On article Nikon D4s First Impressions Review (1043 comments in total)

Contrary to 'many' people here that crave for super small and super light cameras, i've always have lust for this type of camera..
Yes i do like to bring smaller camera for simple photo on vacation, but for professional use of course this type of camera is a dream..
'Many' people say that small mirrorless camera are capable of results like big camera, i don't decline it, right now apsc sensor is already very good
But big body have their own advantage.. If it doesn't fit you, why bash it all around saying stupid things? Like good perfume come in small bottle haha..
Or every other people use ISO 100 only.. Then why dont you just use film and shoot ISO 100?
Even iphone shoots more than ISO 100..

(unknown member): This retro scheme is a real dead duck. Mostly an attempt to prise money from those with more of it than common sense. Nikon has missed a trick here. Olympus & Fuji manage it well: Their cameras are technically 'up to the minute' and very competitively priced so you get both style and performance. This Nikon is simply not a runner.
DSLR's as a species are becoming marginalised. The real development money is going into the smaller mirror less full frames and wireless phone hybrids and the quality of these is improving all the time. I'm looking forward to the next Fuji X 30Mps incarnation due in March 14 along with its spectacular low light capability.

How can E-M1 is competitively priced?
Call me old school, but i still prefer basic FF whether it is 6D, D600, D610 than 'technologically advanced' E-M1

(unknown member): Nice outer body containing basically yesterday's 16Mps electronics. Way overpriced, I wonder if they were talking to Leica on the pricing strategy?

@jaberwok :
I used to believe that fuji x can come close to FF, many web review stated that, but several months ago i got the chance to try XE1 for a week and my conclusion is : no, it's still not there, my D600 definitely produce better results at high ISO
I believe my own eye more than just any web reviews out there :)
I never try D4 sensor, so i can't comment about how much better it will be than my D600
But i have used D800 side by side ( my co-worker use it ) , and i conclude that D600 is better at high ISO than D800 even though DXO say otherwise..
But in low ISO, D800 is a different beast..

bakhtyar kurdi: No thanks Nikon for your DeaF camera (I believe they call it deaf because it has no microphone), I am buying Sony A7r instead.

What a newbie troll haha..
Don't you know that until 4 - 5 years ago, every camera has no microphone?
A7R has mic, but i'm sure the quality won't be good.. You need to buy another mic if you want to use ur cam to record audio properly
I am nikon user and i had interest A7R, but no need to bash around with something stupid statement like that..
I bet you just shoot test charts or take movie of ur cat haha

In reply to:

AlpCns2: Good to know that Nikon has apparently improved quality control on those shutter mechanisms, despite the fact that the entire D600 "issue" has been completely blown out of proportion. As has been proven by several renowned and respected professional photographers / camera reviewers - such as Thom Hogan.

Having said that, Nikon should have handled the relatively few people that had indeed genuine issues better and more professionally. This has dented their reputation and as a consequence, customer confidence.

Oh and BTW, I have two D600's - and never had any issues with them.

My d600 have past 15k shutter count and it doesn't have that problem.. Sure it has dust, but it's normal and i'm very happy with the result it can produced..

Suave: Hard to get excited about the Canon version when new 24-105L can be had for $640. Hopefully it makes more sense for other mounts, but, a Canon user, this is not the lens I was waiting for.

How If it is better than 24-105L?
However 24-105L is an old lens
You can't compare it with 2013 lens

i think they who bash this lens actually don't know what is Noct - Nikkor.. i know it's not exactly the same as the legendary Noct, but i think that it will produce awesome result straight from f 1.4
i want it, but i admit that maybe i won't buy it because it's expensive, but i don't bash it
why bash it? if you can buy, buy it, if u can't buy, then just drool over it, no need to bash it.. don't be jealous :D
i believe that price does matter, it will produce good result..
is it 4 times better than AF-S 50 1.4 G or 9 times better than AF-S 50 1.8 G? of course not, but i'm sure it will be a special lens.. and for some people, even it's just a tad better, as long as it serves their purpose and they have the money, they will buy it..
if everyone just think for value for money products, there won't be luxury brand right now, there won't be Hermes, LV, Leica, Loubotin, etc..

i also have NEX F3, but ergonomically Q wins over it.. Q is faster to use, more direct control and the new firmware really speed up the AF capability...

On article Just Posted: Pentax Q7 Real-world Samples Gallery (136 comments in total)

the first time i saw the Q specs, i also got 'meh', small sensor, no bokeh, bad high ISO... but i finally gave it a chance...
and i change my mind after I use it..
Yes it doesn't have ultra high ISO, it can't blur the background, but it is fun and produce good results especially the 01 prime.. i don't really like the 02 zoom.. too slow for me, 90% of the time I just use 01 prime.. it's not bokeh machine, but it produce good results, i love the rendering of the lens... unbelieveable for a lens that small & light...
i have just sold it, because these days i'm quite busy and doesn't have the chance to play with it.. but surely i will miss it, and maybe i'll buy the Q7 if they package it with 01 and tele zoom.. or maybe bought it again in the future, but just with the 01 kit lens..

SylvainBdg: hum..85%...Nikon and its delicious GREEN skin tones...I am wondering what % is allocated for colour reproduction...my wedding was shot 3 weeks by 4 photographer using 4 different gears..Canon 7d, Nikon D7100 and D700 and Sony A77..guess which camera produced the most natural pics? (apart from the noise pb)..well it was the Sony..I am always surprised to see how much Nikon cameras score...Nowadays people just seem to care about pixels and sharpness..what a pity!!!

I'm a wedding photographer and I use Nikon..
And i never got complain about green skintone..
So there are 2 possibilities, first one is the photographer doesn't know how to use it, second one is that u are a fanboy troll..

David Naylor: Can't believe that Canon are pulling this on us. This is the 7th camera using the same old 18 MP sensor first seen in the 550D & 7D. That's like 4 years ago.

Yup.. Same old sensor and very minor improvement..

Although I'm a Nikon DSLR user, this camera really doesn't appeal me..
And really the price is too expensive IMO

In reply to:

KGP: You people maybe should start act like humans & photographers and not as Gadgetalibanious Fanboys. What if X-E1 get a Gold Award and your camera doesn't, even if you think that totally deserve it? Why do you care so much? It's juts an opinion. You should be very happy with your personal Gold Awarded camera instead of whining in dp forums. You should be out taking photos isntead of trying to convince others about your "Gold Award" choice. I have a Sigma DP1. Ιn objective terms its a useless monolithic brick, certainly far from Gold or even Bronze Award. I dont f*cking care, its my personal Gold Awarded camera and the one that has given me the most beautiful & enjoyable photographic moments, because less is more philosophy suit my needs.
Tests, graphs, samples, specs, numbers, are all there, not only in dpreview's site, compare, analyze and make your decision, as long as you believe that the only way to evaluate a camera is stuff like that. I choose washing machines that way.

Agree with you..

I wish the price could go down a little :)
Or maybe a little cheaper lens with smaller aperture should be allright..
Like maybe 50 f1.8 or 35 f2 or pancake 16 2.8 maybe?
Nice little camera..

In reply to:

wildkat2: If Pentax had priced this correctly out the door it would have sold better. THe K-01 is an excellent camera and when paired with a small prime "plays smaller than it is" to borrow from sports. It is a perfect size for parties or other times when you dont want to intimidate people.

I hope Pentax makes a K-02 that corrects some of the issues of the K-01.

It's not like a plastic toy, it is solidly built, but i don't like the handling, it's like holding a brick, all square..
