On Hands-on with the Pentax K-S1 article (317 comments in total)

It seems most of discussion circles around the damn LED s and nobody likes them. C'mon, people you just can turn em off. It's an optional thing, I suppose didn't cost a fortune to implement, and somebody might like it.

In reply to:

barb_s: 146 mm but the camera lens is 400mm. Why not use it all for the plane?

I look at the camera lens and I see, among other inscriptions: 9.1 - 146. So 146mm is maximum reach. 400 is 35mm equivalent.

On High-end pocketable compacts 2013 roundup article (136 comments in total)

For me, the best is Olympus XZ-10. None of those presented here has a bright aperture at the long end, and, at normal ISO, the IQ of the cheaper Oly is similar (from RAW), despite the sensor size.
But, again, Dpr ignored it. or maybe is the sixth hidden camera:

"Here are the six models that will make your smartphone jealous:
•Canon PowerShot S120
•Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100
•Fujifilm XQ1
•Nikon Coolpix P330
•Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1"

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7 Review preview (561 comments in total)
In reply to:

Henrik Herranen: I think that sensor size should always be in the first page "Key specifications" list, and at the top of it, too. In my opinion if is more important than whether the sensor is Live CMOS, CCD, Backlit CMOS, or toast. Well, ok, maybe perhaps not more important that toast.

Please...?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
"The Live MOS sensor is a brand name of Image sensor used by Leica, Panasonic and Olympus in their Four Thirds System DSLR manufactured since 2006"
So, can you tell the size from that definition?

marike6: Didn't Olympus release a high end compact called the XZ10, that was previewed here with hundreds of comments from seemingly excited users because of the fast zoom with a wide range?

We haven't heard a single word about it since.

@Timmbits:
you mean that an enthusiast shouldn't have a tiny camera to carry almost everywhere?, cause that was my purpose.
the criteria: a compact that has full control, including over depth of field, to back-up my DSLR.
Of course there is the RX100, but costs more than twice (however, the RX100 can replace the DSLR in almost every circumstance)

I bought the XZ-10 and meets my expectations: solid build, fast operation, decent image quality.
I chose it because it was the sole really-compact that had that fast lens at long end, F2.7.

"Pink Floyd included a similar photograph opposite the lyrics of Shine on You Crazy Diamond in the Wish You Were Here lyrics booklet."

A close comparison for what I'm seeing here is a photograph of a dead fly floating in a soup.

Piciul: Photoshop should have fraction from current buyers. Hobbyists and enthusiasts need PS like they need a sewing machine for mending stockings.
Unless you are creating covers for magazines, there are terrestrial options for adjusting your photos (e.g. Acdsee pro)

Sorry for disappointing you, but I only have the knowledge of the common sense :)

TWIZEEL: I can't understand a people who says it is cheating. That is Visual Art, not a sport competition, not a court evidence. Artists (photographer) could use any mean to transfer his impression to audience. Only we can arguing is about technics itself.

Take and process one photograph in whatever way you desire and I'll call you a photograph.
Take TWO and combine them and I'll call the one who used the camera photograph and the one who combined whatever you want - artist.

backayonder: I think the picture would look better if you removed the weathered old house and replaced it with a Holiday Inn or maybe the Eiffel Tower.

LOL... Best comment. The Eiffel tower rules.

Those days we can obtain computer-generated images and put whatever we want in them. So, why bother to buy gear and move into nature?

KodaChrome25: I agree with Atlien991.... too many negative people commenting. If it's not your thing, move along. Create your own photoblog.

Wouldn't have been more simple if you just posted a positive comment? Along with 20 users who like your comment?

In reply to:

atlien991: Why are so many commenters negative on this site? If it's not for you just move on.

Perhaps because we live in a (almost) free world and this is democracy.
The question is why are you commenting comments instead of commenting the article?

Ulfric M Douglas: So this is a hands-on preview of a non-working camera? So why hands on?

It says pretty clear "Fujifilm X100S First Look", not hands-on. So, why hands on?

I downloaded it and it turned to be the most direct, efficient and intuitive photo editor on the market; and the default viewer, too.

On Pentax announces K-01 K-mount APS-C mirrorless camera article (874 comments in total)
In reply to:

ellarsee: Pentax seems to think k-01 should be pronounced Kay zero one. The natural way to read it for most folks will probably be Kay oh one. Technically, it might be a Kay-Oh, but since most people think it looks like carp, we could read it in "leet" and call it a Koi.
On the other hand, we could take our cues from our friends across the pond, and call it "The Noughty One".

Or Kay The Zero One
