Added as an update to my D300s an so far it seems to have been a good upgrade.

Cannot wait to get mine. It seems the ideal pocketable camera and these photos shown full screen only confirm this even more.

Number 20 I am pretty sure is Wells harbour in Norfolk. It hasn't changed at all!

On Sony DSC-F505 Review preview (2 comments in total)

My model went to the great camera collection in the sky many years ago, but what a wonderful camera it was for that time.

For an entry level camera i would be quite pleased with the quality of these photos.I think they are sharp and well exposed with great detail.

On Pictures emerge showing widely-leaked Fujfilm 'X-T1' article (373 comments in total)
In reply to:

Stephen Scharf: This looks like it will be the Fuji X-camera equivalent to my much loved Olympus OM-1, which will be killer.

I'm thinking I'll have two X series kits: an X-T1 with the zooms, and the X-Pro1 with primes for the classic Leica experience.


OM-1 low quality, I don't think so. It was one of the most popular and sought after 35 mm SLRs in its day.

On Happy Holidays from dpreview article (114 comments in total)

A bit late for Christmas but I am looking forward to your efforts in the New Year. I always turn to your comments and reviews before looking at any new camera or piece of photo gear that I may be thinking about.

Have a three or so cameras such as point and shoots but draw the line at buying anymore of them.I would upgrade my Nikon D300s if it is ever upgraded soon as rumoured. A few years ago had a spell of buying cheap and cheerful digital wristwatches but thankfully out grew this craze. Think I am cured now of such expenditure but if you look in the back seat of my car there does seems to be a lot of waterproof coats on it!!

On Is this the new Leica 'Mini M'? article (369 comments in total)

I suppose Leica makes more money from surveying instruments and other precision optical devices. Cameras are not their main source of income or sales nowadays. The cameras are a luxury item for the fortunate few!

qwertyasdf: Security is also a concern for these connected devices.
I do not wish that footage of me sleeping with my girlfriend's mother's boyfriend's neighbour's cat being hacked from my camera and spread across the world.

But you could get well paid for sleeping with the cat. Newspapers are falling over themselves for articles such as that!!!

shaocaholica: I guess the only sensor option is FT right?

Looking feverishly in my cupboards for the old OM2 body, what a brilliant camera that was in its day.

A very sad event if we lose one of the iconic American company's of the 20th Century
