Nothing says "Success" like dropping the price so low. The problem is that I am reminded of Admiral Ackbar's famous line when it comes to getting invested in an open ended subscription with a program that uses proprietary image files.

This has been a huge hole in Canon's lineup. I am glad Sigma stepped up to patch it.

On First Impressions Review: Using the Canon PowerShot G16 article (351 comments in total)

I thought the G1X was the worthy successor to the G-series cameras. Coming out with the G16 when the G1X and the Sony RX100 are already out seems odd.

The problem with the 1 system is that there are better, cheaper, smaller cameras like the micro 4/3 cameras and the NEXs. A 1" sensor can be very good, like in the Sony RX100, but the 1 system cameras are not pocketable.

On Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM Preview preview (352 comments in total)

Do the people at DPreview understand the concept of the f-stop? An f1.8 lens gives the same exposure no matter how large the light circle. When I shoot medium format the exposure is not affected by the final crop I use of the image. An f-stop of f1.8 means f1.8. The f stop does not go down if you use a smaller sensor or crop the image.

dennishancock: Excuse me but this is the latest example of The Emperor Has No Clothes. That Eggleston tricycle photo is worth no more than twenty-five cents.

This is the art world where art is an investment. The actual quality of the art is secondary to the story and the fame of the artist. 10,000 better photos are uploaded to Flickr every day, but not by people with publicists.

On CP+ 2013: Interview with Canon's Masaya Maeda article (490 comments in total)

How many Rebels sell per 5dMkiii? APS-C is very popular and isn't going away any time soon. I think the 7D was taking sales from the more expensive full frame cameras, which is why they are shying away from a 7DMkii. That and they keep using the same 18MP APS-C sensor for the past several years.

On Just Posted: Canon PowerShot G15 review article (340 comments in total)

Given the RX100 and the G1X, why does this camera exist? The RX100 has pocketable with great IQ nailed perfectly. The G1X is larger with an articulating screen. The G15 is large with a small sensor and no articulating screen. Also, giving the G15 a gold and the RX100 a silver looks very much like favoritism.

My RX100 handles just fine. I really like the bounce flash on such a small camera.

I suspect that they are correct in calling this their "Ultimate" luxury camera, as I don't see them making any more any time soon.

Sorry, the RX-100 is simply better. The s series needs a larger sensor and brighter glass. Sony managed both.
