On article Opinion: Enthusiast compacts have finally come of age (492 comments in total)

I just get that disgusting feeling when I see that someone sends the camera back for so stupid reasons... And then someone will buy it as "open box", or whatever...
Just because: "my mama said it wouldn't fit in her purse"!!!
Spoiled American consumers...

Ot would've been a total hot if it had 180° rotatable screen... Wouldn't? Like, it's a Facebook model and I cannot make controlled selphie?

Well, if they didn't "look into this" they would lose many, many customers… they've been doing terrible cameras lately, flawed…

As far as technicalities go: "only changes are related to how you hold and operate the camera" really? Only?

On article First look: Sony QX10 and QX100 mobile cameras (45 comments in total)

With such a limited options, QX10 is much better option! For 500usd I'll find at least two smaller and much better photo solutions!

On article Sony Cyber-shot DSC-QX100 First-impressions Review (154 comments in total)

With that price and size it has to have all that have real camera! RAW and ISO above all!
With such a limited options I see QX100 as overpriced and oversized toy, in photographic sense - absolutely useless...
In balance with all the aspects, QX10 is much better option! Much more pocketable, much cheaper and offers one thing phones certainly lack: large zoom!
Card slot is ok, but zoom and sutter controll are absolute excess! It should have been stripped of all details that could be handled by camera! Software could control focus and shutter separately, and lens has zoom ring already...
Very unlike Sony to introduce half thought product... It's for very narrow audience.
Shame... :-(

Desirable!
Don't be fooled by the price, though... it is "Art" series... there will probably be pro models which will cost much more!
I assume that Art will be in the "low build quality / high performance" sector.

Good review! Shame for the strange VR problem at crucial speeds...

In reply to:

ClearGlass: One issue that was not mentioned, is if you purchase Nikon's Grip and opt to use a D4 battery, you must also purchase a charger for the battery. For the record, the charger is $309.00 at Amazon.

In total, if you do the math for Nikon's Grip "MB-D12" ($397), a D4 battery "EN-EL18" ($145) , the Chamber Cover ($30.00), and a D4 battery charger ($309), you're going to be spending $881.00.

I'm all for saving money, but quality does matter. Then again, if you rarely use your grip, you might as well give the Vertax a try and see if you can live with it.

Naturally there are cheaper battery options for Nikon's Grip, but the review did leave out a very important point, when it brought up using the D4 battery in conjunction with Nikon's new D800/E Grip.

Yup! I bought MB-D10 in time and the cover for "big" battery... it seemed so good! When I went in another store for the battery and saw the price + the charger! Never bought it... :(
Went for AA's.

Nikons price is off the scale with those new grips... absolutely insane.
Nikon's are not of a perfect quality either. What you said of Vertax: "The AF-on and shutter buttons don't have quite the same positive travel as the equivalent controls on the D800's body, but they don't feel dry or 'clicky'." is absolutely the same as with MB-D10 for D300/700!!! Every time, for FOUR years I turn my camera to vertical, I misfire at least two or three shots until I accustom to much softer buttons... bummer! Never had that problem with vertical grip for D200, also original!
So, since Nikon's are degrading in quality, they do not deserve that kind of money, and 400 dollars is absolute lowest... give that Vertax a chance - it is reviewed by this site, so as I saw - it works!
@niciphore - yours is for 5DMKIII - not same... don't mix...

Stop using "all but"... it was never used until some months ago on this site...
It is absolutely unclear idiom and very hard to put in context on such a technical site as this one...

Where is exposure lock from previous models? And metering switch was very useful, why remove it?
And, yes... DP is going south.
Leave all but cameras to other sites!!! Do what you did the best!
You are too much moving, changing officies, employers... do the JOB!

Reilly Diefenbach: Exciting stuff for photgraphers! Imagine a 4K 60" showing your jpgs and vids.

60" HD is more than enough! Spend money on something else...

I love the performance on ISO 50, 100 and 200. That's what I needed.
But I am also very pleased that until 1600 is a great performer... very usable.
For more than that, well, buy something that's meant to be PRO!
