On KSM1 in the Home Again challenge (14 comments in total)

Looks like one of those eternal moments you see in a war journal. The word 'Moment' being the optimum word with this photograph. Superb timing. Well done :)

At last, an update to the f2.8 lens I bought with my E-P1.

That lens was super sharp, just a little slow focusing, due to the lens moving,

Superior build quality and f1.8 also, cant wait to try this out.

Well done Olympus:)

Well look at the bright side, the $3000 for the photographer will be a lot cheaper than the divorce !

Personally I'm really delighted about this new product.
Delighted for Olympus and the new business it will create for them and delighted for all us photographic enthusiasts out there.
I'm sure it will be a fun camera to use and will no doubt create its own cult following like the original OM did.
Congratulations Olympus for doing what you do best:-)

J Parker: Leica obviously has its admirers -- and its critics. There are definitely many cameras that take comparable images at a fraction of the price. But how many of us who perceive Leica as being arrogant haven't turned up our own noses at people we feel use inferior equipment (i.e. those who use compacts instead of DSLRs)?

Ironically, Magnum Photographer Alex Majoli (who has used both Leicas and DSLRs) shot stories for Newsweek and National Geographic with neither -- he used a 5 megapixel compact that you could find on ebay today for about $100. It was with this point and shoot that he won both the U.S. National Press Photographers Association's Best of Photojournalism Magazine Photographer of the Year Award and the U.S. Overseas Press Club's Feature Photography Award.

Whether the camera costs $10,000 or $100 -- it's probably a good idea to develop our skills to the level where it doesn't matter which camera we choose.

Absolutely bang on Mr Parker. It always made me wonder whether Picasso would have painted better if he used really expensive brushes....Don' t think so :)

Very nice, but I must remember, next time I visit my local camera shop, not only do I purchase a lens cloth, I must remember to buy the furniture polish as well :-)

On Nikon V1 and J1 - hands-on first impressions article (245 comments in total)

My word look at all of the complaints about the size of sensors and speeds of lenses and unfavourable apertures.

I thought it was all about the moment, framing and the capture.

I wonder if Rembrant or Picasso made the same critique when some new paint brushes appeared on the market?

Just a thought!

So many ranting people.

Why not wait until it comes out, pick one up, try the functions, press the buttons, zoom in and out, then take a few pictures, then download, view themm then make an honest description on what you like or dislike.
Then if its rubbish, then say so, not slag it off until then.
Stop moaning!!!!

Just imagine attaching the adaptor then slipping on the 14-24mm f2.8. What a wacky and fun combination. Tip top Nikon :-)

In reply to:

Ozonation: What a bunch of complainers on this forum! Have ANY of you even tried the camera yet? It's barely in anybody's hands and practically the whole lot of you (with some exceptions) have dismissed it. How about a parallel? Nobody asked for a minivan 30 years ago and many thought it would die a quick death but it become one of the most useful vehicle configurations ever.

For some of us who travel and value compactness, even a small dSLR is too much. I love my D3s for sports and high impact occasions, but there is a reason why technology is designed for different scenarios. I can see something like the Nikon 1 being very handy.

THINK about it people...

I' totally agree, I think its rather smart to be honest. Thumbs up for Nikon ;-)

DesertLefty: A hot shoe for my SB-400 (and SB-700) sure would have been nice.

Anybody know if it, at least, act as a CLS Flash Commander?

Ive just seen a youtube video and there is a dedicated flash you will be able to buy for it. It tilts just like a SB600/700. But no dedicated hot shoe though. Looks pretty cool :-)

I wonder if Nikon are aware the last time a V1 came to England was in the shape of a flying bomb, lol!!!!

Alot of unhappy sounding people about. Personally I can't wait.

I have a Nikon D200 and lugging it around all day is a chore, so I bought a GF-1 for daily use, but sadly with the EVF attached, it is still a little bulky.

Nikon have listened to folk and built a camera with a viewfinder built in, Hoorah.

And to top it off, I can buy an adaptor to fit all my wonderful Nikkor prime lenses. Bring it on.

Look forward to the reviews

Looks like it could a be fun second camera to take out for the day instead of my dslr.
My GF-1 is my current 'take anywhere' camera, but with EVF clipped to the top, it can by a little awkward size wise.

I like the idea Nikon have included a built in EVF. Makes a nice inexpensive change.

Look forward to the reviews :-)

On Panasonic DMC-LX5 firmware v2 studio shots posted article (41 comments in total)

Congratulations to Panasonic for the recent firmware updates.

Its great to see commitment to products that have been on the market for a while.

I've considered the LX5 as an addition to my 4/3rds set up as an even smaller take anywhere camera for a while now. I think I might invest. Thanks

Razgriz: Just another 'Viewfinder less' carbon copy of another manufacturers product.

When will these Corporations realise that real photographers prefer usefull additions not omissions. Have any of there R&D people ever spent a day outside in the blazing sunshine and attemped to manually focus whilst composing the image on a bleached out reflective surface, obviously not.

We all know that the real reason is just pure manuafacture cost cutting and technology sharing.

The Sony NEX-7 has made the first real attempt to alter this, by building in a proper 'useable' viewfinder.

One Corporation launches a product, and the rest just rush to copy it.

Sorry Samsung, already lost interest, even before I have seen it in real life. Now explain that to your Marketing bods!!!

Don't get me wrong I'm not 'Bashing' Samusung, its just the trend lately it make cameras that look identical, and to be honest they are.
I'm just frustrated that potential isnt always seized by these companies.
