On article Nikon announces development of flagship D5 DSLR (442 comments in total)

And here we thought Nikon packed up shop and stopped working on new products. It's obvious to see who the fools here are.

"Moore's progress has been slowing down a bit in the computing world."

Was the use of "bit" in reference to Moore's Law intentionally humorous?

Glen K Wells: I have a NEX-7 for sale with some gold glitter glued on and a tinsel strap, anyone willing to give me £6500

Look the king is wearing no clothes!?!

Why so cheap? Is anything wrong with it?

In reply to:

Drazen Stojcic Buntovnik: One more vote for Really Right Stuff. Expensive, but worth every single penny. I'd never go back to Manfrotto when it comes to ball heads.

Manfrotto for ballheads is a bad choice. I bought a head for around $200 and soon after realized I should have spent a few more dollars on a RRS head. Live and learn, I guess.

jhinkey: Sorry, no sympathy to the photographer. Don't like it, don't sign the contract.
Don't like these kind of contracts, form a union and boycott Ms. Swift, but don't whine.
What happened between Apple/Swift has no relation to the disagreement that this photographer has with Swift. He's just using the Apple/Swift coverage to promote his unhappiness with the contract he signed.

If you read it, you'd know the photog was not spot on, and her management responded and corrected the falsehoods he made. I hope you can read. The photog is using this to further his own agenda.

I bought a Benro B3 Ballhead. I wish I hadn't bought it. I'll do more research next time....

On article Go wide! Hands-on with Canon's 11-24mm F4 L (229 comments in total)

I thought the lens was large until I saw the price. It had better be the most magnificent piece of glass in that focal range by a decent margin.

On article Canon EOS-1D C sees $4000 price drop in North America (250 comments in total)
In reply to:

razadaz: Its price drops like these that put me off investing in any expensive camera. I know of no other manufacturing business where prices drop continuously after a product is launched. Even software companies like Adobe (where development cost is high but the production cost is zero) don’t drop their prices like this.

PicOne, it's not their fault they don't understand the concept of "investment" or "investing"....

A purchase is not an investment. Investment assumes a return that exceeds the value of the purchase price of an item, with the time-value of money factored in. Your camera will mostly likely not appreciate, unless you're really famous.

Please stop saying investment when you mean something totally different.

Their Warranty Expense account just grew a bit.

bobbarber: I wonder if people will post about the "affordable" price of FF on this thread. I'm sure the 400 2.8 is an awesome lens, but 12 grand? Really?

For these reasons it's apparent both of you don't understand business and never will.

Jogger: I dont think DPR should be covering pro-cine equipment. Just leave that to EOSHD or dvuser.

I enjoy looking at these items and if DPR does it, I don't need to go elsewhere.

This lens needs to be in its own category. This is very very impressive by the sharpness only.

More like US Patent Troll.

On article Olympus announces Stylus XZ-10 enthusiast compact (198 comments in total)
In reply to:

GeraldW: Hey Timm, lighten up. There are a few 1/2.3" sensor cameras around that do quite well up to ISO 800, and with the fast lens, that will seldom be needed. What cameras? Panasonic FZ150, FZ200, and ZS15, Canon SX230HS, SD4000IS, Pentax Q.

The Sony RX100 as a competitor isn't valid, as the street price in the USA will be 2:1. It won't sell unless it's under $300. The Canon S110 is valid as a competitor, and Olympus would seem to have chosen a faster lens to offset the larger sensor; but slower lens, of the S110. At full zoom, the XZ10 has a 2 stop advantage.

As far as DOF control, I think it's funny that what was considered a drawback 50 years ago is now touted as a feature. I started as a serious hobbyist in 1955, and somewhere along the way, "selective focus" became a new way to compose. For many situations, a large DOF is an advantage.

This camera is obviously not for you, and maybe not for me (I have an S90 and a G15); but I can see a number of valid uses for it.

I think you meant "couldn't care less". If you could "care less", it wouldn't be so bad. Your message is unclear due to your failure in provide a clear statement. I can only guess what you meant.
