mfinley: Fantastic job you should be very proud of yourself, what a tremendous effort you put into it!
One word in regard to the bears that would change everything for you - Shotgun.

Good to know that Canada prefers that unlike in the USA, the answer to everything that is a perceived threat is not killing it.

$500? I'll just stick with my $10 USB 3.0 reader, thank you.

NemanRa: when will instagram let us to post the photos from the computers?
i believe that i'm not the only one, lots of enthusiasts would share their work. it is much easier to upload the photos, instead of transferring them to the mobile device...

On article Fujifilm X-A3 Review (240 comments in total)

I have a couple of XT-2s and most of the lenses but wanted a smaller walking around camera. I didn't want that big or expensive kit zoom, in fact I wanted to do exactly what is show in the photo, stick the 27mm on it. So I patiently waited on ebay until I found someone selling the body only, for which I pad $350. Very happy so far.

This will work best on a Sony.

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.

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.
