Hey, even if the GH4 was announced tomorrow, we'd not have our hands on it this year in all likelihood :)

On article Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? (1509 comments in total)

"What was the best camera of 2012?"

Sort of a silly question when I think about it. Best for what? For astronomy -- probably the EOS 60Da (not counting aftermarket mods). For video -- probably one of the Panny GH cameras. For sports -- ... . Etc.

On article Dpreview Recommends: Top 5 Compact Cameras (559 comments in total)
In reply to:

Danel: What an odd grouping of cameras. They only have two things in common, they have non-removable zoom lenses and dpreview liked them.

Some of the things dpreview liked and didn't like seem very random. Example: They said the LCD on the RX100 can be hard to see in bright light. Isn't that true of all LCD screens? Isn't, for example, the screen on the G15 also hard to view in bright light? Why no mention of that? I'm lead to believe that the screen on the RX100 more difficult to view in bright light than all the others. I don't have the camera, but I thought it was suppose to have an advanced LCD that actually made it a bit better in bright light. Can an RX100 user comment on whether or not the LCD on that camera is especially bad.

"What an odd grouping of cameras. They only have two things in common, they have non-removable zoom lenses and dpreview liked them.": That seems like a good criterion.

I'll probably go for it. There are some aspects of v. 7 I enjoy. I first tried it with v. 7 and bought it last Winter when I think there was also a lower price.

nofumble: I bough an iPad3 for my wife, and bought an iPad2 for my mom. The iPad 2 is $399.

The iPad mini is a reduced screen-size iPad2. Why is it priced at $329?

It does not have GPS. Is there any reason I would carry with me when I am going out?

As far as viewing photo-image using iPad3 - not worth it. It is too slow to load for my patience. Pictures taken from my DSLR are too big. The iPad3 don't handle it too well.

"Priced to compete": Not an Apple concept. MacBooks et al are more expensive than Win laptops, at least most are.

Looks like nofumble needs an iPad 4 -- like the iPad 3 but faster. I'll stick with my iPad 3 :)

PAUL TILL: Well it only took a couple of minutes to go wrong.

Tried posting in the Fuji forum and got a message saying: You can only post once per day in the for sale forum. :P

Maybe they just don't want you to run out of stuff :)

I always read in Flat View, never threaded. But now I find that if I look at an image, do a reply, etc. it kicks me back to Threaded view. So I have to reselect Flat view.

Can this be fixed?

Roberto,

It says above "Scalado will premiere showcase Remove, the first of many new innovations planned this year, at the 2012 Mobile World Conference in Barcelona, February 27th to March 1st." and also "The 'Remove' technology, currently being shown-off in the form of an Android app, is the first object removal software on a mobile device" so it sounds like it will be coming soon for Android. Don't know about iOS for iPad, etc.

Solarcoaster: Fish and water drop look photoshopped. So much for real photography.

Pathetic reaction by Solarcoaster to a fine piece of photography. Sometime silence beats being a smart ***.

Nice shot. I do wonder if this turned out the way the bird intended? :)

On article Fujifilm patents hybrid organic/CMOS sensor (82 comments in total)

Organic? Do they plan to sell it in health food stores?

Seriously, Fujifilm does have a history of sensor innovation. It will be interesting to see where this one leads.

On article Richard Franiec offers accessory grip for Canon S100 (28 comments in total)

I've installed Richard's grip on my S100. While, unlike the S90/95, Canon provided something of a grip on the S100, the Franiec grip for the S100 definitely improves grip security when shooting with the S100. The "waffle" texture on the grip adds to that security. Definitely a worthwhile addition to my new S100.

Nice gloves :) I'm more partial to the Canon IS binoculars.

On article Panasonic launches FZ47/FZ48 24x superzooms (98 comments in total)

I don't see anything here that would make it more interesting than my FZ40 (which I really like for it's great 25-600 mm range).

It will be interesting to see if the FZ100 with CMOS sensor gets an update; I didn't like the FZ100 and replaced it with the FZ40.
