Gee, I didn't know people came with serial numbers. Is this another dastardly NSA plot?

Although Cavada says that nobodyhas ever been prosecuted for copyright infringement in non-FoP countries, the FoP law is there as a convenient stick for the backs of photogs should the need arise.

It looks as if a vast campaign of civil disobedience is in order.

Unless you have a sync mount you get drift even with a small scope, but this is impressive even so.

On Lily Camera flies itself and follows its owner article (153 comments in total)

Consider ye the Lily..

Non-removable battery, good for 20 minutes, 2-hour USB recharge. Great for Junior losing his teeth on the half-pipe but I guess we can forget about Paris-Brest-Paris.

It's a toy.

A filter to remove bug-splats from photos through windscreens would be even better.

HakanL: Linnaeus Tripe? Really? That's his name?

Can one be rude when speaking of the dead? I always thought that rudeness was an interactive affair.

Anyway, that *was* his name, and what's more he was English (according to the MMA) so tripe the substance was involved. His family were possibly offal handlers.

Why not screw a lobster to it and call it an "homard"?

Eclipses are wonderful enough already. No embellishment required.

justinwonnacott: so tired of non existent kickstarter ideas . . . show me the one you have wrapped and ready to go or get off my doorstep.

Good one, Lars. You can then go to the bank and say "Look, I got $10,000 on Kickstarter, it *must* be a good idea."

The sample pics show perfectly why you're better off without.

On 3,200MP LSST camera gets construction approval article (257 comments in total)

And in 15 years we'll be saying "of course, it only had 2015 technology - only 3200 Mp! That's smaller than the average pro SLR nowadays."

Anyone else sick of reading about selfies?

Still, if they make the cameras sell better...

The ones Nikon is replacing could well resurface as factory refurbs.

Ah jeez, just after they'd fixed the airbags.

On Panasonic releases trio of compact superzooms article (102 comments in total)

I wish they would unify their daft numbering systems. What is the point of calling the same camera a ZS45 in one place and a TZ57 in another?

Had to have a chuckle, seeing "real world" and "fashion" in the same sentence.

"No touch screen" is actually a point in its favour.
