walkaround: Excluding people based on their camera brand? And I thought challenges requiring borders were bad...

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

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.

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 (838 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.

On High-end pocketable compacts roundup (2014) article (43 comments in total)

I did a lot of comparison and research before buying, the RX100M3 completely outclasses all of these cameras, including the G7X. Holding them side by side and operating them in the store, no contest. Even the popup EVF is useful and well implemented, I thought I would hate it.

The S-series are good cameras also, in decent light. I’ve had the S110 for over a year now, and I love it.

Did they fix the glacial AF of the 7700?

Direct link | Posted on Sep 5, 2013 at 11:37 UTC as 59th comment

What an ugly awful "update". My G15 is actually a decent camera at ISO 80, and has great ergonomics, but they could have made the finder 100%, added a tiltable LCD, and added a working assignable control ring. That would have been a G16 worth getting.

Where are these photographers and newspapers while corporations and purchased politicians loot the public, and stage "terrorist" events to take our rights away? Nowhere. Do their jobs have any value? No.
