Rod McD: Human filing cabinets. Not a leaf to be seen. Sad that it's probably the future in many places.

Life is as how you see it. There are plenty of green spaces in Tokyo, and Hong Kong for that matter.

You get a little wider on these and you would be able to a lot more than just buidlings...

In reply to:

Simon97: 300 bucks for any camera with a 1/2.3 sensor is asking too much.

...and yet I would rather pay $300 bucks for this rather than an APS-C camera that can't auot-focus correctly.

bigdaddave: What self-indulgent nonsense. Why does this deserve to be here?

...because DPR has been doing journalistic pieces ...hopefully trying to turn the site into more of an all around photography site and less of a photo gear site. It's called expanding your user base, thus more hits, thus selling ad space for more money, thus making more money ...and hopefully it rolls into a site that puts more into itself and making it a better experience for all of its, expanded, users.

Stealthy Ninja: I gotta wonder why that guy has a Dora the Explorer play-set in his house. I'd have thought that was too ethnic for him and his kin.

Well, right now the KKK are all for Zimmerman...

On Is the snapshot dead? post (70 comments in total)

Robert E Jackson has a pessimistic view and nothing has changed or evolved. Maybe he is just too lazy to go through the "me" photos to get to the "we" photos.

I would be willing to bet that there are just as many "we" snapshots being taken today as any other time in human history. The only problem with seeing them is that there is now another layer added, with the advent of digital and the availablity of relatively good cameras to the masses, of the "me" photos.

In 1990 there were 500,000 "we" photos a day being taken.
Today there 10,000,000 photos a day being taken, 8,000,000 whcih are "me", 2,000,000 which are "we". ...sounds like Mr Jackson has a problem with todays culture and is frustrated with going through the me's to get to the we's.

In reply to:

Ben O Connor: They are good:

BUT resolution is still behind an D5200 (or is it?)
BUT a %100 cover OVF of a Pentax K-30 is lacking
BUT if the object moves to anywhere, they are not fast enought to capture
BUT They are not good video cams (well maybe a Gopro / Sony action cam with wifi is better options compare to their vid. )
BUT They are not chep to own ( A decent 600D canon is very afordable nowadays)
BUT there comes an amazing camera on a popular user interface on a Nokia phone (Lumia 1020)

Too many but, for a man who is not a but fettish :)

I like Irish Spring

On Fujifilm X100S Review preview (481 comments in total)
In reply to:

happypoppeye: The only problem is the price.

X100S / 35mm equivalne: $1299
EOS-M / 35mm equivalnet: $299

...not saying the M is better, but I've used both and the X100S certainly isn't $1000 better (for me).

Carlos ...the 22 is a good lens. Not perfect but for the size and price very good.

AF speed is still slow ...but better. Don't plan on shooting fast moving subjects kind of slow.

For $299, IQ wise, it may be the best out there relative to price.

Good work DPR ...and man, these posters on here have no notion of personal opinion or one mans trash is another man's treasure.

Those that use m43 complain about it, those that don't want one for their system...

In reply to:

arhmatic: The image quality is comparable to $100 camera.
But it's allright, it's waterproof, right?

Actually, if you can find a Panasonic ts20, if may be better image quality for under $100.

In reply to:

Anepo: What is the POINT of having a camera with interchangeable lenses that is worse than SEVERAL compact camera's with non nterchangeable lenses? This is basicly a TOY mirrorless rather than a REAL high quality mirrorless like the gx1, om-d, epl-5 e-pm1 e-pm2 & such.

To take photos maybe...???...

In reply to:

happypoppeye: EM-5 is $1000 ...this is an under $1000 list. Ok, so its close, but how is a $1000 body with no lens a best ILC or SLR?

I looked into it before commenting ...so are you asking yourself that flipmac?

The price is right in the article ...thats what they are going off of. ...and DPR is owned by Amazon, shouldn't they know their own price?

If the EM-5 is $1000 why is it on a list for the best under $1000 ...and the only one that is over $1000 with a lens.
