On Panasonic reveals Lumix DMC-GF7 with tilting LCD article (78 comments in total)
In reply to:

LiSkynden: I dont believe it... again another stupid selfie LCD camera! First every camera brand ditched the good old vari-angle screen and now everyone puts on this stupid selfie LCD???

They have their smart phones for that. They dont buy bulky cameras with selfie LCD, helloo!

I wasnt talking about Panasonic only. Canon G7X, Samsung NX mini ... i bet there will be more soon.

And "bulky" i meant comparing to a mobile phone, that they carry around everywhere anyway, so why would they take a camera with them.
When Canon released their first selfie camera, everybody was laughing ... what was it again ... Canon PowerShot N. now every brand wants to have at least one.

And i am not a dramaqueen, lol ...This is only because i want the vari-angle screen back :(
Oh and i carry my BULKY Canon 650IS around :D

On Richard Franiec offers Canon PowerShot G7 X custom grip article (110 comments in total)
In reply to:

sdh: Kudos to Richard for offering a workaround to the manufacturer's design flaw. Why camera makers continue to build these camera's without grips is beyond me. The lens already protrudes from the camera body. There's no space to save by omitting an essential point of ergonomics.

Exactly what i was gonna say!!! I dont get it... its like camera manufacturers dont follow these forums, discussions etc. I mean I WOULD, if i would be a camera manufacturer. ... and you would think that big names like Canon would have an employee ONLY for that purpose!

I wonder if Richard Franiec would make a custom vari-angle flip out screen for this camera and bring the camera back to the G series. haha.
and who could tell Canon to stop making these stupid selfie LCDs...

In reply to:

LiSkynden: "Appealing to the selfie generation..."
they have mobile phones and mirrors for that.

How do you shoot low angle portrait with this? Try it. If you flip out the screen, you dont shoot no portraits. ...ok, maybe selfies.
What is Canon thinking nowadays?

Oh yes, i forgot that. Can i get Hipstamatic to Canon G7X? :D

LiSkynden: Wow, i was thinking about a "pop up view finder" already years ago, ... about the time when OVFs started to disappear fron P&S cameras, and pop up flashes started to come. :D

Yeah ... my version had flash in the same pop up. :D

LiSkynden: "the kens element is so big that it cant have an auto lens cap" ... someone said when G1X was released.
Does this mean the lens is now smaller?

On Windows XP is dead. Long live Windows XP 'Bliss' article (119 comments in total)
In reply to:

budi0251: Still use WinXP on my Thinkpad R52 (Pentium m 1.8Ghz + 2GB DDR2), mainly because I can't get proper drivers for its display adapter in Win7.

And then some,

I use WinXP SP3 32bit for my desktop PC (AMD X2 3Ghz w/ 4GB of RAM) too.
Indeed I lost about half gigabyte of RAM.

Why is that?

Well, I do love simple UI and it simply works for me, to make or change file association, file search features, drivers, etc.
Currently most of the time the machine would run Photoshop CS6 with latest compatible ACR & DNG converter. I have no problem (yet) with latest DSLR Raw files.

Then some office stuff & web browser (Firefox), media player classic, and... that's it I think my main use of PC.

Dunno if in the future they would force people to use Photoshop CC or Lightroom 5 in order to open latest future RAW files, then I might upgrade to Win 8.1

You're not alone :D I still do all my work with XP. And then boot Win7 if i need to do something that requires modern OS. ... play Batman :D

My daughter emailed me yesterday and asked how do i change InDesign's file assosiation on Win7, when it trys to open in Illustrator. I said beats me. lol.

To me XP is like an old car: not everybody want to drive with a modern car. Some people drive with 50 year old cars, or even older yes?
Or ... i play drums, my drums are mostly from 1930's.

Ok, it's not the same but XP is not dead!

On CP+ 2014: Hands-on with Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II article (200 comments in total)
In reply to:

LiSkynden: Gone is the good old vari-angle screen!
... i would never buy a camera with such complicated looking flip out screen. How do you use it on portrait?

Lets hope they bring the old vari-angle screen back to normal G series now :D

About off axis, off centre screen, ... The vari-angle screen is lined with lens when you shoot portrait, what about tilt screen? Isnt it only on axis when you do landscape?
I always wonder how people shoot portrait with tilt screen, if not keep lens fixed. I mean when i do it with vari angle, i have the camera so that shutter button is up and if i now imagine where the tilt screen would be ... its off axis right? and i would be limited to shoot like it was fixed screen.
Sorry but that feels a lot more awkward than vari angle being off axis on landscape shooting.

Look at this pic
http://i1033.photobucket.com/albums/a414/lindon4/inhand-back2.jpg
Thats how i would hold the camera when shooting portrait. Where do you put that tilt screen now when you have to shoot above head, or knee level, or even lower?
