This will sell well. God knows why.

The 600D is cheaper.

This kills micro four thirds but it is not really good.

Shocking in its mediocrity. Cameras are getting really boring.

A real photographer would have defaulted on the bills.

What a stupid camera. Overpriced and just one useless focal length.

In reply to:

KrisPix: Great news ... even if Olympus only brings out just a high-end E-7 this year hopefully there would be an affordable E-xx or E-xxx model sometime in the not too far future as well.

If they ever make another E it will be mirrorless or hybrid. I would not hold my breath.

On CP+ 2013: Interview with Olympus' Toshi Terada article (242 comments in total)

Olympus fail to realise that their biggest asset is their glass. I did not buy into fourtthirds because it was small and compact. It was for the lenses. I did not buy the om-d because it was small. I bought it because I thought olympus had stopped making dslr's and I thought they would provide good glass for micro.

I was mistaken. They continue to churn out rehashes of plastic lenses and price gouge on the lens hood etc. Yes they have one or two nice lenses at weird focal lengths but that is not going to work. Where is the high grade 14-54? Where is the 50-200mm ?

As it stands they are lucky that panasonic make video cameras, sony have no lenses and fuji are mad as a box of frogs. When the competition get their act together they will once again be left in the dustl.

ArmandN: I recently reviewed the same 3 programs (http://www.twin-pixels.com/best-photo-raw-converters/) and I came to pretty much the same conclusions.

And I didn't review Aperture either because it wasn't updated; it wouldn't be fair to compare the current gen Lightroom with old-gen Aperture.

That seems like a reasoned choice.

wakaba: Where is ViewNX2? Fast and easy!

Where is Gimp and its raw converter? Not so fast but lots of features.

Crossplatform is not really a selling point since like 10000 B.C

It is a strange decision indeed. Is it any wonder the top thread on dpreview is, L'iberalism is a psychological disorder.'

swankFoto: Aperture not included, seriously?
What value does this review have without Lightroom's biggest competitor? Aperture wasn't even mentioned in the intro.

Are you saying you don'ty cater for macusers richard? If so that is a jolly poor show. Some might think youare taking the microsoft dollar.

On Capture One Fujifilm X-Trans Raw support tested article (211 comments in total)
In reply to:

HowaboutRAW: I assume that the DPReview test setup shot from this comparison started as the ISO 200 RAF file from last year’s XPro1 review.

Instead of extracting that file to jpg, I extracted it to tiff with PhotoShop CS6, and it sure looks better than the ACR jpgs in this comparison to the new CaptureOne.

The ACR tiff of the etched woman’s face looks just as good as the CaptureOne jpg.

And when the CaptureOne servers cooperate, I’ll get that trialware and test it by doing extractions to tiff. I’ll also make sure to do high ISO tests with CaptureOne; because from what I remember the last time I tried CaptureOne it couldn’t hold a candle to ACR for high ISO noise control.

That DigiKam freeware looks good for these Xtrans files, but it will take a few more releases. It could view RAF files from the XE1, but crashed at extraction time, then could not view RAF files from the XPro1. Managed to extract Samsung raws well enough, but created an odd 2 file tiff. (Running v2.9 on Windows 7.)

Perhaps this sensor is not suited to jpegs.
