Paging Carey Rose……
Most of his photographs are a hymn to life. He’s also got a superb sense of humor. My wife can tell immediately if his work is featured.

On article Canon EOS M100 review (780 comments in total)

Hi fellows! Sandra brought to the office her newly acquired M100. Now the thing has become a star. Nearly all of us bought one. And we love, love it! At the studio, we all trust Carey Rose; his review was confirmed: great quality shots in friendly colors! Featherlight, Sandra showed her way to carrying it: lens not retracted and acting like a handle. Therefore always ready. I tried it; it’s the best way. Go out and shoot everything. Once at home, reviewing the images in a Thunderbolt monitor it’s got to be one of the greatest pleasures of life.
Obviously, that is what the guys at Canon intended.

Phil Askey! Our photography team looked at the name with reverence. The author of exhaustive, thoroughly accurate and believable reviews. Impeccable and logical system, too. His reviews were like Christmas presents for our team.
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas and again Merry Christmas!

Lars, in Spanish, we say “buscando la mosca en la sopa” meaning “looking for the fly in the soup.” What a bunch of inquisitive comments, obviously by 100% detail peepers, who almost always overlook the soup’s presentation and taste. Thank you the shots; your photographs are beautiful.

On article Benro launches ProAngel line of compact travel tripods (13 comments in total)

Last year in Paris I tried to replace our favorite, heavily used, four year old, super light (but very firm and strong) carbon Benro. It was also very reasonably priced (B&H). After the FNACs we went to most photo stores on Boulevard Beaumarchais. Not one had Benros. But salesmen tried to sell us others starting around triple the cost. Regardless of price, we still want the Benros. They are easy, trusted friends.

We were looking at detail with the dpreview excellent loupe. This baby gives you mind blowing detail. Catherine thought one would need a courtesy soft filter over the lens for portraits, as every peccadillo from the night before will show without it.

JaimeA: We travel quite a bit; Carey Rose's photographs (day, dusk, night) have convinced us this may be the right extra camera to take along.
Does this Canon M5 have an electronic level? Essential to align 2, 3 shots for a photomerge.

Images 36, 37, 53, 91 and 101 address our own scouting concerns perfectly (ISO, varied lens apertures, color, grain, CA, etc.). For our purposes, they are the most meaningful of a very successful set. Thank you!

Thank you for the fast answer.
Just thinking: It would be great if dpreview has you taking additional gallery shots for the Fuji X-T2. The resulting photographs will look at the world with a wide approach; and always in varied conditions of time and weather; outdoors and indoors - your usual way. They would have the right attitude and the eye. So far, we have mostly seen examples of what is news in the camera: focusing, speed and skin tones.

On article Opinion: Enthusiast compacts have finally come of age (471 comments in total)

Recently I started playing with the Fuji XQ2. I just love the camera. Slides easily in and out of my pockets; the on-off switch is perfectly placed; it locks on the target instantly and takes phenomenal pictures with the same lovely colors of its brethren. The sensor is smaller but not as low as a 1/2.3, and it is only 12Mp. But who cares if it is used for medium size prints? The shots are sharp, sharp as the camera also has an excellent IS. The zoom is not as large as other compacts. Who cares, as I am not photographing birds but friends and everything else. I have not experienced any of the frustrations mentioned by the DPR reviewer. This camera is all pleasure during the shoot and certainly after, when seeing the results. Jeff, give it a try! Your mom is worth it. For what it is selling these days, it's a steal.

On article Inching forward? Canon PowerShot G5 X review posted (387 comments in total)

This review carries one of the most satisfying sets of sample images. Practically everything a photographer is interested in is covered.
Portraits near and far (skin color and quality), interiors and exteriors, close ups; various light sources; shots of rest and shots of action. Shots in abundant light and shots in semi-darkness and shots at night; shots of soft materials and shots of hard and shiny metals. Images where the edges can be examined …… and much more. Special thanks, Jeff Keller and Carey Rose.

JaimeA: Good, positive review, insightful, detailed and carefully done. But the photographs! They do a terrible injustice to the camera. Looking like a compendium of friends’ portraits on a trek to a lousy outdoors, many are overexposed, blurry and all horribly composed. There are no corners visible where one can check the sharpness or the resolution. There is no grand interior or for that matter exterior view to appreciate the virtues of the camera. If the review presents a most desirable, superb camera, the photographs shown give it a resounding lie. A friend of ours commented on how nobody on the editorial board thought of removing the offensive image of a man shoving the sole of his shoe to the viewer.
We tested the camera in the Sony showroom in New York (Madison Avenue). Based on that and now amply corroborated by dpreview’s review we will buy a couple.

Having an arsenal of Sony equipment purchased at Sony [Madison Avenue] we were able to bring and use a Sirui tripod for the test. The camera was fitted with the Zeiss 24-70mm. Exposures were done with a 2-second delay by self-timer for minimum vibration. The showroom has floor-to-ceiling windows facing the street and a 3-floor high ceiling full of shiny railings to fit showroom lights. The result is a space that has plenty of contrast and detail and straight lines from top to bottom. Examining the images later, everything stated in the Review is confirmed. A great camera with an outstanding dynamic range.

Talking about photography:
This image lacks class. The family is too orderly, predictable in a bourgeois setting, aligned in an unimaginative way, obviously following instructions [now face the camera! smile!]. The good queen looks diminished. Not a hint of excitement or artistry. Testino has made many memorable images. Not this one. Paging Horst, Beaton!
