  • Commented on Fujifilm X100T Overview preview

    The few subtle nags that kept me from buying the X100s have been addressed. Now what am I going to do? It looks like I might need to open my wallet.

  • I own a 1" camera and let me tell everybody that the noise on the 1" is worse than on smaller sensors (even 1/1.7") as evidenced by my Nikon's noise profile versus the Pentax Q7. There's a couple...

  • The thing that bugs me most about the Nikon 1 series (yes, I do own one) is that the sensor is noisier than my smartphone camera. Also, to get a perfect MTF50 you need a resolving power of 198...

  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    Nikon needs to get better at promoting to vertical markets. For example, this is probably the best birding camera out there when attached to Nikon's Monarch scope through Nikon's 1-series scope...

  • Commented on Nikon Df preview

    Has Fujifilm's X-series been putting the hurt on Nikon? It appears so.

    Big fails:
    1) aperture ring isn't usable on all lenses sporting one
    2) no split-prism option for focusing screen
    3) It costs...

  • If it's too retro then I'll be bugged and will get a Fuji. If it looks more like a mix between a modern ergonomic SLR and a medium format box then I will know that Nikon is on the function over...

  • The clicks sounded a bit exaggerated or distorted to me (listening on a laptop) so I couldn't tell if he was turning a ring or a dial or both.

  • Hmmm... I recently became a fan of rechargeable AA's (Duracell StayCharged in particular) so if the camera got really far on only two AA's I'm totally game. Nothing beats a 15-minute charge for...

  • I want something that I can use to teach my daughter photography the only way I know how to teach it... how I was taught. That would require a fully manual camera.
