On article Nikon D5600 review: making connectivity a snap? (342 comments in total)
In reply to:

Steve in GA: I have been considering replacing my D7100 with a new Nikon DX body, but after reading your review, the D5600 will not be the one I buy.

And, by the way Nikon, I'm sure there are people who want to share photos from their DSLR instantly, but not me. I have a smartphone for that.

@ Steve in GA -- I know what you mean. I actually did it. I got a 50mm f/1.8 D for about 70 bucks, 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 unstabilized zoom (that Thom Hogan praises) for 150 bucks and a 85mm f/1.8D for $250. I also found a dirty cheap 19-35mm f/3.5-4.5 Cosina for wide angle. I got no tele lenses since I don't really need them.

This is a “poor man’s” set-up but it has served me well. Selling your DX lenses would bring you some cash for stabilized FX lenses...

Why don't get a second hand D600/D610? The step-up in image quality is fantastic. ¢2 from my experience..

You can get a good body for 500 bucks:

endofoto: Nikon, canon and Sony are lagging behind Pentax in every segment of DSLR. Nikon and Sony have serious quality check problems at the construction and dont care about defective units after sale. Canon has poorer sensors and too expensive. I think Pentax has much more specs to offer at the same price and killing these 3 guys.

Having used and owned Pentax K-x and K-01 I can say that lenses are a weak area of Pentax. They seem to be more expensive and not as much available as the Nikon and Canon lenses. I found this a problem for my limited budget. Otherwise, I really liked both of them. They had really great image quality!

ShreedharHegde: I do not understand the need the for this new camera when D5500 is almost new in the market. It would have been great to see more innovation with new releases as too many new names with same specs create lot of chaos in the camera market.
I do not see much differences in the D5000 series after D5200 except D5500 entered with weather proof body. New designs and sizes of DSLR don't sell out like new design smartphones in the market. It needs more innovation along with design to succeed (Like Apple does with every new iPhone (?))

I've read reviews saying that the latest models are faster in operation compared to the older 5000 series models. This especially between D5200 and D5300.

TimelordXYZ: Page 3 states there is a 'pentaprism hump'.

Does the D5600 have a pentaprism OVF or a pentamirror OVF?

It has a pentamirror as the other 5000 series models:

In reply to:

deep7: " For those who wanted an SLR-like camera..." Um, this IS an SLR!! Sony might call it an SLT but it's a single lens reflex camera either way.

Early this year, I bought the very similar E20. What an amazing camera! The feel of it in your hand is a revelation. Very, very few cameras feel this good. It just makes you want to use it all the time. Image quality is pretty decent, though the shadow noise is hard to control. The lens is gorgeous. A glacially slow but utterly charming camera. And you can still buy new batteries easily.

If it ever stops working, I'll just use it as a hammer.

I still have one and it is in impeccable condition. Anyhow, I decided to list it on eBay:

sapporodan: Slightly off topic but regarding the quality of Olympus images.

I found a load of photos I took on my old Olympus E-1, and was shocked to see how beautiful the images still looked, there is a wonderful colour and ‘Pop’ to them. Ok it was only 5mp but wow they look beautiful!

Going back to my modern Olympus (Ok it’s an E-M5) and the images just look more processed and digital and really rather flat :(
People are saying the image quality is great and yes it is, but dam those old Kodak sensors were good!

I want the E-M1 to take pictures like the E-1 :)

yes. Do you remember Fuji S3 Pro. With its SuperCCD sensor you captured beautiful photos. Those CCD colors:

Phillip Lynch: I will never ever never forgive them for killing Aperture,they haven't realize that one software have made a lot of photographer bypass the mac pro.

If I remember right Adobe threatened them to discontinue supporting OS X platform feeling being stepped on their toes by Apple with their photo editing programs. iPhoto got more and more features of Photoshop and Aperture was competing Lightroom. Apple caved in under the pressure from Adobe...

Osa25: Or you could just pick up an NX500 on closeout....and avoid this water-treading masquerading as innovation.

Having used extensively Sony's 16-50 pancake on Nex-F3, Fuji's 16-50 XC on X-A1 & X-M1 and Samsung's 16-50 on NX500 I can say that the Fujinon is the best of them. NX 16-50 is the runner-up being prone to flare and a bit softer. Sony's pancake is sharpish in the centre and lags behind in sharpness. All these lenses suffer from CA.

Just my 2¢s...

Cheers!

Nigel Tafferham: Sad but true, on the web a 35mm sensor shot looks no better than a 1/2.3" shot, but sometimes better than a cell-phone shot.

Those iphone prize winning pics, imagine if taken with a 'real' cam a m43, aps-c, 35mm, med format cam, then those pics would look great MUCH larger on a wall, even up close - but very likely NOT those cell-phone pics.

Of course cell-phone pics hearken back to the Old 110 days, pics only good enuf for a 3" x5" or so print.

The cam makers should hope that cell-phone pics can lead the user to 'real' cams some day soon !!

After getting a D600 after one of the best APS-C made and seeing the step up in Image quality it made me wonder how much more in image quality would a medium format camera give.

I have also a compact camera and a modern Android smartphone so I know what they can do. I'm quite sure cell phones will never reach full frame cams in IQ. The physical advantage of large sensors is just too big...

On article Beta: try out our new 'light' color scheme (722 comments in total)

I prefer the light color scheme. The white text on the black background stay on retina and really disturbs when checking the photos.

White is a bit too “light”. I think light grey would be maybe even better that white.

Fantastic low light performance!

PKDanny: What size do SD Quattro H's sensor?

Here's some more info:

"The biggest differentiation between the Sigma sd Quattro and the sd Quattro H is the latter's 26.6 x 17.9mm APS-H sized sensor, providing a crop-factor of about 1.3x instead of the 23.5 x 15.5mm APS-C version's 1.5x crop factor."
