On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III First Impressions Review preview (2970 comments in total)
In reply to:

mauijohn: Finally after a year of hagling sony personels agreed to adapt a 24mm to the wide end of their not so pocketable camera with a price just right with a bright lens through out. But the zoom is a little bit anemic. Why can't they make up to 120mm like canon s110 or longer zoom is beyond me. Just my thought.

@Abrasive - Yes, you are right! This is the main reasons primes are sharper than zooms. But... I'd DARE to say that people who use point and shoots (as good and advanced as some are like the RX) aren't THAT worried about critical image quality anyway. But, in essence, your observation was right.

There are four things here:
1) Zoom range
2) Lens speed
3) Sensor size
4) Pocketability

But you can have only three of them. Make your pick.

You can't compare to the Canon S110 because the RX has a bigger sensor. If it would have a longer/faster lens, it'd be bulkier. And people would complain because it's not pocketable.

neo_nights: Shooting on a FF at F8 clearly brings more detail to the overall picture. Just look at that boat!

Talk about 'sweet spot'!

I disagree with D1N0 but I have the same opinion he has.

In reply to:

quezra: Barnaby, you do realise that you now have to go to Norfolk and Suffolk and shoot all of these images (ok except for the ducks maybe) again in their original locations to give us a before/after series?

Afterall, after finally publishing the Pentax K-3 review all the work on DPReview has become meaningless. You are free to do whatever you want, until the K-4 or Canon 1Ds - Mk V comes along :p

On Get the story behind the photograph article (11 comments in total)

Definetly a book marker!! Excelent site, with excelent interviews!

The only "bad" thing is that most pictures are a bit on the sad/gruesome side. But I do not blame the photographers for those; they are just doing their jobs. News Media and such that prefer to buy those kinda images instead of other ones. Something to think about...

I say it's boring because ALL discussions about ANYthing in Brazil end up being "PT's fault" and blah blah blah.
That's a proper discussion on Economics or Politics sites, forums and message boards. Not on sport, TV, entertainment and everwhere else websites.

Look, I'm not for the WC here as well.

But....
1) It's happening. Complaints should have started seven years ago;
2) Don't start such boring argument here, on a photography site.

"Nice to see the winner's team gets to play with it first ;)"

I doubt it.

But considering how Germany (and Netherlands..... as always) have been playing, they would make good World Champions.

And yes, it's a bit childish to do it here.

@Barney - You have spelled "K-3" wrong!

In reply to:

peevee1: Wait, wasn't A3000+18-55/3.5-5.6 going for like $279? How low are they aiming this thing?

No denying that there is a market for these... things.

But from a company like Sony one would expect SOME standards. Not something like a GE camera.

YES! FINALLY! Finally I've realised where Sony's going to! How como NONE of you realised that before? It's SO obvious!

After Sony failed to beat Canikon on the Pro market, Advanced Amateur market and Entry Level market, they've come up with another strategy (and THIS one WILL take the cake): the most BORING and UNNECESSARY camera market!

If you thought that the Rebels and D3xxx where boring -yearly- upgrades of their former selves, now Sony comes with something sooner than a year, even MORE boring and with features you can't even call "upgrades".

See? That's all part of a bigger plan.

Don't need to thank me :)

(Kodak is awaiting for you, Sony)

In reply to:

samfan: DPR guys, seriously, please. First impression is the exact opposite of a review. Stop calling it that. Don't hunt for clicks this way.

100% Agreed!

This "First Impressions REVIEWS" term is totally silly and unnecessary. Go back to "Previews" (because that's what they are!) and be done wit that.

On Hungarian law bans photos taken without consent article (321 comments in total)
In reply to:

bobbarber: 1) Does the government of Hungary feel this way about surveillance photos they take, or do they not take surveillance photos?

2) I received some attitude like this when I was taking photos in South America. My wife is South American, and I visit often. The narrative goes something like this: "You are a gringo, and taking photos of people (and the ornate interiors of churches, etc.) to sell for millions of dollars in a National Geographic spread." The narrative is believable to them, because they have heard it from their parents, beloved leftist professors, etc. In my case (and I suspect in most people's cases), the narrative was completely false.

I do agree that there is room for concern here, especially when photos may be used for publication. For personal use, I don't see the point. Also, I wonder about the politics here. It took me many years (decades) to realize that the governments in non-U.S. countries (I default to romanticizing them) can be as corrupt as they come (or not).

HHmmm, I see.

In my country (Brazil) I never had this kind of problem. My problems were more of those classic "you cannot use a 'professional' (DSLR) camera here", when trying to make non-paid photoshoots for friends.

Also I didn't encounter any issues in Argentina (Buenos Aires).

Not that I'm a huge street/candid photographer, mind you.
Since I ready too much DPReview and stories like in this News, I'm extra careful while shooting unkwnown people but... at least here, I know it's more of a personal thing and fear than an actual problem.

Thanks for your input. If I ever go to Ecuador I'll be careful there :)

"South America" is a pretty big continent so YMMV.

Where, exactly, in which country, did you find problems?

I can really imagine a day in the office like:

"Hey, dudes, wanna see something cool?"
"Yeah. What?"
"I'll post an unboxing slideshow on the front page!"
"YEEEEEAAAAAAHHHHH"

You guys are naughty :o)

That explains a lot!
