On Nikon D750 Review preview (1946 comments in total)
In reply to:

smaverickuma: The ultimate solution?

Use a manual focus lens. (Ha!)

I see you've all figured out on the issue, congratulations for the nice unintentional humor, is very encouraging.

On Nikon D750 Review preview (1946 comments in total)

stevez, I replay to you, but I write to all.

If the Sony A7, A7R and A7S are mirrorless cameras ... I can say you that, also these, have this issue, a strong shaped flare!
Instead, Fujifilm X-E1, X-T1 and X-A1 are immune to this kind of issue, and I think that all the others, X Fuji mirrorless could be free of this issue. Also the Pentax K-01 and Olympus EM-1 have not that flare (like D750), even if they are not totaly immune: they have another form of flare.
They produce a purple flare comet form, perpendicular to all the 4 sides in this Olympus, that is probably created by a little frame present around the sensor (a metallic frame that is not enough matte black and that reflect too much), and a flare on 1 side only -the right side when is in landscape orientation- in the Pentax K-01.
This Pentax have an element, not black, but clear metallic on 1 side of the sensor box! I have all these 8 cameras, Sony, Fuji, Pentax and Olympus, I speak for what I can see every time I use them.

stevez: Nicely done DPR. I especially like that you've tested other cameras besides the D750 and found similar results. I remember on rare occasion finding unusual flare even on my D700. Makes me glad I've switched to mirrorless with none of those flare or focus issues.

Mirrorless not mean to have not a flare issue.

In reply to:

D200_4me: Well it seems the "it must be tiny (even if it's so tiny it not as easy to operate) and it must have all the same features as camera x" crowd is still alive and kicking...and complaining, as usual. Probably complaining about something they'd never be interested in buying anyway.

So let me get this straight. Everyone wants a cameras as tiny as a small point and shoot with a 24-500mm f/1.2 zoom lens that retracts into the body so it's pocketable....but the camera still must have all the dials, controls, image quality and functions of a Nikon D4S, otherwise the manufacturer failed completely and is clueless. Is that right?

Not enough for me, might have at least a 21-1200mm f/0.9 and 10-1000000 ISO in a 500g with an expandable and form-variation body. Of course I mean an 1 milion ISO with a near to zero noise, at full 100Mpx resolution sensor with full spectral response variation (including or cutting) from IR to UV.

batmatty: Maybe someday Nikon will release a camera that doesn't need to be serviced every few months. Wishful thinking for 2015!

On my Fuji S1 and S2 (made with Nikon body, years 2000 ...2003) after about 1 year of use, and a few tens of thousands of shots, the shutter mechanism was already broken.

My D600, in addition to the known spots on the sensor has had, after few months of use and about 20000 shots, a fault in the shutter mechanism: the lever that controls the diaphragm was blocked during use and was no longer moving, it was completely blocked. My Nikon D300 is still ok.

Never happened this break-faults on my Canon cameras, 1Ds MKII, 5D, 5DII, 550D and Pentax K5, despite having made tens of thousands of shots with the 550D and hundreds of thousands of shots with all the others.
In return, as downside, the Canon have always had and continue to have the well-known and significant problem of poor sensors, I mean that well known problem (banding-pattern & noise) on the low light side of the histogram, so offering a lot inferior quality than the others, Sony-Nikon, etc.

In reply to:

cosmonaut: Buy Sony be happy.

Sounds good as a slogan.

I have 8 or 9 Sony ... I like a lot something of those cameras, but also hate a lot of other things.
I am not happy at all with them, but i use also them.

In reply to:

Sad Joe: GOOD: Nikon have owned up to poor QA in record time so they have learnt from their mistakes when handling the D600 issue. BAD: The team at Imaging Resource investigated the problem and found that it also occurs - albeit to a lesser degree - in other high-end DSLRs like the Canon EOS-1D X - so don't dare say that DPNEWS isn't fair - they did their best to drag Canon in as well !! VERDICT: NEVER repeat NEVER buy a new Nikon on day one - give it at least a month for issues to surface. Are you reading this possible D5500 buyers ?????

... !!!!!!! reading WHAT Joe ???????????

I would like to see a D760, or D770, or D780, or any other number choosen by Nikon ... but quickly, this year on the market, with a perfect matt black box without any minor reflecting elements when shooting and the T 1/8000 s.
Ok if 24Mp, but would be better with 36Mp sensor.

Full electronic shutter possibility (similar to that one on Sony A7S), IR remote receiver, for the shutter, with 2 sensors (1 on the back and 1 on front) or something of better, as a gem-type sensor, fixed or retractable, on the top of the camera, with full 360° capability, or near to 360°.

Those who expect to have images not weakened/damaged from camera vibrations at any T of exposure, (but usually longer than 1/200 ... 1/100) realize well about the usefulness of these latter 2 functionalities.
Camera on a tripod, or not.

Hubertus B,

this you have expressed here, is a criticism rather naughty, but, sorry DPreview ... I share.

If you could look and read Italian photo magazines, (I think almost all except one: FC), you could see a lot worse and sad situation.
They are often so "efficient" that are ... I say, "able" to publish review of cameras and lenses, that are already present on the market for at least 1 year, sometimes 2 years or more!
And in addition, some are just copies, badly tecnically translated, of foreign magazines.

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 rumored to be out of production article (211 comments in total)
In reply to:

SeeRoy: Pix excellent. Handling abominable.

I agree fully!

It's a little better with Olympus additional power grip (but with it you have more instability and vibrations if placed on the tripod) or something as the RRS L plate with his little grip, but without rubber.

Those hard-mushy small buttons of the 4 ways pad are ridiculous.
Every time, put a strain your patience, even in a confortable studio, not only if you have cold hands outside in the winter.

I do not get why you give this news no-news.
Seems to me that, usually, DPReview don't give this kind of info ...
Boh !?
Few real news lately and want to fill the decrease?

I'm wrong?

Very well!

Now USA have certainly not more excuses to pull out.
Thanks to this innovation, NASA can finally return to the Moon using their historical Hasselblad with this new digital-back

... Go!

On Quick Review: That Steady Thing article (70 comments in total)
In reply to:

Just a Photographer: I've got a Gitzo 1542 carbon tripod. Its light and steady.
No need for a 'FrankenPod'.

If you do not go for very wide views and you are really 'just a photographer' ... a normal tripod can be enough for you.
If you do multiple shots, to create wide panoramas, stitching many shots, and if you like to have in the panorma also the legs of your beloved Gitzo, again, you could be lucky with this steady tripod.

Otherwise not at all!

Even if you do not do so wide, you like to shot only narrower views, but are in an environment that is not a flat table, with no disturbing elements such as the tangled vegetation and wildly scattered rocks, here and there, and the actions for a reposition the tripod - in order to change the framing angle, close to the ground - is a hard action, is a waste-consume time, and at the same time you do not like one leg immortalized in the picture, well, in this case you'll need another device supporting your camera ...

Just to mention some examples.

Simon97,

apart from that it is partially explained by the author, Mike Perlman, but if you know how does the polarizer and watch the position of the sun, watching the shadows, you should understand just why in that large picture below, there are no those functional limitations which you are thinking about.

If you look at the picture with the church, the effect of the polarizer is a little more visible, but not invasive because the action of the polarizer takes place in the middle of the frame and almost certainly because the residual vignetting of the lens in use, partially make up for artificial differences in brightness created by that optic-polarizer group, (not considering also automatic corrections by the camera and manual post development of the digital film, if any are made).

In reply to:

Claudio NC: The most NEW, attractive feature is ... are the 3 slots dedicated to the custom white balance!

Yes, exactly.
I think that it is a typo.
My English say 'settings', not slots that are hardware things, ports, etc.
Is it right?
