1600 pixels wide is not right in this day and age. Nice shot though. Not really a swamp, but who's counting?

The D500 isn't the video camera of the year, but its 4K output is very nice indeed. Happy!

Excellent pics for once for one of these "top ten" posts. Flickr is loaded with good pics.

On article Sigma releases price and availability for sd Quattro H (372 comments in total)

Sigma can bring out as many of these cameras as they like, but they will still be noisy as a swarm of gnats, have way too much contrast, be of no earthly use over ISO 100 and will produce scraggly digital artifacts. Just for a start. And cost $1200.

On photo Denali in the Landscapes with a "Wide Open aperture" challenge (11 comments in total)

A nice shot that would have benefited greatly from a correct exposure or exposures and much less garish contrast and color.

The medium format look, lol! Nice camera, I'm sure, but not a single one of you could tell it from a 36-54MP pic.

4 seconds on my computer. Sounds like an update is needed. Sliders should be real time on all LR controls.

Super shot, Will!

D500 for 1799, D800e lightly used for 1400, Pentax K1 for 1600, Sony whatever for under 2 grand anyone? These pics are pretty fuzzy.

On article Modest Updates: Nikon D3400 Review (378 comments in total)
In reply to:

marike6: There is a disconnect between the superb IQ and solid feeling grip and good in hand feel of entry level cameras like the D3400 and T6 and the almost condescending tone of these reviews. I have an Olympus EM10, the kind that these reviewers seem to drool over, and frankly, it does not compete well with the IQ of this D3400 and it doesn't feel as good anywhere near as good in the hand. But it's mostly metal, has a flippy screen, and makes for good Flickr camera porn photos. Big deal. DPR should remember why the D3000 series is a best seller for Nikon. They are inexpensive, reasonably well made, F-mount and they produce great looking image and video files. For the price this camera is a no brainer, although more advanced users would be better off with the D5500 or similar.

A voice of reason. If maximum image quality for the dollar is important, this is one of a short list of cameras you'll want to look at.

On article Modest Updates: Nikon D3400 Review (378 comments in total)
In reply to:

zodiacfml: Thanks for the review because it made me happier as I purchased the d3300 at absolute steal a few weeks ago. :P I'm baffled with the removal of the dust removal feature.
000
Yet, not truly happy because this is my first DSLR (purchased as an emergency) as I discovered that the lens kit doesn't resolve well. I exported/reduced my RAW files to 7 MP and still lack pixel level detail. A Ricoh GR can beat this system easily.

24 MP is pretty useless. I'd rather get a 12 to 16 MP sensor for even better DR while still resolving better than the included lens. In fairness, 24 MP is good enough in terms of indoor and low shooting. I left the ISO setting to Auto and never touched it again while using moderate apertures from 5.6 to 7.1.

You downsized your raws and then complain about "pixel level detail?"

Marcelobtp: VIdeo quality seems really poor i really doubt this is representative of the d500 video quality, seems too much compression is going on and thats not youtube fault.

I can report it's very nice 4K video on a 4K monitor. Still frames from the vid are pretty good as well. It's miles better than any 1080p you've seen from a DSLR, that I can promise.

On photo Elephants Performing in the Random Items - Challenge 29 challenge (32 comments in total)
In reply to:

The Davinator: Great photo. Curious what film was used. I still love my X700. Some amusing comments here about the animal treatment....after which I'm sure the naysayers had no problem eating meat with their meal. Oh the double standard.

A little background. Dave apparently thinks that getting a few more thumbs up from his little claque in the Open Talk, the dumbest forum on DPR constitutes me having been "owned." Pathetic, isn't it?
David, when my worst photograph isn't a whole lot better than your best, then I will indeed start to worry. But the fact of the matter is that you spend all day pontificating about the glories of film to the gullible on Open Talk instead of improving your photography. With your enthusiastic support of performing animals you've found a new way to dive deeper. For shame!

And DPR, please feel free to take down this photo, a relic of an era that can't be bygone soon enough for any thinking person. And of course the poor elephants.

http://www.peta.org/features/ringling-bros-elephant-cruelty/

Ringling Brothers have finally stopped using elephants after the day to day cruelty was brought to light. If you want to really ruin your day, read about Tyke, the elephant in Honolulu who broke out onto the streets after killing her trainer and was pursed by police and shot for many hours until finally dying.
