On Senior Nokia imaging engineer is joining Apple post (35 comments in total)

Even apple realized that, they are lacking of innovation in hardware... Nokia has the best lens-sensor mixture out there without any software app need.

not just for Lumia 1020, but also for Lumia 925, 930, 1520 and tablet.

What about windows 8.1 ?

I have a 1520 since last Xmas, and its an amazing piece of tech. Its really un-seperable piece o my daily life.

Will it be possible to update it to 8.1. ? There is no info on Finnish web page of Nokia yet...

On Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review preview (2251 comments in total)

Why is everyone so angry!! Seriously.
There are people "out there" (not me) who want to touch something Leica... M's are costing a bit alot, even second hands (both lens &body) are not friendly...
So here is a working class hobbyists leica interchangeable lens cam, with a stunning style. I personally prefer a leica X1, but it lacks a lot digi stuff, and X2 has a horrible hunch back for evf!!!! So even this is nicer with its inner feature... Just enjoy or run away, don't make yourselves upset about it...

On Sony SLT-A77 II First Impressions Review preview (684 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ben O Connor: Its a great camera. It ONLY lacks a true OVF as in pentax K-3.
End of the day its a DSLR then why electric VF ????? Apart from that its a perfect... But perfection is not anything being "apart" from a single elementh right ? ;)

I got the point (Kind of) any mirrorless range finder cam has no OVF coz there is no mirror !!! (Well they have a bigger screen that EVF on the back but anyway :) there it is ; the 2nd one!)
But why, I have to carry something huge (has a mirror inside) and still has no OVF ? would it getting any bigger by the ovf ? Seriously ??

On 1991 Nikon-Kodak hack was first DSLR in space article (67 comments in total)
In reply to:

Just a Photographer: Pretty advanced for that time!

But ironically the Shuttle doesn't fly anymore, Kodak went broke and Nikon is to follow if they don't start innovating soon....

Why would Nikon break? They can add D800 sensor to D5 body... And D5s can be with D800E sensor...

nothin' to be worried ;)

( well surely any p&s cam will disappear smaller than 1" sensor or worse than F.2.8 aperture.. And no life for any mirror less system which has smaller than micro 43 or focusing in minute the technology aka, eos m ;) )

On Olympus sued for $273 million over accounting scandal article (42 comments in total)

What is the ISO number ? What is the F number? What is the zooming range ?

As a photography enthusiasts, I care these number. Price comes later (however it can stop me to buy something, if its out of my budget.).
I guess here is that kinda web page. Or is it ?
