just a tighter crop and 2 mm farther focus would have made this 1 place

On Nikon D7200 Review preview (559 comments in total)
In reply to:

jaykumarr: In very lowlight, in sequoia tree national park, the Nikon D5100s AF struggled for long time and failed to focus. My friend tried with the same D5100, but same result. My Panasonic FZ-150 focussed precisely after 2-3 seconds. I was very surprised how Nikon AF totally failed.

Now I see repeated praise 'focuses well in -3 low light'. Why there was no previous mention about the average performance before?

@Kim jakobsen,
A DSLR not focussing was totally a surprise to me and my friend found it was my fault and teased me before he tried.

Now you gave explanation that it was normal. I did not know it was normal for a DSLR with its own brand lens (albeit kit lens) to fail in focussing while a bridge cam pass.

@nicolaiecostel,
All I know is a $500++ Nikon Failed to focus with their own lens(prime or kit), and Panasonic FZ-150 properly focussed it. It happened repeatedly.
Failure with their own lens.

On Go wide! Hands-on with Canon's 11-24mm F4 L article (228 comments in total)
In reply to:

Karen Casebeer: My question is why this new lens doesn't have image stabilization?

in this kind of wide angle lens, the hand shakes are less likely. You can take 1/25 s, or 1/16 s shutter speeds without shaking it. So image stabilizaiton is not required.

So, Canon missed out 24MP in 7D MII ? anyway welcome T6 s.

RuthC,
In previous challenges, I have seen SwamyNirmal tweaking votes, letting unfair things happen as administrator.

RuthC: Um, swamynirmal, are you referring to baby cows etc., or the backs of people's legs, as in calf muscles? Just wondering. Ruth :-)

Ruth,
He refers to calf muscles of baby cows.

In reply to:

Rens: I see the rules state that any offensive shots will be immediately removed.

I entered this:

http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/8290031639/photos/2771867/wedding-legs

from my dpreview gallery, which has been removed.

I see swamynirmal's comment below, posted after my entry and presumably prompted by it.

How prudish can you be? And how lacking in humour?

he did not disqualify this, http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=882625&View=NewFirst&Rows=4 despite no calves present

Swamynirmal,
Why won't your refrain from hosting challenges? I already explained you that, you have no integrity or skills that are required to host challenges. You may blame it on your poor English skills. But there is no specification, if just one calf is enough or there should be two or more calves needed. Like this, 'unknowns' are carelessly left out. where are calves in this photo: http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=882625&View=NewFirst&Rows=4 you did not disqualify it.

On BPG image format aims to replace JPEGs article (207 comments in total)
In reply to:

Eric Ouellet: What the heck is going down here, people talk about raw, bandwith, artifact of jpeg and so on.
There is a format with better quality and just more options for the same size... And the higher quality is truly visible! All of that for free... That's just great!!! Congratulation to Fabrice Bellard for its job and its free licensing.

About Raw: You could also save your raw file in this format (loss-less). One format that could fits all (with compression).
About Bandwith: No connection? Better quality for same size or smaller size for same quality.
About Artifact: A company do a good job or not of converting to JPEG and/or we should also live with the way this encoder works. It's not a debate on good conversion. Anybody good convert properly if they really want it.
About Better color accuracy: You can have more pixel (if any could ever see the difference) but mainly it also support the ICC (like jpeg).
We (and companies) only have to accept it and we will all live happier :-)

@akpinxit,
you misunderstood the comparison tool. Just set the photos to tiny and move the slider left to right. left side is mushy jpeg and right side is BPG. if you still see left is better, you must be communist
