On Hands on with the Pentax 645Z news story (483 comments in total)
In reply to:

Donnie G: Now this is the kick ass Pentax that I've been waiting for. Not some wannabe medium format pretender dressed in FF 35mm clothes or some disemboweled mirrorless hodgepodge of a frankenstein experiment that's searching for a reason to exist, but the real deal at an enthusiast/prosumer accessible price point. Pentax is bringing medium format to the masses. Ricoh! You done good baby!

Oh yeah? How about you vote with your wallet and ACTUALLY BUY IT? instead of just whining?

iae aa eia: Haha! Come on! A normal lens is 55mm?! I remember that used to be wideangle and normal 70mm. Alright, the digital doesn't need to be bind to film era sizes, but do you really consider a decent step up going from 43mm to 55mm? That's ridiculous to me. Alright, the camera is awesome, the system too, it's a size other brands use in their digital-era "medium" format, and I can't afford one, it's just that it's even a smaller step than from an APS to an FF!

See, that's my point too, this camera takes all MF burdens and not offering much more than a 135 system, while lacking a lot of lenses, conclusion? Lame.

Fri13: If you want great control for depth of field, high resolution (you are working with prints over 100x60cm), then you do not want to waste money to any full frame cameras but get this giant. You don't lose in size or weight but you gain more than any DSLR can offer.

If you don't want to this, then m4/3 is best format to use. If you company m4/3 camera with this, you have best setup.

NO, without fast lenses, this camera does NOT offer more DoF control. Put a 85 f1.2 FF, what lens does this need to offer at least similar DoF control? A 108mm f1.5 lens. Does this lens exist in this world? I highly doubt about it. Without matching lenses this camera is no match to FF.

So int he end Pentax still can't produce any full-sized sensor cameras! It's either Cropped 35mm or cropped 645, Pentax is for Croppers! It's sensor is far smaller than theactual '645' model number suggests, no matter how you fans spin it.

On Fujifilm teases upcoming SLR-style X system camera news story (921 comments in total)
In reply to:

RedFox88: This is a camera trying to fix something that isn't broken. We don't need dials for these settings as they are better and faster controlled in other ways. This must be the camera for the mid-life crisis men in their 50s and 60s even 70s who want to try to "re-claim" their youth... and pay for it!

WTF? If you don't find the elegance of the control layouts in this camera (and other previous fuji X's), you don't know nothing about photography and just forget about cameras. A cell phone with all auto suits you better.

On Have Your Say: Best DSLR / SLT of 2013 news story (349 comments in total)
In reply to:

grock: The best camera was obviously the one I use, since it's the one made by the best company and has the best test results and is made with the best materials into the best ergonomic shape. It's too bad the people at DPreview are so biased against this company and clearly are in the pocket of this company's competitors. This site is so lame to only award the camera I bought a 93% rating. But I'll keep coming back here to make sure everyone knows which camera is the best and how lame/biased DPreview.com is!

Mine's better than yours! That's absolute, final, definite statement!

This is the biggest problem of Sony camera business: the lack of commitment. And it is the reason that I never had, and will never have any Sony camera.

rfsIII: What they're not telling you is that "organic" is just another word for "carbon-based life form." Bottom line: this sensor is alive; it's a creature that was either discovered or genetically engineered to live inside your camera and translate photons into images (remember the bird that lived inside Fred Flintstone's camera and chiseled pictures onto stone tablets? Same principle, different species). Nobody tell PETA or they'll put the kibosh on the whole thing.

Animal cruelty! And when I say "my sensor just died", I mean it! Literally!

Is it 1.2x MORE sensitive or 1.2x AS sensitive? That makes a lot of differences. 1.2x AS sensitive as old technology as in less than 1/3 stop ISO improvement? Not interested.

Still ugly as heck! Also with the teeny tiny pea shooter sensor I don't see a need for this at all.

On Canon EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Preview preview (81 comments in total)
In reply to:

Marvol: "we'll look at how well it performs just as soon as we can"

Why are you already committing to review a fairly specialised lens of a rather unimpressive mirrorless system? Surely you can do better things with your time?

For comparison I noticed that, unless I am missing something (I searched this site), you haven't reviewed the EOS M itself. I can only find a preview from July 2012. So you're willing to review this lens (not the kit lens, not the prime) on a camera you haven't reviewed in nearly a year? Srsly?

Because he is a blind Canon fanatic. The M system is a fail. It's the biggest joke in mirrorless camera history. Get your head out of the sandpit. I'd rather invest my money into the M43 platform which are supported by many manufacturers, than putting all the egg into the falling basket!

In reply to:

BozillaNZ: As a long term Canon user, I already gave up on Canon's mirror-less attempts. I started looking at M4/3 gears for a long time and finally pulled trigger for a Panasonic GX1 for $229. The M4/3 lens ranges are far better than this and, oh, the GX1 can actually focus, FAST. Also guess where does the M4/3 fund come from? Selling some of the Canon lenses.

No useful size benefit from m43? Did you see those pancake prime lenses 14, 17, 20, 25, 45? Lumix 7-14 ultra wide zoom? Long teles in the size of DSLR normal lens? And M's focus speed is 2 times as fast! Yay! Still way too slow though. And yes, m43 sensor is smaller than APS-C, but at least those sensors are good, up-to-date ones, unlike the M uses the lame 18mp Canon sensor which originated from 7D and passed along to 60D, 550D, 600D, 650D, 700D, which is noisy in ISO 100 in day light.

With the time I open the card door to access the switch, I can instead take the card out and chuck it into the SD slot in my desktop/laptop and only using 1/100 time to transfer all my images over!

Jebus, This is what happens when you post this news on a camera whore forum, everyone brag about this 2MP 'issue'!

Further more, if you have done primary school algebra, you would know that the supposed "Full HD" resolution of the grand 1920x1080 is exactly 2MP! Now get a hammer and smash all your "Full HD" resolution devices because they are sooooo low spec-ed! Yeah!
