  • Replied in For Jim,
    It's a simple matter of sales / marketing gobbledygook. It's just cheaper to manufacture a tilt screen.  There is a durability factor as well but the full swivel screen has proven to be quite ...
  • Your wishes will be granted. I on the other hand will be leaving on a cruise Sept. 6. Guess when the SX60 will be announced. Sept 7. I own an SX40hs and have an "old" SX10hs for a backup. I will ...
  • Let's forget the 100x rumor as it just won't happen.  Let's forget the bigger sensor rumor as it just isn't going to happen.  The sensor size is fine for a bridge super zoom camera.  The zoom will ...
  • Well Tom, it was a discussion about declining sales for all digital gear.  Some will take personal offence when anyone suggests their precious camera is being upstaged by a new concept that just ...
  • I sympathize. I have been experiencing much the same over the past few weeks. I have my desktop, a laptop and a notebook all running wirelessly off a Linksys EA6400. IE 11 and Win. Live mail will ...
  • Marty, you are so right on here.  Monthly (rental type) fees in lieu of ownership is the new means for corporation greed to take us all for a merry ride.  Of course we have a choice but that road ...
  • Absolutely!!!!  With that and Mario's most wanted list this could be a smashing hit. Won't happen but we can dream.  :-P
  • Replied in My Advice too
    Yes, the whole electronics system is going off the tracks.  PCs, TVs, Cameras, phones and even our cars and toasters are much smarter than we.  Marketing gurus have all gone for "Smart" systems to ...
  • William, Have you tried contacting Acronis?  I use ATI 2013 and it has worked well but I haven't used it quite as you described.  I only update every 2 to 3 years and only on special deals.  With ...
  • Why would anyone want a full cluttered up screen with multi colored icons with a desktop setup? Fine for a small touch screen but for a real computer with a mouse and keyboard?  I await Windows 9 ...
  • My wife's S100 which has the dreaded S#, 41xxxxxxxx , has been ticking along for over 2 years.  Although stated in a service notice that they will repair free of charge, regardless of the stated ...
  • You may see one of the above as an upgrade to the SX50.  Pick one and be happy.  If more goodies are added Canon has a track record of removing an equal number of features.  Would you settle for a ...
  • Seems you are ignoring the advice to phone Canon and find out exactly what the true story is.  It may be that they will give you a better deal than what you are now contemplating.  It's worth a ...
  • The serial # 44xxxxxxx  is outside the recall notice of a lens error issue.  However why not call Canon Support directly ?  I would ask them what the repair charge would be and if the retailer ...
  • Right on.  The right tool for the job.  Now I must agree that some new SZs can produce decent video, even professionals use them.  Although I don't use video it is a-ok to have it available.  What ...
  • Several months ago DPR was going through a bad period where nothing seemed to work as expected.  There was a big change over for the site's layout and it upset my computer.  And we can't allow ...
  • Exactly the same for my SX10.  Works in the normal folded in, screen out, and also swung out with the screen forward but not twisted in any other position.  I recently took the tiny screws out at ...
  • No. The SX line still has a long way to go. There will be a SX70, 80, 90 and 100, that may well be the end of the line. Now correct me if I'm wrong but that means 8 more years of zooming pleasure. ...
  • Buy a phone for a phone .  Buy a video camera for video.  Buy a still camera for photography.  Why is that so difficult?  As soon as the marketing gurus install a phone module in my SZ I will give ...
  • Seems about right.  If so I will take a look at the 60x model.  I do think a May intro for North America is optimistic.  We shall collectively hold our breath in anticipation.
