I really liked #5. Are those birds fighting or something?

Also, I know there are several kinds of hummingbird, but I've never seen any with a beak THAT straight.

The Davinator: Cool lightening photo....dont see any wildlife in it.

Did you see the category that photo won?
"Earth's Environment"
And it seems wild enough for me. Unless it was taken in a studio.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II: A professional's opinion article (501 comments in total)
In reply to:

neo_nights: Why are people getting so annoyed that she listed the sensor size as a con? She did note it as a pro as well.

She merely stated the most obvious strenghts and weakness of a cropped sensor. The same kind of argumentos you can find on any forum or topic about Fullframe X Cropped Sensor.

Still....

"Red is a con for blue lovers"

It's a fair opinion to give. She did NOT say "Don't get this because it's red and blue is way waaaay better!". She only said that "For blue lovers, be aware that this is red".

In reply to:

Frontfocus: What a bunch of crap.
A crop sensor is a negative point?!?!?! :

- crop sensor give some more reach. Well a 1.6 X factor is worth thousands of dollars compared to FF if you use longer lenses.
-She likes knowing that her lenses are true to their focal length. I think a real photographers just cares about framing (real time) and are not constantly thinking what focal length the zoomed in/out.

Record voice: well the 5D3 has not option for that either. What is she talking about.

I wouldn't mind to pry her 1DX systems from her hands and they don't have to be cold dead :-)

You didn't read the Positive aspects she listed, did you?

Here, I'll copy & paste for you:
"Cropped sensor is a pro when you need a little more reach on lenses, like a 70-200 in the end zone"

On Flickr introduces Wall Art printing service article (23 comments in total)
In reply to:

steelhead3: Is the shot printed from your downloaded picture in Flickr or can a higher resolution shot be used? I've always printed my own, so am not familiar with send out photos for printing.

Probably it'll use the picture in your account already. If you are concerned about uploading the original sized pic (which would be understandable), you could set it as private. And then delete it after the print is done :)

Samuel Dilworth: I think I watched most of this in the end.

Art Wolfe – there’s an unbridgeable cultural chasm between us, but I still got something from his interview.

Mark Weir – this guy has poise and gravitas and all the more so when he’s in the studio rather than on Skype. An immeasurable asset to Sony. The other reps all had interesting things to say too, especially when they weren’t selling their latest baubles.

Barney – good job, well judged. And I see you’ve worked on your personal style since last year. (Is it okay to say that?) Nice boots. Proof that geeks need not be slobs or grey.

Missed Richard’s lucid clarity.

Missed Simon’s withering big-picture critique of the state of the industry.

By the way, has Shawn gone? He seems to have been replaced by “DPReview Staff” on the site.

Hah! You've tricked us, Barney!

I'll flag you!

Mark Banas: You've got the names of all the photographers to be interviewed, and of the industry reps expected to chatter on about their wares... but what of the all-important list of DPReview staff that will be appearing?
Will Rishi expound on his ultra-macro work?
Will Simon make an appearance in between meetings?
Will Barney stroke his facial hair thoughtfully?
Will Allison be the hand model for a 1Dx?
And what about the coffee??!!?

I might just have to tune in...

Will there be cats? Cats are the most important thing next to coffee.

And this is my last comment on the whole "hands" thing:

In reply to:

Lucas_: Quite interesting article. Anyway, I'd ask: why buy a GX7 if you could buy a Sony A6000...?

Well, they HAD to rush the FE production because there were NONE native fullframe lenses for the fullframe Nexes.

And now that Sony is addressing the biggest criticism (lack of lenses), people complain about lack of "dedicated" APS-C lenses?

Erm....

Let's not forget that you CAN use those FE lenses on the APS-C bodies just perfectly.

In reply to:

samfan: Geez, what's your problem guys, so they asked a fashion designer to make a bag and put a white camera inside it. Big deal. It's just a white camera in a white bag. Something you can buy for your wife as a gift if you you know she doesn't appreciate the standard big black cameras. (And while I don't know SmC's work she's probably known enough that the bag itself would cost as much when bought separately.)

It's not like they had to pull firmware programmers or lens designers from their work on your dreamed out Canon MILC to make this.

I'm really worried about the people who visit and take part into DPR community.

First all that noise against Allison's hands and nails and the 'Hands On Preview', now about a purse.

What's up, guys? Can't you take the idea that there are women among us?
:p

Yeah. A CAMERA BAG! What a ridiculous product! Who would ever even NEED a camera bag?

Real photographers carry their cameras around their necks and fit their lenses in their pants' back pockets!

In reply to:

Nanospeed1: http://andrewvanbeek.com/fuji-x-lenses-and-full-frame/

As the guy below in the discussuion puts it, in DOF & bokeh area, FF advantage is very significant - I actually didn't expect that much difference in favor of FF...even canon at F2.0, expecting similar dof, it has much better bokeh , more blure, more pop, more 3D photo than Fuji at F1.4.... FF rules but sure it is not the holy grail for everyone. Those who want light weight and small equipment at the expense of the indisputable advantages in DOF, bokeh (also high-ISO quality and resolution) may prefer Fuji (and they got it right for sure) but for the most demanding phorographers, full frame is the choice. Actually, that was the reason Nikon finally turned to full frame long time ago too despite their early claims that "APS-C is the future for us"..... ;-).

There's a couple of things that bugs me on this Sensor Size War;

1 - When someone says that a FF sensor is 'more expensive, makes the camera bigger and slower'. Well, yes. But technology evolves. Prices drop. Ten years ago the same was said about APS-C.
I understand that companies have to 'protect' their products, but saying half-baked truths doesn't help;

2 - When people think that one sensor should 'overtake' and exclude another. Of course the bigger sensor the better image quality. But that's not the WHOLE story, of course.
If you are a wild life shooter, that need longer reach, of course an APS-C could be better. A smaller, faster sensor could be better for tracking.
But if you don't need all that reach and speed, FF is the way to go.

Really, photography has lived with that for centuries with different film sizes.

How come we are still having the same discussion?!?

In reply to:

JimBob0: Shigeki, could you tell us why, with all the letters in the alphabet, did you name a mount FE? Which isn't that dissimilar to another brand...

It's amazing how people STILL think that FE is "a new mount"!
There's ONLY ONE "E" MOUNT, PEOPLE!
FE are fullframe compatible lenses, that's all!

I wonder if Nikon users got THAT confused when they split their F-mount into DX and FX.

Direct link | Posted on Sep 25, 2014 at 11:59 UTC

I'm feeling kinda bad for companies like Fuji, Pentax (and even Nikon) that honestly want to stay focused on STILL images but have been "forced" to add video. Not only that, they have to split their resources (human and money) to develop video further.

Also those who were attached to a company hoping for it to develop stills but went the video route instead (I'm looking at you, Sony!) felt a bit disappointed to say the least.

Of course, the more things your camera can do the better.
And I understand that dSLRs and high-end mirrorless have been great for the video crowd mainly for costing a lot less than 'real' camcoders.

But.... that video obsession is getting a bit out of hand.
Specially when you see a hell of a camera like a Canon 7D Mk II and people complain because it doesn't do 4k...... really, people? Really?
