So the Butter Beer can be consumed without any special "responsibly" remarks?
:p

On Connect post Apple launches battery case for iPhone 6 & 6s (147 comments in total)
In reply to:

Horshack: I think many would prefer the tradeoff of a slightly fatter iPhone for more battery life than having to resort to aftermarket bolt-ons like this.

Not only iPhones, but smartphones in a general way.

CheersUK: I have to say, with the teasing, it had better be the most awesome DSLR at the most awesome price...something in the realm of Nikon D810 build and features for D610 or rebated D750 price. Anything else will just be, "oh well, another camera released that doesn't offer me enough to change systems".

I have to say, that I do have a soft spot for Pentax...well the Pentax K mount, to be specific. Oh the were the days...

But this fullframe camera IS supposed to top those AF-C abilities of Canikon cameras, right? So if Pentax hasn't done so great until now, they have to show some good improvement.

As for AF-S, at least until the K5 (which I own), there are many, many topics and complaints about focus inacuracies. Even in my own usage, while not terrible nor slow (actually, I never found it to be slow), I did use to miss focus on some shots.

And mind you that when I say that it's "not as good as the competition" it's just that. I'm not saying that it's not good at all, it's useless and things like that.

The weakest spot on Pentax cameras (always?) has been the focusing system. Slow/inaccurate in comparison to the top competitors.

All else: build, weathersealing, handling, menus, image quality etc., you can expect very, very, high standards.

On Connect post Samsung Galaxy S7 rumored to come with 1/2-inch 12MP sensor (86 comments in total)
In reply to:

neo_nights: It's a shame that Microsoft won't continue Nokia's work with bigger sensors...

I've read rumors somewhere that a company (Samsung, I guess) is thinking about bringing physical buttons back to cell phones. That would be nice.

But any phone with 6"+ is considered a "phablet", so it's just another category. For me, personally, 5" is more than enough.

Big screen phones? Aren't 5" big enough?

I can't help but wonder if those ever-so-thin smartphones couldn't be, I don't know, a couple of millimiters thicker so they could have a bigger sensor (as well as a bigger battery).

On article Holga Digital camera project launched on Kickstarter (150 comments in total)
In reply to:

Elandreth: "The Holga Digital camera features original optics that are known for their dark corners..."

Did they just try to advertise heavy vignetting as a positive feature?

@matthias - Or you could use a crop lens on a fullframe camera, right? (even on film it'd work!)
:p

Maciek_Leopolis: Would it be a nuisance if I asked - which floor was that balcony? One story would make a difference ;)

BTW In 1993 my Good Old Canon T90 survived a direct horse-backward-kick. Uuuups! Only a UV filter ring get damaged, 35mm lens was OK.
Be careful with the frog perspective images at the cavalry parades, folks ;)

According to the link provided in the news from LeicaStore Hong Kong:
"What if a Leica M9 accidentally drop from the roof (4/F) to granite floor?"

So now people will have to make a battle between Nokia's old cellphones and Leica M9.

And a new meme is born!

In reply to:

citizenlouie: Well, I want to point out something about copyright comment on the Photo 9. Yes, you do need model release, and it's not misconstrued. That's one of the lessons you learn when you take your photography class (and property release, for that matter). The tabloid is in constant legal fight (and they don't mind paying that if they believe they can earn more money selling the paper or blackmail the celebrity in question. It's not the norm of a proper photography practice!). Let's not forget those people paparazzi shot are "public" figures. Their legal right to their image is much more limited to that of regular individuals like us or the cosplay models. Because court judge would definitely ask how much privacy does the person in the photo expects, and that will affect the outcome of the law suit. Lesson... model release is a yes because it's respectful, if not legal.

Paparazzi shots are taken WITHOUT people's consent!

While for Cosplay, it IS part of cosplaying to be photographed! No one makes a cosplay to wear it in front of the mirror and then put it in the wardrobe again.

You DO need a model release if you are going to use it for commercial purposes (like releasing a book), surely.

For web usage, no you don't need a release. It's a consensual thing, based on goodwill. As such, of course, if the person asks the photographer to remove the picture from his/her website, then that should be done.

In reply to:

Rooru S: no mention of the QX100...it has a 3.5x zoom with a 1.0 Type Sensor too...! and a better bracket to mount it on several types of mobile phones... Perhaps because DPR doesn't want to hurt DxO?

Until some chinese company comes up, buys the DPReview brand and release the DPR Camera.

If DxO can, why DPR can't? Right? I mean..... right?

@Barney - But little did they know; you are actually sponsored by Pentax.
