TN Args: Are you guys owned by Facebook? Are we going to get a stream of "Look what you were shooting 5 years ago today" articles?

@TillmanB, what I notice is that the 'classic' older digital cameras retain used value much too high. When I compare what I can buy by way of a current model, new or used, for the same price as a 'classic' model today, it starts to look like a joke being perpetrated on me.

TN Args: How desperate would you have to be to sacrifice OS and only save $50?

Great. Nikon trading on the cluelessness of their customers.

Excellent. I'm really looking forward to 8K for its impact on stills photography.

Investors take heed from this. Invest in ANYTHING I cannot fathom.

Fortunately, I can still read your handwriting.

HeyItsJoel: OH THIS IS JUST PERFECT! I already have problems reading women and getting all their signals mixed up. Now you're telling me some hot chick is going to be winking and it might not even be directed at me?!

Well yes, it will be *directed* at you. She will have a few nice snaps of your lusting hopeless hope to take home and enjoy, maybe upload to Pinterest.

Stephen McDonald: What improvements? The aerial and street views of my neighborhood were taken in 2011. Even though there's a copyright date of 2016 on the images, the cars in driveways and the colors of since-repainted houses, tell a different story. The sections of the neighbor's dead tree that fell on my roof in 3/11, is still scattered around on their yard.

This is about the satellite imagery, not the street view. As for your individual house, I expect they will be rolling this update out over the world and it will take a little while.

I agree with you David. I spend zero time in front of SPP. I have a saved preset in SPP that I use in batch mode to 'auto-process' all my X3F files without even looking at them, and a preset in LR for importing them, and I'm done! All PP is done in LR. The SPP preset that I made is a kind of 'raw' image with very low contrast, unsharpened, noise intact, so the image is very malleable outside of SPP and very tolerant of minor indiscretions in the exposure.

Maybe someone didn't want to see the name 'Schultz' on that photo, way back in '45. Very unlikely, I suppose, but a lot worse was happening to people with the 'wrong name' at that time. A lot worse.

In reply to:

TN Args: I think that it is a real pity that you rushed this review into print while the Nikon DL 24- 500 is on the horizon. The Nikon and the Sony together are the new kids on the block, so side-by-side comparison is a really good idea, and would've made all the comparative discussion going on in this review much more complete.

I'm glad that you highlighted the poor performance of this camera with birds in flight or similar types of long-range action photography. That is the one area in which the Nikon is possibly a bit of a game changer for this type of camera. We, the unwashed masses, need to know!

....and when I say rushed, I don't mean the review looks rushed, I mean that there is no rush to get this review out, with its emphasis on comparing the competing models, knowing that the Nikon was announced before the Sony. I know there is a production delay on the DL models, but DPR took 8.5 months to review the GH4 which was a groundbreaking camera, so they can't argue that the Sony review had to go out now without taking the time to get the new Nikon included for reference.

I guess what I am trying to say, is they were both announced at the same time, so buyers will be intrinsically interested in how they compare, and quite a lot of buyers might be reluctant to jump for one or the other until they know how they compare, in hand, in a full review, not just by the spec sheet differences.

I am not saying a side-by-side won't happen once the Nikon is reviewed, but the above review specifically tried to compare all the competition, yet doesn't even address the Nikon in any way. So there is *an elephant in the room* while we read this review, that affects how readers feel about it as a full review of the Sony vs its competitors.

Certainly I switched to white once it came out, and no surprise that white is favoured over black by a 2:1 majority.

Although I know that photo viewing is eased on a dark background, reading is NOT, and DPR is in reality a reading website with minority photo viewing areas.

On article Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D (811 comments in total)

Nice to see more diversity in the enthusiast camera market, especially in the lower end of the price scale for MF. Looks like a very nice product IMHO.

I wonder what price point Sony could achieve with a mirrorless MF body and lenses, if they aimed smash the price floor?

On article Hasselblad to announce 'game changer' next week (460 comments in total)
In reply to:

TN Args: It won't be a game changer unless it enters at a more affordable price point than the current range. If you want to change 'the world of photography', as the hype says, then you have to affect a reasonable proportion of that world.

Fingers crossed.

I know that. But still, their choice of words, 'game changer in the world of photography.' If it starts at $36,999 US then it's no game changer, it's a curiosity. And it won't be changing the 'world' of photography, only the height of the flagpole on top of Mt Everest.
