On Miggo Strap and Grip review article (86 comments in total)

Innovation, finally.
We really need innovative ways to secure small, one lens mirrorless cameras.

Sometimes I wrap mine in a bandana. Because there are no simple, small and cheap solutions to buy. Not kidding...

Enough with those bulky camera bags that scream to be stolen...
Tamrac and all those, take notice. Be creative.

On Sony Alpha 7R Review preview (813 comments in total)

Dpreview should ditch the score and awarding system on these reviews.

Just too many comments are about a camera getting/not getting that score/award and why/why not.

Why is the guy playing with the camera in the last shot wearing white gloves?

In reply to:

lacix: Don't understand all these negative critics! You guys must be blind or something wrong with your monitors!
Fujifilm X-T1 is beats all the other cameras at ISO 6400

True, assuming ISO 6400 from Fuji is the same 6400 from other manufacturers

On Tamrac launches rugged-looking photo messenger bags article (105 comments in total)
In reply to:

arhmatic: All this camera bags are just screaming they are camera bags.
Just waiting to be stolen.
Terrible style.

Just put your camera in a pouch, then throw it into any bag, so it looks like any random bag.

If it's a larger SLR, then it might eb tricky, but with mirrorless and 2-3 lenses, you can fit it into any shoulder bag. And all this "protection" worries are non-sense. You are not in a war zone

@t3 - tell this the the guy in Medellin, Colombia, when a gun is pointed to your face. Sure, you are watching the camera...

Eric, in many parts of the world, US included, your camera bag is a target. Period.

Just wear any regular bag, limit unnecessary padding, limit your bulkiness, and you reduce the chances of being robbed/stolen.

Thoughts: It is shocking that one of the best camera review site- DPR doesn't have a forum for Hasselblad...

How many Hasselblad users are out there?

How many of them are interested and available to contribute?

As always with Hallseblad, I am here just for the comments.

"If Leica can re-brand a Panasonic and sell it for double... then Hasselblad can re-brand a Sony and sell it for triple.... brilliant."

Marty, it does.

Zeisschen: I love the design!

Why?

Are those two screws on the front plate really holding anything?

Just for cosmetics, to emphasize the "tough" idea?

On Olympus OM-D E-M10 First Impressions Review preview (619 comments in total)
In reply to:

pixelpushing: I think Olympus is diluting their product line unnecessarily. Unless this is a replacement for one of the prior models (it doesn't appear so, with the shuffling of features), they're just going to muddy the waters.

A new generation sensor and moving away/up from 16MP is going to be needed, soon.

This is what I was thinking about Fujifilm.
I kept posting this remark, I was always shut down.

Fuji has FIVE lines now.
Olympus has three OMD and some PEN lines... Not sure how many total. Probably a few too many.

On Pictures emerge showing widely-leaked Fujfilm 'X-T1' article (373 comments in total)

So far, great!

My 2 cents, Fuji.

- Never go full frame
- Don't go plastic
- Strategize somehow so bodies, lenses too, maintain resale value. My old X-E1 kit, one year old, is only worth half now.

And it definitely has more sunny days per year than London or even San Francisco, CA... Having lived in all three places, I am positive about it.
