On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)

The side by side comparison tells everything... A little more finesse, Nikon.

Thanks preview for continuing to cover the Adobe fiasco.

I am here for the comments, as usual. Quality entertainment.
Not even bothering to read the article.

Cheers!

mgblack74: For a relatively smart group of people here, there sure are a bunch of nitpicky morons. Jesus.

Smart? Nikon thinks otherwise.

Nikon is really testing our intelligence with this.

What do you expect? Dear Jesus...

On Nikon Df combines classic design with modern technology article (313 comments in total)

Nikon had all this history and great precedents, it still got it wrong.

Ugly. Clunky...
More subtle retro...
A little more finesse please...

Fuji it is for me, still...

The Davinator: This ain't no FE2 or F3 in size. Clunky, fat, darn shame. Glad I moved to Fuji

Fuji it is for me.

Too clunky. A little more style and finesse, please...

Video?
I don't need it personally, but it's a freebie, so why not?
You can never know when you need it?

What is hard to believe is some users think that having video will somehow magivally cripple their cameras.
Nonsense....

Almost right...
Nikon got the basics in place. All it needs is a little finesse.
More refinement.
A little smaller too...

joexu: That is pretty big, just a DSLR with retro looks. Would've preferred a mirrorless FF

nevermind, back to Fuji.

In reply to:

neo_nights: Honest question: I know that smartphones don't give a lot of control, thus making the test scenes a little hard to even them out. But there are some apps out there that at least let you choose ISO. It's really unfair to compare a "high ISO" of 400 against a high ISO of 1600 (Galaxy 4).

So why don't you use an app and at least use same ISO for all the smartphones?

If my iPhone got just a little smarter, I'd do 98% of my photos in anything but Auto...
At least exposure compensation. It's that basic... Do it Apple!

arhmatic: I have a dumb question -
Why are sensor sizes always measured in inches?

Most if the world is in metric. Including manufacturers. But even for people using inches in everyday life is hard to calculate fractions and compare sizes... I am a US architect, using inches daily, ALWAYS preferring to see millimeters...

@slncezgsi
Good link. Just in the article above...

1/2.3" vs 1/3" ok... I can think a little, I can figure it out which one is bigger... OR...
6.17mm vs 4.8mm BOOM! Got it!

On Nikon D800 Review preview (16 comments in total)

Maybe it's just me, but I see this camesas looking more and more like a melted soap bar. I miss the days when bodies had straight, clean lines. They were also much smaller, for the same full frame film...

Plastek: Still no iPad version?

This iPad app needs to happen asap. Any other updates to the existing versions can wait.
Same with Instagram.

On Nikon D610 preview (627 comments in total)

The naming is odd. They should have renamed the current one d600c, plastic, and have the new one with some golden Button and call it d600s.

In reply to:

Jiri Folta: I was taken by the quality of Fujifilm cameras and lenses. Not only optical quality but also craftsmanship quality. It was major reason why I sold my Nikon D7000 and all those plastic Nikon lenses made in China, Thailand and so on.
Now, I'm reading that new Fuji lenses are plastic and made in China (XC 16-50mm OIS and XF 27mm (as written on fujirumors.com - First Look: X-M1 with New Kit Zoom and Pancake Lens). An idea of photographic company that is going to bring quality materials and some quality spirit is gone. I hope not but it seems like things are going this way.
Reading some day that X-Pro 2 or X-E 2 are made in China I would sell it all away.
I don't want to buy plastic in China made lenses and cameras. I want in Japan made metal quality. For me, buying Fuji was not only buying photographic tool, it was also investment in the future! It was some kind of promise many photographers had accepted.
I hope we can call Go Fuji Go in the future again!

Agreed!

Construction quality is important. I am not buyting the concept that metal would double cost, as some say. Weight is fine with me. Fuji, if you turn to plastic, I am out... sorry.
