dpfan32: I’m a bit concerned when a photography centric website is calling AI image enhancement amazing.

There should exist a movement to stop all this nonsense!
And the photography business is one of the main target of the AI development.

Say no to AI!
Otherwise you are jobless in a few weeks/month/years (who knows judged by the rapid development of the things)

Sorry but this is not „progress“.
This replacement :)
When you are not seeing it you are blind.
The last 3 years showed perfectly me how many people are blind.

On article Nikon Z8 hands-on (316 comments in total)
In reply to:

eno2: I agree with the author, the Z8 although a nice camera, is not for me. It's to late and to expensive + it has no native third party affordable lens options.

Price adjusted for inflation… yes please…
Who’s salary is adjusting for inflation as well? Duh!
Cmon tech stuff is getting cheaper and cheaper…
The price increase is called greed in my humble opinion.
Canon prices are ridiculous as well..

Sigh… good old times. Nice articles…

Amazon knows best where the photography and camera business are going. It’s a dead end. People already posting fake AI „photos“ on Flickr…

On article A history of the test scene (192 comments in total)

The test scene was a masterpiece since 2010. I liked the older test scene a bit more than the new one I have to admit :)
Snow see myself in 2012 or so comparing the Olympus E-PL1 to a Sony RX100 ;)
Good old times...

astirusty: "Content Creator" could be good if they actually Created something of Content

The traditional craftsmanship in creating pictures and videos is vanishing into nothing.

Actually they everybody is "creating" simply nothing!
Only 0 and 1 in digital terms. Digital means nothing.

Keeping the folky busy in "creating" and the others in consuming the "created" digital garbage ;)

Pull the plug and you loose everything.

Quote 'Everybody can become a content creator'

In other words: professional photographer and videographer won't be for so long around working with non-business clients.

And the step after 'Everybody can become a content creator' soon there won't be any content creator anymore because of the AI.

That's my little prophecy IMHO

When I received the message from dpreview I first thought before I opened it:

What the heck? I've bee very nice and polite! Why I'm receiving a message?

No I wish they would have sent me a message that I'm banned from dpreview forever that this shutdown news ;)

Because this website is owned by the largest retailer in the world this shutdown probably means:
Photography as we know it will be dead soon.
The AI image developer of the future won't need a website for comparing gear.

On article Tech timeline: Milestones in sensor development (311 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii: "There's no inherent reason why CCD itself would capture color any differently from CMOS"

Disagreed. CMOS pictures look completely different, although I cannot say exactly why. Just compare side by side for yourselves. Put any good modern CMOS pictures side by side with what a cheap old CCD compact produces. You might be surprised how plasticy CMos looks

To be fair do it in good light.

35mm film fans love CCD sensors.
And in the old days noise and grain were not an issue like it is today.
Giving photographers a choice to use the sensor tech they feel good with would be nice.
Not all of them are into the modern thinking of clean smooth images at all cost.
By the way I’m a CMOS guy but I know some folks thinking differently :)

In reply to:

Muskokaphotog: These are sensors used in mainstream (apart maybe from the Z9) cameras. I'd be curious about developments in medium format and cellphones, which are likely the most commonly used "cameras" today. Further, how is this light capturing technology different from a flat bed scanner (optics aside)? Could there be a day when a sensor is the size of a tablet and the concept of "lens" becomes radically different? Think is compound eyes of some insects.

But it's the way it goes when someone dives too deep into the knowledge about a specific type of technology he gets blind for radically different ideas :)

On article Opinion: Bring on the 70-200mm equivalents (340 comments in total)
In reply to:

LeeAmes: I have a CANON 70-200 f/4 IS lens and by all measures I've seen, includingy photos and PRICE, is is the very best lens in the grouping. And CANON is offering some pretty nice incentives these days.

The EF 70-200 f4 L IS USM works very good on a 7D Mark II but there is competition from Canon itself: the EF-S 55-250mm STM lens

In reply to:

XCameraObscura: This type of lenses is weird on a mirrorless. It feels a bit like using a small two-seater sportscar for moving furniture. I own the X-Pro1 with a 55-200 lens and it's far from ideal. Beyond the fact it feels very unhandy and unbalanced, there is just no way it has the same competences as the magnificent AF-S 70-200mm F2.8 VRII on a FF Nikon. I tried to use the Fujinon for event shooting, it was hunting in low light all the time, couldn't get focus in quite a few cases - a complete disaster and it ruined many shots. DOF management / object separation capabilities are absolutely not in the same league. The Nikon is fluent, powerful performer and at its limits also much sharper than the Fujinon. A lot of people are still dreaming that their mirrorless solution can do better than Pro-DSLR-gear, well it isn't, but of course, I won't deny it can be in any given workflow a perfect lightweight complement for some particular purposes.

The process of mirrorless getting better than DSLR began 2018 with the various EOS R and Nikon Z and Sony A7 III sort of cameras.
Nowadays the rase is over and the mirrorless are ruling the market with eye tracking AF and faster burst frame rates.
But the feeling of a solid grippy DSLR and the mirror clicking is something special even today :)
Grabbing a D850, the best DSLR on sale might be a good idea....

On a photo in the Canon EOS R8 sample gallery sample gallery (1 comment in total)

Look at this image and compare to the images with the 85mm f1.8 STM ^^
Either is this 24-50mm lens very very soft or the 85mm f1.8 STM is exceptionally good...

In reply to:

I know what you mean: at 14:06 they describe the camera as the:

6D Mark II - 24 MP

and beneath the comments section there is a text with the description:

"The Canon 6D Mark II is a substantial improvement over its predecessor, and we spent a couple days in sunny San Diego to test it out!"

with a R6 Mark II in Chris' hands.

LOL

In reply to:

The problem is:

The Canon EOS 6D and EOS 6D Mark II user, who upgrade to a R camera and still can not justify the price of the R5, is used to have a top display and lack of it in a premium priced camera is a no-go; Let's be honest the R6 is with its high pricing no more an entry level mirrorless like the EOS 6D (Mark II) or the EOS RP.

The R6 should be according to the lineup of Canon a 6D successor but downgraded in therms of exactly this top display feature! 40 fps and such things, this is not an upgrade for the 6D but this is probably an interesting feature only for a possible EOS 7D Mark II successor IMHO.

Where is the 6D Mark II successor? Only the EOS R is with its current pricing an interesting successor.

Sony? .... No thank you... This is not a benchmark for a real camera like Canon.

I didn't want to say that but in my humble opinion only Canon and Nikon can build cameras. Sorry for that ^^
