On Canon Korea teases new camera, EOS M2 or SL1/100D? article (257 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dames01: People here are putting far too much attention to the word 'white' in the teaser text. I am sure that something got lost in the translation from Korean. A white rhinocerous is just as grey as any other... Google translation is not bad considering it is free, but I would not rely on it for anything serious.

I'm doing a Nikon comercial course translated from who-knows-what to spanish and then to Brazillian portuguese.
I speak Portugal Portuguese and half the times I have just a vague idea of what is being explained/asked...

If I die and go to hell, that's what I'll spend eternity doing...

Also I hope Canon get's its act together or I'll jum boat for Fuji or Olympus...

mosc: Dear DPR: When you show equivalent apertures, you should use a logarithmic X axis.

...which will stop slamming all wide angle and standard focal length values into the fringe so we can all see a lot less of 100-200mm irrelevance.

This sounds like an excelent idea!

On Fujifilm X-E2 Preview preview (454 comments in total)
In reply to:

REDred Photo: This camera design is reminiscent of the classic Canonet QL17 GIII. This was a beautifully simple, sub-Lecia sized, fixed 40mm f/1.7 rangefinder. It may even be a little smaller than the Fuji and probably weighs 2 or 3 times as much... but it's a beautifully simple brick of metal and glass that just works. I've always wished for a digital camera with that same form factor and I think this is it.

I'm thinking a X-E2 with the 23mm lens would be the perfect replacement. :-)

The X-E1/2 is way bigger than the Canonet.

photo nuts: Watch out, the Chinese are coming! All the mainland Chinese will buy their own China made products, given the recent tiff between China and Japan. The Chinese market is NOT small!

Exciting times. They'll help to push down the prices of cameras and lenses.

I work at a camera store (not in China) and the first thing chinese ask is "Where is the camera made? China? No thanks!"

SaltLakeGuy: I'm sure this will do well for them as all the Rebel's have. It's a fairly sensible update. Now it will be time for Nikon to step up with their next revolution. For now I'm glad to be OUT of the DSLR thing. Got into it in the beginning with the D30 and had at least 8 bodies from both Nikon and Canon since. Now I'm sticking with the OMD. It changed the way I work and travel with gear along with the no compromise approach. I don't need more than that. Many will jump on this camera as a matter of course so Canon need not worry about it's audience.

OM-D E-M5 :D

christiankoehler: A camera like this is called "higher spec" now?

In my opinion a p&s needs to have a good full auto mode. But I never understand the benefit of these scene modes.
What is the difference between "portrait" and "beauty"? Should I use "dog" or "cat" mode if it is an elephant? Why not just implement PASM modes? Manufactors obviously think buyers of compact cameras are idiots. But this is a $400 camera. For that price it should have a 1/1.8'' sensor, RAW mode, manual focus and manual/semi auto modes.


Call me old fashion, but I think those gimmicks belong more on smartphone apps for teenagers than compact cameras...

craigferguson: I bought this camera and I do like it but I don't want a flaw in it (ie) white blob. However night shooting is not where I would be using this. Should I send back to Amazon. I have 6 days to make my decision. Any advice from the people on here that know much much more than me would be appreciated. I am somewhat of a noobie when it comes to photogaraphy. Thanks everybody!

Sunlight between tree branches is where I first found a huge white ball... :(
