On Sony Australia releases a3500 with new kit lens news story (136 comments in total)
In reply to:

antares103: For what reason would the camera be released only in Australia? This is a serious question.

Since it is for Australia only, one would have to guess it is some kind of local market condition. Need for lower price point maybe? Some weird import regulation? (I cant' imagine what though)

On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview (423 comments in total)

I have had the RX10 about a month and I am very happy with it. I would note however that it is a bit slow in AF/ shutter lag for photographing fast moving things like running dogs, active kids. Not that you can't do it or that the RX10 is slow. It is that just at this price level, cheaper DSLRs are much more responsive for those kinds of subjects. Image quality is excellent.

On Judge strikes down fine against drone photographer news story (127 comments in total)
In reply to:

CameraLabTester: The Big Boss wants to regulate the thingamajig to prevent drone aficionados from slicing each other up, really...

Look at:

Segway.

... and what happened to it's inventor.

.

I am not sure what happened to the Segway inventor. The new owner of the company died going off a cliff in a Segway accident, but not the inventor (wikipedia article List of Inventors killed by their Inventions.)

I did read recently of young man killed by his model aircraft from a high speed collision. But I don't see that hazard with cameras hovering taking pictures - bullt to be stable and slow.

Japanese tourist. All the footsteps in the sand are where kids and adults were walking and playing earlier. Now everything is all quiet.

The first half of the year there was a drought. When the rains came later, everything that normally would have bloomed earlier all bloomed at the same time. The fields were full of flowers of all kinds.

On VF4 clock photo in OpticsEngineer's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

When you look into the VF4 viewfinder, the word Germany on the bottom label of the clock is readable. With the VF2 viewfinder, the word Germany cannot be read as it is just too fuzzy. Both viewfinders are very good. But you can tell a difference if you look for it.

This picture is viewed better standing a few feet from the computer monitor. It takes on a bit of a three dimensional feeliing.

Tiltable screen on Sony made this shot a lot easier than it would have been on a some other DSLRs

Right after I took this photo my cat got up, walked on the keyboard and started adding people to my ignore list. (Bad kitty, so I brushed her off the keyboard and deleted her suggested ignores.)

Careful reading of the FAA text indicates that it is okay for an electronic object to be held during takeoff and landing. (The person who wrote the article seemed to miss that point saying that a cell phone has to be stowed)
