In reply to:

Cane: Why does making a camera look like a fake retro 1960's knockoff hailed as beautiful? So you want your HD tv to come in an oak cabinet?

well that would be awesome :D at least oak framing. I always love leather, steel and wood (a hetchett could be a nice example)

i wish they will use more organic / renewable materials on consumer electronics. I hate cheapo plastic,.

On Window cleaners in the On Job challenge (1 comment in total)

Dramatic foto. I think it deserves higher degree.

It shows so clear that, "in the world there are easy and riskfree jobs that machines are doing but such jobs as this one, humans has to put their life on danger.

I feel terribly sad, whenever a human being dies at their work day, during their job.

A Rugged all weather sealed 645 camera, with a serious full fiilled 40 mpx. what else i would ever wish to have?

Answer: a budget to invest :(

Sometimes i just want to quit my job, want to take a loan and put this in to in the middle of a square, and then built "my studio" around it. I so much wish to do my own job as a pro fotographer ...

Damn it, why i a just an ameteur fotographer with my P&S camera .... :(

On Preview:nikon-coolpix-a (442 comments in total)

I am using Olympus XZ-1 , and also its new rival, they want to keep its light power at F 1,8 - 2,5. And to keeping its power They make a big lens, that it does not fit behind lens blades... Smilar thing occoured in G 1X of canon. Well it also has APS-C (DX ) size sensor... many times bigger compare to XZ-1

Well you might say "well they are both zoom cameras, its a fixed lens!" then how can you tell me Leica´s X1 & X2 ?

Its just interesting to see, such a big sensor, preety small diameter glass.

The United Nations, NATO and Pre-Cold War Soviet orginasations should get together and declare this;

"From this on, we forbid all the electronic companies all around the world, no matter what they would ever producing, the new models should come ealiest in every 3 even 4 years!! We declare war on companies who just put a new jacket to their old technology and put it to market in every 11 moths !!!

We Especially forbid the production of photo sensors smaller than 2/3" sensors for any telephones and 1" sensors for P&S cameras !!! "

Now, that would be the new world order in my definations :D

Its an "oficiall announcement" that all the K 01 ´s that anyone would ever buy will consider already "antique"

I think this value should consider more in coming decade and later.

eaa: Yes, lots of stitch flaws, but I'm sure they will brush it up over time.
I.e. here a whole building just fades into the surrounding pavement. Also note the very "mini" black ford Ford Fiesta in the upper right corner of the crop :)

those producers were make the whole project to recieve some "woows!" and "likes" and "share" in Facebook,

but here, its just and ordinary panorama, even has failure :D

Its anway an amazing afford, well thought and well made project. As you wish, hopefully they will keep upgrading constantly

On Hands-on with the Sony Xperia Z tablet post (14 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ben O Connor: It has such a big device , but very small camera glass as well sensor... why? Why does sony keep following other tablet company´s mistakes ?

(well, maybe Carl Zeiss is avaliable from Nokia only , in terms of telephones, but is it a telephone ? Even they still can´t use, their sony G lenses are enough awesome... )

Main Reason:
They also want to sell a camera.

In previous days, Nokia made "cell phone" a magic tool, and now Apple even risking the future of paper ! (even newsweek will not be publish on paper anymore!!!)

So i wish to see a combination that;
Do not need to have home key,
no phone neccesarily (just a attachable headphone set would help)
no car keys (even else thing which "only" start up your car)
no wallet, even no credit carrds (Its my "own" tablet, so access directly to my bank account)
already no music player (walkman ipod etc)

so why not a enthusiast P&S camera ??? Cant they fit Sony 1 inch sensor, with a bit worse lens than, RX100 ?

I also can´t leave my olympus XZ-1 behind me ever, but even this small white colored friendly camera could make people disturbed, when you are daily lifetime shooting, That table would just solve that kinda issues, and make our hands a bit more free...
