On article Fujifilm X100S Real-world Samples (205 comments in total)

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.

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.

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 article Google pulls plug on desktop version of Snapseed (63 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.

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".

Of course the colors are muted, notice the deep shadows they are in.

Everyday I deal with people sticking their cell phones trying to get my shot.

This tecnology will make matters worse, for me. But should enable those cell phone users to get much better shots than they are getting now.

For me Light is what keeps me ahead of the cell phone users.
Now they will edge closer in results.

Instagram and other sites better gear up for a large increase in uploads.

More exchanged photos can only help this world of ours.

On article Phase One releases Capture One Express 7 (12 comments in total)

Thanks for this article.

I always stayed away from Phase One and in my mind that spells 'alot of money', cameras, etc.

but I clicked the link and downloaded the 254MB file.

Ran Express and can clearly see the detail in my D5100 RAW files that I have been missing using other converters.
I compared several. I did not compare DXO yet.
The Express white balance tool is also remarkable.

When I get my D7100 I will likely buy the full program.

I just completed two shoots today and after my testing of express I reworked both of them to much better final images than I obtained with my current workflow.

In reply to:

Nikonworks: Oil is not dust.
Oil is not dirt.

Oil is filmy and hard to clean off any surface.

I believe this word 'oil' belongs in this DPReview advisory article.

Begining to remind me of Pravda during the Cold War.

Kindly: If you knew anything about Pravda during the Cold War, you would know I was referring to the need to 'Read Between The Lines' as most Pravda readers learned to do.
This is a Photography web site, we are privlidged to be able to participate here while there are so many problems in the world.

And yes, the word 'oil' belongs in the article above.

In reply to:

snow14: macro four third is the best compromise between size and IQ so far.

It seems that you are right.

Rumors has a 'Foveon' type sensor by an OEM set for introduction this year that is supposed to have very low noise.

I am sitting with what I presently have and will watch the market for what becomes available later this year.

DPReview, with that 'Con' list and that "Price', you have to be kidding us.

How could great image quality in the face of all those operational/functional 'Cons' be worth a Gold award?

Anfernee Cheang: I know I paid nothing to DPReview, so I feel comfortable with the progress. All information I saw here is free of charge. Is it weekly magazine that you have to paid, and so that it must be providing one review per issue? No it's not. Then why complaining?

I do hope DPReview can speed up a bit more. But all I have is only appreciation. Because I know there is no free lunch.

DPReview, I think it's time for you to review how to better utilize the cooperation with DxO Mark. You are partners, right? So there must be some more efficient ways. For example, they concentrate on the lab result of sensors and lenses, and you concentrate on the bodies, performances, AF, menus, etc? More and more new cameras are coming in the next few years, but I know you can make it.

You missed the point.

We are only asking for the 'Good Old Days' to come back to DPReview.

ChrisSwiss: I really appreciate how DPReview staff is engaging in these news discussions. Thank you and keep up the good work! They seem to listen to their users, other than some manufacturers... (are you reading this, Sony?)

They are Not listening to the readers.
Read below and you will even see that they go to the point of ridicule toward posters.
See for yourself, right below this post.
