Nice looking rig (even though I'm a Canon guy).
I think the reason why people don't take Samsung (or Sony for that matter) seriously is because their product range is so diverse, eliminating photographic products due to poor financial performance will be relatively easy and financially painless for them. However, on the consumer side we all have the problem of 'investments' in glass, and it won't be financially painless for us to make a change.
Appreciate the heads-up, deleting content today.
Robert Morris: Aw, the price we pay for all of our gadgets.
No, actually they're TAKING THE BRIBES (China has strict environmental laws - which are for sale).
chillgreg: Poor widdw alligator :( Now try that with a 28' Aussie saltwater croc and I'll be impressed.
Oh yes, those salties are soooooooo terrible, run everybody, run!
Heck of a project. Worst place I've ever lived though....
Old school baby!!!
Once again, the Japanese 'cultural' norm of management by consensus shields the clear perpetrators from personal responsibility. So typical, a cliche really.
For that price, backpack straps should have been included like Tenba does. Miss.
SushiEater: This review to say the least is inadequate. There are no pictures inside the chamber. Why is it so important? Good third party grips have a metal plate running all the way to support tripod socket so camera can be hanged with a strap like BR. Bad grips have small plastic strip for socket support.
As far as "Weatherization" none of them are, even OEM regardless how much they advertize it. Regardless how sealed all of the compartments are the biggest opening is the wheel. If water gets though it the whole grip will flood. And those who carry cameras upside down should be aware of it because that is the worst entry point there is.
just make sure you don't get one (Pixel) that kills the batteries when not in use......
JordanAT: This is good news for everyone who swears by their Leica glass and wants to continue shooting with it. The problem is that every digital camera is disposable these days - you're essentially buying a "lifetime film and processing package" onto which you put your lens.
To make matters worse (or better, depending on your point of view), the serious advances in digital film are occurring in the 24x36mm and smaller sensor sizes. What good is a photoreceptor site with 1.5X the area when the technology behind it is 1/3 as sensitive and more subject to spurious electrical signals (noise).
IMHO, it might be worthwhile if you were trading absolutly sensor performance to leverage existing inventory of (very good) glass. But you're not - you have to go buy all new glass. And since SLR manufacturers have been designing glass for digital sensors for quite a while now, they have the jump. Unless you need MF to feel superior, or justify your fee, there is little or no practical case for using it.
Seemed a bit pompous to me as well. Like he said, 'the proof is in the pudding', so let's see what Leica can actually deliver.
No desire to be politically correct here - I live in the 3rd world, where both the 'cloud' and even electricity are less than reliable. Is Adobe so smug and US centric that they're going to ignore most of the rest of the world?
racketman: work commitments or maybe she doesn't want the attention, anyway surely they can send her the memory card. Great service from Taiwan airlines.
CA has planted more than their share of aircraft - the lady made a smart move.
Whatever it takes. I applaud them for using a somewhat unconventional solution.
Murray Rothbard: Pro photographer: Anyone who shoots full frame and pretends that Sony doesn't exist.
Bottom line for Sony/Olympus (they are married now you know) is their cameras (no matter how good or bad) are just another product line Sony's sea of product lines - and can be done away with at ANY time if the financials so dictate, with negligible effect on the overall corporation. I seriously doubt Canon or Nikon are in a similar situation.
So, OSX has single digit market share and you do the comparisons on a Mac????? If this was going to be an Apple article, might as well have reviewed Aperture also.
Wow, 220 quid for CF? Guess I'll keep lugging my old CF rig around then ;)
