MGJA: This is silver, but Canon 70D is gold. Heh.

Really, I am ever more convinced that dpr just hands those out in order to maximize page reloads as irate fangurls battle it out in the comments. Fine, whatever puts food on their tables is a-ok with me.

"No kidding, these days Canon's APS-C cameras can't even keep up with the image quality of little MFT sensors."

No matter what a score says. My canon apsc camera takes better photos than a 43 and m43 ever did. IQ is not only about sensor noise. Bigger format captures also more detail and colour information.

There is a difference between fixing your product and upgrade.

On Nikon Df preview (2792 comments in total)
In reply to:

Saffron_Blaze: Of course it should be less expensive than the D800!! The D800 is pro-level in all regards not just the sensor.

The Df is a cooler looking D600 around the D4 sensor, so a moderate price increase might have been accepted (despite the missing features like video and flash) but not to this extreme. In fact in the UK you can get a D800 for less than a DF!!! That is silly.

Well in the UK you have the bankers tax to pay. And you love it!

For anyone making money on video, this sum is chump change. For all the others, you probably didn't fork out 5500$ for the body alone. So you should complain about Nikon Df, that lacks any video for a cool 3000$.

Ken Johnes: 500 $ for a silly firmware upgrade? and the target audiance for this camera have been waiting eagerly for this AF upgrade .
wow, greed and trying to milk it´s customers with incremental upgrade are gonna hurt the big dogs here, both of em, look at what nikon is trying to do.

i think nikon and canon are competing with each other on how to sell less for more, while other companies are making innovative products at a fair price , no wonder these greedy top dogs have to make up for their loss with such silly act..

The upgrade is much cheaper than getting a new camera. Canon has to be congratulated on this one. Not criticized.

In reply to:

vFunct: Only talented people can use this camera.

Untalented people have to use Sony or Canon or Olympus.

Also, it is a mark of amateurs to use cute baby mirror less cameras.

Aww how cute - a newb photographer with a mirror less camera!

Maybe one day the mirror less camera photographer will grow up and use a Reflex system like the big boys do.

Yay! We're rooting for you, cute little mirror less camera kiddos!

Have you forgoten the worst of the mirorless crowd. The Nikon 1 system?

On Retro Nikon 'DF' emerges from the shadows article (1396 comments in total)
In reply to:

nathondetroit: The only thing that sucks about this generation of cameras is that we're paying more money for less features. There are benefits of usability, and some construction/durability benefits, but in general stripping cameras down to their basics should yield some cheaper bodies as well.

Why not replace a mode dial with a shutter speed dial on the D3200? Why not replace a high res screen with a low res one? (Think M9–If the screen isn't the primary finder, then its performance isn't a necessity). There could be a pretty "hip" plastic rendition of these cameras...

Once "simple" and "retro" break through the "premium" class of cameras, there will be a huge reaction; Throw some real dials on entry levels cameras and give purist consumers a chance to reap the benefits on technological advancement–not pay a premium to get a luxury replication of bricks of the past.

Modern cameras walk all over old ones. Deal with it.

On Canon EOS 70D Review preview (681 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jimmy jang Boo: If the $1200 70D is a cutting edge stalwart, it's a seriously dull cutting edge.

Wouldn't be better to call it what it really is? According to dpr, image quality isn't really any better than the NEX-5N, which also meters and focuses better than the 70D. And in terms of low light and high ISO performance, the 70D lags a good distance behind the 5N. Gold must be pretty cheap to be so freely given away.

What good does the sony sensor bring if it's equiped with subpar optics and slow AF?

Direct link | Posted on Nov 1, 2013 at 00:21 UTC

Sigma is better than nikon telephotos(zooms) and on par with canons. For a lot less.

On Nikon D610 preview (627 comments in total)
In reply to:

Panasonicus: Fans of global Nikon expert, Ken "Kenneth" Rockwell, will have observed Ken's conversion this year to Canon. I was a faithful Nikon user since the late 60's and converted to Canon about 7 years ago after a few failures of non-made in Japan Nikon equipment. However, due to the need to downsize I am now quite happy over at Panasonic and a G3 owner. Nikon need to up their game and return manufacturing to Japan, get rid of the cheap gold paint on their lenses that symbolises bling and not quality.

Fanboy.

In reply to:

69chevy: This just shows what most DSLR owners already know.

Sensor based AF is not very good regardless of what you call it.

The focus errors are less noticable on M4/3 because of the larger DOF, but they are there.

It's just the opposite. On sensor AF is better than of sensor.

In reply to:

ProfHankD: I really don't much care about PDAF. In fact, I usually prefer manual focus with peaking. However, I'm impressed to see that Canon's dual pixel structure doesn't seem to have sacrificed IQ for PDAF. According to both DxOMark and the DPReview sample images, this sensor is a significant improvement over the sensor in, for example, the 100D or 700D. It still has a half stop less dynamic range, but it's the first 1.6X crop sensor Canon has made that doesn't get trashed by the 1.5X crop one in the Sony NEX-5.

DPReview says the 70D competes with Canon's FF -- I cannot agree. The Sony NEX-7 outperforms the 6D at low ISO and looses to it at high ISO, but 6D IQ is always better than the 70D in color depth, dynamic range, and low light. Still, the 70D proves that Canon's dual pixels are a viable approach, competitive in APS-C IQ while incorporating a useful new capability. Now if only Canon would give us direct access to the 40M half-pixels.... ;-)

Dual pixel could widen DR. One sensel shot @ iso100 the other @ iso1600. Dual pixel tech opens a huge area of new posibilities. That's why this tech is revolutionary.

rb59020: Here we go again, another Zeiss bashing session. Most of the readers here would have no problem blowing $800-$1000 on an unlocked iPhone5s that will be obsolete in six months.

What did you people do before the F3AF came out in '83? OMG! It's not autofocus! How am I supposed to take a photo without autofocus!?!

Whaaaaa!

Most iphone users spend 199$ at front and other expenses are ignored.

On Editorial: Why I can't stop taking iPhone Panoramas article (300 comments in total)
In reply to:

graybalanced: People forget how inaccessible panorama photography used to be. I used to admire film panoramic cameras and knowing I probably couldn't budget for one.

With film SLRs I fought to stitch scanned film frames together manually. Then software automated the process, and digital SLRs made it even easier.

To have this capability as a one-shot feature in a pocket camera is amazing. (Who cares if this camera is called an iPhone, it's really a versatile 8MP pocket camera with digital wireless capabilities.)

Having this capability in a 700€ phone is meh. Having it in a phone for 70€, now that is amazing.

On iPhone 5s Studio Comparison article (263 comments in total)
In reply to:

Studio3Jim: Apple gets the press because they started the whole so-called smartphone thing. And somehow what a bunch of needy fanboy photographers think is somewhat less the zero interest to them.
That said I've had dozens of cell phones since the mid eighties and every iPhone since the first. And no other electronic device I've ever owned has had such amazing resale. And my iPhone 64Gb 5c will likely not break my resale streak.
Can any other cellphone model or digital camera for that matter claim as much???
We know the answer. And for now that's why they're the single largest selling individual models made. Worldwide.
Move on. Please.

Iphone is a yupi gadget. Alnd the american yupis define in the world what is "in". It's a class defining thing. If you can fork 700 to 1200$ for a phone, then you are "enlightened". Same goes for every other apple product. You are special if you use apple.
