On Big Zoom: Nikon Coolpix P900 real-world samples article (115 comments in total)
In reply to:

forpetessake: When will DPR stop publishing misleading numbers? It's NOT "a mind-blowing F2.8-6.5 24-2000mm equivalent zoom".

You either provide conversion for both f-stop and focal length, which are mind-blowing F14.6-33.8 24-2000mm FF equivalent. Or provide the physical parameters, which are F2.8-6.5 4.6-385mm.

It's hard to believe DPR continues making honest mistakes -- writing a F14.6-33.8 4.6-385mm would have been an honest mistake, and I've never seen that.

I swear some people live for comment section equivalency debates. Give it a rest already.

#8 is particularly beautiful.

rallyfan: Why harass the three elderly women in Spain?

Is it the end of the world that a photographer took a picture of three old women who obviously didn't want to be photographed? Certainly not, but that doesn't change the fact that a considerate person would have lowered his camera instead of pressing the shutter button.

No bracketing option at all? Seriously?

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview (767 comments in total)

Why isn't there a performance page in this review? I'm having trouble finding info on buffer depth, specifically.

In reply to:

Kurt_K: I see that the regular studio comparison was done with the Oly 45mm and that the high-res comparison was with the Panny 42.5mm. Are there any plans to use the latter lens for regular studio comparisons in the future?

Fair enough.

Quality looks very good to my eyes. There might be a few shots where the point of focus is slightly off where it should be, but if you look at the areas that *are* in focus, the detail is excellent.

Outstanding shots. Thank you for sharing.

Kurt_K: Interesting interview. I think I would seriously consider a Fuji if it wasn't for the X-trans sensor. I see people on here who say that the smudgy looking files are down to poor conversions through Lightroom but, honestly, the files I've seen from Capture One conversions don't look any better.

No, sorry, I have not seen samples done through Iridient.

Excellent pricing.

Definitely an improvement over the KS1, style-wise, although still not particularly attractive from the top view. Seems like a decent value.

So if Flickr is where all the phone-snappers hang out, where have the camera-using photographers migrated to? 500px?

On Quick Look: The art of the unforeground article (85 comments in total)
In reply to:

Vergilius: You know, after reading some of the sour comments on this thread, I'm glad that I'm an amateur with little technical knowledge. That way I'm able to just enjoy these photographs just because I think that they are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing!

Sour grapes = sour comments

In reply to:

luxor2: These photos might look better with the unforeground cropped away.

That second shot wouldn't be anywhere near as interesting as it is currently with the "unforeground" sand cropped out. I think both compositions are excellent as they are. Great work, Erez.

On Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path article (1456 comments in total)

I can already tell from the comments that a lot of people who read this didn't really understand what they were reading. It's a very sensible opinion piece, not an attack on everyone who chooses to shoot with a full-frame camera.

In reply to:

Kurt_K: Overpriced, I would say, given the lack of stabilization.

Yes, the Samsung 16-50 has IS. It's also faster on the short end at F/2.0.
