About me:

My large collection of Canon FD lenses is back to life. Thanks to mirrorless cameras and adapters. I particularly love the FD 35-105mm w/macro, f/3.5, which is well known for its clarity and sharpness, and the FD 50mm, 1.2, L.

Cheers Dan,
And Wenmie looks cute under her $11 umbrella.
Awesome product ... For $60, there is hope now that, with the cooperation of the wind, I could be flying above the scene ... a human drone if you like, but not remotely controlled :-)

dash2k8: This piece is overly opinionated. It basically tells the reader repeatedly "this is dumb; don't buy it." I think we're all smart enough to make purchase decisions on our own, we don't need a condescending article to impose the author's personal distaste on us. If they filed this under "opinion" or "editorial," fine, but "news"? Long live responsible journalism.

'There was no discussion whatsoever about its practicality, ease-of-use, or any information of use."
What is so complicated about an umbrella that needs such a technical discussion?
Lighten up a little.

rev32: Wow. This is really important to know about. I'd love to be able to make a difference through photography too. Thank you DP for publishing this article.

Then just join the Blue Earth Alliance

Jim Evidon: I have found it disappointing if not distressing that Adobe has consistently overlooked the many legacy lenses that most LR users have. There is a whole raft of Leica M mount lenses from Zeiss, CV, and Leica/Leitz that do not appear in their collections of lens profiles. Just because the users of these lenses are considered traditionalist or maybe just old fashioned doesn't mean that they enjoy the laborious and time consuming process of resorting to Adobe's Lens Profiler. Adobe seems to be both blind and deaf or maybe they just can't be bothered.

All of the above!!!

OlyPent: Remember when Olympus used to measure their Super High Grade lenses at 60lp/mm? Now they've got 10lp/mm on measurement charts?

The line-pairs/mm (lp/mm) indicate the RESOLUTION capability of a lens.
Resolution is a very important factor when purchasing or evaluating a lens.
This, of course, doesn't meant "contrast" is less important.
That's why the Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) chart measures both.

Fox is too busy paying $millions to settle the many sexual harassment scandals against some of the biggest names at Fox.

cosinaphile: if it has a micro sd card slot and a way to use headphones that does not include a dongle , than its a phone i can at least respect

It has both.
Even the Honor 8 that hit the market last October has both.

Phily: Impressive specs for such a small camera. I love it because I will never buy a huge lens for my 7D or my M3 and 1 inch sensor cameras with such reach can be heavy. They'll sell them like hotcakes. I know I'll get one.

Impressive 1/2.3" sensor in 2017 for sure!!!

Link | Posted on Apr 6, 2017 at 15:00 UTC

A larger sensor at the expense of lower zoom range would be much more desirable from image quality point of view.
I doubt that images from this sensor at ISO 1600 would be anything to brag about.
At least a 1/1.7" sensor and (maybe) 600mm (or even 500mm) zoom range (at this camera size) would've been much more attractive, and I certainly would consider it.
Holding a camera of this size steady at 1000mm (almost) would be quite a challenge (if even possible at all) to most of its intended users.
Personally, I'd never waste money anymore on 1/2.3" sensor based cameras regardless of the price.

Good memories. The price of the used 10D has jumped up by 25% on eBay :)

sh10453: I would not use products from any monopoly.
I'd rather have choices.
There are more than a dozen companies in the desktop and laptop business, putting on the market endless variations of computing power, with fierce competition.
It's never too late to dump monopoly products and join mainstream, unless you enjoy being tied up from the neck.
If it wasn't for the iPhone, Apple would be on a ventilator.
It'll take just one iPhone mistake, like the S7 Note's debacle, and Apple would be running down hill like a snowball.

True, but look how many companies make PC's and laptops that can run Windows (or Linux, or any other free OS's such as BCD, Android, Chrome, etc.). You can even build your own.
You have plenty of hardware and OS choices.

Monopoly: a market in which there are many buyers but only one seller.

Apple is not a monopoly?
I'm not aware of other companies that make a Mac compatible computers.
If this is not a monopoly, then I don't know what a monopoly is.

Here is the OS share worldwide that shows how "dominant" Apple computers are:

The Mac still dominates?
Is that why the Apple computer share worldwide is at 2%?

sh10453: After my experience with the $100 EF to NEX adapter's poor performance (Fotodiox Pro Fusion, Canon EF to Sony Nex adapter), I am not impressed with Fotodiox's claims, and that means I won't take their word for their other products.
They need to know that "trust" is extremely important.
So, never exaggerate performance or results. It's a sure way to lose customers!!!
I waisted $100, but I "won't get fooled again", as The Who put it.

And at a fraction of the price.

Great job ML.
I have their "other" software installed on one of my Canon 5D's, and I'm happy with the added functionality.
