MPA1: Shame they could not get a second card slot in.

I wonder how people would react to an additional microSD slot. From my experience, they are not slower from SD cards at all and you could use it as a mirror exclusively. On the other hand, battery life would take another hit.

Jogger: Better to have an RX100/G7X type compact that you keep as you upgrade phones and such.

The lens extends, so you are not going to fool anyone.

JurijTurnsek: There is still room for A7 in Sony's line-up. Some people don't need IBIS and are happy with the low price and lower weight and bulk, excellent performance of the original A7. Maybe Sony will prolong its productions as it did with the RX100 series.

I was thinking in the lines of people who mostly shoot below 1/100 shutter speed and would be happy to purchase a used A7, now that a lot of them are going on the market.

dbenyakar: After all this great spec they are still using that really bad NP-FW50 battery? Its useless!!

I quite like their dedication to keep the battery the same - as battery density increases with the now increased pressure for electric cars with a longer range, the battery will be improved (in the same shelll) and still compatible with all their e-mount cameras (excluding the PRO video).

On GoPro announces Hero4 lineup article (111 comments in total)
In reply to:

maxnimo: I was just browsing the GoPro website and apparently all their cameras have a fixed super wide-angle lens. They don't even mention the focal length, nor do they give you a choice. They must think everyone wants, needs and loves super-distorted ultra wide angle views.

This probably explains why all GoPro videos look so terribly distorted.

"Eyes rolling in disbelief!"

Wide lenses are exactly what you need in a cam like this. But, if you are trying to use it as a "normal camera", you can easily change the FOV:

jnd: Doesn't look all that special, 60 MB/s and faster cards have been there for some time and I use one for raw video capture with Magic Lantern. I guess with the 4K stamp it will sell better although you can use fine exisiting non-4K cards.

I believe you are confusing minimum constant write speed of with the top possible write speed.

Price seems very reasonable for these specs. Kudos to Transcend, I shall remain a loyal customer.

In reply to:

JurijTurnsek: This interview read like a dream. All of the answers were straight to the point and very realistic (not some CEO vague crap). Since I'm a Sony NEX user, I'd really like them to take some notes.

Video features keep me with Sony.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4: a quick summary article (471 comments in total)

Seems that the rumours were greatly exaggerated and the $2000 rumoured price seems like a far off dream. It should be able to film 4K 60p to be relevant a year from now, 30p it is only the beginning (Sony camcorders already have 4K 60p).

In reply to:

photogeek: Sony better hurry up with their lens lineup. If Fujifilm cameras had an articulated screen I would have switched already. No articulated screen - no deal, though.

I was looking at Fuji before opting for Sony NEX, because I also need a lot of video-centric feature. But, damn, Fuji's lens line-up is looking extremely nice and let's not forget their commitment to firmware updates.

Seems like a good fit for octa copters.

I'm guessing no rebates will be necessary to push the sales of this gem.

On Samsung unveils Galaxy S4 Zoom camera/phone hybrid article (222 comments in total)
In reply to:

Lucafeb: S4 screen : 1080 x 1920 pixels, 5.0 inches. S4 zoon screen: 960x540-pixel 4.3 inches.
Samsung why did you sacrifice the part of the smartphone people will use the most ? Where do you think people will look at the crappy photos/videos they will take with "S4 zoom" ? At home on their pc or on their retina display mac pro/ipad or on the smartphone ?

if Samsung is thinking about convergence it shouldn't have sacrificed the screen

Battery life and cheaper components. This is a brand new market segment and it has a better change if the price is lower than the flagship. This is P&S, not a serious quality camera.

On Samsung unveils Galaxy S4 Zoom camera/phone hybrid article (222 comments in total)

Seems like something just up my alley. A little bit thick for my taste; however, considering the zoom range this is a given (and something future generations will easily improve on for easier marketing).

The first reviews suggest the image quality is lacking for a dedicated photo-phone, which is saddening (a proper price could mitigate this).

And for those comparing it to the future Nokia EOS and it's loss-less digital zoom - it can only do 3x zoom, so a direct comparison isn't possible, really (different tools for different needs).

The ergonomics could seriously impact it's use as an everyday phone, but I'll judge that when I can try it out in person. Oddly enough, this is exactly the phone I was campaigning for when the Galaxy Camera was released (thank you, Samsung).

Check out F-Stop Media Gallery for Android:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fstop.photo

You can sort your images by tags (plus the standard features of other galleries), which is a truly powerful way of sorting a large volume of images (as any real photog will tell you).

The real potential of Flickr is the cloud backup of big collections (not PRO big) of photos. To bad there's no nested sets (collections only add one more level) and bulk downloading is not native. However, this is the best you can get for free.

A simple optional(!) 4 digit PIN protection sounds nice.
