AshMills: So refreshing to see the fabulous work created by readers here, and to get away from the willy-waving Canikon fanboy arguments for a bit.

Sorry sir.

On Nikon D750 flare investigated: Why we're not worried article (358 comments in total)
In reply to:

Robert Marooni: Dear DPREVIEW,

Until today I was you fan, but today you lost me.
This article is just an excuse for a glorified article of a faulty camera. Any of you are working for Nikon department of marketing? Because you just started to sound like them.
And what is worst, everything you wrote until now comes into questioning. That bad was your excuse for a probably paid article you wrote for D750.

Sorry guys, but you are no longer the no1 reference in the review industry.

This is a joke yeah?

In reply to:

AshMills: Id just like a Nikon native mount camera with A7S sensor, a tilt and swivel screen, onboard 4K, silent mode, fast AF. With or without an EVF. Please.

Thanks Sam, I am a full time photographer, I know how a camera works, but many thanks for the insight. Please inform me exactly how removing the mirror and mechanical shutter from D810 and pressing Live View is not a mirrorless camera. I dont care if its "too big" I happen to like big cameras.

Might I also point out that there are plenty of mirrorless nikon mount scientific cameras etc.

There is also a big difference between sh*tting on your own doorstep and realising that everyone else are putting in better doors elsewhere.

And (sorry) say they welded that nikon mount to the A7S, glued a nikon badge on top would I still not be allowed not be allowed a "Nikon mount on a Nikon Mirrorless" ?

I would like proof from the tax man otherwise this never happened.

I would like 4K personally because it could be done without line skipping, allows for useful reframing/steadying control later, and can easily be downscaled.

I never said silent DSLR, I would like a silent FF, Gmount, nikon with EVF.

ozturert: Again, I see a lot of messages like "this is a terrible camera because I don't need it".

"My RX100 III is much smaller than this!"
"My Nikon is lighter and has more megapixels!"
"My camera takes better videos!"
"My camera is..."

Yes your camera is better.

Mine are better, for me.

Wye Photography: Will the real buyer please step forward...

or are you...

a) a Phantom or

b) too embarrassed to confess to spending that amount of (imaginary) money on a print.

I bought it, because I need to learn how to achieve this level of genius. (Marketing genius.)

Deardorff: Taken with a Canon 1DsMkII camera.

Naturally nothing else from any other brand is worth anywhere near what Canon photos are...

I need to know which shoes he was wearing. I am genuinely surprised he used such approachable "low end" gear.

Presumably "Fine Art Photographer" means the same as "Fine Art paper" and "Fine wine"- More expensive, comes in a smart box, only sold through smart outlets, plenty of well-written spiel to sell its virtues and appears basically identical to a product 1/100 the cost, unless you move in the "right" circles.

PS My prints are available from my website, which is myname dot com.

On WaterWeight rethinks the sandbag approach to stability article (78 comments in total)

May only weigh 139g but you do have to carry the water or sand to put in it, unless you mostly work on beaches/sandunes and by rivers.

Another option is a ratcheted spike into the ground. Not reccommended indoors.
