On Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 Review preview (467 comments in total)
In reply to:

ChaosCloud: One thing that I think is missing from this review: how does the zoom handle?

How long does it take to get from the wide end to tele? Do you find yourself "waiting" for the zoom after you turn the ring? This was my impression with Sony's RX10. Perhaps some more detail on the stepped vs stepless mode.

Is it faster with the lever around the shutter release, or with the ring?

Does the lens retract back to the wide end on shutdown?

Hm, looks like an official, complete Review to me...

Biological_Viewfinder: This review is nothing new at all.

I have purchased Panasonic cameras because of DPR reviews, and EVERY SINGLE TIME I WAS EXTREMELY DISSAPOINTED.

I'm never going to fall for it again.

I've been very satisfied with my LX7 and LX5, and Panny's compact point-and-shoots aren't bad, either.

"Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 compared to Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10"

That's the funniest headline I've ever seen here!

-

I've owned several Panasonic cameras, and I own the Rx10.
The only Panasonic product I have ever liked was a cordless telephone.
Saying a Panasonic anything could even remotely compare to a Sony anything is the most ridiculous thing I've ever read here, and I've read a lot of nonsense.

The only reason I would even take this seriously is if I owned a Panasonic and didn't know any better.

Did you read anything past the headline?

NoCoShutter: The cloud...
What could possibly go wrong?

Oh. This.

So all the creatives (like me) who needed to use Adobe software logins today should all take a paid vacations today. Paid by Adobe, of course. Right, Adobe?

@NetMage- True! But as TypeKit is now a subsidiary of Adobe (and is seamlessly integrated with CC), it all goes back to Adobe anyway. I agree that a grace period should have kicked in, and am now wary of using TypeKit fonts at all... what would happen should I find myself to be *shock* OFFLINE?! Why is it that I can still use Adobe's apps but not their font service?
Indeed I had used the fonts before, and was disappointed that I was "locked out" of using them during the outage.

In reply to:

GaryJP: Adobe have repeatedly claimed that not being able to log in daily will in no way affect your ability to use their software.

If this were a good deal for consumers, it would be an OPTION. There is a reason it is not.

My TypeKit fonts were unavailable during the outage. Not a huge deal, but still seriously uncool.

It just depends. I was able to run my apps just fine, but I had no access to my TypeKit fonts, which kinda sucked because I had to use a font that was "similar" to the one I should have been using but couldn't. Not a big inconvenience, but if someone really depends on a feature that is tied to always being logged in to CC, I can see how it could be a major issue.

Looks as if Sony, Sigma, and Samsung collaborated on the design.

Much better highlight and detail retention than the original jpeg! (Do you have a camera-processed jpeg for comparison?) The shadows, however, are rather more noisy than I would have expected at ISO 100.

In reply to:

deep7: The colour blotches are gone but the noise is worse than the jpeg. Still, 8000 "ISO"...

Notice also the slight difference in color rendition in the stained glass. Overall, though, it's very similar.

In reply to:

Felix11: @DPReview "at well over half the price" did you mean "at considerably less than half the price"?

Or "well under half the price".... I'd love to see some numbers too :)

On Nikon D4s First Impressions Review preview (1047 comments in total)
In reply to:

TrojMacReady: The new jpeg engine appears to control noise better throughout most of the ISO range, but not without a cost: much heavier smudging of details in the green channel. See for example the green detail at the top right/bottom left.

Indeed, chroma noise reduction appears to be more heavy-handed across the board at higher ISOs. Comparing RAW with D4, noise appears to be the same or slightly worse for the D4s, but the JPEGs are rendered cleaner and with less visible chroma noise.

I love the dynamic range in this shot. What is the difference between it and the next one in the gallery?

In reply to:

InTheMist: D4S support! Let the rumors begin.

Besides that, I would love to have a one-click solution to get those lovely Fuji colors out of my Nikon Raw files.

Ditto that. The Nikon profiles are pretty good (compared to Adobe Standard) but these Fuji simulations would be great :)

On CP+ 2014: Hands-on with Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II article (200 comments in total)

To anyone who may have insight, or to future reviewers: I'm interested in the responsiveness of zoom via both toggle and the ring. How quickly can you zoom in and out with each? All I've heard is Engadget's mention of the "speedy zoom toggle." Thanks.

piratejabez: Thanks for these!
I think the titles for the first two images are swapped—the first says "18mm" and the second "55mm" but it should be the other way around. The metadata is correct.

Thanks!
