another boring upgrade which will sell like hotcakes.

Seriously good price, I hope Canon's 6D Mk II and Nikon's D7x0 or D6x0 will be able to match this camera. Also I hope Pentax launches some more FF lenses to fill void in their lineup. Good job ricoh on making Pentax FF DSLR a reality. To bad I have gotten rid of all my Pentax lenses.

Stollen1234: Slfies hype is way exaggerated..this need to be stopped

Sadly my country is leading in number of deaths due to selfies. Now a days on news channels in India we see news about about people dying while taking selfies. There are far too many self centered idiots on earth and unless they vanish this trend wont stop.

D200_4me: The response here has been brutal. ;-) Personally, I like the Peak Design straps/slings. Very comfortable and functional.

You should try Crumpler's Convinient/Industry disgrace straps as well they are very comfortable.

joe6pack: "This constant F1.4 lens ...". But the lens has a fixed focal length...

Does it mean that the aperture is fixed and cannot be changed?

Those video specs are really good. I hope it has Log profile. I will be renting this once its made available here in India.

On article Tamrac launches Hoodoo series with two camera bags (27 comments in total)

Packs look good, but one of the biggest shortcoming for me is that 20 opens from front which not very secure way to carry cameras.

On article Fujifilm announces development of EF-X500 flash (85 comments in total)
In reply to:

Amnon G: Dumb question risk: Why does anyone release something like this with AA batteries and not a modern Litium Ion (or Polymer) battery? Most Fuji X cameras use the WP-126 battery, why not use that instead?

It's been a while since I've seen any digital camera use AA batteries, why do flashes still cling to those?

Safety might be one of the issue due to which designers are choosing AA batteries over Li-ion/Li-Poly batteries. Lithium chemistry cells are quite unstable so unless LiFePO4 cells dont catch up its highly unlikely that there will be mass adoption of Li chemistry cells for flashes.

They call me Hans: Nice camera, but, you couldn't sandwich a tiny evf in the corner there? Not even a little?

It might have increased the height of camera a little bit. Maybe Fuji omitted EVF at the expense of smaller dimensions, but true viewfinder would have helped a lot.

Just wondering where is the 120mm Macro Fuji was showing off couple of months back.

Definitely a good upgrade over the 1st gen camera. It seems like that 8way joystick should be the welcome addition.

That SB5000 flashlight is quite puzzling unlike Pocketwizard/Phottix or even Canon's own ST-E3-RT the radio trigger is more cumbersome to use. Why didnt Nikon make a radio trigger similar to their older SU800?

Andreas Stuebs: I would love to see a Pentax K adapter to Micro4/3

I think there are a few adaptors for Pentax K to micro 4/3. If you mean a Focal length reducing adaptor then yes even I would love to see that adaptor. There are a lot old K Mount lenses on market available for cheap. I also have a lot of K mount lenses that I would love to use on micro 4/3 with focal reducer of some kind.

In reply to:

teddoman: Do any DSLR/DSLM cameras current support this format? Or will D5/D500 be the first?

D4 and D4s were the first Dslrs to add support for XQD cards. And looking at CFast V2.0 and XQD V2.0 it seems like CFast is faster(also more expensive) than XQD and more widely used in industry.

Maybe some free image editing aplication like GIMP or Photoshop elements should work fine with that config.

On article Here at last: Nikon announces D500 (1175 comments in total)

@John C Tharp: I really don't understand why majority of camera manufacturers aren't implementing UHS-II standard in their cameras. These SD cards are quite fast and might help with 4K recording as well as the fast shooting.

@RyanBoston: I know bodies aren't everything but sometimes having good camera bodies also helps. especially for sports/action shooters. I had switched to Nikon system but had to come back to Canon due to one single lens: MP-E 65mm macro. I primarily shoot macro and Canon is the only one with very good selection of macro lenses and lights.

Chaitanya S: Nikon not only got back to senses but also managed to blow 7D Mk II out of water. 200 frame Raw buffer is insane. They also managed to keep this camera development close to chest for quite sometime.

79 frames(14 bit) is also deep compared to 7D mk II's buffer.With this camera supporting XQD cards buffer will be emptied much quicker than with a CF card. Right only thing going on for 7D mk II is the lower price point.
