See the New York Times article: "ZPM Espresso and the Rage of the Jilted Crowdfunder, What happens when a Kickstarter project fails to launch?"

There are no guarantees.

Remember, years ago, when Japanese companies were admired for having superior quality and quality control? That era sure is gone.

Another example of why it's wise to be a late adapter.

The made-in-China Likea is has a much lower price. :-)

On Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview (487 comments in total)

"heavy-handed noise reduction limiting [jpeg] detail" seems to be a common complaint about Sony cameras.

For Nikon, Sony makes customized sensors with preinstalled oil spots. :-)

On Olympus Stylus Tough TG-4 to offer Raw capture article (147 comments in total)

Toughcams are great for taking candid photos at the beach. That way, when you get beat up, your camera won't break. :-)

Small-sensor superzooms sell, because they can do something that cellphones can't, in a small package.

intruder61: More soccer mum cameras, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Soccer mums/moms get all the attention. Nobody cares about lacrosse dads. :-)

On Red introduces 'Weapon' camera with 8K sensor option article (104 comments in total)

Great for Youtube cat videos. :-)

$700 for a 1/1.7 sensor sounds like a tough sell.

300mm-equivalent is short compared to other zooms. The upside is that it may have better optics than more extreme super zooms.

On Hands-on with Canon's 'not-coming-to-USA' EOS M3 article (551 comments in total)
In reply to:

justmeMN: The USA is where mirrorless cameras come to die, and be dumped at deep discounts. :-)

@gLOWx: The claim that, in the USA, people buy DSLRs because they are a status symbol is just over-the-top stupid. Here, no camera is a status symbol, with the possible exception of the iPhone.

On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1200 comments in total)

Samsung understands that DSLRs have "excellent ergonomics". That's why they copied them.

BTW, at least according to one source, the previous DJI Phantom 2 is what crashed on the White House lawn.

On Opinion: Why the Canon XC10 is a big deal article (810 comments in total)

"If we buy into the idea that photography is about the 'Decisive Moment', what are the implications when we gain the ability to capture all the moments in the scene?"

Seriously cool, for lack of a better phrase.
