On Lomography adds Lomochrome Turquoise film to lineup article (74 comments in total)

£7 a roll! ah those poor tragic hipsters. I'll carry on buying film for £1 from my local pound store and if i desperately feel the need to get my images looking that crap, i'll just adjust the tone sliders in Lightroom.

On Readers' Showcase: Documentary and Street photography article (111 comments in total)

tedious drudgery symptomatic of modern "street" photography. Images that say nothing and mean nothing. Oh look, a guy with a suitcase. so what. But its black and white so must be art.

Jahled: Typical, just ordered the 750 for work! Mumble

Grumble

Yeah i wouldnt worry, ive a v750 and am in absolutely no rush for one of these new ones now. All you need extra are some acid etched glass plates to fit in the film holders , resting them on the neg's do a better job of keeping things as flat as possible. They cost next to nothing from any good picture framer who will cut it all to size.

goloby: All I'm asking is for every hobbyist or professional photographer out there that has never tried film to give it a go. Get an old film camera, they are cheap. Most of your digital lenses will work. Buy a few rolls of Provia slide. Or some negative film, Portra, Ektar, Pro400h. Send them to a proper lab for dev and scan. You might be pleasantly surprised.
Or if you are into instagram and filters get some cheap film, kodacolor, superia200/400, colorplus 200, vista 200. See where all the hype comes from.
Are you a b&w buff? Then you have to try T-Max and Tri-x. There's no substitute.

this. do it. Spend a few quid on a charity shop camera / lens and a roll of film and just try it :)

RobertSigmund: The best method at the moment is copying the negative/slide with the digital camera. Brings better results than scanners and is faster. You need a macro lens of course, and a slide copier. I have the old minolta slide copy unit 1000 for the Minolta ring flash. Very good device.

from what ive seen of various comparisons from peoples blogs whove done this, there is barely any difference between scanner and camera on a 100% crop comparison.

On Phase One announces Capture One Pro 8 article (66 comments in total)

can it handle TIFF files yet? That stopped me using previous versions as i couldnt load in scanned in TIFFs from film negatives. Windows Paint loaded them up effortlessly but for some reason C1Pro couldnt.

raztec: Oh Nikon! Why can you never get it right?
Af-ON button and 1/8000 shutter speed would have made this the perfect camera.

OP: no , youd still find something to whine about.

In reply to:

nicolaiecostel: I was expecting a replacement for my D700 and they announced a glorified D610. Now I have to save for a d3s or something.

1/4000 and 1/200 sync ? This gives a hint as to where they got the shutter unit.

SD cards ? Really ? I have CF cards, they are robust and fast, I love CF cards and I have never bent a pin in my D700 even though I use 3 different cards.

AA filter ? Was it necesary on top of the rest ?! The body seems smallish, with a modest grip.

I got into Nikon when the engineers and photography enthusiasts designed and specked the cameras, now it's all down to the marketing department designing a gradient in the camera lineup, from the cheapest to the most expensive. A loosing strategy, made for the amateurs. What am I supposed to buy as a full-on action camera ? The D4s ? Too heavy, too expensive, overkill.

Screw this, they can keep it !

3300 shots? why not just shoot video and take stills! jeez. Try thinking about the shot next time. On a 12 hour shoot that's 5 shots per minute Non stop!

D200_4me: Looks like there's finally a D700 replacement. But I've moved on already. Who knows...if they had gave us a D700 replacement awhile ago, I might not have been so inclined to go looking elsewhere.

you shouldnt let solutions get in the way of a good whiner.

In reply to:

Felix11: "Both lenses, as we might expect, are manual focus only"

I wasn't expecting that, I am disappointed as I thought the Sony FE lens range was about to get significantly better.

Why did DPR expect that I would know they were manual focus?

because they expected to be speaking to people who know the basics of zeiss lenses. Guess not in your case. Always an exception.

Aroart: I think people should stop talking about cameras they haven't used and use the cameras they own...

oh how wise you are. Lets just remove all reviews completely from now on and be done with it.
