RichRMA: Another boring, dull, black, plastic DSLR. Canon is smart. Why not bring out a camera you did all the design work on 10 years ago, think of the savings!

They replaced the entry-level T3 with a camera that has 50% more pixels,,, better ISO performance,, better screen,,, better AF,,, better video. Don't you have anything better to do?

Kevin Purcell: The Sigma claim that the three layers are blue, green and red is just not true. It's marketing BS along with the 39MPx claim.

The probablility of a photon being absorbed in the top layer is highest for the blue, next most light for greenish and least likely for the red but all three do get some absortion in that layer. It's a desaturated bluish cyan.

In the middle layer a lot of the blue has been filtered (but not all) so that middle layer is a desaturated greenish yellow (some blue, some red and mostly green). The bottom layer is orangish red (mostly red, a little green and a very little blue).

To get to real RGB primaries you have to stick these (noisy) signal though a color matrix to remove the crosstalk between the colors (giving even noisier RGB signal out).

This is the major reason for Foeveon sensors poor high ISO performance (noise goes up quicker than you'd expect) and poor color fidelity (because your original primaries aren't very good).

That's the dumbest thing I've heard all day revenant,, and I was just on a NASCAR forum.

On Russian Mother captures atmospheric photos of sons on farm news story (592 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tom Goodman: There is a lot going on here...
1. The mother is no farmer
2. She is, however, a card-carrying sentimentalist
3. The technology involved is completely irrelevant. Do we look at Velasquez' work and say it would have been better had he used acrylics?
4. DPR isn't obligated to stick solely to technical reviews.
5. DPR readers are not obligated to willingly suspend critical faculties because work has digital roots and appears on this site.
In the end, these are forgettable images unlikely to have any enduring value.

lol,, clown.

On Nikon D5300 real-world and test scene samples news story (68 comments in total)
In reply to:

marike6: Lots of daylight samples. Does DPR ever bother to wait for interesting light to go shooting? IQ looks good, but for crying out loud. If I had a job that allowed me to make images with the latest cameras, I would at least wake up early at sunrise or go out late to catch the magic hour. Grab shots in bars and daylight snaps, that's all we ever see with camera after camera.

No offense but since you guys have decided to be hypercritical with no hold barred negativity in your more recent Previews and Reviews, there is no need to beat around the bush. A little effort will go a long way.

Swing and a miss.

On Have Your Say: Best DSLR / SLT of 2013 news story (349 comments in total)
In reply to:

ninja250: I voted for the 70D. My videos are finally in focus 80-90% of the time! I couldn't say that with my other DSLRs. I take my 70D and 6D with me on a shoot with a 24, 40, 70-200 F/4 and am very happy with this set up for both video and stills. The 70D is only $950 now! I paid $1200 and still think it was worth it. The level in the finder is one of the best features that people rarely talk about. I'm a landscape photographer so I use this every shot. I prefer the 6D and 70D combo over my 5DIII since the UI on the cameras and button set up is almost identical.

70D is a fine camera,,, wish the RAW buffer was deeper, then I could dump the POS 7D.

In reply to:

Frank_BR: According to legend, the acronym EOS was created by Canon to represent the Goddess of Dawn. However, the market failure of the EOS M suggests that EOS stands now for End Of Success…

It seems Canon is starting to lose its commercial magic

Wow,, swing and a miss. Based on your astute observations I'm sure this mega corporation that does $25 billion yearly is just going to stop being successful. lol

On Canon announces EOS M2 in Japan news story (616 comments in total)

Wow,, underwhelming. As someone who briefly owned the original M,, it's gonna take more than quicker AF to get me to jump back in.

The blurb from DP mentions that the AF is gonna be 2.3x quicker,,, does that mean 2.3x quicker than the M1 at launch? or 2.3x quicker than the M1 after their big firmware release?

I really wanted to like this camera,, the M1 felt great in the hand,, but I just couldn't get my head around not having a viewfinder,,, and the AI Servo mode was comical ,,, and the images were a bit flat,,, and etc. Stick with my NEX I guess.

On Roger Cicala gives Nikon D610 a clean bill of health news story (91 comments in total)
In reply to:

SteveEBell: Ive had my D600 in twice for repair, first time new shutter, second time they just cleaned it and they said the dust was from external sources.I asked them about how they fixed the shutter in the first place, as I had seen reports of double sided sticky tape being used for the repair. The girl replied this isn't ordinary tape it comes from Nikon in Japan . Gobsmacked at that I've just sent letter's off to Dixons travel( part of curry's) and to Nikon formally asking for either a refund or a replacement D610 Quoting the Sale of goods act 1979 and quality of service act 1979 to Nikon awaiting there response although I can guess what that will be.A letter came back from Nikon the first time I asked and in that letter they said you can use NX2 software to get rid of the spots in my photographs , and that's the best advice Ive received from them. ah well.

What a gigantic waste of time. You're not going to get a refund or a D610.

Don't you have a MENSA meeting to go to?

On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)
In reply to:

f64manray: Why not go truly retro and get rid of the LCD screen on the back of the camera and not allow the user to see his photos until they're loaded into photoshop at home. Now that's photography for the passionate photographer. At least that's how it was when I was a passionate photographer.

This seems more like a cam for modern digital photographers to feel like they're old school. NOT even close boys.

>>Even in film days, you used Polaroids to preview your shots.

Only if you had no idea what you were doing.

In reply to:

T3: I think after the novelty wears off, the DF's "retro"-ness is just going to feel clunky, cluttered, and not so ergonomic. But at least it will get you some attention. Maybe.

Exactly,, this is purely for posers.
