jadot: This is awful, conceptually, in execution, and technically. The models are terribly bad actors, it seems, and the results are ugly. I read a comment which said: "looks like they had a lot of fun" or some such thing. So what? How the krap does that make this abysmal "project" have any value at all in the world. All it tells us is that any idiot can take a picture with a camera and call it art or whatever they like because it's in focus. And that's only because it exists. It's not big and it's not clever, and it's not funny either.
Well well well. Your arrogance is really impressing all the people here. You might be a decent photographer. But you are something really really special besides that. I can not put my finger on it. I am thinking it...... Can u not tell .... What it is
EDIT!!! Hey I just took a look at your blog and "work" and it is Cliché for a Modern Wedding photographer..... You are really really good. At being a great business orientated wedding photographer. Congrats. But this is all my opinion....... Obviously I do not value it as I would something slightly original.
Now now. I was thinking I could avoid publishing my life story, but it seems unavoidable. The reason my dpr portfolio is thin is because I do not fill it. And I had a link to my site until two days ago. It used to be exper-iment.com . But I have stopped my professional work because I had to build a house (literally). That took so long that it made my work redundant! My field of work was also wedding photography. But here in Bulgaria (I am an ex pat....ish) it does not pay enough anyway.....whatever your level. I am still sought after. I still shoot private studio sessions, but also can not be bothered to publish them..... One day you may see my work, but family life here really pulls the professional one down. Anyway my point is that I am a wedding photographer like you......just not at the moment. And I am not a massive fan of the pictures in the article. But they have some originality at least......which is difficult to find in wedding photo field. I must say that the arrogant way in which you try to defend who you are is really unflattering.

steelski: Here is a reminder for you guys, K-3 REVIEW............ Now get back to work.
I do hope you realise I am joking. As there are a lot of british staff on dpreview, they should be able to take a joke. They already said it will come out shorty anyway.
Here is a reminder for you guys, K-3 REVIEW............ Now get back to work.
backayonder: Ah the Wizard of OZ. If only Nikon could find the Courage to produce a D400
I heard the D400 was being worked on by Nikon and NASA combined.....To take pictures of the Dark Side of the Moon.
AdamT: Best thing they did removing the AA filter, they should have done it with the D610 too - does the 5300 have the Superior Toshiba sensor of the D7100 too ?
no, its a sony sensor this time
Light Bucket: The fact that Jared has passions running so high simply from having one of his videos referenced on this site tells me he is doing something right :)
By showing Fro on DPreview tells you the level of photography on the sites many followers, and that DPreview is heading in a direction I may not want to follow.
Nikon2011: what a beautiful world we live in, with 10 billion troubles we have, we have the time to hate-denigrate-laugh to a guy who loves our same hobby (well a job for himself) and does it in its own way. This discussion is full of Einsteins but also self-admitted Noobs who say Jared is just bad or not good enough, why dont YOU ALL start doing something better than Jared instead of whining ? you wouldnt be able to make 100 subscribers on youtube, i suppose out of 1000 shots you make you can make barely 1 keeper (the hyper critics without basics pointing the hand at the guy). What is constructive critics, what is freedom of opinion and speech, in my opinion what most of you are doing is not like that, its just a sample of how bad the human kind can be (calling someone i-diot. unskilled,untalented,unartistic bla bla) critics or childs pretending to do a proper critic ?
I already do something better than Jared.by NOT DOING A SMELL TEST.
steelski: Fro does not know photo....IMO ;)
Hey everyone, looking at his website, yeah there is some good stuff. But thats it.... then when you look deeper, its just a bunch of clichés IMO. nothing overly interesting, As for me being jealous of his success. I don't think you can measure his success its that big. In all seriousness, there is nothing out of my reach in his photos currently. A suitable self made proverb from me about any photographer would be this. Just because you show your face to the Queen, does not make you more beautiful, just easier to critique.
Fro does not know photo....IMO ;)
JEROME NOLAS: I voted #1 but they all are fine!
might not be the greatest idea to post your vote, so it does not scew the results.
karlchwe: Yay! But you know, right, that most readers are still wondering why it takes 9 months to review a camera? So I said it! Sorr-eeeee!
9 Month Gestation period.Obviously.......in all seriousness....Simon/Richard.......How is the K-3 review coming along.
What a bunch of phooey. The D7100 beats the K-3 how exactly....ergonomics, no,IQ, noprice, noLV, nomovie mode, nospeed, NO!!!buffer, noAF, debatable....AF in the dark, Nomenus, no!in body sensor shift, NoGPS stat tracking, noMetering, noViewfinder, noMagnesium body, noshutter actuations reliability, nodampening, noUSB3,noflash sync, yesbattery life yes, flash system yesNikon badge yes!!!!! I think your assessment is total bias. to put it mildly. thanks for putting in time and effort.
KL Matt: Did they use a polarizer? IMG 0349 for instance sure looks like it. I know some wide-angle lenses can make it look like a polarizer was used none was, but I'm not aware that the 18-135 is one of them.
I guess you live farther north. As I think this is all taken in Hawaii it would explain the intensity of the blue in the sky. And I am not joking.
naththo: I suspect this is a pre-production photos. It is not a full review yet with proper sample yet. Just have some patience. Those pre production sample won't be as nice as a proper review sample. When the DPR gets chance to get fully produced camera to do the review. DPR will get proper pentax glass lens for the full review.
Some people...... AYay ay.... It is confirmed by Pentax to be a new Sony sensor. and final image size is not really an indicator of total pixels anyway.
M Jesper: Pentax users are so lucky !
You could be so lucky.Luuuucky lucky lucky.....UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
I am waiting for Pentax/Ricoh to do it right. The Ricoh GR vs Nikon "A". Nikon are going backwards. :(Not small, not retro, just a D600 with a 16MP sensor and a shell.
Great images, if they were not so HDRtastic. :(Each their own, but the unrealism of the picture just shades away the subject matter.
Nikon.....FACE SLAP...... :(
