On Nikon D7200 Review preview (558 comments in total)
In reply to:

wombat661: Pretty disingenuous to compare D7200 size with OM-D E-M5 that is a micro 4/3 sensor in your "Shooting Experience" page. You should know better than that. Fujifilm X-E2 is a better comparison for size.
Still, look at the actual numbers, D7200 is only about 1.5" thicker and taller than the X-E2. Then in your "Body and Design" page, you complain that D7200 is not thick enough for a comfortable hold. What do you think would happen if you were to use the even thinner X-E2 camera. That would be torture on your fingers would it not?
Regardless, 1.5" is not going to break your arm or break your camera bag. Remember, lens size is about the same.

Work with both systems, as I have, and you'll immediately appreciate the difference in size and weight.

So, after having carefully studied all the graphs and analysed Roger's conclusions, it looks like [insert my favorite brand here] wins, right?

Thought so.

On Capture One Pro 8 software review article (284 comments in total)
In reply to:

Shirozina: I use C1 but it only looks good with contrasty scenes. If you are shooting on an overcast day or in the shadows LR really does a better job of creating a realistic set of tones in the darker regions.C1 just creates flat muddy shadows. It has the best CA reduction and I suspect it gets a bit more fine detail but when i need to add some dynamism to a flat low contrast scene I'll go with ACR.

@afterburn.

Flat out wrong. Shir made a contentious claim. Onus of proof lies with him.

In reply to:

Nemesis2001: Would have liked a direct comparison with Lightroom. I read everywhere that C1 has better "IQ" than Lightroom, I did a very quick comparison but found nothing drammatically different.

This is NOT a review of Capture One 7.

This is a review of Capture One 8.3 [which has significant improvements over 8.0!!].

Let's keep this discussion relevant.

Thank you.

In reply to:

JakeB: That is one ugly camera.

And yes, it does matter to me.

Those who have no eye for design have no business using cameras in the first place.

If you've no eye for design you're a pedestrian photographer -- a boring amateur or professional, it doesn't matter, but you've no business imposing your dull images on the world.

Become a dentist or plumber instead.

Simply the best mobile photo editing app.

Only available for iOS, of course.

Demon Cleaner: Another day another cut & paste job:

Page 4: "It lacks a couple of the more basic functions that can be really useful on some of its rivals. It would be really useful to be able to zoom in to the chosen focus point in playback mode, to check focus and shake, sadly this is something this is absent."

A double tap on the image enables selective zoom focus at up to 16x magnification. Every Panasonic camera has had this identical functionality for the past half decade.

@ Rishi

You must need the patience of a saint responding to such dolts.
LOL.

Buy a black Fujifilm X100t.

Set the jpegs to black and white.

Done. NO ONE will be able to tell the difference.

Decide what you'll do with the other $9,000 you've just saved.

JakeB: When are we going to see a Nikon D400, the true replacement to my D300s???

LOL.

Sorry. Wanted to post that before someone who was serious made that tired post.

Mention the D400 and all the old farts like HowaboutRAW show up.

Hilarious.

Obviously the Canon shots are better.

Wait. I mean the Nikon.

Would you like to take a test?

Robert Kempen: I have an answer for this one:

When DPR announces a Leica product, just add: "this article is not for people who cannot afford Leica"

All the haters can then look elsewhere and comment on their usual 'blah-blah' I can get something cheaper and have fun, even while they admit that they have never used or tested Leica kit themselves - I believe they are selling more Leica kit with their BS than any marketing that Leica can do themselves!

Happy M240 user with Leica glass

Deal.

Does that include that bore HowaboutRAW not policing every single Leica thread?

Direct link | Posted on May 31, 2015 at 14:09 UTC

Take a great photo on your camera and lens of choice, convert to B&W in Silver Efex or similar, and I guarantee that in an ABX test NO-ONE will be able to tell the difference between that and a great photo from the Leica Monochrom.

You can't buy talent and skill.

In reply to:

GaryJP: They might be assuring us they are going to keep Lightroom as a standalone product, but it is a nightmare to get through their site without being signed up to a Creative Cloud you don't want. They are just pushing the standalone right to the periphery.

Liars. As we always knew.

Get lost, Rossberg. Go troll somewhere else.

In reply to:

Jim Salvas: For once, I see no reason to install an OS-X upgrade. This is pathetic.

And for those who claim it's free software and I shouldn't complain, no it's not free. I pay for it through the premium prices on my Apple products. The premium for an Apple laptop just became worth a little less.

No, Jim.

When you buy an Apple computer, you're paying for that piece of hardware and the software it comes with.

PC users need to PAY for the next version of Windows that comes out, Apple users DO NOT need to pay for the next version of OS X.

So lose your sense of entitlement.
