On Nikon D750 First-impressions review preview (1434 comments in total)
In reply to:

Gabbymonster: FINALLY got my D750 to replace my D90 !

Waited for quite awhile for Nikon to come out with a full frame with wireless and able to have the remote control trigger as well (absent on the D800) and 51 point focus system.
Its taken Nikon a pretty very incredibly long time to reach this point !

My qualms with the D750 are :

1) the wifi feature, and securing it is even tougher than what I anticipated after reading the posts from before (I am a admin on my office network!!).

a) The andriod app is grossly rudimentary and flawed and unstable.

b) Photoes uploaded are from SD slot 1 only (hint RAW) and uploaded to your
phone's built in memory only (hint RAW). Good luck trying to upload more than 20 raw photoes and crash your build in storage memory.

c) And try emailing out any of the raw from the phone (size exceeded).

d) You are unable to wifi to a notebook where space is not a constraint and you have a full screen to work on the picts !

---> PART 2 in next post

I love how you give the D750 a glowing praise then slam it down in the same post.

Wubslin: Articulated LCD panel on a 'serious' camera body?

Someone stick a fork in Nikon, they're done.

I welcome the articulated LCD. Very handy for street/travel photography when you want to capture images in unorthodox angles.

Just because it's useless to you, doesn't mean it's useless.

Just like Madonna, it's not the skill but the marketing that brings in the money. It is, after all, a business.

The power of suggestion is the biggest scam in history. If you play it well, it pays you well.

Well-played, Peter Lik...

Screw video. You want to capture movies, get a camcorder.

In reply to:

keeponkeepingon: Why isn't the ricoh GR in this roundup?

It seems like a really poor choice to leave a dpreview GOLD award winning high end pocket camera out of the "High End Pocketable" roundup.

Even if you plan on putting it in a "Big sensor Roundup" (or whatever) it still belongs here also as folks looking for a pocketable camera won't necessarily go looking for it among huge clunkers such as the LX100 in your big sensor roundup.

Sarcasm. Look it up.

Ricoh didn't have enough money to bribe the reviewers.

HeyItsJoel: Yeah, but how much?!

At that price, it's gonna give Olympus EM-1 a run for its money.

On Canon PowerShot G7 X Review preview (412 comments in total)
In reply to:

HeyItsJoel: Hmmm. Thanks to that comparison chart, I think I'll go with the G1X II. Compared to the G7X, it has a larger sensor, further reach, lower ISO and a hotshoe.

@Richard Butler - Thanks for your input. It does help with my consideration between the two cameras. The hotshoe, however, remains a selling point for me.

In reply to:

nerd2: I've been using 'crop' bodies for almost a decade, but still I hate olympus and its delusional marketing strategy which plagues many people.

To be equivalent to FF counterparts, smaller format body/lens should be:

a) FASTER to achieve the same total light and same DOF.
b) SHARPER to achieve the same sharpness.
c) has the similar MP count.

For example, to compete with A7 plus 24-70 f4 lens, one needs a 24MP m43 body and 12-35 f2 lens that is TWICE sharper than 24-70 f4. Of course most lenses (even $100 kit lenses) are now very good and can be used for professional purpose, but that does not justify Oly to charge the same money for inferior lenses.

It's like buying a rental car after everyone's had their turn abusing it. No thanks.

HeyItsJoel: G7X > GX7.

And while we're at it, E=MC2.

"By caver3d: You are clearly no physicist, nor a photographer.
The larger sensor GX7 >>> G7X"

And clearly you have no sense of humor. If I met you in person, I'd give you a dollar so you can buy one.

In reply to:

Suhas Sudhakar Kulkarni: When I read the name "G7X" I wondered why canon is messing up their naming with Panasonic (they have GX7)
But then, Canon powershot started using "G" before panasonic Lumix G. So Panasonic must use something else. Otherwise it's confusing!

It's not any different between Nikon D70 vs Canon 70D? D60 vs 60D?
