Le Kilt: Sony : How come no intervalometer ???

Exactly. That's a deal breaker for me. It's hard to imagine how they can overlook that. Is there any Sony camera that has that built-in?

Triplet Perar: The m4/3 offers excellent image quality, and sufficient magnification for most enthusiast and professional uses. In fact, in good light, even the smartphone camera suffices for modest magnifications, and you all know that. In the market of dedicated camera systems, though, formats like the FF and APS-C have become a waste of space and weight, and come with under-utilisation of lens design and cost involved in producing them (because of the outdated 3:2 format). We may compare formats to cars – the FF is the V8 petrol guzzler, APS-C is the V6 petrol guzzler, and m4/3 is the 4-cylinder turbo-charged smaller, silent, comfy car. They all accelerate well, but when used in everyday situations, that is, on city and rural roads with speed limits, buying V8 and V6 guzzlers is a waste of money, parking space, petrol & ongoing maintenance. Medium Formats corresponds to buying a truck, or a bulldozer.

@Triplet........my first response was going to be....WTH? But I thought better of it and made up my mind to respond in a more grown up way. Problem is, I don't know what to say.

AustinMN: For those who may not like this, $75,000 is probably only going to cover the medical and lost wages expenses not covered by insurance.

If this was a for-profit lawsuit, it would be for ten to fifteen times that amount.

Yes it is. Immigration is killing the country.

virtualreality: US people are sickening. If you don't want a gun pointed at you, why don't you start by banning fire-arms?

@virtualreality........your name is perfect. But I think 'clueless' would be better.

I'm not going to comment on the product itself, that subject seems to be handled just fine. My problem is this whole kickstarter situation. It's proof that the inventor of this idea has no confidence in it's market worthiness. I don't see it going anywhere.

MarcV: LX100 is the best compact camera I have ever used!

I also have the LX100. It's a very good camera. However, when I know that I'm going to need flash frequently I pick up my RX100m4. The slip on flash on the LX100 works great, it's powered by the camera battery, and it's cheap.......but....the profile of the package when it's attached does not lend itself to pocketability. If the LX100 had a built in flash, I wouldn't own the Sony.

Poweruser: Totally irrelevant outside of the US

I'd agree that it would be largely irrelevant. Totally? Probably not.

On article GoPro updates with Hero3+ (34 comments in total)

SuperView, the most immersive wide angle? What does that mean? Can we have a number? I scoured the GoPro site looking for that information, I could not find it. It seems strange that there is not a specification listed for this claim. I know that the widest angle available up to this point has been 170 degrees. It must not be significant if they are not listing the spec.

Minolta4Life: Take a review for what it's worth. Most of my reviews are not from using the product, but reviewing the specs, and/or appearance of an item if I'm dumbfounded by its looks (like that ugly Hasselblad makeover of the Sony Nex). I think most people fall in this category, being most of us don't have the means to test each camera that is pushed to market. I feel i am pretty camera savy. I shot Nikon, Canon, Minolta, Pentax, Olympus, Sony and Sigma over the years. I can pretty well determine the rain from the pee on my leg. Stop peeing on my leg, and I will give you rave reviews, i.e. Sony RX100II (all i ever want was a hotshoe), and Olympus OM-D (that would be my pretty wife that was also a freak in the bed). Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sigma, stop giving us new nomenclature with meaningless upgrades.

Well put Mr. Stone! I thought that Minolta4Life might be goofing on us. If so, then it's funny. If not, well....it's still funny!

You say that you review products without using them, by just looking at the specs and appearance?
