Meh, Fuji should have released that 120mm Macro that was shown off before it would have been more attractive choice than this 80mm macro lens.

Seems like US is worse to live than some Mid-east countries.

Chaitanya S: Photographer was putting a lot of trust in those animals. Hyenas have very strong jaws and they can easily break the camera out of curiosity.

@Saurat: I never mentioned hyenas attacking(viciously), what I talked about was curiosity of hyenas. In general Hyenas are very curious animals and they will check out anything new in their territory. One of the ways of checking out new things for them is biting and even with casual bite these animals can easily break a camera.

I just hope quality doesnt take a beating after this.

onemoreguy: I wonder why no 4k. Don't all Sony 1 inch cameras now include 4k?

It indeed does 1080p internally and 4k available via external recorder.

This is a perfect action camera. Seems quite reasonable as most other action cameras come in around 700$ and have tiny sensor with fisheye lens.
Edit: B&H has listed the camera for 699$ which certainly is more aggressive than Europe pricing.

BigBen08: Still no VF. Bummer.

Its a entry level MILC, even Sony/Fuji/Olympus/Panasonic dont offer EVF on their respective entry level MILCs.

A whole lot of Niche lenses to be announced, but pretty sure there are photographers who will put these to good use.

Impressive beast, I would like to see how that focus stacking works in real life.

Chaitanya S: NASA definitely has the best collection of astro-photographs. Real shame they(and other scientific institutes) get screwed over budgetary allocations.

you are forgetting Venus and Mercury exploration missions as well. Nasa has certainly achieved a lot with that small budget.

S Yu: This isn't particularly fast for an SSD, even an old SATA interface could handle this, this might have been called fast 3 years ago, but it's on Gen.2 USB3.1 and isn't using half its bandwidth.

Internally it is a SATA ssd. M.2 SSDs(NVME) produce a lot of heat while in operation unlike SATA ssds which will run lot cooler which means its easier to design smaller casings.

walker2000: It might be more a Windows 10 issue than Surface Pro issue.

yes, its a WIn10 issue. I remember my PC running Win95 was more stable and reliable than Win10. A whole bunch of random crashes and as a whole win10 is forced onto consumers.

PETA/HSUS are worst hypocritic scum on earth.

On article Advertising vs reality: microSD memory card speed test (73 comments in total)
In reply to:

Dr_Jon: This is nearly irrelevant as what you actually mostly care about is how fast they are in your camera, which varies wildly with camera. It's nice to have fast read speed for when you put the card in a card reader, but less waiting when shooting photos is usually much more important. For example in-camera speeds:
https://www.cameramemoryspeed.com/nikon-d500/sd-and-xqd-card-speed-test/
Or speeds for a single Micro-SD card between cameras:
https://www.cameramemoryspeed.com/reviews/sd-cards/lexar-professional-1800x-uhs-ii-32gb-microsdhc-memory-card/
Nikon D500 148.5MB/s
Sony A6300 35.5MB/s

I much prefer cameramemoryspeed tests as they are the only ones performing tests with cameras along with synthetic tests.

Just out of curiosity why would someone adapt 35mm lenses onto to much larger MF camera? It doesnt make sense at all.
