On Canon PowerShot G3 X: What you need to know article (597 comments in total)
In reply to:

LiSkynden: Did anyone else notice that Canon moved the good old "vari-angle" screen to their semiPro SLRs and started to use that stupid selfie screen on their advanced P&S cameras?

I asked this a few times before but never got an answer to it: how do you shoot a low angle portrait with the selfie screen?

Bring back the vari-angle screen!!!

- Not true
- Not true

;)

1. I always open the fully articulating screen same time i press the power button. This is because i have been using VariAngle so long that its just a routine move. So it doesnt take any longer to activate than what the camera takes to power up.

2. I have VariAngle on my Canon 60D and nope, its not impossible to use your left hand to hold the or use the lens.
I would say its more like other way around cause the tilting screen sticks to you stomach, while VariAngle is on the side and the CAMERA is steady against your stomach.

But well, some like mother and some like daughter ;)

Zeegee: Canon is digging themselves a deeper hole with each "new" consumer camera.
I switched over to the Lumix G1 ages ago...amazingly it has a swivel LCD and an EVF..........everyone should say a prayer for Canon, they seem to be on a very slippery slope

What about Nikon s9900? Looks really good but only thing that worries me is the f3.7 lens...

Im not over reacting. Try to turn the camera to portrait position, and now flip out the tilt screen ... now do a low or high angle shot with it...! Its same as if it would be fixed.

Its a trend, and i hope it passes.

LiSkynden: Just asked my wife "do you know what Surface is" ... she satrted to explain what surface means in our language, lol. So I asked "do you know what Microsoft Surface is" ... she said "no i dont".

I Would say Microsoft did their Surface commercing really badly.

Actually Papi61, i think my wife knows who Egon Schiele is was, but i didnt, lol. She also knows iPad and GalaxyTab.

Surface is just not "sexy" enough, for women to know what the hell it is.

Thanks ljmac , thats exactly what i meant.

On Nikon 1 J5 offers 20.8MP BSI sensor and revamped look article (152 comments in total)

I may be stupid but why does the lens have to be that big even thoguh only a small amount of it is showing? This was already in the previous model, but i dont get it.
Looks kind of weird and stupid to have that big "lens" but the actual lens seems to be really small, ... why is this?

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
