On article Retro through-and-through: Fujifilm X-Pro2 Review (2453 comments in total)

IF it was retro it would be full-frame.The problem with halfframe APS-C at 24 megapixels is the NOISE. They are already coming back to the market secondhand.And surely if I can touchscreen focus on my mobile Ishould be able to do it on ANY digital camera. I expect to be able to look through a viewfinder and use my thumb onscreen to move the focus point around . We ALL do .

On article Two in one: LG G5 camera review (68 comments in total)

I bought a G4 because the results from raw are good. JPEG on an LG is execrable so why post rrsults instead of just saying you have to use RAW. The other reason to buy is the panoramas but thry are hopeless as thry have thr same lowres blocky appearance the jpegs here have with added massive exposure shifts on any scene not being the same tone everywhere. It alters exposure as you pan instead of using a single consistent exposure

On article Nikon D500 real-world sample gallery updated (67 comments in total)

For the record in case you havent noticed the price of nrw cameras of this class has doubled: as with the a 6300 and the xpro2 . This d500 now costs new the same amount as TWO D800 bodies secondhand or a new D810 online.

At least its battery life like the d810 nikon is around 4x what a Sony A7r or Nex battery can manage and it is weatherproof . A Sony battery takes double the time in-camera the 810 nikon does in-charger, or the Canon and the pro machines do a 1000 plus shots per charge not 300 plus so as we chuckle at the suckera who waste their savings their hardearned cash on a machine that dies after an hour or so we should perhaps help them avoid such error.

its amazing whateven 16 mp can capture and still produce images 4 feet wide. I can do this beautifully even with my G4 mobile with everything in focus too whilst recording the Proms on R3, so this small machine replaces my need to drool over the 1DX.
You may laugh but much current debate neglects current realities when one is being invited to send the cost of a new car on a Canon.

I try but fail to understand. I try hard, I still have my 1DsMkII, but fantastic though it is, it is used little, replaced by the D800. Now why do Vanon continue with these 18-22MP full frame models at all?
IF you want fast frame rates and prefer accidental timing to your own choices, anything much cjeaper will do, and is all you deserve, but I want a 50MP 1Ds with the same 0.042msrc lag my 2004machine has. Not some obsolete low res machine, as I have got one already.

On article Upwardly mobile: Sony a6300 Review (2076 comments in total)

dear folks, I just cancelled an order for an A7R because of the batteries . I cant get past anyone charging money for a machine that like the 6300 shoots video, very good video, but for only an hour per battery and has no charger for home or car you can charge more batteries with. My thoughts will doubtless be mocked by many, but I can guarantee you will never be happy with a Nex outside the office, on a trip or in the rain, and a touchscreen waterproofedmobile will do 4k for a lot longer , amd unlike your average Nex, wont overheat amd shut down in video draining the baytety like my Nex7 did, yours sincerely, a photographer

On article Microsoft Lumia 950 camera review (116 comments in total)

16:9 is vital. However it requires better sensors with 16mp plus to avoid noise. Even a G4 LG is noisy, and ceryainly this 950 does not improve upon it, so O tend to use an 808 for low noise and high resolution even over a D800 in circumstances where I need max depth of field , and have got to really enjoy what 16:9 can do.I'd wait till Nokia arrive with the nextgenhiresolution

On article Sony Alpha 7R II Review (2160 comments in total)

I'm not convinced as its reactions are much slower than mine with offbrand lenses. Manual focus shutter lag of a tenth of a second on a £2600 body.......

The G5 plugin concept for lenses? This surely reminds us of Ricohs great plugin modules for that tablet ( you know the good one) a decade ago. Apple will need a mich better 16:9 sensor so a complete restructuring first of all, and a fast 24mm lens, as on the G4 the macro is so good I can fill the screen with a single Xmas cactus bloom. So thats macroish already.
Apple has yet to learn to put the lens in the centre, its how dumb they and those who buy Iphones are( correct spelling!)

By the time their planned obsolescence has reached 2010 (check specs on n8 Nokia, big 12mp sensor, radio etc) the oppostion will have inbuilt tv recorders (v10 lg) as well as 4K on larger sensors, and plugon modules using fibreoptic cables to send imagery to the sensor, or a clone of the camera that plugs in to give you true 4k 3D movies, yay

It is what photographers with failing eyesight nee, but unhappily uses a smaller sensor than it should with a too slow lens, and it might be ablr to cope eith its own jpegs but raw? Do apples even do raw on these devices and ?their phones?
So who is it or the big one for exactly?

leicas can be had if use film for less than a new dslr.plus entrants can use any achine at all. What stops it dead in its tracls is limiting it to under 25s and to 'professionals
But at least entry is free, whereas the BJ's 'Portrait of Britain' costs to enter and is only for images for which you have a signed model release- an impossible condition for reportage!!

I shall wait until it has 42mp plus and a choice of interchangeable lenses. In other words an M420AF , it wont be long coming.
