Photoman: One day someone will come up with a app for flash metering, as long as the hardware is there in the phone.

Thanks for the links.

dr8: Certainly - as long as you repair the all too soon electronic breakdown of the lens (silver solder can grow whiskers & short out easily in micro-connections) - of course you can use it forever. However, my mechanical Zuiko & Nikkor lenses have required NO repairs in the 40 years I've had them. I would think that this is more what comes to mind when people think of using something "forever"...

Is that because there is no lead in solder anymore? I believe NASA is still allowed to use lead in their solder.

Canon announce a new camera - 300 comments.
Sony announce a new camera - 800 comments.

What do you read from that?

"The original, out-of-camera clip is on the left, the one edited in GoPro Studios is on the right."

I prefer the original. It looks cleaner to me.

Photoman: I wish Canon were this good at keeping their factory clean. I have seen quite a few lenses with sealed elements that have had fungus in it.

Yes, mushrooms that would cost AUD$350.00 to fix. Expensive mushrooms!

Photoman: Sorry Canon. You left a lot of 1D X customers disappointed and if there not shooting sports, you will see customer buying current/future mirrorless cameras.

@thx1138 Survey of unhappy customers and and service techs. A 7D would be a more reliable camera than a 1DX. Canon Australia aren't the best company to deal with regards to 1DX. Read below.

Photoman: Ouch!!! Puts me off buying Nikon at the moment.

@Barney Only if they had a mirrorless camera, it would. It is suppose to be a F Mount mirrorless, as I have had a friend who saw a prototype last year by Nikon...but don't tell anybody 😉

That is why I own a couple of Sony's ...a Fuji...and a Nikon...because they are all good at certain things.

hypo: Who has been a photographer for more than 5 minutes doesn't know about cameras like the legendary Leica M3?

Who would remember it if it had been branded as the Leica M3 (Typ 738)? No one.

Why on earth do Leica think that labelling their latest creation as the "Leica X-U (Typ 113) is clever?

It must be the crazy marketing dept and they can't count pass 10 ;P

On article GoPro's poor holiday sales lead to staff layoff (124 comments in total)

Products are to over priced and too much cheaper competition in the market. Can't they see all the other brands made in China cheaper?! I bet the 'Big Wigs' up the top didn't lose their jobs.
