On A second glance: two takes on the Leica X article (378 comments in total)

I think it so a good camera, and will last for many years, but as an amateur I can't afford $ 2300 for a APS C camera. I'll use that money to buy a decent FF camera, on wich I can use my lenses. I can't make better pictures with another camera, but I think in detail my pictures will win from this camera.

On Nikon D750 First-impressions review preview (1322 comments in total)

@HowaboutRAW.
Thanks, you are right. I wanted to include the D4s, but English is not my first language and with "since" I excluded it.
I'm saving up for a FF Nikon, but I do want to see if the 750 comes close to the 810. Not for detail, but for AF speed an accuracy, I don't think I need 36 mega pixel, but I hope the "newer" or perhaps "improved" or even the "downgraded?" autofocus system Multi-CAM 3500 II is as fast and accurate as in the D810. And works at least as good in lesser light conditions. If so, I could upgrade sooner to FF because the camera is less expensive.

Is there a chance, DPreview will review and publish more about this camera? Or even any Nikon? I haven't seen any complete review from a Nikon, since the D4s.

RolliPoli: I don't think these should be called "film scanners". They are flat bed scanners on which film can be scanned. Especially from a miniature format like 35mm, sharp, high quality results are best made with a dedicated film scanner. Unfortunately, there aren't many left on the market.

You are right. On my V700 I cant see the difference between scans from the films when I use 2400 dpi or I use more. 3200 dpi will give bigger files, but no extra detail in the result.
For my 6 by 6 negatieve the 2400 dpi is more than enoug, and the results are brilliant.
I have looked for real film scanners, but if you see one, second hand, they ask twice the price they costed new. For an amateur like me these prices are too high.

This is a nice interview, only giving us things already known.
No firm can afford to tell in advance, what the next new and news breaking product will be. An innovation, in the electronic world is easy copied by other firms. Those firms then can bring a cheaper version, because they did not need to do the research.
And every time, Nikon brings an "innovation" on the camera or lens market, only sales decide if it was good or bad. That is also the drive for more or less development to the way they go.
Listening to customers is nothing more then looking what sells the best. Not reading this forum. This forum, only can hint the development devision in a direction. But the decisions for what path to go, are made on the top, and they do look more to sales figures and look if it fits in the strategical path they are going. Not more no less.

On Hasselblad unveils pixel-shifting 200MP H5D-200c MS article (248 comments in total)

Although I never could afford a new Hasselblad, I love reading about their equipment. It was a professional photographer, who owned several hassies in the sixties and seventies of the last century, who drove me into this hobby, by showing me what his cameras could do. He supported me with his knowledge and sometimes allowed me to use his delicate equipment. It learned me, you need more then just an expensive camera and an expensive lens, to make a good picture. Just a few years later I lost my friend. He was a great photographer, but a very unlucky car driver. A simple car accident took his life. But my love for the photography is greater than ever, after all these years. My fascination for Hasselblad is still great. The negative posts, here can't change that.

And I'm convinced that is the reason why the D610 only has 39 points, more to the centre of the frame. I don't need 36 megapixel but for all the other possibilities I want to have on my new camera, I must buy the D800 or now the D810.

HarrieD7000: Great, as an amateur photographer I was thinking to step up to FF. I was putting mony aside to do so, and hoping Nikon would bring an upgrade for the D800's. The upgrade is here. My money not. But at the time I have the money for a new camera, this will be tested, and on the market for a few months. If nothing negative is heard of this camera by then, I buy this one.
From what I saw today it must be a beast of a camera for an amateur like me.

Joe, you are right. I'm looking for a FF, because I love to shoot portraits. I don't think I need 36 Mp, but I think the Nikon 810 is technical the best to buy now. I already have 7 or 8 lenses, of wich 5 FF. Everyone is very happy with the pictures I shoot with my DX but I think I can play a bit more with the DOF, when using a FF.
In the back of my mind is still the Nikon DF, but the lack of a second memory card and no battery grip I really would miss.

On Nikon announces full-frame D810 with no OLPF article (98 comments in total)

Why placing one liners if you don't want to buy this camera?
Even my old D7000 can shoot with the SB900 and SB600 speed lights, up to 1/8000 of a second. The D7000 goes down to 100 ISO, so I could reach the same effect? And yes the X sync for external speed lights only can be done with shutters in the lens, like the phase one and Hasselblad. And even if I have to save an extra year to get this camera, for me (an amateur photographer) it is worth it's money.

Great pictures!!! Made with a thing that was not made to make photographs in the first place.

Direct link | Posted on Jun 16, 2014 at 04:47 UTC as 13th comment

Perhaps the even put it behind glass, so everyone visiting can see the camera. I would not swap this box for my 3 year old camera gear. It has nothing to do with the brand, because I love the M3, but this is not bringing anything to make better pictures.

Direct link | Posted on Jun 14, 2014 at 11:53 UTC as 65th comment

I thought this was a camera, but now it seems just a gadget.
And although my saying is, there is no bad picture, only a missed chance to make one (did not invent that myself) it will take much more before I replace my cameras for a thing like this.

On Samsung NX30 Review preview (418 comments in total)
In reply to:

jango: samsung nx30 or sony a6000 or olympus e-m10
which one would you buy?
in my country the prices of the three cameras are almost the same
even the lanses price are cheeper for the samsung and most exepensive for the sony

I'm convinced, if you start with a Nikon or Canon DSLR, for the same price, you have a better camera and more possibilities in the future. The quality of the pictures will be better too.

As soon as I need pictures the size of my house, I'll consider to buy this camera. Till that time comes I will stay with a normal DSLR.
I do think this is a great camera for a good price.

My Transcend card is doing the same for less money. I even use a 16 GB card I bought for 40 dollar one year ago. It to is class 10 and does RAW. The apps on phonE and tablet are free and very easy to use.
