YuriS: Where is Sony A7????
Allen Yang: I think most readers will go for Canon 70D or Nikon D7100. It's still an era of Canikon. Sony needs time to release more lens. Other brands are just for a few people who have "special needs".
Considering you are buying a system and not just a camera, I tend to agree. 3 decades of Canon and Nikon domination have lead to their systems being far more complete with much more latitude to move up or down as needs change.
bossa: The K-3 smokes the D7100 in any comparison apart from maybe focus tracking. This comparison is a travesty for the following reasons: A. The sensor shake reduction mechanism can do (i) amazing star tracking when combined with the O-GPS, (ii) horizon correction (iii) sensor shift (shift lens anyone?) (iv) sensor shake based AA filter
B. The new hi-res exposure system C. the silky shutter D. 25 cross point AFE. f2.8 AF system that works way down low (in the dark almost)F. Huge buffer for 23 RAW shots at 8 fps G. superior ergonomics (ISO right where you need it and DOF Preview on the shutter button lever etc etc)H. The Green Button and numerous exposure modes Nikon never heard of.
The K-3 is a no brainer when compared to the D7100.
PS: The new AF system also uses the new hi-res exposure system to differentiate and track.
Problem is that you can't use a body without lenses. Pentax has a "limited" selection of very expensive lenses (pun intended) and dwindling third party support.
fjbyrne: Not everyone - I don't see a Linux version. Wouldn't buy it anyway.
Your choice of OS limits your option, not Adobe.
Andreas Stuebs: Can someone explain to me, why the US price is a mere $9.99 and the European price is €12.29? BTW I do not need a German version
Probably 10 euros + VAT. The $9.99 excludes taxes in the US.
I know 10 Euros is not equal to 10 dollars, but it makes it easier to market.
DenisBBergeron: I don't want to rent something, I want to own it.
Well thank Gimp, Google and Apple I can own other software.
Jogger: Its funny that people have no issue with $900 iPads (replaced annually of course), $700 phones, $100/month phone plans, $10 month XBL accounts, $5 daily cups of coffee, $1.5/L of gasoline...
But, paying $10 a month for a software that is part of their business (ie. allows you to make money) is somehow treasonous.
People will pay for $150 LR and $600 Photoshop, so money is not the issue. The issue is owning the tools you need to do work.
What if in the future you could only rent cameras and lenses?
tkbslc: I think we know who the real "Assez" are here.
I guess I could have gone with a Foghorn Leghorn reference, then.
It was a lame pun attempt, yes, but sometimes I can't help myself.
I think we know who the real "Assez" are here.
Jogger: I still have a 4mp Sony S85, circa 2001, with an 1/1.8 sensor... the enthusiast cameras back then used 2/3 sensors.
Back when basic digital cameras were selling for $750+, they could afford to put larger sensors in. You still get a LOT more for your money today.
Casio needs to get back in the game, but releasing an XZ-1 clone 3 years late doesn't impress anyone.
They should have gone with a big sensor or crazy fast prime or something unique.
Timj351: The zooming capabilities of the Nokia are very misleading in their commercials. They are trying to make it look like the phone has 10x or more zoom. If you digitally zoomed even a 38mp camera from the back of a room so that the stage filled the frame you would up with an image that isn't even a megapixel in size. Not that I think the Nokia is bad for what it is. It's just that they are basically lying to the public about how far the digital zoom actually goes.
I agree, but I do enjoy the humor about annoying parents trying to get the shot. I've got school age kids and events are full of eye-rolling behavior from parents,
Artistico: I wonder when Nokia will realise that they have to go Android to get more sales, though. The main reason they are losing market shares is first hanging onto the archaic Symbian platform and then going Windows Mobile at a time when all the other major players were under the Android umbrella or iOS. Result: No one bothers making apps for Windows Mobile because the market is too small to be worth the effort. In this day and age, it doesn't matter how good your phone's camera is if you cannot get the apps you are used to on your new phone.
I'd be happy to get a Nokia again, as I really like their cameras and having one would be like bringing a cheapish compact everywhere - but only if they switch to Android. Otherwise it's too much of a compromise for me, and for many others.
Microsoft are offering the ability to run your own Linux on top of MS Hyper-V cloud clusters. They aren't running Linux themselves.
Never. Microsoft bought Nokia's phone division.
Denver Wedding Photographers: Why release such an expensive piece of glass, only to have such poor wide performance? Clearly its intended market is those who want wide open apertures.
What flavor was the Kool-Aid, Dave?
So it basically is equal to the 50mm f1.4 G until f5.6 where it get a bit sharper in the middle. That's TOTALLY worth $1250 premium.
This is an exciting concept at about $800. At $1500, I don't think it is going to have many takers.
completelyrandomstuff: Think of 20-40mm like a normal prime with some extra room. I can't understand why people complain over a small zoom range in a lens that is a size of a usual prime (with zoom range of zero!).
Because it's slow and expensive. Normal primes are f1.4 or f1.8.
Hugowolf: It is Lego, not Legos. Like sheep, they are not easily enumerable. Sheeps?
I thought it was like lambs.
