On article DPReview TV: Sony a7R IV Review (414 comments in total)

A question ...

what minimum computer specs do you (reader or DPR) recommend (mac & PC) to handle A7RIV stills -- thinking Lightroom/PShop with a one or two third party filter sets configuration.

On article Sony a7R IV: What you need to know (705 comments in total)

I'm a A7RII owner, main photo venues are landscape, street and museums.I did not purchase the A7RIII due to same sensor as my RII. Tempted by the RIV larger senor however I'd like first to see side by side comparisons of RII or RIII images compared to RIV images. Also wondering if the price on the RII (currently 1500 USDs) makes it one the better bargains available. Any feedback appreciated.

Compelling, dramatic image. The heightened exposure from the base to midway up the 'Mites' seals the deal for me - fine work, thank you for sharing

Beautiful and inspiring work. Number 7 is a real stunner.
I'm a year away from 70 solar revolutions, still hiking, however must admit my load tolerance is decreasing with each passing year (month?). A pleasure to see the OM-D E-M5 crank out such fine imagery. My hiking cam is the Fuji X-T1 + 18-55 kit lens. When I decide to go extra light I pocket a Ricoh GR. Their sole limitation is the geezer behind the lens.

Speaking of glass towers check out this story from New York's WNYC public radio -- http://www.wnyc.org/story/shadows/?utm_source=Newsletter%3A+WNYC+Daily+Newsletter&utm_campaign=ea6ad5c5b9-Daily_Brief_Jan_27_20141_26_2014&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_edd6b58c0d-ea6ad5c5b9-68621573
For a deeper understanding of NYC history watch Ric Burns "New York: an eight-part, 17½ hour, documentary.
NYC has always been a city unafraid to change - often for the better, sometimes much less so - the demolition of the old Penn Station in 1963 was architectural murder yet it spurred on activists like Jane Jacobs to act as watchdogs for neighborhoods and culture.

rb59020: More bad news, Moose Peterson can't stove raving about the Df.


Go to the link, scroll down and read Moose's reviews - is there any lens or body he dislikes? And ya know what - he's right! With proper technique and correctly selected gear, current cams and glass will successfully get the job done. The Df is no exception - its D4 sensor will crank out splendid images especially in low light situations. As to the Df's 'retro' layout, some shooters will be turned on, others turned off, however I'd wager for most us it's a neutral response. So why all the fuss & chatter? IMO the answer is VALUE. The Df is priced about 50 USDs below the D800 and about 250 USDs above the 800e. If the lower weight and better ISO performance works for you -- go for it. The Df is a wonderful image making machine. I must mention another issue with Df VALUE. Lurking 750 USDs below the Df is the D610 and of course for the brave of heart there are D600 bodies 1200-1300 USDs below Df prices.
Happy holidays and as we NYC street walkers like to say - 'shoot' a stranger everyday.

Press Correspondent: Nikon is not as dumb as it seems: baby boomers are entering the nostalgic age. They've taken enough pictures already, they just need to hold something familiar that they can still recognize. 16 mp? Oh, my... Some may need new reading glasses.

Gotta agree --- as a certified B. Boomer there are indeed moments when I yearn to hold something familiar that I can still recognize. Not sure I can remember what to do with it but if I can recognize it -- that's a win.

(unknown member): This camera is competent, but no more. Hell it should be excellent! A triumph of marketing over substance. pricing really is plain silly: With Christmas special offers you can get a D800 for less. Hard choice guys?

This is designed to appeal to a certain market: Dare I say Footballers Wives? More money than sense: All fur coat and no knickers?

Agree with your appraisal and gotta love that final sentence.

Sony RX1R - Zeiss Sonnar T* 35mm f/2.0 mated to a 24MP full frame sensor.
Expensive? Oh yea, however images are superb - all in a very carryable package. Fixed lens cameras allow engineers to optimize the glass/sensor relationship. Hope more are on the way.

My Sony RX1R snaps --
