Nukunukoo: Now, if Sigma starts offering NX mounts... Nikon will be in trouble. Canon seems to be fighting back in the 4K arena.

My 18-35mm ART is not a Full Frame lens.

Forensic work is one good application. Reflection reduction (NOT elimation) is another useful on, where you reduce the reflection of say, a bride looking out the windows to maintain the focus of attention while creating the mood. I'm not a big fan of polarizing filters as sometimes they affect the global look of a scene. But most importantly, even with my Hoyas, it affects the edge sharpness of my photos. I know a lot say its a waste of time, you just see the smaller picture at the moment.

SmilerGrogan: If Sony make the bulk of sensors, why does DP Review bother testing so many different cameras.

When the same Sony sensor is used in Camera A, B, and C, wouldn't it be more efficient to just test Camera A and extrapolate to the others?

Plus that would free up staff time to review the more interesting and off-beat cameras out there (branch out into medium format cameras or finally review the many Pentaxes that are gathering dust in the equipment closet).

Different cameras and brands handle sensor readouts differently and present different types of compromises between dynamic range, noise and noise profiling, frame rates and noise reduction strategies. In fact, ISO translations also differ even when cameras of the same brand use the same sensor.

Mister Roboto: $2000 for 4 GoPro to produce one crappy video? =D

What can I make with $300 or less? How about Kodak SP360?

I have been using Hero4 arrays for my Wedding videos in 4K. I do agree the quality could be better but there is no question that 4K@24 FPS gives me incredible cinematic grade quality when scaled to 1080 (using Protune Flat and SpeedGrade). The DR could be improved and since the Hero5 will most likely be using Sony's new stacked sensor (1/1.7") as compared to the current size (1/2.3" BSI only). I expect further lower noise and hopefully at least a stop more on DR. What is almost certain is that the Hero5 will offer Cine 4K, UHD 4K@48fps and 60Mbps+ video. Good enough to complement my RX10s and GH4. Can't wait to offer this VR feature in time for my DJI offering!

Essentially, if it only had an AF-ON button, I'd say it would have satisfied many D400 waiters by now.

munro harrap: I am not impressed by the standard of photography I see here at all. On an average day, an average photographer can make this many photographs of this standard, so no prizes from me unfortunately

(sigh) Just because I present things objectively does not a rude make. We have a saying in San Diego (but I'm living in Wales now) "A buls*itter takes their hubris with them by having the last word". I stand corrected by that photo, but really, I mean REALLY, any forum here can post images without the need for galleries. My proof of your argument is written all over by the posters here who are all refuting yours. But I can hold my own. But then, I shant waste time and I will be more than happy to give you your satisfying priveledge of having the last say. It's the least I can do and yes, I take your "manipulative comment" as a complement. I now forever reserve and step aside for your last words. Enjoy it.

Papi61: If it had 4K video, I'd buy it right away. Unfortunately, it will probably take Nikon 2 years to catch up... :(

Sir, you are very wrong with this one. In three years, not two, they will announce 4K that does a whopping 15fps.

You still have not answerred a very simple question: So based on your very subjective opinion, does that Mean that John Moore and the judges at the World Photography Awards are all, by your words, "unemployable" and another of your words, "Incompetent"? I will be on the London's Somerset House this weekend with a colleague and will definitely take interest in this peculiar thought of yours. And please, no quotes, no insults, no condescending tone, and no eloquence, just a simple answer will do, thank you.

I'm beginning to agree with you Munro. Looking at the only photo in YOUR gallery, it does indeed look exactly like how you described the photos of others. In fact, I'm even so dumbstruck as to why you posted that photo at all. It does not tell no story nor does it even convey anything at all. =)

But I see that you are now escaping in the abstract, philosophical and subjective realm, where I rest my case. Good for you. Good for you. I'm sure you and you quotes will inspire you to no end. =)

Besides which part of "Joseph Goebbels staring at the Jewish photographer" did you miss? Considering your claims if extensive teaching and editorial experience...

Also, my citation Is relevant to the debate. You said specifically that a photo must stand on it's own without any title or label else it fails in its, um, purpose.

Lemme help you, just type "Joseph Goebbels Jewish Photo" Google will only show the same pix. I still have several more to cite against your post. The photo with the stare.

That's an irrelevant answer as Google is easily accessible. And by your experienced standard, John Moore and all of the judges of the World Photography Awards are equally unemployable and incompetent as you earlier described. Besides, I'm surprised by your claims of expertise that you don't even know the photo I cited. Curious.

Lebkuchen: Taking pictures of dead people and making money out of it... it's disgusting

Which part of "Life is Art and Art is Life" did you not get? People will inevitably look at such photo as an art form in its core. Such is unavoidable and my statement vaguely defends yours, even at a Tangent.

Yeah. Your extensive experience. Wow. So, just to be clear, the photo I just cited is a fail, yes?

Of course we would much like a single photo that can convey all without words. But just because a photo needs a description to fully portray a message is not a failure. Unpredictable moments cannot always be prepared for capture. In fact if you look at the myriad of Time-Life Photo essays, an incredible number of them still needs a descriptive. And yet most of them are now exhibited worldwide. By your unrealistic standards, the great majority of journalistic takes have failed with the photographers themselves as unemployable incompetents. Wow, truly, wow. Spock out. (awaiting your response)

Nukunukoo: To the judgemental haters: Let's just say that instead of a photo, this was written. And the writing was done so detailed that it even paints an image of surprising accuracy. And let's say that this article was given accolades. Would you still condemn it? It's no different from news or art. It's a powerful message, one that is delivered via sight, just one of our five senses, but tis a message just the same.

Indeed, I do appreciate that powerful picture. "The Migrant Mother" is a very multifaceted message and you perfectly driven the point.

Then images like Joseph Goebbels glaring at the Jewish photographer is a failure. By itself, this multi-acclaimed photo is so unremarkable, but when a single line of caption was placed, an incredibly powerful message filled with sinister emotions and dread suddenly emerges. Silly remarks or not, your statement is still extremely subjective, or must we cite more examples that refute your claim? I have twenty-six plus more historical examples just in case you still feel like the last word. Spock out.

Yes, like the EXACT moment will wait for you. Your comment is extremely subjective at best. But probably one thing I can agree on: Post-processing may be in order.
