PVCdroid: Insane pricing and they will still sell a boatload of them.

No you pay a lot for things you THINK are quality. Trick is getting people to think your stuff is quality.

princecody: I own a Retina I bought in December 2012 & it runs Great! Apple is starting to become ridiculous! 1st no head jack for the iPhone 7. Now know traditional USB ports? Apple has literally lost their mind 🙈😬🤒😭

Retina is merely apple's marketing term for their smaller pixel screen. It's not a computer itself.

J A C S: Where are my Fx keys for running Windows on it?

Think again if you think the majority of computer users (phones aren't capable of mass work usage) aren't running Windows. They are.

PhotoKhan: The fact that "Facebook" and "Censorship" are so many times present in the same sentence should be a real eye-opener. Unfortunately, selfies seem to be all that matters nowadays.

Yet you post your photos to amazon (owns dpr) which is going to get into far more stuff than Facebook will

Thomas Traub: what should we learn from this step: that facebook is controlling what goes public and what not - that's a massive intrusion in information-liberty. As "sozial platforms" controll the information we get or get not they controll our information and also our opinions ........ very very suspect!

No, it's a private organization. It's not the government forcing censorship of the press! Doh!

On article Modest Updates: Nikon D3400 Review (373 comments in total)
In reply to:

marike6: The D3400 is a no nonsense budget shooter with excellent IQ and a solid feature set. It may not be as sexy as some of Fujifilm’s bodies. It may not have all of the higher end features of the Pentax K70. But Nikon’s system has way more lenses and flashes for much less money. Great budget flashes like the Godox Ving V850, Yongnuo TTL flashes are easy to find for Nikon/Canon. Slap a 35 f/18G on this D3400 and you’ll have spent far less than a comparable Fujifilm setup and you’ll get way better IQ than any Olympus / Panasonic body.

how man of those aps-c lenses you list are lenses that have been replaced by newer/cheaper lenses? Probably a lot. Canon had had at least 4 different 18-55 ef-s kit lenses each newer one replacing the older one either for image quality (improved) or build quality (decreased cost to construct).

endofoto: I think Nikon put the old sensor in this camera the same sharpness as D3200 at ISO 100. D7200 has the same sharpness as D750 at 100 ISO. If they used D7200 sensor it would be much better. I use D3200 with 40 mm Mikro Nikkor for hand held macro, it is so lightweight, I can shoot hand held. I have D300 too with 105 Micro Nikkor, impossible to shoot hand held. This cam is very usefull hor macro.

"sharpness" isn't a function of the image sensor, but the lens used and the jpg settings.

Ozaveshe: I need a Nikon camera for both digital and video. The video side must act like the VHS, to be use in life Church programme/coverage.
Can someone recommend please

Don't get a nikon for any video. They still have old style autofocus in video - which isn't good. You'd need to consider Canon with their dual pixel autofocus for very good autofocus in live view or video mode or a mirrorless/evil camera.

(unknown member): Truly amazing imagery. Just wow!

Interesting to see some not currently state of the art gear get these winning photo's yet again - GoPro, Canon 7D Mark I, 5D Mark III, Nikon 18-105 (isn't that a kit lens?). But but but, what about pushing those exposures 5 stops and where is the 4K damnit??? According to the Sony fanboi's here you NEED the new tehcnical whizbang wizardry to take photo's. Which begs the question, why isnt Sony represented in the winners since it should be so easy to get maximum DR and super quick focusing, even with adapting EF and F lenses? Hmmmm.

no 7D mark I

Mister Joseph: So, worse IQ than previous generation (e.g. Samsung S6) cellphones? Could've been nice if Kodak went all the way like a Samsung Galaxy Zoom.

Also, I remember Kodak dropping their camera business during a time when they were had nice devices like the PlaySport, PlayTouch, Zi8 etc.

Kodak doesn't exist any more. It's a paid for licensed brand name , that's all read the article.

In reply to:

telawrence: I don't think we should be surprised at the price for this lens. With the market dropping for cameras due to phones they are doing what Sony is doing and focusing on professional lenses at top prices. They have to make a profit like every other company. Pros will buy this in droves. This is the same reason they aren't making APS-C lenses, why bother when pros mainly use FF and they can make more money per lens on a FF lens than they will on an APS-C lens.

Phones aren't replacing users of 70-200 f/2.8 zooms! Doh!

(unknown member): Relative to that being from a phone and watching that on my 23" monitor, it looks pretty good.

My next phone will be another Apple device but there is nothing wrong with the Pixel's output.

Screen size doesn't factor in because the bigger the screen the farther away your eyes are from the screen.

I have/used it. Decent iso 800 but iso 1600 was clumped up noise reduction.

ProfHankD: My wife and daughter both had iPhones which didn't burn, but had their cases burst by expanding batteries. Serious problems with glued-in batteries are common; Samsung was just unfortunate enough to (very rarely) have a very dangerous failure mode for the one in the S7. In my opinion, the disadvantages of glued-in batteries, which include various environmental issues involving disposal, far outweigh the advantages. Samsung used to have removable batteries -- as they do in the S5 that I use -- and I hope removable, sealed, batteries are what everybody gets back to. BTW, it wouldn't be that hard for the battery to be smart enough to detect a pending problem and disable itself.

Serious problems are "common"? Nope.

WillWeaverRVA: If Google were smart they'd offer a discount for Note 7 users looking to switch to the Pixel. The Pixel is looking like the class of the field in the world of Android smartphones. I'm almost tempted to get one to replace my iPhone 6.

At the very least, they need to introduce "does not explode" into their marketing...

No way to prove being a note user since you have to return it to get your $700 back. Doubt Google wants to give users a free new phone for a note 7.

In reply to:

RedFox88: This is a HTC phone with the name Google on the back, right? Google doesn't make phones.

No this article says it's a HTC phone but doesn't say it on the phone anywhere. They used to make phones but that came and went when they quickly bought then sold Motorola.
