On In photos: Swimming with jellyfish article (20 comments in total)

Fabulous, so beautiful and graceful. I had no idea they could survive or eat without their stingers or in fact that they would lose their stingers due adaptation to environment. I always think of water ballet when I see jellyfish, as long as I'm not in the water with them lol they definitely have stingers here.

I can see this as being a nifty useful device. Compact android tablet and if it takes decent photos? a killer versatile tool. Hoping dp will review it when it is available.

On Introduction to Food Photography article (56 comments in total)

Your article is perfect timing, I've been invited to be part of a modest local exhibit in April. The theme is "Food."

Thank you.

I just requested that my library order it, keeping my fingers crossed that they will.

beespeckled: I enjoyed this review.
I was curious that the new Kodak EasyShare Sport wasn't included? This seems to be a very budget friendly option so would be curious to see how it fared against the other cameras in the review.

Personally, I have the waterproof Samsung AQ100/WP10, released in 2010, it seems to not have been marketed very well by Samsung. (may not even be in production anymore, sad to say)

Realistic expectations are needed when purchasing a WP. Undoubtedly, I wanted good IQ, but I did not make my purchase expecting the quality of my DSLR. I'm kayaking, white water rafting, enjoying the moment, actively involved. This is where these kinds of cameras are wonderful, no matter the brand.

RE: Samsung, only reviews I could find at the time of purchase were user reviews, I think there were only 4 on Amazon. All other mentions were the product announcements. I had to base my purchase (I don't usually do this) on price and photo examples posted. The camera was not available in stores local for me to test, so it was an online purchase. I haven't checked recently, but I don't think there have been any editorial reviews on it yet.
I have found the camera a mixed bag, it has its quirks. Some truly delightful shots captured, despite blind shooting most the time in sunlight conditions due to the usual LCD problem :) For the price and my uses I'm happy with it.
I'll try to add a user review on the dpreview camera page soon.
