On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2602 comments in total)

Good to know 7D II folks are able to experience what D300 had 7yrs ago, way back in 2007.. yes I am talking about the "iTR capability (Intelligent Tracking and Recognition)"
If the author is talking about face recognition, then Nikon D300 had no problems with this even in low light with my D300 with 51AF/3D focusing.

In reply to:

bzanchet: The Studio shots as Always doesn't mean anything.

Real life are very very diferent.

Remember this is DPReview site. They need to have a baseline to test it across cameras as a standard. what would you recommend in this situation while factoring in all possible variables that need to be considered.

In reply to:

mr.izo: next time include things like canon 17-40, 17 tse, maybe sigma 12-24 etc. you know, things that people actually use for landscape photography..

maybe you realize that the article focused on filters for bulky/protruding lenses with no-filter ring options

On Pentax K-3 Review preview (496 comments in total)

Without even reading the review, I ask all Nikon (and Canon) whiners to get K-3 since this is one awesome camera! Time to move-on/upgrade to this wonderful k-3, and never look back!
PS: Pentax enthusiasts/owners - I am not putting down k-3. I do believe that pentax/samsungs/sony/panasonics give the N and C cameras run for the money when it comes to interesting (for better or worse) feature sets. But you can certainly have our whiney crowds and make them feel at home for ever :)

On Chinese government orders Nikon to stop selling D600 article (228 comments in total)

It is a little too late but good that Nikon got the message. Plus its free advertisement for Nikon.

After the devastating Tsunami Nikon had to rush out cameras and revisit their roadmap, apart from immediately taking care of their employees. It is not an easy task, yet they could have done it a bit better in terms of issue/acknowledgement. My D800E is pretty perfect but the first D800 that I first got was a bit out of focus, which I did exchange after 6weeks.

Of course one now wonders what will happen to grey market China bound D600's! Fixed but new D600 for Sub-1k in ebay maybe?

On Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article (597 comments in total)
In reply to:

Blackraven: Lordy lord! There are a lot of trolls out today! The camera looks great and is extremely-well speced.....new sensor, fast focusing, touch-screen, wifi, articulating LCD, EVF, new lenses......... WOW
Those of us who are keeping up with technology will know that the IQ/sensor size ratio is improving with each generation. The V1 had pretty good IQ that is good enough for most "consumers". It certainly could print 16x24" size prints without any problem. This new sensor will certainly be an improvement on the V2's.
The styling is many many notches above the V2. If the materials and surface finishes matches the high-level of styling then we're talking about a premium product.
There's a good lens choice from regular speed to fast lenses that are small and good to excellent optical-quality.
The price is a little high for me now but i hope this will come down over time. I'm keeping my eye on this one for sure.

Photoman, thanks for coming back as a reminder

In reply to:

saralecaire: Nikon really knows how to milk their customers huh?

D600 with D610, DD4 with D4s, separating that pathetic looking grip which looks like it was supposed to be part of the camera in the first place. Then selling it as an accessory at a premium price.

I'm surprised other companies like Sony or Pentax still aren't able to overtake Nikon.

your kind of canon owners should be more worried about canons outdated sensor and features

Now if they had only used D7100 and a Nikon 80-400mm @400mm f/8 instead of some lower-mp canon.

oh yes a gigapan pro can easily handle both.. and more (I have used it with Sigma 50-500mm)

topstuff: Whats this about Americans not liking small cameras?

It is bizarre. Do Americans think that large = better?

Makes no sense. No sense at all.

Not really. At one point we thought texting was lame - why text when you can call type of attitude.

Then we adopted it and took it to the next level.

In reply to:

Jim F: Barney: The one question that goes unanswered that baffles me is why do these companies refuse to outline what their "roadmap" for near future development is going to be.

Now, maybe that's a naive hypothetical question on my part. That said, it's clear from forum posts that everyone wants to know what's in the pipeline so we can plan our purchases. Wouldn't it make sense that someone is less likely to "jump ship" and change brands to "XXX" if one knew that there was a V3 or a D400 or whatever in the pipeline? I think the majority of users here would be patient enough to wait for something innovative that takes time to develop if they knew a "Dxxx" is in the pipeline. Think of it this way: A lot of us are just sitting on our wallets and will not buy anything at all, waiting for Canon and Nikon to make a move. Almost sounds like a hostage waiting game. Who's going to blink first. This policy of "no comment" is just plain crazy. Sorry about this rant.

Roadmaps are for people working inside the company and not outside people/consumers/competitors to steal/wait/offer.
Unless of course you are a government organization, but even then.

Too many questions on video bored me and probably the Nikon execs - losing precious time in the interview process. Please keep the video questions to Canon execs who somehow get excited that having video will persuade still photographers to buy video cameras.

The last question definitely woke me up. oh well!!

In reply to:

Zeisschen: With the a6000 news just prior to this, it's hard to believe both product pictures are made in the same year 2014. Compared to the modern Sony design this camera just looks like a cheap plastic tool from the 90s.

got raw?
