On Hands on with the Pentax 645Z news story (484 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ian Worthington: Will people please stop moaning that the sensor is not 6x4.5? The sensor is what it is. If you want a larger one go spend the extra money on something else.

For me this makes an interesting alternative to a 5D3 at about twice the price, though it clearly can't share my existing lenses, for the same reason I don't always want to shoot with my 7D: low light iso noise and resolution.

The proof of the pudding is going to be in the lens options and their quality though.

@s mcintosh sure but 645 refers to 6x4.5 cm which it is not.

It's more the misleading naming format, not that it's a smaller sensor size.

I see tonnes of people walking around with mirrorless and DSLR's these days. I wasn't old enough to notice this sort of thing in the 80's or even 90's. But I'm still kind of surprised that targets weren't met.

On Fujifilm X-T1 First Impressions Review preview (1657 comments in total)

Looks and sounds lovely. There are a lot of these X series cameras though and somehow I get the feeling Fuji isn't quite done yet.

Who cares what kind of images it produces. Nice looking camera, that's all that matters.

NickR: $16 a roll?
150 rolls or a $2400 DSLR, which would you rather have?

Plus the initial cost of the film.

On Adobe releases Photoshop Lightroom 5 news story (281 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mike Sivcevic: Adobe is screwing Australian customers yet again. LR5 costs $149 on the US site and $186 on Australian site. Same product, same server, same credit card gateway, 25% difference.

They've constantly been screwing us up, most notably with the CS6 that is about twice the price here comparing to the US pricing. It is cheaper to board the plane, fly from Australia to USA, buy a boxed copy in store and fly back.

Greedy corporate morons!

Australians get ripped off because they are prepared to pay more (because wages and salaries are generally higher). It's all about demand, not the cost of shipping the product or exchange rates etc. The proof is when you purchase digital content online where there are no transportation fees yet the Australian price is much higher.

To me it's simple really. Once you come to terms with the fact that a camera interprets light, rather than accurately representing it perfectly, you'll be liberated from so many restraints.
