In reply to:

newworld666: No real game Changer in the list like the 7DII ? or even QX1 ?

@newworld: You can make a list of nice lenses for ANY camera brand - Pentax, Sigma, Fujifilm, Olympus, Nikon, Samsung, Leica, Sony, etc. etc. etc.,

As for "plugging", try mirrorless.

TakePictures: Now I wonder what brand receives the most "faves" on Flickr.

A lot of cameras aren't even recognised by Flickr, and the stats therefore BASICALLY WORTHLESS.

Some of us tried to fix this a while ago via their feedback service, and shortly thereafter Flickr shut down the feedback service without addressing the issues.

On Photokina 2014: Ricoh stand report article (150 comments in total)
In reply to:

mayurgogoi: These lights will eat powers--you can not take to jungles--animals will be alert as they will see these lights!&moreover--Ricoh turns a camera from serious to comedy due to the green lights!

Personally I don't support colourful cameras with bright colours since they can fall you in danger in jungles--so black is good for hiding!

It's available in black, and you can disable the LEDs. LEDs in any case use hardly any power at all. Any digital camera's LCD is likely to be more of a distraction, and definitely much more of a power drain, by orders of magnitude. You are welcome.

So when is the Ricoh interview happening? I see that there's no slot scheduled for it.

On 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... something. article (1658 comments in total)
In reply to:

mpgxsvcd: Canon still thinks that they are “Winning”. They think that total market share is the ultimate measure of success. They built up such a dominate market share years ago that they can’t even fathom that it will ever go away.

Just watch over the next year. Some people will buy the 7D MKII and G7X. However, those sales won’t stay strong after Christmas. After that Canon will begin to see their sales slide drastically. Other manufactures will see sales slides as well. However, Canon and Nikon’s will be EPIC or Disastrous depending on your point of view.

Sales will continue to struggle after that. They simply will have saturated the market for DSLRs. Everyone who wants one of their cameras will have it already and everyone else will want some form of mirrorless camera.

Eventually they will decide that mirrorless is the answer. It will be too late. They will fade away just like Kodak. I really wish I could go back to the days of the Canon A5 Zoom, S400, S1-IS, and Canon 5D MK II.

If I were to choose a system, and my concern were not whether the system fills some specific need that I have, but rather the availability of services and accessories for the system, I'd pick a brand that is on its way up, not one on its way down.

Gigantic yawn. On second thoughts, no, a very small one. A tiny unimportant yawn. Like a ladyfart, only from the top.

On Zeiss introduces 'no distortion' Otus 1.4/85mm article (338 comments in total)
In reply to:

Pixel Pooper: People whining about no AF, this lens is not for you. A good MF shooter should be more accurate than any AF system.

As for that Japan myth... Zeiss Touits have autofocus, Leica X and T series have autofocus (developed outside of the cooperation with Panasonic), Schneider Kreuznach has announced plans for m43 AF lenses, and Samsung (Korean) uses autofocus.

Leandros S: The major design flaw here is that an NEX style camera is slimmer. The QX1 has a major pocketability issue in direct comparison.

It's attached to a phone. There's already bulk along that axis. No, it's a design obsession, plain and simple. They want their devices to be simple geometrical shapes, but that's not always appropriate. Hotshoe? Yup, there could have been space for that.

falconeyes: History repeats.

I am wondering which Chinese companies will emerge copying Japan camera corp. now. I guess copying esp. MILCs would be easy.

Looking at examples like http://www.kinefinity.com/?lang=en I guess the happy days for Canon & Co. are to end sooner than later.

Thanks Falko - I think that will be worth revisiting when the marketing department finds a way to write in intelligible English. My kanji is a bit rusty...

There's absolutely no reason they couldn't have placed the battery off to one side.

On Niko announces service advisory for D810 'bright spots' article (379 comments in total)
In reply to:

pcm81: Long time ago, it used to be that if you bought a nikon camera you were guaranteed quality product, no matter which camera you got. Now that Nikon is supporting consumer market low quality produces are encountered more and more often. D600 fiasco is a good example of a product gone bad, and it looks like nikon has learned their lesson. It's good to see that the company is trying (hopefully) to steer back to "only top of the line products name rand guarantee"

No, that's a compound noun. When you say "beef cattle", beef is not an adjective.

I would be surprised if it isn't covered by a slew of patents. I believe Pentax and Canon have something relevant in their portfolios.

In reply to:

Luisifer: I was uploading my photos to WM sometimes. But ones i upload one my photo with unique lens and idea that later i write down the article about this lens.

In this case i uploaded photo with usually settings but this time i added the link to this photo on the other online gallery. Some hour later they sign it that it is necessary to add some other permission when it is possible "not my photo" (thanks to link to other gallery). I typed somewhere that it is my photo. Nothing happend so i was waiting. One week later they deleted it.

I was very angry. Nobody discused with me and i didn´t know what was missing.

But i was so angry that they didn't communicate that i added links to other uploaded photos without adding for me unknown perm.. I inform the "delguy" that other images are the same let he delete they too.

And i succeeded. All photos are gone.

Maybe this should be the way? Monkey cant add this perm. too... "with the right settings of wikif. and with the link to other www place"?

Yes, you have to go through an obscure process that for no particularly good reason is called OTRS. The monkey probably didn't, though.

@HowaboutRAW: Neither of the above examples are necessarily adjective uses. However, it turns out that dictionaries do list quality as an adjective now. So your statement lacks both referent and truth.

On Sony a5100 First Impressions Review preview (593 comments in total)
In reply to:

ADRNATURE: The bigwigs in the industry [nikon and canon] are far behind in this segment.
Weldon Sony.

Donnie, in its June 30, 2014 Quarterly Earnings Report, Fujifilm characterised sales of the X-T1 "and others" as "strong", and stated that "sales of premium digital cameras X Series were strong. [...] Fujifilm is working to expand sales centering on interchangeable lens camera, increasing the product lineup in the X Series of premium cameras that leverage
Fujifilm’s exclusive technologies and, XF Lens Series, interchangeable lens systems."

So it sounds like at least one company is making money.

fsgray: "There are no other inexpensive mirrorless cameras at this time that can record 1080p video at 50Mbp"

Canon EOS-M does.

Completely agree with you, Markol - couldn't have said it better. How is it that one man used to produce as many reviews as now a staff of over half a dozen?
