Peter Koudstaal: Of course we wish all the Cubans a lot of fun with their new Iphones or fast internet but i do hope the country will remain - for the sake of authenticity and photogenicy - free of Walmart, MacDonalds and Starbucks for at least a while. But the Cubans will probably ask themselves in about 10 years from now: where did it go wrong?

It did not take in my country 10, only a couple of years after the communist takeover in 1949, that people sitting in the jails or in the camps asked themselves, where did it go wrong.

On article Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 Review (489 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jurka: I just bought G7. Autofocus performance in video mode is the same as GH2. (Very poor and not comparable to Sony A6000).

> Panasonic should be dominating in this area since they are video centric

Well, that might be even a draw-back: not willing to hurt the video camera business.

Once we sere skiing in Slovenia and would-be wifey had wrong shoes with her, maybe borrowed. They did not really fit and hurt (chafed) her skin. So we rented her a pair of ski shoes which did a good job at comforting her sore feet and saving the ski holidays for her.
We were much fond of this brave pair of shoes and I wanted to buy it but is was not possible.

Mike FL: The guy is interesting, and he is not very sure that LX100 is better than 15 yeas old Canon P&S:

"Announced September 18, 2000, the PowerShot G1 sported a 3.3 megapixel CCD sensor...The Canon G series has been through more than a decade of evolution and remains attractive to enthusiasts looking for a compact with lots of manual controls."

"...the Lumix LX100 is undoubtedly a high-priced compact...As for how much we’ll miss those 3.2 million pixels, though, for that we’ll have to wait and see."

Ok, he will tells us what he sees...after he has LX100 to compare to the 15 yeas old P&S.

> LX100 is better than 15 yeas old Canon P&S

Well the Canon G series had several models since the debut with G1 as also mentioned in the article.

joe6pack: Heart warming story. Sometimes, the photos in a camera is worth more than the camera itself.

I had some precious photo that was lost in an xD card (thanks Olympus!). I would certainly willing to pay twice the price of the card to get my photo back.

> I had some precious photo that was lost in an xD card (thanks Olympus!).

Did you try a recovery program? I had good experience with TestDisk/PhotoRec.

On photo Torockó in the Urban Transylvania challenge (3 comments in total)

I was there and know the place so let me comment on this picture (not by me).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rimetea

Rimetea (formerly Trascău; Hungarian: Torockó; German: Eisenmarkt, Eisenburg)

It is a pretty former miners' village. In 1870 a fire destroyed it but it was then rebuilt in a short time, so it has pretty similar white houses (like the ones in the background), a uniform village-scape all around.

The foreground might be from the public well in the main square.

On article Hungarian law bans photos taken without consent (321 comments in total)
In reply to:

Esign: I think that everyone opposed to be photographed has something to hide. Most of the time, it's bad hair day, wrong shirt or forgot to shave. At the same time, nobody seems to care that 1000+ people can watch you in person when you cross the city (and see your shortcomings perfectly).
In Budapest, 90 % of the people on the streets are tourists, anyway.

> In Budapest, 90 % of the people on the streets are tourists, anyway.

Well, there are touristic places where this might even apply, but generally speaking it is of course an exaggeration.

But while you are in Hungary, the Hungarian laws apply to you too. If it is forbidden to take a photo of a person without permission, then it applies also to the tourists as photo subjects too.

Horsefeathers: I have the Panasonic brand to be reliable and have never needed any service of any sort. I have owned two Panasonic and FZ30 and an Fz150 and the FZ 30 is still taking good pictures. It hasn't missed a beat.

> I have the Panasonic brand to be reliable and have never needed any service of any sort.

I have an NV-GX7 video camera since 2002. It once needed service: its still picture taking ability was gone.

In reply to:

sono1mito: mah,affermare che le ultime telecamere rappresentano un" grande passo avanti rispetto a 2 anni fa" mi sembra esagerato,certo qualche dettaglio è stato migliorato ma non tanto.Ognuno di noi penso che anche con una camera "vecchia" scatta ottime foto senza inseguire le ultime novità.
Ciao

> Ja ik denk dat ze ook niet Nederlands verstaan.

Well, on the basis of German it is not impossible to understand some Dutch, so this much can be fairly understood by (the relatively numerous) German speakers too.

Anyway, the remark was a good way to hint that it is not very wise to publish in Italian in an English language international forum.

Akkor miért ne rögtön magyarul - azt az olasznál is kevesebben értik meg ;-)

ZorSy: sad and concerning if their authorities consider this a "solution" for the problem....

Often the facade is kept while the building behind is being completely replaced. With or without billboard.

On Challenge:8683 (11 comments in total)

I was pondering on entering but it says for me
"Challenge is now open for submissions" and
"no entry" and still
"challenge full'.

It is strange even if I see your post on having closed it.

Ronie-AAA: Get out of town... if you don't want to disclose the manufacturer of the card than the whole thing is pointless, the picture is nothing to write home about.

Besides, the card's having survived could have to do with being closed and maybe shielded in the camera body.

In reply to:

ManuelVilardeMacedo: I don't wanna bash Pentax. I really don't. It is a respectable, innovative and honest brand which makes DSLRs I wouldn't refuse to own and would certainly enjoy. But... that pink and gold colour scheme...? I don't know what's worse - Pentax offering it, or thinking someone will actually buy one.

..........

(long pause in order to clean the vomit off the keyboard)

Different cultures appreciate this differently. Colored camera bodies are not forcibly that attractive in Europe or the USA, but they are beloved e.g. in Japan, in the home market.

On photo My window in the What Is This? – II. challenge (10 comments in total)

So the most accurate guess way by JimW-203 apart from the fact it is only one tree - thanks to everyone for guessing:

> Tree/trees as seen through water drops

On photo My window in the What Is This? – II. challenge (10 comments in total)

Yes, it is the reflection/refraction of the big gleditsia tree seen from my window, this time though water droplets. It is the same tree seen in the different droplets.
