On Enthusiast mirrorless camera roundup (2014) article (189 comments in total)

"As we round the bend, into the home stretch...

Sony pulling away by three lengths, followed Panasonic, Olympus and Samsung neck to neck for second place...

Fuji trying to pass those three with renewed breakaway energy...

At the far stretch, just now, making it at the halfway mark, is Nikon and Canon...

Wait...

Nikon is struggling...

Oooh! Canon has just collapsed and smashed the M into pieces! What a tragedy! The EOS M has disintegrated into oblivion!"

Hasselblad's CEO, IAN Rawcliffe, adds "Fuelled by our ongoing collaboration with Sony and Zeiss, the pocket-sized Stellar models are proving extremely popular. Photographers are delighted to have the option of owning the latest technology married with Hasselblad's design vision and heritage."

There you have it folks: It can't go more looney than this: straight from the horses mouth.

That quote up there looks like every bit of a valid sarcastic comment here in this thread.

Well done Mr. CEO.

If you quickly click on the images, the grip looks like a set of blinking Christmas lights. Well timed for this season...

But, but...

DPR shame on you...

Just like in Breaking Bad...

You can't totally get rid of the body just by pouring acid over it, in a tub.

You have to scrape the remnants from the basement floor and flush it down the toilet.

They should cut out the TV division.

Disconnect the caboose.

Metz flashes are still relevant in photography.

On Casio targets golfers with Japan-only Exilim EX-FC500S article (36 comments in total)

This camera will sell well in Japan.

The cost of the new camera is a fraction of what these players indulge in and loose in bets.

Cheaper than a new driver...

Sooner or later...

Sony will realize...

Hey! Why not put a cell phone into our high end compact and mirrorless cameras!

It doesn't matter what brand it is: Rumors are just Room Oars!

Even at the opposite end of success, Hustle Blood still elicits great derision.

On A second glance: two takes on the Leica X article (378 comments in total)

"Designed, developed and built by the German company."

There in that simple sentence is the reason for the relatively high price.

They didn't copy and paste from another manufacturer... like they usually do.

Glad to see Lytro learning to construct a proper ergonomic camera.

Quite an improvement from their old days of the Salt Shaker.

There is a large ocean vessel on the upper right of image 8.

Yet there is no track of destruction (the ship being dragged) from water's edge to where it has been dumped.

That alone is very powerful.
