On article Ricoh GR IIIx sample gallery (152 comments in total)
In reply to:

(unknown member): So the only thing I notice at higher ISO is that Ricoh is applying RAW-noise reduction (after examining the raws). This must be their "accelerator" tech or whatever it is they want to call it. I wish there was a way to completely turn that off and let some programs take over or let Iridient Digital use B&W with super pointy data.

Still looks good but wish we had that option.

Yeah, what's the point of having a RAW file if it's not truly RAW? Won't stop me from buying this, tho....

Barney, in certain countries/cultures (even individuals), "are" is considered proper as the OP has used the term.

drummercam: "Your valuable time wasted"? Pixel shift is going to be a planned shot, including the time. Only if one expects something as small as a camera to contain a something akin to a supercomputer is image compilation going to be much faster. I'm sure the time taken will be justified by the results, not wasted.

Why is the hood on the lens wrong side up in the last photo? CPL adjustment windows are by far preponderantly used on the bottom of the lens, not the top. I suppose showing the window is an excuse, but its presence could have been handled in the text, without looking like someone doesn't know how to attach a hood.

Thank you, @drummercan, for pointing out the upside-down lens hood. I was beginning to think I was the only one who noticed. Apparently, DPR is oblivious...

In reply to:

opiecat: i will no way go into the CC model.
i used to recommend LR, but not with the CC model.

What's a good/better alternative to LR?

SethG, I use Photo Mechanic for asset management. It works well for my needs.

hlritter: The editor in me can't help pointing out that the misapprehended term in the second sentence of the story is not "B-line" but "beeline", meaning a straight line between two places. Per the Oxford English Dictionary, "with reference to the straight line supposedly taken instinctively by a bee when returning to the hive." In other words, the finder goes directly to the used-camera section whenever she enters a thrift store.

Misspelling is their greatest “skill.”

$1100 is pretty pricey for a mid-range DSLR body.

Ahhh....I hadn't considered that.

Silver...right next to the score.

Wow! SO MUCH BETTER! This is WAY overdue.

It's a well-established fact that white text on a black background is very hard on the eyes when reading.

Now, about your unwillingness to proofread your articles...

On article Flickr makes Auto-Uploadr tool a Pro-account exclusive (97 comments in total)
In reply to:

quiquae: Any suggestion for a replacement to Flickr as a place to share images with the general public? I do like Flickr's proposition of community-based photo sharing, but their execution of the concept has been rather suspect for some time now.

I do not enjoy 500px as it is way too slanted towards the popularity contest aspect, and too often "the best Photoshopper" contest at that. DPR is too slanted toward gear talk, and few photo sharing opportunity apart from contests. Instagram is, well, Instagram. I generally want to brush up my photos carefully before sharing with the entire world, and Instagram runs exactly counter to that philosophy.

SmugMug is the way to go. Flickr is a waste of time and effort.

Likely MadHamster nailed it.

Amazing how so many folks knock this bag and the company without doing their due diligence in research.

I think someone translated wrong; it's the customer's dollars that are most important for Sony. They could give a rat's behind about customer opinion or customer experience.

BeaverTerror: Incorrect headline, very poor journalism by DPreview staff, maliciously done on purpose to generate page views?

Not the world's shortest zoom lens by a long shot. As the footnote indicates, it's only the shortest DSLR zoom lens.

Journalism and DPReview don't belong in the same sentence.

In reply to:

select: I think the K-3 is the best aps-c on the market, in this color is awesome!
but they should make some more lenses and a FF camera...

An object is not "better" in and of itself--only in regard to how it suits an individual's purpose.

Link | Posted on Jul 27, 2014 at 03:10 UTC

Who cares? These and other cameras can shoot a decent pic at quite high ISOs. Do you think you folks could focus on something important for a change? Perhaps photography, for instance.
