On article Nikon D7500: Should I upgrade from my D7200? (269 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jack Hogan: My 2c for those looking to buy a Nikon DX body today, ignoring price or when it came out:

Video/Action = D500/D7500 based on your requirements.
Landscape = D7200.

The reason would be that they actually owned a D7200 and a D500 and had a good close peep at the ISO 100 files. Any DX landscaper would be thrilled with the amount and quality of detail produced by the D500, and one would certainly hope the D7500.

Manfred Bachmann: I had bought a D500, but I did not like the picture quality, and so I sold it again. Now the D7500 has the same sensor, with easy highlight clipping and bad shaddow recovery possibility, compared to the D7200! All this comes with one card slot, no gripp possibility and ridiculous high price of €1499.-....the D7200 is €929.- right now!! I have to say, after 35 years with nikon, It's hard to be a nikon fan at the moment:(

Nonsense. Look at the DPR dynamic range widget and realize that the D500 is better than the D7200 at shadow push:

After noise reduction and sharpening both cameras, the result at mid ISO is noticeably cleaner than the D7200. The D500 has the best DX sensor.

The D500 is at least as good as the D7200 for landscape. Shockingly good.

On article Fujifilm GFX 50S Review: Modern MF (903 comments in total)

For those who think I had trouble reading the review, here you go:

"AF speeds on the other hand are lens-dependent. We had two lenses available during testing: the 63mm F2.8 and the 120mm F4. The later uses a linear motor design and offers noticeably faster AF than the 63mm, which uses a direct drive focus motor. The 63mm in particular is quite noisy when focusing (the front barrel extends when focus is initiated, while the 120mm focuses internally).

In good to moderate light, the 120mm achieves focus quickly and with ease, while the 63mm focuses a tad slower and occasionally gets tripped up. In poor light the 120mm can still achieve focus, albeit sometimes slowly and with a lot of hunting. The 63mm often struggles to reliably achieve focus in low light, when a subject is low contrast or backlit.

Shooting in AF-C with either lens is a headache-inducing experience, as the camera continually hunts (as is the nature of contrast detect). Shooting in AF-S is advisable."

No thanks!

A Gold award for a six thousand dollar camera that won't focus. Great!

On article Lightroom Mobile update brings Raw HDR capture mode (59 comments in total)
In reply to:

NJOceanView: Everyone has their own HDR preferences, but I am very pleased with this. In doing interior photos, you are able to see the detail outside, but it is softer -- meaning a bit bright still and with only moderate contrast. That feels very natural to me. When I have tried to compensate to ensure some real punchy views through the window, the interiors are too dark and need some pushing. But I appreciate that, as I greatly dislike the HDR style that makes photos look like they are electrified. So from my own personal standpoint, I'm glad to have this in my arsenal.

LR exposure blend is excellent.

philmar: Don't really care Adobe. You seem to only make changes to increase subscription numbers. Thousands if current subscribers are angry that you do little to improve the current speed (lack of) of the program. Try upgrading the code so that LR better uses the power of GPU acceleration. Marketers have taken over the development of LR.

Plenty fast on my computer.

Peter von Reichenberg: Even if it would be made of gold, it's just another PC/Windows. I have had enough of all the freezes, crashes, reinstalls...since I switched to MC (I was resisting many stupid years) my life has changed and the sun shines every day.

Windows 10 does not freeze or crash.

Digital Suicide: I'm getting rid of my Nikon gear in the near future. I just can't stand incompetence at their warranty service. I've been sending three times to calibrate my defective lens without any success. I am doomed with this lens.

Getting rid of Nikon gear is Digital Suicide indeed.
