  • I really struggled with where to place the X-S1, since it is an older model. But it did have an X in it's name, and I didn't want to add another column for a superzoom category. In my defense, it ...
  • Replied in Good point
    Perhaps so.... but I will probably buy one when I can find one refurbished at the Olympus Outlet Store for $749. It will be a nice upgrade from my EM5. And I only say that because I have no ...
  • Replied in This one....
    This shot cries out for a different aspect ratio. There is just too much sky in it, and the dark lower left corner needs to be less emphasized. I also applied some color tweaking and sharpening. My ...
  • (1) The Pen F is a stunning beauty (2) The GX8 is a better camera That's all you really need to know. Now move on, there is nothing to see here.
  • It is entirely my own creation., based on my own perception of where those products fall in the marketplace. Fuji might position them differently. I am not a Fuji user right now, but I do believe ...
  • Flickr could be at risk if it isn't profitable. So this means Yahoo might raise prices, or even sell the company off. In no case can I imagine it would just be "shut down," because they have 87 ...
  • I hope this helps.
  • Peter, I don't go as far as you do with all that dinosaur and buggy whip stuff. But I do believe that MILC cameras are permanently here, and will slowly continue to gain market share. They simply ...
  • Replied in Like this?
  • Replied in No, I wouldn't
    If those lenses existed, I'm sure they would be great lenses. And many people would buy them. But for me and my budget, the 17mm f/1.8, 25mm f/1.8, 45mm f/1.8 and 75mm f/1.8 are as fast as I need. ...
  • Replied in 18-55
    I wonder if bundling an entry level DSLR with an 18-135mm kit lens would make any difference? Or perhaps, the novice market might prefer a fixed lens Sony RX10 or Olympus Stylus One with even ...
  • Replied in The problem
    DSLRs have many advantages over camera phones, but those advantages may not matter so much for the mass market. They can do things that only a photo enthusiast might want. The mass market customer ...
  • This means you need a fast lens. A large sensor would help here too. This means you need fast AF. A zoom lens also tends to help too, since you may need to reframe and compose quickly. This means ...
  • You folks just don't get it.

    A photograph of this neck strap recently sold for $1.1 million.

  • Cuba was an American possession after the Spanish American War. No doubt the baseball was introduced there around that time. And from there, it spread to the Dominican Republic, where it is also ...
  • Perhaps, but since I tend to "live behind the curve" it might be an EM5 II. Or maybe an EM1, once the EM1 II is announced and the price gets cut enough.
  • I should have guessed that you would be too lazy to do a google search .
  • And I probably forgot a few. Of course, this doesn't include all the Konica, Minolta, Panasonic, Yashica, Pentax, and Canon cameras I have owned too. This is definitely a sickness of some sort! :-P
  • Replied in Faulty logic
    One thing for sure, it is difficult to draw conclusions if the only criteria is "stricter gun laws" because gun violence rates vary widely based on age, race, ethnicity and gender, without regard ...
  • Your are safe as long as nothing happens that could threaten your safety. I'm pretty sure those 130 people in Paris though they were "much safer" because they weren't allowed to own guns. But then ...
