cosinaphile: my daughter who thinks my dislike of apple verges on insanity [ who am I to argue ?] has asked me for a certain birthday present.....

she wants the iphone6s plus in silver[ or rose gold ] 2nd choice ] 128gb.... she currently has the 6s ... when i asked "what about the 8 she said no there's no headphone jack ... "even though i use beats" i said you still want that jack huh?
she said "yeah " smiling ... I asked if she wanted the x she said "no "... di you know they took away the home button? " she said ....i said i did ... She added even though it can charge with a charge pad .... but that makes it like android [ a big no- no for her ] and made "a face"

so she will be getting a nice Verizon ready 6s plus 128gb in silver [or rose gold]

so as much as I despise apple... they are getting 649 of my hard earned bucks plus tax from me shortly

sigh!

No way I'd be supporting such brand obsession with my daughter.

Lan: Golden Post!

"The Golden Post inserts into the Magic Slot we showed you above. As we just pointed out, the Magic Slot moves forward and backward ..."

Don't tell me there was no pun intended here.

Dr_Jon: Presumably it just fits right on an A99II and you have a 42MP digital system ready to go? Well once they've put it back together anyway...

It doesn't fit on an A99II or any A-mount camera. Adapers do exist, but they need a corrective lens inside, so nobody really wants them. Aapting to E-mount is easier.

erichK: The simple reality is that the dslr,especially the flippy mirror DSLR has already been left gathering dust in a closet by most of those who take pictures.because of its weight, bulk and (especially) complexity,

The mirror in the DSLR is what the combustion engine is in my analogy.

Electric cars are outsold by cars with a combustion engine by a factor of 10000:1.
Yet everyone knows that the latter have no future.

AngularJS: Apparently some mirrorless fanboys, especially those recently "jumped ship" are not happy with the title. DRP needs to be more PC! The title should say "The Nikon D850 could be the only DSLR you’ll ever need besides <chose your mirrorless brand> camera".

Jokes aside - yes, that's the right statement. Well done Nikon.

The title is fine. From falsehood anything follows.
In other words: it's irrelevant which DSLR you need, when it's questionable if you need a DSLR at all.

Great idea! Then models will have to be thinner right away already.

On article Throwback Thursday: the Canon PowerShot G1 (157 comments in total)

This looks like a nice addition to Canon's line-up of compact cameras. Sure, it may seem a bit old-fasioned but that is just the style they choose. Looking forward to seeing it my local camera store as soon as it gets released.

In reply to:

Richard Schumer: Just because this makes no sense to me doesn't mean it makes no sense to someone else, but I have basic questions which have no answers. In no particular order:

Why "copy" a Leica SL? This is a pro product, not one with wide appeal, and with few novice-friendly features.

What's in it for Leica? Are they about to change their business model and become more like Porsche Design? How much will their involvement raise the price of this product?

Will the New Zenit lenses be autofocus? If not, they will be behind the rest of the world. If they are, will they work on the Leica SL?

Who owns Zenit? Is there a source of skilled labor or will they use specially-trained locals like companies do in Vietnam and in Thailand? If the latter, is Russian labor as cheap? or as good?

This just doesn't sound do-able to me. Will someone enlighten me pls.

Right, they are a second world country.

Sounds like the Hasselblad Lunar and Stellar approach, that were basically Sony cameras with a Hasselblad logo.

If Nikon will go mirrorless it must be full frame.

Ex falso quodlibet sequitur.

He should have said that Nikon is working on a full frame mirrorless system.

Badbatz: Yeah, a list of natively supported OS would be cool.
Considering that Win 10 64 bit pro and enterprise support "only" 512 GB RAM, the HP product must be aimed at the new Windows 10 for workstations Microsoft is about to release, with 2TB/6TB RAM support and many other goodies.

This computer is designed to accept 24 128GB modules. That gives you 3TB.

By the way, one HP 128GB DIMM seems to be priced at $6000 - no typo.

Save for a few hipsters, this won't catch the attention of many. It's 2017, not 1987.

3TB of RAM will cost about $70.000. Sounds nice on paper, though.
