I wonder if this one blocks third party lenses from working as well.

On Nikon Df preview (2817 comments in total)

That's odd. No comparison with any Sigma cameras.

I just get a kick out of seeing this app operate!
But as Activesack pointed out earlier, It saves the image as video clip.

On Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? news story (1514 comments in total)
In reply to:

Scott Greiff: Sigma DP Merrill cameras are not represented. Why?

Obviously this pole is not at all about image quality.

This poll should be renamed to "WHAT CAMERAS HAVE THE BEST BELLS & WHISTLES".

The Sigma DPM series should have been included because it fits the "Enthusiast Compacts" category!
Well that being said, image quality might be a distant 3rd in this poll and not to be a priority with wannabe be photographers.

Antivirus software plugins for those type of cameras will be soon to follow..

In reply to:

rowlandw: So where is the DP review of this camera???

The images were transmitted, so it would qualify.
Rover uses the "Deep Space Network" service.

They have a further reach than the AT&T international service. :-)

Oops. Didn't put a label for the 17-70 OS.

On Sir Jonathan Ive to design one-of-a-kind Leica M rangefinder news story (164 comments in total)
In reply to:

RayAnderson: Nice looking and very "cool", easy to use.

All photographs will require prior approval by Apple.

You will not be able to download images from the camera to any non-Apple product.

It will produce images of average quality, but owners will believe that they are "absolutely amazing"!

Love that last part!

In reply to:

jack24: $1k for a compact camera just because of 49mega pixel but with very basic features..? No-no unless it is leica.. Plse show us more selling points.

How in the world would a RED DOT give it more selling points?

By your logic, If Sigma was able to buy the license to use that Leica "Red Dot" and stick-it to the DP1M then you would not have a problem with it.

Oh yeah.. That Red Dot would bring the price up to another $1,000.

An 8K standard was just approved last week.
Oh well.. :-)
