tkbslc: How is this better than just reaching a few extra inches to my pocket for my phone?

It depends in what direction smartphones go. It might make sense for people to carry a small tablet instead, alongside a smartwatch for phonecalls and quick reading.

Jokes aside, insanely astonishing job!

Not weird. That is an eco-friendly, super-efficient, 2-wheeled car, suitable for people that only have 1 arm ... left.

Mike Wee: How exactly does attaching a piece of electronics to the bottom of the camera get around the need for hacking the firmware?

People resort to firmware hacks because manufacturers do not provide API's to the firmware, not because they don't have a Rasp. Pi in the grip.

Thanks, that actually makes sense guys, given that this is a Canon. What threw me was the reference to the Sony A55 hacking, for which I guess you could have a Cray built in the grip you still couldn't get away without hacking the firmware :-(

On Corel releases Service Pack 2 for PaintShop Pro X4 news story (28 comments in total)

carolowe: Why didn't I realize PaintShop Pro is just for Windows! Long time Windows user switching to Mac and didn't even stop to think about this. Really prefer PSP to the Adobe products. Before I jump off bridge, I guess one solution might be to run Wimdows on new MacBook? Even purchased Thunderbolt 27" display :(

Try Parallels. It lets you run Windows in a ... ahem, window. Can't comment on performance though. You should try it before buying.

caterpillar: This is good news! My question is - is this a pure EF mounting only, or does it allow me to use also ef-s lenses? It would be a great boon if it did. There are good lenses in the ef-s family like the 17-55 f2.8 and the 10-22. True native aps-c lenses. It would be a shame if we can't mount it there.

the ebay entry claims that it works with EF-S lenses. Take it for what it is, it's strange that the adapter is then not branded as EF/EFS to NEX...

"This adapter can fit all most EF/EF-s/ZE Lens, With electric contact point, let us control Full Range Aperture (1/3 step up/down) on camera when use A mode & M mode."

On NASA captures the earth at night with Nikon D3S news story (159 comments in total)

pentaxmesuper: @Michael König: greats videos, a little bit to fast, go in contact to bavarian TV BR3, produce a new volume of "space night" including the fantastic music of space night II-VIII and sell this on bluray 1080p. :-)

I thought it was too fast also. However I do not think it is Michael's choice. I am wondering if the shooting original interval was maybe too long... Then playing it a bit slower would result in jittery video.

gmariusica: there is a strange light spot reflection on the earth surface starting at 2:50 to 2:55, lower-left center side...what is it?????

Since both the ISS and the earth rotate the only way that stationary light can be a reflection of an outside object would be for that object to track the ISS to maintain the incidence angle constant. Quite unlikely.

I believe that is a reflection from inside the ISS. They are after all working (one can hope) and not sitting around in a dark room marveling at an intervalometer clicking away ;-)

shaocaholica: Does anyone know if any of the stills are available in RAW?

Since the whole thing was done with public money I think it most appropriate for the pictures to be made public.
