On Samsung Galaxy Camera Hands-on Preview preview (189 comments in total)
In reply to:

Kuturgan: NO, Samsung, NO!!!!
IT is not the right way for development! Do like Sony! Give us a range-finder with EVF!
This ugly galaxy camera is a total disaster! Ergonomics is a total sh*t. And it is too big for mirrorless system.

The world doesn't revolve around you.

CDBayy: Wow so much negativity any time a new concept shows up that isn't a flip-up mirror in a box. All these negative comments probably come from the same change-averse luddites who rejected digital imaging when it came out - I still remember the chorus of "I will never give up my film camera!" LOL! What will all you haters do when Canikon launches a "connected camera?" It is the wave of the future. Why you would not want a direct link from your bulky DSLR to the rest of the world I cannot understand.

This is the camera I have been waiting for.

You remember them whining about digital? I remember them whining about autofocus and even autoexposure.

They should hire you.

Donnie G: If it's true that there's a sucker born every minute, then it's a certainty that somebody will buy the thing, just not me.

Of course, if you don't like it everyone else is an idiot. Killer logic.

In reply to:

Cameras do 1080p do we still need 1080p camcorders: Considering the size of it.. I might as well carry a separate smaller P&S camera.

Well, considering that this is actually what I do (carry both a phone and a compact), this Samsung is more than welcome: still smaller and lighter than both devices together, it'll take only one of my pockets instead of two like now, I'll have to deal with only one battery/charging system, only one interface, only one memory card... Sorry you can't see the benefits so maybe you really need to start carrying two devices to see them.

Scott Birch: Larger pixels would be much better for light-gathering than wider apertures. Imagine how high an ISO you could get away with on a 5Mp 1" sensor. Or a 5Mp FF sensor, for that matter.

@HowaboutRAW

In most cases, downresizing the large file to match the size of the smaller one negates any noise advantage of the latter (and this is exactly what anyone dreaming of a 5 MP should do). So with more MPs you get either more resolution when needed AND same or better noise when needed.

Absolutely right. That's why for example current 24 MP APS-C cameras have waaaay worse quality than older 6 MP ones. Oh wait!

On Magic Lantern enables Canon 5D Mark III Raw video output news story (139 comments in total)
In reply to:

scrup: If Canon really wanted to stop Magic Lantern, they could. But in their interest they don't as it creates another market of users.

Take Apple Iphone. If Jailbreak never existed for it, I don't think it would of taken market share as it did.

Playstation 1. It didn't really take off until it was hacked.

" it would of taken"

Is that a thing?

Gabor Szantai: I don't get some comments...

The full box was about £600-650 when I bought, I paid £200 for upgrade and now I will pay this previous amount monthly.
I am paying for an online service instead of offline software. So what?

My dentist doesn't work for free, I have to pay in the supermarket, my customers pay me for photography and retouching.
It's a tool. A carpenter has to pay for his tools, a photographer wouldn't?

There is a free alternative picture editor, GIMP. Enjoy.

You completely missed the point of those comments.

In reply to:

Alexhou: I just saw a comparison between D7100 & NEX3N, including 100% view and high ISO noise, seems NEX3N is better....

Congratulations to both.

On Panasonic unveils DMC-GF6 with Wi-Fi and NFC capabilities news story (53 comments in total)
In reply to:

Antonio Rojilla: So more or less a Sony NEX-3N clone with a worse sensor. Way to go Panasonic. The only thing they have is more lenses, but you know, most people buying this camera won't ever bother to put on it anything but the kit lens.

- M43 has more lenses...
- M43 has better lenses...
- The OM-D EM-5 is curently the best mirrorless...

But what has that to do with what I said?

At least Rob Sims can read...

tesch: No place to strap skis, board or snowshoes. People who design these outdoor packs need to go outside. There's more to being in the backcountry than carrying your camera gear. I'll pass!

People who post these comments need to read the articles.

gl2k: Nice that Panny gives customers a feature that Canikon users already enjoy for many years now. LOL.

And Canon already went with radio control. Panny will offer this, and a powerful rugged weatherproofed flash, in 5 years. Luckily.

This is what I did just for fun (uncompleted, and I have less skills):

Yes, it's digital. Just without LCD and as mechanical as it could be made, with a hand-charged battery (that's why there are film advance and rewind levers, also to cock the shutter). The never-fails back-up or for those that like me love the convenience of digital (no darkroom needed) but miss the old beauties (FMs, OMs...).

ManuelVilardeMacedo: Olyimpians, fear not: Sony is only interested in the medical business. Olympus will be no Minolta.
On the other hand, Olympus had a major quality leap when they started using sensors made by Sony. Not really a bad deal, actually...

Olympus will be Pentax.

On Accessory Review: Tamrac Zipshot Tripod article (94 comments in total)
In reply to:

Karl Gnter Wnsch: The fixed length of the legs make setting up that wannabee tripod (it's none by my book) impossible on terrain that's not perfectly flat. Even the slightest angle of the ground would make me fear for the stability of the rig... Why do you give this a rating of 4 stars when really it deserves one at maximum? Because as far as tripods are concerned you're probably better off without - at least then you won't have to deal with the rig toppling and destroying your gear in the process...

If it has three legs, then yes, it's a tripod.

I agree on the limitations but this tripod is better than no tripod when you need a tripod, so I believe it deserves more than the one start that you suggest.

On Hasselblad responds to Lunar criticisms news story (628 comments in total)

If they are after collectors or wealthy people at least they could have take the guts of the NEX-7 and put them in a mini 500c replica, of simple lines, square, with the LCD on top like a folding waist level viewfinder, with a fake film back where you could put an extra battery or keep a small flash or some memory cards... It would be a real homage and not just using a great name like Lunar for the sake of it. That's something I would be interested in even if I couldn't afford.
