Horshack: Once again dpreview is showing their extreme Sony fanboyism and anti-Pentax bias with these studio samples, as indicated by this 100% crop:

In reply to:

citizenlouie: Well, I want to point out something about copyright comment on the Photo 9. Yes, you do need model release, and it's not misconstrued. That's one of the lessons you learn when you take your photography class (and property release, for that matter). The tabloid is in constant legal fight (and they don't mind paying that if they believe they can earn more money selling the paper or blackmail the celebrity in question. It's not the norm of a proper photography practice!). Let's not forget those people paparazzi shot are "public" figures. Their legal right to their image is much more limited to that of regular individuals like us or the cosplay models. Because court judge would definitely ask how much privacy does the person in the photo expects, and that will affect the outcome of the law suit. Lesson... model release is a yes because it's respectful, if not legal.

Paparazzi shots are taken WITHOUT people's consent!

While for Cosplay, it IS part of cosplaying to be photographed! No one makes a cosplay to wear it in front of the mirror and then put it in the wardrobe again.

You DO need a model release if you are going to use it for commercial purposes (like releasing a book), surely.

For web usage, no you don't need a release. It's a consensual thing, based on goodwill. As such, of course, if the person asks the photographer to remove the picture from his/her website, then that should be done.

Rooru S: no mention of the QX100...it has a 3.5x zoom with a 1.0 Type Sensor too...! and a better bracket to mount it on several types of mobile phones... Perhaps because DPR doesn't want to hurt DxO?

Until some chinese company comes up, buys the DPReview brand and release the DPR Camera.

If DxO can, why DPR can't? Right? I mean..... right?

@Barney - But little did they know; you are actually sponsored by Pentax.

They call me Hans: "I'm an artist, therefore I can charge thousands of dollars for my DIY project."

What bugs me is "Why didn't *I* have this idea first?" I'd even be happy with half of the price!

aris14: Αt the bdsm (before developing social media) times we all wanted small cellphones.
Then came the smartphones and we all got some plates to serve coffee with which we can make a phone call.
Phones had a decent camera 3 to 5 Mp and then up to 8 Mp quite capable for an sm post, allowing an acceptable A4 print even for mags.
It seems they follow the same curve as ultra compacts some 5-5 years ago with a tiny sensor and a zillion Mps.
There is no reason to have zillion Mps for sm nor bigger sensors. There is no need for that except for companies marketeers just for selling phones. Nothing but with that if their phones were good enough to last 2 days heavy use.

@cinesmascope - Now, THAT'S some hardcore s**t!!!

BDSM for Before Developing Social Media goes as good as M_I_L_F for Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Format.

On Hands-on with the Pentax K-3 II article (521 comments in total)
In reply to:

maksa: GPS is a great addition, but I wonder, why I need Wi-Fi? It is useful only for studio work. If someone needs remote control, he/she can take Flucard.

@ badi - Yes, without a doubt when shooting in a studio (indoors or even outdoors) wi-fi will also be very useful!

But I was just referring to those other professionals that do not do tethered shooting and fill their cards with many GBs of pictures. For them a "normal" transfer via card-reader will be much faster so the lack of wi-fi isn't soooooo bad.

Still, even for my un-professional, amateurish shooting, I'd like to have in-built wifi to transfer my photos more easily. Specially when I take only a bunch of pictures.

On Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview (508 comments in total)
In reply to:

Stollen1234: hmm i thought Sony has the best sensors on the market?? then why this new camera is getting only 80%??!!

haha funny Sony

@ hippo84 - Of course there are a lot of other things that one should take into account when looking for/using/reviewing a camera. Most of sensors today are "good enough" (even Canon ones, to be fair) so camera makers have to concentrate on a lot of other features, like the ones you mentioned.

But I've only talked about the sensor because the OP attacked Sony's sensors as being cr*p, which is not the case.

You didn't bother reading ANYthing of the review, did you? If you had, you would've seen that the A77 loses about half stop of light due the translucent mirror. So, it's not a matter of the sensor being good or not.

I guess for professional work, when you take hundreds or even thousands of photos, the wi-fi isn't so useful (transferring files via card-reader would be faster).

BUT, let's say you've just taken a dozen pictures, while you were having a walk, and want to quickly transfer them to your PC. Then in-built wi-fi would be very useful.

In the end, it's better to have an option and NOT use it than not having it at all :)
