neil holmes: Wonder what that organic element is made from?

Blue whale oil? Anyone know?

More importantly how stable is it? Does it handle temperature change the same as the elements around it?

And the really big question......how well will it work on the Sony A7Rii?

I believe it's made of unicorns.

On Bang for the Buck: Olympus OM-D E-M10 II Review article (579 comments in total)
In reply to:

Chippy99: @Jeff, Jordan,

I am reliably informed that your comparison table "Compared to E-M10 and E-M5 II" contains an error in that the E-M5 II has an LCD, not an OLED viewfinder.

Cheers

The table says that the E-M5 II has an OLED display. It's the original E-M10 that has the LCD.

aramgrg: Review???

We were told that it was a production model when it was given to us. It's running firmware 1.0.

This has been fixed, thanks.

In reply to:

IchiroCameraGuy: Studio shots seem so soft, even compared to EM10 predecessor and JPEG or RAW. Good sharpening is usually a Olympus trait. The money is especially odd looking.

This is something we're taking a look at, along with the apparent improvement in noise performance vs other m4/3 cameras.

Thomas Ludwig: Hey there, we (COSYSPEED) will roll out a crowd-funding in the first week of September with an innovative carry system for mirrorless cameras. 1st to 30th of September will be the period. We do have prototypes and would love to send one to you for PIX... Tom

Sent you a PM.

On Rough and ready: Olympus Tough TG-4 review article (242 comments in total)
In reply to:

Lan: Wow, you people are curmudgeonly bunch. I think the performance is pretty amazing for a rugged underwater compact camera, particularly by the time you add in things like the wireless flash control and RAW support. No, it doesn't give D810 image quality, but you can't expect it to - it costs a small fraction of that.

It's probably the best underwater compact yet. Give Olympus some credit.

@DPR: Were the underwater shots taken using the Underwater WB setting?

@Lan, both Program and underwater were used. If there's one image in particular you want to know about let me know.

In reply to:

wvdvegte: Intro: "A sensor-shift image stabilization system helps reduce the effects of camera shake, and seemed to be effective in the time we spent with the camera."

Conclusions / Cons: "only digital image stabilization"

???

The above replies are correct. I'l adjust the text.

Which photos are you referring to specifically? We will have good news about downloading original Raw files from the gallery soon.

Cheng Bao: Seems sony hold an a7r2 event in portland, so the test units are shared by media.

Does DPR got a unit in lab?

We will have one very soon.

On Fujifilm announces X-T1 IR for infrared photography article (203 comments in total)
In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: Didn't Fuji have an infrared forensic camera before? I think I had one.

Since cameras already have more than enough megapixels and brands that use an AA blur filter have realized they can charge more for leaving it out, the final enhancement (meaning something to make people "upgrade" yet again) will be a camera that can do both regular and infrared photography via an internal filter switch. Pay a bit more for one camera, but only have to buy and carry one. Then, you can dabble in infrared without a big commitment. Sigma almost did this by accident but somebody will do it eventually.

Yup:

In reply to:

SmilerGrogan: Thanks for the cat pictures. Embarrassingly, they are a great test of lenses because feline fur has both the qualities of fine detail and soft fluffiness. It's hard for a lens to make fur look both sharply defined AND petable.

Even though it's a cliche that many photographers take pictures of their cats because they're too shy to ask women to pose for them, it remains a valid test of sensors and lenses and you guys should mandate a cat photo in every sample gallery.

Well that was half a compliment :)

If you haven't been to the museum in Seattle (right below the Space Needle) I *highly* recommend it.

In reply to:

steve_hoge: Confused by the statement in the preview: "the FZ300 combines optical and digital image stabilization."

I saw the 5-axis optical stabilization explained in an earlier panel - where does the digital image stabilization come in?

That's for 1080p (and below) video, where the camera combines the two to create a sort of 5-axis IS system.

Direct link | Posted on Jul 16, 2015 at 21:45 UTC
In reply to:

cgarrard: DPR- Are you absolutely sure its the same exact sensor as the FZ200? It's a 4 yr old sensor (if you consider development time as well), so that seems a bit odd. Surely the specs are similar, but is it the exact same model sensor? That would both surprise me, and not surprise me at the same time (laughs).

Thanks,

Carl

We were told by Panasonic that the sensor is the same. It's the new Venus Engine that makes the difference.

Direct link | Posted on Jul 16, 2015 at 16:41 UTC
In reply to:

ThePhilips: ... If the sensor is not the same (very likely) then I think the Panasonic should sue the DPR for slander, libel and defamation. Just saying.

Because DPR might well have just killed the FZ300 launch by claiming that the sensor is the same old one. Such rumors, once they are out there, are impossible to deal with.

And to teach DPR a lesson that when you are #1 site, with the largest audience, one has to choose the words carefully.

We wouldn't make a statement like that if we weren't confident that it was true.

In reply to:

NZ Scott: Dpreview: I think you've made an error with the statement "it continues to offer the splash and dust-proof construction of its predecessor". My understanding is that the GX7 was not dust/splash-proof.

You are correct, sir. I have fixed this.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX8 makes leap to 20MP article (168 comments in total)
In reply to:

jhinkey: So questions:
- Is this a multi-aspect sensor - seems like it is based on the image sizes - they don't appear to be cropped
- Does IBIS work with legacy glass
- Does DFD do anything to help focus with my 43 150/2 Oly?

Seems like a nice upgrade from the GX7 except for the size increase . .

I can only answer the first question, and it's "no"
