On Quick Review: PhotoKeeper article (101 comments in total)
In reply to:

morepix: What we don't like:
Covering this kind of item on DPReview.

And as for the "simplistic" interface under the likes list -- the word means oversimplified. :-)

You guys can't read. See "What we don't like" on p. 3 of the review. It's the DPR way of saying things. Cheez ...

Denis of Whidbey Island: Saw the video on this a few days ago; nice bag but not cheap! I'll stick with my old Temba Messenger.

Me too.

On Vintage Fountain Pen in the Macro - A Fresh Look at Ordinary Objects challenge (1 comment in total)

Striking photo. Unfortunately, the tip of the pen nib gets lost. I think it could be recovered with a little pushing and pulling.

On DSCF7156 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (2 comments in total)

Is this the X-S1? It was released in 2011. As for a plain ol' S1, I don't see any such thing in the Cameras listing.

On Readers' Showcase: Sheila Murphy article (60 comments in total)
In reply to:

morepix: This site is regrettably becoming deluged with infomercials, of which this certainly looks like one. Arhmatic's question is a good one, but I'd really rather do without Readers' Showcases entirely and stick to news.

Sheila Murphy's photos are OK, even more than OK for the minimalist ones. But there are so many OK photos in the air these days that a respite would be most welcome.

Yes, I probably got carried away with a half-baked idea. Apologies.

In reply to:

SmilerGrogan: If Sony make the bulk of sensors, why does DP Review bother testing so many different cameras.

When the same Sony sensor is used in Camera A, B, and C, wouldn't it be more efficient to just test Camera A and extrapolate to the others?

Plus that would free up staff time to review the more interesting and off-beat cameras out there (branch out into medium format cameras or finally review the many Pentaxes that are gathering dust in the equipment closet).

1. Differences in JPG quality depending on different processing engines.
2. Differences in both JPG and raw, depending on lenses and in-camera lens corrections.

AFAIK, autoexposure now works by modulating light acceptance to the brightness of average gray. Could that algorithm, in a future sensor design, be modified to implement ETTR?

As a happy user of the double glass Lensbaby, I was expecting something really good for $500. However, I don't see it here.

I'm glad to find out this was just a joke. I was afraid someone might think it was intended seriously. Whew!

In reply to:

samfan: 600mm is certainly very practical without a built-in EVF.

But you know what bugs me most about these supposedly high-end compact cameras? An on/off BUTTON. Press, hold = delay.

I don't know why they don't use instantaneous mechanical on/off switches like on DSLRs and (these days, fortunately) MILCs. Anything that makes you wait in a camera is imperfect design, not to mention access in gloves etc. Besides everyone is going crazy with mechanical elements anyway.

Rushed photo = poor photo, unless you happen to be a reincarnation of Henri Cartier-Bresson.
