Lukino: This would be really cool for a wedding photographer! Moving lights around without having to shout to a bored faced assistant must be a dream of some guys I know.

Yeah I forgot the noise! 2x cool! Also notice I'm not pretending to be a pro photographer, you can tell it because there is no trace of the word "photo" in my name.

On Ricoh announces Pentax XG-1 superzoom article (194 comments in total)
In reply to:

forpetessake: After the detailed article about the lens equivalence one could expect DPR would stop writing "24-1248mm equivalent F2.8-5.6 zoom lens", but here we go again. I guess the advertising dollars are more important than truth.

I wonder what Freud would tell of all this measure comparing...

In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: This is not SLR-Like. It does not have a mirror, it is not an interchangeable lens camera, it does not have a large sensor, it does not have good ISO performance.

This is simply a super zoom fixed lens camera.

isn't pointing how pointless is a comment to a pointless post kind of pointless... HO GOD NO I DID IT KILL ME!!!

EssexAsh: were they Leica specific rubber bands? £20 each?

They are just rebadged Sony rubber bands so will work on APS too

In reply to:

Jogger: - $50 worth of commodity electronics
- $50 for the firmware
- $100 for the machined aluminium body (which is very cool)
- $1600 for the Leica badge

because obviously, Jogger, developing a camera mount, on board electronic and software, lenses, testing, set up a prodution line, marketing, all rains for free down from the sky.

Jonathan371: I was so looking forward to receiving my petzval lens. As a wedding photographer I rely on a speed lens (50mm f/1.0) for beautiful shallow depth of field portraits. I was hoping the Petzval lens would fill a similar use in the 80mm range. I was dead wrong. After using the lens for about a month I can say it is the biggest piece of junk gear I ever owned. Lousy unflattering results.

I don't know how to say it without sounding offending...

SirSeth: My dream is that someone with brute force, like Amazon or Google will make a smart phone that allows a true choice against expensive cell carrier data allowing me to dispense with redundant mandatory data purchasing (I live in Wifi). I will buy that phone. True freedom = choice to not be force to pay for services I don't want. Let me choose my own network.

Just buy an unlocked phone and do everything you want with it. If you buy a phone at a cheaper price because it comes with a plan, then don't whine about having to pay the plan!

Sirandar: Interesting .... but no microSD and a 100$ whallop for 64GB

I am well and truly sick of Android and all it's battery mayhem. It seems Android has become a buggy mess. If FireOS was written from the ground up to actually manage your privacy and battery life this phone may actually survive.

Android seems totally incapable of preventing apps from constantly waking up phone even when it is locked in your pocket. Better Battery Stats helps but often doesn't because Android isn't really set up to identify what is actually waking your phone = deleted wakelocks and wakelocks you can't control

Once a month I am troubleshooting because my phone can't make it through the day in my pocket unused because of some update, issue or other. I don't even load new apps anymore because it is just too much trouble. Sometimes it is Google apps at fault, the Play Store for one. Try forgetting to manually kill that task and see what happens.

This does not happen on Iphone either.

BaldCol: I went on a photography 'workshop' last year with 4 other photographers and a pro.

3 of us had SLRs, tripods and the usual bag of kit. One had a Leica camera and a Channel handbag for her trip into the Sussex countryside! Tells me all I need to know about Leica users.

I'd love to see the pictures from this workshop.

Boy it'll have 1000 scratches all over it.

I doubt this, untreated aluminium oxidizes quickly, salty hand sweat would dig a hole in that premium case!

It is mirror polished (by hand) and then anodized.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2294 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tripeiro: I am sure the target market for this camera dosen`t have a clue about what optical or software correction is...

skeen, don't take it so personal, Tripeiro comment was both ironic, and right. True, many serious photographer will buy a T. I'd buy it too if I could afford one, is both sexy and a serious tool. Yet the market that Leica will make the most income from, is probably as vanity buy from rich feticists. What do you think 45 minutes of hand polishing would be for? But this does not subtract anything to the camera or the to the buyer, is a common thing for luxury objects. Take diver watches, they may be techically perfect, precise, able to resist to the deepest of the ocean... yet way less than 1% of sold divers waches are actually used to "dive".

On A travel-sized large-format 4x5 camera? article (218 comments in total)

There is no lens, or film holder, or a shutter, or a "real" viewfinder (good luck using a open finder for wide angle).
So you basically pay 150$ for a plastic cone?

On CP+ 2014: Hands-on with Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II article (200 comments in total)
In reply to:

kinglau711: It's a shame, 3 posts and no value added information.

What's the point of doing a hands-on ?

Hope you will do better next time.

Regards

Added information is, if you want to buy this camera plus accessory viewfinder, now you know your setup will be too ugly to be used near any light source. Maybe Canon did this so you're encouraged to test the sensor in low light...
