On MIT proposes new approach to HDR with 'Modulo' camera article (114 comments in total)

I applaud the technological advancements but this is really more of a matter of taking poorly composed photos in harsh mid-day light.

Retzius: on another note... Nikon going to very large front elements and 'E' models with electronic aperture motors is an obvious attempt to do everything they can to innovate without changing the F mount.

they would be better off creating a new mount like Canon did with a larger throat and more contacts. it would give them more versatility as they migrated to the inevitable mirrorless models

Actually, they did the worst thing possible. They just created incompatibility WITHIN their existing mount.

So now the purchase price is called a "pledge"?

Instead of a customer you are a "backer"?

Now THATS good marketing.

Makes sense

Nikon and Canon are serious about mirrorless?

Really? Show me their serious mirrorless cameras

Market share decrease is never a move in the right direction...

Nikon is corporation that exists to make a profit. They are a publicly traded company with share holders that demand quarterly dividend. Sorry to rain on your parade, but as idealistic as your post about making "tools" might sound to you, its gibberish.

In the digital age, you attract people via innovation or by making things easier.. easier for them to take a picture or easier for them to share their photos. Unless Nikon wants to dwindle down to become a small company like Leica that caters to a very small group of loyal buyers or rich collectors, they same old way they are producing and marketing cameras will not work. The numbers show it is failing. They won't make a profit, they won't attract investors, they will lose money, they will downsize, and the rest will be history.

Have you looked at the CIPA numbers for this year and for last month on Dslr sales. Its a big line that points down at a 45 degree angle...

They have shrinking sales numbers year over year and month over month.

Thats not moving in the right direction. If they are going to reverse that trend, doing minor tweaks to existing designs and reiterating the same camera bodies over and over agin with minor changes are not going to do it.

I see your point, but at the same time successful companies don't think like that.

They will put the work in to creating a breakthrough product to separate themselves from the competition.

If Sony thought that way I doubt we would see any of the amazing mirrorless cameras they have been putting out lately...

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 Review preview (446 comments in total)

Impressive subject tracking results! I dare say they are better than most entry level Dslrs and would be more than enough for most parents shooting kids sports.

If entry level mirrorless cameras can produce these kinds of subject tracking results the argument for a traditional Dslr is very hard to make.
