On article Lens shootout: Sony RX10 III destroys the competition (404 comments in total)
In reply to:

borno: the lens comparison should be done at the same time because the heat waves are bad for the canon, kind of bad for the sony and clear for the panasonic. IMO

Oh, boy....I thought I've heard it all. Heat waves? Never saw on any Canon package "To be used only in a cool climate for maximum performance"

On article Hands-on with the Sony RX10 III (307 comments in total)

With every iteration the price goes up $200-400. By the time the RX10 X is on the market the price will be $3000.

Interesting to see that even $399 is too much for some people.

dan801: I think it's too small. They should have made it the same size as the iPhone 6

"I agree if people want a smaller screen they could buy an IPhone 5"
But I thought the iPhone 5 doesn't sell anymore. I could be wrong. But wait, I'm not wrong.

SammyToronto: I like small phones but 4" is too small these days; it should've been 4.5" with the iPhone 7 pushed to 5" and the 7+ remaining at 5.5"!

Milking their customers? You have a choice, buy or.....well, don't buy Apple's products. I'm dad you're still happy with your Nokia flip phone

I am genuinely surprised to find out Pentax is still in business making digital cameras. I'm yet to see one tourist/photographer on the streets of NY using a Pentax. That probably explains why most forums don't even have a Pentax sub forum. Pentax might still be in this business due to some hardcore Pentax cheerleaders. They are the only ones seeing the end of the rainbow, the magic of HD coating (whatever that is) in their final pictures. I flipped a few pages on Flickr and couldn't find a reason to own such system. Canikon is equally good and they already have tons of lenses to choose from. No need to get excited if they 'reinvent' the wheel.

In reply to:

Jon Schick: The strategy of making a well-priced version of an existing well-regarded lens makes sense to me - and if Pentax offer this as the kit lens rather than a slower f3.5-5.6 or constant f4 offering, then I think they are reading the reasons why many people choose to move to FF quite carefully.

"Despite the fact 1300 USD is surprisingly low for a fast zoom"

Yeah, they should have priced the lens at $7500 to make you happy. $1300 low? Are you guys for real? What if the lens is a dud? What if the lens is only usable starting with f4? How can you guys say 'it's cheap' when you did not have a chance to test it. Besides, Pentax is not Canon or Nikon to ask a premium. Pentax is just.....Pentax. I'm surprised they are still in business at this point. $1300 cheap, huh?

In reply to:

brownie314: Wake me up when the fire sales start. Everyone who was going to buy this camera bought the last version. I don't think wifi will cause anyone to buy this one. An eye-fi card gets you most of the functionality of in-camera wi-fi.

Why so much hatred towards Ricoh. No one is forcing you to buy. Better spend your time going out and shoot.

In reply to:

sapporodan: So by releasing this camera are they going to update the older version? Its the same camera, and 90% of the changes are firmware.
So will the people who own the original be loosing out of these updates that would have likely been destined for the first one?

Just a thought.

Oh, boy.....this problem has been beaten to death by now. Don't like it, don't buy it. Duh

In reply to:

belle100: Judging from the price, they must all be much higher quality. However, I don't understand why it needs to be higher quality than their still counterparts. I mean the resolution of 4K is 4096x2160, which is much lower than those of still image (typical 24MP) required.

"Anyway, getting the 8Mpix equivalent sharpness at the corners is not cheap, especially at T1.5”
Whomever shoots wide open doesn't need sharp corners

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?

In reply to:

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

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