On Canon EOS 7D Mark II: A professional's opinion article (511 comments in total)
In reply to:

MisterPootieCat: Sorry Bettina, you lost me at "a color profile that reminded me of puke". It sounds like you can't even figure out how to get the color profile right. There's no evidence to support your claim either.

@MisterPootieCat: that is not true. The colors of the 7D really looked like puke if you use the jpgs or the Canon Profiles in DPP or Lightroom. There would be a lot of work necessary to get the colors right. Natural broad daylight was ok but anything else, especially high-iso, looked like crap. Even the old 5D looked much better.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II: A professional's opinion article (511 comments in total)
In reply to:

AksCT: This article does not claim to be a "comprehensive and technical review" of the camera. It contains a lot of subjective and personal views of the author. Clearly, as posted in these comments, others have broad and differing personal views.
However, it is quite disappointing to see unrelated and inappropriate comments.

If the comments turn out to be the ones i'm reading here, yes, please don't comment!

Oh yeah? And how would one get the colors right? Excessive RAW processing? They shoot jpg and they certainly don't sit at home profiling the camera, this needs to look good out of the box. And as far as i remember my 7D it didn't. It really didn't.

In reply to:

ozturert: I still wonder what she was using when she tried original 7D. "Puke" color profile is the same as all other Canons.
And why does she want "lenses true to their focal length"??? Then I guess she has never used 1D (non-S) series with APSH sensor (probably she got "puke" color profile from those, too ;) ).

No its not. The 7D really had the worst canon colors. I totally understood what she meant with that comment. High ISO also looked like sh*t.

On Canon introduces new $78K 50-1000mm cine lens article (174 comments in total)
In reply to:

pfzt: that is a lot of comments about a thing that no one here will ever lay hands on but everybody has an opinion about it just because of the price. It's really amazing, just write 35000$ or 128000$ on something and suddenly everybody has something to say :) Why is that?

haha, i guess you're right but i wish the comments would be better.

On Zeiss introduces 'no distortion' Otus 1.4/85mm article (338 comments in total)

if this thing is as sharp as the 55mm:

then it will be worth every penny. i assume the bokeh will be outstanding too.

this is the 85mm on a D800:

So far i'm not disappointed with the typical dpreview discussion about a new lens for a camera system that nobody here actually owns. It's like discussing a Bugatti Veyron: it's a car and everybody has a car, so he assumes he could say anything about it.

On Accessory Review: Drobo Mini RAID article (149 comments in total)
In reply to:

karlchwe: I haven't seen anybody mention this, and it is important:

"RAID" doesn't necessarily mean greater data security. Depending on the type of RAID, It can mean less security but greater performance, or greater security AND performance (but increased cost, as you would expect), or various levels of both.

The most flexible and future-proof option for RAID is probably to buy a great big PC, and install some hard drives and a RAID controller card in it. Nothing is proprietary. You can add other types of backup, like tape, DVD, online, whatever. It can have any kind of port: USB, Lightning, FireWire, etc. Any hard drives will work. It might even be cheaper than these proprietary boxes too, but there is possibly more setup hassle.

But I am not in the industry any more. Am I out of date?

"I am clearly not in tune with wife issues"

be happy about that, they question everything that is fun ;)

I think that the "great big PC" may be the problem. Those things are usually not wife-approved and many people buying iMacs and Macbooks nowadays, so they need some external configuration.

Peiasdf: Public employees were getting too fat and lazy to climb the stairs anymore so they had to build a new union-accessible building and demolish this wonderful building.

Nice trolling. Even the buzz words "union" and "public employer" make an appearance. Must be a nightmare for you guys that people still get paid for their work. Better make them slaves at Koch Industries right away…

madeinlisboa: Meanwhile, Nikon replaces Capture NX with a (not free) great piece of crap. Nice one Nikon!

that was a really unexpected and embarrassing move from Nikon. I still don't get it :(

In reply to:

b craw: Well executed, thus charming vignettes of domesticity. Some are perhaps overly-familiar motifs - pensive child through window, something out of natural context (dog) in a photo bag, etc. - but I doubt that these endeavor to be cutting edge in terms of concept or visual outcome. They are nice, and I suspect, compelling to a large portion of the viewers here.

"They are nice, and I suspect, compelling to a large portion of the viewers here."

lol! mean and true ;)

Duckie: If they put it to glasses, they would earn so much money that they can give up their camera business!

that is true. the coating even on expensive glasses is really weak.

On Nikon D4s First Impressions Review preview (1048 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sad Joe: So the D4s is slighly better than a 3 year old Canon 5d3 which sells for well under 1/2 price - wow - must change all my kit - NOT. Guys don't be suckered - BOTH Canon & Nikon could bring out VASTLY better cameras for the same or less money - but won't as they wish to DRIP FEED us improvements and get us to keep updating our kit. Only fools with money to burn follow their lead - and don't give me the 'pros update all the time to stay ahead'. Rubbish - real - I have to make money - pro's are VERY careful about spending money….

Nobody needs 30.000 ISO but everybody needs better IQ at 1600-6400 ISO. The better the extreme ISO performance, the better the performance in that particular range, i guess.

In reply to:

Lloyd709: disappointed only works for CS6 and upwards - couldn't stand the cropping tool on CS6 and don't want to go monthly so sticking with CS5 - I guess it's the first of many plugins I won't be able to use!

what? the cropping tool is by far the best thing about cs6! how can one not like it?

this is one of the very rare occasions where i agree with everyone here: these pics are fantastic! Not only the look but also the composing and the diversity. people were really competent in older times. if you just have a few shots, you better think hard what to capture ;)
