Thuravi Kumaaran: Please don’t make confusion in the integrity of this well respected site, by placing untimely, unexpected promo video like this.
If this promo video has happened before the final review of Sony Alpha a6000 from Depriew, no issues may not have raised.
I felt it my duty to tell this.
I also enjoyed this excellent video. Alpha a6000 is one among, the excellent value based camera as per different reviews.
Please do more of these videos!, but before the final review from Depriew.
thanks.

@querza...same thing with 7D II comments.

aandeg: So with actual cameras it's Canon, Nikon, Sony, then the other mirrorless are not even noticeable. That certainly helps explain why Panolympus can't make any money.

So when did Sony last make any money?

Paul B Jones: Apropos of not much, most of my family holiday, social event and pet snap shooter coworkers are doing their photography now with smart phones instead of compact point and shoots.

This has changed the nature of the photographs taken. In many peoples' hands the smart phones don't handle low light scenes, bright light scenes or action scenes all that well. I know the phones can take brilliant pictures but it seems a lot of folks don't feel it necessary to put as much effort into their pictures as they used to. It is almost like the phones have changed the social value of photography, turning it from a semi-formal ritual into a mundane and hurried documentation of all random and not random activity.

I guess I am probably coming across as a snob but that is not my intent. The rise of the smartphone is perhaps creating a new form of photography in which the quantity of images taken is more important than their quality. It makes sense that this trend would be reflected in the flickr stats.

Lee Jay: "3m Coudé Refractor"

It would be news to me if such an instrument existed. I think this is a reflector, not a refractor.

it is a refractor. It is 3m focal length. Diameter is 28.5 cm.

On Rare Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6L USM goes on sale in UK article (218 comments in total)

I had a look through one of those lenses at an event some years ago. I had no idea they were that rare.

The Name is Bond: Gimmickry, not photography.

And just who exactly are you to decide that someone else's work is pointless?

In reply to:

DaveE1: His "work has garnered a lot of attention in the past couple of years"...

I'm not surprised. Popular sites, such as DPReview, are posting his photos on their sites for no other reason than others seem to be posting his photos too. Nothing attracts a crowd quite like a crowd.

I wish I hadn't thrown away all my old photos that I thought were too bland. I could have been on this page :-)

Please define real photography.

In reply to:

iAPX: Exciting!

I am switching to full frame since 6 months (bodies, then lenses, one by one); and plan to have medium-format within 2 years for portraiture.

645z is already available for pre order in Canada. (Henry's).

D 503: Why did she not have a gun ?

Yeah I'm pretty sure she would have pointed a gun at someone she thought was protecting her.

OMG eh....I predict this one will be a great hit with teenage girls.

In reply to:

sh10453: Many of the images can't be described by words. Of course there is always room for "critique"; a professional critique, that is, for those who learned it in college.

Incredible captures of the harmony between the children and the animals, staged or not, regardless of post-processing, which, in some cases, may not have been suitable to everyone's taste. But it is her art, and her taste.
If you don't like her art, remember that not everyone likes YOURS either!

For me, many of these images really explain the meaning of "A picture is worth a thousand words"!

@sh10453

Well said!

kimchiflower: Has anyone tried to shoot 1200mm at f/5.6 on a small sensor?

It cannot be pleasant.

Yep....I bet 1/3 of a stop makes a huge difference.

In reply to:

Just a Photographer: A nice camera, but way overpriced for what you get.

How foolish must one be to buy this camera in Europe where it is still $500 MORE expensive then a D800E?

This in a time where the dollar is worth just 0.65 cents to the Euro.

@ Shamael:
Enlighten me, why does a sensor "draw" any better in a mirrorless design?

In reply to:

Lab D: I can't believe how small the thing is! Imagine carring it in one pocket with a couple pancake lenses in another. With the 20mm F/1.7 it would be a great P&S camera to compliment a different micro four thirds camera.

It could be to me.

On Retro Nikon 'DF' emerges from the shadows article (1396 comments in total)
In reply to:

Morpho Hunter: Looks great ...I guess word must have got around that Olympus's "retro" cameras are selling (why do other manufacturers copy, or should I say, try to copy what they do?) It will be interesting to see if Canon also copies ..er..innovates. I quite like the idea of a digital A1 or F1 (remember those, guys?)

Nikon had a prototype of a similar camera years ago. Apparently they feel the market is ready now.

On Sony Xperia Z1 impresses in DxOMark Mobile Report post (17 comments in total)
In reply to:

jcmarfilph: In real-life scenario, only the 808 and 1020 should produce usable results. The rest of the phones will produce mediocre results at best.

Mediocre results would be quite a step up for some of the "experts " that plague the DPR site.

I will be interested to see how much this actually brings at auction.
