On article Video: A quick look at the Sony a6300 (202 comments in total)
In reply to:

Artpt: the Sony A 5100 has a touch screen and is a great feature to implement in all their product lines. I wonder why they never revisited touchscreen. Like other comments I'm a bit disappointed in this.... everything else seems great.

Some may not like touch screen, so disabling it would satisfy those individuals...but not implementing on a camera is omitting the those consumers that use touch focus from buying up a great camera line....strategically discouraging a broader appeal in an already dwindling market share.....happy photos to all.

On article Top 5: Hands-on with Nikon D500 (785 comments in total)
In reply to:

Artpt: from a marketing standpoint, they seem to have addressed the needs of the DX and FX shooter at the same time. Not necessarily cannibalizing their own base but growing the existing base and perhaps attracting other customers.

Lots of comments...as I like Sony for most things...the action shots of faster moving kids these days necessitate something more reliable...I believe Canon will counter at some point, but Nikon seems to be ahead today...anyway my interpretation...happy shooting to all!

On article Opinion: Pour one out for Samsung cameras (323 comments in total)

There was a time when Intel had the market share on flash media and decided to leave it in place for a more lucrative pursuit of computer processor chips......

hopefully they will lift pricing controls on retailers so we can get a fair market value for the systems floating around

On article Here at last: Nikon announces D500 (1173 comments in total)

this is exciting for someone who likes working with mirrorless cameras. I'm wondering why not have live View be completely Independent of mirror activity...and add on sensor phase detection...I like the DR for action but mirrorless is wonderful for everything else.

the touch screen is a great feature set...kudos..

In reply to:

Artpt: Wonderful camera but certainly a discount needed given its uncertainty. More concerning is the fact that Best Buy a local store here in the States does not carry that the camera in any stores in any state.

my apologies typo. I'm interested in buying one at a discount.

Still a great camera. I wonder when the video project was approved. Likely ahead of recent news.

Looks like a discount purchase opportunity going into the holidays. Depending on how you interpret this news..

Great point about the cropping and stabilization...subjective impressions of which video "looks" good put aside..... the crop, zoom, stabilize....lots of fun...

It would be good if Olympus can expand its video quality. The images are wonderful and the stabilization helps. It would only compliment to expand video.

On article 2015 Roundups: Fixed Prime Lens Cameras (222 comments in total)

Looking forward to the upcoming and most controversial the "Rounding up the Roundups"....:)

on a more serious comment, the high end round up seems too difficult to rank given such a great batch of cameras.

On article 2015 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras around $500 (272 comments in total)

The A5100 has a limited touch screen, but the most appealing part is the touch focus.

Why not implement this on all Sony models going forward?

rfsIII: If it were up to me I'd add a 600-volt shock feature to jpegs that would electrocute people trying to steal images.

@jnd, well stated....print publishers have no control if one of their images is shared on the internet. If you treat internet photos as free marketing and attach some link back...a least their may be a click or some recognition.
