  • It's funny I used to be a canon shooter who was all about the silky smooth noise free look, but recently I have become a Nikon guy who is starting to love the "feel" noise adds to an image. I...

  • Setting the date and time wasnt something I was concerned with at this point. Out of the box most cameras do a pretty damn good job. Canon, Nikon, and Olympus all deliver pretty nice results ...

    I said I wouldn't reply, but since things seem more civil I'll chime in: 1) I'm an open minded individual, user error could have been part of the problem with a few things, I'm always willing to ...

    I am uploaded full size samples directly to my dpreview gallery. Sorry folks, but I purchased the camera from Amazon and have spent over a week with it. I read the manual start to finish and have ...

    I have owned a number of cameras over the years: Olympus OMD EM10, Nikon 1 J4, Canon 6D and  Sony A6000, but I never had a chance to try out Fuji (other than shooting an XE1 years ago for an ...
  • vscd the zone system and bracketing have been replaced by high dynamic range sensors. I am not discounting the technique, but this is like saying people to get up and change channels on their TV...

  • Probably not, Canon is a stubborn company. It's sad when my 1 inch sensor has more dynamic range than my 6D.

  • Created discussions Why is XM1 hard to find
    Seems like out of stock at lots of places, especially the brown and silver.
  • The processor is a generation behind, but in reality I don't see much of a difference in terms of performance or image quality.  The 1 series is already so fast that differences are hard to discern. ...
  • I haven't compared low light focus.
  • Created discussions Just got my Nikon V2
    Got it from Unique Photo for $329.  I already own a J4, 18.5 1.8 and FT1 adapter.  I couldn't pass up on for the price.  Process from Unique Photo was excellent, camera is in perfect condition and ...
  • As these were all adjusted in raw how can we tell how the lens performs in terms of color and contrast and do we even have a true guage on detail etc ?. I would rather see these tests conducted...

  • Personally I don't get the value of video on a camera, I mean it's cool to have but how often do people use it ? A majority of my photog friends don't even use video, heck I was at a photography...

  • The Hogan had noted the differences between the Nikon 1 sensor and m43rds and Sony are closer than one would think, and based on my own testing (owning all three cameras) I came to the same...

  • Hopefully Nikon releases some fast zooms and primes. One of the biggest turn offs for me was the size of Olympus and Fuji pro zooms which defeat the purpose of having a smaller body. I think the...
