peterwr: "With a 13MP *1/3.06-inch* Sony Exmor CMOS sensor..."

FFS. When are camera manufacturers going to start quoting sensor sizes in millimetres? This 1/x.x business is needlessly confusing. OK, so maybe that's the point - big numbers sound more impressive to the inexperienced, even if they have a 1 over them - but still, millimetres (or even millimeters) would make imaging chips a lot easier to compare. It would make it easier to estimate the 35mm equivalent focal length of the lenses, too.

C'mon DPReview - how about you start doing it unilaterally? You're influential enough that maybe you could change industry policy.

I've been saying this for years!
Millimeters!

For the Portland bridge test --- all that gear and effort spend, and they came out with ZERO files?

How is that possible?
They forgot the put the card in? Details?

Whenever I see a Hasselblad related article, I head straight to comments.

Fine camera I am sure, but hey, no crocodile skin grip?

I used the D2x for years... Chosen over Canon mostly for ergonomics. For the price tag, Nikon could engineer the weight and bulkiness a little, which would improve ergonomics significantly, while keeping aesthetics under control. My 2 cents.

On Miggo Strap and Grip review article (85 comments in total)

Innovation, finally.
We really need innovative ways to secure small, one lens mirrorless cameras.

Sometimes I wrap mine in a bandana. Because there are no simple, small and cheap solutions to buy. Not kidding...

Enough with those bulky camera bags that scream to be stolen...
Tamrac and all those, take notice. Be creative.

Dpreview should ditch the score and awarding system on these reviews.

Just too many comments are about a camera getting/not getting that score/award and why/why not.

lacix: Don't understand all these negative critics! You guys must be blind or something wrong with your monitors!
Fujifilm X-T1 is beats all the other cameras at ISO 6400

True, assuming ISO 6400 from Fuji is the same 6400 from other manufacturers

On Tamrac launches rugged-looking photo messenger bags news story (106 comments in total)
In reply to:

arhmatic: All this camera bags are just screaming they are camera bags.
Just waiting to be stolen.
Terrible style.

Just put your camera in a pouch, then throw it into any bag, so it looks like any random bag.

If it's a larger SLR, then it might eb tricky, but with mirrorless and 2-3 lenses, you can fit it into any shoulder bag. And all this "protection" worries are non-sense. You are not in a war zone

@t3 - tell this the the guy in Medellin, Colombia, when a gun is pointed to your face. Sure, you are watching the camera...

Eric, in many parts of the world, US included, your camera bag is a target. Period.

Just wear any regular bag, limit unnecessary padding, limit your bulkiness, and you reduce the chances of being robbed/stolen.
