  • Replied in Not the case
    That's not the case with the author Roger Cicala. Maybe he's used to seeing it polished? In the comments he states " It is magnesium alloy, as they say, but it’s got quite a different feel to it " ...
  • Replied in Same
    Same here.  Have a DX body but don't own a DX lens.  There are some great DX lens out there...but my FX glass really is good and holds up really well (great build quality and IQ).
  • Replied in Missed
    I missed that.  Thanks.  Makes it harder.  Still think I'd go with the D750.  Pros and Cons
  • Replied in Good Luck
    The practical difference between the D7100 and the D7200 is very very small. IMO, a bigger image quality difference between the D7100 (APS-C) and the D750 (Full Frame)...especially at higher ISO's ...
  • Replied in from DPR
    "There's no denying that the EOS R looks 'crisper' than the 5D Mark IV, but this is due entirely to the use of Canon's new RF 50mm F1.2L lens for this test . With the help of DPR member Jack Hogan ...
  • Replied in Less
    I'd be more worried that prospective buyers might accidentally take this forum seriously (the general product condemnation that follows any new release)  than notice the First Impressions comments :)
  • Replied in Wait
    Wait till the full review is out.  Now you know...so no practical "need"?
  • Replied in not so much
    Maybe....but as we can see, not a practical concern...unless folks start sending there "green" cameras back :)
  • Replied in Agreed
    That's what I was thinking.....so can't think of a good reason why they did it the way they did. Forgot to check settings? Agreed!!
  • Replied in zero
    WBShiftAB set to zero. Looks like it's much better to simply use the RAW files and compare directly, as JACS suggests, and not make any "send it back" decisions based on the DPR OOC JPEG ...
  • Replied in Not really?
    Thanks !  Looks like they set the WB shift to "1" in both the EOS R and 6DII.  Might be how they normalize
  • Replied in Hope
    The 6DII they also used a WBShiftAB of 1. Hoping Carey Rose will clarify
  • Replied in zero
    I that not the in-camera default for picture style standard or should it be "0"?  Thanks
  • Replied in Maybe
    EXIF shows a WBShiftAB 1 WBShiftGM 1 Not sure that's default or should be "0"
  • Replied in shift
    I'm not seeing any shift in the OOC JPEG exif.  OP was looking at the OOC results and I thing DPR was referring to that in there comments also.  Could be wrong
  • Replied in Not really?
    They didn't (looking at the EXIF)...and they used daylight WB and Auto like they do for all cameras I think you may be misunderstanding the results/examples.  Perhaps you mean Canon adjusted their ...
  • Replied in same
    No?  ...as in the OOC JPEG White balance is set manually for the daylight scene, and low light is shot using the default Auto White Balance ...as it is for all cameras. With RAW WB doesn't matter ...
  • Replied in RAW/JPEG?

  • I see what you mean....I think I've done this same idiot mistake before.  And I bet I'll do it again.  Thanks for helping me!
