In reply to:

Hugo808: A usable buffer and a sensor that doesn't ruin the picture when you lift the shadows! Sounds like Nikon has finally released the D7100...

In the bit about using the newer sensor from the D5300.

taktak91: Another spectacular product from Nikon that is incapable of replacing my D300, nor my K-5 II, which I ended up purchasing.
Is Nikon suggesting that I should eventually replace my K-5 II with K-3?
That's fine by me, but I don't know how Nikon can profit from it.

My I suggest you save some money by keeping both of those fine cameras?

Hugo808: I bet that if they offered a version of every camera in their range with a normal sensor instead of the X-trans one they'd prove to be very popular.

Funny isn't it? It's personal taste obviously, but I've been saying on here for years that there's something I really don't like about the way X-trans sensor renders images and to some heavy opposition.

Fuji are missing a trick in not giving us the option of Bayer sensors because the XT-1 body and the lenses are lovely! They'd sell more cameras, we'd get the pics we like and decent video and it saves them money.

What's not to like. I'm starting a campaign for real sensors!

Mike FL: "This image was shot tripod-mounted using high-res mode".

- tripod-mounted. Of course
- In the cave = zero air movement to De-stabilizing the tripod/camera
- Object stone = you know what it means

Do you missing something?

YES?

You edited that 3 times? Have another go....

Amazing photo's.

We really have it easy now eh? No need to prepare our own chemicals to coat our glass slides.

DPReview should maybe do an article on how hard it has been over the years to get the image quality that we take so completely for granted.

It just needs a red dot...

Lovely set of images, they really show off the diversity and colour of the plant kingdom.

I don't know why #8 is drawing so much ire from commenter's, I think it puts the effortlessness of natural beauty in an urban context really well. Nature wins through, simple and effective.

I'd be happy with a portfolio like that! My only complaint is that a lot of them are so unnatural with the animal investigating the camera up close. They are certainly striking but it's an effect I've grown tired of already, like the tilt-shift cityscapes of last season.

The rest are just superb though, I'd leave the ones where the animal has heard the camera focusing in the recycle bin and concentrate on the wild portraits.

Hugo808: Nice bike.

Can't believe you put the camera in your pack without a lens cap though. Tsk.

Phew! Glad to hear it, you'd be setting us a bad example...

tecnoworld: I'd like to see a similar test performed with samsung nx1.

They've already done it. Salmon leaping I think it was.

In reply to:

SnakePlissken: I am disappointed that this does not go up to ISO 1,235,800, what the hell is wrong with Canon? What were they thinking? I can only imagine that they feel that a medium-format equivalent camera is best suited to low ISO and a tripod rather than handheld... When was the last time you saw someone with a Hasselblad or Leaf running around the streets doing handheld grabs in low light? Sorry, I forgot, Canon are the devil incarnate and will be out of business next week.

I thought you were dead.

In reply to:

Mark H B Findlay: Hmm puzzling. How do they do it? What kind of saw would cut a lens neatly in 2? And then the question why? Squillions of quids worth ruined... and it won't actually tell you how good the pics are that these things help you take. Or how good the sandwich tasted, for that matter.

Maybe it's not real glass?

Very amusing, but I expect the transparent Pentax to be in production by Easter. Probably with christmas tree lights inside....
