On Fujifilm UK previews customized X-series cameras at TPS news story (125 comments in total)
In reply to:

AbrasiveReducer: The only bad thing about this is that when companies start with the custom color, limited edition, laser-cut box, certificate of authenticity it usually means they were in a meeting, sales numbers weren't good enough and somebody came up with this idea.

If it goes well, mark my words, there will be X series anniversary editions, unique serial numbers saved for celebrities. I don't think you can gold plate these bodies but don't rule it out.

@papa natas Wrong on this one; X10 had orb issues in early production series. Did you mean sticky aperture blades?

JohnEwing: Firmware update needed?

Likely, there will be a firmware upgrade adding 50 mm frame-lines in the OVF, right?

On Fujifilm X-T1 First Impressions Review preview (1657 comments in total)
In reply to:

Kevin Sutton: Anyone apart from me think this camera looks rather ugly? That faux-pentaprism is not very pretty, unlike the E-M1 version that harks back to the OM-2, which was a truly pretty camera. Cheers Kevin

I think it is a matter of visual design reference - if your past was full of OM cameras, surely E-M1 looks right. But in the plethora of film cameras from the 70’s and 80’s, you will find plenty of design similarities with Fujica (and Contax as mentioned) from the past. And in that context X-T1 looks just right.

On Adobe hack affects 38 million users, not 2.9 million news story (158 comments in total)

Now, how about that; Adobe continues on the Open Source path, now also with Photoshop - unintentionally though!

Anyway; no more Acrobat Reader on my machines - seems to be one of the best documented platforms for security breaches...

On Nikon video hints at long-desired 'digital FM' news story (554 comments in total)
In reply to:

victorian squid: They really should have virtual film. Instead of the useless creative effects they've got now for direct to JPG, why not virtual film? Kodachrome, Ektachrome, Velvia, Optima, Pan, and associated ASA/ISO. That would be a direct to JPG effect I might actually use.

It'd be even funnier if you had to "wind" the sucker for each shot. And, you'd have to spend extra for a battery grip that would allow you to shoot multiple shots in succession! Nikon could bleed folks an extra $400 for that goody alone!

Oh - didn't see Frank's comments below - I guess I wasn't as facetious as I thought!

...as for physically "winding the film", this was done in R-D1 - you had to do it!

falconeyes: @anybody commenting on price:

The 3000$ claim was fake, there is nothing known about the price. DPR article has been updated too.

A strong blow to Hasselblad; camera manufacturers start releasing cameras with wooden grips on their own! How did this happen? No one saw it coming...

QuarryCat: I never liked the portrait with the peering eyes - i don't like the artificial green background - but I love his other, even more realistic picture with the hands and the living eyes - thanks a lot for showing it here!

What background? I only saw eyes...

People arguing about the relevance of such a lens and about this type of news being relevant to DPReview. Well, a newly developed Petzval lens is certainly much more relevant and likely to bring joy and fun back into photography than an insanely priced Hasselblad re-branded Sony compact camera with a wooden grip. And the reviving of such a lens (by crowd-funding) is much more of photography news than the absurd marketing ploy by the investor that has taken over one of the truly inventive companies of the past.

So sad with the demise of this iconic company! What's next? An overpriced Sony Xperia phone with a wooden handle? Could be more visionary and meaningful though...

On Leica announces $1300 special edition 'G-Star RAW' D-Lux 6 news story (266 comments in total)

JohnEwing: The Colonel's lady and Molly O'Grady are sisters under the skin.

"The Ladies" by Rudyard Kipling
http://www.poetryloverspage.com/poets/kipling/ladies.html

Judy O'Grady (Molly is a typo), a prostitute, and the Colonel's Lady (and all women) are all alike, seemed to be the conclusion. Nowadays the analogy is used to point out differences that are only superficial - fits the context here quite well...

Dames01: I don't understand the reactions to this product announcement. If this is not a camera for you, then just ignore it!
Leica appeals to people who have a lot of money and are looking for something exclusive, and from that perspective I am sure it will appeal to these select few.

I am fully with you on this. Most comments on this article are of a somewhat sarcastic nature. Use of smileys should be mandatory... :-)

Agree, but wouldn't want to see DPReview become Top Gear Photography. And in line with the comment above by tabloid "Am looking forward to DP in depth review of the camera", this news will not make much impact - beyond entertainment. My concern is credibility, not of the Leica brand (they must know what they are doing), but DPReview content...

Why not look at it in this way; Panasonic, a well-known camera manufacturer, is selling cameras under its own brand as well as branded limited editions like G-Star/Leica, Paul Smith/Leica, other fashion brands...

Interestingly, my browser suggested "d'luxe" when when I typed "dlux" - kind of underlines the nature of this "Frankenstein" camera... ;-)

Kind of agree, but then this hardly qualifies as photography news...
