Well done, Olympus, now can we have 25p/50p for us in PAL country ? 30p videos look very weird on a 50HZ TV

mick232: Full-frame has reached the consumer market. If there was still any doubt about that, here's the proof.

In film days, even cheap plastic disposable cameras were full frame.

d3xmeister: They made something wonderful and they screwed it up with the stupid dial locks. What kind of an idiot bump a dial out of position and does not notice when the dial is right in its face ? The kind of idiot who has no ideea what is doing, but somehow these idiots have managed to screw things for all of us.

Here's an ideea: Turn off your camera while it is in a bag !!!! Here's another one: Glimpse at your setting before you shoot !!! Here's yet another one: Don't buy a camera with a faulty dial !!! Or take it back if it's loose ! I never ever accidentally bumped a dial and I owned and used a LOT of cameras.

I love that Fuji, Pentax, Olympus and Panasonic are teaching Nikon and Canon how to design cameras. But Fuji really is on top of the game.

I'm romanian. The images are very nice, and I don't find them offensive. That said, nowadays you really have to travel a lot and look hard to find such things. These picture kinnda illustrate romania between 1992-1997.

And this will be the official death of most APS-C dslrs. Unless Nikon and Canon decide to learn from Pentax and really support their apsc cameras with lenses, features an ergonomics at pro levels they are doomed much quicker than we thought.

vFunct: Nikon makes the best cameras - better than Canon.

Nothing else is even in the same league.

Whenever I go to a press event, all the professional photographers are using Nikon or Canon.

There is absolutely nothing else.

Mirrorless cameras are garbage, strictly used by amateurs that do not know professional photography.

This new Nikon is just icing on their top-shelf cake.

Are you on this planet ?

In reply to:

HeyItsJoel: I'll never understand why Nikon insist on starting their kit lenses at 18mm when the ideal length to start is @ 16mm (~24mm fov).

I prefer 28mm to 24mm, maybe because that's what I had in the film days. Had a few 24mm but still fell mor confortable with 28mm

Not really impressed. I have cheap DX lenses with better CA performance, and my D5100 is almost matching this camera's high iso performance. When I'll see clean ISO 6400 I'll be impressed.

On 5 Reasons why I haven't used my DSLR for months article (590 comments in total)
In reply to:

cheddargav: When I can trust a small camera like this in 99.9% of situations I'll be all over it. Until then they will continue to be great for family days out and street mooching, plus as a 3rd camera at events. DSLR's are better in most situations tho.
When will the "5 reasons are shoot mostly with DSLR's" article be written? :0)

Wow, DSLR's are better ? Really ? But I don't see anybody arguing that DSLR aren't better. Sure they are. That's not the point, in any way.
What format do you use for listening music ? Let me guess, .mp3 like 95% of people ? I use only 24 bit .wav and only listen on Apogee converters, because, you know, it is better than .mp3 and onboard sound.

See the point now ? We have reached a point where a small non-DSLR camera is more than enough for anybody (except professionals and serious hobbyists)

In reply to:

G Davidson: So this kind of card could be the fix for cameras with a fast shooting speed, but too small a cache memory? (I'm thinking of the D7100 here).

Could be. I remember one user tested the D7100 without an SD card in it and it just burst away at 6 fps forever.

In reply to:

itsastickup: For photographers, the crucial Dxo report will be in to the HTC One and its APS-C photosites and dynamic range. Until that comes no decision on a smartphone is really possible.

That's, right, you can put full frame pixels in a 2MP camera phone, the image will be camera phone quality, maybe even worse.
Sensor size is what matter, to put it simply to you: What amount of light is used to produce the photo ? If you take a half sensor for example, it will capture about half of the amount of light. You can make it 1MP, it will actually make the photo worse, since resolution does matter when it comes to image quality, and the amount of light captured will still be half.

I use Aperture. But more importantly, Chase Jarvis, David Bergman and other succesful photographers use Aperture.

From a detail and noise reduction standpoint Aperture cannot compete with Lighroom. What I like about Aperture is that RAW conversion are A LOT closer that what I want them to be, so my work on them is about 20% than in Lighroom. More time to shoot or spend with the family.

On Fujifilm X100S preview (218 comments in total)
In reply to:

rhlpetrus: X100s: I don't like the RAWs' look, sorry, still not like a standard Bayer system. D7100 now is the best under FF camera re IQ. Let's wait for the Nikon A.

As much as I like the X100/s concept, I have to agree. I've been studied like crazy samples and stuff for my next upgrade, and I also been blown away by what the D7100 can produce. I would rate it as the best DX camera, and not only IQ wise.
But the truth is the X100s and D7100 are not really competing.

On Just Posted: Nikon D7100 In-depth Review news story (394 comments in total)
In reply to:

dennishancock: I have recently migrated to the D7100 from the D90 and it's proving a quantum jump in image quality, noise, color rendition, focus response, and features.

What condemns the D7100 to the insanely good category as opposed to the insanely great in my mind is the issue heavily discussed here--the image buffer. I'm not a sports oriented photographer and I'm OK with jpegs, but the thought that skimping on two dollars worth of memory is Nikon technical management's idea of the pursuit of technical excellence is astounding.

I'm getting a burst of 18 jpegs before the frame rate drops by approximately two-thirds. ( DX mode, optimal compression quality, fine image quality, large image size.)

Considering this camera is otherwise a technical tour de force, it appears Nikon technical management wasn't thinking. Marketing should be asking how many sales of the D7100 it will be losing because of this gaffe. Heads should roll. I know they would in America.

P.S. Great review, DpReview!

Actually that's a marketing decision, not a technical one. Cutting costs is not the reason either with memory chips today. This tell me they still want to sell their D300s stock and release a faster tougher pro DX soon.

In reply to:

d3xmeister: I was a little skeptical about this sensor, because I saw serious banding in some samples, from different people. Also in the D5200 RAW files. But what dpreview tested show no banding even when pushed like crazy even at high ISO's.

So I have to admit the IQ is top notch from this camera, king of crop cameras no doubt.

I don't find the buffer a limitation as long as the camera does not lock up after a burst. If it does lock up, for me it's just useless, anybody tested this ? Can I take a picture imediately after a burst while the buffers empties to the card ?

OK I was worried. Man it does look like this will be my D5100 upgrade.
