How about an arm with a hand grabbing your boobs? I can't even think about all the fantasy offerings :)

snegron2: I always find it funny how the only video clips posted anywhere by cell phone paparazzi are of the last few moments from a police vs "innocent victim" encounter. It would be awesome if media agencies would release the entire encounter, not just the inflammatory segments.

Right on!

Does this reflect growing distrust of the populace to the police dep.?

This camera badly needs image stabilisation and at least 5X zoom. I wouldn't consider it an action camera until optical stabilisation is implemented. Image stabilisation is what's holding me from buying this cam.

MustyMarie: Why is a box a good design for a cam ? I can only imagine how poor the ergonomics can be on a box for shooting pics ?! Now for using on a Octocopter/drone, why not aerodynamic cube ?

So GoPro invented the box, always wondered who did that !?? ;)

So GoPro crawled into a box, most of us desire to escape one !!

Maybe for a better lens housing with image stabilisation and zoom.

Seansprague: However, despite my atrocious experience with the LX100 'self destructing' in my jacket pocket while being turned on by mistake, I still think it is a fabulous piece of kit and I am considering buying another one, while being very careful that it does not open inadvertently. Still, I am beginning to read other owners' reviews which mention the noise it makes while zooming in (not out). Nobody else has (dared) mention switching it on in their pocket by mistake and the havoc it creates. Could I be the only one to experience this so far? Look out for other reviewers with the same comments in the near future.

On the positive side, and this is something rarely mentioned in reviews about this camera, despite having no mike socket it does have AUDIO INPUT LEVEL CONTROL (4 settings) which makes it great for videoing very loud music at festivals or night clubs, for instance, without audio distortion. As for not being as small as some cameras, that's actually a plus: its big enough to grip!

Don't keep it in your pocket. And if you do, take the battery out.

On Canon EOS 5DS / SR First Impressions Review preview (2364 comments in total)
In reply to:

alpshiker: (…) Will the 50 MP be useless? They will certainly be precious when it comes to re-framing and cropping into images. Those cameras will be awesome tools for wedding photography for instance, and even some portraiture style, every aspects where a soft and very subtle haloing effect is a welcome feature. But for landscape or architectural photography, both miss the point. How many years will we have to still wait for a mature, well thought, non AA filtered 50 MP Canon camera? Nikon learned the lesson well and developed the D810 with no AA filter as a successor for the D800/E.

I don't want to have to use a tripod for every wedding shot I take.

It's not lagging behind Canon any longer. The last firmware upgrade fixed this. In fact it recycles faster than the 600RX

Biological_Viewfinder: We are at a turning point in photography history:

The truth is that technology is making leaps and bounds. We now have a smart phone with more MP than any consumer camera currently made. The truth is that smaller is better. And in the future children will grow up to mock us and our backpacks of camera gear, as if we were Bill Cosby walking to school in 3 feet of snow, uphill, both ways.

The truth is that it just no longer makes sense for the average consumer to go out and buy a dSLR. Once shutter-delay is resolved, there won't really be any reason at all for an average consumer to buy anything big and bulky, ever again.

Yes, Bill's way to school was hard. But that gave value to the process of obtaining knowledge.

On 5 Reasons why I haven't used my DSLR for months article (591 comments in total)

These arguments are futile and a waste of time. For what I care you can shoot with a soap box after you drill a hole in it. I'll be shooting with my Canon 5D mark III or my Panasonic pocket cam if I feel like it. Or even my phone.
And I do not feel any need to justify my choices or bash other cameras, DSLR or otherwise.

mpgxsvcd: The GoPro doesn't need an LCD anymore. It has an app that does live view while recording.

Sdaniella, your comparisons don't make sense. You compare apples and oranges.

Too slow with the app though.

Sdaniella: here, more info:

this is meant to outdo/replace smartphonecams, for hd video or stills, which rarely handle ultra-wide angle that covers up-close 'whole body' self-shot perspectives without cropping head or lower body/legs.

so far, I've been avoiding upgrading to a smartphone because their cam FL are mostly longer than 24mm equivalent fov, and so never wide enough for my non-fisheye general photography needs. but fisheye fov expands on the wide option totally missing on smartphones unless one mounts aftermarket WA lenses for smartphones, and even fewer (none?) have swivel screens

What 2?

In reply to:

jcmarfilph: And the trend goes on... hiding mediocre IQ, blown highlights, blocked shadows by putting non-sense filters.

How about just using those filters creatively?
