On article Nikon D3500 sample gallery (258 comments in total)

What's great is that it's so cheap it's almost disposable. So you can be rough with it or even use it in wet or other challenging conditions - who cares. Maybe not as truly waterproof as an iPhone, but with marginally better output probably a good deal.

Something is wrong with the reds in this samples. Maybe the AWB is throwing things off? I love film simulation too, but these samples are not selling the camera to me.

BostonC: The lens' micro-contrast is lacking. A missed opportunity by Sigma.

agreed, but what did you think about the nano and pico contrast? I though those were decent.

In reply to:

(unknown member): I would normally say that 'possibly' this, and 'maybe' that and IMHO etc. But this is absolutely the ugliest gallery I have seen on DPR. Not a single image worth a damn; nothing looks real, every single image looks and feels like an invented approximation of the scene. The pictures look to be designed to maximise immediate visual impact; but not really representative of the subject matter.

It's a phone, so what's it doing here on a photography site? Making money of course, because the effing images are beside the point.

Wow, I've been a weekly+ reader since choosing my canon s40 based on dpreview's review 16 years ago.

This is the best feature you've ever run.

Exactly. It's almost all about the software.

dpreview #fail for not making this the first Platinum camera.

Sony does it again! I hope Canon, Nikon, et al are on watch.

That's a sad attitude. How are you going to learn anything unless you take risks?

(unknown member): Phones are not especially good for anything much more than taking snaps. Most people (the general public) who own a camera-phone are clueless about using theirs properly. Those who shoot video, seem to think that everything is best filmed in portrait mode. I'm really not sure if adding an optical zoom is very important for the average user and in my case, I always carry a decent compact for a possible news event.

That said, I really can't see the problem with building in a modest zoom that operates in a sideways configuration with a prism or mirror system. I suppose it depends on whether or not picture quality is of the slightest importance to you. Many think digital zooming is great!

Why do so many dpreview members act like they are the keepers of photography?

"However, all three customers are expected to be DSLR shooters looking for a smaller, lighter alternative for everyday shooting. "

I'll start by saying these cameras are really cool.
But as an m43 shooter, one of my requirements was diminutive size. There's no space to fill between my phone and my "big camera." I suppose if I was an APS-C or FF (especially) shooter there may be a gap to fill.

Some folks definitely like having every tool available for every job, I understand that mindset exists. But do those people really make up a large enough market to justify a device like this?

Honestly, whenever I rent a movie on amazon I only choose SD, and my screen does 1080. I can tell the difference, but it really doesn't affect my perception of the film. I'd rather spend the extra dollar on some nachos.

ProfHankD: Eek! Nasty flare (and a Bayer-patterned flare spot too) in that motorcycle shot. Actually, in many shots. I suppose starburst lovers will like this, but I don't care for starbursts and the sharp flare patterns are not something I expect in a $750 lens. It looks great when it isn't flaring....

you got it backwards. That kind of flare you have to pay for!

99% thanks for the effort, I enjoyed your awards, keep up the great work.

But come on, in what world would a lens win for product of the year?

You should also throw in a software awards category.
