Panasonic Manufacturing needs to rediscover the fine lost art of ENGRAVING.

fuego6: Why another product from ACDSee? They have Pro 6 and ACDSee 15.. .so where the heck does this fit in and why? Another money grab? I'm confused!

ACDSee 15 vs ACDSee Photo Editor 6: Right now, on its web store, the company is selling the former product at half price - $24.99. My guess is that this is a closeout sale, and that Photo Editor 6 is being positioned as the replacement.

On Canon EOS 6D Hands-on Preview (1035 comments in total)

Forget the detail comparisons and pixel-peeping. This camera will sell on its two basic strong points: One, it is a reasonably priced full-frame prosumer DSLR (matched only by the Nikon D600); and two, it is the lightest and most compact full-frame DSLR currently on the market (or soon to be). In fact, in the FF 35mm digital camera space, only the Leica M9 & M9P & M9-monochrome and the new Sony RX-1 are smaller.

John Romas: Why Sony removed the infrared remote sensor from the Nex-N5 which the Nex-5 has? That's just mean! :( And why there is no mention in the article about this (apart from the specs) ?

Regarding this statement on Page 3 of the Sony NEX-5N review: "The 5N retains the NEX-5's shape, but adds a soft rubber coating to the grip"
This contradicts my experience and the experience of other forum members of this website. The truth is that while the NEX-5 sported a rubbery material on the grip area, the follow-on NEX-5N uses hard plastic with a texture that mimics a rubbery material.
