KodaChrome25: Reddit demographic: as of May 2013, the median Reddit user is male (59%), 25–34 years of age, and is connecting from the United States (68%).

What more needs saying?

It's like being surprised by the DPReview demographic: armchair attorneys, armchair art critics, armchair media critics, and armchair journalists.

designers of armchairs? LOL you win the internets.

EDWARD ARTISTE: the 10-18 would be great on am eos M. heck, the existing 10-22 is well balanced on it.

IS? yes plesase. i wish the 22f2 had it

Sharp enough sounds good, but you can do a image quality compare at the digital picture. Difference is extremely minimal.

It's still not as sharp as it could be.

On Apple to cease development of Aperture article (424 comments in total)

lol screw appl software. They should never, ever ver be counted on in a pro environment. Their track history make adobe look like your best friend.

I was at the apple store the day aperture was released- the presentation was fantastic. one of the best software intros ever.

But, its apple. No communication on where the software was going. Missing features the competition had, not alarmed at all. Apple doesnt react, it just does its thing.

MAcs? awesome. Apple consumer software? Mostly sucks.

On Adobe CC Announcements: What you need to know article (181 comments in total)
In reply to:

Joe Mayer: I must be a dino. I have no interest in manipulating any images on my i-anything. I don't see the point in using Photoshop AND Lightroom. LR is simply PS-lite and if you have PS, the "free" LR is of no use unless you really have poor cataloging skills and need a program to keep track of your stuff. As for the new features of PS, well, Adobe has always introduced new touch-feely stuff to attract people to update. In this case, they are giving it to those subscribed and are trying to tempt the hold-outs. I don't need to blur my photos and selecting according to sharpness is something I don't get. If I have a shot with great bokeh, I want to select the sharp part? Most people want to select the model so they can create fake bokeh. I'm sure there's a use for it but I can't figure any for my use so for those who can, enjoy. The only use I've seen for sharp masking is in the selection of a group of photos where you can immediately see which ones nailed focus.

@joe Mayer

You simply dont know what you are talking about. At all. (Regarding lightroom)

On DxOMark Mobile report: Samsung Galaxy S5 post (79 comments in total)

Oh rly?

Ive been so impressed with the camera on my Note 3 that its damn near replaced my g12. Took great shots of people, places, and things in japan. Af is quick, and i can shoot without any shutter noise or beeping by just pressing the screen.

So if this is better, that awesome. Go samsung.

a1strank: Wow the price of that 10-18mm is unbelievable.. that alone made me want to pick up an sl1 with it and it will still be cheaper than any fx ultrawide lenses LOL

Thats a damn good idea. Cheers to that

As much as i like the 10-22, its definitely not the sharpest lens in the world. In my opinion, IS is always worth it. This thing look small (and kind of cheapish), but thats just speculation until its in our hands.

Ah, I did forget the 11-22 ef-m. Damn i want that lens.

In reply to:

Richard Franiec: It is really refreshing and encouraging to see the smaller player like Sigma to go toe to toe with the legend like Zeiss. For fraction of the price.
I'm watching recent Sigma's unpretentious approach to their new product with awe.

This lens among the other Art Series lenses should serve as a bucket of an ice water on the heads of disillusioned profiteers from major brands.

i wouldn't call it cheap either, but a legacy 1.4 what?

dcperspective: No IS No Sale for me.

You dont NEED IS!!!! <----wtf is this about

The people that complain about others wanting IS in their lenses is simply nonsensical. Any tool that helps get.the.shot is a boon to photographers.

Naturally some people have steadier hands then others- are you goign to tell those people that they are SOL and they should take up another hobby/profession? Cmon.

Try to remember that your particular views are not gospel for others.

In reply to:

Biowizard: This is very "Apple": they did this with their iOS device interface, where first the depracated one of the pins that used to carry analogue audio, giving it a new digital function, and then a couple of years later, when they binned the interface altogether for the new, sleeker "lightning" connector.

A number of third-party add-on companies got badly burned: one, in particular (Blue, who make microphones) had just brought out a high quality stereo mic for the iPhone, complete with free matching recording app. Within weeks, the mic was made obsolete by the change in pin assignment. So Blue continued to work on a Digital mic instead - and just as that was ready, Apple switched to Lightning. Blue have (understandably) gone away in a huff, and have pulled any attempt to produce a mic for iOS, and have stopped developing the app.

The losers are the Users. And Apple, because some of those users will have switched to Android to avoid this kind of crap. Another reason I will stick to Olympus.

I her you on that, but its not really the same thing. Apple has routinely made their hardware- and connectors- smaller and smaller. Thats no surprise. And the software vendor that didn't continue their app is not Apples fault, it likely meant that they didn't have the funds or care to create a newer version. Furthermore, that software continues to work on the model that it was created for still.

This is simply a software lock out. Nikon flipped a switch to block those products.

On Canon announces EOS M2 in Japan article (612 comments in total)
In reply to:

dual12: How many Canon fanboys will fall for this...again?

@dual12

where did you get that info?

Ill say this, this camera focuses better that the POS refurb 6d i got from canon (going back today, being replaced)

Not the fastest Af, but when it hit its accurate as live view in a standard EOS. It absolutely kils with certain lens combos with the Ef adapter. The 50 14, & 10-22 are very balanced with it.

I can only speak for myself, but I dont need to pretend about the focus- learn what it can handle, and use it as such Simple :)

On Rare photos of Rolling Stones emerge from estate sale article (106 comments in total)
In reply to:

grock: I was kind of curious to see this pictures, but I mostly clicked on this article to see all the complaints about this post. And you guys did not disappoint. I never understand who bothers to take the time to write a comment just to say "who cares?" or "this is old news." I know there's no talk of megapixels and dials in these photos, and they're only interesting if you like photography and pop culture history, but if you don't want to look at them, why do you want to comment about how much you don't want to look at them?

i admit i did the same thing. Its sad that this forum community has become so horrible that we've come to expect this.

I do care what other photogs think, but these debbie downers on dpreview mostly make me not even care.

In reply to:

gpsgps: Whrere, oh, where is the tilt and swivel screen, eh?

@guidenet

Stop making a fool of yourself. Is it really that hard for to to grasp the kind of shots that you can take with that twisty thing?

For street photography, a swivel screen is golden. Ive frequently set the camera to the side of me and gotten pictures that would have otherwise not been possible. How about shooting BEHIND you- without walkign backwards? Can you do that with you 5d3? Dont think so.

On Panasonic DMC-GM1 preview (631 comments in total)

I have to say. First impressions "review" makes no sense at all.

I'm sure it will help with metrics and search- but its still pretty nonsensical. Its not a review in any sense of the word, its a PREVIEW.

C'mon DP.

On What just happened?! Looking back on last week article (98 comments in total)
In reply to:

l_d_allan: Seems like much (most?) of the "What just happened?" was DPReview.com making announcements ... a'la pretty much just a pass-through of "Press Releases" from advertisers. Being that much more of a shill for parent Amazon?

Where are the in-depth reviews that DPReview.com "used" to be known for?

* Canon EOS-M ?
* Canon 1D-X ?
* Nikon D4 ?

i think it does.

Regardless of its reception, the EOS m was a major step for Canon. Many of us have been using them for a while, and some things would be nice to know of...like.....

• the quality of the rear screen (first canon body that ive ever managed to get hairline scratches on. wtf?)

• An official DP word on the quality of the 22/f2 for shortcomings, etc.

• the much discussed AF. Even with latest firmware, it can fail on very clear, contrasty subjects. weird.

• etc.

Not sure what the heck could be keeping up a review of any of those old cameras. They cant exactly claim they dont have one...heck they can borrow mine :)

On What just happened?! Looking back on last week article (98 comments in total)

LOL (almost) every noteworthy company named there..

..except CANON.

WTF is up with this company.

Side note- I handled a 70d yesterday for the first time. It has that 'cheap' feeling that anyone who has used a 7d for any amount of time will feel. Its even more of a rebel body than the 60d (because of the tiny size). It has the same flat buttons along the top LCD too- I dont understand why they would make buttons like that.

The touchscreen is still awesome, with fast focus even on a 18-135.

Anyways, here's to waiting on the 7d2....without the cheapo feeling.
