G3User: The demise of photography continues. Another toy camera from Sony. No view finder and a screen for selfie's. Smile detector. What a joke. May as well use a cell phone.
Do you really think everyone needs a viewfinder to take a picture? Old people are so stuck in their ways.
Lee Jay: 24-150 would be better for me, and I'd give up speed on the long end to get it.
I'll alert the media!
Sure, I'll just ask my elderly mother for her IP address to set it up.
Leica used to be that you paid the most for the best. Now you pay the most for the worst.
Impulses: Wish they'd add a touchscreen! Would solve some of the UI issues. It's so nice for setting up an AF point or even shooting all in one tap...
Seems like Sony has abandoned the touch screen.
'if it's a dslr shaped thing you need'....
Well that pretty much sums up the marketing.
ThePhilips: Why there are no TCs for mirrorless, which go between the camera and the lens? Only the ones to screw on the lens?
Ben, reading comprehension....boy.
steelhead3: Good thing that US gov't consumer protection agency was on top of it.
bobbarber: I'm concerned about the camera owners, but more concerned about the people who have to work manufacturing this stuff. Wouldn't they have come into contact with the compound in question in a liquid state, and not once, but over a prolonged period of time?
That's allot of concern to go around!
Artpt: In response, up and coming photo journalists give NYT photo editor a beard trimmer....and some tips on effective hair conditioning products..
I am sorry...that was a cheap shot...please feel free to post your disgust...
Harmless humor intended of course...
His look is how I picture most DPR forum members. Do you have to repel women to be a good photojournalist?
Retzius: Oh yeah.. Well, Nikon made a new camera that looks like an old camera only it doesn't really work that well and it doesn't include video because its for real photographers who work slowly... Take that Sony!
Still waiting for my next lcd flat screen tv to come with a wood cabinet around it and the Iphone 6 to have an external antenna. Nothing like cutting edge technology without cutting edge design.
Photomonkey: The new A7s will be the darling/demon of the moment....until the next shiny thing comes along.
You really just typed that on a gear site?
You have a marvelous grasp of the obvious. We all eagerly await your next thought.
samhain: Glad Pentax/Ricoh are focused on important releases like limited edition 1/1.7" sensor camera kits & purses, rather than wasting time on gimmicky products like FF cameras, fast lenses, and other tools for professionals...
Do u think they have like 3 employees?
DO websites absolutely have to do April fools stuff every year?
Alexis D: People need to realize that this is a take anywhere travelzooom and so a small size is more important than a big sensor.
A 5-axis IBIS that works with 60p video is nice.
If a nex 7 fits in your pocket, we need to discuss your fashion sense. And just because that setup works for your travel doesn't mean it does for anyone else.
peevee1: 2 years ago Olympus made a bold step of releasing TG-1 with 1.5-2 stops better lens than the competitors. 2 years later, with only small updates, it (now TG-3) stays the best in the category.What a sad state of affairs when competitors cannot leapfrog the leader, as it used to be. Brand new Nikon AW120 is still a stop behind...
Do you need a pocketable camera underwater? My wetsuit doesn't have pockets.
Why can't they just give an equivalent zoom range instead of saying 24x zoom, or whatever? That marketing drives me insane.
Baxter Bad: An extra $50 for the ZS40 nets you 24-720mm, raw, evf, 920k lcd, gps and an all-black color option (as well as panda).
But can Panasonic's OIS keep up with 5-axis Jesus? I don't know, but I have hundreds of sharp photos taken handheld at 1200mm equivalent with my $279 FZ70 that tell me I don't care.
Leno, what does a 5 way, the camera or the girlfriend?
All of you people whining about it being for US residents only, how many of you would actually apply? 2%? You are all the same people that said the theta was a stupid camera anyway when it was announced. Most of you just like to b!tch about something, anything.
My God, if you read the comment section of EVERY SINGLE NEWS TOPIC IN DPR, it is nothing but whining, complaining. I cant' even imagine what you people must be like in the real world. Has anyone ever seen a single DPR news topic comment section that wasn't just one complaint after the next on the topic? Ever, once? And yes, I am now complaining about the complainers, because you people drive me to this insanity.
whawha: ..and it is, of course, a "residents of the US" only competition. Very silly and surprisingly narrow minded marketing from Ricoh.
OMG you clicked on the link for two whole seconds before finding out it wasn't for every person on planet earth? How will you ever get the time back?
