  • People who submerge their DSLR underwater inside of a bag deserve to have their cameras destroyed. Protecting from splash or an accidental drop in the water is one thing, but expecting this to work ...
  • Are you in Green Mode?
  • I don’t agree at all. A camera takes photographs.  The camera doesn’t become obsolete just because someone invents a better feature.  Yes, we are enthusiasts who get excited by the latest ...
  • Photographers make photographs. In this genre, there is no obsolescence. There are people who happily use ten year-old cameras. The ten year-old photos I took of my family still look great... that ...
  • Solid state can still break or wear out.  Flash memory has s limited lifetime, and flash cards fail all the time. In an optical viewfinder, the moving element is a mirror.  It’s very very rare for ...
  • Replied in Lenses
    Canon has already announced and shipped their Mirrorless mount, and an adapter which supports all EF lenses.
  • Replied in The problem
    Exactly.  Frame rate will not be consistent, and even if it were, the buffer would fill and the camera wouldn’t be able to write out to storage fast enough, unless maybe you used a lower ...
  • Replied in Yes. Why? 8K
    Camera companies who didn’t create complete 4K solutions for still cameras are at a big disadvantage, whether people want 4K or not. 8K, 32mp, is the future, and eventually, it will be a must-have, ...
  • You get it or you don’t.  A six foot tall 1080p projector isn’t nearly the same thing as a six foot tall 8K OLED with the right content.  One is like a movie screen and most be viewed in darkness ...
  • Sony has some big OLED TV’s which use the glass as a bank of surround sound speakers.
  • The paradigm of television is intended to change with 8K. You have to stop thinking it’s the same thing you’ve seen but with more dots. As I said: “Some day, Joe Sixpack will buy a TV that’s seven ...
  • Replied in Survival
    Wow.  We didn’t force people to buy TV’s.  There was a massive technology race among manufacturers to build the best, cheapest televisions possible.  Innovations like the ultra-thin LED backlight, ...
  • Replied in Survival
    You might think that televisions are very simple devices which have very little technology inside and very little of it is important.  But you never designed a television, either.  There are ...
  • There will be bigger TV’s and better computers, but... NOBODY WILL EVER BUILD A BETTER AMP THAN A MARSHALL TUBE AMP!!!
  • I can’t tell you what people will buy. I’m only providing a context for what the technology is intended to deliver. “The Internet cannot ever possibly become fast enough for streaming video.” “Nobo ...
  • We’ve LIVED through this already! People bought HDTV’s because they were bigger and flatter than CRT TV’s. “But there’s no content”. “Those TV’s are SO expensive!” “I can’t see the difference!” And ...
  • Replied in Survival
    Isn’t that obvious?  There are dozens of examples of technology essential to the marketability of televisions. * Color TV * Big Screen TV * Flat Screen TV * 720p HD TV * 1080p FullHD TV * Smart TV * 4K
  • Replied in LowePro Flipside
    I’ve had a Flipside 400AW pack for about seven years, and it is fantastic.  It can hold that much equipment and it is very durable.  Truly outstanding. I’ve taken it loaded with gear to many rock ...
  • The Manual is confusing.  It does clearly state 5.4fps... it just says that in the chapter on LiveView.  It doesn’t say that the camera can shoot bursts with focus tracking at 5.4fps “in ...
  • There are corporations in Japan and Korea who are strongly dedicated to the extreme best video quality, and most of us buy cameras and televisions from them. Content is another story.  If you want ...
