On article Sony a9 first look videos (301 comments in total)

Specs look good, sure do. When/if the lens situation firms up they could be serious competition to Canon/Nikon. However, Cameras are such a small part of Sony corp. revenue, the product line can be eliminated in very short order should the balance sheet dictate (a la Samsung). Canon and Nikon have a lot more skin in the game.

Price is interesting, I paid a touch less for my (new) M5 here in China.

Hmmmm.... '...However it is important to differentiate between theft and disappearance. Theft is when the item is stolen from the renter. Disappearance is when the renter disappears with the equipment, which is extremely rare (.01% of all rentals). The insurance and damage coverage available on KitSplit do cover theft, however they do not cover disappearance....'
Really? So if the renter 'disappears' with my gear their 'insurance' won't cover it?
No thanks.

At those price points, I hope they are more reliable than some of the LaCie 'rugged' devices I've had.

I had a V72 a while back, lasted less than 6 months of very light use. Would not recommend.

Love throwback Thursday, and thanks for not calling the 5D a 'Mark 1'.

Canon should invest in sensor technology (not ridiculous marketing schemes) - sensors which can compete/surpass Sony would be massive marketing in and of themselves.

Yea, I guess if/when the cloud is 'up' you can do that, otherwise.......
Fact is, not everyone lives in the US, and not everyone has a 10M 99.999% uptime connection. Thanks Adobe.

On article CES 2014: Best of the show (minus the bendy TVs) (42 comments in total)

I think the reason why people don't take Samsung (or Sony for that matter) seriously is because their product range is so diverse, eliminating photographic products due to poor financial performance will be relatively easy and financially painless for them. However, on the consumer side we all have the problem of 'investments' in glass, and it won't be financially painless for us to make a change.
