" While the potential medical applications of the patent are certainly very welcome, there is no doubt the ability to take pictures of an object or person simply by looking at them will raise privacy concerns if the concept ever turned into a consumer product.".........Such us Cyborg.......how sad

oselimg: A camera (K3) never revieved by Dpreview wins it. Isn't this a proof that people don't refer to this site when buying a camera or at least a DSLR? Can infantile trollheads and gearheads take some lessons from this phenomenon and finally grow up or is it a wishful thinking?

Finally give advice on DPReview in taking care always to provide full-text articles in the same way (which today are many and interesting) on each new camera in order to give more and more possible information to its users for help them in their search. This is just my humble opinion that can be shared or not.

I do not believe that there is a site that can be a point of reference for purchases but instead there are many sites ( DPReview is one of them) that can help in the search for characteristics of cameras more suited to our needs . Finally regarding the survey am convinced that the readers of DPReview (I'm one of them) have only voted their favorite product and that does not mean that they have or will buy the reflex that they have voted . I voted for Pentax K3 but I use Nikon . My vote is just a personal opinion based on many reviews I have read and express only my personal opinion on a camera that I really admire for its features. I am an admirer of Pentax camera because I know some friends who use Pentax and I got to try Pentax products . They are great machines .

I think this . I consider DPReview a great site about the world of photography ( definitely among the best ), but certainly not the only one where I read reviews on photography. I read many sites. Much reviews do see better and create a opinion certainly less biased. After this if I have to buy a camera , after reading the book reviews , I try to touch the camera in my hands and if possible do some testing . Only then I can make a final decision .

Same thing .... I think the D90 is the only camera that has never had updates (firmware) ... perfect from birth! ;-)

On Sigma issues advisory on lens compatibility with Nikon Df news story (67 comments in total)
In reply to:

MrSkelter: I am still surprised at this. Does Sigma not have an official license to Nikon's lens communication protocol? Even if not and it's reverse engineered why would the Df break compatibility?

What am I missing here...?

This news comes to me new. I use for my Nikon D90 lens Tamron 17-50/2.8 and 70-200/2.8 and I've never had any problems ......

On Canon announces EOS M2 in Japan news story (616 comments in total)
In reply to:

Donnie G: No surprises here. Canon is wisely selling the camera in Japan and Asia only, since those are the only places where mirrorless compact system cameras have had any kind of sales success. Unlike the competition, Canon doesn't have to throw money and resources away panning for gold in an unproven and unreliable revenue stream. If the EOS M cameras ever turn a significant profit for the company, then there will be incentive for major development of that system. Until then, it's just makes sense to stick with what works for the overwhelming majority of camera buyers on the planet, and that's DSLRs.

In fact, while the European market has lost about 41% of sales, the same market in Japan has increased by 6% with SLRs which grew by 37%, the compact system by 21% while those with fixed optics lose 23%. It should be noted that the percentage of CSC on reflex decreased to 37% compared to 40% last year. In Europe, however, the reflex lose 21%, but a more dangerous CSC fall 30%.

On Tamron to develop 150-600mm F5-6.3 ultra-telephoto zoom news story (193 comments in total)
In reply to:

LukeLT63: I do not understand why Tamron does not produce more new lens for Pentax. I wish I knew ....I'm sorry for my friends that use Pentax!

The first answer is correct (Look at the market share of pentax.). I've had confirmation from Pentax users who are informed at the same Tamron.

In reply to:

rockjano: Will it be better than the Sigma 150-500? (which is not bad for what it is and how much it cost) 500-600mm difference is not huge...

It depends on the camera body. Considering the factor of the APS-C the comparison becomes:
Sigma 150-500mm Full Frame = 150-500mm
Sigma 150-500mm APS-C = 225-750
Tamron 150-600mm Full Frame = 150-600mm
Tamron 150-600mm APS-C = 225-900
Difference: Sigma-Tamron Full Frame = 100mm
Difference: Sigma-Tamron APS-C = 150mm
...and 150mm...it's not so few, I suppose.
However interesting lens remains to be seen the price for a better comparison.

On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)
In reply to:

LukeLT63: I think the choice not to mount sensors with more megapixels as in D600 and D800 is due to the fact that this machine was also created to mount optics very old , that the higher density sensors will really make and effort to be unsuitable. In this I think it is good choice to mount the sensor of the D4.....although I would like to know how many still use optical pre Ai. Certainly not a machine for sport , hunting or photographic studio . I see it impractical even for a journalist or those who report to the types of commands is unsuitable for those who do not have much time to lose. A camera body only suitable for reportage and travel. The price is definitely negative. Spend $ 2,747 for a camera that is not suitable for sports, cf, study it seems a bit ' too limiting especially when you consider the price and performance of the D600/610 ( 1997/1730 dollars).

If not for appearance in retro style where is the innovation ? It seems to me that Nikon took a piece of all the latest digital cameras and edited together .
However, to prospective buyers the final judgment after having tried it in the field. Nikon has done it but is not required to take it.
I continue to put money aside ..... maybe for a D610 or D800.

In reply to:

Chaitanya S: Instead of accepting issues with D600 and provide service to faulty cameras they just release a new camera leaving users of old camera frustrated. Nikon needs to get their act up soon or they will be in trouble.

I agree. This output of the D6010 is a final confirmation of a production of faulty D600. If Nikon wants to prove to those who require serious need to replace the old machine with the new model. It would be unfortunate not to try to compensate those who bought the D600 (and did not spend much).
