  • My reaction is mixed. In a field with an awful lot of me-tooism in play at all times, I have to hand it to HTC for a "Hit 'em where they ain't." approach. The extreme wide FOV could be fun in the...

  • Great stuff throughout, but No.'s 2, 6 and 8 are standouts. I think No. 6 and 8 would make terrific book or magazine covers as well as fine-art prints. Your B&W images evoke the style of late ...
  • Nice pix. No. 4 is most impressive.
  • The Nikon 1 J1 is an excellent choice, IMO. I just bought a second one, a factory refurb with 19-30mm kit zoom, for $162 on eBay. It's indistinguishable from brand new. (I strongly suspect it is ...
  • @le alain, I have presbyopia and wear glasses. I need dioptric adjustment on EVF's. The large-ish OVF is comfortable to use with glasses on, unlike my cameras with EVF. You might find it usable...

  • Why? Probably because many young iPhone devotees are into sci-fi chic, to coin a term. Why were most episodes of the hugely popular X-Files series nearly all darkish/greenish, darkish/grayish? Why...

  • @Pat Cullinan Jr, windowless saloons in Oklahoma? LOL.

    Thanks for the kind words, sorta. ;)

    @TacticDesigns, the Holga phenomenon has always struck me as a kind of counterculture-statement thing....

  • Point made very well, Raist3d.

  • .

  • The Q's 01 prime lens is very sharp and has a max aperture of f/1.9. I don't know about you, but I can get some decent available-light shots with that at ISO 400. Of course, the 01 is not a zoom....

  • Remarkable image and quite the ambitious project. A hat tip for a job well done. And with that supposedly awwwful tiiiny sensor, no less. Who knew? ;)

  • @ThatCamFan, with your "Hello Ricoh employee" comment you're lapsing into trollish behavior. That makes me wonder if you have an agenda for coming here to bash a new camera model besides...

  • Actually, Pentax offers an optical viewfinder for use with the 01 prime lens. It's wildly overpriced and takes some practice so you can get your framing right, but it is available and can make a...

    I have a Nikon V1. It's a good, useful camera. I find the optics very...

  • @Jeff Keller responded, "That's a Pentax error. We just copy and paste what we're given."

    Fear for the day some prankster at Pentax or some other source of news releases includes something...

  • Hey,where is the point for a camera with an APS-C sensor when there are cameras available with even bigger sensors? Photography should be all about sensor size and the amount of money "serious"...

  • The Pentax Q's crop factor is 5.6. Nikon 1's crop factor is 2.7.
