I wonder where the intellectual property came from for this product?

I usually think of the 30s and 40s in b&w but I will admit most of these are very pleasing and do not detract from the era.

On 5 Reasons why I haven't used my DSLR for months article (591 comments in total)

As usual it depends.

If I'm shooting something that's really important to me I take my DSLR and gear. As someone said before me you don't see the Olympics being shot with iPhones or MFT.

If I'm walking the streets I usually take MFT.

I have to be fairly desperate to use my iPhone

What about Capture NX2 as an editing tool?

Hummm. I can see that on its face this is a difficult question. When is altering an image too much? Before I answer let me say that as a reader of the event I want to see it as if I were there in person. That means I want an honest portrayal of the event. I expect color, contrast and improved dynamic range etc to take place before I see it. What makes the RAW image the proper representation of the event? Don't add "pixels" but please enhance what you capture to help me understand what really happened. Also remember, the image is not shown in a vacuum. It is usually is accompanied by a story

That's really too bad.

Maybe this will be a Netflex/Apple Maps/Coke Classic moment which turned out to be a big whoops then back to the old model.

With the exception of one photo I was completely underwhelmed by the rest.

On Time magazine showcases Top 10 photos of 2012 article (147 comments in total)

I agree with what was said before me
top photojournal images, maybe but certainly not top ten photos for 2012 and yes, nauseatingly politically correct

Colors appear to be faded in most shots., nothing that can't be fixed. quite a shallow DOF wide open

Debankur Mukherjee: To me the main disadvantage of all these mirrorless cameras, be it from any manufacturer is the Lens. Look at them the lens kill the portability of these cameras. You cannot put them in your pocket with such hugh lenses.

Give me a Mirrorless large sensor body with a short “foldable” zoom like the coolpix lineup.

If it is not truly portable then I don’t mind buying the D3100 for everyday use. Far better body, lens and sensor.

I also carry my S95 everywhere. I want an S95 form factor with the largest possible sensor

jorg14: Just seems to me that if I can't put it in my pocket, I'm going to have to strap it around my neck. If I do that, there's not that much difference in weight or size between a full size DSLR, CX or 4/3's. The body may be a little smaller, but the lens sure isn't.

I agree. I will always have my DSLR but I'm also on the lookout for something pocketable with the best IQ.
