On article Benchmark Performance: Nikon D810 review (1984 comments in total)

As a travel/architectural/landscape photographer, I can't be happier with the D810. Formerly, as a Canon shooter, I had to struggle a lot with the CR2 files (or had to bracket for HDR), and now the incredible quality and DR of the D810 raw files are speeding up my workflow quite a bit, even if I still miss some of my stellar Canon L glass...

I don't know you, guys, but I'm not impressed by the sample images. Firstly, they don't remind me of the daguerrotype look at all (of course, and assuming the optics are similar, they are only a part of the daguerrotype process). Secondly, I don't like those quirky aperture effects. So, even if I am keen on trying (and somehow collecting) strange and special lenses, I think I won't be tempted by this one...

I'm clumsy, sure, but I am unable to figure how you can make, with such a head, the fine, 3 axis adjustments you usually do with geared heads...

I am eagerly waiting for my 300mm pf lens to arrive (there is little to no stock at all everywhere, as all you know). These samples look like average snapshots, I've seen much better samples on flickr and so...

In reply to:

mediasorcerer: My personal feeling is, that with some sensors,[the better quality ones] the noise can actually be pleasant and an artistic asset rather than a detraction depending on how why and where its used.

This really is a great article and just the sort of interesting and useful information many photographers may want and need, although im just some stranger, and already aware of the paradoxical iq juggling act between iso s/p and ap/, im going to politely insist you pat yourselves on the back for taking the time to explain and bring this concept to the readers attention.
I hope you produce more like it.

Agreed! I have recently switched from Canon to Nikon mostly because of what you mention. I noticed that in Nikon images (I mean those taken with full frame Nikon DSLRs), noise was quite pleasant, and randomly distributed in a way that reminded me of that wonderful old photographic film grain; meanwhile, on the other side, my Canon files showed a rather ugly, clearly "digital" noise. So now, after many years of taking care to expose to the right, I am not hesitant of letting the histogram go more to the center (if needed) because the shadow recovery capability in raw Nikon files is, well, simply amazing.

In reply to:

ssh33: Yeah... No. Portraits with shallow depth of field look different. You know, eyes are in focus and the rest of the face is slightly blurred giving the skin smoother appearance and what some refer to as "3D look". This is not it. On the photos shown here the effect looks fake.

That said, I like candid portraits and see no value in a posed shot (no story) - studio people might appreciate it more than I do.

You took those words out of my mouth! :) Fake, that's the word...

In reply to:

VadymA: Is this Sigma marketing idea to boost their sales? In order to get DPM system one would need to purchase three lenses, three bodies, three sensors, three batteries, not to mention accessories like three fast memory cards, three grips, etc, etc. All for over $3,000. And in addition you would need something else for sports and low light photography (maybe there will be DPM4 and DPM5 for that). And with every new model you would have to start from scratch all over again. Interchangeable lens approach sounds much more economical from consumer stand point IMO.

Agreed! I doesn't make sense, IMHO, such a fixed focal length, it's too limiting...

In reply to:

Horshack: It's the same rope-a-dope strategy Facebook employs in all their ToS changes. It's designed to lull you into a false sense of security while they systematically keep pressing the ToS until they have the right to sell all your private information to the highest bidders.

I just cancelled my Instagram account...

On article Leaving my DSLR at home: An iPhone experiment (172 comments in total)
In reply to:

sean000: Nice article and great photos. However, I would add that there are many options in between an iPhone and a DSLR: High quality compacts that are not much larger than an iPhone (up to large sensor compacts), as well as interchangeable lens cameras like m4/3 and Sony NEX. You don't have to choose one extreme or the other. I get that you didn't want to make this honeymoon trip all about photography, but it looks like you still did. No you weren't hauling or fiddling with as much gear, but you still couldn't escape the fact that you are a photographer who obviously spent some time thinking about and capturing photos on this trip. In fact the apps can make the iPhone even more fiddly than a DSLR. I do take photos with my iPhone sometimes, but I can get the job done much faster with my DSLR or my Olympus OM-D (which fits in a much smaller bag and goes on all my family outings). Photographing the kids with an iPhone is just too frustrating ;-)


I have a Fuji X100 for such purpose. But, you know what? I'm barely using it since I have my iPhone...

Interesting camera. But the sensor is still too small for my taste. APS-C is the minimum for me.

On article Canon offers EOS 5D Mark III firmware v1.1.2 (26 comments in total)
In reply to:

Steve0902: Let's face it: despite the product improvements, it's hard to get excited about upgrading to this from the 5DMII, particularly in the face of the Nikon D800 with its 36MP, actually better low-light performance (per DxOMark), lower cost, and the widely-better-regarded Nikon lenses. While I don't know what I'd actually do with that many megapixels, I feel more like switching to Nikon than upgrading to the 5DMIII.

"widely-better regarded Nikon lenses"? I can't agree. Nikkor glass is good or even superb in many cases, but Canon glass is even better, and covering a wider range, IMHO...

None of us will buy one.

I don't need nor want such a thing. Video is rather secondary for me...

In reply to:

Denton Taylor: I can't believe no one's complaining about the price hike! The 5D I and II were $2500 bodies. This is 30% more! I won't be upgrading from my mkII, altho it would be nice to have decent focusing for a change.

I've complained... :)
