Interesting....but will have to see how Google will respond since it has been a while that I have been using their services.

If MS could work with Adobe for integrating Onedrive with Lightroom....then I will be more interested.

On Post-Photokina polls - Tell us what you think article (198 comments in total)

I have chosen 1inch as the minimum just by giving thought to the RX100 and Nikon V for their abilities. For image quality alone, I would have chosen 4/3 sensors as minimum.

This is a serious camera compared to the GM1. I have seen many tricked out LXs throughout the years. It is also not comparable to the GX7 when taking lens quality alone.

Now that the LX100 is out with a fixed lens m4/3, I would love to see Panny with a prime lens m4/3, with the same philosophy of the Ricoh GR or the Sigma or a m4/3 sensor in a CM1.

Notomb: Lost opportunity, FF right choice. Insane Samsung market. 1500 dollars for a APS-C camera?? Who buys? Pentax k3 user? Canon-Nikon user? A7 user?

Nope. The specs are high end all over (except the appearance)....and to me makes the new 7D less awesome. I just hope the NX1 gets an in-focus hit rate at least same of the 7D.

Finally, putting up a fight against Sony! It is all good but Sony seems up to something in January.

rfsIII: Yeee haaaa!!!! Finally, the phone of my dreams. As a person who shoots events from time to time and needs to upload photos to client websites while the event is happening, this camera will solve a lot of problems for me.

I can only dream of that amount of money for a non serious camera. Yet, very good effort from Panny as this better than Samsung's.

gxtoast: There still does not exist on the market a dual 2.5" HDD combo that allows configuration in RAID 1 (mirror). Large capacity drives make mirroring much more cost effective while enabling simple and solid fault tolerant storage.

I'm also really surprised that we haven't seen similar large volume, yet slower, SSD mirrored storage using low cost TLC chips. Slower compared to regular TLC SSD speeds, but much faster than 5400 RPM 2.5" HDD speeds.

Weird. Particularly so when considering the rising desire to have fault tolerant storage, especially for portable use where HDDs are susceptible to movement and being dropped or bumped.

Go figure. No one was doing mirrored portable USB last time I checked a few months ago.

I agree but a hard disk covers more customers than an SSD since it is cheaper and with at least more than twice the space.

With my experience, it is hard for me to fill a 16GB SD card in a day in RAW. With 32GB and 64GB cards becoming more affordable, I would not need to delete/move the files elsewhere from a trip or shoot and majority of us have more than one card. The external drive would be for redundancy in case of data corruption or lost card/camera.

I hope there's an option not to delete files.

Sony, here's my idea. Fixed (zoom/prime) lens, APS-C sensor QX. Touchscreen LCD at the back. Camcorder ergonomics.

zodiacfml: Though the decision benefits many, it is baffling.
I wonder how they got the section, "a photograph taken by a monkey"

If he only made prints of these photos and not upload it in the internet, who owns the copyright?

If he uploaded it with his watermark on it? The world will never have a copy of that photo without the watermark.

If he lied and said he took those pictures, I would never have an idea that the monkey did it.

Do we know if he did some post processing here because the second photo looks perfectly aligned and centered; as though a sculptor slightly enhanced an ice made from snow or enhanced a tree branch to make it look something more man made or artistic?

Works of nature in simple words, things that is not unique or is accessible to others. We cannot copyright a snowflakes, spiderwebs, the DNA sequence, and etc. A photo will never be a work of nature or animals since they don't have a use for it, they cannot own it, they cannot create it without humans.

I don't agree but let's say that is the case.

The photo has little value until the photographer marketed the photo (true or not) it as a selfie. He could have defended his ownership as having spent time, money, and effort to market the item to increase its value excluding the expense of setting up the circumstances to make it happen (intentionally or not).

Another way of looking at it; there's a monkey trainer who trained his monkey to take selfies. Who would own the photos?

Anyway, this is nonsense. The whole thing is just about making money from the photographer's mistake.

On Sony a5100 First Impressions Review preview (594 comments in total)
In reply to:

Treeshade: Why would beginners pay $200 more for a5100 instead of a5000? For 4 more MP, extra ISO, or the AF speed that no beginners could perceive? The only "consumer" upgrade is the built-in flash.

a5000 is priced too well for another consumer level Alpha to complete.

because this is new regardless of specs... and who says this won't be bought by more serious users such as those who would consider an RX100.

Direct link | Posted on Aug 18, 2014 at 06:33 UTC

I don't know why they still bothered....as this doesn't look any better than any previous iphone. The specs also doesn't make sense, unless....this phone would be priced similarly or less to the Galaxy S5.

Wait for the Sony Xperia Z phone... with the curved sensor. That should put it performing near the large sensor Nokias.

Valiant Thor: As I observe people and society I am 100% convinced that the smartphone is the worst invention in the history of the world, bar NONE. It has turned a once observant and interactive society into pathetic, electronic addicted, anti-social zombies who walk around with their glazed empty eyes affixed to those crappy little LCD boxes glued to their hand, their thumb frantically pushing stupid little chicklets around the screen with the look of a meth addict on their face and mortal fear in their mind that they would accidently miss one non-essential, meaningless message from an emotionless fellow zombie doing the same thing. They roam the malls dressed in jackass attire of distasteful, offensive, or sports related t-shirts, baggy silk exercise pants, bright Nike clown shoes, tattoos, and all the while radiating themselves with dangerous levels of packet-data microwave energy. The corporate illuminati puppet-masters must be laughing their billionaire butts off. Other than that, nice phone!

As though it didn't happen with television....nice job though.

I could not believe what I'm reading and see. After giving it a hard thought, these specs are plausible considering this device will have Android L which won't be available until the end of this year.

This device might be announced mid of 2015 and available in the holidays of 2015.

The curved sensor to be out soon is possible since they gave a hint that the curved technology is not yet possible with larger sensors. The f1.2 lens is a little bit harder to accept but this could be possible with the curved sensor and the Z3X may start with f1.8 and the f1.2 the best possible estimated performance for future devices.
