On Tamas Dezso offers glimpse into post-Communist Romania article (238 comments in total)

Very beautiful pictures, and tastefully edited too.
I really dig the "white" look, even though I'm generally allergic to even the slightest highlight clipping.

paulbysea: Where is the android version?

@basalite:
"Considering that the iPad generates over 80% of all Internet tablet traffic, it is quite obvious which tablet is in people's hands."
...which is exactly my point (apparently you read my post in a hurry).
Since when the masses are always right?

@Just a Photographer:
1. it's "Beginner", not "bigger"...

2. It's obvious that you know *nothing* about Android: see, the best thing is that you don't have to wait for your manufacturer to do that for you! There are plenty of fast and efficient "cooked" roms around and you can even compile your own.
So you can install the latest OS on a 2-3 year old phone, provided that the hardware is powerful enough to handle it.

Never got a virus, BTW.

Oh nothing, just the most powerful, versatile, mind-blowingly customisable mobile OS on the planet.
But it's just for those who want to be able to take their tools into their hand and are not really fans of the need-to-know-basis OSes that have such a widespread following...

Wonderful!

LensBeginner: Astonishing!
How'd he manage to move the frame? camera movement on a slow-moving rig or PP?

Thanks

Isn't 3D printing a feature that would make much more sense in a 3D CAD?
Isn't PS supposed to be an image editor?
What am I missing?

Foto21: D40x had a focus motor, and realistic image rendering and a battery that lasted a while. Since then, Nikon has decided to hobble its most portable dSLR size, not by making openly amateur, but by having it have pretenses to more while being enough a ripoff that you keep it past the trial date.

Meanwhile the oily D600, and mammoth D7100 (with other rumored problems), prove why Nikon bodies have yet to recover from the tsunami of 09.

Fanboys, give me a break. I'm still waiting for an afforable Nikon that doesnt suck. I guess I should buy a D610 since I can't get a good Nikon body for less than that price.

He's referring to the Thai one, were many hi-tech factories got submerged and months worth of production of hi-tech stuff got ruined.
Prices of hi-tech goods (including hard disks, that I remember of) soared for half an year.

On Hands-on with the Panono panoramic ball camera post (112 comments in total)
In reply to:

Virvatulet: Could be an interesting niche product for special use. But only if it had some active means, like mass gyros, to stabilize its movement (especially rotational) during flight. And accelerometer optimizing algorithms to choose the right moment for shutter release for the required exposure time.

Without those I doubt this will have any impact whatsoever; could keep one parents' garage busy though...

Well said, I suppose this would involve some calculations...
However, while the force of the throw is unknown, both the mass of the object and g (to some degree) are known.
A more accurate value of g could be inferred with a GPS module, perhaps...
Variables like wind, temperature and atmospheric pressure add some complexity to the mix....

Caerolle: The Nikon Df: the camera of choice for the manly, self-assured old dudes in the Viagra TV promos.

Please, Ferrari is about uncompromised quality.
Nikon is just consumer electronics.

In reply to:

cheddargav: Why review this camera? It's a novelty and the ones buying it won't care about performance, they'll know it'll be reasonably capable but mainly it'll be bought for the nostalgia it invokes.
As others have said, it would make much more sense to have reviewed the Pentax K3 by now.

@InTheMist:
Not everything that many people like is good.

This one's just a novelty. It will come and pass, as all the vogues do.

racketman: Wonder when it will be available in rip off Britain at £1069, they always just change the $ to £ as do Canon and Apple.

Also usd = euro...

In reply to:

expressivecanvas: I was about 99% sure I will be moving to a Pentax system to replace my obsolete Olympus system but if Tamron is going to be passing on making lenses in Pentax mount from now on, I might need to reevaluate. I'm not implying that I think this particular lens will be a 'good' lens, but Tamron does indeed make some really nice, fast lenses. If they are dropping Pentax, I definitely need to reevaluate systems...

...which is a pity.
This one would be nice to have on a Pentax.

Funny to know in just how many way things can go wrong...
Mine was just a guess of course (the most common gotcha in the install process)

Sirandar: Every time I read Nexus articles I feel a little sad.

I like the design, style and price of the Nexus phones and generally like Google but the lack of microSD precludes me from ever buying these phones.

For photography 32Gb is OK but people like me also use a smartphone for music and perhaps video. Syncing is so passé as you often don't have the music you want when you want it, and it is a PITA. On-line services are not even close to being there yet ( but may be eventually).

If the 64GB models were widely available and not outrageously priced I might live with no microSD, but nothing can really compete with a 32Gb Sam S3 or S4 with a 64Gb microSD card if you actually use your phone as both a camera music player and have a moderately sized collection.

PS I use Dropbox and Google on-line services and they are in no way replacements for local storage, especially for music.

@dpmaxwell
1. You're assuming that you'll only have photos on your cellphone. In real life you'll need as much memory as you can for photos, documents, videos/movies (yes, I've watched them also on a cell phone).

2. You're assuming perfect internet coverage at all times (which is something everyone who tries to sell you the cloud always takes for granted).
Sadly it's not always the case.
Plus I don't want Google to know that much about me.

3. Even if you don't need the memory for videos and photos, you'll need it for the apps.
Just think about it: if you want (perish the thought!) to install a videogame for the occasional R&R break that could easily set you back 1GB.
Put a couple of readers, a couple of dictionaries, an office app, a couple of photos app, unit converters, scientific calculators and such on top of that and you're done.

So, yeah, Sirandar is totally right!

You need to have Bridge installed in order to install Camera RAW updates.
