Philip Young: Good idea for condoms. stick'm on your glasses while you get undressed in the dark.

Just a precaution, in case if her husband returns I'll still have time to jump out the window before he sees my face.

Who the heck wants to print a 3x4" photo a $0.65 each, especially with other people shooting 20 photos of their stupid cats to your printer when you're not around. If they can make it 2 cents a copy, maybe then they'll have something. We all know about the ink and photo paper scams, so give it up. What do glossy prints at Costco cost? 3 cents each? There's a reason why people stick to their smart phones for photos, they're FREE, no matter how many photos they shoot. OK, so I have over 350,000 photos, how much will that cost me, and how long will it take to sort and find them if they were paper format?

Put the motorized gimbals on the CMOS sensor itself and then you might have something. Better yet, make a ball-shaped CMOS sensor, then create matching algorithmic pattern software that will compensate for all gathered data and you'll have perfect stabilization. Wait... God already invented that, it's called your eyes and its even in stereo and 3-D.

I think a zip-up bikini sounds much more enticing than grama's bra.

JohnH4260: A fool and his money are soon parted.

Obviously, your answer would be "no". Then go buy her a $50.00 camera. It's all up to you. But it tells me how tight you are. You're the one that is shallow in that case.

If you were a billionaire and you daughter or girlfriend wanted one, I guess you'd be too cheap to buy one for her? I don't think anyone who can afford one (or 100 of them) can be easily regarded as a fool.

Mssimo: Who cares about the lens..did you see this: The Makeup menu screen is packed with cosmetic choices such as Cheeks, Eye Shadow, and False Eyelashes, so that users can easily choose and apply effects. In the Eye Effect menu, users can not only change eye color, but make eyes appear bigger. In the Spa menu, users can make subjects faces appear smaller, and add effects such as Lift-up to make faces look even more beautiful.

You can not put makeup and eyelashes on your guy friends :)

It can make my eyes bigger? What else can it make bigger?

Your photo is so sharp that I can see the feet of both your flash tripods in the reflection from your goggles.

In reply to:

Anfy: IMHO it holds remarkably well against the bigger sensor Sony NEX-5n even at 3200 ISO.

I'd say spend that extra $1400 so it doesn't go to estate taxes when you kick the bucket. You only live once, or if you do reincarnate, you probably won't come back enjoying photography in the next life.

lester11: Sold my Panny GH2 to go to the Pentax K5 (weather-proofing, don't do much video), perfectly happy. Wife has the Panny G3, she's happy. The Oly E-M5 samples at 3200 and 6400 just astonishing in comparison, check out the "Thursday" and "15" date on the watch. Bugger. Two E-M5's now on pre-order...

Because he is selling his on eBay too and doesn't want someone else to drive the price down.

Wholly Cow! I'm going broke trying to buy every new camera that comes out. I am still playing with my new N1-J1, Ricoh GDR-4, and Olympus XZ-1. I have the Nex-7 on order and waiting for it to be delivered. Must admit, it's a lot of fun playing with these toys.
