On Flickr brings back Pro account option article (71 comments in total)
In reply to:

MeganV: The internet needs less photography-mediated-by-Marissa-Mayer and more photography-mediated-by-photographers.

I wish people weren't so intimidated by HTML <IMG> tags.

Because that's really what Flickr is, right--it's an HTML avoidance system. It lets you post photographs by learning to use Flickr instead of the <IMG> tag. It lets you share photographs with links to Flickr's domain rather than with links to *your* domain. It keeps your conversations and interactions within its walled community rather than within your e.mail box, on your messenger, or on *your* web site.

But basic HTML and <IMG> tags aren't hard! If you can use Flickr, you can whip up some tags.

True, web hosting isn't free. But you can get your own domain, comprehensive analytics, and unlimited storage for $5 - $8 / month with just about any provider you might choose. That's not much of a premium over this new Flickr "pro" arrangement.

One of the dumbest posts I've ever seen ...you are just replacing one item for another item and paying more for it. I have my own site and I have Flickr Pro and Flickr is much easier. To each his own opinion but to start bashing another person, than calling people intimidated as a whole reflects a very small minded person. For some Flickr is better, for some a personal website is. You can't see that?

MrTaikitso: Uhm, how about using a world-standard mount for gadgets! A simple grip mount that could alternatively hold a phone or GPS would suffice! That way, no brand can own the mount market.

Probably because GoPro went to Toyota with a product to hold their product and signed a contract with them because Toyota thought it was a good feature. So, until the world standard mount company goes to Toyota, this is it.

Mister Roboto: I will sell or trade my truck so I can use a worthless GoGo camera sweet!

Why would do that? You can just buy a mount for a lot cheaper.

In reply to:

Dennis: What does Canon have against viewfinders ? Afraid it might compete with their DSLRs ?

Keep the viewfinders off of the compacts ...but this ain't so compact and at that price ...get an SLR.

winkalman: This should probably be renamed to "Spray and Pray" mode.

Why use a gun when you can use a grenade. Forget American Sniper, lets see American Grenader.

A compact that's not so compact and for $2400.00/ Lets take a look at the specs: fixed slow lens, no RAW, 1 inch sensor and a tilting body AND tilting screen. ...should have charged $3500.00.

In reply to:

Stitzer23: Nice pics. So, can these photos be taken with a cameraphone or a basic compact? No i didnt think so. The tool does matter. I wish people could just stop with the notion that the equipment is not important.

@NZ Scott ...you put the smartphone on a tripod and set ISO high.

Actually, yes, most of them could in the right hands. The camera doesn't matter but equipment is very important.

The only problem I see is that most of these waterproof compacts leak ...and the gopro case doesn't. It's priced fairly low though and as long as it is truly sealed, looks like it could compete. Most people have no idea what the difference is between the different "p's" so probably a non issue.

On Fujifilm announces X30 enthusiast compact camera article (43 comments in total)
In reply to:

Nukunukoo: Seriously? I have the X20 and there really is no compelling reason to switch (and I still love the X20's Retro Styling). Same lens and sensor (not that I'm complaining, good IQ especially in PP). Full manual and better Movie Mode does call for serious consideration BUT it should have been in the X20 in the first place! Tilting screen and battery life is applaud-able but it's more of an X25 than an X30 if the key features have not changed at all!

So what you're saying is that you don't like the name...

In reply to:

raay: This camera just has a larger MP sensor and AF , not better than 5n . No way to attach evf or flash , even a radio trigger could be used if it had Hotshoe , THIS IS NOT A 5series camera.

Yeah ...it is, its called a5100. Unfortunately Sony decides what a 5 series camera is, not you.
