Rupert Bottomsworth: Finally, after years of shame, I can go out in public with a camera bag that is cool and one that will give me street cred. I'll be able to mix with the hipsters! :D
Seriously, what a load of marketing BS. I'll just continue to use my Crumpler 5 million dollar bag that I've had for years while laughing at any sucker who forks out dollars for the "Urban Approach". LOL!
@darngooddesign: ah yes, so I did, my apologies. I'm still not a hipster though, no matter which camera bag I use.
@Androole: actually I wasn't the one who mentioned the word hipster; it was darngooddesign who introduced it to the conversation. Please don't attribute something to me that I never said.
@darngooddesign: but I don't have a hipster messenger bag; I have a camera bag. I'm sorry your IQ isn't sufficient to comprehend this basic fact.
You clowns seem to be missing the point. I bought my bag because I liked it, not because I thought it would make me look cool. Is that so hard to understand? It sounds like you all have been sucked in by marketing in general if you think crumpler are "hipster" bags. I'm speaking solely for myself and couldn't care less which bags other people think are "hipster" bags.
@darngooddesign: according to who? I bought my crumpled bag because it suited my needs, and not because I wanted to be a hipster.
@Eric Hensel: No, I didn't buy my bag because of any marketing. I needed a camera bag, so I went in to a camera shop bought the best one for my needs, therefore your assumption that marketing caused me to buy it is completely wrong.
@Androole: So what?
@tkbslc: what are you talking about? Crumpler was never marketed as a "urban hipster" accessory. They are functional, well thought out camera bags.
@darngooddesign: whatever that's supposed to mean..
Finally, after years of shame, I can go out in public with a camera bag that is cool and one that will give me street cred. I'll be able to mix with the hipsters! :D
Why would a camera bag for a mirror less camera be any different for any other camera? What a pile of horse poo.
Judyspur: Hi there. I have just bought the GX7 having upgraded from the GX1 which I have enjoyed using - except for having to have the external viewfinder.
My question is about wireless remote controls. I am assuming that Panasonic's own will be too expensive but all the other ones I look at don't mention the GX7 and have extra bits which attach to the camera to communicate the signal. GX7 has a built in wireless facility so does it need a different sort of wireless remote? And can anyone recommend a decently priced remote which works?
I'm not sure about wireless remote controls for the GX7 but I use my iPhone and Panasonic's app to control the camera wirelessly, which works very well. You can download the app for free from the App Store or Google Play.
Mike FL: "A closer look at Canon's forthcoming PowerShot G3X"?
Did you see the aperture # by looking closer?
Not closer enough?
"Until now the only specification which was confirmed is the camera's 24-600mm equivalent zoom."You didn't look close enough at the article. ;)
Eigenmeat: Waste of time, it's not like you can fit a DSLR into your pocket even WITHOUT a lens.
Instead, they should do something like the "first DSLR kit lense that starts at 24mm equivalent".
Please try to spell lens correctly.
Benarm: nicely dumbed down for the masses
No I didn't. I just thought what a tosser you sound like. :D
Benarm, did you feel superior when you wrote that?
He's doing his best kangaroo impersonation :D
Lanidrac: There is never nothing interesting to read here at DPR.
So are you saying there is always something interesting to read here at DPR?
I don't understand why they've said the lens zoom range is a con/negative. What do they expect? A 7-300mm f/0.95 at this size?
SeeRoy: "...high-end goods designed to appeal to the five senses..."Sic.
Go on, have a good lick.. you know you want to ;)
Will they have specific series of bags for each mirrorless system?
One word; why?
(unknown member): Would have been nicer with a higher speck camera.
Yes, because let's face it, photography is all about being trendy.
Just how good a quality can a 30x lens this size be?
