elsen029: Very creative work, great engineering and nice results. I just remain with one question after seeing the video's: why?

...that's a bit too easy for me digital.

In reply to:

goactive: Some of the worst photos for quality I have seen in a long time. Very noisy, very poor color and just a look bad.

Complete nonsense. Fabulous quality for a 1" sensor.

Still waiting for the technical test of this one, DPR!

Very nice series, atmosphere nicely captured. Its only a pity that DPR visitors are not allowed to appreciate the full resolution of not even one single picture... Too bad DPR!

..at f/2.8 focussing becomes critical; the veil behind the bride is sharp, the bride is not..

...they might even believe the explanation they are giving themselves, seen the fact that they are slicing up a perfectly OK, $ 300 lens...

On article Analog gems: 10 excellent, affordable film cameras (819 comments in total)

Olympus should be definitely added, especially the OM4, a very small rugged camera ahead of its time with multi-spot metering, highlight and shadow spotmeter setting, etc. A real gem!

Where are the surfing pictures the title promises? Oh, it's the TRIP that is documented, not the surfing, right?

Very mediocre article, DPR.

In reply to:

Patrick Kristiansen: A feel a few these a rather good, but most have the same look to me, a very specific "I shot this using a drone"- look , which is novel still, but I predict this look will grow old quite quickly...

Who cares whether we will get used to drone pictures (or not)? So what? They are still nice pictures.

Suits them well!

but... ' Both were sentenced to 7 days in jail, fined $2,000 and ordered to perform community service for Yellowstone Forever.'

Forever? Life long community service?

dr.noise: Why not shoot during daylight

FantasticMrFox: Not the first time it's been done - some Nikon photographer (forgot the name) did the same for promotional pictures taken of big wall climbers with the D500:

So, it's only worth while when it's done the first time?

They're probably produced in China for a few bucks, but when they're attached to a Leica, the price tag has to be equivalent!

I would like to know how much of these 'Mark II's' are actually sold.

Now I understand why Kodak didn't make it in the digital market: worst design ever.

On article Behind the Camera: A conversation with Peter Hurley (64 comments in total)
In reply to:

Oli4D: Well I appreciate these interviews a lot. Really.

BUT why can't dpreview not at least try to keep in mind the most simple things in terms of cinematography?
I know it's a gear-head / tech site. But this does not mean the most fundamental principles of cinematography have to be ignored :/

When shooting an interview and cutting back and forth between a wide shot and a close up shot, PLEASE place the two cameras in a way that makes sense.
In this case: If Mr. Hurley sits on the left side of the frame in the wide shot and looks to the left while talking, the close up camera should also have his head framed more to the right, him looking to the left as well.
Very simple and would be much more comfortable to watch.

I really like the interview but the camera technique is really bad indeed.
I agree with all commments in this thread. On top of that, Mr. Hurley is out of focus when he leans forward. His chair is sharp though...

One more tip: switch on the microphone on the interviewer as well, and check all settings (white balance) BEFORE starting to shoot...

Come on DPR guys, You can do better than that, you're not a bunch of amateurs!
