You have to be a diehard Apple fan to buy either of these to phones... With new offerings from Samsung, Sony & LG ... these new 6th gen Apples already seem rather antiquated...

But for extended sessions of Full HD recording, I'd much rather prefer the option of memory cards... 128 GB sounds good in theory... but with dozens of apps and the OS itself... that 128 GB is going to shrink considerably...

On article Benchmark Performance: Nikon D810 review (1989 comments in total)

The 5D Mark III is an all-round class act... definitely superior to the D800 / 800E / 810 in low light...

As for DXO... well I suppose the average Nikon fan needs their egos propped up from a "scientific" point of view... thus its existence...

Its amazing how many pro's use Canon... despite DXO's claims of Nikon's vast sensor tech prowess... at most major international sporting events white lenses still reign supreme... with perhaps with a thin speckling of black glass here and there... :)

On article Ricoh announces Pentax XG-1 superzoom (205 comments in total)

Waiting with bated breath for the Canon SX60 HS... It needs to take the crown from its predecessor and its rightful place as the undisputed king of all super zooms...

Alternatively Canon also need to enter the 1" sensor market... perhaps with an interchangeable lens system like the Nikon 1 series... and a fixed lens RX100 / 10 style compact / zoom...

On article Benchmark Performance: Nikon D810 review (1989 comments in total)

Looks like an incremental augmentation of the D800 / 800E ... Whether its worth it or not is anybody's guess... At least it seems like a better thought out product line implementation compared to the mockery of the D610 ...

And coming to think about it... why is there no 4K video capability...?! May not be used all the time, but considering the price point, it would be nice to be somewhat future-proofed in the video specs department...

Why can't Nikon introduce a new model with a brand new sensor altogether...? Or have Sony not licensed one out to them as yet...? I'll bet when the 5D Mark IV is out, it will incorporate a new sensor, image processor, AF module and 99.99% sure it will have 4K video under its belt...

On article Sony Alpha 7S added to test scene comparison tool (272 comments in total)
In reply to:

danny006: Finally Sony beats Nikon at high ISO. The A7s is almost 2 stops better than A6000, pretty good.

A6000 ? ... is cropped and double the resolution at 24 MP ... If this incredible new 7S sensor is only "almost 2 stops" better that's not really saying very much at all...

Just imagine what Canon would have been able to extract from this sensor... Lets not take anything away from the fact that the 7S has outstanding IQ in both RAW & JPEG... but nevertheless the lingering thought always remains... 12 MP seems rather passé in this day and age...

On article Nikon announces flagship D4s professional DSLR (70 comments in total)

At the core of the Nikon D4S is a newly developed 16.2-megapixel FX-format CMOS Sensor ............. You're sure its not the same old sensor from the D4 & Df just being recycled...?

nicolaiecostel: Yawn. At least increase the buffer, put it on par with the 1Dx. Or increase the FPS, put it on par with the 1Dx. Or just do something to it except adding a few software algorithms and a new proccesing unit. Who is going to want to upgrade for that.

And excuse me, but I saw some samples at high ISO from the DF and I did not find them particularly good .. I think there is plenty room for improving the ISO performance.

@ HowaboutRAW - To be honest I've never owned either the D4 or 1D-X ... my only real exposure to both these cameras has been due to the fact that my friend manages a photo studio and has both these camera's... Even here my time spent with both camera's has been somewhat limited...

My amateurish testing was conducted with the D4 being fit with an 85mm f-1.4G and the 1D-X with 85mm f-1.2L II ... And after about 100 shots from each camera plus examining them at 100% the Canon was definitely cleaner / sharper from ISO 12800 + ... It may be due to the different lens's being used... but they are both so good, one can't pick a clear winner...

Only the Nikon USA website, the D3300's sensor size is indicated as 23.2 x 15.4 mm ... but in Nikon Europe, Singapore, India & Australia the sensor size is listed as 23.5 x 15.6 mm ...! ( including http://imaging.nikon.com )

Which one is correct...?!

Considering the Canon 6D's noise control is on par with the D4 all the way up to max ISO... it would be highly improbable that the 1D-X would lag behind...

D4 only has the edge in dynamic range... but as far as low-light goes, the 1D-X looks as clean as the D4 ... but produces sharper images and seemingly preserves slightly more detail...

Are you sure about the sensor size specs...? Because 23.2 x 15.4 mm would indicate the old Aptina sensor from the D3200 is being recycled in this model...

Nikon's official website indicates 23.5 x 15.6 mm which would probably point towards the Toshiba sensor from the D7100 being used... Alternatively it could be a completely redesigned sensor debuting for the first time...

In reply to:

Akpinxit: IQ just a notch lower than 70D , never the less , I've become used to see Nikon sensors in lead

Even when you compare RAW ISO 3200 + images, the samples from both the D5300 and 70D look more or less equal in terms of noise & detail retention... I seriously doubt most customers would even bother to scrutinize at pixel level anyway to distinguish any differences...

In all honesty most image parameters are too close and as a result there is no decisive winner amongst these two cameras... What would probably sway a potential customer in either direction is handling, FPS, AF acquisition & video quality...

Does this RAW converter fully support the D5300... Because for some reason the D7100 RAW files look considerably cleaner than the D5300 images at all settings in low light... and they're supposed to be using the exact same sensor... with Nikon's latest & greatest Expeed 4 in the D5300...

In reply to:

photofan1986: "Score" "Dxo"' blah blah...I really wonder how many of you really compared the actual IQ instead of just relying on Dxo figures. I also wonder how we managed to go out and shoot before Dxo!

The ones whose sensors sucks are still outselling the ones with the "class leading" sensors...

The irony of the whole thing...

Indeed... sensors and moves are the same thing... I totally get your point...

Watching movies costs peanuts... so every Tom, Dick & Harry are free to formulate their own opinions...

Camera's require some level of investment... Unfortunately DXO behaves likes its the be all and end all authority on sensors... almost subconsciously coercing people to believe one brand is superior than the other based upon their scores...
