  • Commented on Nikon D810 Preview preview

    Offering a D800E next to a D800 is fine.

    The attempt to restrict photographers to buying an incomplete camera -- lacking a necessary part; the Bayer AA filter -- should be commented on more...

  • A number of user reports is already available. For instance, one suitable for Pentax users .
  • Thanks for the kind feedback. Yes, there aren't any limitations to "mixing and matching" as long as the individual components are supported. Yes, it is. The Nikon SB600 is supported through a prede ...
  • I've just made my Cactus V6 review available. I hope people will find it useful. The V6 is the perfect on-camera trigger for the RF60.
  • I just noticed that the Fuji X-T1 is classified as a "semi-professional interchangeable lens camera", just like the K-3. Hence, the scores should be comparable. Surprisingly, the X-T1 is said to ...
  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview

    The X-T1 is said to have better performance than the Pentax K-3 (can easily be seen when turning on the "Compare" mode for the subscores).

    Yet, the K-3 manages 720 shots per charge vs the 350 of...

  • Replied in The con list
    The above was meant to be " K-3 does not use hardware-based image stabilisation ".
  • Replied in The con list
    I did not explicitly ask for an extension of the "Cons" list, but notice that I pointed out that the K-3 does not use hardware-based image stabilisation and that DPReview therefore should not ...
  • Yes. Apparently, it is not the one that Sony used in their own A77, but a newer development.
  • Dear Richard, thank you very much indeed for your response. Much appreciated! OK, let me quickly explain, though, why I think more consistency would be preferable: Often someone will consider ...
  • The K-3 image stabilisation in video mode is not hardware based, i.e., it does not use the shake reduction system, but a software-based solution instead. It is a shocker that Ricoh told you that it ...
  • Dear Richard, Why is " Built-in sensor-shift shake reduction effectively stabilizes all mountable lenses " not a "Pros" bullet point for the K-3? It is for the K-5 II. Shawn Barnett added it to the ...
  • Commented on Pentax K-3 Review preview

    The f/2.8 AF sensor in the centre with improved accuracy and the general ability to focus at -3 EV should have been mentioned (and listed as "Pros").

    If you had tested for it, you would have also...

    @Richard Butler:
    Apologies for mentioning "In-camera raw processing" as a not-listed "Pros" point.

    You do have it listed with different wording.

    I hope you'll consider adding the other points.

    @Midwest:
    Metering and AF sensors work very well, without being stabilised.

    Note that metering and AF sensors are not stabilised on a Canon/Nikon camera either, unless you use a stabilised lens....

  • Commented on Pentax K-3 Review preview

    Why is "Built-in sensor-shift shake reduction effectively stabilizes all mountable lenses" not a pro for the K-3?

    It is for the K-5 II.

    The following "Pros" points for the Nikon D7100 apply to...
