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 (1493 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.

On Hands on with the Pentax 645Z article (655 comments in total)

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?

Dear Cane,

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.

I have to say I wasn't aware of her work, but having had a look at her website it was my loss, and now it is the loss of many more around the world. RIP

Whilst they are all lovely photos, I find most of them to be well captured and composed 'snaps'. A couple are really wonderful and the shadow picture with the cat is genius.

I think all the locks on the dials are a mistake... The shutter speed lock is one thing that I would change on my XP1, that didn't need changing from the X100.
