Even bothering to comment on this product is a waste of our time.

On Canon introduces new $78K 50-1000mm cine lens article (164 comments in total)

So is this announcement supposed to make up for the stupid India or whatever non announcement it was?

If it costs more than a car why is DPReview bothering us with it?

Slow news year?

Next thing you know the video sites will be newsing only still photography info.

Maybe DPR is taking their marketing methods from Canon.

In reply to:

Bernard Carns: The problem with grabbing still frames from a video camera is the lack of pixels in the vertical dimension.

It's like having a 100MP camera that is 1 pixel high.

Its all panorama.

I guess you don't get the concept of rhetoric.
And I think you meant to type 16 not 6.

On Canon confirms price drop on select EF lenses article (140 comments in total)

Canon...Kodak....they sort of start with the same sound. Canon will have a softer landing. Are Canon lenses gonna be like Hasselblad lenses someday where you cant give them away? Both Canon and Nikon have not innovated enough. I have their glass but I'm using it on other brands bodies. Haven't bought a Canon body in years . Not buying their glass will follow.

Lets hope by now they finally figured out how to make adapters that don't jam on a lot of peoples cameras.

Another typical letdown from Canon.
The last cameras I've bought have NOT been from them.
When are they going to finally do something worth someone's attention?

On Dronestagram contest winners announced article (120 comments in total)

Interesting points of view.

But the images are really flat.

Where's the dynamic range?

These are the poorest quality images I've ever seen National Geographic endorse.

Maybe National Graphic has become the drone....er zombie....

Hahaha.

But, again, the points of view are somewhat interesting.

I wanna see the picture of the eagle chasing the guy on the ground controlling the drone...

On Chicago-based Calumet Photographic closes U.S. stores article (195 comments in total)

Sad to see them go.

I drive past one of their stores every day on my way to work.

Even Samys a few miles away doesn't carry the fun high end stuff any more.

But some other small camera stores seem to be hanging in there.

Sign of the times.

On CES 2014: Best of the show (minus the bendy TVs) article (53 comments in total)

Pretty boring show.
Sounds like the fog in Seattle is way more interesting.

On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)

Having to open the battery door to install the memory card.
That's real smart.
Maybe if you don't shoot video you won't need to open it that much?
16mp? and not a Favon sensor with 19 stops of DR? Hmmm.
If they would have made you have to open the back to install the memory card, then they would have really gotten the retro idea right.

I suppose this is why Yelp pulls disparaging remarks which makes Yelp reviews next to worthless.
