  • Commented on Nikon D750 Review preview

    three D750s, thousands and thousands of shots in every shooting scenario imaginable with a wide variety of lenses... No 'shadowed flare'. No, we didn't explicitly test for it (this brouhaha...

    PS i forgot to write this last night so it's shorter than usual as I'm being asked to get back to the family :)

    you cannot compare scores between two models five years apart.

  • I just downloaded the file you linked to and it opened in Photoshop (ACR) at 4016 x 6016 pixels. This would suggest either Capture NX2 is at fault or you've got something set up wrong. Maybe the ...

    accusations of bias might be new to you, as a Canon fan, but having been here for a decade I can assure you they are not new to me. We've been accused of being biased against - and for - every...

    i noticed something kind of like a pattern developing in your comments. When we gave the Canon 70D (your camera) a gold award you congratulated us - 'love the review...like the cam a lot...' But...

    i think you might be waiting a long time for a Nikon with a MFT mount...

  • Commented on Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview

    Well we *do* know that the Nikon system works better (incidentally so does the 1DX) and you don't have to 'customize' it according to subject matter. We've been testing these systems extensively...

  • Hi Willie Where are you downloading the file from (which page)? and which file is it? Thx Simon

    I didn't say you could uncouple them - iTR *is* tracking (that's what the T stands for). Canon does not claim iTR predicts movement but that it uses scene analysis to follow a subject as it moves...

  • (1) We get around 200,000+ posts a month. A small number of volunteer part-time moderators work very hard to keep the forums civil. They get very little thanks from the community for doing it, and ...
