Marcel: I prefer RED BULL Motor Cross event shots where motorcrossers take dangerious loops and that kind of things.
Btw i notice that the shutterspeed is too high if i see that the spikewheeks are bloody sharp. The should be blurry in order to suggest speed of the rotating wheel. Everything else should be sharp.
I don't need motion blur to indicate that something is moving. I'll leave that failing for the cameras which can't do any better. I want razor sharp stopped action. Speaking for myself of course.
Peter62: The D5 may be fast, but in terms of dynamic range it seems to be a desaster!
Shh, now that Canon has improved its sensor DR, dynamic range isn't so important after all. But really, for a camera that is likely to be used a lot for sports and not shot at the lowest ISO's much or most of the time, it's not an issue at all. Even though it was with the Canon 7D2. :|
"Another sign that this is a true high-end camera is the inclusion of a larger viewfinder. Like previous DX00 class cameras it has 100% coverage but it also offers 1.0x magnification, which is the largest optical viewfinder we can remember seeing in an APS-C camera." Well, it's AS LARGE as the one in the 7D2 - and the 7D before it, 100% and 1x. Saying "largest" tends to be a bit misleading.
That aside, it looks like Nikon has a winner here and they should have gotten it to market a year sooner. I'm not a Nikon user but I think this 'preview' was certainly rather reserved. I think the D500 is pretty impressive.
Mr Low Notes: As I read all the jokers on here bashing Canon as usual I just laugh with Canon as I recall all those white lenses at the Super Bowl....... Yeah, a few might have been other brands white lenses but face it 90+% were probably Canon.
Maybe all those white lenses were on Sony cameras with adapters. :)
The only full frame DSLR with a stabilized sensor... maybe because stabilizing the sensor on a DSLR (instead of the lens) doesn't make a lot of sense unless you LIKE a viewfinder that has nonstop jitters.
Paul905: Which would you choose, Sony a6300 or Fuji X-Pro2 ?
'Coolness factor', LOL. Maybe to another camera geek, at least one who thinks a pro camera says PRO right on it. And what if you couldn't individually select any of of 270-some AF points, would that be a disaster or what? Just another useless spec to argue about and take fanboy pride in.

Really - if you were visiting a friend and he said 'look at these great photos I took' and they were all of animals 'doing it', wouldn't you think that was not so much art as 'peculiar'? I would.
I expect to see numerous insect macros entered with their 'facial expressions'.
Three people felt this was the worst possible baby photo - like it didn't even meet the challenge?
Must only the shadow(s) be visible or can what is causing them be in the shot as well, with the shadow behind them? I have a shot which has a very interesting effect of the shadows behind a couple dozen people but only want to enter if it's acceptable.
I would suggest you not request photos of patients.
shigzeo: Was their walk some sort of protest?
They were protesting fake photos entered as real in contests.
averagjoe: It didn't look like it; I saw them coming from quite a distance. They passed by without looking up, and continued on until out of sight.
Ben O Connor: AMAZING CAPTURE! Another wonder of photography. Its not just art, not always a fantasy... The real itself! It's what happens around you always.
And now that moment is immortal!
Not an amazing capture - a phony photoshopped photo.
Two people had the GALL to give this photo 1/2 star? This is why I think voters should be identified by their votes in these challenges. Congratulations on a really super photo and win.
maksa: The new K-3 II is the best camera for travellers. Thank you Ricoh for absence of such studio gimmicks as Wi-Fi and flash remote control, we don’t need them. Thank you a lot for integrated GPS.
Hope to see Silver and Prestige editions soon.
I would agree with you on that though I'm not a Pentax fan. While I know I don't speak for anyone else, I would find GPS much more useful in the long run than wi-fi. I'm not in a huge hurry to post my photos to the web, but I would like to know for certain exactly where a photo was taken once upon a time when the area has changed, or when I shot the photo on the other side of the world and I'd like to see the place in Google Earth.
zavart: It looks that DP Review Staff is waiting with the review of Pentax K-3II until the other camera makers can do catch up with their products. Then it will be more easy and justifiable to give lower mark to Pentax. Well , what the heck wait another 3 years and You can always say that in comparison to others it was not even worthy of posting on Your website !!! :)
Perhaps Pentax will find a way to elevate their C-AF tracking to somewhere near the others at last.
Beautiful photo of great-looking kids.
Sir Corey of Deane: Marvelous capture, Midwest - you can feel proud of that one! It's pics like this I go for and shows up some of the dross that's been posted here for what it is.
Just a thought: in retaliation for the indignity he suffered, maybe the guy will do a Cronus job on the steer and name him Senzaballi. :-)
Thanks for all the nice words. I was hoping to place well because the shot really nailed the theme about catching someone with a funny expression. I've had a few other challenge entries that I thought were very good and didn't place very well so I'm still a little surprised that this time I finally got a first place. Don't know if the cowboy wanted revenge on the bull but he might not be happy with me, that I caught that look on his face. :)
Cliff Whittaker: I love rodeo and that shot captures the essence.
Thanks Cliff, appreciate the comment.
