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 article (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.

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

Whenever I heard or read the name Hasselblad I automatically thought of the 500s, the 200s, the Flexbody, the XPan... Of great studios and respected photographers... Of astronauts in the moon... And now they have almost ruined all those memories. What has been seen cannot been unseen.

At least they made me laugh.

Oh, I see by your comments that you actually LIKE this monstrosity. :baffled:

Apparently it works for Lecia (think re-styled Panasonics).

Two of the best Leicas ever.

Because now collectors have another model to, well, collect.

Antonio Rojilla: Between the Sony EX100 (mainly for the sensor) and the Fuji XF1 (partly for the sensor, partly for the host of features and the nice design in a smaller package) this camera is DOA.

@NotTarts First, you already own a ZX-1 so you are going to defend the XZ-2 no matter what. I respect your decision but you don't need to trow us you post-purchase rationalization.

Second, what do try to prove with a close-up shot?

@NotTards It's sad that that's the only thing the Olympus can be proud of.

@logbi77 You are right. I wish companies were more creative with names... It seems this is the year of the X: RX this, RX that, G1X, GX1 (!), XF, XE, XZ...

Jokica: Anyone remembers Canon EOS M now? Nikon 1?

Hey, no offense at all! :) And I actually agree with you and find the Canon and Nikon mirrorless systems of little interest. They are great, sure, but right now personally hard to justify against m43 and NEX (specially with the new lenses, I really like the 10-18!).

In reply to:

photofan1986: Well, I am a bit torn about this one. As a technical achievement, it's quite something. And history will certainly recall Sony for being the first non-Leica manufacturer that made this possible, ie a full frame in a compact camera.
But from a purely practical point of view, I'm not sure. A camera with no viewfinder (the overpriced optical external thing showing no info is a joke, sorry), few manual controls, and a fixed 35mm lens...all this for 2800$ seems like craze to me!
Also, I don't really see the point of a 24x36mm sensor in a compact camera like this. The new APS-C sized sensor give excellent image quality even at high ISO (6400 on a Fuji X-Pro 1 looks terrific). Also, with a lens like the Fuji 35 1.4, depth of field control is quite easy already. The full frame sensor will give approximately one stop advantage in noise compared to a APC-S, but at the expense of a much bigger lens and a much, much more expensive sensor to produce.
Really, what's the point?

tl;dr
