On article Finalists in Taylor Wessing portrait prize announced (93 comments in total)

The first one is soooo staged. The boys eyes are just screaming “Are we done already?”. Of course all of them are staged but the first one feels just too fake.

On article Canon EOS R sample gallery updated with Raw conversions (579 comments in total)

Personally, I like the samples. But I am not a Canon user, so if people in the comments complain they probably know better.

DPR, next time let's stick to the boring pictures. You gave me hard time explaining my wife why I am looking at pretty girls :-)

Jordan was really funny today. Just reminded me of the old good days when almost every episode had clever jokes and funny moments. This is what draw me to TCS in the first place. Too bad it is almost forgotten now.

And Panasonic just rumoured to release their FF system in September. Poor Nikon customers, I can only imagine the agony over pre-order choices if it all comes out true.

I wish there is a D650 coming. My collection of AF-D lenses is not suitable for Z6 so I have to stick with DSLR. Would be nice if they made the body smaller too.

On article Nikon Z7 sample gallery updated from New York and Japan (399 comments in total)

What is even a point of sample images? They all look the same nowadays. Modern cameras, just like any other device or home appliance, compete purely on features, not on quality of output, which pretty much remains the same across similar classes. My $300 dishwasher provides the same output as the one that costs $1,000, only operates much louder and has no fancy interface. Same with cameras - they all produce the same IQ. Even worse, pre-production JPEG samples are usually horrible and don't give true justice to any camera. All these sample galleries are pointless IMHO.

Purely from what they say in this teaser I would assume they are all actors reading their scripts and no more.

VadymA: What’s with the huge hump? Did they forget to remove the mirror in a hurry?

The smartass “joke” is just a reaction to the smartass “add”. They claim some sort of technological revolution is coming, so why not to revolutionize the viewfinder? They draw a comparison to the early Nikon models, which don’t have the hump, so might have at least tried.

Well Nikon, soon it will be our turn to tease you... WITH OUR MONEY.

Finally smartphones have a real chance to surpass DSLRs. In size.

On article Nikon counts down to new mirrorless (1050 comments in total)

Based on Nikon’s history, I will only believe it when I see it.

I want it to make me a better photographer. But since I know it won’t be able to do it, I will save my money and stay with what I already have, which is more than plenty for my needs.

On article Nikon teases mirrorless with video and microsite (1290 comments in total)

Somehow I am getting a feeling that pretty soon if people wanted a compact FF system they would have to opt for a DSLR.

On article DPReview TV: the Sony 400mm F2.8 is a pretty sweet lens (316 comments in total)

Great review. And nice to see a lack of “I hate video reviews” comments for a change :)

Actually, right now Light with its L16 camera is probably the closest company to Leica as far as camera market goes. Both are the worst consumer choices from the cost-benefit perspective.

On challenge Unusual image (2 comments in total)

I think the proper term is "abstract shot". Looks like some submitters misinterpreted your definition of "unusual".

On article Leica Noctilux-M 75mm F1.25 ASPH sample gallery (293 comments in total)

Nice pictures, but I suspect most people who buy this lens will treat it as collectable item, not as photographic tool. They will use it once a year to keep the mechanics working, not to enjoy photography with it. For sure it's a great lens but it is made for collectors, not every-day-photographers. This is just my honest and non-substantiated opinion. Let me know if I am wrong.

In reply to:

Indohydra: Using Adobe Indesign one should be able to produce better books through a local printer. I think this market will grow.

I thought so too about Aperture. When I used Aperture, it was so convenient to create a book and order it right from the application using my Apple account. Ever since Apple abandoned it, it seems they are not interested in supporting creative minds anymore. I remember times when it was Apple's signature feature. Now it's all about serving the masses.
