KSV: Very interesting. "Made in China" will never catch up, this is for sure.

Well Made in Japan used to be a byword for a shoddy copy of something made in the West so perhaps not.

Timbukto: I thought the first image was a fancy optical adjustment bench. But it's just hand sanitizer station. I think Chipotle needs some of those.

Also why on earth would anyone need to unbox a unit to QC vs just QC prior to boxing? Shady boxing workers? Or just nonsensical workflow?

I think Timbukto is thinking way too hard about this :-)

Or Kung Fu Panda edition.

Shifter: The Panda is probably the dumbest most useless animal on the planet.

Besides Humans you mean?

No it would be Zeiss branded tape.

M1963: So, if I got it right, you record image and sound separately - the former on film, the latter on a memory card. What a fuss!
It's hard to understand the purpose of this camera, even for me - and I do most of my shooting on 135 black and white film and listen to vinyl LPs!
On the other hand, calling a camera which records 2m30s long videos a 'movie' camera... it's a joke, isn't it?

How is the Instax a "joke" exactly?

In reply to:

D200_4me: YouTube will quickly be filled with 'reviews' from guys talking about specs that have never seen or touched the camera.

They are called "Technical" reviews whatever that means.

Jonathan F/2: "Von" Wong's work is cheesy as hell. His pictures are the same over-processed junk you find in a Photoshop User magazine. The only thing this guy does well is market himself with that ridiculous name he gave himself. He's in the same category as Gary Fong, Scott Kelby and the rest of the televangelists of the photography world preaching to creatively impaired sheep of the world.

Could not agree more.

This is scary news. Is the camera industry doomed? How are companies like Fuji, Panasonic, Olympus doing?

The bigger story here is is this the beginning of the implosion of the photography industry in general? Samsung are a highly profitable company from what I know and could easily sustain some losses in the camera division if they saw a future in this business. Is this sign of things to come?

On article Nikon announces development of flagship D5 DSLR (442 comments in total)
In reply to:

Paul Farace: Not much news here. I guess Nikon is promising us pie in the sky... it will be interesting to see some hard news eventually. We'll be standing by, waiting.

Pie in the sky means an empty wish or promise or something that sounds good but is unlikely to happen. So this announcement is not pie in the sky.

prtsmnn1: What a waste of brain space ! Not going to waste my time here.
Many companies make leather items for a lot of different purposes, nothing new here. Where do you suppose all the leather comes from.
Many boot companies use Bision . You can order Bision boots and belts From LL Bean .
You can go out to many upscale restaurants and order Bision to eat.
I pay for what I want with my money so if you don't like it then what is that to me?

Just when you think DPR comments can't go any lower...

D200_4me: No surprise. Other than photo nerds like us, who else is buying regular cameras these days? Take a look around at your nearest tourist attraction. You'll see mostly smartphones snapping photos now. You'll see a lot more proper cameras at epic places that attract photogs like Yosemite and other well-known famous landscapes/points of interest.

In my experience, no. I still see a lot of cameras but mainly consumer DSLRs. It is somewhat rare I see a Fuji X camera or any mirrorless cameras though. Of course I do see a lot of people using phones too. P&S cameras seem hard hit as well.

So you never make a mistake at work? Like ever?

Every single manufacturer in history makes screwups. NASA make screwups even with the billions they have at their disposal and the lives that depend on them. I bet you make screwups. We all make screwups. So demanding they should never ever make mistakes is not realistic. They are proactively fixing their mistake which is the best thing we can expect of any company.

Every company screws up from time to time. It's inevitable. The story here is that Olympus is actively fixing an issue with their product. They should be appluaded for doing so.

Baudesign: Picture 2 shows poor assembling quality.

It's an "engineering prototype" so that's impossible to judge from these photos?

Mssimo: I would bet no cameras supports UHS-III. The card reader that ships with the card does not even support UHS-III " the card is shipped with a UHS-II SD card-to-USB reader"

Why can't people talk in a civil way in here? Sigh.

Horshack: "High Speed AF to Capture the Decisive Moment"

Like the moment when the wife finds out you just spent $3300 on yet another camera.

Significant even :-)
