I would rather wait a year and buy a Sony with similar specs for roughly the insurance amount.

Ha ha. You nailed it :)

On Hasselblad unveils pixel-shifting 200MP H5D-200c MS article (230 comments in total)
In reply to:

marcio_napoli: For those saying the price is absurd:

I'm a really, really small fish as a fashion photographer, I can't charge not even a fraction of what this camera cost.

But I've once heard that a big name, national level fashion photographer, charged 60 K for a fashion catalog.

There's another big name I can think of, that shoot bedding and product photography.

His average price is around 30, 40 k per job! I've once heard he charged 95 grand for a larger job.

See? That's where these cameras are finding homes.

For big name photographers, who have their huge reputation tested job after job, nothing makes more sense than a Hasselblad and Phase One.

3 k DSLRs like the D800 only complement their kit for specific needs (higher ISO, more flexibility, need for weather sealing on a beach shooting), and are not their main camera.

Phase and Hassel are their average DSLR.

Buying a used digital back sounds like a good idea that I can explore. Thanks marcio_napoli. I currently use the Nikon D800E.

On Rare Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6L USM goes on sale in UK article (218 comments in total)

For this telephoto range, I would rather carry a 60X bridge camera. The 50X plus range are getting better by the day, which renders the present value of a 1200mm FF lens significantly lower than the asking price.

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1575 comments in total)

Khizer: I own the D800E and was at first tempted beyond reason to trade in my body for the D810. Thanks to this review, I have decided not to be the lab rat.

Consumers are always the lab rat, no matter where the product that they buy sits on the life cycle. My point was that the D800E was a leap forward, and D810 does not offer incrementally 'as much' more to D800E users as the D800E offered over previous generation. Quite frankly, IQ is no better, and in several landscape situations the modified AA filter of the D800E somehow renders crispier pictures - I cannot say pixel level sharpness is better on the D810.

So, I decided to wait wait for the next quantum jump. Meanwhile I will enjoy my D800E. This is not ot say the D810 does not offer a number of subtle improvements over the D800E.

stevens37y: Either the AA filter or the moire will ruin the fun.

Maybe not, IMHO. Moire occurs due to poor resolving power. Maybe some optics expert can clarify...

Islamic architecture is mostly photographed to highlight just the minarets or tombs. This is a brilliant shot taken from an unconventional perspective.

On Adobe releases Camera Raw 8.2 and Lightroom 5.2 article (70 comments in total)

I downloaded the trial version of LR from www.adobe.com but was unable to subsequently purchase it. Apparently from Dubai you cannot buy online, or so it seems. Can anyone who has successfully purchased LR guide me how to go about? Thanks.

Visually impressive but factually incorrect, as Dubai International topped Paris CDG as second busiest airport in the world this year. Forecast is that Dubai will supersede London's Heathrow by 2015. Please go back to the drawing board ;)

In reply to:

Yod: Same sensor,same lens and Probaly the SAME LENS ERROR MESSAGE.Best wishes.Yod

I resent buying the S100 and paying no heed to feedback from some users about the infamous 'lens error'. My camera jammed within a month of the purchsae and I had to spend 50% of the camera price in Dubai to replace the lens unit, because I did not have local warranty. Disappointingly, Canon has shown insolence by using the same lens in their new model.

In reply to:

Yukihyo: I have both a 1D Mk 1V and a 1Ds Mk111, and I can't see any reason why I should change these two reliable marvels of technology for a (supposedly) more sophisticated pseudo-movie camera! We're too quick nowadays to jump on the newest bandwagon, and tend to forget that, just a few years ago, cameras (such as the two mentioned) were considered the epitome of technology.
Just to give you an example; a store here in Tokyo currently has 24 used ID Mark 1V and 17 1Ds Mk111 bodies, mostly in first-rate condition that have been traded on the 1DX....... bloody madness if you ask me! I'll stick with my two until something really worthwhile comes along.

If I find a bargain deal on the 1Ds Mark III, I would happily pick that over the 1Dx!

Give us your first impressions please. Is the image quality (at base ISO) better than 5D3 and D800?

Doesn't someone from Canon read these posts? I wonder why they are so mum about the delay in bringing this camera to the market.

Khizer: Need some advice. I am planning on buying either the Canon 5D Mark iii r Nikon D800 very soon - not because I am a pro but really because I don't want to upgrade for a few years. Can someone tell me if software choice is dependent on the hardware, or are application like Adobe Photoshop CS6 suitable for workflow of either of these cameras? Thanks

Thank you, both. This is helpful.

On Canon issues product advisory for PowerShot S100 article (50 comments in total)

I live in Dubai, and bought the Canon S100 from www.bhphotovideo.com in February 2012. The camera developed the infamous lens erros in April. The camera is under US warranty. When I contacted Canon USA they said I could not have it repaired in Dubai under the warranty, and that I need to send it to the US factory address. They also said I could not send it directly, and need to send it to a friend in USA who will have to send onward to Canon USA. Canon will repair the lens and return the camera to my contact, who will then have to courier it to back to Dubai. I have had the camera repaired in Dubai at a cost of $300. As the lens problem on S100 is now an acknowledged design error, shouldnt Canon pay for the repair expense?
