On Ricoh surfs into action camera market with WG-M1 article (105 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mike FL: By looking the products being released recently, Ricoh is fading away as a brand, as well as Pentax.

Most point 'n shoots are going the way of the dinasaur. Their pro products are having a hard time keeping up with Nikon, Canon, Sony and Samsung.

Can't wait to see the HD video output. I am in the market for one. Yes, the top of the like GoPro does offer great (RAW?) video that can be optimized withn software. A definite pro plus. The Ricoh is much cheaper and in black should look great.

Joseph Mama: Wow, what an inane article. Yes, this TOTALLY proves that Instagram is serious business, cuz ONE dude somehow managed to convince a bunch of fools to pay 150 bucks for a POSTCARD sized print.

Too much money for puny prints. I don't care if he is famed German artist Andreas Gursky's cousin.

grafli: Well this lens is obsolet with the existence of the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8

The Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 is apparently designed for APS-C sensors. We are talking about FX lenses ... aren't we?

Jylppy: Ah, Fanboys in the air! Since it is Nikon it _must_ be better than the independently reviewed award-winning Sigma 35mm/1.4, right? 1/1.4 aperture - who cares! Robust metal construction - plastic is lighter! ;-)

Side by side comparison?

They wouldn't dare make this better than the f/1.4 ...

Thanks for sharing the color pix. I still prefer B&W, even today.

absentaneous: frankly, I've never really understood the point of paying someone to tell you what's their taste.

A professional versus an idiots critique? Who is the critic? Good luck buster.

A person with only a shred of integrity and intelligence can critique. What a waste.

In reply to:

sandy b: Nice camera, great news for the Sony faithful. I like how Sony pushes the technology envelope. Great time to be into photography.

Can't compare to the better Nikon or Canon system... no way.

Peter 111: Overall score A99: 84%
D800E: 84%
D800: 82%
5D3: 82%

"It stands out as the only full frame camera to offer in-body stabilization, an EVF and articulated rear screen." WYSIWYG EVF, throwing away the Hoodman now. Sold my D800 and got an A99, loving it :)

Good luck with the Sony. I love my D800. The Nikon is perfect for exhibition-quality work.

I am starting to find your reviews quite tedious. My D800 is perfect.

jmmgarza: The ACC is only viable for those who take advantage of the multiple programs. I plan in a couple months to upgrade my computer and try their cloud service. I may drop the service or keep it. I currently use Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver and Acrobat. Should be interesting in the cloud.

Maybe I will buy the academic suite after reading all the posts. Thanks.

arry_girl: Two things I feel Adobe adeptly doesn't address:

1). If going the Cloud route, how much will monthly fees increase & how soon?

2). Will your computer be able to handle the latest upgrades? Cloud users have the option to not DL the latest. But when calculating whether or not it's worth it to go the subscription route, I wonder how many factor this into the equation.

Didn't know that.
