On Chinese government orders Nikon to stop selling D600 article (228 comments in total)
In reply to:

ozgoldman: China is a bit of a law unto itself. They do not respect patents etc. I avoid Chinese products like the plague, especially food stuffs. I have been tempted at times to buy from China on line, but once bitten, forever shy.

I am sure the Chinese products avoid you like the black plague too!

On CP+ 2014: Hands-on with Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II article (200 comments in total)

From the pictures shown, the whole package appears to be kinda clumsy, with disproportionately large external view finder, huge lens hood, and flimsy dinky flash...LCD screen about to drop off the back, what a weird contraception.

How would it play out in real action, I wonder.
What do you say?

VaLeX: Why on Earth didn't Canon make this camera weather-sealed weather-proof or any other resistance to light rain, dust and sand? With such a sensor and lens, this would be the camera to take on world trip!

You still can take it on world trips.

It's just a plain ripoff.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II Review preview (513 comments in total)
In reply to:

Alex Permit: For me, a "satisfying photographic experience" is taking photos and then being satisfied with the results when i look and/or print them at home.

The images i get from my rx100 ii are satisfying, while those from my previous powershots/Lumix/ et al are not. I know of no other POCKETABLE camera that gives pictures which satisfy but for the rx 100.

DPR's objective tests back up my subjective views.

The "user experience" of the rx 100 does not match my x100s, or even my nex 6. Those cameras, however, don't fit in my pants pocket. Neither does my D3s. So what. Each camera size class fits a purpose.

The rx100 is, imho, a clear gold star.

@Boky, I had two RX100II's in my short pockets recently, as I minded one for a friend who was swimming. What's supposed to happen?

Are you talking about boxer shorts? If so, why would you want to put a camera into your underwear?"

To keep the camera warm so the battery would last longer.

In reply to:

Richard Franiec: Possibly the most boring camera segment of the year 2013.

"By Richard Franiec (33 min ago)
What I'm saying is that DSLR's seems to be the slowest advancing segment. Solid but hardly exciting in comparison to models from previous few years."

This segment has long reached the plateau phase of development. Do you expect rapid advancement when a product line has matured? Be realistic.

In reply to:

whtchocla7e: Why the big lens? I would've liked to see the rx100 lens/sensor combo in this Nikon body.

Flagship + superzoom just doesn't compute..

Because it covers the most used range in general photography, for which this camera is intended.

rhlpetrus: Why can't Nikon put a 1 sensor in this body?

Simple, won't fit.

In reply to:

GabrielZ: Canon's G series compacts need an EVF to replace their awful optical one's.

Well, at least it doesn't suck up the battery.

In reply to:

Julian Kirkness: Just what I have been looking for - I bought a Panasonic LF1 a couple of weeks ago which has basically the same spec (plus WiFi) but I found it too small (my wife loves it though and is replacing her Nikon J1 which she never liked because of no viewfinder).

As a summary, ideal focal length range and EVF make this the first all in one camera for years which may persuade me to leave my system camera behind when travelling (OM-D + lenses).

So pre-order is in - now the waiting begins! If only we didn't get ripped off price wise in the UK!!! Our price in Dollars is £781 - over 40% higher than the USA!

Well, how much in the UK?

In reply to:

ScottRH: Nikon seems to be upgrading all products in their line up except D300. And loosing customers because of it.

Not necessary, as there are already newer/better cameras than the D300 in their lineup for those who wish to upgrade.

Dimit: Will I ever be excited by Canon (and Nicon for sure..)?
Always tiny,veeeeery tiny steps forward..seems like Sony,Fuji,Ricoh deal with the innovation,freshness,excitment thing..

We have vibrating phones, so yes, a vibrating camera is in the works, be patient, next year's upgrade.

fastlass: I have never seen you guys praise a camera's jpegs as with this one. Does this Fuji have the best jpeg output ever? Or in its class?

Everything is in the eye of the beholder, including RAW.

In reply to:

Rod McD: "Large and chunky build won't suit everyone......." (See conclusion 'cons'). Large and chunky? Really? Half the appeal of mirror-less is that they are smaller for the same sensor size than DSLRs and I thought the XE1 does an exemplary job of being small and retaining very high useability. Sure it won't suit phone and shirt pocket camera users but it's not intended to.

Otherwise a review that confirms what users have been reporting - it's a great camera.

lighter weigh yes,but compactness is determined by volume,so lighter does not always mean compact.

In reply to:

ifi: That explains why the full review was delayed, DP wanted to give Nikon enough time to calm d600 users down.

Thankfully I got my 6d few weeks ago otherwise this review might have changed my decision. In the future I will take these reviews like a grain of sand.

Very happy with my 6d, its a great camera.

everything can be improved

rfsIII: No one ever complained about the tiny film size of the Minox. People just shot with them and were cool with the results. Think of this camera a Minox for the 21st century.

Exactly!

In reply to:

kenbass: I wonder how many people complaining about looks and it will never take good pictures has even shot pictures with a V1. Try putting a F mount lens on a V1 and go shoot some pics before complaining it will never take good pics. And as for looks of the camera. I have never had anyone say anything one way or the other about the looks of my gripped D700. Who cares what it looks like as long as it takes good pictures. Who cares what anyone else thinks what the camera looks like. Get over it.

I have a V1 that takes great pictures especially for wildlife. I use a 70-300 VR lens on it and I have a 810MM setup that is great for wildlife. It also takes great pictures with the kit lenses and all of my f mount lenses.

"Get over it", it's you that need to get over it.
