On Lomography adds Lomochrome Turquoise film to lineup article (90 comments in total)
In reply to:

photoshack: I know I'm a jerk...but why? Is this look so unique people will want to stock up on color shifting film?

Marty -- not that I disagree with you, but I've burned WAAAY more than $202.30 on gear-trrading, and I think that goes for a lot of folks on this board, so who are we to judge, lol.

On Nikon D750 real-world samples gallery posted article (348 comments in total)

One thing we can tell -- people taking test shots on Nikons seem to be WAAAAAY more fun than folks shooting any other cameras on DPR. Where's the picture of a hub cap, or one of the staffers sitting in a coffee house, lol.

On 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... something. article (1659 comments in total)

justmeMN: The Canon USA press release:

"Canon U.S.A. Unveils "Canon See Impossible" - A Branding Effort Empowering The Creative Spirit In Customers To Make The Impossible Possible"

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/about_canon/newsroom?pageKeyCode=pressreldetail&docId=0901e02480d4bf80

It's not even a new product. It's that new box logo, and accompanying marketing theme.

I thought it was a new printer. This is even more lame!

I like this quote from the link "Central to the new marketing initiative, the light within the borderless box represents the dedication the Company has to building new collaboration paths with both consumers and commercial clients to constantly innovate and to challenge convention"

-what does that even mean, lol. Yup, that's Canon -- "challenge convention."

It's probably another printer...

oops. no. I read below it's new branding. Yippee! I wonder how many mega pixels?

LOVE this camera, but am still concerned about sensor dust accumulation on a $900 camera. That is the only thing that gives me pause. If there was some known way to remove dust then I wouldn't hesitate at all.

Nothing in this interview convinces me Canon is relevant again for anyone other than those who have very specific, very high-performance needs for larger DSLRs.

On Photokina 2014: Sony stand report article (77 comments in total)

Regardless of how I feel about Sony's (lack of) APS-C lenses, someone in the sensor division sure got their bet right on that business model

In reply to:

WT21: I really hope the little clip-on flash can be angled backwards for ceiling bounce. That would be just awesome.

The standard in-built flashes (ala NEX6 and Panny GX1) were strong enough for in-the-living-room bounce flash. That and fill flash is all I expect out of an on-board flash anyway.

In reply to:

zoranT: Please explain the reasoning behind wanting to buy this, provided that 'pocketability' is not the main criterium (which it isn't, as mentioned in the review). Why wouldn t you go for Fujis or Sony NEXes mirrorless etc. that also are not pocketable? Certainly bigger lenses etc., but remember, pocketability is not the criterium. Yet, much bigger sensors and thus better IQ. I simply fail to understand why someone wouldn t prefer bigger sensors including a comparable price range, when size is not the main sales point.

There's not-pocketable, and there's not pocketable. This is the former, not the latter.

Bigger sensor is not always the answer. If you are convinced the size of the sensor is the only thing that matters, than go medium format.

In reply to:

burnin: An 'all-in-one" camera without a built-in flash doesn't make a whole lot of sense. At all.

I would love a built-in flash that you can tilt up, but there's nowhere for it. So, I hope the add-on one tilts up.

mpgxsvcd: Late Breaking News. Canon commits suicide. Nikon attempted suicide but they are on life support with a very grim prospect of survival.

I find the Canon "rumor" sites to be quite humorous. Most of the "rumor" posts are about printer and DSLR bundle deals. They have nothing else to say!

Hachu21: The exact same size as the eos M + 22 f/2... Oh my...

Actually closer to the old film Canonette

Canonette: 120 × 75 × 60 mm
LX100: 115 x 66 x 55 mm

In reply to:

WT21: drooooooool

Pre-order already in.

Only tests I need to see -- noise at high ISO (if I can get to 3200, I'm good), bokeh (please be smooth!) and AF -- but Panny's experience in AF should mean this is fine.

Also, I CANNOT believe this is $899. I said elsewhere it would be above $1,000 and I am so (wonderfully) wrong. Panny is going for market share, and to establish a classic.

In reply to:

zoranT: Impressive, but simply too big. Why not go for APS-C size cams that are the same size then? GM1 size was really impressive.

the phoblographer's review says the body feels a bit too small

On Samsung NX1 First Impressions Review preview (930 comments in total)

I honestly don't think the ILC market is big enough for all the vendors who want to play here -- Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji, Ricoh/Pentax, Oly, Panny and now Samsung. (did I miss anyone??)

Out of those, my gut tells me it'd be Ricoh/Pentax and Oly and Panny that are the weakest, all of which would be a far bigger loss to the gear/hobby/profession than if Samsung bowed out. But Samsung has deep enough pockets to tilt at windmills and any market share they take from the others (except maybe Canon, lol) is, IMO, a shame.

On Sony announces Alpha a5100 compact mirrorless camera article (106 comments in total)

Absolutely Sony. More bodies please.

I only own 2 native e-mount lenses. The rest are adapted. No need to upgrade my NEX6 -- it works just fine, thank you. You want my money Sony? Better/more mid-range e-mount lenses.
