About me:

I have gone back to more fundamental photography now that I have sold my DSLR and Mirrorless cameras. I'm enjoying the simplicity and delights of an old Fujifilm X100.

On article Pentax KP Review (646 comments in total)

I loved my Pentax K3 when I had one and was impressed by their lenses too.If Pentax could nail their AF with non-PLF lenses they would be class leaders.
Great build, handling, nice big OVF and lots of legacy gear.

Sonyshine: Well done Fuji for keeping the generations of X100's going. A great camera at launch and better with every upgrade.

I am still lovin' my original X100 though. One day I may be tempted to change but while my X100 still delights me my wallet is staying closed.

....most unlike me in reality! :)

On article Nikon D5600 review: making connectivity a snap? (346 comments in total)

"We had more than our fair share of troubles with SnapBridge but many of these seemed to be resolved by resetting the camera and apps, suggesting users who are only connecting a single device, once, will have a more positive experience. "

Not good enough Nikon.

Must do better.

Nikon either have a very warped sense of humour or maybe their marketing department is just warped.....

On article Hands-on with the Canon EOS Rebel T7i / EOS 800D (70 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sonyshine: I feel most camera makers are guilty of muddled naming and product hierarchy but Canon are by far the worst.

I look at a Canon camera (any type) and do not have a clue where it sits in the range. Base model? Top end? Intermediate?

Sorry Canon. Time to rethink your model naming.

.... good hierarchy should not need explanation.

It should be obvious.

1,2,3,4,5 etc.....

rz350: Uhhh? Who is going to buy Sony sensors? This could be bad for Sony as who else besides Nikon buys the high profit full frame sensors in any quantity? Do you really think Ricoh-Pentax or Leica are going to pick up the slack? Or the medium format is suddenly going to blossom into a huge market?
Nikon needs to get mirrorless cameras out into the market. And ones which have some thought put into them. No more Nikon 1's. And bring their software into the 21st century. I bought a D300s and it was an awesome camera. Way better in so many respects then the Canon 50D that I had. But Nikon has not had the innovation that went into those cameras for a while. They seem rudderless. As they state in their report, they have the D500 and D5 and those are improvements on the cameras they replace, but whither the rest of line?

Apple

I simply love it!

In reply to:

Sonyshine: Nice!
I still see no reason to upgrade from my original X100 though.

Exactly. What improvements Fuji have made are good but merely incremental.
None are compelling enough to splash the cash.

On article Our favorite gear, rewarded: DPReview Awards 2016 (270 comments in total)

The only mystery is why it took Nikon so long to make a camera ( D500) that their user base so clearly wanted ( to replace the D300s) and had been crying out for for a very long time.

At least Nikon heard the call eventually....

Not bad but this retired wedding 'tog thinks too many try too hard and end up looking contrived. Just my personal opinion.

goblin: Is this some sneaky advertisement suggesting that the handful of remaining users at Yahoo all beat the Guiness record by holding 80+ million accounts each ?

Yahoo host email services for many other providers around the world. For instance in the UK both BT and Sky are actually Yahoo email behind the BT or Sky front. We got an email from BT to say our email had been compromised by Yahoo and we should re-set our passwords.
