Plan? Weird title for profile info. How about you change this title to be 'Interests', or 'About Me', or something along these lines?

beespeckled: lol the bear is tired of the paparazzi

Yep, invasion of privacy while he was about to have some romantic moment with his "bearl"friend

M Jesper: Yeah, only a Canon fanbear would do that to a D4.

Exactly. I thing he must be a Canon fanatic.

Dheorl: It's a shame he didn't set the camera recording a movie before he ditched it, could have come away with some awsome footage.

We hope that he took some video with his other camera that recorded these images, although I doubt it.
It sounds like the whole episode happened very quickly, perhaps in a minute or less.

Bruce Crossan: Just finished watching the BBC "Yellowstone" series. . . told my wife I want to go there one day. She's not so keen now!

Tell her you would wear hiking boots and she can wear tennis shoes!! :)

LWW: Don't git them thar burrs in these 'ere parts, but does look like a little one?
If that was my Pentax I would have wrestled that critter to the ground and seen him off!

So long as his mother wasn't close by.

You can do that as long as you are larger than the bear, I suppose!

tonganqn: Maybe the bear was trying to make a self-portrait (kind of like what a monkey did a few months ago) but found (and realized!) that the lens mounted on the D4 was not the right one for portraiture.

He is just defending his privacy, maybe his girlfriend was taking a shower & he didn't want her nude pictures taken.

tonganqn: should tripod companies open a new segment called "Bear resistant"?

That or modify their warranty to say "Warranty does not cover bear attacks"!

sh10453: A lot has been said already, varying from praise to sour grapes.

All I can say is hats off to Canon's engineers!

This is a heck of a powerful piece of engineering and accomplishment in this field, and the class of this camera, although it's not for me, or even close to my budget.

Just designing for, and taking care of the heat issues, with such processing power, in a tiny (relatively) & enclosed environment, is by itself a formidable task, that its magnitude and difficulty may only be understood by electrical engineers (EE's).

Good job Canon EEs; way to go! Pats on the shoulders.

Thanks ... I'm not new to this at all.

I once heard a lady professor, who was in her 70s, say "what people say is generally their reflection in a mirror"!!
Of course she meant a reflection of the personality.

We also have heard it a million times that what people say is a reflection of their personality. They speak of what they are.

I'm talking in general here, not targeting our friend for his comment, which is not too bad of a negative comment anyway ... :)

Not a fan-boy at all. I don't even own a Canon D-SLR. But, as electrical engineer, I do fully understand the engineering nightmare that goes into this project.

In reply to:

jonikon: After checking the samples for image quality, the $800 price tag, and reading the review describing the sluggish performance and numerous shortcomings of the G1X, I think DPReview was in a VERY generous mood when they wrote the conclusion and rating for this camera! ;)

Yes, and I was stunned when I reached the bottom of the conclusion page and saw the rating that DPR gave to this camera, after pointing out so many shortcomings.

My humble opinion is that this is a very biased rating.
There are too many shortcomings that the review pointed out to give this camera such a high score!
The integrity of this review is now marred by this questionable rating.

I am a life-long Canon user, but I will NOT be buying this camera, even if the price dropped to 50% of what it is now.

I think the coming days & months will tell if this camera is a hit or a miss for Canon.

My guess is that it will NOT be a big hit.

Carlos AF Costa: Now you guys forced me to decide. I’m gonna make! How it will be the best camera ever? Well: It will be a full frame, will fit in the palm of your hand, weighs three ounces, focal length of 6 mm to 1200 mm. The features will be limited only by your thinking: Everything you can think and desire the camera will do perfectly. I mean it will be led only and just by your mind! Will have so much resolution that you will have doubts if it is a reflection of reality that you have in your hand or the reality itself. Finally it will cost you a dollar. Something still to criticize?

I think Kodak will be announcing this exact camera on April Fool's Day, which is tomorrow!

It will also have a smart phone (treble boot, Google/Apple/Microsoft) and a GPS built-in!

On Images of Panasonic GF5 start to appear article (118 comments in total)

That Explains it.

Now I understand why Panasonic is sending GF3C offers (with 2 lenses) to their email subscribers for nearly 50% off!

Such heavy discounts are always a sign for a new model to arrive, or a model being discontinued.

Dang it!!
Can Sigma go back to the original price for a day so I can buy one and get the $4,800 worth of more Sigma stuff?

I guess not. Too late for me. I'll just have to go to a corner and pout.

OK, seriously, I think it is an unusual kind of support to the customer. Thumbs up to such an initiative.

I agree that a lens adapter would be a great idea. Many people already have the expensive Canon or Nikon lenses (and a dozen people or less have Leica's, j/k).

Good job, Sigma. Now go make the adapter & watch the SD1 sales graph shooting up rapidly!!

On Canon announces EOS 5D Mark III 22MP full-frame DSLR article (488 comments in total)

Ouch!!!
For $3500 (body only) I don't get a stereo mic?? I demand a stereo mic!!!

I see tons of silly comments, and some rational ones. So I'll refrain from making a speech for or against the camera, if I had any!

Starting tomorrow, I am giving up one meal a day (assuming an average of $5 per meal) for the next 2 years, yes 2 years. .. I just dropped the first $5 in a jar!
That should save enough $5 bills to buy it with a lens and a flash.

Now I'll go & start the count down.

I've just finished searching all the Holy Books.

I couldn't find anything coming from Heavens that says "Thou shall stick to a 1/2.3" sensor in P&S cameras".

Actually, I'm sick of seeing the 1/2.3" sensor being used in P&S year after year after year .... without "REAL" improvement in image quality.

People have been crying to heavens & begging for a change (for a better sensor), yet we just get more & more pixel count from marketing idiots who think buyers are idiots and are still naive!

A few years ago, they called the cameras with this size sensor "5 megapixel cameras".
Now they have become 18 Plus megapixel cameras.

Are they feeding them some magical fertilizer?? Miracle Growth, maybe?

Dear Sony Marketing,

I promise you that I will not buy any more P&S cameras that are based on 1/2.3" sensors!
So none of these cameras will be coming home with me.
Got it?

Kodak learned the lesson when it was too late!

Carlos AF Costa: Is it my system or something is wrong?
I can´t see any studio scene comparison of G1x and GX1

Works fine on my end (Windows XP-SP3) with all browsers, IE8, Firefox, Opera, and Chrome.
Probably you have "Scripts" and / or "ActiveX" components disabled.

In reply to:

sh10453: I'm confused about the "1.5" CMOS sensor"

Its dimensions are 18.7mm by 14mm.

That is equivalent to 0.736" by 0.551".

So where does the 1.5" figure come from?

Thanks for your kind reply.

What a clever way to fool a buyer!!!

The diagonal is 0.919", and their magical way of describing it becomes 1.5"!!!

I'll have to keep that in mind. ... :-)
