Tim Gander: If I've understood this correctly, Getty is complaining that Google have destroyed the professional photography industry far more efficiently than Getty could. Genius.

A bit like choosing between if Hitler or Stalin was more destructive to the world...

So Google has a better business plan than Getty's...Karma's a barch Getty.

Photoman: What about on a Sony A7X body???

I meant like a A7/A7R/A7MII/A7RMII. It would work best with the A7RMII I would imagine.

Will it improve AF speed on the original A7/A7r?

Man I use to sell pallets of this stuff back in the day. Sad really. I read the Fuji US will still make it. They must have a separate plant then Fuji Japan.

Boss of Sony: I remember a photography forum thread complaining about people interacting with nature and spoiling the photographers' ability to get a good shot. About 20 obsessed photographers were lining up to photograph a beautiful river somewhere in the U.S. Some tourist jumped in and had a swim, and all the photographers were annoyed because it ruined their shot. To me this shows the insane obsessiveness and hypocrisy of some nature photographers. I would have ignored the photographers and had a swim too (except not in the U.S, because every second person in the U.S. has a gun).

@jrn145 He meant to say, EVERY person has an average of 2 guns each ;)

@junk1 "Out of 330m Americans, very few die from guns." I believe the figure is around 30,000 gun related deaths and yes this figure is small compared to 330m...except to the 30,000 that died a violent death.

On article Polaroid launches Eyeball panoramic tripod head (19 comments in total)

What about Spinpod. Seems better value, as it can take a phone, GoPro and even a DSLR with a small prime.

Didn't see this coming. It seems a better use of the 1" sensor instead of the stupid V series cameras.

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.
