On Hands on with the Pentax 645Z news story (340 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...

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,

Are you this pleasant away from cyberspace?

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.

This is just bloody great! My XP1 is such a capable camera but is AGAIN updated with great new features. This is such a good way to do business. Why would I look at any other camera manufacturer?

On Adobe now offers Photoshop and Lightroom for everyone news story (625 comments in total)
In reply to:

Felts: There's a lot of whinging and moaning about this (I realise I may get some backlash for this statement)...

£8.78 per month = £105.36 per year.
If they put their prices up next year to, say, a tenner = £120 per year.
The following year, maybe £12 = £144 per year.

So in 3 years you'll have paid £370 which is still just over half the price of CS6.

And you get LR5, storage etc., and all the subsequent updates as part of the package. I'm not sure I understand the negativity!?

And all this mention of greed... it's what companies do, try to make money.

If you want to sign up, great, enjoy the package. If you don't want to, also great... enjoy your other software programme.

It's made Photoshop affordable for me so I'm going to take the plunge! :-)

But in 5 years when you'll have paid for the current CS6 price, you'd want to upgrade to CS7, CS8, LR6, LR7 wouldn't you? It's just a different way of paying for your product and it seems a cheaper way too...

In reply to:

Paul_B Midlands UK: Big splash Sony - 2000 comments in a day, whereas poor old Pentax K3 150 comments in 5 days, they must be mortified. In this formula if I come back in a week Sony will be at 10,000 ... well probably not ule geeks will all be bored by then and ripping apart the next newbie bit of kit.

DPReview continue the comment count from earlier posts relating to a camera... The older comments here are a month old. You never know, in a month the Pentax count could be close to 200...

I moved across from Aperture to LR about a 6 months ago and have never looked back. I couldn't help but get very 'digital' looking images from Aperture, where as they are far smoother film-like colours I get in LR.

The extra tools found in LR5 has frankly transformed my photography.

On Fujifilm X100S Review preview (470 comments in total)
In reply to:

armanius: So glad a major reviewer finally discussed the lack of face detection in Fuji's "advanced" cameras. I hope Fuji will implement face detection via firmware upgrade in its "advanced" cameras, and/or in its upcoming cameras.

As a user of the X100 and XP1 I would love face detect. I went to a music festival recently and every pic of me is OOF because I handed the cam to a non-photographer. Face detect would have negated this issue.
