On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7 flips for selfies article (356 comments in total)
In reply to:

AngryCorgi: This selfie nonsense is getting out of control. First off, people don't act the same way with legitimate cameras like they do with idiotic cell phones. Second, the average consumer of these products is NOT a 13 year old girl.

Camera industry: knock it off! Your market analysis is lying to you!

"Pro tip"?? Hahaha...thanks, chum. Glad I could get a "Pro" to weigh in on this. I guess that settles it; a resident narcissist has spoken!

I didn't say the target audience wasn't 13 year old girls, I said the average consumer is not 13 year old girls. Just because you target something with a feature, doesn't mean you succeed. I have NEVER seen a 13 year old girl with a $600 camera trying to take "selfies".

On Fujifilm releases XQ2 premium compact article (55 comments in total)

Newly developed lens? Pretty sure the optical performance of the xq2 = xq1. They didn't change anything worth mentioning about that lens.

Sounds like a great deal. I'll wait and see what the fly in the ointment is. But it looks like a really great deal right now.

On Fujifilm announces XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR lens article (295 comments in total)

It better be near perfect at this price. Canon's 17-55 2.8 is sharp, has image stabilization and costs $300+ LESS than this.

fresnel = crappy bokeh (see DO "donuts" from Canon lenses)

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview (1229 comments in total)
In reply to:

AngryCorgi: As usual, Canon puts out another camera that get's spanked by a 4-year-old Nikon in the IQ department. When will they think about either (a) purchasing Sony's sensors or (b) partnering with Sony in some way to improve their sensors to be competitive with what Sony has been producing for more than half a decade??

BarnET,

Nikon D90 dynamic range > Canon 7D2 dynamic range...Nikon is 7 years old and was their SECOND APS-C camera that was a result of their partnership with Sony. I wasn't saying 4 years = more than half a century, I was implying that it's actually worse than just a 4 year lag. Canon has improved their LV AF, for sure, but they seem uninterested or incapable of improving the DR of their CMOS sensors.

Wait...I thought they closed their studio! Someone step on this slug and put it out of it's misery. Hassleblad has become a total joke.

What a poor performance in terms of sharpness all over the frame. The edges are poor and the center is average at best. Leica is fast becoming a joke. Gone are the days where you paid for a lot for Leica quality and were rewarded with great optics. This thing blows.

On Canon PowerShot G7 X Review preview (435 comments in total)
In reply to:

AngryCorgi: Success = what happens when Canon uses Sony sensors instead of the nonsense they fab.

Yes, many of their little throwaway cams use tiny sony sensors. This is the first time they've used a reasonably large sony sensor and the DR performance vs their own g1x sensor is night/day.

Success is not limited to a financial evaluation, fmian. Performance/Value of product, in this case, is a success.

photo nuts: US$750 for a slow zoom lens... hmmm...

Canon has IS and pentax zooms of late have a track record of spotty calibration/centering. Nikon's 16-85 is crazy sharp, is built like a tank, and can be had for $620 at best buy. Pentax always overpriced ALL of its lenses.

Direct link | Posted on Oct 30, 2014 at 07:27 UTC

Pentax pricing is always subject for a good giggle.

On Photokina 2014: Samsung stand report article (71 comments in total)
In reply to:

PHOTOJOE55: Samsung may be a little late, but they catch up fast! They could have taken a few more images of their Model...

It's easy to forget! 6 years passed between the archaic R-D1 and the modern Samsung APS-C with no real intermediate camera to span the two concepts. The R-D1 was sold for 3 years with no only very minor hardware/software updates. Time moves faster now, it seems. 2004 seems like ancient history and now mirrorless cameras are being released left and right by every manufacturer.
