DME: What kind of people take it personally when others complain about a camera's price ?

If you don't like reading other people's complaints, move on. Unless you have shares in the company, then I can totally understand your pain and frustration.

"What kind of people take it personally when others complain..." - asking the wrong question will never get you the correct answer. you falsely assume that there are responders that are taking things personally, it's easy to attack a strawman argument you create.

In reply to:

Scales USA: While we can argue all day about the selection of images, I'm wondering how they came to change the world? Photos of multiple wars, none of them seemed to change anything, soldiers are still dying. Same with photos of poor and starving people, things have not really changed.

you are left wondering because you didn't bother to head over to their site to check the very interesting stories and videos behind the photos

gingerland: What a set of miserable gits there are on this site. As an engineer and a photographer, I found this fascinating. The point of it was to demonstrate what a clean cut could be achieved using that technique and thereby showing a very interesting cross section of the inside of a camera. What true photographer would not be interested in seeing that? Pot that in a clear resin and it would make a great decorative piece.

the irony is that those people writing here with emotional responses are most likely increasing the likelihood that articles such as these will get posted on this site by creating more discussion and adding to the total comment count. the smarter thing that they could have done to get what they want was to not react at all.

moizes 2: So what is the practical target of this barbarically made test? Power of overpressed water gear? Dead camera body turned inside out? Why?

you misunderstood, it wasn't a test.

Chuckmet: I turned the T.V. off because I'm so tired of hearing all the mean spirited political talk, even though the election's over, it continues. I thought I'd visit DP review to check out the articles and it didn't take long before I encountered more mean spirited talk, this time over the opinions of a camera or the reviewer or the photos.

it's not like spam. it's like watching t.v. in a bar with other patrons who are loud and obnoxious. you can avoid all the negativity by watching t.v. in your private space, analogously you can be reading only the d.p.review and not going into the comments section. to avoid spam adverts is a little different, you have to install ghostery or ultimate ad blocker. the t.v. equivalent would be to tape shows on a dvr and fast-forward.

Peter Galbavy: Very big "meh?"

I have had my Panasonic DMC-CM1 for almost a year, it's a two year old model and the only negative versus this is the version of Android. It's got a better sensor, it's cheaper, it's proven tech. I was hoping for so much more.

Why can't any of this hoofwomble companies at least add a real mini flash? AFAICR only one old Samsung phone/camera has a xenon flash. These LEDs are awful.

you're welcome

"...add a real mini flash?"

because xenon flash isn't necessarily better in low light conditions, you risk overpowering the ambient light, washing out the background, and introducing uncorrectable red-eye on living subjects.

"These LEDs are awful."
with a weak LED flash, you are likely to get a more balanced, natural shot.

if you are always shooting in P or Auto, then yes you can use the power of a xenon to take shots at a higher shutter speed or to fill-flash in bright sunlight. however, a more skilled photographer using a CM1 can get around those issues by using Shutter priority for moving subjects or proper composition instead of relying on external lighting for still portraits.

On article Throwback Thursday: Fujifilm F10 (121 comments in total)
In reply to:

T0ASTERvan: Purely because of necessity and afford ability, My wife purchased the FujiFilm XP60 as of this year the camera will have turned 3 years old and I'm still not convinced any FujiFilm products can compare with other like cameras. Although I carry the camera everywhere I go, I'm finding myself using the LG Rebel more than the XP60. I've actually shot myself in the foot attempting to sell or trade my XP60 just so I could purchase something better.. In my opinion, Save your green for something better and don't make the mistake I did by purchasing anything fujifilm.

as long as you learn that mistake is "assuming that an entire brand is lousy thanks to the experience of a specialized model"

Rick Knepper: "why they didn't make a FF instead of this"

Just listened to a short DPR video interview with Toshihisa Iida, Fujifilm's General Manager of the Sales and Marketing Group, and he says Fugi felt like the gap between APS-C and FF is too narrow. They wanted to go after the "top, top resolution" .

Or, the gap between their current lineup and their competition is too narrow

noflashplease: The digital era didn't kill this studio, which was an artifact from the era of the British Empire. The firm was famous for taking pictures of colonial administrators, British celebrities and Maharajahs. It appears that Bourne & Shepherd lost their main source of business with the end of colonialism and the ensuing decades when India was a closed, socialist economy. The very fact that the Indian government owns the decrepit physical building, and as the landlord allowed it to hall into such a state of disrepair, proves the point.

the word is neglect

In reply to:

skytripper: Although there are undoubtedly some photographers who take pictures with their smarphones, smartphone "photographers" are generally not photographers at all, but merely consumers who take snapshots with their smartphones. Having the ability to hold a camera in your hand and press the shutter does not make one a "photographer" any more than drawing lines on a piece of paper makes one an "artist".

" No qualification makes someone "a photographer" " - yes there is, the qualification is someone who takes photographs.

having the ability to post a comment does not make one a pundit any more than typing a sentence on a computer makes one a linguist.

In reply to:

Peiasdf: LG really screwed up with G5 and the sales number shows it. It is already the ugliest of flagships (especially after the beautiful V10) and the friend modules just make it uglier.

The camera is good, not as good processing as iPhone and Samsung and not as good hardware as HTC. I hope LG put something amazing in the V11

you're executing lg's master plan of profit exceedingly well. by creating an ugly product, people like you will comment about the beautiful V10 and buy that instead.

The Name is Bond: 78 degree field of view? What's that.

I think most of us here understand 35mm equiv better. And we're just fine with ignoring the comment arguments for those with 'equiv' issues.

it's not complicated for spies like mr. bond, but you did ask the question
