On article Did Sigma design the Olympus M.Zuiko 75mm F1.8? (200 comments in total)
In reply to:

yabokkie: it looks that there were two competing teams and one team won.

it's interesting that DPReview call Sony "big brand."
I call them third class:
1c, need no words, Canon and Nikon,
2c, make products proudly in own brand, Pentax, Oly,
3c, make products in someone else's brand (not OEM), Sony, Pana,
no confidence in their own products.

Ah yes. And Samsung manufactures the iPad and iPhone processors shamefully hiding the fact. Sure, dude!

On article Robotic Nikon cameras capture Wimbledon 2013 (25 comments in total)

Um, haven't we seen that history making revolutionary invention once or twice already? Just recently at the Olympic Games in London, using 1DX cameras on robotic mounts? Like, there:

Hello, Nikon. Glad you made it to the party, late.

On article Best DSLRs and ILCs for less than $1000 (271 comments in total)
In reply to:

Skrocki: For $479 the Canon EOS-M with 22mm F/2 STM pancake lens is a much better camera than the Panasonic GX1.

If you are James May, maybe...

On article Smartphone film scanner transfers negatives to mobile (17 comments in total)

This is probably the worst way to digitize film. I just cringe by the tought of completely destroying all advantages of film by photographing it with a low quality camera and doing a botch job on the colors afterwards. But hey, it's for Lomo. I bet the hipsters will love it.

On article New CompactFlash card to allow RAID-style 'mirroring' (100 comments in total)

Complete nonsense. You can achieve the same thing with proper wear leveling inside the cards controller firmware and using SLC NAND instead of the most peculiar MLC. Anyway I bet most card corruption comes from camera bugs and the inherent fragility of the FAT file system.

Marques Lamont: As shown here, good shots can be taken with an iPhone and processed for maximum effect.

It's not the iPhones that can't cut it. It's a capable enough tool.

But your average reporter can't cut it with an iPhone.

And there's the next guy who thinks it's the camera that makes the photo...

Plastek: Wow... there's seriously so much more traffic over Europe than US? I thought that North America is most busy region in air flight.

Let's just say that the population of Europe (excluding Russia) about matches the population of all of North America (including Alaska, Canada, Greenland) plus Central America and the Carribean. Just crammed into a much smaller area. Go figure.

If only it worked at all. Neither Firefox or Chrome are able to run the site. Chrome breaks the Albums view and Slideshows, Firefox breaks LightTable :-( It used to be old, now it's kaputt.

On article Photoshop CC: Adobe responds to reaction (1842 comments in total)
In reply to:

iaredatsun: The main problem is for users who buy a copy of Photoshop and then use it for 5 or 10 years without upgrading*. They have no need to upgrade. The new charging model costs them more.

*When I can, I still choose to use Photoshop from CS4 at work. There's nothing in CS6 that improves my work and CS4 even has a more legible interface design.

These are exactly the users Adobe is obviously not interested in ;)

On article Snapzoom brings any smartphone closer to the action (27 comments in total)

Why would I carry that instead of a superzoom camera.

You can see that in every touristic location now.

I'll call it, um... Sightpadding.

About the fire fighting technique: splashing water on the flames??? Have they never heard about minimum water high pressure spray method, minimizing the water damage (often worse than fire damage).

Might be okay for the garden variety

Yeah, and what about that guy trying to gut himself when starting the chainsaw.

Cool, huh?

I'd rather the BeagleBone, I'm sure a CameraCape is under development. The RPi is too "closed" for my liking.
