On Ricoh announces medium-format Pentax 645Z article (160 comments in total)
In reply to:

nikanth: Pentamirror viewfinder and not a petaprism viefinder?! Is it because larger viewfinder is anyway brighter and doesnt benefit from pentaprism?

According to Ricoh's web site it has a "trapezoidal prism". http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/products/645z/feature/03.html

On Hands on with the Pentax 645Z article (660 comments in total)

This camera can't be any good, because it (gasp!) has a mirror. :-)

On Pentax K-3 Review preview (491 comments in total)

A Gold Award for crappy JPEGs, and mediocre AF?

Oh well. The review is very detailed, so people can draw their own conclusions.

By unpopular undemand, not available in the USA. :-)

On Canon PowerShot G1X Mark II real-world gallery article (132 comments in total)

It's a nice camera, but it costs more than an SL1/100D or a T3i/600D.

Smokymtnhiker: It can't record 4K internally so it requires additional equipment? That's a joke, right?

@Tone Row: From Canon's USA web site: "The EOS-1D C is an HD video powerhouse providing cinematographers 4K video capture in a single unit, with no need for external power or recording devices." (It has an "18.1 Megapixel Full-Frame CMOS Sensor".)

In reply to:

venancio: a 12mp pro gear... what if canon or Nikon come up with an 18-24mp counter offer, would this put A7s as yesterday's dream? anyway, there's too many new gears coming within this year that i'll just wait a little longer before making a move, but boy, can sony really churn up a lot of new sensor ideas! many is a lot! : )

Canon already has a Movie DSLR with an 18MP full frame sensor, their 1D C (Cinema EOS).

I'm not part of the target market/audience for this product, so it can't be any good. :-)

On Shockproof flagship: Olympus 'drops' new Tough TG-3 article (106 comments in total)

Freezeproof to +14F? Here, that's "short sleeved shirt weather". :-)

(This winter, it got down to -23F or so.)

In reply to:

Marty4650: The new Olympus marketing strategy is now clear.

They are moving to the high end of each market segment. OM-Ds rather than Pens.... Stylus cameras rather than cheap P&S models. They are doing exactly what they need to do to survive in a mass market that is being eaten alive by smart phones.

I think they are making good chioices.

My understanding is that both travelzoom/superzoom and toughcam compacts sell well, so this dual announcement makes sense. (You can't superzoom your cellphone, and cellphones aren't tough.)

On Nikon to offer D600 replacements if 'spots' continue article (175 comments in total)

Spots are a feature, not a defect. They make your photos unique. :-)

It's nice to see children "being human", rather than being glued to a screen.

(Time for me to go for a walk in the park, with my cell phone turned off.)

What's the DxOMark Sensor Score of the camera that took these pictures? That's what matters the most. :-)

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 (144 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 (492 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 (637 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...
