flysurfer: Okay, let me summarize what I have gathered so far:

You used the old X-Pro1 to eliminate the Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO), you used Capture One to replace Fuji's colors with a dull default conversion, and you turned off RAW metadata based(!) CA correction, distortion correction and devignetting in Capture One (which is all part of the overall lens design). And then you sometimes used shutter speeds without a tripod that sometimes resulted camera shake and blur.

Interesting.

So how "real-world" are these samples after all? Because in my "real world", I certainly use my lenses as intended, with LMO, on a tripod (when necessary), and I certainly don't turn off any lens corrections that are a part of the lens firmware (and stored in the RAW metadata). I also don't use C1's default conversion.

I think RAW processing is obsolete nowadays, especially when using a FUJI camera with the excellent JPG-engine.

I am abolutely NOT impressed.

It seems to me, that the great XF 18-55 WITH(!) OIS is the better choice!

Azurael: "One of the features that really sets the T6s (760D) apart from its cheaper sibling can be seen here, and that's the LCD info display shown above. This is the first Rebel with such a feature"

Err, except the original Rebel (300D). And the XT (350D). It only disappeared on the XTi (400D).

Or does an 'LCD info display' only count if it's on the top plate of a camera?

Yes.

lacikuss: Is this the Sony Sensor?

I agree, dynamic range should really improve! Otherwise Canon is out of the game...

In reply to:

JackM: The T6s's top LCD and rear dial basically make it a XXD class camera. Nice to see features trickling down. I remember when I returned a Rebel so I could save up for a 30D just for the better interface.

The 70D has a severe AF-problem and so it's almost unusable!

Actually the 70D is Canon's worst camera for decades!

In reply to:

bosco1955: Why not going the other way on the ISO....25,50, ?

Dynamic range IS the most important thing in modern day cameras!

In reply to:

matthiasbasler: Se we've seen both the D5500 and the EOS750/760D released now. To be blunt, neither of them makes me want to have them.

I had an EOS 400D, a Nikon D5000 and now the EOS 650D. I just love flip-out displays and the touch screen of the EOS 650D. I also liked the very good image quality compared to compact cameras at their time. What I disliked were focus issues (like the camera usually focusing on the background instead on an animal, happened often with D5000), and the loud "click", especially when doing timelapse photography in quiet environment.

What has changed since then?
1. Ridiculous resolutions (I usually still shoot 8MP and created excellent looking posters from them.) Why 24 or 28MP?
2. Compact cameras offer almost equal image quality under daylight and cost far less.
3. ILC cameras offer 4K video, two times the burst rate, often smaller bodies, faster focus in "live view mode", no loud clicks. (See Panasonic GH4 or Samsung NX500. The GH4 even has built in time lapse mode.)

I agree, but there's one thing ILCEs and DSLMs cannot compete with:

A real optical viewfinder like the ones built in DSLRs!

In reply to:

Tilted Plane: The question does linger--is a $900 camera, without a lens, entry level? The Rebel line seems to beg for a true entry level--in terms of price--without having to buy a 2 or 3 year old model. No?

But the sensor is from 2009...

Direct link | Posted on Feb 6, 2015 at 22:22 UTC

Most important will be wether the dynamic range has been increased or not.

The old Canon 18MP-sensors from 2009 are really outdated today.

Let's hope for the best.

Sounds good!

The NX-500 with most of the features from the NX-1 - maybe I'll wait for this fantastic camera (instead of a DSLR).

In reply to:

DoctorPDA: I note you do a lot of RAW comparisons in the studio comparison. This is good for RAW photo shooters. However, wouldn't JPEG comparison be important for JPEG photos and for video? For example, isn't the JPEG and video noise at higher ISO's better for the 6D vs. D610 (fair comparison)?

@abolit

Today it's not necessary to shoot RAW any longer! In fact, modern in-camera corrections only work in JPG. So, shooting RAW is a waste of time.

In reply to:

Murilo Gomes NT: It's just unbelievable that some people can complain even about a happy holidays post.

Anyway, happy holidays everyone! And guys, like someone have already said, it would be nice seeing some more lens reviews, if possible.

@ThatCamFan: What other religions?

And btw: Do you REALLY think people wishing "Merry Christmas" instead of "happy holidays" are "douchebag facists"?!?

That's ridiculous.

Correct, there weren't "winter celebrations" or something like that.

That's because "happy holidays" is political correctness rubbish!

Merry Christmas, DP Review!

BTW:

There is nothing wrong with Christmas, that's what these days are all about.
I hope to have a "happy holiday" in summer (on a caribean island, or something like that...)

On Samsung Galaxy S5 camera review post (90 comments in total)
In reply to:

Peter62: Sorry, but the Galaxy S4 is BETTER!

Look for yourself at the studio scene image comparison, low light, then look at the coloured, concentric cirlcles !

Another reason not to buy the S5!

I watched almost every detail, to me it seems that the S5 is not better than the S4.

In the lower right corner the S4 is clearly sharper. All in all, it could be a tie.

And the iPhone 5s is better than both Samsungs.

On Nikon 1 V3: Real-world Sample Images article (175 comments in total)

What a major step BACKWARDS for Nikon!

This camera is made for beginners, but costs more than most semi-pro DSLRs!

Nikon, where are you going? Believe me: next year this 1V3 will be sold for € 299 - including the lens!
