On article Opinion: Do we really need all those buttons and dials? (890 comments in total)
In reply to:

Brendan Delaney: ISO dial (with A option)
Aperture on lens
Speed dial (with A option)
EV compensation dial
Focus ring
shutter release.
ALL you need!

That list could be shortened by removing the exposure comp dial. Exclusive cameras seems to have few buttons (Leica) and Fuji is on the other extreme. Zeiss new camera has some interesting options in navigating settings.

This sounds very reasonable. I find drones intrusive and noisy and for me some kind of identification online would be great. They are already today used to threaten privacy so why not going the other way around too. There are many restrictions in other countries and this is nothing to talk about compared to them.

danelmix: Why? Everyone asks.
Answer. I have a Z7 and a D5 and a Leica M10. And used to own an A7rii. Why do I have a Hasselblad x1d ii? Colors, colors and did I mention colors. All anyone seems to mention is eye focus. In my book when the first thing a photographer asks about is “eye focus” then I’m not talking that photographer very seriously. Yes the camera has its quirks. Like any camera. Z7 af is not reliable, d5 dynamic range is not good , m10 well maybe nothing wrong with that camera 😂. Sony skin tones, not going there.
And did we mention. https://www.dxomark.com/Cameras/Hasselblad/X1D-50c
Oh yeah the sensor! Ah that doesn’t matter. Let’s talk more about that you can buy a Sony for less.
It’s not a Gucci or a Prada. Its not for the kardashians. It’s a photographers camera.
I like how because a camera isn’t blazing fast it’s automatically a “landscape camera”.
Photographers today are like today’s athletes. They are compilers! The more statistics or features the better.

I think the idea is that RAW does not have a colour signature, it is RAW but the software used on PCs can be more or less interpreting the colours the way you want. For example, Fuji has helped adobe to implement their different colour styles. What has been suggested is that you can make your own profile for your camera and it will be saved as template to be used with all your photos while importing, people are really going wild on colour science in RAW but there is none unless you develop the RAW to jpeg in camera.

Jim Kasson here showed that if you shoot RAW you can imitate any colour. It is the raw interpreter that says how the colours will be. While sharpness you can’t reconstruct.

For me the x-pro 1 from Fuji was a true innovation.

(unknown member): Don't hate the player, hate the game.
The anger many people direct at Leica because of their high prices, seems to stem from their own financial impotence. Well, Leica is just using their status in the market place to their advantage. You would do the same.

Direct your strong emotions towards reducing economic inequality, bettering the education system etc. This way it might actually do some good.

50 bucks a year for a Leica invested person is on the error margin for the balance account anyway so no need to be upset. Wrong focus.

In reply to:

(unknown member): This comment got buried down below, so I'm adding it here:

Chris, there's no denying that DPR (not you personally) seem to be pushing Mirrorless, constantly. After so many glowing reviews and analysis of DSLRs over the years, DPR talk about them like they are some archaic device of the past. I think whether or not that is intended, DPR are coming across that way to readers.

Look, I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but the enthusiasm at this point is a bit offensive to the majority of shooters that still like and shoot DSLR's (many often alongside mirrorless). Whether or not my feedback is valuable to you or not isn't up to me. I love you and Jordan alike, but to refer to still modern cameras as "dinosaurs" etc. is a rather dull remark and it doesn't hold up.

I can’t for my life understand that anybody still holds to DSLRs. I had one in the 90’s. It is really a dinosaur from the time you just switched film to sensor but kept the rest of the mechanics. There is no meaning to it 2019. It resembles of the digital tapes used in video cameras before they got completely digitalised.

Interesting but emphasises that I did the right thing not to do this professionally. It must really suck the joy out of it. Fast.

In reply to:

Viggo: Pic #26 and #27; how and why do one screw up the exposure that bad when using an EVF, I see this aaaaall the time when people are posting both raw and JPEG, or edited vs non-edited. It’s just setting oneself up for failure and to show IQ of a camera is the worst thing to do....

I’ve noticed that the EVF is usually much brighter than reality in the default settings. I’ve had quite many shots taken that looks great in the EVF but are underexposed when viewing on the lcd. I don’t bother troo much since it is only a tad adjustment needed in Lightroom. I know the information is there since it looks great in the EVF.

tko: Not sure I believe this. How did it pick the eye color? Reconstruct a pipe that there wasn't a trace of? Know how to add two more windows on the bottom instead of one? Know how to add a nice highlight on the teeth?

Publicity releases are worth zero.

I think they have trained the AI algorithm on his face before. Other images. It is completely doable with media stars. Hence the algorithm knows his face.

rz350: This will be so much lighter on a Sony. Not.

Weight isn’t the real selling point. It is flexibility. You can transform the very same camera from small with tiny lens to hughe with grip and this bokeh monster. That is the neat thing.

M Lammerse: I'm a bit more worried where it will stop. That the US takes such decisions is their choice - fear makes more money than it cost, so lets not forget that in the first place. However the European, Japanese and Korean 'boy scouts' often follow their leader, which gets really ridiculous

Are we not allowed to carry the content of our bladder on board in a couple of years from now? We need to make a lie detector test before going on board?

Fortunately Europe is quite small and it is very easy to travel around by train. 😉

In reply to:

Sid911: Every aspect of the camera is compelling, however, if we are just talking about that LCD screen - If that touchscreen focus is anywhere near that fantastic Canon Dual Pixel, and the menus are sufficiently big enough to be touch and swipe friendly - this is an "ALL ROUNDER" then!

According to this reviewer there is no touch screen on AF at least: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AREGOD7jf2s

Mister Joseph: What a sexy Ethernet port!

In what way is it usable on the field? I could imagine uses in a studio with tethered shooting but how is it used in sports? Seriously curious....

georgehere: I'm waiting for smart drones carrying cameras to appear. They would follow the owner and take pictures. No longer you need to carry equipment with you!

Imagine people walking on the streets with a swarm of drones buzzing above their heads :)

They already exists. Example: https://hexoplus.com

In reply to:

gunkan: The body price and the lens prices have no sense to me. APS-C at the price of Full frame. I really loved my Fuji X-A1 ans X-S1, but the price is not real. In Spain, the prices for fuji equipment go really really low because the starting point is surreal.

It is more ok if the body is expensive and the lenses are not. My dilemma is that I have a wonderful FF Sony but the lenses are ridiculously expensive. Fujis are cheap and excellent.

In reply to:

Becksvart: The X-Pro2 I find rather aesthetically pleasing, unlike a certain recent just-crawled-out-of-the-sea Olympus product that many seem to find pretty.

Paragraph 4: first sentence indicates ergonomy is largely unchanged, second that it's part of what makes the X-Pro2 different from its predecessor. I feel that they feud somewhat.

It's very clear what they mean. Nothing odd there. I love the ergonomics of my x-pro 1 (except for the view button that changes whether the picture is shown in EVF or LCD which I tend to push by mistake). Good that the performance is improved since that was seriously lacking.

In reply to:

fmian: Supply and demand.
There would literally be thousands of photographers out there who are willing to shoot Taylor Swift for free and give up their rights. It's not totally the clients fault if photographers themselves (as an industry) have been undervaluing themselves. Where one disagrees and declines to shoot, another 5 will pop up and offer themselves up to be eaten.
In contrast, there is only one Taylor Swift.

You're absolutely right on this one. Photographers have had a premium position earlier and now it becomes more and more like art. Many do it, few will earn a cent on it. Amateurs are becoming more and more skilled as well. I'm happy that this is only a hobby for me.

nikkornikon: They Need to, Like Fuji...to Step away from 16mp. It is time to move on. When 24mp is truly old...16 seems freaking ancient.

I can only say that when you get used to 36 mp you don't want to go back again. It gives me cropping opportunities and, well, just a lot of detail and as a photographer it is nice.
