On article A lot to Leica? Hands-on with the Leica SL (Typ 601) (1513 comments in total)

It definitely makes a BIG statement!

Wow... why focusing on the performance of the 10 year old GR, which makes it sounds bad, whereas the current GR is an outstanding camera that is hard to beat in the APS-C format. I hope Ricoh didn't come up with this unnecessarily demeaning statement.

On article Readers' Showcase: Luis dos Santos (54 comments in total)

Very talented and skilled photographer, but I disagree on one point, the spaces he photographed are anything but ordinary. Stating that these are ordinary spaces is an insult to the architects who conceived these masterpieces. He does however have a very good perception of spaces that other "ordinary folks" often overlook.

In reply to:

acassino: I think this ad campaign is stupid and offensive.

Offensive in what way? It is silly and dumb... like a vast majority of TV shows nowadays and it does one thing obviously: it gets attention (it got yours). Sometimes even negative attention is better than no attention, and I doubt anyone will reject the EM5II because of it (well... other that ThatCamFan who stated to the contrary perhaps ). If anything it may prompt some people to look it up to find out what it's all about that would have never even thought that Olympus was still making cameras! There's Nikon and Canon and nothing else no?

Nice camera, though I am not certain the flip-out LCD is a good idea. Sure the video club will love it, but the rest not so much. Can't please everyone I suppose.

ped·ant noun \หˆpe-dษ™nt\

: a person who annoys other people by correcting small errors and giving too much attention to minor details

I guess someone in DPR doesn't appreciate being corrected!

For the price, Leica should provide a free stick-on Red Dot in the box ;-)

Beautiful object indeed, but how usable is it going to be in bright sunshine?

Perhaps people thought they were $1.50 ๐Ÿ˜ That would be a fair price.

On article Pentax K-3 real-world samples gallery (150 comments in total)

I hope the trip to Hawaii was better than these photographs, no fault of the camera! These looks like whomever shot these had a few Mai Tai's before thinking... gosh I forgot, I'm supposed to shoot some images with this new... hmmm, what is it again... ho yeah.. Pentax.... honey why don't you take it out for a spin while me and the boys are playing golf :-)

On article Lightroom 5 Public Beta: What's New (90 comments in total)
In reply to:

Elliven: I have Windows 8 (32) on my computer and have recently downloaded and installed the Lightroom 5 beta. My problem is that in importing images into Lightroom 5, they just show up as gray tiles in the library and develop areas.

A friend suggested that my display driver may need to be upgraded but I have checked and it is the most up to date driver for my system. ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 (Microsoft Corporation- WDDM v1.1)

Every other photographic program I have installed, including Photoshop elements 9 and Picasa, all display perfect images.

Help!! please.

Grey tiles happened to me with V4 and Win 7, and it has to do with your screen color profile. Go to control panel, Color Management, and set the screen ICC profile to sRGB.

On article Capture One Fujifilm X-Trans Raw support tested (211 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sgt_Strider: So can one safely say that the C1 software is the best for X-Trans sensors at the moment?

Have Adobe even acknowledged that their converter needs improvements? I wonder if they'll put in the effort to produce better results for X-Trans sensors going forward?

HowaboutRAW:

I don't understand the remark wrt Silkypix. Have you tried Silkypix DS Pro 5 rather than the 2+ generations old free version that ships with the cameras ?

On article Best Camera of 2012: And the Winner is... (1414 comments in total)

Bravo Oly, a little surprising but well deserved no doubt. Curious about the K-01 getting its own side remark, especially given that DPR didn't even review the camera themselves but rather cut-and-pasted someone else's review ! The DPR team has obviously not remained indifferent to it though if they thought it deserved a "special mention" ! Tx DPR, any publicity is good for Pentax ;-)

In reply to:

Heie2: The Pentax K-01, while many hate on the basis of looks alone, is BY FAR the greatest value for money to hit the world of photography in a very long time.

The Pentax K-30 mirrors that sentiment for DSLR's.

It is indeed, right now, a great value regardless of the circumstances that brought the price down, and now that more people are actually owning and using it, the feelings towards it are also changing for the more positive.

In reply to:

Toccata47: My vote would have gone to the k-01 if it dpreview had included it on the list of appropriate selections.

It's a perfect bridge camera in the sense that it combines the best iq available in a 16m sensor with full manual controls with the advantage of a 40 year backlog of available lenses....and it's the size of the omd and 1/3 the price.

It's a camera that is easy to miss the point of, obviously.

Fair share of problems ? Misconceptions or dislikes perhaps, but problems I am not aware of a single one. AF is as good if not better than the OM-D, size in this case is a real advantage, obvious to anyone that actually held it with a larger lens on it, IQ the best of its class, lens compatibility the best of its class, but it's a different look and design than all others I'll admit, and leaves no one indifferent that's for sure, including DPR.

kadardr: DPR completely forgot about Samsung EX2F

Indeed, as they pretty much did for the EX1. Don't understand why, it's a mistery to me; this must be frustrating for Samsung.

In reply to:

VivaLasVegas: Does anybody know if this is made in China?

I read somewhere that BENRO, a Chinese Manufacturer, used to be a sub-contractor to Gitzo, hence the many similarities in design and construction. Don't know if this is true or not.
