On Sigma USB Dock quick review article (142 comments in total)

For a moment there I thought this was a module to take pictures via usb, and it would've been such a great concept: have a "dock" that houses the sensor, mount a lens on it, and control everything from the provided software!
Then I read the article introduction...

In reply to:

Hobbit13: These (amazing) photos have been online for ages (Wikipedia uses them in many articles). So what's the "news"?

I'm still deeply impressed by the image quality of the "Turret lathe operator ", even for today's standards, that's a very high resolution picture.

Let's not be rude, dude, not all people are aware of these things. It is ok to resurface things from the past every now and then.

Kitamura: I want one!
I am curious, what does the 'N' stand for?

Nano, perhaps :P

He ended up being controversial, so he did good.

In reply to:

ecm: Much as I love the fact that there's all of a sudden "reviews" at DPReview.... this camera is getting close to a year old -it was announced in August of last year. Local big box stores have already sold off their stock at fire sale prices (about $130) a couple months ago.

Still, keep 'em coming; the "big gun" pro dSLR cameras are fun to look at but it's not as though I can afford any of them - $8000 for a Leica? Really?

it is probably that reviews are sometimes based on the camera's popularity. at launch maybe it wasn't considerred fit for an in-depth review, but enough sales gave it that missing inch to deserve one, at least so the people that bought it know what they bought.

edit: i'm just guessing here, but it seems reasonable :P

On Leica M-Monochrom preview (451 comments in total)

i wanted to complain about price vs limits (to me b/w only is a drastic limit in a digital camera), but then i've seen the samples :/

In reply to:

TrojMacReady: Besides obvious differences in the look of the sensors themselves, the relatively high shadow noise (push a couple yourself) at base ISO, seems to be the clear give away that we're not looking at a Sony Exmor 24MP sensor. Especially given the fact that these are jpegs, with NR.

so basically i have no ideea if you side with nikon or with sony in this comment :/

In reply to:

Aleo Veuliah: After seeing some samples and some videos, reviews and comparisons, I confirmed that the Nikon D800 is the best choice now for serious photographers

Well done Nikon

i think they reccomend this because of the distant objects. with such resolution, distant objects can be seen very well on a 1:1 zoom, and the slightest shake can easily blur them no matter how steady the hand is.

On Preview:sonyslta77 (342 comments in total)

EVF is a big minus, but let's just say that for now this is what sony puts into APS-C cameras. However, i have a feeling that an anticipated A99 won't get back to OVF, which it would be a shame, not to say fail.

Amazing picture! Once because i just love minimalism and second because i can't say if there's a cavity or a bump.
