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

mayurgogoi: Just 2-3 days ago I have read an advisory warning--"New Nikon D750 service advisory: possible image shading from shutter""--published in various web site--just on 9th JUly,2015--these advisory warnings are becoming a fashion now!Nikon D750 had many complains and now again such notice are on the web!!Now advisory warnings from Pentax???

Well--what hell is going on in camera Industries?Nikon, Canon and now Pentax has down in its quality maintenance---

why today camera companies are so careless?After Paying a huge sum of investments no one willing to get such awkward situation---I totally dislike it!We feel insecure while buying a product though it may be Nikon,Canon or Pentax etc....

Quality control should be strictly followed because to get service many not be so easy as we think and it is still a headache in 3rd world or developmental countries.

This is like we are on an unsteady Ship in deep Sea!

Received the notice from Nikon and checked all our D750's and the one's we've sold to customers and all ours have been ticketyboo :)

Received one and sold one, customer noticed it, I contacted Pentax (Ricoh Imaging) Support and had it straightened out that evening …. in a manner of speaking :)

On 2015 Superzoom Camera Roundup article (170 comments in total)
In reply to:

Marty4650: When the term "superzoom" was first coined, it meant cameras with a zoom range of 12X or greater.

But today you are reviewing camers that range from 50X to 83.3X zoom range.

Isn't it time to give these cameras a new name, to set them apart from what we used to call superzoom cameras?

Ultrazoom? Megazoom?

Ridiculous, indeed, Jeff ….but, oh so much fun and cool :D

munro harrap: A Good Deal?

A Good deal is when these guys make you a print themselves in a darkroom and develop, stop, fix, and wash them properly themselves, and sign them in person in ink when the print is dry (of course!) .

Art is a product of the very best that the artisan can do, not a machine scan or a print made by a commercial darkroom or a digital printer.

ART is a standard. Many of these snaps dont meet that standard. That they are made by famous people is irrelevant.

@ Kaj ….. one phrase "don't lower yourself" ;)

"Making stupid remarks is not. " Well, I'm glad, Munro, that you don't place yourself above that category: " Spock out!" :D

Hi Munro,

I'm in luck, I'm attending a News Photographers Conference, next month, where Mr. Moore is one of the speakers, so, I'll be able to let him know that one of DPR's finest thinks his, Mr. Moore and the others, photos no better than your average photographer, **yourself included, I'm guessing(?)**, could take on an average day .
