Peter Evans: @DPreview
Could you possibly find an interviewer whose speech is at least in some way intelligible?
@Barney Britton Would you be so kind as to find an interviewer who speaks clearly?
MrPrime: These are nice cameras but they are simply too expensive.
Remember the film days - low cost cameras with decent lenses, light weight, no batter charger to worry about. Entry price was low because nobody figured a lifetime of film expenses into the equation. And the short lifecycle of digital cameras means a $1000 compact camera is worth half that in a couple of years. Too expensive, waaaaaaaay too costly. A smart phone is a must-have and if it comes with a decent enough camera the step-up cost for the cameras shown above is simply laughed at.
These compacts have to be good enough to replace an SLR to get long term traction, and they aren't there yet. But they are getting closer.
There is no need to sell or replace a $1000 camera after a couple of years. One might want to, but there's really no need, as the IQ of the current cameras is already very high. My last film point-and-shoot was a Minolta Freedom Zoom for about $200. If you consider savings on the film and processing, a $1000 camera will have lower cost of ownership after about 100 rolls of film. If you shout about 2 rolls every month, it's only about 4 years of ownership. My first digital camera actually lasted 7 years before it got stolen, otherwise I probably would still use it.
I wish they would allow to shift the sensor for real...
Peter Gordon 01701: So why would anybody buy a D610 body with only a few hundred dollar difference? I am thinking I should sell my D610 and get the D750 as I like the articulating screen and the wifi plus other features.
Because when you are on a budget, a few hundred dollars could be a significant difference?
DrLogic: No stabilization for Sony? The extra reach is useless without stabilization... And this is a very large range kit lens - the single IQ compromise range somebody takes on a holiday to replace a whole a whole bunch of lenses, so they aren't likely to be using a tripod. Doesn't make sense.
The specs only lists FE mount, no A-mount. So no Sony IBIS cameras can mount it.
chiane: Why do 95% of super zooms start at 18mm?
Because 28mm equivalent field of view is a common stop among the focal lengths. Adhering to it makes it easier to assemble lens collections that do not duplicate focal lengths.
pleytime: Why would anyone buy a camera, other than a cheap pocket one, without a viewfinder?
Because not everybody cares about viewfinders
This one should be spelled "cannon" rather than "canon" :)
Vlad S: The only consolation is that none of the people who stole his work would have paid anyway. So it's not like he lost sales... But yeah, as a reflection of morals in general the story is really disheartening.
@Albert Silver: and how is that an upside? Are you going to buy his prints?
And what is the up side of this fame? It seems that there has not been any so far.

That was pretty inspiring. I will definitely look for new opportinuties. It was especially helpful to see how he placed the camera in relation to the subject, especially for the wide angle shots.
Can anyone post a link to the class chat room? I can watch the video, but can't find the chat.
Prairie Pal: Take away the orange jumpsuit and these are nothing. Take away the caption referring to "astronaut" and you wouldn't know what the H they are supposed to be.
I don't think any of them need cations, at least I didn't bother to read them. The suit – well, that just shows you that it was an important element of the story, doesn't it?
Can the lens be shifted or tilted? (or both)?
Bill Rees: Apparently, we still haven't moved on from the incessant whining regarding the Adobe's subscription. The haters need to move on.
The value and the continuity of access are perfectly legitimate topics to discuss.
What a bold move by Canon...
chiane: Why are we saddled with an industry full of point and shoot sensors and marginal image quality, or we have to buy like a $2000 dslr housing? There's not much in the middle between pro and soccer mom.
In the middle there are Dicapac style bags that you can use with any camera you own, and that cost between 40 and 70 bucks. They are not ideal, but I used them, and they are a good way to bring your memories from a vacation.
I wonder if there is any advantage to machining the shell out of a solid block instead of casting it? Is it just for bragging rights, or is there something else to it?
