  • Perhaps De Blasio will learn a lesson from this. The fool used inflammatory rhetoric to fan the fires and encourage violence against the police. And the police aren't too pleased about it. They ...
  • Like.... France, and England. And other places where they welcome radical Imams.
  • This is a pretty special lens, and priced very reasonably. It is available in both Sony E and M4/3 mounts. On Sony E, it is equivalent to a 90mm lens on FF, which is a very popular portrait focal ...
  • Nikon 1 is actually a pretty good system. But it's priced way too high. The system delivers extremely poor value unless you can find it on final clearance sales. Why would anyone buy a Nikon 1 V3 ...
  • There are plenty of P&S cameras that can rival, and sometimes exceed the quality of many DSLRs. In order to do this, you need a P&S camera with a large sensor. The problem is, you will have a hard ...
  • This beautiful leather wrist strap is for a Nikon 1 camera. I found it in a Goodwill Thrift shop selling for $1. It was brand new, and in a box. I would have preferred a black one, but all they had ...
  • Replied in Canon EOS M
    Dirt cheap, and does everything you want done. Small, light, ideal for hiking. Plus is a fairly modern design with many of the newest features. Image quality is really very good, for Canon's weak ...
  • A professional photographer can take photos with the simplest and cheapest cameras, and sell them. He is a professional no matter what camera he uses. His status is derived from his or her skill, ...
  • Ben, absolutely no doubt about that. However, between the two of us, only one is a good photographer. And that would be YOU. :-)
  • I've always liked using two cameras, a larger one and a smaller one. And while I love having an OVF or an EVF, I don't find it necessary that both cameras have them. When I had an Olympus E510, my ...
  • Most people prefer to meet in public places, in broad daylight. You see, the risk goes both ways. The buyer is worried since he is carrying a large amount of cash, and could be walking into an ...
  • Replied in Are you sure?
    I've heard that expression for most of my life, and I think you have it wrong. What you described isn't "sandbagging" it's "cheating." What you described might be called "stuffing the ballot box." ...
  • I might be wrong, but I thought the EM1 sensor, the one that has on chip PDAF, was made by Panasonic, and not by Sony. So Panasonic already has a sensor that can do that. If I am wrong about this, ...
  • I think you are absolutely right about that. For the people who own HG and SHG 4/3 lenses, PDAF is an extremely nice feature. But... how many M4/3 users fall into that category? If you read this ...
  • Replied in Tom...
    If you really found the EM5 to feel "lightweight," and I am sure you did, then you should try picking up and waving around an EM10! No doubt the EM10 is a wonderful camera, but compared to the EM5, ...
  • I doubt there are very many EM5 users who will upgrade to the EM5 II. But this camera wasn't designed as an upgrade for EM5 users. If EM5 users want an upgrade, then a much better choice would be ...
  • I am a firm believer that there is no camera system that is perfect for everyone. If the Sony Alpha system appeals to you, then you should try it and decide for yourself before switching systems. ...
  • And.... there are other reasons. But if you want a really small ILC, then M4/3 can be the obvious choice.
  • Commented on Nikon D750 Review preview

    Since Amazon sells every brand and model made, and makes a profit by selling any of them, it doesn't make logical sense for them to "push" any particular brand or model.

    Since Dpreview needs to...
