On article Nikon announces development of flagship D5 DSLR (442 comments in total)
In reply to:

Johnedlt: Is this the first time they pre-announced officially? Wouldn't the norm be for a gadget company to release something into the grapevine (rumor mill) if they wanted to generate interest prior to market? ; )

Does it mean they have something that isn't linear in terms of upgrading the line? Something that will get people to pluck 6Gs again? Haha!

of course.

I have a feeling that Sony is beginning to cut into sales. Tell the faithful something new is on the way before they jump ship.

vFunct: Nikon Pro range are perfect cameras. They do everything exactly what a pro needs.

Compare to something like Sony's Alpha A7 series, which is "almost" but not quite there, and it's obvious how perfectly refined these Nikon Pro cameras are.

Sony Alpha's are good for amateurs, while pros will go ahead and use Nikon.

The trollers are out in force!
LOL

The only thing missing on this camera is aggressive pricing.

This is something that Sony can add anytime.

Craig from Nevada: Terrific image. It has the feeling of an Audubon lithograph--and I mean that in the most complementary way.

Kudos to your lens. The very modestly priced Tamron 150-600mm delivered an image you could work with.

All sorts of great stuff we never knew we needed and something for every budget.

GAS is great and it can be affordable too!

The current Pentax DSLR offers great value---K-3 or K3ii. There is room in the full frame world for a high value camera. I think this is a very smart and necessary move for Pentax.

Apparently Sony believes there is a market for $3,300 full frame mirrorless cameras. I always thought the market would be at $1,000.

Learn something new each day.

As a camera for travel, the size and appearance of this camera won't attract a lot of attention on the street.

On article Amazon reveals thinner Fire HD tablets (66 comments in total)
In reply to:

Craig from Nevada: Just purchased the HD10. I was looking for a laptop for travel, but got this on impulse. They claim 8 hours of battery life (I have my doubts about that claim). The size and price was a selling point. I am hoping to send emails, read a book, and watch a movie with it either on planes or hotels--nothing more. The keyboard case was $99.00.

We shall see how this goes.

I already use the Amazon platform (original Kindle, a Kindle Fire).

Craig from Nevada: A tweener--forgoing the advantage of a full frame sensor and the size advantage of m43 with a rated battery life of 250. You get this for $679.

Is that enough to attract anyone other than Canon users?

More than a few Canon/Nikon users have picked up m43 as a second smaller system. I don't know if this is enough to slow that down.

Craig from Nevada: Whew. Lots of people bumming on a $229 camera. This little camera is rugged, sized correctly for travel, and takes decent pictures. It is the kind of camera you pick up before you go on vacation. It will serve you well and if gets beat up, lost or stolen, no big deal.

Oops--$329 camera. S
