mick232: When you look at the shadow area around the boy's feet, do you also get the impression that the shadow is somehow moving?

First, I do not get any impression of the shadow moving or any other anomalies, but personal perceptions certainly vary. Second, after zooming in on the photo, I think the batter is actually a girl, not that it matters to your post really.

On article Five useful photo apps for travelers (68 comments in total)

This site caters primarily to photographers, whether amateur or professional. I will readily admit that most humans visiting this site, whether they consider themselves "photographers" or not, have some form of a smart phone capable of decent photography while traveling. But given the nature of DPR, my hope when I saw the headline of this article was to see a collection of smart phone apps that would be helpful for photographers while shooting photos on other gear. The apps listed were all geared toward those using their phone to take photos, rather than those using their phone to assist them to take photos with more competent gear. This may be useful information, but not what I was looking for here. I did download Snapseed to check out based on other posts, though.

requa: TO all those comparing the "DSLR" mod to other smart phone add-on lenses, bear in mind that the original Zeiss camera mod includes a lens and sensor (1/2.3"). It does not simply modify the optics of the built-in camera. I am assuming the "DSLR" mod will follow suit, but we'll see. It's no APS-C or even 1", but at least it's much more sensor than a typical phone.

Yes, I meant the Hasselblad mod. My mistake. My point was that if that mod essentially adds a P&S lens and sensor to the phone's processor rather than augmenting the phone's lens and sensor, the DSLR version will likely do the same. Thanks for the correction.

Mike FL: "DSLR" = Digital single-lens reflex. "Reflex"= Reflex mirror.

Brittany Hillen is lost or Motorola?

DPR REALLY needs to hire an editor to proofreading articles before publishing.

I understand your point and agree that this would be closer to MILC as bubblyboo commented, but you should also be more careful to proofread your own comment before criticizing the lack thereof by DPR editors.

On article Throwback Thursday: Minolta's prosumer DiMAGE 7 (216 comments in total)

I had the DiMAGE 7Hi back in 2004. I still miss the manual zoom function, and really appreciated the auto-switching EVF (switch to EVF when held to the eye). This tank certainly flt like a "real" camera hanging around your neck. Between its size and semi-pro look, I actually had a passer-by ask me if I had a studio once when I was in the middle of the Brooklyn bridge photographing Manhattan. I felt special :-)

On article Canon patent shows curved sensor design (105 comments in total)
In reply to:

nimrod1212: I'm surprised this hasn't been attempted already. Not only vignetting would be improved.

Perhaps you missed the part where the Canon version is flat across most of the sensor and curved only toward the edges, resulting in a thinner total package. I don't know if it'll work, but it is worth exploring.

Too much competition from Sigma?

I wouldn't want to carry that beast around.

keeponkeepingon: Isn't this just a casio tryx knockoff?

I'd say closer the the Casio Exilim phone I still have in a drawer somewhere.

Samuel Dilworth: Page 8: we finally hear the story about the different grips! That’s a weird one. As usual, I prefer the one I can’t get, i.e. the US model. I would love to hear why European customers prefer bulbous grips while Americans prefer style. These camera companies are utterly inscrutable.

You know you’re in Britain when your trade show has a prim little garden. Fantastic.

Canon USA is bundling the alternative larger grip with the camera if purchased directly (otherwise it's a $30 accessory).

AlanG: It is absolutely amazing that an airline would do this kind of detective work to find her. And then offer her a flight too. It would be a really funny story if she flew out there and her luggage got lost.

There used to be a site at IFoundYourCamera.net where people would post photos from found cameras trying to reunite them with the owners. It now appears that this site no longer exists, and the closest thing may be a similarly named FB page. I avoid FB on principal, but it may be worth remembering if you ever lose your gear.
