kimchiflower: Good grief! That's a disproportionately large chunk of glass on that camera.

some mirrorless lenses just cannot be smaller. considering the faster aperture of this lens i dont think it looks bad at all. I'd take this over sonys 55-210 anyday of the week!

I bet the IQ on this is going to be great(if the 18-55 shows us anything)!

photogeek: Still no GPU acceleration. Epic fail.

but it would still help. But you would have to have a pretty old pc/laptop to have problems handling lightroom, or one that you just really need to clean up.
Also, if you at all are insterested in photo editing , you would need a pc with a dedicated GPU, or the intel 4000, the 3000 is sucky. But i have a 4 year old laptop that breezes through lightroom 4.

Isit13: Too bad it is not a constant F4, that way the price would have been more in the affordable amateur territory, and smaller size.

That 100-300 f4 is a Great lens!

Eigenmeat: Base on Dpreview's studio comparison, the D7100 is still less sharp than NEX7

well its not the same sensor as the nex7.

In reply to:

BorisK1: Yeah, $199. Plus the $36 activation fee.
Why does everybody fixate on the initial price?
You're buying into a 2 years contract (at least $40 *per month*) plus a mandatory smartphone data plan (another $20 *per month*). Plus all the little "whoops" additional fees and charges, like $.50 if you happened to send or receive a text message across the Detroit river.

What happens when the contract is up and the cost of the "subsidised" phone is paid 3-4 times over? Whoppie - you get a choice: Keep paying the same fees every month or cancel the contract. Or pay another $199 to get a newer model "subsidised" phone.

But the good news is, the 2-year contract is a perfect match for the phone's 1-year manufacturer's warranty. Isn't it?

T mobile kinda changed that whole model.....you might want to check it out, with there CONTACTLESS model, you can get a subsidized phone every year. also, you dont even pay the subsidized price up front! its added to your phone bill.

On iFixit scores HTC One dead last in repairability post (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

Deleted pending purge: Quick to produce and difficult to repair means it's been designed for junkfill and replacement. Unless there is some proper and mandatory recycling process arranged, many valuable materials will be lost, and many dangerous materials released to the environment. Nevertheless, no advertisement ever will point out the fact.
Like anybody cares. All that matters is sell. Future generations may care about future problems. :-P

?? Where did you come up with this from?? The only person thats going to throw the phone in the garbage is the customer.
I can promise there is a "proper and mandatory recycling process arranged", just like with every other phone out there.
Assuming things just makes you look like an ass.

On Samsung Galaxy Note II camera review post (82 comments in total)
In reply to:

slyster: Can we have some comments about the display? AMOLED screens have been notoriously bad when it comes to colour accuracy. Is this better than usual? How does it compare to IPS displays?

You can calibrate your screen if you unlock and root your phone.
Its tuff to do but can be done

Direct link | Posted on Mar 23, 2013 at 01:17 UTC

This will sell well.
It has good AF(ALL cross type),great touch screen(via the M), new sensor" new AF system also includes a new Hybrid CMOS AF II sensor", And alot of really good lenses.

Body only for a just announced camera is only $649. Not to bad.

Its build quality is most likely better VS the T4i due to it being more compact.

Looks like they lost alot of weight by loosing the DSLR battery. only 380 shots is mirrorless area.
Now if they could just make a pancake 30mm F1.8-F2 for crop, this camera would do really great.

On Hands-on with the Samsung Galaxy S4 post (135 comments in total)
In reply to:

JTF: I was hoping this review would have touched upon whether or not the noticeable green color cast of the S3 PenTile screen has been improved with the S4. It would be nice if that effect was minimized somehow.

The screen cast can be EASILY fixed. This phone will be unlocked before its even released and with that, any kind of screen problems with me easy. Franco's kernels usually have a screen calibrator built it, nice and easy.

On Samsung launches Galaxy S4 superphone post (108 comments in total)
In reply to:

Combatmedic870: This is more like a S3s vs a S4.
Not enough has really changed.

Not really a game changer. Sooooo yea...they went the apple route.

Lar's the faster processor isnt really needed, The S3's is plenty for Anything "right now" and the distant future. The screen may be higher res, but is anyone really going to notice? Your not going to hold the screen 4 inches away from your face. The way faster processor, in real life is it really going to be noticeable(maybe the gpu)?
Now the upgrade to ddr3 may be noticeable in real life.
I mean SOON these will be able to replace a PC, but the proper software isnt there yet. JB isnt even optimized for quadcore/octacore processors.
Phones are growing up faster then the software can keep up.
Its a nice phone, I have my galaxy nexus and an upgrade soon, waiting. I dont think i would purchase this. I enjoy my on screen buttons. JB was made FOR on screen buttons. i dont understand the need for hardware buttons any longer.
Anywho. its nice, just not all that big of a deal. If they would have included an S pen with a wacom processor. THEN I personally would have been VERY VERY interested

Now if they made an app and adapter to make your smart phone do the same thing, that would be cool. That what i thought it was when i seen it on the main page. (iphone)

On Hands-on with Photosynth for Windows Phone 8 post (34 comments in total)

Lars,

Try it with a tripod, see how it work with that?

I did that with the photosphere for android and actually came out with some pretty dang good results.

I know that using a tripod isnt going to be anyones thing, BUT, you should try everything you can to get the best IQ and merging possible before posting a review(IMO of coarse). :)

Atleast then it would take any user error out of it.

If you did, then that apps is not....so good.
