On article Lens shootout: Sony RX10 III destroys the competition (435 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jon Stern: DPReview destroyed by writers feeling that it's necessary to create clickbait headlines.

It's not bad journalism. It is influenced journalism. Subconsciously. No matter the source of its origin, in this case it is irrelevant.

Grig: I don't see destruction compared to FZ1000... Sorry... May be good idea to change it to "outperforms" or something like it if you really think so, but not destroys for sure... But to me FZ Leica lens is sharper and less CA... Especially on the sides at F8 at 400mm

C'mon, it's mot just a title, it's a low bread attitude approach that even between candidates mud "exchange" would be avoided.

Too much ado for practically nothing. I don't include Canon which doesn't care about the segment as long its logo serves well.
Considering the pricing of RX III and FZ 1000, I say it's like preferring one $30.000 system to another because of an extra strap and cloth for cleaning lenses.
Mercy!

Back to the days of PS 2.5 when we considered great innovation the adding of a couple filters... Useful for an easy touch, but serious guys would use it as a starting point because in most cases the result will shout that's fake.

Frank in Bridgewater: People who make decisions on the quality, or otherwise, of lenses, cameras, based on sample internet galleries and talk about 12 or 14 or 16 bit color and stuff seem to forget that what you are seeing in a browser are 8 bit jpegs displayed at (probably) 72 dpi (or less).

Well, I am not the Superman, I guess...

Well, at least the opinions of non Canicon et such people, are rather more interesting yet a little boring sometimes, but they are opinions of people who know photography.
More subjects like these DPR....

All these are just right and smart. Mind you that a human eye van reach separating/seeing some 10,000 "colours" in a rather selective/relevant way...

In reply to:

aris14: Three top of their line cams each one aiming in 3 different niche of users. Given what they offer more compared to existing rivals I say that Pentax has a clean advantage overall mainly due its price and specs .

Comprehensive menus are responsible for at least the one fourth of sales of every camera. Like it or not, dear manufacturers, sad but true!

On article Benchmark Performance: Nikon D810 review (1941 comments in total)
In reply to:

aris14: We all know that this cam is great practically in every aspect.
DPR guys please have in mind that if you chose to publish a review, the posting has to be done at most after 3 months after you get the cam in your hands. Lack of personnel is a serious issue, as important and serious as your readers are.

To Barney Britton :
That brings me to the conclusion that there is a lack of know how in content production work flow management. A rather difficult issue for all editorial organizations involving more than only 5 people.

On article Keeping the faith: Pentax K-1 video overview (96 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sports Shooter: who's is young enough to remember the Pentax LX? It had a good lens/accessories system build around it. I fell in love with the K1000 and was seriously thinking to get the LX but then I went for the Canon F1.
The K-1 sounds like a great affordable FF camera but Pentax is lagging behind with the lens system.

MX was my first cam, along with the SMC 50mm/ f 1.4 lens. still works perfectly, the lens is still competitive with today standards.

Nice work. But there is something in the color rendering I don't like, something F-505ish...

Operator: So Pentax call the ISO 64 = ISO 100. Where is the news?
The D810 is already 2 yrs in the field and Pixel shift could be done in post much easier and more effective.

In reply to:

mosc: what's the time like for 4 captures? Are we talking 1 second or 1/10th or 1/100th for a maximum speed shutter 4-some.

The function aims to a niche of photogs and for special purposes or content in given situations. You don't wear gloves if you feel cold and you want to type. You use a heater or whatever to warm your hands.

Workflow guys, workflow is the key word...

In reply to:

Jack Hogan: Well done. I feel however that to fairly compare noise and DR in captures taken in pixel-shift mode with others, one should first stack four captures of the others.

Not familiar with the term workflow I guess...
