On article Nikon announces development of D850 (524 comments in total)
In reply to:

antares103: They are probably developing new and innovative ways to recall thier cameras, porportional to thier costs.

The D850 will not be released, until the D860 is ready to correct the former's faults.

That's Nikon's commitment to quality.

There were more Note 7 phones that didnt explode than did, too...

Also, I believe the D750 also had a recall, and the SB900 was replaced with the SB910, for a reason.

ozturert: Of course, 75 million makes sense...

And this is what courts are for. (Partially) To determine intent. If it is a reasonable mistake, then that is a mitigating factor. However, even if it was a mistake, then the company should be held liable for more than normal pricing, or there is no incentive to not "make mistakes". All of us are subject to this, P&G is no exception. While the photographer may not deserve 75M in any case, having soft penalties makes IP theft a fail-safe practice.

ozturert: Of course, 75 million makes sense...

She had negotiated a fair price before, and they have (allegedly) circumvented that. She is not going for fair, as they did not go for fair. She is going for punative, and good on her. Plus, going against a company that large, I am sure she will have high legal bills that will need to be covered as well. If there were not punative damages available, then what is to stop IP theft? Without punative damages, it would be use them, and we might get away with it. Worst case, we will have to pay the same we would have up front. Even with modest punative damages, they numbers game would mean they would likely win more than they lost, so it still doesn't stop them. Once this becomes the norm, then IP rights are worthless, and it is not long before innovation ceases.

In any case, I doubt she actually expects that much.

Roland_Lislevane: A few years ago I bought a set of three brand new Bowens monolights. On the second job, one of the lights popped a capacitor and the chemicals spilled on the client's hardwood floor. The repair took a full month. Needless to say, I now use a different brand of studio flash.

blown caps happen. But thats a bit long on the repair side, if that was the in-house time.

Also, super cool you can adjust power on this guy. One of the more simple layouts I have seen.

cosinaphile: what person in his right mind does not already understand that the cell phone, with its lifetime for many users of 12to24 months, is already the closest thing consumers use to a disposable camera

the difference is, of course, a price tag of 649 to 969

yellow stickers are an accessory not a defineing characteristic

Thank you for leading me down that rabbit hole. Two hours I will never get back.

Why do you need to wait 12 hours between "rolls"?

Also, there were many families who had about 3 birthdays and 2 Christmases on a disposable camera. The phone would literally be disposed of faster than the camera.

Glen Barrington: Wow! all the disadvantages of film with none of the benefits of digital. Did ANYONE at Ritz ask why anyone would buy such a camera?

Digital as a Buzz word. Like the Quantaray (Ritz) branded "Digital" tripods.

No, no one asked. The managment couldn't lead thier way out of a paperbag, and the employees knew there was no point in asking. I was with the company for three years, shortly after this was released, and I never sold one. Then again, there was a buch of stuff cluttering our counters that we never sold, but couldnt get the 20D (the hottest camera at the time) to put on the shelf. Little wonder the company failed. Also, the man in charge was the man in charge of Circuit City when it failed.

antares103: OK. smartphones are great. But seriously, does EVERYTHING need to pass through my phone in order to work?

Jack of all trades, master of none. Its nice to have the ability to change things via phone. But I do not like to be required to use my phone for it to work.

JanMatthys: If they're just doing their job, and doing it correctly, what are they trying to hide?

First, they may not be doing thier job right. Second, who is deciding what is correct and what is not? Third, there is the legitimate concern of the possibility of interference, both with teh officers doing thier job as well as photographers positioning themselves into harm's way, where the officers then need to provide resources to protect them, and possibly adding to potention litigation. Fourth, there is instance after instance after instance that proves that photos and video can lie.

With that said, I do agree with the courts in this case.

PhotoKhan: I love it when "Eco" is no major worry for the overall business but is then dully touted when the time comes to make some aditional bucks.

It's almost as callous and disingenuous as charging 611$ to basically have others helping Samsung getting rid of their otherwise worthless tech-junk.

If Karma was really a b☆tch, I can imagine what would so ironically happen to these "Fan" devices...

Everything is worth what people will pay for it. If people dont want to pay the price, the price will go down or the product will go away.
