About me:

Photography is mostly a hobby, but also something I do for my job as a Realtor. I leverage my interest in photography in my business by taking photos of my listings. I've learned a lot of new techniques this way, including HDR, use of luminosity masks, and studio lighting. I love learning new techniques and incorporating them into my work and art.

On article Nikon D850 sensor confirmed as Sony-made (578 comments in total)
In reply to:

AZBlue: Duh. Companies contract with other companies all the time for component fabrication. Must be a slow news day.

@BlueBomberTurbo

You are citing the similarity between two Sony 42 MP cameras as proof that Nikon is using an off-the-shelf 46 MP Sony sensor? Your logic fails me, sir.

Come back with proof. Nikon said it's their design and you don't seem to be able to provide any facts to disprove other than asking a bunch of leading questions. Go out and take some photos.

Who cares? Apple designs every aspect of the iPhone, yet it contains components from Samsung, Qualcomm, Intel and others, and manufacturing is outsourced to Foxconn. Does that mean the iPhone is not an Apple design? Not at all.

On article Sony 'striping': here's the fix (791 comments in total)
In reply to:

AZBlue: For all the posting Sony fanboys have done in the Nikon forum, this is truly hilarious. Payback is a beyotch! So SO glad I have a Nikon D850. It actually works and takes excellent images that I don't need to fix in post.

Oh, and did you see the "fix" for this striping issue isn't even from Sony - it's from some third party, which is basically a patch job. And the resulting image comes out slightly softer than the original. So much for your Sony's resolution... I'm laughing so hard right now...

@ ProfHankD: The D750 flare issue you mention was addressed through a recall by Nikon. It is no longer an issue and has been solved by Nikon. Anyone with this issue can have their shutter replaced by Nikon free of charge. I don't see how this is comparable to the Sony issue, has Sony solved the problem like Nikon solved its problem? Has Sony made things right for past owners who have had to deal with this issue?

ProfHankD: Looking at the sample provided in the article, it does make the image slightly softer. And why would you be comparing this third party "fix" to Nikon's image dust off? I've never once needed to use image dust off, and never once has any of my Nikons displayed this type of image problem.

surlezi: I love lots of subjects, including cats. At least I have some images in my gallery, what do you have? Let's see... NOTHING! You know what they say about glass houses...

Eloise: Be interesting if dpreview could put these up against the Huion alternatives - 21.5" costs around $500 / £500 rather than $2k

Just realised these new Cintiq are 4k aren't they...

For starters, the brand you mention covers only 72% of NTSC spectrum (i.e., very poor color reproduction) and can only reproduce 8-bit color (16.7 million colors). This is way behind the times, and way behind the Wacom.

On article Nikon D610 Review (403 comments in total)

SHAME ON DPREVIEW!

Where were you when everyone was posting about D600 spots? Where were you to test the D600 for this problem? DPREVIEW, you have done nothing to help members here figure out this issue. Perhaps you don't wish to rock the boat with Nikon sending you free cameras to test?

You have severely hurt your reputation here, and I very infrequently visit because I do not trust your reviews. A problem that was so widespread and admitted by Nikon to be a defect was never mentioned by you in your review. You are nothing more than a mouthpiece for the manufacturers, regurgitating their press releases. Your tests are a joke because they don't reveal problems that others experience in real world shooting.

What is the point of reviewing products if you aren't at all critical of them?

If this is the quality of photos produced by these photographers, they deserve to get fired.

Reporters who tolerate this are desperate. If I were a reporter and was told that now I have to capture video and photos in the field, I would flip them the bird and walk out. All of their reporters should do the same. But I guess they lack the brass to actually make a stand.

Asus doesn't get the tablet market. It's not about specs, it's about the experience. Asus and companies like them are applying outmoded PC thinking to tablets. Best of luck to them.

On article Samsung introduces more Galaxy Tab 3 tablets (8 comments in total)

Huh, I love how Samsung keeps releasing products that nobody wants.

While it sucks for those who have been laid off, I don't understand why this is a bad thing. News consumers want immediacy, they don't want art or composition or high level of detail. Leave the art and composition to National Geographic. For news, immediacy is king and in that vein, so are smart phone photos and videos.

Technology moves on and sometimes it renders certain jobs less secure. I'm sure that moving to freelancers has cut costs tremendously for Sun Times. Why would you keep 28 people on staff, paying salaries and benefits, when you can dramatically cut costs by only paying for the photos and videos that you really need?

On article Photoshop CC: Adobe responds to reaction (1842 comments in total)

What a fluff piece, DPR? You ask a question, get a non-answer, and don't press the guy for an answer? When you ask how do they justify the price increase, they say they cut the price in half. Obviously you have different information than they do - why didn't you explore that further? Why do you just ask a question and accept a less than satisfying answer?

This is a completely ridiculous article that doesn't put anyone's mind at east. Photographers prefer Lightroom to CC? FAQs ask why do you need Photoshop? Are you kidding me? So DPR's solution is to give Adobe PR another avenue to spout off while the FAQs push people towards Lightroom and talks them out of wanting Photoshop. Sounds like an agenda to me.
