On Budget M43: Kodak Pixpro S-1 First Impressions Review article (137 comments in total)
In reply to:

fatdeeman: Apparently it's going to cost $499.

Moving on...

"Regularly $499, now on sale for $299".

It is going to be "on sale" every day at $299.

The only way this thing flies is with very aggressive pricing.

In reply to:

ntsan: I guess Pana and Olympus is giving the low end market to Kodak since Panasonic is going to discontinue G/GF series and the only Oly camera coming this year is E-PL7 (no E-PM3).

There are serious questions about what remains of the low-end market. The i-phone is killing (killed) Point and Shoot and the low-end market for interchangeable lens cameras is next. There have been some nice offerings such as the Olympus Stylus and others offering a decent camera with a built in lens. This seems to be the competition for this camera.

If I decide to upgrade my i-phone, what next? I don't know if this camera is the answer. It is a question of where the price settles and it has a ways to go.

"Pricing is still to be confirmed, but should be very competitive with similarly-specified entry-level mirrorless cameras. "

The price has to be cheap, very cheap, for this to work. Close in terms of price with panny or oly won't make this viable. It needs to compete with disposible cameras.

On National Park Service bans drones in Yosemite article (170 comments in total)
In reply to:

demunseed: I am the drone pilot that shot one of the first Drone videos over Yosemite. (on YouTube at "DEMUNSEED"). While I sympathize with those that do not want a "drone" (UAV) flying over their heads while they're communing with nature, the National Parks need to set aside 3-4 days per year for videographers like myself to come out and create "our art" with drones. I create these "aerial tour" videos to show an entirely different perspective of our National Parks and also for those that might not ever get to visit the Park. I'm an artist, and my drone is my "paintbrush". Please allow me to create MY art. Jimbowers@foothill.net

No, thank you.

FoolyCooly: Great! Now if we can only ban old farts with tripods next! Photographers are ruining the peaceful atmosphere of the park with their bags of gear and loud shutter clicks.

Cameras are passe'. Everyone uses an I-Pad now.

I would like to ban the jets from Yosemite airspace. Contrails always seem to appear in my photos of Yosemite.

In reply to:

Craig from Nevada: A step in the right direction.

The Yosemite Valley is one of the most overused pieces of national park in the US. They should ban automobiles and tour busses from the valley as the next step.

If you want an aerial view, go hike to Cloud's Rest or North Dome.

Yup. Particularly, in August.

In reply to:

Paul JM: Great pity. I am sure that some outstanding photographic and video opportunities will now be lost for ever.
I dont at all buy this business of 'its a wilderness..' If that is the case, then why not just ban anyone from going there at all, and risking leaving rubbish, interfering with wild life etc. It is really just a matter of where you draw the line, so I dont think that people want to be too judgemental about where that line is drawn. There are plenty of people who are prepared and committed to the responsible use of unmanned copters etc for aerial photography.
It seems to me rather odd to ban the use of drones in Yosemite, but to allow firearms !

LOL. "A handful of responsibly controlled drones"? Been to Yosemite, Paul? In the Yosemite Valley, nothing is done by the handful. Typically, it is done by the car and motorcoach filled to capacity. As for responsible, there is a shortage of that.

In reply to:

Marty4650: The new Olympus marketing strategy is now clear.

They are moving to the high end of each market segment. OM-Ds rather than Pens.... Stylus cameras rather than cheap P&S models. They are doing exactly what they need to do to survive in a mass market that is being eaten alive by smart phones.

I think they are making good chioices.

Now all they have to do is stop losing money.

On Pentax K-3 preview (961 comments in total)
In reply to:

Craig from Nevada: "As we're working towards finishing our full in-depth review of Ricoh's Pentax K-3, we've decided to publish pages of the review that are complete so far instead of making you wait."

The public has waited 6 months.

This is just throwing a something out there in an attempt to rescue DPReview's credibility rather that an honest effort to review a fine camera for the public to consider (read other reviews).

Don't send partial drafts out.

The pinhole will be reviewed next month, in one page installments. The serialization of review marches forward!

The camera is downright attractive compare to some of the most recent Hasselblad efforts and priced in the same range.

JohnEwing: Aye, but what's in the envelope and where do you push it?

There won't be a mirror in the envelop.

The IBIS is awesome.

The glass is next challenge in terms of managing the size and quality tradeoff for the zoom lenses.

On Olympus OM-D E-M10 First Impressions Review preview (618 comments in total)
In reply to:

tjbates: Whichever way I look at it - the E-M10 looks like a marketing mistake in favour of the consumer. That doesn't happen very often.
The E-M10 is marketed as an entry level OM series camera - however on paper and I'm sure in reality - this camera looks to perform (purely in terms of image quality) as well as the E-M1. That's pretty special for a camera about half the price of it's bigger brother.

Olympus needs to make more marketing mistakes like this.
