mingleby: How do you get notified on photo contests? I always just see the winning entries... I have lots of good birdie shots that would've wiped the floor with the competition! :-)

Oh yeah, as far as I know there never were any 'analog' cameras, perhaps you mean "mechanical" - there is a difference...

In reply to:

smokinman88: I hope Samsung gets more serious about turning an Android device into decent take with you everywhere camera/phone like the Panasonic CM1. These 1/2.3 inch sensors are a joke.

They may be a joke to pixel-peeping camera nerds, but they work perfectly adequately in my Canon SX50HS. Just because a sensor isn't APS-C or greater doesn't mean it's useless.

Perhaps educate yourself by having a look at some of the galleries that contain pics taken by cameras with these "joke" sensors before commenting?

Laughable, really - I though that apple had the monopoly on silly pre-advertising.

Also, I think they should've had that blurb proof-read, as it makes about as much sense (nonsense-grammar notwithstanding) as the campaign it was hinting at...

Johannes Leitner: do they mean "we see the impossible" or " we are blind" ?

Yep, it is a bit confusing, in that typical Japanese "style" :-)

We can all see 'impossible' things, the magical bit is when we can achieve the 'impossible'...

Not sure if Canon are up to the task, but I'm reading to eat my words...

Hopefully something to really make up for the searing disappointment of the SX60HS!

Count Biscotti: Better titled: "A man with a $49 camera demonstrating why a $300 camera would be wasted on him"

Hipster = "Apple-device" user, yes?

So surely it would be at least a $449 camera!

mrdcjohn: after reading the first page of comments im hearing the sound a cat makes prior to pouncing on his competition! I Think the SX50HS should have been put on this list.

Yep, put me down for a SX50 vote too...

On article Dpreview Users' Poll: Best Camera of 2012? (1508 comments in total)

Why not just have poll with a drop-down selection list of all cameras released in 2012?

Can't get any more democratic than that - after all this is DPReview, not DSLRReview...

What the hell is this doing on the front page? Pretty much every major news story has a picture associated with it.

Does that mean DP review will be skipping camera reviews and news (which seems to be the case these days) and replacing it with every sensationalist tabloid headline that pops up? FFS...

In reply to:

keeponkeepingon: And still no Canon SX40 love?????????????

The SX40 outsells the P510 and has been out 4 months longer than the Nikon. When can we expect a review of the SX40?

They're saving the best 'til last! (At least they'd better be!)
