Don’t look down

NPhoto - - Over To You Letters - Terry New­man, Ton bridge We love crop sen­sors – the D500 is the most ex­cit­ing Nikon D-SLR we’ve seen in years. Don’t miss next is­sue, when we put it head-to-head against the D750.

I was ea­gerly look­ing for­ward to the DX vs FX fea­ture in the cur­rent edi­tion of N-Photo, so I was dis­ap­pointed to see that it con­sisted of just a list of spec­i­fi­ca­tions and lab test re­sults for each model, with not a sin­gle im­age. Most read­ers are not in­ter­ested in all the tech­ni­cal stuff, they just want to know what the images will look like.

In vir­tu­ally ev­ery pho­tog­ra­phy magazine there is a con­stant look­ing down on any­one who uses a cam­era with an APS-C sen­sor as though they are not proper cam­eras, see “DX out­fits are ideal for travel and walk­a­bout pho­tog­ra­phy”, and the con­stant ref­er­ence to “up­grad­ing”. This sug­gests that real pho­tog­ra­phers only use FX. Please, more ac­tual images and less crit­i­cism of the small guy.
