Mister J: Fully-artic screen for me, a must-have.

How is that S1R type one different from a fully artic screen?

randfee2: again... how is this review popping up around the four featured articles... was there an update?
Secondly: How is the R6 review up which came out one month after the R5, which hasn't been reviewed yet?! I'd be interested to hear what possible reasons there could be for that.

And lets us say valid reasons become known.. so then what :) The review still stands!

Good products by Nikon
Next, apsc sales will be replaced by FF .. although there will be some fraction that will like to stick to apsc and mft
Overall.. anyone crossing 1K budget will go for FF and such a welcome range of options

Ok. so next.. will this help them make any better cameras?
Some companies stick to their philosophies regardless of where market is headed
Like Oympus not getting in FF game.. or even APSC milc

Jhaakas: Photos look dark and not that great, subject and scenery choices could have been better. They might be technically perfect but lack in color and brightness, perhaps the weather. I would prefer Canon or Sony for the colors and IQ.

The monitor, keyboard, settings remain the same for all the photos viewed and compared. its the end result that matters.
If one has to justify that .. oops its the jpeg, its the lens, its the monitor but the original images are great then there is something wrong.

In a review, the photos need to be impressive, craft, skill, subject remaining the same, different cameras will make a difference, else why bother making them!.. Choosing proper subjects is also part of the process
One can argue that they are realistic and down to earth..but all depends on what one is looking for.

Cant that shallow DOF be achieved vi computational photography?

A FF should be under $500 and lenses around $100 to make people use them in masses.

vytautasengineer: About image quality: the corners at f4 are soft. Very strange lens. It looks like it’s a manual focus lens with a built-in AF motor. Because closer to the camera body is the focus ring and the zoom ring is further away. this is very inconvenient. Take a look at the lens queen Canon EF 70-200mm F4L IS II USM: the zoom ring is in the right place, and the focus ring is in the right place.

I feel my 18-135 does a better job than this. Something is lacking.. the sharpness, contracts and color.

On article Tested: Four travel tripods for every budget (520 comments in total)
In reply to:

Greg7579: You left off the very best travel tripod in the world. RRS. Also, no travel tripod should have a center column.

I thought that having a center column willl give greater stability as it can hold from spreading the legs wider with the weight. Now take that cc away and you now have to make the legs and top hinges additionally stronger.. and it might come at the cost of some flexing. Again, this all can be offset by making the legs stronger and stiffer..but thinking a cc actually is a better design.

Max Iso: Oh i love these abstract data points. Let me give you another equally valuable data point. A professional rally driver can tear through an A to B rally in a stock Ford Pinto faster than i could in a suped up Focus RS. Fact. And?

Pros are likely to be more skilled than the average user, of course they can use lesser gear and still get results. Makes no difference to somebody like me. In the end it comes down to what gets you the results you need, which is why we don't see any pros using only phones on sports sidelines, or for BIF shooting.

There is no limit on number of photos one can take like the film era, so non pro usually will take multiple of them and capture most of the moments.. so not some much of composition issue. Its definitely the great equipment pros have that will make much of the difference.. The article is probably not much true, I cant imagine a pro using a cell phone at a major event... it might be based on some one off situations.

Jhaakas: iphone by default takes HDR.. and not sure how many dedicated cameras do that with such a ease.

"shoot RAW and in C1 push both shadow and highlight slider to 20-50 (u choose)
now u have HDR, easy" ==> this is not hdr, it is just play with settings in post. HDR needs more than one images superimposed and processed

In reply to:

TorsteinH: I find it strange that Olympus reviews always get such an enourmus ammonunt of comments. It must be the most popular brand in all of the world....
What else can it be?

The talk is about capabilities and the price point. And that is where it starts getting compared in FF range.. If this were sub $500, it wold be compared in m43 category without any fear of party crashers

With a phone camera there is not much skill aspect as there is not much to set or change, its just view and click
Difference between pro and consumer is not that great

The mystery is that if smartphones can do computational photography so well in such a compact body, why cant the cameras do it better. in fact its like a kid beating an adult

Jhaakas: The convenience factor is so much there for a phone camera. Five six years ago, I would pull my dslr to take photos to list items on ebay.. Later realized that it is so easy to upload from phone itself..

Actually its true.. :) . I do have to list my dslr in order to buy milc. I think a compact milc, even apsc would be much more easier to handle than my current dslr.. and the smaller ones dont make u stand out so much in the crowd.
