ttran88: Just a quick observation of some GOLD awarded cameras in 2014:
Sony A7R-- 82%. GOLDFujifilm XT-1 84% GOLDOlympus E-M10 80% GOLDPentax K-3 83% GOLDPanasonic GH4 84% GOLDNikon D750 90% GOLD
Canon where are you???
who cares bout what you think of Canon, its clear you are partial to Nikon and it ok, but dont come here trying to brainwash people with your product!
mpgxsvcd: Samsung has the exact opposite strategy as Canon. Samsung knows that if they build a quality product with lots of features their customers will still be willing to spend the same amount of money and not ask for rock bottom prices.
They also know that if they are not leading the industry then there will be no catching up. It is lead or simply get out of the way and die by the roadside.
Canon on the other hand believes that its customers are for life. They believe that as long as they don’t change things too much their customers won’t want to change too much. Canon’s market share will be drastically reduced by the end of this year thanks to innovations by Sony, Olympus, Samsung, Panasonic, and even Nikon.
@mpgxsvcdWhy all this post against Canon?What do you know bout things and how they happened?You just tell whatever you feel whiteout any knowledge of market and tendencies!It applies to Nikon as well and any dslr format.I dont buy a camera for what it weights, but for what it gives me as a result.Canon as other big brands such as Leica were so big that for sure it will not stay at their peak forever....does'nt take a 100 watt to know that!Everything is "a la mode" people are really drawn towards easyness. If its easy, if its cheap if its a la mode if its beautiful,,,,the list goes on and on.Why not accept a product as it is, and stop comparing with the brand you own.Camera are tools, if you dont like a certain tool move on, dont bash a brand for what its not......cause you will bash Nikon and other brand as well!
Segaman: many snobs here are outrageg about the number of Apple pics compared to their camera.Its only a number.Gee.....does'nt take too much to tickle the nikon out of some people!!!!
Agree to your point of view.Photography is art, and ART usually don't make money at all.So people stop taking your camera as a religion, its so futile!
many snobs here are outrageg about the number of Apple pics compared to their camera.Its only a number.Gee.....does'nt take too much to tickle the nikon out of some people!!!!
larrytusaz: McDonald's sells more hamburgers than the local place which makes fresh hamburgers, but that hardly means that McDonald's hamburgers are better. It just means some people are either lazy, in a hurry, or have no taste.
what I have seen so far from Apple are superb picture from the Iphone 6, give them a few generation and they will be the leader in IQ.that will nail Canon and Nikon for sure!!!!!!take my words,
@ ahmamithere is multiple way of doing it, it can be dropped, with the number facing the camera, you managed to take the focus distance before....and let the ball go from someones hand, and shoot as many pics as you can, retry if necessary!The person can just pose for the pics....so this is the way I would have done it, or really tracking the ball in focus tracking!!!!!!
Dan Bracaglia: The lens and sensor in the X100T and X100S are the same. Functionally, they are different. The X100T offers a slightly more refined shooting experience, in some aspects, to the X100S. This obviously can not be demonstrated in a sample gallery.
The main purpose of this gallery is to demonstrate the Classic Chrome film simulation, and how it compares to some of the other simulation modes offered. This is something we have not had the chance to do before with a non-beta model.
Any review of the X100T in a near future?
Segaman: Great artistic sense!
Yes Tony you have the eye for creating, a picture is more than just a shot in time, it represent some action, some feel,something.A static photo is cool, but never near a creative one, like a film, it moves you or don't.Its all about being creative.For artist its a must, for most people that have other ways I guess of dealing with art.Keep the good work!
Great artistic sense!
Thanks, the same to you!
Segaman: So NIKON as their 90% rating......It must feel really good to Nikon FANS...they got a rating they wanted.NOW GO OUT AND SHOOT AND LEAVE THE CANON FORUM AND BASHING FOR A WHILE....
SONYAL and the whole team put a big effort in doing this review.Now how about a PLATINUM award!!!!
I like the atari comments, it adds a little humor to this forum
Ramjager: The 5Dmk3 AF system is "behind the times"!Talk about garbage hyperbole writing.41 cross sensors? Seriously.Maybe rather than writing hyperbole the author should spend some time taking photos that require AF rather than making up utter garbage on a keyboard.The 1DX focus module is still THE BEST action AF system period and the 5Dmk3 uses that very system.Typical of DPR these days authors with little if any knowledge of the subjects they discuss is a normWakey wakey DPR stop writing hyperbole based off zero experience.Given how dated the Canon AF module is 90% of the worlds sports photogs should be upgrading from there 1Dx's that dominate sidelines because it's AF is behind the times!Yea right.
4 g with a great grip and no flipscreen please
RomanP: I don't get what the big deal is here, for the price:- same body as 610 (except tilt screen)- same toy-like 4way selector...really inferior to the 810's and 5D's.- same sensor- same 6fps. Wait, that's now 6.5fps. - same buffer! Really, they couldn't double the RAM?
Is it worth an $800 difference between the two models? Yes, better autofocus system, but IQ will be very close, and you won't get more shots at an event than with a D610. It's like Nikon is crippling this model only to queue up a truly high speed 760s next year.
Just see the D750's buffer in glorious action here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1wXGdaNvko
Is it me or the 6D looks better in jpegs at iso 6400.On my ipad air 2
My keyboard is in french and it has the speloing on auto so...
Agree Roman we dont need all these extras....
Rick_Hunter: This is a gearheads gathering place. You can put out any, really, any camera you want, but if it doesn't have at least a GAZILLION megapixels, and UMPTEENTH stops of DR, and a FEMTOsecond top shutter speed, etc, people here will always complain because they can't possibly take proper images of their cat, or of their lensalign ruler. Infact, how could they live with such an inferior camera? Bottom line, most gearheads here wil ALWAYS see only the empty part of the glass, even when the glass is >90% full.Just give up already...
What surprise me is looking at great pictures from all over the web, many many great cameras had taken millions of great shots and were made 6 years ago, we dont need all these mpx, we need to learn to shoot and learn more bout light, we all know this, but still people get succered intobuying the new advanced cameras.Just google older pics and the magic will appear,
oups.....I gotta learn to spell, english is not my primary language.And yes I respect most people!
So NIKON as their 90% rating......It must feel really good to Nikon FANS...they got a rating they wanted.NOW GO OUT AND SHOOT AND LEAVE THE CANON FORUM AND BASHING FOR A WHILE....
NJOceanView: The incredible D7000 is available for $489.00 at Amazon for those interested. I figure I can sell my 7D2 used (~4,000 actuations) for $1,467.00 and buy three D7000s. But now I see the D7000, too, only got a Silver Award just as the 7D2 did, and more surprisingly received a score of just 80%, even lower than my ever-so-imperfect 7D2. I'm so tied up in knots, I just don't know what to do.
when confused over a camera, go seek help like a doctor or psy
