  • The Nikon Df was up near 50% after it was announced.  And the comments on the front page article about it reached over 2000 in spite of DPR's negativity about the camera straight from day one. But ...
  • Apparently DPR wants free spinning dials like pinwheels. The problem is on cameras like the XE-1 or the original X100, the loose dials mean ALWAYS having to check to make sure your exposure is...

  • > The mirror box is dead!

    Except for the fact that DSLRs outsell mirrorless cameras by a huge margin, not to mention the fact that almost ALL professional photographers use some form of DSLRs or...

  • 1 out of 2 isn't bad. He is most definitely NOT a great photographer, more like a hobbyist who happens to write books on Photoshop. I once made the mistake of purchasing "The Digital Photography ...
  • Do the mushy greens and heavy NR come standard? :-)

    But seriously, it's all well and good to make another APS-C camera but with DSLR styling, but unless the RAW conversion issues with Lightroom...

  • > Do you really spend all your time shooting with your left hand on the top plate, not supporting the lens as it should be?

    No but I do shoot 90% of the time tripod mounted, and shooting hand...

    Don't know who you or Yabookie is, but I do know that I already have a wife. And I also know that none of these pricey mirrorless niche cameras are a...

  • > What will bring the end of DSLR is cost

    This X-T1 is going to cost near $1200, so you are talking near $2000 with the 18-55 f/2.8 or 35 f/1.4. Not exactly a frugal purchase.

    Considering you...

  • Panasonic has had DSLR form factor since the G1.  They also had the LC1 rangefinder years before any retro styled Olympus body. And Fujifilm made real retro cameras (Design and Controls) a full two ...
  • Have I fallen some alternate m43 reality? :-) The Fujifilm X100 was release a full two years before the EM5 was even announced. Could you name some of these innovative features that have been ...

  • From this camera?

    We keep hearing about the "end of DSLRs", but DSLRs seem to be the ONLY large sensor cameras that are selling in any numbers at all.

    All of the mirrorless vendors are in...

  • Locking exposure dials a la the Nikon Df? Any amount of money that DPR loves this camera and the dials from day one. :-)

    Part of what makes the X cameras at least interesting is the rangefinder...

  • Why, because of this an APS-C mirrorless? A different body style with the same X-Pro1 / X-E1 internals?

    So instead of making a FF, Fujifilm is dressing up an X-Pro1 to look like a DSLR. Trust...

  • If these are the "best of 2013" it's clearly not been a banner year for cameras.

    With the EM-1 you get free shutter shock and one of the smallest sensors for any crop sensor camera. The X100s...

  • All Canikon is doing is selling cameras, while the rest of the mirrorless vendors decide how they can even stay in business.

    As far as these silly polls, truth be told the D7100 blows the socks...

  • Judging from poor sales of mirrorless cameras which are at this point essentially high priced niche cameras, I'd say you are asking the wrong question. Big, bright, Pentaprism VFs will cease to ...
  • Commented on P1110943 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery

    The focal point is on her nose, mouth, the eye nearest to the camera. There may be other focal points, but that's where the photographer locked focus. At f/1.2, DOF is pretty shallow that close. ...
