The current lineup of MyPassport Drives are quite nice - well designed and understated - yet it leaves an impression due to it's consistence design language. I have bought at least 10 of them.

Looks like Fuseproject ruined the lineup - most Fuseporject designs are based on same cookie cutter pattern irrespective of the product (They designed the overpriced and awful jawbone activity trackers with similar pattern) ...

Truely hope WD doesn't replace it's current lineup with this overdone eyesore. They can sell it in MoMA as some special edition for an extra premium.

On article Samyang goes Premium with MF lens range (58 comments in total)

I like Samyang for bringing affordable yet high quality lenses for the masses.
But sad to see that these lenses are a ripoff of Zeiss Batis Lenses!
They could have easily invested for an original Samyang design.

NoMirror99: Dear Apple, you've made a serious error. Release a standard iP7 with dual lenses immediately. I will not carry around a phudding phablet.
Please vote below.

LG and few Chinese phone makers have been making dual lens phones for quite some time. Apple is finally catching up.

LJ - Eljot: That last picture is actually really good. The IQ is also good enough for only screen size. If you enlarge it to 1:1 it looks very blury.

True. I used it for some time and the colors were quite okay for my taste - not punchy at all....

On article Throwback Thursday: the Samsung NV10 (75 comments in total)

I bought one - mainly for it's unique design and the F16 inspired interface. It worked fine for sometime - before the flash stopped folding in - I guess it was a design flaw because I say another NV10 with the same issue.

After few years a few dark spots (dead pixel clusters) appeared on the display... I wish Samsung had done better quality control for such a beautiful camera.

I am surprised that DPR featured another camera that I owned after last weeks Olympus MjuII !!

On article Photoshop CC 2015.5.1 available (89 comments in total)
In reply to:

nwcs: Given their terrible Comcast-like customer service and the fact they let major bugs go unfixed for 2 months (so you're paying for the latest but don't get it) and the general sprawl of Photoshop I gave up on them. I'm not entirely opposed to the subscription model but they really should let you keep the last version if you've paid subscription for at least a year.

In any case, I'm slowly letting my Photoshop knowledge rot in favor of Affinity Photo. It's a paradigm shift but it's worth it.

Not only that - their support is known to confuse people with misinformation... once someone from Adobe support told me that the Individual License (not Student or Teacher's license) of CS6 can't be used for any commercial purpose - and should only be used to open and view files!!

I've kept some screenshots of that conversation for record.

Thanks Google!
The editing features in it are great. Hope Google integrates it in their Android apps such as Snapseed and Google photo .

On article Canon announces EF 50mm F1.8 STM lens (309 comments in total)

Looks like Yongnuo forced Canon to upgrade their shoddy EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens by giving a similar lens (better in some aspect like 7 vs 5 aperture blade) for less than half the price...

Canon users should thank Yongnuo.

On article More things we found cut in half (CP+ 2015 edition) (136 comments in total)

Does anyone know how do they cut these lenses in halves?
Do they cut each component separately and carefully assemble them back? Or do they slice up a whole lens at one go?
Always been in mystery to me.

On article Just Posted: Nikon D600 In-depth Review (498 comments in total)

The dust seems to be a problem in the first batches. But now I can see few people are saying they don't have such amount of dust problem (even in this page you can find such comment below). Does this mean Nikon has started resolving this problem internally?

Is the dust problem there in the recently bought (within last 1 or 2 weeks) cameras?

Why is no one from Nikon speaking out?

Why Nikon is not talking about the dust issue at all?!
Should we buy D600 or wait?

But where is the review by DPReview?!
When is it coming?

Fox Fisher: I don't understand why people are suprised by the sony sensor. For certain product segments, it may actually be cheaper to buy them from a supplier than developing a new in-house one. It's basic capitalism.

I thought Nikon does, for some of their cameras at least...
