It appears a post or two has been removed from this story. Oh well, carry on.

Tough crowd here. Pat on the backs to all involved even if it happens to be Ricoh. This is a great thing.

Before "Where's Waldo"" there was "Where's Lincoln?".

On X-Transformed? Fujifilm X30 Review article (324 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tilted Plane: Weird, but it seems ugly to me! But the point is good--some of us want our cameras to look great, too. Yes! Maybe you need a poll/contest for "The camera that takes the best picture"--meaning of course, from the outside.

Tilted...apparently many find a larger point and shoot with a small sensor attractive. The Fuji fan base is an interesting group and I am happy for them.

In reply to:

Ben O Connor: Very well reviewed! This is ridiculously big for a cam made in 2014 by this sensor size! It would be an awesome machinery by an APS-C sensor.

Fuji, belongs to "film" ! Its the age of "SENSORS" ;)

I think some prefer a smaller camera with a larger sensor. You don't have to hold or shoot with an X30 to get an idea of it's size. There are links for that. Some don't mind larger point and shoots.

In reply to:

nerd2: Tiny sensor, steep price, no 4K video that every (android) smartphones have - why?

Oh - and isn't it considerably larger than RX100 series with larger BSI sensor and faster optics too?

I believe nerd2 is merely pointing out his/her issues with the camera as stated. These are legitimate concerns to some.

In reply to:

Mike FL: 57 "I own it", 23 "had it"

Will amazon sale the "23" as "OPEN BOX" to take a lose, or send these "23" back to to FUJI?

Any insight?

I miss the old DPR user reviews with star ratings given to cameras that were not even released yet.

In reply to:

2eyesee: Can someone please explain to me why people find these retro designs appealing? Am I just not 'old school' enough (I got into photography about 15 years ago)?

Because the cameras are not pink.

Papi61: Is anyone else tired of seeing HDR images or is it just me?

I like HDR but don't care for cartoons.

prossi: Dean is at a different level. That seems to disappoint a few, somehow...The man in the woodshop and the shot from the top of the motorcycle should tell you that Dean can take a 'regular' photo, the rest its all about what he wants to say with it.

"skin so soft". You are trying to be a wit and are halfway there. You were judging people.

Why the snarky "That seems to disappoint a few,.." ? Make your own point without judging the opinions of others. Come on.

I like the last shot taken from above the motorcycle.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 Review preview (446 comments in total)
In reply to:

Sergey Borachev: For such tiny cameras, a built-in flash is best. As it is, it can't compete with the A6000. Only for owners of M43 lenses. I will wait for the GM7.

Huh? For some it is about size. The A6000 is much larger and has an APS-C sensor. Two different class cameras. The comparison you are making is odd.

In reply to:

SmilerGrogan: Publishing photos of that small girl with food plastered all around her mouth is tantamount to child abuse. Girls have very fragile self esteem as it is, there is no need to feed it into the internet for further punishment. Internet content never goes away and those pictures will condemn the poor child to a lifetime of shame, obloquy, and ridicule.
One imagines that the person who took them thinks of them as innocent documents of a life stage, or humorous examples of a childish lack of self awareness. But they are neither, what they are is cruel.

Hi Nikon, I am not political at all and can't stand either side. FOX isn't the news group that would post that type of comment. The far right doesn't care about things like that. It is the far left that thinks that way. They are the ones who took "and the winner is" out of the Oscars because it means somebody had to lose. When you read "stop abortion" it is from the far right. When you read a comment stating that taking a photo of a kid with cake on it's face is child abuse THAT crap comes from the far left. The right has no problem with spanking a kid so cake wouldn't bother them. Both sides are dangerous.

Carry on!

Raist3d: So sad to see Russia doing this. I hope the rest of the world can serve as a living example of why this is ridiculous.

The real sin is that this shot won the contest.

Chances are the guy laying down in the fabulous winning shot is happy. A photo with a happy ending.

Thorgrem: So politics win a photo contest. Such a shame. (not that I have anything against homosexuality)

Thorgrem I am in full agreement. Had they not listed the winner and merely posted the photos I could have told you which photo took the top prize and it isn't because of the merits of the shot. Just another contest with an agenda.

To the winner I say "fabulous! Where did you get those curtains?".

In reply to:

ZAnton: Such contests have only one aim: to show to "western world" how rest of the world, helpless underdeveloped unter-menschen suffer, degrade, live in slumps, dirt and deseases.

Partly true. It is also to give awards to gay themed photography. Gay wins.
