On Casio Japan introduces Exilim EX-ZR3000 and EX-ZR60 article (66 comments in total)

If it was like the old days it should have GPS, full QWERTY keyboard, solar panel for charging, scientific calculator, connection with internet and watch as well as two flash units, cell phone, sound recorder and mic...

Maybe it's just me, but I 'll never comprehend the way Canons render light or lighter areas. Any Canon... This one is silly overpriced for what it is, just a me too product...
Btw how vicious is s/o offering a super zoom camera w/o VF..?
I guess less than the guys who 'll buy it...!

Ι like those ideas from tax hunters all over the world...
The next step is Greece to claim rights in all languages for using Greek etymology words -say 1 cent for a 100 such words- used in media or books and we will pay back our debt in less than a year... Even the etymology of the word stop shows it's a Greek word... Huray!!!

Some 10 years ago the guys from Bentley expressed to some people their target group: People who can afford to spend more than a 1m$ annually for personal expenses exclusively (in those days were considered to 1,130,000 people all over the world).
A target well defined and honest to their approach.
I am under the impression that no guys in the photography industry will ever set a similar clearly defined target due to a lot of reasons, mainly because their lack of visualizing the needs of the market they aim, apart the market consisting of the photographic core people or its various peripheral markets with little or greater success. I think Leica's people move towards this direction more or less by simply redefining the words jewel and gem.

aris14: Αnother overpriced me-too product..?

I recall the Jac Daniel's tv commercial with some guys tossing things in a casque waiting the bourbon to mature. Just like Canon guys do...

On 2015 Superzoom Camera Roundup article (166 comments in total)

The only reason to buy these extremities for a purpose other than casual shooting, is to use it for capturing celebrities sunbathing w/wo swim suits. You don't even need Tcons or similar staff, so you are light and you don't feel frustrated if your equipment falls in hands of goons. The same stands for voyeurs too.
An other use is to mount them on a tripod and to connect them to a big screen or projector for use in bars and restaurants for atmospheric purposes.

On Canon EOS Rebel T6s Review preview (456 comments in total)
In reply to:

STR54: Boy, after reading all these expert comments it must be an absolute miracle that my plasticky, bulky, slow, next to no DR sensor Canon t2i is still able to snap a pic without totally falling apart!

@brendon1000:
I agree and I have good reasons for that, but that does not change my point of view referring to photographers' abilities as you also say.
Btw I am not a fan in anything, maybe except chocolates.

Although I am not a Canikon fan, although I have decided in the past to approve tenths of thousands $ for Canons cams purchasing for professional reasons (Nikon was asleep at that time), I really cannot find a reason why a t2i/t3i user cannot produce excellent images.
It's the human that counts not the tool. Let us be serious.

On Leica Q First Impressions Review preview (568 comments in total)

Nice generic shape for pictogram, retro-contemporary design approach, no reason to exist as a cam other than status symbol in vacations for obvious reasons.

aris14: My sense is that in the next 5 years there will be awesome changes in photography, mainly based upon companies culture and ability of perception.
If dinosaurs (Canikons) wouldn't adopt either will die or will be moved to other ecosystems...

Turbsy, I will avoid to characterize your reply. I also will not bother to clarify anything. I guess that anything does not comply with your habits /perceptions is out of the question and I cannot waste my time. Be well.

I also did not say anything predicting the Dslr death. Pls stop interpreting and read the lines only. End of the story.

aris14: Α jewel that practically all photography lovers would like to have.
Last Leica's pix I saw were the pix from an X1 of a friend pro.
There were kids portraits shot in BW (natural B&W) for his exhibition.
A couple of those pix (circa 50) required a heavier retouch in PP than minimum, all done in LR.
The result was awesome.
To my opinion a fair to good pix can be PPed in various excellent BW conversion s/w for excellent results. I understand the way purist photogs approach, no matter if you can get even better results with PP from a color image. The only thing you cannot handle in PP is the quality of the lens, this very fine characteristics an excellent glass can deliver.

How..., you are right, but can you tell the difference in printed images, one shot with a monochrome cam, the other shot in B&W mode of one cam and the third after conversion from color?
Pixels are the same and what values those pixels represent is in the hands of the guy who knows what and how those pixels will be printed and in which values.
Bottom line is a matter of DR and lens.

If interested please read from bottom to the top...

5. Production cost for an image can be easily 10 times bigger than ought to be if we do not do our job with a pencil a paper and a calculator. After all photography is a job done at "home". "Outdoor/field/studio" is simply the implementation of the job...
