roy5051: That's a bit quick for an update, isn't it? It's only been a few months since iPad3.

It seems clear to me that they plan to revise all the iPads at the same time in the future. So it would not make sense to introduce a Mini version of an iPad that does not exist. And how unhappy would those owners of the third version be if some of the features of the bargain basement version were better than their 6 month old iPad?

This is wonderful. Thanks. A lot of us with NEX-7 models have been looking forward to a new lens or two for some time. Considering how cranky the 24 MP sensor is with some lenses do you think it would be possible to also make some samples with these lenses and the NEX 7? Many of us have lusting after a 16-50 which will fulfill the compact promise of the NEX.

dpreviewblog: Next strange Adobe's decision around DNG... BTW... Why I never shoot in DNG-format and d't use this format as archival for images - http://www.libraw.org/articles/2-ways-to-nowhere.html

re: 2 ways to nowhere
Never trust any article outside of a theoretical physics text that uses the term entropy, or "armature" when amateur is meant. The first is used to put you in your place and the second just shows sloppiness. Seriously, there is nothing to be learned from someone who uses "put down" rather than explanations when questions are asked.

On Petanque in the Sports played on Courts challenge (3 comments in total)

Love the shot. Also love the bunion trees.

They look to me like a big ego taking revenge against a client who has already deposited the money. "I am so good, they will think they are art and I will be laughing. Ef the Olympics." Hopefully he will regret it in his old age.

On Sony DSC-RX100 preview (544 comments in total)

Almost perfect. If it had an EVF I would have sold my NEX7. I never understand why companies don't learn. All the people trading in their 5s and 5Ns for 7s are not just after a few more megapixels. It is the built-in viewfinder. A small fraction of an inch wider to accommodate one would not have made it less pocketable.

Thanks for another great preview.

On L1013612 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (6 comments in total)

Looks sepia to me. Not many browsers are capable of rendering sRGB correctly. Safari can. You might also have a cool toned display.

On Leica M-Monochrom preview (449 comments in total)

Brilliant. Something many photographers have wanted for a long time, but something the market dominating makers which spew out copies of each others equipment have been unwilling to offer. Nice to see a manufacturer thinking about their customers and not just a consumer after more features.

On User Guide: Getting the most out of the Olympus E-M5 article (262 comments in total)

Wow. What a good idea. You guys develop all that experience with the cameras and sharing it is awesome. There was a little of that in the NEX-7 review with the settings. Maybe more?

Interesting. It looks as though Nikon has decided to separate itself from the pack of mirrorless cameras nipping at its heels by increasing resolution to a point they cannot match and still be useable. It does make one wonder where they will go from 24 MP in DX. Is this the end of the line for DX?

On Scuba in the Over & Under challenge (11 comments in total)

I normally love this type of water shot which shows details below the surface as well as above. Pretty image, but I am disturbed by enlarged scale below the surface. The diver and ladder are much to large in comparison to the man and ladder on the boat. I am disturbed by backlit and cloudy above the surface and sun bright and from another direction below the surface. I am disturbed that the ladder above and below the water are at severely different angles. Seems to me if you are going to Photoshop something like this, it should at least look real.

On Japanese news service lends support Olympus OM rumors news story (314 comments in total)

After switching to Nikon because there was no Oly digital product two years after its announcement, I had occasion to go back and use my beloved OM4T again and could not believe how flimsy and crude it felt after using the D100 for a while. As for a new camera lines from Olympus, well, been there, done that. It is just a parade of discontinued equipment with no respect for customers shown by providing a transition. OM gone with no development for years except raising the price and the company saying the lenses will not work with digital. E series gone. PEN development lagging way behind Panasonic. Corrupt corporate officers looting millions from the company and treating the whistle blower badly. Want to bet it will have a new mount and none of your lenses will work?

On First Impressions: Using the Nikon V1 article (131 comments in total)

Really nice first impression, Mr. Britton. It really answered a lot of questions I had about using the camera. I am even more puzzled about some of Nikon's design decisions, but I hope the camera is a smashing sales success. With professional DSLRs shut down at Sendai from the tsunami and all the rest shut down in Thailand because of the flood, this little Chinese built camera is the only game in town for Nikon for some months to come.

On How the iPhone changed my photography article (105 comments in total)

I think those who think that a camera phone is just like a point and shoot are missing the point. It is the integration in the phone that is missing in the point and shoot. And to repeat Barney's point, "It is always with you." So, take your picture, process and filter it with an app, send it off in email, text message, photo site.

I have read about four of these articles and I like this one the best. What they have all had in common is the nasty comments by people who want the article to be something other than what it is or by the competitive people like to denigrate the work of others. The nastiness of people is disheartening and even worse than on the forums.

My thanks to Amazon and dpreview for the article and the charmingly different pix used as illustrations.

My only suggestion is to put the comments on another page. It is too easy to scroll down and get a bad taste in your mouth and a click over is more easily ignored.

I bought a Martin Evening book before he included a video tutorial on the recommendation of Reichmann over at Luminous Landscape. Dense, difficult to understand, pages and pages of tool lists and assumption of prior knowledge on the part of the reader. Went into the trash. Certainly would not pass it on to a friend. My puzzle at the time was trying to understand a contrast mask. Book browsing taught a lot. Kelby was the only one of the main Photoshop writers to explain and show how to do it. The others advised using it in certain situations, but assumed you already knew how to do and did not explain it. I have been a Kelby book fan ever since.
