On Chinese government orders Nikon to stop selling D600 article (228 comments in total)

The Chinese government will shut you down in a heartbeat for not following proper business practice. Proper business practice consists of showing the proper financial consideration to the officials of the government.

On Am I missing something here? article (623 comments in total)

I'm an easily bored gadget-loving idiot with money to burn. Will I like this, or should I just buy something with an Apple logo? I mostly care about impressing dumb girls and dudes with handlebar moustaches and ideas about what app is cool.

peevee1: DPR, you have a mistake in your spec table for AW110, it starts from f/2.8, not f/3.9 like AW110.

Mine's been good. Rapid changes in temp, pressure, and moisture levels are challenging. Occasionally a little condensation, but nothing outside of the realm of ordinary physics.

Solution in search of a problem.

On Fujifilm X-A1 real-world and test scene samples article (105 comments in total)

Are these taken with exposure on auto? Every one of them looks significantly underexposed to me. Fine on screen maybe, but they'll print awfully dark. If that's auto, I'd be using +2 compensation all the time.

CaseyComo: Having seen some samples, I now fully understand why this design died out. In plain language, these images look like sh1t. Blurry (not soft) and the bokeh is HIDEOUS. People who buy this in a quest for something different...well, I think you'll regret it once the novelty wears off.

The Wright Flyer was a groundbreaking aircraft in its day. I sure as heck would not fly one.

CaseyComo: Why not just be modern and crapify your photos with a computer like everyone else?

Hating is fun.

Danny: Darn, I like it. All the negative comments, I don't get it. This is a resurrection of an authentic lens that takes images with that 19th century nostalgic 'look'.
It gives me wet collodion dreams.

It's because people are dicks. BTW, I think this thing is idiotic, and ridiculous-looking, too. So, um, that makes me...look, at least I am aware of it. That's the first step.

On Google working on RAW imaging for Android post (84 comments in total)

To me, a world where Google controls _everything_ is not a great thing.

yonsarh: compact and smartphone cameras are toy cameras.

Thanks! I have always wondered what role the little house played in the camera's operation.

CaseyComo: I like the output of Nikon's own software, but the interface is horrendous and the performance is pathetic. I long ago migrated to DxO.

For me, no batch processsing and no reorganization of effects are dealbreakers. It's too bad, because I think the output is very good.

It's nostalgia, not nationalism, that's the true last refuge of the scoundrel.

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II Review preview (513 comments in total)
In reply to:

Fotomaker01: Given the price of this camera (and its optional electronic viewfinder) it is a crime that Sony doesn't provide a printed real (vs. Quick Start) manual for the camera. There is also no CD with the manual or other software disc included with the camera. And, the Web-based version of the manual is a pain to read - it's all topline topics only and requires clicking to expand any given topic. There is just no facility for the speed and ease of flipping back and forth b/wn manual pages that there would be with a printed, with decent sized font (geared to the eyesight of middle-aged people who can afford the blankety blank camera) manual. For such a complex camera that is so feature rich, a printed manual is a must!

Agreed. Printed manual is useful. Want.
