  • My first thought when I saw this was "DPR is trolling! What fun!"

    My next thought was, "well, if it makes someone happy, why not?".

    Who am I to judge? I bought the black minivan because the...

  • Sorry folks, this question was supposed to end up on the LG G3 page - I had no idea that clicking on "Ask a Question" would re-direct to the forums. So, to re-phrase: According to outside ...
  • Created questions Camera review coming?
    According to outside reviews this phone's camera beats all current phone competitors for image quality, low light useability and so forth - so is there a review from DPR coming? Thx, Colin.
  • Nah, don't believe that. My current phone is a Nexus 4, which in several tests I can find, beat the S4 in some respects (including standby) and I can barely get the thing to last the day, with ...
  • @ Len_Gee: How? preorders start on the 12th..... (srsly, where?) and, 12 hours of browsing? A whole day of talking? two WEEKS standby?? OMFG, I'm having chest pains! That alone is enough to sell ...
  • Now that it's been mentioned on the front page again (8/7/14), I was wondering if anyone knew what it sold for? Although I agree that it was a mistake to allow two "designers" to re-imagine the...

  • Agree, the B&W shark is a keeper, and the mosquito or gnat is as well. The others,.... Not so much.

  • Why do I like the runners up rather than the first couple of "winners"?

  • Commented on 2014 Waterproof Camera Roundup article

    There are other options. I use a $35 soft underwater case with my good quality compact zoom, and I have no issues. I'm particular about sealing the case and I always test in the hotel before going...

  • @NAwlins Contrarian:
    Hmm, not seeing that..... which one?

  • Assuming you're talking about the studio comparison photos, hover your cursor over the "i" symbol in the lower right corner and it'll tell you what they're using. The GH4 has the 45mm f/1.8 and the...

  • @Sixpm:
    "I have made a 60" x 40" print from the V3 ...."
    So you said in an earlier post.... and also about a Ricoh camera a few months ago. Printing a lot of those 40 x 60's are you? you'd think...

  • So disappointing. As though bells and whistles will make up for spectacularly poor image quality. 76% is being charitable. And $900 for a fast 85mm equivalent? Please.

  • It's a bit early to judge, there's nothing at the long end at all; it's pretty much a random collection of shots, from someone who likes the immediacy of wide angle.

    If these are truly...

  • I think they took some pretty shots as well; looks like they had fun with that lens; it's defintely sharp in the middle. But.... show me a shot at f/1.2-2.0 with a corner (or even an edge!) in the...

  • I think they took some pretty shots as well - looks like they had fun with that lens; it's defintely sharp in the middle. And I can see what they meant about the bokeh - still not that...

  • @bobbarber - that's not my point, my daily driver is a G5. It's specifically NOT a GF3, NEX 3, PM-2, E-PL5, etc, etc - and it won't be a Canon G1X Mark II, either....

  • Are people really not interested in having a viewfinder any more? Or do Canon and Nikon think that "we don't need no steenkin' viewfinder" is the only take-home message from increasing mirrorless...

  • Commented on Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview

    Huh. A new-generation R1..... for $1300?? Nah.

    For $820 I could get a Panasonic G6 kit plus the 45-150 and get better quality photos and videos in a smaller package, faster lens notwithstanding....
