On Mid-range Mirrorless camera roundup 2013 article (295 comments in total)
In reply to:

tkbslc: Seems odd that the two cameras recommended are the most DSLR-like options.

So much for small, but serious.

No red dot? I'll pass.

Impressive. These test results support Zeiss' claim that the Otus is a no compromise lens indeed. Well...perhaps only in the pocketbook.

Please forgive Adobe for trying to test the theory that a sucker is born every minute.

Then I look forward to reading the review on the final product soon.

On Rare photos of Rolling Stones emerge from estate sale article (106 comments in total)

These photos are a welcome archive of days past and long forgotten.

The Stones probably don't remember much from the '60s because they were really there.

Nor the '70s, '80s, '90s....

On DPReview Gear of the Year - Part 1: Fujifilm X100S article (307 comments in total)
In reply to:

reginalddwight: Fun time of year.

My guess at Barney's Top 5 Cameras of 2013:

5) Fuji X100S

4) Canon 70D

3) Nikon Df

2) Olympus OM-D E-M1

1) Sony A7/R

That is true. Barney may have been tanked up when he was writing the Df preview.

On Classic photographs recreated in Lego article (123 comments in total)

Nothing really that imaginative here.

I found better recreations at a recent trip to Legoland.

On Canon Korea teases new camera, EOS M2 or SL1/100D? article (259 comments in total)

In a game of one-upmanship, Canon did not plan to remain idle while Nikon debuted the highly anticipated Df.

I think Canon's new product will be a retro-style digital AE-1.

On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)

OVF with split-image screen? Nope.

Hybrid OVF with EVF and focus peaking? Forget about it.

Nikon, what's the point of having a retro-style camera that supports a slew of legacy manual focus AI and non-AI lenses but offers only a small green dot in the OVF as the primary focusing aid?

On Nikon video hints at long-desired 'digital FM' article (552 comments in total)

Thank you for the story, DPR. Better late than never.

What's old is new again. Retro styling for the hipsters, but a throwback for the boomers.

On What just happened?! Looking back on last week article (98 comments in total)
In reply to:

Greg VdB: Last week you actually made some observations on forum activity the week before, which provided added value to the news round-up. This week, it's merely a summary of the news items (which are all still on the first page)... In my opinion, these weekly round-ups will only be of interest when you provide a critical analysis of what you've "learned" from the comments on the news items.

Agree wholeheartedly.

After having a moment to digest the plethora of announcements of new product releases last week, a thoughtful reflection of what this means for digital photographers and the evolution of the photo industry would be a nice touch.

On Marco Bohr investigates 'hipster photography' article (105 comments in total)

I see this recent trend of photography nothing more than a byproduct of readily accessible "hipsta" filters on apps like Hipstamatic and Instagram, with photos then shared through social media to allow them to go "viral" and become an internet "meme".

What once was old is new again.

Such is the circle of life.

On Sony Alpha A7 / A7R preview (2372 comments in total)

With Sony's latest FF MILCs, we may be seeing the beginning of the end of DSLRs as products for mass consumption.

Nikon and Canon should take heed.

Hmmm.

Got it, Barney.

Let's hope we will get an updated roundup soon. Time is short. The Holidays are just around the corner.

On Nikon D610 preview (627 comments in total)

Shame on Nikon.

I have been shooting with Nikon gear for 10+ years, but I wonder why anyone should continue buying their photo equipment blindly...especially after how poorly they have handled the D600 oil splatter issue.

Nikon can extend an olive branch to D600 customers by allowing a trade-in of affected D600's for a new D610.

Photographers must stand united. Today, we are all D600 owners.
