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.

I have a sneaking suspicion this will not fix the fact that the NEX-6/7 have unusably lame viewfinder optics and squish a 16:9 menu interface onto a 4:3 screen. They squished the original menus of the SLTs onto the current models LCDs, so I doubt they care about this either. Weak sauce lazy crap.

/troll

My work here is done.

Just think, if the new lens had IS. 4 stops lower ISO would be nice. Doesnt matter if its the sharpest zoom ever if there is motion blur.

In reply to:

plasnu: Why there is no Samsung phone on the chart? They supposed to be more popular than iPhone. Maybe Samsung phone users are less interested in photography.

Because there is approx 10,000,000,000 models of samsung phones that, in aggregate, are more popular then the 1 iPhone model. Plus people who use the samsung phones tend to be less social and more geeky, less likely to use flikr and other sites like it.
