On Ten one-of-a-kind cameras from the 21st century article (248 comments in total)

I think that in those days digicams had their designs emerged out from a blank sheet of paper and a pencil. The 707 shows the way. The design was swallowed from marketeers. Cams still adopt a design as some film is still at their backs waiting to roll from one side to another, a rather ridiculous approach based only in our habits. I think a great opportunity was lost in terms of design and functionality mainly because of the stereotype for what a true good camera should look like...
BTW E-10 was a great cam and a lot of people in those days earned a lot of money shooting catalogs and such for web purposes...

aris14: It's very common in Greece to turn b/w photos in coloured ones for people when die, just to print it in porcelain and then put it in their graves. Brrr..!
It's rather low bred to try to overpass the original media.
I guess the next step is to make again the statues of Hermes of Praxiteles, Aphrodite of Milo and such...
Enough with these low bred staff...

True fact! Statues in ancient Greece were painted. Colour was used to give an extra reality. I wouldn't mind to see them in colour if someone could really estimate the real colours they were painted, I would like to see them painted. Since we cannot do it in nowadays due to lack of evidence I prefer them, as all I guess, the way they are. Not "rebuild", neither "corrected" or assumed...
They are just fine as they are...

Zvonimir Tosic: This is disgusting. Not only we believe we can make "better look" by "fixing" the "defects" of old, but don't give a damn about the intention, feelings and vision of the original artist in the first place.
What's next? "Henri Cartier Bresson, 'The Decisive Moment' now in full colour, and with happier mood in all pictures?"

We understand history from its remaining, we do not reconstruct its evidence to understand it.
Please don't misunderstand the above and mix it with the finest scientific work to to visualize creatures, artifacts and constructions for various reasons.

M4/3 is a winning format for most people's need I guess.
This baby seems to be superb.
Pana made a great job...
Who believed it some 10 years ago that Pana is going to be amongst the leading players in photography?

reginalddwight: Looks like you guys had a fun time at the ballpark.

Photos are somewhat decent for a superzoom "compact".

More than decent I could say, serious portable tool for a tabloids paparazzi...

On 2013 Waterproof Camera Roundup preview (123 comments in total)

It's funny to see the prices apart anything else...
Why these cams cost these money and not 20 $ more or less at least according to its features...
And the diffs in pricing in USA and Europe...
Silly..!

aris14: We need cheaper equipment of top quality.
That said IMO right now is the 4/3 format that allows us to have top IQ and glasses with reasonable cost. I think that current technology suggests that today we can have at least equal with top 24 x 36 mm sensors a couple of years ago.
The 24 x 36 sensors may remain for special projects and demands along with larger ones.
In less than 5-6 years a sensor of let's say 12 x 18 should deliver the same IQ in every aspect with today's top guns...
The rest is marketing...

The main problem with sensors is temperature and only temperature. The technology to reduce noise (mainly produced because of temperature) is rather accessible yet some expensive. I didn't say that bigger formats are/will be obsolete. I am saying that at least the 90% of pictures taken for any reason can be taken with cams which have to be affordable and offering more than satisfying IQ to the 99% of users.
I am not referring to special projects for which, we have to admit it, only a bunch of pro photographers can deliver.
After all photography is something you see in printed form.
Something we usually overlook.

On Fujifilm X100S Review preview (486 comments in total)

Ι find it extremely difficult to see the use of these cams anyway...
All these about street photography which needs some peculiar cams is IMO rather a philology.
Street photography as a term/art does not need a certain cam with certain abilities or whatsoever, just something handy and reliable, top IQ is not its main quest.
The only positive thing in these cams is that they explore miniaturization.
