I don't think that battery size (2600mAh) is enough for photographic device that also has android running at the same time. Going to drain it self empty very quickly while shooting and uploading your photos to the social media as the selfie snapshotters tend to do.

Kirppu: I personally don't get this concept. Buy a lens mount, that work by it self no matter that the ergonomics seem to suck. Use your lens mount with your smart phone that acts as you camera rear screen. Still you're far from ergonomic nirvana.
Plus, you still have to buy lenses for your system.

Heck why not just buy the E-mount camera body?
This is one of those things I just don't get it.

Just give your camera to a chimp and retrieve it after couple of day. This way you don't have to bother taking funky photos and videos by your self :)

I'm just wondering how will that complex design (all five groups can move, either together or independently) that has made this lens possible will stand the test of time. Will it last to the end of the warranty period or will it really be enough durable to last more than a year?

So basicly they are making auto generated 3D model of the footage, then process it further and slap original video as a some kind of texture to the 3d model and finally render the end result.... Sound really time consuming. Instead of stabilazing the image they should further enchange the 3D generator so the footage could be explored in real 3D afterwards :) And not just one camera path.

bford: How can people online get access to your full resolution image if you don't post it online? Anyone with an obviously desirable image that posts the full resolution version online is a fool.

I don't see point uploading over ~1,2MP photos (with serious jpg compression) onlline if you want to keep people misusing your work. Just enough resolution to appreciate the photo in web browser. Of course there won't be much of a details left but seriously limiting the possibilities to use the photo to any big size printing without serious prosessing.

My advice is, don't trust so easily what webservices tell you, like "we'll keep your data save don't worry" -> there are punch of people working in their datacenters also. :) If you uploaded the full resolution and someone stole it, bad luck but doesnät surprice me.

On Hands-on with the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 article (102 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dimit: It's success depends on how fast the widest level of aperture deteriorates in conjunction with the increase of focal distance.
Should it be F4 by-let's say-30 mm,wouldn't be a game changer.
Should it be F2.8 up to 200 mm,then YES!

It's around F8 equivalent at 28mm

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 First Impressions Review preview (1282 comments in total)

First thing that comes to my mind is Panasonic exchanges the relative aaperture for the longer zoom range when comparing it to the Sony RX10

Kirppu: So he told people how to use graphical editing software...?
did you know that you can print fake money with colour printer.
ps: it's illegal or in the grey area of legal, but is it illegal to tell people it's possible?

I see that the biggest problem is that these kind of things come easier and easier to do for the average user and it really blinds users for thinking it could be illegal or infringement of some copyright. "but it's so easy my teenager could do it" Same problem lies in the entertainment industry with unauthorized copying of music and movies being so ridiculously easy.

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...

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 (134 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...
