Whatever you guys do, please don't implement infinity scrolling.

nwcs: Very happy to have the white background be permanent. Any class in usability of human factors or any UX background shows that black text on white background is easier to read. But for those who prefer the opposite, nothing's stopping you.

I have no idea why that keeps on being taught - I find for long reading sessions, the opposite is better.

tom1234567: I relay relay hope more people sign up for the beta Affinity,
and test it to the limits, because Serif is very good at producing updates quickly
and I think after 12mths it will be favoured over Lightroom
Just my opinion

Yea, it looks like more of a Photoshop replacement, which is cool, but I'm more eager for a Lightroom replacement. PS is still good, but LR is ugh.

PedroMZ: One should bare in mind the huge carbon footprint of this type of photography. Fortunately few people can afford it.

I hope you don't own a car then, and are taking public transport wherever you go.

Small drones have much less of a carbon footprint compared to many other activities, it's one of the smaller concerns compared to the others (like safety).

Jeff Seltzer: Enjoyment and recall are two different things. Also, it's one thing to take a few snapshots, it's entirely another thing to practically view the entire experience through your mobile phone. And, from a research standpoint, it's a very difficult thing to measure anyway because of the difficulty in controlling for confounding variables and setting up a proper test vs. control design. Here's what I do know: when I go to a concert or event for my kid, I enjoy taking a few pictures to preserve the memory. However, I find it incredibly strange when others take our their iPhones, and view the entire event on that 3" screen instead of just watching it "live" in front of them. I also find it strange that people in museums take pictures of paintings. Why? Also, food...again, why? What exactly are you going to do with those pictures??

Food is simple - sometimes you want to remember what you had!

yslee1: Bleah, we have a lot of lenses in the 12mm area, where's something wider?

Like for like please; rectilinears are more useful in general, except for winning photo competitions.

straylightrun: A 24mm f/2.8 equiv for $1300? That is madness.

How can Micro Four Third lenses be more expensive than FF?

" pricing and availability have yet to be announced, but we'll keep you posted."

Where in the world did you get the price?

photogeek: What's with the goofy names? Why not call it Zen, or at least Zen Phone? Why mutilate a perfectly good English word? At least in Apple's case "i" stands for "internet".

Because there're a ton of products with the Zen moniker. There's the phone, the tablet, laptops, and small AIO desktop computers.

Edit: I forgot the watch and the cute little "robot" as well.

Ugh, I thought Snapbridge would be a bit smarter - stay on Bluetooth to maintain a connection, auto-switch to Wifi when the volume of data it needs to transfer becomes too much for the Bluetooth connection to handle.

Rest in peace, Michael. Thanks for everything.

With those speeds, why isn't this a PRO card?

Kiwisnap: What is this - "Unoriginal Bag Week"? Lowepro did this ages ago.

Still does not get round the biggest PITA that backpacks have - complete inability to easily and quickly access gear when shooting. They are fine as transport solutions but as shooting solutions they are as much use as an ashtray on a motorcycle.

Side opening backpacks generally are pretty good, at least the ones with large enough access flaps.

The Name is Bond: Unless you're trying to mimic a gopro, then a telephoto seems a better option.

Nothing wrong with a wide-angle, but I think most of us would prefer a proper rectilinear ultrawide.

Does anyone notice that Sony has lumped in their medical division, which makes flow cyometers, with imaging? The medical business had a good year, though how good is hard to tell as they've strangely lumped in Operating Revenue in there as well.

noflashplease: Why Bluetooth? I'm inclined to say that WiFi has a far better range and fewer drop outs. This also creates confusion in the user base, with D750 users complaining. Nikon really doesn't need to expand their software ecosystem, as much as polish their existing apps and software.

Nikon has been on a losing streak lately, with the high price and delayed launch of the D500 and poor low ISO performance of the D5. I don't think that adding app confusion is going to help with public relations.

Bluetooth allows for the main functionality of Snapbridge, which is an always-on connection. Depending on its execution, it could well be a lot less clumsy than the current methods (which always end up with me doing this weird semi-juggle with a phone in one hand and camera in another).

It does use Wifi as well, but the connection is initiated by Bluetooth. BT as a whole is slow in comparison to WiFi's throughput.

Pixel Peter: The SnapBridge appsite only mentions Nikons D500 and 11 third party cameras. Why the H not my Nikon D750?

"First announced as a feature on the Nikon D500, SnapBridge allows photographers with a compatible Nikon digital camera to maintain a connection to a mobile device using Bluetooth low energy. "

Key word: Bluetooth.
