EricoftheNorth: I shoot almost exclusively Sony at this point, but Canon does have to get the credit here for zoom assist. Sony has 100% copied that feature. Canon has had that feature for several years now on all their large zoom compact cameras including the G3 X, a direct competitor to this camera.

My annoyance is the prominence it received in the video, as if the Sony engineers really knocked it out of the park on this one.

Um. There's romex without a sheath in that power strip. Is that homemade?

CLEARLY, *insert camera here* is absolutely LEAGUES ahead of *insert camera here*, which is proof that *insert brand here* is totally INSANE and HATES it's their own customers. Good thing I ALWAYS buy *random model* due to my MASSIVELY SUPERIOR INTELLECT.

"Negative comment detracting the photo, writer, and website because of my own insecurities, when I should just keep it to myself."

Am I doing this right?

In reply to:

Mike FL: The price is the same but "The Sony mount does not include the VC image stabilization functionality".

Interesting.

I've taken apart several of these and really, there's not much there. 3 copper coils, three magnets. Maybe a couple bucks? And the accelerometer on these things are about 2mm across now (compared to the 2axis mondo blocks sticking out of the side of old canons) so its a couple bucks. The price difference would be so minimal that it would be a joke. The glass is the expensive part.

DimensionSeven: Bulls*** advertising.

Infrared light doesn't have any color. If it reaches the sensor, it only affects the luminance of the picture.

The problem with the red color cast comes from the uneven spectral sensitivity of the filter in the VISIBLE light range. Get those reds filtered out the same as the colder colors and you have a filter that doesn't have any color cast.

Quite simply incorrect. Tiffen ND have almost 0 color shift, but an IR spike as a result. Some sensors render foliage as red. This solves this.

On article Olympus PEN E-PL7 First Impressions Review (510 comments in total)

I'm just going to whine about that lens on every post related to this camera. The only thing that sells these cameras is the touch screen. The lens in the American market is hands down the ugliest kit lens PERIOD.

Aesthetics aside, it makes the camera far larger than a Sony equivalent, and the Sony has a better grip. O-MD is all I can sell Olympus!! Get it together! EZ lens or go home!

Gotta love it. Apparently this is 'unusable' for printing by most reviewer standards. What is wrong with this universe?

On article Two photographers re-imagine city potholes (147 comments in total)

I don't care about this article. It's fine, whatever. Seems cool.

But.

If I see 'reimagine' or 'rethink' or 're-ANYTHING' ever again, somebody is going to to be indicted.

IN WORD COURT.

In reply to:

peevee1: DPR, you have a mistake in your spec table for AW110, it starts from f/2.8, not f/3.9 like AW110.

No, second. You can't list the same lens 7 times and call it new. I use both the we and tg. Same lens, the Pentax just has shitty processing.

Yeah, this brief is woefully lacking that spec. This makes the second reasonably bright water proof on the market (the wg-3 and TG-2 use the same lens.) That should be highlighted front and center.

On article Tamrac launches rugged-looking photo messenger bags (106 comments in total)
In reply to:

twenty200: I own a Tamrac bag and am mostly happy with it. They make great bags... but look at that clip. It's the worst I've ever seen on any bag. That weird almost triangle shape is way to easy to mis-align when trying to close the bag. It's really terrible. I assumed the horrible clip would be the first thing they'd change, but there it is, years later, on new bags. I have no idea what the people at Tamrac are thinking. I like their bags a lot, but that clip is really terrible.

I appreciate the annoyance at the misalignment issue, but the one handed operation is much easier to open.
