On Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 First Impressions Review preview (1282 comments in total)
In reply to:

tmurph: This is going to be my travel camera of choice as well as everyday useage.
I have Pansonic G6 for my main camera and I love it but this FZ1000 ticks all the right do daas for the time when I don't want to schlep all my gear around also, I only shoot in raw and from what I've read it seems to do well in that department.
Well done Panasonic.

Have patience though. Knowing Panasonic the price will halve pretty quickly.

In reply to:

G3User: The demise of photography continues. Now, all the soccer moms don't even have to worry about someone blinking. We are now creating images where the contents never even happened, the truth in photography is over. How sad, you may has well be constructing images with a paint brush, leaving all contents up to the picture creator. Now, given the power of a service like this, it will further decline the number or people hiring paid photographers, why hire someone if I can do it myself and then fix them later. Too bad Dpreview is promoting such a concept. I wish Phil was still in charge here.

You are very naive if you think there was ever truth in photography.

Like many photographers I come here for reviews, not nostalgia.

Digital Photograph Review, the clue's in the name.

On HDR for the Rest of Us article (199 comments in total)

Just think if you used a modern camera with a flip-out screen, you wouldn't have got your feet wet......

I have to agree with most of the comments on here. Yes it's a perfectly capable camera but where's the innovation?

It's expensive and offers nothing that isn't available already from other manufacturers.

In reply to:

ppastoris: To DPReview : a suggestion. Could you guys please post equivalent F-numbers (in terms of DOF and light gathering ability) when you post equivalent focal length numbers? E.g. LX7's 4.7-17.7 F1.4-2.3 is the equivalent of 24-90 F7.2-11.7, not of 24-90 F1.4-2.3; similarly for FZ200 it's either 4.5-108 F2.8 or the equivalent of 25-600 F15.6 in 35mm standard.

Being one of the most influential camera review websites on the Internet you could really help your readers to understand what a lens designed for a smaller than 35mm sensor is actually capable of photographically. Clearly posting the equivalent angle of view (by posting an equivalent focal length) is only half of the story.

"1) I don't know why everything has to be compared to 35mm."

It's for the benefit of us oldies, we need a reference point.......

On Pentax announces K-01 K-mount APS-C mirrorless camera article (875 comments in total)

Decent spec, apart from AF but looks like a toy.

No Raw, no sale for me.

Shame really looks a nice little camera otherwise.

In reply to:

boyd2: Again NO DECENT OPTICAL VIEWFINDER!@$% And this should appeal to DSLR owners? Forget it Canon ...

"Bifocals are irrelevant. They don't change how the camera was designed to be used"

Actually they are not irrelevant, they change the way the camera has to be held and therefore how it is used.

It is very uncomfortable to tip your head back to look at an LCD screen through the "reading" part of your glasses and many people need a viewfinder to use the camera comfortably.

Clearly you don't use Bifocals.

And still Canon can't make a viewfinder that is not partly obscured by the lens at wide angle..........

I was looking forward to this interview but now I'm feeling seasick.

Seriously the iPhone 4S has better video stabilisation than whatever was used for this interview.
