On 900MP portraits show human face in extreme detail news story (272 comments in total)

Well this guy's work is nothing special .... if you can afford the gear, then you can produce similar results ..in other words, no talent is required. However, I do wonder whether the quality of a poster-sized print from my (16MP) Olympus E-M5 would look any worse than a similarly-sized image from this photographer's set-up.... probably not.

"The only way is to keep innovating". Which reads "the only way is to keep copying Olympus".

Jorginho: With 6619 votes and Oly at 33,1% and the nr2 at 20,0% we already know EM1 is the winner...

Similar claims were made last when the E-M5 won. I suspected Oly was onto a winner when I first handled that camera at Focusing on Imaging Show (Birmingham, UK). The Olympus E-M5 stand was right next to the Nikon D800 stand .. and when the Olympus floor show started ...several of the guys running the Nikon stand came over to have a look at/handle the camera. One wonders just what will Olympus market that will take the winner's title for a third year running ....(well, who would bet against them doing it?)

On Sony Alpha 7 Review preview (1592 comments in total)

A good camera with a well-merited high score. Given the latter, I expect the A7R will get a gold award (sensor resolution is stunning when looking a DPReview's test scene). However, I just do not understand why Sony released it and the A7R with so few (and expensive) dedicated lenses, and not one of them being a (cheapo) macro.

On Using third-party lenses on Sony Cyber-shot a7 / a7R article (469 comments in total)

Now try using those same lenses on a MFT camera. I suspect image quality, especially edge sharpness, would be considerably better.

In reply to:

JJ Rodin: I find this NEW studio scene COMPLETELY USELESS for looking at high resolution comparison with good quality DSLRs !! Useless!!

DPR needs to fix this with some HIGHER detailed (ie -hard to resolve) money pieces, lithos or something - their OLD Studio scene was FAR SUPERIOR !!

Did I say USELESS ? Oh BTW, I meant USELESS !!

I agree. Why oh why did DPR change the test scene - the new one is terrible! Perhaps someone should start a petition to reinstate the old one.

On Retro Nikon 'DF' emerges from the shadows news story (1513 comments in total)

Looks great ...I guess word must have got around that Olympus's "retro" cameras are selling (why do other manufacturers copy, or should I say, try to copy what they do?) It will be interesting to see if Canon also copies ..er..innovates. I quite like the idea of a digital A1 or F1 (remember those, guys?)

Sod Adobe ...the freebie paint.net does almost everything that this overpriced product does ...correction ...it does EVERYTHING for most users ....provided you download all the freebie plugins.

Go try it it folks ...and be amazed how it brings back the detail in those seemingly super-overblown, unrecoverable, highlights.... from jpegs

Well ok ...it don't do RAW ...but it's only a matter of time before someone posts a raw plugin
Cheers

On Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? news story (1514 comments in total)
In reply to:

marike6: IF you going by IQ, AF speed, low-light AF and AF tracking it's no contest between the D800 and EM-5. Anyone who tells you different hasn't used the D800.

Agree on all points. However the D800 appears to be unforgiving with regards to the blur seen at 100% in many handheld shots - so to negate this, I would assume that for many users, their images have to be viewed/resized down to (say) the size of an OM-D image. I've never owned/used the D800, but comparing DPReview studio shots for both of these cameras, there ain't THAT much difference in images quality, considering the differences in sensor size and price. Given this, the physical size of the OM-D alone makes it a winner.

Direct link | Posted on Dec 28, 2012 at 12:28 UTC

Same here. Over the years, I've owned several Olympus FourThirds and MicroFourThirds cameras and have never found a dust spot on any of my photos. The dust removal mechanism is truely amazing.

Ah ...must due be the 36mp sensor ...why else would a camera that cannot produce sharp hand-held images when viewed at 100% win such an award?
