On Apple to cease development of Aperture article (423 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jun2: cloud means you have to rent software and data storage space, then they will study your files to figure out ways to make more money out of you.

Leandros - So you are saying that changin gdefault setting form "iCloud" storage to local storage is "extra work", when developing ONE image takes more time, talk about making an elephant out of an ant in that case.
Also, if you are so scared about what is going through your network, then you should abandon all Adobe softwares (absolutely CC versions), Microsoft 365 or any other rental software.
Also, your OS, may it be microsoft or apple are communicating thorugh the network a lot to chek for updates and stuff like that, do you know what is included in those packages?

I mean, there has to be an limit of what is reasonable paranoia and not.

If you worry to much, install a firewall that monitors your outbound and inbound traffic and stop what is not allowed.

cloud != "not be able to use disk"

They will not remove disk storage option only because they have cloud storage also, so why worry?

slncezgsi: While curved sensor will definitely help to get well performing optical designs that are simpler and therefore cheaper, there will be a problem left - all lenses that will be designed for such a camera will have to have the image plane curved in the same way. AND gone is using older or 3rd party lens on such a camera if the camera has curved sensor, but the XY lens.

Still this may be very interesting for fixed lens camera (again - the image curvature will need to stay constant over the zoom range)

What if they also release an adapter that can be placed between camera and lens that is "negative" in effect so that old lenses could be used?
Unsure how that would work because it sounds like it should add up to the length between lens and sensor (additional adapter between)?!

Well, Nikon never claims in their video that they are alone with the technology.
What they do is they present it in a nice way.

On Nikon D4s First Impressions Review preview (1047 comments in total)
In reply to:

RedFox88: No difference form d4 to d4s in RAW, but the d4s is better at JPG at very high ISO. Worth paying for the d4s if you have a d4 or d3s? No.

stu 5 - the difference is so small that it is irrelevant and will not be seen in most cases. The power of the new D4s is in the jpeg engine.

In reply to:

rwbaron: It appears Nikon has cleaned up the RAW performance by a good half stop compared the D4 which is admirable. I would say 409,600 D4S is not quite as good as 204,800 on D4 but close. I also looked for the 1DX to compare but alas not on the list so I took the 6D and wow, I had no idea the 6D was that good at low light high ISO shooting. Very close to the D4S at 102,400. This is good news for all of us regardless of brand.

I have an hard time seeing that difference whe nwatching the raw samples. I would say they are almost identical in RAW performance. It seems that mostly JPG engine benefits from the new hardware.

On CP+ 2014: Things we found that had been cut in half article (107 comments in total)

"One of the interesting things about telephoto prime lenses is how few pieces of glass they contain compared to a lot of zooms. This is the Canon EF 500mm F4L IS II USM, sliced wide open for all the world to see. Shameless."

Interesting that we pay so much money for so much air. ;-)

In reply to:

ric63: Great video, would like to see more.
The 50-500 I have it a stunning lens, super fast, super sharp and the coulours are amazing.
I would not hesitate to recomend Sigma to anyone.

I have their 50-500 also, i had both the previouls version (without OS) and now i have the new one with OS and i liked both of the.
I can also recommend the 50-500 lens.
But i also have the new 70-200 2.8 OS lens and i am quite dissapointed about it, it is really soft and lacks contrast wide open and when the OS kicks in it shifts the image a bit.

In reply to:

halai: DPR, you forgot to mention "NO VIDEO" as a con. I was looking forward to purchase this camera, then found there is no video function. It would have been a perfect camera for me. Oh well, will save my money for something else.

I don´t see "no vid" as a con in a camera made for photographing.

backayonder: I saw one in a shop in Sydney yesterday and it sure is big and clunky.

T3, D4 is a brick in size and weight to better balance and support the bigger lenses that are widely being used with the D4.

mbrobich: Nikon you suck. Where the H*** is the D400 ?

JohnEwing - The D600 is FF, the D400 would be DX, similar to D300(s).

DNG is an open standard, so why the concerns?

In reply to:

viking79: This also scares me as it could easily be a way to prevent 3rd party companies from making lenses for their cameras.

To me, there is too much hassle involved in this, i.e. do you want security or freedom and I would rather have freedom. Sure, it sucks to have a lens stolen, but when it prevents you from shooting it is even worse.

Has anyone here ever had a Honda? Ever unplugged the negative cable and not been able to find your radio code? Really sucks.

It does not mean that you NEED to enter a password for the lens.
It might be an system that gives you the possibility to password protect the lens, probably with an turn on/off function for the feature.

Example: you are travelling and shipping your lenses in a box, you do not wish to box to be stolen and sold, so while travelling you enter passwords for the lenses and if all goes well, when you arrive at destination you can "unlock" them again.
Just an example.

In reply to:

WT21: I am thinking this is a very poor set of low-light test shots, and DPR is at fault here.

I have complete ZERO interest in this camera, but look at those low light shots. Almost all have negative EV dialed in. The guitarist shot has -2.33!!! What camera is going to do well in low light with a -2.33 EV? Also, these could be dialed in for high NR.

Again, I have no interest in this camera, but it seems to me the low light sample shots are like HUH???

Reason for dialing in neg EV is that you wish the image to reflect the mood, the darkness. Otherwise it will try to brighten up the scene and that would look bad.
dialing in -EV gives you an better shutter speed as well and can keep high iso down.

In reply to:

chlamchowder: The price seems a little steep - you could get a 80-200/2.8 AF-S or Sigma 70-200/2.8 OS for a couple hundred dollars less. The old 70-210mm f/4 costs about $200.

So unless you really want a light lens with VR, there are some cheaper alternatives that are very attractive.

The sigma 70-200 f2.8 OS HSM is NOT as good as the nikon lenses.
I have the new sigma 70-200 OS HSM and it is not in the same league as the nikon versions.

Maxis Gamez: Can't wait to try focusing at f/8 with my 800mm.. Hopefully will be faster than with the 1D MKIV.

Glad Canon Listened!

www.gvisions.org - Bird Photography

To focus at f8 with that lens would require you to mount an 1.4x teleconverter.
As kapanak says, all modern cameras always focus using wide open aperture and stops down first when it is time to take the shot. Regardless if you have setup your camera to take an shot at f8 or f11 or f5.6, the lens will always be used at f5.6 when focusing (the lens we are talking about now).

Alejandro del Pielago: Dear DP: And what about the full review of the Canon EOS-1D X ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

Please, CONNECT you with your readers ! ! ! ! ! !

dholl - Most people doesn´t base their purchase of a camera solely on one review.
So, even if dpreview reviews it, then i guess most people paying those moeny for a camera will check other reviews and more important, TRY THE CAMERA in stores.
If you look at the people on this site, majority of them is not the target audience for an 1Dx or similar model anyway, that goes for the D4 from nikon also.
I guess dpreview have an broader customer base to please and therefore prioritize other cameras first.
