  • Replied in I have one!
    So, I have a Z6 (as well as Nikon DSLRs). And I mostly shoot F-mount AF-G & AF-E lenses, too. I like the Z6 quite a bit. My two main pats on the Z back: 1/ It's fantastic for light-weight video or ...
  • It's not an "attack" to notice that the FTZ adapter can't focus many f-mount lenses, such as the entire AF-D catalog. That's just stating a fact. If you say that it can, you are lying. If you say ...
  • Answer: Don't bend-over backward making MILCs. If you're a stills shooter, you can carve circles around pretty much anything made by anyone with a D850. Can you out-track an A7R3? Yup. And you're ...
  • Replied in The Fuss
    The fuss is about all the AF-D lenses the FTZ can't focus, which comprise more than half the Nikon autofocus lens back catalog, and which many Nikon photographers would like to continue using. It's ...
  • I think zero. But . . . What if Nikon put a phase-detect-capable image sensor + Expeed 6 processor in an F-Mount DSLR body? You flip the mirror up into live view, and voilà: you have the Z6 / Z7 ...
  • @PhilippeC95: a "balanced" $2000 - $3000 camera body, in 2019, offers "usable" subject tracking capability.

    Or at least that's what DPReview's other 89% grades would lead me to expect, given that...

  • Wait wait wait . . .

    "The Z-series cameras don't have what I consider a usable or reliable subject tracking mode."

    Is this really something you're gonna say about a camera you just scored 89%?...

  • Yet another bag advertisement starring all the coolest cats in the game, and not a lens hood in sight.

    Seriously, why don't the bag designers *ever* depict a gear load-out including lens hoods?...

  • Get the iMac. With the iMac you get an AMD Radeon Pro GPU with 8GB of GDDR5 memory. The Mac mini uses integrated graphics. You'll feel the difference in all kinds of software, from editing RAW in ...
  • Replied in Mr. Mischief
    I see what you did there—well stirred, sir; well stirred. We’ll see glove slaps and ten paces before noon.
  • Yeah, like this thread: wherein, a bunch of grown men anonymously berate each other over a $125 camera lens. I'm with ya, man. One of the problems with DPReview is what we'll call the "inflation of ...
  • Replied in Edging the D5
    As Brian's shot demonstrates--look at the EXIF: he shot the above frame with a D5. A DSLR. So much for the extreme edge-focusing being a problem . . . . ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • Well, there's always " Mr. Robot !" Which is kind of a masterclass in the ecstasy and agony of framing subjects in the outer thirds of one's frame. The whole point of doing so is to produce ...
  • I disagree, completely. I think the cratering sales figures this spring prove the niche isn't nearly big enough to support the new ecosystems Nikon and Canon are trying to build--but the issue is ...
  • More and more people? You mean all five of them? I kid, I kid. Except that I don't. There isn't some giant crowd of DSLR shooters out there who are trampling down gates to try and switch to ...
  • Speaking as a Z6 shooter: The "Z" cameras don't break much new ground in the market--that's the fundamental problem. What does a Z6 do that a Sony A7.3 doesn't? What does a Z7 do that a Sony A7.3R ...
  • Replied in Bubbly Bubbles
    Here's how to understand my photographic gear list, best: dumb, blind luck dropped me within a thick-walled bubble of many privileges, which I haven't been particularly self-conscious about indulging.
  • I don't think marketers are "pandering" to children. Marketers care hugely about the teen-set because they're developing habits and expectations that will create big adult spending behavior in just ...
  • Guys, here's the test: You hand your Canon and your transfer-app-equipped / set-up phone to a 13 year-old, and you say, "Hey, go shoot some photographs!" The 13-year old says, "Great, but why do I ...
  • No argument from me. In fact, hold my beer . . . Camera-lens-flash pricing practices are indeed totally, completely bonkers , and the irrationality around initial pricing, inventory, and rapid ...
