On article Nikon announces development of D850 (538 comments in total)
In reply to:

DotCom Editor: Wow, this should be amazing, especially since Nikon is blowing right by the D820, D830, and D840.

similar to the jump from 700 to 750?

i'm undecided about the shot of curry...not sure what it is...maybe the subject isolation yet still having surrounding players lit in the shot as well...idk. but at the same time, it reminds me of playing under street lights in the park.

On article Nikon D7500 vs Nikon D500: Which is better for you? (399 comments in total)

it's a camera. it captures images (and video)...I don't get all the discontent about Nikon not personalizing for each individual buyer out there...

On article Nikon D7500: What you need to know (540 comments in total)
In reply to:

cshyde: I would like to see a feature for feature comparison between this and the D500. Seems like there isn't much for the $800.00 price difference.

Not having dual SD card slots is almost a deal breaker. main reason I bought the D7200 was the dual card slots.

I'm probably one of the few people that doesn't mind one card slot...i don't do a whole lot besides stills and primarily shoot raw...have never needed the 2nd slot in any of my shooting...nor have i needed touch screen or tilt, or wireless connectivity.

Daft Punk: "Exaggeratedly derided Adobe Camera Raw"...

Really? Given the history of how other software suites have done a (much) better job of handling Fuji X trans files, i think the derision is not unfair.

How does DPR come to the conclusion that the problems with Adobe and X trans are exaggerated?

The Fuji users who flock to C1 and Iridient aren't doing it for their health. They do it because the results are better.

i reeeeallly wanted C1 to work for me...but the UI takes a lot of getting used to and i made the mistake of buying 9 just early enough that i couldn't get the free upgrade to 10 :/

yeah, the latest version of ACR is very good...looking at comparisons between ACR, Iridient, C1, etc...I don't think it's worthwhile jump from ACR/LR to any of them.

In reply to:

entoman: Fantastic shots, but I feel that several of them have been "done before" and are becoming a little bit of a cliche. The image that really stood out for me was "Out of the Blue" by Nick Blake. A great composition and stunning lighting.

Almost every shot has been done before but everyone wants their own. Nothing wrong with that... And if they get rewarded/recognition for it, all the better.

On article Ultimate OM-D: Olympus E-M1 Mark II Review (1383 comments in total)

The statement about IQ being lesser than similarly priced cameras is bothersome...but the video IS is something I loved about the EM5MKII. Making a supremely outfitted, capable camera is one thing...making it affordable (if you're not in the system) is the secret to success.

looks nice and capable for action. now, we need Sony, or Sigma/Tamron, to put a nice, long super zoom out ;)

LaurenceSvirchev: There is no excuse for not photographing in RAW.

Plenty of reasons not to shoot RAW.

On article Elevating X-Trans? Fujifilm X-T2 Review (2216 comments in total)
In reply to:

GabrielZ: Just did a direct comparison with the a6300 (85%) using the widget above and apart from ergonomics/handling and a very slightly lower score on metering/focus accuracy. The Sony beats the Fuji on all fronts, even build quality has the exact same score, I thought the Fuji would win there. Still...I prefer the X-T2, a much nicer looking camera and future Kaizen firmware upgrades might improve performance. Even though the new a6500 will probably clobber it.

I'm more comfortable with a DSLR than with my X-T1 w/vertical grip...however, with the MHG, it works well enough.

chile7236: Great that they built an underwater housing... Not so great that it doesn't appear to be able to use the on board flash to optically trigger UW strobes :/

ohhhh. it just didn't look like it allowed the on board to pop up enough...
