Harry_Worth: Argh 'analog' cameras, Film camera!!

Actually, "analog" moving parts are used to move film inside camera. On the other hand, moving parts are used to create digital images as well, like shutter and lens leaf parts. In general true digital camera does not exist by definition and by how parts interact with each other. It is digitally controlled analog camera with digital sensor, if that makes any sense. But in a sense film, camera is actually analog but just to break it up, for human understanding and recognition, we call it film camera.

(unknown member): This seems to be the first story about Finland and fins with cameras in DPREVIEW???
Did read all comments. Seems that younger people just do not understand the following. If one really wants to learn photography, the analog process is superior to anything else. I`ve been teaching photojournalism for 25 years. The best way to get students understand - is to make them start with cams that have only ISO and shutter and F-stop settings plus focus ring. Then developing and measuring density values and finally scanning and again carefully watching what happens. Then they get the main idea which is: "modern cams make You just press the button and hope for the best, but ancient ones really teach You how to think and shoot".
Toxic...??? producing millions of modern DSLR`s etc pollutes the world much more than using old ones for decades. Photography is about thinking, not about a new camera set every year. But thinking is not anymore cool these days - stupidity is.
And I´m a fin :-)

C41 developing process is toxic for the environment not to mention actual film manufacturing. I am still with my trusty 20D since 2005 and various film cameras. Actually using digital camera did make me better analog user. So I am not sure that learning with film is as beneficial to be better digital photographer it can go both ways.

mahonj: I have great respect for the Finns.
They have great determination and a singular view of life.
They gave is the Moomins and Nokia and Linux to name a few.
They fought the Russians to a standstill (almost) in the winter war of 1939-40.
I think this is a great idea - I am not sure what it will lead to, but it is certainly a great thing.
Maybe they'll get a generation of mechanical and optical engineers and technicians out of it - not a bad result.

Um if this business fails they have amazing safety net. If I knew I could survive like this, I would start rescuing old used toilet paper from recycling bins, as future failed business model.

So idea is not to rescue, idea is to repair and re-sale items. If they are going to save them, hopefully they would be in museums to be preserved for future generations. Misleading a bit.

You will never change their mind with logic or fact. They will not accept the simplest challenges to use their own skills to prove to themselves a yes or no answer.

They only deflect and will call you indoctrinated.

Believing what I see with my own eyes yes.Drawing my own conclusion from my own critical thinking and life experience , yes. But not a cave man, thank you again stranger from Internet calling me names for no reason.Trusting what I see on Internet while having full in depth understanding of photo editing software how easy is to manipulate, not much trust there. If we are talking film or slides I would not try to discredit those...

Phil A Martin: As viewed from earth, the moon was a "waning crescent" with 1% illumination on the 3rd February 2019, on the next day, 4th February, it was a new moon with 0% illumination as seen from earth. We might call it the dark side of the moon, thank you Pink Floyd but that is a misnomer. During a new moon, the side of the moon facing the earth is dark, whilst the far side is fully illuminated by the Sun. That is why in the image, both the earth and the moon are illuminated and by a single light source, the Sun.

This is a truly wonderful image and it's sad that so many dismiss it and instead respond with pathetic wisecracks but then as the old Chinese proverb goes, when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.

You will make me to do actual 3D model with all publicly available data to prove you wrong. From position of the sun to position of satellite, to sun position and light direction, and based on that photo my data and render will be right.

Actually earth is having a rim and 2 light sources. There is no shadow on earth where is supposed to be if it was illuminated by single light source. You are obviously looking at a different photo or maybe your wise middle finger is looking at it? It is not single light source on earth Mr.Huawei.

I do believe since I really can not see China from a clouds that forms in a distance since they are curving around earth. This is the only personal earth reference and perception I have, beside the science that claims, and I have never been to space so I am not commenting on that, since NASA did. If it was flat this would be possible to see really into distance but not the case. You sound just like my wife presuming without knowing. This is what she would say: "I think you really do not like my food" even when I really like it. I can also say that you believe, that in a radio, small people ,live inside and give us news (LOL) I do know you are not that dumb.So prejudging is not nice if you do not know random people. I just do not like manipulation in plain sight.Like that 32kb pasted representation planet earth, with different light source.Is annoying none of us will see real raw photos taken without heavy handed edit. Truth is never black and white, only fools believe into that is.

You did not answer the question, why 2 different light sources? Again to repeat I do believe we are on circular planet. Why 2 light sources?

Garug: "2018 MacBook Pro user was quoted a $600 repair fee by an Apple Store Genius Bar in Canada."

That is just genious from Apple side, replase $6 speaker and $60 labor charge the customer $600.

And it it their fault, i.e. it would be only fair that they would compensate the inconviniece of taking the computer to repair and wait for a week or two without computer. By they way they yare calculating, I think $600 compensation would be just fair.

Toth22 you obviously do not live in Canada.Where every service is triple the amount of $ compared to US. If you want plumber to fix toilet tank chain that is 8$ in Home Depot plumber fix is 360$.This is a true story.No wonder 10$ speaker is 600$ to repair.

On article Panasonic Lumix DC-S1 review (2020 comments in total)

I think they were listening what consumers have to say.Everything on this system is more appealing than Nic Can combined. And I am Canon fan boy.

Can you explain to me, why moon and earth have 2 different light sources? Me as a person that does believe we living on rounded shape (earth is not perfect round shape according to NASA). So why 2 different light sources? I just need answer to that.

srados: "Look mom no stars" (again). Push levels and fake become obvious. I do this with every NASA image. They have mix of fakes and real ones, but Chinese as they do knock off of everything they faked even this one.
Really disappointing images. Even the "real ones" look fake when you push levels.
Also moon has perfect 1 pixel white halo without any alteration.

NASA/Chinese/Russians can take camera expose for STARS then expose for MOON/Earth and serve general public yet another COMPOSITE image. How hard is that? Am I asking much?

aftab: It is difficult to understand where Panasonic wants to go with this kind of pricing of the camera bodies and the lenses. FF ILC is a small market, although is said to be growing. Canon and Nikon have a huge loyal base. They will stick to Canon and Nikon and will move to Canon and Nikon FF mirrorless when they feel the time is right. This group of people has resisted switching to Sony, although others did. Sony now has a growing customer base and Panasonic will have to compete with Sony a lot more than they will have to compete with Canon and Nikon. Yet, S1 is 500 dollars dearer than A7III. Sony has a lot more lenses and they are cheaper. From many early reports, Panasonic's video AF is still inferior to competitions. Difficult to understand Panasonic's strategy as a newcomer to this small and very competitive segment of the market.

Yes that is why 20-30% of Sony users use Canon lenses with adapter.

Nasa need better resolution sensors. These 72 dpi 400 pixels by 300 pixels are really top notch. It is interesting we picked up few stars. Usually there are no star at all.
