On article 5 Reasons why I haven't used my DSLR for months (594 comments in total)

Yup and people cry bull when I make the same argument. I use my smartphone for photos most of the time. I get called all kinds of names but convenience wins. I'm not prepared to lug around a DSLR and lenses when I can take a pretty good photo with my phone!

There seem to be a lot of Android apps to do this.

It sounds good but won't correct glare on the lens like a filter will

Smaller, lighter, cheaper, better. If they'd put their muscle into a better all in one then there would be no need to change lenses ever again.

Pantyhose Bandit: 51 megapixels. 8256 x 6192 pixels. It's $8.5K and the 36mp Nikon D800 is 3K. Is the extra $5.5K really justified by the extra 15 megapixels?

How big is big enough? A magazine centerfold is about 11 inches by 28 inches. Given that magazines do not print at a very high resolution, theres's plenty wasted pixelage on the D800. On the 645 even more pixels are wasted and the image is the wrong dimension because the 645 is 4:3. A centerfold is 11:28 which is closer to 3:2.

Billboards have the lowest resolution of all. Newspapers have pretty low resolution too due to the paper they're printed on.

This looks to me more like Ricoh trying desperately to bring out something expensive to make them more money without actually benefiting the consumer too much.

Agreed. At 11x9 there's not much to choose between well exposed an processed images from any format including cellphones.

But can the LCD swivel so that it can be viewed from the front?

Jogger: "Growing from humble roots, GoPro brought in close to $1B in revenue in 2013 and $60M in profit, making it appear to be a safe bet for investors."

lmao.. how is this a safe bet? their operating costs are humungous, your money is basically going to be burned as commission to IPO firms/lawyers, CEO pockets/pension, debt payments, and paying for crasy operating expenses.

The market for action pov cameras is pretty much saturated/matured... there is little to no growth.

Even so - people will buy the shares and sell them off within six months and make a ton of money.

I can't wait to see the Chinese getting in on the act with better, stronger, cheaper cameras that make sushi while filming.

It needs a much longer range in terms of battery time. It's just a toy as it is.

On article Leica T (Typ 701) First Impressions Review (2247 comments in total)

That is seriously cheap in comparison to Leica's other offerings. The camera is comparable in price to most of the mirrorless stuff. The lenses are more but they look to be a load better. As for image stabilisation - I used to like it. Now it's just so ho-hum. I can live with or without it but on balance I prefer to live without it.

Oh... The Guardina - the company that can't even spell its own name right. What a bastion of journalistic integrity. I wouldn't trust anything the guardian scrawled on its pages.

On article Am I missing something here? (627 comments in total)

The 1 series is interesting. The prices just knock it out of the ballpark though. I can get a darned good SLR system for what it costs. I can just buy a smart phone if all I want is quick, easy photos. It seems to be trying to create a market where there is none.
