donutlover: The best part is that you have to send in the card to a lab to get the photos processed. Takes about 10 days to two weeks.

Too funny!

A 4 minute video would have explained this bag much better than this wordy article.

On article Hands on with the Hasselblad H6D 50c/100c (259 comments in total)

Even for the highest quality magazine center-spread this camera is overkill... so what's it used for? Astrophotography? Orbital spy camera?

maxnimo: Black background is way better and easier on the eyes. I can't stand a glaring white background.

And I have to inform you that most people eat excessive amount of sugar and develop diseases.

Duh - yeah! And most web pages are irritating and not easy to read. So what's your point?

Bill29: Is there anywhere that lists the resolution it records its slow motion 960 fps at?

Good question! Since they don't say, I will automatically assume it's something like 150 x 100 pixels.

Can't help thinking how funny it would be if that lens kept extending outward about 30 or 40 inches.

Pritzl: Remember when a hard drive's space was measured in MB? Ah, yes. The good ol' days! :P

Meanwhile, my fountain pen could achieve about 2 bytes a second on a good day.

lylejk: Incredible. Still, cannot wait until the magnetoresistive memory devices gets released. The densities will be an horder of magnitude (maybe 2) bigger and both read and write cycles will nearly be as fast as D-RAM. :)

Holographic memory was supposed to be the next huge leap - at least 3 orders of magnitude.

PorscheDoc, way back in school I used a fountain pen and a jar of ink to transfer my data, so that should make me way older than even you.

My wife is so ugly that when one of these drones catches her by the pool, the traumatized operator will smash all his photo gear and never touch a camera again.

maxnimo: I heard that the cost of housing in Seattle is so expensive that if you don't make at least $150K a year you'll have to live either in a cardboard box or a van down by the river.

On the plus side, cloudy, cool moisture is heaven compared to blazing hot cancer-causing sun of the southwest or the sticky hot humidity of the southeast.

Those microSD cards are just too damm small. If you drop one you can't even find it. If you try to pick one up with large fingers you need tweezers. If you sneeze at one it's gone out the window.
I prefer regular SD.

GRUBERND: i'll repeat it: the only real requirement one needs for this job is to know that DARK TEXT goes on LIGHT BACKGROUND to make text legible. and being stubborn and convincing enough to finally break the tradition of one of the noughties design nightmares.

Actually a light gray text on a black background is the most soothing to the eyes.

Now the real question is - will this lens be able to take a better image of a distant bear than let's say a Canon or a Sony or a Fujinon lens?

maxnimo: The only thing I want is a 64bit version of PaintShopPro 9. Anything else is just junk or overpriced krapp to me.

And there's no way in hell I will spend years mastering a new user interface after having already mastered a perfect user interface that can never be improved upon ... ever.

Eric, 7 was good, but version 9 was the peak of perfection, then corel screwed it all up.
