I gave it a try. Nice piece of software, albeit far from perfect.
AFAIK resolution of pictures is limited to 1920x1080 and - as pointed before - the models' edges are overly sharp against the background; I see intrusive horizontal lines in the final image too.
But I think one can get lots of fun from the app, surely worth the $ 10 they ask.

Terrific image.
Kudos to the winner!

In reply to:

Anfy: "Sigma's MC-11 adapter can be used to convert Canon, Nikon and Sigma-mount lenses to work on Sony's full-frame mirrorless cameras."

Nikon mount lenses?

But AFAIK there is no Sigma brand Nikon mount MC-11 adapter. Or am I missing something?

On article DPReview Asks: What was your first camera? (765 comments in total)

I do not remember exactly the model, but probably a Kodak Brownie Starmatic with flash bulb from he early '60s; the camera was already fairly old when I, at age six or seven, began to make use of it.

On article Fujifilm announces XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR lens (295 comments in total)
In reply to:

nerd2: $1200 for aps 2.8 zoom w/o stabilization makes no sense. It should be at least f2.0 to be competitive against FF zooms.

True, but the Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8, also OISless, is $1,396.95 (source: DPReview), and is a great lens.

On article Sony a5100 First Impressions Review (591 comments in total)

Remember the old NEX-F3? Had built-in flash, and accessory port for the FDA-EV1S viewfinder. Why the newer cameras had either one or the other, but not both, goes beyond me.
Of course there is always the A6000, but:
- a slimmest body (due to a detachable viewfinder) sometimes is useful;
- why should I send my EVF to collect dust?

On article Eye-Fi Mobi Wi-Fi SD card review (107 comments in total)
In reply to:

Just a Photographer: Why should we still use Eye-Fi cards now in most places we can use a 4G network?

Next to that in todays world not only your phone has wifi already, but most (consumer) camera's have wifi too.

Few years ago these cards came in handy, but nowadays aren't these eye-fi card mostly redundant? Its only a matter of time before Eye-fi will be out of business.

Correct if I am wrong: the built Wi-Fi of most cameras for file transfer just works in connection to mobile devices like phones or tablets, not PC or Mac computers.

Yes, it is better than the D610 at ISO 3200 and especially 6400, but not so much to justify the difference in price and lack of video and dual SD slot.

Great, great to see you live after all these years (and to understand perfectly those british accents, on a lesser degree other inflections :-) ), but - as others have pointed out - who's who?

Ciao!

On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 Review (611 comments in total)
In reply to:

Anfy: It would be interesting to compare GX7 IBIS to that of the newer Olympus cameras, i. e. the 5-axis system; once DPR made this kind of tests.
Maybe a future addition to the review?

Yes, I already read the Tyson Robichaud article, and found the results surprising (I thought GX7 IBIS could be equal to E-M5, but not better, let alone vastly better). Kudos for Panasonic if this is true, but the E-M5 should fare a little better IMHO.
That was the main reason I was hoping in another test, this time by DPReview.

On article Retro Nikon 'DF' emerges from the shadows (1391 comments in total)
In reply to:

vFunct: Mirrorless cameras are junk. They're like cell-phone cameras, with their visual preview lag, but they're not as useful as cell phones because they aren't pocketable.

There are only two useful camera classes: dSLRs and cell phones. Everything else is a useless compromise that isn't as good as either.

There are absolutely NO professionals that use mirror less cameras at a press event. Every press photographer uses either a Nikon or Canon, while the writers use iPhones.

Mirrorless cameras aren't as good as an dSLR or a cell phone, and therefore nobody uses them.

They are junk toys.

Troll alert!

In reply to:

TFD: I guess when you lack any new ideas you dig up the old ones, I guess to be complete it should have lenses with aperture rings and manual focus only. of course given Nikon's poor user interface perhaps a shutter speed dial IS a step forward...

This is just another blatant marketing attempt, like Fuji's retro looking, non-rangefinder rangefinder cameras to eke out sales in a stagnant market, Especially as the mirorless cameras are not flying off the shelves.

"Retro Nikon 'DF' emerges from the shadows": c'mon DPReview, I guess you have been playing with a pre-production sample for weeks now... ;-)

Seriously, I am hoping in a hefty Hands-on Preview (ore, better, a First Impressions Review) by November the 5th!

Ciao!

On article Canon EOS 70D Review (681 comments in total)

I know it has been asked before, but could you (DPReview) make four cameras - and not just two - to appear on the (new) Studio Comparison page?
It is a bit annoying to read the differences between the 70D and the D7100, then the E-M1 (so we have to manually switch to that camera), then again the D7100 (another switch) and so on, why are them all not displayed at the same time like in the old tool?

Ciao!

They managed to put a flash on the EVF "hump": why it was not possible on the E-M5/E-M1 really I do not know.
