lacikuss: Incredible how engineering and miniaturization has been advanced by Sony:

Sony A7II Full Frame weight: 556gr

NIkon D750 Full Frame weight 750gr +35% more weight in same sensor

Olympus OM-D EM1 M4/3 frame 497gr -11% less weight half sensor size
I believe the Sony 7 line is comparable in size with the 35mm SLR Cameras...

this is great because it just proves that it can be made.

The funny thing for me is when the first Sony NEX line of cameras came out without IBIS and I skipped them basically because I could not imagine using a camera without IBIS, everybody made up these excuses for Sony saying it's impossible to add IBIS to these cameras because of sensor size and now Sony has showed us, you do not need a M43 sensor for IBIS, glad they did, it will be the first time I will seriously look at these cameras.

On Samsung NX1 First Impressions Review preview (913 comments in total)

I don't think this camera will win over anyone soon, Samsung is loosing out bad to Sony, they are not even on top of Korean market share.

On Zeiss launches Loxia full frame lenses for Sony E-mount article (272 comments in total)
In reply to:

Archiver: Interesting that Zeiss have determined the Sony full frame E-mount system to be viable enough to create a whole new lens line, and that the market for manual focus lenses with declickable aperture is also enough.

They do work in crop mode ;)

On Sony announces Alpha a5100 compact mirrorless camera article (106 comments in total)
In reply to:

OrdinarilyInordinate: This just looks like a Samsung NX3000/NX300M hybrid to me in a Sony package (shape and compact power zoom lens of the same range like NX3000, hybrid AF and touch screen like NX300/NX300M and many other Samsung versions, and 180 selfie screen like NX300M/NX3000).

That is because everything is made in China ;) and companies like to save money and rake in profit, but the more expensive stuff is made in Japan, or so they say...LOL

Lets see the Samsung NX10 or Panasonic GH1 copy was introduced Jan 2010, it was Samsung's first knock off, BTW Panasonic GH1 was introduced March 2009.
The NEX-3 showed up in June 2010 with the Samsung knock off NX100 showing up 3 months later in Sept 2010, so who was copying who again?

Boerseuntjie: Wow A7s is amazing at ISO 25600 JPEG's

And yet DPreview said the NX30 does not do anything all that good or better than any of it's competitors :(
Only 77% "Silver" so I guess they must have missed something...LOL

Blake Cook: I have packages sent to my office several times a month. Frequently Canada Post just deliver a pick-up notice, adding a day to "overnite" delivery.

Complaining about theft will just generate a union grievance.

Check out Kijiji Mississauga there must be some good deals on Lenses...LOL

Boerseuntjie: Canada Post is the example of how "union" workers kill a good thing, it's happening to all Unionized corporations around the world, I personally have had a few bad experiences with Canada Post and tend to avoid using them.

@ Richard Murdey If they were privatized they would not face the problems they face now funny how a Japanese resident know nothing about Canada ;)

On Flickr launches image marketplace initiative post (37 comments in total)

I use to contribute to the Flickr collection with Getty.
Getty has recently kill that venture with Flickr and all the contributors of that venture were migrated to Getty Images Moment. so your info is wrong there is no ventures between Flickr and Getty anymore.
Here is the official letter Getty send me and it clearly explains that they are no longer working with Flickr.

Today we are announcing that we provided notice to terminate our existing agreement with Flickr. Our original agreement reached its end, and while we continue to be open to working with Yahoo!/Flickr, we have not agreed to a new agreement at this time.
