Couldn't believe it, went to pick up a 1Dx (in south-west France, I translate...) yesterday, and said to the sales guy "pity they haven't solved the f/8 focusing and the red focus indicator yet"...
He smiled and answered "they have, it was announced on dpreview this morning!" - a happy moment!
Well done Canon.

And how about the Acer A500, the only one that has a USB connector directly on the tablet that you can connect ANY USB card reader (e.g. a CF one) to or even a 2.5" external USB hard disk drive...
(in addition to a micro USB slot)

On Canon Powershot G15 Preview preview (246 comments in total)

Sad and frustrating to see Canon always leaving one of the popular aspects off the Gxx cameras. Now that they've put a fast lens back on (albeit not really wide enough), they leave off the swivel screen. Are they afraid of making the camera too good ??? :-(

Gaffman: Lytro's just arrived in my shop today (Aus). I love that someone is trying to bring something genuinely new to the market. In its current form it may not set the photography world on fire but it hardly deserves the pasting it's received from most of you.

Light field imaging has potential. Lytro gives average consumers a chance to experience it. Dont hate... Innovate ;)

Gaffman, it is genuinely innovative in the camera market, but unless they have revised their marketing blurb, so many people reading it thought they would get usable JPGs from the camera.
You don't. Posting a LINK on Facebook to your image hosted on lytro.com is the most likely use.
You can't even send the output by e-mail, just a link.

Maybe the host could list all his unstated rules in a message, it would have saved a lot of time and aggravation...

Great lens, where's the swivel screen ???
One step forward, one step backwards, as usual in the G series :-(

Wildbegonia: The only entry up to now is in violation of the rules. I believe it has been shot way before the announcement of the challenge?

I'm amazed that 11 people actually voted, although 5 may be 'buddies'...

In reply to:

zavart: Why can't just Panasonic -or for that matter other makers -make TRUE multi aspect sensor i.e words SQUARE ! After all we're just talking about extra 2mm (7,44x7,44) This would really allow to fully utilize the whole area of the sensor in 1:1 to 16:9 aspect. As a additional benefit You could switch to take photos in either landscape or portait mode without changing the physical position of the camera- just appropiate switch would do. This would be really something with which they could differentiate these types of cameras from DSLR where due to their use of pentaprism and the size of the sensor this kind of thing is impossible to do!

A square sensor would mean a large amount of unused sensor or much larger lenses. Draw it on paper and it becomes obvious why...

So many halos... :-(

Some P&P techniques could avoid them.

Steve Parkin: I used to love this site when it first started. Now its a collection area for all the cynics and know it alls in the photography world. Not to say some good folks aren't still out there. HDR - like it or hate it, is its own thing. It amazes me how arrogant people can be. Because somebody doesn't like something, it should be ridiculed and banned for not meeting their standards of what looks good. There's a ton of art out there that I don't like; but ripping people down or condemning entire types or styles because I don't agree with them? Pretty narrow minded. Do what you love your way guys. If something doesn't work for you, move on. There's nothing wrong with other people doing things outside the box. Are we all supposed to shoot the exact same way?

I think it's simply that many "amateurs" get hold of a few basic HDR techniques that reveal detail and go "wow! all that detail, it must be good". Just like so many see a terrible photo of a loved one smiling and think it's brilliant. The important thing is to remain courteous whilst criticising!
