Alec: Since when spy satellites don't count as digital cameras in space?

Early signals from satellites and space probes (eg voyager1 and 2) my have been TV signals not digital

On Never lose your lens cap again with HACkxTACK article (165 comments in total)

Attractive design but for about $3 on eBay I bought a pack of 10 lens cap savers which are nothing more than self-adhesive buttons attached to an elastic band. It would cost me $70 to save the same number of lens caps with the HxT.
Then again it might appeal to some who value style over just practicality. Nothing wrong with that if you have the money.

In reply to:

Ian J G: Just in terms of materials I wonder how much it would cost to print something like that?
I mean when you already have the design.

This seems to be a "proof of principle" experiment....
Question: Can we make a film camera with a 3D printer.
Answer: Yes.

No other factors like cost effectiveness have been taken into account.

Nice. Looking forward to its return.

On Photo contest: Enter for a chance to win $5,000 article (130 comments in total)

The deadline is listed as 11:59:59pm PT.
What's PT -which country? DPReview has an international audience, wouldn't it be easier to list at deadline time in GMT?

tkpenalty: Love all the spec-sheet warriors here, because totally, having a max sensitivity of ISO1600 means that the camera is worse than a D800.

Okay sure, it is very expensive and maybe a bit overpriced. But seriously? Comparing it to a D800?

Agree with tkpenalty
If megapixels and apparent max iso is all people are worried about then the nokia purview might be the camera/phone they want.
This Leica might have a riduculously high price but they are aiming for a niche professional market. Leica wouldn't be making many of them so they would be limited in how low they can sell them for to recover costs and make a profit.
