  • I bought an EOS M. Gave it a thorough workout, but eventually sold it on. The IQ wasn't good enough, not nearly. The Leica T is in a different ball park to the M; the images look sharp and the...

  • If you need speed, fine, this camera probably isn't for you. The only time I need speed is when light is changing fast over a landscape. But if I miss the moment I just hang around until it changes...

  • OK, you go out and snap away with the T just as you might with say a Sony CSC, and it's not the same. DPReview didn't like the Nikon Df either, for much the same reasons. I have the Df. It's a...

  • Some nice samples, in others the colours look fairly flat. Which brings me to a general point about reviews (not just DPreview). It's rarely stated what picture controls (colour model, etc) are...

  • Hi Jez You've bought a class camera. If you like using it then that is enough; it's as easy to learn on as any other camera, and probably better than a lot. In fact, any Nikon dSLR is a good camera ...
  • Commented on Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview

    But ... in the real world it DOES compete with the likes of Olympus Stylus 1. And indeed various APS-C and M4/3 DSLR and CSC cameras. The bottom line is that it's a brute of a camera in terms of...

  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    I'd miss not having a viewfinder as well. Maybe Nikon sees this as having it both ways; you can leave off the viewfinder when you want something smaller (if you are happy with using the rear...

    Price? People said that about the Df. The Df is selling. Enough people will pay a premium price if the product is good enough; i.e. if they're convinced they're getting quality and the performance...

  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    What will make or break this camera is the pic quality. Period. And as yet nobody knows what that is. 1" isn't a tiny sensor; a "premium" compact would be considered brilliant with this sized...

  • Commented on Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article

    Zanton - have you ever seen the output from a bridge camera? Tolerable because of what it gives you in terms of reach. Quality zilch.

  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    I'm fascinated by the number of comments about small chip, etc, when there hasn't been a single test, let alone a comprehensive review, performed with the camera. Are people only interested in...

  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    To state the obvious, Nikon 1 is different. Strikingly so. If you're interested in the stand-out features of the V3, then there's no other game in town. It is also a capable, flexible and...

  • Commented on Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article

    Tried the EOS-M and rapidly ditched it. Even my aging M4/3 G1 is a better camera.

    The sensor in V3 may only be 1" but it's a rather special sensor. It'll appeal to some. Be interested to see how...

  • Depends what you want out of the camera. If you're someone who raves about bokeh and wants DOF as shallow as you want, then go FF and use fast primes. If you're someone who's looking for great...

  • DSLRs, like SLRs, are for people who take photographs, rather than gear junkies...

  • Commented on Sony Alpha 7R Review preview

    Err... how many Canon and Nikon pro users have switched then?

    I can see quite a few committed FF users, pro or otherwise, adding this to their kit as it gives something different, weight and size...

  • Commented on Sony Alpha 7R Review preview

    Sony deserves credit for producing an innovative camera which is capable, under the right circumstances, of producing excellent pics, and all in a light and compact body, for a full frame camera....

  • Canon have made the same mistake as Nikon, dropping the viewfinder, as Nikon did in the P7700 before bringing it back as as EVF in the P7800. Too much of the potential market for this sort of...
