I am still waiting for a 3, 4 or 5 color black and white only inkjet printer. I am not holding breath. I hate wasting all that money on cyan, magenta and yellow inks.

On Ricoh surfs into action camera market with WG-M1 article (108 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.

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.
