On Enthusiast mirrorless camera roundup (2014) article (300 comments in total)
In reply to:

lacikuss: These comparisons should be done based on target market rather than camera technology.

I would like this:

Best Landscape Cameras
Best Sports Cameras
Best Family Cameras
Best Pocketable Cameras
Best Video Cameras
Best Camera under $500
Best Camera under $1000
Best Camera under $1,500

See you're (dpr) still very much focused on product and very little on customer segment. Focus on customer needs and you'll be better off.

Well, you have eight categories... each category would need several cameras to make it worthwhile, right? How many cameras have been released this year?

On Sony announces US pricing for full-frame Alpha 7 II article (177 comments in total)

$1700 seems to be a fair price for a high end mirrorless. This was the X-pro1 price two years ago, and for the X-PRO 2 I expect the same, or slightly less...

Frankly, I don't see any camera these days justifying a price over $1700, full frame DSLR included.

Would they sell the gold plated lens cap separately?

I might get just that...

On Apple iPhone 6 Plus camera review post (192 comments in total)

"Despite its nominally lower resolution than most competitors in the high-end bracket of the smartphone market in our brightly lit studio scene the Apple iPhone 6 Plus performs very well and squeezes more detail out of its 8MP image sensor than some 13MP models. Thanks to a well-balanced approach to noise reduction and sharpening it is even very close to the 16MP Samsung Galaxy S5. "

They are precisely 2 years "close" IMO. The iPhone 7s will probably be "very close" to the Samsung Galaxy S5...

On 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... something. article (1659 comments in total)

This should go down in the marketing manuals as an anti-campaign.

Direct link | Posted on Oct 8, 2014 at 16:19 UTC as 98th comment

If my information is correct, and to summarize that I've read so far -

- The Leica is basically the re-branded Panasonic. The outside is much cleaner, while the insides are probably the same.
- Price difference is +300. Basically 25% more for a better, nicer, cleaner envelope.

Is it worth it?
If I was in the market for this type of camera, I'd take the Leica, FIRM!

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2702 comments in total)
In reply to:

Donnie G: I'm surprised at the number of armchair camera designers here who are so upset with Canon for not turning its excellent pro-grade, deliberately built for action photography, APS-C camera into just another consumer grade, jack of all trades, wannabe pro pretender. Meanwhile, the real camera designers and engineers at Canon will again be laughing all the way to the bank as the EOS 7DII proves once again to be the only true professional level APS-C interchangeable lens camera system in existence, today, tomorrow, and into the foreseeable future. :)

Why do you think the 7DII is the only true APS-C Professional camera?

Nevermind Nikon, but you are implying that none of the mirrorless are pro-level cameras?

In reply to:

arhmatic: The iPhone is probably the most used camera mainly because it's in your pocket. I've been using one daily since 2007.

Otherwise, is below average, I have to sadly admit... No exposure compensation, no ISO, interface nowhere near Nokia's....

@Mrrowe8 - I am sure you are not imagining I am using an old, 2007 iPhone, right? I've been using them all since 2007 - Fist gen, 3G, 4, 5 --- at the moment they were released, nowhere near Nokia or Samsung. Is it safe to assume that the 6 plus would be good for 2012, but this is 2014 right?

5.5 - 6" is more and more common. This will be standard in not too much time. If Apple is not doing at least 5" on the next iphone, they are pretty much out.

On Fujifilm updates X-mount lens roadmap to end of 2015 article (170 comments in total)
In reply to:

kwa_photo: I do love how Fuji is about as open and transparent as they can be to help their users make informed decisions. It enhances loyalty to the brand IMO.

Agreed, when it comes to lenses. On the other hand, there is some ambiguity if they will go full frame or now, which makes some users hold off purchases in lenses --- myself included.

Latest rumors say it will stay aps-c, which I like better.

Direct link | Posted on Jul 24, 2014 at 06:29 UTC

Great to push the boundaries.
Sony has been really innovative with many photography products over the years.

Apple has been lagging behind for years now. They are still good at marketing... Little chances I will get yet another iPhone, regardless.

Wondering if they will eventually issue a pro photo editing software sometimes in the future... at the same level with Final Cut Pro.

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1575 comments in total)

Call this off topic if you will, but can anyone speculate why can't nikon fit the guts of the d810 in a body the size if the nikon F2?

Nothing more, noting less, just the size of the F2... Not for the retro looks, just for the size and portability.
