On article Gear of the Year Part 4: Dale's pick - Samsung NX1 (408 comments in total)

Dale, I do find your lack of faith disturbing. Lord Vader never said "Luke, I am your Father".

Mis-quoting a Sith Lord will result in an audience with the Emperor, and he is not as forgiving as I am.

Wubslin: Apple as a company is over. They should diamantle the whole enterprise and return the money to the shareholders.

Ignore Wubslin, he doesn't even own a camera!

Wubslin, I think you should get yourself a life.

Would you like to explain why?

sunjester: This place is more like a church than a camera review site.

@MHS,

Ah! I understand.

In that case, I don't agree with the dogma, support the Creed or espouse the eschatology of the DSLR.

Considering I have not seen one of these heretical mirrorless devices I, therefore, do not believe they exist. If you can prove otherwise, please send one to me, a Sony A7II will do.

Nuno Souto: Once again, the elephant in the room has been missed...
Mirrorless is by design more precise for focusing for one very simple reason: it doesn't have to rely on a flipping mirror subject to imprecise stops potentially causing it to introduce errors in focusing.
What many slr makers try to hide is that the mirror mechanism is a major cause of failed focus shots in their hardware.
And it's been so since the days of film!
With mirrorless, that is simply impossible. Hence why I switched 5 years ago and have never looked back: if my Oly says it's in focus, it is.
And checking for sure in really difficult situations is as easy as twitching the focus ring: it immediately shows me a magnified section of the image where it's dirt easy to get precise focus on. Try to take a shot of an animal through reeds with a slr and then with a mirrorless camera and it'll become very clear why mirrorless is the way to go!

There is not an elephant in the room.

In reply to:

Gesture: Good overview. What's missing is how Sony (SLT) and Fuji (hybrid) both tried to modernize the viewing systems.

DLSR mirror systems simply haven't tried to innovate in terms of combining the benefits of optical plus information. Much like Contax was the only entry in the film era that tried to rethink the optical viewfinder.

But we have come a long way from Phil Askey once questioning why any DSLR user would want Live View!!!!!

As a matter of interest, Sony wasn't the first to use SLT. It was Canon in the 1960's with their Pellix 35mm camera.

Everlast66: There are several vocal Samsung supporters around (like HowaboutRAW), but unfortunately for Samsung most of them don't want to put their money where their mouth is. A lot of talking, little action.

And you can't understand why people don't want to put their money where their mouth is?

I think this is a shame.

I have used the NX10 and NX300 and have had really excellent results from them, especially the latter.

I have been thinking about upgrading the NX300 with the NX500 which I won't now as I have lost all confidence in Samsung, especially in light of their UK announcement.

I think people will start dropping the NX system like the proverbial hot bricks and their sales will drop off rather steeply leading to the demise of the NX system.

Mind you, I may be able to pick up a second-hand NX500 or NX1 going cheap.

Samsung also make the FCS for the Korean K1 main battle tank.

No matter how hard I try and throw away Instagram's Boomerang. It still comes back to me.

On article Western Digital announces plan to acquire SanDisk (70 comments in total)
In reply to:

Biowizard: OMG I hope not. My many SanDisk drives (physical and SSD) have always been as near 100% reliable as possible. My WD drives are mostly in the pre-smash-to-pieces state, because they KEEP failing, but I DARE NOT bin them - because someone, somewhere, can probably access my (broken) data.

WD - leave SanDisk be, PLEASE!!!

Brian

@Biowizard

If you use software called Killdisk to zero your disks' data, put a hammer through them a few times to make sure, then a few bullets from the gun you are bound to have for good measure, then not even God could extract data from your disks.

I agree with your comment.
