On Samsung NX1 First Impressions Review preview (931 comments in total)

Looks impressive. I am not changing either of my systems...(MFT & FF), I am just too deeply invested in lenses, etc.... ...but I have to give Samsung a "A" for effort and improvement!!!

Very very attractive improvements...Sony is getting there. Not enough for me to change systems...but they are getting there....slowly but surely.

On Sony announces US pricing for full-frame Alpha 7 II article (177 comments in total)

I REALLY like the idea of the camera. The sensor, the 5-Axis etc. It's still the lack of dedicated AF lenses that stops me. It is priced really well too.
Makes me crazy!!!! LOL!
Could the Sony A7 II please mate with my Canon 5DIII and make a Love Child that we all want so bad. LOL.

With those gold accents this camera will definitely be a popular item in pawn shops in the near future!

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2709 comments in total)

Its a yawn-fest....just buy a 6D...this is an embarrassing upgrade after all of this time with what is on the market now.
I guess when you are competing with phones, you don't have to do much. :-)

goshigoo: IBIS is "unknown"?
Anyone can confirm

Doubtful...it is soooooo small...we have to accept that this is a bare bones camera with all that you need and nothing that you don't. It's quite amazing even without IBIS...you have to admit!!!!!

On Hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 article (310 comments in total)

OK..so I was non-+'ed buy the rumors leading up to Photokina...was not really interested in any new MFT camera without new sensor...and I am totally a Oly-Boy (stills only...so that works)....but I have to say that the GM5 with the Leica 15mm is an intriguing little piece of kit....and I do mean little...hmmm... I am in USA and it will only be offered as a kit in Europe (no surprise..they just "get it" more than USA when it comes to creating art....
I will have to look into purchase opportunities...perhaps in Hong Kong...

Gesture: Wished they had gone one step further and had a small LCD display where you go review the images and folders.

I have had a Hyperdrive for a couple of years and I really like it.

The viewing experience is pretty rudimentary...If the LCD was better it would be a much better device.

the passport just doesn't make it for me (although it is really inexpensive) because it doesn't take CF cards.

But it is a measly f/2.8 and I have no need to refinance my house to buy it...

On Travel tripods: 5 carbon fiber kits reviewed article (85 comments in total)
In reply to:

djohnfot: I have a very similar Velbon that seems to do everything these do yet it cost only 1/2 that of the lowest price reviewed model. The only significant difference is that the Velbon is mostly aluminum. Is it worth double price for carbon fiber?

You just don't understand sarcastic humor. Too bad.

On Travel tripods: 5 carbon fiber kits reviewed article (85 comments in total)
In reply to:

ManuelVilardeMacedo: I don't know how anyone could buy a tripod called '3 Leeged Thing Eddie'. Come on, it's ludicrous! If I had one of those, I'd never even mention I had a tripod to my friends. I'd be the laughing stock of the group.
I have a Triopo carbon fibre tripod (OK, I admit it isn't a very serious name either...) that is a clone of the Sirui, save for having only one neoprene grip. I suspect there's a lot of OEM going on here, as the spiders of all tripods (bar the Gitzo) look very much alike. This is not a bad thing, as carbon fibre tripods have become quite affordable while retaining the properties of this material.
I find, however, that the weight advantage evaporates somewhat when the head is mounted. Ball heads can be quite heavy, though they're very practical.

yeah..but then...who would wear a hat like you have in your avatar.
Talk about laughing stock!!!! LOL!
That is the two-headed George thing??!!??!!
(Wait..wasn't that a "leave-behind?") :-)

I own the Gitzo which I use for my MFT kit and I own the older Feisol without the locking legs which I use for my FF kit.
I immediately ditched the included ball heads (too basic) and got reasonably-priced but far superior PhotoClam ball heads and set up all my cameras with Markins Arca Swiss plates. It' stone only way to go! (Arca plates that is) These tripods are all I ever need except the occasional Feisol CF monopod. I only go up to 70-200mm w/1.4x on my FF Kit so the Feisol is just great for my needs.. and the best part is the incredible height that this comfortable, light, decently sturdy tripod it goes to from such a small, small package.
I am considering selling my Feisol legs so that I can score on the newer locking leg model.
Great stuff for the price paid.

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2307 comments in total)

I am not going to say anything about this camera (tee hee), except...Olympus or Panasonic REALLY could have taken a design cue on the Optional VF. REALLY!
No design went into theirs and I think made a little function-follows-form exception...it would have made for a much sweeter looking appendage. Now I am not saying that the Leica VF is all-that...but it shows what a little effort can result in. :-)
