On article Nikon D3: The camera that changed everything (279 comments in total)
In reply to:

Peak freak: Interesting read, although I would be inclined to suggest 'game changer' for professional photographers, which leads me to...
The original EOS 5D was the first FF camera that an enthusiast could realistically afford, and 2 years before the D3! That was a game changer for the masses.

The 5D was not for pros for sports or journalism, its AF and modest speed makes it good for landscape and enthusiasts.

nemark: "3. If the D3 had come loaded with 'Snake II' it would have been perfect. Actually, given the amount of time professional photographers spend just waiting around, I've always wondered why simple arcade games weren't pre-loaded on professional DSLRs. "
Nice idea, but smartphones have it all. And most photographers do have at lest one. (I am not one of them - my Nokia is only a phone with some ad-ons, nor am I a fan of games :))

I think he was refering to the pre smartphoneexplosion-era!

Murat Sahan: Back to Rockwells criticism of Sony for their underwhelming color reproduction.

And so back to the main thing, namely the colors of Sony cameras. He (rightly?) points out that colors are inferiour to Canikon.

On article Throwback Thursday: Minolta DiMAGE X (134 comments in total)

The Dimage Xg was my first digital camera. It could even film in vga (I think) very small and allways with me. Captured som invaluable moments thanks to it. Thanks to smartphones now obsolete but im always grateful for the moments I have saved thanks to it.

fullstop: There is talk that some interational preorders are being cancelled

@fullstop, wow some people are never satisfied. And no they are doing the right thing by paying back people their money when the projekt didnt go as thought. They are NOT a bank and has made NO PROMISES of giving any interest.

@DPR STAFF: I think there is a misstake in the specs for the 8+, isnt the battery in the 8+ 3500mAh?

To staff: I like the throwbacks, especially this one, but it would be even more fun if you had supplied some pictures you took with them back then. :)

Yes, its a partnership.

On article OPPO 5x smartphone zoom system sample images (50 comments in total)

Just an idea to DP-staff, when you test something like this in the future, please take some sample pics with another phone or camera for compareson. Ideally would be one or two samples with another phone and a camera.

Apart from that I must say Im excited about this and I think that the pictures look good (albeit under ideal lightning but none the less.)

On article F is for '4th': Hands-on with Fujifilm X100F (424 comments in total)
In reply to:

deep7: Lots of comments but none referring to the short focal length as a disadvantage. Personally, I'd be sorely tempted if it had a more normal focal length (30-34mm) as that would be genuinely useful for general purpose photography. The field of view of this 23mm lens is too wide for most things, yet too narrow if I want to go wide.

As far as I can see, only Sigma make a large-sensor compact with a standard lens but that has other limitations! I know you could get a PenF + 25/1.8 combo or an XE2 + 35mm lens but they aren't so tiny.

I understand Fuji would have done their market research and I am clearly in a minority here but I am curious if anyone else agrees?

23 X 1.5 = 35 mm focal.....

In reply to:

cam2013: I think FUJI is another greedy company . Hello fuji this not a full frame camera, OKAYYY.
same camera models with few tweaks and exorbitant price tag.

People would be stupid if they choose ths fixed lens over sony A6XXX series .

I had fuji x100t and sold after seeing lousy auto focus . fuji cant touch sony's fast AF system. let the 4k thing leave aside.

Yes eBay and its full of cheap no good Sonycameras too!

On article Buying a second lens: what lens should I buy next? (296 comments in total)

I did like the article. For what its worth I didnt really start to have fun untill I got my 35mm 1.8 so I could blur backgrounds and then I bought a used 10-20 mm Sigma and now was that fun :)

In reply to:

mario loconte: hmm, yeah, could be a great lens. But not for me, I think this is somewhat an extreme focal range. It looks like a challenge - hey fella, mine is wider -
In this case, like the canon version, I'm not sure whether we can talk about "pro photography" on this focal range. I think the perspective is not natural at all. Of course this is my thought only , but I want to share it with you.

I have to say that you write in a very nice way :) now, about the field of view I think it can be useful and look natural but that you need to think about how you shoot and be careful.

On article ESPN publishes iPhone 7 Plus photos from US Open (340 comments in total)
In reply to:

WalPhoto: The pictures are in the "same low quality as any today's mobile" league. TBH, I see no difference to any of my iPhone4/5/Nexus5/6/Lumia phones I'm having here (we are developing apps for these, so we have plenty of them lying around). Only detailed pixel-peeping and loving/hating iPhone/Apple makes the difference, but when comparing to other phones and cameras, it's "just another phone cam". Btw: have you watched the last Apple event? It starts to get really strange: almost no real value, but a lot of BS/marketing and horrible "music". There was no MacPro update for years, no MacBook Air refresh, no MacBook Pro innovation - only the slow Macbook "USB-C Brick", very slim brick and with retina of course. You can get another useless watch with iTunes and iOS10 nonsense, but not an upgraded Apple notebook; feels sad to me, Steve would hate this pseudo innovation probably.

And the same goes for your average DSLR. ;)

Its incredible that an APS-C camera can give useble pictures at iso 12800 but it seems like it can. Bravo Nikon Actually, had a new look with the low light setting and it looks even better than the competition at ISO 12800. Almost as good as the D750

DukeCC: "displaying February 29th in leap years"

That would have been nice to have a couple months ago, eh?

Typical Nikon timing.

My guess is that is when they found out :D

In reply to:

graybalanced: What is it with people in the thread blaming Nikon incompetence for this? Do you have any idea how bad the Kumamoto earthquakes were? The video coming out of it was shocking...4-lane highways wiped out by landslides, bullet trains derailed, hundreds of thousands homeless due to destroyed buildings... and this is in a country with excellent earthquake preparedness as you can see in the much higher death toll in comparable earthquakes in other countries.

Remember the 2004 Asian tsunami? Hard drive production was severely constrained by factories knocked offline, and prices went way up for a while. This is that type of situation.

I have no vested interest in defending Nikon other than being interested in the DL. My SLR is Canon and my compact is Panasonic.

There will be a slight delay in the arrival of your new toys, cranky Westerers with disposable income. You'll live...

Iceland has what, 250 000 inhabitants and the housing and infrastructure for that? And that is comparable to a country like Japan?
