Vegetable Police: Comes with a premium leather strap! I didn't know killing a cow and dousing it's rotting flesh in chemicals that destroy not only the environment, but the health of the poor workers tasked with this unnecessary job, was considered premium. It's barbaric and cruel.

I may have overreacted lol.

@ Vegetable Police Actually I did my research and was hoping you had not. I'm not being defensive just doing a little non-serious wind-up.

Personally, I do not eat that much meat and I am keenly aware on the excesses and abuses of humans towards each other, animals and this planet.

Here is the real solution to your problem and issues http://www.jw.org there is no hope in the hands of mankind, only further abuse and horror.

@Vegatable Police, Humans have incisors for a reason.

Last year I scanned loads of my father-in-law's colour slides made on Perutz film. The quality of the colour was amazing, really beautiful.

I will definitely buy some Ektachrome.

entoman: As someone who has been taking photographs since the 1960's, I fully understand the "creative satisfaction of a physical end product", but I sure don't want to return to the days of tramlined films, 2-3 week processing times, excessive grain, almost non-existent exposure tolerance, storage problems etc etc. Move forwards, not backwards, and who the hell is "kodak" now - presumably someone in China is banging this stuff out? Getting it processed in Europe is a virtual no-go, and ridiculously expensive, and I don't really fancy processing 200-300 films myself after an expedition.

Sending off my holiday films to "Bonus Print" and waiting for the postman to delivery the prints two weeks later and hearing that satisfying thud on the mat. And the excitement of going through the prints is something that I really, really miss.

The more cows that are killed the less they can pump methane into the atmosphere via flatulence the less global warming increases.

Ergo: Killing cows is good.

Warning: This post has nothing to do with photography.

Michael Ma: You can fix this with a cooling dongle. Only $70. Be brave.

Were you as bitchy when Samsung had the exploding phones?

RedFox88: No problem with mine

@jimofcan, that's right, look on the bright side! Millions of them made (both Apple and Android) relatively few go wrong!

sh10453: The fierce competition, the race to put a new product on the market before the other competitor does, the intense pressure on engineers and the squeezing of their budgets by bean counters (so executives can line up their pockets with bigger bonuses), ..., do not give engineering sufficient testing time for new products,

This is not limited to phones. Other products will hit the market with such problems (TVs, cameras, computer graphics boards, various electronic devices, etc.).
So this will not be the last we hear about such problems. No surprises anymore.

Such issues, if not handled with grace (towards the customer), and especially if they are repeated, will do a lot of damage to the reputation of a company and its products. They can't expect to live on past glory.

Companies need to start taking care of their engineers more than taking care of their bean counters.

@Zodiacfml, What! Like Android users DON'T upgrade as frequently! Sounds like you are just jealous of the money person you aspire to be!

On article Google Pixel XL camera review (185 comments in total)
In reply to:

newby mcnewberstein: The reviewer is out of their freakin' mind. The Pixel XL's image quality is clearly leagues ahead of the competition thanks to its image stacking HDR. The comparison tool shows the results: Pixel at 1150 ISO has more detail than Lumia 950 does at 320 ISO. I don't think your reviewer fully appreciates how much image stacking improves image quality. This camera deserves 90%+ and a gold mark.

Perhaps you should take up reviewing then!

DuxX: Thanks to Television and photography one sick man, a killer, and one militant terrorist group is successfully sent their message to the world. Great job!
Who can say and prove now that all of this (photo session and message sending) is not planed before this monstrous crime against humanity, ha?

If anyone thinks that this photograph or any like it will popularise, promote, or glamourise this despicable and evil act or the ideology behind it, then you are quite simple wrong.

Any sane, rational person viewing this photograph will be repulsed by this scum's act and his perverted ideology.

In reply to:

techjedi: With great respect, the photographer helped the assassin glamourize the murder and this photo will serve as a recruiting tool for terrorist groups. How exactly does this serve as an encouragement for pro photography? It is a great picture, but I am fairly sure the civilized world would have been no less off without it.

arhmatic: The User Interface is a significant part of the shooting experience. I am glad to see Haselblad giving this proper attention. I hope all others would follow. Fujifilm you too!

@Mfritter I understand your frustration! But, look at it this way, it must be a nightmare being a UI designer with all the (at times very warranted) bitching that comes their way. Can't please everybody sadly.
