On article Field Test: Shooting action with the Nikon D5 (114 comments in total)

The new Nikon AF system is amazing. The use of 3D AF is great if you know who the subject is prior to shooting, but in team sports, such as football, basketball and lacrosse, that is not always possible. In Dynamic AF is best in those instances.

Rich Rosen: What I find interesting, is that even with all the hoopla about newspapers going to photographers using smart phones, even with the so called stampeding of mirrorless, Getty has chosen to use the "antiquated" DSLR as their primary "weapon." I'm sure that mirrorless and smart phones will make an appearance, but it the DSLR that will be doing the heavy lifting.

Deep7: are you suggesting that there is no lag time, between what you see, and what is occurring in an EVF? I know what the lag time is in an OVF; the speed of light. But how does the electronics effect what you are viewing in an EVF?
I agree that mirrorless could be the dominant system in several years. It is certainly a next step in photography. But not today! Getty knows what Canon can do. I am also sure, that Getty has a sweet deal with Canon. For an event as important as the Olympics a company like Getty wouldn't experiment with new equipment. That will only happen when such equipment has been vetted at lesser events, and proven to be able to do the job.

You may be right. I am not commenting on the abilities or inabilities of mirrorless. I am only commenting on Getty's decision to continue to use of DSLR's over mirrorless. However I would suggest that part of that decision has a lot to do with the power issues, the viewfinder lag times, autofocus speed and the availability of native long primes that are available. In all those instances, the DSLR is still superior. A skilled photographer with those advantages, will trump (no pun intended) a skilled photographer without those advantages.

On article D500 owner formally accuses Nikon of false advertising (475 comments in total)

That is one aspect of the D500 that is disappointing. While I did my research, and knew that Snapbridge and D500 connectivity wouldn't be available until after the Summer, for iOS, the apple logo is all over the D500 box and in the manual. I also understand that The Snapbridge App isn't much better than the WMAU app that is available for the D750 and other models. It is primitive at best.

On article 2015 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras $1200-2000 (328 comments in total)

Even if we allow for changes in technology, I do not understand how the Sony with an 82 score from DPR was rated best, while the Nikon D610 with a 87 score wasn't even rated in the top 3. Actually I do understand. The top three are mirrorless. I am guessing that DPR (amazon) sees more potential in selling that type of camera, as opposed to the "old and tired" DSLR.

Congratulations to all the winners! Just one little niggle about the article: headline reads "Canon sweeps DSLR categories" But the D5500 (Nikon), won the consumer DSLR catagory. So, while Canon did very well this year, you can't call it a sweep.

Rich Rosen: From its looks, it totally contradicts "smaller is better." It has very similar lines to the PENTAX 67. The pictures in this article, don't give us an idea of size compared to other full frame cameras or even current Pentax DSLR's.

Ok. I'll defer to those who know Pentax, better than I do.

On article Nikon 1 V3 Review (651 comments in total)

Ordered the V3 in early June. I had questions about it, but liked the compactness and the US Nikon offer of including the lens adapter in the package. But then Nikon announced two things: the D810, and admitting that the V3 was delayed in production. I canceled the V3 order, and ordered the D810, which I will get tomorrow.

Philip Peynerdjiev: Canon MKIII is perfect for JPEG's shooting, in RAW Nikon is king.

The camera is very capable of handling sports. I use it for high school football. Its burst rate is more than adequate for this sport. My use of jpegs or raw is dependent on the situation.

Why is this article even on DPR? It must be the green the site is getting to promote this stuff.
