On Nikon D5300 preview (278 comments in total)
In reply to:

aandegoons: Nice.

Is there any other new camera with the versatility at this price range that will out perform the d5300?

Seems to me to be the best bang for the buck no mater what the format.

Maybe the Sony A65

This is either a lack-luster product replacement/upgrade (actually an indication that you have something pretty good already), or an interesting upgrade in terms of GPS and WiFi at a pretty good price. What all this negativity is about is beyond me!!

Yea.....I can't afford the camera, but, maybe if I save up, the shoes....

As others have noted....photography has little to do with the equipment. Very nice photos from a camera that would be laughed at today...

............and the camera in your hand is the one that gets the shot. Something that slips into your pocket is more likely to end up in your hand.

You have to admit it is sort of funny to see an article about 'satisfiers' and 'maximizers' from someone who has a need to use a Leica film camera to grab random shots on the street on a website that is 'maximizer' heaven.

In reply to:

rallyfan: Two options. A street photographer is

(A) a pretentious tourist
(B) really creepy

They're not mutually exclusive. For shame. Get help.

A really interesting point you bring up!! I find interesting street pictures everywhere I go (internationally, I might add :-) but it feels very intrusive to actually photograph them, so I don't. There is this part of me that is thinking of buying a very small camera that might be less intrusive....

On Hasselblad responds to Lunar criticisms article (628 comments in total)

Most maufacturers appear to be a little lost at the moment.

Technology is set to sweep their feature sets away leaving a world where the sensors are better than the lenses and most everything you really need can be had for a few hundred bucks, probably at Walmart. Good news for customers, bad news for formerly premium manufacturers like Hasselblad.

Sony seems to be the on-going winner having a firm grasp on the technology and the consumer marketing headspace.

Good News: They are updating a 3 year old camera
Bad News: They are increasingly treading water whilst Sony, in particular, forges ahead.

A great idea in theory, but it comes off more like marketing video than a test report. At that rate, maybe you should be using the manufacturer's video
