  • That's not true. Phil Askey's own extensive review timed at at 4.2 s. Wow, I guess he got a lemon. That's not true either. DPR's review AND Canon's own site mention under 2fps Capable, yet highly ...
  • Great, thanks for clearing that up!
  • I understand this is a fine camera, but it's performance like that in the 2nd to last image that gives me pause. It looks smeary--even worse than I've seen with the coolpix P900.
  • Replied in arrrg
    There is no evidence they were taking photographs at that very location, that those photographs, if any exist, were selfies, or that any selfies, if they exist, were the cause of the fall. Did you ...
  • Replied in arrrg
    WHERE IS THE PROOF THAT THEY WERE TAKING A SELFIE, AND FURTHER, THAT THE SELFIE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR FALL? GARBAGE. As the Washington Post notes, "Rui Pereira da Terra, a captain with the ...
  • Replied in No, but DOS
    Microsoft should take a cue from Kodak and restart production of it. After all, DOS has a look one just can't match with Win 10!
  • It must have been good for its time, but iPhone shots look better than it does. For example, lots of fringing in this one: ...
  • Replied in No, but DOS
    Good efforts, guys, but you aren't going back far enough. Win 3.1 is analogous to the early days of digital. The antediluvian DOS, on the other hand--now using that is more akin to shooting with film.
  • How amusing this film photography counterculture is, a modern day 1960's turn on, tune in, and drop out.

    I suppose that as digital moves upmarket, you folks "rebel" against the "establishment" by...

  • Replied in double arrrg
    The dark web holds many secrets. They could well have been framed by an anti-selfie-taking assailant looking to make a statement. Perhaps the OP knows something about this, since he started this ...
  • Good point that we see a bit of tilt in person! I had forgotten that, but then remembered train tracks.
  • A kind gesture, but isn't that a bit like giving someone a  pedal-powered Flinstones car (antiquated camera) rather than, say, a Segway (svelte smartphone)?
  • I've found most peculiar the film photography counterculture--one whose values and norms of behavior differ substantially from those of mainstream photography--a modern day 1960's turn on, tune ...
  • Replied in arrrg
    They most certainly were taking a selfie After all, falling from cliffs doesn't happen to those merely holding a cellphone and not using it for a selfie, does it?
  • Surely they care because Sony makes the best sensors in the business? Others view it as unseemly to see Sony sticking something into Nikon--much like Jefferson did with Hemings.
  • The Nikon FX forum's having a real identity crisis. Open secret or not, they were in denial all this time, hoping against hope that the company that has 1-upped them in almost every respect hadn't ...
  • I live in a metro area, where packing heat is the only sensible thing to carry when out and about in the vicinity. So, I usualy only take the camera on longer trips--backpacking in the countryside. ...
  • Then you'd be $100 poorer, but a lot wiser! Here's what today's phones can do: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/61267743
  • Replied in Let's see one
    Well, that's what I've been talking about all along! The color balance of the phone photo also looks better out of camera than the D7100's.
  • I like what you did with the sky. :)
