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.
pdelux: Making a 1/5th of your workforce rednundant sounds like a company that is on the RISE!

RPJG: "These are sh1te and I could do better" coming in 1... 2... 3...
Yes... obviously I should have written it the other way around, as "3... 2... 1..."! :-)

SanPedro: If people don't want to pay for PS then stop moaning and use something else.
I've been using GIMP for the past few months. It's still isn't as familiar as PS, and obviously not as accomplished. But hey... It's free and it works, and some aspects are better than PS.
I think the rental model they have is actually fine. Means you always have an up-to-date version, whatever OS you're using.
Right, because the ribbon is so hard to get used to, and so hard to use, and so hard to customise. Not.
And any user of Win 8/8.1 knows that you never need see the new interface if you don't want to.
Some people seem to hate for the sake of hating.
Weia: I left Photoshop since the cloud version is the only one. Bye bye.
Huh? What stops you using whatever version you were using before CC came out? What stops you buying any older version on eBay etc?
D 503: Useless bloat ware.
Mo50: How many stops is ND 500?
In other words 2 to the power of 8.9658 = ~500.
About 8.9658.. let's call it 9 stops :-)
Don't know a lot about this camera - what's the "back button" they refer to a couple of times?
RPJG: I hate to ask a serious (*and* potentially dumb) question, but does anyone know where to find similar side-on/cutaway images of lenses, explaining what part of the cross-sectional area is used for the calculation of the f/ number?
(Especially in the case of fixed f/ number zoom lenses, where the aperture being measured must be increasing as the lens zooms out to its longer focal lengths.)
Thanks princewolf - that sort of makes sense, but I can't see how it explains the case of zoom lenses, where that minimum is changing with each change of focal length?

feilong: Not as sharp as the Canon 24L II but a great value for price. I expect this lens to sell really well. I may consider buying it.
Yes? Maybe we're talking at cross-purposes :-)
I agree with you (I think)! Who cares about the brand, the more choice the merrier, buy whatever best fits your requirements within your budget, enjoy what you have, etc?
(I may have unfairly interpreted feilong's defence of his Canon lens; call me impulsive. Apologies feilong if that's the case.)
Yes, very true :-)
Martin Huisman: Could someone explain to me the reasoning of the executives of Nikon on the increased minimum ISO of 200?
I must be confusing concepts, because in my reasoning an increased minimum ISO from 64 to 200 means that the sensor is actually less sensitive.As this is nearly 2 'stops' I tend to think that that's where the 4x more sensitivity of the sensor comes from...?
Well, one man's obsession is another man's simple enjoyment of his hobby. If he can afford the bike and the fancy clothes, who cares? Even if the lycra and team shirts don't *really* help him go any faster but he enjoys it more that way, does it matter that someone else might think that he looks like a bit of a knob?
Likewise, if someone spends $10K on an awesome astro setup, and loves what he's doing, then more power to them :-)
Each to their own, so long as they;re not hurting anyone else.
Sure, I never said anything about brands, the more the merrier :-)
I think maybe you misunderstand what confirmation bias is? He's paid cold hard cash for his Canon lens so he thinks it's better - even though he's had no chance to properly compare the two. That's all. Whether it's comparing systems, or comparing lenses within systems, is irrelevant.
Anyway, we're arguing over nothing really.
papa natas - god forbid anyone enjoy their hobby, just because they can't be as good as the pros. I guess we should give up all sports and other hobbies as well?
Confirmation bias: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias
Exactly! I was just amused that he's disparaging a lens that he's never used or seen detailed reviews of, saying his Canon lens is better - hence the confirmation bias comment.
