Excellent B&W, "Down the Alleyway". So much realism

On article Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path (1625 comments in total)

We have the best of both worlds I would imagine. My wife and I own a full frame Canon camera and 2 cropped frame Canon products. An extensive set of Lens for each. So ours is not the dilemma of making a complete "upgrade or switch"

Our dilemma after 18 years of photography is what camera systems to take with us when we go on a shoot. As we grow older in years we both tend to opt for the less heavy systems.....

On article Fujifilm offers silver X-T1 and firmware update (137 comments in total)
In reply to:

SantaFeBill: Why wait until December to release the firmware for the black body to enable the new features? If the features work in the silver body in November, why not make the firmware update available then?
Or will the new features, such as the 1/32,000/sec shutter speed, only be available even on the silver body with the December firmware release? The story doesn't seem clear to me on these points.

I completely agree with your questioning SantaFeBill. I own the black unit. So what is the wait really about?

In reply to:

itsastickup: This camera is so nearly the same as its big brother in essentials, by all accounts, that it seems to me that dpreview has wasted valuable resources doing a full review.

And it's not the first time. Occasionally us bottom feeders complain about the length of time we have to wait; I reckon some management/marketing decisions are the reason for that.

Kudos to management for favouring a photographers camera, however.

C- : Could do less in order to do more.

I too am of the same mind as you. I don't care for over emphasis on objects of desire that really don't deserve the
review time it takes to gather all the info.

From one jolly old grump to another

On article Canon significantly improves EOS 7D with firmware v2 (296 comments in total)
In reply to:

tkbslc: The 7D is still probably the best APS-C SLR on the market. So why release a new model until someone else makes a dangerous competitor? There may be some newer SLR with very slightly better image quality, but nothing comes that close in terms of a total package. I can see why Canon decided to just keep the current one alive for now.

I agree with your comments fully. No reason for this photog to switch out an abundance of Canon equipment for another manufacturer's.

Consider as well, the chance of voiding your LIMITED MAUFACTURERS warranty by doing any self or technically friend administered self modification.

In reply to:

snowboarder: The worst part is the managers who killed that company
over they years still made their millions...

As I am a resident of tha United States and used to work across the highway from one of Kodak's regional film processing locations. I have mixed feeling about the whole fiasco which was Kodak.

FIRST OF ALL - The processing site was leveled and is now part of an official SUPERFUND site. Chemical pollution. If the Japanese who I used to work for across the highway can do the camera thing less expensively and more environmentally
effectively, (though I doubt it) SO BE IT!

On article Digital lo-fi photography - Part 1 (130 comments in total)
In reply to:

larrytusaz: I have seen such images prominent, & I'm sure whether I like them or not. You see this a lot in portraits, as an 87 year old pro photographer said to me recently (he's still shooting & highly in demand by the way), he finds the whole thing "faddish and gimmicky," as if a quality portrait isn't good enough anymore. I tend to agree with him somewhat, although I admit I have been applying such "jazz" to people photos I've taken lately.

And yes, more Apple idolatry. Ugh. Further, I DON'T CARE that the iPhone 4S it the most popular "camera" on Flickr, it isn't a real camera, period. McDonald's may be the most popular fast food establishment in the world, but I wouldn't expect a site or magazine devoted to chefs aspiring to fine cuisine to talk about the golden arches & justify it based on their popularity. If the "lo-fi" look is something to experiment with, though, why not an article on how to do this with your d-SLR images at the PC? That would be FAR more appropriate for here.

I agree with the total BS around entire the notion of " lo-fi" photography. Including most if not the entire range of camera phones. I currently own a camera phone for the business of doing certain real business. THAT'S IT

On article Canon updates EOS 5D Mark II firmware to v2.1.1 (17 comments in total)

Why did it take Canon to realize there was an error with the continuous mode, and then offer a firmware upgrade?
