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

Francis Sawyer: Canon: totally out of ideas, and detached from the world of photography and filmmaking. They're just crapping out one embarrassing product after another now.

I always wait to see what people have to say about Canon's New products. It never fails to see someone bashing them for lame reasons. Give It A Rest.

On Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? article (1511 comments in total)

I can't vote. I haven't used any that are listed. I feel as if you need to have used at least 2 of the listed cameras to give an honest vote, otherwise you're just voting for your favorite brand name.

In reply to:

toomanycanons: I've never used ACDSee. Anyone want to comment on this update as opposed to, say, Lightroom 4 or CS5/6, if they're even comparable.

There are 2 things that ACDSee does and light room doesn't do well...well at least 2 things for me.

1. The batch editing is the best Resizing, Watermarking just to name 2 in that area.

With lightroom all the photos have to be the same res or the watermarking does not work correctly. Not with ACDSee.

2. The Healing tool. I can remove scars, and long streaking marks or items from ACDSee easier.

With lightroom you can not click and drag the healing tool. You have to do spot by spot. With ACDSee...just click and drag to remove long scars, streaks across and image (sky, ground). I use it to reshape something.

Clint Dunn: Wow...I totally forgot about ACDSee....haven't used it since the very first version.

It's even better than before. I've been using it sine version 1.

I just upgraded...Now it will not read my RAW files from my Canon EOS M. ACDSee 5 did but not 6. What's that all about?

On IMG_0853 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (7 comments in total)

Why is the Exposure comp -2.33 in a low light situation? Can someone explain this to me. Is there a reason you would set it so low in low light?

gl2k: Nice that Panny gives customers a feature that Canikon users already enjoy for many years now. LOL.

To limorenko: I didn't mind that it has no built in flash. I kind of like that. I was use to it from the 5D cameras I've owned.

OK...I see your point. Well I sold my 5D mark II because I wanted to do a major downsizing in equipment. I know the image quality was not going to be like the 5D, but I wanted a good camera. I've been happy with all my other Canon cameras purchases the past (all dslr's).

I'm getting out of the photography business, (too time consuming with a full time job and an 8 year old who wants to play all the time) but I wanted a camera that took great pics of my son. He does Track and Field, Trampoline, Gymnastics, Mountain Biking, Kayaking, etc...just an active guy. I wanted to go the mirrorless route. I really thought this would be a good choice since it is basically and compact T4i. (as canon is basically stating) I think I better do some homework on this one. Don't want to make a bad choice and it looks like I almost did just that.

To Mescalamba:
Why do you think the EOS-M is laughable. Just want to know what's on your mind. I was thinking about purchasing it. It has the same sensor as the 4Ti which got a good review.

Well put me in the Nut House. I sold my 5D Mark II, now I'm purchasing this EOS M. I must be CrAzY.

On Photokina 2012: Interview - Dirk Jasper of Nikon article (220 comments in total)
In reply to:

GiovanniB: This interview reflects a very good approach towards their customers by Nikon, including respecting the wishes of owners of legacy lenses - talk of long-term commitment in opposite to ever-faster "innovation" cycles and planned obsolescence. Congratulations - in fact if I'd not be invested in a Canon full frame system already, I'd seriously consider returning to Nikon completely today (having been a Nikon user in the film era for some time, but I wasn't completely happy with their AF bodies and some of the lenses back then).

Yes!

In reply to:

Tape5: This year is double Xmas for Nikon. They are standing way above the competition after the Photokina dust settles. I will remember 2012 with D800 and RX1.

Sad Joe: You nailed it on the head. I will hang with Canon a little longer but Nikon is killing them. Come on Canon...step up to the plate and swing back...HARD.

In reply to:

Nishi Drew: "it was important to include a 100% viewfinder, a good AF system with enough cross-type AF points, the ability to shoot with teleconverters and still focus at F8, a built-in flash…"

See Canon, Nikon understands that these specs in a camera are all important~
No "pros don't use that" or "amateurs don't need that" reasoning

I'm a Canon used and I agree with all of what you said except the built in flash. Built in flashes are lame and they never do a good job. I loved my 5D Mark II before I sold it (getting out of the photo business) and I loved that it did not have the lame pop up cheap flash. All the other stuff I agree 100%. I'm still a Canon user.

On Reuters showcases EOS-1D X multiple exposure modes article (226 comments in total)
In reply to:

PeakAction: I'm always surprised to see how much time people will spend online arguing pointless technical crap for nothing. 80% of this (and many other) threads consists of back-and-forth flaming. It proves one thing: if you have that much time, you're definitely not out shooting. Maybe you should do some of that instead.

I second that. It' like they have nothing else better to do but complain.
