rfsIII: The level of detail on some of those photos—like the white windows set in the brick wall, and the drowning baby trying to pull itself up on the wet rock—is amazing even for today. But that's what's cool about this series, we're seeing how incredibly innovative and technically accomplished even the earliest digital cameras were.
It must have been a treat to get a front row seat to a technological and creative revolution.

BB- His post was enough in its own right.... (scared face)

Photoman: Forgot to mention how badly some M lenses focused with the M8. Try meters not centimeters out of focus.

Piotr Krochmal: Crisis? start to invest Ricoh! I have my precious K1. I love it but tracing AF is a joke. Yes its best for architecture But I had to buy Laowa 12mm lens. Why are you making pentamron 15-30? make something like Canon 17TS :).

I think you'd be better off emailing Ricoh with that reply ;)

This makes me want to buy a K1 or Office Copier. Just to help Ricoh. I love the people I met in the camera division that work there. Kaz and Keith, I hope for the best!

T3: The entire Sony FF mirrorless system is younger than the Canon 6D. The first A7 was introduced in October 2013. The Canon 6D was introduced in September 2012. That's how crazy fast Sony is moving. Who knows, Sony might even introduce the A9 MKII before Canon introduces the 6D MKII, LOL. Probably not likely, but if they did it wouldn't surprise me.

Negative. I thought your comments were we'll.... incendiary.

I use all brands of cameras these days. Have for quite a while. I have an RX10 converted to full spectrum, canon DSLR, olympus, you name it, I have it. I am brands... loyal, not brand loyal.

You really expect me to answer that question after you format it like that?

Well of course both of you would disagree with me, you use Sony's- duh!

What does my preference have to do with yours, at all?

And I'd still take a Canon 6D over any of the FF Sony's :)

I think you should look at the definition of unfair is. Both candidates were subject to the same rules and regulations we have for our election process. One lost, one won- according to those rules. Unfair states (and is incorrect) that one candidate did not follow rules. If you don't like those rules, then vote on changing them (if you live in america) otherwise, nothing was unfair about the election process.

Funny that he won all the primaries too, and nobody ever talks about the fact that there was influence in those either. Dems got beat, fair and square. But if you cant play fair......

On article New Sony a9 firmware fixes overheating warning (85 comments in total)
In reply to:

rz350: As much as you all troll, there is nothing that stands between a Sony fanboy and his Sony. Look at Rishi and DPR. The cameras may have their flaws (as do all cameras), but you are a lower form of life if you do not own and use a Sony. I feel so honoured to be able to participate and learn about the greatness of Sony at DPR. Maybe some day I can aspire to own one. In the mean time I will have to make do with my Nikon and Olympus and Panasonic.

I also disagree. DPR are in the business of reviewing cameras and sharing news and evaluating products the industry provides. How dare they be enthusiastic about cameras (from all manufacturers) or developments, especially when a company like Sony are working so hard at making a name for themselves. Put aside their mistakes, you have to give them credit for making a niche for themselves. But blaming DPR for being enthusiastic or singling out someone like that is wholly wrong and cowardice.

cgarrard: Why is 4K video really being pushed? :)

Love the reply too, very well put. Not many are actually using 4k but scaling it down to look better at 1080 p :) I asked it in hopes it could be explained exactly as such and others would read it :).

Its evident to me as well this indeed happened to Danny, but whether or not its an isolated case, that is the question. :)

Imaging Resource podcast discusses the A9 and "overheating" discussion. Obviously more people need to test it in more environments, an indoor boxing match isn't necessarily an ideal way to test the limits of sports shooting. It's a good discussion.

No evidence you're right. It was all photoshopped. :)
