On article Spoilt for choice: which Sony RX100 is right for you? (306 comments in total)

I recently purchased the M5 and previously had the original RX100 and the M2. This new version is MUCH better than the M2 in every way but one -- battery life. Right now, I am in Rome and my first battery was exhausted in under two hours and maybe 40 to 50 photos. I attribute this staggering power consumption to leaving the camera on between shots rather than shutting down and turning on repeatedly. Anyhow, I do hope Sony has a software fix for this.

On article Fast Five: Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V Review (427 comments in total)

Incredible features (my prior one was the M2), but the drain manifested so far by the battery is a bit disconcerting.

Sorry, folks, but I think these photographs are wonderful. They provide a unique intimacy with the physicality of the subject person and also bring home how complex and wonderful our bodies are in all their splendor.

Mr. Boschung has provided us with a very extraordinary new way of seeing someone, and I congratulate him for it.

I am looking forward to a comparison of the same images taken by this new Z1 as well as the Nokia 1020 and the HTC1.

Don't blame the current management for Kodak's demise. Back in the early 2000's, when I was an active technology investment banker at one of the leading securities firms, I proposed to Kodak's management that their company acquire Lexar Media -- a company I had then recently helped take public.

They turned my detailed proposal down cold, articulating the position at that time that digital photography would always be a small derivative of the well-established, film-based market. Instead, Kodak half-heartedly did a licensing deal with Lexar, which clearly evidenced its disdain for solid state film.

The rest is history.
