Lenscraft: Every time I read comments on DPReview, I'm struck by how negative and angry that they seem. This doesn't only apply to the Canon vs. Nikon vs. Sony etc comments. As a response to this rather lovely scenic, I'm reading things like this:

"Always seemed blurry to me"

"Horrible image. To avoid as background at all costs."

"Proof, if it were needed, that even a good photographer can produce an utterly uninspiring image that looks fake."

Why are folks so negative? It's a pretty picture. Not my personal style, but that doesn't mean that I tear it down. Remember, there is a human being, a photographer like you, behind that image.

"A photographer like you"? They wish!
Don't even get me started imagining what these guys would propose to Microsoft...

fuego6: With the new cameras... this is becoming increasingly easy to accomplish.. instant focus and auto-rifle like capture. Just slam the shutter, take 40 photos and cull and enjoy after the fact. Same for milk drops now... no need to expensive equipment and triggered shutter releases... just jam the shutter button and review the results. Love technology!

Harold Edgerton made pictures like this long before the word "digital" was even invented. Your point about new cameras is...?

Is that legal?

Not just living dangerously, but living on the razor's edge. (Or should it be the sandpaper's edge?)

On Am I missing something here? article (636 comments in total)

Actually the explanation for the 1 system is very simple: Nikon doesn't want their mirrorless cameras eating in on their own DSLR cameras sales. That's why so many deem the 1's 'half-hearted.' Nikon is not commited to mirrorless, but wants to keep a foot on that market.

I want mine with a gold-plated top panel and wood-veneered handgrip, please.

On Nikon D5300 Review preview (253 comments in total)

One rotary dial for exposure. It's OK to argue this is an entry-level camera (well, sorta), but so is the Pentax K-500 and it offers two dials. Is it that expensive to implement one simple rotary dial? Fiddling with buttons is a no-no when using M mode.
