On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II Review preview (507 comments in total)
In reply to:

DerekWillmott: Am I the only one who finds a rear screen almost useless in bright outdoor light? If this camera or the Pana GM1 had a good EVF (and either a smaller screen or a little larger size to accommodate it) would not everyone who walks and shoots outside want one? I know I would. Who will be the first manufacturer to sell to every hiker on the planet?

Nope, I know what you mean. That said, even in the brightest light I can usually see enough to compose the shot. Works for me, YMMV. :)

I have this camera. It's pretty terrific. My favorite feature is the articulating screen. Coupling this with its small size and non-threatening appearance makes it the perfect street camera. I typically hold it at chest or waist level and shoot it looking down at the screen. This makes me essentially invisible and able to get great shots. It's easy to get shots 90 degrees left or right of me by turning the camera, and even behind me by holding it to my side and turning it to face back.

My other cam is a Nikon D7000 with a nice array of lenses. Great, but definitely not able to get the same level of candid street shots because it gets noticed. If I had to keep only one? Don't ask! It's like asking me to choose which of my kids is my favorite.

Forgive me. I always forget how hard it is to put makeup on a seabird!

Well, this seems useful and important.

Snarkiness aside, my _personal_ taste is that these would be better with a lot less HDR processing. Subtlety can convey a lot of mood and atmosphere.

imsilly: Is there anything worse then bad HDR processing?

Squishing kittens in a vise while having your balls set on fire and listening to Sammy Davis sing "The Candy Man" on a wobbly 45? Other than that, no, I don't think so.

It's so strange how for a long time, the world was black and white, then suddenly rolled over into terrifyingly overcooked HD.

The corrected one looks better, but it's pretty artificial looking when viewed up close.

In reply to:

Leandros S: Given Nikon's extremely poor track record with its "waterproof" Coolpix AW cameras (AW100, AW110), there may be some hesitation towards this new offering.

I have an AW110. It's never leaked.

It's not "analog" photography. It's film photography. That said, this project is beyond stupid.

Jim Evidon: Finally, a camera that is auto-everything; relieving the photographer even of the burden of actually having to take pictures. Ain't progress wonderful?

All it needs to do now is auto-delete and we are golden.

In reply to:

Falconest174: Bought this to replace the kit lens I had been using on my D7100( So I could sell that lens with the D7000). Does the job quite well. Even used it to shoot a wedding.

Definitely a nice upgrade from the 18-55 Nikon kit lens.

On Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM | C review preview (89 comments in total)

I had its predecessor, and got great shots with it. I sold it because I was simplifying my lens collection...had Nikon, Sigma, Tamron, and Tokina, and standardized on Sigma because their mid-to-high-end lenses are really good, and a good value. They do seem to have intermittent problems with autofocus in Live View on a Nikon camera, but that's no hindrance for me. Nikon body + Sigma lens works for me.
