On First Impressions: Using the Nikon D4 article (183 comments in total)

Great read guys, thanks for the article, which certainly goes beyond the usual preview. While it may be too early to say this, I think Nikon's PR was a bit optimistic in stating D4s noise is a stop above th D3s. From what I've seen, they're evenly matched for the most part. Still, with a 16mp sensor, to keep noise at bay like they have is great. Love the backlit buttons!

On Lightroom 4 Review article (469 comments in total)

As an Apple Aperture user, I'm glad to see many of these new features, such as book design, maps and geotagging, video support, and soft proofing have been present in Aperture 3 since 2010 when it was released. It's refreshing to see that Adobe finally caught up. :-)

i admit, I am jealous. As an avid user of Nikon's CLS system, this is the first time I wish something similar had been implemented across Nikon's speedlight models. Infrared triggering is fine for indoor use, but fails miserably everywhere else. +1 for Canon for taking a leap forward.

On Canon announces EOS 5D Mark III 22MP full-frame DSLR article (488 comments in total)

Great stuff. Gives 5D II users the AF they've always dreamed of, an extra stop of light in the ISO range, and a host of other features. Perfect upgrade.

On Nikon D4 & D800: What do the Professionals Think? article (391 comments in total)

Considering none of these photographers have used neither one of these cameras, let alone field tested them, this interview just seems a bit... premature and speculative.

HDR makes a scene look fake, and begs the viewer to question its authenticity. What John Omvik seems to conveniently forget is that while the cameras in use today are not capable of recording the full dynamic range, the display methods (whether in print or on the screen) are equally incapable of reproducing it. So in effect, while an HDR photo may contain the full dynamic range (as seen by the human eye), this image cannot be accurately displayed because neither newspaper nor magazine print can reproduce such a broad dynamic range, and neither can LCD screens. Photo reportage, whose authenticity is questioned by the viewer, has in effect failed to deliver that raw emotion which it aims for. However, this debate is best had amongst photographers, and not marketers of HDR software.

It's really odd to see this on dpreview which is a website centered on reviews of photographic equipment.

100 RAWs in one burst. at 10fps that's 10 seconds of consecutive coverage. Wow.

On Nikon announces SB-910 high-end Speedlight article (118 comments in total)
In reply to:

Franco8: Cant see anything exciting why i should upgrade my four SB900.
Why cant Nikon release a flash that does not require line of sight
for wireless control, i definately will trade in my current four flashes for the new ones,

In many situations, you do not need direct line of sight in order for CLS to work. Only in expansive outdoor environments. In many indoor venues, the IR signal will bounce off the walls and ceiling and easily communicate with the unit.

It's odd that this made the front page of dpreview. They certainly don't report on new product releases from RED or Arri or Panavision. Seems odd to report on one brand but not the other. Just because it's from a brand that manufactures DSLRs doesn't really justify it. Canon also makes printers, Nikon makes binoculars and miroscopes, but you certainly don't hear much about those product releases.
