Hugo808: What on Earth is going on in #10? Looks positively hallucinogenic. Not a real place surely?

It's in the "altered images" (Photoshop) category. Nice piece of art, but ... you know.

I really enjoyed this. Your great uncle was a great photographer.

On article Nikon D3300 Review (248 comments in total)
In reply to:

Richard Murdey: The D3300 is a solid camera. As the review states, though, times they are a-changin'. Is it better than, or does it even have a reason to exist next to, mirrorless cameras carrying a similar price and feature set? That is the question...

With each generation, the entry level dSLR becomes harder and harder to recommend to people just looking for a casual camera with good image quality.

Once it was a no-brainer: "Yeah, get a D40. Sure, the D60. The D3000, definitely." Today... no. I wouldn't. I can't even in all honesty imagine what kind of person I would recommend the D3300, or even its discounted predecessor, the D3200, to.

I bet ten rolls of Ilford that it focuses faster and the battery lasts longer than any mirrorless. Cheaper than most too.

A mirror is a feature.

Wow. I'm glad there are such dedicated hackers on the planet.

KW Phua: Half cooked RAW resulted in poor jpeg. You can't find detail in hi ISO jpeg, except Canon.

What? Canon ruins details more than any manufacturer except maybe Fuji with waaay too aggressive noise reduction.

brycesteiner: I can't believe they are still putting this out? Mirrorless is so far ahead of the game. Nikon, where is your innovation?

Mirrorless is still lacking in focusing speed, startup speed and battery life.

In reply to:

tabloid: I stand to be corrected.

Was this picture taken whilst France was under Nazi occupation. (and collaboration).

Dates are under the photos. None of them were made during the occupation.

In reply to:

Jurka: I think it is "crop" medium format, only slightly larger than conventional ff cameras.

It's the same as offerings from Phase One.

This camera offers a lot for the price.

vesa1tahti: Almost as good as Nikkor 35mm/1,8 DX lens.

That doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

In reply to:

Liviu Namolovan: Judging by these photos, a verry good lens! Almost a Zeissness rendering. Messy/busy bokeh?! Now that's an exageration!

Sigma 35/1.4 has the best bokeh among lenses that can autofocus.

In reply to:

AKH: Hmm. this is a camera I'm potentially interested in. It looks really great, but I'm sorry to say that the image gallery does not in anyway reflect the high Gold Medal rating - it actually cooled my interest in this camera considerably.

After a brief love affair with the X100s (too slow to do ANYTHING) I have to say that the JPEGs out of camera from Fuji are the best I've ever seen. I usually shot Raw + JPEG and ended up keeping the JPEG because it was just so awesome. I've never seen such colors from any other manufacturer.

In reply to:

Richard Franiec: It is really refreshing and encouraging to see the smaller player like Sigma to go toe to toe with the legend like Zeiss. For fraction of the price.
I'm watching recent Sigma's unpretentious approach to their new product with awe.

This lens among the other Art Series lenses should serve as a bucket of an ice water on the heads of disillusioned profiteers from major brands.

@joe6pack

Yes, because Canon and Nikon have a bunch of primes with IS/VR

In reply to:

Jogger: Im sure its a fine lens, but, 50mm is such a boring focal length. Not wide enough to capture the atmosphere and too short for intimate subject captures. The only reason 50mm primes were popular in the past because it was such a simple and cheap lens to manufacture and bundle with SLRs.

@Ron A
I'm not sure this weight puts it in the "walk-around" category for me. Still, I'm probably buying.

In reply to:

InTheMist: I don't see the need to rush out another 18-300.

So, it's a bit cheaper and slower than the "old" one. Am I missing something?

Thanks ppastoris. I can see how this would be important to Nikon's target market.

Ew, Asiangirl's teeth!

I've been eagerly awaiting on this SB-N10 for my 1 AW1.

I'm concerned about this text: "available in markets outside the U.S."
Luckily I am.

In reply to:

Peiasdf: I really don't see the point of these lenses. If you don't care much about IQ, just get a superzoom compact. If you want some IQ and are willing to pay for it, Sony RX10 is much better buy.... way smaller with way faster lens. I think this is for people that wants a DSLR but don't care to learn how to use a DSLR.

I disagree here. A superzoom has its place.

For me its place is mostly at f/8 on the beach, snow or city in good light with a prime in my pocket.
