ManuelVilardeMacedo: Why am I not surprised?

I'm surprised it made it to the market in the first place.

Where did you steal this one from?

Why would anyone buy this over a Sony RX100?

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 Preview preview (416 comments in total)

Wasn't the main selling point of m43 the small size? After looking at this camera, you might as well buy a DSLR like a Nikon D3200 or Canon 650D.

On HDR for the Rest of Us article (199 comments in total)
In reply to:

gl2k: Hmmm ... what exactly do we learn from this article ?
In overall it says : One has to take a couple of images and then carefully process them to get an HDR picture.

Well I knew that before. Otherwise it doesn't tell anything at all. Not even the term "tonemapping" is found.

One of the poorest article about this subject I've ever seen.

So it's all about you, is it?

In reply to:

TakePictures: Read the light, be patient, and you don't need HDR.

and if the camera can't capture the entire dynamic range of the scene, you'll miss the photo.

myosotis: Hi Saleem,

Love it! Could you tell me how you get the green background - very effective


This isn't a single shot but a comp of 2 shots. Look at the base of the vase; there isn't a shadow – a tell tale sign.

evshrug2: The breadth of µ4/3rd's system, born from having two companies developing first-party products (and a few accessories manufacturers making µ4/3rd's mount stuff), is one of the greatest strengths over the other mirrorless systems. I can't tell what this will result in... it might've been cheaper for Panasonic to just buy Oly's photography assets, and probably the investment would not have been enough money to buy out the medical imaging department.

Why would panasonic expand into that industry anyway? Their market is consumer electronics. They might as well go into the ATM Banking market as much as they would go into medical imaging.

Most likely they invested because of their common link, they want to keep Oly alive because "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." Could this be some sort of sentimental move to keep µ4/3rds interesting?

Why shouldn't Panasonic expand in to other industries? If medical imaging is profitable, it would be a wise move by them to do so. They should also ditch their loss making TV division.
By the way, Nokia started out as a paper manufacturing company. Look at their business now. My point being businesses shouldn't necessarily limited themselves to one specific industry.

Boerseuntjie: Rupert it might be a Sony creation, but unlike you they are not biased about the camera that takes the winning pictures, it's about art not what camera brand is the best

Why do you think I'm biased? What a bizarre thing to say.

Is WPO an independent organisation or is it a Sony creation?

Why did some people enter photos of children? The title was "The beautiful eyes of a WOMAN". It's not rocket science.

On Canon launches EOS 60Da DSLR for astrophotography article (227 comments in total)
In reply to:

mahonj: Why don't camera companies make the occasional monochrome camera - no bayer filter, no quarter wave plate, just very sensitive, very sharp images.

It would be very specialist and would sell in small-medium numbers, but if you can build an astro version, you should be able to build a mono version.

Apart from the different software/firmware, can anyone think of a reason ?

Canon sell so many 60Ds and 600Ds, they should be able to run a few mono versions.

Probably because it wouldn't be profitable.

On Lensbaby Edge 80 Quick Review article (75 comments in total)

I'm curious as to who buys lens baby products, because all I've seen from them are cheap gimmicks that have no photographic value at all. These kinds of gimmicky effects can be done in photoshop anyway, so why would you waste your money buying this junk?
