On article Sony introduces new XQD and SD cards (57 comments in total)

The irony is there is no Sony digital camera to support these fast cards.
Been years they've stick to USB 2.0 and UHS-I, even worse with A7rII which generate 80MB raw files.

It's like FZ1000 vs RX10 all over again:
6 month later, but with more affordable price and features.
anticipate discounts with RX100 series, love the competition.

I really want fuji to consider upgrade their sensor to at least 24Mp to match the competition.

I don't know how is that bundle price comes from.
Got my panasonic 14mm f2.5 for only $129 years ago.

On article Ricoh GR II: What's new and what does it mean? (205 comments in total)

I think GR II did 2 things right:
1. Save you $30 to buy a eye-fi card
2. You can now purchase clearance priced GR

Looks like Sony recycled the lens on RX10, it's still say "Carl Zeiss" instead of "Zeiss".

Actually, the optical construction worth $499, it's the golden ring triple the price, Can't imaging what will happen when Nikon release a lens with double golden rings...

In reply to:

Marek Rucinski: This is an example of an interesting practice: put some hardware in the device, for which the user pays (the cost of the wifi chip was included in the price), and then increase the value proposition of the product (by enabling the feature) *after* the product has been sold (!)... or not.

I think this practice is not only dishonest, but also damaging to the client (who pays for a feature he may never see enabled in the end) and therefore should attract attention of relevant regulating bodies.

Sadly, examples of very similar practices start to pop out regularly (uncompressed hdmi in Canon 5d III, cropped hdmi output in Nikon D600), but this seems to be the boldest example to date. In case of Canon/Nikon it's difficult to prove dishonesty, because they can claim genius, and incompetence of their engineers, respectively. Situation here is different, because there are physical chips that were obviously meant to be there from the beginning, but were intentionally not enabled.

I have a Sony action camera got the latest firmware to enable 1080/60p recording, previously it only have 1080/30p.

I was on the edge to sell my NEX-6 for NEX-7n and saw this, NEX-6 is great, but I prefer NEX-7/n's Tri-nav control style.

Scrozzy: Did anyone else play the drinking game where you have to take a shot every time he says "disruptive"?

I was wondering the same thing... he mentioned "disruptive" 3 times, it seems to me, like Sony want to be the "Apple" in mobile world.

Combatmedic870: *Face Palm*

Its just a phone....Just like the 15 other phones that have been released this year. There are better phones with better cameras.

Once one has one of the exmor RS sensors wake me up.

iPhone share the same sensor with others, but it has distinctive apps make it better for casual and creative photo taking and sharing.

On article Apple releases version 1.1 of iPhoto for iOS (15 comments in total)

What's good on iOS and Mac is you buy the app once and enjoy on 5 different computers/devices with years of free major updates (PS: OS excluded). So no worries to be an early bird with a trustworthy company.
I just hope Microsoft/Adobe can make this happen to their loyal users. I hate to buy different license for different platform and pay a premium when newer version comes out.
