On article Accusations fly over Fukushima photos (85 comments in total)

Doesn't change my view of the photos. They still aren't very good, especially the selfies.

Not to be too much of a "DPR Downer", but those strike me as pretty pedestrian tourist snapshots from what could have been an extraordinary opportunity to acquire uniquely haunting/poignant images.

Big points for at least getting in the exclusion zone, though.

On article A photographer's intro to the world of video (101 comments in total)

Great piece. I dived into DSLR videography early - and then dived back out rather quickly when I discovered how challenging it was. This article effectively recaps the hurdles I encountered - but it also provides the encouragement/solutions necessary to overcome them. Maybe I will give it another go!

villagranvicent: No surprises here. Chinese are the kings of rip-off, they simply don't give a damn about intellectual property, or creative rights. just check how many fake Starbucks, McD or KFC are in China.

Yeah, I will never trust them again after that billion dollar diesel engine emissions scam by that Chinese company Volkswagen.

Interesting lens selection.

Jonathan Brady: Canon? And he's employed and successful? What sort of witchcraft is this!? I demand to know!

It's not witchcraft. It's devilry!

On article DxOMark confirms Canon EOS 1D X II sensor advances (216 comments in total)

DxO certainly produces an accurate measurement of the angst the DPR community feels about different camera brands. The teeth-gnashing this story has produced is extraordinary.

FencerPTS: I miss the 19 page reviews that used to be published.

A 19 page review for a beginner's camera? Find something else to complain about.

Great review. Fantastic camera.

As a regular internet user since the late 1970s I can tell you after seeing a few layout changes such as this in my time the hub bub lasts a few days and then ever body settles down to the new normal as though nothing ever happened.

Thanatham Piriyakarnjanakul: More light loss, bigger, added weight and need to increase ISO or change shutter speed when use teleconverter that very great idea. face palm.

It's a lens for photographers.

As carrying around an 800mm f/5.6 lens is my main form of exercise, I am not sure that this is good news at all.

BlueBomberTurbo: Now if Canon would only give in and use Sony sensors in their DSLRs, too...

No, I'm pretty sure you have that reversed. Canon sensors are actually significantly better than Sony ones.

On article Waterfails: We test Pentax K-1's Pixel Shift (225 comments in total)

Was there was an internal DPR memo from the bosses to the writers to stir up more pointless controversy? The headline here is annoyingly reminiscent of the recent "destroys" one. Not a good trend.

On article Lens shootout: Sony RX10 III destroys the competition (483 comments in total)

Okay, a camera with a quality control problem that produces indistinguishable images from other cameras "destroys" said other cameras. Not DPR's finest headline moment.

On article Benchmark performance: Nikon D810 in-depth review (255 comments in total)

D810. One of the all time great cameras.

Truly, we are blessed to be photographers at this time in history.

The current embarrassment of gear riches probably explains the relentlessly positive tone of discussion on DPR and the absence of incessant recreational complaining.

Combines the human, gear and natural world elements of photography in an extraordinary way. Thanks DPR people.

rallyfan: I didn't read the copy. I took a look at the images and they reinforce what a terrific little camera the Canon... SL is!

We're skipping this body. It fails to address any immediate need.

In two years, we'll see.

At least they have profits to plunge.
