FRANCISCO ARAGAO: Another victim of mobile phones.

Sorry but I have never seen a mobile phone on a helmet, bike handlebar, surf board, or any of hundred other setups used to record action.
It is more everyone had one that wants one so why buy another.

He left out many more short comings. Too bad the buyers are so insecure.

zubs: BOOM! Canikon,didn't see that one coming.

At $3,500 plus with tax, I doubt many will ever want to see it coming or going.

On article Opinion: Bring on the 70-200mm equivalents (347 comments in total)

The only thing magic about 70-200 is that it is a great range on DX. It would suck for me on FX. I would want 105-300 2.8 for FX, not 50 - 140 for DX. There was never anything magic about 70 - 200 on 35mm.

Jonathan F/2: It's a phone. Big whoop.

Yes to you it is. To the rest of the world it is a pocket computer that happens to have a phone and camera included.

peevee1: Do you even need focusing on the sensor this small? Wouldn't DoF be like from 2ft and up when focused at hyperfocal? And who cares about focusing speed for macro?

You actually do need focus. Pick yours up and see.

In reply to:

brianj: It provides a very expensive P&S camera without any zoom, I wonder why people fall for it.

It is a pocket computer first. It is a phone second. It is a camera third. This should be simple enough.

In reply to:

Boss of Sony: TWO REASONS WHY CAMERA COMPANIES ARE LOSING MONEY: 1. Capitalism is dying (finally), because it is based on faulty mathematics, so it has to end at some point. 2. NOBODY CARES ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY ANYMORE. The only people who care are the obsessives who think looking at an inferior 2-D representation of something on a screen is better than appreciating the real thing with your eyes in real time. Now that everone has a camera, people are waking up and thinking, what the hell is the point of photography? Why don't I just look at the world with my eyes and stop wasting valuable resources and valuable time doing a pointless activity?

Clueless or trying to be funny?

dr8: if by "losses" they figure 'em like the rest of corporate America, then that simply means - 'Hey, we did not make as much PROFIT as we thought/planned/hoped/told our investors/ we would.' - It does not mean that actual $$$ left their is pointed out that profit was 1 cent MORE per share than what "analysts" THOUGHT it would be.

GAAP loss. Do you know what that is?

BlueBomberTurbo: Considering Apple's quote during the speech:

"It used to be that to take better pics, you just learned to become a better photographer."

Apparently Apple doesn't think much about professional photographers. At all. They're certainly not getting my money.

Why would a professional photographer care what kind of camera a cell phone has. The best are barely good enough to take a picture of a grocery list.

Mahmoud Mousef: It's really simple.
Social networking sites are a marketer's wet dream and a dream for central planners and profile-building global spying agencies.

You (and your kids) are the product. Make no mistake about it. You are exploitable to the maximum extent of the law. In case you haven't noticed, there is no law. EVERYTHING you do online is being recorded, including your phone calls and Skype calls.

Your details, pics and associations are shared with many companies in back-room deals; you have agreed to this. If you are OK with your associations and content being exploited by marketers and shared with government, insurance and god-knows-what-else, continue using these 'free' services.

If you're OK with these spies spying on you, that's fine. Just don't say anything critical of your so-called leaders or you may find yourself on the receiving end of a big stick real quick.

You are not in charge of your content. Your content and activities are there to be sold and exploited.

You are having a really difficult time are't you?
