canonpro: ****To all those haters, who say his work is poor, etc. Your just out of touch, Cooper really is an innovator, the firey trash the dress shot for example is from 9 years ago, seriously think of photos 9 years old and show me something from then that was this well done. How many photographers out there have tried to immulate his trash the dress themes. To the haters, look at your photos from 2006, and post them, to show us how great your work was.

Haters have nothing to show. In fact, look into just about any hater's gallery and, yes, it is empty.

Very good quality. One must consider that many of these were shot with a 51 MP camera and that asks a lot from the lens.

$1 a shot can add up quick. I always thought the film packs were like the printer ink racket. Lock 'em in with high dollar supplies. No thanks, not for me.

Songline: Why is it so brutally ugly?

It is not a consumer toy. And no, it doesn't come in pink.

400 million, well now, the Darwin effect is really taking hold.

Good. Anything to help control the human population.

You can color me impressed. Most of these small sensor cams have smeary details even at base ISO, yet this one looks so good. The lens is wonderful. It remains very good even to the edges and without fringing. Full zoom is not bad either.

McLuhan: Hi Dpreview staff,
Great review but is the luggage tray on your bike sturdy enough for a full bag of lenses and camera? I plan to carry 6 lenses in a bag, plus a tripod, 8kgs in total. I am thinking about getting one for my Giant too and wanna know your feedback on that, thanks !

I was wondering about that as well.

MustyMarie: But some/many of us COULD NOT CARE LESS ABOUT THE ROYAL FAMILY AT ALL !!

A family of twits who would be no-one if not for a name & wealth (inherited and certainly NOT deserved) !!

This is the most asinine of human activity, a given family of land owners, makes them special - how & why & STILL ?

The epitome of arrogance, and some buy into this and almost worship this utter silliness, even in other nations !

If ANY thing, their wealth should be taken and distributed to the poor of the UK, the land used as a park for all those 'commoners', and a law making it a crime to pay homage to the family name and the individuals - forever.

Very repulsive in the current age, or ANY age actually.

Only small & sad minds of individuals pay any importance to this family, sad!

String, Trump is just a side show. When things get serious, he'll go away.

Photato: Consumer junk as always with tiny pixels.
Canon S120 with 12MP despite using an older sensor shows the importance of large pixels. Even after considering the sensor size difference, the S120 still comes ahead.
Olympus and Sony, thanks for the carbon emissions and the landfill material.
I can't wait for next year model with even smaller pixels !

They did manage to pull a bit extra IQ over to competition. I do agree. Why can't they use a 1/1.7" sensor for better IQ at this price point?

Link | Posted on Aug 10, 2015 at 14:30 UTC

Very nice sharpness and detail. A little disconcerting is the shadow noise at base ISO and rather strong at ISO 800. Oh well... if you want the MP race, you have to take the noise along with it.

On article Lens Rentals Canada closes its doors (178 comments in total)

Sounds like they wanted to quit when they were ahead. As stated, the owner wanted to get back to his photography and explore the globe. That isn't a cheap hobby. The problems they had with the carriers was just an incentive to get out of the business now.

Impressive pixel shift mode. More sharpness and resolution than the D810.

Now that this sensor is out there. I'm sure Nikon is working on the next D8xx. Perhaps it will end up in a future Pentax FF. The tech sure moves fast.

On article Nikon 1 J5 and Samsung NX500 added to studio test scene (131 comments in total)

Looking at the raw images, the new sensor in the J5 provides lower noise and slightly better resolution than the V3/J4. The last sensor was a disappointment. Too much base ISO grain. This sensor, while not perfect, is quite an improvement.

Why all the super zoom samples of late? Please review something with a sensor that is larger than a pin head.

Well, I am wearing a pair of Nike shoes.

Finally, a glimpse into this Sony (?) 20mp sensor. Seems on par with the fabled 16mp APS-C sensor and a bit less noise than the 24mp sensor.

Sigh... Wish I had kept that 200mm 2.8L prime. Sharp as a tack and had the reach of a 300mm on APS-C SLRs. Slap on a quality 1.4x converter for even more.

In reply to:

justmeMN: $700 for a 1/1.7 sensor sounds like a tough sell.

300mm-equivalent is short compared to other zooms. The upside is that it may have better optics than more extreme super zooms.

Exactly what I was thinking. ~$400 makes more sense.
