On DxO Optics Pro 8.1.5 extends support to Nikon D7100 article (18 comments in total)

Just downloaded and ran the update.

Now I am ready with my D7100 and P7700.

Won't need gear for a long time (except for that Pro pocket video camera that was reported recently in the News section - sounds remarkable).

Nikonworks: Again, I must blow my own horn and thank DPReview for taking my advice on shooting 'Real World' samples.

Only downer is they took my suggestion and ran with it, without a public 'Thank You' to me.

Thanks for the Real World samples.

Take my word, they did not.

I'm talking causation, not correlation.

Read my post on the issue and you will agree.

This series is very helpful in seeing the capability of the D7100.

These are really good, useful 'Real World' sample images.

Thanks DPReview

You are very welcome.

Thanks again.

Nikonworks: Why do most of the 'Real World' samples on this web site all seem to be subjects that do not require a photo release?

Most of the 'Real World' shots we DPReview readers take are not the 'Real World' photos displayed in this article.

Please take this as constructive in nature.
Providing real 'Real World' photos would be very helpful to all of us here, both management and us readers.

And it is about time somebody did!

Hi Barney,

First please note my comment was constructive.

It is not your work or time frame that matters.

It is that DPReview was never set up to capture 'Real World' photos as I stated.

This is the time you should ponder my suggestion and pass it on to the editors or whomever to consider it.

Imagine DPReview giving a lucky bride free photography for testing various cameras at her wedding.
There are many ways to take 'Real World' photos, it is just DPReview has to gear up to do so.

It will be helpful to all of us.

Hello Barney''

Sure: 1 - A family sitting around a table in a restaurant.

A child a few pews in front yawning - widely, ha.

A bride and her groom and then her family

A couple's quick kiss taken by a passerby willing to take your shot.

A dog running toward you and across your FOV.

A newspaper article one does not want to forget.

An accident scene taken under stressful conditions.

I can go on but I am sure you know what I am getting at.

Thanks. For your request for examples.

PS - just got my D7100, from the big A of course.

See. My post in the DX forum for D7....

Mssimo: I have had the Sony RX1 for a month. I might return it for and buy the Fuji x100s. I did not like the results I got with the RX1. Very mixed. Auto focus was unreliable. Face detection did not focus correctly. They could fix all of the issues with a firmware, but I will not hold my breath. Fuji has a good reputation of taking care of customers, I really wish I could say the same about Sony.

Thank you for the image samples, looking forward to the full review.

Please explain how you can return a camera after a month of use.

In reply to:

mas54: Just to vent a bit - why do you guys even bother with on-line samples. Nobody can tell anything from them, unless, of course, they're really awful. The best thing you could do for us is to make some big prints and let us know what the results are. Can we get as good a print as from the a Contax T3 with tri-x?

You must visit Luminous-Landscape.
They base their reviews on PRINTS!!

On Google pulls plug on desktop version of Snapseed article (65 comments in total)

I use the Android app almost everyday.

Never knew they had a desktop version.

If I did. I would have bought it just for the 'Ambiance' adjustment which works great on the Android app.

This is when you should stop a review process, give feedback to the software developer, and use your energies on reviewing something else.

Finally, a camera designed solely for the Nikon Shareholders.

The specs do not make a 'photographer's camera', IMHO.

Over $1,000 for Contrast Detect AF????

Not in my camera bag, you don't.

In reply to:

Marty4650: Cameras can be rated by objective measures (like AF speed and accuracy, Dynamic Range, ISO capability, lines of resolution, etc.) but there will always be a subjective element involved. We sometimes fall in love with a camera, and when we do that we tend to overlook the flaws and emphasize the good things.

I remember around six years ago Phil Askey reviewed the Leica M8. He found numerous flaws with it, and objectively rated it as "recommended" which was just about the LOWEST rating Dpreview was using at that time. Despite this, he loved using the camera, so he immediately went out and bought one with his own money. And it certainly wasn't a cheap camera to buy.

I think something like that has happened here. The Fuji X-E1 is a very nice camera that produces really great image quality. It is exceptionally well built, there are some very nice lenses for it, and despite all the stated flaws, it is probably a joy to use.

Hence... the Gold Award. I call it emotional grade inflation.

I did touch the camera.
It does not deserve to have a Gold award.
The reviewers here transferred a 'Lieca' mentality to Fuji.
Plain amd simple.

Yes, I can read and understand at the same time.

This is a Camera Review, NOT a Sensor Review.

The whole package (eg. the Camera) does not deserve a Gold Award.

And the small, cheap, LCD does not make for "for superior ergonomics".
