On photo Bianca VI-7820 in the The Modern Girl challenge (7 comments in total)
In reply to:

Introverted Pirate: Way over-processed in my humble opinion. In my eyes I saw the result of someone tweaking those sliders in LR instead of a cool surfing photo. The capture is great though!

I agree with you...pic looks too overcooked...that said it definitely looks better at full size then the smaller downsized pic you see above.

Bernard Carns: So what was your first and last digital camera?
Mine:
First: Casio QV-10
Last: Blackmagic BMPC 4k
BC

First digital camera was some junkie P&S around 2003, first serious one was the Canon 20D in 2004. Last camera was a Leica M240....or iPhone 6 if you want to call that a camera.

In reply to:

LFPCPH: Data sheets on all the lenses can be found on Cosinas site via the link below. The data sheets does not say “Made in Japan” but they are marked with Cosinas logo and they do not say “Made in Germany” neither.

What's with people's fascination with whether or not Zeiss lenses are made in Germany or Japan?? I've been shooting various Zeiss ZM lenses on my Leicas for the last 5 years and they are of excellent quality. Yes, I know they are made by Cosina in Japan...and no, I do not care.

On article Fujifilm X100T successor rumored to feature new lens (335 comments in total)
In reply to:

Evil_Sheep: What I think would be awesome is instead of a new fixed focal length that someone will always be unhappy with, they just give us the camera with a detachable lens in X-mount, provided "as-is." The camera would be built around the attached lens and only the attached lens would be officially supported, but if you wanted to stick on other lenses you would have that option. It wouldn't cost anyone anything but simply offer more options and versatility.

It would make a lot of sense on Fuji's part as well, as they could drum up more lens sales that way and potentially have a wider market for would-be X100 purchasers.

????? You mean an X-Pro2??
The whole concept of the X100 is it's a fixed lens camera....

cdembrey: Not interested in a camera with a hokey-hybrid viewfinder, no matter the lens.

What an ignorant statement. Yes, keep your head buried in the sand and maybe you'll see even better.

mailman88: What!....You mean I can't shoot 6400ISO and print 13x19 with my 7D?
The myth is broken....I can, and I sell the prints too.

Mailman88 - It had nothing to do with my noise reduction skills....I rarely even use noise reduction anymore. If you're happy with the 7D then great....but once you use something with a better sensor it's hard to go back.

Really?? I was hugely disappointed with the mushy files out of my 7D and sold it within a year of buying it. The 7D from an ergonomics POV is a great camera....huge step up from say a 5D2, but the image quality is average at best.

luisflorit: RIP, DSLR.

Martin - You had a Fuji...not a A7R2. BIG difference. I own an X-Pro1 and while I love the image quality the thing is s-l-o-w and no replacement for a DSLR.

I imagine your experience would have been much different with this new Sony compared to whatever Fuji you were shooting.

King Penguin: Now if they had a range of low cost compact primes at 16mm, 20mm, 35mm & 50mm such as the excellent Nikkor AFD range it would make it M43 size without the M43 1/4 sized sensor compromise......

@PazinBoise - Maybe so, but they need to flesh out the 'profesional' fast glass before they start in with the budget line. Sony users have waited a long time for good glass and now the patience seems to be paying off.

The reason Canikon sell budget lenses is because they have cameras like the Rebel. I'm not sure the target market for a $3k camera is too concerned about the availibility of $300 budget primes.

In reply to:

Clyde Thomas: Last weekend studio shoot with a7RII got 710 shots with two batteries in vertical grip. Shot until camera died.

Yesterday studio shoot with a99 got 841 shots on one battery and had 10% left... writing double RAWS to two cards.

Your mileage may vary.

a99 more pleasurable to use with waist level vertical shooting from full LCD articulation. AF performance superior in live view, and superior to E Mount, even when adapted with LAEA-3/4, especially with studio modeling lights.

a7RII with vertical grip larger than a99 body only. Larger still when adding extra card, extra backup hard drive, extra battery. Larger still when adding LAEA adapter.

Both cameras have extremely nice EVF size and optics. a7RII is a step up.

I appreciate a7RII for what it is.
But I'd be even more appreciative if Sony would provide updated a99II native A Mount. Not saying you guys can't have the excellent a7RII. I want you to have it. Please understand and support why I would want updated A Mount.

I guess I'm old school but 710 shots in one studio session?? Really?? Am I the only one who is (semi) conservative when I'm shooting?? I would rather stab my eyes out with venemous daggers then sift through 700 photos after a shoot.

Chris Noble: This is not a "closer look" by DPR; it is an extensive advertisement entirely written by Sony.

What's wrong with you people? Always looking to complain and make something out of nothing.

nafik: good alternatives to Adobe anyone?

I don't get the hate when it comes to Adobe. I've been using PS and LR for years and it does exactly what I need it to. In fact, I have never had another program that could do everything I needed except for Adobe.

In reply to:

(unknown member): Excellent perspectives, great setups.

Dear DPReview - please fix the transitional fade in fade out stuff on these showcases. Even on the fastest internet Comcast offers (which tells me it's your servers, not Comcast) the first 3-5 seconds of every new image had the shadow of the previous image over it. Kind of ruins the gallery click through experience because it begins each image with a chaotic dogs' breakfast, that undercuts the impact of a great image. Something other than fades perhaps, because photography like you showcase deserves better.

Not sure what you're talking about...works fine for me.

Mister J: And quite right too.

But - ridiculously - you still cannot shoot the Eiffel Tower at night.

Never been to France but I wouldn't give a @#% about such a stupid rule...if I'm there at night I'm taking the pic...just like millions of others do every year.

On article Phase One 645DF+ with IQ250 field test (138 comments in total)

Interesting article, I think most of us would love a kit like that if we could afford it. That said, I guess I'm going to be 'that guy' and say I'm a little disappointed in the photos. All that fancy kit and not even one decent landscape shot?? The pic of the beach is devoid of any interest and has a slightly crooked horizon to boot. The only pic I wouldn't have deleted here is the B&W portrait of the kid, I like that one.
I guess it's easy to be the critic when I'm not the one writing the article but honestly, on a site with this visibility reviewing gear of this caliber you would think you guys would step up the game a bit.
