JKP: Maybe next version will have narrower bezel. Top and bottom are quite wide. I would rather see those areas occupied by a larger screen.

Just wait for an iGlove with suction cups. Only 0.61mm thin!

straylightrun: RIP Go Pro

It is a completely different market than GoPro.

That's really funny how clerks try to squeeze a dollar out of people on every occasion. :D But it's also sad in the end.

C'mon, show us some sample pics!!!

nothing special. just trying to keep up with the competition plus a few bulls**ts in their own mouth again, like NFC wasn't necessary before, but now it's a wow new feature. :) nokia has been implementing NFC for a mere 4 or 5 years now. :D another one: "we don't need bigger displays" :D and the phase detection feature makes me smile. but many people buy as per specs alone...
apple was my no. 1 tech company....some time ago. too sad.

tkbslc: Doesn't this picture know that you can't get subject isolation with m4/3?

brendon: you can calculate (or imagine) the subject isolation very easily. since it's crop factor of 2, it gives you equivalent DOF as f/3.6 on a fullframe sensor (with 35mm lens).

On Zeiss launches Loxia full frame lenses for Sony E-mount article (270 comments in total)
In reply to:

amd: Funny how the same crowd calling the DSLR mirror box a caveman design are now the target for (arguable great) MF lenses. While I always loved Zeiss, I sold off mine long time ago and financed my entry into the FF DSLR market. Never looked back to manual focus, as much as I loved my Zeiss lenses ...

Marc: how many EF motors have you seen broken? I had about 10-12 lenses over the years (from the cheapest ones up to the $2,5k ones) with more than 150k shots and I have never ever had any problem with an AF motor. Nor did my friends... Or am I just that lucky to avoid "shitty af motors"? :)

BarnET2: Why on earth does Zeiss want $949,- on a simple 1920 based design
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double-Gauss_lens#mediaviewer/File:DoubleGauss1text.svg

The OPIC from taylor and obson from 1920 looks very similar.
So no R&D in lens design nor in mechanics since it has no AF nor IS.

I just can't fathom where the money has gone too here.

Christmas premiums for the CEOs maybe? :)

You're right, sorry.

For me it's security that counts. Android is a good OS for a gaming teenager or not so important device. People who value their data such as contact lists, calendars, email messages or credit card information should rather switch to more proved systems like iOS or Windows Phone. Android begs for being misused by apps that are distribute here and there across the net.

On Canon EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Preview preview (80 comments in total)
In reply to:

Skrocki: Maybe it is time for DPREVIEW to finally do a complete review of the often maligned Canon EOS-M. I have been shooting with one since December. It is a great little camera that goes with me everywhere and the image quality is wonderful. It is very good in low light.

I'm looking forward to purchasing the new ultra wide image stabilized lens.

Wells, seems you'd lose. :)

Someone made nice cash from out of focus images. Nice one. :) And calling it "background" at 4x5' and asking $200/each, he really doesn't lack self-confidence. :)))

I believe that dishwashers made in this century do their job way better than this kind of hundred-year old piece of equipment. ;)

In reply to:

Henrik Herranen: Again, please, c'mon guys:
Why isn't the sensor size in the list of "Key features"? Without sensor size the f-number doesn't tell, well, much anything. As camera enthusiasts you surely know this, so why isn't sensor size anywhere in this photography oriented site's article?

Example: a 1/2.3" sensor with an f/2.2 lens still collects slightly more light over the sensor area than a 1/3" sensor with an f/1.8 lens, and has a potential for slightly better low-light performance. Leaving sensor size out of the equation is quite misleading.

"...the equation is quite misleading" - now you got it! what sells better than (quite misleading) specs?

Now go working guys to spend another week's salary for a chinese toy that'll be a must-have for a few weeks. :) People are kind of slaves of the modern era where manufacturers tell them what they need.

In reply to:

JEROME NOLAS: Will somebody make a 24mm (36mm eqv.) f 1.8 (2.8) for APS-C DSLR instead? This is insane, it seems that all people are shooting at night or caring about the "creamy bokeh."

Impulses: sure, sorry... I had overlooked the "DSLR" requirement... O:)
