On Gary Fong launches virtual camera tutorial service article (140 comments in total)

Piersvan: All the folk below who are getting so passionate in their dislike for Gary are missing the point. The technology in this camera is truly amazing and most people don't realize it.

Regarding the quality of Gary's teaching. Chill out. For $12 I learnt enough. If you have an A6000 and want to learn a few tips check this video/tutorial out. $12 / $800 cost price (maybe lower these days) - - > 1.5% of the cost.

Gary did make one or 2 mistakes in the video. But big deal.

Doesn't matter whether he charges $1or gives away for free, the product is still snake oil, the seller still is a crook, and the buyer still a fake.

E_Nielsen: I glanced through some of the comments and was surprise to see so many personal insults hurled at Mr. Fong. That's really disturbing and it hurts DPReview.

When I looked at the demo on Fong's Web site, I thought he was onto something. Doesn't anyone else agree that we need alternatives to the utterly useless manuals put out by the camera makers? THAT'S what you guys should rant about, in my opinion. And if people are willing to pay money for Fong's tutorials, it's their business and more power to Fong if his venture turns a profit!

Don't know Mr Fong personally, but his light mod products are based on fraud & represent pure fraudulent claims.

I am not surprised by snake oil salespersons who will never stop devicing new scams. Fangs light mod works like a charm.

I am surprised by the relatively large number of people who are fooled by those snake oil salespersons who have no demonstrated credibility in photography.

Just downloaded the advanced user guide. According to it the LX100 has wirelss (RF) flash function. Just another icing on the cake!

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 First Impressions Review preview (1864 comments in total)

An outstanding stills/video camera that I would not buy due to the lack of the touch-screen which takes away the ability of pseudo "focus pulling".

Otherwise it would have been a perfect camera: Small size that one can take it anywhere; large sensor/bright lens, 4K video, good choice of zoom range (that meets 99.5% of my usage).

On Photokina 2014 Video: The Samsung NX1 article (98 comments in total)
In reply to:

Just a Photographer: Samsung might have had the biggest stand at Photokina, it was also the most empty stand. Next to the fact that the NX1 didn't focus when I tried it. Might be due to the fact that the touch screen can't be turned off, I don't know. It didn't work for me at least.

Samsung seems to be a gadget company, not a camera company. Its just a thing they do too.

Back in circa 2009 Samsung CEO announced that within 2 years Samsung's camera market share would be more than 50% in total surpassing both Nikon and Canon. Now 5 years later, where is Samsung's camera market share?

A totally useless "review".
