luigibozi: I would like DPR to test and have it in the specs (for all cameras):
if using a quick release plate for a tripod allows the screen to freely tilt. I had a Sony RX100 (very good camera!) and when I visited a Sony store here in Toronto and looked at a Sony RX10 (that looks better in hand than in the images) I was surprised to see that when I attached a quick release plate (a small Gitzo) the tilting screen was obstructed. I wonder if this (I would like to keep my quick release plate on the bottom of my camera) is a designed "feature" that has some reason behind?!

@AFishEye
QR~quick release. My tripod is Gitzo.
Good design in this particular case would be to test, with the camera standing on a table, if the screen opens and closes freely, which is not exactly rocket science, if you understand correctly. I have a solution to this equation too: camera manufacturers could design the position of the screen 2-3mm up, and every plate (including a table or my Gitzo QR plate) would fit under without problems. And DPR would have to check this again and tell us, eh?
What a wonderful world...

In reply to:

Jim Salvas: There are a couple of important things missing from this review.

For instance, a 75W modeling lamp sounds useless for portrait work. Was it?

How do you -- or can you -- attach a softbox or any light modifier other than the umbrella?

They look like designed for Profoto modifiers...

Jogger: Interesting that DPR/Amazon is reviewing a competitor's product.

@Jogger

@AFishEye
I was talking about cameras, not plates.
In my opinion a good design should not make me waste my time+money. By the way, I checked RRS site for Sony RX and they do not have a QR plate for RX10, and those for RX100 and RX1 seemed to me ridiculously small, and respectively huge.

Awesome extraordinary thing: Graduated and Radial Filter masks modifiable with brush. Plus my Intuos5 too. Just amazing.

anyway, he missed the "custom backdrops". ugly kitsch. well, only IMHO :))

the backdrop bear is decisive. I think DPR should investigate about the source of that backdrop. I would buy one. Who knows? maybe I will become a professional photographer having this backdrop in my toolbox.

On Leica T (Typ 701) gains updated firmware version 1.1 article (57 comments in total)
In reply to:

Rooru S: "you will get the complete scope of functions and performance as described in the manual of your camera".

So version 1.0 didn't had all the functions stated on the printed manual? Interesting...first the claim that their lenses didn't need optical corrections (when they were Software corrected) and now unfinished in-camera firmware?

"very good lenses" do not need this amount of software correction

CopCarSS: "...high-quality selfies."

There's an oxymoronic phrase on par with "Microsoft Works."

I think the "selfies" are the images.

On Red Giant offers subscription to video editing tools article (26 comments in total)

Suppose from April 1st iOS, Windows and MacOS go subscription, and only those with subscription can connect to web, let's say.
I doubt from April 2nd any dpreview surfer will operate as a root on their machine running Linux.

On Nikon launches new series of instructional videos article (33 comments in total)

Good if a warehouse "has charisma and patina".
Hi-hi-hi. I hope the guy from the video doesn't utter his images the same way...
When he said that the model is "charismatic" and I didn't hear patinatic or something like that I began to comment...
Yeah, I have a Nikon.

hjs_koeln: Allright, just installed ACR 8.4 on my 2010 iMac (Photoshop CS6), and all of a sudden Photoshop no longer can find Adobe Camera Raw... In other words: It won´t open any RAW file at all. Started time machine, replaced Photoshop folders with those stored a few days ago, and tried again: Same result, Photoshop no longer finds Camera Raw.

What now....?!

This is the first time an ACR update has caused an troubles at all....!

Try 8.1 Pro
;))

On Sony Alpha 7R Review preview (795 comments in total)

As nobody says Nikon D600/D800, I am finally happy that I can read two reviews for two different cameras: Sony A7 and Sony A7R. DPR finally accepted the real facts.

In reply to:

plasnu: A professional and unbiased review. I'm sick of Steve H or someone's unprofessional impressions on their commercial BLOG.

the nikon d600/610 and d800 are reviewed together? doesn't seem so unbiased to me...
what is the percent in "Cameras receiving the most clicks in reviews and specs in the last five days." Dpreview could say "Cameras (EXCEPT THE NEW REVOLUTIONARY SONY A7 AND A7R) receiving the most clicks in reviews and specs in the last five days. "
