DualSystemGuy: Welcome to 2013, Apple.

DualSystemGuy, Apple didn't even announce this as people glanced this from the release notes. You are wearing your tinfoil hat too tight

ZorSy: I'd rather think gov. officials being concerned the street view would show the truth how they 'manage' their citizen's living conditions...Head in the sand and all good...

@BeaverTerror
I remember at least a few places in the US that won't sell gas to people carrying Jerrycans because the container is consider unsafe.

I think the good of Street View outweights the bad but a few years ago (don't know if it is still the case), scammers in Taiwan use Street View to look up target's neighborhood to aid them in pretending to be target's family member, neighbor, etc.

On article iFixit takes a look inside the Olympus PEN E-PL7 (18 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mike FL: Olympus' price structure is kind of out of whack as PEN E-PL7 is same priced as EM10, and both are $399:

Not a good sign.

That's how I picked up a Panasonic GX7 with kit-lens for $450

On article Video: Canon EOS 7D versus leaf-cutter ants (47 comments in total)
In reply to:

James Benet: The reason they took the plastic and the other bits is because you left a sweat or smell imprint on it. The ants do not eat the leafs or insects they take. They hoard it deep into their nests and let it rot to grow a fungus that is their true food source. The plastic and other parts by having bacteria and human oils and sweat would also help in growing the fungus. As a nature photographer myself the water containers help but are just a starting defense. You need to use White Petrolatum or Vaseline in the tripod legs to stave them off as that is something they easily stick to and thwarts their advance.

You can sprinkle realgar around your camp ground which would repel snakes and insects. Interestingly, the highest use of realgar is during the Dragon Boat Festival which is today.

Pitchertaker: Thankfully, ants weren't made as big as rats, otherwise we'd be fetching food for them.

We will just eat their eggs and drive them to extinction like rat did to a bunch of birds and dinosaurs.

fatdeeman: It would be nice if phone makers could settle on some kind of magnetic standard for attaching accessory lenses. Apple would never get on board but maybe it could become an adroid thing at least?

Makes more sense to just make one for Apple like the company has done. Android don't follow a standard even Google's own.

On article Samsung announces ruggedized Galaxy S7 Active (36 comments in total)
In reply to:

PLShutterbug: I work for a rugged computer manufacturer. MIL STD-810G means basically nothing since manufacturers have wide latitude in implementing the standard.

My son has the S6 Active. He dropped it from a short height and there was a small ding in the lower left corner of the case, it stopped charging and AT&T said the ding voided the warranty.

Unless manufacturers are willing to back up their claims with real warranties that reflect the "active" intent and their advertising, these phones must still be treated as if they are fragile.

Otterbox would last longer. It is bigger as well so that's the trade off.

In reply to:

Mister Joseph: My wife's S4 died when she dropped it on the floor. My S4 died when I dropped it in the toilet. S7 Active will be my next phone!

The old Active was poorly made. One drop and the glue that holds the housing together might crack and allow water to seep in. I hope the new one have better glue or method to secure the housing together.

manolo romero: I just recently bought the lens and I'm very happy with the quality.
Its lighter than 400 2.8 sharpness is excellent. The ability to track subjects from a distance as you zoom are superb. That missing range from 200 to 400
is wonderful to have at a twist of a barrel. I can olny think of the shots Ive missed grabbing my 70-200. The ability to frame shots alone are worth a bundle. I let some fellow phtographers try the lens out while shooting a college Lacrosse match and they were equally pleased. The 1.4 ext. also gives you that range that would take an addition lens to cover, especially when shooting with a 1D IV. This lens has become my favorite sports lens in my arsenal.

You have just made me realize the lens is actually a 200-560 f/4-5.6

How old is this review? Why a review for a phone that's replaced soon?

What's the difference between electronic shutter and global shutter for stills?

I got a feeling this is for iPhone 7. Wasn't there story of SONY lost a big contract because of production issue after the earthquake and Apple approach OmniVision for sensor. Since all PLUS phone would have dual-camera, no single OEM can fill Apple's gigantic order.

ZC Lee: Please, Apple engineer. Buy ZF3 Deluxe, learn how to design Antenna.

iPhone 6S covers 19 LTE bands, zenFone 2 covers 8 bands. Their antenna design and capability are not comparable and I doubt zenFone 3 can match iPhone 6S. For reference, Galaxy S7 covers 10 bands and Android world phone Nexus 6P covers 12.

Now that girl would be told she is too thin and propagates negative body image.

On article X-ray: iFixit looks inside the Fujifilm X-M1 (33 comments in total)
In reply to:

qwertyasdf: Despite Fuji's reputation, and their target audience, I have to say Fuji makes one of the worst feeling cameras, the plastic on the X-T1 simply feels yuck!

I have the X-E1 and X-A1, both feels very plasticy and they actually are (which to me is a good thing though, becoz of the light weight).

My GX7 feels far more solid than my X-E1 but GX7 is flagship while X-E1 is just equally expensive mid-range. GX7 is just overall a lot better than X-E1

In reply to:

TheWhiteDog: Guess this Fuji is made in Japan as it is as neat as a pin, as opposed to my made in China X30. But this doesn't have an EVF or a integral lens so that helps. Doesn't matter, I love my X30 which performs perfectly and has never had a problem and is far more solidly built than this camera.

Neat? Go see a SONY before you say Fuji is neat.
