On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1051 comments in total)

Nice camera. However, I must say the latest releases of digital cameras are getting awfully expensive. Even for an admittedly pricey hobby, the cameras and lenses released within the last couple of years really are pushing the boundaries of "affordability" for the amateur or hobbyist.

Ron Poelman: Anyone needing a definition of Art vs Photography

Complete command of the Surreal as a tool.
Enough to make you sell your camera.
As a body of work, it does not get any better than this.

Why would they make me want to sell my camera?

mcshan: Best photos I have ever seen in my lifetime. Should have had a kid staring at a frog.

They are nice family photos no doubt. But the best photos you have ever seen in your lifetime?

Its just dumb that the camera shuts down when you close the viewfinder.

Thats not a "Sony menu glitch", thats just dumb.

On Sony a6000 Review preview (714 comments in total)

"While some people will never step away from a DSLR, the a6000 makes a very strong case for being able to do everything a Nikon D5300 or EOS 700D/Rebel T5i can do, even in terms of autofocus."

Nikon and Canon need to wake up real quick... their intro level DSLR cameras' only real advantage any more is having an optical viewfinder, but the bean counters and marketing folks have turned them in to small dark tunnels that aren't much fun to look through anymore.

TBH, if you are looking for a small but capable camera the mirrorless segment is now offering a better alternative. The pro segment is an entirely different story, but I'm sure that will be targeted soon.

The "studio" landscapes are cool. The rest just look like Instagram selfies or Facebook pictures.

On Leica M Monochrom now available in grayscale (sort of) article (137 comments in total)

IF they made a classic M body with a sensor that could be changed out as sensor tech advances they would have a camera worthy of the cost as it could indeed last a "lifetime" and keep pace with advances in image quality.

Currently, Leica bodies quickly become outdated expensive relics that are not worth your hard earned dollars.

The next firmware update will be hand coded by an old man in a small village in Germany on a TRS-80 with 8 inch floppy drive.

Leica will record a 60 minute video of the entire process.

In reply to:

samfan: I just calculated that if I'd shot a roll of Tri-X every day, and had it developed and scanned, even the mono Leica M would pay for itself in just 18 months (probably sooner if you factor in the cost of a decent film M body).

Buying bulk and developing and scanning yourself - and the M pays for itself much sooner in saved time.

I don't know why are so many people so confused. Film is bloody expensive.

Bro, I saw your gallery, you're no Erwitt or HCB. Your shot are all color shots.. two of them are of Sony cameras.

Canon actually puts this fluorine coating on its sensors to prevent gunk from sticking to the surface.

Nikon, this helps prevent dust and oil spot fiascos... something you might be aware of...

Retzius: The menus and icons on this camera look amazing similar to the menus and icons on the Leica T...

Hmmm

Thats not the point...

It seems pretty clear where Leica sourced their touchscreen and menu system for the Leica T

I guess Microsoft thinks that if they tell us we don't need iPads and MacBooks anymore then we won't buy them...

Sure ok

Nikon now only makes cheap 18-xxx crappy zooms for DX and expensive uber primes for FF.

Still ignoring the DX primes...

Still

Im not sure if these are good cameras or not because Nikon has done such a poor job explaining exactly what the differences are between them.

What is the difference in the 1 series between a J versus a S versus a V?

I guess Nikon wants ME to research it to buy THEIR product.

No thanks.

BTW, these just look like the old Coolpix point and shoot cameras but with a interchangeable lens. Don't they know that the market for those cameras uses cell phones and would never change lenses anyway?
