Black Box: My grampa was a vynil records collector for 5 decades. His collection comprised thousands of records and was worth A LOT of money. But when the CD arrived, he bought a CD player and loved the crunch-free sound. When MP3 and AC3 arrived, he embraced those as well.

For a long time, I thought that the only people who cling to an old technology are those who are simply too lazy to learn or too dead to want to. But recently I realized something.

30 years ago creative photography was an exclusive art accessible only by those "chosen" who had The Equipment. They were the elite that could do "magic". Then digital photography arrived and all of a sudden the magic was in everyone's hands!

The dethrowning was painful. And THIS is the manifestation of that pain. Both for Kodak and for the photographer.

I'm sorry for your loss.

@ Black Box: "only people who measure...thousands...etc.". Whaaat?! My Rega RP1 was about 200 EUR, the phono stage (M1 from MF) about 900 USD, and the amplif (Yamaha S-500) plus speakers (Monitor Audio BX-2) about 950 USD. The Goldring 1042 was 250 EUR. So, roughly, 2000 EUR. Now, compare this with my 5DIII+24-70 II+70-200 f/2.8 II (to give a smple of digital photo equipment). In my opinion, you should reconsider that "only" part. Yes, I will buy something better in the future, but right now I am quite satisfied with this (and btw I also have a BDP9700 for the blu ray audio part, so I can compare the DTS Master HD sound).

Hi there, there is an interesting part, however: audiophiles are using vinyl, and the turntables just got better than ever... You simply cannot "copy" that sound, I can tell you. The same for film: I use both 5DIII/7D, but I have saved precious family moments using an EOS 3, a Voigtlander and a Pentax MZ (in 2014!!!), so... Keep Walking! :)

Oh, just woke up. Oh, this unpleasant hangover: Thor is always right. And this, and his/her post, it is not related with alcoholism. There are other (significant) pathologies out there, you know... And, yes - Cheers! :) P. S.: Cheers again!

Pro-Sony separatists should organize a referendum. And separate from the outdated Canon tech. Forever. And ever. Cheers! :) :) :)

Dpreview is not TIPA. And Sony is not Canon. And Apple is not Samsung. People still buy Apple. Lovely. Cheers! :)

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (451 comments in total)
In reply to:

GaryJP: About two years ago, these comment pages and forums were full of people saying the G 1 X had issues, that it would not be popular, it would not sell well, the price would drop "any day now", it would be an evolutionary dead end, and Canon would not make a Mk II.

Well, wrong on all counts, and in my town if you don't get to stores within half an hour of delivery the camera is sold out.

Now the critics may start pontificating that there will never be a G1 X Mk III, and the Mk II won't sell, and will soon drop its price.

Genau! Looks good. Cheers! :)

His job is not to make (some of) dpreview readers happy... There are, however, some interesting "clues" regarding the vision. My take. Cheers! :)
