On Olympus OM-D E-M10 Review preview (343 comments in total)
In reply to:

BarnET: While i agree about the ridiculous lack of the k3 review.
Let's complain about that somewhere else.

The em10 is a very good value mirrorless. So let's continue our discussion on topic.

Too right, BarnET. I'm so sick of Pentax people complaining in every thread here.

May I respectfully add for mirrorless mirrorless folks - please avoid SLR threads.

In reply to:

Brilliantine Stick Inesct: Nikon and Canon are rapidly becoming dinosaurs. Mirrorless cameras will kill their business model. The mirror less efforts from both these guys have been poor. Olympus and Fuji are showing the way.

Mirrorless sales are down way more than SLR sales.

For me, it's the speed. I gave it a chance - too slow.

itkovian: Looks to me that the D4s is about 3 stops (iso) better than the Fuji XT1. Now, that ladies and gentlemen is impressive!

Yeah, and something weird going on with the XT1 smearing details.

Lan: There's no way they should be allowed to get away with claiming that ISO409,600 is available, because the image is almost completely wiped out by the noise. I can't even work out that the banknote is a banknote, let alone work out what the value was.

Time for someone to implement a "usable ISO" range. Set a resolution target of (arbitrarily) let's say half the sensor's resolution at base ISO. Once that target is no longer met, that's the upper validated ISO value.

Obviously there's a risk that manufacturers will exploit that; hello tiny sensor 40MP superzoom cameras, I know we'll be looking at you. And your lack of any detail resolution. Or we will be soon... Obviously half nothing, is still nothing - so ISO 20million; coming soon ;)

In fact they don't call it ISO 409,600. That's why it's called Hi 4.

On Nikon D610 Review preview (380 comments in total)
In reply to:

ckeek: This camera got lots of one star rating but was scored 87. Which rating is more reliable?

Where did you see one star reviews? A quick view on Amazon shows that the only one-star reviews are about handling the D600 debacle, which was admittedly catastrophic.

In reply to:

aramgrg: Gold? Come on guys, nothing is changed within a year and so, but your ranking still is gold!
For instance, the same kind of changes has been made from T2i to T3I (even more substantial), but the first received gold, the second one silver, which is logical.
Would you give a gold star another t2i announced this year, say t5? I don't think so(even considering price category change).
So it will be logical to change either d610 to silver, or give no award, saying D610 is a continuation of D600 with fixed bags.
Secondly, your comparing tool at the conclusions page is totally irrelevant. Comparing D600 vs D610 nothing changes substantially, besides the value row. How will you explain me the fact that D610 received gold award, nothing has changed upon D600 to the worse, but it is half the value(even the announced price,maybe by 100$, but they have been fairly similarly priced when announced)?

The D600 also got gold, if I remember correctly.

I use the black card technique.

It's like dodging, but instead of on the computer - actually even more like in the darkroom - you wave a black card in front of the lens during the long exposure.

If you could do that at say 1/60th, that would be awesome, alas.

In reply to:

corbus: If DPR are a serious team I suggest you spend more of your working time to test cameras and lenses instead of producing "unboxing" presentations...

Answering the whiners took longer than actually posting this quickie then, it seems.

Point well made, dcd.

Would it be fair if photographers got a cut of the advertising?

In reply to:

thx1138: Wow, Barney you really let them off the hook with that first question. The answer was insipid and you should have highlighted the fact that the weaknesses are in the lack of sensor development for going on 7 years. From clear leaders to clear trailers. Of course the sensors are still good, but they are not great except for high ISO noise. You could have at least pressed them harder on how they will face the challenge not only from Sony, but Toshiba and Fuji. And FWIW, I am a Canon person through and through, but would dearly love to see a sensor like the Sony 36MP in a 5D IV. Also don't forget even if Canon can match the current Sony sensors, by that time Sony will probably have moved ahead again with their next gen sensor.

"Some of our readers regard Canon as rather conservative - maybe a little boring..."

Ouch. You certainly can't be accused of throwing only softballs. Well done and gutsy.

Intellectually interesting, and very impressive for a video camera.

effstawp: Doesn't matter how you cut it, the D600 was a PR disaster from the get go.

Yep.

Nikon's reaction rather.

They should be ashamed.

What camera has USB 3.0 other than the D800? There is one.

Yes, yes, as soon as they can, you know, focus on things that move.

CSC sales are way down.

On Meet 'The Archivist' at National Geographic article (35 comments in total)
In reply to:

backayonder: As Photographers do you ever wonder what will happen to your images when you go to that great F stop in the sky? Do you worry that all those images laying dormant on obsolete hard drives will be thrown away okay perhaps it is just me then but I do wish that there was some sort of archive available for ordinary folk.

In fact, I worry about it a lot.

One of my kids has a little aptitude in photography and I'll leave everything to her, with copies to the others. That, and I'm printing my very best.

That and online.
