Maybe everyone else will ban RAWs then we can really move to a universal lossless format. RAWs are good but I hate the thought of maintaining the software to open my images in 10-15 years.

Combatmedic870: People better start selling off their nx gear before Samsung makes an official statement saying they are leaving the market. Price will go from $1100 for an nx1 to $500 overnight.

Why? Do people purely buy based on resale value?

A sad world if that is what you based your photography on.

A decline in samsung products or the market in general.

On article 2015 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras $500-800 (269 comments in total)
In reply to:

AndrePooh: Utterly amazing that the class leading in everything NX500 not even made it to the "also consider..." part.

Class leading? well according to DxO the sensor scores 87 on par with the D7200 as best APS-C sensors versurs A6000 at 82 ( )

Furthermore the direct comparing tool shows the NX500 to beat the A6000 on just about everything especially on build quality and metering and focus accurary, this makes the "plasticky"- what we don't like- all the more awkward since the testreport says: "The NX500 feels solid in your hand and is ergonomically pleasing...." etc,

Sure, arch conservatists will miss the EVF. However more practical others would miss the brilliant tap focus touch screen on other cameras. That's all subjective. The bias however show if you don't let the hard figures speak.

All about sales. Can't sell the best camera no one wants.

This camera is not for me, but I am glad Sony is releasing products on a regular basis. It helps lower the price of the older models. Always good to have choice.

On article JPEG Committee contemplates adding DRM to image format (186 comments in total)
In reply to:

G G: DRM is at best an annoyance for honest people, as has been demonstrated with DVD and Blue Ray.

Its ironic that the thing that that led to the original playstation being so popular was the fact that it could be chipped and allow for copied games to be played. Piracy sometimes just works out better in the long run for some products.

Some of the comments are hilarious. Probably mostly from old folks who don't understand how the internet works.

If someone wants your image, it will be taken one way or another. If you don't want it stolen, don't post it online.

Its unfortunate that technology has progressed and some people lost their earning capacity but that's life. Adapt or Perish. Happens in all industries.

In reply to:

cshyde: So Sony sold what maybe 10 or 15 of the original RX1R cameras for $3,000 each. I'm surprised they didn't discontinue it. Now we have a camera with resolution that far surpasses the ability of printers, video monitors and and hard drives to store and display this resolution. The price will certainly be higher and you have a fixed lens camera that costs as much as Sony's best full frame DSLR. I'll wait until the next iteration of the Fuji X100.

Did you pull that number out of your ass?

On there are 18 listings for the RX1R.

A lot of people take photos as memories. These pictures will be viewed in 5-10 years when all the things you mentioned have caught up.

So many haters. This is a great idea but the price is steep. Not much different to people putting on grips on DSLRs to improve handling.

Franco8: The inventor stated he uses it to take "STILL PICTURES" That is Photographs that dont move. What does he call Video "Moving Photograph"

I don't own a go pro but i am guessing it is pictures with subjects that don't move. Maybe the go pro has a shutter speed limitation

Didn't read the article correctly but other comments suggested that this update does not address lossless compression.

I want lossless not lossy.

Richard Murdey: What is up with that product shot, which looks like it was taken with an iPhone at ISO3200?

I agree, its a pretty poor picture.

Maybe they are too embarrassed about their own brand so didn't want to show the front ring.

Thank you Sony for having regular model updates. It makes planning for upgrades much easier. Older models become cheaper allowing others an affordable path to Full Frame.

Sony gives users a choice on features with many different price points.

On article Canon EOS M3 real-world samples (152 comments in total)
In reply to:

keeponkeepingon: It's really odd that almost all pictures are with the kit lens or UWA zoom. The only pictures taken with a prime lens (the 22mm F2.0) are at 3200 ISO and above.

Please post a few picts with the 22mm under normal conditions at reasonable ISO. That lens is really popular with the EOS-M crowd, and shots with it would be most helpful for folks considering upgrading.

And while you are at it throw in a few picts with decent EF or EF-S canon glass using the adapter?


I don't think the m3 is an upgrade. There are better options if you are not invested in Canon glass.

This camera is a compromise the only thing that is selling these things is the Canon compatibility.

I'm a canon user and quite disappointed the M3 did not do 4k.

FFS my ASUS padfone does 4k. So does my Samsung galaxy s5.
