On article FAA bans drones from flying near 7 nuclear facilities (121 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mike CH: The point is probably not really about dropping bombs on places or surveillance or some such but rather something else:

Drone users have been making too much of a nuisance of themselves and now the backlash is coming.

I thought the people at Columbine High and countless other places would have made enough of a nuisance of themselves to make someone act, even if only out of spite...

Oh, well... drones are dangerous, after all.

Akgbkd: Pixel 2... Best camera for parents

@anticipation

That is based on the assumption that everyone can sit in the front row... 5-10m can make a big difference for smartphones, since they have a fixed, wide-ish angle focal length.

In reply to:

O_O: I guess that F22 allows more background details. With a slower shutter speed, the motion blur effect is much stronger.

An F-22 would have been faster, I think... so, yeah, more blur! :P

ZeBebito: I don’t see Pentax in any Guide which I find odd. Why??

Socanikolysonic take so much better-er pictures!

So, an interesting tech preview, at best.

Thanks for the interesting trip!

Scottelly: Does anyone else see that the Pentax K1 is conspicuously missing from this list? It has advantages over the Nikon D750, and costs the same, right? How did the D750 make this list, but the Pentax K1 didn't?

...if you say so...

snapa: I wish DPR would stop trying to tell us what cameras/lenses to buy and spend more time and energy posting full reviews of them. That way, we can all decide for ourselves what is best for our own personal needs.
I'm just getting a bit tired of having someone else tell me what they think "I" should buy. If you look at the first page on DPR, there is at least 10 articles trying (hinting) to buy something, and only 1 review, of a PHONE! :-/

@ZeBebito They have to make everyone happy... they are decent folks and near Christmas we all are... uhm... good-er? :-P

K-1 has AF too (I got the joke...), it's just that they couldn't figure out how to use it XD

Same goes for pixel-sihft... it took 'em a good year to learn, just in time for the Sony version of it.
I would have liked to see the results produced by a Sony shooting foliage and a waterfall, with their uhm... curious implementation, that requires 30" between shots in PS mode... sadly they chose a static scene this time around.

In reply to:

Life recorder: ....and the gear heads here will rave about how awesome that 8k video looks on their 2.5K and 4k monitors. Forget the content... You must zoom in to 100% to fully appreciate video (and stills)!

@panther fan

I never said that. They can push the envelope as much as they like, the few people with capable displays will benefit from that.

At every given moment in time _and_ for every given person there is a sweetspot.

Moreover, at every given moment in time there is mainstream tech, and there is cutting-edge tech, which tends to be intrinsically inconvenient, and disproportionately expensive.

8K is not convenient, is not cheap, and is definitely not my quality/cost/space efficiency sweetspot.
It's there, nonetheless.

In reply to:

Bobthearch: "Dear Man and Lady,
We are sorry but due to unforeseen circumstances we are unable to deliver your images as promised. Attached is a zip file of all the images submitted to us from your event and a refund check."

How hard is that? Why do some people insist on being thieving scammers?

Because they like money more than reputation and integrity?

On article Sigma's new 16mm F1.4 will cost $450, ships this month (359 comments in total)

I agree with the comments below... that isn't expensive at all...

Nice for those who can use it (even though it's kinda two different lenses based on crop... I'd personally like something like this on APS-C more than on m4/3, just based on personal taste).

Has DPReview always been such a toxic place? I don't remember it that way...
