On article 2016 Roundup: $1200-2000 ILCs part 2: Full-Frame (346 comments in total)
In reply to:

whakapu: Big surprise.. the one we should buy is..a Sony! Couple of observations on the AF on the Pentax K1 being unsuitable for moving subjects, and this applies to all the cameras dismissed in that way (which would include every camera before a few years ago). If your livelihood depends on getting moving subjects in focus or you find it satisfying to wave a camera in the general direction of some action and hold the shutter down then you need an A6300, D5, D500 etc. If you enjoy a bit of challenge, want to exercise some skill and take satisfaction from getting shots the reviewers say you can't then all other cameras can give you that. There are plenty of people on the Pentax forum posting action shots from their K1s. The other thing about Pentax AF is that it may be the slow physical movement of the lenses that impedes them keeping up with moving subjects. They've just released their first lens with a pulse motor, supposedly up to 8.3 times faster. No doubt there will be more such lenses.

we want a less biased review website...and yours unlikely is biased. the last three months of review shows this.
pixel shift put in the cons for pentax while a plus for the new em2.

and i can go on on on...like all the pretest poorly made by you to show pixel shift was a failure, while YOU were the failure.

like the fact that a camera that cost 1000 dollar less , has tons of feature is considered inferior to another who cost 1000 more and to have all the feature need at least 500 600 dollar more of dongles....

whakapu: Example of what happens when a user buys a camera (K1) without waiting for the review and uses it for something it can't do.

Imagine how much less satisfying those results would have been if he'd used a camera that can do that.

well said from a top of the line sport shooters famous in ll the world like rich it must be clearly true.

lesnapanda: And now Pentax is being punished for the low price. It would clearly be in the top cameras to buy in the highest-end segment, but it simply has a better price tag. My bet would be: a7rii + k1 in the ff cameras without price limit (though there is also Leica)

everything from review to pre review to this show the bias of this website.
k1 is the best camera full frame for under 3500 dollar....if you shoot everything apart sport and wildlife, but from the gallery i see here specialized photographer are minority.
preview put even pixel shift in cons to find something to blame.
they are overpaid bysonyolycanon

In reply to:

Richard Murdey: D610 with 87%/gold vs. "Best overall full-frame" 82,84/silver of the K1, A7ii.

Okay. I guess you are going to finesse that by telling me they are somehow classed different so the scores are not compatible yadda-yadda, but I mean come on: the only reason not to get a D610 in that group is because you already bought a refurbished D750 for $1400 on Black Friday.

poor af is b...it of preview..sure is not on par with the d750 but is no slouch. with fast zoom in single is a s fast as competition..and in continuous is a bit behind..anyway all those camera are not meant for super fast af or fast fps. so anyway they are still limiting for fas shooting.
k1 is superb in any aspect. apart sport and wildlife, is the best camera in the field.

photofisher: Where is the DR testing. Incomplete review. Olympus marketing promised us 1-stop improvement in something. So far no one is seeing a 1 stop improvement in anything.

they didn't publish because it would have hurt their review and show the micro third still has lousy dynamic.

yes:)....the best is that in pentax k1 review if you read well they try to find anything wrong with camera and included tons off " limite" that have nothing to do with camera itself...they even added pixel shift in the cons list ( a feature who transform the k1 in many situation the best camera out there apart medium format for iq). strangely they didn't put the pixel shift in the cons list....how could they do this? olympus pay well advertisement,....organize , like sony, beautiful travel free of expenses:)....pentax instead is dirty stingy..) not pay good and not organize any marketing bi,...it....

jonny1976: what surprise and amazed me evrytime i see this award, i took part in many win sometimes also, is the complete lack of joy.
in the last 10 years every big award has been given to photo and theme who lack joy and happiness, colors.
I'm pretty sure photographer like mccurry in these era would have been completed undiscovered.

well in the sadness of the event it show a beautiful joy made of color and deep eyes....

well i only ask myself and other...in 10 years which of these photo will be remembered by the people or photo enthusiast like, for example, the portrait of the afghan girl of steve mc curry?
i think in 2 months nobody will ever remember the name or kind of photo. the black guy portrait at lest has some good photo tone, but the portrait against the colored backdrop really look made by a phone.
in my opinion a portrait award should most of all show skills in portraiture before being a narrative image...is not editorial or reportage or story award.
the naked woman and photo of surfer again are really abysmal from a technical point of view.
They awarded i think mostly the use of film instead of digital, something that most of critics like cause make them feel a step up from the masses of photographer.
remember the last 3 4 award given by this society and all have pale tone, mediocre lighting, bored subject. i think is a trend they want keep, cause to color will hurt in a british museum.

On article OWC's Thunderbolt 3 Dock adds 13 ports to your MacBook (146 comments in total)

buy a computer that will cost 3500 dollar for the 512gb model...and then have top spend 300 dollar for adding port....i love apple, my 2012 late MacBook Pro is still running amazingly fast for video and photos, an i not see the needs for a new toys, but it must be said that apple was completely wrong in this...i love the idea of future proof connectivity with the fastest memory, something the new windos notebook will not have, but for the moment they should have thought a better solution.

Photo Pete: I must admit that I feel very uncomfortable with drones. A relatively heavy object being flown by someone who need not have any training or safety controls in place?

Even if not flown directly over private property they can provide images which breach what people would normally expect to be private... and I think that is the crux of the matter. It is reasonable to assume you are not acting in privacy if you can be observed by someone from a normally accessible location, it is not reasonable to expect to be observed from above by a drone IMHO.

Personally I think drone operators should have to undergo flight and safety training and the drones be subject to an annual safety check. Any flights in or near occupied areas / private property should have to be authorised in advance. I wouldn't go so far as making this a surveillance permit, but it certainly needs registering.

we live in a world where a guy can fly a commercial airplane against a mountain....and we keep talking about drone ?

babart: Drones intrude on privacy, so I think this a good change. In no way does it impinge on use of drones for many aspects of photography......real estate, landscape, scientific investigation. If a drone appeared over my backyard, unauthorized by myself, I would tempted to shoot it down with a shotgun. Unfortunately that would result in criminal charges for damaging someone else's equipment. Why are there no criminal charges for invading my privacy?

shotgun? you live in a country where everybody has a shotgun and drone are the problems? ahahahaha...

by the way this law prohibit any camera if you not have surveillance permit.

how many cases of drone falling over people or killing people ? zero...

i fly drone from 4 5 years and i'm pretty sure i have covered every aspect of flying and safety....

you live in a world where most of the driver even if trained don't have a clue about driving....so what we do we stay a home?

the last part of your post is already heavily covered by any regulators in the world...flying over house is already prohibited, if not requests and permitted. it involves bing a commercial operator , doing test license medical visit having insurance and all the stuff connected to a commercial activity.

this law prohibit drone even in the artic...it has nothing to do with privacy. is plain stupid and those who agree are plain ignorant.

CameraLabTester: "If you have a legitimate reason for flying drones with cameras, you would not have a problem acquiring a proper LESANSE." - Inspector Jacques Clouseau

.

one thing is a license form being pilot of UAV....is already possible to obtain in many country for those situation considered sensible, like flying over house or people, another to obtain a surveillance certificate....
is already prohibited to fly over houses ...if people do it there is already the instrument to punish them.....this law prohibit andy videography even in remote mountain valley... if they were right with themselves they should have banned the drone from sweden, but i understand that collecting taxes to pay for their big salary is the most important task for any politician.

Debankur Mukherjee: Imagine a time bomb being tied to a drone by a terrorist.......it is dangerous......every country must have control on purchase and use of drones........

by the way....ia free there need a permits and a patent like driver's license to fly this drone...you know the big problem?

regulator and politician first sell to everybody from 14 to 100 these machine with
camera and all...then they make every year different law to block people from filming from above cause regulators understood that this can be dangerous for them, who knows if they have abuse house maybe:),

so first any terrorist will be free to buy any copter he wants and i doubt a crazy men will be stopped by any kind of law...then the regulator block the game with absurd law..

this has nothing to do with regulating. regulation is already there to prevent people flying in inhabited zone and ove people...fly no more than 150 high and 300 meters from controller...it's the same everywhere...
with this regulation simply you can't fly even where there is nothing apart trees if you have a camera attached and no surveillance permit....
