On Canon PowerShot G7 X First Impressions Review preview (371 comments in total)
In reply to:

Catalin Stavaru: Canon may be late to the party, but if the color rendition is the typical Canon, it has a winner. I for one don't need a viewfinder, I just need good image quality in as compact a camera as possible. I sold my Sony RX100 (and a NEX-5n) for the awful colors. If the G7X is priced right, I think it will be my next camera.

+10000000
Simply cannot stand sony's color reproduction.

On Samsung NX1 First Impressions Review preview (483 comments in total)

TBH, no matter how other manufacturers brag about their AF speed (esp. Fuji LOL), Panasonic is the KING! Let's wait and see if Sammy can approach that.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (1554 comments in total)

Today was a good day, until this anti-climatic announcement came.

- From a long time Canon shooter.

This might be the first and last time that I say this to a M43 lens:

It's priced reasonably.
Given it's longer range than 70-200 FF lens, it is way way more versatile, and I have confidence in the IQ of a Oly HG lens. Oh....also, the 0.21x magnification, taking into account of the crop factor of M43 sensor, is class-leading.

In reply to:

Omexis: One thing that I don't get, with all that resolution why put a 3” 460 x 320 screen on the back?

@JDThomas

O yea, lets remove all the buttons altogether since this camera is likely shot tethered.

It's simply stupid implementation with a crappy screen period.

On Travel tripods: 5 carbon fiber kits reviewed article (81 comments in total)

I have always thought that travel size CF tripods have no advantages over aluminium ones, and the recent reviews seem to agree with my observations.

BTW, I don't think it's sensible to have separate reviews for CF and AL tripods, because if a person is in the market for a tripod, they'd certainly compare both.

In reply to:

ARB1: I wonder if I can just purchase the little red Leica sticker and put it on my Olympus OMD.

Sure you can, be prepared to shell out $1,000 for it.

In reply to:

Michael Piziak: Those 5 tripods look very similar - almost as though they were made by the same company.

The Dolica looks exactly like my Sirui...

qwertyasdf: I had been using the PS I bought like some 5 years ago, I don't even know if it's a CS 5 or 6. No issues, no subscription crap.

Does having the latest (not necessarily the greatest) PS matters so much to a real photographer?
Aren't there many great photos created before PS even existed?

Sorry guys, if you think that having this CC is so important to your pictures, you might just not be a good enough photographer.

Put it another way: Adobe made great products in the past.

On Sony drops list price of Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 article (201 comments in total)
In reply to:

SammyToronto: Typical example of a company charging an exorbitant price for a camera not based on merit, but because they can. They were one of a kind in the market, so, to Sony, that meant ripping off their customers is fair game. Thank God for Panasonic, and competition in general!

Why don't you work for free first before complaining???

Ben O Connor: ANY THIRD PARTY PRODUCERS OUT THERE (metabones, sigma, etc.) PLEASE MAKE A BELLOWS HOOD FOR A M43 SYSTEM ALSO LOOKS COOL! AS THIS ONE HERE... PLEASE.

I hope I screamed loud enough that they'd all heard me !

It's not a hood though.

In reply to:

Minos82: I will shed a tear with grad photographers when all of the following becomes true:
- Grad images stop charging extortionate fees from already indebt students for their graduation image

- These images are indeed actual work of art and not an industrialized process devoid of any workmanship
and finally:

- Grads are given the opportunity to actually have friends or family step in the very place the photographer is during the graduation ceremony so as to take shots of "the moment". This "golden position", devoid of any obstruction, is unfortunately reserved/attributed in a monopolistic way to these people therefore preventing parents to take better pictures of their own offsprings' graduation

Untill then, no tears from me. Those businesses, clothed as education institutions, would sell your homeworsk to tabloids if they could.

It's not a work of art
An automatic photobooth can do exactly the same thing, if not better and more consistent.
