Toni Salmonelli: Who cares about the video. Did you see those desserts?! :-)

Oh that was food? Crikey, I thought she was creating pieces of art!! Seriously though, that was very impressive stuff.

eric333: Cumbersome for selfies.

$63k for the camera, $10k for the selfie stick and another $15k for the special-purpose bionic arm to hold that selfie stick. Not a problem! Still, I'd buy that camera if I hand grossly obscene amount of spare change.

I bet Matt is glad he changed his channel name, especially now ...

Yep, I knew you would have to reply ... and endlessly try to push your point across. Awaiting your next (painfully useless) reply.

You're obviously the type of person who just has to have the last word.

geekyrocketguy: My telegrams don't spy on me!

Might be a good idea, go back to pencils and paper .... a little inconvenient though :(

There is no learning here it is just another blown out sky and that insisting that it is good and pretending that there is something to learn when there isn't ... is sad to behold. It's just another Instagram shot, end of story.

It doesn't matter if I've been in fog or not, it's all white and as far as I'm concerned, it looks horrible - like so many other snapshots and selfies that are filled with white (or blown out) skies we see on Instagram daily.

I agree. Nothing worse than white skies.

coloR blinD: .

..." SDM " horror tales continue ???

No guarantee this SDM tech will not fail like countless Pentax lenses have been suffering from more than a decade ...

I wish Pentax would have come up with a firm ssurance to their potential customers about this ...

I had my 50-135mm fail a few years ago when I shot Pentax too. People always talk about Japanese quality, but when things like this occur that is conveniently forgotten. It makes me laugh.

Aroart: I've been a photo geek enthusiast for about 7 yrs and this was the exact type of camera that I was looking for back then.. Finally a decent zoom with great focus ability... just 2 more things would make it a dream camera , built in nd and a swivel screen.. I had the m3 and the lense was so sharp it even beat out my canon 7dm2 with the coveted 70-200 2.8....

I owned the first RX 10 and I'm pretty sure that one had a built-in ND filter.

On article 6 things we want to see in the Google Pixel 2 (79 comments in total)

I've finally given up on these things. Get a good phone, them something better comes out ---> repeat, repeat. I spend more time thinking about them than thinking about how to take a better picture at times. From now I'm just going to keep what I've got and try to take better pictures than just better image quality pictures.

Does anyone know the asking price??

I doubt that camera would be worth much ...

Drooling over.

There are lots of people out there drooling over it with you ... and I'm one of them :/

I can imagine turning up to a place to take a picture at a particular spot because I saw it on the internet and want to take one of my own, only to say, "Ugh, there is an ugly chain fence here!!". This tech will be a bit of both good and bad, depending on who you are I guess.

sirhawkeye64: This has me thinking about starting to document life in general, with a camera. Not everything like those crazies on FB or Twitter, where they are posting 10 pics every day of their daily lives, but documenting photographically events, places, people, etc. Who knows, perhaps decades later, your photos might be the ones (like these) that people look back on and appreciate for capturing what may have been a minor moment in history, but later is realized to be a real turning point in history.

I agree. In a few years people are going to tire of all the supposedly "candid" shots on today's social and crave real shot of what daily life looked like in the early 21st century.

ozgoldman: Well to be honest, those colours do not resemble anything remotely Australian. Give it some green and gold, or some red ochre, and you might start to hit the spot.
Nothing there to turn my head, and I'm true blue Aus.

I'm with you. Even though I'm from the Sunshine Coast in QLD, when I think of Australia I usually think of the desert/outback areas more than the sea. Some red ochre of even some browns would have been much more appropriate. The current design says nothing to me about home.
