On Miggo Strap and Grip review article (85 comments in total)
In reply to:

PhotoNaturally: Just checked out your kickstart page. It looks good. I think it works well with a lot of casual photographers using small MFT or NEX cameras. Cameras, these days can be like a fashion accessory and your product adds to it.

Your video is good. I would like a more detail video showing the operation of the strap with a camera.

All in all, I think you have a good idea.
I'll look at it in more details when I get home. might kick start pledge you
P.S. the animated giff is VERY annoying

Are these amazing Miggos available in India ?

ChefPisi: is this camera made in China like the NEX 6? I sure hope not!

Whether one agrees or not made in China stuff are surely inferior compared to made in Japan!!!

On Fujifilm X20 Review preview (26 comments in total)
In reply to:

GeekyGirl: The trend runs increasingly stronger toward compacts that pack lots of power, and it's a trend that seems to be continuing full steam ahead. The X20 is one of the important players in the field and has been holding a respectable place for a year now. Competition keeps springing up, with more features in ever smaller bodies, so is the X30 just around the corner?

I fully agree with you . All camera companies are taking out too many models too fast!!! We should have time to study and select -

On Fujifilm X-T1 First Impressions Review preview (1657 comments in total)
In reply to:

Onur Otlu: I was also seriously considering the XE-2 before this announcement. I prefer the rangefinder form factor, but the grip on the XT-1 is better.

As far as I see, the main advantages of the XT-1 over XE-2 are:
- Larger EVF, better in low light (refresh rate)
- Much better tracking capability
- ISO dial, drive mode and metering dials
- Movie button, front Fn button
- Larger dials
- Focus confirmation with AF-L button

I wonder if I should still consider the XE-2, or wait until the XT-1 arrives in Turkey (where I live), at least to see the price..

By the way, I have a NEX-6 with kit lens, and I'm contemplating if I should "extend" into the NEX system by buying 1-2 other lenses or switching over to Fuji. The main draws are the control layout, good primes and beautiful color - but I prefer RAW so the JPEG advantages won't be felt so much. Sony also offers full-frame mirrorless, but I think the A7 leaves some things to be desired..

I have the same problem - made up my mind for Xe2- ( I live in India and Xe2 has just been launched ) then came XT1 ( which may take time to be launched in India) - but I prefer a camera which is weathersealed .

On Readers' Choice: Best Gear of 2013 Awards article (210 comments in total)

Great to see PENTAX being recognised at last!!! - Pentax cameras are always user friendly. 7 years ago I had purchased K10D - because of its solid construction and weather sealed body - still going strong . K3 is also very handy and well designed - its very compact with 18-135 kit lens. - Can anyone give me some idea about the lens performance?

saradindubose: FUJI is going too fast. I had already decided on xe1 - then came xe2 ( which unfortunately will be available in India in Feb 2014 only) . Now we have xt1 - I am totally confused - as weather sealed body is surely very convinient for conditions like India - but again it is without a weathersealed lens - makes no sence. Should I go for olympus omde5 or omde1 instead? - but then I am tempeted by the IQ of Fuji camera.

I thought this forum was for discussing about cameras and not for discussing how frugal Indians are ! - and because we are frugal we do not go into recession like US!!!!!

On Olympus OM-D E-M5 Review preview (8 comments in total)

OLUMPUS OMDE5 appears to be an interesting camera - I am specially attracted to its weathersealed body and lens ( which I think is very essential in a country like I NDIA) - that was the reason why I had purchased PENTAX K10D years ago. One thing which is bothering me is its made in China tag. I am an architect and basically interested in landscape and nature photography - I travel a lot . Can I am have some inputs from those who are using OLYMPUS OMD E5?

On Fujifilm X100S Review preview (476 comments in total)

FUJI - I am still in two minds should I buy x100s or interchangeable lens type xe1,xe2 or now the weathersealed xt1 !!. Reviews of x100s is excellent by nearly all. I am from India and my general interest is travel and landscape photography. Will a non weathersealed x100s be difficult to carry around.
