On article Under pressure: Canon vs. Nikon in a hydraulic press (295 comments in total)

These aren't rare guys. You can find stores packed to the ceiling with them and can be had for $150 in working condition. There is no evidence that either of these were working.

I enjoyed this video, Barney. And yea, I watched it more than once.

Kostasm: mirrorless is the future. end of story.

Probably. At present, it's not yet ready for some things.

In reply to:

Howard: From mirrorless to penniless ...

@shig And nearly all the enthusiasts I know use mirrorless as a slightly smaller compromise to their SLR.

In reply to:

Kaso: On an APS-C camera, the Sigma 18-35/1.8 Art and this Sigma 50-100/1.8 Art are equivalent to over a dozen f/1.8 primes at top performance. Simply awesome!

That link compares f/1.8 vs. f/2.8. Set both to 2.8 and the Sigma is back on top.

Vanitas Photo: Nikons cant get a sharp defined subject when shoothing through gas/heat combo expelled by fire? My (insert other brand) can get it sharp!! And not looking ripple-ish.

Nikon is doomed.

P.S. It is a joke :)

How many photographers does it take to change a light bulb? 50. One to change the bulb, and forty-nine to say, "I could have done that!"

Pitchertaker: At $6K just for the body and only 20.2MP I'll just buy a Pen-F and all the Olympus Pro lenses.

@Pitchertaker Motocross is lots of fun to shoot, though.

In reply to:

cathyph1: Barney -- Could you possibly explain why the G7 was picked over the GX80/85? It seems that the GX80/85 has everything the G7 has and more or am I missing something? Of course the G7 can be had for less money but that didn't appear to be the criterion.

I had trouble finding it at all. But when I did, at a serious premium. (Is it new?) But you're right. The list price is just under the $800 target price.

It's outside the target price range for this piece.

The lost art of still life! I'm glad someone is paying attention.

I have to admit that the snow scenes do nothing for me.

Aroart: I find it rather amusing so many people have so much to say about a camera that they have neither owned or shot with... Check out the angry photographers you tube channel and he'll tell it like it is.. Warning , he is a bit extreme though....

He's an idiot.

In reply to:

DamianFI: Sometimes I find these articles average.
This one is magnificent.

To get the shot like that and get in that close with the 35, wow.
It shows how quickly the 800E can be, you don't need a big D4.
It wouldn't really matter what this tog used, he's obviouly great at what he does, you can see his subjects allow him in.
That's the mots difficult part of photography, not sifting through charts.

I agree. This is an awesome series. Great work Giulio and more like this, DPR!

I think this is a beautiful set to be proud of.

papa natas: There are
snapshooters,
prosumers,
short order photo-cooks,
And then, there are THOSE, who PLAN and CREATE an image.
Those using tripod, light meter, bellows, and bring a thermos with coffee.
For THOSE, Lee Filters are still the benchmark on photo filters since many years past. Lee Filters are STILL most popular among movie directors.
Ask David Lean (Dr. Zhivago)
Maybe one day this new generation will rediscover COKIN Filters.

You forgot the black card technique (which I do regularly)

I started wiht Cokin filters, but they were cheap crap compared to Lee.

In reply to:

rrr_hhh: 28mm for a fixed focal lens camera is too wide for my own taste. I may have considered one if it was fitted with a 35mm or a 50mm lens.

Agree. If it had been 35mm, maybe 50, I would have one.

In reply to:

aerorail: why is 82% a silver award for some cameras and also a gold award for others?

I think it's the way it is. If I'm going to really like something, it's based on more than technical tests.

In reply to:

m3: I mentioned before that the lack of a tilting screen was a mistake but given the general feeling of this review it's not a street photographers best choice anyway, ho hum ...

I'm looking at a street photography rig. What makes you say that?

I'm currently using a Nikon 1 J5 (fast!) but don't like the tiny sensor so I'm considering this and the Sony RX1R II, maybe Leica Q, but don't like the 28mm.

alcaher: I wish this company the worst with this new product and their other leather products... After all it seems they dont wish the best to all the innocent Cows and animals.

Those cows that die for my food are supposed to donate their skins to PETA?
