    "there is a large part of the clmate scientist pool who dont have a opinion (so are not global warming expert" "No opinion" can mean either "I don't know because this is not my field" or "I don't ...
  • But I'm not a climatologist, so I checked something that I could - without getting a degree in the field. (Also, don't forget the OP premise - that the oh-so-useful website lists all these ...
  • The climatologists' responses are not split into "don't know because it's not my subfield" and "don't know because the numbers are inconclusive." There's got to be some of each. Also, the response ...
  • Here's one example of the quality of their "debunking", easy to understand to somebody not fluent in differential equations. They say, "97% of climate experts agree humans are causing global ...
  • Imaging-resource says it's f/3.9 - f/4.9. Consistently slow throughout the entire zoom range. But hey, who needs aperture when you have Wi-Fi? :-)

  • Replied in TG3 drops 7m!
    If there's no visible damage, it's probably fine. You could send it to Olympus, but I doubt they have a way to check it for watertightness. And if they find that it isn't watertight, I the repair ...

    Um, what? People use large files when they need high quality enlargements. Of course they'll examine the files at 100% before printing!

    Why not? A 24MP it's nothing to write home about, while 40MP is newsworthy. Besides, the sensor-shifting tech lets you select the resolution you need, even in RAW - meaning, if you only need 16MP, ...

    Olympus doesn't make sensors. The effort they put into developing the moving sensor tech does not affect sensor development by Sony. Oh, and about the tripod: If you're trying to take a sharp 40MP ...
  • Actually, there are solid reasons why we could see very meaningful improvements - things like a faster lens, larger sensor, longer zoom, etc. First off, the market for the compact point and shoot ...
  • I'm afraid ijpeg is about as easy to replace as the QWERTY keyboard layout (which, if I recall correctly, was designed primarily to reduce the jamming of the mechanical typewriters).

  • "That shouldn't be a problem nowadays, shouldn't it?"

    Just as much of a problem now as it was then. Sure, the camera CPUs are faster, but the files are larger.

    I wouldn't mind an ability to fit...

  • Very nice shot! I never noticed, until somebody pointed it out to me, that the secondary rainbow's colors are in reversed order.
  • I think my TG-1 gives the warning whenever one of the underwater modes is enabled. Pretty sure it doesn't have a sensor that would tell the camera that the seal is compromised. Just ignore the ...
  • The biggest technical problem with jpeg2000 was that it took a lot more CPU cycles to generate than to view.

  • 14 bit means16,384 levels of grey. Should be enough for casual use.

  • Salespeople don't exactly have a direct line to Olympus headquarters, so it's all just rumors. I'd say, 40% chance it's a temporary shortage (new stock is on the way), 30% chance of a planning ...
  • It's been out of stick in Bhphoto, Adorana, Amazon, and Getolympus for a while. But yesterday Amazon had it in stock again, so maybe it was just a temporary outage.
  • Yes, TG-3 has been scarce for a while (over a month, I think).  There was a rumor that Olympus massively underestimated demand, and another rumor that Olympus is scaling down compact camera ...
  • Ah, I see.  Thank you for the clarification! Right.  I thought you meant better low-light performance than what you already have, which would've meant meant fast primes, like (for example) the ...
