The Davinator: Hmmm...D5 looks sharper, and has better high iso noise.

Sony sharpens Canon RAWs.

In reply to:

wai chin: Nikon is paying for it's mistakes.
Such as Nikon One , Mission 360.
Contax was killed by their entry into the Digital SLR business, time was way off.
I run a Photo Mini-Lab (remember them)
Everybody just shot their photos and videos on their phones
A customer just ask me, So What's New
I reply- Not much
Phones are sucking out the air from the Photo Industry
Just compare the size of the Photo Expos / Trade Shows of now to the likes of of it 15 - 20 years ago.
Now thats one sad story
Oh Nikon is part of that story

Sad but true. Some people lament the demise of film. Soon me may be doing the same for dedicated cameras. I fear for the future of Nikon.

The next Sony A9 article should compare how easily it can get you a date vs 1D II.

technotic: I was wondering where the latest Sony article was. Can you guys speed up please? You are churning them out nearly as fast as Sony releases cameras. But not quite.

You'll never do that B. Just concentrate on the Sony article.

In reply to:

technotic: How many more A9 articles can we expect? We need full breakdowns on how much it would cost to switch from every other brand.

Evidently. Does every post need to state that? In your opinion we need article after article on Sony. Fair play to you. It's your site after all.

dwill23: It couldn't be more clear whose bed this writer is in.

Why not mention how hard it would be to "SEE" $11,000 difference in images? I don't think the writers are sports photographers. I've shot 1000s of NCAA sports games, flew all over the country with my university fball team and it's not SPRAY AND PRAY, it's timing.

I could out-shoot ANYONE with any camera with a rebel on my 300 f2.8 L II by timing the ball 1ft out of the glove of a baseball player while the runner was sliding into the base. I can time a header in soccer. I took notes on what end, and how the gymnastics girls would land their stunts to be in the right spot at the right time. It's and ART. Not 20FPS.

ANYTIME I just held the trigger down I rarely got the shot I wanted.

You have to shoot your butt off to know what to look for and then bang, fire that shot. After a while you can nail that shot over and over and over. Practice with balls flying over home plate. Watch the batter, not the ball.

Actually I could out shoot dwill with a Pentax Q and a pinhole lens.

Tan68: I have read speculation that manufacturers pay DPR for reviews and etc. [usually written by unhappy people complaining about things like lens caps]

Setting aside whether or not paying For articles is true, I wonder if Nikon might earmark a few dollars for DPR to Not publish anymore anniversary related articles...

I don't think DPR's coverage is improper or inflammatory but some of the reader comments are perplexing.. some obvious... some just not very nice.

Articles like this are a setup for a lot of fun poking. Pretty much like every Leica article.

On article Fujifilm X-T20 Review (359 comments in total)
In reply to:

MarkInDallas: To everyone who has purchased an x-t20, or potentially reviewing one, please turn down the high ISO noise reduction to -2. It results in MUCH more pleasant results at any ISO over 1600.

MUCH sharper and the trade off of a tiny bit more noise is well worth it. I am not sure why fuji chose for it to be so aggressive at the base setting, but I would imagine it will be addressed in a future firmware update.

Other than that, as an owner of an X-T20 upgrading from an X-E1, I could not be more happy. It produces absolutely terrific results, especially with the 56/1.2.

The X-T10 has a much better viewfinder than the X-E1.

In reply to:

Jonathan Mac: Some of the images are very nice but I suspect most would be nicer with a different lens. This is massively over-priced for what it is and it's hard to imagine why people would pay the kickstarter price, never mind the full price. There are loads of old 35mm lenses on e-bay and gathering dust in second-hand shops and even if they need a full service they would still work out much cheaper and produce results likely better than this.

I also don't understand them being manufactured in native mirrorless mounts. As a Pentax and Fuji X user (if I had more money than sense) I'd buy it in K mount and use an adapter for my Fuji. It will still take up the same space and I can use it in two mounts. Even if I used only Fuji or m4/3 I'd still buy it in one of the other mounts and use an adapter so that I could use it in the future if I change or decide to get an SLR.

Let me get this right. If you had only Fuji gear you'd buy it in an slr mount just in case you decide to sell all your fuji gear and buy that specific slr mount system?

Ad B: Everybody has to stop being a policeman, I wouldn't like to be on every picture of every "photographer".
Than look who's complaining again...
They are just doing their job, the most of them (as in the rest of working world) are doing their best.
I wouldn't like to come on everyone's pictures, just doing my job.
F..... world.
Is everybody going to make pics of police, fire brigade and ambulance work, hoping to be arrested and get a lot of money, doing nearly nothing??
F..... world.

Can you write that again but in English?

photogeek: Get in on it while you still can. DJI will definitely kill off all these MF shenanigans and just keep the brand and patent portfolio.

Sales of the Lunar rescued Hasselblad. DJI wanted access to the crazy high tech of the Lunar. Expect jewel encrusted drones for $10,000 soon.
