On Engineering a Difference: Ben Von Wong Part 2 article (39 comments in total)

Can't knock a guy who got out of the working dregs into something more enjoyable. I did the same (not photography related) but the monetary enrichment part still eludes me.

810mm is quite the reach for nature photogs. Not too concerned about the price. High initially then it drops later and/or there are discounts.

I have a J1 with three lenses. Only $500 invested and the first camera system I didn't want to sell off after a year or two. Very light and tiny. This new lens would be quite a reach ($) for me though.

These people who complain about Nikon winning the lawsuit are probably the first to complain if their photo gets stolen on the Internet.

Reilly Diefenbach: Not one picture of a landscape to show what 24MP can really do?

When I was flipping through the samples, I had the very same thought. Where are the landscapes?

On Hands-on with the GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition article (216 comments in total)

If the GoPro is out of your price range, check out the Mobius camera for under $80 US. It is very small, beautiful crisp HD video, clear audio with adjustable levels, high dynamic range mode and, apparently, you can get a wide angle lens for it. Plenty of YouTube reviews.

Gorgeous! But can someone tell me why the Vimeo window self pauses? I have to keep hitting play to may it continue.

On First Impressions Review: Using the Canon PowerShot G16 article (353 comments in total)

This is a great travel camera when used outdoors or where you can keep the ISO's low. I have to agree with those who say that the price of admission is a bit too much when you consider what else is out there these days.

Very nice image quality. This is where other manufacturers need to learn. They provide cameras with a nice sensor, yet include a crappy kit lens. Look at the last Pentax review. Great sensor, crappy lens.

It's a photo accessory. It is supposed to be expensive.

Trollshavethebestcandy: The K-01 is one reason alien life forms seek intelligent life forms on other planets. Surely an intelligent life form could not allow such visual evil to exist.
Seriously that cam is so hideous I could use it for shark repellent in a tank full of starving sharks and topped off with blood and bacon.

I don't think it was that bad. It did had a toyish look though. If you want to see the most hideous camera ever made, Google image the Konika Aiborg. The thing looks inflated, angry or just melted.

I had the Fujifilm 6800Z. It was an odd designed vertical styled point and shoot. It didn't have standout features other than the design, but it did shoot video with sound. Hard to believe it was 12 years ago already.

I can see someone walking around with this rig and tripping or stepping off of a ledge... See if the warranty covers that!

On Pentax K-500 Real-world Samples Gallery article (31 comments in total)

Images are excellent. The kit lens is atrocious. Anything not in the center is soft. I have the DL kit lens and it is much better. I'd recheck with another sample.

On Canon PowerShot G16 Real-world Samples Gallery article (92 comments in total)

Looks like Canon has a new approach to noise reduction. They seem to be letting more grain show through rather than try to obliterate it at high ISOs. I think it looks much better this way. Of course people will complain about the noise now. Nikon N1 cameras and the LX7 are similar at handling the noise. Much better than looking at a smeary water color mess.

I can't stand the shills. They come in the comments or forums and shill some site, acting like it is regular conversation. One example is the user who shilled some memory card recovery service. It was their only two posts and awoke an old thread to post. Sometimes it is hard to tell if they are for real unless you check their profile.

300 bucks for any camera with a 1/2.3 sensor is asking too much.

I bought an Epson PhotoPC in early 1996. I chose it over the QV-10 because it had 640x480 resolution over the QV-10's 320x240. The Epson lacked a view screen and battery life was ~20 shots!

In the early 90's my employer bought a Canon still digital camera that took these mini "video floppy disks". It had 640x480 resolution, had a proprietary interface card that was installed in the computer's internal expansion slot. It made very good pictures for the resolution but it was very expensive. Hard to believe that was over 20 years ago now.

On Bad Weather = Good Photography article (77 comments in total)

I learned back in the film days that shooting in overcast conditions will often yield more pleasing results because of the huge contrast between light and shadow is not an issue.
