On Nikon D750 Review preview (1135 comments in total)
In reply to:

Skulls: D750 does not support UHS-II cards. Only UHS-I. Your buffer test is giving you wrong numbers.

The RAW-Only max. buffer with SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-I 95mb/s is:

16 RAWs, 14bit, FF
30 RAWs, 12bit, FF
---
30 RAWs 14bit, 1.2 crop
74 RAWs 12bit 1.2 crop
---
95 RAWs 14bit, 1.5 crop
100 RAWs 12bit, 1.5 crop
---
In comparison with the D810 - for 10sec. burst D750 takes 22 shots and D810 takes 18.6 shots. The D750 buffer is smaller but it shoots faster after it's full, and you end up with more shots.

I sold the D7000 because of its too small buffer (and ergonomics).
And only shooting events, no sport or BIF ...

On Leica M9 users report sensor corrosion issue article (379 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mike FL: I have great respect to Leica's optical, but the FF sensor M9 is really noisy @ISO.1600 as seen from the DP sample. Again, do not forget it is from a FF sensor camera while you check the sample:

Any thought? Disagree?

Yes, 5years ago it was new, as Kodak CCD have no AA filter ...
and what the point with current news ?

Zapirian: Sony A7 - "No programmable Auto ISO"

What do you mean by programmable auto ISO? I can choose the bottom and top for the auto ISO range on my A7 if that is what you mean?

No,
to be able for instance to chose a rule of minimum speed / focal

R Stacy: Wrong WB. This must have been a quickie in P mode.

It's a gear test !
Shoot in auto AWB so you see how it works.
If you PP, you don't see anymore what the camera give you before you PP !

le_alain: same vertical battery grip ?

GASP, so no compatibility even if it doesn't follow the shape of the new grip ?
and looking at my and around the grip with the 24/70 on it, I don't imagine quite well one more cm

Chenavi: http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/reviewsamples/photos/3038710/?inAlbum=panasonic-lumix-dmc-lx100-samples-gallery

This is NOT the kind of ISO200/F5.6 photo I expected from this camera. Rocks and leaves in the foreground look like an impressionist painting, trees in the background lack any detail. And the camera light metering must be crazy if the user had to compensate by -2(!!) EV to arrive at this result.

pretty good in the center and pretty soft at the edges.
one edge is far, the other at your feet, and the center is where you have focus. You can't have all sharp, or with a smaller sensor !

In reply to:

Dougbm_2: Usual mediocre DPReview images that really tell us little about the camera's capabilities. Sorry but this is such a weak point of this site. I will wait for Steve Huff or some one to show us!

I prefer looking at non PP images, and banal subjects.
I Love Steeve Huff, but his always beatifull pictures say less about the camera.
;)
Ho, 3200ISO is quite good :)

In reply to:

SAERIN: Real-World Samples.

That are almost/preface to a review of a camera.

Certainly, they are not artistic.

Just mundane images.

Please have your photographers staff post some creative work.

if they were artistic, the beauty of the picture will mask the failling of the camera :)

In reply to:

Retzius: They are still "studying demand" for a D300 successor?

translation - if the 7D Mk II does good then we have to make one too, but we are too scared to launch our product first because then some executive in the company would have to commit hari kari if it sells poorly

they missed,
I was waiting too, moved now, as many ..
sorry ...

photoway: Hi,
On my side, as à "Pro" photographer... the D750 is not exactly matching my needs to replace my D700 's
I was hopping to have the D4S sensor in the D800 Body... with all "PRO Specs" packaged inside (like Almost the D700 was in regard to the D3)
(Not need a fragile, flip screen,... but Need a 1/8000 sync and 1/250 (320) flash Sync)

and I need 2 lighter (and cheaper) bodies to carry arround ( than the D4's)
Please Nikon, please....!

On the possible "D400" side, Still Waiting too, for my familly photos to a real good replacement for the D300s

Richard -
(have a look at my new gallery : http://www.photoway.com/photos/

nope

In reply to:

princecody: How does the IQ of this compare to the Fuji X100T? Why no viewfinder built in or included?

repeat it again one more time, and perhaps it will become truth .... :)

On Panasonic unveils Lumix DMC-GM5 with EVF article (46 comments in total)
In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: I would gladly pay $899 for a 12-37mm F1.7-F2.8 M4/3 lens. Luckily they throw in a free camera body with it if you get the LX100. I can’t fathom buying the GM5 over the LX100 unless they also announce that great lens for m4/3s interchangeable lens cameras.

Built-in flash No

should had the include external flash

In reply to:

datiswous: I think not able to use a viewfinder (internal or via add-on) on a system camera kind of sucks, even if 80% of potential buyers won't need it. Even on high-end compacts this becomes kind of standard.

and this OVF as no diopter adjustment despite it's price, unusable ..
