AngularJS: They would better fix gazillions of existing bugs and optimize the code instead of doing this BS.

Yep, because this is the only thing the entire Adobe corporation is working on. I heard they even pulled in the phone operator to submit some code to fix the modulation issues they were having with this.

PLEASE ADOBE, WORK ON ANYTHING ELSE!

Ummm....hey guys....this isn't a camera, you don't have to be so critical.

TwoMetreBill: Pollute the environment, use film.

Get real guys, none of you (including me) have any realistic idea of what impact film or digital has on the environment. Shoot what you want.

cloneimaging: I recently started shooting medium format this year. I tell ya my photography and knowledge developed more in 10 months than the previous 8 years of just shooting digital.

Well sure, because digital is easier. If you want to do anything the manual way, you're going to learn more by default.

On article Nikon brings its D5600 DSLR to the US (92 comments in total)
In reply to:

noflashplease: I really can't see what this brings to the market, other than much maligned "Snapbridge" connectivity feature, which is more of an embarrassment than a selling point. These days, Pentax is ahead of Nikon in terms of liveview autofocus with the on-sensor phase detection of the K-70.

Sad to say, but I wouldn't recommend either the D3400 or D5600. As far as I'm concerned, the D7200 is Nikon's entry level model. Anything below that isn't worth buying.

Sad to say, but the D3400 and D5600 are probably better cameras than what you were using 5-6 years ago and they're considered entry level now. They're fine cameras and do what they do well. Just because you demand better doesn't mean these two models are crap.

theSUBVERSIVE: Wow, lots of hating, I didn't expect that.

It's positive comments about a camera phone on a website visited by people who pay thousands of dollars to take pretty pictures. I would readjust your expectations, sir. :P

EdwardWestonNYC: Re: Reference view" Capture One has had this ability forever. Don't get me wrong. Its great that Adobe added it, but its not anything new other than a fancy term added to it "Reference View". I maintain 15 years in this industry - that Capture One is a far better RAW processor for the power user BUT lightroom is the far Superior collection/overall manager. Wish someone would combine the best of both and then take $$$$$ from me for doing so.

I'm sure CaptureOne added something at some point that was already in Lightroom, so what's your point?

tom1234567: Just got rid of Adobe LR AND PP today
I now use on1Photo Raw instead of LR,
and the new Affinity for windows released today in place of PP.

so Adobe no more monies from me,
the LR done nothing for the Fuji jpeg problems
I have the Fuji X-T2 and the D7200 and the new programs handle the files with no problems
I think a few more users will be leaving Adobe soon

These numbers are useless without knowing how total picture uploads faired. Sure, DSLR photo share went down year-to-year but if total photo uploads went up tremendously, with the vast majority of them being smartphones, then you could be looking more at flat growth on this website.

If in 2015 they had 100 photos uploaded and 30 of them were from DSLR, then DSLR had a 30% share. If in 2016 they had 200 photos uploaded and 40 of them were from DSLR, then DSLR had a 20% share. You can either report that as a 33% increase in DSLR uploads year-over-year or a 10% loss in upload share year-over-year. Depends on what message you're trying to convey to your audience.

AbrasiveReducer: Ouch. That's where a lot of the profit is. It's like lenshoods.

Even with these reduced prices, they're still making a killing.

ColdViking: Now wait for the Apple fan-bois to come along and explain why touch screens for computers is useless.

@MeganV - @raymondg said he was happy to keep his monitor and tablet separate, meaning he was using an Intous (or similar), not the Cintiq. Which means he was comparing his Intous material to glass, which is an odd thing to do.

@raymondg - Your Wacom tablet isn't made of glass, so that's a poor comparison.

noflashplease: I wonder if we'll ever see a standalone, boxed version of Lightroom 7?

@OBI656....."hands-down champ"? Please. CaptureOne fanboys are getting more annoying than Adobe fanboys. They're both capable products, don't say stupid stuff.

EssexAsh: saw an excellent quote,

"The beauty of the headphone cable is just like the beauty of a tampon string: it is there to help you keep track of a very important item, and help you fish it out of whatever nook and cranny it might have fallen into. Apple's apparent blindness to this blindingly obvious problem is perplexing."

EssexAsh, that's incorrect. These wireless earphones appear to excel at absorbing money from your wallet.

Gray Photography: Pixel peeping taken to the extreme. A solution looking for a problem?

I fear DP Review has lost themselves in the world of examining belly button lint with a microscope.

None of this has anything to do with photography.

Honestly, they're writing directly to their audience. It's not necessarily DPReview's fault that this is the kind of stuff their readers want to see. People argue about this stuff non-stop in the forums, making an article about it is easy clicks.

Nobody has yet taken a stab at figuring up retail value of everything pictured?

They continue to use Kickstarter as a cheap pre-order tool and marketing device, all the while getting big sites like this one to dedicate an article to it. I don't know why that annoys me, but it does. Oh well. At least Kickstarter makes it easy to take your money back if you change your mind.

Boissez: Looks like a sweet camera with almost everything one could wish for . Alas, there's no IBIS. Dealbreaker.

I don't have a need for a $1600 mirrorless camera but love reading comments on non-Canikon camera announcements/reviews...dealbreaker.

On article Special K? Pentax K-1 Review (2663 comments in total)
In reply to:

caver3d: Is this some kind of a joke? Silver Award? I believe the K-3 got a Gold. What's up with DPR, anyway? This is one superb camera. And for the bevy of great features versus price, how can you beat it? (And, yes, I also own the Sony A7RII along with the K-1, etc., so I have some idea of what a state-of-the-art camera can do.) All cameras have pros and cons, but the K-1 really shines. But, don't worry Canikonphiles, you'll be sure to get your Gold awards. Just amazing.

caver3d, if you already have the camera, then what are you going on about? Need that coveted "gold" award to justify your purchase?
