In reply to:

Mssimo: 2.5 billion dollars for a 2MP camera? Really NASA?

And $2.5 billion is about what the US Government now spends (wastes) in just one-half a day...

Eyepiece projection on an 11" SCT, but the seeing was lousy...no processing, single image.

One commenter said it right: If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys.

If you think wedding photography is easy, go for it. If you've never tried it I think you'd see that it is extremely demanding and you must be able to capture a "moment" because it is literally there for just an instant and then it's gone.

I think it's almost like people complaining that a basketball player who gets paid millions makes way too much, because they too can shoot and make a basket, and have done it before a few times!

On Variation Facts and Fallacies article (231 comments in total)

Thanks for a good article! For me this has helped clarify and reinforce what I already suspected, but did not have the time nor the equipment nor the skill to determine for myself. I guess I'm lucky that for me, so far, all my lenses have fallen into the "acceptable" category for sharpness and performance.

"Cannot find camera nikon_cpp7100 in index file (/reviews_data/boxshotindex.xml).

Note: This debug message is visible only to admins or in staging."

But it IS visible to me LOL and I'm not an admin, and I'm not in staging!

For me the Panasonic G3 sure looks good at all ISOs against the Leica M9 which costs over $6000 more!

On Sony launches pair of Full HD and 3D digital binoculars news story (76 comments in total)
In reply to:

Photato: Finally! the "Digital Viewmaster" is here
Now, if only they can make it a fixed focal length and much cheaper that would really take off.
Interesting how they are marketing this as "Binoculars", so it isn't perceived as a big stereo digicam.

Absolutely - the tiny objectives and high price will ensure that value and performance oriented consumers will pass these by. Already existing are good image-stabilzed binoculars with quality optics, these by Sony do not appear to bring anything new or value-added to the market.

On Street Photographers test freedom to shoot in London news story (186 comments in total)

The desire to suppress other people's freedom lives in the hearts of many and is never far from expression and action, is it? If some people had their way we'd all be living in a police state a la SS and Gestapo, all for the public good of course. Of course. We all must give up some freedom for security, that's it! What, you don't want to cooperate? Let me see your papers, please!
