vFunct: Look at all these scientists with their own research disproving this one!

Didn't know we had so many scientists on this site.

Everyone that posts is SO awesome! They must be superior to other inferior people!

Conversely, I remember every detail around my best photos.

On Enter the 2014 World Press Photo contest article (23 comments in total)

These comments are ridiculous. These are working pros turning excellent, dramatic work daily, sometimes under extreme conditions.

If I go out and shoot all day and I delete all the images because they're crap, oh well, I had a fun day. These guys may not get paid that day!

Take a look at last few year's winners. If you can't say that they are excellent images, you need to reconsider your hobby.

Or, it's just jealousy.

Pixnat2: The D600/610 deliver better images at low ISOs. So if you're not a high ISO shooter, they are better value.

I agree, Pixnat.

I bought a Df, and I've been carrying it every day since then. I love it, but a good value, it's not.

Neither is Mustang.

I wanted a Mustang for when my Minivan isn't necessary ;)

In reply to:

YouDidntDidYou: @dpreview
has dpreview always used exposure compensation to correct the camera's metering in "real world" samples or was it introduced/only for the nikon df???

Without scene modes, how is the camera supposed to know what you wanted?

Exposure compensation is a part of photography.

Only with the cheapest point-and-shoot, or my iPhone, do I allow the camera to choose for me.

Lovely images.

I can't help but wonder how many cameras' fates hang on the weather in Seattle.

I can't understand news organizations laying off photographers. Such a powerful media!

@Josh Do you work for the Chicago Sun Times?

JohnK: Irrelevant, IMO few care what is written in Time Magazine!

Time and National Geographic stand out in a very select group of magazines that actually value photography.

TLD: For goodness sake lift your heads up and talk to the camera!!!

I would be showing the whites of my eyes, slinking in the shadows, caressing metal things while quietly whispering "my precious" in a sinister tone.

Hey DPR staff, great job! I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Just when you finish a sentence, don't lower your voice, it weakens the statement that you're trying to make and is kind of hard to hear in the studio anyway.

Ballsy first effort. Except Simon.

Simon, a FOURTY-FIVE minute break? C'mon, why don't you keep those people chained to their desk and serve them a bowl of gruel served in tin plates carelessly, yet passive-aggressively spooned in by a lady named Helga?

57even: "Excited to announce" is such a wonderful corporate euphemism. I don't think I ever remembered anyone outside marketing using words like that.

"Trepidation" is much more on the mark. That exactly how I felt right up to any announcement date ;-)

Soul-crushing fear is how I would describe it!

Good luck, DPR staff! (Or 'break a leg' as appropriate.)

Sounds like a new challenge.

I'm surprised that the Nikon A isn't here.

In reply to:

Lord Justin: You know, while this looks like a very pretty camera, for rapportage, street photography and portraits it doesn't seem to do anything my D700 (and X-E1) can't do, apart from increase my overdraft by £2,700 odd.

Maybe I'm taking this hobby/passion of mine too seriously. But I've always thought that a good photographer's enduring statement should be his picture, not how he looks while he's taking it?

I got it because it's the smallest full-frame camera that works seamlessly with my Nikkors, has a proper mirror, starts immediately, has a near-legendary sensor and looks that won't freak out my (non-pro) subjects.

Good on you Fuji!

My X100s thanks you.
