On Fujifilm X-T1 First Impressions Review preview (1657 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ulfric M Douglas: Is the X-E2's EVF as good (but less magnified) as the E-M1's EVF?
Is it the same, similar, or better once it's magnified to X-T1's size?

The actual OLED display is the same.

historianx: You say the X-T1 has a touch screen like the Em-1.... But the spec says it doesnt (i hope). Which is it?

no touchscreen, sorry

In reply to:

semorg: if you're going to start with, "By putting a 24 megapixel full-frame sensor into a body nearly the same size as the Olympus E-M1, the Alpha 7 is arguably the most ambitious camera Sony has ever made"
Then why not review A7r ???

A7r review is forthcoming.

On Sony Alpha 7 Review preview (1600 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dan Vincent: There are still factual errors in this even though I noted them in the preview. The a7 (and a7r) have wired cable releases available; they now use the Sony Multi Terminal Cable (which plugs into the USB port of the camera). This port can use either the new Sony wired remote RMVPR1 or an adapter to use the old Minolta style remotes.

Fixed that, thanks for the catch.

JDThomas: "JK doesn't have a booth at the show, but we visited them in a hotel suite..."

Pssst. Hey kid, wanna see some top quality camera gear? Meet me in the back alley behind the Rio Hotel. I'll cut you in on a good deal.

Actually, their suite was in one of the nicest hotels in town!

On CES 2014: Nikon Stand Report article (66 comments in total)
In reply to:

Timbukto: Is the xxArray just a tech demo or a commercially successful product? It boggles my mind that they can create an instant way to put someone into a video game using 68 tethered DSLRs...yet *no* company has truly made compelling tethered wi-fi controls to tablets or smartphones. Simply mind-boggling the priority they have. I would have said previously that they didn't have the resources to do it...but apparently they have enough software engineering or resources to pour into a game where you seek out D610s? Reality Check...put some *intelligent* features into your camera's and people will be seeking out D610's in reality and not a video game.

I think it's more of a tech demo at this point. More details:

On From NEX to Alpha: Sony introduces 20 megapixel a5000 article (155 comments in total)
In reply to:

EinsteinsGhost: " though the a5000 seems a natural extension of the NEX-5 line."

Not really. The a5000 is a natural extension of NEX-3 line.

According to Sony, it's the replacement for the NEX-3N.

peevee1: DPR, you have a mistake in the specs, it is f/2.8-5.6 lens, not f/2.0-5.6.

Fixed both of those issues, thanks.

In reply to:

ET2: Funny DPR still did not include Nex-C3 with 16-50 in size comparison page

Why is that?

Probably since the NEX-C3 has long been discontinued :)

On Swimming with the Nikon 1 AW1 article (199 comments in total)
In reply to:

sugardaddy: I couldn't find anything mentioned in the original article. Was the supplied silicone grease applied to the O-ring at all, either first time attaching the lens or before the dip?

I know a lot of people originally wanted a dial of some kind but the zoom buttons act as a dial, which is pretty intuitive to me (I own the AW1). Buttons are a LOT easier to waterproof than moving knobs.

First of all, despite what some of the commenters here are saying, I *did* read the waterproofing section before using the camera.

Second, the manual says to "inspect" the O-Ring before going attaching the lens, which is exactly what I did. It also says that the silicone is to improve the lifespan of the ring and to make attaching the lens easier. Since the camera was new - and the manual did not mention it - I did not apply any silicone.

On Swimming with the Nikon 1 AW1 article (199 comments in total)
In reply to:

Binone: Hi Jeff:
You and I were on Maui with an AW1 at about the same time. I agree with your comments and the pros & cons. The first day I was in the water with it - also at Kaanapali - I really couldn't see much on the LCD. I had the camera set to the center focus area and a lot of shots were out of focus. So, the next time, I set it to automatic focus, but it was worse. That day was very sunny and I think that it focused on bubbles & specs in the water. So, I changed it back to center focus, and also found the LCD brightness setting and got better results, although I never saw a turtle -great shot.

Unfortunately, after 4 days I noticed that the glass cover over the front of the lens would immediately fog when I put the camera in the water. This didn't happen the first few days I was there, so obviously moisture entered the camera, but it kept working. Like you, I was very careful with it. It's now at Nikon's service center. I hope that the solution is simple.

Interesting! I didn't see any other AW1's, so I must've missed you. Sounds like water got through the O-Ring!

Nope, didn't put silicone on the o-ring the first time - didn't even think about it since it was nice and new. on the second camera, I did. Looking at the damage to the camera, it seems like the water came in through the door over the I/O ports.

Thanks to the feedback from some readers, I discovered that Nikon does indeed include the O-Ring protector. It's attached to the body cap (something I didn't even notice when I took it off), so you just snap it off and put it over the ring. Apologies for the error.

In reply to:

iBuzz: I have the Nikon AW1 and the O-Ring protector is INCLUDED with the camera. Look on the body cap! It's one of the first thing you get in the user manual.

Thanks, will re-check this one.
