On Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 Review preview (192 comments in total)

DPR wrote: "Its use of a fast readout sensor and the four-core Venus IV processor"

I am very sure it is NOT Venus IV. Venus IV was introduced in 2008. Since then there was a generation or two every year (some labelled HD and HD II). For example, Venus VII was used in G5 a few years ago. This one must be IX or so.

What an incredibly professional review. A couple steps above usual DPR standards. I hope you'll hire Mark Banas to do more work for you.

How to get the look/color like in #12 with digital? Some specific film simulation?

fmian: Why would people be moving around so much within a studio?
Surely an assistant with a boom pole would do the same job..

And c'mon... this tech must REALLY be designed for the military right?

The robot does not have to be paid minimum wage. :-)

Good thing Canadians never invented anything significant, 50 years ago or 500 years ago or otherwise. :-)

Isca: Without the Russians war in Europe could have dragged on. The fighting, the harsh winter, all stretched Hitler and the German army to its absolute limits before it succumbed. As we all know from Hollywood the US won the war on the western front singlehandedly.

Beautiful image - interesting that photojournalism has all of these constraints on representation today and yet many of the iconic images of the second war seem to have been staged.

"Russian effort went largely unnoticed in the history books for many years."

I guess these were the wrong "history" books you have read.

" And continues to go unnoticed in Hollywood :)"

I am sure American effort is just as unnoticed by the Russian version of Hollywood. It does not matter, it has nothing to do with real history, just fairy tales. :-)

Who cares about "per capita". Per capita, Belarus lost the most, and certainly MANY MANY MORE people than the UK. It was also overrun in a matter of days. Although even Belorussians had more influence on the outcome of the war than British. :-)

"Russians and Chinese only know how to copy, the Zorki was made from stolen German equipment and intellect"

Right, and the first satellite in space, the first human in space, the first nuclear power station were also stolen by Russian. Oh, wait...
Chinese... they used to invent stuff too, up to about 500 years ago. :-) Russians - only 50 years ago or so.

The reparation were actually legal. :-)

British did not "held off the Nazis for several years", British declared a war against Nazis, then did nothing for a year, and then when the war in Europe finally started, they quickly lost it and fled to their island. It is not until American tanks appeared in Africa in 1942 Nazis or Japanese had any damage from anyone but USSR (and by 1942, USSR was not in war with Japan, because of American blockade Japan had to start the war against USA instead of USSR, AND USSR was losing against Germany and Romania in Europe and British were losing in Africa). Germany and Japan were approximately equal and major forces, USSR killed the most Germans by far and USA killed the most Japanese by far. Everybody else's participation would not change the outcome of the war in any way, just the timing.
Read real history books, not the patriotic trash given as "history" in elementary schools everywhere.

George Veltchev: Well .... I didn't noticed that the Germans lost the damn war ...

Eastern Germany was destroyed and oppressed by Soviets for decades though. It is not like the Western part which was provided with a lot of assistance (including military protection lasting to this day, paid by American taxpayer).

As Wikipedia teaches as, Zorki was manufactured from 1948 to 1978, probably with the equipment taken from Germans after the war. :) It would be incredible if it would be used to take a picture in 1945. :-)

But without the US, Germany and Japan together would probably conquer Soviet Union, in a 2-3 years. Neither one could win the war alone, it was a team effort, USSR+USA vs Germany+Japan, everybody else who participated on either side either sped up or delayed the victory by a few weeks each, but were not essential in any way, no matter what your local schools are telling you. :-)

On Nikon 1 V3 First Impressions Review preview (585 comments in total)

Between fixed-lens Sony RX and Panasonic FZ1000 (and a horde others undoubtedly coming with this sensor) and dirt-cheap now m43 and Sony NEX cameras, the whole Nikon 1 system is as pointless as ever. Maybe if its 70-300 were not so overpriced, and it had a good specially made 1:1 macro it would be interesting for some applications.
