Smitty1: From reading many of the comments about these photos, most of which are not about these photos, I'd say most of you will be getting Mr. Cheney coal for Christmas.

And it seems the quickest way to see which political side on which the viewership is leaning is simply to post a few photos of Dick Cheney and let the comments fly! We seem to be leaning hard left at the moment.. didn't take long to meet Godwin's Law.

Godwin's Law is referring to ridiculous online behavior. In the real world, Grandpa Bush really was a Nazi.

Ignoring a user doesn't extend to the comments section, moron. And if you reply to every post or comment I make, I guess that means you have just as little to do as I do? Wedding biz not going so well Davey? Maybe potential clients are seeing your online behavior, and thinking twice.

"Hundreds"? LOL, they shut down photographer access way before that. Nice try, but no you haven't. I don't know what photos you think you saw, or what you were told, but the people who were on the scene all say the same thing, there was a hole about 10ft wide, and nothing else. Oh yeah, and that flight number wasn't even on the FAA list of flights for that day.

I'm really not interested in your Stockholm Syndrome blabbering.

The only 3 skyscrapers in history to "collapse" from "fire": the three WTC buildings on 9/11.
Strange "renovations" carried out in both towers in the weeks before 9/11.
All three buildings fell at free fall speed, a physical impossibility for a "pancaking" structure. Witnesses all reported hearing and seeing explosions like a demolition.
The U.S. military was conducting a live drill on the morning of 9/11 which simulated... wait for it... wait for it... terrorists highjacking airliners in order to fly them into buildings. Conveniently the drill placed the pursuit aircraft too far off the coast to be able to respond to the real thing. The drill also placed fake blips on FAA radar screens, air traffic controllers are heard on the 9/11 tapes urgently asking, "Is this real or drill?!" when told about the alleged highjackings.
The field in Pennsylvania, supposedly a crash site, contained no wreckage whatsoever. A jumbo jet, we are told, "vaporized", a physical impossibility.

Wake up.

Yes, I did notice them. They're also wrong. Why not raise the point with the hosts, or with dpr?

In reply to:

marike6: The D7200 has class leading IQ, (20 points higher sensor quality score the Canon 70D on one of DPR's partners, DxOMark), improved the buffer size, improved AF down to -3EV, WIFI and gets a WORSE review and award than the Canon 70D and Nikon D7100? Lol.

And please cut the "bulky" silliness as a Con. It's a prosumer DSLR appropriately sized to handle well in the field with fast glass and zooms. Sigh.

Lastly, DPR had no right to delete my previous post, this is a free country and I'm giving my opinion which is echoed throughout this page.

I don't think you understand how back-button focusing works, or why half-press exposure lock is a non-starter in action shooting. Watch some youtube videos about it.

Yes you're right, the D200, D300, D300S, D700, D800, D810 are all just niche cameras, and anyone who wants the same button configuration as those is a fanboy...

It's not a theory, there is no AF-ON button. So if you assign focus to AE-L, you lose exposure lock in an ergonomic place.

At least the 70D has an AF-ON button for back-button focusing, which the D7200 does not. That pretty much rules it out for most sports and wildlife shooters, or really anyone that goes beyond the basics. Dxo scores don't get you birds in flight.

Thank you for finally mentioning D7100 noise and banding, two years later... but better late than never.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 Review preview (361 comments in total)
In reply to:

compay: in my opinion, this is the way a micro 4/3/aps camera's should look like, Small, silent, capable, light.

I have seen too many quite big micro 4/3 camera's with very loud shutters. People who own these camera's laugh at big full frame dslr's and instead they buy a less capable but still quite big micro 4/3 camera with those long ugly slow zoom lenses.

I have a canon 5d mark3 and with the 40 2.8 it's a great combo….i want a really small camera beside that…have the sony rx100 now…and quality is "great" and camera is small….but with the lens out it's still very visible….such a pity that there are no aps or 4/3 camera's with a fixed fast lens.

this panasonic gm-1 comes really close to what i want.

“...people in the street still reel back from it and scowl like it is going to steal their souls.”

LOL, hilarious, and true.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Review preview (839 comments in total)

This has got to be the most nitpicky review I’ve ever read on dpreview. And as usual the out of camera jpegs are far better looking than the dpreview raw conversions, which always look noisy, anemic, and hdr-ish.
