alexzn: Roby- don't pay attention to people deriding your picture. It's really good and some portion of the people on DOR are jealous, prudish, or both to the point that the only thing that satisfies them are picture of cats or garden flowers. You can find them also discussing rendering of green tones in the latest obscure Raw converter. In truth they should never come near a decent camera because it will be a waste of good equipment.

#1 image is soft core? Really??? Get a life, people, you have no idea what soft core is... Now go back to cat pictures...

Oh, yeah, and to people saying that these photos are all bad- show me what you've got...it's easy to dump on other people s work behind a screen name.

Hi Clint,
Can you please stop responding to HowaboutRAW? He's not worth your time (I've seen your flickr page -- you clearly have proven you have better things to do). I'm tired of getting message reminders about this thread from DPR. Thanks.

On Enthusiast mirrorless camera roundup (2014) article (300 comments in total)
In reply to:

lacikuss: These comparisons should be done based on target market rather than camera technology.

I would like this:

Best Landscape Cameras
Best Sports Cameras
Best Family Cameras
Best Pocketable Cameras
Best Video Cameras
Best Camera under $500
Best Camera under $1000
Best Camera under $1,500

See you're (dpr) still very much focused on product and very little on customer segment. Focus on customer needs and you'll be better off.

Or, in the interest of working with the articles that already exist (so that this is feasible before Christmas), DPR could just apply some additional 'award badges' to each current segment for best (a) video, (b) landscape, (c) family/people, (d) sports/action, (e) portable camera, etc. in category.

On Ten things you need to know about the Sony Alpha 7 II article (264 comments in total)
In reply to:

braisim: It's actually the first sensor stabilisation on a MIRRORLESS full frame camera. All Sony full frame DSLRs and DSLTs have sensor stabilisation. DP Review shows its ignorance of the Sony system (also through its refusal to review the A77 Mark2).

"Barney the Brave" -- that might be your new nickname after jumping into that death metal mosh pit of an A-mount thread!

On a related note, FWIW, IMO, DPR could gain more from applying the content management strategies of 'stack overflow' than that of the buzzfeed bandwagon.

DPR, would have been nice if the 2014 version of this article had a fresh comments section.

I think I speak for all red-blooded men when I say that celebrating the photography of sexually attractive women is "OK"!

Retzius: This week Sony releases the A7II with 5 axis IBIS and Nikon answers with...

wait for it...

The gold edition Df

Pretty much sums up the state of things in Nikon land atm

Seriously though, isn't it about time that Nikon is sold to an electronics company?

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 Review preview (826 comments in total)
In reply to:

Boss of Sony: I thought this was the ideal camera until I realized it was the same size as the A6000 with one of its small lenses on it. A6000 has twice the sensor size, twice the megapixels, and the option of changing lenses, plus it's cheaper.

dx0mark's take on lx100 vs a6000:

In reply to:

everett464: Dang - the hate is strong. Camera folks are weird.

I think many see a persistent problem in the world of photo-based art -- that many people are more focused on the tool rather than the product of the tool. And worse yet, that people aren't just overly focused on the tool but that they are focusing on immaterial or utterly irrelevant aspects of the tools. And that some companies are deliberately taking efforts to maintain the current situation seems like an ultimately counter-productive use of their human resources for the ecosystem as a whole... and this can be upsetting.

Mark Banas: Do I detect a hint of "swirly bokeh?"

I think better looking bokeh would have made this an especially nice photo.

I bet this photo would be really stunning if you crop it to just the core of the yellow & red maple leaf branch + its reflection and maybe like add a black border.

newtonseye: just a massive advert for a course, how much did fro pay for this ?

Simon Joinson, are you, as a member of the DPR staff, stating that the DPR publication found here, "FroKnowsPhoto guide to DSLR video now available" is not an advertisement? That this is not a native ad? For that matter, does DPR have a policy regarding native ads?

In reply to:

mrcultureshock: With all due respect for Fro and DPReview, this tutorial is not news. Give us more reviews and industry news and let Fro sell his own tutorials.

OTOH, If you don't like it, maybe you *should* click on it -- because the comments section is hilarious!

DPR 'articles' like this are like throwing chum in a pool of sharks!

When they do, look at their gallery first.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2702 comments in total)
In reply to:

Joed700: It seems like the Sony Alpha a6000 is the winner here in terms of sharpness and high ISO performance.

The a6000 is quite impressive considering it comes in at under 1/2 the price, has a laundry list of attractive features and is conveniently sized for the casual photographer.

I imagine DPR chose to compare the a6000 against the 70DmkII specifically because the image quality is in fact quite comparable. While the 70DmkII has generally slightly less noise in high ISO RAWs, the a6000 definitely captures slightly better detail at ISO 100 JPEG/RAW.
