InTheMist: Rendering reminds me of the Sigma a good thing!

And yet it won the bokeh showdown.

Old Canon model, but still.

Thorgrem: The logical conclusion of all these buy guides is that Amazon greatly overestimated the demand of Sony camera's and still have a huge stock left that needs to be sold. Why else such useless articles without use cases?

Yeah, having a third of the guide full of various A7 models is kind of silly.

Coyote_Cody: Has Nikon sold any of these Nikon Df (in comparison to development costs) ? What real photographer wants this beyond nostalgia or utter retro ??

@badi I like it because it's pretty small and yes, it looks good. It's just a nice compromise between size, speed and image quality. I do use it with some old classic Nikkors often.

I don't like the mirrorless experience because you have to start it each time and I've never found one with a focusing system that felt fast. (Nikon 1 was the best so far, but tiny sensor puts me off)

Yes, I wish it was even smaller (FM3a is my film camera) and had some improved ergonomics and a better focusing system for the price.

I bought one. It's my most-used camera and I have a D810 and a couple of mirrorless to choose from.

Any statement on weather sealing?

Mixed feelings about the 'light' interface. It is attractive, just - different.

I couldn't care less about 4k video, though.

I've owned a lot of Olympus Tough series, but the Nikon 1 AW1 really does deserve a place here.

On article What's missing? Ming Thein on the state of mirrorless (751 comments in total)
In reply to:

NoMirror99: Thein has some points. But, his credibility, for me, is destroyed by his ignorance about Sony cameras. Why on Earth didn't he RTFM before he wrote. However, I don't doubt that he is a talented photographer. Almost everyone posting here says he is. I have't seen his work, but I'm willing to accept that as fact because the members of this forum as a group have credibility.

He HAS used them all and "each of these (Sony) cameras suffered from significant shortcomings"

belle100: Leather - Dead animal skin that tends to mold in humid weather. Don't want any of that near my gear. Yuck. I prefer easy maintenance materials like nylon or polyester that are treated to be non-stick and resistance to dust and moisture.

Are you serious, or do you have a political agenda?

Leather wears and looks awesome and lasts a long time. I've worn through five canvas or nylon bags but my leather bag just keeps looking better and better. I carry it every day on foot and train.

cheetah43: What 28mm sees is not what the eye sees looking straight ahead. Why do people rave about a 28mm lens with all its distortions? Yes, you can do this, that and the other post-processing. It should be click, post to the printers, and no faffing around with the image.

@DStudio

Very poetic and well said.

Still I dislike the 28mm field of view.

In reply to:

mononk: I certainly do not appreciate the type of pictures you post on these so called "real world sample gallery". Would you publish any of these shots in your SHOW CASE. Come on guys, work a little harder, you are supposed to be pros.

I quite liked the images.

SKPhoto12: With all due respect, would it not be possible to take pictures that don't look like they were taken by and for the Adams Family?

You shoot what's in front of you. Looks like some areas that have fallen on tough times. Soulful. I like them.

Maybe you would prefer the D810 shots my Miss. Aniela.

On article MIT proposes new approach to HDR with 'Modulo' camera (115 comments in total)
In reply to:

forpetessake: "MIT proposes new approach" -- LOL, as many people already mentioned here, this idea has been discussed for years, there is nothing new about it.
The other ideas that were discussed are: global shutter -- multiple shorter exposures instead of a single longer one. Then, multiple switching load capacitors -- I think some company already implemented it. Then, pixels with different sensitivity (at the expense of noise). And probably more.
What the DPR should have mentioned though, is that all those approaches extend dynamic range by proportionally lowering the sensor base ISO, they can't improve the dynamic range at the same ISO -- the only way to do the latter (at the same CMOS) technology is to increase the sensor size.
There is a limit how low ISO can go before it becomes impractical. If say, ISO 25 is the lowest people can be interested in, compared to base ISO 100 now, then it means any of those methods can increase dynamic range by maximum 2 stops.

I'm not being completely sarcastic. But I do want this in my effing camera.

Ok, great. Everyone had the same idea.

Now, can someone please put it in my EFFING camera?

k tnx.

Very nice. Thank you!

I like the 'like' button too.

Any plans to roll this into User Galleries as well?

I got VSCO so that I don't have to spend time in Photoshop - and yet, I have to use exactly the side-by-side that you want.

Great turnaround at Olympus. Keep up the good work.
