On Fujifilm X-T10 First Impressions Review preview (356 comments in total)
In reply to:

Coliban: Really nice little camera, no question. For me, the competitors are, until now, sony a6000 and canon m3. The Canon m3 has the smallest dimension (therefor, the Fuji T, which is, for a second(third) camera with mobile usability.

It´s a pity, that there are, until now, no tests for the Canon M3, so i can only rely on assumptions and interpolations: IF the sensor of this camera (X-T10) is the same as the one used in the Fuji X-Pro1, THEN the IQ of the X-T10 is worse than the IQ of the sony a6000.

Then i saw in the internet a user review on a private side, which stated that the IQ of the Canon M3 is superior to the sony a6000, and that means (assumed that the statement is correct, but the M3 should have the same sensor as the Canon 750, and that IQ is superior) that the IQ of the Fuji X-T10 is much worse than the IQ of the Canon M3.

So, compared with those cameras, i thin i should prefer the Canon M3 (smaller dimensions) over the Fuji X-T10.

Is that correct?

I like the way you're extracting your conclusions

On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1229 comments in total)
In reply to:

gianstam: Samsung NX1 key features (p.1 introduction)
Can output 4:2:0 8-bit 4K video over HDMI

Videography features (p.2 specifications)
Uncompressed 4K output over HDMI (4:2:2)

I suppose that the second is correct.

There is also in p.11
"The NX1 can output 4K 4:2:0 8-bit video over HDMI for capture on an external recorder."

andymuns: All i can say is have look at this.... http://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Compare/Side-by-side/Canon-EOS-7D-Mark-II-versus-Pentax-K-3-versus-Nikon-D7100___977_914_865
A $1800 camera should have a better sensor then Canon Eos 7d Mark II has...

If all you can say is that... then you are in the correct place.
(By the way the vast majority of Pentax users are very intelligent persons. But as always there are exceptions that confirm the rule).

On Richard Franiec offers Canon PowerShot G7 X custom grip article (110 comments in total)
In reply to:

Boky: can this grip help canon, and this camera in particular, produce sharp photos...?

Nick

Are you new to photography? I suppose not.
It's obvious. This is the grip's job. To help user hold the camera steadier and produce sharp photos.

maxnimo: Horrible lens! Probably has plastic elements full of mold and mildew. And full of scratches too. And must be blurry all over. Probably can't even do color and has zero bokeh. Yuck!

But what if I'm wrong? What if this lens performs better than a Leica?

Horrible poster! Probably has mind full of mold. And full of bad humor. And must spreads nonsens. And so on.

But what if I'm wrong? What if this poster performs better than typical poster? I will ban myself

JackM: I wonder if this will force 5D3 prices down. Besides people with a lot of Canon lenses (like me), only a fool would buy a 5D3 now.

You didn't understand that the 5D, original/mkII/mkIII, is a class of its own. It would be a different brand than its sisters. So, be carefull who you're calling fool. (The same thing applies on a few other cameras too).

In reply to:

pixelpushing: Same old 16MP X-Trans sensor? I loved my X100, but this is a fail on Fuji's part, IMO. If it has the same Lightroom RAW issues, I'd have to pass. Where's the 24MP APS-C?

My friend the 24MP APS-C is all arround you. Open your hand and catch one of them

jadmaister2: I'm just wondering which 4 people have already owned, and presumably sold, this camera??

Someone said (for another camera) that he clicked the 'I own it' thinking that he will find an opoinion from people who have it. That does not, ofcourse, change the fact that the camera does not exist
:-)

Jogger: One-inch superzooms will eat up this market... something like the Panasonic FZ1000 or Sony RX10 makes a whole lot more sense.

The truth is that the these two targets (superzoomers and enthusiast) are so different.
I mean that I cannot think of a consumer who would have a dilhema between a FZ1000 and a Fuji XT1/18-135. This or other way.

In reply to:

stevo23: I have to say, the GH4 is soft and ugly compared to the A7s. I'm amazed that this little 12Mp sensor kicks the crap out of the flagship 16Mp Panasonic. I expected the fight to be more or less fair.

What do you mean "this little 12MP SESNSOR"? 16 to 12 Mp isn't huge difference while >4x photo site surface is dramatically larger

marc petzold: OMG..that's sooo.....exciting....zZzZzZzzzZzzzz....

Sorry... Why a photo competition isn't an exciting event? Are you sleeping untill the next BIG hardware announcement? Photography isn't (mainly) about gear but about photos (I beleive so at least).

On Nikon 1 V3 First Impressions Review preview (647 comments in total)
In reply to:

ThomasSwitzerland: With the review and response one can see the unclear direction. This comes from the unclear positioning of the Nikon 1” camera itself.

I have to buy a horrible looking viewfinder to attach loosing a flashpoint. I have to buy a grip to get a decent handling. And completely new lenses for an inferior sensor. What a weird business concept.

I see your point but every system needs time to be mature (see μ4/3). Τthe 1'' sensor becomes better and better. A few years later the Nikon 1 may be a good alternative for telephoto work (small lenses, very good PDAF)

On What is equivalence and why should I care? article (2126 comments in total)

About total light.
So, I have a question to DPReview?
Do the Sony and Nikon FF cameras produce different noise at pixel level when used at different formats for the same sceen?

My point of view: the sensor does not behave as a whole.
The electric signal from each photosite is not affected by the the total light.
Sensor is not a sun light collector (larger surface, more electric power).
Image (and noise and DR) is produced by pixels. Same tecnology and size pixels produce the same results.
So the advandage of the larger sensor appears not because of the more light but because of the more (same sized) pixels or because of the larger pixels (for the same Megapixel sensors).

Very informative article by the way.

In reply to:

Daniel Lauring: Truly revolutionary would be a hybrid SLR/mirrorless. With both Canon and Nikon their live view plays a distant second fiddle. They should make it as good as mirrorless cameras with fast focus and focus peaking.

Ok.
1. Interchangable sensor camera (not Ricoh GXR)
2. Curved sensor for simpler lens design (rumored RX2)
3. Focusing by sensor mooving and not lens mooving
4. and many others that I'm not able to imagine.

As about the "mirrorless features": How can Nikon compare to Panasonic or Olympus in focus speed? P & O have 6 years experience while Nikon has ~0. And so on. There is room for all. Adn time too.

Sorry, you really think that the revolution in camera technology is the SLR/mirrorless hybrid? Don't you have any other ideas?

Direct link | Posted on Jun 28, 2014 at 10:42 UTC

Too low resolution for too small advandage

My friend, your favorite brand announced the NEX system months after the NX system. (And both years after μ4/3 announcement)

In reply to:

bakhtyar kurdi: There is some acceptable pictures there, not great, but most of them are just a snap shots that everyone of us delete hundreds of them because we get embarrassed if someone accidentally saw them. or to clean our hard drives.
I am quite certain that the art of photography is getting worse and worse, not because there is no great artists, but because the media and so called freedom were succeeded to make people believe that there is no difference between beauty and ugly, right or wrong , justice or injustice, there is no black and white anymore, everything is grey.
I know what is your reaction for the above, so please don't tell me : do you want to teach me what is ugly and what is beautiful? do you want to control me and decide for me what is justice and injustice? I am free and I decide for myself , so we are giving away all experiences that we learned from the time of Adam, and mixing everything together, no standards, no worthy values, everyone is a superman,but they still smoke.

"There is some acceptable pictures there"
Are you looking for 'pictures'? You are at the wrong place. And the fault is yours.
Acceptable??? Did you look at them? Did you spend a little time before you make your judgement?
