ybizzle: Or just get a real enthusiast pocket camera with a big, bright screen and better IQ for the same price and call it a day.

Only thing is Rishi, full frame camera owners aren't reliant on an app. and a big phone sticking out to reach the camera's full potential. And if the pentax 645z was in the same price class as an average full frame then it makes a lot of sense indeed.

naltar: it's ironic to see the review of a a camera that, 10 months ago, created quite a stir, but now is kind of a white unicorm as it's already disappeared from majority (not many in the first place) stores across Europe and Samsung are vague, at best, about their plans on digicam market.

Just curious, where does one obtain such store statistics for europe?

jonikon: No EVF is off-putting, but no built-in flash is a deal killer for me. I had a Nikon V1 which also does not have a built-in flash and it was a real pain putting the flash on and then having to take it off when stowing the camera. Sometimes I forgot or misplaced the flash. I use the convenient built-in flash of my Nikon Coolpix A often to good effect, both indoors and outdoors, (for fill flash). Why some camera designers think a flash is a rarely used accessory that one should carry separately is beyond me.

I have a whole shelf full of chargers, I don't need another one. Usb charging is awesome because my phone chargers are everywhere. And using an external power bank to top up away from a power outlet is worth gold.

The nx500 is a great camera, have it with me all the time now, fits snug in my work satchel when I'm commuting to and fro'. I've taken more pictures with it in the last 3 weeks than I have with my dslr's the last year. Soo much joy I have with this little cam.

joe6pack: How about writing the article after you have actually used one?

It really sounds like the author is trying to give a big wink wink nudge nudge to adobe to please make some apps for the Big ipad

Then the People of Europe should sue the copyright owners of such buildings for obscuring the rest of the free city landscape.

On article #1 in France: Hands-on with DxO ONE (278 comments in total)

Looks like a big and clumsy two handed way of taking pictures. The connection point looks too flimsy, and not ideal for capturing the moment ie, having to connect the two units. Probably takes decent pictures though.

We really are spoiled for choice these days, and sony sure is the sugar daddy

mpgxsvcd: I would be willing to bet that no one is ever able to take a truly good picture with this camera at the 35mm equivalent of 2000mm.

My 8 inch F4.0 telescope gives me the 35mm equivalent of 1600mm. That perfectly fills a 16:9 aspect ratio with the moon. However, it has to be on a tracking mount in order to follow the moon’s motion at this focal length. Therefore, it is unrealistic to think that you are going to get great images or even videos of objects in space while hand holding this camera or if it is on a non-tracking tripod mount.

The lack of RAW is a good indication that these images are useless without massive in camera distortion correction. Even with the correction they are probably still close to useless. That is a tiny sensor with a ridiculous zoom range.

This camera would have been so much better if they just gave it a 25x zoom and a faster aperture instead.

try taking your tracking mount and telescope on a safari and let us know how you get on.

Marty4650: What you are witnessing is a fundamental change in the market.

Obviously, not enough people were paying for Microsoft cloud storage, and their sales for Office 365 weren't going well, so they decided to give you one product for free if you would buy the other.

This is very much like the cell phone companies giving you "unlimited minutes" to entice you to buy more data bandwidth from them.

Microsoft's real problem is people like me who are still using Office 2003 and happy with it. After 25 years of MS Office, there aren't that many improvements needed. My 11 year old copy works just fine.

Incidentally, the same exact thing will happen to Adobe. At some point people will get sick and tired of monthly subscription fees and find a copy of CS5 or CS6 instead.

Only office 365 uses the 'rental' scheme, the other versions you own, and you get about 11 gig free ( maybe more or less?) with your Ms account. I have office 2013, no on going fees, one time cost, no bulldust.

Stigg: wasted time and effort on a boring image. its still boring after all the play-by-play analysis and photoshopping. good or great images don't need much or any after-treatment. that's why i'm still using film.

Stigg, can you tell us the story behind Your biscuit tin shot?
