EHK: Unfortunately, for most of us, the prep that isn't eliminated with this is by far the worst part of a colonoscopy. Can't someone come up with a better product for that?
On the other hand, my wife nearly died from a colonoscopy. The doctor removed a polop and missed sealing up a "bleeder" and she ended up spending 3 days in the hospital, nearly bleeding to death. The pill cam would have avoided that.

If I had swallowed this instead of my colonoscopy half a year ago it would surely have saved me from the severe diverticulitis I had following the blow-up during the colonoscopy . So I lost a part of my colon and I am still recovering.

forest dream: Fujifilm no Black Friday deals?

Apparently not, I wonder why. Maybe because their sales are too good.

On article Zeiss ZX1 review (837 comments in total)

Anyway and all criticism granted- the design is futuristic and groundbreaking. It’s like contemporary BAUHAUS. Compared to ZX1 Fuji’s X100V looks old school, doesn’t it.

On article Hands-on with the new Sony a7C (288 comments in total)

I just can“t help: for me this is old wine on new bottles. I’m Glad to own the Fuji X100V which is much more consequent and can really be called „a new concept“ whereas A7c is not, but still nice to look at.

Dear admin, your rule „orientation should be portrait“ is contradictory to you samples and the entry photos!

I was disqualified for having posted a photo with no exact portrait dimensions while at least two others with the same problem can stay. Dear admin, I feel unfairly treated.

I‘m interested to know if Apple has finally implemented raw support for Fuji X100V to MacOS Photos.

Savannah0986: ‘As long as the health authorities do not announce that trade fairs should be stopped in Europe'

It's not about what authorities announce. It's about common sense, and at this moment I believe common sense should indicate that the wisdom of gatherings such as this should be very carefully considered. COVID isn't going away and, according to the latest indications, seems likely to amplify globally.

Berlin International Tourism Fair as well.

andjar: Selfies Macht Frei

The fact that you use a part of the Nazi slogan that is written over Auschwitz gate in this connection shows your disrespect and ignorance of towards the Holocaust and what it is all about.

Fidibus: Which Central Range is it?

Thanks. That's why I asked:
Central Range may refer to several ranges of mountains, including:

Central Range, New Guinea
Central Range, Taiwan
Central Range, Trinidad and Tobago
Central Range, Venezuela (also known as the Cordillera de la Costa Central)

DtEW: So basically Photokina goes from a biennial event... takes a short transition to a 1.5-year event... to end up as an annual event?

I think it makes sense.

Or even end up as a biannual fair? Since German computer fair CEBIT has been given up for good this might be also a possible decision. Something is going on in the chiefs`rooms.

Fidibus: Where light is - there is shadow. And so I have a little rant about my otherwise very pleasing X-T3. Its about the USB 3.0 C cable. Fuji has a socket for transferring data to your PC, in my case iMac, which can also be used for charging the battery. So good! But why on earth did they not include the cable for it? I ordered one via -bay which was the wrong one, since it can be mixed up with the bigger plug for USB 3.0 hard drives. Now I have the right one and find it very useful.
One can say that Fuji wants as to transfer our photos wireless, which can easily be done to your smartphone or table. But has someone ever tried to transfer photos via "PC Autosave"? What a fiddly, complicated task and once you succeed its sooo slow. So why not include the right cable??
Just a little rant for the otherwise gorgeous camera.

What has become quite common is not necessarily user friendly. Besides my Fuji XT20 had a cable.

Using the SD card for transferring depends on where your slot is on your computer. I find it rather inconvenient to always fiddle the card on the nearside of my mac. So I got accustomed to using a USB cord.

In reply to:

fishy wishy: I expect it will be pap reminiscent of the iffy Sigma ultrawides of the early 2000s except the Tamron will feel more hollow and plasticky.
If you've ever had an underperforming cheap ultrawide you will know the frustration involved. Save yourself pain and get something good no matter which model it is.

Pap ala pap
