The joke about 'asking the engineers' isn't appropriate and funny at all. If I worked for Canon as an engineer, I would be upset to know that.

I would probably try to send a CV to Nikon.......

Okay probably Fuji then

Quite a revelation that mirrorless camera market does not need Canon and Nikon to generate more interest.

If Canon and Nikon still don't take this market seriously, then they will eventually pay a price.

On Opinion: Bring on the 70-200mm equivalents article (328 comments in total)

To compete with FF, they should try to make f1.8 zoom lenses like Sigma did.

On Sigma announces dp1 Quattro article (199 comments in total)
In reply to:

RStyga: As much as I like Sigma, they need to drop this Quattro-design fiasco A-S-A-P before they surpass the SD1 original release-price fiasco. WHAT ON EARTH did the designers think when creating the Quattro??? IT IS ugly, IT IS grossly not ergonomic, IT IS not compact in any conceivable way!!! There is nothing positive to this design at all. Sigma wake up...

I would like to hold one before making any conclusions.

It looks quite different as a camera, doesn't it?

Nikon is surely winning the competition by introducing 6th FF camera.

Feel sorry for Canon

Black Box: Burst rate 6 fps. Same sensor, same processing engine. WHY artificially reduce speed! Sony keeps shooting itself in all legs of which it has fewer and fewer.

so 6fps is like brakes failure... wow.. .never heard that before. Thanks for your insight.

Marty4650: This is an interesting camera.

For exactly $100 less than an A6000, you can buy an A5100 and lose your EVF, lose your hot shoe, have a continuious shooting rate half as fast, and end up with a less powerful flash. But at least you would pick up a touch LCD screen.

Who would give up all that to save $100?

Sony already has the A3000 for the budget customer, and it represents an incredible value.

Unless the A5100 is deeply discounted, it should help sell a lot more A6000s. There is simply too much missing for the $100 savings.

I take photos using legacy lenses at the waist level. I have no needs for anything extra a6000 offers.

Does this burst rate limit your photography much?

The question is : who is the cheeky monkey in this story? :)

In reply to:

nikon power: Don't let the price scare you.
Nikon's shutter durability is 200,000 cycles.
$3,299/200,000 = 1.6 cent per picture.
Other branded cameras' durability cycle may be the same or less but the EXIF from their photos won't show NIKON, the King of high end DSLR.

Photos say more about the quality, not the EXIF

I was a little disappointed to read a piece of rumor about a Panasonic camera a while ago, which was copy and paste from a Hongkong socialite's blog.

Now this unboxing article is even better as DPR jump on the bandwagon mocking Leica.

DPR is certainly changing. Let's hope it is for better in a long run.

Someone just got fired in Leica.

In reply to:

Paul Kersey Photography: the most obvious failing in the M3 is the lack of improvements with the ergonomics. The RX100 was an enjoyable camera that could have been better with a decent grip and/or an improved non-slippery surface area.

The Sony grip is rather inexpensive if you wish to add one on. As Babka08 indicated, a leather case will provide sufficient amount of grip.

One way to cure your GAS is buy a Leica and 50mm like Henri Cartier-Bresson did.

On Samsung NX30 Review preview (418 comments in total)
In reply to:

tecnoworld: This is what I wrote one month ago as a comment to the nx30 preview

http://www.dpreview.com/previews/samsung-nx30

'Imo this is a 'just' a good camera, too expensive, that does not shine in any field.'

I see with pleasure that the reviewers share my ideas. Unfortunately those things can't be said on samsung forum.

I'm really happy to see this camera treated for what it's worth. Just another decently good/average camera. NOTHING MORE.

And samsung needs so much more than this to be interesting.

They need to be better than anyone else at a lower price. Not just as good as some, worse than others, at a higher price.

Samsung really needs to go back to school.

And, the shape. Ridicolously big, bulky, dslr like. Please...argh.

Ohhhhh, I'm so satisfied.

DPR is recruiting, quick! :P
