On article Elevating X-Trans? Fujifilm X-T2 Review (2086 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ayoh: How do they justify a $600 price premium over a Sony a6300 when they essentially have the same specs?

That's how markets work. The seller can charge whatever they like, and you can buy, or not.

On article A classic reinvented? Domke Chronicle Review (122 comments in total)

That has to be the ugliest Domke bag that I've ever seen. The orange accent and expandable pockets are awful! And the price! I can buy a Billingham for less.

Frank_BR: "The top shutter speed for the new body is 1/1000 sec, but with the new HC lens range that decreases to 1/2000 sec..." (DPR)

When you go from 1/1000 sec to 1/2000 sec, the exposure time decreases but the shutter speed increases!

Focal plane shutters are faster, but flash sync is slow. Leaf shutters, on the other hand, sync at all speeds and are superior for flash work.

snapa: That HAS to be one one the ugliest cameras ever made. At least they did finally make a much better sensor with some great handling. It also does have very nice IQ and low light capability! Too bad they are asking so much for it.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Dismayed: Whatever. But did they really have to put 'Solutions' in the name of the new company? It seems to be the latest MBA idiocy.

I see it cropping up all over consulting company web sites. Just another fad.

Skipper494: Can never understand why people think that a third party knows a camera manufacturer's RAW algorithm better than the camera manufacturer and, of course, the latter's converter comes free.

Sorry, Dougbm_2, but Nikon Capture NX2 is dead. It's only useful if you intend to never buy a new camera or update to a newer OS. I liked it, even if it was horribly slow. But it's time to move on.

Mateus1: Everything is great about X-E2 apart from plastic and "waxy" high iso jpg oefrormance.... 3200-6400 images look terrible, no details, they are worse compared to X-E1. In this area X-E2 is a big dissapointment... it's is sad that Fujifilm is deaf to all pleas of many X-E2 users to solve it in new firmware.

Well-known problem with Fuji jpg. Shoot RAW and you'll be fine.

The price point is absurd when compared to the Sony NEX or to the Samsung NX lines.

On article Nikon D4s First Impressions Review (1032 comments in total)
In reply to:

sierranvin: How interesting, Nikon. @ $400/MP, this fab D4s is equivalent to the Sony a7R being priced at $14,400! Except the a7R only costs $2,300, or $63/MP!
Who's your friend?

(And thanks in advance to everybody who is about to tell me MP don't matter...)

Sounds as if you'd be happiest with a cell phone camera. You'll minimize your $/MP.

On article A travel-sized large-format 4x5 camera? (219 comments in total)

I'd opt for a Crown Graphic instead. Much more capable and flexible, and only a bit heavier.
