HeyItsJoel: Amazon is working for the NSA. Don't do it.

Seriously though, how hard is it to keep your stuff in an external hard drive and lock it up somewhere?

As far as I'm concerned, the NSA can have all my sexting and all the dirty talk I've had with my girlfriend all they want...

BUT YOU WILL NOT STEAL MY PHOTOS, DAMMIT!!! That's just wrong.

On Nikon D5500 Review preview (363 comments in total)

The new grip on this camera alone justifies the upgrade in my opinion.

I was considering the D5300 and even the D5200's still lying around just to save a little coin. But no, once I held the D5500 in my hand, the decision was made instantly.

And they called Generation X the "me" generation.

Well, whatever cake we were eating, the Millenials just RAN with it and stuck it at the end of a selfie stick.

In reply to:

UnitedNations: What will they bring for the 4th generation X100?

Not happening. Fuji had a chance to go FF in the S1,S2,S3,S5 series but didn't. And if they couldn't do it in their DSLR's, what are the chances for their compacts? None.

21st century cowboys now holster DSLR's to shoot with instead of guns.

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview (829 comments in total)
In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: I have one simple question. Why did the Canon 70D receive a MUCH higher score(83 vs. 81) and the Gold award? What does the 70D do that the E-M5 MK II doesn’t?

If I picked up the 70D right now and shot it side by side with the E-M5 MK II what would the 70D be that much better for? Both cameras are still at a similar price point today and they are in the same category. So what makes the 70D so much better?

Is the issue that the 70D was rated against the competition of 2 years ago and the E-M5 MK II is rated against the competition of today? Shouldn't the ratings value always increase if the cameras are always getting better? Why are cameras like the A6000 and the E-M5 MK II rated lower than the 70D?

I still cannot fathom why I should choose a Canon 70D over an Olympus E-M5 MK II. If I purchased solely based on your conclusions and ratings then I could see no other option. Thankfully, I didn't wait for the review and bought the E-M5 MK II sight unseen. I don't regret it that one bit.

That is the downside of a subjective evaluation. No matter how much someone tries to be objective about their scoring, it really boils down to just one person's opinion over another.

Digitall: "Made in Korea" North or South?

The only exports N. Korea has are ballistic missiles with a nuclear warhead attached. And those are delivered directly to you.

57even: Interesting. There is an implication that Canon listen to their channels and their pros, but don't have a direct interaction with normal consumers. They leave that to the channels. They in turn listen to their pros and the big-box dealers. Nowhere in this loop is anyone listening to consumers.

They're implementing the "Trickle-down" theory.

allkar: "There's nothing in particular that we learned from Nikon or Sony ..."
This is really sad.
What a pity!

He's lying. Truth is, he just doesn't want to acknowledge his competition. They learned something.

If it's done right, it should have the ability to tilt upwards so it can bounce flash off the ceiling!

On World Press Photo revokes prize from Giovanni Troilo article (100 comments in total)
In reply to:

quiquae: Can someone enlighten me as to why the photo shown in the article was chosen as a winner in the first place? It looks totally uninspiring except for the rather obviously enhanced sky color, which could just as well be atmospheric reflections from neon signs. Second and third place entries look much better.

Simple. It's like the Oscars. The committee picks the most boring, dull movie they can find that appeals only to old, over-emotional people (who happens to be running the committee) and give it the Best Picture of the Year award. Who cares what the viewers think.

Sucks to be the previous second prize winner (now the first). All of his thunder was taken away.

In reply to:

HeyItsJoel: Are there people who still shoot at 28mm? Maybe it's just me but I prefer to choose between a 24mm and 35mm in that focal range.

When I shot Nikon, I hated that the lenses would start at '18 - XX mm' which translate to '27 - XX mm' in full frame equivalent. It just wasn't wide enough for me.

Are there original people with original thoughts left in DPReview? Cause I don't see any of them replying in this thread.

Even the Nikon P7800 has an articulating screen for crying out loud!
