gphome: The future is mirrorless, everyone sees it, as shown in the sales

Size was never an issue for me, I cant make my hands smaller. However reduce the weight to 1/3 of current weights for bodies and now we are talking.

Have Sony done that? NO, the cameras weigh (mirror less to DSLR) within 20% of the same. Look at the A9.

Whats the point ? Its not compelling for me at all.

In reply to:

beatboxa: What was this supposed to convey? That a more expensive camera doesn't help one specifically in framing a better studio shot?

This had nothing to do with the features that most 'better' systems offer: things like autofocus speed, buffer performance, sharpness, tonality, dynamic range, noise performance, depth of field control, ergonomics & controls, build quality, etc.

It's sort of like comparing a basic car to a sports or luxury car--with the comparison being: "Can you get from 'point a' to 'point b' with either car, assuming flat pavement and no curves?"

The correct conclusion is not along the lines of 'Therefore, the equipment is irrelevant.'

I look at this differently, having excellent equipment means that any screwups cant be put down to the equipment holding me back. Its just me that sucks...

Awesome, maybe Nikon can buy what's left cheap and redirect Capture NX 2, Google helped wreck a great Raw converter for nothing...

tektrader: Its ENORMOUS, How is that micro 4/3rds ???

For a camera that size and lenses that big it may as well be full frame..

Are you an idiot? Its looks huge or are you blind....

This looks like the same technology that was used in the Amazon smart phone for viewing 2d images in 3 d on its front screen.....

If the raw processor is as good as before it will be horrible. As an editor I have used CNX2 and Paintshop pro for years. They compliment each other pretty well.

Each has its own use and for that they are great

samfan: Nikon adding features via fw, eh? That's new. Seems like they finally fired the old management and hired someone competent.

Well if they fixed the trap focus function then this is well worth it.....

On article Nikon AW1 First Impressions Review (591 comments in total)

Would love to know how many people who commented have used a V1 or V2.

I bought a V1 cheap and it has surprised the hell out of me with the PQ. It really is quite good. The build quality is excellent. Sensor size isn't everything and until you try one you should hold your tongues dissing the product.

As someone else said. This will be the king of point and shoot water proof cameras, The existing P&S cameras are just toys compared to the AW1

peevee1: No stabilization. Underwater tripod anyone?

You shouldn't need VR on an underwater camera used under water. The water damps movement quite well.

Well done NIKON, find a niche and exploit it. The rest of the so called waterproof and shockproof cameras are toys compared to this.

Excellent.......

On article US Judge rules for Eggleston in dispute with collector (300 comments in total)

No the artist should have stuck with the original limited quantity of prints. If I was SOBEL I would have sued as well. This is a disgusting misuse of ownership. The copy wasnt even scanned from a negative.

Anyone could have done a print scan and reprinted. This is Wrong.

It has destroyed any credibility the photographer has for future limited print runs.
