On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (2274 comments in total)

If you don't like it don't buy it! If you like photography first have something interesting to photograph, use the best (interesting) lens you can get, know how to post-process using RAW. Then you can buy a $200 used Rebel or $3000 5D, it won't make a massive different.

On Sony Alpha A7 / A7R preview (2372 comments in total)

Good luck to Sony. I stopped buying Sony products more then a decade ago.
As a post below me mentioned, Sony changes directions way to often and I won't buy into a system that is constantly changing.
I am happy with the Canon 6D full-frame. It's small and light and follows Canon's ergonomic and UI design.

If it's OK to show war crimes on a daily basis then what's the problem? Kids today are more exposed to horror on daily news and social media so who cares about a horror photo on front page of a local newspaper.

Impressive hi ISO!
All the rest is in the photographer's hands and knowledge.

I don't understad what's the title of the infographic has to do with the infographic info? One of the main golas of modern technology is to be able to produce and distribute professional/ Industrial products to the masses.
You can ask "are computers dead?" or "are cars dead"? and so on...

Photography is certainly not dead it's simply one of the easiest forms of output from computers and electronics. Same goes to sound distribution and production (music, radio etc).
Next will be things that we can feel such as 3D printers and holographic imagery.

mmcfine: Honestly, I find most cameras this days produce more or less the same image quality. The glass makes the art not the chip or sensor.
It's amazing how much money and time we spend on comparing nonsense.

I have been using film camera and a 6x6 Rollei and in recent now using a 7D after using a 40D. I worked with a FF (mark II) and found that yes, you may have some low light advantages but to to say FF is the "real" thing is nonsense. I use my 7D for commercial work and can't find any reason to go FF.
Nonetheless I am sure APS-C will become redundant in the near future or will be fitted mostly into P&P.

Oery: I use camera to take picture

and
I use phone to..... take a phone call
:)

That's not what 99% of the planet think. phones are replacing P&P, just check the stats. Image quality for the average family/ user is plenty. Change the word 'phone' to something else "mini pc" or "handheld pc" and switch the way you think. The phone, the thing in your hand can ALSO make phone calls.

As a subscriber and a very long time Adobe customer I think Adobe are trying to find solutions for there shareholders. PS is long gone from it's core intension and as for other Adobe products, the competition is strong.

Saying that, the subscription is still probably the best option for freelancer who do not want or need a full priced software and can easily stop and resume the subscription.

On Hasselblad responds to Lunar criticisms article (628 comments in total)

Why do Hasselblad need to apologise for there decisions? People and press are all jumping as if they are going to get a free product and don't like it. Wait until it's out. Most of you readers never owned a Hasselblad and never will. So take your comments elsewhere.
I admire bold companies that innovate and take the 'left' side for a change.

Sony sells components to everyone so what's all the hype.

Bigbokeh: Look - once upon a time you could whip out a Hassey and people knew you were serious - now we have this thing that looks like Frankenstein meets Godzilla and we marry a once proud name to JUNK. I don't care for sony cameras at all - None of them are appealing - amusing not appealing. Victor can you pull your head out of your A$$ and give us a system that we can use our legacy glass with FOR THE LOVE OF GOD MAN! Folks are giving away insanely fantastic glass and moving away from systems that cost 30K just to join the club. I think all of the manufacturers can go to hell for creating this arms race - I remember the Nikon F4 - It was revolutionary but took years to iron out but MAN when you held it in your hands - Magic - So was the 503CX and the Pentax 645. Now we sit here bludgeoning each other to death over CanonSonyNikon's 1 more pixel race. We see bright spots FUJI but mostly imagination SUCKS - Give me something to revive my Rollei and use its optics that isn't 9K and I'm out

yes you right but also wrong. I also remember many things back in the analog days, these are modern times and if you want to shoot film and run around with a Rollei be my guest.
Hi-tech and micro-tech are the second industrial revolution and I am sure 100 years ago people bitched about those things on four wheels that looked like Godzilla.
Cheers

On Just Posted: Hands-on Nikon D600 preview article (376 comments in total)

I think they should change the Photokina title to PhotoKidding...

Com'on... instead of focusing on the results we focusing on widgets. A camera is a camera is a camera. It's almost like the old wild west, the guy with the biggest gun wasn't necessary the best shooter...

I say, improve the glass and make it more affordable instead of adding idiotic features that most people will never use or know they exist.

But, ye, way to go Nikon. FF camera when the world is shrinking.

In reply to:

Amelio Rate: Seems like a great camera except for 1 thing: USB 2. I already wait forever for my D7000 photos & videos to transfer and the 600 takes even larger files. Why in the world wouldn't Nikon go with USB 3 which has been a standard for nearly 2 yrs already (and which probably only saves them pennies per unit)!?

Card reader mate. USB 3 or Firewire.

On Canon EOS M Preview preview (552 comments in total)
In reply to:

eliaspt: I really don't understand, Canon comes really late to the party and don't add anything at all to what we already had in the market a few years ago (original Nex-5 for ex). I was really expecting something new/different and I don't see any reason for someone who already owns a mirrorless cam to move to this one.

what don't you understand? Canon has such a huge user marker with millions of EF and EF-S lenses that they only needed to create a small APS-C with an EF adapter and call it mirrorless. Canon does not need to follow the mirrorless evolution, they just needed to show that they can.

I am greatly thankful for Canon on providing an update rather then coming up with a markII version. It just shows how the 7D was already ahead of it's time.
