    I was wondering the same thing.

  • Created discussion thread Interesting little colour comparison
    This is the calgary camera shop guy comparing out of camera jpgs between camera systems. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRQpueEvb-U
  • Replied in Enlighten me.
    If you can't think of a reason to buy a certain lens, you probably don't need it.
  • Well, for me that is genuinely surprising. :-)
  • Loyal customers are stupid. The company doesn't care except that you give them money. Consider this: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/51534384
  • If the worse thing to complain about in camera offerings today is the nature of the physical screen adjustment (remember when screens didn't move at all?), then obviously things are good in the ...
  • Underexpose and boost the file in post.

    agreed Fair enough. But I think you understood that is what the original poster meant.
  • Replied in hmmm
    I've gotten used to DPReview being slow on reviews but they're now late on major announcements as well. They really have lost their original raison d'etre. Now it's sell sell sell ... who cares ...

  • This post would have been ignored if posters were knowledgeable. Poll: do we experience gravity as a force pulling us towards earth? It's fascinating just how much belief trumps reality.

  • Replied in An example?
    1) A better photographer will get the better result even with a 'worse' system. 2) You're assuming 'better' = more DR. Do you remember the days when really good photographers utilised contrast, ...
  • Replied in An example?
    Remember the days when good photographers assumed they couldn't capture the world's DR and captured stunning images nonetheless?
  • Replied in I agree
    Yup. yup
  • Replied in An example?
    Bracketing ... all the DR you could possibly want. Proper exposure. It's a skill that the current technology has allowed many to lose. What fun would photography be if all you had to do was point ...
  • Replied in An example?
    Can you (or someone) show me an example of a picture where your skill as a photographer was constrained by the current sensor technology? Anyone?
  • Replied in really good post
    Vividly demonstrates how system knowledge and practice can trump technical specs. NZ doesn't need the CAF of a high end DSLR to get good shots, whereas a less capable photographer might.
  • Replied in excellent
    Don't have to go to airshows anymore. Just sit back and wait for the great pictures to roll in.
