AriFLM: Hello,My name is Ari, I'm the distributor for FLM in the USA and Canada.I first want to applaud the excellent work work Mark Banas has done here, it's incredibly thorough and articulate.The weight of the CP10-A1 is indeed 277g (0.6 lbs.) and the B&H website should soon reflect that.Also, the other option for a ball head with the CP10-A1 is the CB-32F; it will not only fit onto the table tripod, but uses a much more sophisticated friction system, same as the one found on all of our pro heads. It also has a separate pan knob. Thank you
$167 for pocket tripod is too much, no matter how good it is. And don't get me wrong - I own full size FLM tripod.
Travel tripods at 3+ lbs and $200++? Thanks, but I'll keep my Slik Sprint Mini II
PatrickVienna: The market is full with cameras! So if i want to buy a camera with my hard earned money, of course im going to analise and thing about what im buying!Im not going to just give my money away! Its quite logical. This ''international street photographer'' says that the dumb blond who goes into the shop and buys the first camera with flash and buttons she likes is a better shopper than me!If everybody was thinking more what hes buying,the market would be full only with REALLY GOOD CAMERAS and we wouldnt have to think so much.
People will be better off analyzing their shots and try to improve them. And blond is right - liking the camera is much more important for creative work then deep understanding of its specs.
CameraLabTester: The DSLR range with the MOST number of lenses available for it will always win, no matter how much over $1000 the price will be.
Yeah, sure, but MOST people buying DSLR never go beyond kit lens.

Can you compare troll to a photographer?
PS: mirrorless is the future - as obvious as it is.
For all you, f-o-o-l-s: read FB fine print! They hold ultimate copyright for any picture you upload.
poorfatjames: I just shared this with a girl in whom I'm interested that worked in Afghanistan for a few years and totally got a date out of it! Thanks, Dpreview.com!
Don't waste your roll! :))
So much about lenses sharpness, high ISO and bokeh - no, they don't really matter.
Tape5: There is only one thing worse than carrying a lot of garbage and that is carrying a backpack full of garbage. At least when there is no backpack, one remains more rational and takes only what is essential.
Besides, what is that camera I see in the top photo? A featherweight Olympus with its two tonne entourage? Haha.
That optional Kata strap looks like a death trap. Sorry, I am nearly finished....
It is inelegant and looks too much like a double cheese burger held by a toddler.
"There is only one thing worse than carrying a lot of garbage and that is carrying a backpack full of garbage."- It's clearly stated 'on-the-go amateur'. What else would you expect? :))
tarnumf: And LX7 that is currently sells for $299 didn't make to "recommended" ???
Well.. FZ200 is not that "compact", should not be on the list at first place :)

tarnumf: DPR awards becoming the jokes no one laughing about...
Giving Gold to G series when removing such rare feature in P&S class as articulating screen? And dumping one control wheel too? And Canon doing this to G second time in series history?!
Huh... I wish you dump that "award" and per cent ratings altogether, before you got drowned in readers' frustration.
No, it is not.Ultimate gauge for any tool is what you can do and how effective you're with it. Have you tried to shot unique moment overhead with fixed screen? I will give up all that quality for ability to actually see what's on the screen.
Antony John: Well I suppose that the RX100 is a 'camera on steroids' so it had its' Gold Award stripped.It's also obvious that the actual scoring has little to do with the awarding of 'medals' and is only a subjective judgement by the tester.As most cameras these days are producing excellent images one can choose one that fits one's pocket and one's needs.Forget the ratings, they're meaningless.
It's a bit more than just sensor size and ISO performance to make a great camera.. But Sony made a good push which will move other manufacturers trends.

rfsIII: I'm one of the people who have problems with Lightroom 4 being incredibly S-L-O-W despite trying everything Adobe suggests to speed it up. For those lucky few of you who aren't suffering from the slowness problem, please loan me some of your mojo as I try the new version.
TIME: 1-in. (2.5 cm) sensor
Sorry, but people who don't realize that 1" sensor is not equal to 2.5 cm in ANY dimension have no say about cameras at all!
Good thing - leopard seal probably thought that it was swimming with some oddly shaped black seal :)Bad thing - sharks think in same way too..
tarnumf: Fire that designer and hire one with healthy eyes, so he or she won't use 100% contrast on text/background.
Old forum had better space vs. information ratio.
On my 30 inch display, the whole DPR site looks miserably squeezed into 1/3 of screen width.
And have I mentioned that 100% contrast is not easy on eyes? Ewww!
I know, but I was hoping it will change at least for forums..
Fire that designer and hire one with healthy eyes, so he or she won't use 100% contrast on text/background.
