On Photokina 2012: Interview - Sun Hong Lim of Samsung article (99 comments in total)

"You cannot leave the house without a smartphone today."

I feel sorry for him if he feels that way. I don't carry a cellphone. The idea of being connected 24/7 is unappealing to me.

Some people think they'll leave the house without of a phone, only to die because of a flat tire. :-P

In reply to:

TheEye: The Mini has the new sensor, but the E-PL5 has the old sensor? What?

Me sad two. ;-)

DPR should not have hurried and taken their time. Quality over speed, right?

In reply to:

pixelcollector: where is the flippin' E-P4/5 ?
this is not cutting it. cheap looking design, subpar lcd res.

One of the Oly guys said something about something revolutionary regarding one or the other upcoming Pen (finder?). Well, "maybe, maybe not."

Maybe the revolution is the relative low-res display, which due to some trickery, looks twice as good as it should.

28 mm in a compact, meh.

The lens should be 24- 135 equivalent and not slower than 2.5 at the long end. A 28 mm equivalent is just not wide enough for me. The sensor should be a bit larger. Also, an EVF accessory is needed. I wouldn't care if the camera were "too large for a pocket."

On Evolution of an image article (123 comments in total)

While the first shot has possibly some compositional issues, mostly the even splitting of three (four) planes, the shot is effective due to the windblown tree's dynamic and its roots clawing into the green "island of grass." It's a very picturesque image.

Compositionally, the day 2&3 images may be better, but the tree is much less effective compared to the one in the first image.

On Panasonic DMC G5 preview (93 comments in total)
In reply to:

Peiasdf: Why is the EVF still aligned to the lens? What sense is that? Move the EVF to the left (viewing from back) so people can use the touch focus thing they added.

The finder above the lens means as close to a direct line of sight as possible. Do you see any scopes mounted next to a gun's barrel instead on top of it? ;-)

ybizzle: Yawn...Another generic looking camera without a soul.

You can't dismiss aesthetics completely. And if you intend to draw the "it's just a tool card," well, I'd rather use a nicely made and well finished Rahsol torque wrench than a clunky torque wrench peddled by Sears. Do you care what your food looks like? Or do you eat only tasty mush? ;)

On Nikon D4 & D800: What do the Professionals Think? article (391 comments in total)
In reply to:

jnk: Considered that D3/s is the camera body that went to outer space where failure rates are not acceptable at this level and you're complaining about a 'wet job'?

Get real about the build of Nikon - Navy Seals used the D700 for their night missions and that should spell out the sealing questions of these bodies.

I'm a Navy seal on a mission to take nighttime underwater pictures of the Anunnaki on Nibiru later this year. :-P

On Nikon D4 & D800: What do the Professionals Think? article (391 comments in total)
In reply to:

Telefoto: "In a perfect world, I would have loved to have seen the 24.5MP of the D3X harnessed with the speed and low light capabilities of the D3S. Neither the D4 nor D800 are that camera..."

Yes! As a D3x user, that's my feeling exactly. I've been mystified why no one else seems to voice that view, but I guess it's because there are very few D3x users on the forums. So, for all the 12 MP shooters here, I guess the D4 looks like an upgrade (stills wise) and the D800 looks like ... I dunno exactly, but it's some kind of step forward even though it breaks with the purpose of the D700 (high ISO shooting). But, I can't help thinking this strange D800 broke the bank. Witness for instance that even in DX mode, it's a step back in FPS from the D3 generation. That's strange and rather unwelcome to me.

"one time more pixels"? As in 1x2= 3? :-P

On 'No Future in Photojournalism' Interview: Dan Chung article (278 comments in total)

Everybody wants a blurb in the form of moving pictures. No wait, not everyone does. ;-)

Motion picture and still picture are very different from each other. A still picture has to capture something of significance or of interest in the form of a slice of time. Many people prefer moving pictures because those don't tax their brain as much as looking at a photograph and trying to make sense out of it. Looking at a photograph is an active process. Watching moving pictures is exposure to a constant stream, which is for the most part a rather passive process.
