Mistajolly: One day, some brave manufacturer will allow the consumer to program their own modes.

Or, some volunteer hacker/s will do it for them! :)

I own 128 cameras: This is Sad, I just selected these guys as my manufacturer of choice in 2014. I'm fully outfitted with a GH4, GX8, GX850, and 7-9 lenses. I have cages, lighting for it and was about to drop a grand on the new Atomos releasing this month.

Guess I'll take the loss, hurt my back again and move back to Nikon. But where's my 4K then? Sony maybe, Canon -No, Pentax - No. Not Olympus.

Thanks Panasonic - You just can't trust these guys.

Well, my 8 years old GH1 is still going strong. I just bought a new G85 and I expect it to serve me at least as long. If Pana lenses "will resell for dirt", I'll be a happy camper. ;) But, to each his own...
However, I don't think Panasonic will stop camera production completely. Just cut down on P&S that are being murdered by smartphones anyway, and keep making mirrorless. Just MO.

krassphoto: "Mission" is very much possible. A couple of years ago a bank here in Boropark, Brooklyn was "worked" the same way, through the roof, and thieves got away with depository boxes.

@PeteQuad. I don’t live in Brooklyn. I too moved many years ago for various reasons and quality of life was one of them. But I still have my business there and drive every day from NJ. And I, definitely, don’t talk down to those who live there and don’t measure everybody with the same ruler. Brooklyn, of course, is not the best place to live, but not the worst either. Believe it or not, a lot of people pay insane $$ to move there. Some of them even know how to spell.
Due to attitudes, I believe your attitude of a “spelling cop” is one of the reasons people are leaving DPR. This site is about photography, not linguistics. People who come here are from different parts of the globe, of different backgrounds, education and native languages, and your snobby comment was totally off-tune here. Just MHO.
Btw, I work in BOROUGH Park, but it’s been also called “Boro Park” or “Boropark” by locals for ages, whether you like it or not. But, of course, none of them can spell…

I guess he's totally ok with that as long as they spell correctly.

That's why you, probably, left Brooklyn. Too much about spelling...
From Wikipedia:
Borough Park (also spelled Boro Park) is a neighborhood in the southwestern part of the borough of Brooklyn, in New York City in the United States. The neighborhood covers an extensive grid of streets between Bensonhurst to the south, Bay Ridge to the southwest, Sunset Park to the west, Kensington to the northeast, Flatbush to the east, and Midwood to the southeast.

Nothing is zero cost, tonywong. But there are reasons for machines replacing people.

On article Throwback Thursday: Our first cameras (391 comments in total)

Nice throwback, brings lots of memories! My first cameras were Soviet "Lubitel 2" and "Smena 8M". I got them as birthday gifts on the same day from different relatives, I think I was 12 or 13, and you can't imagine how proud and cool I felt. But I still looked at my Dad's Zenit E like it was Rolls Royce or something. Back then we developed our own film and printed our own prints, sticking them to the window for gloss. Lol! Seems like I smell the chemicals as I'm typing this.
My first digital was a beautiful Minolta A1. It revived my partially faded photography passion and at first I literally didn't let it out of my hands until I bought my first DSLR - Canon Digital Rebel. Minolta A1 still works, btw!!

On article Ask the staff: electronic or optical viewfinder? (892 comments in total)

Like it was said already, it's a matter of personal preferences. We are way too spoiled by technology these days. Shooting both digital and film, I, personally, would prefer OVF only if it's paired with an actual rangefinder. Otherwise it's hard to beat the convenience of today's EVF.

ttran88: Trump will make sure this never happens again!!!

@McBriteSide. What in the world does Trump and his "all-out war" have to do with this particular article? Those police/photog situations have been going on since, probably, the first camera was invented, regardless of presidents, and has been discussed millions of times everywhere, including this site.
Btw, if you read the article, Mannie Garcia was charged in 2011, guess who was the president back then. Take you political preferences to off-topic forum.
