On article Nikon's official D850 lens recommendation list (310 comments in total)
In reply to:

D7000ShooterUK: I bet my cheapo, plastic AF 50mm f1.8 D stopped down a little would be better than some of the lenses on this list!

So true. 50 mm f/1.8 D is a capable lens.

So no primes between 28 and 105mm..?

As a Nikon user I can just say "shame on you Nikon". Poorly done.

Where are the camera sensor tests...? Latest camera sensor review in June!

Joystick is a very nice addition. The grip looks just too small...

In reply to:

Axel114: I'm always disappointed in the choice of samples. Why can't we have a distance shot of a skyline or something where it's actually interesting to look at the detail?

More from Mr. Hogan:

“With the last few Sony cameras, particularly the A9, Sony Imaging began talking about "exclusive Sony sensors." Note that Sony Imaging makes cameras, they don't "make" sensors. The group that actually manufactures sensors at Sony is a different company, Sony Semiconductor...

...Fujifilm has added their phase detect technology and their own color filtering to Sony Semiconductor sensor IP. Olympus has added their phase detect technology and a few other twists to Sony Semiconductor sensor IP. Sony Imaging has added close connections between the Stacked layer and their BIONZ processor to Sony Semiconductor sensor IP.

In other words, everyone is picking and choosing base Sony Semiconductor IP and adding to it, integrating it differently, and even transmitting it differently off the chip.”

@ ProfHankD:
Mr. Thom Hogan has quite a good insight into sensor manufacturing process. In his blog he says:
..Nikon claims they designed the sensor themselves. What that means is that they licensed a number of IP bits (the copper writing, the BSI, the dual gain, probably the sensels, and I'm sure some other things). Then they added and modified what they needed. In this case, mostly the electronics that lie behind the light collection and the way the data is handled and moved off the sensor. There may be more, I don't know yet. But clearly Nikon's behind-the-photosite electronics are different than those in other sensors….
…So, let's get back to the D850 sensor. Who made it? It appears to have been fabbed in the Sony/Toshiba plant at first glance. It clearly has many Exmor-inherited aspects to it. But it also clearly has many Nikon-only design elements. So who designed it? Nikon.”

"While Nikon contracts with a silicon foundry to actually manufacture the chips, Nikon confirmed that the D850's sensor is entirely their own design, vs. an off-the-shelf unit from a sensor manufacturer."

34 points, (including 10 times 3 and twice 2) to D5 and 19 to each of the rest!

Great video.

I liked most Brandon's shots, followed by Jessica and Dani neck to neck.

Several incredible shots—thanks for posting! Quite some softness in the corners at f/1.8, though.

On article Fujifilm X-A3 Review (238 comments in total)
In reply to:

ggc: I have an XM1 and i consider it a really great camera.

From this review i don't understand if this XA3 is worser, or better. Does it have an antialias filter?

Also would like to better understand the buffer, the review isn't complete about it, with jpeg, raw+jpeg and jpeg.

Among the possible problems i have found with my XM1 use, and i would like to understand if they will affect also xa3:

1) bracketing is limited to +-1ev.
2) with non dedicated flash, using syncro flash shutter speed, the display turns nearly black after middle pressing the shutter (it simulates an exposure without flash). But flashes up to 200 or so volts are allowed, so even really old flashes are usable.

(to follow)

Yes, ±1 EV:

GOVA: Have used X-A1 since it was introduced. I also have D800, D810 and 1D.

It often shocks me that upon returning from vacations, it is hard to tell apart photos from X-A1 and D8xx series in terms of any significant IQ.

It is that good. I am sure that X-A3 has not worsened much.

@GOVA: I have used X-A1 for years. I bought my first X-A1 in August '15 and my 2nd X-A1 last year. When comparing images from it with ones from D600 I can say that yes, outdoors shots have almost identical image quality. When shooting indoors the situation is very different. D600 just excels there. Also, X-A1 does some "baking" of RAW files leading to softness at higher ISOs. Otherwise they look excellent:

"Fujifilm X-A1 - Is this the best low light camera for under $1500? (even though it only costs $499?)"

On article Shooting experience: how the Nikon D7500 won me over (196 comments in total)

Thanks for the story. Nikkor 85 mm f/1.8 D is my favorite lens when shooting concerts. Either on my D600 or manually my Fuji X. It is also quite inexpensive!

msamir: It seems to me that the D7500 is sharper and cleaner than the D7200 at high iso.

http://www.imaging-resource.com/news/2017/06/02/nikon-d7500-first-shots-the-d7200-followup-is-here-but-how-will-it-perform

True. On the other hand, D500 seems to be cleaner at ISO 6400. I wonder if they tweak the sensors of these two different way, giving better treatment to D500? Reminds me back in the day of their release of D90 and D300...

In reply to:

Bambi24: All of these shots really could have been made on a smartphone, which tend to be around 28mm equivalent.

They're not demanding on the AF system, nor were they shot in challenging lighting conditions.

I like the shots, it's not that, but they could have been made on any camera or smartphone.

@Bambi24:
Perhaps the best side of the iPhone's photos is the great depth of focus, thanks to its small sensor. Other than that the images are very noisy, the ISO25 shot being cleanest—naturally. ISO 500 and 640 shots are already terrible, lacking details and looking more like water color paintings:

One shouldn't go beyond ISO640 with that cam. My ¢2...

Cheers.

Very good image quality for a smartphone camera. Iso 3200 looks quite horrible, though.

Why no photos of people indoors with higher ISO? That's something we do with the phones. I'd like to see the image quality of those shots.

That second dial on the top looks like on Nikon D600.

Hannu108: “Thanks to the noise reduction, it even punches above its sensor size and price bracket, showing a similar performance to a D750”

I wonder where they got it...

I meant:
Where did the DPReview staff get the idea of KP having similar performance comparable to that of D750?

If you check the image you'll see that ISO 6400 of KP is quite noisy compared with that of D750 and the noise pattern shows ugly artefacts of noise suppression... and that's a RAW file!
