Really! I thought Hasselblad had stopped with this nonsense!

I wonder if these extension tubes will allow the XF 60mm Macro reach 1:1 life-size rather than half life-size that it currently goes down to? I hope in the near future Fujifilm releases a ring-light for Macro work too.

It would of been nice if the tethering software also worked with OS-X, and nice little firmware upgrades for the X-E2...I do like Fujifilm!

Very sad, I hope they make it through!

Nice upgrade, it would of been nice if they had added 4K video capability too.

Finally! I've been waiting years for this.

GabrielZ: Just as I thought it would be: A beautiful looking, overpriced, under-performing piece of kit targeted as fashionistas with more money than photo-sense...still I'm disappointed by Leica, they're doing this purely for the money, and to hell with heritage! You can see similar parallels in the German (and German owned) prestige motor industry.

I said photo-sense not sense. My point being that if the technical performance of this camera was equal to its very high price and brand reputation, I would have no issue with what it costs or represents.

On Canon introduces new $78K 50-1000mm cine lens article (174 comments in total)

I'm not into cine but isn't 78 grand a hell of a lot of money to pay for one lens?

The iPad Air 2 is quite an impressive upgrade, even though I was hoping for an even higher 3x res screen to take it to nearly 400 ppi. But the new laminated display with antireflective coating is a worthy improvement in its own right and seems to solve the Air's only real display drawback - the visual quality out in sunlight and under bright lights.

As for the iPad mini 3, that was a real disappointment! They shouldn't call it the mini 3 but more accurately the mini 2+. Apart from Touch ID and that optional gold finish its the same model as last year, with that sub-par colour gamut display (you can see the difference in colour quality between the mini and the Air) and inadequate performance nowadays of the A7 SoC for this application.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 First Impressions Review preview (1869 comments in total)

I think this camera's 4K video recording capabilities are compromised somewhat by the fact that there seems no facility to plug in an external mic. What's the point of super-sharp video if the sound quality can never be more than adequate.

Really nice! If I were in the market for a new smartphone and not already in the iPhone eco-system, I'd seriously consider this.

On Relonch brings APS-C image sensor to the iPhone post (40 comments in total)

1MP at APS-C - who's the idiot/s that thought this was a good idea? Who will possibly want to purchase this? If it were a proper APS-C at 16MP+ then there just might be a niche for it somewhere, but this! As AngryCorgi says below - a piece of sh...

So no OS-X compatibility then...that's a shame, I was considering one of these packages until I read - 'Both require Windows operating systems'.

On Fujifilm X100T Overview preview (626 comments in total)

I really like this camera in almost every way, but I'd still prefer the flexibility of a built-in zoom rather than a fixed focal length lens, even if it makes it a little less compact. Also as others have mentioned here, an ISO speed dial instead of the exp-comp one would be preferable. Still...a beautiful little bit of kit! I've always had a soft spot for Fujifilms X-series.

After the sensational spec of the Samsung NX1. Reading about the Canon the next day was rather underwhelming. I think they should of released something more radical. Canon used to be a technological pioneer in this field, not so much anymore, and I've been a Canon user for a decade now. The mirror-less designs over the last couple of years have been far more interesting and usually more compact and light weight to boot. I'm going to switch at some point, actually wanted too last year but financial issues prohibited that in the end - but soon none the less.

Anti-climax then. The replacements for the 7D and 100-400 are way-way overdue! I can't believe its taken Canon nearly 16 years to upgrade a major lens like this!

Ahhh the magical unboxing experience. They copied that idea from Apple too. Only with Apple you get all you paid for in the box. No battery supplied with the camera - what an incredible cock-up!

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2305 comments in total)

With this model Leica are really trying to be
the Apple of camera manufactures. The super
minimalist industrial design, snap on cases,
premium pricing (well they've always done
that haven't they) Yet despite being an Apple
fanboy myself, this camera doesn't do it for me. I
desire a Fujifilm X-T1 more!

In reply to:

peevee1: Terrible choices of color for a beach camera. Black will get superhot under the sun very quickly, blue can easily get lost under water. They should be bright-yellow, orange, red.

Incorrect, water quickly absorbs red and light. When a couple of meters underwater blue stands out much more.
