What Huawei and the other "banned" companies don't understand is, they need to hire lobbyists in the USA.

Of all the foreign companies, why are only a few (kaspersky, huawei) singled out as suspicious spies by the government?

So far the story comes from TSA perspective. It might be biased. I would like to hear it from the TV station's perspective.

Also, TSA needs to clarify what is considered a fake bomb. Otherwise, they can arrest anyone they don't like and say whatever they are carrying is a fake bomb. And why stop at fake bomb. You could be accused of carrying a fake knife, fake gun, fake ammo, fake fake bomb (something that looks vaguely like a fake bomb), ...

How do you defend that? Basically, they can arrest you and make up an excuse.

Always have a backup photographer.
Many photo enthusiasts are willing to shoot a wedding for free.

Next time ask the monkey to sign over the copyright and all other rights, and also a model release. In return pay the monkey some bananas to make it a contract. That should cover all possible legal issues.

They are going to announce they sold out of the phone in 1 minute to generate buzz. Almost nobody would be able to buy one.

On article Chicago-based Calumet Photographic closes U.S. stores (195 comments in total)

Before online shopping, calumet's mail order prices were always higher than B&H. In the course of 20 years I may have visited their online stores a few times but never bought anything. Most of my purchases were from B&H.

I could not understand how they stayed in business. Going out of business, that I can understand.

So you have to keep learning new stuff in order to reap the benefit of improved memory?

I'm at the age when I keep forgetting stuff. If I learn photography, I may forget what I learn in a month. If I relearn the stuff I forgot, would I also improve my memory?

If this camcorder has high bandwidth memory cards, it is a shame they don't also offer a slow motion/high frame rate feature.

Now would be a good time for photoshop competitors to woe users away from adobe.

In reply to:

Franka T.L.: The real question one must asked : how come the sport community had still not able to integrate better the technology available to them to better police and judge. Sport events usually happen at a fast pace, a pace that even the most trained might find challenging and missing some key event happening. This is where technology can help and should.

The judges would cry foul if you take away their jobs.

I can shoot a photo with my DSLR, check the histogram, and reshoot another one without having to fiddle with another device.

Gimmicky indeed. If you buy one of these, you lose most of the interchangeability. Now you have to buy the same color lense from pentax.

A photographer values cameras as tools. A camera nut values them as objects.

On article Photographer turns to iPhone for creative wedding shoot (131 comments in total)

You won't be able to use flash, and you can't blur out the background, you can't adjust exposure, and you're limited to wide angle. The only advantage is you can quickly post the photos online and apply some predefined photo effects.

I still prefer DSLR. I like to have control, and I wouldn't post any photo without retouching them in photoshop first.

The results speak for themselves. The photos samples look like snapshots and not professional photos.

Sigma should be more actively promoting the advantage of this sensor and have some photos to show what it can do that other sensors cannot.
