UHS-II cards have barely entered the market and now they are bringing out UHS-III.
It would be nice if the SD Association was better organized.

Duckie: Oh what a blow to my confidence! Just starting to think of switching to lighter gear and now this?

MFT (Panasonic and Olympus) is the way to go.

Wow, that's a surprise. Does NOT bode well for Nikon.

mosc: I see a lot of people taking selfies. I don't see people looking at their own selfies let alone others. The act of taking the picture is fun and there is some instantaneous review of "yes, there it is. I have completed the task of talking a picture of myself with this landmark/person/sign/breakfast food/whatever" but then it gets filed away never to be looked at again. Even significant places or things people want to shoot become less palatable for sharing because they put themselves in the shot.

I also think there's some actual challenge to a selfie. The camera's are terrible (front facing ones are improving to adequate but rear facing cameras are still atrocious) and seeing the screen during the shot along with yourself AND whatever background scene/object is quite physically tricky. People like the framing challenge but once the puzzle is solved and the shot taken, the picture itself is worthless.

Here in Asia, many selfies end up as the wallpaper on that person's phone, or the photo ID for Line/WhatsApp etc.

Autriche78: Well, I for one am happy that we can take selfies when we want them. I promise you, I can take better portraits of myself and my loved ones ( for OUR memories; we don't have social media accounts ) than people whom I've handed my camera to, who hold it with arms outstretched like it was toxic, then mash the shutter with sufficient force to defeat even the most robust IS feature - and I consider myself lucky if I appear without my head or feet amputated and with family members and/or landmarks AWOL.

LOL

On article Throwback Thursday: Minolta's prosumer DiMAGE 7 (177 comments in total)

My first 'real' digital camera. It was a good camera, but not great. Slow operation was its major failing, along with so-so AF. IQ was very good, when the AF hit the mark.

My D7 failed when the manual zoom failed. It was very cheaply constricted, with 2 small plastic levers, which eventually broke. I sent it to Minolta for repair, and (to their credit) they replaced it with a 7i. I still have the 7i.

Battery life was also an issue.

If they pull this off (people just shut up and continue paying), then US customers are next

For sure.

On article Apple selling more Plus models than ever (63 comments in total)

I find it funny that the only reason Apple made the larger phones and tablets, was because Samsung was kicking their butts.

Phones, indeed, all devices, with non removable batteries should be outlawed.

In certain parts of the world, that has a completely different meaning.

HowaboutRAW: Corsair? (Never heard of them until tonight, and until I searched Amazon USA, thought this must be European.)

It's not a widely known brand, and that matters for flash drive storage. Generally if the brand isn't widely known that means it has some weakness.

But it is interesting to learn that Corsair has offered faster USB drives for some time now.

Corsair are a very well known computer memory manufacturer.
