yeah, the trouble with Drobo's, and I've had three now, is that while they generally work, when they go bad they go very, very bad. I understand that they can't provide a lot of support for $500, but when you need it it's expensive. The times I have had problems I have reformatted the drive. Which means I never trust them with actual data, only with backups.

This is great and I'm so happy about #12!

Once he said that vinyl sounds worse than mp3's I had to stop reading. Lost all credibility.

Denton Taylor: The Pentax MX was just a great little camera. Built to compete with Olympus OM and in many ways superior, as in electronic meter vs. mechanical needle. I still have a pair of them. The LX was a brilliant camera too that I couldn't afford at the time but which I bought later post-digital, just because.

Not at all, it was an attempt to build a full fledged compact but professional camera to compete with Nikon and Canon. Had some interesting and unique features...

BrianOC: Great camera... but waaaay to expensive

Half the price of a Mk iv is expensive?

Denton Taylor: Yeah this is rather annoying. A lot of people are claiming that the XT-2 is a 'pro' camera since they upgraded the autofocus etc. Fuji doesn't discourage this talk. Then they charge $80 for the simple ability to shoot tethered? I think I'll just stick to my Canons for that. Free, and works.

One criterion is the ability to hook it up too studio lighting and shoot into a computer.

A Diana when I was ten. Cost $3.50 in the local drug store. That would have been 1965 or so.

Denton Taylor: As a 600-EX-RT user, this is great news. I'm surprised Yongnuo didn't do this first tho.

Ellis, strange. I have been using the Yongnuo triggers with Canon speedlites with zero problems every since the triggers came out. I finally sold the Canon trigger since the Yongnuo is actually better what with the AF assist. I've added/replaced a couple of Canon -EX-RT's with the Yongnuo equivalent flashes and no problems. Except the usual, you can't store them with batteries cuz they drain them.

Anyone know if it will be available body only? I have a big Fuji system and don't need this kit lens.

What a bummer. I was hoping for a FF lens. I have most of the other ART lenses for FF and love them

Nevertheless, Sony's ADRs are down 2.5% today. I guess Wall Street was expecting better.

Nothing like reading this on Independence Day. Thanks goodness Britain at least has not lost its mind.

Looks like the XPro 2 will be a helluva camera... 24mpx and AF that works. I will buy one.

On article Phottix Mitros Flash for Canon Review (41 comments in total)

I don't get this. The 580EXii, to which this is compared, is a discontinued item. So you really have to compare it to the 600EX-RT. The 600EX-RT is currently selling for $550 USD, and has sold in the past for $500. So why would you even consider buying this thing with a radio control and all its failings for $400? If you insist on buying cheap sh*t, may as well buy the Yongnuo YN-E3-R controller for $130 and either buy Canon 600EX, or wait for the Yongnuo equivalents which should be out soon.

The lack of an external charger is annoying but if you can afford $750 for a camera you can afford to go to ebay and get a charger and a few spare batteries for next to nothing. That's what i did with my RX100.
