Glass Jaw's recent activity

  • The cabal of Japanese camera manufacturers knows to do only one thing in the face of shrinking demand. No, it's not to innovate. It's to raise prices. Their foolishness paves the way for China to ...
  • It is NOT. QLED is and LED. It is nothing like OLED and is a term created by Samsung merely to obfuscate. Back on topic, most top-tier TVs--whether LED or OLED--have very, very good out-of-the-box ...
  • Replied in Well i am
    Yes, it does seem odd to see Nikon robotically issue that exorbitant quote for more than the camera is worth. They should be advising him to get a used D90 instead, not reflexively issuing a silly ...
  • Hadn't even thought of Sigma in a long time until I saw the thread in the Open forum. I imagine the same must be true of many others. People vote with their feet. I can't speak for all of them, but ...
  • They had no business telling you to leave. Stop photographing their kids--maybe. But leave--hell no. But in the interest of your wellbeing, you did the right thing, because with their disease of ...
  • Couldn't be further from the truth. Plenty of examples, such as printers, PS5 and XBOX, and even Amazon Kindles, all sold for close to or even less than what it costs. In some cases, the products ...
  • Some say this is the ultimate "more money than brains" camera.

  • Replied in I changed
    Is your photo an example of serious architectural photography? There are conspicuous halos around the trees and cross? Fixing verticals in post won't really diminish such an image more than it ...
  • Replied in And ... ?
    There's a BIG difference between the barriers involved in going to a store to buy something readily available vs. starting a business to make that product. Your conception of "free to buy" does not ...
  • Not unusual. Could be any number of reasons why they joined and now have newfound reservations... Maybe they became smarter over time, perhaps hearing stories of people who were bankrupted by the ...
  • When dealing with loan sharks and shrewd merchants, one can never be too concerned about ones credit rating.
  • You should get the VA monitor. I've seen VA next to IPS, and images look much nicer on VA, which doesn't have that nasty contrast-sapping corner IPS glow. As long as you keep your head centered, ...
  • Replied in And ... ?
    Here's a hint: "free to pursue" is not the same as "free to buy." Free: As was said before, one is hardly free to buy, given the various barriers--unless one's definition of free doesn't accord ...
  • Replied in And ... ?
    ...ignores barriers to entry etc etc. So, again, hardly "free to buy what you want."
  • Replied in And ... ?
    No, you're not free to buy what you want...if what you want isn't made available to you to buy.
  • I have the memory of an elephant. I remember how Nikon was rampantly claiming "impact damage" when people were experiencing the 24-70 f/2.8 stiff zoom ring problem.
  • Next, they're going to push--very hard--to sell the "virtues" of the smart camera. This will allow them to cripple them remotely when they want people to upgrade. Google's already doing it with ...
  • The world is moving faster, not slower, with each passing day.

    Not impressed by the SLOWER AF on this lens. Only gives Nikon an excuse to charge $$$ more when they release an updated model with...

  • Ah, we finally have someone who understands the obvious. Reminds me of how Leica rebrands other companies' cameras and charges $$$ more. https://www.dpreview.com/news/5721476062/leica-announces-the ...
  • It would incentivize manufacturers to make more durable gear. As it stands, the warranties are an absolute joke.  1 yr on a $15k supertele? When I just got 7 yrs on my OLED TV and can get 10 yrs on ...
