randfee2: why don't you put the 5D3 up as comparison... one shouldn't be hard to come by and that is probably the comparison most people (owners) would like to see.


You can change any camera in that test. It is an interactive comparison. You can change the cameras, the iso, you can pan across the image, etc. .

On article Back to the action: Nikon D500 Review (1135 comments in total)

If this camera was released by Canon, everybody would go crazy over it with praises and encouragements. If this D500 had a 7D mk III badge, people would call it revolutionary, cutting edge and divine technology crafted by the mighty Canon engineers. But since it came from Nikon we get the same lamenting comments. I like when people find excuses when something is missing from Canon (cough 4K) but when others add it its too much, or I don't need it.
I like and shoot both Canon and Nikon, but this my impression of the public opinion.

In reply to:

Knoxis: Good photos? Sure. They're good. Except for that one shot at Yosemite where there was a star trail in the middle of a bright, blue-skied day. You don't see stars at such a bright time of the day. Or at least I've never seen that happen. It just feels unnatural. Maybe Taylor added the stars in during post processing, as part of his "artistic license", but it really feels fake to me.

Also, all art, including photography, is subjective. I suggest those playing off the negative comments as "insecurity" to keep that to themselves, because there's no way one person's photographs can please everybody. To you it may look like the work of a prodigy, but to me they look just good. There's no reason why I should feel threatened by someone else's work, since it is only my work that can prove how good I am.

Knoxis you should master the basics of photography before trashing this young photographer.

davidit: Always be nteresting to hear the "who has the best editing platform" argument. Should be the who can make my photos look better argument. Seriously how would you guys even have made a living in the film days with your heavy reliance on post editing? If you cannot use one of your photos straight out of your camera without running it through software then you should give up. The only editing i do is cropping.
You should all take a step back and learn how to take good photos rather than waste your time arguing about editing.

:) Just saying.

On article Benchmark Performance: Nikon D810 review (2000 comments in total)
In reply to:

TheBaldEagle: I wish/hope that the new high ends Nikon Cameras (like D810) have at least 4K video output (even in APS-C crop size) for other recorders in order to compete well with Sony Alpha 7S and others 4K capable cameras because 4K is the future (next several years) for high end video!

I wish the D810 replacement ( D900 ) has NO VIDEO. I never shot video and never will.
The point is: the world is not revolving around one's needs. In this moment all the gear in the world is superb ( Canon, Nikon, Sony, etc. ) stop complaining and pick a system AND USE IT.

In reply to:

Just a Photographer: According to Nikons' current naming convention.
The D800 was flawed, why else call it D810?

Everything off late that has the x10 naming with Nikon had hardware problems.

Too bad that current D800 owners will now know there will be no firmware updates to their beloved camera anymore and that they have a EOL product after only two years.

You do understand that all new products have flaws. Early adopters often have to pay a price and encounter all sorts of issues. Yes some models had this problem, but as a percentage I don't think this was such a big deal.

In reply to:

Alejandro del Pielago: Some posts are so filled with bitterness... about everything, but not everything applicable in this case.

Get all the information, then judge.

So many people don`t use the available information, but just a black liver to judge.

It's just sad. People judge so easily, yet they don't know all the facts. They didn't bother looking at the whole series of photos. They didn't try to process all the information and don't know what was wrong in the photo description. This thread is a ridicule to photography and photojournalists. An absurd rant driven by ignorance and lack of knowledge.
