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...

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 Apple releases version 1.1 of iPhoto for iOS article (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.

In reply to:

IcyVeins: This is, quite simply, a godly lens. A lens of this quality normally costs $2000 or more, and is of course much larger and heavier. The corners are razor sharp wide open, there is no light falloff or CA, there's really just about nothing to complain about here. Anyone who is a m/43 enthusiast should be racing to get this lens, based on these samples and the test results from SLRGear.

Actully, I think both Nikon and Canon 85 f1.8 can provide that performance, oh, and they have such performance for 35mm cmos.
And, for $900, you can buy them together. The only problem is not as sparkle as Olympus.
PS:Did I mention 85 1.8g is splash-resistent? well, never mind... just enjoy what you like and share your best shot with us.

Seems it still implement some noise reduction to the Raw, compare to 5D3 and D4, the Raw from X-Pro1 seems blur and free of any noise.
