Who cares? These and other cameras can shoot a decent pic at quite high ISOs. Do you think you folks could focus on something important for a change? Perhaps photography, for instance.

In reply to:

Zvonimir Tosic: What is the point of these random snapshots done with random lenses?
There are already hundreds of superb photographs taken by renowned photographers with this camera that are nothing short of amazing.

I believe people buying cameras such as K-3 et al aren't really interested in snapshots; such galleries are maybe good for pocket compacts, but for top of the line weatherproof DSLRs with 8.3 fps, 24MPs, selectable AA, etc ..?

C'mon. Times change, people's habits change, but DPR's habits never, it seems. Good old 2004 is still on around here.

I agree. They just do it to give the impression they're providing something of value. And for SEO, of course.

On Hands-on with the retro Nikon Df article (230 comments in total)

Seems to me Pentax offered a kit with a 35mm lens (K30?), which is essentially a 50mm view. So, it hasn't been *that* long since someone has offered a standard FL lens in a kit.
And Pentax has always had full compatibility with its old lenses. Everyone's making it sound like this is a new concept.

On Nikon Df combines classic design with modern technology article (313 comments in total)

While I'm undecided on the styling, the function is what matters most to me. I'm curious to see what others have to say about how this camera works in the real world.
However, once again, Nikon has shown its greedy colors. I was excited about this camera, but the price tag is ridiculous, even with the sooper-dooper sensor. Until the price becomes reasonable (<$2000), I'll stick with my other full frame Nikon, the F100.

I love the idea of this camera and would buy it in a second if the price wasn't so astronomically out of line.

tommy leong: are you able with a quick glance
tell from this Corporate release
how this camera is different from its siblings ???

What art of communication is this...

Different sensor...this camera doesn't have the X-trans type of sensor its siblings have. It has the Bayer type of sensor found in most digital cameras.

ManuelVilardeMacedo: Well, well... not bad for a dead medium!

Seriously, I chanced to try an FP4 125 Plus roll during the past two weeks. After seeing the results I must say I'm impressed with the sharpness and contrast this film is capable of. Grain is not as smooth as Kodak's T-Max, but somehow it adds expression to the pictures.

"dead medium"?
They're opening a lab because the demand is there. Sounds to me like the medium is quite alive.

NickR: $16 a roll?
150 rolls or a $2400 DSLR, which would you rather have?

The film, absolutely!

I'd like to see a 135mm prime. Or at least a 100mm.

On Fujifilm introduces XF 27mm F2.8 'pancake' lens article (88 comments in total)

Been waiting for the 40mm to come out. Waiting to see some samples, but now very tempted to invest in Fuji. Also like to see something in the 150mm to 200mm equivalent range.

Another reason I need to go Gimp.

On Just posted: Pentax MX-1 Preview Samples article (55 comments in total)
In reply to:

Zvonimir Tosic: We all tend to judge cameras by its peers. If the newcomer is somewhat different, we tend to nag about it. However, my experience with the MX-1 was revealing insofar. MX-1 has something cameras in its class have missed for a long time (maybe never had): a great shooting balance. Which I think is due to its retro inspired design, materials and — proportions.
Having it tried side by side with Leica X2 and RX100, I felt both X2 and MX-1 simply cling to your hands. You're not tired of them. RX100 is slippery, like a soap, can't really use with one hand. MX-1 you can operate with one hand, and won't lose balance. It stands firm. It's not heavy as they describe it, but the feeling is that of stability, quality and comfort. Not lens heavy like many P&S cameras, even with the lens fully extended.
Anyway, I suggest anyone to go and try, and never ever judge a camera based on paper specs alone; you'll be sacrificing something specs cannot tell.

I prefer my photos sharp and thus always shoot with two hands.

If it had a 40mm lens, I'd snap it up in a second!

Toss up between X-Pro1 and K-5 IIs, but since only of those is listed...

On Time magazine showcases Top 10 photos of 2012 article (147 comments in total)

Is it 2013 already? And here I thought we had a couple more weeks left in 2012. I guess any photos shot from December 13 to 31 are deemed unworthy. We might as well put our cameras away until January 1...TIME has spoken.

Maybe I WON'T invest in more Nik software, after all...

Specs don't mean much. I'll never buy a camera with the Sony name on it. Can't do much about the sensor, though...

In reply to:

tonyheps: What kind of enthusiast that will buy a compact camera without a viewfinder - NOT ME!!

The OVF on the P7100 was useless, so no loss. Viewfinders are nice, but a true photographer is not hindered by such "limitations."

Thinking about getting back into Pentax now. Video shortcomings don't affect me. Curious to see the K-5 replacement model before I buy.
