On article Opinion: Pour one out for Samsung cameras (321 comments in total)
In reply to:

BRPWS: There were some rumors several weeks ago about Nikon supposedly doing something with the Samsung Mirrorless Cameras. Nikon was either buying into or buying out right the Samsung technology for mirrorless.

As Nikon has not yet entered a mirrorless into the market there just might be some validity to this but it would be unusual for Nikon to use some other companies tech.

Nikon has actually entered the mirrorless market with the Nikon 1 series in 2011. However 1" sensors do not seem to be very appealing. At least not yet.

On article Bang for the Buck: Olympus OM-D E-M10 II Review (719 comments in total)

Thank you for publishing the review so fast!

The Studio scene says the images are "slightly less detailed" in Jpeg.
Looking at the RAW images, they still look quite softer compared to the older E-M5, E-M10.
Could this be due to an error during testing or does the camera produce softer images than its predecessors (or do I need new glasses)?

"Speedy autofocus", "Smart and accurate AF". Good marketing lesson!
I used to love this site back when Phil Askey was in charge. It's such a shame what they did to it. It's still probably the best site with the best community but it's getting harder and harder to open this site everyday.

On article DxOMark examines lenses for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III (60 comments in total)

I don't believe this report. Is my 36MP D800 better at low-light ISO than the the 22MP Canon? The only thing I don't like about my D800 is low-light ISO (compared to the competition) and they say it's actually better.
I think they are either lying or these numbers don't mean anything in the real world.

I don't know how bad this camera is but it doesn't seem like DPReview cared to take some decent pictures with it anyway...

BMWX5: Where are the real sample photos for Sony A99?

Sony uses the SLT technolgy which means that about 30% of the light isn't used by the sensor so the same sensor should give better results on Nikon (at least in terms of IQ).

Andrei Todea: What about ISO 12800 and 25600?

Thanks. You are now visiting the "Updated with full ISO range series". When I asked this question the highest ISO was 6400. Thank you for your help anyway!

In reply to:

GeorgeZ: Finally they bring out a new entry level camera and it has many things I wanted (stereo sound is missing) and people complain about the MP.
This is a new sensor and let's wait what it can do before jumping to conclusions. 18MP on this sensor size looked good in 2009, this is 2012. Maybe it's not bad at all.

I missed that. I also thought it MUST be old the Sony sensor. This could still be a mistake in the press realease.

If Nikon is making new 24MP sensors for entry level cameras then we (or at least the people waiting for D7100 or a D700 replacement) are probably doomed :)

In reply to:

JackM: I'm in. But Canon, didn't you get the memo? The D800 only costs $3000.

The explanation was there ("unless you are shooting...")
If that is not enough then just look at the low-light ISO samples.

You can't really compare these cameras until you see the samples. Before seeing the samples I believe that a new 36MP camera doesn't stand a chance against a new 22MP camera (unless you are shooting landscape or you are a cheap studio photographer)

In reply to:

justmeMN: As a Conclusion Con, DPR writes "Conservative Auto ISO behavior can result in dangerously slow shutter speeds indoors (especially frustrating for social photography and continuous-advance shots of indoor sports)"

The Nikon 1 is a (point and shoot) snapshot camera, that does a poor job of taking auto-indoor snapshots. Inexcusable.

Nikon should be ashamed of itself, for screwing up something so basic/obvious.

@AnHund You may be right but you do realize that for $1000 you can't even make a call with this thing!

In reply to:

Graystar: 800 bucks...I just don't understand the pricing of this breed of camera when they can set an ERP on a Rebel T3 of $550...and that's got a bigger sensor and mechanical swinging mirror and pentamirror assemblies in it.

This camera doesn't replace DSLR's. A cheaper DSLR will take better pictures but you may not carry it around so often.

However, IMHO, since shutter lag will be smaller every year, AF speed will improve... this system might replace the new mirrorless systems at some point.

The film company is dead.
OK... but isn't this the company that made the first DSLR, too?!!

Solarcoaster: Fish and water drop look photoshopped. So much for real photography.

The drop seems OK to me. That fish is very small. It may be important to mention that the bird in dvmrp's picture is probably 10 times larger.

While I don't think it's PS'd and I think it's a great, great capture, I don't really think this is a great photo.

On article Adobe faces criticism for change of upgrade policy (375 comments in total)
In reply to:

jhowell39: Long time lurker here and old film guy getting back into it.

Its seems like Adobe might be attempting the 'Netflix' solution -- a rather large caliber, metaphorical handgun is pointed directly at right foot.

The solution is quite simple and is a four letter word -- GIMP.

I agree. Actually, the only reason I still use Windows is that I can't find good replacements for Photoshop and Flash. I believe Adobe knows that too (and maybe they deserve to earn money for this).

Things may change... I didn't think there will be an Office Suite that could replace Microsoft's solution and then came OpenOffice (and now LibreOffice). GIMP is not ready to do this to Photoshop. Not yet but it will :)

In reply to:

ozan yigit: it is unfortunate that a sizable portion of the professional photographers and the comic book industry digital ink and color still depend on this beast and feel the need to keep up with the upgrades as if the difference between (say) cs4 and cs5 made *all the difference* to their art and craft. as more and more processing moves to capable workflow software, where adobe has good competitors, including a good open-source solution, it is not surprising adobe is trying to eek out as many dollars as possible from its rapidly shrinking user base. i'm kind of surprised that adobe hasn't introduced a per-core license for creative suite yet.

Thank you. I will test it tomorrow.
... and congratulations / thanks for helping with the development!
