Maybe my monitor is defective, because I can easily see four legs.

On Real-world samples: Sony Alpha 7 II in Kauai article (227 comments in total)
In reply to:

neo_nights: Let's face it: sensor technology has got to a point where you simply CAN'T decide between cameras based on image quality alone. Unless you pixel peep (which is expected from a gear forum, I know), a picture *well taken* with a Canon 1000D and a Sony A7 is negligible for most people's eyes.

So, while those galleries (by 'galleries' I mean: from all the recent cameras that have been posted on DPR) are nice to give SOME idea about a camera, it can't be the decisive factor.

@HowaboutRAW - Well, there are some posts here ditching the image quality of the A7II.
(TBH, I find them a bit "too digital" for my taste. But that's me pixel peeping. I wouldn't mind getting an A7II if someone wanted to give one to me :D)

@ Rinkos: " i doubt a person is buying a dslr based on that ." You almost answered your initial question with this quote.

Exactly what I said: since image quality has been getting "good enough", people won't (or SHOULDN'T) by a camera based on image quality alone. They'll consider a lot of other things, which would include 'worst case scenarios'.

But there's a catch here: I'd guess that a lot of people would buy a camera expecting a 'worst case scenario' and never actually get into one....

mike kobal: lets pretend for a second these photos are master pieces. Then the comments would probably read
"amazing photographer, he could have shot this with any camera, he waited a week to capture that shot, we want to see real life samples ......"
a knowledgeable photographer or enthusiast should be able to draw a few conclusions from looking at these nice and basic samples :)

Short version for what you said: people are never satisfied.

Or, an alternative way: people are just being... people.
:)

"But higher ISOs and better dynamic range is still easier with FF cameras--even ones compressing raws like this Sony A7II."

No doubt. But then those would fall into the "specifics" of each camera, the different things that would, then, make the 'decisive factor' between camera X, Y or Z. Along with handling, focus speed and accuracy, lenses, support and lots of other things.

That is to say: people shouldn't get too hooked up or excited on those 'real-world galleries' here and start praising/bashing the cameras based on what they see here because that represents so little of a camera's true capacity nowadays.

Lenses make a difference, no question.

About High ISO and DR, as much as I agree with you, this is why I said "a picture well taken" (which means also 'on good circumstances'). Given proper lightning, time to compose a shot etc., image quality on APS-C cameras have been "good enough" for quite some time, thankfully.

Mike FL: WRONG:

CORRECT:

"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication" says Da Vinci.

NEXT Please!

There is no *any* reason to looking any photos more for the *reason* above.

"Go to the college, go to the college". Is that all you've learned from your college? Heheheheh! Oh, please!

I think I've made my point very clear and see no reason to argue over who said what first.

Yes, I have completed College education. And your attack is very childish.

Maybe we are discussing different points of views because of different native language backgrounds. But, from MY understanding (if I were to translate that phrase) "someone says something" does not imply that he's the first to say that thing. And like Erick said, maybe da Vinci "stole" that phrase from his local baker.... :p

WHERE in the text is stating that Marsel was the AUTHOR of that quote?

It only states that he says it. He could have heard somewhere else and repeat it as a personal mantra, for instance.

Mescalamba: And I thought Pentax (ehm.. Ricoh) news are boring. Kudos to Nikon beating them..

..or is it a tie?

At least PentaCoh makes the cameras colorful.

People forget that this is a GEAR oriented site. So it's only natural that the photographer mentions the gear he has used.

neo_nights: It's positively amazing that we do not have pictures of: People suffering nor old people from distant villages with their faces oversharpened and over constrasty to makes their wrinkles stand out.

I think that even clichè pictures like #9 are well done and nice to look at.

"They're not a zoo, but for photographers, them and their home are basically treated like one."

Perfect comment!

On Huawei Honor 6 Plus comes with three 8MP cameras post (41 comments in total)
In reply to:

neo_nights: @ Lars "there simply is not enough space unless consumers accept larger/thicker phones."
This is right, but I still don't get this obsession with paper thin smartphones. They are increasing screensize and getting thinner and thinner. Then people complain that they are fragile (obviously!) and battery life is poor (obviously).

I mean, does 2~4mm of extra thickness make THAT much difference for the public?

Personally, I haven't bought the 1020 because its hardware lags a lot behind the competition. When it was released, quad-core processors and FullHD displays were already a standard for high-end smartphones.

Yet the 1020 is 'only' dual core and HD display.

A more plausible reason for the "failure" of the 1020 isn't its form and size but its O.S. There's still a lot of prejudice against Windows Phone. Not to mention 'Microsoft' as a whole.

I'm eagerly waiting for a 1030 (or whatever that will be called) with a more up-to-standards hardware and that great sensor/lens combination :)

@Roadrunner - But that's an interesting topic. Photographers always complain that they aren't well recognized and are (somewhat) underpaid. Complain about clients that always wants to pay the cheapest possible and so on.

And then, when a fellow photographer manages to sell an image for some millions of bucks, photographers get all heated up as well.

So.... what gives? :P

It seems that nothing, ever, is good enough hahahahah.

@chris - That's a huge possibility!

But, you see, I'm not against those subjects. Afterall, there's only a limited amount of things one can photograph.

What bothers me even more is the execution. You wanna take a picture of the Elder of the village? Fine. Does it have to be with a supermacro lens, oversharpened, over contrasty to show every wrinkle he has?
"Ok, he's old, we could easily see that. Don't have to overdo it!"

Yeah, I don't like to criticise much the pictures or the photographers. We like it or not, they have submitted their pictures while we didn't.

But those contests seem to have a "winning formula" and then everyone goes for it. "People from poor villages in the middle of nowhere" is one of those winning formulas.

Even if the pictures themselves are good, the subjects are so beaten to death that it's hard not to give a big *SIGH* when looking at them.
