Karroly: What a crazy world. It seems some people are just less intelligent than monkeys...

You can bet on that!

PETA and Wikipedia are behaving like idiots - and so are the judges. The photographer is right, it is his equipment that was used by an animal, and as far as I know, animals are not included in human's copyright laws. I hope that the photographer will win this case, and that all his legal expenses will be paid by PETA and Wikipedia.

The box looks like something from the 1960´s.

Why did the customer return it to the shop? Warranty repair is unlikely.... Maybe special materials recycling?

On article You should totally spend 15K on this rare Zeiss lens (7 comments in total)

I could probably give USD 15.00 for it, but not more. Value is an individual perception, and I can really not see any real value for this old lens, even if it is a rarity.

You will always "lose money" when switching over to a completely new system, no matter if it is to Sony, to Canon, to Nikon or any other system. It always depends on how much equipment you have, how old it is, and what is the minimum you need to get in a new system.

On article Sony a9: Why being better might not be enough (766 comments in total)

Sony is not necessarily aiming its new line of pro equipment towards established photographers. Old photographers will disappear with time, and a new generation will take over. There are many new photographers out there who want to build a system from scratch, and many of them might start with Sony as it is making its products attractive. About a 300/400 mm f2.8 prime, I have no doubt that it is on the way.

String: I just have to laugh... another new camera and once again Steve Huff proclaims it "the best camera ever made!" Is there anyone that takes that guy seriously?

My guess is that you are the one that is not taking it seriously - and you should, if you are a serious photographer.

The specs are amazing! This seems to be a winner. Sony is really setting the new standard in camera technology that other competitors will have to follow. I also believe that mirrorless is the way to go. Less mechanical parts, less problems.

Richard Poinvil: After I dicovered the British Photo mags, I never looked at pop photo. What really got under my skin is when they had a shootout and their final opinion was, "you decide".

I agree with you. Back in the 80's and 90's, I used to subscribe to a couple of British magazines. They were very instructive with a variety of features. Unfortunately, the American magazines were filled with advertisements. In fact, half of an American magazine would only contain advertisements, not to mention some 4-5 postal reply cards falling out of it.

Maybe it could be rebuilt to its exact looks, based on the millions of existing photos taken from every possible angle?☺

On article Study: people don't actually like looking at selfies (200 comments in total)

Just by looking at many selfies in the web, I think that they should be called "selfish". Unfortunately, we live now in a world where people have to show how successful they are, or at least pretend that they are. We have now a society of "I this" and "I that" (it sounds maybe also familiar with a certain brand name).

At first, I thought that this would be another sensational test. To be honest, this was quite useful. This test shows how LCD displays, electronics and small mechanisms can survive extremely cold temperatures - although, without the camera being able to function during the exposure. It is good to know that you can take your GoPro to *very* low temperatures anywhere in the world without it getting permanently damaged.

Ricoh was certainly ahead of its time...

yahoo2u: An alright camera, then add in the price and it becomes a nah camera. A second tier apsc system from canon or nikon would be a better choice...eg: D7200.

If photo and video quality in a small body is important to you, then the a6500 beats out the s of most APS-C cameras out there. No wonder that the a6300, and now the a6500, are also being used by pro´s.

bleeboo: Got one, with the 18-105 power zoom, and it is a very good camera.

The only thing I find disappointing about it, is the IBIS in video mode.

Not too good, compared to the Olympus e-M1 MkII.

I suppose there's never going to be the perfect camera, but both the Oly and the Sony are small enough to carry in one bag, so I'll use the Sony for 100mps 120fps slow motion and stills, and the Oly for run and gun 4K video and the occasional still.

One day, there will be an amalgam of the two cameras into a near perfect set up.

It is great too see that there is a new option for non-subscription software for Windows that does not cost an arm and a leg. I will definitely try this one out.

Sometimes, it seems like objects do have a soul... :)
