fdfgdfgdgf: "DSLRs can capture the moment better than mirrorless, because you're viewing directly, not through an LCD"
That was a good one
I don't know if you were being sarcastic, but all EVFs on the market have a lag that I can't tolerate when shooting. I totally agree with this statement.
I'm no economist, but based on what I've read and personal experience, my guess to why this is happening are:
Firstly, the increased quality and adoption rate of mobile phone cameras have eaten away at certain digital camera market segments, mostly point-and-shoots, but also the dSLR market.
Secondly, due to an increase in product quality and increase in competition (leading to market saturation), the market has already hit its peak (as all markets do) and is seeing an inevitable decline. Speaking from my own experience, I invested years ago in Canon L lenses, covering all the focal lengths I've needed for the kind of shooting that I do. I haven't had a need or desire to buy a new lens since then. Same with the camera body. I haven't had a need or desire to replace the body because it still works like the day I bought it (4 years ago) and has enough megapixels for me.
Thirdly, decrease in consumer spending due to declining economies in previously high-sales regions.
Tamrac spelled backward is "Car mat"?
knize10: Its a teaser page now but it will end up in the landfill in 5 years.
waste, waste and more waste.
I think you're on the wrong site. Did you mean to navigate to stopwaste.org?
Jim Evidon: Too little and too late. I bought a Korean knockoff of the RRS grip for a lot less money. I would have bought the new Fuji grip even at the higher price because it looks right with the XPro-1 but, as I said, too little and really very late. The grip together with the Thumbs-up really makes this camera very comfortable to use.
new boyz: It will be nice if they can fit in extra batteries there.
Unnecessary to who? Having two batteries would make it more usable for wedding photography, video production, time lapse, and other applications where extra power is crucial.
jwalker019: I think it's great they're finally releasing an upgraded grip, but why would they not just have designed the camera properly in the first place?
In response to Samuel - You do have a point there in regards to the camera body, but note that the first grip they released was not 'proper' design, meaning it actually blocks the battery compartment and that thing cost $100. Whether it was intentionally designed that way in anticipation of designing a 'new and improved' grip is another question.
Nathaniel George Weir: Why does everyone complain complain complain complain in the comments at DPreview? Seriously this is free information for all of us. If you don’t like how they present the article then just move on about your life. I honestly value the comments section in DPreview, but part of the reason I haven't been coming to DPreview is because I’ve become sick of all of the negative comments and feedback from people who have nothing else better to do or say. I understand that DPreview moderators listen to the people in the comments section. But please people:“If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all"
Maybe DPreview should do what YouTube does, allow users to vote down comments. Comments with several vote-downs are hidden.
Just played with the cat photo in Camera RAW. I am speechless at the IQ coming from a phablet. This beats images coming from my 5s, which I consider excellent coming from a phone camera.
Mike Minh: A bag review with this degree of detail, including photographic evidence? Is this for real? Can't wait for equally detailed reviews of photographer jeans (degree of abrasiveness on tripods, squeeze-factor of the seams influencing your steady hand during shots, measured colour reflection on subjects for macro shots), photographer socks (how fast do they dry when you have stepped in a puddle?) and inevitably coming, photographer underpants (I leave it to your imagination which details we urgently NEED to know on these).
I all seriousness, an overview article "15 practical bags" or "10 tips on what to look for in a good bag" is more than enough. I mean really, it's a bag, fgs.
This is a website about photography and photo equipment and accessories, and you're complaining about an in-depth review of something totally relevant?
I stopped using my Cokin kit after I realized it's a better process to take multiple exposures and layer in Photoshop or combine to create a HDR. You just get more creative control rather than putting a filter over an entire scene, or even a graduated one.
That said, there is still value in ND filters for example, when you want long exposures to show movement, shooting water, etc., without overexposing.
slncezgsi: What is actually the real point of this product? When I buy a lens I do not expect to spend time 'fine tuning AF' or some similar nonsense - the lens should work out of the box!
Says the casual photographer.
babalu: If technically possible, what I think will interest potential enthusiast clients wouldbe a feature whereby a macro shot with different sharpness levels canbe combined in-camera to produce one picture with greater DOF than whatcan be done today with affordable macro lenses .
I would buy that.
seanpon: Frankly, I prefer good photography to mediocre Photoshop work. I believe that this young photographer would be better served honing his photography skills. He probably has talent but his composite images are just cliches to me.
Stop being so dense.
Doing video/photo journalism requires a specialists skill set. I didn't hear anything about reporters getting paid more for taking on a whole lot of new job responsibilities. If the executives think this is okay, and reporters are afraid to speak up, then we have a serious a problem. Is there a union for journalists? Seems they need to be represented without fear of reprisal.
mischivo: No matter what anyone tells me, I'll never find a "modern" cushioned neoprene/nylon camera holster or bag to be properly stylish. Give me retro or contemporary, made from either leather or unique fabric, and with COLOUR! And maybe then, if well designed, it could be called stylish. This bag, like most other camera bags, is rubbish to look at.
Despite a few minor lingering design faults, Domke bags are my favorite. Stylish. Rugged. Protective.
madeinlisboa: Oh my god! Even Manfrotto is going lame!
Like any business, they're interested in the bottom line and the iphone accessories market is not something to ignore. $$$
Awesome shot. Not sure how I got 2nd place over this one. The lighting on the rock is a great touch. Would have a been a flatter, less dynamic shot without it.
Really sad to hear this, but I believe in the coming years people will experience digital photography overload and there will a collective nostalgia for the simplicity and experience of making film photos, which will reinvigorate Kodak.
Ithackermike: Hopefully this will be the beginning of the end to overbaked HDR.
I doubt that dude.
