On article Ten things we're hoping for from the Nikon D850 (325 comments in total)
In reply to:

photog4u: By releasing this impressive marketing short announcing the D850 development, Nikon has committed yet another camera tech faux pas. They should have given their mirrorless development a similar marketing video. That the D850 got Hercules Rising and the mirrorless announcement got a half-ass press release, tells me that they still don't get it ... probably an early indication that the Nikon mirrorless system is going to be disappointing compared to the might Sony Alpha series.

@photog4u - You're everything that's wrong with the online photography community. Your passion lies in guessing, comparison, and brand loyalty, not taking photographs. You should reassess why you're even on a photography site.

@sapple - Nikon released an official statement that they were working on a mirrorless system: https://www.dpreview.com/news/9148147105/official-statement-nikon-currently-developing-new-mirrorless-cameras

Thoff: I went to the local welding supply and they had a setup to highlight the eclipse and sold 3x5 sheets of glass for welding helmets that are safe to view the eclipse through.
They were a 1.85 each and I got a few. When I got home I looked at the full sun through them and had not issues. Even played with it on my camera and took pics of the sun with no issues.

Nah, I think I'll pay the $150 instead.

Sylvain G: I appreciate Adobe wanting to address this issue but I'd suggest they'd widen their reality check : the rendering simply lags behind competition like phase. Camera makers color profiles are completely off too. It just looks old...
I'll welcome any performance improvement but if lightroom 7 main and only focus is perfs, then I suppose that will be it for me.

I really didn't ask for or need a summary. It's extremely simple. If you don't like LR, then move along. You're trying to use excuses like "locked in by the large catalog" or saying "if it's not fixed in the future", but if you're not happy, then go with another product now. Guess what, if they don't do what you want in the future, your catalog is still going to be large. If you're going to move away from LR at a future point, then you might as well start now.

If LR isn't working for you now, then why don't you change now? Sounds like you're complaining because you like to complain. There's nobody stopping you but yourself.

Svetoslav Popov: Way too late. I already switched to Capture One Pro v10.

And typical Adobe: instead of talking about the stinky pile in the room (the forced subscription model) their modus operandi is to distract with lesser issues (though not much less stinky, granted).

Only need a Photoshop CS6 replacement, then i'm completely out, good riddance, bye bye stinky pie... (SCNR)

I swear the #1 reason people buy Capture One is so that they can tell everyone on the internet that they use it.

jyw5: I don't understand why ppl got bent out of shape over yhis article. I'm not a pro and I found the info interesting. While most readers here won't be able to use the setup described, it was still interesting and much can be learned and it sparks creativity and makes you think about the possibilities....perhaps even new possibilities.

I didn't know DPR photographers were so whiney.

You must be new here, then. Welcome!

bwana4swahili: Really hard to beat "laptops" like the Lenovo YOGA 900 and 910! Miles ahead of the Surface.

I could not disagree more, especially with the "miles" part. The newest Surface Pros definitely don't win in all categories but they're highly portable, extremely usable and performance is fantastic for anything but gaming (which they aren't made for anyway).

On article Nikon reshuffles management structure (248 comments in total)

In this comment section: nothing but former CEOs who have all ran multi-billion dollar businesses. I'm not really sure why Nikon doesn't just come here and read up for a few minutes, then they'd have all the sure-fire business strategy they'd need.

On article Dell announces 4K HDR10 monitor (88 comments in total)
In reply to:

Androole: Ooof! $2000.

I was excited to see a Dell HDR monitor, since I've been quite happy with my calibrated 24" Dell IPS, and it was very well priced.

I guess it stands to reason that HDR is bleeding edge tech and will be costly for a few more years. But that's a 2x price premium over their regular 27" 4K Ultrasharp...

Sadly, it's not bleeding edge tech, at least for the living room. Since this is relatively new in the PC space, Dell will be happy to charge a premium to milk early adopters, then lower the price to a more reasonable level in a year's time.

aramgrg: Cool idea, if you disregard the fact that the Iphone on top of that rig has better footage on its own.

I'm really not sure why you guys are arguing about iPhone camera vs. Mavic camera. I own both and they're both as subpar as you'd expect for such a small sensor. They both suffice given the package they come in though.

Old Cameras: Time to book travel to Nebraska.

Why Nebraska? The eclipse will be at its peak in southwest Kentucky.

I bought the Pro+ upgrade back in January and feel it was a waste of money. The automatic ambient light switching just isn't that impressive to me and I'm not confident it works that well. I ended up turning it off.

I do not recommend, there's better things to do with your $30.

Ad B: Everybody has to stop being a policeman, I wouldn't like to be on every picture of every "photographer".
Than look who's complaining again...
They are just doing their job, the most of them (as in the rest of working world) are doing their best.
I wouldn't like to come on everyone's pictures, just doing my job.
F..... world.
Is everybody going to make pics of police, fire brigade and ambulance work, hoping to be arrested and get a lot of money, doing nearly nothing??
F..... world.

Grammar police here, we need to talk about your post. There's a lot wr.....HEY! WHY ARE YOU FILMING ME??

embie: Old wine in new barrels.
Is this all that Nikon can do for their 100th anniversary, a special camera cap and a fancy strap on two existing camera's and packed in a clumsy suitcase ?

It's February. FEBRUARY. There are 10 months left in their 100th anniversary year. These were put up for display for marketing purposes, they haven't even said if they're going to try to sell these or not.

In reply to:

shooter45: If you own both cameras, what is the point to buy this special edition then ? Seriously Nikon ... better cap, case and strap ? Are you really serious Nikon ? Because I won't buy again the D500 even though I am so happy with it .. and not because I do not have the money to buy it but because my camera is already the same that you are offering to celebrate your 100th anniversary.
Matter of fact, I do not care about your strap because I own a better one; I do not think that a camera cap is something that we use everyday and regarding the case, I also have a case that I can carry with me even if I travel in an airplane and it does hold all of my equipment.

Who said they were even trying to sell this? It was a display at a photo convention. Do you also assume the glass cases they had were going to be for sale at some point, too?

Everybody has gotten their panties in such a bunch over a couple of custom cameras made for marketing purposes.

XeroJay: In sorry, but as a professional, am I the only one that thinks this is stupid? I keep hearing about Nikon being in financial trouble, and this is what they're wasting their time with?

It's called marketing. Every company "wastes" money on marketing.

digilt: " The minimum focus distance of the 24-70 is 37cm/1.5in and it uses 82mm filters."

37cm is closer to 14.6in. , not 1.5in.

Also your word!! Where are our going?!?

brycesteiner: Another rumor published by DPReview?

iPhone rumors get clicks, it's that simple. If 10 people click their rumor articles and you click them 0, there going to write for those 10 people and not you.

blurredvision: Just bought the new NIkon 70-200 for $2800 and I come home to find my CC package went up $5/month. This is ridiculous! Now I have to take my lens back because Adobe has bankrupted me. Unacceptable.

LOL...comparing a few bucks for a software subscription to my mortgage? Please. I pay $10/month for LR and PS. If my subscription went up a whopping 15% and I had to pay $11.50? Pfft, whatever.
