On Corinne in the Linkedin Headshots challenge (8 comments in total)

WushuMR2: looks like a soft light pointed directly in front of her to soften the face, a hairlight just behind her right shoulder and a hairlight just above her left eye both pointing downwards at 40 degrees and a fill light pointed upwards to light up her neck

In reply to:

andywhoa: What camera did you do this review with? When I attach my XF14mm to my X-T1, the focus distance display disappears from the camera's display. However, in your review, it is still present.

he used the fuji x-pro 1 as indicated in the gallery samples...

On Actual Pixels - the pixel peeping app for iOS post (33 comments in total)
In reply to:

gl2k: Hard to imagine that any serious pro photog would ever use an iPad for assessing critical sharpness.
I mean ... even the process of uploading a full 36mp image to the iPad takes an eternity. Not to mention you wanna download 200 images to pick the best one.
The iPad is a nice toy but definitely not more, when it comes to photography.

we pros don't use the actual raw 36mp photos on ipads.. we send the jpgs to the ipad to check color, focus, framing etc and clients can review the photos live as they are being taken..(the 36mp raw photos are kept in another card for post viewing when we return to the studio).. ipads can also be used to remote control the settings, snapping the photos directly from the ipad and using the ipad as a livescreen monitor in tight situations where you can't see the back of the camera's lcd.. there are many uses for ipads with cameras where you have no idea to begin the many opportunities ipads can do for any photographer be they pro or amateur.

In reply to:

cassano: It's kind of amusing to see people are worrying about touch-screen cameras here. Touch-screen on camera is lame, but in many other areas, it shines. smart phones, tablet PCs, car's console, ATMs, POS machines. I went to a local medical center a few days ago, they have huge touch screens near every entrance -- for you to navigate inside the building, find you doctor, etc. I have also seen touch screens in book stores, libraries, subways, etc.

Touch screen forces UI designers to design simpler UI, software developers to hide details and only expose the essential APIs. It frees the user from overly complex menu systems. It only makes our life easier, faster. Of course, touch screens cannot replace buttons on a DSLR, or keyboard/mouse for a PC -- for complicated tasks.

In reply to:

Ben O Connor: ... and sadly no wifi as well.

Well nikon, in this century, we have amazing electronic devices called: " cell phones " and we want to download an app via internet or store to control our cameras, not just to share images :(

I was so happy until 1 minutes ago. Where is the wifi seriously ?? (alright with additional gps, i also dont want to be tracked by anyone out of my permission. so its alright if there is not gps.... but where is wifi??)

you have to buy the separate WU-1a Wireless Adapter to use wi-fi from D7100 to your phone

it needs a completely new ios overhaul would like to put apps in filing cabinet style and scrap the 12 app limit folders and add more apps in the folders, and make a parent file folder with sub folders of different categories and mix together apps documents photos, and notes neatly filed away within the file cabinet (s)..
also would like apple to improve the camera ie: 12mp and add more cool features to the camera app and apply filters and effects
also add more to the home and lock screen of weather, news, stocks at a glance as well as show if you have new mail, texts and reminders and please hope they finally put push email in the mail app

On Software Review: Nik Snapseed for Desktop article (39 comments in total)
In reply to:

Activatedfx: I like Snapseed, but the biggest Con for me is that there is no way to save custom "presets". Every photo has to be processed from scratch.

which snapseed app are you referring to? the desktop app or the iphone app?

on the iphone app it doesn't have the custom presets nor the ability to undo but the desktop app does have these features

On Canon EOS-1D X overview article (365 comments in total)

you're not alone awaiting the big review for the Canon 1Dx... even the Nikon D4 has been on hold far too long too grrrr many of the newest cams that just came out all getting their reviews sooner.. Seems to me the DPR reps rather play with the little toys leaving the big guns dusting on the shelves :-( Wish Mark Harmon of NCIS would go over there and tell them to quit screwin around and give them a smack upside their heads ;-)

In reply to:

Francis Carver: Boy, oh boy, is the DP REVIEW web site seriously messed-up now, or what?

Man, I am writing a comment, almost done and ready to post it, then BANG -- damned page freshens up all but itself, and everything I wrote is lost.

Gee-sus, DP REVIEW, when you refresh your pages, how about having some warning or auto-save feature in force for those who happen to be writing comments?

Its not dPreview that's causing the page refreshes, its your browser..

Type "turn off automatic page refresh (enter your browser name + your computer name ie: Mac or PC)" in Google search for instructions

Good Luck.

In reply to:

and all that jazz: has the D600 been designed to show, as an option, live histogram in live view ?

you're not alone in wanting the long awaited live histogram on lower end models but sadly Nikon refuses to listen :(

how can he keep calling the autofocus screw on the mount easy to miss? I can clearly see it as clear as day on all cameras that have this feature lol
