On Nikon issues statement on rumored D600 / D610 swap-outs news story (118 comments in total)
In reply to:

rondhamalam: What do they do with the D600 after the swap?
Resell it?

I imagine they can refurbish it and resell it to cheap full-frame enthusiasts and still make out....

I don't quite see the point in lugging around such a beast and it's not full-frame?

In reply to:

TFD: Is there an optional retro Flash bulb flash taking big #5 flash bulbs.

I hope it has an analogue match needle exposure meter and a mechanical shutter cannot be retro without the sound of the mechanical shutter on long exposures.

Of course the original Nikon F's were manual focus so not sure that autofocus should be available on a retro camera, all you should need is a split screen viewfinder and your eye.

I guess it's akin to those record player/cassette/CD stereos that look like old Victrolas...

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II Review preview (498 comments in total)

has anyone tested it's "dust gathering" capabilities? My original RX100 had a dusty sensor within a few days, maybe not at Nikon D600 level, but it was still annoying to shoot a blue sky at higher aperture and see blue blobs.

kecajkerugo: Yet another good camera on the market...why do you all still fight?
Do not like lit go to Oly. Want to carry tank-like gun FF machine for that 10% better picture, your choice. Do you like Fuji menu over that one? Your preference.
It is reasonable to discuss camera's features, differences but naming such cameras "crap" in pure nonsense! The best and very the best hardware from each known company on the market is just at least adequate to take great pictures.

ok thanks for the replies!

Do you think a full-frame Nikon is just 10% better picture than a m4/3? Do you have any actual evidence of this (I'm being serious)?

what I can't figure out is - at these higher enthusiast price points - that cross over well into APS-C territory, what is the advantage versus say a Sony NEX-7?

Eric Ouellet: Up to now, this is the closest camera of my dream...
No dirt on the sensor (no lens to swap).
Not to heavy.
Portable (big but portable - can put on you neck).
Very useful range (24mm-200mm). Minimum is 24mm to me.
Has a flash (can't forget).
Very bright lens (f2.8) - can shoot sports inside.
Excellent stills and movie.
WOW ! WOW ! WOW !
I would have prefer:
- 24mm-300mm or 24mm-400mm if it's possible ?
- Mix of real manual of mechanical focus (with kind of manual activator)
But just WOW ! Closest to perfection to me !!! Thanks SONY !!!

ummm - don't be too sure about "no dirt on the sensor" -- my RX100 sensor is pretty dirty after a year of very light use. I think Sony sensors seem to suck in the dirt through the zooms. Even my NEX-7 seems to be a magnet for dust & dirt getting on the sensor (and I am very careful when I swap lenses). I never had this problem with my Pentax K5 - maybe their "sensor dust shaker" is just great.

the problem I've found with these cards is they're pretty damn slow, so transferring 16GB would probably take at best close to an hour? I mean say you can get 50 mbps (6.25megaBYTES per second) out of the fastest '.11n' network, that's 2560 seconds for 16MB (and typically you'd probably get 1MB/sec rates not 6+).

On Just Posted: Pentax K-01 review news story (358 comments in total)

the review (69% conclusion) seems a bit harsh considering what we've seen of IQ and a DXOMark of 80 -- all in a $749 camera? It seems easy to overlook the quirky design/ergnomics for that.

Dennis Linden: I like the My Passport drives, have about 1/2 dozen. I like the fact they are powered from the USB. I think their backup software is useless and us Mac Users just reformat them before using... They are great. I would like a quick and dirty tool to clone one drive to another though. Anyone?

for Mac I think "Super Duper" is excellent for cloning my laptop - making a bootable external drive etc. To clone my Windows "Boot Camp" partition I use the freeware "Winclone" (does it all from within the Mac OS X system).

This is neat, I may be in London and will check it out. They seem more cute snapshots (looks like he was a Leica user, not a surprise) with the main advantage his access to the stars of the day. It is funny there's so few comments here vs. the Nikon J1. Maybe they should have a show of Aston Kutcher's J1 shots? ;-)
