On Nikon D5500 adds touchscreen and flat picture profile article (211 comments in total)
In reply to:

D1N0: How many colours does it come in? What about the weather sealing? Does it have a pentaprism VF? Can you use legacy AF glass on it?

The F mount hasn't changed for decades and Nikon made some legendary glass during this time. So yeah, you can use some legacy legendary F-mount glass on it (no metering, albeit), unlike the Porst, Ricoh, Vivitar and Rokinon cr*p that I've seen Pentax users use.

Colours ? Sorry, it's not a camera made for 14 year old girls, it's actually intended for pictures, as an entry in the Nikon system. It takes itself seriously.

Weather sealing ? This is an entry level camera, you have the D7100, D750, Df, D810 and D4s available new, with weather sealing, should you want to pursue sports, wildlife and landscape photography. You wouldn't pursue that with an entry level camera, would you. The fact that Pentax only makes 2 or 3 cameras and makes 2 of them weather sealed is not Nikon's problem. Their most advanced camera is a D7100 wannabe.

Pentaprism VF? No, it's an entry level camera, though I hear it has a nice AF system *wink wink*

This camera might be D40 offspring, but it packs a punch.

Everyone's announcing cameras and Ricoh is announcing announcements. What have they been smoking?

In reply to:

HFLM: On Nikonrumors a response of Nikon can be found to one commentor:
"I am sorry to learn about your disappointment [...] however that we are aware of the this effect and Nikon considers it to be within the quality standards. When photographing scenes with an extremely bright light source (such as the sun or high intensity lighting) is at a certain position along the top border of the frame, this sort of visual effect is common and may occur when shooting using any digital SLR camera.Therefore it does not indicate a problem with the camera's design and we do not plan to implement any measures to address this."

They'll fix it right after someone starts a legal proceeding against them.

In reply to:

nicolaiecostel: DPreview, could you shed some light on the recent accusations made towards the D750, about the nasty flare issue ?

I think that could be quite a sizeable CON.

As far as I'm concerned, if it behaves differently from a similar camera, it's either a feature or a bug.

Change, Change, Change, Pay, Pay, Pay. But Nikon who is chasing? The dust and oil on the sensors SONY !!!

Una Reflex ogni 2-3 mesi dal 2012 in poi, mettendo soltanto 1 vite in più per modello.
Cambiare, Cambiare, Cambiare, Pagare, Pagare, Pagare. Ma Nikon chi sta rincorrendo? La polvere e olio sui sensori SONY!!!

Trip Trip: Go back to that cave you came out of.

I thought Nikon had nothing for me, as a D700 wedding shooter. The D8xx had too many MP and the D4/s price could not be justified.

I really squinted when this was announced but it seems that they have done everything righ, I might have to test it in a store.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview (1303 comments in total)
In reply to:

Singh: mmmmmm! Silver award!!

The original 7d was class leading when it was first released and I see the MkII also as class leading. I've now moved over to the 6D FF but if I was in the market for a new APS-C camera I would not hesitate to buy the 7D MkII.

The original 7d had poor IQ since it was released. I can still remember the ISO100 noise in the shadows of the gallery jpegs.

On Leica M9 users report sensor corrosion issue article (378 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ron Poelman: It's NOT corrosion ! It's an interesting patina you can only get on Leica.

Actually, they should declare this a feature and charge you for it, in accordance to the number of spots and the pattern obtained.

In reply to:

boarderphreak: Always fun to watch the Leica bashers crawl out of the woodwork. Because you know, this has *never* happened to any other manufacturer. Sh*t happens. The real test is how the respective company deals with it. And deal with it they will (check back tomorrow).

Listen, when you have oil spots is one thing, you can clean them. But when Leica, a reputable brand, has problem with Shott glas, another reputable brand, and you paid 8000 for the camera, then you have a problem.

On Medium well done: Two takes on the Pentax 645Z article (250 comments in total)
In reply to:

The Davinator: I've been enjoying my 645Z for a few months now. It is a fantastic tool that gives 4x5 film a serious run for its money. Once you get used to its files for landscape, 35mm FF seems puny in comparison.

Yeah, cause the sensor in that 645 pentax is so huge :))

On Real-world test: Nikon D750 at the Museum of Flight article (281 comments in total)

Love these videos. Much better than a 25 page review, although much less informative.

It would be great if you could post your usual in-depth reviews along with these videos.

On Real-world test: Going pro with the Samsung NX1 article (370 comments in total)

I see nothing pro about shooting some dying fish in the morning sun.

More to the point:

- what is the viewfinder lag like in low light. As far as I could see, you shot as the light kept getting better. Will I get motion sickness in real low light ?

- how is the AF in low light, in both single shot accuracy and tracking. You took some demo shots in bright light.

- what is the noise in low light ? You shot as the sun was getting high in the sky, so that's no real indicator for noise as far as I am concerned.

- what is the battery life ? Is the pro going to have to change batteries every 300 shots or it will last for thousands, like the professional cameras ?

- can we really talk about a pro contender when the camera doesn't even has a multi selector for the focus points, and you have to click the screen to change focus points quickly ?

Are you suggesting that solely because it has 15 FPS, 28 megapixels and two 2.8 weatherproofed zooms, it should be a tool for professionals ?

On Panasonic DMC-CM1 to go on sale in UK article (154 comments in total)

This is the future for those wanting a phone that takes nice photos. The problem with all the current smartphone, except the Samsung K and S4 zoom is that the lens is fixed and the focal length is rather wide.

This restricts the usage of the camera or offers substandard results.

On UK Landscape Photographer of the Year winners announced article (157 comments in total)

Number 6 looks like it's made with an iPhone and instagramed. 9 is not a landscape, it's a bloody tree and nr. 8 and 7 are architectural photographs. 1 is inexplicable, nr. 2 is a picture of a lady taking a hike. I mean, c'mon !

In reply to:

RStyga: These announcements in the MF sector reinforce Pentax 645 digital series system as the most user-friendly, cost-friendly and full-featured one by far. Some pros would still pay the insane price of a Phase One (I'm referring to the cost of the matching back not the body or lenses) because of a certain feature they need but for everyone else Pentax 645 digital is the king.

Pros make no cutbacks and you can rent the stuff as well. The Pentax is an all-round nice, cheap setup. It sits in the MF world pretty much like their 135 crop camera bodies sit in the 135 world.

CNY_AP: Seems like they are simply copying the human eye which is a good idea.

The brain has to do a lot of corrections on the image it receives from the eyes. The human eyes are not a benchmark for precision.
