Good grief- that is the ugliest camera I have ever seen. :-[
When I look at it- the words "Fisher-Price" come to mind...

On Leica announces X Vario zoom compact with APS-C sensor article (757 comments in total)
In reply to:

burnin: All you need to know about this camera is that the case has a cut-out solely so the Leica label can be seen.

Un-freaking-believable.

Of course.
Why am I not surprised.
This is not a "tool" for photography- this is status symbol.
This is the Rolex watch of the photography world.
What does a Rolex do that a Timex or Casio can't? Nothing.
What can this camera do that a camera 1/4 the price can't do?
Nothing.
It's simply an expensive bauble that screams "look at me" for those with more money than brains, who like to lord that fact over the rest of us peasants.

In reply to:

mrsfixit: I think the removable battery is great.
Most people who have cell phones do NOT have multiple batteries for them. You use the battery that's in the phone until it starts to die, then replace it.
With devices with integrated batteries- you have to toss out the device.
It makes no sense to throw a whole device out- one that may still work perfectly and still suit your needs- just because the battery wore out.

Yes, exactly.
I take really good care of my devices so I get years of service from everything I buy.
My current cell phone is a 6 year old Motorola. It's built like a tank, and I'm on my 4th battery. I'll keep using it until it either dies, or I finally decide to upgrade to a smartphone.

I don't know if all their stores do this- but my local Best Buy has bins inside the store for customers to drop off batteries for recycling.
They take all kinds of batteries too.
Since I go to BB often, I have found this to be a really handy way to recycle old batteries. Too bad all stores don't do this.

I'm looking to upgrade from a Canon G11. The Sony NEX-6 interests me, but now so does this camera.
It has a tilting screen and built-in flash, those are the 2 things I can't live without. I really could give a hoot about GPS or a hot shoe, I just want something better than my aging G11...

Great macro!
You did a very good job with the lighting, isolating the beetle like that with the dark background. It really pops visually. :-)

Beautiful shot.
I love the B&W. The shot is very moody and atmospheric, which is appropriate considering the history of the subject.
Good job!

I love it!
What a wonderful shot, so creative.
I just love the idea of doing a series re-creating famous images. How nice that you have a family willing to share in the project.
Your daughter is lovely, and a perfect model for this subject.
A well deserved win. :-)
