On Sony a6000 Review preview (713 comments in total)
In reply to:

Karroly: I do not understand why DPR reviewer is bothered by the vertical black bars on the rear LCD when shooting 3:2 stills. Obviouly, given the body size/layout, Sony designers could not make the screen taller with a 3:2 ratio. So why not use the available space on the left and right sides to display a larger picture in 16:9 movie mode ?

This Sony screen is just too small. Without the evf it's usability goes down to mere guessing. The camera backs are too small either. For real work, especially with a touchscreen I would need a minimally 4-4.5'' screen.

midimid: Wait - 'there's no real portrait prime' on E-mount? Isn't there a 50mm 1.8 from the original lineup? And a 55mm 1.8 on FE?

As long as the missing portrait lens concerns there is the Sony 135mm F1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar. It is the best 135mm available, and there is also the LA-EA4 adapter (FF). Then this camera will not miss anything for great portraits.As a cheaper option there is the Minolta MAXXUM AF 85mm f/1.4 used (wonderful).

mister_roboto: That's only a f2-2.8 ff equivelent- pffft ;)

@joejack951:pros would not trade in usability for a massive amount of glass. The DOF is a calculated measure and matched with the particular theme of image. "Bokeh" is not always a welcomed feature.

On Samsung NX30 Review preview (404 comments in total)

This is the camera body what you can use with the Samsung NX 16-50mm F2.0-2.8 S ED OIS, the Samsung NX 60mm F2.8 Macro ED OIS SSA, and the Samsung NX 85mm F1.4 ED SSA. The 30mm f2 and the 45mm f1.8 are also very nice. So using these lenses can mitigate the fact that the NX30 body has a full front branding saying: SAMSUNG. A little piece of tape can handle that issue.

It seems to me from checking the portfolio that Mr. Hurley is using more than one PP assistants. Yes, I agree with below posters I would let go the "nose" and "eye" guy for sure.

bobus: These aren't portraits. These are just pictures of faces.

@bogdescu: No, not interchangeable. With good people!s skills you can get jobs through Dona Karan and you can get the best composition advice from the best photographers who you made acquaintance with and who are happy to help you with their advice. For mediocre talents with great people's skills the sky is the limit.

Mike FL: IMHO: So far, the BEST low light IQ sub $500 APS-C camera is Fujifilm X-A1.

The Sumsung NX3000 may not look as plastic-like as Fujifilm X-A1, but IQ is everything.

X-A1 has a Sony sensor.

Anyway this is a gorgeous design. And by Christmas it will cost peanuts.

This fuss about lenses did not harm Leica and did not enhance the credibility of DPR either. Not even a lose-lose situation.

I would never buy this camera, because my priority is taking photos, and consider this as an unnecessarily pricey accessory, but I have two remarks:

1. I find the UI very which should followed and developed. In this regard the 3.7"LCD is a minimum size.

2. Leica should sell a rebadged Samsung NX mini as the Leica T* Mini.

High IQ doesn't satisfy me. I would never buy such a camera because I am a status obsessed snob and spec loving geek.

Elaka Farmor: How can RX100 (with its much smaller sensor and more megapixels) have better dynamic range and color depth, and a two years old olympus with a smaller sensor (E-PM2) have much better low light ISO??http://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare/Side-by-side/Canon-PowerShot-G1-X-Mark-II-versus-Sony-Cyber-shot-DSC-RX100-II-versus-Olympus-PEN-E-PM2___941_896_840

One other aspect: Sony ISOs are overrated (DXOMark)

Please check DXOmark sensor comparison - measurements - dynamic range, and you will see that Sony RX100 MII is 1.5 stop better at ISO 100. half stop better at ISO 200, and then they are the same all the way until Sony has no ISO stop, but the CANON has. Numbers without the charts doesn't mean anything.

On Hands on with the Pentax 645Z article (647 comments in total)

This CMOS-based MF camera outshines D800 class in just a few domains, e.g. like large-scale prints. If any manufacturer comes up with a 48-55 MP FF-size sensor, the advantages may be diminishing fast. The MF class attraction is more the CCD-based sensor's quality and image style than size itself. The MF CMOS sensor may take these cameras more to outdoor shooting sessions, but the CMOS rendering is not what everybody wants in this class. No wonder Sony tries to implant this sensor in every current MF camera.

Rubbish ideas from rubbish minds made rubbish picture. What a waste of talents. But the no soda, no sugar, no carbs life is a good idea: could and should make better pictures. Although, if rubbish pictures can change the world: why not?

_P: If by any chance Sigma marketing is sweeping through forums in order to gather hints for product demands then I'd suggest next Prime Art lent to be 135mm/2 or maybe even /2.8

Any supporters? :)

Sigma supports you. There is a 150mm F2.8 Macro. Pretty old, but not much problems

gandu: These pictures are not bad or offensive in any way, they are nice, but not exceptional, forgetting technical stuff. Most of you just go for the 'hip', 'nostalgic', 'artistic', 'simple is powerful' but actually dull and unexciting B&W. You actually get a rise out of the 'freedom' and 'purity' from the nudity, not much different than the people who are offended by it-2 sides of the same coin.

Where is nudity?
