vFunct: The best kind of photography are street photography, like this guys.

The worst kind of photography are the garbage you see on 500px. That site is filled with thousands of photographer, all without a sense of taste.

The funny part is that those idiots have NO clue why they are terrible, or why street photography is more valuable than landscape photography. They have no idea how worthless their photographs are.

Remember, if you think the landscape photography you find at 500px is good, you are a terrible photographer, and you should be ashamed.

Professionals laugh at you, just to let you know.

Having a bad day D Funct?

I probably won't use it - but I think I'll buy one for that gadget on the bottom. Give the ego a boost and impress someone at the same time. :-)

LWW: I am torn! what shall I do! will it be the 38 mp phone or the 50 Phase one! Both news within hours of each other.

You're right, but I'll get the phone first so as I can phone the bank to arrange a second mortgage for the other.

I despise these 'photographers' 'creating' these images from the misfortune of their mankind. Whatever their underlying motives maybe, they intend to profit from their scavenger, carrion methods.

The Kodak 'Instamatic' of the new age, will look just like the 126 format in years to come and be just as disappointing.

Kurt_K: Do we even need silly awards and percentage scoring? I'd be happy with just the pros and cons list and the IQ test results. Pretty easy to make up my own mind from there. Oh, but I guess I'm forgetting that most of the folks here don't want to make up their own mind; they want the camera aficionados to make it up for them.

I get my jollys just reading the comments - this font of knowledge is much more insightful than a any 'ole Dpreview review :-)

going over the specs... nice...nice... good... very good ... and bang! sync speed 1/180!! why Ricoh why?
Just that point. Puzzling to me.

Flash? What's that? I found the K5(s) good enough to never use it.

Marcus Beard: I really like this article - can't understand all the hate. Would be much easier to create such an image with a tilt shift lens (using the shift then stitching undistorted panoramas). In fact it's inspired me to try

Consider a telephoto lens perspective with a wide angle view, I use it often.

I still have my star burst filter from the early eighties, still in pristine condition and will forever remain so!

DigiMatt: Let me get this straight DPReview. You will not review the EOS-1D X professional camera that cost $6,800 but you will review the $11,800 200-400L professional zoom lens. DPReview staff, which camera is most likely to be used with this lens?

I have heard your lame excuses that Canon will not give you a 1D X to review. We are supposed to believe that despite being owned by Internet giant Amazon, DPReview cannot afford to rent a 1D X for a week to give a quick review and post raw samples? Your reason is nonsensical. Get off your butts, spend the $317 to rent one for a week and stop being lame.


I suppose if one was that keen to get the low down on this camera he would spend the $317.00, really find out for his own peace of mind before coughing up $6,800 on anothers recommendation.

kff: Pentax makes wonderful and useful cameras ...


The way is a full wi-fi remote control and LifeView not Eye-fi SD card ... see Samsung NX300 ... what a pity - Samsung doesn't have AF adapter for Pentax lenses !!!
And next a big value of NX ... The code of the Samsung NX mirrorless cameras is now available as open source .... and it is a very wise !!!

So right, and eloquently stated. So many with a 'depth of knowledge' in cameras - but not a lot to show with image impact.

On Classic lines when clients want you to work for free article (141 comments in total)

Just maybe the demise of the paid professional photographer is imminent. Could it be that it is coming to be irrelevant? It is after all a business model from days long past and certainly not current. If you expect to bounce around and just 'take photos' and be paid for it well you are doomed to fail, because every man, and his digital savvy dog is out to do that, because every man, and the dog, can have a go at it. If you can not take up the complete process from preparation, planning, capture to output, ie, edit, print, frame, sell, display, diversify to all sorts of income making avenues then suffer the consequences.

In reply to:

mark25: sadly, another camera review with horrible sample photos... i'm afraid no one pays attention to the samples anymore here on dpreview.com... back in the day, when most reviews were done by Phil Askey, the samples were so much better in terms of content and composition...

My experience is the zoom used is just marvellous. I have most of the DA & prime lenses but the 18-135 is just as good and very versatile.

Pablo4: big camera, small sensor. nothing new, progressive, interesting here to see

I can only concur, such is the depth of knowledge by some posters it is surprising they are not successful manufacturers themselves! Its only a camera, if it doesn't suit - don't buy it, but leave it at that.

On Photoshop CC: Adobe responds to reaction article (1852 comments in total)
In reply to:

mferreira: What I am most troubled about, and I've not seen anyone thinking about it, is the incentive for updating software and improving technology. Think about it, if the software is sold, then Adobe has a huge incentive to better their product up so that the costumer buys a new version and keep the cash flow. If the software is rented (and if that is the only choice the customer has) then the cash flow is guaranteed and there is little incentive to improve the product. The only incentive to improve will be fear of competition, which means that the competition will have to not only become slightly better than Adobe, but much better because of the natural resistance to change of the human being. As we all know, there is no possible competition of this quality at this stage...

Of course, this will not happen immediately (or else, everyone would switch back to CS6) but I'm counting on it to happen in a few years...

Got it nailed, Adobe realise they have run their race. There is only so much that can be of practical improvement to make the consumer cough up their hard earned. So when you run out of ideas go the pay up or we withhold route.
