  • Dana, I remember my first cable TV bill. It was something like $12.50 a month many, many years ago. But they kept adding new features and more channels, and kept raising the price. Eventually, I ...
  • Replied in seriously...
    Patrick, are you one of those "payment buyers" who thinks $438.54 a month for 72 months is a better deal than buying a car outright for $21,000?
  • Replied in My best anology
    Consider the case of electronic books. Right now, you can go to Amazon.com and buy a hardcover copy of David McCullough's new best seller "The Wright Brothers" for $9.74. Or, you could buy the ...
  • Normally we buy things we plan to use a lot, and we rent things we only use occasionally.Like we buy a car we use every day, but we rent a limousine we need twice a year. We buy a house we live in ...
  • I assume you mean a modular camera, in which you could upgrade each part separately. Like having an ILC with a "digital back." This is very similar to what the Red videocams do. Just remember, ...
  • Adobe probably realized that most people are unwilling to pay huge sums of money every year to get some minor upgrade. Some new feature that we might or might not need. So they did the only smart ...
  • You must be new to Flickr. Those Flickr upload stats are notoriously unreliable and should NOT be taken as the gospel truth. In many, many cases they make absolutely no logical sense. I suspect ...
  • Replied in Will it matter?
    I understand that you want "to do the right thing" by buying products from the most ethical companies even if they aren't the best products or the best values. And this is a commendable thing to ...
  • You are technically correct. Every Sony E lens will work on Sony E or FE bodies. And every Nikon or Canon full frame lens will work on a Nikon or Canon APSC body. And in most cases the reverse is ...
  • (1) Leica - safest bet. They are very profitable and they own their niche. (2) Nikon F - second safest - they are primarily a camera ...
  • And the point is.... no two cameras are exactly alike.

    So what does that have to do with my saying this camera is a very poor value? Why does this mean they shouldn't throw in a charger at this...

  • I believe Obama was showing a Muslim king the proper respect, by bowing and kissing his hand. In any case, it was a nice show of humility and submission. This is something very few American ...
  • And a sensor twice as large (EM10) or three times larger (XM1).

    I thought that both lens speed and sensor size meant something?

    Incidentally, an EM10 plus an f/1.7 lens costs less than an RX100...

  • My feeling... if I can buy on from Amazon for less than $20, then the charger should be included in the box with a $1,000 camera. They include all sorts of junk with a camera that no one ever uses....

  • Look... this little camera is only twice the price of a Fuji XM1 or Olympus EM10.

    It's a real bargain! Not because of image quality or value... but because it fits in your pocket! :)

  • The built in charger might be fine for some, but it is a nuisance for those who want to charge a battery while using the camera, or charge multiple batteries at the same time.

    Of course, the...
