On Readers' Showcase: Dale Johnson article (39 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ednaz: Excellent perspectives, great setups.

Dear DPReview - please fix the transitional fade in fade out stuff on these showcases. Even on the fastest internet Comcast offers (which tells me it's your servers, not Comcast) the first 3-5 seconds of every new image had the shadow of the previous image over it. Kind of ruins the gallery click through experience because it begins each image with a chaotic dogs' breakfast, that undercuts the impact of a great image. Something other than fades perhaps, because photography like you showcase deserves better.

Not sure what you're talking about...works fine for me.

Mister J: And quite right too.

But - ridiculously - you still cannot shoot the Eiffel Tower at night.

Never been to France but I wouldn't give a @#% about such a stupid rule...if I'm there at night I'm taking the pic...just like millions of others do every year.

On Phase One 645DF+ with IQ250 field test article (141 comments in total)

Interesting article, I think most of us would love a kit like that if we could afford it. That said, I guess I'm going to be 'that guy' and say I'm a little disappointed in the photos. All that fancy kit and not even one decent landscape shot?? The pic of the beach is devoid of any interest and has a slightly crooked horizon to boot. The only pic I wouldn't have deleted here is the B&W portrait of the kid, I like that one.
I guess it's easy to be the critic when I'm not the one writing the article but honestly, on a site with this visibility reviewing gear of this caliber you would think you guys would step up the game a bit.

On Instagram stores higher resolution images post (20 comments in total)
In reply to:

fmian: I kind of prefer the lower res.
Instagram has never been about sharpness and pixel peeping so it forces one to rely on all the other attributes of an image to succeed. Oh well.. things always change..

fmian...the comment was mostly tongue in cheek but even the 'good' work on instagram is so small and highly compresed and for whatever reason we are forced to look at everything in a square format. Not my favorite app for photos...

Other attributes?? You mean like how hot the selfie is?

On DxOMark Mobile report: HTC One M9 post (7 comments in total)
In reply to:

Clint Dunn: I'm a huge HTC fan, IMO they're phones are awesome and the build quality is top notch. That said, why is HTC the only phone manufacturer on Earth who can't seem to get a decent camera into their phones??? My latest phone is an Apple for this very reason...if HTC could sort out a decent camera I would buy the M9 in a heartbeat.

Ramsey, the whole point of shooting with a phone is it is supposed to be convenient and easy...if I want to shoot RAWs I'll drag along my real camera.

On White House ban on photos and social media has ended article (63 comments in total)

So....flash photography is prohibited but you have to use a P&S. So, basically you will now have thousands of tourists rolling through who do not even know how to turn the flash off on their iPhone let alone their P&S. How do they plan on controlling that??

Actually...multiple people have had this camera since Jan:)

In reply to:

MarcMedios: More blah blah blah from Leica. Why would anyone settle for fixed lenses for $4,500? It seems that being tied to the lens that some marketing guy in Germany decided was "right for you" is surrendering your personal choice as a photographer. I have nothing against this Leica (yet) or its price... but having a single lens fixed there... forever... nah. I'll pass.

Well MarcMedios...I like how the term P&S is now some sort of dirty insult. Last I checked, this 'P&S' allows you to shoot full manual....and everything I said in my post is true...so what exactly are you disputing?? Sure, it's expensive for a fixed lens camera but the quality is top notch. Don't like then don't buy it.

jiijiiviivii: Why would any NORMAL person pay that much money for this?

HowAboutRaw - Yes, you are correct but the point being the majority of an iPhone6 or MacBook Pro are made anywhere BUT the USA where Apple is based.

CameraLabTester: This camera is exciting.

Anybody who gets to own this won't be here on forums anymore...

They would be doing something more worthy.

I don't shoot Sony or Nikon...but it would be a very easy decision for me given a choice between the two. I'm done with DSLR's.

Dude, I didn't answer your question because I don't know...but as I already said I don't care! What's with you people who like to bash the likes of Cosina. I've owned numerous Zeiss ZM mount lenses made by Cosina and build and image quality are superb.

If it makes you feel better to think Germans running around in lederhosen are building your lenses then good for you. Here's a hint...anybody with the right equipment and training can make a superb product. Apple outsources everything to China as an example.

kewlguy: Canon is not sleeping - they just don't pay any attention.

Really? I was unhappy with the IQ from my 7D and sold it...years ago. To each their own I guess.

garyknrd: I put the brakes on my Canon gear spending over two years ago... Man am i glad I did.

If that story about AF performance of Canon lenses on the A7RII is true....then Canon better be very, very worried.

In reply to:

PhotoRotterdam: This is a story about a Sony camera, and the comments are about Canon and Nikon cameras...

Thematic is right...Canon especially is so full of themselves and stuck in 2006. I was a 10+year user of MANY Canon cameras and lenses but sold everything. It became apparent long ago that unless you are willing to shoot, big, heavy DSLR's there was nothing worth shooting from Canon that would be coming anytime soon.

Personally I shoot a Leica but I think people in general are gravitating to cameras like the A7 for the superb image quality and smaller size.

Haha...was that an attempt at humor?? 30% of the people who buy the A7RII will post online ad nauseum to justify their purchase, and then sell it 6 months later when the A9 is announced....and the cycle continues.

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: BOOM! Take that Sony! Canon has GPS for their flagship Full Frame DSLR. Everyone knows that GPS is the single most important thing you can possibly have for taking pictures.

Actually even this GPS addition is a bust...why not build it into the camera in the first place instead of making you mount it on the hotshoe....what if you want GPS and to use a flash??

For the record I could care less about GPS in a camera...just sayin'.

CorrectionMan - If the build and image quality are there then it could be outsourced to Mars for all I care.
