On Is Sony making a sensor/lens combo for smartphones? post (110 comments in total)

While a nice improvement to the photo taking abilities of a smartphone, it will suffer the same problem Mirrorless System Cameras, Point-And-Shoot, and DSLRs currently have.

No one will bother taking these add-ons with them, all the time.

Smartphones enjoy being "always handy" and "always close at hand". That is a HUGE part of their popularity and the reason why they are used to take more & more photos.

I Use and Love the Android OS... on Smartphones, Tablets, and possibly PCs. But I wouldn't want it on a CAMERA.

The reason Android along with the iPhone & Windows 8 Smartphones have become so popular to take pictures with is that they are ALWAYS WITH PEOPLE and HANDY.

This NX device might appeal to Point & Shoot users, who are also Smartphone owners, who are looking for something slightly more capable for pictures & video but don't want to learn a new or complex menu and operating system.

While I'm sure this thing will sell; I really hope it doesn't signal things to come.

On Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH OIS preview (181 comments in total)

I think I'll be picking up this lens to go with my upcoming Olympus OM-D EM-5.

I think this lens and that camera will make a very nice travel camera setup.

I also don't think the Panasonic GH2 should be grouped with the Nikons and Pentax Q.

If anything, the Nikons should be grouped with the BEGINNERS' cameras.

It looks okay except...

- No IBIS (like the E-P3 has)
- No Tiltable LCD (like the NEX-5N & 7 have)
- No Built-In EVF (like the NEX-7 has)

What I'm hoping for is an E-P4 with an improved sensor over the E-P3, Tiltable LCD, and built-in EVF. Or even better, a Sony NEX-6N with all the features of the NEX-7 and the sensor of the NEX-5N.

On Nikon 1 System First Impressions article (255 comments in total)

Nikon limited the potential and performance of these cameras as to not errode their DSLR lines along with all those lenses.

For me, I find the NEX-7 far more interesting and will probably purchase one of those.

In reply to:

Nelson Tan: What's the sensor size?

Where to begin...

Smaller Sensor than the Sony NEX-7
No Hotshoe like the NEX-7
No Titlable LCD like the NEX-7
Much lower resolution than the NEX-7 (10.1Mp vs 24.3)

I am not at all impressed but will wait to see actual photo and video samples.

On 3D Video Primer, Part 1 article (31 comments in total)

I felt this FIRST PART served its purpose. It gave an initial overview of past and current 3D technology from a limited perspective.

I look forward to the next parts that will no doubt, provide additonal and more detailed information.

On Preview:olympusep3 (155 comments in total)

WOW.

I now know what my next camera will be!!

The only thing missing would be a tilt screen (not a big deal with the VF2 available).
