SayCheesePlease: Many don't seem to like the images of suffering and despair that have been awarded this year.

However this does represent the state of humanity today. I have lived in Asia the last ten years and avidly watch world news - these images show correctly the difficult turbulent times we live in.

super storms/ extreme weather- US east coast, Australia, Africa, Asia
civil war - middle east, Africa
school shootings- US
gun deaths 30, 000 year in US
extreme pollution - Asia, east Europe
drug violence- South America
City violence- South Africa, most big cities
Drug addiction/ alcohol misuse/suicide- most families
poverty, modern slavery- Asia, Africa,
chronic sickness
etc...
I don't see an agenda in these pictures.

It is a heartbreak world we live in.

I am not preaching unrelenting gloom. Just what I observe.

Beautiful image! What method did you use for the ragged edge?

Take care

Great camera.

I debate which would be better?

1) this TG2
2) high end compact with underwater housing (S100, RX100 etc.)

Always the balance between convenience and image quality...

AbrasiveReducer: I doubt it was more stressful than dealing with Nikon USA. But seriously, this sort of corporate taradiddle is not that uncommon and probably looms larger because they make nice cameras. Cameras weren't the bulk of Olympus' business and as far as I know there wasn't much fuss about the possible dissapearance of Olympus endoscopes, etc.

Endoscopes! For where the sun don't shine. Now I know why Olympus cameras are so great for low light photography.

SayCheesePlease: Flipbac makes grips that work as well and cost $9.99. ( flipbac.com)

Flipbac grips use the same high density silicon that is used on factory Nikon/Canon etc. camera grips and lens wraps.

High tech plastics, silicon , aluminum , magnesium etc. are all common materials use on modern camera exteriors.

The debate here is not the product but bias reporting.

On Just Posted: Canon PowerShot G15 review article (338 comments in total)

How long is a gold award valid when there is constant progress in photography equipment? It is a target that moves monthly- daily!

One month a camera gets a gold, the following month an equal camera gets a silver. Why? The bar moved.

On Just Posted: Canon PowerShot G15 review article (338 comments in total)

A statement that holds true to this review is ' all things considered ''.

There are many comments questioning why the RX100 was not rated higher. It has a fast lens and large sensor. Very important factors. But are they the only factors? No. Price, lcd, processor speed, video etc.

So with DPR's considerable camera knowledge and 'all things considered' from their viewpoint they did this review.

Take it or leave it, but I am sure this review was given much thought and debate before it was posted.

We all agree the RF grips are good.

This issue being debated in this thread is DPR reporting every new RF grip, when other camera companies receive no such coverage. Another question is, is it news worth telling 25 million people?
