Can't please everyone in a feature like this. Very well-done.

Expose for the shadows, develop for the highlights. We seem to need to flip that around in the digital era.

Good solid product from Pentax.

On article Rebel in your pocket: Canon EOS M3 Review (460 comments in total)

Sad in a way as the lenses are well thought out, of excellent quality and of great value.

evogt500: i have the digital version of these cameras. Namely the Stylus D560z. I have to say, I don't like the clamshell design. Its clunky, loud, and slow. Everytime you want to turn it on, you have to pull the shell, then wait for the lens to extend. That's 3~4 seconds there. Oh, and when the sleep mode activates, guess what, when you wont to wake it up, you have to go through the whole motion of closing and reopening the cover.
Also, that camera used AA batteries. Using liveview without flash, I could get 4 or 5 pictures before the battery low warning indicator flashing. Without liveview and flash, maybe 15.
Don't bring that design back.

Canon Powershot S40, S40, etc. were similar, if bulkier.

arqomx: I don't understand why the need for the separate article.. It's as if after DPR passed their 77% judgement, the manufacturer came gun-trotting "we didn't like what we read, can you do something about it?", and then this article came..
I believe your review has says it all..

Good idea. The reviews are overwrought and I not sure how valuable as archives they have become as they have gotten longer and longer. Longer is not necessarily more authoritative.

I am glad that $700 plus lens is affordable.

I see nothing wrong with down-specifying the entry level DSLR. But this camera should cost no more than $400 with kit lens.

WT21: A way to make newbies fall in love with your system -- get rid of sensor dust reduction, and sell new lenses without VR. That will really help newbies (who don't even understand why they need this stuff) see their pictures shine!

"Nikon stinks -- my pictures are always blurry and there are big spots all over my pictures in the sky"

"Oh, Canon doesn't have these problems -- here try this camera"

The engineering and specification effort to take off a feature (sensor dust cleaning) may cost as much as including it?

That's all.

beavertown: I used to think Canon is the only camera manufacturer who knows how to COOK Jpeg until I bought my Fuji camera.

Fuji Jpeg is unmatched and the best. May be it is to do with their expertise in film producing history?

Olympus-agreed.

Not even a bronze in this Olympic year. Funny, because the images accompanying the review look better to me on screen than many other high-end cameras you review.

On article An introduction to our studio test scene (110 comments in total)

Great. But I would start over with real-world 3-dimensional objects and fixed, consistent but interesting lighting. Pictures of pictures ...

I wouldn't want it known that I had succumbed to that rouse.

Thanks. This is why so many photographers who did it for a living choose Nikon or Canon-the support network. What does Sony offer?

PhotoKhan: The parent company is Getty. The distributor is Alamy. The infringement detection and notice for the original intended copyright infringement legal action came from LCS, which the plaintiff has detected to be under common control by Getty.

In today's day-and-age one of the main reasons to create this cascade of interrelated legal entities is, precisely, to shed responsibility when things go south.

In this instance that shedding is clearly already in motion and it is important to Getty as it will put the 1billion claim by the plaintiff in perspective during the course of the action.

They have also already laid out the pavework to claim that this was nothing more than a simple mistake, over a common and legal activity.

I agree. Just wanted to mention another use of public domain.
One does wonder what the Getty's percentage of total for licensing images reside in the public domain.

Although there are other companies whose business model is built on what you talk about here: companies who sell DVDs of films that are in the public domain.

At this Pro level, which is better: writing to Compact Flash or some form of SD cards?

I give to Nikon for having a sensible name. 1D X5 Mark VIII

Where is the word "Nikon"?
To its credit, I think Nikon has done well with its, dare I say, "affordable" full frame cameras.
