Papi61: "Unlimited Everything Plan (free 3-month trial, then $59.99 per year—equivalent of less than $5 per month): Store an infinite number of new and existing photos, videos, files, documents, movies, and music in Cloud Drive."

How's this supposed to be a good deal? For $69/year Microsoft gives you unlimited OneDrive storage PLUS Office 365.

Papi's fvcked-up universe:

1. Papi accuses Person A (me) of something that apparently he does (e.g. creating a user profile 4 years ago so that I could secretly defend "myself")

2. If Person A says nothing, then Papi believes that what he said must be true

3. If Person A says that's obviously not true, because it isn't, then Papi says that it must be doubly true!

So, logically, anything Papi says must be true, regardless of how ridiculous it is.

Apart from seeking medical help for your unusual psychological condition, I suggest you attend training on critical thinking and logical reasoning.

I'm out now; you don't possess the intellectual skills to conduct a sensible conversation.

Mate, a cursory glance of our profiles will show how ridiculous your comments are. It goes without saying that I didn't like his post.

I suggest you seek medical help.

You can't seriously believe I am the same person as ThePhilips.

Grow up, admit you were unnecessarily rude, and act more politely and civilly in future.

Yes, I'm an alias :rolleyes:

And yes, you're being a dick. It's pretty easy to look at Microsoft's abysmal page designs, and not realise that there's a *new* feature that now gives unlimited storage for 365 subscribers.

You could have *politely* pointed this out to him, rather than going full-arrogance mode. Being an arsehole is common on anonymous internet forums, but it doesn't have to be.

In reply to:

brn: I'm highly suspicious. If they only support a very limited number camera for RAW files, what are they doing with my files?

I'm not sure what you mean - how does the list of file types they allow relate in any way to conspiracy theories about "what they do with my files"?

It's not like Amazon can't afford to buy some RAW conversion software that'll handle any RAW format.

Richard Franiec: This could be one of the back up option to consider.
What is the advantage of using the Amazon storage over, for example, Carbonite?

If only DPR comments had an ignore function.

ewelch: So, I can store my 10 TB of photos in this? I'll retire before I can upload them all!

Photos don't have to be "good" to be "important".

Papi61, why do you have to be such a dick about it?

On B-grip launches Uno holster for compact system cameras article (107 comments in total)
In reply to:

Aur: just a matter of time with these sytems before you drop your camera

it just takes one time to think your camera is locked into the holster when it's not, you release your camera with your hand and it falls, lens first, on the concrete below it

also, if you use that on busy streets, some people can seriously hurt themselves on your camera, the hot shoe is extremely sharp, if someone runs against your camera, they could hurt themselves really badly on the hot shoe metal

Millions will die!

Sheesh.

Thomas Traub: if you are realy travelling or hiking, this size of a backpack is a joke ...
For a trip of one or two days I need at least my 40-l-backpack ...

But this could be good enough to make a short trip of two or three ours with small equipment and carry a raincoat and a second shirt for me, something to eat and a small city-guide..

... yes ... this would work .....

I love lowepro, I have 4 bags of them and iI love lowealpine, I've two backpacks (40 and 55+10 L) but I don't understand the philosophy of this kind of backpack .... for one cam and two lenses and one pullover and a sandwich .....

Huh? Where do they say it's designed to replace a hiking backpack?

RPJG: Way to go, (some) DPR commentators!

Here's a report on a fantastic new technology that holds amazing promise for our hobby/profession. Yet within the first dozen comments we've got :

1. fretting that it isn't good enough,

2. the beginnings of a ludditical OVF/EVF thread, and

3. the beginnings of an Apple-makes-me-jizz-my-pants thread.

Incredible.

Maybe we will be replacing our lenses with these things one day. Obviously we don't know yet, and this is just the beginning. But if DPR commentators had looked at the Wright Flyer, they'd have scrapped the idea as idiotic and we wouldn't have air travel today.

That's my point, not whether this *will* actually work as well as "normal" lenses one day.

Lexxie: the same as an old principle: the Fresnel Lens.

The principles and results are *entirely* different.

In reply to:

justmeMN: AF is for wimps. :-) My Pentax film camera didn't have no newfangled AF, and it worked just fine. :-)

Well to be fair, comparing manual focus to someone who doesn't know how to use his camera properly, isn't much of a comparison.

Anyone? Bueller?

The video stream comes into the device via the HDMI port, and the device them compresses it.. but what does it do with the stream?

It sounds like the stream becomes available on their website. So how does it get from the device their website - it connects to their website via an inbuilt 3G/4G connection?

And the wifi referred to is just to connect to your phone/tablet to control the device?

In reply to:

zsedcft: They had a working prototype. They decided to change the whole internal design after the funding period was over.

Haje has been working his way round the internet outlets claiming that he is doing this good of the current customers. What he fails to mention is that triggertrap mobile already have a working product and an app. They don't really need much support, they will be fine on their own.

The kickstarter backers have no product. Haje remains the CEO of a company that has ripped off 2000 loyal backers (a lot of whom have supported them from the start).

There are other, similar projects that raised less money that have succeeded. They wasted the money thinking that there was a bottomless pit. They announced today that it was going to cost 62% of the total they raised to even produce the product - 3x what they budget for (which they didn't notice until 13 months after the project funded). It is incompetence and mismanagement in the extreme.

Tony, it's simply not practical for Kickstarter to "ensure that projects are sanely managed", and no-one expects it to.
