Rbrt: Somebody should buy this guy a really good camera!
I wasn't thinking of only this application, which is just fantastic, but he obviously has a whole lot of creative talent. He is not going to be taking pictures of snowflakes forever (I guess).
Somebody should buy this guy a really good camera!
Rbrt: DXO doesn't seem to be too impressed with Olympus lenses. Can anybody comment other than to slag DXO in some way?
Thanks! Very helpful.
Thank you Andy, and lovely of you to weigh in. I did see that bit, but their rating for sharpness doesn't seem all that impressive and with 16 megapix as opposed to, say, 24, well, I just wondered if I might be missing something that a guy like you would know about.

sunkenbranch: It was pleasing to see the conclusion. I have the D7100 and am getting the Olympus next week! Wishiing good food and good images to everyone. It all started in a Nikon forum discussing the Df camera. Someone said you ought to check out the Olympus. May I offer the following linkshttp://blog.mingthein.com/2013/09/10/olympus-om-d-e-m1-review-1/http://blog.mingthein.com/2013/09/11/the-2013-olympus-om-d-e-m1-review-2/http://robinwong.blogspot.com.br/2013/09/olympus-om-d-e-m1-review-introduction.html
DXO doesn't seem to be too impressed with the Olympus lens lineup.
Lightroom for $10 a month? No, no, no.
Would have been helpful to know if the dust Cicala saw on the D610 could be cleaned off using the vibrating sensor cleaning mechanism. This was a differentiator regarding oil versus dust spots in the D600.
I love the idea of a stills only camera, but that price!
Sorry, I mean there is nothing in this camera in which I am remotely interested. Your mileage may differ.
I'd say the new focusing technology is pretty interesting. I'd also say you're just trolling.
white shadow: A reasonably good compromise for those who cannot afford a Canon 1DX or 5D Mk3.
Good God it does not have a built-in GPS.
Yeah, but that articulated LCD would be very useful.
wakaba: So it sucks and sticking tailfins (WiFi and strange sensor) on that Olds is not going to make it better.
Canon is dead, check the data on dxo, 30-100% worse than a D600.
Yeah and the D600 (D610) is, what, $900 more LOL?
Daxs: Got my 70D!It is better then you think!Simple! When you start taking pictures you don't want to stop!And all these negative comments just, just making me laugh! :D
Can you comment on the focusing? Seems to me this would be very important for those of us who are mostly interested in still photography.
Rbrt: Why have so few camera makers moved to USB 3.0? There must be either a technical or cost factor. Anybody?
Good point re the storage controller but if Kingston can do it for $12...
USB 3.0 connector on my computer is same size the USB 2.1 connector on the same machine. They have to be compatible.
Would be nice to have the 6D available in the Studio Scene. Maybe it's coming? I know they are in a different class, but helps when you're trying to figure out the extra benefit from the extra cost.
Thanks! I haven't found the plugs finicky on my computer but wasn't aware of the other limitations.

Love the skateboard LOL
So... USB 2.0? 3.0? You would think a USB dock review would mention this.
Manic Tuesday: .with all due respect anyone standing there with a dslr camera at his face for the duration of the game would have taken identical shots. pro means merely that they make living with it, not that its actually good. taxi drivers are also pros, arent they? yet i dont think anyone would claim that they drive better than a person who does not make a living driving a car. same thing with photography. so pls get over the defiled 'pro' abreviation.
Maybe, but a professional is paid to deliver results. There is a guarantee implicit in the quality of a reliable professional's work. If you hire a known quantity, you can be confident you will get back the result you need. Sure you can hire anybody off the street and give them a press pass and a camera, but are you 100% confident that you will get what you need to meet your deadline, no matter what the circumstances of weather, light, what have you, might be?
THAT'S why you hire a professional.
