rubank: Alternative facts?

Alternative facts are quite possible. If 20 people look at only a small part of a picture they all report a different color, yet they are all correct. That's why seeing the entire picture is so important, both in art and politics.

maxnimo: Best news I ever heard! Now all I need is a 1 Megapixel camera and get beautiful 100 Megapixel images out of it!

Just imagine, with as little as 100 pixels your could easily have an ISO of 1 billion.

I can't see the video at all. Don't know what sort of crazy stupid video app they're using now. I have no trouble seeing videos on hundreds of other sites.

Is this a joke?

I can just imagine someone launching one of these things in a club, and a software glitch occurs. The next morning police find 800 bodies with their heads sliced open.

I really wanted to hear the natural sound of the event, but all I got was blasting music instead.

LackingCommonSensor: This is almost the perfect camera for me. I am thinking of selling off my DSLR and getting one. I know I could save $$ waiting for them to go on sale, but I could be dead by that time.

From my experience a standard portrait looks best from 50mm to 100mm. If you go higher the faces start to look flatter; if you go lower they start to look unnatural and eventually become comical.
Now if you're doing a group portrait you might be able to barely squeeze by with 35mm without looking too unnatural.

The ultimate bag would be one that's bigger on the inside, so you could cram 500 cubic meters into a wallet size pouch. It can be done with quantum sub-space compression.

So you don't ever again expect to take portraits, or photos of more distant subjects?

Noah Placebo: And maybe they should change their logo and their name if they want to be taken seriously.

Photomart?
Pictureshop?
Imagefactory?
SIEFORG (Serious Image Editor For Grownups)?

On article Feisty upstart: Hands-on with the Fujifilm X-T20 (341 comments in total)

Looks to me like the touch-focus is one huge advantage over the X-T2. I hope they come out with the X-T2s before it's too late.

photophile: Sorry, but these "moon shots" don't work for me. All I see is what appears to be the moon, obscured by buildings or monuments. Why ? If you want to see moon shots, browse the various DPR forums - lots of very good examples.

What if photophile is right? Perhaps that's not the Moon but a simple cake of cheese?

What's funny, silly and corny as hell?

500,000 photos by 500,000 different photographers of the exact same scene.

Too small for a tablet and too big for a pocket = no buy for me.

maxnimo: Out of curiosity I'd love to see an honest side by side comparison of a good Kodachrome scan to a 24 Mp DSLR image.

That's odd because I always disliked grain in my pics. Even back in the old days any grain was too much grain. But the low-ASA Kodachrome did give me the sharpest, smoothest, best looking photos.

Terry Breedlove: How do they afford to travel like that. Airline tickets, rental cars, Hotels, food everything cost.

So one debit card and one credit card could keep you going forever. Might be an interesting way to retire.

For about a tenth the price I would just get an LED flashlight that uses rechargeable batteries and throws 2000 lumens of steady neutral white light.

Some sort of international credit card linked to a fat bank account would probably do the trick. But getting local cash might be tricky.
