But... you can also create some awesome "horrific" images with no chemicals and no waste.

Worst of all, some people will be dumb enough to spend their money on it.

Sorry to hear that your dog behaves like a cat :-)

This is like walking into a car dealer wanting to buy a new car, but the sales person says "Sorry, this particular model is not for sale. You can only rent it."

Whatever you have to hide, never let others to do it.

Morvegil: I love the Sony Fanboys coming to drop their worthless 2 cents.

It sounds like you are a Nikon fanboy...

vFunct: This camera puts to shame every mirrorless camera. Mirrorless is a dead-end technology for people that don't know how to take a good photo.

If you go to Cannes, the Oscars, Fashion Week, etc.. you will see that NO ONE uses a mirrorless camera. They are garbage.

Professionals use a real dSLR, instead of baby-mirrorless cameras. Leave the mirrorless for your kids, to teach them what a bad camera is.

I disagree. Mirrorless has many advantages. It won't take long before Nikon releases its first pro mirrorless camera.

"...love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
It doesn't look like that. Not even in this forum.

Wouldn't it be great if DPReview could feature a comparison test between "the best" iPhone, Android phone and "a good" medium priced DSLR to compare the image quality results? Or maybe it would be just a waste of time because most experienced and knowledgeable photographers know the answer?

goodgeorge: I am still quite surprised how many beginners spend so much money on Photoshop while we have Affinity for a few bucks or GIMP completely for free.

Affinity Photo has also excellent free video tutorials on Vimeo.

PETA and Wikipedia are behaving like idiots - and so are the judges. The photographer is right, it is his equipment that was used by an animal, and as far as I know, animals are not included in human's copyright laws. I hope that the photographer will win this case, and that all his legal expenses will be paid by PETA and Wikipedia.

The box looks like something from the 1960´s.

Why did the customer return it to the shop? Warranty repair is unlikely.... Maybe special materials recycling?

On article You should totally spend 15K on this rare Zeiss lens (9 comments in total)

I could probably give USD 15.00 for it, but not more. Value is an individual perception, and I can really not see any real value for this old lens, even if it is a rarity.

You will always "lose money" when switching over to a completely new system, no matter if it is to Sony, to Canon, to Nikon or any other system. It always depends on how much equipment you have, how old it is, and what is the minimum you need to get in a new system.

On article Sony a9: Why being better might not be enough (767 comments in total)

Sony is not necessarily aiming its new line of pro equipment towards established photographers. Old photographers will disappear with time, and a new generation will take over. There are many new photographers out there who want to build a system from scratch, and many of them might start with Sony as it is making its products attractive. About a 300/400 mm f2.8 prime, I have no doubt that it is on the way.

String: I just have to laugh... another new camera and once again Steve Huff proclaims it "the best camera ever made!" Is there anyone that takes that guy seriously?

My guess is that you are the one that is not taking it seriously - and you should, if you are a serious photographer.
