DPR has been drinking too much Sony Kool-Aid. :-)

On Samsung NX30 Review preview (404 comments in total)

For comparison, the Canon SL1 /100D DSLR is 8% narrower, 5% shorter, (20% thicker), and weighs 7% less than the Samsung NX30.

So much for the size advantage of mirrorless, at least in this case.

US$999.99 (list price) for a Samsung brand camera? I don't think so.

The pop-up EVF is an interesting idea, but I wonder about its long-term reliability, in terms of continuing to go up and down.

James Pilcher: This is the future with Adobe and any other company that forces you to use "the cloud" in any fashion. Can you say "Office 365?"

Oh, and don't think that Lightroom is going to remain separate from Creative Cloud all that long.

I like Adobe's products, I no longer care for it's business practices and policies.

With Office 365 Home, I think the full office software is on your hard drive, and the cloud document storage is optional.

Even with the introduction of three new models, Nikon can't keep up with the breakneck development speed of Canon's EOS M line. :-)

On Nikon launches S2 1-System mirrorless camera article (73 comments in total)

Listed as currently available on the Nikon USA web site: J1, J2, J3, J4, S1, S2, V1, V2, V3, AW1.

So as Nikon releases the J4, it apparently still has a warehouse full of J1s, among other old models.

Nikon could use some better inventory/model management.

(DSLRs) I think Nikon Red looks much nicer than Canon White.

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (634 comments in total)

US$800 for no viewfinder and a sensor that's smaller than APS-C is a tough sell.

US$1,100 for the camera plus a viewfinder is a tougher sell.

On Sony a6000 First Impressions Review preview (899 comments in total)

With their mediocre-at-best 16-50mm lens, Sony decided that (small) size was more important than quality - a shame.

This camera isn't expensive enough. I'm waiting for a version that's plated in 24 carat gold.

In reply to:

pfzt: USB2? No WiFi? No GPS?

They still don't understand their competition and market.

Nikon understands product differentiation. You don't put every available feature in your bottom-of-the-line DSLR.

On Nikon D3300 Review preview (232 comments in total)

DPR: "Each of these cameras is smaller too, which is a major criteria we hear from camera shoppers again and again."

Again and again, camera shoppers in North America and Europe choose DSLRs, rather than smaller (poor selling) mirrorless cameras. Most people aren't infatuated by a camera's small size. Other factors are much more important. Nikon estimates that they are going to sell 6 million DSLRs this fiscal year.

In reply to:

justmeMN: This may be the only DSLR made that doesn't include Automatic Exposure Bracketing. Even my 2003 Canon G5 compact camera had AEB.

@BarnET: The Nikon D5300 (etc.) has Automatic Exposure Bracketing. By your logic, the D3300 has Nikon's best sensor, and all of Nikon's more expensive DSLRs all have inferior sensors. I don't think so....

On Hands on with the Pentax 645Z article (648 comments in total)

It would be nice if Pentax could find a way to recapture their Glory Years. I don't know what their market share was, but in the Film Era they were a strong, mainstream, brand. Now, they are a fairly obscure brand.

On Ricoh announces medium-format Pentax 645Z article (157 comments in total)
In reply to:

nikanth: Pentamirror viewfinder and not a petaprism viefinder?! Is it because larger viewfinder is anyway brighter and doesnt benefit from pentaprism?

According to Ricoh's web site it has a "trapezoidal prism". http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/products/645z/feature/03.html
