Oh, my......people freak like they are paying Leica prices. Come on guys! This is a cheap camera to start with. It'll be worth $50 after a couple years of use. Who needs a serial number on a disposable product.
On the other hand, people should just go out, shoot and stop worrying about labels. The only people not worried are the ones in the field using their cameras.

Wow, I went through most posts and I can't believe there are so many losers that hate rich people. She's rich because she's good at something. Most people are good at nothing, hence the 8-5pm daily schedule they have to follow until they retire.

Gediminas 8: "one of the most successful commercial pop stars of all time"

This "of all time" is really tiring.

Who is " Taylor Swift " ? Did she play alongside Elvis, Pink Floyd , The Beatles, The Rolling Stones ?

Who's Rolling Stones? Or pink Floyd?

Bene Placito: "Taylor Swift" and "Music" are mutually exclusive.

That explains why she has tens of millions$$$$ from music.

Good thing Canon flashes don't use capacitors, especially those made in China

d10694: I like the SJ4000 fakes (copies or clones ?) of GoPro's, which are now being faked (copied / cloned ?) themselves, so we now have fakes of fakes on GoPros, or should that be clones of GoPros being copied, or should that be faked, or cloned ?

At least the sellers are quite happy to state that it is a clone, and to sell it cheaper, and Amazon are happy to let them do so.

Yet, technically they are supposed to be pretty good.

I have one of those SJ cameras, which I purchased about a year ago for one event. At the time I had a choice, gopro for $400 or SJ for $60. Paid $60, used it for that one event, and it collects dust on a shelf. I'd rather have a $60 collect dust than a $400. The output is as good a gopro (I compared it with my friend's gopro 3)

In reply to:

tocar: When and if these flashes fail or explode Canon's reputation would be at stake. How come they copied everything including the name? Are they selling these flashes at the same price as Canon's?

These flashes are made by the same people, in the same factories. Why would these fail and not the original ones.
Besides, I e heard the same story about third party batteries for 15 years now, and I'm yet to hear about one battery that damaged a camera. Original battery $50, third party $5. Original flash $500, fake $150

The only users here are the ones that paid $500 for the real thing, made in China, when they could have had the China made flash for $50.

jefmcc: probably made in the same factory, same assembly line, by the same workers

"This seems to be an inferior counterfeit product crafted only to enrich the criminals who are selling it."
Can you tell just by looking at the pictures?

RichRMA: Nothing p------ off an Ebay seller than having to spend time answering endless inane, masturbatory questions from a "list-maker."

Good one. I hate answering a ton of questions only to be told "well, this camera is too big for my hands". Like the size of the camera has changed by the time I answered his endless list.

"When buying a camera body, look to purchase from users who clearly state the number of shutter actuations the camera has"

And if they give you the shutter actuations number, that means the camera is genuine and you can trust the seller for telling the truth. Cool logic

shademaster: small body doesn't make sense without small lenses.

You mean small like the Fuji 27? Or maybe the 18mm lens? What about the 35mm lens? Not enough, Mr Pro?

Paul Verhoeven: "It starts at $799 body-only, $899 with the XC 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 lens"

Good luck competing with $499 E-M10 and E-M5 14-42 kits, and $699 a6000+16-50 kit.

Meh, first of all, the M5 is a FIVE years old camera with a much smaller sensor than Fuji's. On the other hand, Olympus colors are over saturated, fake. It might work for people that like fake colors.

In reply to:

Old Cameras: This seems a little redundant, a remix of existing hardware with nothing new except software features. And it's still relatively expensive. And who was asking for a smaller camera? Fuji has an excellent range of lenses, what about a bigger camera with a huge screen and viewfinder, a 1000 shot battery and plenty of room for controls and a large grip to compete with the best APS-C cameras whether they are mirrorless or DSLR? And a new sensor...

True, more pounds, the better. I wish they made a 50lbs camera. Sure, a trolly wouldn't hurt either.

The Name is Bond: Until they fix the over-smoothed high ISO jppegs, I'm sadly going to have to give their new cameras a miss.

Jpeg people shooters, especially for events, indoor children pics etc, are affected by this.

Dang, so many pro's on Dpreview

On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1225 comments in total)
In reply to:

mediasorcerer: So the a6000 is 1 mark less than the nx1 @ dxo, 82 v 83.
And its 1/3 the price. And smaller and lighter.
a7r blows the samsung away [95v83] and its 2- 300$ more, hmmm.
Too overpriced for nx1- no wonder its not selling very well.
The lenses for nx-1 are Huge too.
for the same price as nx1 and lens, you can have sony ff a7/r and lens.
Or body only either one give or take 100 odd dollars.
hmmmm.
If you own an a6000 you got value for money, not so much with nx1 though.
Highly overpriced.

I see. Back in the day people used to go out and learn to use a camera. Nowadays is all about pixel peeping and companies that tell us what to like and what not.
No wonder companies like Leica can afford to ask a premium for all those cameras they throw on the market. They are all aimed to photographers. Buy an Olympus, Panasonic, Canon or even Nikon and the only thing people do is to spend months to set up all those buttons and when they finally learn everything about the settings, another camera comes on the market and start over again.

panpen: Most posts here remind me of my neighbor and his Hyundai.

He always says his 3L engine Hyundai can do as good as my 3L BMW because they are about the same size. He questioned me a few times about the price I paid for my BMW. Every time I tell him the price (close to $45k) he tells me his Hyundai cost him half of that. The thing is, he doesn't know, I know he can't afford a BMW. I always let him believe our cars are 'almost the same'. Ciao

With very few exceptions, American cars are garbage. Unless is a rental, I would never spend my money on such manure. Sorry if I offend anyone.
