On article Second Time Around: Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II Review (261 comments in total)
In reply to:

LackingCommonSensor: I'd like to own a camera like this for JPEGs, not Raw. And I'd bet that the output is and would be satisfying to those owning it. Not everyone is conducting forensic examination of the image files. Some want a camera more versatile than an iPhone, with better image quality and lens. It has that.

DPR, to me anyway, takes a snobbish attitude toward camera reviews, measuring against some elusive standard and idealized photographer.

LOL!

Hey Thematic-
"LackingCommonSensor
Thematic....you went astray of civility by calling my intelligence into question so you might want to stop right there. It's not a joke post. I have long liked DPR, however, I think they need to stick with extreme enthusiast and pro-caliber models as they look to have lost touch with the needs and wants of today's average snap shooter. I suppose an exception to this is prospective users who see themselves as extreme enthusiasts or as having pro-caliber skill set and have an expectation of technical excellence unsurpassed at any price, especially in a sub-$1,000 advanced compact."

I never said stupid, you did. And are you so sure? How do you know for sure? Just a thought. But if you are convinced, then you are. Who am I to say otherwise.

I disagree. The name has nothing to do with the post content.

I'd suggest finding a review site that has the standards you wish for. Good luck!

On article Accusations fly over Fukushima photos (87 comments in total)
In reply to:

Bernard Carns: I once ran across something about one of Ansel Adam images the moon over something having come about because fixer was shot. The image changed later. Hence the inspiration to do it differently. Not as questionable as this. So I agree with the question do you dislike the images if they're questionable. I'd like to see the study of knowing the questionability before or after seeing the images, what people's responses would be. That is a question for a psych phd candidate to explore. Hahaha. (But I do have a bit of an answer).

What.

Truth is known only by he alone, I don't care either way. There are more important matters to be tended too in the world.

In reply to:

nofumble: Sony FE lenses cost an arm and leg. It is a no brainier that SamYang will target Sony mount first.

My first thought too, and, that all will be autofocus. Likely a range of lenses covering common focal lengths with AF.

Fujifilm interviews almost always seem more direct and honest than many others I read. Very refreshing and interesting :)

Ah, so nice, I wish!

Love it. Thanks for sharing DPR ;).
I met Ansel when I was a child before he died. My step father idolized him and took us on a trip to see him. I credit my step father and Ansel's work as a spark that first interested me in photography many years ago.

Terry Breedlove: I never understood the big deal with this image until March of last year when I saw the actual print for the first time. Then my eyes were opened. A beautiful and amazing print it was.

Some things just have to be seen in person to be appreciated.

cgarrard: 70lbs... okay ....Yeah but it weighs nothing in space!

A boat weighs a lot more than 70lbs. So um, yes.
