On Walmart sues photographer's widow over family pictures article (200 comments in total)

sorinx: A lot of people praise Walton for making the money due to hard work. But this is a lie.
The rich make the money by stealing. And the methods for stealing are very simple:
- they decide the price of the goods and they decide the salaries. there is zero competition. everything is in the hands of few people. everything. just search for "10 corporations that own everything". just look at the picture. I live in a city with 5k software developers. There are 7 corporations that employ 4k of them. And they have an agreement on salaries and in "not taking people one from the other"
- loans. without loans, the land would cost 1/10 - 1/50 of its current price. the theft here is simple: when you loan for example 10k, the bank do not give you the money they have. THE BANK IS ALLOWED TO CREATE MONEY...

So, the bank gives you the money that they create from thin air. The amount of money in circulation increase with 10k. So the value of money gets lower. This is the real reason of inflation.
The bull**** that they are selling to you is that somebody put the money in the bank, and than the bank will lend that money to somebody else. This is just a lie.
- brainwashing.
-the system works even at international level. USA steals from a lot of countries.

And the worst thing is that our defenses are getting useless against them. Hitler new this, and forbid guns. But guns will be useless against a system with millions and millions of cameras, controlled interned, controlled food supply, controlled water supply, and against drones.

Looks like a real camera.

SleepyHammer: I don't care about the name. I just hope they make the firmware open source and hacker-friendly, maybe Android-based. I.e., just make the platform and let the community go nuts with the software. That would really differentiate them and make manufacturers with proprietary software run for cover or join the fun.

@Michael: You are confused! how many apps are there for Nikon and Canon?

Off topic:
As for Android vs iPhone: people make apps for a platform or another depending of how much they expect to sell. And no. of apps for Android is bigger than iPhone.

On CES 2013: Hands-on with Samsung NX300 article (150 comments in total)

Faster focusing. Tiltable screen. Touchscreen.
It just needs a good all-around lens. 16-70 F4, or something like that.

So, they finally recognized that this is just a toy.

It feels like a discussion between two Nikon sales agents.

On Leica announces V-Lux 4 superzoom with F2.8 lens article (29 comments in total)

Excellent way to take money from suckers.
I do not understand why car manufacturers do not do the same? What about a re-branded Fiat 500 with 100000USD price?

In reply to:

peevee1: The mirrorless field just got a lot more compatible, with NEX and NX filling the glaring holes in their lineups. m43 is still ahead with extra f/2.8 zooms and excellent tele primes still missing from other systems, but the prices for those are insane.

@ AV Janus:
You are completely wrong.

12-24 is equivalent to 18-36 F5.6-F8

The competition has:
M.Zuiko Digital ED 9-18mm f/4-5.6 lens which is equivalent
to 18-36 F8-F11; it is lighter (~150g) but also one stop slower.
and
Panasonic Lumix 7-14mm f/4 which is equivalent to 14-28 F8 at about the same weight.

For SLR you have for example
Sigma 12-24 F4-F5.6 at 670g

In reply to:

zodiacfml: This is everything I want but the sensor! The lens is huge. I'm sure it could accept a one inch sensor and compromise on maximum aperture or some vignetting wide open. I was hoping a larger sensor to compete against the Sony.

@tompabes2 : you really don't understand what aperture means. Oly has about the same aperture as RX100 at tele and much smaller at wide end.

Antonio Rojilla: Between the Sony EX100 (mainly for the sensor) and the Fuji XF1 (partly for the sensor, partly for the host of features and the nice design in a smaller package) this camera is DOA.

@NotTarts: Rx100 is about the same as Oly at tele (if you consider the sensor size) and it is much better at wide.
It is wrong to compare the apertures between different cameras without looking at sensor size. A bigger sensor will allow you to use higher ISO.
The "fast" m43 F2.8 lenses are only F4 compared to APSC and F5.6 compared to a full frame for both DOF and exposure time (remember: FF will have 4x better high ISO than a m43). The problem is that majority of people cannot understand this and they pay a lot of money for what is it in fact just a standard 50usd kit lens for SLRs.

puneetvikramsingh: ISO performance is one stop better than my Nikon D5100....

1 Stop is to be expected with a 2x size sensor. Not forget you get also 50% more pixels.

What is the difference in prince/size for 1 stop faster lens?

Direct link | Posted on Sep 15, 2012 at 05:25 UTC

All camera manufacturers are like sheep: 28-85mm F3.5 lens. Fuji did something different by changing aperture.
I am still waiting for 24-120 or even 24-170mm all around lens.

Useless camera. But knowing how the corporations work, I am sure that the person who pushed this camera got a promotion. And in 1-2 years when sales will show that this is a bad decision, he will be far away;

pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-q/194467-pentax-q-real-world-user-review.html

(thanks Heie2, I stole your thunder on the link, but it's too incredible not to share)
Try and tell me that the Q stinks...
Bravo to Pentax...that thing is incredible.
Now I just need to save up and get my K-30 to upgrade from my K-x and all is well in my world.
Haters hate...that's what they do...

Great link. It shows the limitation of the camera even for 0.3MP images. And this is 500+USD camera without lenses.

The photographer is good. Shame that he choose the wrong camera. he could have used any phone for this size/quality of photos; or he could have used a 1/7" sensor camera at half the price, for better pictures.

Direct link | Posted on Sep 11, 2012 at 15:56 UTC

So, we have a lens that is equivalent to about 100mm F2.4 for APSC sensors and 150mm F3.5 for a full frame sensor. And this is a premium lens with premium price?
And I don't need to hear that it is F1.8. Because even if for exposure time it is F1.8, it only covers 1/4 of FF image. So, it only gathers 1/4 of light that a FF lens is gathering.

HarrieD7000: I know this is harsh for the independent repair shops. But if special tools are needed for calibration, after repair, I only want my equipment repaired in a shop, that has that special tools. Repair is not only replacing defective parts. Bringing the camera or lens within the specs are essential to. I only want my camera and lenses in a repair shop, that is certified by Nikon.

It is a very bad decision from dpreview to not have a "dislike" button.

I hate people that know nothing about a subject but talk like they know everything.

Victor Melicson: I am a Nikon user and I pledge never to buy another Nikon product and to inform as many people as possible to boycot Nikon untill they reverse their decision. This is one more money grab scheme, they are trying to illegally protect local suppliers. The customer can very well decide on his own where to repair his camera and the free market will eliminate the bad shops.
There can be only one reaction to this and is to start a campaign against Nikon: send emails to all Nikon contact points and let them know how much you hate this decision and how much it will hurt Nikon if it tries to wage war against it's own customer base.

I have decided to buy new camera only if I really need it. A 5 years old camera can make a picture as good as new one.
Just use the money for few trips and you have more pictures than if you buy a new camera and stay at home.

It was not enough that we have complete Japanese monopoly in camera market, now they want to extend this.
