  • Can't find a proper review which describes consistent underexposure. There are some threads around claiming odd exposure but then you wonder what the people are doing with the camera. Anyway, if ...
  • I've used the Mk 2 AF version of the 35-70 which works OK. Maybe not the sharpest, but on film SLRs it gave pleasing results, and as a compact light moderate range zoom for the DF it will do. It ...
  • Think Richard's right on this one. Full-frame, like medium format, gives you something different, in some but not all senses something better. Keeping in the back of your mind the idea that you may...

  • Commented on Nikon D750 Review preview

    Why not? One trip shooting what's on offer = one photoshoot.

    The point being, obviously, the shots are limited to what's available around that location.

  • The grip's fine for shooting. I like the way the Df handles a lot. If you spend long hours reeling off shot after shot you might want a different sort of grip, but the Df isn't really that sort of ...
  • Commented on Nikon D750 Review preview

    I think the shots were all, or nearly all, done on one photoshoot, and cover a very limited range. I'd have preferred shots taken over a much wider range of subjects and conditions. It's difficult...

  • Dust on the sensor is a minor hazard of DSLRs. If you change lenses a lot then you're more likely to get it. Unless it bothers you at the apertures you're likely you use, I'd suggest just ...
  • I'm interested in knowing whether or not D-lux jpeg colour is the same as LX100 jpeg colour. Did you try different colour profiles? I tend to use Natural rather than Standard on Panny cameras, ...
  • I'd be very surprised if Nikon isn't planning a replacement; there's no sign that they're intending to abandon that market. Question is, what features might they choose to add to the next model to ...
  • Replied in Coolpix 800
    Bought January 2000. Only 2Mb, mostly automatic, but an excellent job. I think the colours are better than any digicam I've used since. I still look at some of the pics with awe. I've just shoved ...
  • Fair enough review as far as it goes. A couple of thoughts:

    1) Re the LX100, the Leica D-lux Type 109 isn't much more and you get extras for the extra cost. If, as now seems to be the case, the...

  • The D3300 is indeed a great package. But it shouldn't be too hard to convince yourself that you need both ...

  • Leica obviously do have the resources, whether in-house or not, to develop their own software for their own cameras, such as the M series. The output has a particular Leica look. In the case of ...
  • Thanks a lot. That gives a very good idea of what this camera will produce.
  • That information about the JPEG processing is the sort of thing I'm looking for. Can you confirm that Leica have indeed used their own JPEG processing rather than the Panny's?
  • Impressive. I'm more interested in the two outside shots than the interior ones. The tones seem spot on, and just the right degree of sharpening. Did you alter any of the parameters relating to ...
  • I've a D3100, and for stills you have a point. However, the question for me is not so much size as weight. I want a quality camera which I can stick in a rucksack pocket for longer walks and...

  • Interesting review. Looking at the color examples, great color. What I couldn't find is any indication of the background to the examples, eg out-of-camera jpgs, raw with a deal of extra ...
  • Excellent review. It seems the jpeg processing could be improved a tad. I'm wondering how it would compare with the Leica D-Lux (Type 109). Do you intend to do a review of that camera?

  • They look different to me. Possibly the Pany is using higher contrast, but the Leica looks a better balanced pic to me, and the smaller writing on the bottles looks clearer. Maybe it is just the ...
