Olympus should make one of these. All it would take is a minor modification of one of their endoscopes. :-)

On Sony Australia releases a3500 with new kit lens article (143 comments in total)

Another mirrorless camera with DSLR Envy. Since you can't beat them, pretend to be them.

Sony lists the a3000 on their "Alpha DSLR Cameras" web page, because their goal is to deliberately mislead uninformed customers.

(The even worse a3500 isn't available here, yet.)

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview (488 comments in total)

Don't most superzoom buyers shoot JPEGs?

"JPEG images are over-sharpened and over-processed" should disqualify this camera from getting a Gold Award.

No, Kodak isn't reborn. Now, it's just a hollow brand name, owned by an obscure company.

On Am I missing something here? article (626 comments in total)

Nikon could have saved R&D money, and significantly improved IQ, by making an APS-C mirrorless camera instead of their Nikon 1 line. Nikon already uses excellent APS-C sensors, and will have to improve their DSLR Live View AF anyway.

The Nikon 1 uses a small sensor, but the body is the same size as an APS-C mirrorless camera. I suppose Nikon 1 lenses are smaller, but still...

On Chinese government orders Nikon to stop selling D600 article (228 comments in total)
In reply to:

Donnie G: Nikon's corporate bean counters are showing us how to turn cost cutting into a "death by a thousand cuts". If Nikon doesn't find a partner outside of the camera business to merge with soon, then they may not survive long term after all. Apple or Google might be interested in acquiring a camera company, and Nikon would be a good fit for either one of them. Well, that's my best guess anyhow.

@Scottelly: Nikon's current stock price is US$17.80, down from a 52 week high of US$27.50. Nikon's fiscal year ends March 31st, so we will know the truth of the matter pretty soon.

The "Conclusion - Cons" list contains significant flaws should have prevented this camera from getting a Gold Award.

DPR should stick to writing excellent reviews, and forget about giving an Award at the end. Awards have become meaningless.

The perfect marketing slogan for Nikon to sell this in the USA:

I don't doubt that China's motives were political, but their complaint was valid nonetheless.

The Conclusion - Cons list was pretty short. DPR needs to work harder, to find more Cons. :-)

Many consumers have complained of dust buildup on the image sensor of the Nikon D600 camera, CCTV said on its annual 3/15 Gala news programme on Saturday."

@sandy b: DPR's article mentions both the D600 and D610. The news item I posted mentions both the D600 and D610. I can point you to a reading comprehension course if you are having trouble finding one. :-)

The Nikon 1 V3 is smaller than an Enthusiast DSLR, therefore it must be better an Enthusiast DSLR. After all, smaller is always better - the only thing that matters is size. :-)

In contrast, the Nikon 1 V3 gets a WTF (what the f***), rather than unboxing photos. :-)

justmeMN: "This could be a cultural difference, of course."

No brand of mirrorless camera sells will in North America and Europe. We don't have a "if it's a little smaller it must be better" mentality.

@howardroark: Bigger isn't better, but a combination of price, performance, and features is more important than size.
