On Bang for the Buck: Olympus OM-D E-M10 II Review article (577 comments in total)
In reply to:

D200_4me: I just wish m4/3 as well as Fuji would get off the recycling the same old sensors game. We don't need a brand new sensor every year, but every two or three years would be a nice time-frame for improving the sensor specs (better high ISO and dynamic range is all that I'd care about...I'm happy with anything between 16 and 24MP..

Yes I agree. I'm just saying...companies like Sony and Nikon in particular are more quick to bring in new sensors. But of course, Nikon is probably just getting them from Sony. So maybe we're really just talking about Sony bringing out new sensors pretty often. Anyway, it's not as if the existing sensors are bad because they're not at all bad.

On The travel photography of HDR guru Trey Ratcliff article (233 comments in total)

As soon as I saw the name of the photographer, I knew tons of negative comments were surely on their way. ;-) It seems people love to hate him just about as much as Ken Rockwell

On Shooting with the Canon PowerShot G3 X article (316 comments in total)

Sort of a hard sell if you look at it closely. You could get a m4/3 interchangeable lens camera with a kit lens in that price range or less ($650 for GX7 with kit lens), depending on what you want. Then you'd have a much more versatile camera (because of the lens options) and of course better image quality.

Well, given the crowd here on dpreview, the comments I'm seeing are as expected. Nothing out of the ordinary. No need to fret about the comments, folks. It is what it is.

D200_4me: Watch out Smugmug. I may have to have a look at this...

It would take a lot to leave Smug. I've been there a long time and spent a lot of time uploading and I'm familiar with the site. Likely, I won't leave...but competition is good because it forces SM to keep updating and keep prices more reasonable.

Install the updates and enjoy. No need to get too wrapped up in all the whining or fussing from others who say this should have been in the camera from the start. I wouldn't get too worked up over things people you will never meet say on the internet ;-) Anyway, continuing to say this and that should have been in the camera from the start almost insinuates that those who bought the camera are too dumb/gullible to notice that certain functions are not already in the camera. I think it's more likely that people looked at the X-T1 and liked it for what it was and bought it anyway. If that's the case, then yes...these continued major feature/function updates please the owners very much because it's just a bonus. I've owned and loved (and still do) Nikon cameras, but Nikon doesn't go out of their way to improve already released cameras. They usually only make firmware available to correct errors.

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

D200_4me: Honestly, the only thing these little V and J 1 series camera have against them is lesser high ISO quality and (if it matters to you), very deep depth of field. I really enjoyed the two I had, but in the end it was hard to justify keeping them due to the availability of other small cameras with much larger sensors (like the a6000). I loved the size, the lens quality, the VR of the lenses and the simple and great videos they can make.

I have an a6000 now as my small camera, which (for my purposes) is even a step above even the Panasonic models you mentioned. I hardly ever use it, but when I do need it, I know I can have excellent image quality as well as keeping the size/weight down to even m4/3 levels (with the 16-50 kit lens)

I'd rather not have my bones or my family's bones decorate someone's walls or made into a coat of arms. Just put me in the ground when I'm expired and be done with it.

On Fujifilm X-T10 First Impressions Review preview (544 comments in total)

I'd still like to hear an official explanation as to why you can only shoot raw up to ISO 6400 and not the expanded ISO ranges. All other manufacturers allow you to shoot raw in the expanded ranges (at least, Nikon has always done so). Maybe there's some technical reason for it, but I've never heard an explanation about that yet. This is not a complaint of mine, it's just a question I've always had that I've never seen an answer to.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 offers 4K video article (128 comments in total)
In reply to:

D200_4me: Cool, Panasonic makes an Olympus E-M1 now. Oh, wait....it only looks like the E-M1. Never mind :-)

It's the overall shape and angles that remind me of the E-M1...as well as that angled/beveled front control dial. Looks fine to me, but I just thought it was interesting how much it looks like an E-M1 if you don't look very closely to notice the differences

I'll be looking forward to this update before my vacation in July (in case Half Dome starts moving around on me ;-) ). I'll be curious to see how well the tracking performs compared to the Sony a6000 which I also have. Thanks Fuji for continuous improvement and making this type of update available for free to all existing X-T1's.

Fine with me. They make great sensors.

That's a clever idea.

Boy...they sure do hide the regular desktop version.
