Rugged? LaCie? I'm still laughing...
Once owned the Voltaic battery pack shown above - it lasted less than a year with very light use.
oh, a fashion (Apple) accessory....
Canon should invest in sensor technology (not ridiculous marketing schemes) - sensors which can compete/surpass Sony would be massive marketing in and of themselves.
Sad, Hassy used to be 'THE (you know what) and now it's only '(you know what)'.
Yea, I guess if/when the cloud is 'up' you can do that, otherwise.......Fact is, not everyone lives in the US, and not everyone has a 10M 99.999% uptime connection. Thanks Adobe.
So, the D4S main competitor, the Canon 1DX, isn't available comparison???
MASSIVE, MASSIVE, MASSIVE FAIL DPR!!!!!!!
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.
