  • Replied in The Chain
    Well, just for the sake of conversation: It's "much ado about nothing" if you don't believe your labor is worth any share, however small, of the profit it generates. Follow the chain: No moderators ...
  • You saw it differently earlier today, when you wrote: ( https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/63892447 ) "Largely thankless." Lots of labor performed for a subsidiary of one the world's most ...
  • Interesting: DPReview isn't on the volunteermatch.org list. In fact, I can't find any similar profit-generating commercial marketing businesses on that list. I wonder why? If someone would explain ...
  • "Expecting a paycheck" for labor performed is fair, decent, and honorable. "Expecting a paycheck" for labor performed isn't an alternative to some other more decent motives to perform work, and it ...
  • . . . because an organization can't seriously hold volunteers accountable or liable for much. They come, they go, they perform on their terms. Generosity is as capricious as it is lovely. Like all ...
  • What a funny coincidence! Because I've always pictured you as someone who believes he doesn't have the same look and speech as the comic-book guy from the Simpsons . . . .
  • I'm going to stop you right there. There isn't a person on planet earth who hasn't seen this shot a million times before. Which limits its "appeal" to every viewer. This photograph isn't a ...
  • Yawn. Lousy technicals from the camera, but worse: utterly uninspired "ideas" from the photographer behind the camera. A leading centered path and a 50-50 split horizon? I've NEVER seen that before ...
  • (1) On1: plain file handling (2) Affinity: it's a raster image editor that happens to have a RAW conversion module, not a RAW converter / asset-manager like On1 or Capture One. ...
  • Replied in Good story!
    It's a pleasant story. But your numbers are wishful thinking, rooted in ideas about the much larger, more diverse camera market of the past. In today's reality, the number of people who buy any sta ...
  • Meh. I realize that most people at DPReview are brand or format loyalists for whatever reason, but I don't give an eff who makes my kit. Cameras come and go; I'll dance with anybody. I've used and ...
  • Replied in $5499, at least.
    Folks, remember that Canon currently wants $3699 for its five-year-old 5Dsr DSLR. Right now, today. So unless Canon has just decided to sell the R5 as a loss-leader for expensive RF lenses, there's ...
  • In case that name doesn't ring a bell: Pete Souza was the chief White House photographer for Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama. The two most-used lenses in his kit, which he had at the ready at all ...
  • $3499.95? That'd be $200 *less* than Canon wants, TODAY, for its five-year-old 5Dsr DSLR!

    (https://www.adorama.com/ica5dsr.html)

    Somehow I don't think that's how this is going to play out. But...

  • Here’s another hunch missing from this analysis: “the long game” is also about to end with a big leap upward in price.

    $4K? $5K? I’m betting Canon will want closer to 6. Which, of course, licenses...

  • I fail to see any shame in wanting a cheaper R5, in part because the folks who imagine the R5 will go for $3995 are dreaming. Today, April 22 2020, Canon wants $3699 for the 5Dsr DLSR! Only $300 ...
  • As a Z6 and D850 owner, I don't find shooting the DLSR wide-open appreciably more difficult or less accurate/precise in any way that poses a real, practical problem. The AF of both cameras is ...
  • Replied in Humanity.
    You are indeed missing yourself. 1/ When you shoot a phone, you're forced to let the phone's AI and engineers make most of your creative choices for you. Because most of the phone's alleged "image ...
  • . . . when the E-M5 iii came out, insisting on the supposed superiority of themoplastic construction over the older model's mag alloy body? My two favorites have to be: A) this one, where the E-M5 ...
  • . . . he says, two months on the heels of Nikon's latest camera introduction--the D780 DSLR.
