On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II Review preview (451 comments in total)
In reply to:

Donnie G: Alright, who's the comedian who came up with the term "mirrorless" cameras? Who the heck walks into a Costco, Walmart or Best Buy and says "Hey, can I buy a mirrorless camera? Or, Hey, can I buy a stepless ladder?" Sounds like something important has been left out of the product, doesn't it? I mean I understand what those folks are trying to say: "Mirrors! We don't need no stinking mirrors." I get it. But they need to come up with a new product description or catch phrase to help sell these cameras they claim to love so much. And please no, don't use E.V.I.L. either, unless you want to continue to have warehouses full of "marketless, SLRless" cameras for sale. :)

What is your "mirrorless" comment to do with Canon G1 X?

On Nikon to offer D600 replacements if 'spots' continue article (174 comments in total)
In reply to:

PixelMover: With all due respect to dpreview readers who genuinely had dust/oil/spot issues witht heir D600...
Bear in mind the source. China utterly hates and despises Japan (My wife is Chinese..) and will do ANYTHING and EVRYTHING to discredit/blame/smudge.insult/demean Japan at any opportunity.

The D600 fiasco is just a god-given present to China.

Put it this way. I have spent 4 month is China now and most of the time, they eat Japanese food buy Japanese brands, use Japanese electronics. But every now and then, a government-induced Japan-hate is instilled, where people who ate Sushi yesterday throw bricks throug the sushi bar's windows tomorrow...

@Donnie,
So China asks D600 sales to be stopped because they hate Japanese? Why don't they stop D610 and other Nikon camera sales? Why don't they stop other camera sales because almost all cameras now are Japanese brands? -If your logic is correct.

Put a pure quality issue into such a political spin is laughable.

On Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II: a quick summary article (534 comments in total)

Why there are two Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II in the sensor size table? Should one be Mark 1?

Useful to me or not aside, we should encourage these type of out-box-thinking.

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 Review preview (347 comments in total)

The glass in the lens is not that large but the lens external diameter is pretty big. It makes the body + lens looking unballanced.

On Leica unveils D-Lux 6 Silver Edition article (92 comments in total)

I even don't think you can call it "silver" edition because the body is totally black.

I would suggest Leica just focusing on its lens business…

In reply to:

marcel smit: Totally waste of time and money if you ask me imho.
For that money en size you better spent your money on a decent compact camera.

When you separate it from the phone, it will make a lot impossible photo takings possible now. So I would say it is useful is certain situations.

In reply to:

Just a Photographer: I yet have to see if this will become successful.

My feeling says utter failure - an obsolete product with no future..
That 'special moment' is already over.... once you have finally attached this lens to your phone.

The most interesting thing is not attaching it to a smart phone, but separating it from the phone. I think it is useful in a lot situations.

On OMG Life Autographer Quick Review preview (123 comments in total)
In reply to:

dylanbarnhart: The concept is absurb for a forum full of photographers. But this is no joke. There is an emgerging flow of thought brought along by Google Glass called Timeline. In the timeline, the present is most important. Then unimportant things in the past slowly fade away. That's how human memory works. Our eyes observe everything constantly, then retain only remarkable things in the past.

A person can just wear this device, or Google Glass, everyday and it silently takes pictures whenever something new or interesting happens. These pictures are only stored for a short period of time. When something interesting happens, the person, or friends can later revisit the photos and make them sticky, meaning to save them permanently. The photos that are not looked at are eventually deleted.

You'd be surprised how many interesting things in life are missed because they didn't seem photo worthy at the time. Think about the interesting moments of your life and whether you have pictures for them.

Very interesting. I think you need two of it -ware one in front of you and one in back. Thus you wouldn't miss any actions.

I don't know it is just me... I feel it takes longer time to open a Set. It is much slower now than before.

In reply to:

shlam: How is this competitive in the market? Say compared to the Sony NEX 3N, it costs $100 more, has a larger, yet shorter zoom range kit lens with no stabilization, no built-in flash, no tilt-screen...

Flash is included, so as LR4.

Looks like a very practical tool. Like it. But for $450?

Acknowledging the problem is definitely a good step in right direction for Nikon to take.

BozillaNZ: With the time I open the card door to access the switch, I can instead take the card out and chuck it into the SD slot in my desktop/laptop and only using 1/100 time to transfer all my images over!

Sure you can if you have a notebook/desktop computer nearby. but if you only have a ipad/smatphone around?

It is not an invention but practically useful.
