panchorancho: 4 hipsters shoot the same boring hipster model with thick framed glasses my old man in the 80s used to wear, while filming in that saturated/desaturated look every hipster on Instagram uses. They even bust out the over used LED lights. I'm surprised they also didn't bust out the prism for some rainbow effects and an image projector with a generic artsy fartsy image overlayed on the model. After that, I'm sure they went to a run down part of town to open an overpriced cafe and thrift shop!

As if fashion photography used to be all about originality, and not following trends. Puhlease.

Danielvr: Here's another short documentary about a camera repairman. It's in Japanese, but it's strangely satisfying to watch even if (like me) you don't understand a word of what is being said: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKno7C000EA

At the start, the line of four Voigtlander Vitessa folding 35mms was amazing, for me...my first camera.

LiangMing: Come on, it just say if you trade in your old camera, you get what ever the trade-in value from the vendor, PLUS $300 or $500 from Sony when you buy the Sony camera at the same time.

Right there...3rd paragraph.

OlyPent: Do people really use wrist-straps? Seems like a dangling camera would be a pain in the neck and vulnerable to knocks.

Exactly Impulses --like a short-term third-hand.
The best solution I've found for having the camera out, and ready, but not flopping around on my hip or chest.

Christopher Tanner: I'd like to think that my D750 is worth more than $500.00 No thanks Sony.

Imagine that...

blackcoffee17: Why would anyone trade a camera for $500 when they can sell it on the used market for much more. Except if in very bad condition or if they accept cameras with defects.

People trade cars in every day, for less. Convenience is the number one reason. Safety is another...

luv4lenses: They couldn't give that camera away! Wow DPReview your biasis is so obvious now. Many other camera companies have deals going on at the moment but you some how fail to mention them? Those Sony checks must be nice. SMH

Flat-Earthers?

The wrist strap allows you to let the camera dangle, safely, while you use both hands for something else (looking through your bag?) They are the best strap for a mirrorless, IMHO, especially when you hate neck-straps.
I love people that criticize a tool they've never actually used, Olypent.

nathantw: That's right. When cleaning the room sweep the dirt and glass shards under the cabinets. Don't bother with a dust pan.

Those are adhesive rollers. I generally avoid commenting, when I have no knowledge to impart.

Astrotripper: Kinda disturbing to see the meaning of "sexual harassment" watered down so much as to mean "a man offended a woman". This is very dangerous and in the long run, if common enough, will simply undo decades of progress modern societies made since the first feminist movements.

I'm responding strictly to the OP Rubberdials...where the real nonsense remains.

That's what the men say, astrotripper. These days, I'm more interested in what the women have to say.

jadot: It's 2017 and still the little boys are finding it necessary to pass approval/disapprove of

a) How a female person is 'squatting' (snigger)
b) How a woman chooses to adorn her body
c) Whether or not a woman has hair anywhere on her body

You little boys are a joke. Get up from your internet slumber and have a look in the mirror, then try to figure out why women have always found you repulsive. Or are you some kind of pimp, where only the "finest Bs & Hs" come up to your hard man standard.

Creep.

Well said deliverator.

Eric Hensel: I'm probably showing my age, but I hate coming around the bend, alongside a beautiful creek, and there's those danged rock-balancing things...which were slightly clever the first 8, or so, times I saw them. I'll give these kids the benefit of the doubt, and assume they removed them along with the trash, when they left...

"It's a way to leave a mark on nature, while doing no harm."
You have a point, there.
Why the need to leave a mark, though.

Like your average Takumar of yore then .

From the FAQ:
"Fortunately, we have great investors that support our vision and long-term view. That means for now we don't have to focus on making money.

In the future we will make money by creating new opportunities for creators. We will keep a fair piece of that value in return for our efforts."

In reply to:

Alphaloki: I would expect a set of sample images for a macro lens to have a lot more macro images than shots of buildings and construction sites, but maybe I'm just narrow minded. I maybe the next review of a 300mm F/4 lens might have more macro shot samples than race cars and birds I suppose. Perhaps there's a trend I'm missing. Are lens test assignments handed out as punishment? A cat photo? Well, you don't see many of those I guess. If you had a tight shot of a cat's eye, I'd get it, but I'm starting to think the quality of coverage on this site is ahhhh...lacking. Put a little effort into utilizing the headline feature of the lens, huh?

Maybe if you had actually read the article alphaloki?
