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.

On Olympus announces Stylus XZ-10 enthusiast compact article (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.

Bit rate is measured in Mbps. The usage of mbps is improper.

EssexAsh: Dear Mr Nikon

Are you not slightly embarassed by the gouging of customers you carried out with the D800 D4 prices on release, while offering up the worlds feeblest of excuses? Are you actually aware how much the D600 will sell for? let us know now so you cant pop out the same excuse again.

Are you in any way ashamed of your quality control department which missed some blindingly obvious issues with the D800.

Have you never paid attention to a new product launch? The smart person waits until the smoke clears to avoid the initial issues that may exist. No one forced anyone to purchase the camera after launch after much noise was being made about the AF issues. Early adopters pay a higher cost.

The market determines the price as which Nikon can sell this camera. Don't player hate. If Nikon priced the D800 for $5k, it wouldn't get many sales. If the D800 was sold for $2K, it couldn't maximize profit. Nikon is in the business to make money, not be your friend. You sound immature and entitled. Sad. If you want a friend, get a dog.

I wonder what all the D700s are going to be sold at now? I've seen many recently priced at $2k used with low shutter actuations. This camera is at a very reasonable price.

In reply to:

aired: Very likely another fake landing. Black and white photos again? Low res photos? !!!Average person will associate low resolution and grinny and de colored photos as more authentic and real than vivid high resolution photos!!!

Black and white photos and videos can mask the fake artificial lights. In pro photography world one that can shoot and edit color professionally can do black and white easily. But not the case for black and white only photographer.

The light source that look too close to the subject can be identified

Reading all of your nonsense is giving me a headache. The wording is making me dizzy, literally. Please try to rewrite this so we all can understand, and then laugh at your nonsensical ramblings.

I read through ALL of the comments. I think an intelligence test should be mandatory before a person is allowed to post on an online forum. The comments by some make me cry due to the extreme ignorance exhibited.

I'm surprised you can read then! Very impressive!
