way to work.

Even Samys a few miles away doesn't carry the fun high end stuff any more.

But some other small camera stores seem to be hanging in there.

Sign of the times.
