On Ghost Town: Shooting in Kolmanskop article (66 comments in total)
In reply to:

luben solev: The photos are very good. Neither are they "the best ever seen on DPReview" as claimed by Felts, nor are they "nothing special" as claimed by Gediminas 8.

They are carefully framed and well processed. My personal favourites are No 4 & No 6.

Interestingly, all but one are taken indoors and the one outdoor one does not show much of the landscape of the place. I was looking forward of some shots showing the dunes sweeping over the houses as was alluded in the text by Erez.

So my guesses are that either:

1) Erez was there in the middle of the day only when harsh light did not make for ideal landscape shooting (unless you've come packing an IR converted DSLR that is)

2) The place is not all that photogenic on the outside

3) ?

Erez, do tell us?

Hey, thats art. Some people love HDR... each to their own! Obviously this isn't a statement of fact, just my opinion :-)

For me and my kind of photography, I can't remember seeing anything I've liked more on here. But then I like photographing derelict buildings and am a stickler for tight composition.

Anyway, well done Erez! Your time spent there paid off.

On 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... something. article (1665 comments in total)

Can a Canon camera AF in the dark at f16? Can the EOS-M AF in broad daylight?

No?

See, impossible.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 First Impressions Review preview (1415 comments in total)

I'm pleased to see a camera which has 'retro' dials but is not 'retro' styled. As someone who prefers to be able to set aperture and shutter speed manually I would rather this setup rather than the more common 'modern' iterations.

I've been incorrectly beaten with the 'I'm a retro hipster' bat way too many times on this site for owning a Df. In actual fact, I couldn't care less what the camera looks like, BUT I would much rather have this user interface. I know I'm not alone with this!

Also, this looks like an incredibly impressive bit of engineering from Panasonic. I hope it sells by the bucket-load!

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (1866 comments in total)

There really are some hilariously obtuse views expressed on DPReview.

"If it's not the camera that either I own, or doesn't have the exact spec sheet that I want, it's a laughably bad product from a failing company that hates it's customers"

Or words to that effect.

All the bloody time.

Prairie Pal: 6 identical pictures of kids pointing weapons with the same unbelievable "green-screen" open mouth expressions, and fanged monsters added in post. I wouldn't say this is a new DPreview low, but really don't you have better things to with your time than repost crap like this? Don't you have camera reviews to catch up on? Looking at this is like Canadian Tire money; the second after you exit the store you throw it away.

Well said sampan. I'm not good at oil painting, but I know what I like and dislike and given that speech is free should be allowed to express this... Given that, I will also add that I'm not overly keen on these images but I'm sure there are those that will love them. That's art I guess...

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1544 comments in total)
In reply to:

Donnie G: Combining the D800 and D800E into one camera will cut production costs and justify the bump in price for the D810. That's 2 wins for Nikon and one for D810 customers who will no longer be forced to choose between AA filter or none. IMO, this is the Nikon D800 that should have been made in the first place. Still, better late than never. Go Nikon!

Actually the D820 is the camera that the D810 should have been ;-)

On Sony Alpha 7S added to test scene comparison tool article (272 comments in total)
In reply to:

km25: I my test, the 7s was the best by about 2 F stops to the Nikon D4s, the Nikon D4s was about 1.5 F stops over the Nikon Df and because I own one, A fuji X-T1. To be honest I like the Fuji X-T1 in Jpeg, better then the Df. Below ISO the Nikons and Fuji start to take over from the 7s, not in noise, but in resolution. 16MP can be considered low by some, just think were 12MP comes in. It must take fine movies. It is too bad Sony does not offer high speed lens that are native to the camera. An F/1.8 cuts near and F stop over the cameras performance.

@ Barney Britton - No I meant the D4S... It was my understanding that it is the same sensor, just the Expeed 4 processor had improved very high ISO by about ⅓ stop.
Either way, it's certainly not 1.5 stops that km25 claims.

The Nikon D4S is 1.5 stops better than the Df? They have the same sensor. Without wishing to sound rude, I suggest your test methods are flawed.

Amazing that Pentax makes a MF digital camera that conceivably I could justify buying. I always thought that digital MF was well out of my reach. Exciting times indeed...

In reply to:

davids8560: I wonder if there will be follow-up to this model, like an X-T1 "Lite" similar to the OM-D E-M10.

Errr, XM1?? Even XE-1 or 2...

In reply to:

Maverick2007: I did purchase this camera and returned it for following reasons:

1. Buttons on camera are too small its actually useless.
2. AF is OK and compared to what I am paying its not wroth at all. I can get full frame camera (size aside/portability)
3. Still it produces Water color effect photos. I think Fuji does lot of processing which I hate. I dont see actual picture.
4. Lens line-ups, really bad. Currently they have 55-200 but its too slow lens.

Overall I need to wait atleast 4-5 years to get good quality Fuji camera. I have X100s and I love that as Point and shoot but to replace my Nikon SLR's I doubt it will happen in next 4-5 years.

Maverick...

I cannot believe you complain about the glass... It's wonderful!

And, if you knew that why did you buy the camera in the first place?

In reply to:

Retzius: Oh yeah.. Well, Nikon made a new camera that looks like an old camera only it doesn't really work that well and it doesn't include video because its for real photographers who work slowly... Take that Sony!

I assume you are talking about the Df.

Why doesn't it work that well? Have you used it?

Seems to do beautifully for me thanks.
