On Manfrotto launches miniature Lumie LED lights article (48 comments in total)

Lux is a value for illumination incident upon a surface. It means absolutely nothing as a product specification in this situation if we don't know what distance that surface is away from the light source. Are we talking six inches away from the light source, 1 foot, one meter, etc. I wouldn't be impressed at six inches. I would be impressed at one meter or more. This is a classic case of a corporate marketing department providing an incomplete specification.

FoveonPureView: They should have also sent another guy off on the tour with a Nokia 808 PureView, which, using the awesome symbian app Camera Pro, would have been able to produce full res 41.48 megapixel jpeg output at jpeg q100%!

Seriously, this was maybe newsworthy at the beginning of the smartphone era a few years ago. But today? Almost everyone understands that smart phones have real camera credentials. We get it. Is this news worthy any longer?
