A lot of companies resorting to much shark jumping these days!

Jonathan Brady: I hope people who refer to it as "5DC" or "5D Classic" get out of bed in the morning, walk toward the bathroom, and stub their toes on the door frame as they're going to pee. Every morning. Forever.

"Lighten up Francis..." lol

dynaxx: Just one more symptom of a society that now has a dull and uneducated majority, that used to be a minority. Everything has to be dummed-down to its simplest level so they can cope and the simplest photography is found in a mobile telephone.

Too many examples in modern life but look at newspapers, TV programs, cinema that now use simple language/ideas and avoid complexity because most people can't handle it.

Understanding how photography works does not involve any difficult concepts or skills but the short attention span of the current generation rules out reading a book on the subject that was always the way of learning anything new for my generation.

very true what you said!

p.s. "dumbed-down" isn't spelled "dummed-down".

inrissk: What stops a 3rd party vendor to sell it to overseas on Ebay or Alibaba?

It's a shame for innovators like GoPro to lose out to copycatters.

Lol, before he just called me racist against Asians, Chinese in particular. And now that @Papi61 realizes I'm Asian, he has resorted to labeling me "right-wing Korean" which is another way of saying the same thing, a.k.a. cloning! Talk about one trick pony! It would be funny if it weren't so sad.

When one is CONVINCED the world is filled with prejudiced people, of course it'll look that way. I feel so sad for you Papi; I wish you would take of those skewed glasses and realize disagreements aren't always rooted in racism! Since this is photography forum - until people hijack it into something else altogether - here's another metaphor: try different lenses or focal lengths and you'll see more what's out there.

Have a nice day everyone.

@villagranvicent
we're in trouble 'cause apparently @papi61 is a mind reader! nah, just your typical Sherlock-wannabe and apparently right-hatin' leftist by his own prejudices.

just speak on the issues @papi61 instead of name-calling, stereo-typing and pigeon-holling people. why? because it shows your argument and reasoning cannot stand on their own merit. you think just blindly calling people racist will some how make them back down? oh please.

and we won't even get into (though a little) the many military thievery of PRC. Care to explain Varyag->Liaoning, the Russian aircraft carrier supposedly bought to convert into casino which has been modernized to aid their blue navy ambitions. talk about shameless and tawdry!

wrong again, i highly respect the great civilization which is China, just not the unusually many thieves who hail from there - and elsewhere - around the globe.

let's not waste any more time with this @Papi61 who sees what he wants to see.

@papi61
"But you're still sure that Asian people are too stupid to create anything original..."

really? no fool ever said that! the Chinese invented plenty such as the gunpowder, paper, etc.; we Koreans invented the first metal movable type long before Gutenberg; the Japanese are world class now. but let's not deny that modern China steals left and right.

"there are countless infringement lawsuits in US courts, and I don't believe Chinese or Asians in general constitute the majority of the defendants."

umm... it's kinda hard to go after "countless" no-name knock offs you know. just google image "chinese fakes"! :-P and i have nothing against Asians in general (just thieves everywhere) as i am Asian one myself.

You had me at "as per Eric Holder's words"! Riiiiight... because Holder is the paragon of all that is judicious, fair and sapient? Give me a break dude Holder's is a joke who was not worth of the office, and it has nothing to do with his race. I have no problem having a black, yellow or brown POTUS or any other prominent office as long as he/she is qualified.

Wake up and smell the coffee our racism superhero a.k.a. Papi61 because racism is EVERYWHERE (including where I was born and 2 other countries I lived in) and the U.S. is no more guilty than other nations; it's that many things that happens in our country make it to global news.

And STOP putting words in others' mouth - no one said only the Chinese are guilty of copying - because it weakens your argument, showing patently that you're not really capable of representing your detractors.

@Papi61 Listen to yourself:

"Oh, and BTW, stop with the thinly-veiled anti-Chinese racism..."
"Yeah, that's totally racist."
"Don't be a racist. The Chinese aren't anymore "cloners" than Americans."
"you're clearly a racist."

Wow, talk about a chip on the shoulder and broken record. Have fun much going around calling everyone a racist? What are you the self-designated anti-racist Superman? And no I'm not stalkin' because this is just from one thread! smh

@Papi61 Here we go again with the tawdry racist card. Not sure if you're talking to me, but if you are I happen to be Asian so you're clearly... not Sherlock. Thanks for the irony of the day. I don't think anyone insinuated only Asians copy but the fact is China along with Russia is among the guiltiest in the world.

wrong again not-even-halfwaythere.
how quaint to be stalked by an i-know-more-than-you type based couple of words. these days every joe thinks he's Sherlock.
mr. myopic, it's about the presentation, package and UI not just the raw technology that is out there.

Excuse me? Get on the right spelling horse mr. "get of". I said innovator not inventor but since you were in such a haste to be rude you didn't have chance to read. Have an average day.

True and agreed. But modern R&D costs pretty penny these days. Many will be tempted for sure.

noflashplease: Xiaomi is the third biggest global smartphone manufacturer after Samsung and Apple? Xiaomi has an overall corporate valuation of $46 billion, despite only having been founded in 2010? All true, apparently.

"Wow!" said Mao. "Dang, globalization too is a two-edged sword..." said Samsung Apple. ;-)

Will try to avoid such blatant intellectual property thievery...
