DPR's favorite pastime stratospherically-propelled into postdoctoral work....Rishi, is that you?... :)

In reply to:

Mastering Light: Chris and those guys are great. I've always enjoyed their videos.
The camera looks good though it was funny that much of the video was shot on the GH5s (as DPR says, the best video ILC. Period)

I see the say fanboys quickly showed up to bash Fuji as usual. We see an article that has nothing to do with Sony and with in minutes the same sad Sony guys show up to attack everyone. These are the same guys who cried that Sony cameras are weather sealed despite all the evidence.

Anyway, I recently bought an X-A5 and the colors are gorgeous. I am sure the H1 is as good or even better.

QED

No.

It's what Mastering Light reported.

(...and your "combing" of threads, for instance...)

Sony users seem to be a very insecure bunch, the reason why could be an excellent sociological study topic.

Forget Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s. You guys joining DPR is the true Wedding of the Year! This 2nd video review is awesome and, if I believed in spreading costs through multiple systems, I so would get a Fuji. The OOC Jpegs are simply amazing. (On a side note, I must say...how lucky can a photographer be when such a cute, camera loving child happens to be his daughter? :) )

gavin: Lets count the apple fans coming to its defense. It will take a while to get it sorted out through the patent courts

Roland,

Are you vested in intervening-to-soft in every commentary that might suggest, no matter how feebly, that there are some wrongdoings on Apple's part?

...if you are, you tasked yourself a gargantuan job.

Let me cut this short so you, Sony users, can go and try to find out why, in spite of the claims about having the best camera in the whole wide universe, you can't give anything else a rest:

The Nikon FF mirrorless will come too late and the Canon one will be "Meh!".

At peace now...?...No?...Damn, I wonder why...

I don't feel like this is an happy ending, not at all.

I would perfer for PETA now to have to answer for what was clealrly an attempt to derive future gains from abusivly establishing themselves as "Animals Economics Representatives".

If that pretension is not nipped in the bud, experience tells me that it will be very difficult to oppose, once "corporate-type-critical-mass" is attained.

We will all then be sued by them, on behalf of our cats, goldfish or parakeets, because "they feel neglected".

On article Sony 'striping': here's the fix (791 comments in total)
In reply to:

PhotoKhan: Quite curious how this was downplayed by DPR upon the camera's release (...up to the point of making it sound like it was OK because "we have seen it on other cameras" (!)...) and now, suddenly, it "was" bad news giving way to good news, in some kind of instantaneous sublimation, because there's a fix.

It is never too much to remember: Editorial responsibility relates to facts, not protecting brand's interests.

I made it clear...at least twice.

Out.

"You"...!?!?...Where did I claim that? Together with that previous "conspiracy" pearl I am beginning to think you have a knack to put words in someone else's mouth.

Unfortunatly, I can't show you what I am referring to because DPR also has the unhealthy approach to truncate, amalgamate or otherwise replace editorial content, as it as evolves around an item (...an editorial approach that, while not being exclusive to DPR, certainly was not acceptable some decades ago...).

Still, there's that introduction, right here, to clue us in on who actually brought awareness to whom, in what pertains to the A7III.

No Rubberdials, it was not like that.

The issue was only addressed as an addition (...I suppose even in the traditional green edit lettering, if I remember it correctly...) to the original samples galleries, after the comments section became ablaze with questions about it.

The initial paragraph here even seems to acknowledge it:

"Among the major pieces of feedback we received when we published our Sony a7 III sample gallery concerned some odd striping artifacts viewable in some images, such as the one above".

Again, I did not use the word "conspiracy", which you seem to be comfortable with.

I simply pointed out editorial choices. The wrong ones, in my opinion.

It is not the first time DPR downplays or omits camera problems, from varying brands and I feel it that is not the correct editorial path to pursuit.

In the end, my opinion is only as valuable as my credibility.

The "people who brought awareness to the issue" were your readers, after the publication of the initial samples gallery.

You acknowledged it, in the somewhat dismissive tone I mentioned, in an added commentary to the initial piece, as a result of said collective discovery and subsequent commentaries.

Right here, on this piece, this is implicitly admitted in the introductory paragraph.

What "conspiracy narrative"? What I am making a note of are pure editorial options.
