Cool video. Cool kayak.
"Oh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz?" - Janis Joplin
I would settle for a free Chevy Colorado pickup truck. :-)
In their next version of this software, the zebra will automatically be turned into a unicorn.
CameraLabTester: The winners here have one common trait: WiFi and NFC.
The Canon EOS M series and Nikon 1 series are remnants of the cold war era and should be frozen and the brand companies should let it go...
For the month of April, in Japan (BCN Ranking) the #1 best selling mirrorless camera was a Canon M3 bundle. Just think what would happen if Canon actually tried. :-) Unlike Nikon 1, Canon M got the sensor size right. Nikon 1 technology will live on in the Nikon DL line, so at least it wasn't wasted.
Samsung still makes cameras. One of their refrigerators "has three built-in cameras that take a photo every time the doors close". Good grief...
belle100: Looking forward to those Nikon DL18-50, DL24-85 and DL-24-500 cameras soon.
The Nikon DLs were "delayed due to the serious issues with the integrated circuit for image processing". The reopening of Sony's factory won't help that problem.
Nikon states that "the new release date has yet to be determined and we will announce the information as soon as it is decided."
Yes, the November release date comes from Best Buy's web site, not Nikon.
Nikon's recent products appear to be very good.
(Their DL line is delayed, but should feature best-in-class autofocus speed.)
Sony's sensor division (Devices) was a big money loser last quarter, so I guess they will have to sell it off. :-)
junk1: Awfully short for macro work.
This is a 45mm equivalent lens. There are numerous 50mm equivalent macro lenses on the market, so it's not that different.
This is a "constant on" ring light that is activated with a button on the side of the lens, not a flash.
That looks cool/fun.
In today's news:
GoPro's drone is delayed, and their stock is down more than 40% this year.
weathersealed: IF Nikon DL camera has the auto focus working and better sensor than one series that would maybe rekindle my interest in the toy camera dept.
Yes, Nikon's web site states that their DL line has:
"105-point phase detection AF, which excels at acquiring moving subjects, or 171-point contrast-detect AF, which allows extremely accurate focusing even in dark situations."
"1.0 inch type 20.8 MP backside illumination CMOS sensor"
Girly Men can't handle a camera that's this big. They have to use mirrorless cameras. :-)
I bought a Likea brand camera from a Chinese online retailer, and it just wasn't the same. :-)
Rickyk: so what's the latest expectation dates for the Nikon 24-500 and family?
"The new release date has yet to be determined and we will announce the information as soon as it is decided."
"Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III (coming soon)" -DPR
Nikon DL24-500 (coming eventually)
It might be worth the wait.
ThePhilips: Oly & Pana too report (minor) increase in sales. Fuji reported positive results last year too. Thus, the mirrorless has (financially) happened and is here to stay.
Olympus just reported that, in their last quarter (Jan-Mar), sales of their mirrorless cameras were down 11%, compared to the same quarter last year.
Since this web site also covers smartphones: Sony's Mobile Communications and Devices divisions were both money losers.
Neodp: One of the real lessons here is there's a place for disposable and not disposable stuff.
Another then is how we overrate (over price, over buy) the disposable.
A maker doesn't need to drag their feet to create a false sense of non-change. They need to make something that will last longer; by allowing every upgrade possible and not lesser, not more disposable and left behind technology.
The problem is they don't do what is best for you in the balance for what they change to do it. An imbalance. They're getting away with murder; as they increasingly go the way of the i-Phone over priced disposable.
It's the wolf you feed.
Technology is not the bringer of the disposables. It's the freedom from it. That depends on you.
I haven't disposed of my 2003 Canon G5. It still works.
