On Video: Capturing nature with the Canon EOS 7D Mark II article (178 comments in total)
In reply to:

Rasskot: Pros and No cons. I'm glad I live in an age when the perfect camera is invented:) this website site used to mean something to me:( I really am sad. I used to know each review by heart(that is the reason why i bought 550D). Now I barely bring myself to read them and then go somewhere else on internet.. I still do read it, but it is not the same...

Our reviews contain the same analysis as they always have. This was an experiential shooting video with the goal of highlighting how an actual pro uses the gear, not a review, technical or otherwise.

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: I would love to see this type of video done with a Panasonic GH4. People would be surprised at how close Micro Four Thirds has gotten to Canon's A-PSC offerings.

We will be doing more of these videos in the next two months with additional cameras, stay tuned!

In reply to:

maxnimo: I wonder what camera the director used to shoot the whole video... it was most impressive, with perfect lighting and exposure, especially the indoor scenes.

It was a mixture of 7DMKII and C300

In reply to:

Marathonianbull: I enjoyed (and trusted) this farmed-out review format, DPReview; please, keep it that way!

Half of the piece is written by a DPReview camera tester, FYI. Not completely "farmed out". ;)

DonnCath: Thanks for the kind comments, folks.

I'll just say that my personal fave is number 15. The hands in the bottom left corner...seriously wonderful, Gerald.

We're working on an expanded view with higher resolution, thanks for the feedback!

On Nikon D750 real-world samples gallery posted article (346 comments in total)
In reply to:

ThomasSwitzerland: Ken Rockwell has just published snapshots on the D750 with the 20mm f/1.8.

http://kenrockwell.com/tech/00-new-today.htm

To me this represents outstanding journalistic quality in time and precision. Why cannot the so much larger <dpreview> deliver?

I'm interested in learning about your definition of outstanding journalistic quality in time and precision as it pertains to 5 snapshots of skyscrapers taken at 1/20th of a second. Can you elaborate?

On Sony a6000 Review preview (752 comments in total)
In reply to:

(unknown member): Sorry to say, but I'm not convinced and actually I don’t see much value anymore in the reviews. This is mainly caused by the way the comparisons are made. DXO has a bit more value for me, the lenses are tested in combination with the body.

And don’t misunderstand me, I like the Sony camera’s a lot!

First of all I don't see any example pictures with tele-lens. 70mm is max or do I miss something? The Sony Vario-Tessar T* E 16-70mm F4 ZA OSS is BTW one of the better lenses. It is difficult to compare this configuration with the bad-commented Olympus E-P5 configuration with less qualitative good lenses and then draw conclusions. Try the E-P5 with the new Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm 1:2.8 PRO!
And... in picture DSC00032-ISO100 it looks that the so called ‘shutter shock’ issue also pops-up in the Sony cameras. There are plenty other pictures online shot with longer lenses that have the same effects. But I don’t read anything in the review about this effect?

Once you reach 1,000,000 notifications the site magically will turn white.

Thomas Traub: what do dpreview think ist "free" if you have to purchase for download?

The course is free today and tomorrow, and costs money to watch after it is completed/archived.

On Nikon Df Review preview (1618 comments in total)
In reply to:

InTheMist: Steve Huff's review is up. I find his review is closer to my own reaction to the Dƒ.

"I can have any DSLR or camera that I want and for me, the Df wins it. If I designed a DSLR for my own use it would be 75% Df and 0% Canon 5D. Enough said."

I think you missed the sarcasm. :)

On Nikon Df Review preview (1618 comments in total)
In reply to:

Bamboojled: Some of the comments in the review are interesting, especially the focusing comments in low light, as I find the focusing on the Df to be as quick and as accurate as my D800.

I wonder if this is going to be scrutinized as much in the A7/r review as it was on the Df review.

"DPR form's an early opinion"

This is part of doing a first impressions preview. You have to share your thoughts on the camera at that point in time. But the idea that after sitting in a studio testing the gear hours on end, going out for photowalk after photowalk, testing specific features, weeks on end, that a reviewer and his/her supporting team are not able to form an informed stance on the gear? I'm not following the logic.

In reply to:

Timmbits: A bit ironic that SONY has such poor videoconferencing equipment for the video link (for Marc who couldn't be there).

This is actually the result of us using Skype to conference in our guests, nothing they can do to improve the quality.

tom1234567: Hi all
Your doing a great job,
as I live in the U.K. what's the best time to tune in live
and watch from the beginning.
Will you be recording the live view so we can catch up on what we miss
Cheers
Tom G

Hi Tom, we're about to start the 3rd segment in 15 minutes, 1:15 PST, which will run for 90 minutes roughly. We will then begin a re-broadcast of the entire show immediately after.

In reply to:

BrianSA: This was pretty awful. I stood about half a minute of the rubbish presentation. The video is disjointed, stopping after about 5 seconds and waiting for the download to catch up. This happened every 5 seconds, so made it almost impossible to watch. Pausing it, unlike professionally run video sites, did not allow the whole video to down load in order that I could watch it seamlessly.

Completely pointless. Even the little I was able to see seemed to be aimed at 9 year olds.

Brian, we're sorry the streaming wasn't working too well for you. That's one of the pain points of streaming video, it is difficult for us to control the quality for all our viewers. Thanks for giving it a shot and for the feedback.

On DPReview on CreativeLIVE article (142 comments in total)
In reply to:

Timmbits: I'm just curious as to why you guys blatantly refuse to talk about Samsung.
Your owners Amazon sell the line. They have some nice value models in MILC.
For example, the NX20 competes with the other MILC, offers better resolution than most models (just not Sony nex7), and they have some very nice lenses! I'm just totally in love with the new 45mm f1.8
They have their faults, of course. But in terms of bang for the buck... last year I paid $400 for an NX20 (body). Compare that with the $800-$1500 for other MILC cameras with as much controls, tilt screen, viewfinder (and most often 16mp instead of 20mp).

PS: mind you, in all fairness, I get it, that you can't cover every camera. but you did include samples from every manufacturer except that one.

We definitely are not avoiding Samsung, we've even invited them today to be a part of our panel discussion so stay tuned in! I think the reality is that there is a crowded and competitive market and not every camera gets the spotlight.

In reply to:

JohnEwing: Good luck indeed.

But folk who visit DP Review are generally quite knowledgeable about photography, so do we really need to have all that elementary stuff in "Product roundups..." explained? I watched for two minutes then went elsewhere.

We'll be working our way up through the classes and experience levels, but we do have to speak to the products and technology in a manner that doesn't assume too much about the viewer's familiarity with the gear. Either way, thanks for the feedback John!

In reply to:

Corkcampbell: Does anyone know when this will be rebroadcast? I am in Seoul and won't be able to see it at 2:00 AM, although will give a try. Creative Live usually rebroadcasts directly after the live event same day, but I would also miss that. Will it be broadcast a third or more times?

I checked Creative's website but couldn't find the info.

Thanks for any help; really looking forward to this and also really support the idea.

We are going to begin a re-broadcast immediately after the first broadcast finishes. It may run long or short, but we're aiming for 3:00 PM PST.

On Camera roundups 2013: What to buy and why article (286 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jogger: Why is DPR recycling the comment thread from the other round-ups.. its a bit confusing to have different "news" items with the same comment thread.

Same thing with recycling threads when reviews finally arrive and you think "oh, there are 1500 comments since the review was released 10 min ago".

We agree with you, this comment structure is not ideal, and a technical roadblock we're going to address. THanks for the feedback!

In reply to:

DotCom Editor: I'm excited to learn from this piece that I need neither camera nor lenses in my camera bag. It really lightens the load.

I think you are confused. The first slide of the slideshow contains the editorial text you have stated should exist in the slideshow.
