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?!
@AFishEyeQR~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...
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.
@Joggerthey are cheaper on eBay...
Fraction of prices... Well, waiting for the beekeepers explaining how Alien Zeus himself was fed with...
@AFishEyeI 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.
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.
make it bigger and put it in an electric automobile
are these "post wedding photography" samples?
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.
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.
(unknown member): Every time I hear the word Adobe I get this taste in my mouth like someone poured in a bag of dirty pennies.
you're lucky, HowaboutRAW (DPR didn't invent a "don't like" button).over 4k comments and only 11 likes?!waiting for a well written review (of some software, maybe?)
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.
This is the first time an ACR update has caused an troubles at all....!
Try 8.1 Pro;))
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.
DPR, which camera had ~40% clicks before Sony A7? Just curious.
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. "
