On Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview (1172 comments in total)

Canon bias on dpreview? Never, right? Even though the D750 was announced before the 7D Mark II, the Canon gets a review posted before the Nikon...

I'd love to get one of these, they are super sexy. But looks like this is for Japanese consumers only, no English option... Price is reasonable too, kit with lens is $~2750.00

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

String: Outdated, obsolete, discontinued, whatever it is I will say that the E-M5 is the only digital camera that I don't think I'll ever sell. It's just too damn good looking and handling; a true modern classic. Its the one that made photography fun again (for me). I will eventually replace it (E-M1 successor?) but the E-M5 will always be mine.

I cant say that about any other digital camera I've owned.

I feel the same way about the Nikon Df too. It's a cut above any other digital SLR I've ever owned.

camerosity: The photo of the North Fork Falls is not in Bellevue, it's actually in Newcastle...

yeah you probably drove up from I-90 through Lakemont (in Bellevue). The North Fork Falls are in Newcastle City Limits and part of the old mining town area. And you're right, I don't know why Newcastle doesn't post a sign to tell drivers they are entering Newcastle. Anyway, it's a great trail!

This is awesome. As a Photoshop CS6 user, their Camera Raw plugin just gets better and better. Used to be that Nikon Capture NX2 did a better job with Nikon's closed source .NEF files. But recently I compared CS6 Camera Raw to NX2 and I preferred Camera Raw overall. Nice that they decided to throw a bone to all of us CS6 users for the Nikon D810 too. Though I currently have the D800 I may buy a D810 in a couple of years.

I can't wait until the Museum of Flight raises the necessary funds to build a building over all the planes in the airpark. Apparently they are planning a roof first, then walls later. The original (and very first) Boeing 727-100 is going to be a part of the Airliner Gallery. Too bad the first Boeing jet, the 367-80, was donated to the Smithsonian. I saw it in person in 1994 at Boeing Field, fresh from the paint shop, and have slides of it. At that Flight Fest, we could walk right up to the 367-80 and touch it, walk under it (not easy) and see it from all angles. It was wonderful. The Stratoliner (Clipper Flying Cloud) was there too, unrestored. Amazing.

Jogger: I think they should just leave it as is, with minor repairs to structural issues; if they are looking to create an original replica, then they can just create it from scratch. This is like restoring the roman coliseum to original.

I was a little sorry to see the original fabric in the upstairs lounge replaced with a pattern completely different, however. At least I had a chance to photograph the original fabric before it was removed.

On Nikon 1 V3 stock shortage prompts official apology article (289 comments in total)

I wanted to look at one in a shop a few weeks ago. They had ONE in the box, but I wasn't ready to buy so I didn't ask to see it. I wish they had one on display. Just wanted to see how it felt. I'm still very enthusiastic about the V1 though, having purchased three of them (one new, two refurbished) after the fire sale. Have many Nikkor 1 lenses too, including the 6.7-13mm and the 32mm 1.2. Wonderful optics.

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1575 comments in total)
In reply to:

OceanFroggie: Looks a superb spec. Pity about 36mp, fine for pro's but totally OTT for most leisure users. Having recently returned to SLR with an APS-C sensor I am beginning to regret the size and weight of even that smaller gear, so won't be going FF despite the human desire and draw of this superb looking camera. In the century of higher spec'd 'less is more' gear I don't see a long term future for these large heavy SLRs outside of the pro community. A D300 control layout on a D3300 sized body might 'blow skirts up' more than 35mm sized SLR bodies of yesteryear. I suspect I will end up back in super zoom land or an ultra compact ILC with min 10fps. I'm on a boat this weekend with a bag full of DX lenses, 2 years ago I had a lightweight CB super zoom and got all the shots - why did I not resist the draw of 'gear' and nostalgia my 35m film days of the early 80s. Personally for leisure use 16mp is more than adequate for me.

I carried the D700 around Europe with me for two weeks and it was just 12MP. That being said, I have no issues with 36MP resolution. Storage is cheap and the quality is unsurpassed.

On Nikon 1 V3 First Impressions Review preview (432 comments in total)

Thanks for posting this, dpreview. I'm a lot more excited about this as a possible upgrade from the V1 than I was about the V2, which didn't interest me at all.

Did you know you can shoot lower resolution with the D810? Yes, you can shoot 20MP or even 9MP if you don't need 36MP resolution. I shoot 20MP all the time when I'm taking product shots for online auctions. Quality is still outstanding.

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (689 comments in total)

Really, dpreview?? You completely ignore the Nikon 1 V3, released BEFORE this thing, and you review the Canon first?

How much is Canon been paying you?

Canon G1X et al is a fixed zoom point and shoot. Yawn.

Nikon 1 V3 is a mirrorless SLR camera with adapters for nearly every lens mount out there...

And you ignore it.

Pathetic...

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (451 comments in total)

Hey dpreview! How about a Nikon V3 first impressions review? It's a system camera, not a fixed lens point and shoot like the Canon G1X Mark II. I don't know anyone who liked the G1X, it was a dud at introduction. The Nikon 1 series is much more popular. So...prove to me you don't have a massive Canon bias and review the V3!
