On article Throwback Thursday: Our first cameras (384 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dennis: This is very much like back in November when DPReview asked about the first camera and GaryJP so totally nailed it with his comment:

"...Like many photographers this whole thread reminds me how much I miss my dad.. Without him I would not be here..."

https://www.dpreview.com/news/4502453425/dpreview-asks-what-was-your-first-camera?comment=4146236786

Along those lines; I used my dad's Miranda Fv (much like the Sensorex) quite a bit, used a friends Minolta X-300 and ended up on a Nikon path for years until going digital...

That reminds of a story when a Son pulls out an old Xbox with a racing game that his Dad use to play. It still has the ghost car of his Dad setting the track record and the Son races it, but always lets it wins. Heart warming.

Why do I have wifi in my small phone, in my small AW100 Nikon waterproof camera but need a brick for my DSLR ....why Nikon? Sony have it built in their A6xxx & A7x cameras.

The 'V' & 'J' series should have died years ago, yet the let the DL die before it's born. So sad. The '1' series was 1 big failure.

Bahahahaha! Number one in ILC market?! I think I would rate Canon higher than Nikon attempts at least, but no FF ILC camera yet...

I once asked Leica have much does it cost to buy a cut in half lens and you know what they said? Half the price of the lens... ;)

Photoman: At least Nikon ain't as stagnant as Canon...or are they? Fuji and Sony are the leaders of the future and that scares Nikon and Canon. Remember Kodak, Polaroid, Agfa. Once big but now very, very small.

I remember Nikon Corp was going to shut down Nikon Photographic if the D3/D700/D300 failed. That was there last roll of the dice and it could happen again.

In reply to:

panchorancho: Why bother making these in E mount? I'd rather have them in Leica M mount that way you can adapt them to different cameras. Buying MF glass solely for a Sony body seems like a waste of money.

You get EXIF data, auto magnification and hopefully optimization for Sony sensor is worth having a E-Mount. Unless you have a Leica M body and Sony E body to use it on, maybe yes, but if you don't have a M body, stop whinging.

On article Striding Forth: Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Review (2125 comments in total)
In reply to:

Photoman: I love that there is many cons as there is pros. It shows Canon and the Exec's did their homework well 😏

All the cons don't really matter, by autofocus does. Yes it takes time to refine AF, but 4 attempts and still not good? Look at the Nikon D750 review and there is no issue with AF. Nikon have got it right, but Canon seems to lack the commitment to get AF right in the 5D series. Remember the Canon CEO said at a tradeshoow that there is nothing wrong with the original 5D autofocus, so no need to improve the 5DMKII autofocus.

I'll wait for some sucker to buy it new and sell it on eBay, then it will be a 1/4 of the price of the new Canon 85mm 😉

aramgrg: So far, Canon has more M bodies than M lenses.

At least Leica have more M lenses than M bodies...

In reply to:

justmeMN: The handling of Nikon DL is the kind of amateurish nonsense that you would expect from a Kickstarter company.

I love Nikon cameras, but the 1 series is just 1 big mistake. I tried to like the V1 & V2, but they are just terrible cameras. One day they will be recognised as Nikon worst camera, then collectors will pay big money for them!

Link | Posted on Feb 16, 2017 at 04:48 UTC

I had a friend beta test these camera last year with a couple of Nikon techs and they had real potential. A real shame.
