About me:

HAVE PurchaseD an IST*Ds and see if my Canon G2 can reach 200,000
shots..(EDIT)...I
don't think so but **EDIT: my Canon G2 did not reach 200K ..it was kind of halted at
about 86K when I got my IST*Ds (in Dec 2004) which went on to about 88K when it
got replaced by my 2nd K200D in Mar 09 :D. Got a Pentax K-r in Dec 2010 and a Pentax Q (w/ Prime and FishEye) in Sept 2011 :) and added the O2 (Wide Angle Zoom) and O6 (Tele Zoom) to the Q, as well as, adding a Ricoh GR IV this past May 31, 2013 and, after thrashing my Q and 06 lens, I know have a Q7 and another 06 lens :D

I can't believe so many people have no problem putting in such large files (1600 x) don't they realise that there are C&P'ers out there? :o

In reply to:

Cheng Bao: The interesting part is this camera's brand name.

Ricoh has dropped pentax brand on its fixed-lense digicam line, updates of old pentax wg line all bear ricoh name now.

Now this one use pentax brand again.

:D :D :D

My thoughts exactly, C_B, I thought all the compact were going to go with the Ricoh name?

b craw: Now, if we could just get some LDS to buy Canon.

Ironically, Canon took over Tamrac distributorship in Canada a little while back, albeit for a limited time ;)

On Nikon D810 Preview preview (1484 comments in total)
In reply to:

nikon power: Don't let the price scare you.
Nikon's shutter durability is 200,000 cycles.
$3,299/200,000 = 1.6 cent per picture.
Other branded cameras' durability cycle may be the same or less but the EXIF from their photos won't show NIKON, the King of high end DSLR.

@ Solarider ….. :D

In reply to:

RichRMA: Why do they optimize these lenses for use in the lower focal lengths? Does anyone really go around shooting at 150-200mm with such a lens? It would be far better to just make a 400-600mm f/5.6 and avoid the medium telephoto region completely.

I'm guessing, so people can use their 18-200 > 250>270 lenses in conjunction with their 150-500>600 lenses :D

In reply to:

LeitzKameraAktion: A large fish? That sounds even more surreal than my strawberry!

Trust me, it was. It was in an lane off of Vancouver's (BC) notorious Skid Row/Junkie town and as I was shooting it, there
were junkies wandering down the alley with some pretty weird expressions on the their faces ;) and only one asked what I was doing :D I'd love to find the pic and post it :)
