On Nikon D750 flare investigated: Why we're not worried article (372 comments in total)

UnitedNations: I think people have to understand that 'Japanese quality' is no longer the same today.

Rishi should know that Japanese companies have been faced with more challenges in recent years than it did before, & have had to make more cost cutting moves than in the past. The amount of absolute quality was not easily shared & accessible back in the days because there was comparatively less competition for the Japanese companies than now. Now it is different. "Absolute quality" in the Industrial Design Industry have overall risen due to more competition & development in technologies, but 'Japanese quality' has gradually shown decline due to fierce competition, changes in market strategy, & cost cutting.
In the old days people expected high quality from the Japanese companies & got it. Today people still expect high quality from the Japanese companies as before, but realise they are not really getting high quality as before..

Maybe Japanese quality WAS generally the best some years ago, but not now. I see the quality of their products gradually deteriorating because of cost saving moves. 'Japanese quality' is not the same as what it used to be many years ago. fanboys may have a hard time admitting this. Even the Sony had a light leak problem recently...

Zdman: So how does one give Samsung feedback. I've tried for years. They've had issues with lens profiles, weird colour casts when using manual lenses (there is a trick for the NX30 now). They make the electronic first curtain on their lenses only. Took forever to add focus peaking and then made it so you had to constantly turn in on. You couldn't move the focus magnifier unless you were using native lenses and this list goes on. So where do I go to give this feedback?

Zdman claims he is a VICTIM. Too bad he can't provide any proof of his claims. Yet he expects everyone to believe what he says. Amusing. So many haters these days....

Samsung shaking up the establishment... and some people here are obviously not happy about it.
Pretty much all of you are now using cameras that are way better in performance than what Henri Cartier-Bresson used to use in his days.
But, look at you guys now... fighting over what camera brand is better & what lens brand is better, etc. ...and some even showing unnecessary hatred toward Samsung for no good reason.

On Fujifilm X100T Overview preview (645 comments in total)

Too bad Fuji messed up their JPEG engine after the 1st generation X cameras(x100, x-e1, x-pro1). The rendering aesthetic, colour, & dynamic range of the newer 2nd & 3rd generation Fuji Cameras are all inferior now, & until Fuji fixes this I will not be buying another Fuji Camera. Just waiting to see what they do with the X-pro-2 now... Please bring back the OLD 1st generation JPEG engine & rendering aesthetics. Despite all these new performance related functions added to the x100t it will still never match the awe inspiring & mature rendering characteristics of the first generation x100. Ultimately image is what matters.

dark goob: I love how they never mentioned battery life, once, in this video.

Must be better than my Sony A7S .....because they don't complain about it.

Paul Liukas: Great camera, great specifications, but lack of emotions like XT1. Camera like a brick too modern and too cold for me. If you are tired of pixel peeping like me and want to get a joy from photography, camera should be with soul :) Fuji will spoil many of us with soul and light lenses. I don't want to use D810 anymore, except for product photos (need)..

Anyway great job Sony!

...that was until Fuji started messing up their unbelieveable JPEG engine from their 2nd generation models(X100s, x-e2, X-t1, etc...) & became pretty much RAW only cameras.. I would not touch another Fuji until they fix that.

UnitedNations: I was going to buy the A7s next weekend for strictly night street photography.
After seeing this news, I ask:
What is the point of getting the A7s now if the low light shooting ability in the A7II is improved 4.5 stops due to the IBIS?
I am a little confused about Sony's marketing intentions. What camera shoudl I buy?
Can someone more knowledgeable than me please explain? thanks...

When will the A7SII come out?
If it's late 2015, I will wait.
Thank you everyone!

These are not supposed to be those superficially amazing but completely boring & shallow photos you see everyday on Flickr with thousands of up votes.
These photos show the generally high level of Photographic art which seems to be the norm in U.K.

Shameless uneducated boy.

Clearly Wye Photography is still confused about what 'Art' is.

Amusing ignorance & arrogance.

@BadScience

Wye Photography is having a hard time understanding what 'Art' is. Don't mind his ignorant & nonsensical rambling too much. ^^

@ Wye Photography
Thank you for your hate filled rude comment.
Your comment shows that you have never really learned to look in the mirror due to your arrogance.

In the above, I already told you where you went all wrong. LOL

Considering that anyone can produce 'Art', it seems 'Wye Photography' is a bit confused about what 'Art' is & what 'Art' I am talking about, ...& from what premise I am speaking from.

Thus, I don't recall ever being "pretentious" or "pseudo intellectual" in the above. You are wrong, Wye Photography.

You said: "Art/Photography is communication FROM the artist/photographer TO the viewer."

Dear Wye. I found your irrelevant & limited knowledge of what 'Art' is very amusing to read. Good luck with your studies in Art. LOL.
