On article This camera is made of 32,000 drinking straws (178 comments in total)

Hmm, well. Was is the exact implication of 'this is possible!'?

That is should be done? That the result is by necessity interesting? Or...?

Mike CH: What, exactly, is the use of the aperture ring? The aperture is the one setting, after ISO, that I change most deliberately...?!?

Just the C command setting isn't enough for me. The A auto setting, on the other hand, that has the potential to interest me. If aperture, shutter and ISO all have separate dials with A auto settings, then the mode dial can be done away with with, and free combinations between Auto settings, including ISO!, becomes possible. Is that the way it is?

The focus (and the zoom) ring(s) on the lens are very well placed because they are minutely adjusted for many images. I, for one, select the aperture I want, and leave it at that. That is easier done on the body.

Of course it is. But why should that be on the lens? That's an anachronism, really

Zebadee69: What happens to the interest made from sitting on $34 million?

What interest? Taken a look at the interest rates lately?

JackM: Note to self: never try to innovate or invent anything. People will sue you.

So lying is perfectly ok? As long as it is done under the guise of innovation?

The US - the only place in the world where a $2.2b lawsuit over a photograph is even conceivable...

From what, exactly?

Mike CH: Lenses, lenses, lenses...?!?

I can't be the only thinking that a roundup of ILC - Interchangeable Lens Cameras - ought to at least mention lenses available for the different cameras 'rounded up' as well as possibilities/necessities such as adaptors?

Otherwise - what's the point of spending 2000+ on a body without even considering the other half of the equation?

Yes, I would actually like them to test the lenses.

I mean, they call themselves Digital Photography Review, and not Digital Camera Review, right?

Make sense?

If they can do that for the lenses, they can certainly search for the bodies, too.

Mike CH: Why do I get the feeling that neither DPR nor Time knows what meme actually means...

(Hint it does not mean 'a lot of re-tweets' :-) )

For something to turn into a meme, it needs to be recognisable by people; a shared idea, part of the shared culture. A witty remark, re-twittered, isn't there, yet. It may be, later. But it takes more than that.

Take a look at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meme for a better explanation than the wiktionary one...
