  • I see a lot of complaints about the tilted horizon. It's possible that the photographer intended it that way I supposed, but since I don't want to waste the time looking up the rules, I'm wondering...

  • "And those same workers could have been the employees of the private companies running the same parks if there were no government grab of the land. They would have also earned more, because they...

  • It isn't really a theoretical thing, it's pretty simple science actually. It is the same sensor in Panasonic's 16mp M43 cameras with the outside 25% or so cropped out. So, lens quality were equal,...

  • What I have trouble reconciling is the physical lens size versus max aperture. The lenses on the 1 series, take the 10-30 kit for example, are much larger than the equivalent fixed lenses on 1"...

  • I think the replies are a little harsh...I see OP's point, but the argument isn't very well made. First, you don't just throw away a camera if you upgrade, an RX100 I is still worth over half what...

  • I want to love the X30, It's got a great retro rangefinder appeal, solid ergonomics, Fuji image processing (which I still miss after years of moving away from their discontinued professional DSLR...

  • If only it were ruggedized and environmentally sealed well... If I could breed this and the Nikon AW1 together the sibling would be the perfect outdoor, carry everywhere camera.

  • I'm certainly for for added layers of bureaucracy or red tape. Reminds of of the hoops I have to go through to shoot in Navajo Nation parks, but I wouldn't discredit the valuable work many federal...

  • I get that part, my comment was the part about risking losing AF by stopping down to gain sharpness. Stopping a lens down to a smaller aperture for whatever reason has no effect on a camera's...

  • To me, a lot of the answer to that question will come down to lens optical quality. The size/price combination puts it more in competition with mirrorless with kit collapsable zooms, which tend to...

  • To me, it's not so much "does it have an identity?", but rather is it a widely appealing identity? the 7D has over the years became a bit of a niche camera, and I can definitely see the...

  • I would think Fuji might jump on the 1" bandwagon. This camera is considerably larger than the R100, yet has less than half the sensor area. I know that is one thing that allows the faster lens,...

  • The photographer has really gotten a lot of additional exposure by the battle with Wikimedia. I suppose this may be one of those situations where everyone wins...

  • Maybe he should hire the monkey as an employee of his photo company...

  • I'm not sure what you are talking about Lassoni, cameras always autofocus at maximum aperture (at least for still photography). It makes no difference to AF whatsoever what aperture you have set,...

  • It's certainly true that other large predators can be just as, if not more, dangerous. I think psychological difference stems from two things: One, the unseen. Most shark attacks come from sharks...
