So basically pay full retail price for used equipment? Smart businessmen if they can pull it off.

whtchocla7e: The point-and-shoots are alive and well.

The Nex 3/5, the small m4/3 cams from Oly and Panny, the Nikon 1, the Q from Pentax, the premium compacts from various manufacturers?

They're all point-and-shoots in disguise. They sell in mass quantities, the majority of the buyers never purchase an additional lenses or accessories.

Your casual photographer may now have a more capable camera with interchangeable lenses (and they may not even know it!) but the point-and-shoot mentality does not change.

The definition of a point-and-shoot should be more dynamic to reflect the current state of the (lower end) camera market.

If 499 out of 500 people use a Nikon D3100 as a point-and-shoot then I call Nikon D3100 a point-and-shoot. I redefine product category based on shooting style. That's my new 2014 way of thinking. Catch up :)

Not bad for a DSLR.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2702 comments in total)

This camera being featured on the front page of this site is the most sad thing of all. The Photokina week is supposed to be fun and exicting while this camera is the exact opposite. It may appeal to the people who are still stuck with Canon lenses and the "small sensor in a big body" mentality but I bet these people are no longer the majority on this site.

You can get the same or higher quality image cropping from a FF 36Mp than from this contraption.

The semi-pro/pro APS-C cams are running out of arguments to justify their high prices...

While this wide zoom is ok, I don't get the reasoning behind releasing the other slow zooms for these supposedly enthusiast cams...

Now this is a fine piece of equipment. One could almost get depressed looking at the new Canon offerings. This in contrast is a breath of fresh air to ease the pain..

On Canon unveils PowerShot G7 X with 1"-type sensor article (51 comments in total)

I guess I have to wait for PowerShot G7 X II to come with an EVF... For now, the RX100III remains the more attractive option.

Oh look, another antiqued DSLR on the market.

A deadly combination of state of the art electronics... and a flappy mirror.

Good on Fuji for milking this thing for as long as they can. When you have a fan base that parts with their money at the drop of a hat, you can just sit back and watch the $$$ roll in.

The A6000 will be replaced and forgotten in 6 months. Sony won't spend the money to update it.

2/3" sensor... Did you really listen to customer feedback now, Fuji?

I like shaky video. The hyperlapse footage looks unnatural.

If the original image as stored on the memory card - after the monkey pressed the shutter - belongs to no one then Slater was free to edit the image and publish his version. His published version is his original work and he absolutely has the right to demand that Wikipedia takes it down.

He should have not posted the photos on the internet. He traded his images for 5 minutes of fame. Like many of you do on a daily basis...

Interesting idea but the execution is too chaotic in some shots, not in a good way.
