Joseph Black: It's nice to know some companies choose deliberate development rather than the rapid release of poorly conceived gimmicks. Not to say Apple doesn't have a gimmick here and there, but when they do something they do it right.

Yep. Not only do they innovate, but they have a history of making worthless gimmicks, vomited onto the market by others, actually work.

In reply to:

Steve Balcombe: Why use exposure compensation, which is hit-and-miss? Use spot/partial metering to select a manual exposure. That way, if you take a number of shots with different amounts of white background your metering won't keep changing.

Also, adjustment brushes in LightRoom are a pretty clumsy tool for this sort of job. Select the white area in Photoshop and fill it with pure white.

This is for beginners.

InTheMist: Nice! I think this one is better than the first set.

I meant specifically the composition.

SAERIN: These firmware updates are like refried beans. They can't get on the first try.

I guess you don't work in technology?

Fantastic shots, everyone! I really enjoyed them.

Wow, how do you make a LIVE wildlife course? When I shoot wildlife, it's 90% stalking around searching for subjects. And three DAYS!?

StevenMajor: Nothing creative here. Would be nice to be able to zoom in very close and even circle an object to view it from different angles. I think current technology permits that...I've seen it used in advertising.
I'm surprised the thirst for war cannot be quenched by looking at the front page of any newspaper. Most people who have participated in war (and survive) spend the rest of their lives trying to forget it. Some of these images will trigger unpleasantness in many people.

I bet you're fun at parties.

I'm really enjoying these photo stories from readers and contributors.

On Niko announces service advisory for D810 'bright spots' article (379 comments in total)
In reply to:

InTheMist: My serial no. was flagged, but I definitely do NOT have the issue.

I checked 15s, ISO 400 and 64, both a dark frame and a "pretty dark" scene. It looks just like my D800 did.

I just looked at the keepers in my Lightroom catalog. TWO shots taken at 30s, nothing longer.

I think I'm good.

InTheMist: So, are there any features for grownups?

I don't know, that's just the first thought that popped into my head. They'll be adding a feature to print directly from Facebook next.

In reply to:

Frank C.: Dlsrs are a dying breed, passé, living in the past, yes the core (pros) will always be there but the masses, the masses! Nikon needs large sensor mirrorless cameras or Sony et al. will eat them up! Nikon will end up catering to a niche market only! Hey Nikon, how about a mirrorless Df to compete with the A7r? As Sony gets mightier day after day there will come a time when they may consider cutting sensor supplies to 3rd parties completely, and then what Nikon? run to Canon?

A mirror is a feature. I shoot stuff that, you know, moves.

forpetessake: Fuji is offering lessons in voyeurism, aka "street photography".

Youssef Karsh was more portrait, right? And probably, therefore, closer to ZA than many.

Excellent concept with only 37 entries because the rules are utter rubbish.

Some nice shots though.

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1578 comments in total)
In reply to:

ecube: I have reservations about the "Real World" sample photos presented here. What are the sample photos suppose to illustrate? Good looking pictures does not mean anything for evaluating the camera performance because there is no basis of comparison. As for the processed RAW, what does it proved regarding the camera capability? If the purpose is to illustrate the dynamic range, then the three or four samples illustrate the shortcoming of this D810. I have gotten better results of high and varying lighting condition from my D800 than the samples shown in this review. It seems to me that the shooter did not set the HDR properly.

Is the purpose of the sample photos is to compare the D810 against the D800 and D800E, then why not make a side-by-side shots from all three cameras? The comparison to the Canon camera shows the lack of knowledge by the tester because there is no common and controlled basis of comparison. Moreover, it is not relevant.

Was I expecting too much from DPReview?

Ok, I get you're pining for the old days, but I quite like real-world photos.
