zsedcft: Don't tell anybody, but number 5 is doing it wrong. Maybe they are doing some kind of epic back-header.

Of course you have.

Clearly you are a world expert in back headers so I bow to your vastly superior knowledge. Now that's sarcasm.

It may not be a good picture but the original comment was about football players technique which clearly is not understood. I have seen a lot more football then 4 games in a world cup. By the way the world governing body is Fédération Internationale de Football Association. You might notice the word soccer is missing because the game is called football.

Macist: What's with all of these superzooms without GPS?

Who uses these things, other than people who travel? And unless you travel to the most predictable tourist spots, a GPS is a must nowadays.

I find a memory and map works very well and costs nothing.

Lack of understanding normally means you should keep quiet. Seen many a goal come from that.

In reply to:

onlooker: Some of the comments here like "have the decency to afterwards ask for permission, and if not given, delete the photo right there and then" drive me crazy. It is not about THE human, it is about A human in a given situation. It is about human condition.

This reaction may be partly because this site is polluted by portraits of grinning street kids. It may be because, despite protests, DPR condones sick photo challenges like "A file I would like to punch".

Look at the work of many of the photographers whose names I posted earlier, and you may understand. Do you think Henri Cartier-Bresson should have chased some of his subjects? Really?

Or perhaps it is because you think that someone wants a photo of your face and wants to stare at you later? Then you need to get over yourself. It's not about you.

What are you talking about?

I mean that just because you don't have a law it does not mean that law is wrong or dumb.

leno: But he is not stealing the copyright picture, he is making a copy of the sample tester photo. If he modified it and put a smily face on it nobody would say a thing.

Lets not start name calling. It has been proven I am far from stupid. You are not following the logic. He has not taken the original copyrighted image that is so presous, he only has access to a poor copy of that image. He has taken that poor image which was freely avalible on the internet and modified it. The rule is there is no security on the internet and if you want to keep things you don't put them there. The phographer understands this and that is why he only put the poor copy up.

You don't have data protection laws either

Many laws are dumb but they still exist and you don't get to choose which ones to ignore.

peter12345: I'm really having problems with this. Making a commercial video and telling people on how to make sneaky pictures. Especially in a islamic country where pictures of any kind might be a offense to peoples believes. In the end who knows if the people he is taking pictures of might get in trouble for that.

Having been there the main problem is everybody wants paying.

In reply to:

BubbaHotepUK: Oh no! No touchscreen!Why not Sony, why not? I've been using the Panasonic GM1 recently and touchscreens on small cameras is definitely the way to go.

Still, it looks to be a super camera nonetheless, addressing most of my complaints about the RX100 I & II. Now that summer is here in the UK, that EVF may just swing it my way :)

Say what you like but I like the nice big focus ring around the lens, I notice that it is becoming more popular now on quality compacts. And no I hate my smart phone and my nano.

In reply to:

Tripeiro: Will this really be assembled in Germany or in Portugal like most non Panasonic Leicas? Isn`t this camera mostly a Panasonic assembled in Europe? Regardless this "made in" snobbery is rather ridiculous, China and other places produce very hight quality products, as good or better than those made in Germany, Switzerland or whatever.

Actuly some UK firms have pulled out of China because of the shody quality of products with there name on.

David Fell: Is this just an Android tablet with the slideshow (Galley app) feature? I have a Sony Tablet S, when dropped into the cradle it goes into slideshow mode, so what is different about this product?

If they do not know what android, and I get your point completely, are they going to have wifi. I can't see this flying in the UK.
