On Sony a6000 First Impressions Review preview (743 comments in total)

"The image quality isn't great - plenty of my images have soft edges, inconsistent corners and all the other defects that tend to come from kit zooms (collapsible or otherwise, pretty much regardless of brand)."

Thanks for being honest about it DPR.

"The images are watermarked..."

Hmm, maybe the better phrase would be:

"The images are HEAVILY watermarked."

The ergonomic design is starting to make sense now.

Amazing how fast the company learned to design a proper camera, from it's humble salt shaker beginnings.

Impressive low CA and distortion, but poor on vignetting. A good balance.

In reply to:

CameraLabTester: The only thing separating the GX1 series from other mirror less quagmire is the OPTICAL VF, and they removed it.

Welcome to the QUAGMIRE, Mr. GX1 Mark II, you are now a mediocre commoner, like the rest of us mirror less motley crew...

More like""The Worst UPGRADE of all time".

Canon is the CHAMPION of doing Downgrades to it's Upgrades, fooling the consumers, and getting away with it.

They are unbeatable at this event.

Great!

Another item for the sales counter person in a camera store that will be required by management to force down your wide aperture throat.

On In photos: Taking the lid off America's trash cans news story (39 comments in total)

Like most "Reality Shows" where the participants know they are being watched and monitored... this project is EPIC FAIL in FAKE.

They KNOW they are being monitored, so all the data is FAKE.

Swoop down on a typical "unwarned" family, and you will get a more accurate picture, which is the more unflattering and even disturbing data.

An opening of f2.8 will not render both the fire and the distant pinpoint light as sharp.

A smaller aperture was used.

On Nikon to offer D600 replacements if 'spots' continue news story (173 comments in total)

Way back in 2005 / 2006 Nikon did the right thing by replacing D70 defective batteries for free, including free shipping and handling.

That was a gesture every Nikon user loved and Nikon hater admired, respected, and became jealous off...

Fast forward 2014...

WAHAPEND?

TOO LATE.

Brand respect can never be bought by even a brand new camera on a stick.
