On Nikon D750 First-impressions review preview (1434 comments in total)
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.

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.

Artpt: To All,

So is there a website that does not allow image saving or copying? Could a flash based site be more secure?

With sincere interest and kind regards,

Art

if you see an image on a webpage its already in your cache locally

"Sony might bring curved-sensor technology to smartphone"

Just the one? or is your grammar appauling.

Rick Knepper: Some of these courses are so old that they include topics such as how to load a roll of film, High Resolution: Is 2 MPs the outer bounds?, and my favorite, How to pick the right lab.

and yet that's probably all people load their images onto facebook, flickr, 500px et al

steelhead3: A fun exhibition...I do wonder why the British are so enthralled with the past?

if the USA had a past worth anything then youd understand. A country only a few hundred years old means nothing.

were they Leica specific rubber bands? £20 each?

On Nikon 1 V3 stock shortage prompts official apology article (289 comments in total)

cant be true, when they have a product that really is in demand (800 , 800e) they hike the price 2 weeks after release and try and fob us off with some lame ass excuse

In reply to:

EssexAsh: a set of mediocre snaps only of interest because some actor took them.

go on then oh wise ones, explain them and why theyre so good? give me an educated critique of these masterpieces?

They are simply point and shoot snaps of a bunch of people some actor knew. No thought went into them apart from maybe number 2.
