In reply to:

maxnimo: If this camera can produce images as good as the Nikon D750, I will be impressed. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Why would you expect the images to be that good.

SanPedro: If people don't want to pay for PS then stop moaning and use something else.

I've been using GIMP for the past few months. It's still isn't as familiar as PS, and obviously not as accomplished. But hey... It's free and it works, and some aspects are better than PS.

I think the rental model they have is actually fine. Means you always have an up-to-date version, whatever OS you're using.

That is what I am doing. When my current CS is no longer supported I will after MANY years move on to another product!

My Leica and Canon equipment have not seen any use in months.

Tougher times ahead for Canon and Nikon.

No need for a full DSLR anymore. Mine sits in the closet with the Leica gear.

Afraid that my iPhone and G1X MK2 is covering it well!

Get yours now as I feel the government is going to clamp down on the sales of these soon! They want to reserve drone use for themselves!

Does the G7 have a lens cap or auto cover when you turn it off?

On Accessory Review: Drobo Mini RAID article (149 comments in total)
In reply to:

The Squire: Remember kids: RAID is not backup.

Yes, you can keep working if a drive in the RAID array dies, but if the RAID controller fails (be it the mobo, a Drobo, or NAS chassis) it could trash the array or at least make it unavailable until you replace it.

Keep. Separate. Backups.

ALso remove the backups from the original location. A friends business burnt to the ground and all his records including his backup went up in flames. Not a day goes by that I do not carry a JumpDrive home with everything on it.

Go to Amazon and search NAS. There are pages and pages of products.

On Samsung Galaxy S5 camera review post (90 comments in total)

Got to borrow a S5 a few days ago and compared it to my iPhone 5S and all I can say is Apple needs to STEP UP to get even close to the quality of the S5!

Guess I will remain jealous as I am not moving to an Android device.

Richard Weisgrau: Born to sell Amazon services. Nothing more. Nothing less. I'll keep my iPhone, iPad, and iMac. I do not need Amazon. It is a convenience not a necessity. I think the day is approaching when I take Amazon and Amazon's DPR out of my bookmarks.

We will see who OS is more intrusive when it comes to pushing the money making aspects. I am betting that Amazon will win.

In reply to:

springsnow: $650 no contract may work if you are Apple or Samsung. I think Amazon is confused. They saw the ratings and they thought they are now Apple. People associates Amazon with value, ie. cheaper than the others. This is not cheaper. Yeah, you can claim 32GB or parallax on steroid, but in the end, you are competing with the established brand that people equate more with that price point (Apple, Samsung).
Example was Moto X. Its main feature, the Moto maker, was exclusive to AT&T, and it was selling for $199 with contract, same price as SGS4 and HTC One at that point. Guess what happened. Yeah.
I think by the end of this year, AT&T will discount this to $99 with contract to clear out inventory.

No to worry as Amazon will be forced to drop the price very soon.

I am betting the "Amazon" part of the phone's software will get in the way at every chance and will pass on this hardware advertisement.
