On article Medium-format mirrorless: Hasselblad unveils X1D (1158 comments in total)

Good on you, Hassy, for smashing the medium format MIRRORLESS glass ceiling.

If somebody has to be the first to do it, might as well be Hasselblad.

Good riddance, flappy mirror. [...and MLU pain]

On article Sony warns against use of unauthorized third-party apps (164 comments in total)

The danger of outside software hack is it that it may work fine for now, but the app function doesn't know the future tweaks that Sony will be making. A future legitimate Sony software upgrade, when installed, can wreck havoc on a previously upload unauthorized hack. Sony may be just protecting themselves from software repair headaches.

A file corruption can render your prized camera into a beautiful door stopper.

Enter the FM3A... oops, wrong forum.

On article Hasselblad to announce 'game changer' next week (454 comments in total)

Marketing Lesson for Hasselblad:

Entice and tease the the public when you are well respected and well regarded.

When you have lost all credibility in announcing new products, you will only invite hecklers and scoffers...

Like what is happening now, in this forum.

Cool gadget... but only relevant up until the next phone upgrade, which is about 2 years.

On article D500 owner formally accuses Nikon of false advertising (470 comments in total)

This error, while they may be pooh poohed by luddites who won't be using WiFi, is a BIG lapse in QC and Advertising honesty.

Nikon users are going to be angry.

The worst is Nikon having their loyal following feeling tar and feathered.

In reply to:

CameraLabTester: Nikon should get a new marketing team and ad maker.

It's much cheaper than future recalls.

On article 2016 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras around $500 (208 comments in total)

The winners here have one common trait: WiFi and NFC.

The Canon EOS M series and Nikon 1 series are remnants of the cold war era and should be frozen and the brand companies should let it go...

Google+ members had this technology many years ago... but did not capitalize on it.

Facebook™ is the right vehicle at this point in time.

On article 2016 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras $500-800 (214 comments in total)

The ILC segment is exciting and action packed.

The innovations and offerings of manufacturers can only benefit the consumer, who really, are a spoiled lot.

It is always for the good of all photographers when techniques like these are shared and discussed.

Everyone is a winner.

Photo No. 13

That cylinder right there is where the similarities to all take down and pull apart games part ways.

After a while, these dismantling games become a regular show pony, but the lens... Ooh the lens... THAT's where the crux of this whole break apart peeping Thomases eventually converge interest on...

How they pack those elements so nicely, to come up with a great image to plaster on the sensor. And the irony of it all is they NEVER show this module being taken apart.

On article Accessory Review: Peak Design Slide Camera Sling strap (144 comments in total)

It used to be cool having straps around your neck and shoulders displaying your gear like necklace jewellery of an Olympic multi medallist...

Today, it is a Jurassic fashion, remnant of an era where showing off was the way to go.

People these days have switched to something more sinister: Stealth.

The really amazing thing that was not shown: How the lens assembly expands and contracts!

But that might be a different chapter... due to complications.

It's a whole new module to dissect.

"...creating captivating galleries of high-resolution, copyrighted content."

This is what Getty is having a tantrum about.

Don't be so cocky, Mr Miyashita and Getty... if Google disenfranchises all your images in their search engine, who looses? You?

You betcha bye golly WOW!
