This sounds a bit ludicrous and ill thought out , how will they differentiate photographers who intend to sell images they make from those who dont ?

DotCom Editor: This "interview" is about as newsworthy as a pre-planned, pre-staged photo op. Not a single hard-hitting question. All softballs. Sorry, DPReview, but, that's not how you do news.

DotCom Editor -Thats a bit harsh, answers were quite interesting and a lot of interesting juicy morsels of information came out of that interview ! Hardball questions just lead to series of "No comments" and that ain`t newsworthy ...

designdef: Makes me very happy I swapped all my Nikon gear for the Sony SLT-A99 Full Frame Mirrorless, two years ago! Looks as if Nikon may catch up in a year or so?

Did you just say : A99 Full Frame Mirrorless ?

In reply to:

Gesture: Hardly exciting, especially at $700, but for Canon I can see where it's "adventuresome." Where's the EVF?

Canon seems to be very conservative with respect to EVF`s in its cameras .....

On article SanDisk unveils 512GB Extreme Pro card (162 comments in total)
In reply to:

Vinc T: I just bought a 64GB SanDisk Extreme Pro card from B&H for $99. It is around $1.6/GB. This new 512GB card has the same price per GB. A fairly reasonable introductory price IMHO.

By the way, I tried cards of various sizes from different manufacturers and none has failed. And I won't kill myself if this new card fails on me. Have fun and enjoy life!

TBH everytime a card manufacturer introduces a class leading high capacity card the price is always steep .....that is until other manufacturers start to also wade in ,then prices come down to sensible levels. In two years time the price of this card will be more palatable and by then Lexar, Samsung , Toshiba et al will have their own competing versions of card :)

In reply to:

Joe Mayer: Well, in 2003 the 1GB card came out with a msrp of around $330. So now people are complaining of 512GB for $800? Don't get me wrong. I'm happy with my 64GB CF cards from Sandisk for $100 and I have no use for SD nor do I feel like spending $800 for any card, though if I really really had the use and/or need for one I guess I would. Just putting it in perspective. 512 times the capacity (and an incredible increase in speed too) for less than three times the price in a decade. Not too bad.

That certainly puts things into perspective :) Its really interesting to see how things have come along since that time

Arsen: I am most excited with this announcement today.. I was looking for a small travel flash.. The SB910 is a great flash, but sometimes I want a small flash, small lens on my D810..

Yeah, this is one very exciting announcement that was a pleasant surprise ! :)

In reply to:

Rooru S: I thought Sony was crazy when they released flash units with LED. But now that Nikon did the same thing... maybe they're not.

Even Canon & Nissin have a flash gun with LED lights for video , its becoming a trend ! :)

Michael Piziak: wow, 4 articles on one camera in one day.

I think its great that there are so many articles on one camera. These cameras should be analysed to destruction !

On article Canon India teases 'something big' coming soon (150 comments in total)
In reply to:

tex: Canon, the top dog in camera market share has apparently had little to worry about for the past couple of years or so: the Canon faithful have hardly been stampeding away from the brand. The sturm und drang of certain doom und gloom posters has seemed mildly hysterical so far. To date they could afford their seemingly indifferent (to other makers) attitude.

But if Canon doesn't bring more than a lens upgrade or two, and/or a body tweak or two, to this year's Photokina, then it may indeed be time for the Canon faithful to begin to feel uneasy.

So, big should mean ...big.

Canon has an impressive camera line up even as we speak , if they dont announce any new body I doubt it would even dent their market share ...

In reply to:

Michael_13: There's always something utterly idiotic about these Nikons:
V1 had a crippled mode dial this one has fiddly micro SD.

I'd really like to meet the guy at Nikon who is coming up with these "features".
;-)

Gosh who would have seen that one coming ...micro SD card slot , thats a surprise , micro SD cards are quite adorable though ! :)
