RobertSigmund: Canon needs something very big or it will go the Kodak way! :-D

Not really. They will always have the custom of the sports and press pros, because of the support, the speed, the fact that all their buddies uses top end Canon kit and they dont want to be out of place, and because the top end kit is very very good.
They will always be able to sell their entry level plastic DSLR fare to ordinary punters because - well, its a Canon right? And that what the big guys use! So says the salesmen, and so believes the punter.
I think what may happen is they start to lose the middle ground - the people who know what they are doing and are not buying on name alone, bit on what the camera actually does for them. And many of them are starting to look at m4/3 and Sony.

Outstanding and original work - and all good fun too. Arty without being up itself.
In fact i wish I could shoot like that!

tkbslc: LOL at the "PRO" emblem! :)

Yeah,could have lived without PRO on it, but its a bit more subtle than building the whole thing in white isnt it? Then at least people need to look a bit closer to see that you have spent some money.

On Lightroom 5 Public Beta: What's New article (90 comments in total)

This actually looks good and I shall probably buy iy. I am using 3.6 at the moment. I wonder how performance is? I use an i7 PC with 12 gb of ram with an SSD for boot drive and a separate SSD just for Lightroom and Bridge catalogues, and its still not a nippy as I would like it to be.
Also, I would love to see a facility for adding a simple border to an image. I know you can do it in print module but its clunky.

Tis a shame as HTC phones are just better devices than Samsung. The new One looks amazing, a really well designed and thought out bit of kit that is unashamedly a premium product. I hope it turns out well for them. Competition is good, and I hope their fortunes turn round for the better.

Harry, thank you so much. Having seen your picture I am surprised myself I came in first.

Its not actually that much money. It will be interesting to see what happens of course. Olympus has over the years been paring down its product line as far as cameras are concerned (except in the lower compact end, where they have too many) Sony on the other hand is like Canon - its big enough to be able to have a huge range of products that are very similar. Its a scattergun approach - make loads and all of them will find a bunch of buyers somewhere.
This is not an intelligent approach and it is fueled by greed and fear more than innovation. Can't get left behind! Must put out a new camera that is with $10 of the new Canon/Nikon whatever model.

There is not much markup in consumer and prosumer photography market really. Not nearly as much as there is in medical imaging. Thats really why Sony wants in.

"What we're doing is designing three cameras – a compact camera, a DSLR and a mirrorless – with the same style"

Ooh yay...cannot wait to see the rest of the range then.
Has there been any, ANY even mildly positive words about this travesty of a camera, anywhere at all?

In reply to:

BiggerDiggler: In two years, BOTH Hasselblad and Sony will be bent over a table with their pants down around their ankles by the newest smartphone technology. They are BOTH going to circle the drain, and so will most of the professional photographers lambasting this abortion, when the next generation of smartphones, pursuant to Moore's Law, will magically turn its ignorant and untrained holder into an unsuspecting Bresson shooting a Leica.

In a $39.95 phone with a two-year contract extension.

Frankly, I will be surprised if Nikon and Canon will be around in ten years, given the exploding capabilities of the smartphone, or ANY professional photographer, for that matter.

What Hasselblad is doing here is a thinly-disguised act of desperation. The writing is on the well. Hasselblad should be congratulated for seeing, albeit at the last moment.

Oh yeah. A shiny slab of slippeyr glass with no grip, no buttons or tactile controls whatsoever, and a lens the size of a bugs eyeball.
Of course.

On Photokina 2012: Interview - John Carlson of Pentax article (152 comments in total)
In reply to:

samhain: "What are your DSLR customers asking for?"
1/4 of posts in the Pentax forum are about a Pentax full frame. Is John really that out of touch with the customers or does he just not want to acknowledge the white elephant in the room, which is that FF cameras are the new aps-c and by next year you'll be able to get one for only a couple of hundred dollars more than a flagship aps-c, or a used one for less than an aps-c.
Like it or not, At this point- Putting out a FF is the only thing Pentax can do to draw in Nikon/canon/Sony customers and raise eyebrows in the camera world. Fact.

I agree. No point. Play to your strengths already. If you want full frame, buy a Canon or Nikon. Pentax are having a hard enough time gaining traction in the APS-C market without trying to break into a new one.

The K5 was already excellent. The Mk II is a good move. What I think they should be concentrating on next is fixing their SDM problems. A refresh of the DA* series zooms in particular. They are good optically but their reputation for failure and slow focus speed is holding them back.
