On Ricoh surfs into action camera market with WG-M1 article (106 comments in total)
In reply to:

Digitall: Advice #1: Never buy a Action camera less than 60fps at FHD.

I take pictures ...I only need about 1 frame per 2 seconds.

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.

artwine: Lesson 1 - which should be obvious by now - is that if you post anything on the Internet, anywhere, then it's now in the public domain. You have relinguished your rights to it, in essence. If you don't like it, don't post! There's a price to pay for "advertising".

...sounds like some people got an F in the first lesson.

Honestly, I couldn't care less about the camera that took the picture. ...but good shot ...first time I ever saw it.

In reply to:

matador88: so what is the advantage of this new slide over current leash??

It cost more, there are more parts to break, it takes more time to put it on, and together, and its more of a hassle because it takes up more space. It looks like that girl in the middle has a strap that takes up three times the volume of the actual camera.

I guess if your into "accessories" though...

In reply to:

select: nice improvements, but the lack of 4k video, wifi and gps, is a shame for a camera that costs over 3k euros

Unless you are using it to take pictures ...wifi and gps is just fluff

Direct link | Posted on Jun 26, 2014 at 12:57 UTC

Awesome ...so you buy a mirrorless camera for the main advantage of being smaller and lighter than an SLR then you put it on the back of one of the biggest heaviest cameras you can find.

Nice shots ...but wouldn't a macro lens work?

quezra: Finally the tele lens! Now where's the EVF and grip to use it properly?

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III First Impressions Review preview (2970 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mike FL: This Sony is the NIGHTMARE for Canon G1XMK2 if RX100M3 Lowlight IQ is as good as RX100M2 [which is much better than Canon G1X MK2].

Forget about Nikon 1 as Nikon J1 with 10/30mm lens is priced @$199 in OfficeDepot in US.

IQ is everything, and four poor IQ Nikon J1 (4x199=796) is $2 cheaper than one RX100M3 ($798).

Well executed, Sony!

Sounds good but IQ is usually way the down the list, as evidenced by your post stating that IQ is everything yet I can think of about 25 or 30 cameras right off the bat that have better IQ.

On Calumet Oak Brook, Illinois store reopens this Sunday article (41 comments in total)
In reply to:

BRPWS: and what about the employees Calumet screwed. It seems to me that bankruptcy for companies like Calumet come at great cost to the people who worked and supported them as well as customers. How many times does a company have to go bankrupt for them to stay out of the business altogether.

I agree with BRPWS ...if a company buys the name then expect the reputation the name comes with. Calumet was a thief and if this new company wants the name without paying back the customers the name ripped off then their a thief too.

On Samsung NX mini First Impressions Review preview (566 comments in total)
In reply to:

supeyugin1: "On the top of the camera here's a built-in flash nestled under the panel just above the lens mount, and a proprietary accessory port hidden under the cover in the middle of the top deck. "

I see that built-in flash is on the front of the camera. The cover on top of the lens mount is the LCD hinge.

...the other cover.

On Nikon 1 V3: a quick summary article (597 comments in total)

Looks like a nice little camera ...with a nice big camera price. Why is this so expensive?

Direct link | Posted on Mar 14, 2014 at 01:37 UTC as 73rd comment

Well, usually most of the comments here are "anti-brand" type but this time I have to agree with most of them.
The camera looks great and I would definitely be interested. Looks like the nicest of the 1 series yet ...but $1199? That is almost just about insane. I need neither the EVF nor the grip, yet I have to buy it to get the camera ...dumb. Nikon is making people buy a camera that most people will buy for the size yet those people have to also buy the grip that will never be used by most? C'mon.

Things like this and like the Canon EOS-M AF make me think that maybe it is time for Nikon to Canon to start losing massive amounts of money on their photo divisions. Ashame ...great looking and spec'd camera.
