  • Nice detailed, informative, unbiased review as always !
  • Commented on Nikon D3300 Review preview

    Stick this same sensor in a Olympus body with tiny buttons, horrible grip, poor battery life and people will say it's the best thing ever, funny how marketing works on gear heads.

  • Commented on Nikon D3300 Review preview

    People who complain + never have used the product = annoying.

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview

    People rave about Fuji's output, but every sample picture I see doesn't strike me as being anything special, in fact I dare to say very 'average' looking. I know I am missing something here, can...

  • Commented on Pentax K-3 Review preview

    I guess color truly is subjective. I don't own a Pentax, but the colors from the JPEGs in this review are extremely attractive. Dpreview loves Olympus's color response (I'm a former owner of the...

  • Replied in Flame bait
    Yeah most likely the poster is old and sucks, and probably cannot even afford a Mac
  • As an app developer I can tell you it is extremely costly to develop for the Android platform due to fragmentation. Maintaning multiple branches of code is both time consuming and complex. XCode...

  • Be careful in choosing the word "invest" - Olympus and Panasonic are struggling financially and while Nikon has seen better years they are not going anywhere. I would bet the house that...
  • I have owned cameras that actually performed better than cameras scoring better on the DXO charts in terms of color, detail, dynamic range. DXO is a scam and like fad diets, I can't wait for the...

  • Maybe you should quite caring about scores which have absolutely no meaning and actually try the product, no that would be to easy in an age in which we let other people make our decisions for us....

  • You lost all credibility when you gave credit to Nokia's 42 megapixel cell phone camera which is nothing but pure marketing.
  • I used Lightroom for years and after buying my first Mac, I decided to try it. The first thing that surprised me about aperture is how much better images look directly after conversion, whereas...
  • I am not sure I follow, why is this another reason ?

  • I wouldn't say the Nikon 1 can beat Olympus at high ISO, but at lower ISOs in Raw I greatly prefer the Nikon 1 files to my former OMD EM5. Playing with RAW files in Lightroom or Aperture I just...
  • Replied in Yikes no.
    I agree wholeheartedly. I had the OMD EM5: odd color hues, limited highlight dynamic range, poor white balance, etc. One of the most overhyped sensors on the market.
  • Easy answer. We assume that Fuji or Olympus or Panasonic will take the cake, but you need to think about the average consumer and what he/she wants. Fuji/Olympus are catering to enthusiasts,...

  • I don't look at it that way. I believe this is good for Nikon. I think there is a growing trend towards the 1 inch sensor. Sony, Nikon, and now Samsung is aboard.

  • Yes, and people are picking up Nikon J1's left and right due to the firesale which is only helping push recognition of the system. I bought a Nikon J3 on discount and everyone I show it to wants...
