The new Flickr sucks big time.
Thank you for making me smile.
Just a bunch of stuff that I can't say in public... usually heard from politicians. I hope cc doesn't garner business and adobe is forced to eat crow and perhaps get taken over by a more customer oriented company. Or better still, now that Google owns Nik, maybe they will develop a better product than adobe and at reasonable price provide a perpetual license for us photographers. That way I can say adios to adobe.
As others have stated, good bye Adobe. I wish you the worst.
rekky: $224 for a tripod collar? You have got to be kidding me!
Sandy b... these people need to bitch, so why worry about these bitches? LOL...
Haters gonna hate... I am just glad that Nikon is closing the gaps in their lineup. I have the 2.8 and will not get this lens.
codeNsnap: If only the D600 had 51 AF points...39 is perfect for the APS-Cs, but taking a D7000 and shoving a FF into it and not designing the D600 from scratch is why I'm staying away from D600..if it was priced at the rumored $1500-1600 then that's a different story
So just select the 11 points from the menu opitions in the D600 and that problem goes away. It will not be that crowded. Also, more cross type points should be better than one cross type point, imo.
Jogger: Waste of time since these are taken with the kit lens. The limiting factor is the lens not the camera. Not sure why DPR doesnt use the same lens across bodies so that proper comparison can be made. Something like the Zeiss 50/2 Makro can be used on Nikon and Canon bodies. For the m43 cameras they use a macro lens.
Limiting factor is the eye behind the lens, in most cases.
alexst4: Ridiculously overpriced...What do people find so attractive in these dated body designs? a-la retro?Is this nostagia? Back when these boxy designs appeard it was out of necessity, not because it was 'cool'. These designs are not ergonomic to say the least :) This leica even has a screw for a mecanical sutter release, I mean...really?I bet the average age of the buyer is around 70 years old :) and they buy this because thay're rich and this is how they remember a camera should look like... lol
Shigzeo,From what I have read, Leice has a large factory in Portugal where it manufactures a large number of items. I am sure Leica cameras are fine machines and the lenses are probably one of the best out there. However, they are status symbols and fashion statements too. Nothing wrong with that... it is the buyers money that he/she is spending.
VivaLasVegas: Holy smokes......6D just smoked Nikon D4 in low light AF, -3EV vs -2EV. Oh and one more thing, 6D can be customized with tracking, acceleration and deceleration tracking AF sensitivities......D4, D800, and D600 can't!
Can 5d3 and 1dx do those? I think you should ask that question.
le_alain: I want a D700s with just that sensor that's all !! Don't need polycarbontae too, to smalll body, left whell (even if it can be block, which is a plus..) Same confort, solidity as D300 or D700, but with this sensor. I don't want the D800 and his 36 Mpx
Do you realize that the DR of the D600 matches that of D800, at least from ISO 400 as per Bill Claff's calcs. That is superior to that of the D700. Also, you are getting more MPX, if that matters. To me the DR and MPX is a bigger deal but again needs vary between person to person.
VivaLasVegas: 5D3 is the only D700 replacement, it is OKAY to jump ship. You don't have to worry about AF malfunctioning. 5D3's AF is a thundering successes!
Jump if you like banding in your shadows.
Lucas_: I wonder, why not also on Sony A-mount? Well, since Sony already offers the Sony/Zeiss Sonnar T* 135 F1.8 AF and the Sony 135mm f/2.8 Smooth Transition Focus, both fantastic lenses, they saw no need for that one ( although the 2.0 f.l. is interesting ).
Sad Joe... I think you maybe correct. It maybe difficult, if not impossible to tell the difference between images shot of the same subject under same conditions but with different lens brands. The differences may not be evident unless you blow up the image to the size of huge posters and/or pixel peep.
What do I know: Pictures are good for the high ISO and F5.6 in my opinion not that I will ever need or want a lens like this or ever have the $$$ to buy oneThe Sigma 800mm F5.6 is about $9000 I would think Nikon will add a few more $ to that price just because it's Nikon
Nikonrumors is reporting that the lens is priced around $10,200 at a Swiss online store.
Roger's blog is actually fun to read. He usually presents geeky stuff in a way that can be understood easily. I really got a handle on how to read MTF charts after I read his posts.
I like his sense of humor and also appreciate how tech savvy he is.
Mescalamba: Dunno if Im seeing right, but lens used for D3200 seems bit decentered.
I think its pretty good camera, but it needs really good lens. 24 mpix APS-C isnt that easy on lens as 14 mpix.
If you are to believe Nikonrumors, then the Sensor inside the D3200 is made by Nikon.
jnk: I give my score rating of 0% for this DPR review with a copper star instead of bronze.
Maybe a coal star instead of copper. Copper prices are quite high nowadays ;)
Every one is looking for cliched shots. I am glad that he did something different and as the previous poster mentioned they turned out to be successful as art. Successful art has many times been controversial, so this is not the first time.
I think there are some people here in the US who invoke "patriotism" to criticize others when they differ in opinion or it does not meet their stereotypical expectations. I guess they have the freedom of speech to do it. These images are art and the artist has freedom to express himself. There is nothing unAmerican about them. Actually, they are more American than these detractors feel, because they are more creative and emphasizes the freedom of expression that the artist enjoys in the US. Think if it was done for Chinese athletes!!! Remember how the Chinese had a pretty young gal lip synch their national anthem on TV during beijing Olympics because the original singer was a chubby gal but with a golden voice.
I think Klamar did great.
dayum... DPR chickened out!!
So the camera can be advertised for sale on Craig's List as "Bearly Used"! LOL... getting tired of all the bear puns.
micahmedia: ...uh, on the final "Conclusions" page DPR states:
"Relatively slow 4 fps continuous shooting in FX mode (5 fps with optional battery grip)"
This implies that you can get 5fps in FX mode with the MB-D12 and the right batteries--is this really the case? If true, this might change my opinion of the entire camera...
really???? 1 fps will make that much difference in your shooting style?
