That thing is so ugly it could have been created by the Nikon V1 team!

On Leica M9 comparison shots added to dpreview database article (149 comments in total)

This makes no sense. I'd buy a Leica before I'd buy that dog of an SD-1. You should review the M9 before reviewing a camera no one is going to buy.

On Nikon 1 System First Impressions article (255 comments in total)

It's striking how ugly this system is...almost like someone said "let's see how ugly we can make it!"

On Why make a small-sensor mirrorless camera? article (285 comments in total)

It makes no sense to introduce a camera that offers no compelling reason for its purchase. DOA.

On Studio in the Wild article (24 comments in total)

A few pictures of the setup with background and flash units in place would have been helpful.

None of those images really thrilled me.

On Updated: Panasonic DMC-FZ150 studio samples re-shot article (50 comments in total)

I'm at a loss as to why this just-another-small-sensored superzoom is getting so much attention.

In BNC Aug 2011 numbers, 7 of the top 10 spots are DSLRs. Mirrorless cameras are at #5, #9, and #10. That's actually worse than one year ago.

EC and ISO buttons are by the shutter to be reached by the forefinger, but the only control dial is a front control dial which is operated with the same finger...I say find the person who thought that was a good idea and fire him.

On Fujifilm announces X10 high-end enthusiast compact article (279 comments in total)

2/3" sensor is 1/1.5"...just a smidge larger than the sensor in the LX5 with a crop factor of 4. So f/2 is like f/8 on a full-frame. It's gonna have all the limitations of a compact-sized sensor. It also looks bulky with that lens and viewfinder. And considering all the operational issues of the X100, unless this thing is 500 bucks I think I'll rather go with a Nikon P7100.

It's interesting. Dunno how useful it will be. But the market will decide.

They should keep an eye on Sigma and see how charging luxury prices works out for them.

On Olympus PEN Lite and PEN Mini announced and previewed article (30 comments in total)

With Panasonic and Olympus making smaller and smaller bodies, and with Pentax entering the field even smaller, I get the feeling that the general feedback on this breed of camera is that it's simply not small enough for the consumers who want them...and they never will be, as long as the lenses protude as far as they do (even pancakes) and as long as they're in that 350-400g weight range.

The bottom line is people want...what they've always wanted...was a compact with a big sensor...not a somewhat-bigger-than-a-compact with a big sensor.

WHY?
