Roman Korcek: Erm, what will this Tamron have that the award-winning and one third cheaper Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 does not have? Is it just about the image stabilization? Or those 3mm at the wide end? What am I missing?

No need to be rude, it was an honest question.

Ramjager: Let me guess if it was a Canon camera from DPR's perspective it would be another nail in the coffin.
Instead it's Nikon but hey it's ok...
Let me guess who is paying the bills..

Either the Rothschilds or Fuji.

On Budget X: Hands-on with Fujifilm's new X-A2 article (154 comments in total)
In reply to:

Manizkrishnan: I sold my X-A1 with XC 16-50 lens for $250. X-A1 was the best entry level camera i have ever used. It was far better than Olympus E-PL5 and Sony A5000 in terms of IQ and handling. But no EVF or Adding one was deal breaker for me. Bought X-E1 with XF 18-55 and kept XC 50-230 lens from the X-A1 bundle. But I still miss punchy JPEGs from X-A1 :(

Well, in all fairness, neither the E-PL5 nor tha a5000 have EVF's.

norman shearer: Blimey, this camera is about as exciting as a firmware update!

Sony must be gutted - who's gonna buy an A6000 now. ;-)

Guys, you realize the OP was joking, right?

In reply to:

Roman Korcek: "The lenses [...] will be available in [...] MFT mounts initially, with the company promising [...] Micro Four Thirds at a later date."

I assume this is a typo or am I missing something?

In addition to the MFT and Micro Four Thirds mounts?

On BPG image format aims to replace JPEGs article (206 comments in total)
In reply to:

arqomx: I thought PNG was supposed to be the JPG killer..

Nope, PNG was never meant to do that as PNG is lossless. PNG was supposed to be the GIF killer.

(For anyone interested, I have created a)

Simple AutoHotkey BPG Viewer

Download the BPG package from the link in the article.
Extract the bpgdec8b.js file.
Download my AHK script from http://pastebin.com/HUCbcS2e .
Put both the script and the bpgdec8b.js file into a folder.
Associate BPG files with the AutoHotkey script.

Voila, upon clicking a BPG file a browser will open showing the BPG image.

On ShareGrid offers peer-to-peer gear rental article (32 comments in total)

"ShareGrid passes the payment along from renter to owner once the rental is complete and everything checks out."

So if my gear gets back broken I don't get paid for the rental?

On Behind the Shot: Dali's Dream article (101 comments in total)
In reply to:

JoEick: I want to know which of these 2 things are most true:

A. DPR allows paid advertisements loosely disguised as articles.

B. DPR staff can't find better or more variety of photographers for these "behind the shot" segments.

Erez is a good photographer, but still has a very long way to go to match the skills of even many amateur photographers. DPR has good writers too. But these articles have no place on the front page without some disclaimers about why they are there.

It's obvious to only a small fraction of us readers who can clearly see this, so maybe I just answered my own question. :)

Is there a specific way I can worship you o chosen ones?

In reply to:

Shiranai: Whats the difference between using this or just using a normal LED video light from say Yongnuo with 291 more LEDs and at the same time 12 times cheaper?
And don't tell me the only difference is, that it "flashes" instead of being permanently on.

First, the camera is set to a long exposure, so there is no problem in taking the picture "at exactly the time the flash illuminates the subject".
Second, how can you freeze high-speed motion with permanent lights? You probably won't be able to dial 1/2,000,000s on any camera anytime soon.

On Enthusiast mirrorless camera roundup (2014) article (304 comments in total)
In reply to:

CarlosMP: The main thing this article proves is how expensive these cameras are compared to APS-C Canikon DSLR's and Sony Alpha ILC's.

I really want an X-T1 , I fell in love with Fuji with their XQ1 and X-S1, but its not twice as good as a A6000.

And M43 camera prices are baffling.

You mean like the 300 € for the Olympus E-PM2 with kit zoom or 440 € for the double zoom kit?

In reply to:

Tripodasaurus: Interesting to see some DPREVIEW readers getting so very excited about which cameras have been incorrectly categorised or excluded, or are best etc.   If they already know so much about the cameras why are they even reading a comparison article of cameras they already know about?!!  Hmm!

To see if the editors got it right, of course.

Mike Ronesia: How is the macro mode on this camera? It could be perfect for an underwater housing.

Or roughly one attoparsec.
