On Fujifilm launches updated grips for X-E and X-Pro cameras news story (118 comments in total)
In reply to:

Kirppu: Hey camera manufacturers one tip to prevent these after sell ripoffs. But the grip there in the first place. A camera should have a grip they are not smartphones.

My logic goes like this. As long as the grip is about fraction smaller than the smallest lense for the system it's logical and all good. Making tiny, huge or no grip at all doesn't make sense in my head.
Small grip doesn't make the bounding box that much smaller or travel friendly. Also I never tought some one would really want a camera without a grip...

I like the way light outlines the bears silhuet and overall mood of the photo.

In reply to:

Leandros S: I'm going to boycoot this one as my personal favourites aren't here, and it feels a bit stupid being only allowed to vote for what the DPR team have deigned permissible. Condescending, too.

Pre selected photos ok. I would have liked to have a bit more photos to compete each other. But oh well...

On Will consumer DSLRs be 'dead in 5 years?' post (132 comments in total)
In reply to:

bleeboo: I'm afraid DSLR's, if not extinct, will be far fewer in the future.

Look at what has happened with mp3's as opposed to the full sonic quality of a CD.

People have actually accepted muddy and distorted sounding music as "acceptable" for the sake of transportability.

Just as have many accepted blurred and washed out phone snapshots as passable.

For me, I'll always play the music I love most with as much sonic integrity as I can, meaning top level equipment to do so.

The same goes for photography. I'll always have a DSLR.

I'm afraid, however, I'm going the way of the dinosaur.

"FLAC and SACD are a pointless waste of space"
:P
Until some better than mp3 encoding invades the market and you have buy your mucis again because you don't have any lossless format in your backup to re-encode them to new format. Money well spent mate.
Storage prices are "so" high now days...

In reply to:

BeyondPluto: What a strange creature. And at about the same price, I can't imagine choosing this over the newly released Panasonic GM1 with compact kit zoom.

Mixed bag of toughts here.
Nice compact cam and all in one solution with small sensor. Doesn't stop you from taking good photos. But the price, totally personal point of a view is that II would not buy this camera for the realease price.

In reply to:

Tomee21: But why 15mm? Why not 12? Or at least 14? Those would make more sense to me than a 30mm equivalent.

My bet is that marketing department had decided it would not be cost effective enough.

On Sony introduces large-sensor 'high-zoom' Cyber-shot RX10 news story (114 comments in total)

Stylish camera and sign that manufacturers should start to upgrade their bridge camera sensor sizes or that's how I see the situation.

So it can magically guess the texture patterns that objects have even if it originally was just a blur... I would like to see that happen. I bet it would have some funny end results. :)

And didn't Adobe all ready do this deblurring thingy?

Customer ordered the statues and paid the sculptor. So in my opinion after that sculptor should not get anything.

Monument photographer got paid for the photo so he also has his share of the money.

So rest of this idiocracy circus is just punch of greedy people arguing about money that doesn't belong to them.

On Olympus blends E-M5 and E-5 to create OM-D E-M1 flagship ILC news story (223 comments in total)
In reply to:

dark goob: No fully articulating screen, no headphones jack, no uncompressed HDMI out, no way to set the focus to infinity, no 4-way controller on the vertical grip, no 24P, no high-speed video modes (120FPS, 240FPS), and no touch-to-focus while recording video. Olympus is great at making products that are simultaneously must-haves, yet still, huge let-downs, full of "if only's" that leave loyal users such as myself feeling like citizens of a third-world country where you can only expect minimal things from the society despite it being a beautiful paradise in most regards.

Here's what you can expect if you become an Olympus owner, even of their top-of-the-line products: they will only update the firmware to fix a major bug, but not to add any new features or functionality. If you email Olympus a suggestion for how to improve the firmware of your camera, they won't do it, but you'll see that improvement on the next camera they come out with. Buy a new one. Meanwhile Canon 7D is on firmware 2.x..

yabokkie: "this is only a casual handy walk-around snap camera."
I would choose between GX-7 or some 99$ m43 body only deal for that usage.

On Panasonic GX7 First Impressions Review article (1202 comments in total)

My opinion is that test scene needs one bigger object with decent amount of details. Like Baileys bottle in the old scene.

Well this summarises the situtation in my opinion:
-phones integrated camera quality is only get better (of course)
--phones are always there in your pocket or purse
--There is no hasle with moving pictures to computer first

-Dedicated camera offers better shooting experience and ergonimics for users
-Sensor size is gonne be bigger than phones camera sensor
--(if no manufacturer isn't stupid enough to make ICL phone with large sensor or camera with full smart phone experience. Then were a not talking bout "mobile phone anymore :)
-Net connectivity of cameras have get and will get betters because people has the need to share their every day moments in 'peeping' media.
-And of course cheap small sensor camera market is fading as Sandor said "Smartphones are getting better and your snapshot ability now matches your camera's,'"

Usability wise it looks about what I wanted. Let's wait and see what kind of images it produces and what's the price next year this time :)
