On article D500 owner formally accuses Nikon of false advertising (473 comments in total)
In reply to:

spencerda: certainly reasonable to expect a new model to have the same functions or better than previous models.
If it's advertised as Wi-Fi capable one would expect it to be similar to previous models.

The logical thing to do for nikon, would be to develope one system of wifi transfer for all cameras. Instead they are wasting money on appcreation and development of several different hardwares.

On article Waterfails: We test Pentax K-1's Pixel Shift (225 comments in total)

Why dont you make a "this works great with PS and this does not" article. Instead of baching it saying its useless (or that is what everyone will think because 10% acutally read the text and the rest looks at the picutres).

In reply to:

RubberDials: I think the review should be drawing a negative conclusion about Nikon's failure to implement any kind of IBIS.

The technology is mature and has been present in DSLRs from other manufacturers in some cases for some more than ten years. Nikon don't even have the excuse that that they're using a FF sensor and the body is very large.

Norseman, i change camera while my lenses stays forever. And the investment in lenses far exceeds camera investments, and the need to change lenses to get the newest os would cost a small fortune.

Pentax have had ibis sence 2007 i think, in all dslr released, and in their full frame dslr.

LWW: What a load of rubbish about lack of lenses, if you would all get off your sorry rear ends and create some 'image impact' and distract with that lofty ideal, you'll do just fine with what is already available.

Lense tests higher on a fullframe than a aps-c body at dxomark. Pentax have not had a ff camera to test their lenses. Therefore pentax lenses seems to be worse than canikosony lenses.

Busted lens aside (as confirmed by DPR staff below in this thread) Noise looks realy promising compared to D810
The K-1 has the same amount of Chroma noise at 100k as the D810 at 50 k.
Retention of details is hard to compare at the moment

Mark van Dam: Thanks for posting, the Pentax K1 images are much softer than Nikon D810 in most parts of the image in raw, I would have expected this in jpeg, but not in raw, especially considering that the K3II is delivering super sharp output by comparison. I wonder if it's the lens, where the Pentax has focused, or maybe AA filter was engaged, or maybe this is the best the Pentax can do.

I have the K-1 and it output realy sharp results if a good lens is used. Somehing is wrong

In reply to:

Mister Joseph: What's the lens used on the K-1? Outside of the image center seems to be out of focus or just soft?

Ye Someone need to go out and buy a new lens for pentax

Lea5: Thank you. Camera does fine. I hope the "can't use this camera at base ISO" crowd shut up now.

At the same time as the ones shouting. "noone buys this camera to shoot at base ISO" shuts up...

On article Nikon D5 real-world low light, high ISO samples (281 comments in total)
In reply to:

ManuelVilardeMacedo: People still look at these results like young boys going 'wow! An F1 car reaches 340 km/h', as if everything came down to top speed (or high ISO for all that matters).
Besides, I see no reason to use 1/1000 at a concert. 1/125 would be enough to freeze any motion with the camera handheld, especially if the photographer insists in using a wide-angle lens (in which case he could even safely use 1/60). That would make the noise much less intrusive. As it is, this is a mere exercise in the camera's capabilities. Which is great, of course, but in the real world, with the camera in the hands of a professional, things would be quite different.
Feel free to be impressed with these high noise images anyway.

You very very seldom want freeze everything at a concert. If you have a headbaning deathmetal group you want to capture the motion, not freeze it completly. I have been photographing a lot of concerts in murky conditions and i dont think i ever go above 1/250 or 1/320. Sure its always easier if you know the music or what type if music they are playing. Its realy easy to capture good photos if you love the music then you can predict when something big is comming. But for a nikon d5 i guess its for those gigant stageshows with U2 or the like where you have 5 minutes to get a good image. Then its more spray and pray

High iso but far from low light.
1/1000 f4.0 at iso 32000 would be 1/250 f2.0 at iso 2000. A much more reasonable work setting for these kind of band. And for a singer songwriter gig like the girl 1/125 f2.0 iso 1000 should work.
Its just lazy to crank up the iso and shoot at high shutterspeeds. ;)
