Forever Young: Marketing 101: Create artificial shortage to make your product more appealing.

No wonder why Nikon had not expected such a success...

On What is equivalence and why should I care? article (1722 comments in total)
In reply to:

forpetessake: Will this article finally stop those f2=f2=f2 stupid arguments? I doubt it. Stupid arguments come from stupid people: those same people who were explained the equivalence to many times before without any success.

p.2. of the article: " Four Thirds camera with a 50mm f/2 lens at ISO100 should produce a JPEG of the same brightness as a Full frame camera with a 100mm f/2 lens at ISO100 and, set to the same F-number and shutter speed" - the exposure settings - aperture, shutter speed, ISO - will be the same on both cameras. In this regards f/2=f/2 even if the FF picture will be more pleasing due to have 4x more total light.

It would be interesting to see what experts of the Rorschach test would say about him (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rorschach_test) - especially photos 4,7,10,11,12 - and about the people who think these are astonishing?

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III First Impressions Review preview (2979 comments in total)

Now I understand the pricing strategy of the Canon G1 X Mark II better! Although EVF is an extra cost, the zoom range of the Canon is much longer, and the sensor is also larger. It will be interesting to see a review side by side, but the Canon has a chance to perform better...

Considering the Canon equivalent is exceptionally great, I wonder why they priced it this way? Just because it is black?

Forgive my ignorance...Where can I enjoy 4K Video? My TVs are only HD, my computer monitors are HD! What is the benefit of 4K Video over 2K? So I can crop? In still photography it makes sense to have higher and higher resolution, up to a limit of course, as I can have large prints with high MP photos, but for videos? Is there any 'everyday' benefit of having 4K over HD? Will they look nicer on a HD screen? Or it is only for professional film making and large screens? If so, why put in in an amateur body?

"70-200s of all makes among least reliable lenses"

OR

the most abused ones... which is not a surprise, as possibly that is the range most people find themselves to shoot at...

In reply to:

nixda: Here are two things I'd like to see in a camera that haven't been mentioned before:

1. Square sensor. The image circle is a, um, circle, so why tossing out valuable sensor real estate? Aspect ratios can be selected via the menu or in post-processing, if desired. Also, one wouldn't have to struggle with landscape vs. portrait orientation and all that brings with it when it comes to holding a camera or mounting it to tripod heads.

2. The edges of the bottom plate should be shaped to be compatible with the Arca-Swiss standard.

How about a sensor that has circle shape? Then we would not 'lose' any information...

pete zeugma: only problem I haveever had is the camera groupings.
please return the 1D forum to 1D only cameras and create a 5D/6D petty squabble forum

I agree, that would be great!

VJVIS: BORING, Next...

Apart from bringing down the price of other mirrorless cameras, this is a total waste of time, money and effort, but I am quite happy the prices of other mirrorless cameras will come down.

Boring, NEX

In reply to:

Jim Radcliffe: Well, it appears to be exactly what I expected Canon to produce. No viewfinder and not really pocketable unless you are using the kit lens and have a good sized pocket (for camera and cash).

It's good they used the APSC sensor but honestly, if I were going to mount a 70-200mm on anything the body would have be more substantial than this. What is the point of a small, mirrorless camera using EF lenses other than to please those who already have those lenses?

To me this seems to have been thrown together just so Canon can say they have a mirrorless "system". The entire design seems to be aimed at NOT having any impact on their DSLR line. I think Fuji has a better concept.

I'm sure it will be "perfect" for many who already have invested in Canon glass and those who are within the Canon fold.

Canon is my choice over all other brands as far as a DSLR is concerned, but Sony is my choice of mirrorless. I have invested a lot in Canon because of their superior DSLR lenses, and I think the kit lens of f/2 of this new camera and the APS-C format was a good choice, but the lack of electronic viewfinder and a range of native M mount lenses will turn many potential customers completely off, including myself. Sorry Canon, but I will continue to have two systems... Sony is way ahead of you in this field...
