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

Are these lenses all new designs or just rehashes?
If new, they should have redesigned the whole system into mirrorless, smaller package and with smaller flange distance required.

Its a wasted opportunity if the already went through all the trouble of redesigning the new lenses.

On Phottix Mitros Flash for Canon Review article (34 comments in total)

These flash prices are idiotic...
How much does it cost to integrate a flash bulb and add a few well established feature after god knows how many decades of knowledge...

OEM prices should be illegal...

Project backers can pre-order the lens for $50 which is $20 less than the future retail price.

LOL!

I guess the old "if you build it they will come", still works in America.

In reply to:

SaltLakeGuy: I will be preordering this for the Fuji mount for sure. Love the manual control on the back a'la' EF-X20, the build is sure to be better than other Fuji offerings and the size is just wonderfully small yet still has all the articulation necessary for pro work. Even comes with the flip up reflector, flip down diffusor and a nice fitted white diffusor for the outside. Metal mount. Sounds like Nissin sure hit the mark here.

Its been on bh for a while now.
270$
This is very welcome for anyone that has a smaller camera.
Waiting for the m43version in June.

If it would have been 150$ it would absolutely be a steal. But i am not surprised. This is the first swivel/tilt flash in like ever.
I hope others will make more models.

On Sony Australia releases a3500 with new kit lens article (141 comments in total)

So Sony updated a new camera instead of a firmware?
This one was just 6 months young. Insulting.

I'll be keeping a n eye on the next releases in the next 12months , they will probably be renamed back to NEX and have firmware v1.2

I would like to see a sensor that has an ability to stop exposing parts that are about to become overexposed. Or expose a bit longer in the shadows, for more leverage in PP.
I guess this is similar.
It wont be a big deal if its not automated and available only as selective spots and only by the use of touchscreen.
It wont be a big deal if it wont be available in RAW as final output.
I would rather see them apply they curves features to RAW and not only for JPEG output. that would be enough for me.

I find the statement "I swear I will never sell anything this cheap again. " VERY snobbish and detached from reality.
150$ for a print, is by no means cheap in any country.
Good for him that he gets enough fools to pay more than that...

I love the photos, but come on...

WTF is that price? Does it read your mid while setting up...
Those guys should move to somewhere cheaper to make if they are having trouble pricing them competitively... Priced like its made 100% in Switzerland

I think this is a good deal.
The overall atmosphere in the comments suggest it is something pople can live with.
Those crying never for lifetime usage need to think of a few things:
- it is just one user of your photo, just he can use it,
- its just one photo, how glorious do you think our work is...
- 175$ for is good days pay in most o the world, plus somebody else could also buy it if its used more.
- its logical usage that if they buy it they can use it in more than one of theirs catalogue or web whatever.

Control your greed.

Wonderful. So they use their wast stock and seed the images for free, earn form hits and advertising and photographer gets nothing cause his work is represented in "to small" format so it is worth nothing, they say.
Other than the fact it is being used in the most massive media in the world who works with images small as this...

Great service. I will be sure to upload all the work there and advise other to do so to.

What a scam!

So it will make a photo with resolution of T:5,424×3,616 true 19MP in raw?

Other resolutions like:
1:1 5,120×5,120 or
3:2 7,680×5,120 are just JPEG up-scales or interpolation ? ?

Shameless...
They take 70%... I wonder how many emploies they have and where that would possibly explain this model...
Probably bloated consulting and legal fees...
