On Enthusiast mirrorless camera roundup (2014) article (300 comments in total)
In reply to:

cxsparc: Very weird, where do I find the A6000? Given its performance is better than the Nikon 1 and at least on par if not better than the M1, and also that for the next part the A7 is supposed to be included, this selection is very odd.

lol.. yeah, big conspiracy.. If they write enough 'best of' articles, they can probably satisfy everyone

Thanks.. I was going to ask the same thing.. Maybe they feel compelled to not mention any of the great mirrorless enthusiast cameras by Sony, since just choosing amongst the sony products requires a little thought, but each on it's own could stand up to any of those listed: RX10, RX100M3, and A6000.. possibly the RX10 was omitted, since it started shipping a year ago in 2013.. possibly the 6000 might have been announced late 2013?

Still, these three remain amongst what would be my top choices.. and the A7M2, while not shipping, might have the promise of being one of the best ever

arvivaz: To the Apple Haters and the Shamsuckers, so sorry but it's a given. Just as the iPhone became the template for smartphones, and the iPad became the same for the tablet, the Apple Watch will most likely end up being the product template for the rest of the smartwatch industry to copy. The look and feel, the level of integration, the ability to do so many things, etc. will influence their product design and content. And Shamsung, which in the past couple years have been trying their darndest to predict the next big thing and as usual lose its pants due to a crisis of vision, will have found inspiration in the Apple Watch. And, like with a bad habit, develop a timepiece that's practically a clone of Apple's product. They are probably hours into the meeting right now measuring screen captures of Apple's new toy.

I already have a watch. It tells time, has the date. Self winding.
What does this give me that I dont already have or need? It's waterproof to 300M - I'll never go that deep, I'm certain..

In reply to:

kwa_photo: Wow....you know what has frozen over! A FW update from Sony!!! Yippee!!! Why just Windows so far??? I'd venture to say that almost 70%+ photographers I know use Mac and not Windows. Strange choice.

that's clearer now. I wasnt sure what you were saying in the comment which I replied to. Thanks. I agree.

They added a feature. There's no mention of any fixes. If you dont want the new feature, dont install the upgrade.

In reply to:

completelyrandomstuff: A Canon and a Nikon, who would have thought.

(whispering) Both Canon and Nikon yet again lowered sales outlook. this last quarter - continuing the trend.. Writing an SLR only article keeps the focus of the entry camera buyer on the name and not the end result.. "I want better pictures?" or "I want to look like a pro" - This article is on the latter.. If the title were: "Get the best picture quality for under $1000" - it would be a different list..

mike winslow: does having a floppy mirror make anything better? good riddance, and we can use the glass on our mirrorless cameras.. lol Sorry if this was supposed to be an SLR only party.. :P

If the srticle were titled: What is the best cameras costing less than $1000, we would have a totally different list wouldnt we?

On Sony Alpha 7S added to test scene comparison tool article (272 comments in total)

comparing the a7r to a7s.. seems less noisy for a7S - unless you download the jpgs, and downsample the A7R in PS to 12M.. Then the a7R looks better in general.. I also noticed the a7R was using 85mm f1.4 lens, and a7SS was the 55mm lens..

where can I lodge my complaints about playmemories wanting to take over my machine? new version today, and it has to waste my time updating the @#$! database.. I only want this because it does a better AVCHD import than lightroom.. it aggregates the subfiles..

On Facebook introduces shared photo albums post (15 comments in total)

I just submitted a bug report on it. create an album, then allow multiple contributors with the privacy scope set to Collaborators only (the only other choice is Friends of Collaborators), then later decide to share out a photo from the album to your friends, then FB ignores the privacy scope of the destination share: eg Share To scope is ignored, and replaced with Share From privacy scope, when share from is collaborator album with privacy scope = collaborators only.

I had to re-upload a photo in order to show it to friends, rather than share it from where it had already been uploaded.

skytripper: Instant photography is like instant coffee: Not too terrible if you've never tasted the real thing.

IMHO, a 'real thing' in photography lets you control at least focus, and has the ergonomics which minimize movement with shutter actuation.. Like touching the screen back versus a shutter button on top. I didnt say NOT cellphones, but most cellphones lack these two things.. After that, having a choice in lenses, IQ approaching Dawes limit, full manual control, a tripod mount, tiltable display, EVF, APS-C or larger sensor, a good grip, lots of programmable buttons, and makes me look like a pro.. Not necessarily in that order, but close..

geez its so tiring to listen to photographers who think that they are artists.. So what if you know where to stand.. I knew Renoir, he was a friend of mine, and you sir, are no Renoir lol..
