Biological_Viewfinder: I'm gonna give this camera to my little kid. I mean non-stop continuous shooting????? Even a 5yr old can get the shot now!!!

"Here kid, take this"
"It's very heavy."
"Yeah, but that's not important. Do you hear it working?"
"Yes daddy."
"It's taking pictures."
"It is?"
"Yep. Point it at those birds."
....
....
"WOW!!! THIS IS AMAZING!!!! YOU GOT THE SHOT!!!! LOOK AT THIS!!!! AMAZING!!!!"
"Thanks dad."
"No problem. You're a real photographer now. Those mean know-it-alls who frequent DPR were right; all it takes is equipment."

Swing and a miss

As a canon user kudos to Nikon!

Is that RAW?

Artak Hambarian: At the risk of acting as a party pooper, as well as overall liking very much the pictures and the nature captured, let me criticize a bit the time lapse movie and a few pictures: colors seem to me a bit too saturated, to the level of being not natural...

lol,, are you *that* desperate for attention?

Juck: Very nicely shot samples,,, but a 40 year old FL 55mm 1.2 will do the same thing better, for a lot less $

What are you babbling about? FL55 1.2 (all of them) is very glowy until about F2.... so hey,, zip it, lol.

On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1224 comments in total)
In reply to:

AlexisH: Here are the typos I found while reading through:

"that I realized *I* how many photos I had taken" - extra *I*

"but in every day use the 28 MP" - should use everyday

"the NX1 includes some significant compute power" - computing

"as soon as focus is achieved[,] a flurry of AF" - missing comma

"will appear over the the subject and [will] attempt to track it" - missing "will" in second part

"In fact, since being introduced[,] the NX1" - missing comma

"we can't get it to reliably work " - split infinitive, should be "to work reliably"

"of maintaining the connection[,] and conventional Wi-Fi for " - missing comma

"Oddly[,] the installation app" - same

You need a hobby mate.

In reply to:

Juck: They got IBIS tech,, the only thing of value in this old girl,, bailed,,, made a profit,, and still have enough shares for a seat on the board. Nice.

I never said it was identical,,, just that they got the tech from Olympus,, which they did. Fin.

Bravo,, this is great. Would love to have seen a version with just the biker's silhouette against the sky and no strobe (assuming there was enough light for a fast enough shutter speed).

In reply to:

AllOtherNamesTaken: According to Lenstip, the Tamron 15-30 is sharper, 1/3 the price, is stabilized, and has 5 times the warranty:

"When it comes to the duel with the Canon EF 16–35 mm f/2.8L USM II the Tamron wins hands down. The Canon was able to compete successfully only in the frame centre, on the edge of the frame it was definitely worse. Still it is possible to use filters with it, a quite important asset in this class of parameters.

To sum up the boasting of Tamron about the superior quality of their new lens proved to be true. The company managed to present a device which compares favourably with its rivals, is cheaper, has optical stabilization and a 5-year warranty period – it would be difficult not to recommend it. Independent producers have been proving for some time that they are no longer specializing in cheap equivalents of brand name lenses. The Tamron 15-30 mm is an excellent example of that strategy."

You give up 4mm, but you gain alot

Curious to see some more reviews down the road.

"You give up 4mm,"

LOL ,, 11mm is the whole point of this lens.

That slow zoom had better be a hell of a performer for $1000.

On New samples from the Sigma 24mm F1.4 DG HSM Art lens article (230 comments in total)
In reply to:

RichyjV: Looking through some of these I am seeing very sharp in the middle on the faces (same sort of level as my Sigma 35 Art), and pretty sharp in the corners on the stopped down shots (not the level of my Sigma 35, more like a zeiss 21 2.8).

No doubt it will be optimised for testing distance and get very good sharpness scores from the usual range of websites, hopefully it will make a good landscape lens as well, should be a very interesting option, but not expecting it to 'blow out of the water' the competition.

Not sure what pics you're looking at,,, this lens is way sharper than the 35 Art,, none of that terrible 35 Art vignetting either.

On Opinion: Canon EOS 750D and 760D article (318 comments in total)
In reply to:

Intermittentoverexposure: They're both still clunky mirror box machines. Consumers are catching on to systems like the Sony A6000. The newbie at work that asked what to upgrade his Nikon to just switched after I suggested it. He dumped a Nikon D5100, which really isn't much different than the "new" 5500. Once more consumers figure out there's ZERO reason to buy these old clunkers, Canikon will be playing catch-up.

And yet they will sell just fine.

In reply to:

Androole: Honestly, if it's optically as good as the competition, this seems like solid gold. 15mm is already cartoonishly wide, and 11 and 12 are just absurd - this seems like a far more flexible and usable range, and the speed and price are just icing.

Well it's a Tamron,, so it won't be, will it?

In reply to:

Felts: I like the fact that Nikon are making niche products in a crowded market place...
The Df, 58mm 1.4 and now this...

Anyone who doesn't understand the appeal of these three... well, lets just say you're not in that niche!

Yup,, definitely not the last desperate act of an outdated company circling the drain.

And the DF? really? lol

In reply to:

stelioskritikakis: Lots of megapixels, many lenses wont cover them.
Not the ones that are made in last five years

EX. a fast new ultra wide is missing.
A replacement of the 16-35 2.8 II is needed.

Many primes missing too 50 85 135 L and non L

Sorry Stavros, but you have no evidence whatsoever that those lenses will be outresolved by this sensor.

In reply to:

SmilerGrogan: Now that this camera has such a sophisticated metering system why can't Canon engineers change the sensitivity of individual areas of the sensor in response to the light on the scene? In other words, why can't they raise the ISO in the shadowy areas of the scene, lower it for the highlights. That would get rid of the need for HDR and make all the high-dynamic range people happy.

pixel density
