On article Canon announces five PowerShot compacts (150 comments in total)

I don't care at all about these, but it caught my eye that the ELPH160 and 170 are using CCD sensors?? What is that getting Canon? I'd almost think they were old sensors lying around, but at 20MP, they sound like new development. Of course, the limitation is immediately evident with movie mode of only 720 (maybe it's an avi file type?) Is there much upside to using CCD this day and age?

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.

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.

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."

I love marketing people...

And yet it's working. Go figure.

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.

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

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.

Legally, sounds like wikimedia is correct. Now, the macaque needs to lawyer up.

On article What is equivalence and why should I care? (2140 comments in total)

Incredibly useful concept that sadly leads to some of the most boring and droning discussions on photo forum boards.

Good article that will hopefully clear it up for most.

In reply to:

Managarm: >> Perhaps Nikon will help to relieve the pressure on manufacturers of 10-stop ND filters, as soon landscapers will be able to achieve the same effects with less powerful and more common versions <<

Yeah, right. ISO 64 would allow the usage of all those extremely common 9 1/3rd-stop ND filters instead of the ones with 10 stops. Huge difference in that department... ;)

Apart from that I also really welcome native ISO 64, finally going down again. I'd gladly trade anything higher than ISO 3200 for those lovely lower values.

assuming the lower ISOs would carry higher DR, deeper color depth and better s/n ratio (or at least 2 of the three) then I would agree.

In reply to:

zebediah: Fuji need to stop churning out the same camera every 3 months and work on putting out a new sensor. Moreover, the strange choice of high ISO noise reduction they introduced with the X100S, this camera and the new X-T1 makes me think they've already lost the plot.

This doesn't even make sense. Do you mean cameras with the same sensor?? The XT1, XE line, XPro line and XM/XA are pretty distinctively different cameras. High ISO NR comment may be valid, but I don't think I afgree with the opening line. Also, Fuji is not exactly "churning out" cameras -- see e.g. Sony for that.

In reply to:

Kund: Can someone plz explain what does "push the envelope" mean, for the non native English speakers?

It means to go past where the boundaries are. If everyone is doing X, you do X plus 20%. It means to be an innovator in a way others are not doing. I don't mean to be rude, but if you don't know a phrase you can just Google "what does 'push the envelope mean'" and you'll get some quick answers. Google is the all-purpose help/reference desk!

For me, I have no doubt the IQ will be great. I need video samples of the predictive and tracking focus :)

Seems like a great camera, but I'll need to wait for the price to drop.
